Tribulation Before THE TRIBULATION

Nowhere in the Scriptures does it promise disciples of Yahshuah Ha Mashiach a smooth problem-free life! John 16:33 promises the opposite. These years, months, and days of “pre-labor pains” leading us into the coming time of God’s wrath upon the earth have not greatly affected many of us here in the contiguous United States. I believe that is going to change, however—very soon.

The Great Divide

There is coming a great divide in America.

Division is very apparent already in our beloved United States; but just as the earthquakes and natural disasters have increased exponentially, so will division increase. A physical division of the contiguous States has been prophesied via a great earthquake (see The Solar Eclipse Omen), but it is coming into my spirit that there is coming a great divide to those who call themselves the Church.

Just as not all Israel are of Israel, so is not all who call themselves a member of the church body actually of the Church.

Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they [are] not all Israel, which are of Israel;
Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, [are they] all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these [are] not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. - Romans 9:6-8 KJV

Even Jesus in Revelation Chapters 2 and 3 speaks of those who call themselves a church but who are not part of those He considers His Bride and warns them to overcome!

You may be part of a church/ekklesia/assembly but not necessarily bound for Heaven! Those who wait to confess Jesus as their Lord after the Rapture will be the saints who will endure the Tribulation as recorded in the Book of Revelation:

And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. - Revelation 13:7 KJV

The translators for the King James Version of the Scriptures did not do us any favors by translating the Greek word ekklesia G1577 into the word “church”. This Greek word refers to “a gathering of citizens called out from their homes into some public place, an assembly”. (If you wish a deeper study on this, check out’s article The Correct Meaning of "Church" and "Ecclesia".)

I am reiterating this point because I do not know whether the true Church will see this great divide that is coming to America or be caught up to be with the Lord beforehand. Individual earthquakes have been occurring throughout the globe which we ARE subject to. However, the worldwide earthquake of the Sixth Seal is in the category of “the wrath of the Lamb”, of which the Bride of Christ is NOT subject to (see also Saved From Wrath).

Our island state of Hawaii has recently been experiencing earthquakes and a mighty volcanic eruption. Soon, I believe, the contiguous United States will experience the same thing probably in the Pacific Northwest.

Comeback of the Plagues of Egypt

To my knowledge the Scriptures do not foretell that the world will see a reenactment of the ten plagues Egypt experienced during the time of Moses. However, that is exactly what has been happening! The Youtube channel Rapture Watchers does an excellent job encapsulating prophetic signs. Back in 2017 she did a video—The Prophecies are Happening Right Before our Eyes!—that listed eight of the ten plagues of Moses that made a comeback in 2016:
Waters to blood
Gnats or lice
Swarms of flies
Animals die

One of the plagues of Egypt was darkness. The Spirit of the Lord has not shown me this will occur, but there are those who have been prophesying three days of darkness to occur worldwide before the rapture. IF this darkness is referring to what Isaiah prophesied, it is part of the wrath of the Day of the Lord and the Bride of Christ is NOT appointed to it:

Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
And I will punish the world for [their] evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. Isaiah 13:9-11 KJV

In Isaiah 66 and Revelation 12 we learn that the prophetic woman gives birth to a corporate male child before the Day of the LORD begins.  This male child is the Church, which escapes to Heaven before the woman Israel begins having birth pangs. . .

The Bride Overcomes

Everyone should be prepared for emergencies especially in these days, but those who are in Christ (i.e. have confessed Romans 10:9) NEED NOT FEAR! In my blog article Trouble for the Bride Before the Rapture I explained that although we shall have tribulation while we are in this world, we also have Christ in us and are overcomers through Him. This is why the Bride is also referred to as “he who overcometh” in Revelation Chapters 2 and 3! correlates the recent royal wedding with our upcoming Heavenly Wedding in their article Seven Major Prophecies Have Suddenly Converged. The article reminds us that the Bride who escapes in the rapture is also referred to as the “man child” of Revelation Chapter 12:

After the child's escape the woman goes into labor, which is described in great detail in Matthew 24 (known as Jesus' Olivet Discourse).  The resurrection and rapture of the Church are prophetically described in Isaiah 26 (vv. 19 and 20, respectively).  Notice that in verse 19 the resurrection is likened to the earth giving birth to the dead.  When a birth is about to occur a woman's water breaks and her cervix dilates.  When contractions begin there is pain that often feels like a burning sensation.  This is commonly called the ring of fire and if you've been to a childbirth class you may have heard the term.

