We Are Not Appointed Unto Wrath
when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them
that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true,
dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
In the passage preceding the above scripture the Lamb (Christ) opens up the first four seals of the book (Scroll). Each of these seals corresponds with one of the four horsemen. From the above passage we can surmise that Christ has not yet begun His judgment of the earth. Who then is behind the havoc which the four horsemen are causing?
And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and
the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman,
and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the
mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from
the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
It is the ‘kings of the earth’, the Illuminati. The four horsemen bring rioting and civil unrest, economic collapse and finally war and famine yet the ‘kings of the earth’ have not yet taken refuge because they are the ones directing the mayhem. But once the earth quakes with the opening of the 6th seal they recognize that the great day of the Lamb’s wrath has come upon them. From here on through, all the bowls and trumpets are related to God’s judgment, the above mentioned great ‘wrath of the Lamb’.
The phrase “The day of the Lord” can be found throughout the bible. I ask that all of you wise Christians who study the Word do so regarding this expression, because once you do you will realize it does not refer to the return of the Lord, but the “great day(s) of His wrath” otherwise known as Daniel’s 70th week.
For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain
salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
1 Thessalonians 5 is an important chapter to interject here because it deals head on with questions of the timing of the "day of the Lord" which in some spots in the bible is plural; that is to say, there is more than one "Day of the Lord" it is a time period. This indicates to me that this phrase which is throughout the bible refers not to His return, but His judgment, His wrath. But as we see above we are not appointed to suffer His wrath. Let's look a few verses ahead:
And I saw another angel ascending from the east,
having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the
four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying,
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 of
all the tribes of the children of Israel.
We see here that God is protecting His people through His judgment, not from it. Does this mean there is no rapture for the Gentiles? Is God going to leave His faithful Gentile believers to fend for themselves? Of course not! The only people being protected here are specifically Jews.
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth
in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye
can do nothing.
False teachers will try to wiggle out of the obvious fact here, that the Gentile believers are nowhere to be found. They tell us we are spiritually 'grafted in' to the Jewish race, but that is a lie. We are grafted into Christ, not the Jewish race. Since the cross both Jew and Gentile must come through the Son Jesus Christ to obtain salvation. The law is dead to us, a dead vine.
And I will establish my covenant between me and thee
and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to
be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.
They use their ‘replacement theology’ to teach us that our God is unholy as He has broken the ‘everlasting covenant’ He made to the Jewish people and that the Gentiles are now the ‘children of the promise’. That is another lie. Do you see how deep the deception goes? Do you understand why we cannot trust these denominations, ministries and religious institutions?
