RESCUE FROM JUDGMENT

Throughout scripture God shows a pattern of rescuing His people from judgement. Most of us think of Sodom and Gomorrah and the rescue of Lot and his family. Abraham asked the messenger (the pre-incarnate Christ): Will You indeed sweep away the righteous with the wicked?" (Genesis 18: 23). God's answer then and today was, no.

During the flood God saved Noah and his family; a total of eight people from which to build back the human gene pool. This following verse in 1st Peter has reference to the Nephilim of Genesis Chapter six; the flood "during the days of Noah." Peter reveals that after the victory of the cross Jesus descended the depths to proclaim His victory and subsequent divine judgments and condemnation over those fallen angels that had been imprisoned since the days of Noah. And not only these very powerful demons, but also Christ's supremacy over all angels, demonic authorities, and powers. Power that we, as His delegated inheritors through faith, have at our disposal when proclaiming LIGHT over darkness.

So that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father (Philippians 2: 10).

The assault of the Nephilim was such a serious affront to God that before he rose to heaven, He made this special trip to the prisons in the depths of the earth where powerful demons still await a brief time when they will be loosed during the seven year Tribulation of Revelation. Pay special attention to the following verse.

For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit; in which also He went and made proclamation to the spirits now in prison, who once were disobedient, when the patience of God kept waiting in the days of Noah, during the construction of the ark, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely through the water. Corresponding to that, baptism now saves you - not the removal of dirt from the flesh, but an appeal to God for a good conscience - through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who is at the right hand of God, having gone into heaven, after angels and authorities and powers had been subjected to Him (1st Peter 3: 18-22).

Through the Prophet Jeremiah God told the people that those going into captivity should settle in for the long haul. Seventy years to be exact. They should plant and eat, work and marry and raise families. Not allowing the Hebrew people to get too comfortable, God then told them that Babylon would be invaded. In His very great goodness and in faithful honor of His promises Jehovah then told the people exactly what they should do. They should flee from this national judgment soon to be visited on a corrupt, pagan, brutal culture and nation.

Listen, my people, flee from Babylon. Save yourselves! Run from the Lord's fierce anger. But do not panic when you hear the first rumor of approaching forces. For rumors will keep coming year by year. Then there will be a time of violence as the leaders fight against each other. For the time is surely coming when I will punish this great city and all her idols. Her whole land will be disgraced, and her dead will lie in the streets (Jeremiah 51: 45-47).

God told them that when they saw the leadership begin to turn on one another, that would be the signal. In the same way God assures us that He will rescue us from the destruction of our times. Mark 13 and Matthew 24 gives us the "signals" to watch for. One particular and telling signal is a second threat to the the gene pool as science catches up with scripture; a unique and revealing evidence of just how close we are to experiencing the Rapture of the Church / the removal of the body of Christ (the Church) from the world. As we approach the end of the Church Age and the start of Revelation Jesus says that He will remove His children from the earth before that terrible, horrible time begins; no worse time ever witnessed down the long scope of human history.

But we do not want you to be uninformed brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until that coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words
(1st Thessalonians 4: 14-18).

These words are describing the rapture of the church... the rescue of Christians from the last world-wide judgment to visit human kind. All of scripture is peppered with instances of divine rescue from various judgments. As always we will see the birth pains, but we will not see the actual terrors described in vivid specificity in Revelation.

He is good. He loves us. He loves you!

By the way... The book of Revelation is the only book in Scripture where God promises a special blessing for those that read it... all of it, chapter and verse.
