"Revised Addition" . . . Part Two Of "Left Behind." ...

===========================================

THE GREAT TRIBULATION OF COLOSSAL CHAOTIC JUDGMENTS THAT FOLLOW THE RAPTURE OF GOD's SAINTs! . . .

( 1 ). The horrendous suffering of Humanity during that Seven year "Tribulation Period" which in the Old Testament was called "The time of Jacob's trouble { Jeremiah 30:7 }" will be indescribable. Tormenting fear and anxiety will haunt the soul of every living creature of both man and animals throughout the entire earth. ...

=========================

( 2 ). { V. 21 } Scripture: "For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, No, nor ever shall be.

( 3 ). { V. 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, { Matthew 24:21-22 }."

=========================

( 4 ). The above { Vs. 21-22 } paraphrased in commentary form ...

( 5 ). { 21 } Scripture: "For 'then [ after the Rapture of the BODY OF CHRIST' :] shall be 'great tribulation [ trouble, affliction, distress and oppression' ], such as was not since the 'beginning of the world [ six thousand years ago' ] to this time, No, nor ever shall be.

( 6 ). { 22 }: And except 'those days [ Of Tribulation' ] should be shortened, there should 'no flesh be saved [ no human being on this earth would be able to survive' ]: but 'for the elect's sake [ GOD's chosen ones' ] those days shall be shortened."

=========================

( 7 ). Scripture: "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 your people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book, {Daniel 12:1}."

=========================

( 8 ). The above { V. 1 } paraphrased in commentary form ... "And there shall be a 'time of trouble [ during the Tribulation Period' ], such as never was since there was a nation even to 'that same time [ that all of this takes place.' ]: And 'at that time [ Michael the archangel who is the protector of Israel shall come forth' and ] your people [ the Remnant of Israel:' ] 'shall be delivered [ out of the hand of the Antichrist and Satan' and this includes ], 'every one that shall be found written in the [ Heavenly ] book [ of life' ]."

============

( 9 ). Commentary ... The Tribulation will begin when mankind have entered into a reign of wicked endeavors "such as" was prevalent on the earth in Noah's day when the deluge of the Flood took place. There will be great wickedness prevailing with widespread anarchy among the world's people.

( 10 ). One of the reasons for GOD to allow such a time of trouble to transcend over this earth will be to separate every evil, lost sinner and cast him to whatever reward he may receive at the judgment of the damned. If people continue to evade GOD's will and fail to yield to Him, that person will be destroyed from this earth.

=========================

( 11 ). { V. 9 } Scripture: "Behold, the 'day of the LORD comes, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and He shall destroy the sinners therefore out of it.

( 12 ). { V. 10 }: For the stars of heaven and the constellations therefore shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in its going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.

( 13 ). { V. 11 }: And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and I will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible, { Isaiah 13:9 - 11 }." .

=========================

( 14 ). The above { Vs. 9-11 } paraphrased in commentary form ...

( 15 ). { 9 } Scripture: "Behold [ take notice' ], the 'day of the LORD [ Tribulation Period' ] comes, 'cruel [ fierce' ] both with wrath and 'fierce [ raging' ] anger, to lay 'the land [ of Israel and much of the whole earth' ] desolate: and He shall destroy the sinners therefore out of it. [ Here it is important to read { Isaiah 2:10- 22; - & - Revelation 19:11-21 }.

( 16 ). { 10 }: For 'the stars [ in the second ] heaven' and 'the constellations therefore [ with all their galaxies which are also in the second heaven': ] shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in its going 'forth [ at its rising' ], and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.

( 17 ). { 11 }: And 'I [ the LORD' ] 'will punish the [ whole ] world [ and all its people' ] for their evil, and 'the wicked for their [ guilt' and ] iniquity; and I will cause 'the arrogancy [ and haughtiness of the terrible' and ] of the proud to cease, and 'I will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible [ and of the boasting of the violent and ruthless population' ], { Isaiah 13:9-11 }." .

============

( 18 ). Commentary ... There is no doubt, that after the last person who has yielded himself to the LORD by becoming a Believer, and the last individual has decided to refuse the salvation that GOD has offered him and has been cast into hell, then the TRIUNE GOD as a whole is in complete agreement to bestow the earthly Millennial Kingdom to MESSIAH and His Saints that are at that time upon the earth.

( 19 ). The Bible student should read our 9 part message concerning [ "THE BRIDE OF CHRIST" ]. All those who abide upon the earth during the whole Millennium as saved individuals, will also live upon the future New Earth forever.

