This HBO TV series is major conditioning to prepare unsaved people for the global disappearance of tens of millions of people in nearly instantaneous timing -- the Rapture!
NEWS BRIEF: "The Leftovers", Dish's Hopper Magazine, June, 2014
"Imagine It: You're in the midst of an ordinary day -- at your job, at the mall, in your home, your car, a plane -- when 2 percent of the world's population vanishes in an instant. No natural disaster. No terrorist attacks. No carnage. Just random empty spaces where people used to be -- celebrities, political and religious leaders, your neighbor, your spouse, your child. And no one can explain it."
Two percent of 7.045 billion people is slightly over 140 million people. That is a lot of people to just suddenly and mysteriously disappear in a split second.
Essentially, this TV series plot depicts the Rapture of the Church! The Rapture, at its basic level, is the snatching away of tens of millions of believers in the "twinkling of an eye"! And that is the plot of this TV series, except that the people snatched are not limited to believers. Even the author of the book on which this series is based acknowledges that he views this plot as a basic fulfillment of the Rapture prophecies in the Bible. Listen to him explain.
"One of the things that appealed to me about this rapture scenario wasn't so much to explore a Biblical prophecy coming true, but to explore what the world feels like ... It looks superficially like the rapture, but it doesn't make any theological sense ... says Perotta."
An Episcopalian pastor in town adamantly states that this disappearance cannot be the Biblical Rapture, because many who were snatched were not saved and were not good people! This pastor believes that this snatching away was a "test" for the real Rapture.
I discovered the bottom line to this new series in the 30-Minute Dish TV report. Basically, the most important theme sounded by "The Leftovers" is that humans have mysteriously disappeared in the past, and are likely to disappear again. Actors and Actresses presented the following events as proof of their claim.
* "Bermuda Triangle -- Covers over 500,000 square miles of ocean. The Triangle is responsible for a high number of mysterious disappearances.
* In 1585, English settlers set camp at Roanoke. Their leader, John White, had to return to England to arrange for supplies to be sent. After being gone for three years, he returned, only to discover that all settlers were gone and their village was nearly destroyed.
* 1878 - Quincy, Illinois -- Charles Ashmore disappeared while getting water in the wintertime. Loved ones searched for him, but could only find his set of footprints in the snow. However, the footprints abruptly ended, indicating that he had simply disappeared while walking through the snow.
1872 -- An unmanned merchant ship, the Mary Celeste, was found at sea, her crew gone, the captain and his entire family gone. The cargo and the ship were intact.
Another major theme was that "there is no belief system that can answer all questions". Therefore, people all over the globe are abandoning their previously held religious doctrines. People all over the world are being seized with melancholy despair.
At this point, I wish to remind you that the leaders of the Illuminati know that the Rapture is coming!
At this point, I wish to remind you that the leaders of the Illuminati know that the Rapture is coming!
Please take a moment to review this playing card from the Illuminati Card Game, which was introduced to the retail gaming market in 1995. This card most definitely depicts the Biblical Rapture as the writing underneath proves.
The card clearly says, "When the Rapture comes ... Tape runs out."
We have written several Headline News articles reporting the reality that leaders of the New World Order Plan know for certain that God is going to snatch His people. Please take a few moments to read these articles.
NEWS2077 -- "AS RAPTURE OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH DRAWS NEAR -- THE ILLUMINATI AWAITS IT BREATHLESSLY!" (Posted in 2005)
The bottom line understanding is that the Illuminati knows that the Rapture is really going to happen. Their Guiding Spirits have told them, in no uncertain terms, that these natural enemies of the coming Christ (Antichrist) are going to be supernaturally transported out of this Earthly dimension.
Think of it! Jesus is going to snatch away tens of millions of people whose attitudes and religious values are such that they can never accept the claims of the Masonic Christ. As this Illuminati Card Game demonstrates, occultists trained in the Illuminati Plan know the Rapture of the Church is near, and are awaiting it breathlessly! They cannot wait until multitudes upon multitudes of natural enemies of the New World Order and its Jesus are taken away.
