Much to the surprise of many believers who HEAP UP TEACHERS UNTO THEMSELVES instead of searching sacred Scripture, there will be sinners who survive THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION when Christ wins the battle of Armageddon, burns the evil works of mankind with fire, and kills the wicked immediately before setting up his glorious thousand year global reign in Jerusalem. The Lord is greatly tempted in that hour to cleanse the earth altogether of every sinner but he restrains himself. (2Timothy 4:3)(St. Matthew 24:22/24)(Revelation 3:10)(2 Peter 3:10) Psalm 145:20)
Who are we to know the reasoning of God in such matters, but some of his purpose is clear. Those sinners who survive will repopulate the earth. They will also become missionary targets for the resurrected in the great worldwide spiritual awakening that will begin early in the thousand year reign and retain its momentum throughout the Millenium Age. There will be insufficient numbers of resurrected believers to populate the earth to the satisfaction of the Lord and the resurrected will need the greater purpose of soulwinning to build themselves into new creatures in Christ, something most of them neglected to do in this lifetime.
Isaiah the Prophet writes: "THERE SHALL BE NO MORE THENCE AN INFANT OF DAYS, NOR AN OLD MAN THAT HAS NOT FILLED HIS DAYS: FOR THE CHILD SHALL DIE AN HUNDRED YEARS OLD; BUT THE SINNER BEING AN HUNDRED YEARS OLD SHALL BE ACCURSED."* Isaiah 65:20
In this present Age our children remain a helpless infant for a couple of months before they begin crawling. In the Millenium Age, there will be no more AN INFANT OF DAYS. The child shall remain a child until they are a hundred years old.
In this present Age we have become accustomed to a lifespan of seventy to eighty years and do not realize OLD MEN HAVE NOT FILLED THEIR DAYS.
In the thousand year reign, OLD MEN SHALL FILL THEIR DAYS. They shall live to a ripe old age as it was in the beginning when men lived to be seven and eight hundred years old. By this means, the Lord will use surviving sinners to repopulate the earth. For they will have a much longer span of child bearing and will bear many more children than men in this Age give seed to, and their children will do the same once they come of age. They will bear many children and their children will bear many children. So the earth will quickly become repopulated.
It is the custom of the prophets to give bits and pieces of prophecy rather than the big picture all at once. Isaiah the Prophet wrote in another place: "A LITTLE ONE SHALL BECOME A THOUSAND, AND A SMALL ONE A STRONG NATION: I THE LORD WILL HASTEN IT IN HIS TIME." (Isaiah 60:22)
Now, let us examine several other prophecies in regard to surviving sinners, keeping in mind they too will be on this planet when EVERY EYE WILL SEE THE LORD COMING IN THE CLOUDS OF GLORY and they too find themselves inhabiting a world destroyed by the fire of God's wrath in Christ. The wicked in their communities and in their cities shall lie about as dead corpses when the smoke clears. Antichrist shall be dead and will no longer rule over the earth in anger.
"Therefore has the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell threin are desolate: Therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, AND FEW MEN LEFT." (Isaiah 24:6) Few men will remain alive from billions who inhabit the earth. If a thousand million make up a billion, then fifty to a hundred million survivors might expect to survive the supernatural hour in which the Lord kills the wicked throughout the earth to purge it of their evil ways. "THE LORD PRESERVES ALL THEM THAT LOVE HIM: BUT ALL THE WICKED WILL HE DESTROY." (Psalm 146:20)
Scatterings of Gentile sinners will survive here and there in the ruins of burned down civilizations. They will retain their lifespan but children born of them will fill their days to six, seven and eight hundred years of age. The Lord knows the survivors are sinners and will not require regular worship of them as Antichrist did, but as the ruler of all the earth he will be moderate in requiring them to make a pilgrimage once a year to Jerusalem to worship him and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
"And it shall come to pass, that EVERY ONE THAT IS LEFT OF ALL THE NATIONS which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles." Zechariah 14:16
The Jewish Apostles were discussing what to do regarding the door of salvation God suddenly opened for the Gentile nations to be saved. Saint James said to them: "SIMEON HAS DECLARED HOW GOD AT THE FIRST DID VISIT THE GENTILES, TO TAKE OUT OF THEM A PEOPLE FOR HIS NAME. AND TO THIS AGREE THE WORDS OF THE PROPHETS; AS IT IS WRITTEN,..." and Saint James proceeded to paraphrase prophetically what Amos the Prophet wrote in chapter 9, verses ll and 12 of his prophecies:
"AFTER THIS I WILL RETURN, AND WILL BUILD AGAIN THE TABERNACLE OF DAVID, WHICH IS FALLEN DOWN; AND I WILL BUILD AGAIN THE RUINS THEREOF, AND I WILL SET IT UP: THAT THE RESIDUE OF MEN MIGHT SEEK AFTER THE LORD, AND ALL THE GENTILES, UPON WHOM MY NAME IS CALLED, SAITH THE LORD, WHO DOES ALL THESE THINGS. KNOWN UNTO GOD ARE ALL HIS WORKS FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD." Acts 15:14/18
"THE RESIDUE OF MEN" specifically points to surviving sinners from the Age we are presently in, having a place where they can go to seek the LORD in Jerusalem. THE TABERNACLE OF DAVID which is to be rebuilt early in the thousand reign of Christ ought not to be confused with the temple of God which also will be rebuilt, and in it the Lord will reside along with the Apostles in its many mansions. Each of those buildings will have their own specific uses.
