When the stars fall from the sky.

You do want to be easier.

Where did everyone go and are they all right you probably know someone who has disappeared wife husband the child a friend at her wondering what has become of them in that flash all those that had accepted Jesus as their Savior were caught up to meet Jesus in the air.

They traded their earthly bodies for bodies that are perfect imperishable and immortal welcome to understand at times radio with Jim Markel radio for the remnant rock you find all of three ministries today. Janice joined by a popular pastor discuss life on earth during the tribulation. You know someone who will be left behind.

This our challenges you to spread the gospel. As we approach 11:59 on the timeclock here is today's program. The first few minutes after the rapture will be a shock to all and confusion, disaster and chaos will ensue and be in control.

After the initial shock of the rapture wears off and realization sinks in as to what is just happened literally millions of people from all over the world who had previously heard the gospel but refused to accept God's gift of salvation. At that time will likely fall to their knees and ask forgiveness and ask Jesus to be their Savior. More people are likely to be saved immediately after the rapture, then it any other previous time in history. Millions will realize that they should not have procrastinated and that they should have accepted Christ into their hearts when they had the chance, but they let pride and a love for this world. Get in the way millions will likely realize that their crazy Christian friends that they were always talking about the rapture. They weren't so crazy after all.

Social media will be all a buzz like never before frantically texting and tweeting. Are you there and where are you hashtag rapture, thousands of videos will be uploaded instantly. Going viral showing clips of people that suddenly vanished surveillance videos from all across the globe will be posted showing the instant disappearance of millions every bulletin board telephone pole and streetlight pole will be covered with flyers asking have you seen this person if the rapture has happened and you are one of the ones who had heard the gospel but for whatever reason did not accept Christ as your Savior.

At that time than before you watch anymore of this video posit and do it right now.

Do not delay any longer.

The longer you wait, as the tribulation progresses, the harder, if not nearly impossible. It will be later. Welcome to understanding the time to radio all say a little bit more about that video clip. In fact, the entire video as we move into the program today I had the privilege of dealing some only call them prophecy roundtables online hearing on Facebook live you to various websites and more with my guest for this. Our pastor Barry Stegner. Amir certified and I do them couple times a month and this kind of a live platform online has drawn hundreds of thousands and even millions of viewers over time from dozens and dozens of countries and we talk about some of these issues that were going to hit today. Matter fact, we covered the topic very recently that I wanted to bring to my radio audience and expand on that being what might life be like during the tribulation. Let's clarify the church escapes this ordeal. As stated in Revelation 310 and many other places. But every listener to this program today.

I suspect is going to be leaving behind someone they care about who is unsaved is going to go through that tribulation and we hope that this our Spurs all of you on to reach out to that lost person or persons that you care about with greater intensity to keep preaching the gospel to remind them they are running out of time. It is literally a minute to midnight. I wrote any newsletter recently.

It's titled when the stars fall from the sky. Let me summarize it because I want to bring on my guest very Stegner. But in this article, and again I'm just hit bullet points and it I talk about for those who are left behind. Here's some things they are going to face in part can go through the whole list but, in part, they're going to face a time of devastation, a time of dissension at time of disease at time of disaster at time of death, the time of dilution.

The sun turns black, the moon turns blood red.

The stars fall from the sky. There are devastating earthquakes.

There is rampant lawlessness. The restrainer is gone, mountains and islands remove the oceans become blood.

The water becomes poison. Many long to die, but cannot demons are running unchecked during this tribulation a great tribulation. Drugs are bending the minds of most people as they practiced sorcery. The world is such a chaotic mess that billions are going to Paris. Tragically, a satanic Trinity forms a global government and religion.

A ruthless man known as the antichrist or the beast will rule with an iron fist and require a mark in order to survive the world's governments will be reset to global socialism in the great reset being presented by the world economic forum that's just a partial list. We may talk about more items than that the situation becomes so critical that unless Jesus Christ returned in his second coming, no flesh would be saved.

It says in Matthew 24, 22, so we hear a lot today about an end time revival and I believe that happens in the tribulation, probably not before, and if possible he may reference that as well.

I'd like to enter into a discussion now and again, the purpose of this is not to scare anyone. It is to prepare everyone and to encourage listeners who may not know Jesus Christ personally as their Savior to escape the coming trial of the tribulation and for that matter even worse escape the flames of hell will talk about it pastor Barry Stegner is senior pastor of Calvary Chapel Tustin, California. I had the privilege of ministering at two of his prophecy conferences in Southern California in 2019 and 2020 pastor Stegner. Welcome back to the program package and call it a privilege to be review. Now I just referenced a tremendous revival that's going to take place during the tribulation. The hundred 44,000 Jewish witnesses will be winning many many to face the two witnesses and more an angel and it's going to be proclaiming salvation very Stegner.