=========================

( 20 ). { V. 13 } Scripture: "I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the SON OF MAN came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought Him near before Him.

( 21 ). { V. 14 }: And there was given Him dominion, and glory and a Kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages should serve Him: His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His Kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, { Daniel 7:13-14 }."

=========================

( 22 ). The above { Vs. 13-14 } paraphrased in commentary form ...

( 23 ). { 13 } "I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like 'the SON OF MAN [ CHRIST Himself Who ] came with the clouds of [ the atmospheric ] heaven', and came to the Ancient of days [ GOD the FATHER ], and they brought Him near before Him. Read { Acts 1:9; - & - Revelation 1:7 }: [ He was taken up in clouds and He will appear again with clouds. ]

( 24 ). { 14 }: And 'there was given Him [ the MESSIAH': ] dominion, and glory and "a [ 1,000 year long ] kingdom [ at first," and then, "forever afterwards after the New Earth is created." And after: ], that all people, nations, and languages will serve Him:' [ 'in ] His [ future ] dominion [ throughout the entire Universe' and 'it ] is [ according to all the prophetic teaching of the Scriptures': ] an everlasting dominion', which 'shall not pass away', and 'His [ eternal kingdom is one ] which [ will ] not [ ever again ] be destroyed', { Daniel 7:13-14 }."

=========================

( 25 ). Scripture: "But the SAINTs of 'the most high [ GOD' ] shall 'take [ and receive ] the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and forever', { Daniel 7:18 }." - "At this time read { Revelation 3:21 }."

=========================

( 26 ). Commentary ... During the great Tribulation, controlled by the Antichrist, there will be an international army, therefore, should you be left behind at the Rapture, make sure that you DO NOT enlist or become any part of that organization. If you must die, by torture or even by being beheaded by a guillotine etc., remember this, the only way out in order to have eternal life is through JESUS CHRIST!

( 27 ). The Antichrist will be the dictator over the newly created, United States of Europe, and will simply be an incarnate devil in human flesh. Satan will give this false christ his power and the world's nations will be under the complete control of this arch-fiend.

( 28 ). Therefore no doubt, many revolutions will take place throughout the entire world. The fact is, it sounds as if there could be as many as three or more short world wars in that 7 years ... { Revelation 6:8; - 9:13-21; - & - Armageddon 19:17-21, etc. }

( 29 ). If our own estimate is true, during the Antichrist's reign and shortly after because of his reign, approximately ninety or more percent of humanity will loose their lives. At that time in just one war, one forth of the human race is to be destroyed.

( 30 ). And later in another war, another third part of the world's people that are left will perish. And at Armageddon hundreds of millions more. And that doesn't count all those tens of millions who will be killed by beheadings and world-wide disasters and etc. Few people will be left when it all ends ..., read { Isaiah 24:6 } ...

=========================

( 31 ). { V. 4 } Scripture: "And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that set thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given to him a great sword.

( 32 ). { V. 8 }: And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that set on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given to them over the forth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth, { Revelation 6:4, - & - 8 }." ...

=========================

( 33 ). The above { Vs. 4 - & - 8 } paraphrased in commentary form ...

( 34 ). { 4 } Scripture: "And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him [ the rider of the horse ] that set thereon to take peace from the earth, and that 'they [ the invaders' ] should kill one another: and there was given to him a great sword. [ Be sure and read our message concerning the destruction of Russia and her evil allies ]. And read also { Ezekiel 38:15-16, 21; - & - 39:4-5 }.

( 35 ). { 8 }: And I looked, and behold 'an [ ashy ] pale horse [ appeared ]: and his name that set on him was Death', and 'Hell [ in Hades, the realm of the wicked dead' ] 'followed with him [ closely' ]. And 'power [ with authority' ] was given 'to them [ the rider and his followers' ] over the forth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger [ famine, plague, pestilence, disease ], and with death, and with the beasts of the earth." ... See also: { Hosea 13:14; - Ezekiel 5:12; - Zechariah 2:6; - & - 13:8-9 }. ...

============

During A Horrendous Battle The Prophet States ...,

=========================

( 36 ). { V. 13 } Scripture: "And the sixth angel 'sounded [ his trumpet' ], and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before GOD,

( 37 ). { V. 14 }: Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.

( 38 ). { V. 15 }: And the 'four angels [ who had been in readiness for that hour' ] were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year for to slay the third part of man. Read { Revelation 16:16; - & - Zechariah 14:2 }. [ That 'hour: of tribulation, see { Revelation 3:10' }.