At the end of THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION, the Lord's army of angels "SHALL RUN LIKE MIGHTY MEN; THEY SHALL CLIMB THE WALL LIKE MEN OF WAR; AND THEY SHALL MARCH EVERY ONE ON HIS WAYS, AND THEY SHALL NOT BREAK THEIR RANKS: NEITHER SHALL ONE THRUST ANOTHER; THEY SHALL WALK EVERY ONE IN HIS PATH: AND WHEN THEY FALL UPON THE SWORD, THEY SHALL NOT BE WOUNDED." THEY SHALL RUN TO AND FRO IN THE CITY; THEY SHALL RUN UPON THE WALL, THEY SHALL CLIMB UP UPON THE HOUSES; THEY SHALL ENTER IN AT THE WINDOWS LIKE A THIEF. THE EARTH SHALL QUAKE BEFORE THEM; THE HEAVENS SHALL TREMBLE: THE SUN AND THE MOON SHALL BE DARK, AND THE STARS SHALL WITHDRAW THEIR SHINING. AND THE LORD SHALL UTTER HIS VOICE BEFORE HIS ARMY FOR HIS CAMP IS VERY GREAT: FOR HE IS STRONG THAT EXECUTES HIS WORD: FOR THE DAY OF THE LORD IS GREAT AND VERY TERRIBLE; AND WHO CAN ABIDE IT?" (The sinful Jews in Jerusalem shall be left alive and will flee to the mountains when the Lord sets his feet on the Mount of Olives, splitting it with a roaring earthquake; but all other sinners living in Jerusalem will be slain. The Lord will cure the Middle East of its OLD HATRED. He will purge the city of the perpetuators. The Middle East shall no longer be a war zone of extremist hostilities.)
The Jews of the latter half of the seven year Tribulation who remain alive in Jerusalem will be a poor and afflicted people. If they were once prosperous and healthy, that will be taken away from them at the fall of Jerusalem when Russia comes down from the North with their allies to take a spoil of the land of the Israel. It is those Jewish folk we are speaking of who a little more than three and a half years later find themselves delivered when they think themselves dead men at the glorious return of Jesus Christ in the wrath of God. But the Lord has a surprise for them.
The Prophet Zepaniah writes the Word of the LORD to the Israeli people: "I WILL ALSO LEAVE IN THE MIDST OF THEE AN AFFLICTED AND POOR PEOPLE, and they shall trust in the name of the LORD." (ZEPANIAH 3:12) Those Israelites who are terrorized by the coming of the Lord and his army to cleanse the world of the wicked (Psalm 145:20) and Jerusalem of sinners (Isaiah 13:9) will be led back in peace to serve their Deliverer whom they were taught to believe was a fraud to be used as a money making tourist attraction. They too were sinners but unlike Gentile sinners who survive in the world, a hundred percent of them shall come to trust "in the name of the Lord" early in the thousand year reign.
