Concerning the Rapture and the Judgment of God!!
The arrival of our Lord’s coming, which the scoffers are challenging was foretold in 2 Peter 3:3 “First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.”
Jesus is coming! Skeptics and scoffers deny that fact, but they can’t change the truth of it. Jesus is coming, and He is coming soon. This is not a childhood game! Eternity is at stake!
The scoffing here evidently relates to some who have an understanding of the hope of the Second Advent and who therefore believe that the Lord will return at some future date. The scoffing, moreover, arises in opposition to the view maintained by those who believe that His coming is imminent. In other words, it is a scoffing against the promise of His Presence soon to come in the Rapture and not against the promise of His second coming.
What seems long and short to men, is not long or short to the Lord. Therefore, any seeming delay of the Rapture is only such from a human point of view. The terrible days of the Tribulation Period, a time shortly coming upon this world. Even though this time is in the very near future, we can already see all the pieces falling into place. This world is preparing itself for the fulfillment of God’s prophecies. The signs are everywhere! Only the spiritually blind refuse to see what is as plain as day.
The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, that is, as some count slackness.
Jesus says that the generation that witnesses these things will not pass away until they have all been fulfilled. This prophecy has been the subject of much debate down through the years. How can a God for whom a thousand years is no longer than a single day be accused of slowness? There is also a second fact that is important to Peter’s refutation of the false teachers and those who scoffs at the word of God concerning the coming of Jesus. Not only is the Lord not slow about His promise of worldwide calamity, but He is longsuffering towards humanity.
God is in no way anxious to begin the judgments following Christ’s return. He is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish. What the Lord seeks from men while His judgment tarries is repentance. God’s wish, therefore, is that all should come to repentance. I truly believe that the Rapture delay is due to the fact that many are repenting and as a result, the judgment of the Day of the Lord is being averted.
A logical question that would naturally arise would be, why would Father God withhold the Day of the Lord, the Rapture of the Church if He knows that a worldwide repentance is impossible. The answer can only be that He knows it is not impossible. Matthew 19:26 “Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."
Undoubtedly God fully knows under what set of conditions mankind might turn to Him however briefly, and so long as there are options that are viable in His eyes, He will delay the promise of our Savior’s return. It is truly amazing to see how many people are coming to the Lord in these last days. I’m personally familiar with many theologians and End Time Watchmen who were one point more concerned with stocking up for the Judgment to come. These same people have now changed their tune. Yes God has changed their plans through a recent shift, now recognizing it is more important to prepare the masses spiritually, by submitting to Jesus than preparation to persevere in the storm with ammunition, guns, precious metals and ready to eat meals.
I will conclude with this, in Noah's days there was scoffing at the building of the ark, with all that it implied respecting the coming deluge. In this present day of our Lord's Presence there is again scoffing, as foretold by Peter in 2 Peter 3. All the pieces are in place. Everything is lining up like Jesus said they would. He is eternal and our destiny with our Lord Jesus Christ is the experience of eternal life. While He tarries, we will continue to call men to the knowledge of the Jesus, who loves them with magnificent patience. He is coming! Are you ready?

I AM SHAKING MY GLORY IN YOU,THROUGH YOU, ALL AROUND YOU IN THESE LAST HOURS OF THE LAST DAYS:Prophetic Message By Susan O'Mara - Prophetic Word given during the Meeting at SOG Church on 10-20-12:
The Lord speaks:
"I am moving in the earth, Children. I am moving in the heavens. I am moving even in the bowels of the earth. For I am bringing great change. I am bringing a great delight, even for you this night. For I am opening even My Chambers unto you. Step into My Chambers, for they are new. I have created them for you, and I am drawing you into the folds of My Garment. I want you to seek Me more. For as you do, My Life will pour, and I will unfold My Garment even more. For I have Chambers in store that I have desired to open and pour. But I have waited until My People would seek for more. For I do not give the precious to those that are not sincere. But I do give it to those that will draw near."
