Happy Shavuot! Feast of Weeks! Pentecost!




Happy Birthday to the Church of Jesus!

When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts 2:1-4

Although there is some dispute on when Pentecost occurs this year, the Hebrew calendar marks it down as May 29th and 30th, the Gregorian calendar as May 31st, and other calendars based on the stars as June 6-7.

Pentecost was not only the birth of the Church, but also the timing when God gave Moses the 10 commandments and confirmed a marriage covenant with Israel. I have written a few posts on Pentecost in the past and it's connection to a possible rapture



Also, this post from UNSEALED is very informative on Pentecost and what it means, past, present and future. I encourage you to study this wonderful holiday!

Great timeline of a possible 2020 Rapture!

I don't share many videos because I don't trust the sources. In this case, I watched the entire thing and this man seems to have really done his homework and to be a follower of Jesus. I couldn't find anything he said that wasn't Biblical. He is NOT setting a date, but he has tons of evidence for a potential rapture this year. At the end, he says that all this is only his opinion based on research and the timing is the Lord's!  But I thought it was very encouraging and enlightening and I learned things too!  I hope you enjoy it!

Why do you keep talking about the rapture, MaryLu?  None of us know when it will happen. True! I talk about it because the Lord has asked me to, because He wants me to get the word out so people will get serious about Him and their walk with Him AND so we can all help save those who don't know Him.  If you knew the final boarding call was only months away, wouldn't you be more diligent to tell your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors about Jesus?

The True Church will not suffer the Tribulation!


Several people have come to me in fear, wondering if the church in any way will have to suffer through the Tribulation. I understand their fear. Based on what is currently going on in the world, it looks like we may be entering the Tribulation soon.  Regardless of how soon it is, I wanted to reinforce what I believe I am seeing in Scripture--that true followers of Jesus will in no way be here during the 7 year Tribulation. I'm not a preacher, pastor, prophet or Bible teacher. I am a woman who loves Jesus and who has read through the Bible multiple times in search of truth, who has asked God to reveal things to me, and who has an intense interest in end times. I have read many books on the subject too and studied alternative views as well. In fact, I used to believe in a POST-Tribulation rapture! 

I have written about this topic before, so I'm linking to 2 posts of mine that I believe prove a Pre-tribulation rapture from a Biblical viewpoint.  I'll list here some of my points from these posts, but if you're concerned about it, I urge you to read thought them yourself.

  1. The Apostle Paul's own words in 2 Thessalonians 2, and 1 Thessalonians 4 (see my posts below)
  2. Ancient Jewish wedding traditions which require a 7 day honeymoon
  3. Jacob's trouble or Daniel's 70th week is a time God turns His attention from the Gentiles back to the Jews in Daniel 9:24-27  (A Biblical week is 7 years)
  4. Jesus wouldn't beat up and nearly destroy His Bride before the wedding
  5. The church is not appointed to wrath. 

"Being now justified by His blood, we shall be 'SAVED FROM' THE WRATH through Him." Romans 5:9


"Wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, Jesus, which 'DELIVERS US' FROM THE WRATH to come."1 Thessalonians 1:10


"God has NOT APPOINTED US TO WRATH, but to obtain 'salvation by our Lord' Jesus Christ."1 Thessalonians 5:9

"Because you have kept the word of My patience, I ALSO WILL 'KEEP YOU FROM' THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION which shall come upon all the world.."  Revelation 3:10


 I go into more depth with these topics in my posts below

Why I believe in a Pre-Trib Rapture

Pre-Trib, Mid-Trib, Post-Trib?

Let me add a few things that may bring you comfort. Here is a very important passage from Jesus about the rapture and the end of time.

But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. Matt 24:36-43 

The Days of Noah is of particular interest here because Noah was taken before the flood, before the wrath of God was poured out on the earth. We can also include Lot and his family escaping from Sodom before God's wrath, and Rahab and her household escaping before Jericho was destroyed. All throughout Scripture, God rescues the righteous before destruction. 