The final Exodus of Jewish people from all over the world to their homeland of Israel involves other Jewish sinners who also did not receive Christ as their Saviour for the belief he was idolized by the Gentiles of the world as another god, yet they all are convinced Christ is God when he returns in supernatural power to conquer the earth and sets up a sign they can see throughout the earth with such wonders as to make it possible for them to quickly return to the land of their forefathers. This they do and immediately are brought into the divine atmosphere produced by the Lord's Presence and all the greats of Israel to where it will be made possible for them to believe in faith and to obey in the Lord's Light. Their transformation will take place BY THE SPIRIT OF JUDGMENT and THE SPIRIT OF BURNING that takes place immediately at THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST. You will have to use your imagination of what that might be like for them.
But, if you think those Jewish sinners will take advantage of their wonderful inheritance, listen carefully to Zephaniah the Prophet who wrote: "THE REMNANT OF ISRAEL SHALL NOT DO INIQUITY, NOR SPEAK LIES NEITHER SHALL A DECEITFUL TONGUE BE FOUND IN THEIR MOUTH: FOR THEY SHALL FEED AND LIE DOWN, AND NONE SHALL MAKE THEM AFRAID." (3:13)
"AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS THAT HE THAT IS LEFT IN ZION AND HE THAT REMAINS IN JERUSALEM, SHALL BE CALLED HOLY, EVEN EVERY ONE THAT IS WRITTEN AMONG THE LIVING IN JERUSALEM: WHEN THE LORD SHALL HAVE WASHED AWAY THE FILTH OF THE DAUGHTERS OF ZION, AND SHALL HAVE PURGED THE BLOOD OF JERUSALEM FROM THE MIDST THEREOF BY THE SPIRIT OF JUDGMENT, AND BY THE SPIRIT OF BURNING." (Isaiah 4:3/4)
"AGAIN THE WORD OF THE LORD OF HOSTS CAME TO ME, SAYING, THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS; I WAS JEALOUS FOR ZION WITH GREAT JEALOUSY, AND I WAS JEALOUS FOR HER WITH GREAT FURY. THUS SAITH THE LORD; I AM RETURNED UNTO ZION, AND WILL DWELL IN THE MIDST OF JERUSALEM: AND JERUSALEM SHALL BE CALLED A CITY OF TRUTH; AND THE MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD OF HOSTS THE HOLY MOUNTAIN. THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS; THERE SHALL YET OLD MEN AND OLD WOMEN DWELL IN THE STREETS OF JERUSALEM, AND EVERY MAN WITH HIS STAFF IN HIS HAND FOR VERY AGE. AND THE STREETS OF THE CITY SHALL BE FULL OF BOYS AND GIRLS PLAYING IN THE STREETS THEREOF. THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS; IF IT BE MARVELOUS IN THE EYES OF THE REMNANT OF THIS PEOPLE IN THESE DAYS, SHOULD IT ALSO BE MARVELOUS IN MINE EYES? SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS. THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS; BEHOLD, I WILL SAVE MY PEOPLE FROM THE EAST COUNTRY, AND FROM THE WEST COUNTRY; AND I WILL BRING THEM, AND THEY SHALL DWELL IN THE MIDST OF JERUSALEM: AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE, AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, IN TRUTH AND IN RIGHTEOUSNESS." Zechariah 8:1/8
Joel the Prophet writes: "AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS, THAT WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE DELIVERED: FOR IN MOUNT ZION AND IN JERUSALEM SHALL BE DELIVERANCE, AS THE LORD HAS SAID, AND IN THE REMNANT WHOM THE LORD SHALL CALL." (Joel 2:32) Once the Jewish people are brought into a right spiritual mind in Israel, they will all repent of their sinfulness and will CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD whose name is kept secret from all the earth. (Ezekiel 39:7)
Then those Exodus Jews who rejected Christ in this Age were sent early in the thousand reign of Christ as missionaries to DECLARE HIS GLORY AMONG THE GENTILES. The Lord says: "I WILL SEND THOSE THAT ESCAPE OF THEM UNTO THE NATIONS, TO TARSHISH, PUL, AND LUD, THAT DRAW THE BOW, TO TUBAL AND JAVAN TO THE ISLES AFAR OFF, THAT HAVE NOT HEARD MY FAME, NEITHER HAVE SEEN MY GLORY; AND THEY SHALL DECLARE MY GLORY AMONG THE GENTILES." Isaiah 66:19 Those nations and islands to whom the gospel of Jesus Christ was not preached freely can expect to hear those newly saved Jews DECLARE HIS GLORY among them.
