How To Be Hidden in the Day of Wrath

.

.

.

.

.

.

“Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers,

and shut thy doors about thee:

hide thyself as it were for a little moment,

until the indignation be overpast.

For, behold, the LORD cometh out of His place

to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity:

the earth also shall disclose her blood,

and shall no more cover her slain”

Isaiah 26:20, 21

.

 “O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths”

Isaiah 3:12

https://theheavensdeclare.net/the-fleeing-revelation-12-woman-constellation-the-message-of-habakkuk/.

For those who have finally arrived at the stark realization that God isn’t going to Rapture the Church out of the world, just prior to all Hell breaking loose in the final conflict, the following question must be answered: “How can I be hidden from the wrath to come?”

.

Yes, there are many sincere Christians who are now coming to the realization that they had been deceived by their teachers into believing that God’s people would be literally removed from the earth, just prior to the Book of Revelation being fulfilled.

.

And now that “all Hell is breaking loose”, right before our very eyes, it is becoming increasingly difficult to cling to this phantom church-doctrine, based upon the non-existent, non-biblical title, “The Pre-Tribulation Rapture”!

Now this website has numerous articles which reveal the true interpretation of Revelation, and the two beasts which arrive on the world stage. And those “Noble Bereans” who wish to search these things out are invited to begin such a quest for truth.

“When righteous men do rejoice, there is great glory: but when the wicked rise, a man is hidden.”

Proverbs 28:12 

http://www.muskegonartmuseum.org/collections-gallery/gallery.

But this particular article is dedicated to those who are striving to be hidden in the day of God’s anger. And by carefully reading this article, one can learn just how and just where to build the perfect shelter from the approaching storm.

.

The people of the world, who call themselves “Preppers”, know how to build bunkers. They know how to supply their food water, air, money, ammunition, self-defense, etc., so as to be safe during the soon-coming storm.

.

And it might be wise to observe what these “Preppers” do and apply it spiritually for the benefit of all of God’s people who happen to be, “Spiritual Preppers”.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

https://theheavensdeclare.net/woman-flees-to-the-wilderness/.

Now, the first step in becoming safe and well-hidden during the approaching crisis is to choose the perfect location for one’s spiritual bunker. Location is of utmost importance! It cannot be stressed enough, just how critically important is the choosing of one’s bunker location for his or her safety and survival! And, many preppers opt for some mountainous hideaway.

.

Listen to Scripture’s advice…“Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?…He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure. Thine eyes shall see the King in His beauty: they shall behold the Land that is very far off. ” Isaiah 33:14, 16, 17

.

As you can see from this passage, just how important it is to choose a mountainous location, even one which has a view of “the Land that is very far off”! And the “munitions of rocks” (Bible verses) are also a must as a place of defense!

.

And listen to this next verse…But they that escape of them shall escape, and shall be on the mountains like doves of the valleys, all of them mourning, every one for his iniquity.” Ezekiel 7:16

.

This above passage from Ezekiel describes the very time we’re now entered into. It is a time of repentance and mourning for the past years of our foolish mingling with the world. And it speaks of fleeing to the mountains, just like the first three Gospels likewise speak of fleeing…And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.” Luke 21:20, 21

https://theheavensdeclare.net/woman-flees-to-the-wilderness/

.

These two passages both say the same thing, howbeit, in spiritual allegorical language. God’s people realize that they and their children have been led astray by the secular world and by worldly Christians. But God now calls His true sheep to, “Come out of her, My people, that ye partake not of her sins, and receive not of her plagues” Revelation 18:4

.

And so, these verses (plus many more similar verses in Scripture) all tell us to, “escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.” Genesis 19:17

.

And so, the absolute best possible location for God’s people is in mountainous strongholds!

.

WALKING THROUGH DANGEROUS MINE-FIELDS, ETC….

.

Every “Prepper” knows the importance of making a safe pathway to his or her mountainous stronghold. And also, a good map and trusty compass are essential items to carry on this uphill climb to safety.

.

And the spiritual prepper likewise knows that traveling during this time of trouble can be very dangerous. And so, a very critically important part of making it through to safety is to have a safe route, guide-map and compass for this uphill trek. 

.

Listen…“Concerning the works of men, by the Word of Thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.” Psalm 17:4 

.

Here is the map and compass which the spiritual prepper needs to safely journey through the many obstacles which undoubtedly will be encountered!

.

Listen again…“Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” 2nd Peter 1:4 

.

Again, it is through the many “exceeding great and precious promises” found in God’s Word, that the spiritual prepper can safely navigate through the pitfalls, evil beasts, and other such lurking dangers along this upward path.

BUILDING THE BUNKER

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Opera_4.7Braies.JPG.

Now, once we establish our mountainous location, comes the rather laborious process of building our shelter, our bunker. And most preppers will spend much time and energy building their bunker.

.

Of course, the King James Bible does not use the name, “bunker”. Instead, we read of “chambers”. Listen…“Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.” Isaiah 26:20

http://www.muskegonartmuseum.org/collections-gallery/gallery.

Here is a warning from God to enter into our chambers till the “indignation” is passed over. Sounds like a storm shelter, doesn’t it?

.

Well, in a very real sense, it is a shelter from the storm…“Behold, a King shall reign in righteousness…And a Man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.” Isaiah 32:1, 2

.