This reality means that the Illuminati is not going to have to spend enormous amounts of money, time, and material arresting, imprisoning, murdering hundreds of millions of people. The sheer magnitude of murdering 18 million people nearly brought Adolf Hitler's genocide machine to a halt. The Illuminati learned through Hitler's experience that murdering and disposing of 6 million Jews and 12 million other "devalued people" is a gigantic undertaking. And, they are planning to murder up to one billion!
They must be so glad that they will be getting supernatural assistance in this monumental task about the time when the Biblical Antichrist arises.
NEWS2370b -- "Global Mind Control And The Rapture of the Church" - Part 2 of 3 - Posted in 2009)
"... since 1989, the demonic Guiding Spirits have been telling New Age leaders to prepare their adherents for the simultaneous snatching away of all people in the world whose religious belief systems can never, ever be compatible with the New Age Christ!"
The only obstacle the Global Elite face is how to logically explain the snatching away of believers. This task forms the core of this HBO series. I watched a 30-minute "back scenes report" offered by Dish Network on this series. The bottom line seemed to be that "this kind of disappearance" has happened in mankind's history before -- Bermuda Triangle, for example. Therefore, people should not be too surprised that it will happen again in the future. The only difference is the sheer magnitude of the numbers of people who will disappear.
Since the enemy of our souls is preparing the scenario as to how his people are going to accept a false scenario for the Rapture of believers, what should our response be? What should our response be to the imminent snatching away of all Born Again Christians?
"Wherefore comfort yourselves together with these words": – The Apostle Paul, 1 Thessalonians 5:11
We must also spiritually examine ourselves, to see if we have any unconfessed sin in our lives. Listen to the Apostle Peter describe living pure lives now that we know the end is very close.
"Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless." (2 Peter 3:14)
Slightly Different Scenario
What IF? And this is a big "what if"!
What if this scenario in "The Leftovers" is not only conditioning for the Rapture of the Church, but is an exact scenario of the "fake rapture" that the Illuminati is capable of producing? Is this possible? Is this probable? Maybe our focus should be on the Episcopalian pastor who was upset for two very important reasons:
1) That he was not raptured since he was a genuine believer;
2) That his research on many of those raptured revealed that they were not only believers in Jesus Christ, but they were rascals and some were dishonorable.
What if "The Leftovers" depicts what the Illuminati is planning to do? They would love the opportunity to really shake the faith of many millions of Christians and damage the witness of many genuine Christians who were "left behind". We have noted in the past how the Illuminati loves to "telegraph its punches" prior to an event actually occurring. (Read full details in NEWS2104, entitled, "Startling Revelation: Now We Know Why The Illuminati Telegraphs Its Punches".
Holographic Images From The Sky
The Illuminati now claims to have the technical capability to stage the Rapture. They might just carry it out in order to throw extreme panic, confusion, and despair into the hearts of genuine Christians just before their beloved Masonic Christ arises. God just may allow it as a final test of His saints. Would you be Biblically knowledgeable enough to spot the deception and stand firmly in your faith?
New World Order planners can possibly "take over the world by projecting holographic images into the sky while beaming thoughts directly into our heads, telling us to accept the new 'god' of their design." ["HAARP: The Ultimate Weapon Of The Conspiracy", by Jerry E. Smith, p. 15; New Age adherent]
"I have learned that the [New Age] Movement has devoted a great deal of research and attention to the use of holographic images. These are three-dimensional images created in space by use of laser beams. David Spangler said in a meeting in Southfield, Michigan, February 1, 1982, that laser beam projectors had been installed for use on top of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Episcopal, in New York City."I talked to lighting experts to see what laser beam projectors are capable of and I was told they can be beamed onto telecommunications satellites. The New Agers have several of these at their disposal. When the lasers bounce from the satellite back to earth, the light rays can be bent in such a manner as to appear that flames are coming from the sky. These satellites can also be used to project a three-dimensional holographic image viewable by up to one-third of the earth's population. There is even technology to make the image speak in the language of the areas to which it is beamed." ["Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow", pg. 24, published in 1983]
Scriptural Prophecy: "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world..." (Rev 12:9)
We believe the Illuminati may be planning history's greatest hoax: a fake Christian Rapture.