Anyway, the part I wanted to point out is that two men will be in the field and two women grinding at the mill.  Now I ask you this question. what will the world be like at the end of the tribulation? If you've ever read Revelation, you will have some idea. It will be nearly completely destroyed with meteors, asteroids, extreme heat, plagues, famines, war, persecution, most of the green grass and trees are burnt up, the sea and rivers are polluted. So, I'm thinking that people will not be farming in fields or grinding at mills. In other words, life won't be going along normally, fields won't be planted and harvested. In Jesus's own words,

For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened. Matthew 24:21-22 

In other words, if He doesn't come back (the 2nd coming) when He does, no one would be alive. That sounds pretty bad to me! I don't think people will be farming.

Another thing about the "Days of Noah" is

Life was gong along normally. People were "eating, drinking, marrying and given in marriage" right before the flood. Therefore, the rapture cannot occur at the end, or even the middle of the Tribulation, because people will NOT be living their normal lives as if nothing was happening. Again, read Revelation. The world will be in chaos.  People are going to know something is up, something is going on, disasters are coming. 

But what about all the Tribulation Saints spoken of in Revelation? Aren't those Christians being murdered in the Tribulation? Yes! Many many people will come to know Jesus during the Tribulation! Many of these will be left-behind believers who thought they were saved but weren't. Others will be our friends and loved ones who read our Left-behind letters. And still others will be people who will wake up to what's happening and read their Bibles. 

Many Post-Trib rapture people will point to this verse, which clearly describes the 2nd coming of Jesus when He arrives on Earth at the end of the Tribulation

 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Matthew 24:30-32 

They argue that Jesus here is gathering all the saints from earth as He is coming down. But pay close attention to the words. Where does He gather His elect from? The four winds of the earth AND from one end of heaven to the other!  Which means He is gathering anyone who is His and still left on earth AND those of us who have been raptured before this and are in heaven. 

I hope I've convinced you that the church will be taken out of this world BEFORE the Tribulation starts. At least that's how I see it in Scripture. Could I be wrong? Possibly. But I urge you to take these Scriptures to the Lord and ask Him. He will tell you.  

Again, if you're a mid or post tribber, I am not trying to cause dissension or arguments.  I respect everyone's right to their own interpretation, and it certainly is not an issue that determines salvation. I mean no offense to anyone. My intent is purely to reassure and comfort God's people that we will be rescued before the bad stuff hits, and that includes the Antichrist and the Mark of the Beast. So, be comforted by that!

The Vaccine Train is Coming to a Station near you!


First of all, I want to reassure my fellow followers of Jesus that you will NOT be forced to take the Mark of the Beast. Indeed, they may force you to take this vaccine at some point, but in all truth, I don't believe we will even be here for that!  Hence, I'm not trying to scare anyone here. If you know Jesus, you will rescued BEFORE the Antichrist takes over and issues orders for the Mark to be enforced. I intend to prove that to you in my upcoming Monday post. 

The purpose of this post is to give information I have learned about the upcoming vaccine, both to educate you and warn you. I believe this vaccine will be a precursor for the Mark of the Beast. I do not believe the first wave of this vaccine is the Mark, nor do I believe it will be forced on you. From what I've read and discerned, it will be offered to all at first, and then slowly but surely, they will make laws that will say only if you are vaccinated can you travel, go to sporting or entertainment events, enter certain stores, restaurants, cafes, or gyms, etc. This enforcement will grow stronger and stronger and more and more restrictive. They will give you some sort of card at first that says you are vaccinated, or perhaps they will indeed start off with some sort of electronic tag or chip inserted with the vaccine. Even so, this is not the Mark. Not yet! So if you end up having to take the vaccine, don't worry. You will not be dammed to hell. 

Later on, however, after the rapture of true believers, I believe there will be more waves of this virus, deadlier and more contagious. (Or so they will tell us). Then they will most likely make this vaccine mandatory. Those who refuse will either be confined to their homes or taken to some other place where they can be quarantined. Within this particular vaccine, there will mostly be some sort of computer chip or quantum dot technology by which they will be able to track your every move as well as monitor your bio statistics. They will say this is for your own good because the chip will detect the minute you get sick and send the information to your doctor who will alert you to come in for a check up.  Many many people will think this is a great idea. 