The earth also has what's called the "Ring of Fire"—the most seismically active area on earth, a ring of extreme volcanism surrounding the Pacific Ocean. Guess what's smack-dab in the middle of the Ring of Fire?  The Island of Hawaii and Mt. Kilauea, which has been erupting for several weeks now. . . [Excerpt from]

What’s Next?

What is the turning point that triggers the Rapture/Tribulation? Gary of Unsealed lists some possibilities:

1. The rapture's occurrence is seemingly disconnected from specific human actions in Israel and Jerusalem and could happen before any deal is made or war occurs.

2. A deal dividing Israel and/or Jerusalem is agreed to and God intervenes with the rapture or trib (Zech. 12).

3. Israel takes all of Jerusalem in a deal and then begins rebuilding the Temple—a blasphemous thing to do—and God intervenes (Is. 66:1–6).

4. Whatever the sign of the dragon is (from Rev. 12:3—4) makes its appearance and the Church is in apparent mortal danger from satan and his minions (which may present themselves as extraterrestrial beings)—and God intervenes via the rapture.

The window of time before the Overcomers are harvested is narrowing rapidly; however, God is merciful and desires that none perish (2 Peter 3:9). I believe the world will see greater natural disasters which will hopefully awaken the spiritually slumbering people before the true Church leaves.  Just as the chosen bride Esther was instrumental in the revealing of Haman’s evil plot against the Jewish people, the catching away of the true Church and Bride of Christ will lead to the full revealing of the Luciferian elite’s New World Order plot.

Let us pray for His wisdom and guidance in these last of the last days and reach out to those He puts in our path.

Caveat: This blog is an attempt to share my spiritual journey and my understanding of the Scriptures. In the past few years that learning curve has been mostly in eschatology or the study of the end times. I do not pretend to have this all figured out. Also, I do not necessarily agree with all the beliefs of anyone whose material I reference. I seek to be led of the Spirit of God as to the sources I use, however, even Spirit-filled Christians only 'see in part' as it says in 1 Corinthians 13:12.

The Significance of May 20th

As I sought Him this past Saturday morning, the Spirit of the Lord led me to read in Exodus 20. Whenever I read Exodus, it makes me think of how God will catch His people away from the world one day soon:

I [am] the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. - Exodus 20:2 KJV

Exodus Pentecost

But as I read Chapter 20 I realized that this account was about what happened on Mount Sinai during Shavuot, known to most as Pentecost.

Shavuot is a two-day Jewish holiday that falls on the Hebrew calendar dates of Sivan 6–7. . .
Shavuot 2018 begins at sundown on Shabbat, May 19, and concludes at nightfall on Monday, May 21. The 10 Commandments are read on May 20.
My prayer time ran out as my five-year-old granddaughter needed my attention. As I was about to turn my computer off, I checked my email and saw a text that I had forwarded but forgot about. It was a prophetic word a friend sent me. The following is only a small excerpt:

GREAT HARVEST Begins Pentecost 2018
You see on Easter Sunday the Lord told me 50 days on Pentecost Sunday revival & awakening is going to breakthrough & the great harvest was going to start. I prophesied this after Easter. The 50 days would be May 20, 2018.

I set this word aside; yet, here I was coming across it this day He had led me to read about the Exodus Pentecost!

It would seem the Spirit of the Lord is reiterating that the SEASON OF THE OVERCOMER—the time of the Great Harvest—is about to begin!

The Great Harvest has a double meaning, I believe. It is speaking of the end time harvest of souls AND it is speaking of the 3-PART HARVEST before the Messiah’s Second Coming to earth. That is why in the above rhema He said, “LOOK UP!” SEASON OF THE OVERCOMER

Pentecost Wedding

Today as I sought the Lord further, I remembered that Pentecost was when  יְהֹוָהYĕhovah MARRIED Israel:

Because God desired a special people in the earth who would have the glory of God upon them, God called Abraham and made a covenant with him. The covenant that God made with Abraham was physical and it was spiritual. This covenant was not only with Abraham but also with the descendants of Abraham (Genesis 17:7). The physical descendants of Abraham are the children of Israel. The spiritual descendants of Abraham are all those who profess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior (Galatians 3:16, 29). . .

