The World's 911 is Our 311

First of all, I want to tell you that I am not a “numbers person”. My calling is prophetic, but God doesn’t speak much to me through numbers. HOWEVER, for years—maybe even for two decades now—the Holy Spirit has my eyes catch 9:11 on the clock. At first it was only a weekly occurrence, but lately I have been noticing it once or twice a day!

My initial impression years ago was that the Lord was showing me the urgency of the times we were living in. And, of course, I thought of Psalm 91:1.

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. - Psalm 91:1 KJV

In our attempt to discern the signs of the times (Matthew 16:2-3) there have been high watch dates posted and passed, posted and passed, etc. My attempt in this article is not to set a date, but because of the heightened frequency of sighting 9:11, I began to seek the Lord anew regarding what this might mean.

What Brethren are Saying Re. 911

I realize you can find whatever you want to find on Youtube, but I do believe there is something to this when brothers and sisters in Christ who we discern as being genuine in spirit start sharing a common theme. And “911” is one of them:

Thanks to the thread of Comments in Rev12daily's October 26, 2018, post I was led to listen to Colleen Minter’s video Bringing things together! Jesus is coming! At around the 7-minute mark she mentions 911.

Also the video by Many Fish was mentioned—Fire Ritual Trump 72. 911! 6 4 9 Completion Separation 10/31! At around the 6-minute mark he refers to 649 and the Greek word apo that usually denotes “departure, separation”. At the 6:15 mark, he outlines in red “1 year; 9 months; 11 days” which is what 649 days equals.

In my analysis of Ken Peter's prophetic word, I noted that he spoke of “a day of separation”:

There is a principle of separation in the Scriptures and the Rapture of the Overcoming Man Child is one of those separations that will occur. (See the ‘Principle of Separation’ section in  Saved From Wrath.)

We are looking any day now for our “departure”, our “gathering together” unto the Lord when we will be “caught up” and literally snatched from danger!

In 1st Thessalonians 4:17, the term caught up is the Greek word Harpazo which means to be carried off by force; or the Aramaic/Hebrew word Netchatef which means kidnapped ... to meet the Master in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Master -- Yahshua is not returning to the earth here; the "Church" meets Him in the air and ever remains with Him. [Source:]

There is the element of the Bride of Christ being 'kidnapped'. This is noteworthy because in the Hebrew marriage the groom abducts his bride

The Wedding of the Messiah [excerpt from The Seven Festivals of the Messiah by Edward Chumney]:

...The bridegroom would return with a shout, "Behold, the bridegroom comes" and the sound of the ram's horn (shofar) would be blown...
He would abduct his bride, usually in the middle of the night, to go to the bridal chamber where the marriage would be consummated. This is the full marriage, known in Hebrew as nesu'in... 
The bride and groom will go to the wedding chamber, or chadar in Hebrew, where the marriage will be consummated. They will stay in that wedding chamber for seven days, or a week. At the end of the seven days, the bride and groom will come out from the wedding chamber...
The word week in Hebrew is shavuah. It means a "seven." It can mean seven days or seven years. An example of the Hebrew word for week (shavuah) meaning seven years can be found in Daniel 9:24, as it is written, "Seventy weeks [shavuah, 490 years] are determined upon thy people..." and in 9:27, "And he [the false Messiah known as the antichrist] shall confirm the covenant with many for one week [shavuah, seven years]...." The week referred to in Daniel 9:27 is known to Bible believers as the tribulation period. The Jewish people understand this time to be the birthpangs of the Messiah known in Hebrew eschatology as the Chevlai shel Mashiach. This is taken from Jeremiah 30:5-7. [Source:]

The world’s 911 will be our 311!

Many Fish, in the Description section under his above-mentioned video, quotes Revelation 3:11:

Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. - Revelation 3:11 KJV

“There is a sword coming upon the land” Todd of IT IS FINISHED rightly said in his video Hoshana Rabbah/Last Great Day in 360 day Prophetic Year?! "Phoenix" Rises 11/11 where he also refers to 911 and 311. It seems he agrees that the world’s 911 will be our 311 (Revelation 3:11)!

As I’ve shared before, the announcement of the Mideast Peace Plan will likely begin the 1 Thessalonians 5:3 “sudden destruction” OR it will result first in America’s fall with The Tribulation quickly following thereafter:  

I believe this great shaking of the earth will occur in America. Why America? Many prophetic voices are warning that the U.S. involvement in taking land from Israel (Genesis 15:18 and 17:7Joel 3:2;Amos 9:15) in the name of peace will result in America being divided by a great quake. Taken from Time to Focus! Mega-Quake Before the Rapture?

