A Myth Revealed into a Reality

Image result for planes falling out of sky images

Most of the pre-tribulation action-packed rapture myth movies have planes falling out of the sky because some of the pilots were secretly raptured. Well, that ain’t gonna happen! When people start seeing planes fall out of the sky, it ain’t no rapture going down! Ops, make that up.

From Missing Links – Chapter X (See main menu.)

Most Christians believe that the Lord will first come to secretly rapture his church (fly away) and they will escape the Great Tribulation. Those left behind will have to face the Antichrist and suffer persecution unless they accept the mark of the beast. Moslems believe Christ will come back to fight the Antichrist, and Jews are waiting for the Messiah to come the first time. The pre-tribulation rapture doctrine has been made very popular by the fictional series, “Left Behind”. Millions of dollars have been made on the books and movie rights. It does make some good science fiction. But it is still fiction!

The whole concept is based on The Antichrist rising and deceiving those left behind after the rapture. The term antichrist is used in 1 John 2:18 & 22, 4:3 and 2 John 7, and is found nowhere else. To deny that Christ came in the flesh, died, and resurrected is to be antichrist. John said there were many already in the world. To deny the divinity of Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God is also to be antichrist. Technically speaking, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and any person who denies Jesus Christ or his divinity are antichrist. Atheists are just anti-any-ole-god!

Anti- means: to oppose, antagonize, contradict, or counteract. Antichrist is anyone or anything that is in opposition to, contradicts, or counteracts anything that Christ did or taught, which is antagonistic towards Christ.

The truth about tribulation can be found in the following scriptures: Deut. 4:30-31; Judges 10:14; 1 Sam. 26:24; Matt. 13:21, 24:21-31; Mk. 13:24; Jn. 16:33; Acts 14:22; Rom. 2:8-13, 5:1-5, 8:35, 12:12; 2 Cor. 1:4, 7:4; 1 Th. 3:4-5; 2 Th. 1:4-8; Rev. 1:9, 2:9-11, 2:21-23, 7:14-17. Tribulation is something to expect and will come upon all human beings. It is something in which God’s people can find faith, patience, and even comfort and joy. During the last days, those who have the faith of Jesus and keep the commandments of God will have patience in it, even to the death. (Rev. 14:12, 12:11) It is not something that we are going to escape by being beamed up to heaven by an angel named Scotty on the Good Ship Lollypop. Revelation 7:14 states, they which came out of (through) great tribulation are made white. You cannot get hamburger unless you first run the meat through a grinder. (Zec. 13:9; Is. 48:10; Amos 9:9; Ps. 7:6, 66:10; Dan. 12:10; 1 Pet. 1:17; Rev. 3:17-22)

The secret rapture theory did not appear in the churches until after 1830 AD. It was unknown to all the early church fathers. Justin, Irenaeus, and Terullian were convinced that the Christian Church would go though great tribulation at the hands of many antichrists before the Lord returned. The 18th century protestant reformers Huss, Knox, Wycliffe, Luther, Calvin, Cranmer, and Wesley never taught the Rapture Theory that many theologians do today. It covertly crept into the church and must have had a strategic purpose for its introduction. Most assuredly, Satan had his hand in it. He has it in everything else man has screwed up!

During the period of the reformation, the first Protestants believed and taught that the Papacy was antichrist, and the Roman Church was the harlot system of Revelation 17. Certain Romish theologians had thought it necessary to take the pressure off the Pope, so a new interpretation of prophecy was invented. The Jesuit priest Ribera (1537-1591) was first to teach that the prophetic events of Daniel and Revelation would not be fulfilled until the last 3.5 years at the end of the age when a global dictator or The Antichrist arose. The Roman Church was and still is the fulfillment! Like a CIA cover story, the Roman Church had to establish a cover story to conceal the truth. What else have they covered up?

Despite the efforts of Ribera and those of Cardinal Bellarmine later, it wasn’t until the early 19th century that this new futurist doctrine began to gain acceptance by Evangelical Christians. In 1830 Margaret McDonald, a young member of Edward Irving’s so-called Catholic Apostolic Church, prophesied that there would be a secret coming of the Lord to rapture those who awaited his return. [If this girl was a true Prophetess, then let’s all live off happy meals and wait for Captain Ronald McDonald of the Good Ship Lollypop.] (Eze. 13:17-23) Irving devoted his talent as an artful preacher to spreading the secret rapture theory until he died in 1834.