Why shouldn't a skeptic listening right now just wait until that time and become a believer then what's the hurry. Today is the day of salvation. The Bible tells us that I think would clip you played makes an important point that there's going to be countless videos that are being uploaded, showing the catastrophic events that are the end result of the rupture outside of any of the things are going to happen to fall into the category of the wrath of God is going to have cars that are vacant, of any type of driver claims to just horrific situations over the world. So I think just visually you may not necessarily survive the opening moments of the convention or the moments following the rapture of the church.

Yeah. And I think you made an important point that you now can accept Christ, and know that you have in front of you. The escape from all these things, and yet you refuse him.

What makes you think that you're going to be willing to accept them after the fact and strength when there is no escape and you'll actually die for your faith. There's two good reasons to think your business now.

I give your life to Christ today.

I believe the tribulation is for salvation of the Jewish nation. The simulations for Israel is for the unbelieving world to bring judgment on them. One third of Israel actually does come to faith during that tribulation. It's also called the time of Jacob's trouble. Jeremiah 37 it's called Daniel's 70th week and the first three chapters of Revelation really are to the church here at so intriguing.

Barry Aminah blessings promised everyone who reads and heeds the book of Revelation. I don't see that promise in reading other chapters of the Bible not saying they're less important but for some reason that's a blessing for those who will read this particular book in chapter 4 verse one of Revelation, the church is called to heaven, then she is gone until the end of Revelation.

Many believe of course have already referenced it and please back me up if you don't mind that there is a second chance for salvation during the tribulation again to witness says the angel. The hundred 44,000 a great evangelistic time correct. Oh, absolutely. There's going to be the greatest great awakening in the history of humankind held as we see a multitude according to Revelation chapter 5 that no one could number and they are from every tribe and tongue nation and people who have the seal of God placed upon them because they have been redeemed as the text is actually in verse nine.

You've redeemed us to God by your blood. The blood obviously points to a personal relationship with Christ.

The same means by which everyone must be saved.

So you've got this absolutely incredible number of people saved during the tribulation jam as you alluded to their those who say that if you rejected Christ prior to the wrath of the church you won't accept them after I know. I think people that have heard at least some form or a portion of the gospel that maybe it didn't resonate with them at that time. I think there's going to be a good portion of this multitude of people at so you know what those Christians were right. I do believe himself Lord help my unbelief and forgive my sins there's going to be just an absolutely incredible great awakening during the tribulation. Paul and I hope that encourages listeners who have loved ones that they suspect may be left behind its insect which is not going to respond to the gospel.

I do not believe the average Christian realizes the severity of what those they care about, may face if they are left behind Revelation spells it out tonight into road with some of those bullet points for one thing, few churches are talking about it and I'm going to be playing some clips and I'm gonna play one now and this is taken from a video that we carry. It's produced by prophecy update.

It's called after the rapture left behind. I want to play this little clip and then working to come back and talk about it.

For starters, people are going to try to explain away the rapture with all sorts of wild theories like possibly global warming more UFOs so-called religious leaders are going to come out and say the church is still around because they didn't disappear. Whatever scenario the world uses to explain the rapture.

You can be assured it is a lie we interrupt your regulation jewel programs bring you this breaking news. There are reports coming in from across the globe. This only hundreds of thousands if not millions of people just disappear varnish one second there with that and then suddenly they will gong this is not a joke.

There are repulsive complex plane crashes on massive traffic jams, people everywhere are running around in a panic looking for those that have disappeared.

Thank you. Peace. While we are waiting to hear from the speaker of the house costs and let's check in with Allie in our room Bureau with Marty and he assures us that the Pope here personally into his holiness.

Therefore, it cannot rapture that many religious leaders around the world aiming currently in the light behind meeting with the members of the relevant along with several high-ranking bishops and cardinals an official statement from the expected to be issued shortly possibly even from the Pope himself. Thank you, Allie, will they have these folks consistently the most astounding use. I bolted.

I have not seen anything like this since 9/11 states, you will be right back. Stagner just millions missing on loan would have to be a living nightmare with loved ones missing some will figure it out.

Others will have no clue because how can life go on as normal with millions missing normal will be out the window.

You have been hearing a lot about a new normal lately and one of the interesting part about this is that in the day that we now live the church in Christians and believers are viewed in a negative light in ways that are really unprecedented were being looked at as enemies of the greater good of the events of globalism the equality of all beliefs, then sexual practices dependency really today, the God of this world is equality or egalitarian everybody has to have the same thing. Nobody can be different from one another. Everything has to be a level playing field and for the church to say no, these things are simple. They separate you from God is exactly the opposite of what the globalist mentality is today one of the things I think that Horton to highlight is that the book of Revelation is the most detailed apocalyptic type description that all of Scripture we have several books by saying, Ezekiel, Daniel, have chapters dedicated to the days were talking about, but the book of Revelation predominantly from chapter 6 to 19 is all about the tribulation period. The church is going to be absent from. So why would God want us to know so much about something were not going to experience and I believe that is to create within us a desperation for the loss the perishing, and to embolden us to let them know that there is a promise and Revelation 310, a way of escape. We don't have to go through all these things normal will not exist any longer. In the second half of the tribulation. A particular yes going to be strictly a run for your life right time. They Stagner God is just and people want to know about the children of unbelievers. We know that everyone of all ages perished in Noah's flood, but you feel that children under the age of accountability, whatever that is will be taken in the rapture. No matter what the spiritual status of their parents is now number one that's intriguing.

