Christ's coming for His Bride

Some may not realize this, but not all believing Christians belong to the Bride of Christ, similar to that not all sports men excel in the Olympics; and that not all students earn a scholarship award. It are those that follow the Lamb wherever He goes, and who are filled with the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity.

The belief that the church will be delivered from the Tribulation is based in part on the Biblical pattern that when God pours out His wrath He always gives opportunity for the righteous to escape it. This was true of Noah and his family, of Sodom and Gomorrah in the days of Lot, and even of the pagan Ninevites to whom Jonah was sent.

The pre-Tribulation position is the best from this point of view. If the Rapture takes place before the Tribulation, we can truly expect it "any day." If it is delayed to the middle or end of the Tribulation, we could not honestly have that expectation now.

JESUS said: But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; SO SHALL ALSO THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN BE. Matthew 24:37-39

So shall the Bride of Christ be lifted up in a twinkling of an eye, before all hell breaks loose. AMEN! The Sanctified followers will be caught up and meet Jesus in the sky. Jesus gave his followers that precise example, to be rescued as Noah was. Jesus knew what had happened then and He knows what will happen at His return. AMEN! JESUS COMES FOR HIS BRIDE! Those who have OIL in their vessel; the Holy Spirit of GOD!

For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted WORTHY TO ESCAPE all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Luke 21:35,36 (ESCAPE is referred to the Rapture).

And to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus, which DELIVERED us from the WRATH to come. 1 Thess 1:10

Because thou hast kept the word of My patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 
Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Revelation 3:10,11

Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: He preserveth the souls of His saints; He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.  Psalm 97:10

And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of Thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time Thy people shall be DELIVERED, every one that shall be found written in the book. Daniel 12:1

Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is. 
And every man that hath this hope in Him purifieth himself, even as He is pure. 1 John 3:2,3

All the above shows the "ESCAPE ROUTE", as the five wise virgins knew, who had all the OIL (Holy Spirit) needed to enter into Wedding Feast. The five foolish virgins lacked OIL and missed the Wedding Party. They were not so concerned and dedicated to meet that which was needed to enter.

Therefore, those who don't live up to God's requirements cannot be caught up at the time which ONLY THE FATHER KNOWS, of meeting Jesus in the air in a twinkling of an eye. 

Those who stay behind will go through the GREAT TRIBULATION, of which time Jesus told His disciples "to be counted worthy to escape".

Out of the Great Tribulation will come a large crowd, which cannot be counted, who came through tremendous persecution and onslaught, who suffered for the name of Jesus. They are the ones laying under the Altar.

And when He had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: Revelation 6:9

God's word does not say that the Child of God will not suffer or being persecuted. The past and present time shows that indeed followers of Christ encounter suffering. This may be compared with throwing a stone to a sheep who wanders from the flock, or as a reminder to walk carefully and to exercise one's faith, for example.

But the GREAT TRIBULATION is FIERCE, something which NEVER has been and NEVER WILL happen again, according to the words of Jesus.

The Bride of Christ will be snatched away before that grotesque and terrible day.
Be ready and prepared! His coming in the clouds will be a ONE TIME event.


Be blessed in Jesus,

His servant,

Teach us, Lord

The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted. 
It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me. 
He delivereth me from mine enemies: yea, Thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me: Thou hast delivered me from the violent man.
Therefore will I give thanks unto Thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and sing praises unto Thy name.
Great deliverance giveth He to His king; and sheweth mercy to His anointed, to David, and to His seed for evermore. Psalm 18:46-50

For Thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness. 2 Samuel 22:29

Make those words, David and Samuel uttered, your own. This is one secret of the Word of God... grab it, take it and declare it. God's Word is yours to be used as long as your action glorifies the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

The Lord is our All in All. He is our everything.
If we come to know ourselves we'll soon learn how weak we are in our own strength. We will stumble and fall, but it is He who pulls us up and strengthens our feeble legs.

There is no glory in us, whatever good we possess comes from above. By His grace we are walking and we're seeing God's truth through His eyes. 
We were blind but now we see. Thank You, Jesus.

Together we declare Him as the Master and Designer of our life. 
Giving Him the reigns will keep us on the path of righteousness.
What a wonderful God and Father we serve.
Soon we will see Him face to face. What a glorious Hope we have. 
There is not enough time in this life to praise Him and thank Him for what He has done for us.

Dear Lord, teach us I pray to follow after Your will and to bring all our cares before You. 
We love You and adore You. To You belongs all our praise. 
You are our awesome Friend and Lord.
For Thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory for ever and ever. AMEN!

A servant of the King,

The Words you speak!

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in Thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Proverbs 18:21

Dear Lord,
Give me a heart so full of Your love and peace that I only speak words that bring life and not death to the people and situations I am addressing. 
Let the words of my mouth always be wise and fair. 

May Your laws and commandments be so engraved on my heart that goodness and righteousness are the fruit of my lips.

I know that I will always be on solid ground with You, and I will not get off the path You have for me, if I live Your way. 

Help me to carefully guard the words I speak so that they always glorify You.

I pray, for Your sake. AMEN!

Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man. Colossians 4:6

So shall My word be that goeth forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. Isaiah 55:11

For the glory of the Father.
Hidden in Him,

God has spoken...

Beloved family of God,

I am moved to tears, as the Holy Spirit speaks to my soul, and as I experience the sincerity of the time we are living in. I cannot write down what I sense, because words will not explain it. 

I receive a message in the Spirit and it is far from a joke. It concerns lives and souls of people I know, family, friends, neighbours... where will they be as God's time is full, as the "clock" has reached the last hour. 
I have searched for the lost, have presented the Saviour, have prayed with and councelled those in need, have for many years tirelessly worked for the Kingdom of God, as the Father guided me. I am outright weeping as my life is nearly over and there is still so much to be done. 

I have faced horrendous challenges in my life, some far beyond any imagination, I have been crushed to the core at one point, 
but Christ Jesus always came to rescue me. He gave me strength to continue for what He called me to do and I have been committed to continue. 
After the flesh I would have been gone long ago, but the Father raised me up again and again. It is through His strength alone that I conquered the enemy of my body and soul.

It is because of His Hand upon my life that I survived the hurdles. Therefore I want to openly PRAISE HIS NAME, for I am not worthy to be called His child and His servant, but through His tremendous love and mercy He did sent Jesus, His Son to rescue me and set my feet on the solid rock so I cannot be moved but walk according to His will. 
Thank You, Lord!

Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: He preserveth the souls of His saints; He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness. Psalm 97: 10-12

What stirred my soul today is due to a prophetic message I received through an unusual happening some five years ago.

May the blessings of the Lord stir up your soul and refresh your spirit. AMEN!

In the love of Christ,
Minister Dr. Trudy Veerman
