All true believers are weary and so ready for the Lord to come. It is fitting that the new testament talks about our "armour".

Its time we put it on..fight for the gospel truth and also quench the firey darts of those who are of the kingdom of darkness. Victory is in sight..halleujah!! Our King cometh!

Happy Sunday TP family! I pray you feel a renewal in your spirit! Birth pangs give us great joy not the spirit of fear. We are not brides filled with fear or angst as we tarry on.... our GROOM will return for us. We are precious in His sight and He will carry us through these last end days. We ARE that generation. May you feel encouraged today-- https://youtu.be/Bj_9ikvCx6o 💛

Happy Sunday to you and your folks Kari! I love that song! I love the piano because it is pretty simple to learn. I'm still working on getting it right though.

I agree that we ARE that generation...

....and we need to induce labor. 😬

I had 3 natural childbirths & I love this comparison in the Bible & how you describe it.

Even during the greatest pains of child bearing I still was looking forward to seeing & holding my baby.

I am a disabled cancer survivor who suffers pain & problems every day. Because of this it makes me look forward to our Lord’s return even more.

Even though I have little money & see prices rising daily, I refuse to worry because God has always provided for me, often in miraculous ways in my past, so I trust He will provide & protect me until He returns or the day comes when I get to graduate to Heaven.

Oh Sheila, what an inspiration this is. You are so right, God has always provided for me too! Even in my very lowest times, when I didn't know how I was going to make it financially, he was always there. So long, our nation has been blessed with prosperity forgetting that those who founded this country faced perils, starvation, and danger like we have never seen. I am so thankful that God Almighty in heaven looked upon this nation and has blessed it beyond measure. We could never have survived as a nation without his sovereign Lordship over us! So thankful that he supplies our physical, financial, and spiritual needs! Without him, I am nothing. Apart from him, I can do nothing. Love you sister.

You know.... it's strange to me about the timing of Jesus' return and prophetic words that are given concerning individuals. I'm not talking about pew-prophets, but people in leadership who reliably hear from the Lord and it is obvious (by the Deuteronomy 18:22 standard). It's fascinating to hear prophetic words spoken over children and teens who in their *adult* years will be raised up to minister to the nations, etc., etc.

I've often thought "Well... if they reach adulthood that could be another 25-30 years that we have to live in this mess! How is that possible!?" It's not the first time that I've heard these kind of things and had these kind of thoughts. I include myself in this - prophetic words spoken over me by people I know hear from the Lord, but I ponder... "It doesn't seem possible, given the times that we live in..."

I don't have any answers to this paradox, I believe we are in the last seconds before the return of Jesus. I can't IMAGINE this wickedness carrying on for even another 10 years. Maybe the promises of God concerning the call on people carry on into heaven. Anyways... I'm wondering if anyone out there has had this same conundrum of thought lol.

Love you all,

- Steven

Steven, I, of course, don't know who you have heard the prophecies from but Jesus said there will be many who prophesy but do not truly know him. We have to be very careful and check everything and I mean everything against His Word. Satan is ramping up his campaign and he will use anything and anyone who will let him become a stumbling block in our way. I think the best thing is just to not worry because this whole thing will play out exactly as God has planned!

Yes, Steven, you put very well the questions i have also had many times. I actually just commented (meant to reply in the original thread 🤦🏼‍♀️) about how i believe these will all be fulfilled in the millennium. But I’d love to hear if this has biblical backing.

Expand full comment

Hi Jolin, ya we might conclude that somebody is way off in their calculations of how close we are to the birthing of the baby, and I don’t think it’s God. I resolve this issue for myself by focusing on the signs of the times as the Bible spells them out and it does appear that we are that last generation, indeed. As in, the end is coming soon! I also keep my ear close to the folks that are already looking up for my own well being, and theirs. We are to encourage one another as we wait, and anyone else that will listen. It is the end of the end and some may not know it until they are flying towards heaven with the rest of us that knew. I have no idea why I picked up that first book in the Left Behind series so many years ago, but I’m sure glad I did. What God revealed to me there to get the ball rolling, changed everything. 🌻

A little off topic but something you said ( about not knowing why you picked up the "left behind book ) made me realize something so I just wanted to put it out there. Alot of people on here have (rightfully so) disparaged several of the shallow, "feel good", prosperity, mega-church preachers out there. For me personally, it was a few of these pastors that caused me to feel that initial closeness to God and hunger for that personal relationship. From there, I searched for much more biblically based teachers and moved on to being ready for eating a full course meal instead of just having airport peanuts and a cup of coffee. I guess God can use even materialistic, wrongly guided people for his purposes. Well, I have years worth of emergency food stored away because I was convinced we'd have to go through the tribulation. So thank you Mr J.O. for that initial introduction to the Lord and Mr. J.B. for filling my walk-in closet with food for those left behind. 😋 💙

