Raptured or Awakened? - Pieter Kirstein


Raptured or Awakened?


Many are waiting for the rapture whereas the Spirit of God seeks to awaken His people through the fires of Holy Spirit cleansing and awakening, by which He shall first come to be glorified in His people, to unveil His bride to the world and to manifest God's Government within the manifested sons, through which He shall do a mighty work throughout the earth, before the end can come.

So many awaits a so-called "RAPTURE" yet are ignorant of the fact that God first comes to His temple of living stones which has been cleansed by the fires of the Holy Spirit's preparatory work - Malachi 3

The Purifier

3 “Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will prepare and clear the way before Me. And the Lord [the Messiah], whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming,” says the Lord of hosts. 2 But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like launderer’s soap [which removes impurities and uncleanness].

Then of these purified, awakened body of fiery saints, which makes up the army of God, it is declared in the following chapter of the prophet Malachi

Malachi 4

4 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

2 But unto you that fear My name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts.

We are the coming Kingdom and we seek not to flee, but arise in the fullness of our God, because we have a great harvest to gather before God's wrath is poured out by which the earth shall be cleansed of the unrepentant reprobates.


4 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in 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 of Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

3 And He shall judge among many people, 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 hath 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 for ever and ever.

6 In that day, saith the Lord, will I assemble her that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted;

7 And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the Lord shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever.

8 And thou, O tower of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem.

9 Now why dost thou cry out aloud? is there no king in thee? is thy counsellor perished? for pangs have taken thee as a woman in travail.

10 Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail: for now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field, and thou shalt go even to Babylon; there shalt thou be delivered; there the Lord shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies.

11 Now also many nations are gathered against thee, 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 thine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass: and thou shalt beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gain unto the Lord, and their substance unto the Lord of the whole earth.

The exact same threshing and judgment is proclaimed in Daniel 2:34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth - WE ARE THE COMING KINGDOM

Notice that in verse 13 of Micah, God says of the Daughter of Zion, which is none other than the bride of Christ - "and I will make thy hoofs brass: and thou shalt beat in pieces many people"

Now see how He refers to His purified on fire bride in Malachi 4 as stall fed calves - and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts.

Does not calves have hooves?

Judgment comes upon the nations through the Kingdom people of His PRESENCE, of His POWER and of His GLORY.

Stop seeking to be raptured people of God, and seek to walk in agreement with His ways.

Yes persecution is coming and as we clearly can see the anti-Christ communist beast powers and beast system arising, but as is written in Daniel 11:32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

The day of Lord, by which He comes to destroy the son of perdition, only comes after the tribulation judgments and shakings through which a mighty harvest shall first be reaped and the Spirit of God commands us to be patient

2 Thessalonians 2

1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him, 2 That you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, that the day of the Lord is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come the falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. 5 Do you not remember, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6 And now you know what restrains that he might be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity does already work: only he who now restrains will do so, until he be taken out of the way. 8 And then shall that Wicked One be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the breath of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming.

God's restraining hand is the power that allows everything about His plans for creation to be unveiled in it's proper time for it is written in Colossians 1:16-17 For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him: And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.

The day of His wrath comes after the time of tribulation, after we see the sign in the sun, the moon and the stars.

Matthew 24: 29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give its light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Confirmed in Isaiah 13 and please notice that this prophecy is in perfect agreement with this entire Holy Spirit revelation.

Isaiah 13

1 The burden concerning Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see.

2 Lift up a banner upon the high mountain, raise the voice unto them, wave the hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles.

3 I have commanded My sanctified ones, I have also called My mighty ones for My anger, even them that rejoice in My exaltation.

4 The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like that of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the LORD of hosts musters the army of the battle.

5 They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the LORD, and the weapons of His indignation, to destroy the whole land.
