There is no deviation in the ways of God: they go straight forward.”
“God fulfills His Word–not your suggestions or feelings.”

The next time the world sees Jesus it will be a tragedy for them. He came the first time with compassion and mercy in His eyes. Rarely was there seen anger or justice. However, when He comes again, His countenance with be that of judgment. John wrote about His appearance twice:
“His head and his hair were white like wool, as white as snow. And his eyes were bright like flames of fire.” (Revelation 1:14, NLT)
“Then I saw heaven opened, and a white horse was standing there. And the one sitting on the horse was named Faithful and True. For he judges fairly and then goes to war. His eyes were bright like flames of fire….” (Revelation 19:11-12, NLT)
Now, first of all, do not get the Rapture mixed up with the Second Coming. Jesus does not come to earth with the Rapture, but He snatches His “Bride” up out of the realm of His enemy. He saves “her” from the day of destruction that is coming. The marriage supper has been prepared, and He will accept “her” now in her purity, unspotted from the world. There is a time of judgment first, and then there is celebration in heaven. Ahh, but He has not forgotten those who dared try and despoil His “Bride.”
The “marriage” takes place and there are those who are turned away. There is joy in heaven, but there is also a preparation for war. Justice must be met and handed out. The Judge, after the supper, will mount His white horse and go back to earth bringing justice and vengeance upon those who dared to speak against, dared to attempt to touch, dared to mark His precious Bride.
The “fire in His eyes” shows that He is jealous for His own. He is a jealous God and no one trifles with His beloved. The Old Testament prophets uttered, “Woe to the earth on that dreadful day.” There will be a sound, one like never heard before, it will be a “roaring from Zion.” The inhabitants who mocked Him will shudder and shake on that day.
Our job, until the trumpet sounds, is to not partake of the wickedness of this world.