It has long been pointed out that pre-tribulationism is a relatively new doctrine. The present-day apocalyptic action-packed version has been the best-selling doctrine in all of Christendom. Not all Christians buy into the theory, but those who do are in a state of delusion. They think they will escape tribulation. (Is. 60:8-9; Eze. 13; 1 Th. 5:1-3) This state of delusion I call, THE GREAT FALSE HOPE.

During the time of trouble, the Christians who believe they will fly away and escape the tribulation will fall into the pit of false hope. (Is. 24:16-18) The snare will be a new lie to explain away the first lie that got them into the pit in the first place. Those who believed they would not go through the tribulation will wonder what went wrong. Shortly before the 21 days of silence (global communication breakdown), the false prophet will come forth with an answer. He will probably be someone highly decorated with man-made theological degrees.

Come out of Babylon for her judgement is near!

    “The whole concept is based on The Antichrist rising and deceiving those left behind after the rapture.” Right and as if he isn’t deceiving multitudes this very minute and has been for ages and that is straight across the board all churches and creeds but some much worse than others; holding onto Truth is not as easy as it seems it would be when dealing with people, we are “fallen after all and all fallible” to temptation or being mistaken! This Satan’s domain he is the prince of this fallen world so are we to believe we can have sections of society that are impervious to some corruption and foolishness or we have a protective blister around those special domains like Scotty just threw up some shields and no photon torpedoes will get through as long as we keep the reactor on full power or that energy cranking? Hocus-Pocus and storytelling is what is going on now quite a bit and back way back too; Satan infiltrated the Church basically immediately! We need to sift through all the paraphernalia and look at the basics to know what is going on and coming to us all only through the Holy Spirit that is our true guide; no man or church and even “Satan Claus” who is running the New World Order NOW if you hadn’t figured that out yet!!

    “34Now when they fall, they will be granted a little help, but many will join them insincerely. 35Some of the wise will fall, so that they may be refined, purified, and made spotless until the time of the end, for it will still come at the appointed time.” Daniel 11: 34-35

    Second Thessalonians 2:9-12 speaks of a strong delusion God will send in the end times: “The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

    Now do I think that the whole game going on here on earth can continue this way for a very long time; NO! We are in a final stage and it’s time for cataclysmic world events to occur, all of which has been building to a time when the needed components would all be in place! With the crazy people like Biden and Harris along with our now insane Woke Military do I think for one minute that our government along with Russia and Commie China are not going to screw up royally; NO! The poo is going to hit the fan big time not too far off maybe a few to several years but things have wound up tight and now with AI and Global Digital Communications we are ripe for the Antichrist or Satan and the darkest forces to make their move to subdue us all!

    Why America Will Disappear from World Prominence
    Looking for the Blessed Hope

    A heart for Israel…and Israel’s Messiah!

    Zero Lift-Off Only The Beginning

    Informational and sharing purposes only on this platform.

    August 1, 2021

    I’ve often wondered about this as many of you and others have through the decades and centuries! I had always had some interest in whether the Statue of Liberty and NYC with the United Nations being located there along with Wall Street a global trading financial hub would result in some specific Biblical prophecy but for the most part like multitudes of other people wasn’t connecting any dots indicating such a connection existed; until now! What follows are some Scriptural verses along with some of my own thoughts derived from recent developments in the Nations or Super Powers vying for World dominance and NWO then finally a writing on this subject that I just came upon which could very well be a most plausible reason why America isn’t mentioned in the final days leading up to Armageddon and Jesus Christ’s Second Coming to finally end this world.

    “I will show you the judgment of the great prostitute who is seated on many waters”

    Revelation 17:1-18
    Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great prostitute who is seated on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth have committed sexual immorality, and with the wine of whose sexual immorality the dwellers on earth have become drunk.” And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her sexual immorality. And on her forehead was written a name of mystery: “Babylon the great, mother of prostitutes and of earth’s abominations.”

    This may very well be the infant Nation much newer and younger in comparison to all European and Middle East ones, the New Babylon the Great. Could it be The United States?

    Liberty and Freedom are most definitely eroding here in the US just as they are throughout the world but this is a big deal here where our US Constitution and the Bill of Rights make it abundantly clear that American Citizens are supposed to be a Free and Christian People! As it was clearly stated by all of the Founding Fathers here is just one example of just how key and crucial a role Christianity and Freedom played in the establishing this Republic under God!