Hi Kris, wanted to share a story that was in a letter from Bob Ulrich of Prophecy Watchers. He told of how he and Gary Stearman launched PW Ministry eight years ago. (Gary and Tim LaHaye appreciated each other’s writings and teachings). Gary was kneeling in prayer at his church, struggling with knowing for sure that it was God’s will to start this new ministry. As he prayed, his cell phone rang. “Unavailable” showed on his screen. He let it go to VM and went back to praying. His phone rang again, still unavailable. He decided to answer this time. The first words out of the caller’s lips were “Gary, this is Tim LaHaye, and the Lord told me to call and encourage you.” Gary praised the Lord for giving him the answer he was asking of Him!

Hope this blesses you today!

It sure appears that it could be the next war to take place... guess it could turn into a WW3. But I still think that WW3 could happen pretty soon as of a result of the Ukraine war. Might end up with 2 different wars happening close together or simultaneously. :)

I can see that happening too. I guess that's why I loved today's post. You can feel it happening... women & men both feeling labor pains (finally lol) I can't imagine all the things that can happen before the rapture. Praise God we won't be here for the tribulation.

Hi Kari, maybe you have watched the newnews youtube channel. A brother named Ross teaches weekly. I sometimes have difficulty following him, but he believes Psalm 83 war is soon. Like the next prophetic event. I guess most prophecy watchers expect it to be soon. God bless you and yours 💕

I have been reading Bill Salus' material on Psalm 83 war and it is an eye opener. The countries listed that God's says will war against Israel, and the Jews fight and win that war, are not the same counties listed for the Gog-Magog war which God will win for Israel miraculously without the Jews getting involved! Very interesting!

I have a question about prophetic words spoken over people...how does that work with an impending rapture? I know people who have had very specific words and promises that have relatively long times lines. Does that mean God isn’t returning until those promises are fulfilled? How does that match God being a God that keeps promises and fulfills prophecy? Does that mean we may still have years? (Ex: Pastor Robert said it’s been prophecied that James will take Gateway from 10 to 100 campuses. Well that’s gonna take awhile....)

Hi Jolin, I've heard some prophetic words spoken over the years that came to pass, but most haven't. They are not always accurate. The one that sticks with me the most was a prophetic word spoken to a couple I was close friends with that were in the ministry and similar in nature to the example you've given was spoken over them by a recognized minister. This was over 30 years ago. It never came to pass and ended up being a real disappointment for the couple. They were very gifted and respected in the Houson area. I'm very familiar with Pastor Robert and this prophecy over his son. In my opinion this one will not come to pass either. As Jimmy so well presented in his message today... we are about to experience the rapture.

All prophetic spoken words need to reconcile with what the Bible is saying and should be a confirmation of something you feel God is already speaking to you. What has always troubled me is that most of the prophetic spoken words given are telling someone they are going to do something or be someone on a grand scale. Be the next superstar for Jesus so to speak. And that couple I mentioned did become a bit arrogant thinking they were going to have a world wide ministry.

Thanks for this perspective David. Food for thought to be sure!! I'm still talking to the Lord about this - I tend to lean towards your perspective. In the end, regardless of if 100 people hear the same thing prophetically, we have to fall on the sure Word of God. That is the only word that we know is 100% accurate :)

Expand full comment

Agreed David. 👍

Expand full comment

David, let me start by saying i 💯 agree we will be raptured very soon, so this question isn’t coming from a place of skepticism, just of trying to understand. Yes, I’m aware that not all prophetic words are accurate. However, I’m aware of many that have been for people close to me, and the same with visions God has given, even for my children and their lives. When the rapture near, does God cease giving vision and prophecy for any longer-term events? That seems like the Christ followers across the world would all be in a very odd place spiritually if God was not giving any of us future promises/vision all at the same time 🤔 (also, in regards to your friend that it didn’t come to pass, we as receivers have some responsibility for stewarding a prophecy well, and allowing pride to overcome us could prevent God from using us as He would like. 🫤)

I actually have a theory regarding prophecies and visions for the future, but i want to know if Jimmy (or Mark) have something scriptural to address it. My PERSONAL belief, as of now, is that the many prophecies and visions my own family and dear friends have from God is that God will fulfill them in the millennial kingdom. I know people God has given huge visions to, for themselves and their families, that seem impossible to find fulfillment in this current world (and especially if we are raptured soon), but all of them would make PERFECT SENSE if they were part of Gods plan for them during the 1000 years (including my own children) 🥰 I’d just love to hear from someone else if this has biblical backing.

