Heard,"It is I, be not afraid! There is no one like your God!  Run with your King into the Place of Unbridled Joy!"  



Whatever you are facing today, remember that Jesus said," I will never leave nor forsake you!"  It is not in God's nature to forsake you. It is not in His nature to give up on you, Child of God! The LORD Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged!



There is no one like our God! There is no one like our Abba Father! There is no one like Jesus! Who else can answer by fire? Who else can shut the mouths of lions? Who else can cause demons to flee? Who else can chase that troubling spirit away? Who else can pull you from the pit and lift you up to the Throne of God? Who else can bring down the tallest giant? Who else is the Lover of your soul? 



No one! No one! No one but Yahweh! Holy is His name. So stomp on the devil's head and run free with UNABANDONED and UNBRIDLED JOY! The God of peace shall soon crush Satan under your feet!! Celebrate your freedom today! Nobody like Jesus! 



"Beloved, It is I, be not afraid!  Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with My Righteous Right Hand. I will rescue from the mire of this world, and I will not let you sink. I deliver you from your foes and rescue you out of the deep waters that threaten to engulf you. 



"You need to hear the Word of the Lord, My Child. Your spirit man yearns to hear My truth amidst all the lies and chaos of the world. Men's words and opinions are empty and lifeless, But oh, My Word is LIFE and LIGHT to you! Who else is your Dread Champion who  goes before you and slays the dragon! Who else rescues you from your persecutors? NO one, Dear One. There is none like your God. 


“There is no one like your Abba Father, Yahweh, the Almighty God, Who rides across the heavens to help you, across the skies in Majestic Splendor! For I lift you up from the pit of despair, out of the miry clay; and I set your feet upon the Rock, and make your footsteps firm. 



"Do not worry about the enemy's schemes. Vengeance is Mine; I will repay. In due time their foot will slip; for their day of disaster is near, and their doom is coming quickly.



"And I will vindicate My People and have compassion on My Beloved when I see that your strength is gone. I am He who has gone before you! The Way Maker! I am drawing you after Me! 



"Let there be no other God before you. Who else can heal you of all your sicknesses and diseases? Who else can love you like I can, My Child? No one, no one, no one, but your Savior! No one but Yahweh!  


" Let this Truth of My Everlasting Love and Protection sink into the depths of your spirit. Come out of your wilderness of despair leaning on your Beloved! Let Us run! RUN with your King! 



"I, yes I, am the LORD, and there is no Savior but Me.  I alone decreed and saved and proclaimed— I, and not some foreign god among you.  "So you are My witness,” declares the LORD, “that I am God. Even from eternity I am He, and none can pluck you out of My hand!”



"Who else has translated you from the darkness and brought you into My Marvelous Light? No one! No one but Yahweh! No one but Yahshua Jesus! So RUN in the Freedom of the Son! Yes, My Child! 


"RUN with unabandoned and unbridled JOY! The devil cannot stand to be around My Joyful Ones. The JOY of the Lord is your strength! I have declared, "You are Mine!" When I act, who can reverse it? NO ONE! NO ONE! NO ONE! Take courage! It is I! Do not be afraid!"





UNABANDONED: Unrestrained or uncontrolled; uninhibited. Also, to go back to. Unbridled. (Like a horse runs with nothing restraining him, no reins!)



UNBRIDLED: Uncontrolled; unconstrained, unrestrained. With all restraints removed.  (of a horse, etc.) wearing no bridle.

What's the purpose of the tribulation?

By Pieter Kirstein 







Understand God's TRIBULA­TION purpose and stop ignoring what's already been declared in the prophets, for it shall not be according to man's word, but according to the Father's well established plan. 



The Spirit of God shall come to clear the threshing floors of His harvest fields and threshing floors  -  John 3:12  Whose fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly purge His floor, and gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

Matthew 13:37  He answered and said unto them, He that sows the good seed is the Son of man;

 38  The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

 39  The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the age; and the reapers are the angels.

 40  As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this age.

 41  The Son of man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;

 42  And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

 43  Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who has ears to hear, let him hear.





By Richard C. Trench



Richard C. Trench on the Meaning of "Tribulation"



"Let me illustrate my meaning somewhat more at length by the word 'tribulation.' We all know in a general way that this word, which occurs not seldom in Scripture and in the Liturgy, means affliction, sorrow, anguish; but it is quite worth our while to know how it means this, and to question the word a little closer. 



It is derived from the Latin 'tribulum,' which was the threshing instrument, or roller, whereby the Roman husbandmen separated the corn from the husks; and 'tribulatio' in its primary signification was the act of this separation. 



