SPIRITUAL JUDGMENT BEGAN MAY 21, 2011

LIVING IN THE DAY OF JUDGMENT TRACT SERIES #1


Page 1

The date May 21, 2011 was the most publicized date for the Day of Judgment that the world has ever seen. It was publicized on billboards, and advertised on buses. The message was seen on cars, bumper stickers, t-shirts, literature, magazines and newspapers. The news media all over the world also trumpeted the warning message of the gospel that that date would be JUDGMENT DAY! Much of the world was, in a sense, holding its collective breath in anticipation of the final judgment of God.

And yet, (seemingly) nothing happened. Things did not transpire as thought. There was no worldwide earthquake and awful circumstances that accompanied the date of May 21, 2011. Instead that day came and went like any other day. Nothing outwardly visible happened at all. Many in the world, quite relieved, ridiculed the whole idea. “See,” they said, “it was all foolishness.” And they were not alone, those in the churches likewise rejoiced: “We told you no one can know the day or the hour!”

However, what the world and the church failed to take into account was God’s propensity towards bringing spiritual judgments to pass. A spiritual judgment, like anything spiritual, cannot be seen. By definition something spiritual is invisible to the human eye. For example, the Bible declares that God is Spirit:

John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

The Bible tells us that God is a Spiritual Being. But since the world cannot see him, and since the world cannot touch Him, and since it cannot detect him with its senses, therefore according to the world’s reasoning God does not exist. Spiritual things are simply nonexistent to the world. But of course God does exist. Despite the fact that He cannot be seen with the natural eye, He is still very real. God’s people understand this. We also understand that the Bible is a spiritual book. It is God’s book, and since He is Spirit we’re not surprised at all that the bible is full of spiritual truth. God’s people believe through the eyes of faith which makes spiritual (invisible) things visible to the believer:


Page 2

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Since much of the world denies God exists because they cannot see Him, we’re not surprised that the idea of an invisible or spiritual judgment of God is ridiculous to them. And yet, as believers of the Bible we really aren’t interested or concerned at all with what the world finds ridiculous or foolish. Our very gospel, our very book the Bible, our very Savior Jesus Christ is thought foolish by the world: proving beyond doubt to the child of God that the world is extremely blind and ignorant concerning spiritual things. We do not take our leading or direction from the world in spiritual matters whatsoever. The world’s opinion of us and our beliefs is of absolutely no importance to the child of God. No. As a child of God our only concern is what does the Bible say.

Well, let’s ask that question. What does the Bible say about the idea of a spiritual Judgment Day? Is it possible? Is there any Biblical precedent for this kind of an idea? In order to answer these questions we must search the Bible for answers. And as we do so it so happens that we will find quite a good deal of information concerning this very point.
THE FIRST JUDGMENT IN EDEN: A SPIRITUAL JUDGMENT
Let’s begin our search in the book of Genesis. Soon after creating Adam God gave a very stern warning concerning one of the trees found in the Garden of Eden.

Genesis 2:16,17 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

A great many people, even many not all that familiar with the Bible, no doubt, have heard of this first and only law given to newly created man. God clearly told man not to eat of the fruit of that one particular tree. And God also told man that in the day he ate of that tree he would surely die. It was a very direct, unequivocal statement. Certainly if you or I had been present at that time and had heard this statement coming from God, we would have understood perfectly. Eat of that tree—and you die! And of course we all know what happened. The sad tragic history of the world testifies to the fact that Adam and Eve disobeyed God. They soon ate of the tree God had told them not to eat from.

Genesis 3:3-6 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

Page 3


For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Adam and Eve transgressed the only law God had given to them. They ate the fruit of the forbidden tree. And yet they did not die in that day. If you were to read the entire historical account found in Genesis chapter 3, you will not find Adam, nor his wife Eve, falling over and dying after eating from the fruit of that tree. As a matter of fact, the Bible records Eve giving birth, having one of her children killed (Abel) and then giving birth to more children: all after eating the fruit of the forbidden tree. The Bible also records Adam living for hundreds of years thereafter; Adam didn’t die until he was 930 years of age.