Number two I agree with you. Number three that adds to the mystery and the panic and the fear if in fact children, particularly unbelieving parents, children suddenly missing wanted to clarify that that the children not of the age of accountability you feel will be taken. I think there's two things to establish one David when he had said with Bathsheba and the child was born and became ill and the Lord told David he was to spare his life over gonna bring that child home cleaning to heaven.

David said when he was told that the child died that he can't come to me, but I will go to help, which implies David well understood that a child in its innocence is going to go to the presence of God even though they made out of consciously been old enough to make a decision to follow Christ, so that establishes the fact that this is something that we can look at as a biblical precedent.

You mentioned you got us just them as art for the innocent Jesus told his own disciples who try to hinder the children from coming to him should not let the children come to me, but effective group were pictures of this is the manner in which you have to come to me in a childlike faith and fashion one. I think there are those who make the argument from prescriptive chapter 7 that because children in the home of a believer sanctified that have nothing to do with the rapture the church. It is nothing to do with going to heaven and have everything to do with when one believer lives in a household with another nonbeliever follow dealing with the issue of divorcing your spouse because they were Christian in the first century shows know your home sanctified. Your children are covered by the believing spouse, so your home is eligible for God's blessings or protections because you are the sole believer and also left on the text.

We can use to say only sanctified children will be taken in the rapture.

Children are innocent by nature and as you said, we don't know the age of accountability. What establishes a thing is different for every child. Definitely there's a point where one could make a rational cognitive decision to follow Jesus, or to reject it. In organizing my school right now you are listening to understanding the times radio and Jan Markel.

I have on the line from Southern California – very Stagner Calvary Chapel Tustin.

Find more cc you can catch Pastor very Stagner on YouTube look him up under the truth about God, the truth about God and playing clips from a new product we carry. It's a DVD for selling it so inexpensively. It's a left behind type product called after the rapture left behind is something you can leave behind reselling it for just $10.06 dollars shipping. It's approximately an hour.

I think it's a good information source as to what just happened at the rapture. Learn more about the ministry of prophecy update and watch their tremendous videos a prophecy that's prophecy and play another clip for let me introduce the clip by saying this, and very Stagner you and I believe there's going to be a gap.

The rapture happens tribulation follows but that could be a gap of weeks to months probably not years because the world will be in chaos, and it will be longing for a leader and longing for somebody to direct everything and solve the chaos world leaders.

Some of them may be missing chaos will rain so there's going to be a gap we don't know quite how long is this little clip here and come back and talk about it after the rapture the antichrist will soon be revealed. Second Thessalonians 2539.

In Revelation 6 to however no Scripture states that he will confirm the seven year covenant immediately. Daniel 927. In fact, he will not dominate until the 3 1/2 year midpoint of the tribulation. Revelation 13 five. His rise to power will take time, perhaps several years Daniel 823 to 25 Daniel chapter 7 lays out the sequence of the world's final kingdom before Christ returns. The fourth kingdom will initially emerge as a global government that shall devour the whole earth.

Verse 23 then we are told that there will be 10 kings who shall arise from this kingdom. Verse 24 they will be followed by the antichrist and another shall rise after them, he shall be different from the first ones, and shall subdue three kings compared this passage with Revelation 13 and 17. Today the world is rapidly heading toward a global government and economic system.

However, believers are hindering the emergence of a global government after the rapture, when all believers have been removed and chaos ensues. A global Marshall plan shall be implemented. Of course, the rise of a 10 region global government followed by the rise of the Antichrist will require time. Clearly, the antichrist will not dominate or enforce a piece covenant until after the 10 region worldwide system is firmly established. All of this will take time.

The woman of Revelation 17 rides the beast into power. She is one holding the reins at the start of this. Therefore, it is improbable that the antichrist will dominate and confirm a covenant with Israel and the world immediately after the rapture, the harlots Babylonian, like religious system will come in Christ's name, not the Antichrist's name. She will present herself as Queen of the true church, but she will be a seductive counterfeit clearly the organizing of her global religious system will require time to set up very Stagner the official start of the tribulation again would be the signing of a covenant between the antichrist and Israel.

That's Daniel 927 what you think, weeks, months. I think there's two things to consider one.