CONTINUE TO KEEP YOUR EYES ON ISRAEL AND THE PEACE PLAN talks as was reported—Trump Envoy to Visit Israel Next Week for Talks on Peace Plan and Trump Prepared to Pressure Netanyahu with Peace Plan!

Referring back to Todd’s video, starting around the 10:15 minute mark, Todd shares his insight related to 11/11=9/11 and how November comes from the Latin word novem meaning “9”!


Todd was also shown extensively the correlation of the March 11, 2011 Japanese tsunami with the Rapture (it is interesting that last year on November 4 he did a brief video entitled HOMECOMING! "Getting Ready for JESUS to Come!" 311-911 Watch until the End!).

I believe the Spirit of the Most High God is saying that on March 11, 2018, the anniversary of the 2011 Japanese tsunami, the prophetic waters of the world broke. This is a signal of the very, very soon travail coming upon the earth. Just as a woman’s labor typically begins soon after her waters break, so will The Tribulation begin soon! [Excerpt from END TIME BIRTH PAINS and PLANET X]

The Spirit of the Lord has not given me a great deal of revelation of upcoming catastrophes, but I know I am called to be one of His watchmen. And I too have received dreams of warning regarding coming tsunamis. . . [Taken from O Gathering! O Jubilee!]

Like our brother in Christ, I am not saying we know the exact day of our departure, Beloved of the Lord, I am just encouraging you to not give up! Father God has been so good to send us encouragement so that if we #hit the wall, we will push through continuing to endure! 

“God has to give us things to keep us going each and every day to believe that Jesus is coming and that this event of taking of those believing in Jesus Christ will happen!” IT IS FINISHED YT

Hitting the Wall

“Lord, I’m just so tired. I know many of my brethren feel the same way.” As I honestly went to Him this morning, the thought came to me that I/we had “hit the wall”. “In endurance sports such as cycling and running, hitting the wall or the bonk is a condition of sudden fatigue and loss of energy. . .”

The hardest mile in a marathon is the mile you hit “the wall”.

Life as a true follower of the Lord Jesus Christ is a marathon and a test of our endurance, so it should not come as a surprise to us if we experience the bonk.

As I was studying this, the question came to my mind, “I wonder if women “hit the wall” during childbirth?” I had not experienced it with my pregnancies but that didn’t mean it couldn’t happen to others. Sure enough, I found it!

Hitting the wall is the not-so-technical term for the moment when labor reaches a point of intensity that's totally overwhelming. It might be brief and mom rides the wave and gets past it, but it might also grab hold and not let up. [Excerpt from]

This analogy of The Tribulation and a woman in travail reveals more and more of what those of us who are watching for His return are experiencing in the way of sympathetic groans in anticipation of labor/travail beginning.

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time [are] not worthy [to be compared] with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. - Romans 8:17-19 KJV

And not only [they], but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, [to wit], the redemption of our body. - Romans 8:23 KJV

Let me encourage you, dear brothers and sisters if you have “hit the wall”. For as saints of the Most High God sealed with His Spirit, pushing through this phase of fatigue—enduring the trials of life—will result in eternal rewards!

Blessed [is] the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. - James 1:12 KJV

The King James Version of the Bible translates the Greek word peirasmos as “temptation”; however, looking at the Outline of Biblical Usage we see this word is referring to “an experiment, attempt, trial, proving”. The trials of this life do NOT compare to what He has in store for us! Just picturing in my mind the new eternal body I will be receiving—“redemption of our body”—as I fly up to meet my oh so precious Lord is enough to keep me going!

2018—Year of the Rapture!?!

The impression in my spirit when I heard the prophecy given by Ken Peters contained within the God’s Roadmap to the End video was one of great encouragement! I disagree with Ken’s interjected views on salvation; however, right after he makes his interjected remarks about how we’ve been sold a bill of goods related to “once saved always saved” it is as though the Holy Spirit corrected Ken. For after he makes his remarks and then goes back into reading the prophecy (at around the 23:15 minute mark) look what is said:

Do the things that make your Lord a Lord of pleasure for you—a Master who smiles when He looks upon you while you work. No, your work shall never ever obtain your salvation, but your earthly works will determine the pleasure of the King and where you are in the midst of His presence.

Later on in the prophecy he speaks of a tidal wave and says some will lose their first love. He is correct that a person can love Jesus and not be saved. You must confess Jesus Christ as your Lord and believe God raised him from the dead in order to be sealed with the Holy Spirit (Romans 10:9)! (See also Who are the Tribulation Saints?)

