The word grace actually refers to his divine provision. That provision is documented in the 91st Psalm. We need to take very seriously what it tells us, for in it we find out how to endure unto the end. This introduces us to the main text of this article.
Let's break this verse down to specific parts: the word dwelleth implies a place of abode, were one frequents and remains for extended periods of time. The secret place is where one shuts himself in with the Lord as in his prayer closet, shutting out all other influences, and spending time in communion and fellowship; not only speaking to him in prayer but intently listening and responding to him as he speaks and imparts. The secret place also refers to being hidden and protected in a special secure place. It is actually a place of intimacy with Christ; a closeness that produces familiarity.
The more time you spend with him the more familiar you become with him. He reveals more of himself, giving more knowledge and understanding.
Preparing for the Last Days
He readily responds to those who seek him intimately because they demonstrate that they prefer to spend time with him instead of wasting time in pursuit of self-indulgence and the material and social things of this world. Intimacy is the privilege and comfort of being alone with him, to converse with him in solitude and hear his reply. He cherishes those that come to him in intimacy, and as such they become even more precious to him. Consider Jesus' disciples; of the twelve there were three that were closest and seemed special to him. With them he shared more revelation and experiences with.
As such, Peter, James and John were often considered insiders with Jesus. That is because they were more intimate with him; spent more time with him, asked questions of him and wanted to know him better. They were the intimate core of his disciples.
So we see that he gives special protection, provision, revelation, knowledge of himself and blessings to certain of his followers - the ones who seek him and dwell in that secret place of intimate fellowship. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. Being under his shadow means he stands between them and the bright sun, sheltering them from its intense heat.
This means he himself stands between you and your adversary; he will take the heat, the strikes, and whatever is directed for harm against you - if you dwell in the secret place of the most high. He is our refuge, our source of shelter; no earthly physical protection or shelter can compare with his. The fortress of God cannot be breached, shaken, brought down or even cracked; it stands strong.
Now this is a place of shelter that you can really trust. Psalm - "Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence". These may be physical or spiritual as set up or motivated by Satan. The Lord will steer you away or direct you around such snares, entrapments and surprise attacks of the enemy that would otherwise catch you unaware.
Luke - "And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting excessive partying , and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

Watch ye therefore, and pray always being in that secret dwelling place of intimacy with him , that ye may be able to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Special protection is provided those having intimate fellowship with him, dwelling in that secret place of the Spirit which is actually abiding in Him, the vine. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
How to Escape from the Great Tribulation
John - "I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. The weapons of the enemy strike the shield and buckler and not you. Note: the shield is hand held protection that you can use to face any incoming threat; the buckler is a tall barrier the you can hide behind and joins with the buckler held by the person next to you to form a wall of protection.
The Lord will not only cover you with his protection but he draws you close for warmth and comfort so that you feel his presence with you. He lets you know that you are precious to him, as illustrated as being under his wings and drawing his covering over you. If this applied to the relatively peaceable events surrounding Jesus first coming, how much more must it apply to His second? How can we learn to discern the times we will be going through? Since over chapters in the Bible carry messages about the Last Days, we would be wise to study them.
Those passages are there for a reason. Apparently, Jesus believes that His Church will need to know with an absolute assurance many vital things about the days ahead. Fortunately for us, the Lord is already raising up prophets with visions, dreams and even direct encounters with Jesus and the righteous angels so that we can have prophetic guidance in the days ahead. Unfortunately, the enemy is doing the same! All manner of misinformation, demonically inspired visions, rumors, and lies are being spread abroad in the land—just as Jesus foretold.
Should You Expect A Secret Rapture?
We must never be discouraged that there are so many false prophets, but keep seeking out the true ones. Here are guidelines for better listening. Not a fractured Body, but a living, loving whole, undivided by bitterness, jealousy and suspicion. To survive the troubled times ahead, we will need to be in close, committed fellowship with other believers. That means we will need to trust each other and sacrificially serve one another at more than superficial levels. They not only know the scriptures, but they are able to listen for direction, encouragement and correction coming directly from Him.