There are two hindrances to globalism and the rise of a single world ruler and religion that one is Christianity and the other is as long the rapture will take care of the Christian problem, so to speak to the rise of this man to power and the second issue is the Ezekiel 38 and 39 war scenario the nations that are represented there represent less than 5% of the total population of Muslims around the world, but they represent some 90 some odd percent of radical gifts that were always seeing in the news. Once we see the Ezekiel war scenario played out and we see God's hand deal with these invading nations the way he's going to and with the earthquake in the hail stones of fire mingled with blood. This cataclysmic type event that takes place that destroys radical Islam can have a world that's a little more ready to see a couple build to listen to a single world leader to lay down their ideologies to a degree that they would be more acceptance of a single system that allows people operate is very possible that the Ezekiel war starts before the rapture and the rapture happens during the battle and then the final event happen during the tribulation because this description we see in Ezekiel 38, 39, of how the battle comes to an end is specific to the events that take place in like this during the tribulation. The battle can start before rapture happened in the middle or prior to, and in the finality of the battle that shakes the world is when God deals directly with this particular meeting set up forces to take time. The point is, there is a gap and we don't know how long it is.

I can imagine the chaos during that gap. Missing people missing world leaders if there believers a world leader will be gone as well. I just want to talk here.

More specifically about the first half and then when you get the second half of the tribulation. That's worth doing this not to be sensational not to be fear mongers, but to give you a greater burden to win your lost loved ones, friends, neighbors working associates before they have to endure some of that line if I gave you as an intro into the program the time of devastation, dissension, disease, disasters, death, delusion, and much much more.

If someone can avoid that with putting their faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. They will go with the rest of the church in the rapture before all of this breaks out, but the first half of the tribulation very many say it will not be all that bad, that there will be even a season of peace perhaps brought on by the antichrist. After all, he's passing himself off as a savior and he hasn't revealed the worst of him in the first half.

They hundred and 44,000 Jewish evangelists begin evangelizing the world. In the absence of the church. The first half and maybe not that bad, except we have the terrible seals of Revelation beginning in chapter 6, and they will be followed by even worse judgments called trumpet judgments, old judgments, little later that be the second half. Each of these judgments getting more severe, more grievous, but the seals are part of the first half of the tribulation leads most of the seals for which those saying the church will go through the first half because it won't be all that bad, not true because the seals are going to be just horrific and they are partly in the first half absolutely look at when the Lamb opened the first of the field you have man who goes on a white horse with minimum visually identifies Jesus is not Jesus because Percival were told would be opening of the second field, the one who's on that horse. The fiery red horse takes peace from the earth would you please nobody can take it from you, so this is obviously not Jesus Christ and his return. We see this particular character right out with a bowl which is symbolic of a covenant like the rainbow God's promise not to flood the earth again in total destruction really goes out conquering and to conquer. So this is the introduction of the antichrist, and then immediately without any indication in the Bible does at times take a leap forward in time without any mention or indication that history will prove it to be so, but at this point in time is nothing that says that these events are going to continue in the sequence that there listed in without any particular spacing necessary and we have to remember that the world is to be an emotional mess and all of these things are going to put the world interstate that makes them vulnerable to what comes within the second and third especially as we see greed and hunger for people killing one another.

It's not a time even though there is a season of peace. I think just the piece is based more on shock than anything else.

But the mass disappearance of people.

This piece is going to be taken away at the writer of the second horse, fiery red horse goes out. He's given a great sword. It's just hard to read anything positive into these events, saying that the church would go through these things is completely inconsistent with other passages of Scripture remind us we are have an appointment with these things is something reserved as exclusive to the 70th week of Daniel to the final discipline of the Jews to bring 1/3 of them to faith in Christ. Is it look upon the one whom they pierced and mourn for him and also to judge or Christ rejecting world.

So if this is specific to fulfilling the wrath of God. The judgment of God. When a world with the church be present in such a time. If inconsistent seal number three against Sam and the black horse people have to work all day to be able to pay for a loaf of bread. Revelation 6 seal number four the pale horse the fourth of the earth killed by sword salmon playing seal number five, those martyred for their faith.

God gives each a white robe and avenges the martyrs seal number six tremendous earthquake astronomical phenomenon. Blood moon stars fall from the sky, mountains and islands move, men hide in caves now are probably into the second half of the tribulation and they say hide us from the wrath of the Lamb in an amazingly, most of them will not repent and the hundred and 44,000 Jewish witnesses are protected again not presenting this hour to scare people particular not to scare believers as pastor Barry Stagner has said we are absent from all of this horrible mass but for those who are just unwilling to make that commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ.

There's more to come. I'm going talk about it in part two of my programming here. There's more to come. Because towards the end of the tribulation gets worse. If it's possible, gets much worse.

Remember, all programming is posted to a website both its audio and video format. This was all of three go to our radio category. There are Jan Markel and pastor Barry Stagner wrap up, why didn't he take me if you are watching this video, after the rapture. You need to realize that you've been left behind at this time.