Despite Brother Ken Peter’s salvation views, I believe he received a true message from God. In this prophetic word, God encourages us to look for the eternal glory! Let me share some more excerpts from that rhema that stood out to me (some of which Jaco Prinsloo highlighted in his video also):

O GATHERING! O JUBILEE!” says the Lord.

You will see a sweeping across America in the next three years [2015-2018]. You will see great devastation upon your land . . .

But, My people, you are in a safe place. You’re in a very, very safe place with Me.

You must not fear what will happen to America.

My Father is preparing great crowns of rewards. And very, very soon I will be your soon-coming KING.

For you are called to be Overcomers. You have been destined by My Father to sit with the 24 elders and make great decisions and heavenly strategies in the new earth and heaven to come.

Do you not see that you are called to things beyond this limitation on earth? Come on, My people, you must see into a new dimension! You must look beyond your trials and your problems.

Great darkness has been sent upon your land. For those in high civil authorities have given this nation over to the ways of darkness.

But I the Lord will REDEEM MY PEOPLE. I did not come to redeem governments. . . I came to covenant with a people that are CALLED OUT. So be the CALLED-OUT ONES, says the Lord.

This is a holy day that you will never forget as time progresses. As time begins to come faster and faster YOU WILL LOOK BACK ON THIS DAY, THE 1ST OF NOVEMBER. You will look back even as the clocks were changed and TIME BEGAN ANEW and you will say, “That was the day of the HOLY CONVOCATION—the day the Lord set me aside and chose me for a special work.”

A great tide is coming—like a TIDAL WAVE that pulls people out to the sea. Some of My people will be pulled out to the sea and never return to the depth of their first love.

This land is being weighed in the balances. . . your prayers will dictate the next three years [2015-2018]


[I’m either the biggest false prophet that ever lived . . . to say that—the upheaval of all nations, all nations in three years. If you study end times prophecy you know exactly what that is pointing to—it has to be



My Thoughts

In the excerpts listed above, I added the years in brackets and words that I wished to emphasize I put in bold. It is easy to see the correlation between most of the emboldened words and the catching away of the Overcoming Church. Three times Ken Peters prophesies about the next three years—2015-2018—and that it relates to “the upheaval of all nations”.

Then the last section of words in brackets are Ken’s own thoughts where he admits that this must be referring to the return of Christ in 2018!


Near the beginning of the prophetic word, Jubilee is mentioned and then later “I will redeem My people”.

Redemption is another key component to the Jubilee as outlined in Leviticus Chapter 25:

In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession. - Leviticus 25:13 KJV
And in all the land of your possession ye shall grant a redemption for the land. - Leviticus 25:24 KJV

This redemption could not be done by just anybody—it had to be done by a kinsman (Leviticus 25:25). We see this in the story of Ruth when Naomi seeks to have Boaz marry her daughter-in-law. [Excerpt from 2017 Final Jubilee]

November 1—Holy Convocation

Ken Peters spoke this word to his church family on November 1, 2015. It was the day that the clocks went back to Standard Time. In the Spring, we “spring forward” an hour and in the Autumn, we “fall back” an hour. (This year the clocks “fall back” on November 4.) When thinking of this phrase I couldn’t help connect it to the "falling away" of 2 Thessalonians and that it relates to how #The Last Trump is also a military signal to call the troops to “fall back” or disengage the enemy and go home to rest.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; - 2 Thessalonians 2:3 KJV

When Brother Ken said, “. . . YOU WILL LOOK BACK ON THIS DAY, THE 1ST OF NOVEMBER. . . and you will say, “That was the day of the HOLY CONVOCATION”, immediately I thought of how the Rapture is referred to in the KJV as “our gathering together” which is translated from the Greek word episynagōgē  which is Strongs G1996 and means “a complete collection; especially a Christian meeting (for worship):—assembling (gathering) together”.

Will Brother Ken’s fellow parishioners always remember November 1, 2015, because of this prophetic word given or will November 1st always be remembered because it is when the Lord will gather us together in 2018 to always be with Him? I am not convinced that we will be shown the actual day of the Resurrection/Rapture of the Bride, but I will truly be perplexed if it does not occur this year.

Tidal Wave

The tidal wave section of this prophetic word through Ken Peters caught my attention because of the warning dreams I was given.

MANY others have announced similar warnings. Recently Watchman On The Wall 88 shared his tidal wave dreams (Another Massive Waves Dream) and also that Emmanuel Macron will set forth a Middle East peace deal if Trump does not follow through with his.

