A warning to those who will go through the Tribulation to come and the salvation found in the Gospel of Grace before it is too late. Comes in a pack of 25.
“The Age of Grace is about completed. It will end soon with the departure of the true believers of Christ into Heaven. When that event called the Rapture is finished, then the Tribulation will begin.
The Tribulation commences with a major political figure (the Antichrist) making a treaty or covenant with Israel. The treaty will probably guarantee Israel peace and safety from its Arab neighbors.
After the Tribulation begins, circumstances will change regarding a right relationship with God. Therefore, there are a number of do’s and don’t’s to follow that age.
Do not accept a mark in your right hand or forehead.
“And he [Antichrist] causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: and that no man might buy or sell save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name … and his number is Six hundred threescore and six ” (Rev. 13:16-18).
Do not join the world church.
“Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” (Rev. 18:4).
Do not follow the Antichrist.
“If any man worship the beast [Antichrist] and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name” (Rev. 14:9-11).
Do follow the 144,000.
“I saw another angel … and he cried … Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand [144,000] of all tribes of the children of Israel” (Rev. 7:2-4).
Do follow the teaching of the two witnesses who will be testifying in Jerusalem during the first three and one-half years of the Tribulation period.
“And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and three score days clothed in sackcloth” (Rev. 11:3).
Do obey the Kingdom Gospel.
“And this Gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” (Mt. 24:14).
“And I saw another angel fly in the midst of Heaven having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come: and worship Him that made Heaven and earth and the sea, and the foundations of waters” (Rev. 14:6-7).
Do worship Jesus Christ as
Messiah and King.
“We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ” (Jn. 1:41).
“Rabbi, Thou art the Son of God; Thou art the King of Israel” (Jn. 1:49).
“Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David” (Rev. 5:5).
Do good works.
“Faith without works is dead” (Jas. 2:20).
“Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labourers; and their works do follow them” (Rev. 14:13).
Do hold fast and endure.
“Hold fast till I come” (Rev. 2:25).
“He that endureth to the end [of the Tribulation] shall be saved” (Mt. 10:22).
“He that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end [of the Tribulation] to him will I give power over the nations” (Rev.2:26).
Do be faithful unto death.
“Behold, the Devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life” (Rev. 2:10).
Do look for the Second Coming of Christ to the earth at the end of the Tribulation.
“As the lightening cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall the coming of the Son of Man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together [at Armageddon]. Immediately after the Tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from Heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in Heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of Heaven with power and great glory” (Mt. 24:27-30).
“And I saw Heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He doth judge and make war” (Rev. 19:11).
“And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called The Word of God” (Rev. 19:13).
“And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule with a rod of iron” (Rev. 19:15).
“Behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be” (Rev. 22:12).
“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus” (Rev. 22:20).
Remember, dear friend, the Tribulation is not yet here, sot here is still time to be saved through the Gospel of Grace. That Gospel says:
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast” (Eph. 2:8-9).
“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:31).”