( 39 ). { V. 18 }: By these 'three [ catastrophes' ] was the third part of man killed ..., { Revelation 9:13-15, - & - 18 }." =========================

( 40 ). Commentary ... At the Second Return of MESSIAH at the end of that seven years of tribulation, the LORD is going to cast into hell all those who have taken the mark of the beast, these that are cast away are called "Goats." Read { Matthew 25:31-46 }.

( 41 ). When you read { V. 8 } above, you will notice that the beasts of the field will play a large part in the death of millions of people. These beast refers not only to animals but also to insects. During the dark ages, the flees from rats and mice carried the bubonic plague, because of the plague, untold millions in Europe were affected and died. [ Read Our message concerning the "Days Of Noah." ]

( 42 ). There have been such plagues many times in the past, but during the tribulation there will be a horrendous loss of life because of the diseases and pestilence's, and of course we cannot forget the AIDS virus that is even now running rampant over the earth, and these viruses plus others we have never heard about will increase throughout the entire 7 years of tribulation. Many people teach that the first half of that 7 years will not be to bad, and only the last half will be terrible. We do not believe this for a minute! This whole period is called "THE TIME OF JACOB's TROUBLE: { Jeremiah 30:7, etc. }" Read on . . .

( 43 ). And then, there is the case of germ warfare, many countries have stock piles of germs that they can load into missiles to aim at any country they desire. Don't you dare believe that this won't happen! These viruses will be like an army that invades the whole world and for sure it is going to happen!

=========================

( 44 ). { V. 1 } Scripture: "Blow you the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the DAY OF LORD comes, for it is near at hand

( 45 ). { V. 2 }: A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains a great people and a strong; there has not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.

( 46 ). { V. 3 }: A fire devours before them; and behind them a flame burns: the land is as the garden of Edom before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yes, and nothing shall escape them.

( 47 ). { V. 4 }: The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.

( 48 ). { V. 5 }: Like the noise of chariots on the tops of the mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devours the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.

( 49 ). { V. 6 }: Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.

( 50 ). { V. 7 }: They 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:

( 51 ). { V. 8 } 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.

( 52 ). { V. 9 } 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.

( 53 ). { V. 10 } 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:

( 54 ). { V. 11 } 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? { Joel 2:1-11 }."

=========================

( 55 ). The above { Vs. 1-11 } paraphrased in commentary form ...

( 56 ). { 1 } "Blow you the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in 'My holy mountain [ Zion' ]: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for 'the DAY OF LORD [ which brings forth many judgments during the Tribulation Period.' Therefore, you can be sure of one thing, it will take you by surprise, and you will not be ready for the soon horrible catastrophes' 'when it: ] comes [ in the very near future' ], for 'it is near at hand [ actually, much nearer than you may think' ]; Read { Ezekiel 7:3-4; - 33:1-7; - Joel 1:15; - & - Amos 5:16-20 }.

( 57 ). { 2 }: [ 'It will be ] A day [ consisting of a 7 year period' ..., 'a time: ] of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick [ mist' and 'a time of such ] darkness', as 'the morning [ dawn' is ] 'spread upon [ and over' ] the mountains.' [ 'And thus, if you miss the Rapture, you will proceed on into the Tribulation and will witness ... as we are warning you before hand, of that which will follow: ] a great [ mass of heathenistic and hostile' ] people, and 'a [ very ] strong [ army of enemies numerous and mighty.' ... And you can find by searching the history of the world 'that ]; there has not been [ such a horde of invaders ] ever the like, [ before this. ] ... [ And ], neither shall [ there ] be [ such a huge host of invaders ] any more after it, even to the years of many [ future ] generations. ... Read { Revelation 6:12-14 }.

( 58 ). { 3 }: [ And at the time of this invasion, ] A fire 'devours [ many things in a deploring manner' 'both ] before them; and behind them a flame burns [ ravishingly.' ]: 'the land [ of Israel just before this great invasion' will be looked upon by the mass of invaders: ] as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness: yes, and [ because of the destruction this great army causes ] nothing shall escape them [ or detour the ravages of this devouring horde ].

( 59 ). { 4 }: The appearance 'of them [ to the naked eyes' ] is as the appearance 'of [ war ] horses'; and 'as horsemen [ that run on a race track' ], so shall they run. See { Revelation 9:7 }.

