Are you Rapture Ready? - Part 3

Are you Rapture Ready? - Part 3

 

 

For those of you who have been following this series, you will be able to testify of the mind-blowing truth which has been revealed.

We have had an influx of testimonies, feedback and questions from around the World of people who have been saved for 20 years and even more, where they are saying that they have never heard such undiluted truth shared on this topic, even in all the years of their salvation.

In this article specifically, we will be concluding the teaching on the rapture, and what those who are left behind can expect. This is one of the most eye-opening articles you may ever read, and I actually ask of you that you would share these articles on “Rapture Ready or Not” with your loved ones who may be lost, backslidden, or even those who simply don’t have an understanding of the end times.

We ended off the previous part of this with the 7 seals, and the 7th seal being the prelude to the 7 trumpets. 

“When He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.”
Revelation 8:1 (NKJV)

 

This “silence” can be compared to the silence that you experience in a courtroom when a judge enters to sentence the condemned criminal. 

This is to announce the 7 trumpet judgments that are about to be given by the 7 angels. 

Here, Heaven stands speechless and spellbound for ½ hour. Something terrible is about to happen on earth (Revelation 8:2,6) and time is given for those on earth to think about God’s judgment.

Now, let’s delve into these 7 trumpets, and what each of these release upon the earth.

  1. The Seven Trumpets
  • 1st Trumpet: Vegetation is Struck
“The first angel sounded: And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.”
Revelation 8:7 (NKJV)

 

For those who are left behind who haven’t already perished, they will see hail and fire mingled with blood, 1/3 of the trees and all green grass burned up.

  • 2nd Trumpet: The Seas are Struck
“Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. And a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.”
Revelation 8:8-9 (NKJV)

This could be an atomic bomb or a great burning meteor, but suddenly 1/3 of the sea becomes blood, 1/3 of all living creatures in the sea die, and 1/3 of the ships are destroyed.

  • 3rd Trumpet: The Waters are Struck
“Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.”
Revelation 8:10-11 (NKJV)

Fresh water is polluted and drinking water becomes contaminated. Wormwood is a perennial herb, which is extremely bitter and destructive to the human body.

  • 4th Trumpet: The Heavens are Struck
“Then the fourth angel sounded: And a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. A third of the day did not shine, and likewise the night. 13 And I looked, and I heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!”
Revelation 8:12-13 (NKJV)

 

When the heavens are struck, the sun will lose 1/3 of its power, and it will become extremely cold upon the earth. Even the angel beseeches those left behind to look out, to repent, because the next 3 trumpets are even worse.

  • 5th Trumpet: The Locusts from the Bottomless Pit
“Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit. Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man. In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them.
The shape of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle. On their heads were crowns of something like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men. They had hair like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots with many horses running into battle. 10 They had tails like scorpions, and there were stings in their tails. Their power was to hurt men five months. 11 And they had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon.
12 One woe is past. Behold, still two more woes are coming after these things.
Revelations 9:1-12 (NKJV)

Hell is let loose on earth. For five months, people will be tormented and want to commit suicide to get relief, but they won’t be able to. Those who are left behind after the rapture will experience “hell on earth” except that actual hell will be much worse!

  • 6th Trumpet: The Angels from the Euphrates
13 Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” 15 So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind.
Revelation 9:13-15 (NKJV)

 

In Revelation 6:8, ¼ of the earth’s population were killed, yet now, we read of another 1/3 of those remaining being killed. That means that ½ of the earth’s population has now been killed up until this point.

  • 7th Trumpet: The 7 bowls

The 7th Trumpet brings 7 bowls of wrath for the earth.

“Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, “Go and pour out the bowls of the wrath of God on the earth.”
Revelation 16:1 (NKJV)
2. The Seven Bowls

 

  • 1st Bowl: Loathsome Sores
“So the first went and poured out his bowl upon the earth, and a foul and loathsome sore came upon the men who had the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image.”
Revelation 16:2 (NKJV)

 

These sores will be like running, painful, stinking boils or ulcers.

  • 2nd Bowl: The Sea Turns to Blood
“Then the second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it became blood as of a dead man; and every living creature in the sea died.”
Revelation 16:3 (NKJV)

Now death comes to everything in the oceans.

  • 3rd Bowl: The Waters Turn to Blood
“Then the third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.”
Revelation 16:4 (NKJV)

 

Before only 1/3 of water was turned bad, but now, all the water is turned to blood. 

  • 4th Bowl: Men are Scorched
Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and power was given to him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory.”
Revelation 16:8-9 (NKJV)

Before we saw the sun lose 1/3 of its power, and there was extreme cold. But now, the sun has increased in power, and there is extreme heat.  Before there were boils and sores, but now there will be blisters on top of them! There will be no water to satisfy their thirst or soothe their wounds. A small taste of hell to come. All this so they might repent and turn to God, but verse 9 shows that they did not.

  • 5th Bowl: Darkness and Pain
“Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom became full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues because of the pain. 11 They blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and did not repent of their deeds.”
Revelation 16:10-11 (NKJV)

 

When Jesus died to take away our sins, there were 3 hours of darkness over the earth. Now, there is complete darkness because of their rejection of Him. People will not be able to see in this darkness and will run into things, bumping their sores and blisters, falling into the rivers of blood. 

  • 6th Bowl: Euphrates Dried Up
“Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared.”
Revelation 16:12 (NKJV)

 

This bowl speak of preparation for the Battle of Armageddon.

  • 7th Bowl: The Earth is Utterly Shaken
17 Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, “It is done!”
Revelation 16:17 (NKJV)

 

Satan’s kingdom is crumbling. The earth, which was Satan’s domain, has been devastated beyond all human recognition. Do the words “It is done” and “It is finished” sound familiar? God’s plan of salvation was completed at the cross when Jesus said, “It is finished”. Now, for those who rejected it, “It is done”. 

There is still time for you and I… 

Do you see why this time before the rapture is called the “Age of Grace”? Everything that you have just read here will happen, literally. But, you can thank God that He is a God of love and grace, and that He has provided us with a way of escape through Jesus Christ. He is the God of love, but He is also the God of justice.

Understand that there is only one way that we can escape this great tribulation.

Know that as sure as you are reading this now, it will be too late after the rapture. You must come to Jesus Christ now – before it is eternally too late. Simply call upon His Name, give your heart to Him, and you will be saved!

21 And it shall come to pass
That whoever calls on the name of the Lord
Shall be saved.’
Acts 2:21 (NKJV)
