The Tribulation and the Time of Jesus’ Return

Q: Okay I promise I’ll leave you alone. You said that you see us in the times and half times. Isn’t that during the tribulation in Revelation? Could this mean that we are living in time of Jesus return?

A: Remember, the questions you have are questions many others are wondering about also.  There’s a great deal that is left unexplained in our world.  Now is the time in our lives that many things can be asked and answered.  So, I welcome any question that someone may have gnawing at them.

To answer your questions: I want to preface by saying that this whole topic can easily have (and has had) books written to explain this.  It would be worth it to read some of them.

Okay.  Here’s how I’ll start to answer this.  (Don’t worry too much if you don’t understand all of it.  It’s on the Internet and anyone who wants can return to it at will, reread it and understand a little more each time.)

Both the inner experience and the outer experience of that described in Revelations are possible in the same time frame.  The consciousness transformation described in Revelations must happen within individuals to prepare the way for Christ to return in the same body in which He ascended.  It is the opening within individuals to the Christ within, and the establishing of the Christ Spirit within the consciousness of individuals that sets in motion and brings forth the manifestation of Jesus Christ in the body.  One will not happen without the other.

The Christ Spirit within each individual is the Highest Self within the individual – that part of our consciousness that has never left the realm of the Father.  As Christ said, “I and the Father are One.”  and “I am in you, as the Father is in me.”  These statements can bring forth the awareness that within all of us, the Christ Spirit resides, and at the same time, is always One with the Father.  As we open to this very tangible aspect of who we are, and pour forth this aspect into the world, (as the pouring forth of the water at the wedding of Canaan)  our Higher Self – our Christ Self- we bring forth the Spirit of Christ into manifestation in the world we live in (the water turning into wine.)   As we continue to manifest the Christ Spirit through the different ways to manifest love, – the fruits of the Spirit, such as forgiveness, mercy, patience, humility, kindness, love, compassion, understanding, etc – we “lay down the palm fronds” that allow the Christ Spirit to enter into the manifested Earth – the manifested Earth being the body that was flesh and blood, made from the dust of the Earth, that ascended and will be reestablished at the designated time the Father determines.

So, in a vision, I saw that we are in the times and half times.  But, these “times and half times” are not designated by a calendar, but by the process of transformation within the hearts and minds of human beings.  Tribulations galore are happening in our world – not just to the world at large, but to individuals in this world.  The Earth itself does not experience our tribulations.  We as people experience them.

Yet, transformation is happening also.  It is each individual’s freewill choice to decide how and when to address the tribulations that each individual faces.  By facing these challenges in life, by transforming our response to life’s situations, our own transformation can occur.

Many souls now alive in the Earth work to continue to open to and manifest the Christ Spirit within through prayers, through meditation, through the study of dreams, through health efforts, through cooperation, through forgiveness, through courage, through loving kindness, through support of others, through service, and through any other way that any individual is inspired to manifest the Creative Spirit that guides our efforts – (meaning ‘creative ideas’.)

Metaphysically speaking:  the efforts to bring forth the Christ Spirit on this planet, have the effect of raising the vibration that exists in the world.  This raising of the vibration of the planet itself creates an environment which sets the stage for the Highest Vibration – the Christ Spirit vibration – the vibration of pure Love – the vibration of the Light of Love – the “God in Man” vibration to then enter into this physical realm.  It is as has been said before – “I stand at the door and knock.”  We need only prepare the way, and open the door.  And we are working towards that.

SIDE NOTE:  The calamities around the globe are NOT a demonstration of the vibration lowering in the planet.  If the vibration were not raising in the planet, we would not be having all these calamities.  This fact may not be easily understood, but it is much like turning up the heat under a pot of water to purify the water.  As the level of vibration raises – the temperature – the pot boils releasing the energy within the water.  If there were no raising of the temperature vibration – the pot would not boil – leaving all energy dormant within the water.  In this metaphor, the impurities of the water cannot be removed without the water boiling and turning to steam.  The transformation happens and the impurities are no longer part of the water. (Here, the impurities are hatred, prejudice, criticism, judging others, intolerance, selfishness, etc.)

To purify the water, the vibration must be raised.  Now, to continue with the water metaphor, the water – people – don’t always want to be purified.  The fact that the Earth is to become a place for Spirit to manifest in greater and greater ways means that those who do not choose transformation – the alignment with the Christ Spirit vibration – the alignment with brotherhood, loving kindness, patience, perseverance, forgiveness, acceptance, tolerance, understanding, etc, – may not be allowed to re-enter into another cycle of lives in the Earth, until such time that they have a closer matching vibrational environment allowing them to return to the Earth realm and work again on themselves, to face the impurities within themselves.

God is the God of Mercy and Patience – Infinite Mercy and Infinite Patience.  As such God will not allow any soul to be left behind but give opportunities for each soul to turn back to God until even the last soul is on the path back to God.  Christ is committed to this when He said, “He who would be first, must be last.” Mark 9:35.  “Whoever would be greatest among you must serve all the rest.”  Matthew 23:11.  He recognized this for Himself.

RETURN TO THE TOPIC:

There are predictions from thousands of years ago describing this time period and the potential that this time period can offer.  These are predictions that so many people have no idea even exist.  Each person has the right to choose whether they will participate and “wake up” to all that is possible, or “stay asleep” and see nothing out of the ordinary.  And this fact means that for some who are awake to this, they see that it is the times and half times, and for preparing the way of the Lord.  And for others, who are asleep to this, the see nothing and therefore, it isn’t.  Remember, 2000 years ago, to many, it was just another day as usual, with nothing special happening “according to them.”  But, to some, it was the Day of the Lord that came upon them.

This Jesus knows and hence why He said, “Many will say, ‘Here is Christ or there is Christ.”  pointing to external events and people coming forth fostering the belief that it is only an “external” event.  But, those who have opened to the Christ within, will know when that which is within them manifests in the world.  Those who work to continuously bring forth the Spirit of Love towards others, will recognize that Spirit of Love in the Earth from already having known it and shared it from within their own heart, mind and soul.

Finally, I add that Jesus is already at work in the Earth and has never stopped.  Many people have had personal direct encounters of Jesus and Mary.  We know of personal stories from Medjugorje, Fatima, Lourdes, and others.  One book I recommend is “I Am With You Always”, by G. Scott Sparrow.