You may be feeling rejected by God, you might be saying to yourself why didn't he take me or I don't understand. I let a good life. The problem isn't that God rejected you. The problem is that you rejected him by not committing your life to Jesus and by declining to follow him you would left him with no choice but to leave you behind. Not everyone who says to me Lord Lord will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my father who is in heaven will enter.

Matthew 721 for whoever does the will of my father who is in heaven. He is my brother and sister and mother. Matthew 1250 come now and let us reason together, says the Lord.

Though your sins are as scarlet, they will be as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, they will be like wool.

Isaiah 118 why it is happened believers in Jesus were taken out of this world to spare them from the great wrath that is just begun to befall the planet much more than having now been justified by his blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through him. Romans 59 and to wait for his son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, that is Jesus, who rescues us from the wrath to come. First Thessalonians 110 for God is not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. First Thessalonians 59 Jesus return for all his true believers was just a prelude to his spinal second coming. The second phase of Jesus return is to set up his kingdom on earth. Jesus kingdom is why this whole thing is happening. You see, we come to the end of one age and will soon be beginning the age of Jesus glorious reign right here on earth but first, God must deal with rebellion sin before setting up his kingdom, God's going to use this intermediate time.

You now live and to pour out his wrath on mankind for its continued refusal to accept his Lordship the time you live in now is called the tribulation and playing some clips from a new product were caring produced by prophecy update after the rapture left behind. It is designed for, well, you can leave it behind. You can leave it in a prominent place where an unbelieving loved one might see it and hopefully they will watch it and understand what happened what happened to you and what they need to do now that they have been left behind and they are in the beginning stages of the unbelievable unspeakable tribulation and the great tribulation. You can watch these clips where playing clips. We play for every program.

If you access the video version of our programming and our website under radio on his channel TV or on our YouTube channel.

You'll remember, much more. If you view the video version of the program. Learn more about prophecy update prophecy in part one we went over some of the early horrific stages of the tribulation. The seals that's followed the trumpet judgments in full and final judgments.

In looking at talk little bit more about that.

Not to necessarily scare though I would have to admit they are a bit terrifying but not to the believer but to spur people on to be sharing their faith like never before. Folks were at 11:59. If you don't believe that. I don't know what you can do other than look at some of the headlines that are happening on a daily basis. That's not the purpose of this hour, because refocusing on this event known as the tribulation and the great tribulation. By the way that product find it in my online store all of tree olive tree get on my various newsletter E newsletter print newsletter you'll find it in there. Call my office will get one out to you very promptly again were just offering it for $10.06 dollars shipping for that you get a wonderful little left behind product pastor Barry Stagner and he is my guest for the hour Calvary Chapel Tustin, California. He has some wonderful prophecy conferences that he's had for years. I was privileged to be at two of them. I want to go back to where I left off in part one of my program and I did indicate that as a part of the seals during the tribulation. It would be in part two of the tribulation, the great tribulation that men are going to retreat to caves and plead hide us from the wrath of the Lamb meeting, the Lamb of God, and they will not repent. This says something about the stubbornness and the hardness of the heart. And yet at the same time. This tremendous revival going on during this tribulation, so some hearts are ready to repent and yet some are hardened and simply will not repent. Can they run into the caves and they curse God and die. This just shocks me that at this point in time, they might not say God forgive me and I'm turning my life over to you. It's not too late. Interesting gender consider that they know full well that they are under the wrath of God is a look to the creation instead of the creator and call up the rocks of the mountains to hide them from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the route of the Lamb. I think that's an important phrase, we have this mentality that there's Old Testament on the New Testament God. But it's Jesus who, according to the gospel of John. He said that the father had committed all judgment unto him, it's Jesus who is going to bring all of this to its final conclusion. Revelation chapter 19 is he that has a robe dipped in blood, blood spattered robe and defeat his enemies and he is pouring out his wrath on this world that has rejected him and I think because the big question that we all want to know but can't know and that is when no man knows the day or the hour. We also need to recognize that we are seeing things that are going to reach their fulfillment during the tribulation. And because we know that the rapture of the church will happen. Part of the tribulation. That unknown day in our house to be within close proximity were soon going to be caught up in the air meet the Lord forever be with him. If we look at this and examine society today apparel that was second Timothy chapter 3 were perilous times are described.

We feel these human character flaws that lead to the place of an outright rejection of God, anything he does is going to be wrong. I like that the clips why wasn't I think I'm a good moral person that really is indicative of a lot of the thinking today because our comparison is one another. That's what the standard by which we measure ourselves when it pertains to getting in there accessing heaven or defining us as sinners.

The moral standard we measure.

So for just as God's word. Therefore, we are all sinners, we have all fallen short of his glory, and therefore we do all need a Savior, but if were close to the rapture and were close of the tribulation and we would expect to see people within a difference for human life agreed that willing to take this Robin Hood approach, we see happening in our government today take from the rich give to the poor. This whole mentality that I have a right to things I didn't work for in all of these things are elements that are herpetic in nature.

