LEFT BEHIND

PATIENCE OF THE SAINTS

Excellent ... You made it back.

Make sure you check the scripture that is being shared in this Patience of the Saints study, in your Bible as to confirm TRUTH.

As we have learned, ONE of the three possible things that could happen to Christians before, during and after the End Times is that they could die for the name of Christ. 

What does that mean exactly? 

Well, when you become a Christian, you become one with Christ, so if you die a Christian, you die in the name of Christ, or in other words, bearing His name, or belonging to Him. Now that may sound a bit strange but the Bible makes it clear ...

Luke 17:33
Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it
.

According to the Bible ... Once the End Times begin, there will be Christians who die. Some will be killed because of their beliefs and refusing to take the mark of the beast (antichrist) or refusing to bow to his image that is created and demand that all worship.

If you die believing in Christ, you die in the name of Christ. That doesn't mean your cause of death is definitely going to be directly related to defending your faith in Him, but in the End Times, chances are, if you are a believer, it may very well be.

Revelation 12:11
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

 

I Peter 4:1
Arm yourself with decisions of suffering for Christ
in mind.

Some believers will die during the Great Tribulation, for failing to be prepared for the End Times though our loving Father gave us an awesome instruction manual within the Bible as to be able to endure the End Times and know what to do ... And NOT to do. 

Those who are not prepared, who fail to seek shelter in the wilderness may die, or many may die of things resulting from the horrific events that will be taking place.

In the last few paragraphs of this page, we will be talking a little more about antichrist, so let us get a little background information about him.

I will now ask that you choose to check out pages 5, 6 and 7 of Prepare 4 End Times, then return here and we will continue on.

I will see you there.

I truly hope you are taking this journey back and forth as to capture the whole essence of the End Times.

I'd like to clear up something that may be a question in your mind, that you may be too bashful to ask ... Is it okay to accept the mark, though in your heart, you really don't renounce your faith, you are just taking it to be able to get food or medicine or pay your bills for you and even your children? 

OR ...

Is it okay to take the mark if someone says they will kill you if you don't take it?

The answer is an emphatic ... ABSOLUTELY NOT!

There is NO valid reason to take the mark of the beast.

Revelation 14:9-12
If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus
.

What does Patience of the Saints mean?

It means events will occur which will test the Patience of the Saints.

Many different situations may arise in the End Times, that will test the patience of the saints and their FAITH will be tested so it is important to beware and know what may happen so one can be prepared and prepare others as well.

Keep in mind that the End Times and in particular the last three and a half years are the last days that satan has to try and steal as many souls as he can from God.

Revelation 12:12
Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

He will even try and deceive the chosen Christians who are left behind if he can.

Jesus shared this warning with us ...

Matthew 24:21-25
For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

BEHOLD, I HAVE TOLD YOU BEFORE.

Did you catch what Jesus said

Behold ... I have warned you before it happened.

Who are the elect who will be experiencing the great tribulation?

It is the Christians who are left behind.

In the End Times, those left behind will be fighting the good fight of FAITH.

This is the world of SPIRITUAL WARFARE and like it or not ...

YOU MAY BE RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF IT.

Satan will have many on his side, probably even search parties that go looking for Christians to give them his ultimatum of taking his mark and worshipping him ... Or die.

The Bible says that if you don't worship the beast or his image, or receive his mark on your forehead or in your hand, you may be beheaded.

Revelation 20:4 
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw
the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

I am not revealing this to you to scare you, but rather to prepare you, because if you give in because of fear, you end up in Hell, but if you stand firm in your FAITH, as you can see, you will reign with Christ for 1,000 years.

AFTER spending one thousand years in hell (During the Millennium that will be taking place on earth) those who take the mark or worship the beast and/or his image will be placed in the Lake of Fire.

Revelation 20:11-15
And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Let me also remind you, that when you're cast into the lake of fire, you don't die in there, but Jesus describes it many times in the Bible ...

There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Death doesn't mean that your soul no longer exists.

You still feel and experience the destiny that your life's choices will render ... FOREVER.

No matter what, don't take the mark!

I'm going to give you a very alarming example of how antichrist may try and CON-vince you to take the mark. Perhaps you're captured by someone working for antichrist, and while you're holding your infant child they tell you that if you don't take the mark, they will murder the child.

Here are your options:

IF you and your child take the mark you have just sentenced you and the child to the lake of fire, and they will probably murder your child anyway.

OR ...

You refuse to take the mark and both you and your baby may die, but will do so in the name of Christ and live with Him for 1,000 years during the Millennium without a single tear.

Prepare yourself for emotional tribulations like this, because antichrist will use ANY means he can to deceive AS MANY as he can. 

After reading the End Times study thus far ... Did you notice that many of the things that are discussed in the Bible concerning the first five seals are happening right now?

In some places, they're actually killing (beheading) Christians who don't agree to renounce Christianity. Don't be surprised if the things that you just read about and/or similar things just as atrocious start escalating in the VERY near future.

Let's get back to Christians dying during the End Times ...

As we discussed before most like to imagine ALL Christians being Raptured.

BUT ... Many scriptures prove that assumption to be incorrect.

Like this scripture which is deep into the End Times ...

Revelation 14:13
And I heard a voice from Heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead
which die in the Lord from henceforth
: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

Henceforth, means from this point on. The voice from Heaven declared this after the Revelation of the 7 Trumpets, so that means that these blessed people who die in the Lord (obviously Christians) die after the second rapture (which occurs at the sound of the 7th Trumpet).

I point this out again because these people weren't taken in a rapture, so they were definitely left behind, AND die in the name of Christ.

There is also an indication here that these people were veteran believers who were devoted to the cause, but could also be those who had recently been saved and enthusiastically sought to convert unbelievers, just like they were converted. They will be remembered for their heroism just as all of those who walked this path before us.

For some, dying is a frightful thought, no matter how or why you die.

Here's something to remember; for a Christian, when you die, God is setting you free of your fleshly body that has burdened you all your life. It is sinful in nature, it's heavy, it's weak, it's subject to the environment and disease and the defilement of the world.

Though it works against us, living as one with Christ, there's really only one way to live righteously with such a cumbersome obstacle ...

The Apostle Paul said:

Philippians 1:20-21 
According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.

For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

If death is something you fear, I urge you to check out this study:

God has taught us to fear NOTHING but Him.

2 Timothy 1:7 
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

1 John 4:16-18 
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.  Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

Psalms 56:3 
What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.

Remember, when the time comes, Jesus died for us.
To die for Him is an honor, not something to fear.

Romans 5:6-10
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

You haven't really lived, until you find something worth dying for.

My friend, Jesus is worth it.

If you're distressed about the thought of dying for Him ...

Perhaps you haven't really found Him yet.

Find Jesus ... And live!

There is still a third possibility of what can happen to Christians left behind during the End Times.
