Return of Christ, Rescuing our own from the Apostasy

End Times: The time has come 5

There were two kinds of sin upon Jesus that day. They added up to an almost insurmountable mountain of soul crushing lethal burden. What happened to all of those sins?”

So how does the sacrificial Lamb of God escape the law of sin and death? He is sin at that point. We all know the story. We should see that there are two goals for the Son of Man, not one. The second one He cannot avoid. It is physical death to satisfy the Law for us. The first goal is to show us the Way to eternal life. So before dying what did He show us?

Jesus as the Son of Man rightfully could have condemned mankind. Right is not always righteous. Had Jesus killed us like we kill others, with Words of His mouth (heart), the Father’s plan for mankind would have collapsed.

Thankfully the plan did not end with Jesus’ intercessory death. It began! We see a critical test taking place. It is not a test of Jesus the Son of God but a test of us as Jesus the Son of Man represents us. Oh the glorious potential we have!

So what did He show us? Nailed to the Cross Jesus says, “Forgive them Father they know not what they do!” He not only forgives, He intercedes! In hindsight we revere this grace from Him. We know it is the beginning of His intercessions for mankind. For centuries we have attached this act to His divine origin, separating it from his (and our) earthly limiting existence. The divine in origin was always intended to be spiritually applied but can not apply in agreement with carnality. The Son of Man, obediently applied this grace even while suffering! Dying first to His human rights, the Word of God that He taught us then applied to Him because He was a real human. He is proving to us our potential, our likeness to Him first here and then as eternal brothers and sisters. As it was to Him, it is our deliverance, our key to the narrow gate of eternity!

Jesus has endured unbelievable pain and maybe worse, rejection. What do you do when you are rejected? What do you do when you feel ripped off by someone, insulted to your face by someone, physically accosted by someone, or someone threatens your security on purpose? At the heart of it all is rejection. I have learned that instinctively, rejection rejects. In relational conflicts most are experiencing rejection or actions masked as rejection. Often we push back. The enemy knows this. This will never happen in heaven! We cannot smuggle this reactionary response into heaven. We must empty ourselves of this carnality.

I absolutely believe when Jesus forgave us of everything, all the sins He bore for mankind vaporized! As He forgave He was forgiven. Matthew 6:14-15 (NASB) The death Christ first died, superseded the death He died physically. His dying to self by compassionately forgiving the sins perpetrated against Him protected Him! His grace set us free to potentially be saved because He did not retain our sins against Him.

Nothing was left (in Jesus’ heart) for the devil to point to. Nothing was left for the Word of God to judge! If we forgive, if we forgive all others FROM OUR HEARTS, there is nothing for the Word of God to judge except to find us without spot of blemish, holy and blameless! If we pursue peace with all men, it sets us apart, we will see God! (Hebrews 12:14) Once reconciled to God, (Romans 5:10) our personal sins going forward are covered by the Christ like forgiveness we grant others. Resurrection life was His reward. It will be ours also if we exercise the same discipline Jesus did.

“We must die before we die, to live after we have lived.” jme

Once, I believe forgiven, Jesus was left for six more hours? He wondered why? Next post we will talk of another example He set for our benefit and what He may have shown God, what He may have forgotten, that delayed His departure.

You are loved and being guarded. Guard others likewise and invite all, as we are leading up to how “We initiate the return of Christ.”

End Times: The time has come 4

Review: “What do you mean Mike? Are you calling Jesus a sinner??? NO way!!!! This is the last post I will read man, you are WAY off base.” 

Your reverence for Christ is well placed.” “He has shown us a potential within us that He as the Son of Man was destined to teach and then show the sons of men. That potential will save us!”

Jesus had to become sin and suffer the Passion to show mankind how to use the most important key to the kingdom. We see Jesus the sinless (Hebrews 4:15), who emptied Himself of all that heaven meant to Him in order to be with us and make “all things possible” between us and God. Romans 8:3 says His Father sent Him (Jesus) “in the likeness of sinful flesh.”

God saw potential in us that our sinful flesh hides. God hid His Son in that same flesh, hiding the fullness of Deity for a purpose. Jesus dying to satisfy the Law for us was a legal matter achieved because  the Devil underestimated the power of the Holy Spirit working in a Son of Man. Jesus living was to reveal and unlock our potential, it was the key to our second chance. I said potential. The sons of man, by the Holy Spirit are able also, if they will, to achieve the same reward as Christ!