Just as all prophetic words given must be judged ALL dreams must be judged, but God DOES SPEAK THROUGH DREAMS to His people—especially WARNINGS. A Spirit-filled disciple of Christ who has a genuine calling as a watchman will be shown future danger so that a warning can go out and people are given a chance to repent! This ministry is in full swing in these last days!

And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: - Acts 2:17 KJV

The Spirit of the Lord has not given me a great deal of revelation of upcoming catastrophes, but I know I am called to be one of His watchmen. And I too have received dreams of warning regarding coming tsunamis:

. . . A prophetic word through Kevin Mirasi came the closest to what I received from the Lord. In the video Tsunami in USA, California Earthquake, Russian Attack and Rapture, he says that he doesn't know whether the rapture is immediately during the tsunami or shortly after. This matches what I reported:

Beloved, HEADS UP! The impression in my spirit is we might see Lk 21:25 (the sea roaring) b4 or at the same time we are raptured. IF it occurs I believe it will be a great wave caused by earthquake, asteroid, or nuclear detonation. I ask for forgiveness ahead of time if I am wrong. But would rather risk this than fail in my watch. I have been wrong b4 but at times I have been hearing right. Seek the Lord about this message, of course... [Excerpt from The Sea Roaring]

Day of Separation

There is a principle of separation in the Scriptures and the Rapture of the Overcoming Man Child is one of those separations that will occur. (See the ‘Principle of Separation’ section in  Saved From Wrath.)

Arise! Shine!

Near the end of the rhema, Ken quotes Isaiah 60:1 but ends it with “and the glory of the LORD will rise upon you”.

Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. - Isaiah 60:1 KJV

I had never thought of this section of Scripture as relating to the Rapture until I listened to Watchwoman YT Channel’s 8-28-18 video Why Darkness MUST Come Before the Rapture.

Her explanation of what God showed her parallels the conclusion I have come to—that the fall of Satan would be almost simultaneous with our rise to meet the Lord in the air! She also quotes all of Chapter 60 of Isaiah pointing out that “darkness” is mentioned within these verses.

This is the first of two related videos. Here is her synopsis of them posted with her second video:

This is the SECOND of two messages. The two darknesses come together at the Rapture of the Church. The Lord’s dark glory clouds restrain the evil darkness which comes after we go out. If you go back and listen to the first video, the message is consistent. I said rolling dark clouds bringing in (a second) darkness. The first darkness which we WILL SEE is DARK clouds hiding the Lord’s Glory. The second the EVIL darkness that comes after we leave. The Lord RESTRAINS the evil darkness until his children are taken out of harm’s way. Exodus (Rapture) then Evil Darkness: Reversal of Exodus Plagues: Vision, Word, Scriptural Revelation
Watchwoman also parallels today’s events with Jeremiah 13:15-21 as Sean Osbourne did in his recent post:

Within Jeremiah's prophetic word from God there is very strong evidence that a generation is 70 years. . . Israel has just completed the 70th year since its modern-day return from exile. The LORD will move swiftly now with His plan for the redemption of all Israel. [Comment by Sean Osbourne re. his October 16, 2018 article at]

As Sandy Armstrong said, “It will never be the end of the 120th Jubilee again! It will never be the 70th Birthday of Israel again!” and “Nothing happened at 80 years in the Bible. It was always at 70.” (He was, of course, referring to Psalm 90:10.)

Referring back to my original analogy of marathons—I know this article has gotten too long! So much is happening it is difficult to condense it all!


The ribbon of the finish line is in sight!

. . . The hardest mile in a marathon will depend on many things including your training, your pace, the course, and many other variables. Despite that, the hardest mile in a marathon is worth enjoying and remembering forever since it will be totally worth it.

P.S. Please refer to Gary's informative article at for an update related to The Middle East Peace Plan. And in the Comments Section, Gary added this link: US to reveal ‘Deal of the Century’ to Israel next week.

Is the Rapture Earned?

More on Michael and the Man Child

So many of us have expressed how very ready we are for our Lord to snatch us away! This too is analogous to pregnancy as many know by experience. Those who have carried a child to full term just want that baby to be born! But do we realize what that means in terms of Eternity? Are we a Bride that is in love with the idea of her extravagant wedding day or in love with her Bridegroom? More on that later.

