King Jesus Comes For His Bride
   
 

Having made herself ready, the remnant believers of Hopeland are worshiping the Lord together as they await the King's return. They have vowed to stick together no matter how loud the hissing becomes outside. Consecration to stay separate from a world that does not believe in a rapture, and devotion to spiritual purity has bonded the called out scattered sheep the King rounded up. They want to honor the Lord's request and make an endtime statement to others watching them that they have prepared themselves for departure.

Since no one knows the day or hour, no one really knows how much longer it will be. But the signs of the times indicate it cannot be much longer. As the vision reveals, the people who make the rapture do so because their love for their King is strong.

   
 

On Top of the World

  Princess and her companions on top of the world
 

Jeannette saw the princess and her companions on top of the world symbolizing their having applied the anointing oil with its myrrh component of separation for purity. On the edge of eternity, they are spending their last days outside the world breathing in the King's messages, worshiping Him, and shouting forth praises to His awesome name which warn people to prepare as they have for rapture in order to avoid the coming judgment. This is their meat about which the world knows nothing [John 3:32].

  drought of the true Word of God

Because the earth looked very dry to Jeannette due to a drought of the true Word of God that the prophet Amos prophesied would come if God's people refused to hearken to the warnings He sends about fraternizing with the world [8:11], Jeannette sensed that something was amiss. As has happened in type to Israel, God's client nation in the Old Testament, so will happen in antitype fashion to America, God's client nation in the New Testament. Knowing that sound judgment in the church world is twisted, and holiness is costly, many Christians are following the crowd like in Isaiah's day.

 
 
Isaiah 59:14-15
verse 14 ... judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.
verse 15 Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the Lord saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.

Without controversy, the world's multicultural society has trended even evangelical preachers to seek new ways to promote peace regardless of the ultimate outcome. Programs exist for the bottom line instead of the health of flocks. Fleecing the sheep continues to motivate the prosperity gospel in spite of the fact that multiplied millions continue to pad the accounts of mega ministries. Wisdom speaks against such action.

 
 
Proverbs 22:16
verse 16 He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want.

Could this path of worshiping the dollar be the Laodicean road to apostasy? Jesus said He would spew out the rich Laodiceans if they did not repent [Revelation 3:16,19].

 
The Winds of Darkness
 

Meanwhile the spiritually pure will undergo serious conflicts with the push on them to conform to political correctness. The heat of hostility against holiness becomes fierce in the last days as Jeannette saw in the second vision. It was hard for the patriots of Hopeland to stand against the whirlwind of opposition, to remain pure and humble, not following in the footsteps of compromised truth.

You cannot ride the fence and stay separate from spiritual impurity. The winds are too severe. They will blow you away from holding fast to your dedication. A plethora of worldly enticements are working constantly to tempt one off course. That is why people seeking deliverance from the encroaching darkness must bathe in the oil of truth and become saturated with Holy Spirit power in order to overcome the temptation to flow with the glow of the show. Bathing means that all flesh must be crushed and crucified.

After experiencing the fierce pressure of the winds of the times, the remnant of believers overcame and heard the sound of deliverance. Because these are prepared virgins, the breaking of the sound barrier was likely the trumpet blast calling them into the sky. Note that Jeannette said she could not separate the lift off of the bride, the earth cracking, and the King and His army coming. She was bewildered at the confluence of multiple scenes. This is because all actions denoted the end of the short-lived Dispensation of Preparedness and the beginning of the tribulation period. So the end of time for preparedness has come to a close, which is the reason for the silence.

 
 
Revelation 8:1
verse 1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
   
 
The Rapture
Trumpet Angel
 

Silence in heaven indicates that the seven angels who are to blow the seven trumpet judgments are about to commence their work. Since it is no secret what is to come having been disclosed by the book of Revelation, the gravity of the upcoming tribulation demands a time of contemplation about its horrific events. As Jeannette saw, the earth starts imploding after the saints are lifted off due to the ensuing turmoil contained in the book of Revelation. The furor begins when the majestic steed on which King Jesus rides lifts his hoof and pounds the earth. Thankfully, the remnant bride will have been translated from Hopeland to Graceland and will not see earth's devastation as it unfolds.