Genesis 5:3,4 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son ... and called his name Seth: And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years:

But how is it possible for Adam to have lived for hundreds of years after eating of the fruit of that tree? Is it possible that God was wrong somehow? We dare not think that He (God) lied. No. Neither of these things is an option: God is never wrong and it is impossible for Him to lie. How then can we explain it? The answer comes once we look at the Bible with a view towards spiritual understanding. That is, we must consider the possibility that God did bring death to mankind on the very day He said He would; but that the death man died that day was not physical but rather a spiritual death:

Ephesians 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;

Colossians 2:13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

Through these verses we learn that man died in his sins. The Bible reveals that mankind died in his soul existence. Before they fell into sin man was alive in both body and soul. He had communion with God. An intimate relationship existed between God and mankind. But once man sinned that spiritual connection between God and man was broken: he died that very day in his soul. This is why when God saved people during the day of salvation that it was necessary that they became born again in their soul. Salvation was the re-generation of the...

Page 4

...sinner’s dead soul. The important point for our study is, that God simply said: “In the day you eat thereof you will die.” God said this without specifying what type of death man would die. He did not reveal in advance that he meant death in soul and not death in the physical body.

Therefore we see that the first major judgment recorded in the Bible was actually a spiritual judgment. It was spiritual, because no one could have seen Adam and Eve’s soul die that day. In fact, Satan could have claimed he was right and have said, “See, I told you that you wouldn’t die. Look! Nothing happened to you. You’re still very much physically alive.” And any outward observers would have agreed with him. Yes, indeed, nothing happened as God had said. And yet, that idea would have been completely wrong. Something did happen. Something very real and something very grievous did occur, albeit in the spiritual realm. God’s wrath fell upon them and they died in their soul existence.

“Alright,” some may say, “we’ll allow the idea that God did bring a spiritual judgment upon Adam and Eve: but that doesn’t mean that May 21, 2011 was a spiritual judgment.” Yes that’s true, but at this time we’re not trying to prove May 21, 2011, was the beginning of Judgment Day.
The question before us right now is: is it possible that God could bring the world’s final Day of Judgment to pass, in a spiritual way? Once we establish the answer to this question, we can then move on to discuss the good deal of outstanding Biblical evidence that continues to point to May 21, 2011, as Judgment Day. For now though, let’s turn again to the Bible and see if we can discover anything further regarding spiritual judgments.

THE FIGURE OF A CUP
The Bible often refers to God’s wrath by using the figure of a cup.
Psalm 11:6 Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
Notice that along with fire and brimstone God intends to rain down “snares” upon the wicked. Perhaps you can envision literal fire and brimstone falling down upon unsaved mankind in the awful Day of Judgment, but snares? That’s traps. Does anyone really believe that traps or cages are going to fall down from the sky all over the earth? Of course not! God added this word “snares” in order to assist us in understanding that the cup of wrath given to all the unsaved people of the world will be a spiritual cup. It’s not literal, but spiritual judgment. This is why the Bible also says the whole world will be snared at the time of the end:

Page 5


Luke 21:34,35 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
On May 21, 2011, as the world rejoiced and exclaimed (the church along with them) “nothing happened.” At that very time God ensnared all of the unsaved people of the earth (in and out of the churches) and began to give them the cup of His fury to drink.
SECOND SPIRITUAL JUDGMENT: CHRIST DRINKS FROM CUP OF GOD’S WRATH
The Bible also reveals to us that Jesus Christ took upon Himself the sins of His people, and that God poured out His wrath upon Christ: punishing Him in their place. The Lord Jesus entered into the human race in order to demonstrate and show forth His glorious atoning work. While in the Garden of Gethsemane he began to experience God’s wrath while making this demonstration:
Matthew 26:39,42 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.
Jesus drank of the cup of the wrath of God; but what did this mean? Did fire bolts come down from heaven to destroy Him? No. There was nothing like that. Actually, any outward observer in the Garden of Gethsemane would have only seen a sorrowful and grieved Jesus, nothing else. There were no outward indications of God’s wrath at all. In other words, Christ’s drinking of the cup of the wrath of God while in the Garden of Gethsemane was not a physical judgment, but rather a spiritual judgment. Jesus suffered greatly due to His experiencing punishment in the spiritual realm.
This means then, that now two important Biblical judgments were completely spiritual in nature: the judgment upon Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, and the judgment of God upon Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane. These two judgments by themselves present sufficient evidence to support the idea of Judgment Day occurring in a spiritual way; at least the existence of these Biblical precedents ought to move the sincere child of God to honestly investigate this as a genuine possibility. The Bible refers to those that honestly search for truth concerning the things they hear coming forth from the Word of God as Bereans:

Page 6



Acts 17:10,11 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: ... These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.:
God’s people do not just simply ignore information from the Bible with a dismissive wave of their hand; but rather they listen carefully and then check out the things they are hearing in the Bible to see if they are true or not.
THE BIBLE RECORDS ANOTHER MAJOR SPIRITUAL JUDGMENT
But those two judgments of God aren’t all, there’s also another judgment for us to consider: The judgment of God upon the New Testament churches:
1 Peter 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
God has provided us great amounts of information in His Word pointing to His end time plan to bring to pass judgment on the world’s congregations. He also uses the figure of a cup to picture the outpouring of His wrath upon those in the churches and congregations:
Jeremiah 25:15-18 For thus saith the LORD... Take the wine cup of this fury at my hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send thee, to drink it. And they shall drink, and be moved, and be mad, because of the sword that I will send among them. Then took I the cup at the LORD’S hand, and made all the nations to drink, unto whom the LORD had sent me: To wit, Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah...
God first gives the cup to Jerusalem (a figure of the churches) and then to the rest of the nations (pointing to the world).
Jeremiah 25:29 For, lo, I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by my name, and should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished: for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the LORD of hosts.
By God’s goodness and grace, He has revealed to us that the church age ended. Judgment began on the churches in the year 1988. God’s Spirit came out of the midst of the New Testament congregations at that time, and immediately the light of the gospel was put out within all churches of the world. And yet despite the Bible’s teaching on this point, the New Testament churches continue on completely undisturbed by this terrible truth.


Page 7


Many of their pastors and elders have heard about the Bible’s teaching regarding judgment upon them, but they dismiss it and completely disregard it. But how can they ignore such an enormous teaching of the Scriptures, especially on such a grave point? They are able to ignore it and dismiss it as nothing because it is a judgment found in the spiritual realm. The Spirit of God could never be seen while in their midst, and also could not be seen once
He had left them. The darkness that presently engulfs all churches all over the world is a spiritual darkness; it cannot be detected with physical sight and natural understanding. But God’s people are able to understand and detect these things based upon discernment, or spiritual sight that God has given to them:
Daniel 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
God’s elect heard and understood the seriousness, the reality of the judgment on the churches, despite the fact that it was entirely a spiritual judgment.
SUMMARY
We’ve now examined three Biblical judgments, and we have found something remarkable: each of these three judgments can only be described as being spiritual in nature. And we’re not speaking of minor, unknown and rather obscure judgments, but three of the most major judgments recorded in the Bible. How could we discuss anything more important than God’s judgment upon mankind in the Garden of Eden: or, God’s judgment upon Christ in Gethsemane: or, God’s judgment upon the New Testament corporate church during the period of the great tribulation?
As a matter of fact, it would be impossible to name a judgment in the Bible more important than these three. That leads us back to our main question: does the Bible teach spiritual judgments? After searching the Bible we can say with assurance, that yes it does! The Bible does indeed teach that God brings spiritual (unseen to the naked eye) judgments to pass upon mankind due to their sin.
But the big question for us all in the world today is: did God bring to pass a spiritual judgment beginning on May 21, 2011? The Bible’s response is: Yes! There is a good deal of Biblical justification for saying that a spiritual judgment began on that day and continues up until this present time.
In fact, the Biblical evidence is so strong that we really need to ask ourselves: how could it be that we had never...


Page 8


...previously considered a spiritual judgment as even a possibility for the final judgment? We should note however, that the Bible does teach us that God will physically and very literally destroy this world on the last day of earth’s existence. We wholeheartedly agree with this sound Biblical teaching. But the Bible is also teaching that May 21, 2011, began a period of time known as Judgment Day in a spiritual way.
This spiritual judgment will continue for a set number of days and then finally, on the very last day of this period of time God’s wrath will physically manifest itself and utterly destroy this entire creation with every unsaved person along with it. The Bible reveals that every living person alive today has entered into the period of time the Bible identifies as Judgment Day. At this time we are all living in the Day of Judgment. Terribly, the following Scripture is now being fulfilled:
Isaiah 24:17 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth.
Of course this terrible truth leaves us with many questions concerning the character of this present period of judgment.
And also we wonder how it is that God’s elect people are still living and remaining upon the earth during this time. We will seek to answer these questions and many more in the next installment of our tract series, Living in the Day of Judgment.