I just want to share about a prophet that prophesied over me and some of my family and a friend several years ago. My adult newly married son was a new Christian and he was told that some day he would have a position and be over many people. My daughter-in-law and I were happy and knew that he would be having small group studies of the Bible in their home that would grow. It happened and now he has been elected as sheriff of our county and has a jail ministry. This prophet told me that Jesus loves me and had forgiven me for all the sins I had repented of that satan kept bringing up. Then...to my friend he had some encouraging words too but also told her that there were times that she needed to spend more time listening than speaking. The same thing some of her closest friends(me included) had told her! Funny in some ways but very beneficial and we all still speak of this man who knew none of us but had a good word for us!

Expand full comment

That's beautiful Debi. Love this! So incredibly happy for your son. What an incredible way to strengthen your faith by actually experiencing a prophesy come true. Amazing! My husband is retired LE and I worked for a few years in a county jail myself. God placed me there after being a stay at home mom for many years, going through a divorce and needing a job FAST to take care of my kids. It was the furthest thing away from what I'd gone to college for but ended up being an amazing experience. Iooked forward to putting on my uniform everyday. God clearly wanted me there. 😊 it's amazing the places God will send us if our minds and hearts are open. GBU 🙏

Thank you Jessie. It is amazing what God has in store for us! I have become friends with that prophet now. He also made some predictions about the election in 2020 which have ended up spot on. My son and daughter-in-law are building a shop that when the evil gets so bad we can't attend church we will meet there. I am blessed that my son and his family are all in for God. That is my greatest blessing along with my own salvation!

I'm sure Jimmy is very knowledgeable in this particular area... had much experience with it. Hopefully, he'll address it. Regarding the couple I mentioned they stewarded it very well and the pride I saw was minor and faded. My perception was they didn't foul it up, but the minister who spoke the prophetic word missed it... it was an error. Prophetic words can be awesome if on target and very harmful if not on target. Your personal belief sounds very reasonable to me, but it's the first time I've heard that. Again, hope Jimmy addresses it. :)

Expand full comment

Jolin, I've really enjoyed reading your comments today and David & Steven's thoughts too. It's a great question.... I want to make sure I'm understanding your question. Definitely believe in dreams & visions.... are you asking will God cease giving people "long term" visions/prophecies due to the timeframe of the rapture?

Expand full comment

Yes, i guess that’s the crux of the question. Because people close to me, and others i know have, have received both prophetic words and dreams/visions that would have to have a far future fulfillment. Given that it’s likely we would be raptured well before some of these could be fulfilled, what does that say about His prophecies/visions remaining unfulfilled? Or will He not give any future-fulfillment prophecies/visions when the rapture is near?

I’ll give an example of a friend; she is currently homeschooling and has a few years before graduating her kids, but she feels God has called her/given her a dream to open a classical school for underprivileged/inner city kids, out in the country. A school that educates kids with no means in a Christ centered education. In our current political/education environment i don’t even see how that could happen, but also she has no funding or location for this, and still has to finish schooling her own kids. I could, on the other hand, see this happening in the millennium. 🤷‍♀️

Thank you so much, Pastor Jimmy. What a hopeful beautiful way to describe life here and now. I was very blessed in child birth. My pain was minimal, and I did it completely natural. I have been told it was because I have big hips, LOLOL !! Whatever the reason, i was truly blessed!! This world is truly suffering. It hurts me for the young, innocent lives that are in turmoil, and for the older unsaved folks on this earth. They dont understand it at all. All they know is what main stream media tells them, of which most is blatant lies, and the fear mongers that are pushing climate change. Its so sad to me that more folks are ignoring the alarm bells that are going off in their own hearts and minds. Jesus let me know He was there, but i didnt ignore Him. It was like a hunger that could be filled only one way, and that way was Christ Jesus. I was walking my little dog Chloe down the alley to the back door of my apartment building, and on a low wall was laying a book. So, because I love to read , I walked over and picked it up. And it was a brand new Bible. I almost put it right back down. Instead, i took it home. Between that Bible, and my Aunt Donna who i found on facebook messenger about 8 months later, my whole life has changed. It took me a while, and my Aunt telling me about a book called Tipping Point by Jimmy Evans, and then finding all of you, but i finally gave myself over to the Lord, and made Him the Lord of my life, and i have never looked back. Praise the Lord. What if i hadnt been moved to look at that book in the alley? My pount is that Jesus nudges us all to seek Him out, and i wish more folks would take it to heart, and not turn away. I love my Lord and Savior. It hurts me to see what's happening to people as they continue to turn away. Pretty soon their dilutions are going to become all they have. God will give them over to it. Like climate change, and because they chose to believe the lies, they won't know the truth until its to late. I'm so grateful God made me to be a reader, and He knew I wouldn't be able to pass a book just laying there, and it was a Bible. Everyday God amazes me. I still have that Bible. Praise God.