Elite world leaders know that the desire for a Rapture out of this sin-cursed world is the most important desire in many Christian hearts. Therefore, knowing this, and possessing the technological ability to simulate such a rapture, the Illuminati just may pull it off -- just to try to deceive and destroy the faith of limitless numbers of Christians. As this Illuminati Card Game card -- shown above -- indicate, the Illuminati fully understands the Christian doctrine of the Rapture and they intend to stage their own Messiah.
The question of this late hour is simple: does this card also indicate that the Illuminati intends to fake a Rapture prior to their appearance of their Masonic Christ (Antichrist)?
Let us now examine that possibility.
When I read these two quotes from Jerry Smith and Constance Cumbey, above, my blood ran cold; I was immediately reminded of Jesus' prophetic words in Matthew 24:24, that the deception at the End of the Age would be so very, very good that it would involve "... great signs and wonders ; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."
When most people read this passage, their focus is on the extreme deception foretold, not on the fact that our Lord is warning us that this deception will take the form of "great signs and wonders ". Not only has New Age author, Jerry Smith, warned us in the quote, above, that HAARP technology has given New World Order planners the technological capability to carry out such a global grand scheme, but another New Age leader, Peter Lemesurier, has similarly warned us.
"Belief sometimes needs a physical crutch. Various commentators have suggested that, even during the Exodus itself, the semi-legendary Cloud of the Presence may, like the equally-legendary pillar of fire and smoke which accompanied the long march, have been some kind of technological phenomenon. Certainly, therefore, the use of such special effects should not be ruled out on this occasion [appearance of Antichrist]." [Lemesurier, "The Armageddon Script" , p. 236]
Note the use of the words, "special effects" in the quote above; you can read "great [lying] signs and wonders". The Illuminati are putting us on notice that they are going to target the entire world with their "special effects". Christians should understand that we are the ones with the largest bulls eye painted on our backs. We are the #1 enemy of the Illuminati and are targeted for special destruction, and elimination.
I find it highly significant that, as political, religious, and economic signs increasingly point toward the End of the Age prophecies of the globalist Kingdom of Antichrist, Hollywood has gained ever increasing capabilities to produce movies that are so very, very realistic. New Age writings are plain in their belief that the "signs and wonders" attending the appearance of their Christ will be very technological in nature, much like a huge Hollywood script . Speaking of scripts, listen to the last words of Peter Lemesurier, as he finishes his concluding section as to how the Christ [Antichrist] will be able to deceive the peoples of the world into worshipping him as God:
"Their script is now written, subject only to last-minute editing and stage-directions. The stage itself, albeit as yet in darkness, is almost ready. Down in the pit, the subterranean orchestra is already tuning up. The last-minute, walk-on parts are even now being filled. Most of the main actors ... have already taken up their roles. Soon it will be time for them to come on stage, ready for the curtain to rise. The time for action will have come." [Lemesurier, "The Armageddon Script" , p. 252]
New Age writings have always claimed that their Christ will be acting on a world-wide stage, according to a prewritten script, just as Lemesurier writes, above. This deliberate and careful scripting has been carried out by the most brilliant men imaginable, writing with demonic supernatural assistance. No major event by a major actor or actress [Political and Key Business Leader] is spontaneous; all such major events are carefully scripted. For example, when President Bush or Clinton or Obama speaks, he is simply following a carefully planned script.
Some New age authors have even been so explicit as to make their plans public. Christian author, Constance Cumbey quotes New Age author, David Spangler as he made it quite clear how these "lying signs and wonders" accompanying the appearance of the New Age Christ are technologically feasible. Even though we have already revealed this quote, at the top of this article, let us quote it again, because it is so revealing and so critically important.