This is still not the Mark of the Beast. If you are still here (and I pray to God you're not) you will know exactly when the Antichrist enforces the Mark. You will be given a direct choice to submit to him (or his government) as the supreme leader or even a sort of god and told to worship him AND reject Jesus and the God of the Bible. The choice will be clear. You will know what you are doing. So, please don't worry that you will be tricked into taking the Mark of the Beast. 

One thing I just heard from a reliable pastor is that they will most likely be telling people that the Mark (chip or quantum dot) will enable a person to live a long (perhaps even 1000 years) life completely healthy and strong and that it will even give them super human powers to use telepathy, etc. and enhance their brain functions. This will be a huge lure for people to take it. Especially when the alternative means you can't travel, buy, or sell and you will be hunted down and killed. The Mark will contain either some sort of tech that will make you a human-machine hybrid or it will contain Nephilim DNA that will change you from a human into part fallen angel. Either way you won't be human anymore, which is why you will not be able to be saved. Jesus only died for humans.

Just a warning about the vaccine... any vaccine these days. I've heard many bad things about what they may intend to put in it, such as aborted baby tissue, weird DNA, Genetic modification particles that will change your DNA, a stronger version of the virus that will make you sick, things that may lower your immune system, etc. Whether this is true or not, all we need to do is look to the people creating it and pushing it on us. Are they good people? What is their track record with vaccines?  What is their end goal?  I can answer those questions as they pertain to Bill Gates. He has killed thousands of kids worldwide with his vaccines. His wife wears an upside down cross. His end game is depopulation and he's not shy about it. His father was high up the food chain at Planned Parenthood. Enough said. 

If you end up being forced to take the vaccine, pray against any harmful effects in the name of Jesus and I believe He will protect you. However if you are given the choice, well, I'll let you decide. I will refuse to take it. 

Below I'm listing some articles that prove some of what I've said. I've tried to find reliable sources and vet these as best I could with the time I have.  Again, I'm not trying to scare anyone. Maybe this information will be for those left behind. I don't know. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


 President Trump says he will mobilize the military to distribute what he hopes will be 200 million dozes by the end of this year.

Huh?  Why do we need the military? This statement should make the hair on every citizen's neck stand straight up. Why not just deliver the vaccine to hospitals and doctors? Or better yet, have a center set up in every city for people to come and get the vaccine. Why the military? The military should NEVER be deployed on US soil. I'm starting to get very suspicious of Trump.


 The Department of Defense is purchasing 500 million Apijet syringes to inject everyone in America with the Covid-19 Vaccine. The vaccine will come with an optional RFID tag which enables healthcare workers to track you.

Please read This Article for proof. The only reason they need this many is because eventually they will make this mandatory.

Bill gates wants to depopulate the world. 

Bill Gates admits that 700,000 people will be harmed and possibly die from the Covid-19 vaccine

Melinda Gates wears an upside down Cross.  (Please read.)

An enzyme called Luciferase is what makes Bill Gates Vaccine work. coincidence?

Contact Tracing -  This is already being put in place here in the US. Basically, this is a way to keep track of everyone who is COVID-19 positive and to find everyone they have been in contact with and alert them and test and then recommend quarantine. Basically it's a way to keep track of everyone exposed to COVID-19. I'm trying to stick to facts here, but I have heard from reliable sources that these Tracers will have the power to force quarantine on people by removing them from their homes. But I suppose time will tell. How do they intend to keep track of all these people? Digitally, of course.
Here's the CDC website if you want to dive deeper.


At least 44 States are currently hiring Contact Tracers
ACLU warns that contact tracing encroaches on civil liberties.

This makes me very nervous. I don't want anyone tracking me in any way, shape, or form. I do believe that this goes much deeper than they are saying.

Again, not trying to scare. Just trying to prove that I'm not some conspiracy nut!  Some people don't want to hear the truth and they lash out. I get it. Honestly, this stuff really disturbs me too. I wish I could go back to my life when it was full of lollypops and sunshine, but I can't. We are living in the moments before the return of Jesus. We have been placed here for such a time as this. Ignore it, pretend it's not happening, that's fine. But as for me, my goal, my purpose from the Lord is to warn and wake up the church and try and save as many lost souls as I can. 

