What Happens When the Age of Grace Ends?
According to the Bible, we live in the age of grace. God is withholding His judgment because He does not want anyone to perish. But someday the period of grace will suddenly be over and it will be time to “pay the fine” for the wages of sin.
The Rapture of the Church will end the church-age and in the “twinkling of an eye,” the age of grace will be history. Gone Forever.
There will be no more pastors, no more elders, no more deacons and no more church services. They’ll be no more opportunity to give or serve in the church because the church-age and the age of Grace will vanish!
It began on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2) with the arrival of the Holy Spirit and it will end on the day of the Rapture as the Holy Spirit’s influence is removed by the rapture of the church (2 Thess. 2).
When that happens, it indicates God’s patience has run out and two things will occur. His grace will get replaced with a delusional spirit that assures man’s damnation and all the world is thrust into the age of His Wrath (2 Thess. 2:11-12).
Some might ask, “how can a loving God destroy the whole world?” It’s called justice.
We live in a very twisted world as you know, a world where everything is reversed. Dark has been substituted for light. Evil has been substituted for good. Bitterness has substituted for sweetness, to borrow the words of the prophet Isaiah (5:20).
In our twisted world, special categories of sin have become civil rights, and the most perverse iniquities are lauded as virtues.
But much like Noah’s day, God’s justice will intervene to punish man’s rebellion. That punishment will fall swiftly on this unsuspecting world in the coming 7-Year Tribulation.
The world’s first taste of God’s punishment and wrath comes at the hands of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
When it’s time for these four horses to move out, the voice in heaven invites the Apostle John to investigate them by saying, “Come and see.”

The Last Days People Are Here
2 Tim 3:1-3
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers… unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, SLANDERES
Did you notice that last word above? When the Apostle Paul listed the signs of what the last-days people would look like, he mentioned there would come slanderers.
We got a taste of how far slandering would go in the case of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. It’s dishonesty on steroids, without regard for who gets hurt and God says it will become part of our culture in the end times!
But the latest slandering against President Trump is downright evil. Without a shred of evidence the coup in the U.S. House of Representatives set sail to impeach the President. It should be called “impeachment by slander.”
President Trump is no more guilty of impeachable crimes for his phone call with the Ukrainian President than I am!
Trump will NOT be Removed
From office by Impeachment
It takes a two-thirds super-majority of U.S. Senators to convict in an impeachment trial.
That means as many as 19 of the current 53 Republican senators could defect to the dark side, and Trump still would not be removed from office.
All that is needed, constitutionally, is 34 votes to acquit.
This shows that the motivation behind the impeachment charade is to poison voters and damage the president’s reputation to make sure Trump loses his re-election bid to a socialist democrat next November.
Please pray for the President and America as we face the election in the year ahead and America’s Perfect Storm – Coming in 2020.

Jesus May Come Today!
The rapture is not merely a theological truth. It is also a practical truth with powerful implications for looking for Jesus. Scripture records numerous ways the rapture can impact our lives.
Paul told the Thessalonians to “comfort one another’ with the idea of the rapture (1 Thess. 4:18). As the world becomes more unhinged, believers can take comfort in the thought that Jesus may come today!
At any given moment, of any given day, we could be transformed and find ourselves standing in the presence of the King of kings and Lord of lords.
The rapture is a source of hope and comfort far beyond anything this world has to offer.
And since the rapture can happen at any moment, it should motivate us to be busy about our Father’s business.

How the Four Horsemen Of the Apocalypse Teach a Pre-Tribulation Rapture
One of the great promises to the church is that we are, “saved from the wrath to come” – 1 Thess. 1:10.
The context of this verse is very important. Paul is teaching the Thessalonian’s about the Rapture and the promise of being saved from the wrath of the coming Tribulation. That’s why we believe in a Pre-Tribulation rapture.
But in the last several decades, two new positions have developed regarding the timing of the Rapture: The Mid-Tribulation and the Pre-Wrath Rapture Theories.
I my view, both these theories suffer from the same error. They both teach that God’s wrath doesn’t show up in the first half of the Tribulation.
The purpose of our class is exposing this error by showing the true mission of the Four Horsemen in the first half of the Tribulation.
These four characters are nothing to be trifled with as they display the unmitigated wrath of God from day one of the 7-Year Tribulation.

Praying for President Trump
President Donald Trump met privately this Tuesday with 25 Christian leaders who came to the White House to affirm their support for the president amid the impeachment inquiry launched by House Democrats.
“We assured the President that evangelicals across America support him,” Pastor Jack Graham of Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas, told Fox News. “We are unwavering in our support for the president.”
Trump did not appear to dwell on the activities of House Democrats but preferred to talk about progress on achieving the agenda put forth by America’s faith leaders, according to those at the meeting.
“I have never seen a president more focused, more in command than what we saw with President Trump yesterday,” Ralph Reed, chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, told Fox.
“The primary purpose of the informal meeting with faith leaders Tuesday was for the president to brief faith leaders on the continuing, remarkable accomplishments of this administration — especially in areas that are important to evangelicals,” said Pastor Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church in Dallas, Tx.
“It was abundantly clear, he’s totally unfazed by this,” the Rev. Johnnie Moore, president of the Congress of Christian Leaders, said to Fox.
Graham said the group prayed for Trump.
“We prayed for the president, with thanksgiving, as always, that he would know God’s wisdom and strength as the president of the United States,” Graham told Fox.
Trump “always welcomes,” prayers for him, Graham said, and is ever “appreciative of the people who pray for him across the country.”
Moore noted the effort by House Democrats to push Trump from office is also, to faith leaders, an assault on the values that Trump’s evangelical supporters hold dear.
“Evangelical leaders see this, not as impeaching Donald Trump, but they’re trying to impeach me and my values,” Moore said.
“Donald Trump is pretty good at fighting alone — but he isn’t going to have to fight alone on this one.”