"The Changes I bring, will be in full swing by Spring, for you are in My Momentum. You are in the Cresting of My Wave. For I am moving quickly to heal, to deliver, and to save. I am moving in a great movement in the earth. Let My Chambers give birth! Open yourself to Me completely, and hold nothing in reserve! Abandon yourself to My will, and see the things that will come still, for I have Treasures for you. I have Treasures in the heavens. I have treasures in the earth, and I even have Treasures in the bowels of the earth, and as I shake all three, even the Treasures will come forth quickly, because I held them for this hour."
"Do not be moved by the shaking, but run to Me in this hour, for I am shaking My Glory in you. I am shaking My Glory through you. I am shaking My Glory out of you. I am shaking My Glory all around you, and I will shake, and shake, and shake, until everything is as I desire to make! For I am King, and I am changing everything! Rejoice in this day, Children, for I am coming in a stronger way, and I will show My Hand to you everyday, and you will laugh, and leap, and play in My Glory each day! For I have a Rest and a Liberty for you, that will refresh you, and strengthen you, and heal you, as you come into My Chambers with Me! You will move with great, great Liberty!"
Lord, we step into Your Chambers right now. We move in, Lord, we move in! We respond to Your Invitation! We move in, and we apprehend the greater part of Your heart! We thank you, Lord Jesus. We love You Lord. Thank you Father...
The Lord speaks:
"Walk not in the intensity of these days, but walk with Me, in all of My Ways. For though men think their up is up, and their down is down, I shall turn things all around. I shall remove those from higher ground, and they shall have to seek. But I shall exalt those from their humble seat, and the two shall not meet, for I am bringing a separation in this hour. But I say to you, do not look upon what you see, and think that is what will be the reality. But know that the Reality is Me! I am the one on the throne! I am calling My own! I am setting the stage! I will write you on My Page!"
"Move by my Spirit, and not by the things that you see and hear. Move by My Grace, and not by those that run in fear. Move by My Strength, and draw near! Move in My Joy! Move in My Rest! I know what I am doing, and through it all, you shall see My Best! I want My House to burn in Me. I want you as a Glorious Light of Liberty. I want you as a Pillar in this Region, shining bright with Me; giving Wisdom and Sight to all who will seek Me. Do not be shaken by My Shakings, but understand, I know what I am making, and you will see many things turn, even until Spring. But you are to remain fixed in Me, and know, that I know what I am doing. For My Glory is recreating. I am legislating, and I am establishing my Kingdom in the earth! And you, My Children, My People, My House, are giving birth! And My Glory shall indeed cover the earth!"

8 Hours in Heaven by Ricardo Cid
The Lord says, “I am sending this message to my people on the earth, because I exist in the heavenly realms.”
Revelations 4:1After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
Revelations 5:11And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing.
Please, church listen to what has happened to my life. In a dream, the Lord started dealing with me. I remember, in that dream, I walked out of my house. I walked on the streets in my neighborhood and I felt that someone lifted me up by my arms into the sky and I was running on the clouds and glorifying God. A great brightness came over me and a voice said out of that brightness, “Ricardo, Ricardo, quit your job because I want to do something with your life and with my church on the earth.” After hearing these words, I trembled violently and woke up from my dream. I got up and I started crying to God and asking, “What is this, Lord?”
This voice came to me very strongly. It occurred to me for many days. Then I laid to sleep again and had the same dream and the Lord repeated the same message to me. After repeated times, I would wake up screaming because God's voice would increase in volume each time. As I would wake up trembling, I would scream and my parents would ask, “What's the matter?” I would tell them about the dreams and my mother prayed for me and told me, “If the Lord is speaking to you, then He will give you understanding.” We continued praying all night long until it was time for me to go to work that next morning. My mother told me then to get ready and leave for work. We asked the Lord for a sign to let us know whether or not it was He who was talking to me. I took a shower, got ready, and went to work. I used to work at “Chile Laboratories”.
