Ya’ll really need to listen to this song in person…but the lyrics will have to do. My five year old pulled out an old CD of mine from college and we started jamming out!

I was really worshiping and then this song came on. Very powerful if you listen to it!

We are a nation of theologically STARVING Christians. The Chrisitians here know more about the Beatles than Jesus! Sick!

Arm yourself…the war is on for your mind…many are losing….

How will you stand if you don’t understand God’s Word???


...

Think long and hard

about our world today... 

what needs to be said, 

and what I need to say. 

We're a tower of Babel 

built on anti-philosophy, 

Neitzche in the west 

and Krishna in the east. 

 

War rages on through generations. 

All of these Christians 

abandoned their stations. 

A whole world around us, 

and we've ceased to reach. 

An army of soldiers, 

we've neglected to teach. 

But, it's dim and not pitch black. 

The truth will prevail. 

If our God is for us, how can we fail? 

No surer hope has ever been rested. 

But for our adversary's worthy, 

prepare to be tested. 

 

Hoo, Hah. 

How will you stand 

if you don't understand? 

 

Hoo, Hah. 

Fight like a man, scriptures in hand. 

 

And here we stand

naked, barehanded futily prepared

for the blows to be landed. 

Presuppositions is all you can stand on. 

Can you twist their wrist 

when they lay a hand on? 

Learn how to fight 

from words on a paper. 

learn from the shoguns, 

Bahnsen and Schaeffer. 

Invincible army, 

Holy Spirit our general. 

Weapons are formed 

form most precious of minerals. 

 

Kids in universities, 

drowning in an ocean 

of apostate philosophy. 

We need apologetic instruction... 

mental reconstruction. 

Ignorance reduction, 

to halt the mass abduction. 

Evangelical mind 

has been scandalized.

Wisdom and truth 

have been vandalized,

by the unevangelized. 

No truth in a world 

that is randomized. 

Expose the lies 

no matter how they're disguised.

Hoo, Hah. 

How will you stand 

if you don't understand? 

 

Hoo, Hah. 

Fight like a man, scriptures in hand.

Many honest people in the body of Christ are wholeheartedly following after a terribly faulty teaching about the rapture of the church.

 

What does the Bible actually say is the chronology of events leading up to our miraculous trip up in the clouds? Look at these well known scriptures:

 

“According to the Lord’s own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words.”

 – 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18

 

 “Immediately after the distress of those daysthe sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’ At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.” 

 – Matthew 24:29-31

 

 “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

 – Luke 21:25-28 

 

“I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?”

Revelation 6:12-17

 

“After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”

 – Revelation 7:9 (notice this is AFTER chapter 6’s description of the sun turning black etc.)

 
1) So there is ONE EVENT called THE DAY OF THE LORD
2) It will be preceded by a terrible tribulation (previously unmatched in history)
3) We will know it is THE DAY OF THE LORD because there will be unmistakeable GREAT SIGNS in the Sun, Moon, Stars, & Heavens
4) THE DAY OF THE LORD will COMMENCE and the terrible tribulation will END with Jesus’ Personal Return to Earth.
5) ALL eyes will see Him, EVERYBODY, we “who remain” as well as the wicked.
6) The DEAD in CHRIST will RISE. THE RESURRECTION!
7) THEN and only then will He will gather us from the ends of the Earth.
The Bible is VERY clear on the chronology of events, in my opinion. If you can twist the words of Jesus into some other chronology do not write me about it. I don’t twist the words of Jesus.
