The Time of Trouble

"And at that time Michael, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and the time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation until now, but saved at that time your people, everyone that shall be found written in the book "(Daniel 12:1).
 
When will the preaching of the third angel, God's grace will leave the wicked inhabitants of the earth. God's people did their job, he got the "latter rain", "joy of the LORD," and prepared for the coming hour of trial. Angels in the sky rushing in all directions. Angel, who has returned from the land, declares that the case is over, the world is subjected to the final test, and everyone who was faithful to God's commandments, received "the seal of God." Then Jesus ceases His mediatorial ministry in the heavenly sanctuary. He raises his hands and says with a loud voice, "It is finished." And all the host of heaven takes their crowns at His solemn declaration: "unjust, let him still do evil, filthy still be filthy, and the righteous, let him be righteous still, and the holy still be holy" (Revelation 22:11). The fate of each is solved — for life or death. Christ has made reconciliation for His people and blotted out their sins. Multiplied the number of his subjects, "the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven," will be given to the heirs of salvation, and Jesus must reign as King of kings and Lord of lords.
 
When Christ leaves the sanctuary, the land was plunged into darkness. At that terrible time the righteous will have to live in the face of the holy God without an advocate. Nothing will deter the wicked, and Satan will get unlimited power over the unrepentant. God's patience was at an end. World has rejected His grace, His love despised and trampled His law. A time of grace for the wicked end. Spirit of God that they stubbornly resisted finally left them. Deprived cover of divine mercy, they are at the mercy of an evil enemy. Satan then plunge the inhabitants of the land in the last great tribulation. As soon as the angels of God cease to hold the fierce winds of human passion, to play all the hostile elements. The whole world will suffer destructive punishment, more terrible than the one that struck the ancient Jerusalem.
 
A single angel destroyed all the firstborn of Egypt, and filled the whole earth crying. When David took a census of the people that have sinned before God, as a punishment for the sin of one angel made terrible havoc. Holy angels by God's spoiled the ungodly — the same will be received and the demons that God allowed it to happen. Dark forces are already ready and waiting for the divine permission, to devastate the earth.
 
Who honor the law of God have been accused of, that they have put the judgments of God in the world, and now they will be seen as the perpetrators of horrific natural disasters, hatred and bloodshed that will fill all the land of suffering. The force accompanying the last warning will atheists angry, and their anger will flare up against all those who took the message, and Satan will further inflate the spirit of hatred and persecution.
 
Priests and the people were not aware of the place of God's presence is deserted — the Lord has given the Jews. While the power of Satan, and bogged down in the most terrible and destructive passions, they still regarded themselves as the elect of God. Ministry in the church continued its desecrated altars sacrifices, and every day requested for the blessing of God to the people who have been guilty of shedding the precious blood of the Son of God, and continued to encroach on the life of His servants and apostles. And at a time when the sanctuary will be the final decision and the fate of the world irrevocably determined, inhabitants of the earth will not know about it. The people finally left the Spirit of God will continue to hold religious ceremonies and formalities, satanic zeal, which the prince of evil will give them to carry out their evil designs, becomes jealous God.
 
Since the fighting breaks out around Saturday in Christendom and religious power to unite with the state to enforce the observance of Sunday, the persistent refusal to submit to a small minority nationwide demand will make it the object of universal loathing. And it is agreed that this small group of people who are resisting the decrees of the church and the law of the state, should not be excused, it is better to suffer than to plunge all the people into confusion and lawlessness. Eighteen hundred years ago, a similar charge was brought against Christ "heads of the people." "We'd better — said Caiaphas, — that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish" (John 11:50). This argument seems convincing, and soon will issue a decree against that thought upon Saturday by the fourth commandment, which declares them worthy of the most severe penalties and give people freedom after a certain time to betray them to death. In our civilized age apostate Protestants are doing this for those who keep God's commandments, as at that time there were Catholics.
 
The people of God will then transfer such suffering and sorrow, as described by the Prophet even the time of Jacob: "So the Lord said, his voice trembling, of fear, we hear, and not of the world … all faces pale. Woe! That day is great, there was no is like it is — even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it "(Jeremiah 30:5-7).
 