I loved your story Verna. ❤️ It's beautiful how God actually chases after us until we FIND him.. 😊 As for having childbearing hips...that made me laugh. I certainly have them but the first birth was 12 hours of being run over by a truck over and over again. 😮 I seriously asked God just to kill me right there and then...lol The second one was 2 hours total with hardly any pain at all. She was born 5 minutes after I got to the hospital, 2 pushes and she was out and I got up off the table 5 minutes later. The 3rd was easier than the first but harder than the 2nd. Induced all day but nothing started so they sent us home and we went to a movie where someone let off pepper spray in the theater. Came back the next day and they induced again and he was born a few hours later. Love your post, thank you for blessing us with that! Love you! ❤️

Well Verna, you showed THEM by popping that baby out when they didn't want you there! 😆 I'll share a little more about my second ( easy) birth. It'll take your mind off the cold...lol My prior husband refused to take me to the hospital. I was begging him and told him something didn't feel right and I needed a Dr. He said it wasn't fair for him to have to go when he hadn't eaten so he made me wait and made a big meal for himself. I told him the baby was coming but he simply didnt care. The reason I was feeling so weird is because the baby was ready to be born. I was literally holding her in. I could feel her head ready to come into the world. He finally agreed to take me ( after he ate) and I got as far as the car and started having to " push". You know what that means! I finally got him to drive me to the hospital. Fast. God was clearly keeping me and my daughter safe because my contractions completely stopped for the car ride ( 15 minutes) and immediately started back up at the hospital. She literally popped out just a few minutes later. 😳 Now you know one reason why our marriage couldn't work. That and his xtracurricular activities! 😮 Hugs!

Great testimony Verna. God’s divine appointment for you to pick up that Bible and a blessing to whoever left it there. To God be the Glory; and I would like to share with you that while living in Ripon, California before I moved to Oklahoma that the Holy Spirit led me to buy New Testament at the Dollar Store and leave them on a counter at my bank, post office counter and other places. I prayed and asked the Lord to place them in someone’s life and come to know Him. When I went to the Bank and P.O. They had been picked up by someone. I underlined John 3:16 with a red marker. I placed one here in our laundry room. That is why I say; God’s Word does not return void; but accomplishing what He sends it to be. That so warms my heart ♥️ that you found that Bible; God’s Word. I’ll never know who picked up those New Testaments, but God does. Love you. Verna and your Love for our Lord Jesus and your sweet spirit. I’ve passed out a few NT here. Dollar Store is great. Have a blessed Thanksgiving. To God be the Glory! 🙏♥️🥰

Jessie, you can chime in any time my dear. So blessed for you to do the same about the Bibles. That makes me happy as the Holy Spirit is so Good to share this with the TP family and you are a blessing. It’s a good way to place those Bibles or New Testaments in various places. We are spreading seeds everywhere of God’s Word. If you have a Dollar Store near you , check to see if they have some available. I sense in my spirit that as the Rapture is near we need to keep our lights shining for His Kingdom. As Dr. Jeremiah teaches; It’s the world of the end; but not the end of the world. Turning Point Ministries has a Nativity (live) that will be showing soon. Love you and thanks for your response. My Church made these small cards with the Church name and service times. I handed out one today at Staples to a guy who took my order; I ask if I could give him a card and he immediately said yes. I invited him to come and introduced him to the Lord. I’m having a bookmark printed for my Ladies class and family to give for Christmas 🎄. The title of my Bookmark is; The Bible reveals the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. It has other explanations of the Bible, but too long to post here. Love you and your family and many blessings and God’s favor. I love that even if Life is hard; God is 😌 Good all the time. 🙏🥰

Glory to God, Glee. It was all Him. He brought me around to who He is, and what he could make me into. He is my hero, my Lord and Savior, my joy and my peace. When I grow up, I want to emulate Him. Perhaps not til I go up. I will keep on working on me, and be completely grateful for His grace and mercy. Praise the Lord for us all! God is good!!

I have had exactly one dream about the rapture and it was about 8 years ago.