So I sent Paul talking to Timothy about the perilous times have strong haughty traders, lovers of self maters of God having a form of godliness that were formed there in second Timothy 35 should report more forces which means to form out of something that previously existed in other words, is going to be something that justifies man's hunger for religion, even in the midst of all these dark and ugly human characteristics are presented there that would cause someone to get to the state where they know God judging the world but it will continue in hatred of God rather than repentance of their own sin and turning to God during the tribulation, just an unbelievable time that underscores what we said earlier, there's nothing to wait for come to Jesus today and will forgive your sanity turns in the way who come to him by faith in his name and shut blood funds still on the seals and the seventh seal. Again, these are judgments that are poured out on the Red Sox church is gone that God is judging the wickedness of the earth.

The seventh seal is so horrific. This is intriguing that the silence in heaven for 1/2 an hour. Because the judgment is so severe very Stagner does this mean that in heaven we know all of this is going on if suddenly were silent for 1/2 an hour. Help me understand this. Yeah, it's kind of funny. There's been books written about what happened during appointments with the seven thunders uttered.

The drama pulled off the right we don't really know this because what I think is very possible that this gives us an indication that we reach the midpoint of the tribulation because one of the things that happens during the second half is at the blowing of the seventh trumpet were old seven bowls are going to be released in the seven seals the seventh seal opens the seven trumpets of the seven trumpets.

The seventh trumpet opens the bowls of God's wrath report on the earth, but all seven of the bowls because of nothing beyond that are God's wrath were told for in them the fullness of the wrath of God is made complete. This could be an indication that there's a pause in heaven because of the gravity came about to come on the earth is Mark Hitchcock talking about our topic the titillation. As you understand it is a seven year. According to biblical truth. You see a divided and most do see the bond in the two segments is the first half different than the second half is one of things always like to point out to his a lot of people think the rapture starts the seven year tribulation.

The seven year tribulation starts. Daniel 927 tells us when the Antichrist makes a treaty with Israel. So you're the rapture could happen today in the tribulation could start next week, next month maybe a year or two from the could be a gap of time, though, allow for some further preparation. At some point in time is Antichrist figures going to come on the scene and make a treaty, the Bible says with Israel nothing to trigger this seven year period of time, but is divided in Daniel 927 into two halves. There's a first half in the second half to it. The first half of that period of time. Israel's going to enjoy peace. I think at the beginning of the tribulation, there's gonna be a time of worldwide peace. It says in Thessalonians will mentor saying peace and safety, then sudden destruction is gonna come on them so the world is going to finally get its desire to have some peace and prosperity bought at the midpoint of the tribulation.

There's really some events that happen. The trigger, the antichrist and is going to take the world over. And so that second half of the tribulation.

The last three and half years is going to dominate the world and rule the world and it's gonna be a reign of terror was going to come early peace on the earth. So the first half is going to be Antichrist forming the coalition are made the coalition with other nations around the world and a peace treaty assigned there. So there's peace and we got the global currency going on with Mark of the beast so there's prosperity and then will move into the second half.

Is there any to point is at the signing of the peace treaty. How far along is its is it maybe 33 and half years after the signing of the peace treaty with you'll see the peace and there's some Kumbaya. The world and then there's a to point in the last half is Antichrist basically breaking the deal he does yell says at the midpoint of the covenant of the seven year.

He breaks the treaty with Israel chocolate.

One of the greatest double crosses of all time, then what is going to do near the mask is going to come off. At that point in time as you begin to persecute the Jewish people because obviously God is made promises to them. Satan wants to get rid of them right and wipe them out is going to dominate the world at that point in time. So this world is going to wear this great apostasy. The Bible calls it a great falling away when this one man is gonna be worshiped as God.

You're listening to understand the times radio and Jim Markel spending the hour upon the tribulation the great tribulation, hoping to spur all the feline to greater witnessing and the fact that we are 11:59. I believe talking for the hour with pastor very Stagner Calvary Chapel Tustin California CC very Stagner the great doublecross. Mark is so right there.

The Bible doesn't call it the great doublecross.

The Bible calls it the abomination of desolation. Why didn't you talk to us about what is the abomination of desolation in the temple. We do know that there's going to be at third temple that is built, it is not a biblically sanctioned temple but is the temple that is built out of human desire for the peace and security and stability of the world is going to come on the heels I believe of the removal of radical Islam and the removal of the church in a world attitude of can we all get along for peace and safety, and then were going to see this antichrist moving through the different phases of his covenant that he establishes with the nation of Israel and moving toward new geopolitical format for the whole of the world, assigning certain segments of the world to his cronies and then we see a breakdown in that system there.