Satan accused Jacob before the angels of God, declaring his right to kill him for his sin, and he led Esau against him, and all night long battle Satan tried to convince the patriarch acute sense of guilt, to disappoint him and deprive of hope in God. Jacob was driven almost to despair, knowing that without help from above, he will die. He sincerely repented of his great sin and cried out to God's grace. He did not give up their goal, but clung to the angel and begged him insistently, with sorrowful tears, until won.
 
Just as Satan stirred Esau to go against James, it will incite and atheists to destroy the people of God in times of trouble. As he accused Jacob, so he will blame the people of God. He counts the earth by his people, but a small group of people who keep the commandments of God, is not subject to his authority. If only he was able to destroy them, then his triumph would be complete. He sees that holy angels guard them, and, therefore, their sins are forgiven, but he does not know what their fate has already been solved in the sanctuary. He knows for certain all their sins, because he was tempted by the people and represents them before God in the bad light, arguing that they should be deprived of the grace of God along with him. Satan says that if God is just, He can not forgive their sin, and it, along with other demons to destroy. He will declare to them their rights as their prey, and demand that they condemned to death by giving into his hands.
 
Satan inspires many that God does not pay attention to minor offenses, but his relation to James shows that the Lord does not justify in any way and can not tolerate evil. Those who try to justify or conceal their sins, and therefore leaves them marked in the books of heaven as unconfessed and unforgiven, will become prey to Satan. The higher the position, the more serious are their crimes in the sight of God, and the more confident of winning their enemy. Those who defer their preparation for the day of the Lord, will not do so in time of trouble, or at any other time in the future. Their situation is hopeless.
 
Who call themselves Christians are not ready to the last terrible battle will be desperate to confess their sins, and the wicked will only mock their sorrow. Their confession would like Esau or confession of Judas. With this confession, they mourn not the sin, but the consequences of their sins. They do not feel any real regret or revulsion to sin. They confess their sins only by fear of punishment, but, like Pharaoh of old, they will be challenged again to Heaven, once the threat has passed sentence.
 
History of James teaches us that God will not leave seduced temptations and steeped in sin soul if it will turn to Him in sincere repentance. When Satan tries to destroy these people, the Lord will send his angels to comfort and protect them. Satan's attacks are terrible and decisive, his deception is horrible, but the eye of the Lord — of his people, and he heard all their cries. Their sufferings are great, fiery furnace flames devour them, but the Great Smelter save them as gold tested by fire. God's love for His children during their most severe test is as strong and tender as in the days of their greatest prosperity, but they need to go through the furnace of fire: all earthly things must destroy the fire, so they can be like Christ.
 
This is a time of sorrow and despair will require us to a faith that overcomes fatigue, procrastination and hunger — a faith that does not weaken in the face of the most severe tests. Everyone will be given the test to prepare for the Great Tribulation. Jacob prevailed because he was persistent and determined. His victory demonstrates the power of prayer relentless. All who trust in God's promises, will succeed. And those who do not wish to give up his "I", agonizing struggle with God, long and earnestly pray for His blessings, not receive them. Wrestle with God — how few people understand what it means! Few have the burning desire to find God, straining all his strength. When the waves of indescribable, inexpressible despair threatened to demolish the depths of prayer, how little those who are in such moments with unflinching faith rests on the promises of God!
 
Tom, whose faith is weak, at substantial risk of being dominated by satanic temptations and obey the decree, to compel the conscience. Even if they will take the test, then the tribulation will plunge them further into despair, because they do not come to rely on God. They will have a terrible disappointment to learn the lessons of the yoke of faith that was once neglected.
 
Now we need to know God, to experience His promises. Angels record every sincere and earnest prayer. Better to abandon the selfish pleasures than neglect communion with God. Better to live in extreme poverty, with nothing but enjoy his favor, than to enjoy the wealth, honor, comfort and friendship, being left by him. We must not forget about prayer. And if we absorb earthly interests, then God can remind himself, depriving us of golden idols, houses and fertile land.
 