I was in a field, like a playground. It looked like Texas in the winter - dry brown grass. There were a group of children, holding hands and singing hymns, and I thought to myself how precious that was. I went to join them, and all of the sudden, their faces became fixated on the sky.

When I turn to look at the sky, I saw what appeared to be a very small cloud. The cloud became bigger and bigger, and it’s like I was given binocular vision, and I could see doors that were opened in heaven. Have you ever seen people pouring out of a movie theater? That’s exactly what it looked like except for they were angels and saints, I think, all dressed in white. Pretty soon this enormous cloud formed in the sky and I started running. I saw my wife on the top of a roof. I said to her daddy‘s back!!!!

All of the sudden I start going up into the sky, I will never forget the look of the angels face that was holding open one of the doors. It was not a happy face, it was a very somber fixation on the saints, and on the earth. The angel did not look at me, but was waving me in while continuing to look at the earth. it’s the same kind of expression that I would imagine they gave Lot while he was sent away to a different city, while Soddom and Gomorrah were awaiting judgment. It was a very very serious moment.

Anyways, that was my dream 🙏

Wow! Amazing dream Steven! A totally different take than I've heard before. We always think of the angels being happy but it makes sense that there's going to be sorrow and anger toward all those not allowed to enter. So interesting. Thanks for sharing that! 😇

Thanks Jessie. To your comment about the angels being somber… that will always stick with me about that dream. I just remember thinking “I MADE IT!” and being so happy that all of the lies of the enemy about me not belonging to Jesus (that’s something he has always pestered me over time and again) were finally OVER.

But as I’m rejoicing over seeing Jesus and all my departed loved ones, the look on that angel’s face… they way he looked right past me and continued waving people in … WOW was that ever sobering. He looked so sad and concerned at the same time. You could tell that whatever was coming, he didn’t want anyone who belonged to Jesus to have any part of it.

Also, when I told my wife about this dream, she immediately recalled Matthew 24:17-18, which I thought was very profound:

“Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes.” In my dream I was in a field and she was on a rooftop. She thought that perhaps that meant when Jesus returns, I will be out in the field working and she will be at home. I’m a pilot and she works remote, so I suppose that’s entirely possible (although my heart is that we would be together when He comes back).

The LORD has a history of speaking to me through dreams, and they DO come to pass…very accurately. He does the same thing with my wife. It doesn’t happen all the time of course, but I take note when I have dreams like this because I know they are from Him.

Thanks so much for your comment 🙏

Steven, I'm so taken by your dream. I keep thinking about it. 😄 Thats amazing that you and your wife both share this special gift and her giving you that bible verse is really astute. I do hope you won't be on a flight when the rapture comes but if so, I'm sure she'll be taken at the same time and you'll see her entering the gates at the exact same moment. 😊 And, I actually like the thought of the angels being more somber. It shows how serious this really is because many will be left behind. Our judgement is for eternity. We can't just say " changed my mind" as it'll be too late by then.

I'm also looking forward to saying " I made it". 😄 Yeah!

I think the devil messes with ALL of us making us think we're not worthy or good enough and maybe we'll be passed by. Occasionally I also think that but I know in my heart that's just a lie and its just the enemy trying to discourage me. None of us are perfect or sinless. That's why he sacrificed his life so we could be 100% forgiven. Please share any dreams that you or your wonderful wife are comfortable sharing. I know LOTS of us would love to hear them. Have a wonderful holiday! GBU 😊

Hello Jessie - so glad it blesses you! Something else that came to mind years ago when I had this dream was the cloud. I think of Hebrews (12:1) where it says "we are surrounded by a cloud of witnesses" and how Jesus will come back with the clouds (Rev 1:7). So I think of how amazing it is that from a distance, all of the angels (I still don't know if there were saints mixed in, I just saw angels dressed in white) looked exactly like a cloud!

Anyways, I sure am happy that this dream ministered to you. There are other ones I have had, that I will be sure to share when the opportunity presents itself in the conversation. I was shy about sharing this at first because I didn't want to get into a dream contest (LOL), but ... I'm so blessed that you liked it!

Lord bless you dear sister!!

A cloud contest. 😂 That's funny! Well you won first prize....lol Yes, people on here ( me included...I'm guilty) get off on tangents occasionally but usually everyone kind of course corrects. 😉

And wouldn't that be interesting if that cloud is actually witnesses dressed in white looking like a cloud. 🤔 That would be pretty amazing if the angels and the saints accompany Jesus in bringing us all up. Thank you dear brother for blessing me today with your knowledge and Godly wisdom. Blessings to you and family! GBU 😇
