Are You Ready For The Great Tribulation
This is a question that we need to ask ourselves daily so that we will be ready the the event.
This period of time is fast approaching and we need to have the right garments, menorah lamp full of oil with the vessel of oil, and "the mind of YAHSHUA" on for this great event. We are in a Life and Death situation and it is for our soul nephish is at stake as to where we will spend eternity.
How does YAHWEH Prepare HIS People?
Did not YAHWEH send men ahead to prepare HIS people for famines and also the deportation of Yisrael and Yahudah to Babylon. So will HE send men with Truth and just judgement to HIS people that are scattered to the four corners of the earth to prepare them for this final forty two months. Have you bought the Truth or have you been eating the husk of this world? Have you bought gold tried in the fire? Is the vessel ready to hold the Oil.
Jobs Fortitude and great Enduring Patience
We must look at Job and his fortitude that he had, I know that it does not use the word fortitude in Scripture but the words meaning fits Job precisely, and so I use it to give a clear understanding of Job in his trials or tribulation.
The Merriam Webster dictionary gives this for fortitude: 1. strength, impregnability
2. : the strength or firmness of mind that enables a person to encounter danger with coolness and courage or to bear pain or adversity without murmuring, depression, or despondency : passive courage : resolute endurance.
Synonyms of fortitude are: grit, backbone, pluck, guts and sand. Although these terms are often used interchangeably, the following distinctions may be made: fortitude usually indicates blended resolute courage, firm behaviour, and power of prolonged endurance under duress. Look at these clear meanings and synonyms and see if there are others that you may know and also in Scripture if there is anyone that displays this type of fortitude. The first to come to mind is YAHSHUA. Then the prophets and David did to, and also the apostles at their martyrdom, the list goes on.
Much strength can be gained from Job and satans attack on him. One should read the Testament of Job to get a fuller picture of what took place. It is written at the end of his life, when he gives his testament to his second set of children of what took place in the "Book of Job" and fills in more detail as to the reason of satans attack on him.
The first thing is that he knew that satan was going to attack him for what he did to satan and his idols and temples of worship. Read "Testament Of Job Chapter 1-5" and of the Malak (angel) that revealed to Job what would happen to him. This removed the total surprise of the disastrous news of what took place,, he knew what was going to take place and was prepared. If we know that something is about to take place, we begin preparing for the event if we are wise, and will gather in supplies before the event in so that we can be prepared before the expected disaster, even if we do not know the exact order of the disaster, you can be prepared. YAHWEH has warn us for 2000 years that this event will come, and this event will come on time, and there is no stopping it at all. Have you fallen asleep waiting for this time? Or are you fearful and afraid of this time? Sin lies at the door. When you have a pure white garment on you will not be afraid at all, but move in the fear of YAHWEH as did Noah to the saving of his household.
Are You Washed And Covered?
Look at Job how he offered up sacrifices for his children, so when the news came he knew he had done the necessary preparation of the required sacrifice and thus putting the covering over then and that they were in the hands of YAHWEH. Job had done all he knew to do and was at shalom with enduring patience. Are you washed in the water and the blood and are you doing it also for the your brothers and sister??? We also need to look at YAHSHUA. Job destroyed the fiscal external things, but YAHSHUA the spiritual internal things in the heart of men.
