Name of the LORD

As I look out into the World of People, I see a vast majority of people who do not have any interest in the "Name of the LORD."

In other words, they do not have any interest in knowing the "LORD"; either in being "Saved" and/or "in a personal awareness of His existence" in their lives.

The vast majority of the people of the world do not care about being "saved by grace, through faith," nor do they have any interest in "Worshiping the LORD in Spirit and in Truth".

Many years ago, I did a study on the verses just before this phrase in Joel 2:30-32 and Acts 2:19-21. During this study of these verses, I looked up every Hebrew and Greek word in several Lexicons, including three different Greek New Testament Texts; in order to make certain it is correct.

Afterwards, I made a composite of these verses and I believe there will be a great number of people call upon the "Name of the LORD" toward the very end of the Great Tribulation Period, just before the event of the  7th Trumpet Rapture;

In order of asking the "LORD to spiritually save them"; simply because they know their lives are about to be destroyed as they witness the destruction from Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Tsunamis on a worldwide basis during the 3 1/2 years of the Great Tribulation Period.

The Holy Spirit will still be saving souls up until the 7th Trumpet, which occurs at the very end of this time period; but not during the 7 Vials of the Wrath of God.

After the 7th Trumpet, there remains about 45 days which will be the Wrath of God upon non-believers (and those who are under the age of accountability, who are to young to make a profession of Salvation; if they die, they are simply allowed to enter Heaven, because they are in the "Safe State," being in a "State of Non Accountability") who survive through Trumpets 1-7.

They will enter the Seven Vials of the Wrath of God and some will survive and enter the Millennial Reign and still be given the chance to be "Saved by Grace through Faith" as they too will have to call upon the "Name of the LORD" in order to be Spiritually Saved.

 

Joel 2: [30] And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. [31] The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. [32] And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.


A composite of the Hebrew words for Joel 2:30: And I will show a token, a sign and wonder in the visible arch of the sky where the clouds move and throughout all the earth, in the fields, in the country, in the wilderness and it will have the appearance of blood, along with a burning, hot flaming fire, with columns of cloudy dust, smoke and vapor.


A composite of the Hebrew words for Joel 2:31: The brilliant sun, from the rising of the sun in the east to the sun rays in the arch ways of the sky, will be changed into darkness, as if it were night and the moon will take on the appearance of blood before the great and noble, fearful and terrible day in which Jehovah, the self-Existing One, the Eternal Lord shall come.



Acts 2: 19] And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: [20] The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: [21] And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

 

A composite of the Greek words for Acts 2:19: And I will bring forth a rare event so extraordinary, it will inspire wonder, for it will be in the elevated area of the sky and a token of these events, will be throughout the entire regions under the surface of the soil, of all the land of the world, for it will be a visible wonder of flowing substance like blood, of flashes of lightening and fire, with a mist of smoke.


A composite of the Greek words for Acts 2:20: The rising of the sun in the east and the rays of daily light will become as an outlining shadow and the bright shining moon, will appear to be a blood red color, before that mighty and visible day in which the One in supreme authority will come.




If there is one thing I have learned in my 57 years of life; it is very difficult to tell people the Truth...

People will generally believe a lie; a 1,000 times, before they will believe a single statement of Truth; especially Spiritual Truth.

Most people, as is the case throughout history; will actually believe a Spiritual Lie, to the very point until their moment of death and they will despise anyone else who tries to offer the Truth to them...

This has been one of the greatest mysteries of life that I have experienced in dealing with people; as this seems to be past my understanding.

For the time being, as I am getting toward the later years of my life, for the most part, I am focusing mostly on my personal life, towards learning more of the Bible, as I've been spending more time reading myself and less time being concerned with the lives of other people; as they mostly seem not to have any interest in the Bible or anything of the Spiritual nature; which of course seems to be just the normal pattern of life...

Here are a few notes from another page on this Website and here are a few additional links that might be helpful. Some of the following Scriptures may seem different than the K.J.V. or other English translations; it's simply because I have checked out several Greek Lexicons and three different Greek New Testament Texts and then made a composite of the verses, in order to help understand the contents better. In most cases, I also looked at 9 to 17 different English Translations for any additional word meaning, as I truly want to understand what was being said; therefore, this is the best of my ability towards providing an insight to these verses.