"I have learned that the [New Age] Movement has devoted a great deal of research and attention to the use of holographic images. These are three-dimensional images created in space by use of laser beams. David Spangler said in a meeting in Southfield, Michigan, February 1, 1982, that laser beam projectors had been installed for use on top of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Episcopal, in New York City.
"I talked to lighting experts to see what laser beam projectors are capable of and I was told they can be beamed onto telecommunications satellites. The New Agers have several of these at their disposal. When the lasers bounce from the satellite back to earth, the light rays can be bent in such a manner as to appear that flames are coming from the sky. These satellites can also be used to project a three-dimensional holographic image viewable by up to one-third of the earth's population. There is even technology to make the image speak in the language of the areas to which it is beamed." ["Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow" , pg. 24, published in 1983]
Cumbey reminisced how she thought of a particular Scripture upon learning of this technology. She remembered this Scripture:
"And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast ... And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed." [Revelation 13:13-15, Emphasis added]
WHO IS THE AUTHORITY GRANTING THIS POWER [KNOWLEDGE AND ABILITY]?
These words, "had power" intrigue me greatly, especially since they are used in direct conjunction with the "lying signs and wonders " by which Antichrist will deceive the vast majority of all the peoples in the world. If the forces of Antichrist are going to have the "power" [ability, knowledge] to carry out these visual deceptions, by whose authority did they receive this power? From whom did this special "power" come?
We get the answer in several verses of Revelation.
"And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword." [Rev 6:4] We know from Rev 6:1 that this particular power came directly from Jesus Christ as he opened the First Seal.
"And when he had opened the fourth seal ... And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth." [Rev 6:7-8] Once again, we see that the power given the forces of Antichrist flows directly from Jesus Christ.
"And there was given unto him [Antichrist] a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months." [Rev 13:5] Here, we see that Satan gave the power to Antichrist to speak highly blasphemous statements against Jesus Christ and to enable him to rule for the last 42 months of the Tribulation Period. But, Satan received the power from Jesus Christ.
"And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations." [Rev 13:7] Jesus Christ gives the forces of Antichrist the "power" to overcome His saints in the most unbelievable persecution in all history.
"And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire." [Rev 16:8] Here we see Jesus Christ empowering this angel with Divine ability to scorch men with fire, the fire of the Sun.
In each of these five instances, the word 'power' in the original Greek meant "ability", "competency", "mastery over", and "superhuman". The word is Strong's G1849, 'exousia', and is power granted by a superhuman outside force. In other words, Jesus Christ is prophesied to allow Satan to give the forces of Antichrist special "ability, competency, and mastery over" the knowledge as to how to carry out these specific acts of Divine Judgment. We have long maintained this is the only reason our scientists now have the ability, the knowledge, to control weather and the storms thereof.
We have also regularly stated in the course of this ministry that Satan could not carry out all of God's prophecies concerning the End of the Age with the technology existing in 1900; he needed modern technology, just as this card from the Illuminati Card Game illustrates.
In our opinion, God has allowed Satan to communicate to his members of Satanic secret societies immense knowledge that has led to our 20th Century explosion of scientific know-how. Throughout history, many of the greatest minds have gravitated to the secret societies because they longed to increase their knowledge, and to possess knowledge not given to the common masses of society.
Consider some of the men who were members of secret societies that have had such great influence on our daily lives:
1. Pythagoras -- originator of much of our knowledge of Geometry. He left his Greek home to move to Egypt to join the secret society devoted to the study mathematics and geometry. Today, Pythagoras is thought of so highly by occultists of all stripes that we might rightly call this admiration 'worship'. Pythagoras was an adept in the Egyptian and Babylonian Satanic Mysteries, from which he learned the three occult sciences of music, mathematics [including Geometry], and astronomy [New Age author, Elizabeth van Buren, The Secrets of the Illuminati, p. 33, also Nesta Webster, "Secret Societies and Subversive Movements", 1924, p. 6]
