Tribulation Saints—Saved By Faith

May 10, 2023

Share this article:


We’ve discussed in the past the fact that at the time of Christ the Jews would go to synagogue every Saturday to read Old Testament scriptures written on scrolls. They had a specific start and stop point so that once a year they would have read through the entire Pentateuch—Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.

At the end of the year they would re-roll the scroll back to Genesis and start over. They would also read through portions of other books in the psalms and the prophets and roughly every five years they would read the entire Old Testament.

So it’s interesting that they would hear the account of God creating the world in six literal days 40 times by the time they were age 50 or so. As well as hearing God's inspired account of Noah and the worldwide flood. They would be steeped in the miracles of Moses and the Red Sea.

They took the Bible literally and they believed that in each verse the Lord was talking to them personally. They believed all the recorded miracles to be literal… like the account of Jonah being swallowed by a huge fish.

But [Jesus] answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation craves for a sign; and yet no sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonah the prophet; for just as JONAH WAS THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS IN THE BELLY OF THE SEA MONSTER, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth." Matt. 12:39-40

Redundancy, reading and rereading scripture is apparently a big deal to the Lord in Bible teaching, so I'm going to be redundant here on the subject of how people get saved in the Tribulation.

I keep hearing the same question about how people can get saved in the Tribulation if there is no Holy Spirit on the earth.  I’ve discussed this in the past but apparently need to hit the highlights again.

The answer is pretty simple… After the Rapture, they get saved the same way people got saved before the Rapture—by faith. Read Hebrews 11.

They get saved the same way they did prior to the cross (a different dispensation), people had faith that the Lord would save them with a future Messiah/Redeemer. After the cross people had faith that the Lord would save them via Jesus the Messiah Who came and paid for their sins.

After the Rapture, in the Tribulation, people will also have faith that Jesus the Messiah had come to save them.

Here’s a proof-text verse... think about what Jesus is saying here:

“But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper (God’s Holy Spirit) will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you." John 16:7

Therefore it was mandatory that Jesus ascend to heaven, leave the earth, to enable God’s Spirit to come to earth post-cross and indwell those who get saved.

And therefore, the reverse would also be true. The Holy Spirit must depart in order for Jesus to return to earth. After the Rapture Jesus first shows up on Mount Zion teaching the 144,000.

Then I looked, and behold, the Lamb [Jesus] was standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His name and the name of His Father written on their foreheads. Rev. 14:1

The green line below represents Jesus …on earth before the cross... in heaven until after the Rapture.

Jesus standing on the earth could not happen unless the Rapture happened first. Sorry mid- and post-tribbers, that leaves no room for anything but pre-Tribulational Rapture.

Jesus charges these 144K to evangelize the world. The next thing we read is that they are quite successful in their evangelism effort.

After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, Rev. 7:9

These Jewish evangelists convince uncountable numbers that it’s better to die as a Believer and go to heaven with Jesus than to go along with the Satanic system, with Satan running things on earth.

“These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." Rev. 7:14

“For this reason, they are before the throne of God; and they serve Him day and night in His temple; and He who sits on the throne will spread His tabernacle over them. They will hunger no longer, nor thirst anymore; nor will the sun beat down on them, nor any heat;" Rev. 7:15-16

They get saved and they go to heaven when they die, but the Holy Spirit is not on earth and never once indwelled them.

It is quite the privilege to be indwelled by the Holy Spirit on conversion. A privileged few Believers fully understand today. Adam was indwelled, but he was created that way. Then he sinned and God’s Spirit departed his and Eve’s life. I can't imagine what that would have been like.

Only after the cross were people able to be permanently indwelled by God’s Spirit immediately at salvation. And after the Rapture, it won’t happen again, no indwelling Spirit will show up.

But people still get saved by faith, just like the Old Testament saints.




Border Problems Times A Million



This could be the end of the southern border. It is estimated that some 700k non-Americas are ready to rush the border when Title 42 ends Thursday, May 11, 2023. It may be the beginning of a true national disaster. Read this short article for a quick overview of what is going on. This could be big.

Controlling The Planet VIA Heath



The Globalists/Satanists are trying their best to utilize the control of health to control the world. But experts are raising questions about the One Health concept, including the need for a global surveillance system and va((ine passports that can be used to restrict human travel and behavior. Hmmm….

For more background on this worldwide movement, in case you missed earlier articles, CLICK HERE

If you're motivated to take action, here's a link to contact your representative.



Cell Phones / Cell Towers Causing Cancer

2-Minute Video


A study found a spatial relationship between cancer death rates and cell phone towers. The closer people were to the towers, the higher the incidence of death by cancer. “It was quite dramatic.” This video also shows why you should NEVER carry your cell phone against your body.

U.S. Depleting Military Supplies In Israel



The Biden regime is send huge amounts of U.S. military supplies in Israel to the Ukraine, depleting our ability to defend Israel if necessary. Taking a stand against Israel will cause many, many, many to burn in hell. They have no clue.

And I will bless those who bless you (Israel), and the one who curses you I will curse. Gen. 12:3

Ok, granted, this is near the outer limits. Karen Kingston is screaming about what she's found...and I can only say that she has always been accurate in the past.


Autism Tsunami

30-minute video


Now that we have proof Big Pharma lied and covered up the problems with the Covid va((ine, it begs the question—what else have they been covering up? I'll bet one day we'll find out that there are cures for cancer. Always remember, Big Pharma is not in the business of trying to get you well, but to manage your sickness.

But we now have the PROOF that autism is related to vaccines, despite their denials. Del Bigtree began his investigative reporting (long before Covid) into the skyrocketing rise of autism cases. This is a fascinating video about what's going into childhood va((inations that is making Big Pharma rich in revenue!

Va((inated Teens & Long Term Heart Problems



Dr. Peter McCullough explains in layman's language.


Mostly just pics, no links

The Bible says a wise man has many counselors (Prov.15:22; 11:14; 24:6). It also says, "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another." Prov. 27:17. Great advice but don't miss the fact that this helps you understand who is right and who is wrong.

The first to plead his case seems right, until another comes and examines him. Prov. 18:17 

You have to look at both sides, or multiple sides, of a question to guide you to the best answer.

So it's a big deal when Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn, etc., keep alternative information from being considered. It means we're living in a communist country and are being controlled. If you don't "do what they say," you'll pay the price. So we offer all this additional information each week to give Believers more information as alternative reading.

So now we're in the "sink Tucker Carlson at all costs" phase. They want to torpedo his new show on Twitter before it gets off the ground. Here CNN refers to Carlson as a "right-wing extremist."

But you know they're desperate when they use their CIA-controlled Q-Anon to claim Carlson's part of the Deep State:


After a 5G base station was installed within 60 meters of her second-floor apartment, a middle-aged, otherwise healthy, Swedish woman developed debilitating symptoms corresponding with radiofrequency (RF)/microwave syndrome, researchers at the Environment and Cancer Research Foundation (ECRF) in Sweden reported this month. This was the third such case the researchers had documented.

According to their case study, published in Annals of Clinical and Medical Case Reports, fifth generation (5G) wireless technology is being rolled out worldwide “despite no previous research on possible negative effects on human health and the environment.”

The Biden Regime depleted our strategic oil reserves to lower gas prices during the midterm elections. Anyone want to bet it doesn't get refilled?


Of course he will. Whatever is evilest.