Young people can save themselves from sin by refusing to choose other ways, in addition, where they can ask for God's blessing. If God's messengers who bear the last message of warning to the world, to pray for the blessing of God, not cold, dull and indifferent, but fervently and in faith, as did Jacob, they had no time would be a case to say: "I saw the Lord face to face, and my life is preserved "(Genesis 32:30). Then the sky would take their princes, has the power to overcome God and man.
 
Soon it will be a time of trouble, "what has not happened." Then we need to experience what we have now is not for the acquisition of which many are too lazy. Often the expectation of trouble is really terrible, but this is not the case for the upcoming test. Even the most vivid imagination can not paint a picture of the grave of experiences. At this time, testing each soul must be responsible for ourselves before God. "Noah, Daniel, and Job … — As I live, says the Lord God, — they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters, their righteousness they should deliver but their own souls" (Ezekiel 14:20).
 
Now that the great High Priest makes our reconciliation, we must strive to be perfect in Christ. Our Savior did not allow the thought to yield to temptation. Satan finds in human heart weakness, cling, only one sin cherished desire to have had by his temptations. But Christ said of Himself: "The prince of this world, and in me has nothing" (John 14:30). Satan could not find anything in the Son of God, which would gain victory over him. He remained faithful to the commandments of the Father, and in Him there was no sin, which would give an advantage to Satan. In the same condition should be all those who want to stand in the time of trouble.
 
In this life, we have to remove ourselves from sin through faith in the atoning blood of Christ. Our Savior invites us to be united with Him, to unite our weakness to His strength, our ignorance — to His wisdom, our unworthiness — to his credit. Providence of God for us is the school in which we must learn humility and meekness of Jesus. God always shows us the true purpose of life and not the path that we have chosen for ourselves, the way light and pleasant. It remains for us to accept the means at Sky transforms our character after the divine pattern. Any neglect or delay in this work involves a terrible risk for the soul. The Apostle John in vision heard a loud voice saying: "Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you in great wrath, knowing that he has a short time" (Revelation 12:12). How terrible reality, causing this exclamation! Satan's anger with the approach of the end of his time is widening, seduction and destruction that he has to reach its peak during the tribulation.
 
Soon we will see in the sky terrible supernatural phenomenon — the sign of the power of demons who create miracles. Devilish spirits come out to the kings of the earth and to the world, to lure them into a network error and convince connect with Satan in his last struggle against the government of heaven. They can deceive and chiefs and their subjects. Men arise, posing as Christ, appropriating the name and worship belonging only Savior of the world. They will perform amazing miracles of healing, and claimed to have received revelations from heaven, but these revelations contradict the testimony of the Scriptures.
 
The final act of the great drama of deception of Satan will attempt to impersonate Christ. The Church has long argued that awaits the coming of the Savior as the fulfillment of their hopes. Now the great deceiver will create the appearance of Christ's coming. In various parts of the world Satan will appear among men as a majestic being surrounded by the glare, reminding themselves the Son of God, as described by John in Revelation (1:13-15). Glory surrounding it will surpass everything ever seen by man. Solemn cries filled the air: "Christ has come! Christ came!" In great admiration for the people shall fall before him, he raises his arms and blessed them, as did Christ, being on the ground. His voice is soft and subdued, yet melodic. Words full of gentleness and compassion, he repeats some of the grace of heavenly truths Christ once said, he heals the disease of people and then imitate Christ, declares that moved Saturday to Sunday, and commands all day holy, blessed them. He states that all persevered holy the seventh day are blaspheming his name by refusing to listen to the angels carrying them light and truth. What a powerful and almost irresistible fraud! And like the Samaritans, Simeon Magus deceived many, from small to large, will heed this witchcraft and say, "This man is the great power of God" (Acts 8:10).
 
But the people of God can not be deceived. Teaching of the false Christ contradicts Scripture. He blesses those who worship the beast and his image, that those whom the Bible says that they will have the wrath of God is poured out without mercy.
 
Furthermore, Satan is not allowed to imitate the way of the return of Christ. The Savior warned his people against such fraud, clearly indicating how they will His coming: "For false Christs and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect … So, if they say to you:" here. He is in the wilderness, "- do not go out," notes. He is in the inner rooms, '- do not believe, for as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so will the Son of Man "(Matthew 24:24-27, 31, 25:31, Revelation. 1:7; 1 Thess. 4:16, 17). This coming impossible to fake. On it will be known everywhere, it sees the world.
 
