Like it or not, the pope of the Roman Catholic Church, in the world’s view, represents the vast body that view calls Christendom. Increasingly, the current pope is in the news and leading the way in globalization.
I receive an email newsletter at least three times a week from a source called These Last Days Ministries. It is immersed in Catholicism in every aspect, including Mariology and all that idolatrous system entails. Yet those who put out the newsletter seem to hold to the pre-Trib view of Bible prophecy. They believe in the Rapture, I presume. However, it is the Rapture of all within Catholicism they embrace—again, I presume.
There is one thing sure about this group we can agree. Well, maybe several things…
They see this present world system as being on the trajectory toward globalism, and as being a precursor to the Antichrist regime. They believe the COVID-19 matter is a tool contrived to help achieve that world order. One other thing, and this is something they consistently bring to the forefront in their newsletters. They don’t like this pope and believe him to be, if not the false prophet of Revelation 13, certainly an anti-Christian, from the Roman Catholic viewpoint. I can agree to these things without reservation.
In that regard, I maintain the title of this commentary is most appropriate: “Pope at Apex of Antichrist’s Arrival.”
These Last Days Ministries sends out many “prophecies” given by those who they say receive such messages directly from God or from some saint—again, I presume. These, of course, are of no interest to yours truly. But the news articles they send are often more on the mark than many articles I receive from other sources. With regard to this present pope being at the forefront of the globalist assault on America and the world, one item I recently found in my in-box spotlights, in my opinion, the Vatican’s current diabolical collusion with the powers and principalities of Ephesians 6:12.
Three Swiss Guards have resigned and three others have been suspended after refusing to comply with a Vatican mandate that they get the COVID-19 vaccination.
The Swiss Guards, colloquially known as the Pope’s bodyguards, had previously been ordered “to protect their health and that of the others they come into contact with as part of their service” by getting the jab.
The mandate was part of a broader instruction to all Vatican employees to get the COVID shot or face losing their jobs.
“Besides the three guardsmen sent back to Switzerland, at least three others were suspended from active duty after they agreed to vaccinate but have yet to receive their jabs,” reports RT.
The fact that there is no religious exemption against taking the vaccine within the Vatican tells you everything you need to know about the Vatican and the Pope.
Pope Francis has repeatedly amplified pro-vaccination narratives and refused to extend any understanding to Catholics who are hesitant to take the jab.
The Pontifical Academy for Life, the official bioethics academy of the Catholic Church, has also insisted that it is a “moral responsibility” for Catholics to take the vaccine.
“The Vatican has said that it considers it acceptable for Catholics to use vaccines, even those that use stem cell lines from aborted fetuses in their research,” reported the Mail…
As we highlight in the video below, by enforcing vaccine mandates, the Pope is also enforcing vaccine passports, which some Catholics would argue represent something not too dissimilar from the Mark of the Beast from the book of Revelations [The article writer’s misspelling].
Wow, so Christian! (“Pope’s Swiss Guards Resign over Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccinati,” Paul Joseph Watson, Summit.news, 10/4/21)
Many among the Bible prophecy community—both of the pre-Trib belief and of other views—have long thought this pope to possibly be the False Prophet of Revelation 13—despite his advancing age. We can all agree that this pope certainly proclaims teachings contrary to the teachings of God’s Holy Word.
He has said on more than several occasions that there other ways to God, Heaven, and salvation of the soul than through belief in Jesus Christ alone. He has backed up those political minions in high places within the Catholic Church, giving them a pass on the murder of millions of babies through the abortion process. He has embraced at every opportunity the climate-change madness and the worship of Mother Earth and the Gaia mantra that we must all come together to save the planet.
He joins the totally reprobate purveyors of insanity who demand that all must either submit to an experimental, highly questionable injection or be excluded from the formerly normal activities of the compliant human community.
This, of course, comes very close indeed to what God has said Antichrist and his False Prophet will demand. Again, our article’s heading is not far from the truth!
