To All Trend and Date Setters!;
This will be the Most difficult article I have Ever had to write, but I am doing it for the Sake of the Pain that it can Cause Many.
First of all, I would like to give you an example of what I went through in my life. I knew for sure that Jesus was coming back in a certain year in the 80's. I had been Saved for many years, was a bible college graduate and had gained many degrees in different things of the Bible, as I had just a desire to study that was unquenchable. I just shredded all my degrees, for they are just pieces of paper and God is No Respecter of persons.
When this year came and passed, I was in Total Desperation! I called out to God, "How could I have missed the Timing of the Rapture, God? Are You still my God? Did I Ever Really Know You and If so, how could I have been So Wrong?" This was one of the Greatest Times of Dispair and Dismay in my Whole Entire Life. Had it Not been for God, I would of been Shipwrecked in the Faith. I Thank God that He Answered and Continued with me, out of the circumstances I had put in my life. I also praised God that I did Not share this with anyone, just kept it buried in my own heart, as it could have Destroyed Many.
I having been watching Dates and Date Setters, since the early 70's and they all sound good! But the question I will have for all of them, is the same question that God asked me at the time I knew He was returning.
MATT. 24:13 "WATCH THEREFORE, FOR YE KNOW NEITHER THE DAY NOT THE HOUR WHEREIN THE SON OF MAN COMETH."
MARK 13:32-33 "BUT OF THAT DAY AND THAT HOUR KNOWETH NO MAN, NO, NOT THE ANGELS WHICH ARE IN HEAVEN, NEITHER THE SON (Jesus) BUT THE FATHER ONLY.
33- TAKE YE HEED, WATCH AND PRAY; FOR YE KNOW NOT WHEN THE TIME IS."
Now I will give you the answer that I received of God many years ago- Are you Higher than Jesus or Higher than God? What do the Words of Jesus Tell you? Now we are all well Aware that we will know the Times and the Seasons and we All Know it is surely coming closely, but IF it is not on the 15th of April, how will You Answer to the Many Lambs that you have said "The Holy Spirit Told Me?"
MATT. 18:6 - BUT WHO SO SHALL OFFEND ONE OF THESE LITTLE ONES WHICH BELIEVE IN ME, IT WERE BETTER FOR HIM THAT A MILLSTONE WERE HANGED ABOUT HIS NECK, AND THAT HE WERE DROWNED IN THE DEPTH OF THE SEA."
But this I know, He is Coming and we are Not to try to go Beyond what God Said. We are Not to Try and Set Dates and Times, by Whatever Reason our human capabilities can Try to Fathom. For the last couple of years, I have watched many go and say every Feast Day, He would Come. Remember, we have Babes in our midst and if you Shipwreck their Faith, You Will Stand Accountable Before God!
I like to write about Love, Grace, Mercy and Peace, but at this time, I must write this. You will Lose ALL Credibility with All men, for you have Cried Wolf, Wolf! The Rapture Never Showed up on All Those Days! This may not Convict you, nor may it Bother you, but I would be Frightened to say I know more than God and I by my human brain have figured out the Mind of God. Charts & Dates have been around Forever. Bible Codes, now that is something different, for I see that no one puts in where they are getting these codes from the Bible. Those of us that Do have Bible Code Software can not check them out, for they do not give us Scripture and Verse. If they did, we could see them for ourselves and see if they are true or not. I find we are in Dangerous Territories.
LUKE 12:2 "FOR THERE IS NOTHING COVERED THAT SHALL NOT BE KNOWN; NEITHER HID, THAT SHALL NOT BE KNOWN."
The Bible is written, Line upon Line, Jot upon Jot, Tittle upon Tittle - Matt.5:18, Luke 16:17. The Bible is Not a Crossword Puzzle, where we Try & Jump Around to Try & Find Hidden Things. It is to be Read & Studied, as God's Holy Word! So all I can say is Beware, Lest You Stumble one of God’s "little ones" You are All Aware of the Payment for That!
I send this in Love and Not Condemnation, but Again I ask, " HATH GOD SURELY SAID?" May the Grace and Love of Jesus confirm my Warning. I leave it in His Marvelous Hands and He will judge me if I am wrong. Please No Longer Set Dates and say that Jesus Will Come on This Date, We Are Children of the Day and Not of the Night, that The Day should take us as a Thief. The Good Man, If he Knew When the Thief would have come, would Not have Suffered his house to be Broken into. Our Vessels are Filled with Oil & We are Waiting to be Called Up Hither.
And Then He Will Say "Come Up Hither!" (Just a little clue, the Spring Feasts have Already Been Fulfilled! ) Maranatha, Come Quickly, Lord Jesus. And Jesus says "Surely, I Am Coming Quickly!"