"IT IS NOT THE LORD'S WILL THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH."
Now, for the prophecy of the ten rulers of the world empire who shared power with Antichrist one hour who were captured at the conclusion of the battle of Armageddon where the Lord promised through his prophets they would be "UTTERLY DESTROYED...." (Isaiah 34:2)
Those wicked men are obviously unsaved at the second coming of Christ. Antichrist and the false prophet were killed and thrown alive into the lake of fire the Lord creates upon the surface of the earth at his second coming. Antichrist and the false prophet are trophies of his great victory, and the ten kings are living trophies as well as further proof of the Lord's right to govern the earth. They will remain alive a season (90 days) and a time (one year). Then they shall be UTTERLY DESTROYED, a prophecy guaranteeing they would not only be killed but cast into hell where souls are UTTERLY DESTROYED.
"AS CONCERNING THE REST OF THE BEASTS, THEY HAD THEIR DOMINION TAKEN AWAY: YET THEIR LIVES WERE PROLONGED FOR A SEASON AND TIME." (Daniel 7:12)
Since they all die after fifteen months into the thousand year reign, it is certain they will be executed together. When they are executed, it will by the cruel and unusual punishment of execution by a ROD OF IRON smashing them to death. A method you can be sure dear believer will put a healthy fear of God in those who witness the executions. Would to God America had been as wise as the Lord Jesus Christ shall prove to be in the thousand year reign when he ends all wars, destroys all of the evils of technology, and brings a spiritual awakening to all the nations of resurrected peoples.
"EVEN SO, COME QUICKLY LORD JESUS." Amen.
Many have complained to me through the decades of ministry that they could not believe there was salvation outside of Jesus Christ. They are correct. There is no salvation outside of Jesus Christ and his blood sacrifice. Ask yourself who was it who made the sacrifice. The answer is: Jesus Christ. Was he God or man? He was both God and man, but for the purpose of making it clear that he makes the rules and sets the policies, we will need to focus on the fact he is God. Once you get that fact settled, it doesn't matter what you believe contrary to the written Bible contract between God and man. If you have not diligently studied the complex Bible contract, why should you insist it is not possible for the God of impossibilities to gather his people from all over the world and do a marvelous work with them immediately after his second coming?
To sum it up. Jesus Christ is God. If you really see him as he is, you have also seen the Father. Christ is Jewish. The Lord will do what he has promised in the prophecies and no man can add to or take away one word of it. Holy Scripture is loaded with promises of salvation to all of Israel and even in the New Testament we are told, ALL ISRAEL WILL BE SAVED.
Many teach from parables such as those who let the oil run out in their lamps, that once the door to the catching up in the Resurrection is closed; those who neglect the oil of the Spirit in their lamps would be left behind which is true, but it is wrong to say the door to salvation slams shut on all. Those instructors neglected the unsaved survivors and Jewish people throughout the world who will be called back to Israel in THE FINAL EXODUS. Were they aware of the significance of those prophecies, they would have taught the exception to the rule you see here in this document. document. It is commonly taught that the threat of hellfire and damnation that is shown in prophecy for those who take the mark of the beast proves their point, but the Lord knows the hearts of men; how many were forced against their will to take the mark by a violent and oppressive Satanically driven world government, and the Lord also knows how locked out the Jewish people are culturally to salvation by Christ. For they see him as another god and are taught in the commandments to have NO OTHER GODS BEFORE THEM.
Those believers who object to all Israel being saved are reminiscent of the laborers who labored all day in the heat of the sun and received no more pay from the Lord than those who came at the last minute. What did he say in that parable? "FRIEND, I DO YOU NO WRONG: DID YOU NOT AGREE WITH ME FOR A PENNY (A DAY'S WAGE)? TAKE WHAT IS YOURS, AND GO YOUR WAY: I WILL GIVE UNTO THIS LAST, EVEN AS UNTO YOU. IS IT NOT LAWFUL FOR ME TO DO WHAT I WILL WITH MY OWN? IS YOUR EYE EVIL, BECAUSE I AM GOOD?" (Saint Matthew 20:13/15)
The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is doing an incredible work with Israeli's all over the world, although it obviously is not yet apparent to the human eye. Be patient dear believer. WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING. The Lord will do what he plans to do and no man can add to it or take away from it. God is the alfa and the omega, the beginning and the end.