NO MORE SALVATION God stopped saving people on May 21, 2011

LIVING IN THE DAY OF JUDGMENT TRACT SERIES #2



Page 1

Upon saving the last one of His elect, God ended the possibility of salvation for the unsaved people of the world by shutting the door of heaven on May 21, 2011. From that point forward, not one person anywhere in the world has become saved. Once God shut the door of heaven (a spiritual door that no man could ever see while it was open: nor could they see once it was shut) each person’s spiritual condition was permanently fixed and established. The following Scriptures have now taken effect:
Revelation 22: 10-11 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
Never again will a sinner be taken out of a life of spiritual darkness and be translated into God’s kingdom of light. After thousands of years of sending forth the gospel into the world to find and save lost sinners God’s plan was now finally accomplished. The time of judgment had now come upon the world. And the judgment was that there would be no more salvation for mankind. Throughout the Day of Judgment (which is a prolonged period of time beginning on May 21, 2011, and in all likelihood concluding 1600 days later on October 7th, 2015), the unsaved will remain unsaved and the saved will remain saved. No one’s spiritual condition can be altered.
Q? How can you say that God stopped saving people on that date of May 21, 2011? I thought as long as the world continued God would always save people?
A. In order for us to properly understand what God did in shutting the door of heaven on May 21, 2011, we need to have an overall understanding of God’s salvation program. According to the Bible, every human being stands guilty before God and rightfully deserves the penalty of death for our sins against Him. Because all men are sinners and none are righteous no man could ever do good works enough in order to earn salvation, or cause God to save them. However, God graciously decided to save a portion of mankind (a remnant out of the whole) who were chosen by Him only as a result of His good pleasure. God selected these people to obtain salvation before any of them were born. The program of God’s election plan was carried out throughout the history of the world, and finally, it was

Page 3

The Bible’s teaching of election reveals God as a sovereign king in the matter of exactly who He has determined to save. God makes no apologies for electing certain ones to become saved. After all, if all men received their due reward, then none would become saved; we all would perish and be destroyed by God’s wrath.
Human history can rightfully be understood as the period of time God granted life on earth to exist for the sole purpose of God working out His plan of salvation (for the elect) and His plan of judgment (for all non elect). The period of time God gave mankind in which to become saved came to a close on May 21, 2011. It was by that point in time that the Lord had found each and every one of His elect people: all those predestinated to obtain salvation before the world began. Since May 21, 2011 we have entered into the period of God’s judgment upon this world due to our sins against Him. We are all presently living in this Day of Judgment.
GOD IS ALSO SOVEREIGN CONCERNING WHEN HE SAVES
God determined to complete His saving work of the elect during a period of time He referred to in the Bible as the
“Day of Salvation.” Once this prolonged “spiritual day" came to an end so, also, would salvation:
2 Corinthians 6:2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
The acceptable time, the day of salvation, is also what Jesus spoke of in the gospel of John:
John 9: 4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
The work Christ is referring to are the works of salvation the Father gave Him to do:
John 6: 29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
Of course we should not miss the obvious admonition John 9:4 is giving us, that the day would end and when it did the Lord Jesus Christ’s work (of salvation) would not be able to be performed in the night that would follow. During this intense period of spiritual darkness that follows the Great Tribulation the Lord Jesus Christ is no longer performing the work of saving sinners. The light of the gospel insofar as salvation is concerned has gone out all over the world.
Matthew 24: 29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: Sorrowfully, according to the plan of God the day of salvation...