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16–17)

Usually when coming against the pre-Trib view of Rapture, detractors say something like: “The word ‘rapture’ isn’t mentioned anywhere in the Bible.”
We usually retort with something like: “Neither are words such as ‘trinity’ or even ‘Bible.’ But they are clearly there when considering contexts and study of the body of scriptural evidence.”
“Besides,” we say, “the Greek word harpazo is found as the word rapturo in the Latin Vulgate.”
Anyone paying much attention to prophetic trends concerning eschatological viewpoints (whether premillennial, postmillennial, amillenial, or whatever) will have noticed by now a turning away from the pre-Trib position.
Even more strongly stated, we see an adamant, even scathingly antagonistic, movement away from this view.
My own thinking about the reason for this is that it is short-sightedness and experiential paralysis. Those who have abdicated–call it “defected from”—the pre-Trib Rapture position can’t conflate an imminent Rapture with the prophetic stage-setting we’re experiencing.
Our headlines create in the minds of these defectors an inability to any longer believe that Titus 2:13 really means what it says.
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ. (Titus 2: 13)
These defectors and/or detractors are experiencing the crush of the stage being set for the Tribulation (Daniel 9 and the book of Revelation) every hour of every day. Those who have always come against any idea of a pre-Trib Rapture are appearing to be increasingly validated through the things taking place in America and across the world.
They see the ethnic upheavals prophesied by Jesus (Luke 21 and Mark 13). They see the principalities and powers of wickedness in high places literally taking over this nation and the world. They see apostasy abounding everywhere they look—with the Roman Catholic pope leading the way in championing the murders of millions upon millions of babies in their mothers’ wombs, all the while denying that Jesus Christ is the only Way to reconciliation with God the Father and salvation.
Those angry against the view of the pre-Trib Rapture give Paul the apostle, who was given the mystery of that great Rapture event by the Lord Himself, little to no credence. Yet they point to how the “perilous times” (2 Timothy 3) prove their point that the Tribulation might already be in its beginning stage of fulfillment. “We are,” I heard one of these Rapture detractors say, “right in the middle of perilous times, and this proves there will be no Rapture before the Tribulation era becomes full blown.”
I listened to one pastor, who was said to have dropped out of the “Church of God,” say that he used to be a believer in the pre-Trib view, but he now sees it as a false and dangerous teaching. He, in effect, went on to lay out his case that all who believe in a pre-Trib Rapture, seeing all the things unfolding in the world today, are dopes. We are fools for such foolishness after living through such, at the very least, a time of just entering Tribulation.
The pastor went on to say that no place in the Bible states there will be a seven-year Tribulation period. He said it only speaks of the “Great Tribulation” mentioned by Jesus in the Olivet Discourse, and that what Jesus said proves that era will be only three and a half years.
Again, he and his anti-PreTrib Rapture sort point to the lack of a single verse in order to prove the pre-Trib view is false. (Our view—which is the Bible’s presentation—holds to a seven-year Tribulation). They can’t, or won’t, see that the wide body of text, in context, proves that the horrendous time leading up to the Second Advent of the Lord Jesus encompasses seven years. All we have to do is to look at Daniel’s prophecy of seven weeks of years (Daniel chapter 9) to understand the time span that will wrap up God’s plan that leads to the millennial reign of Christ.
The pastor then said we who are of the pre-Trib belief refuse to debate him and others on the matter. He is right about that. I and others have long ago refused to debate whether there is a pre-Trib Rapture. It serves no purpose, as all the issues have been long-ago debated and with only harsh rhetoric emerging when the final analyses concluded.
We point people who want truth to the “mystery” given Paul as he expounded upon in 1 Corinthians 15:51–55 and 1 Thessalonians 4:13–18. No need to debate the pre-Trib Rapture. It is there for anyone to clearly understand with the Holy Spirit’s guidance.