Only those who are well versed in the Scriptures, those who accepted the love of truth, will be protected from the great delusion that has captivated the world. With the help of God's Word, they will expose fraud. For all it's time trial. Temptation to reveal the true Christians. Approved if the people of God now so firmly in His Word, not to give in to this temptation? Will it be at this critical time to stick the Bible and only the Bible? Satan as far as possible try to interfere with preparation for this day. It will create different obstacles that people are obsessed with earthly riches, to carry a heavy, wearisome burden, that their hearts were weighed down by worries of life, and the test came to them as a thief.
 
When approved by the various Christian rulers decree against that keep the commandments of God will deprive them of the protection of the government, and given into the hands of those who desire their destruction, the people of God will flee from the cities and villages, finding refuge in the most remote and desolate places. Become a haven for many inaccessible mountains. Like they do Christians Piedmont highlands its sanctuary and praise God for the "impregnable rock" (Isaiah 33:16). But many of all nations and classes, nobles and commoners, rich and poor, black and white will be converted into the most cruel and unjust slavery. Beloved of God will experience difficult days in chains, languishing in prison bars, sentenced to death. Some will starve to death in hideous dungeons. No one can hear them moaning, no hand is not readily stretch to help them.
 
Does God forget His people in this hour of trial? He forgot a true Noah, when the courts visited antediluvian world? He's forgotten to Lot, when the fire fell from the sky to destroy the city? Whether he forgot Joseph, surrounded by idolaters, and Egypt? He's forgotten to Elijah when Jezebel threatened him with an oath fate of the prophets of Baal? He's forgotten to Jeremiah, languishing in a dark, smelly pit? Did he forgot the three youths in the fiery furnace? Or Daniel in the lion's den?
 
"But Zion said," Leave me Lord, and my God has forgotten me, "Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? But if I forget, yet I will not forget you. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands "(Isaiah 49:14-16)" For touches you, touches the apple of His eye "(Zechariah 2:8).
 
While enemies can throw the servants of God in jail, but its walls can not separate their souls to Christ. Anyone who knows their every weakness. Who are familiar with each test, above all earthly powers, angels visited them in the impregnable prison, and bring them to a heavenly light and peace. And dungeon turn to the palace, for there stay rich in faith, and the gloomy vaults of the heavenly light will illuminate, as in that distant time when Paul with the Force, was imprisoned in Philippi, prayed and sang at midnight.
 
The judgments of God will visit those who seek to oppress and destroy God's people. His long-suffering towards atheists gives them courage, but the punishment is inevitable and terrible, despite the delay. "For the Lord shall rise up as in mount Perazim, wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, to do His work, strange work, and perform his act, his wonderful action" (Isaiah 28:21). To our merciful God the punishment — a "strange work." "As I live, says the Lord God: I do not want the death of the sinner" (Ezekiel 33:11). Lord — "merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant and true … forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin." But "by no punishment." "The Lord is slow to anger and great in power, and does not leave unpunished the wicked" (Exodus 34:6, 7; Nahum 1:3 — another translation: "0H be ruthless in his justice, and restore the authority of His downtrodden law"). About rigor retribution awaiting the perpetrator can be judged by how the Lord reluctantly resorted to the courts. The people to whom he treated with such patience and that he does not kill, until he has filled the measure of their wickedness in the sight of God, in the end, drink a cup of wrath, not mixed with mercy.
 
When Christ finished his mediation service in the sanctuary, then ruthless wrath of God will be poured out on those who worship the beast and his image and receives his mark (Revelation 14:9, 10). The courts, which should come upon the world before the final release of God's people will be even more dramatic than the ulcer sent to Egypt to release Israel. John describes this terrible punishment, "… fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast and worshiped his image." Sea "became as the blood of a dead man, and every living soul died in the sea." "The rivers and fountains of waters became blood." While these disasters are terrible. God is perfectly just. The angel of God said: "Righteous art thou, Lord … because thou hast judged thus for they have shed the blood of saints and prophets. Thou hast given them blood to drink: for they are worthy" (Revelation 16:2-6). Condemning the people of God to death, they have been responsible shedding of his blood, as if it had been committed by their hands. Similarly, Jesus accused the Jews of His time and in all the holy men of blood, spilled from the days of Abel, because they were filled with the same spirit and tried to do the same, as the killer of the prophets.
 