God has been so gracious to warn the world and to show indicators to those of us who are looking for His Son’s appearing. The timing and naming of Hurricane Michael is no coincidence. In fact, HOW Michael came in so quickly and powerfully stunned many. This is how the enemy will feel on that Day when the mighty Archangel swoops in with the heavenly host and cleanses the Second Heaven of the Prince of the Power of the Air and his fallen ones.

It is also how those in the world will feel:

Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. - Luke 21:26 KJV

As I’ve shared before this spiritual activity will manifest in the physical with the appearance of demonic ‘alien’ aircraft in our skies (see Be Expectant). Then, almost simultaneously, will come the Resurrection/Rapture of the Overcoming Church. These spiritual events may cause an EMP-like effect on the world’s electrical grid and the earth will go dark.  I do not know if this will be the cause for certain, but I do believe electricity will be unavailable for a duration of time whatever the cause—the rapture, nuclear war, or cosmic events.

The effects of Hurricane Michael signals this coming darkness for as ABC News reported Hurricane Michael leaves more than 1 million without power—WITHOUT POWER so in the DARK! Also notice that on the screen behind the ABC reporter in this video reads, “Hurricane War Zone”.

The Big Squeeze & Time of Great Trouble

Another prophetic news video was issued by CBS on October 2, 2018--Americans to receive cellphone alert from president in 1st national test—wherein it was reported that this alert system “will let any President issue a warning about a crisis. That could include a missile launched by another country at the U.S. or a tsunami.”

This know also, that in the last days perilous [fierce] times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy. . .

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. - 2 Timothy 3:1-2, 5 KJV

Though the corporate birth or Rapture of the Overcoming Church occurs before The Tribulation—before travail or labor begins—we are prophetically experiencing “the big squeeze” much like a baby’s head experiences as the uterus contracts and pushes the baby down the birth canal.

How much trouble we will see prior to Daniel’s 70th Week, no one knows except as the Holy Spirit reveals to us. As a woman of God who happens to live in America, I have been called to be a watchman and to sound any warnings He shows me.

This calling manifested back in the 90’s when my family and I lived in the heart of Shenandoah Valley. The Lord poured into me an intercessory burden for our nation. He did not show me specifics, but I wept and prayed for I knew in my heart a time of great trouble was to rock this land.

Just before leaving that basket of mountains in Virginia, the Spirit of the Lord moved on me to speak to a group of brethren. At first I fought Him for I had already prophesied earlier during the church meeting, but the pastor plunked himself down on a chair near me and announced to the congregation, “I’m not going to speak anymore today. God told me to sit down and be quiet.”

This was my cue, so I stood up and with my body trembling all over due to the Spirit infilling me I prophesied, “A time of great trouble is coming and if you are not close with the Lord you're not going to make it.” The urgency of the Lord pressed on me and I spoke the message a second time adding at the end, “Do not forget this day!”

We moved to a city further south and about eight years later we were led to move yet again. Just before we did, though, the Spirit of the Lord had me speak the same prophecy to that congregation. This time I took up a shekere (a shell-covered gourd instrument) and shook it violently as I announced, “A time of great trouble is coming! Everything that can be shaken will be shaken! Come to Him in your prayer closets faithfully and do not be afraid.”

Israel Agrees to Dividing Jerusalem?

Today I came across a video wherein a sister in Christ shared articles from The Jerusalem Post one of which claims that Israel not only has agreed to a two-state solution, but also to dividing Jerusalem—the apple of God’s eye (Zechariah 2:8)! IF THIS IS TRUE, the peace agreement could be announced ANY DAY NOW!

“Why did you not make this the title of your article?” you may very well shout.

The very nearness of our Lord’s appearing plus warnings not just to the unsaved but to the brethren leads me to ask—"Are you and I truly Rapture ready?”

Rapture—Reward or by Grace?

THERE HAS BEEN MUCH DEBATE as to whether “once saved always saved” is true or not. Right up front I want to tell you that I am in the camp that believes once a person has confessed and believed Romans 10:9 from their heart, they are saved and sealed with the Holy Spirit until the day of redemption (also see Who are the Tribulation Saints? ). But is salvation the only qualification for being worthy to escape The Tribulation?

Some teach, such as Perry Stone (Accounted Worthy to Escape by Perry Stone), that the Rapture is a reward only for those who are faithful. Sandy Armstrong has shared that he does not believe "once saved always saved". Jaco Prinsloo posted a riveting video on October 12 that included Ken Peters’ 2015 prophecy part of which Ken mentions he does not believe “once saved always saved”.  I was both blessed with tears of joy at parts of Ken Peters’ prophetic word AND spurred on to understand whether the Rapture was a reward or given to us as an act of grace.