At Mount Sinai, God married the nation of Israel by betrothing Himself to them (Jeremiah 2:1-3). . . 7/edchumney

Jeremiah 2:1-3 records that on Shavuot—Pentecost—God betrothed Himself to (married) Israel. Verse 2 uses the Hebrew word kĕluwlah (espousal/betrothal) and it is the ONLY USAGE in the Old Testament!

The Scriptures indicate that it is the Overcoming Church who will be the Bride of Christ. Will Pentecost 2018 be when the Bride MARRIES the Heavenly Bridegroom? The Scriptures do not promise this at all, but for the Lord to bring all this conjoining information to my attention, I know the Heavenly Wedding cannot be far off and is very much on His mind as it is on mine!

As my caveat at the end of my blog articles indicates, I do not pretend to have the end times all figured out. I believe there is a remnant of people, born of incorruptible seed, who will be snatched up to meet their King and Bridegroom  just BEFORE the sudden destruction of the wrath of the Lamb (1 Thessalonians 5:3-4).

Rapture Watchers today posted a summation of world events with excerpts from J.D. Farag's May 10 Urgent Bible Prophecy Update. J. D. also recommends a movie that is now available on Amazon Prime called The Coming Convergence which is about this coming sudden destruction. How long God chooses to have His Overcomers upon the earth in these turbulent times is uncertain, but it won’t be much longer!

"The Lord has shown me and many others within the Body of Christ that the exponential increase in catastrophic disasters and war will be the impetus for the Great Harvest." Gold Falling on the Gentiles!

Gold Falling on the Gentiles!

Gold and Gems

“Gold is falling on the Gentiles,” said the stunned rabbi to Henry Gruver. Henry had just finished prayer walking throughout Jerusalem and had been resting on a bench when this rabbi sat next to him and began a conversation. Henry asked the rabbi what he thought about how in 1989 gold was falling from heaven upon people who were worshipping Jesus, and was Henry surprised by his answer!

“In the ancient Hebrew,” replied the elderly rabbi, “before the bridegroom comes to take his bride, he always sends her a gift of gold by midnight.” Six Hours in Heaven and Jesus Coming Soon!

Yahshua, our Heavenly Bridegroom, has been showering His (mostly) Gentile Bride with gold at least since 1989 to signal His promise to return for Her. Ten years later in 1999 I too experienced a gift of gold from Heaven.

About another decade after that, my daughter shared how a friend of hers found a large diamond in her Bible while worshipping in a service. Recently, a friend of mine sent pictures of gems from Heaven others had received.

Is this Scriptural?

The Book of Genesis relates the story of the servant of Abraham, who, after his request for Rebecca to marry Isaac was granted, “brought forth jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment, and gave them to Rebecca; he gave also to her brother and to her mother precious things” (Genesis 24:53).

Jesus has been signaling His return for His Beloved for quite some time now. There is no definite sign of the catching away--harpazo--or rapture of the Overcoming Church ; however, the ULTIMATE SIGN of the coming of Jacob’s Trouble has occurred and by default it signals the soon rapture because the Bride of Christ is NOT appointed to Jacob’s Trouble (related article: Saved from Wrath):

Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child. - Isaiah 66:7 KJV

Isaiah 66:7 foretells the birth of a man child that will occur BEFORE travail—BEFORE Jacob’s Trouble. This prophecy has a dual fulfillment (physical and spiritual) as the commentary by A. R. Fausset agrees. The first time this was fulfilled was when Israel became a nation state overnight (Isaiah 66:8). The second fulfillment will be when the man child of Revelation 12:5 is caught up (harpazo):

And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and [to] his throne. - Revelation 12:5 KJV

The promise to this man child that he will rule all nations was given by Jesus Christ Himself:

And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. - Revelation 2:26-27 KJV

Revelation 12:1-2—Sign of Jacob’s Trouble

The sign of the travailing woman in 2017 (Revelation 12:1-2), as I have stated before, was THE ULTIMATE SIGN of the coming of Jacob’s Trouble. The war that is now brewing with Israel and Iran as I write this article I believe is a prelude to this and may be the start of the fulfillment of Psalm 83:

“They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from [being] a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.” -Psalm 83:4 KJV

If my understanding of Psalm 83 is correct, Israel’s Defense Force will be victorious. Even well known scholars do not claim to have Israel’s prophesied wars all figured out, but to see what conclusion they have come to read This Means WAR!