I’m convinced that anyone and everyone who genuinely seeks truth by studying these Scriptures will find that the pre-Trib view and the “blessed hope” of Titus 2:13 isn’t held by a bunch of “dopes,” as charged by the detractors/defectors.
As Halloween nears, a summit is scheduled, and the things the meetings mask are grotesque.
Pope Francis and President Joe Biden have been shown to be instruments of the growing evil that afflicts this end-times generation. At least their statements and policy dictates, in the biblical view of moral matters involving humanity, have been exposed as Ephesians 6:12-level wickedness.
The following report by a mainstream paper in league with those policies and dictates frames the upcoming meeting.
President Biden will meet with Pope Francis at the Vatican on Oct. 29 during a trip to Europe for two high-profile global summits, the White House announced Thursday.
Biden and Francis will discuss “working together on efforts grounded in respect for fundamental human dignity, including ending the COVID-19 pandemic, tackling the climate crisis, and caring for the poor,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement.
Biden, the United States’ second Catholic president, has been at the center of a debate within the Catholic Church about whether he should be able to receive Communion because of his support for abortion rights.
First lady Jill Biden will join her husband in meeting Francis. Biden will already be traveling to Rome for the Group of 20 summit, hosted by Italy. His meeting with the pope had been widely anticipated. (“Biden to meet with Pope Francis to discuss coronavirus, climate change, poverty,” Seung Min Kim and Michelle Boorstein, The Washington Post)
As stated, Biden will be in Rome for the G20 Leaders’ Summit October 30–31. It is a fitting time, perhaps, coming at Halloween. He will next travel to Glasgow, Scotland, November 1–2 to be part of the World Leader Summit in the COP26 climate-change gathering.
The Catholic pontiff and Biden will, according to the report, engage in an effort to bring the so-called COVID-19 pandemic to an end. They will work to find ways to end climate change, and to make sure all peoples can live in dignity and peace, with equity for all. And, it is through redistribution of America’s wealth (what is left of it) that they intend to achieve that equity.
They will put the Halloween mask on the matter of good Catholic Biden’s championing the slaughter of millions of babies in their mothers’ wombs—a large percentage of those children black. They will mask the fact that he and his political party—along with the mainstream media that totally supports his wicked policies—are destroying American liberty at every turn with his demands that we receive untested vaccines—vaccines that statistics increasingly show are causing growing numbers of injuries and deaths.
The pope, himself wearing a mask that hides his true agenda, will no doubt give the American occupant of the White House a pass on the matter of abortion. His mask obviously has two mouth holes. He says from one side that abortion is murder. He says from the other that the Catholic Church’s position is “pastoral,” and that the issue of abortion is “political.”
While I can’t say for certain what he means, I presume he means that the Catholic Church needs to butt out of the issue—at least as it concerns Joe Biden’s support for the murder of babies in the womb.
The sad thing to consider is that the masking as we approach Halloween this year has strong, biblically prophetic overtones. The masking—not just of most of humanity, but of much of what was until a year or two ago considered logical, moral, and sane—now is made, at best, gnarled and grotesque by the mask-demons—the minions, both human and demonic of Ephesians 6:12.
The closer we come to understanding that we are at the very end of this Church Age (Age of Grace), the better we see the prophetic application. While God’s restraining hand is, thankfully, still active during these closing moments of this dispensation, the devil and his minions are busy masking everything and everybody—preparing planet earth for the delusion that is soon to come on an unbelieving world of rebels.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thessalonians 2:11–12)
This story by my friend Pete Garcia is one that brings together in novel form much of the developments taking place in these end times. Those who have read Pete’s amazing articles over the years know the level of Bible prophecy discernment with which God has Blessed his writing. This is a story that I believe presents Holy Spirit enlightenment, and will provide much needed understanding of these troubled times.
