Angels Blinding and Binding before the End Times
 by Jen Shroder
Permission to repost at will

Christians have pondered what we call the rapture for centuries, when Jesus comes for all of His own and we ascend into the skies with Him. Some Christians believe Jesus will come before the tribulation, the terrible end times. Some believe He will come after. I asked God about that because it seemed to me the Bible said Jesus would come for us before the tribulation, except in Matthew 13:30 puzzled me, Jesus explains to His disciples the parable of the harvest. That a man came and sowed seed and while he slept, his enemy came and sowed tares (weeds). When it was time for the harvest, he told the reapers to first bind together the weeds to be burned and then gather the wheat.

At first, this looked like the reapers (angels) first deal with the weeds (unbelievers), which doesn't fit with our being raptured prior to the burning/tribulation, but He showed it to me:

Jesus explained to His disciples that the man is the "Son of Man," the field is the world, the good seed are the children of the kingdom and the bad seed are the children of the wicked one. The enemy is the devil, the harvest is the end of the world and the reapers are the angels.

I asked God why the reapers/angels were FIRST told to bind together the weeds/sons of satan to be burned. It looked like, according to this parable, that the burning (tribulation) would come first.

God showed me that the weeds are not burned, they are bound together "to be burned." I asked Him, "then how do angels bind them together?" And He answered, "by blinding them."

(shock) That verse that always shook me came to my mind:

"He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, that I should heal them." John 12:40

I believe the age of grace is about over, indeed, I believe the angels have been binding together the weeds. LOOK at how America has polarized! The culture war. The lines are distinctly drawn. Few remain in the gray as conservatives and liberals rail against each other over social issues. The blindness of what liberals are doing has long amazed Christians. Both sides cannot understand the other.

So is God evil that He would bind and blind people from His truth? Certainly not! For Godís grace and patience have been offered over the ages as Christians pray for Jesus to come. But there comes a time when God has said "enough"

"Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up into vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful. Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them." (Romans 1:24 )

(biting lip) umm, has anyone seen the news lately? I know itís always been bad, but, my gosh, our world is going insane.

I believe that President Bush has been given for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people, because he professes his faith. I know and have heard all the accusations against him, even by Christians, but I look for the fruit, and the fruit is that the political climate on the hill has been changed dramatically as we wait to see what will be decided on many issues. I am hopeful that President Bush has done as much as he can with what he has been given, but the fate of our nation is not in his hands. He has been "wise as a serpent and as innocent as a dove" (Matthew 10:16) but a leader cannot force his people to turn around. Moses led, the people rebelled, and the consequences were severe as a whole generation did not make it to the promised land and died in the wilderness.

"Seek you the LORD while He may be found, call you upon Him while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon." (Isaiah 55)

God has been abundantly pardoning to all that have come for 2,000 years. But you must come. As the angels blind and bind those who shake their fist at God, it is possibly too late for some. But of that, only God knows. Today is the day of salvation, seek Him and live while you can!

The Village Voice has pointed at me as a representative of what Christians believe, and how we believe about our President Bush. But I am only one Christian. I have never shared these views with anyone before now, and indeed, hadnít even looked to find Scriptures regarding the President until Rick Perlstein of Village Voice asked. To say that my views represent the Christian view would be an honor that does not belong to me.

If you want to know God, get a Bible, (the book of John is a great place to start) and ask the Holy Spirit to show you. Find a church but ALWAYS CHECK what the pastor says with what the Bible and the Holy Spirit show you. A good pastor would welcome that.

I can't recommend e-sword enough. They provide free Bible study software that gives easy access to the Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic definitions.

May God be with you in these dark times ahead, may His face shine upon you, and always be comforted as you watch the news, the Bible describes times like this and says if you know God, do not fear. God has a plan and a perfect ending. Amen.