As the Son of God, Jesus did not have to prove anything. As the Son of Man He came to heal our impaired judgment, to teach and prove the truth to us. These things will save us! Things that can come from within us. How? Is the kingdom of God within us! It is, if His teachings are! If they are then kingdom characteristics will be exhibited generously by us as kingdom citizens, even though we are here for a season.

What do we know about those characteristics?  Ask Jesus. The good news of the kingdom was the core of all He shared. Why was that important? Qualifiers! If this then that. Like the laws of physics, gravity, thermodynamics, if this then that. God throughout the ages and Christ often told us, to get this you must do that, or do not do this or you will get that! These laws require our obedience either way. This is not works. I cannot flap my arms fast enough to fly! There is a law that will work for me. Same here.

To enter the kingdom I must qualify myself through all that Jesus taught. “Whoa Mike that doesn’t sound like good news!” In fact Jesus qualified Himself as the Son of Man, by implementing the laws of the good news of the kingdom, proving His citizenship, gaining resurrected life, AND He proved our potential by achieving it Himself!

How did Jesus do it? What if Jesus died a death, before He gave up His physical life, before commending His Spirit unto the Father? What if one death superseded the other, robbing death of its power over our spirit/soul man? What if the death Jesus chose first functions like the law of lift which can prevail over the law of gravity?

Paul speaks of a conflicting separation between his flesh man and his spirit man in Romans 7 & 8. The Word says our flesh will not inherit the kingdom, concluding that only our soul/spirit man can. Paul speaks of the Law of the Spirit of Life in Romans 8:2. This law defeats or supersedes the law of sin and death, the law of condemnation. However a point we seem to have missed is that Romans 8:2 must be at work in us, setting us free, for Romans 8:1 to apply to us. This Law of the Spirit of Life was functioning in the Lord’s life. What “heading” do we think all of His teachings fell under?

Let’s consider a practical question. Have you ever wondered where all those sins went?

There were two kinds of sin upon Jesus that day. Second came all of mankind’s sins which the Father intended for Him to bear. First, came all the sins we perpetrated upon the Son of Man that day, sins meant to stop God’s plan! We saw false accusations, unjust punishment, false imprisonment, condemnation, rejection, and more. They all added up to an almost insurmountable mountain of soul crushing lethal burden. What happened to all of those sins?

Learn of our potential, gain a heart of accomplishment if pursuing Christ likeness means anything to you.  Survive the lawlessness that is here and the escalating Godlessness that is represented by the red skies these mornings.

The time has come, guard others as you are guarded, receive the Word hidden for such a time as this. Awake! Embrace your distress. It holds a discipline that rescues you and others you will lead.

“Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.”

Daniel 12:3

Serving Him as I serve you beloved,


Please alert others around the world, He waits.

“Acts 3:20-21 (NASB77)
“… and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, 21 whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time. “   (Review this in Acts for further understanding.)

What Christ actually spoke must be restored to our absolute commitment. That which He spoke about our involvement in His return must now come to light, even though it invites darkness. Fear not oh righteous ones, the darkness is no more than the dimming of the theater lights, a prelude to Christ’s triumphant entrance and an utterly victorious  scene foretold for centuries!

End Times: The time has come 3

John said this in “John 3:36 (NKJV, NASB) “36 He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”

Paul said this in Roman’s 1:5 speaking of Jesus. “Through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles, for His name’s sake…”

Compare both above to this verse from Romans 5:10 (NKJV, NASB) “10 For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. “

Paul is pointing to a two-fold experience with Jesus and Father God just like John was.  Paul is saying our being “saved” as we have called it, is actually our “reconciliation” to God by the Lord’s sacrificial death. Paul continues by saying we will actually be saved (future tense) by “His life.” Christ’s “life” is what we know of Him. Paul means we are to be saved at a future point by our implementation from now until then; by the Father’s teachings through Jesus, by our living out the Lord’s responses to how He was treated especially just before and from the cross. This is the “life” of Jesus. It is to be ours also.

This two-fold idea shakes our foundations but they need to be shaken. These scriptures have always been there. Any assumption on our part that our salvation is already a done deal leaves us unprepared to resist the very troubling and distracting events we are already seeing. The lawlessness to come will become far worse. We know our love toward others is already growing cooler as we watch the evening news, wondering “What the heck is going on?” We are angry over the state of our nation. Again it all is a scheme of the Devil, a deadly offense meant to cause us to poison ourselves. Unforgiveness is like drinking poison, and expecting someone else to die!

