500 Christians Killed in Nigeria

These are just some of those who are before YHWH's throne waiting for the end.

Revelation 7:9-17

Rev 7:9 After this I looked and saw a great crowd which no one was able to count, out of all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, dressed in white robes, and palm branches in their hands,

Rev 7:10 and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Deliverance belongs to our Elohim who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”

Rev 7:11 And all the messengers stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped Elohim,

Rev 7:12 saying, “Amĕn! The blessing, and the esteem, and the wisdom, and the thanksgiving, and the respect, and the power, and the might, to our Elohim forever and ever. Amĕn.”

Rev 7:13 And one of the elders responded, saying to me, “Who are these dressed in white robes, and where did they come from?”

Rev 7:14 And I said to him, “Master, you know.” And he said to me, “These are those coming out of the great distress, having washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

Rev 7:15 “Because of this they are before the throne of Elohim, and serve Him day and night in His Dwelling Place. And He who sits on the throne shall spread His Tent over them.

Rev 7:16 “They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more, neither shall the sun strike them, nor any heat,

Rev 7:17 because the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne shall shepherd them and lead them to fountains of waters of life. And Elohim shall wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

All of the millions upon millions of Jews and Christians who have been martyred since Yahshua died are all waiting. Did you know that more than 250,000 people are martyred every year? We who live in the Western world rarely hear of these killings. Killings of innocent people just living and working and serving YHWH who are killed just because they are Christian. Many of them are killed by Muslims, like these 500 in Nigeria. Mostly women and children. Defenseless against the onslaught of murder.

To me this is the most damning evidence against a pre-tribulational rapture that is taught by Western churches. Just because this didn't happen in America most think that we are not in tribulation yet. Wonder what these people thought? Location means everything I think. The thing I hear most from pre-tribbers is that it's not bad enough yet or Yahshua (Jesus) would have taken us out. Well just how bad does it have to be before you give up your theology?

We have been in tribulation since Yahshua died. Matthew 24 is Him speaking to the apostles about what life would be like from then until He returns. It is not some 7 year period which has no basis whatsoever in scripture.

It's almost over people. We have been in tribulation and it's getting worse. It will continue to get worse until His return. It will get so bad that unless He returns there will be no one left.

This heaviness is upon us and I'm sure it won't leave us until it is all over. Insane things are about to happen that have grown men crying out for mercy. It is the time that we who are in Him trust Him no matter what.