I believe it comes down to one verse:

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. - 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 KJV

Paul writes that those who are “in Christ” will be caught up or raptured. Is being “in Christ” something we earned or was it given to us by grace?

The answer can be found in Romans Chapter 8:

And if Christ [be] in you, the body [is] dead because of sin; but the Spirit [is] life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. - Romans 8:10-11 KJV

It is the Spirit of God within that seals and quickens us the day Jesus comes for His Bride.

Therefore, those who are born again of incorruptible seed are “in Christ”. It is by faith by an act of grace (Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8), not by works. The rapture is NOT an earned reward; it is given to us by grace. We are not worthy to escape by our works, but we are made worthy “in Christ” (again I refer you to Who are the Tribulation Saints? ).

What About the 10 Virgins Parable?

I agree with those who point to the fact that Jesus was addressing Israel when He spoke of the 10 virgins in Matthew Chapter 25.

First, let’s keep in mind that the Holy Spirit could only be upon God’s people before the Acts 2 day of Pentecost. Some teach this segment of Scripture and say that the foolish virgins did have some oil in their lamps to begin with. I am not going to argue one way or the other on this, but if they did have some oil, could this represent the Spirit upon them? Then the wise virgins who, according to these teachers, took extra oil would represent those of Israel who went on to accept Christ as their Lord and were filled with the Holy Spirit.

The foolish virgins outwardly looked righteous—they did bring their lamps after all. This is comparable to those today, whether Jew or Gentile, who attend church services but have never made Christ the Lord of their life!  Only those who are filled with the Holy Spirit will be able to go with the Bridegroom.

ALL WORKS are Judged

Even though I do believe “once saved always saved”, I am not going to be critical of the brethren who are warning born again Christians who are not living a holy lifestyle. Most of us forget that this life reflects on us in eternity! OUR SALVATION WILL NOT BE JUDGED, BUT OUR WORKS WILL BE JUDGED.

We ALL appear before Him at one point or another:

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things [done] in [his] body, according to that he hath done, whether [it be] good or bad. . .

For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And [that] he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. . .

Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech [you] by us: we pray [you] in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. - 2 Corinthians 5:10, 14, 15, 20 KJV

To better understand this, I went to a Commentary by A. R. FAUSSET:

receive--His reward of grace proportioned to "the things done," &c. ( 2Cr 9:6-92Jo 1:8 ). Though salvation be of grace purely, independent of works, the saved may have a greater or less reward, according as he lives to, and labors for, Christ more or less. Hence there is scope for the holy "ambition" (see on JF & B for 2Co 5:9Hbr 6:10 ). . . There shall be a searching judgment which shall sever the bad from the good, according to their respective, deeds, the motive of the deeds being taken into account. . .

be ye reconciled to God--English Version here inserts "ye," which is not in the original, and which gives the wrong impression, as if it were emphatic. . .let this reconciliation then have its designed effect. Be reconciled to God, that is, let God reconcile you to Himself2Cr 5:18, 19 ).
[Excerpts from  blb]

We see this separation of what we have done whether good or bad in 1 Corinthians:

For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.
If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. 1 Corinthians 3:11-15 KJV

It is a person’s works that pass through the fire—not the person themselves. If the works are not of the Holy Spirit, they burn; but the person does not pass through fire:

As a builder whose building, not the foundation, is consumed by fire, escapes, but with the loss of his work [ALFORD] [Excerpt from blb commentary]

The motives of a person, even with the Holy Spirit residing within them, will be a determining factor regarding rewards but not their salvation.

“Not everyone who says Lord, Lord”

What about Matthew 7:21-23?

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. - Matthew 7:21-23 KJV

There will be those who say they did wonderful works in His name. It is possible to perform miracles by your own faith and not through faith in Jesus Christ--Chris Blackeby does an excellent teaching on this.

John Fenn relates that when Jesus replies, “I never knew you”, it means He NEVER knew them [I would add He never knew them experientially or intimately in any relationship]. They were NEVER born again.

I humbly submit this study and welcome any Scriptural correction. My goal was to bless those of you who are earnestly longing for His appearing and awaken those who have not made Christ the Lord of their lives; but ultimately my desire in writing this was to please My God and King!

Even so, come Christ Jesus, come!

