The concept of a pre-tribulation "rapture," though believed and taught by many who want to escape that time is clearly demonstrated to be a LIE introduced into the body of Christ by unknowing by unknowing men and their institutions is demonstrated with complete clarity in the Lord's answer to His disciples' question, "Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the time of your coming and of the end of the world." What He told them, which applies to the body of Christ at this present time, is clearly demonstrated in Matthew 24 and 25. And in the Lord's own words He told them that "most of My people will fall away." In addition, the prophet, Zechariah, proclaimed that two thirds of the body of Christ would fall away because of the trouble.
The Red, Black, and Pale Green Horseman whose name is “Death” Followed by the Coming of the Lord :A Synoptic Understanding
The White, Red, and current Black horses, and their controlling spiritual entities are identified and their activities are identified in world events, leading to a prophetic understanding of the Pale
BABYLONIA is the beast kingdom ruled by Satan as this beast kingdom impacts world systems including governments, and various institutions, including Christian institutions, Christian educational systems, Church organizations, banking institutions, science, media of all kinds, as has been perfectly demonstrated in the Biden administration's dismantling of democracy and the destruction of both the economy and the welfare of American citizens.
Though much of organized Christianity is believing and hoping for a "pre-tribulation rapture escape" what is revealed in scripture is much, much more glorious and inspiriing for those overcoming saints who are walking the fullness of the life and ministry appointed to them in this life.
In spite of numerous conspiracy theories, most of which have at least some basis in the truth, our understanding about who or what is in control is not easily discerned. Many Christian believers are observing with their intellects, and sensing in their spirits, that things are going terribly wrong in the world, and that whatever kingdom of God influence has existed in the world through the body of Christ is now losing ground rapidly. But our understanding in this regard is vague, and it is time for us to “see” with spiritual eyes and “hear” with spiritual ears what the Spirit of truth wants to reveal to us concerning this issue so that we will understand and respond appropriately, by faith, to the voice of the Lord during these difficult days.
Our division into hundreds of denominations and millions of rabbinic interpretations of scripture demonstrates a massive disconnect from the Spirit of Truth who was sent to guide us into all truth. We have normalized this division among us, but the Lord has given us specific instructions concerning how we are to receive and respond to His truth, covenant promises, and commands if we are to walk by faith as intended by the Father.
Satan, the Father of Lies, has conspired against the people of God from Adam forward, and he does this through the introduction of false doctrine, and especially false doctrine concerning the time of the end, into the body of Christ by unknowing Christian leaders through the ages who have been deceived concerning all doctrine. Yet, the most dangerous false doctrines for this present generation concern the END TIMES. And according to the Lord's own prophecy a MAJORITY of His people will fall away from faith during the 4th, 5th, and 6th seal events because they were misled by popular, but false, prophecies introduced into the body of Christ by deceived men.
The intent of God for the body of Christ is for us to be fully engaged in the warfare of the Kingdom of God against the Beast Kingdom as we bring the lost to faith and teach them to obey everything that He has commanded us. We are also COMMANDED in Ephesians 6:18 to engage in spiritual warfare with Satan and his beast kingdom as we bring the lost to faith and as we protect our fellow believers against the continual assaults of the beast kingdom against our fellow members of the body of Christ.
Ephesians 6:18 is like a CODE RED message from Paul as he defines prayer in militaristic terms after telling us in verses 1-17 that we are engaged in continuous warfare with spiritual forces of evil intent on killing, stealing, and destroying as revealed to us by the Lord (John 10:10).He doesn’t see this warfare as an occasional raid by terrorists. He sees it more like constant trench warfare. Kill or be killed. But it seems like many in the church are scarcely aware that this warfare is taking place, though it is evident all around us, and many are already suffering as POWs with subsequent consequences for themselves, their families, their friends, and their church fellowships.
So, who is this mysterious group having endured the 4th, 5th, and 6th seals of “tribulation”? Are they 12,000 literal Jewish male virgins from each of twelve tribes of Israel? If so, what is their purpose, and how did they suddenly appear on the scene without any identifiable relationship to the events taking place prior to their appearance? The truth concerning this prophecy has been unsealed and revealed for the benefit of the generation of the body of Christ who will experience it.