Here is established the necessity for a bunker, that is, a shelter from the approaching time of trouble.

 FRESH AIR SUPPLY

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Filtered_Air_Mover_with_Pressure_Switch.jpg.

Now, when building our bunker, our shelter, three things are necessary: food, water, and air. Every wise prepper understands the necessity of these existential elements.

.

So let’s explore just what must be done to supply an abundance of fresh air…“The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” John 3:8.

.

So here is where our supply of fresh air comes from, just as it is written…“And when He [Jesus] had said this, He breathed on them, and said unto them, Receive ye the Holy Spirit’” (John 20:22).

.

Here is the very best and purest air supply one can obtain for this coming tribulation!

PURE WATER SUPPLY

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:A_Family_of_Deer_in_a_Landscape_with_a_Waterfall.jpg.

The next step in construction of our bunker, is to have an abundant supply of pure water…

“He that believeth on Me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” John 7:38

Here is the best possible means of having fresh, clean, and pure water.

.

Here is a fantastic way to get all the water you could ever wish for…“But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” John 4:14

.

And of course, we can’t forget that wonderful promise from Isaiah 33:16…He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.

.

And so, these passages assure us that water should not be a problem at all!

FOOD STORAGE

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Emergency_Rations01a.jpg.

There are numerous companies advertising emergency-food-supply-kits for those “Preppers” who see the importance of being prepared for whatever crisis comes their way. And the “Spiritual Prepper” must likewise imitate those preppers of the world, who prepare themselves for emergencies.

.

And so, every wise prepper must have an abundant supply of food to make it through the approaching crisis: such foods as “the bread of life”, “the fruit of the Spirit”, and “the milk of the Word”, as well as “the meat of the Word”. (John 6:48, Galatians 5:22, 1st Peter 2:2, Hebrews 5:13, 14)

AMMUNITION

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Salpa_line_bunker_360_antitank_gun_outside.jpg.

Every wise Prepper knows the importance of being well-armed. A large cache of weapons such as rifles, knives, hand-guns should be properly stored to defend against whatever enemy comes against them. But the Spiritual Prepper fully understands that, The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.” 2nd Corinthians 10:4

.

Yes, the Spiritual Prepper should have “two swords” (i.e., The Old & New Testaments…Luke 22:38).

.

Ephesians 6 likewise refers to them as “the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God”. But the Prepper also needs, “the shield of faith in which to extinguish the fiery darts of the wicked one”. Along with the “breastplate of righteousness, and the helmet of Salvation”, that Spiritual Prepper should be prepared for any attack from the enemy! (see Ephesians 6 for these verses)

STORING UP A GOLD & SILVER RESERVE

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Goldkey_logo_removed.jpg.

No wise Prepper would neglect to have a supply of silver and gold on hand, and the Spiritual Prepper should likewise have his or her own supply of spendable riches…

.

Listen…“Acquaint now thyself with Him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee. Receive, I pray thee, the law from His mouth, and lay up His words in thine heart….Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks. Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defence, and thou shalt have plenty of silver.” Job 22:21-25

.

Here is all the gold and silver you will need through the coming crisis! The Word of God!

SELF DEFENSE

.

Today’s Preppers know the importance of self-defense. And as the crisis worsens they realize that hand-to-hand combat may become their only means of survival. Taekwondo, Karate, fisticuffs, kick-boxing, are just a few of the ways in which Preppers prepare for the coming crisis.

.

And those who are Spiritual Preppers understand that the art of wrestling will definitely be required in the coming days and months…“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Jacob_Wrestling_with_the_Angel.jpg

Yes, our skill and perseverance in the art of wrestling will become a necessity in the near future. Even one of our spiritual fathers, Jacob, “wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.” Genesis 32:24 And God used Jacob as a picture of our soon-coming engagement! (read the article, Today’s Devotional – July 13th (Time of Jacob’s Trouble, Part 1: “Alone With God!”))

.

Yes, the Spiritual Prepper must learn to perseveringly wrestle in the prayer, faith, and patience, which will all be required to make it through the long night ahead!

.

The Enemy will attempt to discourage the Spiritual Prepper to the point of giving up. And so, it will be necessary to wrestle with the Angel of the Lord for blessing and strength to persevere until the Dawning of the Day!

1st John 5:4  

.

Now this little exercise in spiritualizing the things of the world, converting them into Heavenly truths, gives us a wise plan for the coming conflict. And yet, we have a precious promise for our assured victory…“Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:” Philippians 1:6 

.

Yes, our victory is sure, because that victory was won on our behalf on the hill called Calvary!

GOD’S PEOPLE TAKEN CAPTIVE

.

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her (Babylon), My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4 

.

The Pleiades: Mystery Babylon: Mother of Harlots

.

God has a people in Babylon. Yes, Mystery Babylon is the Mother of Harlots. The sketch to the left shows her riding this beast with 7 heads and 10 horns.

.Captive Angel Constellation

But in that spiritual city, there are those who still love God to a certain degree. And before the final plagues are poured out upon her, God has been and will continue to call His people out of her… “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her (Babylon), my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4

.

And so in addition to The Pleiades appearing as the Harlot Mother, we also see this second depiction of The Pleiades as an angel, which symbolizes God’s people, walking the downward pathway to destruction. They must be called out of Babylon before it’s too late!