Jesus told us what is going on. He warned us not to be troubled by it. “But Lord!”

He who is forewarned is forearmed. Armed with what? What was Jesus armed with?

The Love of God was sent into this world not to sustain this lost and dying world but to maintain the eternal life of the souls that would grasp love’s eternal life saving power, sustaining THEM as long as necessary. While training us to maintain, God is also preparing us for entrance into eternity and the kingdom of His beloved Son. Jesus did not simply pay a price and that was it.

Oh God let us see the most positive focal-point of the event was Christ’s last act. He emptied Himself by forgiving, by interceding for us. We must also do as Jesus did, to enter the kingdom. We must rid ourselves of anything that is of this world. What things? Those spiritually paralyzing things which we know will not be in heaven.  What a key to the kingdom. If we know anger, bitterness and unforgiveness will not be there, we know…it must not be in us, in our heart, in our soul and spirit!

We look at Jesus and revere Him. Jesus was trying to show us the kingdom!  He came preaching the gospel of the kingdom. Dying, literally or dying to self centered self, at face value is not good news unless it leads to something far better.  Wars have been fought and men have died to protect something they considered far greater than themselves. Jesus was no different. His life and death for us made possible our entrance into the kingdom. He taught us then died to this world but didn’t really die because He implimented the Words of eternal life. We are to learn this and then die daily to this life and maybe also die literally, but like Him, never die.  His life examples, The Way,  makes that eternal life possibility a reality for us if we embrace The Way obediently. Obedience is a distressful reality. We all know that obedience has been difficult.

Paul is saying our salvation is not achieved just because Jesus died. He is saying we are freely “reconciled” when we believe Jesus died for us and we ask Him to be Lord over our lives. Paul then says there is more to it. Whoa Mike, Jesus plus what? Dear friend Paul is saying Jesus plus Jesus.

Assuming you have asked Him to be Lord at all, many have long believed that was our part of the deal, because, Jesus did everything. Look, Jesus did what we could not do so we could do what He said to do. “You are my friends if you do what I command you.”  John 15:14  Jesus has this expectation of us, and He and the Father are one!

The eternal question then is this. Have we obediently (John 3:36) let Him be Lord? “Mike this is very discouraging. God knows we all struggle (and fail) to do that.” Yes He does and praise God He has made provision. WE however must grasp the Spirit of that provision and implement it obediently.

We made a pledge that if God would forgive us through Jesus, that we would gratefully make Him Lord of our lives.  To dispel the “works” question, God freely forgives us, cleanses, and receives us with a view toward our future entrance. God however fully expects us to keep our word to Him. He keeps His Word to us.  God knows and shared through Jesus what is required to prepare us for eternal life.  “Well Mike, we sin in word thought and deed daily. How can we maintain our relationship with God?” Dear friend, we are looking at our failures. We must look at the Lord’s success. The Father has made a Way where there was no Way. We do it the way Jesus the Son of Man did it!

“What do you mean Mike? Are you calling Jesus a sinner??? NO way!!!! This is the last post I will read man, you are WAY off base.”  Your reverence for Christ is well placed. Let your appreciation for Him rise to another level in the next post. Jesus (legally) became sin for our sake and yet rose from the dead gloriously. He has shown us a potential within us that He as the Son of Man was destined to show the sons of men. That potential will save us! We however must impliment it.

You are loved and being guarded in Jesus name, for the time has come.

End Times: The time has come 2 Do I really believe?

Do I really believe? What does “believe” mean? (Continued from “End Times: The time has come. The Storm is coming.”

In John 3:36 NASB and NKJV, it says, “If you believe on the Lord you have eternal life, if you do not obey the Son you do not have life but the wrath of God rests upon you!”

Holy cow you say! ” In the KJV the first part is the same. The second part says, ” if you do not “believe” the Son you do not have life and the wrath of God rests upon you.” “I believe in Him and I believe Him too.”

Right. My point exactly. We have seen the same word, been taught the same word but in the original text the word “believe” is two different words. (John 3:36 KJV, but NASB and NKJV [are different.]

The first “believe” is “Pisteuo” which means to entrust. (Strong’s G4100If I give my life savings to a financial counselor, I am saying, I trust You and will literally follow your counsel, risking all that is precious to me. This is why we gain eternal life. Our Way to eternity is determined by our Counselor and we agree to submit to Him.