( 60 ). { 5 }: Like the noise of chariots on the tops of the mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devours the stubble, as a strong people [ or as a huge army with many soldiers, all ] set in battle array. ... Again read: { Revelation 9:7-9 }.

( 61 ). { 6 }: Before 'their face [ i.e., before the faces of these invaders' ] 'the people [ that are the ones being invaded' ] shall 'be much pained [ with anguish and terror', ]: 'all [ of their ] faces shall gather blackness, [ i.e., and thus withdraw the brightness of their faces and will turn their faces to a waxy pale, color' ]. Read { Isaiah 13:8; - Jeremiah 30:6; - & - Nahum 2:10 }.

( 62 ). { 7 }: They [ the invaders ] shall run like mighty men; they [ in their supernatural and acrobatic abilities ] shall 'climb the wall [ evidently such as ants or spiders,' they do this ] like men of war; and 'they shall march every one [ straight ahead' ] on his ways, 'and they [ like marching troops' ] shall not break their ranks . .

( 63 ). { 8 } Neither shall one thrust another [ with a weapon of any kind such as a sword or a spear or etc. ]; they shall walk every one in 'his [ own' ] path: and when they fall upon the sword [ or any other weapon ], they shall not be wounded.

( 64 ). { 9 } They shall run 'to and fro [ back and forth like a mist of vapor' ] in the city; they shall run upon the wall, 'they shall climb upon [ and into ] the houses [ and into any other structures as they see fit' ]; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.

( 65 ). { 10 } The earth 'shall quake before them [ as many earthquakes' taking place in many places at the same time ]; the heavens shall tremble [ perhaps because of 'the thunderous voice of GOD, read { Psalm 77:18' }: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: [ 'This sounds similar to { Revelation 16:14' } and 'of demons like locusts in { Revelation 9:2-4' }:

( 66 ). { 11 } And 'the LORD shall utter His voice before His army [ just as a general when giving commands to his troops' ]: for His camp is very great: for He is strong that executes His Word: For the day of the LORD [ the time of Jacob's trouble { Jeremiah 30:7 } is great and very terrible; and who can abide it? { Joel 2:1-11 }." ... Read also { Matthew 24:22; - Revelation 6:16-17; - Isaiah 26:20-21; - 34:1-4, -&- 8}.

============

( 67 ). Commentary ... The above verses all have double meanings, and can refer to Atomic fallout, of huge swarms of locusts, the invasion of demons, of wicked Angels, of people, and definitely of germ warfare. All of this, as we see, will cause untold "millions of deaths" and suffering.

( 68 ). No type of medical science will be able to cure any of this trouble because the LORD will be judging the earth and its inhabitants because of their wickedness and unrepentant hearts!

( 69 ). The armies of the nations will be under the wrath of GOD at that time, they are going to be utterly destroyed: therefore, no matter what, never join in any army or in any other organization that goes against the will of ALMIGHTY GOD or against JEHOVAH's adopted nation Israel.

=========================

( 70 ). { V. 1 } Scripture: "Come near, you nations, to hear; and 'hearken [ listen' ], you people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it.

( 71 ). { V. 2 }: For the indignation of the LORD is upon all nations, and His fury upon all the armies: 'He has utterly destroyed them [ future tense' ], He has delivered them to the slaughter.

( 72 ). { V . 3:} Their slain also shall be cast out, and their 'stink [ of the invaders dead bodies' ] shall come up out of their carcasses, and the mountains shall be 'melted [ and flow ] with their blood.' [ Atomic! ]

( 73 ). { V. 4 }: And 'all the host [ of stars, meteorites and planets' ] of [ 'the first and second ] heavens shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll': and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falls off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree, { Isaiah 34:1-4 }."

=========================

( 74 ). Commentary ... The battle of Armageddon will be fought at the close of the Tribulation Period and at that time, the combined armies of the nations will be destroyed. Also the earth itself will be drastically changed in such a way that it will be unrecognizable.

( 75 ). It is likely that the continents will once again join each other as they seem to have been at the beginning. If one will glance at a world map he will notice the way the North and South American Continent and the African and European Continents could fit together very nicely. Read { Genesis 10:25 }.

=========================

( 76 ). Scripture "And He gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue 'Armageddon [ Megiddo, Mount of slaughter' ], { Revelation 16:16 }."

=========================

( 77 ). Commentary ... When the Tribulation Period begins, people will likely believe the end of the world is at hand. The Hebrew word Megiddo was "gadded," which has two meanings: "gather in troops" and "cut off and destroy." See { Joel 3:12 }.