Major Tristan Zavota, a 46 yr. old US Army officer on the verge of retirement is now on his fourth deployment to Afghanistan to assist in the draw down of US forces there. In Europe, an ambitious decision to launch a new digital currency triggers a series of calamitous events which not only collapse the global economy and force a new world order to emerge, but leaves Tristan hopelessly stranded in hostile territory with no chance to escape. But God…
HOBO is a story of a man, who in the process of losing everything, finds God, redemption, and purpose in a world in free fall in the last days.
Pete Garcia is a seasoned writer, speaker, and teacher of Bible Prophecy and apologetics. He is a twenty-two Army veteran, with numerous deployments to the Middle East, Europe, and Asia. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations, with a focus on Russian and Military History. Pete is also a ten-year veteran writer with Jack Kinsella’s Omega Letter, and now, his own site Rev310.net. Pete has contributed to three of Terry James’ books, Discerners, Lawless, and Trajectory.
You don’t want to miss this astonishing story by the author who has an insiders understanding of and perspective on what’s going on in this troubled world. –And what is on the verge of happening next!
To order HOBO: Volume I go to the following. HOBO VOLUME ONE
A growing threat in America at this critical moment of US history involves a term we’ve become familiar with; it’s one we hear on an almost daily basis. It involves the most basic element of the nation’s family unit.
The term is CRT—for Critical Race Theory. The threat the term and ideology most represents is aimed at America’s children.
Here is one definition as presented in today’s leftist vernacular.
critical race theory (CRT), intellectual movement and loosely organized framework of legal analysis based on the premise that race is not a natural, biologically grounded feature of physically distinct subgroups of human beings but a socially constructed (culturally invented) category that is used to oppress and exploit people of colour. (https://www.britannica.com/topic/critical-race-theory)
CRT is a direct and destructive assault on the foundation of morality and liberty endowed by God and constitutionally assured by the founding fathers. This is because at its black heart is the insidious brainwashing of children in the public classrooms, from kindergarten through graduate levels of higher education.
CRT pits human being against human being. It divides in a most hateful and dangerous way at the God-ordained level of individual personhood, using skin color to do its destructive work.
Luciferian minions among us are rewriting history to paint true champions of God-given human rights as evil tyrants, even though it is those heroes who ultimately did away with slavery and legislated rights that were totally inclusive for all men and women, no matter their gender or the hue of their skin.
These minions are inculcating white children with the lies that they are evil perpetrators of hatred against people of color. They are guilty of being white, guilty of association to the founding fathers and all their whiteness. These minions are teaching children of darker-hued skin that they are victims and must do what is necessary to come against all whose skin is determined to be white. It is taught that violence against such whiteness is justified. Black lives matter and white lives don’t is at the center of the CRT curriculum.
The minions have so infiltrated the US government that institutions under the Justice Department, such as the FBI, now insanely threaten to incarcerate and punish in many personal and family ways moms and dads who legally protest school boards that continue to fill the children with such hellish, hateful propaganda.
It looks for the moment that the minions are having their way. The satanic blueprint to bring down the United States of America so that the Antichrist system of global control can be constructed, unhampered, seems to be coming to fruition.
But, as we’ve observed time and time again, God’s restrainer, the Holy Spirit, indwelling all believers who constitute the Church of Jesus Christ, continues to hold back the evil that threatens.
We see this again in the mothers and fathers standing against CRT being taught in the schools of America. A great many of these parents are Christians, and, I believe, are Holy Spirit-inspired to make this stand in these closing days of the Church Age (Age of Grace). God is using these to restrain Satan and his minions’ assault on the children of the nation.
The God of Heaven is not idle. He is at work in many ways we aren’t aware of. He sees the end-times battle against the powers and principalities of Ephesians 6:12 in terms of His Son’s perfect righteousness.
God’s own CRT program is in direct opposition to the wicked CRT campaign on earth we’re witnessing in its attempts to destroy the nation through stealing the minds of our children and youth. I term God’s CRT program “Christ’s Righteousness Theology.” This CRT contains all that is necessary to combat all the wickedness the powers and principalities in high places can throw at our nation—at us.
