End times teaching among mainstream evangelicals, pastors and prophecy experts today is that the rapture could happen at any time and therefore no one knows the day or the hour this will happen. As fictionalized in the popular end times prophecy series, 'Left Behind', many teach that we can all just go along through our day to day lives not really serving God or diligently studying His word except as presented to us by someone else, and then one day before the tribulation starts "poof" we will all just disappear and never go through a time of testing or cleansing. They teach that the tribulation spoken of in Revelation is just for the unsaved Jews and the rest of the world. While it is true according to scripture that those who belong to God (YHWH) through repentance and faith in the death burial and resurrection of Jesus (Y'shua) are not appointed to God's wrath they may well be put through a time of cleansing and purification to burn out the dross prior to God's wrath coming upon the earth and unbelievers. The error in my opinion, based on Scripture, is the teaching that Christians are to be absent from start of tribulation and that the tribulation starts at the 1st seal when in fact if you study closely, there are two parts to the tribulation. There is plain old tribulation and then there's Great Tribulation. Tribulation is what happens when man and satan are allowed to rule the earth. Great Tribulation is what occurs in the few years prior to the return of Jesus (Y'shua Messiah) to rule and reign on earth for 1000 years, the time period known as the Millennial reign.
On this website I will attempt to guide you through a personal study that brings a fresh perspective to the study of Revelation based completely on the most literal interpretation of Revelation possible. But first we all need to set aside our presuppositions and our recollections of "stories" such as the popular FICTION series of books "Left Behind". The only way to be one of the five wise virgins and to be ready for the marraige supper of the Lamb is to study and truly know YHWH's Word which IS to know Yeshua Messiah, YHWH's Word made flesh (John 1) personally. Don't be one of the foolish virgins to whom Y'shua said "...Verily I say unto you, I know you not." (Mat. 25:12) Instead "Study to shew thyself approved unto God (Elohim in Hebrew), a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (2 Tim 2:15) When we all stand before Y'shua I don't think we will be allowed to blame our misconceptions of YHWH's word on someone else. Instead we are told that "...every one of us shall give account of himself to God." (Rom 14:12) So please don't take my word for anything contained on this website instead ask to be filled with YHWH's Holy Spirit that He may lead and teach you from His word according to His purpose. "But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. (John 14:26)
As stated many times throughout
this website Yeshua is a form of the transliterated pronunciation for Jesus' Hebrew Name and YHWH (from Hebrew letters Yod, Hey, Waw, Hey) is a transliterated form of the Hebrew pronunciation for THE LORD'S name. I will refer to these throughout this website so there is no doubt who I am speaking of. However for ease of recognition and understanding will also occasionally use the English forms found in the English KJVof the bible which of course are THE LORD and His Son Jesus.
