The Meaning of the Tribulation that God Foretold

God foretold that there would be seven years of great tribulation confronting Humanity at the time of the last days. The period of great tribulation is the time when all saints must face the agonizing difficulties Heaven endured throughout the course of restoration history. As all human relationships will be broken down, you will face circumstances where you cannot trust anything. No matter how much you try to live your life conscientiously and righteously, you cannot insist on your way of life. The more consciously you embrace God’s Will and contemplate about the world, the more pain and suffering you will feel as you observe the world. Such a time will be the seven-years of great tribulation in the last days.

It will be a time when all hopes will be shaken, the core of your faith will waver, and the leaders whom you have followed will vacillate. Not only ideologies, but also religions, consciences, and hearts of parents will be shaken. Then, why would God make such a world at the time of the last days? It is because God wants to give the special value that you can truly participate with Him in His suffering history. God has witnessed a vast number of human miseries throughout the past 6,000 years and faced countless difficulties. Therefore, in the last days, He puts you through the environment where you cannot find the center with any ideology or faith. God wants to find true sons and daughters who will be able to say “I love God,” or declare, “I will live with God” even in the midst of such tribulations and difficulties.

Knowing this, you should not be discouraged and mournful when you witness the church trembling to its core, nor should you be sorrowful seeing that the leading ideology is no longer believable. You should not be shocked, seeing that a governing leader is fallen. You should not be sad that your parents have changed, nor that your brothers and sisters end up completely different.

Even if everything that you believed and trusted in is in turmoil, your heart should remain calm. You must know that God is never in turmoil and that He will visit you at this hour. Also, know that God only makes you suffer so that one day He will build a precious relationship with you as you share the pain and suffering He has experienced throughout history. Thus, tribulation is His promise to do so. God needs such a time so that He can find a person, even in a most difficult situation, embracing Heaven and crying out, “I will go wherever You go. I will fight on with You. I will take action with You!”

Therefore, you should not despair, saying that your path is blocked. Do not be disheartened that your nation is in turmoil. God is not dead. No matter how terrible the world becomes, you should not be dejected. Remember, God is not dead. God will definitely visit you. Although everything on earth is crumbling, you must not waver in your single-minded devotion to Heaven. You must not change your inner hope that comes from relying on God. To see your unchanging heart, God pushes you into many kinds of difficulties and sufferings.

You must have conviction in your heart that you will call out to your Heavenly Father even when facing unbearable situations. Even if you feel you have fallen to the bottom of the deepest valley, you must make every effort to climb up, using only a string that connects you with Heaven in your heart. Even though you feel bitterness and pain, as if you were falling into Hell, you must poise yourself to attending your Heavenly Father, concerned with your Heavenly Father’s pains and sufferings before your own. Believing that Heavenly Father realizes your personal pain and anguish, if you push forward – no matter how miserable your situation – with a sense of responsibility and duty, you will never perish.

Today, there are millions of Christians in the world, but how many of them has such a faith? We are attending our Heavenly Father, not at His Throne, but attending Him as he struggles in deadly waves of storms, trying desperately to find His sons or daughters. You must realize the reality of such a Heavenly Father as your Heavenly Father, such a situation is His situation, and such a desperate heart as His heart.

Then you must stand boldly before Him with conviction to proclaim, “I now come to understand that Your Desire is to find your sons and daughters, that Your Situation is to find your lost children, resolving Your historical pains and sufferings and that Your Heart is to love your lost children by embracing them. So, no matter how bitter the suffering or unbearable the difficulties I face, I declare that I am a Manifestation of Your Desire, Your Situation, and Your Heart.” You must understand that once you make that commitment, you are Your Heavenly Father’s child and responsible to attend Him.

Let go of the past

How many time has Heavenly Parent thought to let go of the past?

Though He is omnipotent, He is the most vulnerable in the realm of love – and the Ideal was corrputed, long ago.

So many believes nowadays, there must have been some kind of flaw in the Creation, or it is a mere concept never to reach. Some even says, the balance requires bad, too…

Looking at the Nature, the real harmony, the structures and flows behind every movement, relationship, connection we can see the patterns. One of the most fundamental is to live for the higher purpose, for the unity of the two the one forgets about oneself and through this volunteer way, living for the sake of others, the one will gain even more what he or she gave at first. If we have no expectations to receive anything in return, since we realize we can only complete ourselves when we act for someone else with the right mindset and attitude, we will be Blessed by Heavenly Parent, the Nature and the people aorund.

Even if we can not see the development directly, all the good deeds will come back to us in a higher, more mature level changing and altering our future for the better. No good deeds will ever be forgotten.

