THE LORD’S RETURN IS IMMINENT. YOU’VE BEEN WARNED.

GOING ABOUT ONE’S OWN BUSINESS FILLED WITH WORLDLY DISTRACTIONS until the LORD returns to retrieve His bride is one of the most destructive views, perhaps even damnable, resulting from any New Testament takeaway that I’ve ever heard. And yet the western church justifies this very lifestyle in more ways than I even cared to admit for much of my adult life, mostly because I had an active part in the lie.

God is holy. The LORD’s soon marriage to His bride is a tux and gown event. And those who are being indiscreet with the kingdom invites, as Jesus stressed any number of times, may just find their lamps out of oil and the door to His chamber locked when He arrives.

“Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.” Luke 12:37

MY FAMILY’S YEAR-LONG INTERIM IN SOUTH CAROLINA IS QUICKLY COMING to an end. We only have a few more days before returning to the road full time, as the LORD has prompted us to do, and we’re excited for the short and long term possibilities. Outside, as I type these words, the rain is so concentrated that it can be difficult at times to distinguish its boundary between the clouds above and the reservoir of water below our deck. The wind howls in gusts, rustling violently through hanging curtains of Spanish moss. And thunder barrels over the limbs of ancient grand oak. Familiar weather for the Carolinian coastline.

Last night it was pouring too. My wife and I like to sleep upstairs with the balcony doors open so that the full impact of each night’s curiosities can be heard. If it’s not the deafening bugs and the croak of frogs and the screeching owls and the boat-like growls of alligators in the bayou or the often continuous whirl of midnight trains hounding my dreams then its the thunderous onslaught of rain.

In the midst of that storm I received the longest, clearest message from the LORD in my entire life.  It came over several concise stanzas. Firstly, I have been informed: the Beast is here. Secondly, the Mark is ready to be rolled out. But what really caught my attention, as it came to the words of my Master, is this:

“MY RETURN IS IMMINENT.

BE READY.”

Imminent can be defined as: “likely to occur at any moment; impending.”

But from a standpoint of Bible prophecy, it can also simply mean that no warning signs will indicate a short-term countdown, as Jesus’ coming is concerned. No wonder the late John Walvoord called imminency “the heart of Pretribulationism.” I’ll be posting almost two-dozen scripture verses below that spotlight the undeniable theology of immanency in the scriptures and which further outlines why those post-tribulation fan boys don’t have a leg to stand on.

Unless the LORD tarries, we could be only moments away from eternity.

Jesus will come unexpectedly. And when He does, sudden destruction will follow. God willing, I’ll be writing more on this topic of immanency and sudden destruction in the near future, as He’s asked me to do. But in the meantime I simply cannot deny such crucial information, which He gave me in the midst of the storm, as a watchman assigned to the midnight hour. For those who have not repented of their sins, for those who have backslidden in their faith and confused their engagement with Christ to a marriage with the world, then know this: The HARPAZO, or unannounced catching away of the saints, may also prove a judgement on the church. Did Billy Graham himself not assess, among his many highly populated crusades, that 80% of the church may not be saved? God alone is judge. I am not here to judge any one individual. All I know is what is revealed to me through His Word. In the midst of sudden destruction, many “insiders to the faith” will be brought to shame.

The LORD has spoken to me. And the alarm is sounding among His watchmen and prophets all across the world.

“MY RETURN IS IMMINENT.

BE READY.”

Get your heart right with God now. It’s the midnight hour. Though the LORD may tarry, don’t bet eternity on it. Just give the news a quick looksy-loo and know we may not have another minute to loose. You’ve been warned.

Maranatha!