Blessings!!

“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.  In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."

John `14:1-3


If Jesus is coming to receive us and bring us to heaven to mansions He has prepared, then we know that the rapture is pre-Tribulation because after the Tribulation, we are returning with Him to help set up His Kingdom here on earth to rule and reign with Him for 1000 years! If the rapture was post-Tribulation, then Jesus would not be coming to bring us to heaven to mansions He has prepared. I hope that encourages you today!

The Great Awakening, Great Revival, or the Great Escape?




I've had lots of opposition recently to some posts I've made that point to certain end times signs that prove we are getting close to the end of the age. I honestly try to vet everything I post and see if it's found in more than one reliable place. I will also share posts from other sites that I trust. I realize that some of these posts (i.e. ones dealing with the antichrist or the mandatory vaccine or how evil our leaders are) can be very frightening. I guess I'm one of those people who would rather know the truth than live in ignorant bliss. But I realize not all people are like that. Of course, to me, these signs get me more excited than afraid, because I know my Savior is coming soon! I have come to realize (better late than never) that not all people feel (or believe) that.  Which leads me to this post, today.

(By the way, if I ever post anything you feel is incorrect, please let me know. I try to post only true things, but I'm only human and have limited time. Also, I don't necessarily trust mainstream news, so it's often difficult to discover the truth from lies. All I ask is that you be polite about it. Let's not argue in comments or be mean to me or others. You never know when a non-believer will drop by and what a terrible witness! K?)

I've noticed there seem to be Four Camps of Christian end times beliefs in these last days.

1. Political Restoration and a Great Awakening.

I have members of this group in my own family. These would be the QAnon followers who believe that Trump and Q and the military who follow him will get rid of all the bad Deep State actors in D.C., clean out the swamp, and restore America to its former glory as a democratic republic of freedom and prosperity.  They believe these evil people, along with many pedophiles and satan worshipers will soon be jailed and made to pay for their crimes, and afterward America will rise again. Part of this rising will be a return to our Biblical roots and a revival of sorts where America turns back to God.!  Sounds great! 

The only problem is, it isn't Biblical. In addition, it reeks of a current false theology called New Apostolic Reformation. (more on that below).  The Bible is very clear on the events that occur in the end times leading up to the return of Jesus. Jesus describes these as birth pangs in Matthew 24. The Birth Pangs he describes there have already started. In fact, they began in the 1900s and have been increasing ever since. After having had two children, I know for a fact that once the birth pangs begin, they grow in intensity and frequency until the baby is born. They do not stop, they do not grow lighter. These pangs are described by Jesus and also throughout the New Testament by the Apostles.  So, the belief that all of a sudden there's going to be a Great Awakening in the US and a restoration of Godliness and Freedom is a pipe dream.  Do I wish it were true? Absolutely! I would love to see my grandkids grow up in a Godly nation as free individuals.  

Some may say that we aren't in the end times yet, so this Awakening could happen. I disagree. Jesus said in Matthew 24:32-35 that the generation that witnessed the birth of Israel would be the final generation. That was 72 years ago.  All the signs of the end are here. I could list them and explain each one but that is for another time. 

I used to follow Q. I would listen to what he or they said and hope it was all true. Arrests were coming. Thousands of indictments have been issued. But then nothing ever happened. It's a false flag, a good cop bad cop routine they are using to placate the patriots. If I'm wrong, I will be glad to admit it.


2. Great Revival is coming in these last days.

There are many believable Christians having dreams and visions about a coming final tidal wave of revival wherein the Holy Spirit is poured out upon believers and we go forth with signs and wonders to spread the Gospel to our neighbors, cities and communities!  In all in favor of this! I would love to see people in my city saved and come into the kingdom. I would love to be a part of that!  And I truly truly hope it happens. I pray for it to happen.

However, once again, I realize that throughout Scripture and history, God never sends revival without repentance and true commitment to Him. While there are some believers who are true followers of Jesus, I just don't see the church as a whole truly following Him. What I see is apostasy at the worst and lukewarmness at the best. It may not be your church, but most churches out there are lukewarm. Some churches accept the LBGTQ agenda, others preach prosperity gospel, others still the hyper-grace theology. Until the church falls on its knees and repents, I don't see why God would pour out His Holy Spirit on us. Maybe He will on the few who truly love Him and then He will send them out! I hope so.  Perhaps this will be His last ditch effort to save people before He returns.  