I have not changed the Scriptures; as I once was accused of; but simply provided a clearer view of the Scriptures, based upon the Greek New Testament word meaning, three Greek Texts and several English Translations that might aid in this effort.


The Disciples Asked The Lord Three Questions


 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and His disciples came to [Him] for to show Him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? Verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. And as He sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately, saying,


Tell us, when shall these things be? And what [shall be] the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? Matthew 24:1-3.


Tell us, when shall these things be? And what [shall be] the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?  Mark 13:4


And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? And what sign [will there be] when these things shall come to pass? Luke 21:7


The Answer To The 1st Question

     The answer to question #1: The destruction of the Temple occurred in 70 A.D. by Roman legions under General Titus and was besieged by the Emperor Hadrian in 135 A.D.


The 2nd And 3rd Questions

#2. What will be the sign and token to indicate and signify, when these predictions and events are about to take place, to be accomplished and fulfilled, come to pass and happen; regarding the coming and bodily presence of your return?


#3. And of the entire, full, completed and specific period of time, of the end of the age and of the end of the world?


The Answer To The 2nd And 3rd Questions

For the Gentile nations, the heathen and pagan people, will rise and move up against and among one another bordering nations and kingdom against kingdom, one place of reign touching another; and there shall be famines, a lack of food, causing destitution for people being without food; and pestilences, a plague of diseases; and a shaking of the ground, causing it to tremble, shake sideways, back and forth, for the earth will be shaking in divers or various places, down through its’ distribution with intensity, in many locations. But all these are the beginning, of the grief, the first of the troubles, sorrows, of the birth pains and travail.

Matthew 24:7-8.


For then shall be great and mighty, exceedingly sore affliction, anguish, oppression, burden and tribulation, such as not occurred since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. Matthew 24:21.


For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earth-shocks, earthquakes in divers or different and various places; and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows, like the early pains of childbirth.

Mark 13:8.


For in those days shall be affliction, anguish, burden, tribulation and trouble, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created, unto this time and never shall be.

Mark 13:19.


Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise up against and be moved against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earth-shocks, great earthquakes and great shaking shall be in every divers and different places; and famines, people without food;  and an outburst of disease and pestilences; and there will be great signs of terror and fearful sights from heaven.

Luke 21:10-11. 


The Sea and the Waves Roaring - In Luke 21:25-26:  

There will be signs in the sun and moon and stars; and upon the land of the earth, anxiety, anguish, doubt, fear and distress among the nations in a state of perplexity with bewilderment and confusion, as of a mental loss of having no way out, by reason and because of the billowing and vibration of the loud roaring confusion caused by the noise of the sea waves. Men’s hearts failing them and fainting from fear in apprehension, expectation and waiting for the things which are about to come upon the whole habitable earth, for the forces and powers of the heavens shall be moved and shaken.

Luke 21:25-26.


I saw in the night visions and behold, one like the Son of Man came with the clouds of heaven and came up, even unto the Ancient of days and they brought Him near before Him. And there was given Him dominion and glory and a kingdom that all people, nations and languages, should serve Him: His dominion is an everlasting and age-enduring dominion, which shall not pass away and His kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, nor brought to ruin.

Daniel 7:13-14.


And immediately and straightway, after the pressure and anguish; the tribulation of those days, the light of the sun will be obscure and darkened; and the moon shall not give her brilliant  light; and the stars shall fall from the sky of heaven and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken and stirred up; and then shall appear, the sign and token of the Son of man in the sky of  heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of the sky of heaven with force and power; and abundant, great glory, dignity, praise and honor. And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet and they shall gather and collect in the same place, together His elect, chosen and selected ones, from the four winds, from one end and extreme of heaven to the other.

Matthew 24:29-31.