2. Benjamin Franklin, inventor extraordinare -- Member of the Rosicrucian secret society, and hobnobbed with Freemasons.
3. Thomas Edison, inventor of the light bulb -- Member of the House of Theosophy
4. Henry Ford, inventor of the mass production method of assembling vehicles -- Member of the House of Theosophy
5. Inventor of the Xerox copy machine -- Member of the House of Theosophy
6. Marcel Vogel, one of the first inventors of the computer, has been giving speeches to New Age audiences for almost two decades now, claiming he received the initial knowledge as to how to use the characteristics of Magnetism to build a computer from a Guiding Spirit during a meditation dream! [Constance Cumbey, Editorial: Underemphasis Of Love Is As Bad Or Worse As An Overemphasis Of Love", New Age Monitor newsletter, June/July, 1989, p. 1]
7. Apple, Inc., priced their first computer at $666 to demonstrate the occult basis of computer technology.
8. Master D.K., speaking through his channeler , Alice A. Bailey, claims that the atomic secrets were revealed to human scientists by the Masters of the Logos ["Externalisation of the Hierarchy", Lucis Publishing, New York, 1957, p. 190-1, 548].
Today, this explosion of information has reached critical mass, doubling every 10 months, with many of the discoveries leading to Antichrist activities, such as genetic engineering of the human body, creating "new" human beings, and dealing in human body parts deliberately grown for transplant.
This information brings us back to the subject of "power being given" to create the "lying signs and wonders" of the Antichrist. Most people have no difficulty understanding that these "lying signs and wonders" will undoubtedly be used to produce the staged appearance of Antichrist.
TIME FOR A FAKE RAPTURE?
However, these same "lying signs and wonders" could possibly be used against the Christian Church at the most dynamic time in the history of the Times of the Gentiles, i.e., before and during the appearance of Antichrist. What might be the purpose of the Illuminati to stage just such a fake rapture? [This is presupposing the technology does, indeed, exist, as the Illuminati claims].
1. To thoroughly throw panic, confusion, and despair into the ranks of their most mortal enemy, Fundamental Born-Again Christians. Many genuinely saved Christians will be tremendously puzzled when the Rapture for which they have been expectantly and patiently awaiting has occurred, and they were NOT taken. One of my friends reported he once had a dream that Jesus returned for His Church, and he was not taken; he was thoroughly awakened from his sleep over this nightmare, and was badly shaking! At least for a short time, Christians will be thoroughly shaken by the fact that they were still firmly planted on earth, after a rapture occurred which they thought was genuine. Their faith will be tested like never before.
2. To sow extreme discord into the ranks of genuine, Born Again believers. When genuinely saved Christians discover that their pastor is still on earth also, many will become very angry. After all, they had followed his teaching, his leading, and his counsel, with the apparent net result being that Jesus Christ rejected both their pastor and them! On the Sunday morning following the Rapture, a lot of genuinely saved pastors will face a very hostile following. I believe the initial response will be one of a tremendous fissure opening up among the true brethren.
3. To validate the ministries and Apostate teachings, of Liberal ministers and their churches. If this fake Rapture includes the "disappearance" of many Liberal pastors and teachers -- including the Pope -- who have rejected the Deity of Jesus Christ, His uniqueness, and many other cardinal doctrines, then the vast majority of people not religious might think that their teachings were correct, after all. This lie will then encourage the rest of the population of the Western world to embrace their Ecumenical doctrine. Since the end result aimed for by these Apostate religious leaders is the establishment of a global religion that embraces ALL religions, this faked Rapture would encourage the unsaved to go in this direction at precisely the time when Antichrist will be preparing to make his staged appearance. Of course, these Apostate religious leaders would not have really disappeared but will have just gone into hiding until no one cares anymore about the faked rapture. As you consider this possibility, remember that the vast majority of the unsaved do not critically think anymore; they will be easily led by the nose by the Liberal Media, and will likely believe any lie, no matter how transparent to the thinking individual.
If Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins who wrote those terribly deceptive "Left Behind" series are also reported to have been Raptured, then their spiritually fatal deception that a Christian can take the Mark of the Beast and still go to Heaven, will have been validated in the minds of untold hundreds of millions of people.
4. To try to cause as many Christians as possible to lose their faith; this is likely to occur because many Christians have been led to accept false teaching concerning some Bible prophecies, or because they are weak on understanding key doctrine. The Illuminati is also weak on Biblical doctrine, and so do not realize that no one genuinely saved can ever lose their salvation. Their goal would be to cause as many as possible to lose what faith they had, even to the point of many committing suicide. Truly, a fake rapture would shake people's faith like no other event in world history. It would require every genuinely Born Again believer to take a firm stand upon the Bible doctrine that states unequivocally that all those "who trust in the Lord Jesus Christ shall be saved". [Acts 16:31; John 3:16-18 in Jesus' own Words; Romans 10:9]
Satan loves to attack Christian's faith; it is his favorite tactic, and the one most commonly used against true Christians.
I have heard numerous sermons on this passage, emphasizing that part of the application is to the trials and tribulations of a person's life, but that a part of the application is to the trials and tribulations of the End of the Age. This latter view is that the Divine Judgments during the 7-year Tribulation Period will constitute the greatest storm possible on a person, and that only those whose foundation is truly Jesus Christ will "endure to the end".
Certainly, genuinely Born Again believers are going to be shaken by the thought that they had missed the Rapture of the Church, that Jesus Christ did not consider them "worthy to escape the trials coming upon the whole world to try the whole world" [Luke 21:36]. These Christians will have to return to the basic facts of their salvation, undergirded by the promises of salvation in the Word of God. Such people will survive this heart-wrenching experience, but those whose faith is not genuine, and who do not know their Biblical doctrine, may lose their faith at this point. They will be like the man in the last sentence of this passage, above, whose Christian faith is "without a foundation", resulting in their eternal ruin.
I find it highly instructive to realize that, when Job was under the false attack from his "friends", he fell back to his fail-safe defensive position of his faith. Time and time again, Job fell back to his faith, from which he refused to be shaken [Job 1:20-21; 9:20-22; 10:7-8; 13:15; 19:25] Likewise, if a fake rapture occurs, truly Born-Again believers will be forced to retreat back into their impenetrable bunker of faith, just as did Job; but those people who do not possess genuine faith will be shaken so severely in their mind and heart they will lose whatever faith in Jesus Christ they did posses.
Certainly, a fake Rapture would cause the greatest spiritual weeding out of all time, separating the genuine Christian from the genuinely counterfeit. The biggest question concerning this possible severe shaking of a Christian's belief by a fake rapture is whether God would allow such a severe shaking. Is there ever any indication that God deliberately allows Satan to REALLY shake a person's faith, to test that faith, and to prove it genuine? Of course, there is just such an example and his name is Job.
[Job 1:6-12, 21; 2:1-7; 3:1; 10:1-8; 13:15; 17:1; 23:10; after Job's faith remained unshaken, in spite of the erroneous "counsel" of his "friends", God restores all to Job, plus much more -- 42:12-17; God allowed Satan to bring these three worthless friends to counsel Job, causing even more grief with their false counsel.]
In James 1:2-12, we see that we are promised that God will allow our faith to be shaken; verse 12 tells us that when these trials and temptations are finished, and we have stayed the course, we shall be given the Crown of Life, which God has promised.
If God allows Satan to severely shake the faith of tens of millions of Christians with a fake rapture just before the appearance of Antichrist, He will be acting in full accord with His Nature, His promises, and His Scripture.
5. To give the Illuminati the excuse to seize some of their Christian enemy, causing many Christians to think a "partial rapture" had occurred. The Illuminati has many Christian leaders on their Hit List, and would love to have an opportunity to seize and possibly martyr them, so their testimony as to the truth of what is occurring during the appearance of Antichrist would be silenced. Just prior to the fake rapture, agents could secretly seize many such Christian leaders, causing the illusion they had been raptured, thus spawning a false perception that a "partial rapture" had occurred. This tactic would further sow confusion, panic, and discord among the brethren, while eliminating the most effective witness against the appearance of Antichrist.
