“Bet you thought I wasn’t ever coming by again, right?” He whispered in my ear.
“Oh, I wasn’t worried. I knew you couldn’t stay away.” I tried to sound nonchalant, but he knew I didn’t mean it. I saw he was not wearing his armor.
I jumped up, took his hand, and led him inside.
The cats saw him and jumped off the bed. He sat down and then leaned back on some pillows. As always, I sat in the chair across from him.
“You look tired. I didn’t think angels got tired?” I was fascinated at how his wings spread behind him in a big V.
“It isn’t a physical tiredness like you souls get, it is more of a mental tiredness over seeing all the evil that never changes or stops.”
“Would you like something to drink or eat? I have fruit juices, cheese and hard-boiled eggs.”
“Just some juice would be nice.”
He stretched his arms up and wriggled down onto the pillows.
I hurried to the kitchen, got out the largest glass I had and filled it with peach juice. When I handed the glass to him, he put his fingers over my hand and wouldn’t let go for a moment. I could see that mischievous grin, I loved!
He drank the juice and handed me the empty glass.
“Well, that was really good. So nice being waited on…I don’t usually get that type of service.”
“Oh, I know! Remember I saw you picking your own Manna.” We both laughed and then just sat looking at each other.
He sat up and suddenly looked very serious. “Jane, I need to let you know that things are getting very bad on earth. The prophets forewarned us and of course Revelation leaves nothing out that will take place. But now that the First Tribulation is beginning, it is horrible to see! Yahshua’s judgements grow more and more severe. Yet, those who are suffering, will not repent. They think by hiding among the rocks they can avoid His wrath!”
He looked at me with such pain in his eyes and then said, “Jane, so many on Earth that claim to be Christians, have so little understanding of the ways of Yahshua! I blame those that teach that the Rapture is going to whisk away everyone that claims to be a Christian. Do they not read in Acts that one must go through much tribulation to enter into the kingdom of God? Yahshua promised all would suffer tribulation in this world but to be of good cheer for He overcame the world. And John, when speaking to the churches, said he was their companion in tribulation!”
“Michael, my pastor taught that there is the wrath of men, wrath of the Lamb, wrath of Satan and the wrath of Yahweh. But true believers will never know the wrath of the Lamb or Yahweh. Many also do not realize there are two Tribulations, each 3.5 years long! Only the second vents the wrath of Yahweh!”
“That is true…and after the first one, is when I and my warriors will cast Satan and his angels down to earth. They will add to the horrors of the second Great Tribulation!”
“ Messiah talked about these things after our last Worship. And we saw the Seven Herald Angels receive golden trumpets. I read Revelation again when I came home. I cannot believe that people will not repent!” I paused, “And even after He sent other angels to proclaim the everlasting gospel! Messiah and Father Yahweh have been more than fair, in my opinion.”