2/24/20 NOTE:

Just read an informative article by Gary of related to the subject of the Parable of the Ten Virgins. Here's an excerpt for your consideration:

While the question of what the oil in the parable represents is certainly meaningful, it may be a less practical pursuit then who the virgins are.  What we immediately find in Psalm 45 is that the bride and her virgin companions are separate entities.  The bride has already met the bridegroom before her companions do.  This would add weight to the position of the late Jack Kelley, who makes a clear case that the virgins have nothing to do with the rapture and everything to do with the Second Advent—those tasked with being faithful as they await Christ's physical return to earth.

Birthing of the Millennial Kingdom

After posting the Be Expectant article at the end of September, I realized that I had forgotten to include what I believe is a very pertinent fact. We are entering the Hebrew year 5779.

The number nine is a most remarkable number in many respects. . . It is the last of the digits, and thus marks the end; and is significant of the conclusion of a matter.

I can only begin to explain the significance of the year 5779! Especially the number “9”! Not only does the number 9 in Scripture connote many things including ‘completeness’, but the ninth letter in the Hebrew alphabet is tet. Patricia King shared a prophetic word for the year 5779 and gives a wonderful explanation of the significance of tet.

“The form of the letter is ‘inverted’ suggesting hidden goodness like that of a woman who is pregnant with child.” [Source:] A woman is pregnant for nine months and then something good happens--a baby is born. Scott Clarke has explained how the Rapture is the birth of the Overcoming Church giving those who love Christ’s Appearing much to anticipate in 5779!


A woman who is expecting the birth of her child makes preparation. I think it is interesting that the President declared this past September to be a month of preparation.

Not only that but lately I have had an unexpected urge to do deep cleaning in our home. As I was washing curtains and windows, it came into my spirit that I was “nesting”. Nesting is the term used when a pregnant woman springs into action cleaning and setting up the baby’s room in anticipation of the birth! (I have lo-o-ong passed my childbearing years, so it is not natural for me to have this urge!)

The nesting instinct is strongest in the later weeks coming up on delivery. It is an old wives’ tale that once nesting urges begin, labor is about to come on.

It may be an old wives’ tale, but prophetically this CAUGHT MY ATTENTION!

In the Comments Section of my Be Not Terrified!  article, Ozark asked a thought-provoking question:

Another informative post Lyn. A thought came to me as I was reading the part about the possible quake happening but not to fret because its not yet the tribulation!,.....Well for the 1st time ever I said to myself, ''humm, I wonder if the HARD LABOR equates to the 3.5 year "GREAT' TRIBULATION" {Time of GREAT DISTRESS} portion of the 7 year Tribulation which begins in the - middle - of the 7 yrs. at the time of the AoD. Have you ever considered that as a possibility? Grace n Peace Always / Shalom

I then answered:

Ozark, thanks for your comment . . . It is interesting that the First Stage of the Three Stages of Labor is the longest and that its last phase is the "Transition Phase". This is when labor intensifies markedly as the cervix dilates from 7 cm to 10 cm. It is the hardest phase but also the shortest! It could very well be compared to the Abomination of Desolation event that introduces the last half of The Tribulation, called in the Scriptures, The Great Tribulation period!

The Second and Third Stage of Labor is shorter than the First Stage which would match Matthew 24:22:
And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

This led me to want to look deeper into the comparison of travail or labor with Daniel’s 70th Week.


A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. John 16:21 KJV

When does “The Travail” or “The Tribulation” begin?

I believe it begins simultaneously with the “sudden destruction” of 1 Thessalonians 5:3 which the world may see play out by way of a nuclear attack and natural disasters in America before the Ezekiel 38 war against Israel (see the ‘Sea and Waves Roaring’ section of Be Expectant). This will be very troubling to Israel for the United States is her most powerful ally.

Scott Clark places 1 Thessalonians 5:3’s “sudden destruction” in the middle of the seven-year period; however, I believe, when studying the context of this verse, it marks the beginning of wrath and of Daniel’s 70th Week. My understanding could be incorrect, of course, so I am willing to change my thinking; but is it possible the Scriptures indicate that America is destroyed somehow (perhaps by a combination of natural catastrophes and nuclear war first thereby affecting the world’s economy), then the Antichrist or Beast (Revelation 13:1-5) comes on the scene to “rescue” the world and calm Israel’s fears by allowing her to build the Third Temple when he “confirms the covenant” of Daniel 9:27?

THE WORLD will be in BIG trouble—travail—tribulation—when the Antichrist/Beast comes to power; therefore, to me The Tribulation IS Daniel’s 70th Week with the second half of the seven-year period being The Great Tribulation as described by Jesus in Matthew 24:15-21.