In Revelation 17 and 18 as well in the Daniel chapter 7 and eight. What if we look at what were seeing happening in the world today in the movement toward this globalist mentality, the world is beginning to focus upon smaller and smaller groups of people to lead us and direct us and ultimately this is going to encourage this man of sin, son of perdition, the lawless one, all the other descriptions associate with antichrist to make the declaration from the rebuilt company.

He allows to be rebuilt through his diplomatic efforts is going to sit in the most holy place reserved exclusively for the ark of the covenant, which represents God's physical presence on the earth to the Jews. He's going to make a declaration that he is God in the whole world is going to go after him and I think what Dr. Hitchcock said is so important because they are worshiping him in Revelation 13 it says that he is given his power by the Dragon and the Dragon is deftly Satan, and it also says and they worship the Dragon gave power to the beast.

The predominant religion during the tribulation.

As can be.

Satan worship, even though the mask is the worship of this one who receive the deadly wound was healed.

Supposedly had a false resurrection mocking that which Jesus did, which is a true resurrection and it says in Revelation 1316, both great and small, rich and poor, free and slave receive a mark on the right hand of the four heads and know what to buy or sell who does not have the mark of the name of the beast of the number of his name and were told that this is an act of worship.

Worship is an interesting word. The word actually means to lick the hand like a dog would lick their masters and figuratively it means to prostrated.

This is unashamed worship of Satan to prostrate and submit yourself before Satan by the worship of his beef gin.

If you look at the things that are going on in our culture today. If you look at people and their glazed over our positions on matters that have long been clear and well understood by all of humanity.

Even without the scientific data that we have today. Take life in the womb generation to generation for millennia. The people of known that a woman is carrying a baby and all the sudden it's just a blob of tissue can be discarded as so it's just a piece of garbage. This speaks of that mentality that they're open to worship, to prostrate themselves before and submit to even the most satanic of characters and having the antichrist, the wrath of God is going to intensify and that's the case within the tribulation folks it's outlined in the book of Revelation. Some more things are going to happen.

The latter part of the tribulation the fourth of the earth's population. Billions are can be perishing.

The third of the sea. Now becomes blunt the stars fall from the sky and via something called wormwood the great star falls from the heavens 1/3 of the water becomes bitter. 1/3 of the sun is darkened. This is climate change. Folks, this is the green new deal, but it's during the tribulation. I hope AOC sorry gets her way because this is when climate really really changes demonic locusts plaguing the people for months. People will not cry out for God's grace. They just would not repent, we reference that earlier than get massive sorcery with pharmacopeia going on use of drugs. We talked about that last week. Eventually those two witnesses are killed. All I'm saying is going down a list of just some of the things that are going to be transpiring during this terrible time known as tribulation of the great tribulation. Point being, anyone listening who does not know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. You want to wait around and think, well, make this decision. During this time it'll be so bad that you might not have the opportunity or is tested very Stagner said in part one, you may perish in the opening minutes.

Point is, today's the day of salvation. Very Stagner for Israel. Jeremiah 30 verse seven says alas for that day is great. There is none like it is a time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it again. The tribulation is called the time of Jacob's trouble. Folks the church is not Jacob. Jacob is Israel but he shall be saved out of that one third of the Jews are saved literally spiritually saved out of the tribulation.

Two thirds perish and you and I and others who hold to this or criticized but were taking that out of the Bible.

The one third see him whom they pierced. They mourn they recognize in fact, it is Jesus who they didn't appear simple thousand years ago.

Talk to me about that. As Paul wrote in Romans all Israel is going to be saved and obviously is Jesus is dealing in John chapter 3 with the teacher of Israel Nicodemus.

He was telling him he had to be born again.

So this gives us an opportunity to talk about dual covenant theology and that Israel is going to be saved through obedience to the law of services and rituals which have no capacity to save anyone when it was in force. Course now is Jesus deals with the issue of how to access heaven. She states specifically that you must be born again, please believing Jews that are supernaturally protected, which is a precedent to set all the way back when Egypt was being plagued with the 10 plagues.

They were protected by blood from the death angel passing over the same is going to be true of the second death. Just like the Christian just like the church they're going to be protected by the blood of Jesus.