Page 4


...ended on May 21, 2011, (along with the Great Tribulation period and the latter rain) and the spiritual night has come upon the world.
SEEKING THE LORD BEFORE THE DAY OF WRATH CAME
It was during the period of time known as the “Day of Salvation” that God encouraged sinners to come to Him and cry out for mercy, in the hope they might be one of those elect people. The following passage is typical of this kind of encouragement:
Zephaniah 2:2-3 Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD'S anger come upon you. 3 Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD'S anger.
Notice, in Zephaniah 2:2-3, God commands man to seek the Lord “BEFORE the day of the Lord’s anger come upon you.” It is during the time prior to the pouring out of His wrath that God is gracious and merciful and kind towards sinners (if they happen to be one of His elect). But the strong and unmistakable implication is---that once the day of His wrath comes to pass there will be no such kindness shown to sinners. God has been very clear all throughout the Bible that Judgment Day is not a time to seek God for salvation. Once Judgment Day comes (and it has come) then there is no more mercy granted, no further grace extended, and no additional compassion bestowed upon the ones that have transgressed the law of God.
James 2:13 For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy;
The day of salvation was in effect throughout the 1955 years of the church age (33 AD through 1988 AD). Then after the first 2300 evening mornings of the great tribulation period, once again in September of 1994 God began to evangelize the world with what the Bible calls the latter rain. During this little season of about 17 years God would bring to a climax His salvation program by saving a great multitude of people from the nations of the world. God opened up the Scriptures at the beginning of the great tribulation to reveal a good many truths. Included in this was the information concerning “time and judgment.” The Bible revealed a timeline that included the dates for the end of the church age (May 21, 1988) and the date for the beginning of Judgment Day (May 21, 2011). God moved in His people to broadcast the message of May 21, 2011, Judgment Day, into all the earth and this message of approaching judgment was used by God to apply Christ’s atoning work to a great number of people all over the earth. The Bible indicates that God saved more people in the short period of the latter rain, than He did in all previous history.
Revelation 7:9,13-14 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all...

Page 5


...nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; 13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? 14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, these are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Finally, on May 21, 2011, the Great Tribulation period ended, and the latter rain came to a close. By this time all the elect captives were set free by Christ. God’s Word had now accomplished its purpose of finding all the lost sheep of the house of Israel. All of the elect, chosen to become saved from before the world began, had now become saved. The day of salvation was over.
GOD SHUTS THE DOOR OF HEAVEN
There is no question that the Bible clearly teaches that God will shut heaven’s door in the Day of Judgment:
Luke 13:24-25 & 28 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. 25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: 28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
We see from this account that once the Master rose up to shut the door He never opened it again. The pleas of those outside the door did not persuade Him to reverse His decision and open the door. And the people that found themselves outside the door are never permitted to enter in from their position of being without.
Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
Again, it was on May 21, 2011, that God shut the door of heaven. He could now do this since all the people Christ obligated Himself to save (by dying for their sins from the foundation of the world) had now become saved. Once all the elect were safely in the kingdom of God, the door was shut! Therefore, they were as safe in God’s kingdom through salvation as Noah and his family were safe inside the ark in the day that the flood began. Gen. 7: 11, 13 &16 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great...

Page 6

...deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark; 16 And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.
The Bible ties together the flood of Noah’s day and May 21, 2011 which came exactly 7000 years later (4990 BC + 2011 = 7001 – 1 = 7000) . Since May 21, 2011 was the last day of the Great Tribulation period and also fell 7000 years precisely from the date of the flood, and since it also had the underlying Hebrew calendar date of the 17th day of the 2nd month (which matched precisely with the day that God shut the door of the ark and brought the flood to devastate the world), we can be sure that God placed His hand on May 21, 2011, as the day that the door of heaven was shut to the unsaved inhabitants of the earth.
We’re not surprised that many today dispute with God over His act of shutting the door of heaven on this world. It is actually in keeping with the nature of mankind. Whenever God makes a sovereign decree we can expect the natural minded man to argue with Him about it. Men do this all the time concerning God’s election program regarding whom He saves; and now men are doing the very same thing regarding when God does the saving.
The shutting of heaven’s door is an action performed by God according to His perfect and sovereign will. If God opens something (as He had previously widely opened up the door of heaven to save a great multitude, out of the Great Tribulation) man cannot shut it. Likewise, if God shuts something, no man can open it.
Revelation 3:7... he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
True believers are only men. We are not the ones that determine the times and seasons of God’s salvation program, nor do we determine when these times and seasons will conclude in judgment. When it comes to the door of heaven, the child of God is simply a doorkeeper:
Psalm 84:10...I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
The Bible reveals that God is the only One possessing the necessary power and authority to make these types of awesome decrees. It is the Bible that insists that heaven’s door is now shut to all the unsaved inhabitants of the earth. Therefore, this teaching comes from the One that issues the decrees to the doorkeepers and not the lowly doorkeepers themselves.
The child of God, alive and remaining on the earth in the Day of Judgment, can only fulfill his role of a humble doorkeeper as he receives instructions from the Word of God, the Bible. It is the Bible that indicates and confirms that God’s salvation...

