About the Day of the LORD
Rightly dividing the “RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH”
By Pieter Kirstein
People can believe what they want. I choose to believe the word and divine counsel of God according to the correct prophetic sequence of events.
See clearly that FIRST THERE SHALL BE A FALLING AWAY FROM THE FAITH and THE SON OF PERDITION MUST FIRST BE REVEALED, meaning we shall go through the tribulation. People twist the word of God to make it say what they want it to say.
He shall gather us after the time of tribulation because we have a massive harvest to reap before the Lord can come.
FIRST THE HARVEST
THEN ONLY HE COMES TO GATHER US
James 5: 7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, and has long patience for it, until he receives the early and latter rain. 8 Be also patient; establish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draws near.
2 Thessalonians 2:
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by ■our gathering together unto Him,
2 That you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, that the day of the Lord is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means:■ for that day shall not come, except there come the falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.
This is in agreement with what Jesus said in Matthew 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall grow cold.( See? First the falling away. The same as 2 Thessalonians)
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.(HE CALLED US TO ENDURE, NOT WAIT FOR A RAPTURE PRIOR TO REAPING THE HARVEST FIRST)
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15 When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, whoever reads, let him understand. (the son of perdition revealed but we are still here, the same as 2 Thessalonians)
16 Then let them who are in Judea flee into the mountains:
17 Let him who is on the housetop not come down to take anything out of his house:
18 Neither let him who is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that nurse a child in those days!
20 But pray you that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
The truth is crystal clear.
Now the truth about the “escaped ones” which are the people that shall be preserved until the coming of the Lord because obviously God needs an army within the earth to fulfill the great commission, IN AGREEMENT WITH ALL THE ABOVE, are also spoken of in Isaiah 4: 2 In that day shall the branch of the LORD be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and splendid for them that have escaped of Israel.
3 And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remains in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even everyone that is recorded among the living in Jerusalem:
4 When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from its midst by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.
5 And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a covering.
6 And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a shelter from storm and from rain
Can you see God’s covering of covenant protection upon the escaped ones?
This is in agreement with what Jesus said in Luke 21:35 For as a snare shall it (THE TRIBULATION) come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. (ON ALL NOT SOME)
36 Watch therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
Further the LORD revealed that the “escaped ones” shall be sent out throughout the earth to gather the end-time harvest of souls in Isaiah 66:19 And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those of them that escape unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the coastlands afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.(THIS ALL HAPPEN UNTIL THE TIMES OF THE GENTILES IS FULFILLED)
20 And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the LORD out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon camels, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, says the LORD, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD.
21 And I will also take some of them for priests and for Levites, says the LORD.
Then when our work is finished the following shall happen.
Matthew 24:27 For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines even to the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28 For wherever the body is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
Notice in verse 28 Jesus talks about the end-time forerunner eagle prophetic sons of God through whom the body of Christ shall be led to gather until the coming of the Lord
For wherever the body is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
This is the same as Luke 17:37 And they answered and said to him, Where, Lord? And he said to them, Wherever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.
God showed me an open eye vision about 3 years ago as a kingdom forerunner before He told me that it’s time to release the Melchizedek priesthood.
I looked up in the spirit and by the Spirit of God I saw a portal gateway open up right above me as I was lying on my bed and He showed me “THE GATHERING OF THE EAGLES.”
These are the end-time forerunner sons of God through whom the Father shall reveal heaven’s agenda.
Amos 3:7 Surely Yahweh will do nothing, but He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.
Also the gathering of these eagles was spoken of in Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Now we tie this whole revelation up to be confirmed in Joel and notice that this army is released in the time of the tribulation that shall release the harvest of souls through the latter rain outpouring of the Holy Spirit Spirit exactly as James instructed us to be patient until the farmer receives the early and latter rain.
Joel 2:2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread on the mountains: a great people and a strong; there has not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.(see this event also prophesied in Psalm 110)
3 A fire devours before them; and behind them a flame burns: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yes, and nothing shall escape them.
4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.
5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devours the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.
6 Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.
7 They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:
8 Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall on the sword, they shall not be wounded.
9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run on the wall, they shall climb up on the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.
10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
11 And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executes his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?
12 Therefore also now, said the LORD, turn you even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:
13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn to the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repents him of the evil.
14 Who knows if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering to the LORD your God?
15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:
16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare your people, O LORD, and give not your heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: why should they say among the people, Where is their God?
18 Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.
19 Yes, the LORD will answer and say to his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and you shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen:
20 But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill smell shall come up, because he has done great things.
21 Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things.
22 Be not afraid, you beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree bears her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength.
23 Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he has given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.
25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust has eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
26 And you shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that has dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.
27 And you shall know that I am in the middle of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.
28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit on all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
29 And also on the servants and on the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
30 And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.
32 And it shall come to pass, that whoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD has said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.
I urge you to ask the Lord about when our physical departure will ocur. Jesus said AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS not before.
The first rapture shall be a Spiritual catching up of the sons of God that unleashes the Governmental Authority of His Kingdom because creation must be liberated from it’s bondage to decay and corruption as Jesus himself declared to me because prophecy and scripture must first be fulfilled.
I am a kingdom forerunner and what I teach I have personally witnessed and experienced by the Spirit of God.
It should be commonsense that the life of Christ is the only means and pattern that is wrought into the sons of the kingdom and now the LORD has impregnated His bride with destiny to birth the end-time harvest of souls according to Isaiah 66 and we shall be caught up suddenly AS I WAS YEARS AGO WHILE AWAKE IN MY ROOM to be Spiritually brought before the throne of God and to be commissioned to fulfil the prophesied exploits of Daniel.
In that encounter the Father caused me to experience through a prophetic reality what Revelation 12 shall be like when the sons of God are revealed, which shall be His generals through which His army are taught, instructed and equipped.
Daniel confirmed that powerful Kingdom exploits shall be done during the reign of the anti-Christ in Daniel 11. Revelation 12-14 speaks of the same.
The bridal sons and daughters of God now should all expect the following event what God spoke to me with a audible voice in Isaiah 66: 7 Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.
8 Who has heard such a thing? who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.
9 Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? says the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? says your God.
10 Rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all you that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all you that mourn for her:
11 That you may nurse, and be satisfied with the breasts of her consolations; that you may drink deeply, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory.
12 For thus says the LORD, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream: then shall you nurse, you shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees.
13 As one whom his mother comforts, so will I comfort you; and you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.
14 And when you see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like the grass: and the hand of the LORD shall be known toward his servants, and his indignation toward his enemies.
15 For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.
16 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.
