Scriptures For Overcoming The Tribulation
(Verses on the Tribulation...)
OVERCOMING THE ENEMY
- Jer. 17:5 - Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength., and who's heart turns away from the Lord. ["Trusts in man," or relying on the Babylonian system of commerce, accepting the viewpoints of the world in order to seek safety with the godless masses, is to throw away one's faith and leave one open to the same curse that's falling on the unbelieving world.]
- Psalm 66:5-10- They plot injustice... Surely the mind
and heart of man are cunning; But... suddenly they
will be struck down. [God] will turn their own tongues
against them and bring them to ruin; All who seek them
will shake their heads in scorn. All mankind will
fear, they will proclaim the works of God and ponder
what he has done. Let the righteous rejoice in the
Lord and take refuge in him; Let all the
upright in heart praise him. [Though we prepare for the days ahead as just a common-sense measure, it is God who will enable us to carry on when the world turns against us. We are not obligated to surrender to the antichrist: we are obligated to apply Absolute Faith in the promises of God to deliver us. These promises have not expired: our burden to bear is to keep a ferocious guard against any opinions from the worldly that might erode our faith]

CLUES ABOUT THE NATURE OF THE TRIBULATION
- Isaiah 33:19 ...those people of an obscure speech,
with their strange, incomprehensible tongue. [Imagine how U.N. "Peacekeepers" would look to us civilians as troops from other nations patrol our streets, deciding which of us are "Terrorists," then confiscating our "suspicious" houses, cars and cash before escorting us to a "Hospitality Center" camp at the point of a gun]
- Isaiah 5:24b - 27 - for they have rejected the law of the LORD
Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel.
Therefore the LORD's anger burns against his people;
his hand is raised and he strikes them down.
The mountains shake,
and the dead bodies are like refuse in the streets.
Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away,
his hand is still upraised.
He lifts up a banner for the distant nations,
he whistles for those at the ends of the earth.
Here they come,
swiftly and speedily!
Not one of them grows tired or stumbles,
not one slumbers or sleeps;
not a belt is loosened at the waist,
not a sandal thong is broken. [Those from cultures whose social evolution bypassed the "Renaissance" period may be inclined to view modern men and women as "infidels" and take a casual attitude toward their well-being.]
- Isaiah 13:10-13, 15-18 -
The stars of heaven and their constellations
will not show their light.
The rising sun will be darkened
and the moon will not give its light.
I will punish the world for its evil,
the wicked for their sins.
I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty
and will humble the pride of the ruthless.
I will make man scarcer than pure gold,
more rare than the gold of Ophir.
Therefore I will make the heavens tremble;
and the earth will shake from its place
at the wrath of the LORD Almighty,
in the day of his burning anger.
15 Whoever is captured will be thrust through;
all who are caught will fall by the sword.
Their infants will be dashed to pieces before their eyes;
their houses will be looted and their wives ravished.
See, I will stir up against them the Medes,
who do not care for silver
and have no delight in gold.
Their bows will strike down the young men;
they will have no mercy on infants
nor will they look with compassion on children.
