Can you imagine?

“And tombs opened… The bodies of many godly men and women who had died were raised from the dead. They left the cemetery after Jesus’s resurrection, went into the holy city of Jerusalem, and appeared to many people…”

(Matthew 27:52-53 NLT)

Imagine if this were to happen again today, the reactions of the local people…

Well, it IS going to happen again, and soon!

The trumpet will sound, loud!

“What I am saying, dear brothers and sisters, is that our physical bodies cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. These dying bodies cannot inherit what will last forever. But let me reveal to you a wonderful secret. We will not all die, but we will all be transformed! It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed. For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies.”
— ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭15:50-53‬‬

Jesus is returning soon- and the dead in Christ will rise first- they will be resurrected, raised from the grave- even those who were cremated, supernaturally their ashes will somehow assemble back to life, just as God assembled the life of Adam from dust, dust God created by the way;- and all will rise up in the sky to meet Jesus in the parted clouds!

“For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died. We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the believers who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever.”
— ‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭4:14-17‬‬

Yes- it WILL happen. And all the living, born again believers will also be caught up into the clouds to be with Jesus, before the horrible days, 7 years of tribulation, begins.

Imagine it!

Those who will be raised who are driving cars, flying planes, sailing ships- all will in an instant, disappear!

Utter chaos will erupt! Accidents, loss of life, fatalities, crashes all over the world will occur…

Thousands of people, maybe even millions, of god-filled people representing everything GOOD in humanity, instantly disappears- leaving behind who? You? Some of your loved ones? Who?

It will instantly become a very dark, sinister world.

Certainly many who THINK they are ‘Christians’ will be surprised when they realize they too were left behind…

And all the infants, toddlers, and small children will disappear- some instantly removed from the womb and the arms of nursing mothers- could be in the midst of the night or in the broad day, no one know the hour-

Leaving behind everywhere whatever clothing they all were wearing to fall onto the ground or bed or wherever they were moments before.

When all of Gods goodness within His children disappears- what’s left? Who’s left?

You can be absolutely sure the evil one who disguises himself as an angel of light, who, under pretense, will lie and give some sort of excuse casting blame on some sort of nuclear explosion or other far fetched story… and the Antichrist will step into his reign…

But for the first 3.5 years, subtly he will persuade those remaining to trust him, and follow his ‘plan’ for ‘peace and security’… and quickly will issue in a ‘one world order’, a ‘one world government’ and a ‘one world’ economy system.

If you’re one who put off receiving Jesus Christ as YOUR Lord and Savior- who chose to reject Jesus as your redeemer, if you’ve never been born again- or, if you left your faith and entered into a lifestyle of living in sin and ungodly living- mark my words-

YOU WILL BE LEFT BEHIND.

And the pressure to take the ‘mark of the beast’ will so tempting!

Revelation 13:15-18 is the main passage in Scripture that mentions the mark of the beast. The passage says, “And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain. Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.”

See, once this happens, the Bible says no one will be able to buy or sell without having the Mark of the beast. NO ONE.

Revelation 14:9-10 warn, “If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand…”

You’ll be hunted down. They will know who you are and where you are.

Revelation 20:4 describes John seeing in a vision all those who have been killed for Christ. He wrote: “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 worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands ….”

Modern technology has led to a massive intrusion into people’s personal lives. Governments are increasingly dictating where people go, where they live, and how they worship. Neighbors are being encouraged to snitch on neighbors. The kind of phone tracking and surveillance systems being discussed and even rolled out are exactly what would be needed to enforce the mark of the beast.

Neighbors, friends, even family- will betray you. They’ll take the mark, and will turn you in.

Think about it – you are hungry and you have no food. And the money that you used to have in your bank- it is no longer good.

Your debit card? Your credit card? It’s useless.

All the stocks and investments that you own? They also are useless.

The only sign of power that you will have and it’s a false one as well, will be the sign on your arm or your forehead – the mark of the beast-it could be in form of a ‘chip’ that is implanted in you. Perhaps concealed or disguised within a ‘vaccination’- that remains to be seen.

But what we know for a biblical fact, is it will happen.

And when you accept the ‘mark of the beast’ (Satan’s mark) you are denying Christ eternally and you will never ever have an opportunity to turn back.

DON’T!

No matter what, no matter how hungry, do not sell your soul to the devil.

Quickly repent, ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins, and receive Gods free gift of salvation, and be born again.

Even during the tribulation times, there will be opportunities for repentance and salvation.

It’s just going to be more difficult because the one world order will make it a crime to worship Christ, and if you’re caught without the Mark of the beast or worshiping Jesus Christ, you will be killed.

Are you strong enough to resist?

And what would happen if YOU’RE one of those left behind, killed by an abandoned vehicle left out of control by a raptured believer? It would be too late. You’d never be able to repent after you’re dead.

But the Bible says to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord- for those who are born again. There is no fear of death for those who know Jesus Christ.

Our confidence and hope is knowing that the moment we end our life here, we start our life in heaven, in eternity.

It would be so much better for all who don’t know Christ to be clothed with Him NOW-to be ‘hidden with Him NOW’ & born again NOW-and to receive His peace and Holy Spirit NOW, so that when that day comes, and it is coming soon – you also will be ‘caught up’ to meet Him in the air raptured away from these dark times about to take place.

The day is coming. We are closer to it than ever before.

Just as was foreshadowed when Jesus was crucified, and Gods amazing resurrection power was demonstrated, and those in the grave came back to life and walked among those who knew them- Gods mighty power WILL be demonstrated again, only on a scale never before known to mankind.

Are you ready? Will you be taken, or left behind?

It’s. Your. Choice.

Death or life- blessings or cursings.

Choose life. Choose Christ.