The following ulcer Sun "was given … to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat" (verses 8, 9). The prophet describes the condition of the people in that terrible time, "the land mourneth, for the bread … destroyed all the trees of the field, because joy from the sons of men." "The seed is rotten under their clods … How do the beasts groan, herds of cattle, for there is no pasture for them … because of waters are dried up, and the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness." "Songs of the temple on that day will turn into a sob, says the Lord God, there will be many dead bodies in every place will throw them in silence" (Joel 1:10-12, 17-20; Amos 8:3).
 
However, these ulcers do not impress anyone else inhabitants of the earth would have been completely destroyed. This will be the worst punishment ever on death. All courts, understands people before the end of the test period were connected with mercy. Blood of Christ, crying out to God, spare the sinner from the full measure of retribution for his sins, but the final judgment will be poured out the wrath of God, not mixed with mercy.
 
On that day, many wish to take refuge in the mercy of God, which they have long rejected. "Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land — not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord. And they will go from sea to sea and wander from north to east, searching for the word of the Lord, and shall not find it "(Amos 8:11, 12).
 
God's people, too, will not avoid suffering, but, suffering persecution and oppression, suffering deprivation and hunger, he will not be left to perish. God, who took care of Elijah will not pass any of his child, who sacrifices himself. One who counted the hair on their head, take care of them, and in time of famine they will be filled. While the wicked is death from hunger and plagues, angels will protect the righteous and take care of their needs. Anyone who walks in truth, the promise: "Bread shall be given him, his waters run dry." "The poor and needy seek water, and there, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the Lord will hear them. I the God of Israel will not forsake them" (Isaiah 33:16, 41:17).
 
"Though the fig tree does not blossom and fruit be on the vines, the olive, and the fields shall yield no food, there shall be no sheep in the pen and cattle in the stalls — and even then I will rejoice in the Lord and rejoice in God my salvation "(Av. 3:17, 18).
 
"Lord — thy keeper: the Lord — your shade on your right hand. Sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon — at night. LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: God will save your soul." "He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, from the deadly pestilence. Feathers their overshadow you, and under his wings shalt secure thy shield and buckler — his truth. Do not be afraid of the terror by night, the arrow that flies by day. Pestilence that walketh in darkness, plague, ravages at noon. one thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but not close to you. Only eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because you said, "Lord — my refuge," the most High thy refuge chose you. befall thee not evil, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling "(Psalm 120:5-7; 90:3-10).
 
From a human point of view it would seem that the children of God soon to capture his testimony with blood, as it did before the martyrs. They themselves begin to fear that the Lord has given them to their enemies. It will be a terrible despair. Day and night they will cry out to God for deliverance. Wicked cheer and shout mockingly, "Where now is your faith, why did God not exempt you from our hands, if you are actually his people?". But remember waiting with Jesus, to die on the cross of Calvary, and mocking cries of the priests and chiefs, "He saved others; himself he can not save if he is the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him" (Matthew 27 : 42). Like Jacob, all of them struggle with God. And in their eyes visible intense inner struggle. All faces are pale. However, they continue to offer up their prayers to God.
 
If people had a spiritual vision, they would see around those who keep the word patience of Christ, powerful angels. With tenderness and sympathy of the angels are watching their suffering and hear their prayers. They expect only the words of the Lord to deliver them from danger. But we need to wait a little longer. The people of God must drink the cup and be baptized with the baptism. And it is this delay, no matter how painful it may be for them, is the best answer to their prayers. Confidently waiting for the Lord will take effect, they learn to exercise faith, hope, and patience, which they are often lacking in the spiritual life. But for the elect the tribulation will be reduced. "Shall not God avenge his own elect, whether who cry to him day and night? .. I tell you that he will avenge them speedily" (Luke 18:7, 8). End will come much sooner than people expect. Wheat will be linked into sheaves for the garner of God, but the tares are gathered to be burned.
 