...plan ended on May 21, 2011. It is the Bible that declares God brought to pass on that day an awful and terrible judgment, the judgment of shutting heaven’s door. This judgment ended Christ’s work of saving sinners: a judgment that man could not see with his physical eyes and, therefore, at this time it is a spiritual judgment. There is a strong likelihood that the judgment now upon the world will continue for 1600 days and then conclude with the end of the world on October 7, 2015.
THE HOPE GOD ALLOWS FOR MANKIND IN THE TIME OF THE FINAL JUDGMENT
Q? Are you saying then, that there’s no more hope for people to be saved?
A. Again, we must be very clear that God is no longer actively saving sinners. He has finished that work.
Remember John 9:4 states, “the night comes when no man can work.” Christ will not save someone today that is presently unsaved. The Bible indicates that each person’s spiritual condition is now eternally fixed.
Luke 16:26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.
Q? So you’re saying all hope is gone?
A. During this time of judgment upon the world the only hope that the Bible allows for, is the hope that maybe God saved a person before He shut the door of heaven on May 21, 2011; that is, if a person was not part of any church and they heard the message from the Bible, then they may hope that God saved them prior to His shutting the door of heaven. A person with this hope in mind may go to God and say, “O Father, having had mercy (before May 21) have mercy.”
Q? What if a person was part of a church?
A. That is a different matter. God ended the church age and commanded His people to leave the churches. God already was not performing the work of salvation in the churches throughout the 23 year judgment upon them (May 21, 1988 through May 21, 2011) and, therefore, anyone remaining in the church before May 21, 2011 could not possibly have become saved while there. Spiritually, this was terrible for them, but things got even worse once the judgment transitioned from the churches to the world (on May 21, 2011); at that point in time, the condition of “no salvation” (which was exclusively in the churches), expanded to include the whole world. Tragically, this means that people in the churches could not have been saved during the glorious period of the outpouring of the latter rain and now, in the Day of Judgment, cannot be saved at all since God has ended His salvation program. The only thing the Bible allows for regarding those in the churches is a prayer in which they may request of God that the cup of wrath be removed from them.
Matthew. 26:39 ... O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

GOD COMMANDS US TO FEED HIS SHEEP!
 Q? This is very troubling information, if there is no hope for salvation then why are you sharing it with people?
A. You are asking a good question. There are at least three reasons why a true believer desires to share these things with others: First, God commands us to feed His sheep; that is, the majority of those elect people that God saved during the Great Tribulation period (the great multitude) are still alive and living on the earth in this time of judgment. Since we have no idea who these people are, we must share the Bible’s teaching openly with all. The things we are sharing are true to God’s Word, and it is the sharing of truth that spiritually nourishes and feeds the sheep of God. Secondly, the last thing many of these people heard from the Bible was that May 21, 2011 would be the Day of Judgment on the world. We want the elect to know exactly the manner in which God is actively judging the world.

Thirdly, God commands His people to not be silent but to publish these things. The Lord uses Babylon as a picture of the world under His wrath and says in Jeremiah 50:
Jeremiah 50:2 Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon is taken,

Why Is The World So Divided?

LIVING IN THE DAY OF JUDGMENT TRACT SERIES #3




Q. I’m not sure why, but it seems like things are falling apart more and more. I suppose it’s just politics that divide us?

