New Wine 2
Before we begin I’d like to thank all my readers for their continued patronage. I did not make God’s rules, I simple report on insights provided by revelation. Neither I nor my post are infallible and should therefore be scrutinized appropriately. Second Timothy 2:15 says, “Study to show thyself approved unto God…” So, please leave comments or criticisms should you find discrepancies – theologically speaking anywhere within my posts.

Salvation during the Great Consummation
Be aware, no one (not one person) who is not currently saved will receive salvation once the Great Consummation has begun. Only after the Great Consummation has concluded will Jesus offer salvation to the nation of Israel, offering each Israelite the glorious gift of salvation through His shed blood (Romans 11:24–29). The salvation message offered to Israel at this time will be formed under the same sacrifices, rules, and guidelines as that offered to Christendom. God’s Word declares there is no other name under heaven given by which all must be saved. That name is Jesus, the only begotten Son of God!
Can we Lose Our Salvation?
I have often marveled at those who declare we cannot forfeit our salvation. Bear in mind, we are not enslaved to a walk with God or forced to enjoy the saving grace of Christ’s sweet mercy. I know it is unimaginable to relinquish Christ’s mercy once engendered; however, the foolishness of humanity never ceases to amaze. I am not attempting to say we can accidentally lose our salvation to Satan’s wicked hand or depression’s burning sorrows or through evil times breaking our spirit. Significantly, scripture indicates that nothing can take us out of the hand of our God. Salvation cannot be stolen away – to do so is impossible.
So to what do I speak/write?
- The Mark of the Beast and bowing before the Beast or his image
The Body of Christ has been warned for millennia; so much so, even the secular world knows better than to receive the Mark of the Beast! With the overabundance of End Times movies, 666 stories and the “Don’t put the Mark on your forehead” warnings, nearly everyone everywhere knows better than to put “The Mark” on their right-hand or forehead.
It is curious then, how will the Devil pull it off and what will be the marketing tool which will provoke foolhardy Christians into mistakenly, accidentally implanting the Mark of the Beast into their bodies?
What is even harder to see is why Christians would bow before the Beast (Anti-Christ) or his image.
Yet – this is what the warning in Revelation 14 is all about:
9 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11 NKJV)
- I ask you… To whom does the warning apply?
- What would be the point of warning the unsaved?
- What good would the warning do during the Great Consummation when the Mark is issued and no one can be saved who is not currently saved? (For proof of this statement see chapter 13 This Side of the Whirlwind page 219 “No New Salvations.)
You see, the warning can only apply to the Body of Christ, those who are already saved. You cannot lose something you do not have and those without salvation are already destined to receive the full measure of God’s Wrath in Judgment. So the warning would be moot to the unsaved or damned.
The fact is… the idea Tribulation Saints will exist after the Rapture is absurd. Scripture will not support the concept. Oh I know, many a pastor or believer has postulated such an idea, but it is not scriptural.
Revelation 7:14 does not support such a claim either; rather, it refers to us, those who will live through the Tribulation Period of the Great Consummation. Remember, (After the Tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened and the moon will not shine her light, and the stars shall fall from the heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven…)
Every point I’ve made in this post is corroborated in This Side of the Whirlwind, a book given by revelation from God.
Bear in mind, there are more than nine areas within scripture which declare (… he that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved.) Matthew 24:13 KJV
Here are several additional verses which confirm that [we of the Latter Days generation] must endure the Tribulation Period until the time of the end. Matthew 10:22; Mark 13:13; Revelation 2:7; 2:10 and 2:17; Revelation 3:5, 3:12, and 3:21; Revelation 21:7. There are more proofs.
Last thought: If a person who is not saved by Christ decides to receive the Mark what would be the difference in their judgment?
The answer: there would be zero difference.
The answers to these questions and more can be found in the Bible and This Side of the Whirlwind.
 Joel 1:5–20, John 9:4–5, 2 Thessalonians 2:1–12.
 Acts 4:12.
Be safe and prepare for the remaining time is short.