We as Christians must let the world around us see our Lord’s righteousness—yes, even His righteous anger—against evil that is exploding across culture and society at this closing time for human history.
Christians are a last line of defense at this crucial time just before the Rapture takes us to the dwelling places Jesus has prepared for those who belong to Him (John 14:1–3).
We must stand against the atrocity of abortion, against the madness of anti-God sexual deviancy, against the humanity-destructive things wrapped up in racism, no matter the perpetrators.
All people are equal in our God’s holy eyes, as He offers mankind the righteousness that makes men, women, and children eligible for redemption. The words of His own son, Jesus, says it all about Heaven’s CRT program.
For god so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
It seems to me that Satan’s plan for all of humanity is pretty well encapsulated in one verse:
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. (1 Peter 5:8)
God’s indictment here seems to point to Satan’s hatred for and desire to destroy true believers. However, today’s hourly news increasingly shows that the fallen one’s murderous rampage is against all of mankind.
We don’t have to search far to make the case.
The devil and his minions are increasing their concerted assault. We’ve looked often at proof that the “principalities and powers in high places” (Ephesians 6:12) are at work today. But that wickedness has, within just the past couple of years, accelerated in astonishing ways.
Many of us have concluded that no single person or group could orchestrate the kinds of evil we’re witnessing. The flow of destructive effort is beyond human ability. Those carrying out the concerted assault are following a blueprint given them—whether they know it or not—by the same one accused by God in the verse above. Lucifer is the master director of the movement toward what the human minions of Ephesians 6:12 are now calling the “Great Reset.”
Symptoms of this flow of wickedness throughout society and culture can’t be missed by Christians (and even secular, morality-centered, common-sense people) who aren’t hiding their heads in the sands of daily life. The compiling evidence is just too “in our face.”
Let’s consider a few of the more overt actions being used to bring America and much of the world into compliance with the plan Lucifer and his minions are using to corrupt and ultimately bring down humankind.
The plan to herd Americans—and eventually, all people—into the one-world corral, I believe it has become clear, has as its black heart what my friend, the late Chuck Missler, once called a “micro-beast.”
This infinitesimally tiny virus is doing to American liberty what no outside enemy could do. It is being used to force compliance with the blueprint that anti-God, anti-Christ governmental controllers intend to use in order to bring about—again, wittingly and/or unwittingly—the Great Reset that will eventuate in the forming of Antichrist’s beast regime.
We are literally seeing day by day, hour by hour, the minions closing the noose. Or, perhaps a better simile would be that we’re witnessing the masses being herded into the one-world corral. COVID and all of its proclaimed variants are forcing this end-times movement toward fulfillment of Bible prophecy at a startling pace.
COVID vaccine passports are becoming the “show me your papers” that once was a joking statement by the comedian Artie Johnson on the TV show Laugh-In. It is no longer a laughing matter for those who cherish the liberty the founding fathers gave us constitutionally—the freedom they said, correctly, was God-given.
Ensconced firmly within the plan for the Great Reset are the reprobate dictates meant to destroy any semblance of normality and morality. It is all straight from the mind of Lucifer, who hates mankind.
A recent item prominent in one the few sources of news that aren’t compromised by the media minions starkly tells of the evil being foisted on those of us who hold to God’s view of morality.
A father is claiming the Loudoun County school district attempted to cover up his daughter’s alleged assault in the girls’ bathroom at Stone Bridge High School by a boy wearing a skirt.
Scott Smith was arrested in June at a school in Loudoun County, Virginia, during a board meeting at which hundreds of parents voiced concerns about the district’s transgender policy and Critical Race Theory (CRT)….
Just prior to Smith’s arrest at the meeting, the Loudoun County Public Schools superintendent told attendees opposed to the transgender bathroom policy their concerns were unfounded since the school district had no record of any assaults in school bathrooms, the Daily Wire reported.