The truth is that we should all be doing this now! None of us want to fall during the days ahead. We want to walk faithfully, lovingly and bravely through them. And pride can be very difficult to see in ourselves. We have been forewarned both about the perilous times that are coming and of the danger that fear itself will hold for any who have not learned to vanquish this formidable temptation. That only makes every problem worse!
Worse than that, it can even lead a frightened person to abandon the faith, rather than stay faithful in the face of persecution. Not everything has a purely spiritual answer. This world is NOT going to get better under the rule of man. Mans time for rule is coming to an end. The signs are there in black and white only a fool would ignore them now!!!
Please watch the video below. We know from scripture, that there will be a cashless system in place on earth, during this end time and that every human, will have to receive there own unique number, with a mark that must be received, on either the right hand or the forehead. But for thousands of years this mark has baffled all theologians. So what could this mark be that the world must except?
Please watch the video below it will explain exactly what the Mark of the Beast is!!! A new book about "the disturbing satanic influences in America" dedicates two whole chapters to VeriChip and a related technology known as radio frequency identification, or RFID. The book, titled "The Resistance Manifesto," equates Veri-Chip with "the mark of the beast," which the Bible's book of Revelation describes as a demonic numbering system for people on the earth.
For more info. This has never happened at any time in all of human history, or could it ever have been implemented, but it is not an event far away now. There is enough technology available, to monitor this huge world wide project and with computer assistance is well within the grounds of possibility.
The micro-chip is now ready to be distributed throughout the world. All the governments are waiting for is an opening, or an excuse to implement a legislation to make the chips mandate and compulsory. This reality is on your door step. When the mark of the beast is enforced, the true Christians will and must refuse this mark at all cost. If refuse, they will be hunted down and persecuted for refusal to except it and will be classed as outlaws.
Or mans? But you will have to decide soon like itor NOT. With all the unrest in the east and world poverty along with the nations on the verge of bankruptcy. There will be a need to control civil unrest and this will be a way to control humans and keep civil order. They will have full control over the food chain and if you have no mark or chip, you will not be allowed in the places where they are distributing food and medical health care.
If you are a Christian or call yourself a follower of Yahshua and refuse to listen to the bibles warnings you will die during the time ahead. The bible makes it very clear by the parable of the 10 virgins. This illustration was for the end time Church and that end time Church is us. The 5 wise saw clearly what laid ahead and stored food and oil and had enough provisions to get them through the times ahead. But the 5 foolish virgins did not and went hungry. They even asked the 5 wise virgins for some of there provisions.

- Quintet f minor - Score.
- Imaginary Men?
But the 5 wise virgins said sorry, we only have enough for our selves. So if your a Christian and can see what is clearly lying ahead. Will you ask God for wisdom and start to prepare? Or will you do nothing and just say I will leave that for another time? Please read below the biblical warnings of God from the days of old.
It's time to prepare and fill the lamps beloved. The hour draws late. Please watch all the video below and be blessed. While teaching on Bible prophecy I often point out that Jesus mentioned that famine is one of the signs of the Beginning of Sorrows Matt. This usually leads into a discussion of the rise in food prices and the impact that natural disasters are having on food supplies. It is about this time that I am asked if it is okay to store food. Some people seem to have the impression that storing food is a sin, or at the very least, it demonstrates a lack of faith. It does.
Simply put, God intended to send a great natural disaster upon the earth the Flood so He commanded Noah to gather a variety of food and store it on the Ark for him, his family and the animals. Could God have spoken food into existence anytime Noah or the animals needed it? Of course, He could. He commanded Noah to gather food and store it. Did God provide for Noah? Of course! He provided food for Noah to gather and plenty of time for him to gather it.
Noah was obeying God and acting by faith when he built that Ark and put food on it. In Genesis chapter forty-one, Pharaoh dreamed about seven fat cows and seven lean cows. He had a second dream about seven fat ears of corn and seven thin ears of corn. Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt. This is a second story about God planning to send a natural disaster upon the earth. Did God provide for His people? God blessed Egypt with bountiful harvests and more food than they needed for seven years.
And let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities. It is important to understand that God often provides for His people before they have a need. He provided the seven fat years before He sent the seven lean years.