The second “believe” in the KJV is the word “apeitheo.” (Strong’s G544) This word gives us the word apathetic. In the Greek it means to be disobedient or to disobey, unbelieving, obey not, believe not).

John is pointing to a discipline that has been cast aside as some sort of works. Not so. Obedience does not purchase anything, it maintains what you have. It maintains your reconciled relationship with God. More on that soon.

Remember the rebellion in heaven? Lucifer and 1/3 of the angels were cast down to the earth. Do you think there will ever be a rebellion in heaven again? Why would God populate His Son’s kingdom with a rebellious lot? Right…He wouldn’t.

The church is about to be awakened to the discipline of obedience. The Word says Jesus, yes that’s Jesus the Son of God, the Son of Man, “learned obedience by things that He suffered.”

The child of God obeys the Father and the things taught by Jesus, in His name. This is a maturing process that takes time but must eventually be “fruitful” or be demonstrated. This obedience proved the Lord’s submissive will to the Father and the Father’s plan to us. Jesus saw past now into the future and the joy set before Him. WE are that joy. Why us? Because He knows we will come to know  Him and we too will learn discipline by the things which we suffer. Oh great Mike what an uplifting message.  I am sure Jesus felt the same way in the Garden.

“Obey” is almost a bad word in church. Just remember, bad will be called good. The time has come for us to embrace what looks like bad and realize it is on the path to heaven. We must start to obey the Lord’s teachings now in order to have mastered them in the coming time of distress. As we daily pick up our cross, faithfully dying to self, we are willing ourselves unto Christ. To others we will remind them of Christ. There is a time coming when that act will save us. Jesus has spoken it.

So, when Jesus took that cross in our place, what was that to us? “It is eternal life! We are forgiven. It is salvation! We are saved forever!” Not quite according to John. Our first confession/submission to Christ does accomplish all that by God’s grace. It is all true because God is faithful to keep His end of the deal. John then implies there is a second half to the “deal.” He says our obedience is necessary or we “have no life but the wrath of God rests upon us.”

This is why “believing in Jesus” is not salvation. Entrusting ourselves obediently to His instructions, that, is our salvation. Our English vernacular for “believe” fails to express the critical factor of obedience. It is not works. It is obedience. It is a required discipline in heaven, to be demonstrated by us right here. Yes, right here! If Jesus had to demonstrate obedience, how can we not know it is required of us as His brothers and sisters? We have not been taught might be one reason we do not know.

Think about this. No doctrine intended here. Once Jesus came to earth, took upon Himself sinful flesh, even though He did not sin, is it possible even His “Son of Man” side had to be tested for absolute obedience? After all, the “Son of Man” was going back to heaven in a different form than when He left. He is coming back here to rule and reign for a thousand years! I am not saying His divinity had to be tested. The Word does say as a Son He learned obedience. I think He learned it so He as King of Kings could say to us in eternity, or even now, I’ve been there and done that, I understand.” This is a king we can honor. His judgment will be just because of this.  He does not ask us to do anything He has not done or endured.

Did you not think there is a reason we are restricted to this earth?  Those who enter into eternity will be wearing the red badge of self-denial, self-crucifixion, maybe even the bloody badge of a glorifying Christ like death. Can you imagine the look in the Lord’s eyes as He receives you, knowing you died as He died, even interceding for those who killed us, NO, who helped us “accomplish our departure.”  (See Mark: The Mount of Transfiguration)

Next time we address Paul’s confirmation of John’s verse. Be prepared for an understanding that will shake your foundations. Just remember, I come to you in the spirit of Daniel 12. The message is distressing but it rescues those written in the book. Why do they need rescuing?

You are deeply loved,

End times: The time has come. The Storm is coming.

What shall we say then, the Word of God is not true?

As we see the extent to which the globalist’s will go to to implement their agenda, in the current confirmation process as well as the obvious ongoing attacks against President Trump, I come back to this post from 2014.

The skies are (even more ) red these mornings. Do we not know what that represents? Jesus, the Messiah, stood right in front of them and they knew Him not.

Matthew 16:2-3 (NASB)   “But He [Jesus] replied to them, “When it is evening, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.’
And in the morning, ‘There will be a storm today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Do you know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but cannot discern the signs of the times?”

Matthew 16:4 (NASB)
4  An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign; and a sign will not be given it, except the sign of Jonah.” And He left them and went away.

So what was involved with Jonah?