As you consider the Illuminati, consider who they are; they are the most prominent, and powerful, Black Magick Satanists in world history. They are supported, possessed, and guided by the most evil spirits of all time. Therefore, please allow the Apostle Paul to inform us as to the true nature of the Illuminati.
"Put on God's whole armor ... that you may be able successfully to stand up against all the strategies and the deceits of the devil. For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents] but against the despotism, against the powers, against the master spirits who are the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly [supernatural] sphere. Therefore put on God's complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day ... and having done all the crisis demands, to stand firmly in the your place. Stand therefore ..." [Ephesians 6:11-14a, Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary; Emphasis added]
We Christians are up against a most formidable spiritual array of wickedness, straight out of the Pit of Hell. Furthermore, notice that Paul lists only one offensive weapon at our disposal -- the sword -- which is the Word of God. If we are forced by this fake rapture to retreat back to our bastion of faith, our only offensive weapon will be to quote "Thus saith the Lord" to ourselves and to Satan. But, if a person is woefully weak on Bible Scripture and therefore, doctrine, they might not have the offensive weapons with which to preserve their faith. Doctrine can only be learned from studying Scripture; doctrine IS THE anchor of the soul. Read it; learn it; apply it!
TIME FOR THE NEXT BLOW?
How would such a fake rapture set up the opportunity to deliver another huge Illuminist blow against genuine believers?
As we reported in NEWS1332 ["Confirmation of Major Discrepancies In Standard Prophecy Teachings"] American Christians have been set up to believe that the Church will be Raptured before the appearance of Antichrist, so that we will never see this demonically-possessed leader. During a Bible Prophecy conference held at Tremont Temple in downtown Boston, in October, 1999, I had the opportunity to speak with a leading Evangelical prophetic speaker about several matters in which I had special interest.
During a break on Saturday, the second day of the conference, I was able to approach this speaker. We encourage you to read this report in detail, for we do not have the time to cover it here; but, he admitted that the standard prophecy teaching that the Church will be Raptured before Antichrist will appear -- based upon 2 Thessalonians 2 -- is based solely on his [and other's] private interpretation. When I protested strongly to him that 2 Thessalonians 2 does not actually say that believers will never see Antichrist, he calmly agreed, but then said, "That is my interpretation", in bold contradiction of 2 Peter 1:20. This is also the interpretation of standard prophecy teaching today, and has resulted in millions of Christians falsely believing they will never see Antichrist because they will be taken in the Rapture beforehand.
Therefore, such Christians will possibly suffer two double whammies -- first, they will be shaken to discover they have not been taken in a false Rapture which they believe to have been real; secondly, they will be immediately treated to the spectacle of Antichrist arising on the world scene, in full view of TV cameras, displaying unprecedented occult power, lying signs and wonders, and deceiving multitudes, an event they have been conditioned to believe will never happen.
Such Christians will be overwhelmed with doubt, because they thoroughly believed the standard prophecy line that was never based upon Scripture in the first place, but only on the "private interpretation" of a phalanx of Bible prophecy teachers.
THE CURSE OF THE UNREALISTIC EXPECTATION
Quite commonly, we see the terrible impact that misguided expectations can have on a person's life. Newlyweds commonly face this problem, as husband and wife come to grips with a reality that does not match their previous expectations. Wall Street is particularly susceptible to the blows of unrealistic expectations; on numerous occasions, we have seen stock go down dramatically for a company that had just announced record profits. Why does this occur? It occurs because investors had unrealistic expectations; they had expected even more profits than were announced.