But some Latin writer of the Christian Church appropriated the word and image for the setting forth of a higher truth; and sorrow, distress, and adversity being the appointed means for the separating in men of whatever in them was light, trivial, and poor from the solid and the true, their chaff from their wheat, therefore he called these sorrows and trials 'tribulations,' threshings, that is, of the inner spiritual man, without which there could be no fitting him for the heavenly garner. 



tribulum: An ancient Roman sledge for threshing; a broad, heavy board set with many teeth of stone or iron. The tribulum is still in use in northern Africa.



Now consider in verse 13 how He calls His Zion Bride to arise and to thresh. 



Micah 4:

 1  But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established on the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.


 2  And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth out of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.


 3  And He shall judge between many peoples, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.


 4  But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken it.


 5  For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the LORD our God forever and ever.


 6  In that day, says the LORD, will I assemble those that are lame, and I will gather those that are driven out, and those that I have afflicted;


 7  And I will make them that are lame a remnant, and those that were cast far off a strong nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from that time forth, even forever.


 8  And you, O tower of the flock, the stronghold of the daughter of Zion, unto you shall it come, even the former dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem.


 9  Now why do you cry out aloud? is there no king in you? is your counselor perished? for pangs have taken you as a woman in travail.


 10  Be in pain, and labor to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail: for now shall you go forth out of the city, and you shall dwell in the field, and you shall go even to Babylon; there shall you be delivered; there the LORD shall redeem you from the hand of your enemies.


 11  Now also many nations are gathered against you, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion.


 12  But they know not the thoughts of the LORD, neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor.


 13  Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion: for I will make your horn iron, and I will make your hoofs bronze: and you shall beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gain unto the LORD, and their wealth unto the Lord of the whole earth.



You need to read Isaiah 24-27.



This is the entire context of the following prophecies in Malachi.



Malachi 3


1  Behold, I will send My messenger, and He will clear the way before Me. And the LORD, whom you seek, shall suddenly come to His temple, even the Angel of the Covenant, in whom you delight. Behold, He comes, says the LORD of hosts.


 2  But who can endure the day of His coming? 

 Are we not called to endure in Matthew 24:13  But he who endures to the end, the same shall be kept safe. And who shall stand when He appears? For He [is] like a refiner's fire, and like fuller's soap.


 3  And He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver. And He shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may be offerers of a food offering in righteousness to the LORD.


 4  Then the food offering of Judah and Jerusalem shall be pleasing to the LORD, as in the days of old and as in former years.


 5  And I will come near you to judgment. And I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those who extort from the hired laborer's wages, and turning away the widow, and the orphan, the alien, and not fearing Me, says the LORD of hosts.


 6  For I [am] the LORD, [I] change not. Because of this you sons of Jacob are not destroyed.

Now notice how God's THRESHING OF NATIONS CONTINUES through His manifested sons, who have themselves being purified and purged and cleansed as His Royal Priestly Bride in Malachi 3.


Malachi 4

 1  For behold, the day is coming, burning like a fire pot; and all the proud, and every doer of wickedness, shall be chaff. And the coming day will set them ablaze, says the LORD of hosts, which will not leave root or branches to them.


 2  But to you who fear My name, the Sun of Righteousness shall arise, and healing will be on His wings. And you shall go out and frisk like calves of the stall.


 3  And you shall trample the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day which I [am] preparing, says the LORD of hosts.


 4  Remember the law of Moses My servant, which I commanded to him in Horeb for all Israel, the statutes and judgments.


 5  Behold, I [am] sending you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.


 6  And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the sons, and the heart of the sons to their fathers, that I not come and strike the earth [with] utter destruction.


We are the coming THRESHING kingdom also confirmed by the Spirit of prophecy in Daniel 2: 31  You, O king, were seeing. And, behold! A great image! That great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before you. And its form [was] dreadful.


 32  This image's head [was] of fine gold; his breast and his arms [were] of silver; his belly and his thighs [were] of bronze;


 33  his legs [were] of iron; his feet [were] part of iron and part of clay.


 34  You watched until a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image upon its feet [which were] of iron and clay, and broke them to pieces.


 35  Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were broken to pieces together. 




And they became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors. And the wind carried them away, so that no place was found for them. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.




43  And as you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mix themselves with the seed of men. But they shall not cling to one another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.


 44  And in the days of these kings, the God of Heaven shall set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed. And the kingdom shall not be left to other peoples, 

 but it shall crush and destroy all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.


 45  Because you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it crushes the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold, the great God has made known to the king what shall occur after this. And the dream is] certain, and its meaning is sure.



The above is the prophetic context of Matthew 24, Luke 17 and Luke 21.