 
 
Isaiah 26:20-21
verse 20
Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, (the rapture) and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation (the tribulation) be overpast.
verse 21
For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

The book of Revelation is not a chronological book even though most biblicists seem to interpret it that way. The Lord showed me a long time ago that the seals are merely a table of content to reveal what the rest of the book is about. There are numerous overlaps in the dissertation between the seals, trumpets, and bowls; so the book must be put in congruence with the book of Daniel and the rest of the Bible. Congruence does not imply chronology.

The first four seals revealing the four horsemen of the apocalypse have already begun running. Their work begins prior to the beginning of the tribulation, and at this point in the vision, they have already caused many of the birthpangs that bring forth the Millennial Kingdom. I have spoken to this matter in previous visitations of the Lord on our website. So I will move on to explaining that the rapture happens between the fourth and fifth seal. The martyred saints of the fifth seal are believers who did not make the rapture and are wasted throughout the tribulation period – some during the first half and some during the second half.

After the preview of the first six seals, the seventh one starts the trumpet judgments which begin the awful events that cause men's hearts to fail for fear of what is coming. At this point, the raptured church is in heaven at the wedding feast having been lifted off earth prior to the silence preceding the first trumpet blast. The silence assures that the angels hear their orders perfectly. After the silence, King Jesus signals the first angel to begin his job of pouring out judgment on the earth.

The bowl judgments culminate in Revelation chapter 16 and are so severe that I believe they all must happen on the last day of the tribulation immediately before the heavens open up for the Second Advent of King Jesus. As the heavens roll back, Jeannette saw tens of thousands of saints who made the wedding follow behind King Jesus, all on white horses like their King. They along with a host of angels come to witness the final wrap-up of the decimation of the Antichrist and his army by King Jesus alone.

 
 
Revelation 19:14
verse 14
And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

In verse 14 above, we see that the armies following the King are clothed in fine linen clean and white. These people must be the raptured saints of verses 7-9 who attended the marriage supper of the Lamb. At the end of the wedding feast, they mount their horses and accompany Jesus to earth to watch Him reclaim earth from the usurper Antichrist and his father satan. The seed of the woman will at this time vanquish the seed of the serpent as prophesied in Genesis 3:15, and culminate the struggle between righteousness and unrighteousness.

   
 
One Event, Many angles
   
 

Jeannette said she did not understand seeing the rapture, earth's implosion, and Jesus' glorious return to end the rule of satan all at the same time. Here is one possible explanation. It is sort of like watching three television screens side by side each one portraying a dissimilar segment of the same event. It is like seeing the event from different camera angles. All three of the scenes in the second vision reveal different episodes of the tribulation period which occurs over a period of several years. Jeannette sees them all at once, but she can only write about them one at a time.

 
Watching three T.V.'s

Jesus' return in His Second Advent is two-fold. The first time He shows up is to seize His bride off the world before the wrath of God starts judging sin. That was the first time He appeared to Jeannette on His white stallion. At that appearance, only prepared believers see Him as He lifts them off earth, which is why Jeannette saw King Jesus come twice in the second vision. The Bible teaches that Jesus makes two appearances at His Second Advent. He comes at the beginning of the tribulation to get His bride who alone sees Him, and He comes again at the end when every eye shall see Him.

Jesus' horse's hoof pounds the earth and shatters it symbolizing the sudden destruction that the tribulation period brings to earth [1 Thessalonians 5:3]. The next time King Jesus shows up on His white steed is at the end of the fiery trial on earth. At that time, the heavens roll back, the veil between heaven and earth disappears, and all eyes see Him in His glory followed by His saints as we saw above.

Jeannette's dream and vision lines up perfectly with scripture. This is important because every time the Lord speaks it must: 1) Line up with scripture, 2) always report on the holiness of the Lord, 3) rebuke sin, 4) always build up the Kingdom of God in the church, 5) never build up the kingdom of man, 6) always point to the coming Messiah. All of these markers apply to the visitations of the lord that we have reported on this website. Rebuking sin is why many messages of the Lord are unacceptable to believers who only want to hear smooth things that will feather their comfort zone.