3. Great Escape - The Rapture

Those who follow this camp believe that we are very near the end and Jesus will rapture His Bride soon.  These are the people who know the Bible and have been watching the signs all around them that match up with Biblical prophecy.  Because of that, they can't help but believe that each day could be the day their Lord returns. Even though the world seems to be growing more and more evil around them, they do not lose heart, because they know that only means they will see their Lord soon. They stay informed, pray for discernment, and ask God to keep them from deception. They do not live in fear no matter what is going on around them. They are excited and live in great anticipation for that call from heaven!

4. New Apostolic Reformation  (AKA Dominionism or Kingdom Now)

In a nutshell, this is a movement that began in the 1990s and has swept across the globe and influenced many churches and church leaders here in America.  From what I understand, the people who started this movement believe that the chief roles of Apostles and Prophets was ignored by the church for too many years and needs to be brought back now in order for the church to fulfill Jesus's command to spread the Gospel across the world and make disciples of every nation.  Their churches or groups of churches are led by Apostles while Prophets rank number 2 in power and importance.

Here's an excerpt from an article I will link below:

Thus, NAR apostles and prophets claim that it is now God’s desire for the church — under the leadership of apostles and prophets — to take dominion of the earth in preparation for His return. This task will be accomplished with the help of miraculous powers wielded by the NAR apostles and prophets and their followers. 

Yet, it should be emphasized that, when NAR leaders talk about “transforming society,” as Wagner does here, they are not speaking merely of efforts to positively influence culture. Rather, they are speaking of efforts to take control of the earth’s societal institutions — that is, dominionism. This becomes more obvious when one understands another major NAR teaching known as the “Seven Mountain Mandate.” identified as government, media, family, business/finance, education, church/religion, and arts/entertainment.


They believe that before Jesus returns, there will be a great transfer of all the world's wealth from the hands of the wicked to the NAR Apostles. They also believe there will be a great End Times Revival when many people will come to Jesus. They do believe in the rapture but they believe it will only occur when the NAR followers receive some sort of last "revelation" from the Apostles and prophets that will immediately transform their immortal bodies into superhuman bodies.  

I'm linking to an article here from a woman who has researched this and written a book. This is a dangerous false doctrine, that while it seems to have good intentions, is leading many astray. It has infiltrated the church here in America and across the globe and led many people to believe that God's church will grow in holiness and power and eventually take over the entire world. (Sounds a lot like the Islamic goal)  In truth the Church of Christ will rule and reign here on earth for the 1000 year millennial reign of Christ, but we will rule with Jesus AND that doesn't happen until after the 7 year Tribulation. 

In other words, according the the Bible, things on earth grow worse and worse and worse, finally becoming even more horrific when the Antichrist rules the planet during the 7 year tribulation. God pours out His wrath on an unrepentant and evil generation during this time and then Jesus finally returns to defeat the Antichrist, lock up the devil, and take His rightful place as ruler of the earth from Jerusalem!!  This is all found in the Bible, yet these NAR people ignore it. The church does not take over the world BEFORE Jesus returns. If anything, the church ends up being more and more persecuted until we are raptured out of here. After that, God, Himself grants the antichrist the power to conquer any Christians left.  So, to believe that the Church will rise up and take over the world and make it a righteous planet before Jesus comes is heresy. 

If you have been taught that or believe that, I beg you to break free from it, get on your knees and repent and then read your Bible for yourself. If you want to know more, here's a great video by Amir Tsarfati, a preacher from Israel.

I, for one, find myself in camp 3. The signs are all around us and I know my Savior is coming soon. I do hope and pray for a revival, but if one comes, I believe it will be short. Labor pains do not stop. Hence, I will continue to look up to heaven for our redemption draws nigh!

If you want to call me a fear-monger or tell me I'm doing the devil's work, go ahead. I can only do what Jesus tells me to do. I only answer to Him.
