"I Am Coming Back with a Vengeance!"

I'm posting this with confidence that He who speaks in the still small voice as written in 1 Kings 19 with Elijah the prophet, still speaks, and it has been confirmed. This is a weighty message and one that every reader should heed unless you are capable of withstanding the Lord's vengeance in your own strength. With the release of any Word of prophecy, I yield to the Spirit of God on timing and how it's to be shared. You'll note that I'm starting with the most current, which leads up to the study in Holy Scriptures where you'll find it supported.

Tell them that I’m releasing a spirit in the land and I will reckon every man unto myself. You are either for me or against me.

Considering the critical news in Syria this past week I believe this Word should be published and shared.

I received an answer from the Lord on March 17. But, before that consider this: If our land experiences the consequences of our sinful ways, you’ll want to be safe in the secret sacred place with Jesus. Return to Him before it’s too late! God is pouring out His wrath and being saved and sanctified is your only hope in these Last Days before the second coming of Christ.

I interceded in the Spirit and God spoke in the prophetic.
He will reckon every man unto Himself.
If we're truly His, we'll be counted. There's coming a time of separating. Whose are you? We must be rooted and grounded in Christ and growing in Him. Otherwise, we are already cursed (fig tree). No time for being half in.

The wind and rain will come, but those who cling to the Lord will be rooted in Christ.

Don't fear, but press in. Abide in Him!

March 17, 2017

In February, I knelt with the unction of the Holy Spirit with hands lifted and open. Then God spoke and gave me the scrolls, which I believe to be the Word of God with revelation.

It’s important that I preface first and foremost what we as Body of Christ do from here and why this message. Focus on the HOPE in GLORY that was once preached and received by you. Regardless of your stance currently, I believe if you’re reading this God has a plan to restore you to the faith and from there you will strengthen the brethren. Yes, you will return to the Lord! So why is God speaking such gloom and doom here while others are witnessing the warm and fuzzy side of God? I’m wondering that too, but God is adding and building here. There’s no agenda or goal outside of pleasing the Lord at Cup of Goodness or in my daily ministry. If God is speaking I will listen, eat His Words in the Holy Scriptures and release it. And my heart rejoices gladly in doing it!

This week I inquired of the Lord when He returns. He answered me.

I am coming back with a vengeance. I will release a spirit in the land because many call me Lord but do not do the things I say.

I am not surprised to find evidence of this prophetic Word being clear, concise and a mirror image in the scriptures.

Life Application Study Bible: The book of 1 Thessalonians is to strengthen the Thessalonian Christians in their faith and give them the assurance of Christ’s return. The book 2 Thessalonians was written by Paul to clear up the confusion about the second coming of Christ. Also, being prepared for his coming means spreading the gospel, reaching out to those in need, and building the church, his body. As you read 2 Thessalonians, then, see clearly the reality of his return and your responsibility to live for him until that day

The Comfort of Christ’s Coming
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words. 

2 Thessalonians 1:7-10
 And to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed. 

Life Application Study Bible: The “everlasting destruction” that Paul describes is the lake of fire (see Revelation 20:14)—the place of eternal separation from God. Those people who are separated from God in eternity no longer have any hope for salvation

The Great Apostasy
2 Thessalonians 2:1-4
Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

Life Application Study Bible: Paul mentions the Antichrist, not so we might identify him specifically, but so we might be ready for anything that threatens our faith. If our faith is strong, we don’t need to be afraid of what lies ahead, because we know that this lawless man has already been defeated by God, no matter how powerful he becomes or how terrible our situation seems. God is in control, and he will be victorious over the Antichrist. Our task is to be prepared for Christ’s return and to spread the gospel so that even more people will also be prepared

2 Thessalonians 2:5-12 
Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness

Life Application Bible Study: Who restrains the lawless one? We don’t not know for certain. Three possibilities have been suggested: (1) government and law, which help to curb evil; (2) the ministry and activity of the church and the effects of the gospel; or (3) the Holy Spirit. The Bible is not clear on who this restrainer is, only that he will not restrain forever. But we should not fear this time when the restraint is removed—God is far stronger than the man of lawlessness, and God will save his people

Why will God allow this to happen? To show people and nations their own sinfulness, and to show them by bitter experience the true alternative to the lordship of Christ. People totally without God can act no better than vicious animals. Lawlessness, to a certain extent, is already going on, but the man of lawlessness has not yet been revealed. 

The lawless one will use “power, signs and lying wonders” to deceive and draw a following. Miracles from God can help strengthen our faith and lead people to Christ, but all miracles are not necessarily from God. Christ’s miracles were significant, not just because of their power, but because of their purpose – to help, to heal, and to point us to God. The man of lawlessness will have power to do amazing things, but his power will be from Satan. He will use this power to destroy and to lead people away from God and toward himself. If any so-called religious personality draws attention only to himself or herself, his or her work is not from God. 

This man of lawlessness with his power and miracles will deceive those who have refused to believe God’s truth. God gives people the freedom to turn their backs on him and believe Satan’s lies. If they say no to the truth, they will experience the consequences of their sin. 

Stand Fast
2 Thessalonians 2:13-17
But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, to which He called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or our epistle

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace, comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work

Life Application Bible: Paul consistently taught that salvation begins and ends with God. We can do nothing to be saved on our own merit—we must accept God’s gift of salvation. There is no other way to receive forgiveness from sin. Paul is encouraging the Thessalonian believers by reminding them that they were chosen by God from the beginning. Sanctification is the process of Christian growth through which the Holy Spirit makes us like Christ (Romans 8:29).