A. Wherever we turn in the world today we do find tremendous upheaval as long trusted political systems are trusted no more. News agencies that were once highly esteemed, even revered, are respected no longer; but instead are mockingly labeled as “fake news.” The world’s entertainment industry has been badly shaken with scandal after scandal which has resulted in great humiliation for those exposed. But it doesn’t end there. Many accustomed to escaping the world’s troubles by turning to sports as a sort of refuge have seen their beloved sports teams and players and the outlets that cover them embroiled in multiple controversies. Even religion has been beset with turmoil as one of the world’s largest religions has had its reputation tarnished repeatedly by those who have engaged in terroristic acts in its name. And sadly, the chaotic division in the world is not only out there somewhere, but we also see societal division practically everywhere we look, often in our own families. What’s going on? Perhaps this will surprise you, but the answer to this question is found in the Bible. The Bible speaks of a time when the world will be divided like it has never been divided before. The time of great division occurs during Judgment Day. Ezekiel 38: 21-22 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother. End of section 1 22 And … I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Zechariah 14:13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.

Q. Huh, Judgment Day? Are you saying that Judgment Day is almost here?

A. No. Actually, the Bible has revealed the fact that Judgment Day has already come. Perhaps you remember hearing about the date of May 21, 2011 proclaimed to the world several years ago? The Bible insists that that proclamation was correct. Which means that God has been judging the world from that time until now. And the Bible also indicates that this prolonged judgment period will continue for several more years very possibly until the year 2033 AD.

Q. What? You can’t be serious. You think that just because the world is divided right now that it means it’s Judgment Day?

A. It’s the other way around. It’s not Judgment Day because the world is divided; but the world’s divided because it is Judgment Day. And God’s program of judgment calls for the division of Satan’s kingdom--that is, the division of this world: Matthew 12:25 Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: Also, Mark 3:24-26 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. Notice the phrase, “cannot stand,” is used repeatedly in these Scriptures. God, who wrote the Bible, selects His words with great precision. We see similar language in a few other places: End of section 2 Revelation 6: 17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? Psalm 1:5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. The kingdom of Satan, which consists of all the unsaved people of the world, will fall in the time of the final judgment. The division of Satan’s house will not allow them to stand in the judgment.

Q. You said that this world was Satan’s kingdom? Look, I agree there’s a lot of ugliness out there in the world, but I wouldn’t go so far as to call the world “Satan’s kingdom”.

A. Unfortunately, that’s the way the Bible describes it. Satan, by deceiving Adam and Eve back in the garden of Eden, won by right of conquest man’s servitude to himself and to sin. And it was due to winning the right to rule over unsaved mankind that he was able to offer Jesus all the world’s kingdoms: Luke 4:5-6 And the devil, … shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. Satan could legitimately offer to give all the kingdoms of the world to Christ because he ruled over them since the garden of Eden.