He is going to in his foreknowledge supernaturally protect believing Jews during the tribulation. And as you said two thirds of the Jews are going to be as Zechariah chapter 12 to 14 covers in great detail the tribulation. They want to be cut off at the Hebrews up or kill. So the surviving Jews are going to be those who will look upon the one whom they pierced mourn for him as one mourns for an only son. Grieve the decision of their ancestors to reject side of Israel, the man, the thing reported in Isaiah chapter 53, was wounded for their transgressions, bruised for our iniquities defining going to realize that this Jesus Yeshua was to call him was indeed her Messiah. Those who look upon him just like us who have his blood cover are sent are going to be safe. This will bring about the final discipline of God. We've gone through the Diaspora. The scattering amongst the nations for the rejection of their Messiah. They been brought back into the land as promised in Ezekiel 36, seven. Now the land is flourishing just one of the most fascinating things is that we have in the Ezekiel 38, 39 war scenario the Arab people seeking to make peace with Israel are coming to their defense. When these other nations. Russia, Turkey, Iran, Libya and Sudan invade Israel from the north, Sheba and deed, and represented by the Arab Gulf Peninsula area and states are going to protest this in the answering. Isn't it interesting that we see today. Isaac and Ishmael making amends her overtures toward one another to reconcile the Arabs. I think we have to remember there is makeup just a small portion of Muslims in Indonesia's largest country in the world some 300 million portion is not the majority portion by any stretch but here you've got these Arab nations Saudi Arabia leading the charge. All this movement toward something that can reach its ultimate fulfillment during the tribulation period, which will ultimately lead to the salvation of all believing Jews. I am reading an email here from Chrissy's in Bogotá Columbia and I think very Stagner one of the frequent emails I get.

You get many in our line of ministry receive his people would love to talk about the issues as it concerns the end of days, and there met with all sorts of negative response by Chris in Bogotá and he gave me permission to read this. He says I discovered all of you at the beginning of the year and my life changed you on their stuff.

I passed a very Stagner became my mentors. I've learned so much about the topic itself, my beloved Israel and 11 identify with your understanding on apostasy and Chris says I use so much of the material of all of you in my teachings that bless you all and can't imagine what you all mean to us here in Columbia. He says everybody is just hypnotized here waiting for their hope that he says. The hope is in the new Pres. Biden or in the vaccine that people are getting and then everything will be all right again and then he says we are just not welcome with our apocalyptic words. He concludes knowing you are out there is so comforting. That's all I know for now and I hope you get this and understand how important you and your ministry have been for my life and some others of us around here in Bogotá Columbia point of reading that very Stagner is there is a remnant of believers that believe as you and I do and they feel very alone and they try to talk about the issues that we presented in this hour, and some of the issues and indeed sobering and they could be seen as depressing and it's Chris in Bogotá Columbia says he tries to talk about some of these things are called apocalyptic words that he's presenting he's shunned and shut down and look things are going back to normal. Don't you know that and there's a new president in America were going to have normal life again maybe not very maybe not. No, I don't think so.

We have to remember the president is been signing executive orders at a record pace and many of them are pointing to things that are a part and parcel of why God is pouring out his wrath on the earth to equate biological male to a female simply because they choose to express himself in that manner. At that point in time there free to change your mind later in demanding the rest of the world except that flies in the face of God goes all the way back to the creation narrative. When God said he is made to genders, male and female. We are moving toward the acceptance of delusion. Yes learned the rejection of the love of truth, and therefore God is going to send strong delusion because they would not receive the love of the truth but rather they have their own desires that they want to follow in their own passions, lust, and that's really what the world is being driven by now we are not in a good place people.

I think in looking at this past election a particular United States. The US is the greatest superpower in the world is no question about that or also the most generous country in the history of the world. The more for other countries in any country is ever done. There's a certain amount of desire that the US prosper because it's beneficial for the whole world. Yes, it interesting that we see this very scenario played out at the destruction of Babylon in Revelation chapter 17 and 18 were were told about the discussion about the one world religion. The woman running the beast at all about but the interesting factor about that is that the main concern. Babylon is destroyed and the merchants of the earth sent and more in saying who can of our stuff, and that says a lot about the mentality of the world at that time and I believe we are at that stage. Even now Logix out the window, biology, chemistry, et al. ALPA went out the window just for the sake of creating our own personal delusional reality that anybody can be anything they want everybody else has to accepted the main thing is that we all have enough and more than we need the real morning factor that can happen during the tribulation isn't the loss of life at the destruction of Babylon, but rather by our stuff and keep us rich. You can learn more and communicate was tested very you can catch pass very Stagner on YouTube look them up under the truth about God, the truth about God again.

I'm referring to the video we play clips out that we now carry after the rapture left behind, be a wonderful tool to leave behind checking out all of tree views down to work my online store my newsletters, call my office.

I'm going out of the program. Thank you very Stagner. So much for joining me for the hour. I'm actually reading from very Stagner's blog gets to ¶ going out of the program with it. Perhaps today is the day the Lord comes for his people. Perhaps today is the last day before things begin to spiral toward the end that Scripture warns is coming every God honoring Christian's things here. She hopes to do for the Lord.

Someday when life settles down when the job is so demanding, or when some other legitimate concern that demands attention is resolved, but Peter tells us we must always be mindful that time is a limited commodity whether globally or personally. Time is running out each day is the best day to live with urgent expectancy as though the last witnessing opportunity with someone you know is before you.

The day that you are now living is the best day to deal with some spots and wrinkles in your own life one day. Someday it will be that day. Perhaps today I want to thank you for listening folks and we will talk to you next week we will give friendly all of tree views for cola simple time.