But in those days, after that affliction, anguish, burden, trouble and tribulation, the light of the sun from the east shall be darkened and obscured; and the moon shall not give her brilliant light; and the stars of the extension of the sky of heaven shall be falling; and the powers that are in the sky of heaven shall be shaken, disturbed and stirred up. And then shall they see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with abundant, great power and glory. And then shall He send His angels and shall gather together and collect in the same place, His chosen and His elect from the four winds, from the extreme uttermost part of the earth, to the extreme uttermost part of heaven.

Mark 13:24-27.


And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of power and coming in the clouds of the sky of heaven.

Mark 14:62.


And there shall be signs, tokens and wonders in the light of the sun; and in the moon; and in the constellation of the stars; and upon the whole earth anguish, anxiety and distress of nations, with a state of perplexity and mental loss; standing in doubtful confusion as what to do, being in a bewilderment, having no way out; because of the loud roaring of the sea and the waves being in a roaring vibration; men’s hearts failing them for fear and having an apprehension, an expectation and an arrival; looking after those things which are coming on the land of the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be moved and shaken. And then shall they see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and abundant, great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then raise, look up and lift up your heads; for on this account, your deliverance and full redemption approaches and is drawing near.

Luke 21:25-28.


As The Days Of Noah & The Coming Of The Son Of Man


But even as, exactly like and just as the days of the patriarch Noah, after and in this manner and fashion, will be also and even the parousia; the coming near and aspect in the physical presence of the Son of Man. Even as, exactly like and just as, in the days that were before the inundation of the flood, they were eating and drinking; marrying and giving in marriage, until the day the patriarch Noah entered into the ark and knew not, until the inundation of the flood came and took them all away; so also, in this manner will be, the  parousia; the coming near and aspect in the physical presence of the Son of Man.   

Matthew 24:37-39.


And just inasmuch, according to, even as it was in the days of the patriarch Noah, after that in this like manner, on this fashion, so shall it be, in the days of the Son of Man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives and were given in marriage, until the day that the patriarch Noah entered into the ark and the inundation of the flood came and fully destroyed them all. Likewise, similar and also, in that manner as it was in the day of the patriarch Lot, they did eat, they drank, they bought in the market place, they sold and bartered, they planted in the earth, they were house-builders. But, moreover, the same day that the patriarch Lot went out of Sodom, it rained a lightning fiery fire and a sulfurous brimstone, from the sky of heaven and destroyed, and caused them all to perish.Even like and even thus, in the same way and manner, shall it be, in the day when the Son of Man is disclosed and revealed. 

Luke 17:26-30.


Watch Ye Therefore


Watch and be vigilant to be awake, therefore and accordingly, for you do not know what instant the hour of time your Lord, the One in Supreme Authority, the Master will appear and come. But know this, that if the head of the family, the master of the house, had known what manner of being on watch or guard, the thief and stealer would come, he would have kept a vigilant watchfulness and would not have permitted or left home, and suffered his house and home to be broken into and burglarized. Therefore, you be ready, prepared and adjusted, for in an hour of time as you seem not to think and to give account, the Son of Man appears and comes.

Matthew 24:42-44.


Watch, keep awake and be vigilant, therefore and accordingly, for you do not know when the Master, the One in Supreme Authority, the Controller and Lord of the house and home comes, at evening, the close of the day, or at midnight, or at the third watch of the cock crowing, or in the dawn, the day-break of the morning. Lest coming suddenly and unexpectedly, He finds you sleeping and lying down to rest. And what I say and put forth to you, I say unto all, even and the whole; to keep awake, be vigilant and watchful. 

Mark 13:35-37.


And take heed, beware and have regard to yourselves, lest or perhaps at any time, your heart, your thoughts and feelings be overcharged, pressed and weighted down with a seizure of pain of a headache, from a drunkenness of intoxication and from the care of this present life existence; so that day come upon you unexpected, suddenly and unawares. For in the manner, as a fastened trap and a tricked snare, shall it come on all them that dwell, reside and remain on the surface of the land, of the whole earth. Watch, keep awake, therefore and accordingly, pray, petition and make a request and beg as for oneself, always at every occasion and time, that you may be accounted, deemed entirely deserving and worthy, to escape and flee from all these things, that shall come to pass and to stand in front of, before, in the sight and presence of the Son of Man.

Luke 21:34-36.