Scripture says creation is already having sympathy birth pains:

For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth (synōdinō) in pain together until now. And not only [they], but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, [to wit], the redemption of our body. - Romans 8:22-23 KJV

 Travaileth” is translated from the Greek word synōdinō, which Strong’s defines as “sympathy” pains: “(figuratively) to sympathize (in expectation of relief from suffering):—travail in pain together”.

In comparison, look at 1 Thessalonians 5:3:

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail (ōdin) upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. - 1 Thessalonians 5:3 KJV

Odin, on the other hand, refers to actual labor and according to Strong’s means “a pang or throe, especially of childbirth:—pain, sorrow, travail”.

Second and Third Stage

As mentioned above, the First Stage of labor is the longest part of active labor. Then after the Transition Phase, the laboring mother enters into Second Stage labor where she feels the need to push resulting in the birth of the baby. This can be compared prophetically to the second half of Daniel’s 70th Week for it will be a tremendous push for humankind to make it through the terrors of this stage of The Tribulation which Jesus called “great tribulation”:

For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. Matthew 24:21 KJV

The Second and Third Stages are shorter than the First which would match Matthew 24:22.

Third Stage is expelling the placenta. This gives us a picture of cleansing bleeding—an appropriate parallel to the Battle of Armageddon when the armies of heaven join their Mighty KING of Kings to cleanse the earth of God’s enemies in a bloody battle (Revelation 19:11-18).

One Year Warning

Jaco Prinsloo of God's Roadmap to the End agrees that the “sudden destruction” of 1 Thessalonians 5:3 could follow President Trump’s Deal of the Century (the name of his Middle East peace plan) which he hopes to announce within two to four months. I was very much encouraged by Jaco’s video The RAPTURE: Our Blessed Hope, the Deal of the Century and the Calm Before the Storm.

In it he again quotes Genesis 17:21 and 18:10 regarding the Jacob/Israel covenant and Isaac’s birth “the next year”. It floored me when I heard Jaco first share this in one of his previous videos for I too had referred to this section of Scripture in The Heavenly Signs of 2018 article. He believes the one-year period applies prophetically to the Rapture “birth” event seen in Revelation 12:5. Why then did nothing happen on September 23, 2018—one year after we witnessed the Sign of the Woman? Jaco explains the 40 days waiting period required after the birth of a male child before that child can be presented to God!

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

If Trump presents his peace plan sooner than later, we may see the “sudden destruction” of 1 Thessalonians 5:3 resulting in our escape just as the 40 days waiting period ends!!

Continuing in 1 Thessalonians Chapter 5—

But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as [do] others; but let us watch and be sober. - 1 Thessalonians 5:4-6 KJV

For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, - 1 Thessalonians 5:9 KJV

Do you see it? Paul connects “sudden destruction” with “wrath”. “They shall not escape” but we are able to escape because “God hath not appointed us to wrath”! HALLELU-YAH! [Excerpt from By the Skin of Our Teeth]

Also, while Gary of Unsealed has discovered the foreshadowing celestial event of Revelation 12:4; Jaco, it would seem, has found how that event may very soon play out!

Michael on his way?

As soon as I saw that a storm was forming near the Gulf of Mexico and that it would be named Michael, I said within myself, “Is Michael on his way?” Michael the Archangel, that is.

And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation [even] to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. - Daniel 12:1 KJV

As I have shared before, it is possible that Michael and his army cast Satan and his fallen ones out of heaven at the same time the dead- and living-in-Christ are Resurrected/Raptured and that The Tribulation or Daniel’s 70th Week begins at that time.

The events of Revelation Chapter 12 are both physical AND spiritual wherein Satan and his evil horde of angels will be cast out of the second heaven (where he has ruled as “prince of the power of the air”) and battle the Archangel Michael and the heavenly host:

And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. - Revelation 12:7-9 KJV
[Excerpt from Time to Save With Fear]

So then the overcoming man child of Revelation 12:5 will be birthed into eternity before The Tribulation in duo-fulfillment of Isaiah 66:7. In Alan Horvath’s two videos: The Most Comprehensive Rapture Update and Kar Giver's Bonus Rapture Update 2017, he and Kar Giver explain how Scripture prophesies of TWO CORPORATE BIRTHS.

But who or what is born after seven years of travail—after Jacob’s Trouble? Why, The Millennial Kingdom of our Lord and God, of course! Oh! What a day that will be!!

After posting this article, I came across a video by Youtuber Many Fish where he too has the same thought come into his spirit regarding Michael--and then some! 13 Hurricane Michael! The Rebellion is Here! Michael Stands Up!