Q. I don’t know, the idea of Satan ruling the world sounds strange to me.

A. Well, as a matter of fact, he is no longer ruling the world at this time. Once the Lord Jesus Christ came as Judge of mankind (beginning May 21, 2011), He deposed Satan from all official rule and Jesus took over his kingdom. The Lord Jesus is presently ruling the world during this prolonged period of judgment upon it. The Bible gives us an historical parable of the king of Babylon and the fall of his kingdom in order to illustrate this grand truth. First, we find that the king of Babylon is a figure or representation of the devil: Isaiah 14: 4 That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, … Isaiah 14:12-14 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: … I will be like the most High. THE WORLD IS FALLEN! IS FALLEN! It was the king of Babylon and his nation that destroyed the land of Judah and took many of the Jews captive into Babylon. After an awful period of seventy years (which typified the great tribulation) Babylon was conquered by the Medes and the Persians. The fall of Babylon at that time pointed to the fall of Satan and of the world at the time of the end. It is for this reason that the Bible has a great deal to say about the fall of Babylon: Jeremiah 51: 7-8 Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD's hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad. Babylon is suddenly fallen and destroyed: Isaiah 21:9 … Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground. Revelation 14:8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. Based on the context of Revelation 14, we see that Babylon’s fall is figurative language describing the fall of the world during the time of its final judgment. Revelation 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; We also read of Babylon’s fall in chapter 18: Revelation 18:2 … Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. Wherever we find the refrain, “Babylon is fallen, is  fallen,” we can paraphrase this to mean, “The world is fallen, is fallen!” or, “Judgment Day is here! Judgment Day is here!” In a remarkable verse, the Lord ties Babylon in with the fall of all unsaved people in the world: Jeremiah 51:49 As Babylon hath caused the slain of Israel to fall, so at Babylon shall fall the slain of all the earth. Therefore, Babylon’s fall is synonymous with the world’s fall. Obviously, once Babylon fell it meant she could no longer stand. Division brings about the fall of a house; division brings about the fall of a kingdom. Satan’s kingdom of this world has fallen. And the outward evidence of this fall can be seen in the division of the world all around us. THE WRITING ON THE WALL: THY KINGDOM IS DIVIDED In a very interesting way, God describes in the Bible the very night in which the king of Babylon (type of Satan) was slain and his kingdom fell. At that time king Belshazzar saw some mysterious writing on a wall. It troubled him so greatly that his knees began to knock against each other. Finally, the faithful man of God, Daniel, was called to come and interpret the writing on the wall: Daniel 5:25-28 And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. This is the interpretation of the thing: MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians. Daniel 5:30-31 In that night was Belshazzar the king of the Chaldeans slain. And Darius the Median took the kingdom, … In one night, the king of Babylon met his end and had his kingdom DIVIDED. In that night the king of the Medes and the Persians took Babylon. Therefore the Bible pictures Darius (also known as “Cyrus”) as a type of Christ coming as a thief in the night. We know for certain Darius (Cyrus) was a type of Christ due to what is said about him in the book of Isaiah: Isaiah 44:28 That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and … saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid. Cyrus (Darius) is called God’s shepherd. And, Isaiah 45:1 Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, He is also called God’s anointed. The word translated as “anointed” is the same word translated as “Messiah” in the book of Daniel. There’s no doubt that Cyrus is a picture of Christ coming as a thief to judge Satan and this world in the Day of Judgment. After conquering it Cyrus then divides the kingdom of Babylon. In a curious way, the Lord Jesus once referred to Himself as a “divider” as He answered a man that wanted Him to settle a dispute over an matter of inheritance with his brother: Luke 12:13-14 And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me. And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you? What’s interesting about Jesus’ statement is that He ties together the words JUDGE and DIVIDER. We know from the Bible that Christ is the Judge of this world. And we’re now learning that He is also the Divider of Satan’s kingdom of this world.

Q. Are you saying, that Jesus Christ is ruling the world right now?

A. That’s correct. The Bible is declaring that Jesus Christ is presently ruling this world in the Day of Judgment: Revelation 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; Revelation 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.  

Q. If Jesus is ruling the world wouldn’t things be wonderful for everyone rather than so bad like it’s been?

A. Jesus is not ruling the world in a benevolent way. He’s not ruling for the good or benefit of unsaved people. The Bible says He’s ruling with a rod of iron because He’s the Righteous Judge that is punishing mankind for transgressing His holy law, the Bible. The punishment involves exposing the world’s sins which results in their public humiliation. In other words, at this time Jesus is actively working to bring ridicule and mockery to all facets of the world’s institutions. Isaiah 47:1 Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon…: there is no throne, … for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate. Isaiah 47:3 Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, … thy shame … seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man. As man has mocked God and His Word, so the Lord turns the tables and mocks man during his final end: Proverbs 1:25-26 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

Q. You make Jesus sound cruel and vengeful. I thought He was supposed to be kind and gentle?

A. He is kind and gentle. But He is also the Just Judge of mankind. And as Judge He is exacting righteous vengeance upon the breakers of His law and upon those that have shed the blood of His elect people: John 5:27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. Romans 12: 19 … Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8 … the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

Q. This sounds all bad. Is there no good news?

A. There is good news for those that God saved prior to the date of May 21, 2011. Those people were saved through hearing the Bible and have been left on the earth to go through this grievous period of the world’s judgment. These (elect) people have been left on the earth in order to make an appearance before Christ’s judgment seat: 2 Corinthians 5: 10 … For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; Those Christ has saved will not have any sin found in them and therefore will endure all the way to the end. Matthew 24: 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. Unlike the unsaved people of the earth, the elect children of God will endure the judgment process (spiritual fire) until its completion and then finally enter into the wonderful new heaven and new earth as God has promised them. Zechariah 13:8-9 … in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: … I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God. It is not a pleasant thing to go through but certainly well worth it since at the end God’s elect people will finally enter into eternity and into the joy of their Lord. Matthew 25:23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