God DEFINITELY allows -turns!

Who DOESN’T want a life that is abundantly whole, healed, put-together and full of delight???

I don’t think any of us decided when we were little children ‘when I grow up, I want to be miserable, broke, busted and disgusted!’ Right???

Yet for some of us, our lives have somehow gotten off course.

We find ourselves trapped, not the way we envisioned it to be, stuck.

Any of you find yourselves asking these questions or expressing these thoughts:

  • How in the world did this HAPPEN?
  • This surely wasn’t what I wanted.
  • What am I going to do?
  • Where did I go wrong?
  • What did I do to deserve this?

Whoa!!! Hold on, friends! You’re not alone!

And I have good news! No matter how lost you are, there’s always a way to get back in track!

God truly does allow u-turns!

Have any of y’all besides me gotten lost while traveling? Anyone else take the wrong turn before?

Let me share one true experience I had… my family STILL teases me about it!

One year, my family were traveling by car from

Virginia to Iowa, and eventually, Wisconsin for a family reunion…my husband, myself, and our three children.

I was telling them of this amazing multi-story shopping mall, with an indoor amusement park, called ‘The Mall of America’ that I visited briefly with my mother when we had a layover at the airport in-between flights… it was in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Yeah, I know this NOW… but THEN? I got it wrong. WAY wrong. Using the paper maps, I rerouted our trip, to go through INDIANAPOLIS INDIANA…. thinking that was where it was.

But of course, the nearer we got- we were not seeing signs to the Mall of America!!! I kept telling the kids ‘keep looking! It’s across the street from the airport! We can’t miss it- it’s huge!!!’

Finally, we pulled up to an airport hotel and asked the concierge ‘we must have taken a wrong turn, sir. Could you tell us which exit is for the Mall of America?’

Oh, his face expression was priceless! He broke into a belly gut laugh!!! I couldn’t figure out what was so funny until he told me-

‘Mam, you’re in INDIANAPOLIS. The Mall of America is in MINNEAPOLIS. You’re in the wrong state! You’re about 590 miles away!’

Crushed! I was embarrassed, and crushed., as I quickly realized my children were going to be disappointed… Thankfully, I’m married to THE most patient man. We added a few extra days to our trip, and sure enough- we made it to the Mall of America!

The kids got to play in the big Lego’s store, and ride the roller coaster and other rides in the in door amusement park. Fun memories were made after all- but the biggest one laughed about now, was the wrong turn!

We can laugh at our mistakes, when we confront them with grace… and learn from them-and correct them.

God wants us to live an abundant life. He knows we will make mistakes. He’s there to help ya through them. And He’s there to help us get back on track.

Just as in my story, in life- we make ‘wrong turns.’ If we are focused on the right directions, and following them, we won’t end up where we need to end up.

Adjustments must be made, and a little extra time has to be spent to get back on track- but with God, and godly people in our life- it’s absolutely doable!

Real life is abundant, pure, a gift!

Eternally good.

This can only be obtained when we listen AND DO what God’s voice is telling us what to do!

Listen!

There are two voices competing for our attention-

God’s, and Satan’s.

One is good, and wants only good for us-

The other is bad, and wants only bad for us.

We choose.

  • We choose which voice to listen to…
  • We choose which voice to obey…
  • We choose which life to live…

A life designed by God, reaching our potential and call He has planned for us-serving Him all of our days with the goal of having an abundant life well lived, meaningful…

Or a live planned by the evil one, Satan, full of struggles, deception, ungodliness, falling short, unfulfilled, no real purpose- no real peace, with his goal to kill, steal and destroy us.

When my children were small, we’d sing this song:

‘🎶 Oh be careful little eyes what you see! Oh be careful little ears what you hear! 🎶. For the Father up above is looking down with love, oh be 🎶 careful little eyes what you see! Oh be careful 🎶little ears what you hear!’

There’s so much wisdom in this simple tune.

Satan is the little ‘g’ god of this world.

God said, as Christians, we are in this world, but not OF this world.

God has said it- He has given us eyes to see, and ears to hear.

He has told us:

‘Above all else…Guard your heart. For everything you do flows from it.’ (Proverbs 4:23)

Actually- God loves us so much He has given us instructions for living a life right!

Proverbs 4:20- 27

‘My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to My Words.

Do not let them out of your sight,

Keep them within your heart;

For they are life to those who find them and healing & health to all their body.

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.

Put away perversity from your mouth; keep corrupt talk from your lips.

Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you.

Watch the path of your feet and let all your ways be established.

Do not swerve to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.’

See! God has given us a road map to navigate successfully through this life, in His Word! He’s also given us His voice, the Holy Spirit… AND- He’s given us the most amazing G.P.S. ‘God’s Precious Son.’

Without God, the Holy Spirit, and Jesus Christ, we are lost, off track, heading in the wrong direction.

It’s time for a u-turn!

If you resonate with this, if you’re feeling tugs in your heart, then the Lord is beckoning you to Him.

Pray this simple prayer and mean it in your heart:

‘Dear Heavenly Father,

I’m lost. I’ve been wandering around through my life, made a few wrong turns, and can’t seem to find my way back to you.

Help me, Lord! I see now from these scriptures that I haven’t guarded my heart…I haven’t paid attention to Your Words. I have let them out of my sight… please forgive me!

I choose to return to You, dear God. I will listen. Speak to me. Show me. Guide me. Lead me. I am Yours. In Jesus Name, Amen.’

If you’ve prayed this prayer, there’s thousands of angels in Heaven right this very moment cheering and celebrating your decision!!!

We encourage you to get into a good, bible teaching church., so that you can restart your Christian life with other believers to help disciple you.

We’d love to hear from you and to know of your decision! God bless you!