An LGBTQ activist at the meeting reportedly told Smith his daughter’s claim of assault was not believable because there were no records of such assaults.
Smith said, with that statement, he “went nuts” and insulted the principal, and was subsequently arrested. (“Father: Loudoun County Schools Hid Daughter’s Bathroom Assault by Boy Wearing Skirt,” Elaine Thompson/Associated Press, Breitbart News [@BreitbartNews])
The assault charges against the alleged attacker are so salacious, I won’t include them. The high school male student claiming to be transgender was moved to another school rather than being incarcerated, as I understand it for now. He, it was reported, went on to sexually assault another student at the new school.
The insanity that is within Satan’s plan to corrupt and destroy God’s creation is seen in microcosm in this story. The boy allegedly committing the horrendous crime was protected. The father of the daughter who was the victim was arrested for protesting the atrocity. This proves the point I like to make—that this generation is at the point Paul forewarned of in Romans 1: 28:
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.
While the principalities and powers of Ephesians 6:12 continue at a frenzied pace to implement their master’s plan, we can be assured that God’s plan, not the devil’s, will prevail.
And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. (Revelation 21:5–8)
For those who observe the signs of the times—the end-times weather report—indicators continue to mount that Christ’s Second Coming must be near. For pre-Tribbers, this accumulation of signals means the Rapture of the Church could be near indeed.
We’ll take a brief look at two signs that point to the approaching seven years of Daniel’s seventieth week, also called the Tribulation. Like so many other developments, these seem to speak specifically of major prophetic fulfillment following the Rapture (see 1 Corinthians 15: 51–55; 1 Thessalonians 4:13–18; John 14:1–3; and Revelation 4:1).
First we have the two beasts of Revelation chapter 13, the Antichrist and the False Prophet. The first beast, Antichrist, will be the world political dictator who ultimately will be indwelt by Satan. The second beast, the False Prophet, will head the global religion that is against the God of Heaven and Jesus Christ with all demonic power that the “woman that rides the beast” can muster.
Like so many other signs we analyze in these increasingly wicked times, the second beast’s system of false religion is coming into focus. The current Catholic pope, as many Bible prophecy students have suggested, seems to be at the forefront of prophetic progression. The foretelling of this demonic, religious system is described in the prophetic passage below. The strange “beast” described here is comprised of the future ten worldwide spheres of control, Antichrist’s government. The “great whore” who rides this beast is the False Prophet’s evil, religious organization.
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: 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. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. (Revelation 17:1–6)
So it shouldn’t surprise us that if this generation is near the end of this Church Age (Age of Grace), there should be signs of this evil system at least in some stage of development.
The following excerpt, I believe, provides such a signal:
Grand Imam of Al-Azhar Al-Sharif, Ahmed Al-Tayeb, and Pope Francis of the Catholic Church, held a special Chrislam summit in the Vatican, following their participation in the Summit of Religious Leaders on Climate Change, entitled “Faith and Science”. Welcome to the One World Religion!
Pope Francis flew to Abu Dhabi to present the end times covenant of Chrislam to Grand Imam Ahmed al-Tayeb, how both men signed this document and then sealed their pact by a kiss on the mouth. Today, Ahmed al-Tayeb was present and accounted for at the Vatican as part of Rome’s preparation for their upcoming participation in the COP26 UN Climate Conference in Glasgow in November. (“Pope Francis Holds Special Gaia One World Religion Meeting With Chrislam Co-Founder Grand Muslim Imam Ahmed Al-Tayeb at Vatican Today,” Geoffrey Grider, NTEB, Rapture Ready post, October 6, 2021)
The other item that lets us peer a bit into prophetic progression toward Tribulation-era fulfillment involves Revelation 13:16–18).
