"Lies and Deception II"
Here it is if you want to recall what was said then:
There has always been speculation regarding how the post-Rapture world will explain the Rapture of the Church. The antichrist will also need to offer some kind of explanation which doesn't include the truth. The truth would reveal the power of God and it would reveal that the God of the Holy Bible is very much alive and well. The post-Rapture world simply cannot deal in truth when it comes to the Holy Bible. Therefore, some alternative explanation must be offered up for the astonishing event which just occurred - an event in which millions of Christians disappeared from earth. That won't be an easy task.
For years prophecy watchers have speculated on how the Rapture will be explained to the masses who are now left on the earth - particularly those who had an awareness of the possibility of the Rapture of the Church - and most likely the same folks who ridiculed the notion of the Rapture. The truth simply won't do. An array of possible explanations may arise - but one of the perennial favorite possibilities - one that is often discussed in "New Age" circles, has been the notion that UFOs would appear and take away all of the "bad" people (aka "Christians"), leaving in it's wake a perfect world with the enlightened people (don't laugh, I have read about this scenario many many times in such circles).
Well, guess what?
We now have a movie coming out in which that exact scenario is presented to a gullible public:
The link above is to the "official" site for the movie, ready for release in November. This movie will depict a scenario in which millions of people on earth are suddenly lifted up and "taken" up by these UFOs (see the movie trailer which is linked on this site). The parallels to the Rapture of the Church are obvious.
For years, many of us have speculated on the whole UFO phenomenon and what it's purpose could be. I have always felt that the UFOs actually came from a demonic force, an illusion put in place specifically intended to serve as an explanation of the future Rapture of the Church.
To bolster that view, it has always been of interest that the whole UFO phenomenon really began with the infamous "Roswell crash", which interestingly occurred just a few months prior to the array of prophetic events of 1948.
How convenient - now the world can be conditioned, in advance, to have a nice, tidy explanation for the Rapture. And they'll probably buy it - after all, lies and deception will be the order of the day.
More recently we have seen the news that China, on two occasions, has had to close their airports due to UFOs allegedly hovering over the airport:
"UFO closes Chinese Airport"
Three flights to Baotou from Shanghai and Beijing were reportedly forced to circle the airport until the UFO disappeared.
Two other flights were diverted away from Baotou and to the nearby cities of Ordos and Taiyuan. The airport was shut for around an hour "to guarantee safety" according to a spokesman.
Witnesses reported a bright light shining in the sky on September 11 around two-and-a-half miles away from Baotou airport, before suddenly vanishing.
The incident was the eighth reported UFO sighting in China since the end of June.
Additionally, there has been a lot of discussion and articles regarding UFO sightings around U.S. nuclear facilities:
"Former Air Force Officers: UFOs Tampered With Nuclear Missiles"
Former U.S. Air Force officers and a former enlisted man are about to break many years of silence about an alarming series of UFO encounters at nuclear weapons sites -- incidents officially kept secret for decades.
When the group appears at a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on Monday, it will offer testimony about events so chilling, it will seem like a day at a science fiction movie festival.
So, why, after so many years of keeping quiet, are former military personnel coming forward to talk about their experiences, as Salas and his Air Force colleagues are doing on Monday? He says the people who will talk in Washington are "just the tip of the iceberg."
We are now rapidly approaching October 12, which is the opening day of the new movie "Skyline", which was discussed above.
"Skyline: Movie Trailers"
There is a second video clip as seen in this link, which is now in circulation and preceding the movie's opening.
Is the world being conditioned for the purpose of accepting an explanation for the Rapture of the Church?
I believe this is quite possible. The antichrist and his regime will have to explain the Rapture - in such a way that does NOT include the truth. The truth of God's plan for the Church and by definition, the truths in the Bible, won't exactly help the antichrist and his agenda, therefore an alternate explanation must come forth.
Don't forget, lies and deception, plus, what appears to the inhabitants of the earth (during the Tribulation) as miracles will be the order of the day:
"And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men. Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth"
It is also interesting, if one reads about so-called "alien abductions" it is clear that whatever is happening to these individuals isn't some mild, benign scenario. These accounts sound very demonic and whatever "beings" (if indeed these experiences are "real") are performing these abductions are extremely malevolent (demons?).
I believe it is quite possible that the world is indeed being conditioned - by Satan and his minions - to accept an alternate, false explanation for the Rapture of the Church, and in the process offer a convenient way to deny the God of the Holy Bible and the biblical story of creation.
I have read that the nanosecond the Church has been Raptured, the enemy will start replicating by taking up non believers to confuse the issue!