I really loved my job. I would get picked up at the bus station to go to work. When I got off of the bus, someone immediately told me, “What are you doing here? You aren't supposed to be in this place any longer.” In several occasions, others told me the same thing. The amazing thing is that they weren't born again. This is the sign that God gave me. After the sign, I decided to go to my boss to quit. I told him, “I must leave the company because God has commanded me to quit.” When the Lord commands, we MUST obey. My boss was concerned for me and asked, “What are you going to do? Where will you find another job as good as this one?” I told him that I had to obey God. So they had a large farewell reception of two thousand people for me. Afterwards, I gathered all of my things and went back home. As I arrived crying, my mother was already waiting for me at the front porch. I told her that I quit my job because the Lord confirmed my dreams through those people. She replied, “If the Lord spoke to you, then may He do with your life as He pleases.”
She and I went in the house talked until nightfall. Then, I told her I need to go to bed because God will talk to me tonight in a dream. I thought he was going to speak to me in a dream, but it didn't happen as I thought. But, he was going to deal with me in a different way. When I went into the bedroom and took off my clothes, the room started to shake. And I started shouting, “It's an earthquake that's hitting Santiago, Chile.” I tried to leave my bedroom, but someone invisible was stopping me from exiting through the door. I was able to see my mom and family across the room and I cried for help but no one could hear me. Now I know, this invisible being was the angel of the Lord. I stepped back and laid on my bed and cried out to God, begging for Him to tell me what's going on.
Then an audible voice spoke to me. The Holy Spirit began to speak to me in a most beautiful voice, saying, “Ricardo, now that you have left your job, I want you to go to the church and pray seven hours a day every day for your life, and for my church on the earth.” After the Lord stopped speaking, the room stopped shaking. I then stretched my hand through my doorway and found that I could leave the room again. Then I ran to my mother and shouted “I heard the voice of the Holy Spirit” and then left my home and started shouting that outside. Some people don't believe that God still talks to people today but I tell you it's true, He does speak to people! If the Lord could speak to Abraham, he can still talk to us, his church today! I went to the church and talked with the Bishop and we agreed to open the church at 8am every morning so that I could pray and obey God's command. Every morning, I would go to church and pray one hour, two, and by the third, I wouldn't have anything else to pray for and I'd ask God, “Lord, what else can I pray? I have four hours left!”
Then, I heard an underground rumbling starting from the back door of the church. I then felt the church swaying from left to right like a drunk person. During this sway, the Lord spoke to me audibly but not in the same voice as in the dream before. The voice He spoke to me before was with authority, this time, He spoke in a voice of sorrow. He said, “Ricardo, Ricardo pray for my church! My church isn't the same anymore!! My church on the earth has changed. My church has lost it's faith. My church doesn't believe in me or my existence! Tell my church that I exist!! Intercede for my church, because my church doesn't pray or fast anymore!” The shaking stopped after He finished speaking. I then started interceding and walking up and down the church for the remaining four hours begging for the people of God to revive.

OUR LORD IS LONGSUFFERING TOWARDS HIS PEOPLE by Sis.San Davis
Sermon Message posted 15 October 2012 in LORD JESUS UNIVERSAL SALVATION CHURCH by Sis. San Davis!
II Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
Precious saints of God, the Lord desires for all to come to Repentance. He is not slack concerning His promise of the Rapture or of the Judgment to come thereafter. The Lord is longsuffering toward His people, not willing that any should perish. As He delays, He desires that more will come to Jesus in full repentance.
The Rapture of the Church must be regarded as certain, also that God’s compassion is real and that man’s opportunity to repent is equally real. The point is simple. God delays in order to give all men a genuine opportunity to repent. The mercy is real because the opportunity for more to get saved and come into a true relationship with Jesus is real.
Romans 1:16 – 17, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written. The just shall live by faith.”
This text does not teach that God actually decrees that all will be saved, but those who “believe”. Obviously everything that a Sovereign God decrees will occur. The reference here is not to God’s decree but to His desire. God’s desire is that none should perish and that all would come to repentance. The Lord God has given man his own free will and does not forcibly impose His will but allows freedom to all people to come to repentance or not. Paul clearly teaches that only those who believe in Christ will receive salvation and the benefits of His sacrifice. God’s desire is not only our salvation, “justification” but also our growth in the truth“sanctification”.