    Alexander Hamilton
    First US Secretary of the Treasury
    “In my opinion, the present constitution is the standard to which we are to cling…. Let an association be formed to be denominated ‘The Christian Constitutional Society,’ its object to be first: The support of the Christian religion. Second: The support of the United States.”
    Apr. 16-21, 1802, Letter to James Bayard
    That is a clear indication of what America was to be based on and represent for its People. Then there was this.

    Patrick Henry
    Member of the First Continental Congress, Governor of Virginia
    “The great pillars of all government…[are] virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone, that renders us invincible.”
    Jan. 8, 1799, Letter to Archibald Blai

    And then this beautiful statement.

    Thomas Paine
    Writer, Revolutionary leader
    “The cause of America is in a great measure the cause of all mankind. Where, say some, is the king of America? I’ll tell you, friend, He reigns above.”
    1776, Common Sense

    I add these few additional statements by other Founding Fathers that make it quite abundantly clear what the mindset and actual principles of America were intended to be, and I say why America rose to such prominence, prowess and power as the leading Nation of all Nations around the Globe for hundreds of years; a very blessed Nation. (GOD!)

    John Adams
    Second President of the US
    “We have no government armed in power capable of contending in human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.”
    1798, Address to the militia of Massachusetts
    “The experiment is made, and has completely succeeded: it can no longer be called in question, whether authority in magistrates, and obedience of citizens, can be grounded on reason, morality, and the Christian religion, without the mockery of priests, or the knavery of politicians.”
    1788, “A Defense of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America”

    John Jay
    First Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court
    “Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”
    Feb. 28, 1797, Letter to clergyman Jedidiah Morse

    George Mason
    Delegate to the Constitutional Convention, called the “father” of the US Bill of Rights
    “The laws of nature are the laws of God, whose authority can be superseded by no power on earth.”
    Robin v. Hardaway, Gener

    But here is the catch now for America and beyond! Most if not all of these prerequisites for this “Nation under God” to remain strong enough in a violent corrupted “Ways of The World” battle which the world has always been with all Nations feuding or attacking others, these precepts have been transgressed or marginalized to the point of practically being nonexistent and we can now see the results with “mostly corrupted self-serving dirty scoundrel politicians” and “most despicable leadership on all fronts,” “with sin and blasphemies against God and his Commandments overflowing through this Land of once truly Free People.” I call it a “Nut House” now with factions like BLM or Antifa and Corporate Groups that pull all the Punches and Shots needed in unison with all of the low life politicians; in order to rule this polluted system stepping all over our rights and even now attacking our health and happiness (our own bodies) with injecting horrible untested concoctions into our bodies and having us “Lock Down” like prisoners while many criminals are set free to run loose and this while We the People are “Not Free” to move around; as we just witnessed for the last year and a half.

    Please try to read on through the entire fairly short article; which will shed some light on what may very well be going on, and what to expect!

    Mystery Babylon

    Who is the Whore of Revelation 17?

    Whore

    Revelation 17:1 “And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, “Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: 2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”

    There is a popular belief that mystery Babylon refers to the Roman Catholic Church. One of the books most often quoted in support of this idea is Alexander Hislop’s “The Two Babylons”. The problem with this view is the fact that there are many false religions on the face of the earth that are neither Catholic nor Christian! As will be seen, the scriptures speak about this woman, whose origins are from ancient times, long before Christianity took up the cup of her abominations!

    The idol Ishtar, from the Babylonian empire, is very likely what is spoken of by Jeremiah the prophet as the queen of heaven (Jer 7:18; 44:16-19)

    Jeremiah 7:18 The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other elohim, that they may provoke me to anger.

    I can say this with confidence I don’t think this human race has zilch for time left in relation to how much time has passed since the dawn of mankind to sort out its crap and pull off a grand slam bases loaded and all runners come home and save the day! It’s out of control already and we weren’t driving this wreck and still aren’t like so many thought we were; not even the mentally deranged globalists are doing what they think they are, all are deceived and going to have a rude awakening when the darkest powers pull some punches and give us all the knockout blow; the old one two punch and you’re down for the 10 count!

      1. Good work when you can get it I would say, the real deal and close to living how God intended! Planting, growing and harvesting are as old as and at the Root of civilization actually made it what it is as in we have to eat right; while in turn helped grow it! My grandfather loved growing and caring for plants, animals and things out on the land! Yea I make long comments, but hopefully somewhere in all of my spiels a morsel or two of truth get someone’s attention is all I can hope for!
        Peace!
        God bless Bro!
        I hear ya too!