That may be so? But it won't be so easy to replicate the dead in
Christ bursting out of their graves world wide leaving behind a pile of debris, smashed coffins with no human remains left but a few rags.:)
Thats an interesting thought and many folks are divided on how the "dead will rise" - I personally (based on sheer speculation) believe that we will all instantly be "materialized" in our glorified bodies "in the air" - rather than a slow ascent - one which will be observed. To those left on earth, I believe we'll all disappear (including the "dead") rather than being seen "rising up". These are just my thoughts - and I could certainly be wrong - but I see us all instantly at the gates of heaven. in the presence of Jesus. How glorious!
I agree that the rapture of the dead and alive in Christ will not be observable to the human eye.
Jesus is bringing the spirits of the dead with Him from heaven. Now just as Jesus body lay in the tomb, likewise the dead saint’s remains will be in their graves (or in the dust). Their spirits will (imo) ‘meet’ with the remains IN the tomb/grave of earth, and in the glorified bodies ascent, the earth will be thrown upward, just as the stone was seen to be rolled away from the tomb entrance.
Just as Jesus’ linen cloths were seen in the position of His Body, in the same way all burial clothes will lay empty at the bottom of the graves. Without the evidence of the stone and the cloths, there was no reason to know there was/will be a resurrection. (In like manner?)
In my minds eye, I see this undeniable evidence of the resurrection of dead saints as so many huge ‘mole hills’ scattered around the earth. This is why I think this part of the Rapture will be near impossible to hide or fake.
I have also wondered if the power of the resurrection will cause ‘water spouts’ to spiral upward from those buried at sea. While those that were cremated and but dust, will likewise cause mini dust tornados (dust ‘devils’) – that effect may well be observed by some (like seeing a shooting star?)
There is an interesting book in circulation - one that speculates that there will be a huge earthquake at the time of the rapture - I believe its called "Earthquake Resurrection" (I could be wrong - but I THINK thats the book)--- Its very interesting. I don't agree with everything in it, but I did find it an interesting read.
He based it on "resurrections" that have occurred in the past, biblically, such as the time of Jesus' resurrection, and other previous examples in which there were "earthquakes" at the same time, etc. Anyway, it is an interesting read, if you are so inclined.
Thank you Scott - I shall goagoogling!
SYNOPSIS: EARTHQUAKE RESURRECTION
The resurrection to immortality of:
• Jesus Christ
• The "many saints" of Matthew chapter 27
• The two witnesses of Revelation chapter 11
What do these resurrections have in common? And what impact could it have in the future?
Have you ever questioned the traditional explanation of how the "rapture", or catching up of believers will take place? Among those who believe this teaching, it has long been believed that newscasts will suddenly flash a story that millions of people will be reported as missing all around the world. Planes will fall from the sky, accidents will occur all over the globe, and the world will be in a state of bewilderment over where everyone disappeared to.
How will it be explained? Did the "rapture" just take place? Were all the people abducted by aliens? Many theories about just how it will be explained have been advanced. But none of them made sense to me, and there was no explanation I felt comfortable with.
Earthquake Resurrection explores the possibility that the disappearance of a large group of believers worldwide will be masked by global catastrophe. This possibility is based on a pattern found in scripture that the power unleashed when a human being is resurrected into an immortal body causes a shaking of the surrounding earth. The pattern is evident with the two recorded historic instances of the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the "many saints who had died" in Matthew 27, as well as with the resurrection of the two witnesses of Revelation chapter 11 in the future.
What does this portend for the future, much larger, global resurrection of the dead in Christ? Will there be a global shaking of the earth from the power of the resurrection? What is the purpose of the "harpazo", the Greek term for the quick and sudden snatching or seizure of believers just after the resurrection of the dead in Christ? Is there some kind of harm from which they need be snatched away? What is the "trump of God" that accompanies the event? If God's voice was described as the sound of a trumpet in scripture, and in the past it caused Mount Sinai and the surrounding area to shake greatly, will this also occur when the trump of God is sounded at the resurrection of the dead in Christ?
All these and many more important questions are explored and answered in Earthquake Resurrection. If you have any interest in (a) the current natural disasters engulfing the earth, (b) the prophetic Word of God, or (c) the future of the planet, then this book is for you. Read early reviews and reactions to the book, selected excerpts of the book, and the many other resources on the site.
Thanks for your interest!
The author believes that the first four judgments of the Tribulation are happening now, and its not until the 5th or 6th seal judgments that the Trib begins. I'm not so sure about that, but otherwise the book was interesting and thought-provoking
If the first four judgments are NOW!
The A/c is revealed - WHO HIM?
WOT about the Temple - its not even built yet.
That's just for starters.
I like the idea of the earthquake though, that seems feasable!