  1. He did not want to preach to the Ninevites even though told to do so by God. Sign: there will be a resistance in the end times by the church. “Let God sort’em out” will be a dominate attitude.
  2. God will swallow up the church until those who will, will preach to all the nations a message rejected until then. Many will hear, many will not. Many will be saved, many will not be.
  3. The many who hear will be a witness, a testimony to all nations then darkness will rise up world wide against anyone professing Jesus as Lord. Those who actually make Him Lord will survive eternally.

Is the church ready for The Storm that is approaching? Yes, I am saying The Storm because God prophesied it, so in essence God is the Storm and He is a sure thing.

Mankind’s whole experience has been about God receiving a family of faithful, obedient loved ones according to His Son’s likeness. The Storm will prove Whose we are. Trials, testings, obedience versus disobedience, will do that. The Son of God, God in the flesh, learned obedience by the things that He suffered. He learned how hard it can be to obey! (Hebrews 5:8 KJV)

That being the case, where do we stand, what course is the church on? What is being taught? Is obedience, a condition of salvation?

John 3:36 (NASB)
36  He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”

Yes obedience is required! Is it being taught in church? No in most it is not! Obedience has been miss-labeled as “works.”Obedience is about staying saved not getting saved.

So, what course are we on personally? Will we obediently endure to the end or until whenever our personal end is? How do we do that?

Without knowing our exit strategy, some will not! Jesus warned us so we might endure and then showed us the strategy, by obeying, by implementing  the Word of God Himself! His enduring intercessory love was example and His resurrection was proof to us.

Can we do anything to stop The Storm? We might as well ask, “Did Jesus have to go to the Garden of Gethsemane?” Is there any higher standard of obedience in the face of trial than what Jesus showed us?

To enter eternity successfully are we willing to surrender to God’s will? Can we see a likeness to Christ in God’s intention toward us?  Shall we sleep for a thousand years or through our faithful stand for Christ, shall we rule and reign with Him for a thousand years? What?

Revelation 20:4-5 (KJV)
4  And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
5  But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 

We know the anguish Jesus went through and Whose will He submitted to. God’s will encompassed far more than the sacrificial death of His Son for us. God’s will was for us to see the keys to the kingdom of heaven in action and grasp them with our hearts. We saw obedience  and a love that endured to glorify God tremendously. God wants us to honor His Son by our own obedience to His teachings (supplied by the Father) and example. Christ’s reward will be our reward, guaranteed!

Only by practice now will we succeed then!

“When” the Rapture is to occur is not important. God wants us ready to go now. Our exit strategy was His exit strategy.

These are instructions to be revealed in the end times according to Daniel 12. They will rescue those written in the “book” by awakening them to the means of their rescue. Some will receive it, some will not.

Many preachers say Jesus could come at any minute. The Apostasy must come first. The Abomination of Desolation must occur first. A Peace treaty with Israel for 7 years must occur first for just a few things. Be glad! This is a critical time to prepare ourselves and our hearts.

On a trip from New York to London the course is pretty direct until the ship approaches the coast of London. Entrance to the harbor requires a change of course. Salvation unto eternal life is a similar journey. We still have the same destination but to arrive safely as we approach the harbor we must turn the ship to a different heading. This is a call we can not avoid. Traditional doctrines or accepted views, once useful, must now give way to the necessary priorities that God is now pointing to. There are shoals outside the harbor. Safe entrance requires our obedience.

John 3:36 (NASB, NKJV)  “He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”  

Even this scripture above has been misunderstood by translation.  What you just read is the correct translation of the Greek words and calls to everyone who has asked Jesus to be Lord, entrusting Him with our eternal lives, to therefore understand that obedience is compelled by God to make Him Lord. Jesus did not give us eternal life. He made eternal life possible.

Invite your friends around the world. I am coming to you in the spirit of Daniel 12.

You are loved,   Michael

The book (see first blog) “Exit Strategy We initiate the return of Christ” is available in e-book form. Printed versions are forthcoming.




Exit Strategy We initiate the Return of Christ! The Book

“We initiate the Return of Christ!”

Salvation through Jesus is NOT the Good News of the kingdom Jesus was talking about in Matthew 24:12-14 NASB.

Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold.
13  But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.
14  This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.”

First of all, Jesus was speaking about the beginning of end times NOT about the beginning (salvation) of our lives in Him.

The “This” He is referencing is in the previous verse. Have we preached that our love must endure toward the lawless in order to be saved as Jesus said? Jesus spoke what amounts to, an as yet, unfulfilled prophesy!