This, of course, is an area of prophecy we’ve looked at many times. It’s almost uncanny, the clarity with which we can detect the rapid coming-together of satanic control that will mark the Tribulation era. We are, for example, seeing now advanced stages of manipulative, governmental machinations through growing mandates demanding that people around the world obey COVID compliance. Already their dictatorial tyranny is declaring that people can’t buy or sell without proof of vaccine compliance.
A report several days ago stated that one man was so eager to display his vaccine “passport” that he had it tattooed, in detail, on top of his hand. He was about to take a booster shot, so was going to get that additional detail included to bring his compliance up to date.
It also shouldn’t be surprising that the nation and people most mentioned in Bible prophecy yet future are at the very center of the developing Orwellian demand with regard to governmental compliance.
After earlier claiming that only two injections would be necessary in order to obtain a “green pass,” the government of Israel is now forcefully demanding that all Israelis received a third jab of the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) in order to maintain the “privilege” of buying and selling.
As many as two million Israelis who took the first two “vaccines” from “Operation Warp Speed” but not the third recently lost their green passes, according to reports. Until they comply, these double jabbed people will now be considered “unvaccinated” in the eye of the government. (“Israel just nullified vaccine passports for all double jabbed people…now only the triple jabbed get ‘freedom,’”Ethan Huff, Naturalness, Rapture Ready post, October 05, 2021)
The entirety of the prophetic horizon seems filled with such developing Tribulation storm clouds.
Stage-setting for what might be soon fulfillment inundates our daily lives. The Rapture will suddenly bring judgment and wrath upon an unsuspecting world of anti-God rebellion and wickedness. That should cause all of us who are looking for our blessed hope to witness of Christ’s soul-saving power and of His offering supernatural safety from the coming Tribulation storm.
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. (Luke 21: 28)
Thank you for your generosity!
Thanks to each of you in our Rapture Ready family for your wonderful generosity in making it possible to publish the Prophecy Power book in Pakistan’s Urdu language!
The funds have been sent to begin the publication of that Bible prophecy study book, and we will keep you apprised of how its sales and distribution are going. While books will be given to pastors and others at no cost so they might promote the book in their areas of influence, we hope that the sale at a modest price will help make future publication of the book self-sustaining.
The Pakistani ministry receives 100% of sales of the book.
May the Lord bless each of you who made this work on Heaven’s behalf possible.
Pastor Anil Jasper and his wife, Jamila, will be sending along their own thanks shortly.
In Christ Jesus,
***Thanks from Pakistan***
I am presenting Urdu translation work of the book “Prophecy Power” before Throne Room of our our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in humility. It is a unique and precious gift which is revealing God’s wonderful and glorious plan for His Church. His return will be imminent. We believe that at the end of Church Age Jesus will intervene in the affairs of mankind to collect all believers from this planet earth.
I am also greatly indebted of Lord’s faithful servant Terry James who has given us permission to translate and publish this book.
During our prophetic ministry, Lord Jesus opened Heavenly Doors so I and Jamila can share His Prophetic Truths with uncountable souls. We are thankful of Terry and Rapture Ready family’s unforgettable support to accomplish what was ordained by God.
The book’s translation was started somewhere in 2004 and completed in 2005. We have been keeping this manuscript safe in our computer’s hard disk for the last 17 years.
I strongly believe that this book will be great source of encouragement for all those committed Christians and Servants of Jesus Christ who are awaiting for His soon return.
May Lord bless every reader and prepare them for the Heavenly Kingdom!
Rev. Anil Jasper
Saturdays are no longer my favorites like they were when I worked full time in my jobs in advertising and public relations. Back then, I welcomed the relaxation that came with the day immediately following hectic weeks of meetings with clients and concocting and conducting campaigns for corporations to get products and services in front of the public.
Nowadays, Saturdays bore me, because I like to start my days early by listening to TV programs while sipping coffee. The programs are mostly preacher boys (as they’re sometimes called here in the south) such as Dr. David Jeremiah, Dr. Robert Jeffress, Les Feldick, and others who present daily programs. These regularly scheduled programs aren’t on my satellite system on Saturdays. My routine is disrupted.