Celestial Guard, loyal to his duty, continue to watch. Although the decree is to determine the time when it should be put to death all who keep the commandments of God, but the enemy will try to do it sooner. However, no one can go through the powerful operation guards, guarding every faithful soul. While fleeing from the towns and villages, some are attacked, but the swords raised against them break and fall powerless as a straw. Others are protected by angels in the guise of soldiers.
 
In all ages God worked through holy angels for protection and liberation of his people. Celestial beings have taken an active part in the life of people. They appeared clothed in shining like lightning, clothing, and they come in the guise of ordinary travelers. They were men of God, and as a people. They rested at noon under the shady trees, as if tired on the way. They enjoyed the hospitality of the people. They pointed the way strangers, caught at night on the road. The hands they lit the fire of the altar. They opened the prison doors, and taken out for the freedom of God's servants. Arrayed in heavenly robes, they went to move the stone from the tomb of the Savior.
 
In human form angels are often present at the meetings just, also attend the meeting wicked, as once they came to Sodom, to record things the people of Sodom and decide whether not overstepped the boundaries of God's patience. God loves mercy, and for the few truly loyal to him for a long time he lay calm judgment and extends many people. Those who rebel against God, hardly aware that their lives they have to the few faithful to His children, whom they love to ridicule and oppress.
 
Although the rulers of the world are not aware of this, in their councils often act angels. People look at them, listen to their speeches, criticized, ridiculed their suggestions. They slander and insult them. In the halls and court houses of these heavenly messengers are showing the most profound knowledge of human history. They argue that they can better protect the oppressed than the most able and eloquent advocates. They destroy the evil plans and prevent evil deeds, which could damage the work of God and bring the suffering of its people. In time of danger and distress, "angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and delivers them" (Psalm 33:8).
 
With the hope of God's people waiting for signs of the coming of their King. When the guards asked, "How many nights?", They respond without hesitation: "Morning is coming, and also the night!" (Isaiah 21:11, 12). Clouds gathered above the mountain peaks, is illuminated by the light. Will soon open his glory, and the Sun of Righteousness will rise. Morning — the beginning of eternal day saints — and dusk — the eternal night of wicked — approached.
 
"And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with singing, and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, sorrow and mourning shall flee away. I, myself — comforts you. Who are you that afraid of man who dies, and son of man which shall be made as grass, and you forget the Lord thy maker … and constantly, every day dread fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy? where is the fury of the oppressor? soon be freed prisoner, and not die in the pit and will not need bread. I am the Lord thy God stirs up the sea so that its waves roar, the Lord of hosts — his name. And I have put my words in thy mouth, and the shadow of My hand will cover thee "(Isaiah 51: 11-16).
 
"Therefore hear now this, thou afflicted, and drunken, but not with wine. Thus saith thy Lord. Lord thy God otmschayuschy of his people, Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling, the yeast from the cup of my wrath: thou shalt no more drink them. And'll give it over to your tormentors, who said to you, 'Bow down, that we may go for you ", and you did your spine as if the earth and the street to pass" (Isaiah 51:21-23).
 
The eyes of God, penetrating through the ages have seen that for his people the time is coming when the Earth authorities turn against him. Like exiled prisoner, they will be afraid of starving to death or violence. But the Saints, who parted the Red Sea before Israel, will manifest His power and release them. "And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that up in my day that I do, and I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him" (Malachi 3:17). If at that time the blood of Christ's faithful witnesses, that she might not like the blood of the martyrs, be the seed, which would be the fruit of God's harvest. Their loyalty could not be evidence, to convince others of the truth, because the waves of mercy would break the hardness of heart and never returned. If the righteous are now prey to their enemies, it would bring great joy to the prince of darkness. The Psalmist says, "For he hid me in His tabernacle in the day of trouble, hid me in the secret place of his village, he carried me on the rock" (Psalm 26:5). Christ says, "Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors, take refuge for a moment, until the indignation: for behold the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity" (Isaiah 26:20 , 21). Miraculously, will be the release of those who waited patiently for His appearing, and whose names are in the book of life.