It is my opinion that Israel does not give the Lord credit for their Psalm 83 victory which opens the door to the Gog-Magog attack. In line with brother Salus I believe Israel as a nation will continue to reject the true Messiah and instead return to the Law and the rebuilding of the Temple. It will not be until Israel has seen the abomination of desolation by the Antichrist (which occurs 3-1/2 years into the 7-year Tribulation) and escaped into the wilderness that her people will come to believe on Y’shua as their Messiah. This Means WAR!

Tachos—Acceleration Time 

The Spirit of Christ has been revealing to God’s people that the world is about to enter or has already entered a time of acceleration and the coming Great Harvest (SEASON OF THE OVERCOMER!). Just as in the birth process when a woman goes from erratic Braxton-Hicks contractions then into actual labor, the world will quickly move from the past few years of pre-Tribulation pains into the actual tumultuous 70th week of Daniel—The Tribulation. The Lord has shown me and many others within the Body of Christ that the exponential increase in catastrophic disasters and war will be the impetus for the Great Harvest.

The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified [it] by his angel unto his servant John: - Revelation 1:1 KJV

Tachos” is the Greek word that is translated “shortly” in the above verse. It is pronounced a bit differently than the stuffed folded tortilla we call “tacos”. These two words actually have something in common--tachos refers to something coming to pass “quickly, shortly, speedily” and tacos are a food you can make quickly. At least that is how I remember what tachos means. . .

A tachometer measures revolution per minute, so Jesus here was showing us that when we see things revving up with the beginning of pains (referred to as Braxton-Hicks contractions in human labor), know that the TRUE LABOR IS CLOSE BEHIND! Oh Little Town of Bethlehem

End of Fig Tree Generation

With the deaths of prominent men of God such as Bob Jones, Billy Graham, and recently Chuck Missler, the Lord seems to be pointing to the end of the Age of Grace. The most significant thing signaling this, however, is the coming celebration for Israel of the 70th Anniversary of the replanting of their nation state this coming May 14.

That means the time of acceleration cannot be very long. Since 2017 Israel has been celebrating anniversaries fulfilling every definition of a generation:

". . . the first Zionist Congress (120th), the Balfour Declaration (100th), the UN General Assembly Partition Resolution (70th), the Six-Day War (50th), Anwar Sadat’s visit to Jerusalem (40th), and the first intifada (30th)." (Source:

Disregarding untimely or unnatural deaths due to epidemics, famine, and war, there is evidence in the Scriptures and in recent history to support a 70 to 80 year life span for the past 3000 years. . .

For all our days are passed away in thy wrath:  We spend our years as a tale that is told.  The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off and we fly away. -Psalm 90:9,10

If we assume that a generation is 70 to 80 years long today, that means there is only 10 years within which the 7-year Tribulation must take place because Jesus said that all He foretold in Matthew 24 would take place before the end of the “fig tree” generation:

Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer [is] nigh:
So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, [even] at the doors.
Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Matthew 24:32-34 KJV

The Heavenly Wedding

My conjecture is the time of acceleration may be 3 years long or less. With events related to Israel heating up, there may not be much time left at all to extend the wedding invitation to the lost before the rapture of the Bride of Christ, which will most likely occur simultaneously with the start of Jacob’s Trouble (watch J.D. Farag's EXCERPT from April 29, 2018, Prophecy Update). 

Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. Matthew 22:8-10 KJV

And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: - Matthew 22:11 KJV

It is my belief that only those who are clothed upon with the Holy Spirit (Luke 24:49) will be swept up by the Bridegroom and taken to Heaven for the great wedding.

He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. - Revelation 3:5 KJV

How I yearn for His coming. It won’t be long now. . .
