Who is Jesus?
9 When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained. 10 They called out in a loud voice, “How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?” 11 Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the full number of their fellow servants, their brothers and sisters, were killed just as they had been.
12 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, 13 and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. 14 The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
15 Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. 16 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! 17 For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can withstand it?”

“Over the past few Sunday morning services, we have been looking at the question, “Are we the last generation?” Listen, I believe we are in the last of the last days. I believe that soon the trumpet will sound and we, the church of Jesus Christ, will be caught up/raptured (1 Thessalonians 4:17) into heaven/paradise, and within 5 minutes of the rapture, we will find ourselves around the Throne of God (Revelation 4:2). Also, over the last few weeks, my messages have centered on Christ redeeming all creation to Himself. This past Sunday we opened up the Bible to chapter 6 of Revelation, and we saw the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse riding forward with their deception and destruction. Between chapter 6 and chapter 19 begins the documentary of what is going to happen on Earth when the church is taken out of the world. Jesus refers to the church as the “Salt of the Earth” (Matthew 5:13). As salt, we hold back the wrath of God. When the church is taken out of the way, no longer is the wrath that is to come upon the world held back, nor is the Anti-Christ restrained from being revealed (2 Thessalonians 2:3-8). When the Anti-Christ is revealed, the judgment of this world will begin. It begins with the Anti-Christ riding on the white horse of false peace, then the red horse of war and bloodshed comes, following him is the black horse of famine, and finally, the pale greenish horse of death and killing are released. Jesus' commentary on that time in Matthew 24 tells us that this will be a Great Tribulation like the world has never seen (Matthew 24:21-22). So, we are in the midst of messages that tell us what it will be like in this world for those who reject Christ while the Saints of God are in Heaven around the throne of God. Which place would you rather be? So, I ask you, do you know Jesus as your personal savior? Would you like to know Him? All you have to do is pray this prayer: “Dear God, I am a sinner and I need to be saved. So I ask you to forgive me for my sins and come into my heart. I repent and turn away from a life without you. I receive you into my life as my Savior. Thank you for saving me.” If you prayed this prayer, you need come to church where Christ is preached and salvation is taught in Him alone whether it is ChristWay or another Bible-believing church. Remember, there is no other name under heaven whereby you must be saved except at the name of Jesus Christ. God bless you, Pastor Mickey