However, a past Saturday, I was pleasantly surprised while clicking through the channels when I heard a program that was presenting a documentary that piqued my interest. It was on Daystar Television, and it featured of a number of men and a couple of women talking about how true Bible prophecy is a dwindling topic in most all churches in America.
I suspected who a couple of the men were, but never knew for sure, because, of course, I’m now blind. I started watching somewhere in the middle of the documentary, so didn’t have a frame of reference for those speaking in brief clips.
I did think I recognized my dear friend Jan Markell—she will have to let me know—but she was the only one who sounded familiar.
Those who addressed the matters involved were true Bible teachers, to be sure. They outlined precisely how the churches in America today are avoiding talk of prophecy and of Christ’s return. Pastors, they correctly surmised, are most afraid that talk of the Rapture of the Church and of Christ’s return and other prophetic topics will somehow interfere with “growing their churches.”
How sad but true their collective assessments were. The closer the time comes for Jesus to return to earth and correct this horrendous mess Satan and his minions have made of the planet, the less preachers want to preach it, and the more many in the pews prefer not to hear about it.
I thought while listening: How true it is, the forewarning of Jesus Himself when He asked whether He would find faith on the earth when He comes back.
Those being interviewed in the documentary went into depth about how those with the Holy Spirit were the people mentioned in the parable of the ten virgins. How those who have the Holy Spirit within will go into the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Those without the “oil for their lamps” (the Holy Spirit) won’t be part of that glorious event. They spoke of how there was great resistance not only to talk of the Rapture, but to the belief that the Holy Spirit even, in fact, exists.
It is abundantly clear that those who don’t even believe the Holy Spirit exists lead the way in the “Rapture resistance” that is the title of this commentary. A study looks more deeply into this tragic, downward spiral in Christendom.
Of an estimated 176 million American adults who identify as Christian, just 6% or 15 million of them actually hold a biblical worldview, a new study from Arizona Christian University shows.
The finding was published by the Cultural Research Center of Arizona Christian University in its recently released American Worldview Inventory, an annual survey that evaluates the worldview of the U.S. adult population. Conducted in February, the survey included a nationally representative sample of 2,000 adults.
The study shows, in general, that while a majority of America’s self-identified Christians, including many who identify as evangelical, believe that God is all-powerful, all-knowing and is the Creator of the universe, more than half reject a number of biblical teachings and principles, including the existence of the Holy Spirit.
Strong majorities also errantly believe that all religious faiths are of equal value, people are basically good and that people can use acts of goodness to earn their way into Heaven. The study further showed that majorities don’t believe in moral absolutes; consider feelings, experience, or the input of friends and family as their most trusted sources of moral guidance; and say that having faith matters more than which faith you pursue.

How accurate this polling research is, I don’t know. But certainly all one has to do is to mention the Rapture to most who claim to be Christians and there is either silence or statements like “I don’t like to think about prophecy. It scares me.”
It apparently scares most pastors, too, but for a different reason—the one mentioned earlier.
To eliminate the Holy Spirit is to eliminate the “hope” that is within the “blessed hope” of Titus 2: 13.
Jesus told the disciples—and us down through the centuries—that if He went away, He would send the “comforter”—the Holy Spirit. God the Holy Spirit (the Third Person of the Triune Godhead) came at Pentecost (see Acts chapter 2) to indwell and comfort believers until Jesus returns bodily to set up His Millennial Kingdom.
The Holy Spirit is the Restrainer (see 2 Thessalonians chapter 2). He holds back full-blown wickedness at this very moment. The Holy Spirit will remove from that office of Restrainer when we who are true believers are taken instantly to be with Christ.
Here is what Jesus said about that moment. And, despite what a number of seminary professors say, it is a Rapture passage—a mystery that the great Apostle Paul would later reveal in His epistles to the Corinthians and Thessalonians.
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. (John 14:1–3)