What is the prophecy? According to Jesus “this” shall be preached to all nations and then the end can come.””This” is the message Jesus is speaking of.

What is that word “end” referring to? Every end must have a beginning. Is Jesus saying he can return promptly or does the “end” mean all the other events He spoke of will be triggered so that afterward Jesus will return? I believe He is declaring the latter.

Sharing Jesus as Savior with others goes without saying. Everyone Jesus was speaking of in Matthew 24: 9-14 already knows Him. “Then they will deliver you…” “You will be hated because of my name…” There is a falling away! That which saves us is what He was speaking of.

Is it reasonable that Jesus and the Father have been patiently waiting for events to come into alignment and now They wait for us? Jesus said “THEN the end shall come.”

I am not saying we instantly trigger the trumpet of God and Jesus shows up. On the contrary we, the followers, actually trigger the release of darkness upon the world. The Word says that is the “end” that must come first!

God has opened the scriptures that prove how we initiate Christ’s eventual return which must be proceeded by a season of unrestricted darkness. Why would we want to release darkness? We are already seeing darkness rising from the shadows to levels of blatant offensiveness. Our protecting ourselves, by enduring love, automatically releases darkness. As Jesus said our enduring saves us! We do not really have a choice but to prepare and discipline ourselves by Jesus’ instructions and “preach” it all over the world.

“This” is a very distressing message, “this” message, will awaken us to our exit strategy as we reach, reach, reach for the eternal saving knowledge of Jesus. KNOWING what He knew IS the “saving knowledge of Jesus.” This is why He came; it teach us.

Like Jesus in the garden, knowing the enemy would come for Him, we also will trigger the hour of darkness.

Matthew 24:13-14 is not about getting saved it is about staying saved! Many “believers” can be spared from the Apostasy by the understanding found here. Some will but not all will.

God knows many are not prepared for what is coming. God knows you are thinking, “I AM SECURE!” The author thought the same thing. Do not bet your eternal life on your current understanding.

Jesus is speaking to ALL of us! If we do not accept God’s help, it will be our fault not His. His Word will judge us.

Also find in Exit Strategy the biblical difference between reconciliation and salvation! For centuries we have confused the two. Find what John, Paul and Jesus said we must now understand and do, to maintain our reconciliation, so we reach the salvation of eternity, saved by His Way, purifying ourselves as He did, (1 Pet 1:22, 2 Col 11:2, 1 John 3:3) …no spots, no blemishes, holy, blameless!

What Exit Strategy declares is shocking, but think urgency not heresy!

Being ready to go or to stay supersedes all other scriptural positions.

Because fear might have driven us away from the faith and for some it still might, our part in the end to come has been hidden by God until now, I believe, for this very reason.

These are the keys to the kingdom. Enduring love is the heart of the kingdom. Why would He give us keys if they are not required?

Remember the reward to those who embrace these keys.

“Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever…conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time.” Daniel 12:4 (NASB)

What is the insight Daniel is speaking of?

There is an awakening we have believed would come. The change called for from the scriptures, from our traditional thinking, is so significant God says you will believe and know that this is it! He also says many will NOT!

This is the tipping point God has created. As Jesus said in Luke 4:21, the author also believes that in this book, “Today this scripture (Daniel 12) has been fulfilled  in your hearing.” Read the blog postings. Read the book.

WE ARE the Feast of Trumpets to God Himself as we signal our readiness for all that is coming. How? By embracing and preaching a very specific message.

Jesus signaled the Father by willingly going to the Garden. We will also. We know God’s patience is running out because we see events that speak of the darkness are here already and growing. As darkness blocks the light, our opportunities will cease. John 9:4b (NASB77) “… night is coming, when no man can work. “

Beloved when it comes, our fellowship in Christ’s sufferings will be eternally worth it!  God’s will being  done is all that matters. This was Christ’s salvation and reward. It is ours also!

Why has Jesus not come already?
Repent therefore and return, that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; 20  and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, 21   whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time.” Acts 3:19-21 (NASB77)

Doctrines, oral laws, denominational differences, will fall to the wayside in the light of His clarity, His grace, and the singleness of mind we are being called to.

God is simplifying salvation one last time. First came the law, then Jesus simplified the law, now God is pointing to the simplest level within what Jesus taught us and yet the most powerful and encompassing Way that will free many and save any who have the courage and inspiration to implement it.

It is His “Exit Strategy.”
