GETTING READY! 

“. . . For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.” Rev. 19:7

"They Produce For Us A Glory!"
 
 
 
 

THANK YOU LORD, for the Faithful Covenant Partners and Friends of Jamie Carte Ministries!  Thank you for your Financial Support and Prayer Support!  Glory To God!  We are SO GRATEFUL TO THE LORD and TO YOU!  WE LOVE YOU AND APPRECIATE YOU SO MUCH and we are praying and declaring The Word over you daily!  Again, thank you for your love and support!

 

"In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. . . 14 And the Word (Christ) became flesh (human, incarnate) and tabernacled (fixed His tent of flesh, lived awhile) among us; " John 1:1,14 (AMPC)

   

 

Jesus IS The Word of God.  Think about that.  Jesus IS The Word of God.  The Word of God is Jesus.  Sometimes I believe the Christian World forgets that.  And what happens when people say they are Christians but yet are never in The Word of God or do not follow The Word of God, Who Is Jesus?  The result is people doing their own thing.  Following whatever someone tells them is right or wrong instead of The Word of God, Who Is Jesus.  You end up with people doing “whatever they believe” is right.  Which leads me into this Month’s Teaching which is a MAJOR TRUTH.

What will mark the TIME of The Lord's return?  Of course, no one knows the day or hour. (Matthew 24:36)  But we are to know the Season that we are living in.  We know that we are to know what Time we are living in because in Matthew Chapter 24 Jesus tells us what it will look like in the Last Days, including Israel becoming a Nation again. (Matthew 24:32-34)  If Jesus did not want us to know what the Last Days would look like He would not have described them so vividly.  Another great sign that will take place that The Bible tells us about is found in 2 Thessalonians Chapter 2.

2 Thessalonians 2:1,3 (AMPC) "But relative to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) and our gathering together to [meet] Him, . . . Let no one deceive or beguile you in any way, for that day will not come except the apostasy comes first [unless the predicted great falling away of those who has professed to be Christians has come], and the man of lawlessness (sin) is revealed, who is the son of doom (of perdition)."

         2 Thessalonians is very clear that The Word, Who Is Jesus (John 1:1,14) is telling us that this is a sign of what it will look like before The Lord Jesus Christ comes and we are gathered together TO MEET HIM . . . THIS IS THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH.  We know that The Lord is speaking to us about the Rapture for we are told in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 (NLV) a GREAT DESCRIPTION of the Rapture.

"Christian brothers, we want you to know for sure about those who have died. You have no reason to have sorrow as those who have no hope. 14 We believe that Jesus died and then came to life again. Because we believe this, we know that God will bring to life again all those who belong to Jesus. 15 We tell you this as it came from the Lord. Those of us who are alive when the Lord comes again will not go ahead of those who have died. 16 For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven with a loud call. The head angel will speak with a loud voice. God’s horn will give its sounds. First, those who belong to Christ will come out of their graves to meet the Lord7 Then, those of us who are still living here on earth will be gathered together with them in the clouds. We will meet the Lord in the sky and be with Him forever. 18 Because of this, comfort each other with these words."

         

         "When The Lord comes again," "To meet The Lord," "Will be gathered together," "We will meet The Lord," all of these words from 1 Thessalonians 4 are the same of what we see in 2 Thessalonians 2:1,3 also.  We are clearly seeing the timing of these two Scriptures and that is the Time of the Rapture of The Church.  And WHY IS 2 Thessalonians 2:1,3 SO IMPORTANT?  Because there is a sign from The Lord that will be happening at the Time of History of when the Rapture will be at hand!  Let's look at this again.
 

2 Thessalonians 2:1,3 (AMPC) "But relative to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) and our gathering together to [meet] Him, . . . Let no one deceive or beguile you in any way, for that day will not come except the apostasy comes first [unless the predicted great falling away of those who have professed to be Christians has come], and the man of lawlessness (sin) is revealed, who is the son of doom (of perdition)".

        

           In the Amplified Classic Translation (AMPC) it gives us insight to what the word "apostasy" means. “. . . for that day will not come except the apostasy comes first [unless the predicted great falling away of those who have professed to be Christians has come]."  In the (Easy To Read Version, ERV) it says it this way,

“Don’t be fooled by anything they might say. That day of the Lord will not come until the turning away from God happens . . . " 

2 Thessalonians 2:3 (ERV)

      

          There will be an “Apostasy" that will happen which is a "great falling away of those who have professed to be Christians." (2 Thessalonians 2:1,3 AMPC)  In many Translations and in the one above of the (ERV) it says, there is a "turning away from God" that happens.  So if people turn away from God, it will also mean to us that there will be a great falling away or turning away from The Word of God, which is The Lord, which is The Bible.  The Word of God IS GOD, HIMSELF!  THE WORD OF GOD IS JESUS, WHO IS GOD.  So people will "turn away" from God, The Word.  And this is a sign of what it will be like before the Rapture of The Church.  Beloved of God . . . this is happening now in our day!  So many places that people attended do not follow The Word of God.  I know that seems unreal, but it is real!  Many believe whatever they are comfortable with is right.  Some only do the parts of The Bible that they "agree" with.  Yet, people do not see that when they are turning away from The Word of God, they are turning away from God, Himself.  For, Jesus IS The Word!  And turning away from The Word of God is the result of Apostasy.  And as people and religious places begin to make their own rules and decide to do things their own way, more and more things will become acceptable to our society, not to God or His Will or Word, but to the culture.  Which is EXACTLY what we are witnessing in the World today!  To many, the Word of God is NOT first place in their lives.
 

Dissension Come First

 

“[That] No man deceive you in any manner. For but dissension come first [For no but departing away, or dissension, shall come first], and the man of sin be showed, the son of perdition,” 

2 Thessalonians 2:3 (WYC)

        

           2 Thessalonians 2:1 is talking about when Jesus comes in the Rapture.  Yet, The Bible says that there will be two things that will come first in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 and that is that FIRST there is a great falling away of people and also the Anti-Christ, the son of perdition, the son of doom will be showed or revealed in the Earth.