As the tree protects the bush from the heat, the bush protects the tree with keeping more water in the soil. And together they can offer a shelter to several different lifeforms, who fertilize the area to let the tree and the bush be more complete.

This can be applied in human relationships, too. It should be applied.

Can God, our eternal Heavenly Parent forget He was betrayed, He is being called in names, He has been ridiculed and basically kicked out from the life of His supposed to be children?

No, He can’t.

He is the one with the greatest heart and mind, He is the one to suffer the most…

…but He also wishes to be happy, the happiest in the world, since He is the most capable to do that, too.

He forgives. He will never forget since He has the greatest memory in the Universe.

He will forgive since He has the greatest ability to do that. Even if He has been betrayed and made suffer for thousands, tens of thousands of years, He will forgive in a moment and be the most joyous when any of us say: Sorry, I was wrong. Many things I made were wrong, I realize now, and so many I can’t even think of, I most probably failed. I’m sorry. I will do better, I will grow, with Your guidance and help. You have always supported me and my family, despite all the failures You have never left. Please, stay and witness how I will become a better person who can manifest the core of the Universe, the patterns You show me in the living study book called Nature. I will be as great as I meant to be, beyond my own concepts and beliefs. You’ve trusted me, now I will trust You. Let me grow, and please, help me in that. If there is pain on the path, please, give me comfort, when there is happiness let me share my joy with You! Let me surprise You to become a fully grown, mature person, a responsible, caring one, who can and will inherit Your heart, Father! Come with me in this journey, let’s start and re-start together, as long as it takes, I will never let You go! I will let the past go, but not You! Stay, please stay and be the meaning of my everydays! Protect my children and their future and let me be your instrument in that! I can be the masterplan, for You and for the people in the world, for the whole Creation. I trust You, so I can trust this will work. Join me Father in the light, join my Father in the night! And if I fail, I will stand up again and find a better way. I will persevere. I will persevere, because of You, Father. You are my Father! You are my Father!

 

This way God, our Heavenly Parent will let the past go and we will be able to do so, too.

Say the prayer loud, maybe more than once.

He is there. Waiting for you, waiting for us.

Let’s go to Him!

Temptation

As I Can See

Never, when you have been tempted, say, “God sent the temptation”; God
cannot be tempted to do anything wrong, and he does not tempt anybody.
Everyone who is tempted is attracted and seduced by his own wrong desire.
Then the desire conceives and gives birth to sin, and when sin is fully grown, it too
has a child, and the child is death.
Make no mistake about this, my dear brothers: it is all that is good,
everything that is perfect, which is given us from above; it comes down from the
Father of all light; with him there is no such thing as alteration, no shadow of a
change. By his own choice he made us his children by the message of the truth
so that we should be a sort of first fruits of all that he had created.

James 1:13-18

Some demands made by life in community

As I Can See

We appeal to you, my brothers, to be considerate to those who are working
among you and are above you in the Lord as your teachers. Have the greatest
respect and affection for them because of their work.
Be at peace among yourselves. And this is what we ask you to do, brothers:
warn the idlers, give courage to those who are apprehensive, care for the weak and
be patient with everyone. Make sure that people do not try to take revenge;
you must all think of what is best for each other and for the community. Be
happy at all times; pray constantly; and for all things give thanks to God,
because this is what God expects you to do in Christ Jesus.
Never try to suppress the Spirit or treat the gift of prophecy with contempt;
think before you do anything – hold on to what is good…

Rich Christians

As I Can See

Warn those who are rich in this world’s goods that they are not to look down
on other people; and not to set their hopes on money, which is untrustworthy,
but on God who, out of his riches, gives us all that we need for our happiness.
Tell them that they are to do good, and be rich in good works, to be generous
and willing to share – this is the way they can save up a good capital sum for
the future if they want to make sure of the only life that is real.

1 Timothy 6:17-19

A warning for the rich and self-confident

As I Can See

Here is the answer for those of you who talk like this: “Today or tomorrow,
we are off to this or that town; we are going to spend a year there, trading, and
make some money.” You never know what will happen tomorrow: you are no
more than a mist that is here for a little while and then disappears. The most
you should ever say is: “If it is the Lord’s will, we shall still be alive to do this or
that.” But how proud and sure of yourselves you are now! Pride of this kind is
always wicked. Everyone who knows what is the right thing to do and doesn’t
do it commits a sin.
Now an answer for the rich. Start crying, weep for the miseries that are
coming to you. Your wealth is all rotting, your clothes are all eaten up by
moths. All your gold…