Christians thus indoctrinated to the Rapture occurring before Antichrist arises will have been delivered a double whammy blow. Most of these Christians also do not know when the 7-year Tribulation Period actually begins. Most erroneously believe it begins when Antichrist arises, even though Daniel 9:27 makes it quite clear that the 7-year period begins the moment Antichrist "confirms the Covenant" with the "many" -- Israel's leaders. Therefore, a period of time will occur from the moment Antichrist arises to the moment he convinces the Jewish Orthodox leadership he is their Messiah, thus prompting Jewish religious leaders to announce to their followers that this man is their Messiah. Antichrist can confirm the Covenant only after being officially accepted by Jewish religious leadership.
Thus, when the appearance of Antichrist occurs shortly after the fake rapture, the same Christians who have been misled about the timing of the true Rapture will also be further confused by the fact that they are now actually witnessing the appearance of Antichrist. Rather than concluding that their teaching on this matter was in error, I am afraid many will assume that the whole of Bible doctrine is wrong, and will abandon their faith, thus causing their spiritual house to fall -- and "great will be the fall" of it.
I believe it quite possible that such a fake rapture might occur. It would cause the truly Born Again Believer to thoroughly examine his/her belief, their faith, and to hold on to their faith until the True Rapture occurs -- which is quite possibly after the fake rapture, and after staged appearance of Antichrist, but before he "confirms the Covenant" with Jewish leaders.
Would you be spiritually ready for a fake rapture? Would your faith be mature enough? Is your soul anchored to the Rock of Jesus Christ? Can you can say with the Apostle Paul, "I know in Whom I have Believed?" Would your understanding of Bible prophecy be mature enough to realize you have been misled? Or would you throw your faith and the entire Bible, into the trash heap, and abandon Jesus Christ?
I do not know enough about the specific technology to know exactly how such a fake rapture would be carried out; however, I do know that such an event is technologically possible. I believe it would take only a couple of elements to deceive the unsaved world and the undiscerning Christian.
1. If all the major networks suddenly simultaneously broke through to announce that tens of millions of people are suddenly missing.2. If these networks showed a film prepared beforehand, where people will be shown to be here on earth one second and mysteriously gone the next.3. If "experts" were suddenly interviewed saying that this may be the foretold Rapture of the Church4. Maybe, just maybe, 3-dimensional holographic images might project people on sparsely occupied streets, seemingly walking down the street, and then having them disappear right in front of real people's eyes. This would produce the eye-witness accounts so needed to give this event weighty credibility. I know the technical problem exists of having the 3-dimensional holographic images superimposing themselves upon real people, a problem that would blow the cover of the operation; however, I have learned not to underestimate the technological capabilities of Hollywood. Certainly, the news accounts simply would not air the testimony of someone who claimed he or she saw the holographic images on top of real people.
The vast majority of mankind would believe it; too many Christians would also be convinced they had missed the real Rapture of the Church. In other words, the plight of the Episcopalian pastor in the HBO series, "The Leftovers" would be felt by tens of millions of genuine Christians the world over, as they feel the pain of not being taken. Most of these genuine Christians will begin to doubt their salvation. How many of them will realize that the facts of this "fake rapture" do not fit the Biblical account? How many of these Christians will realize that God is literally carrying out His prophecy:
"Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain." (Hebrews 12:26-27; Emphasis added)
Additionally, I know that the Illuminati is fully aware that each Christian badly wants to be raptured out of this world before Antichrist arises and before the terrible prophesied events begin to occur; therefore, the Illuminati would be mightily tempted to use such anxious feelings against their mortal enemy, the Fundamental Christian. The motive is certainly present, and the capability [opportunity] is present now, too. Thus, in police investigative thinking, two out of three basic considerations of whether a suspect could have committed a crime are present.
In my opinion, this makes a fake rapture possible, perhaps even probable. I am not predicting one, but it is possible. The question of the hour is whether this HBO series, "The Leftovers" paints an accurate picture of a world turned upside down by the simultaneous disappearance of 140 million people, vanishing into thin air in the "twinkling of an eye".
Are you spiritually ready if such an event were to truly occur? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
