Satanic Noose Tightening

America’s health can be clearly seen as in unprecedented danger, as Lucifer’s blueprint for establishing the New World Order becomes clearer.

Former US Representative Michele Bachmann seems to be the only well-known person who senses the full extent of the danger. She is speaking out and there is, to this point, muted response from elected officials charged with the responsibility—that is, elected—to keep us safe.

The danger involves the attempt of the Biden administration to turn over America’s sovereignty in the matter of health-mandating to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Bachmann said, when speaking to Steve Bannon on The War Room: 

This is the biggest global power grab that we have seen in our lifetimes.

She went on to say:

This authority that they will be given will impact 99.4% of all the people in the world. There are 193 nations belonging to the UN. The Biden administration is bringing amendments that were proposed that all nations of the earth cede their sovereignty over their national health care decisions to the WHO.

She then laid out the true evil wrapped up in this presidential administration’s desired action if the proposed matter is voted on and passed by Congress.

This means that the WHO would have decision-making authority to intervene in the United States government policy and any nation of the world without our permission. For instance, the lockdown where you see 26 million people today locked down in Shanghai, China. They can’t leave their apartments or homes. The WHO would have the authority to be able to enforce that here in the United States, on whatever pretext they want. They don’t have to show data. They could do this.

She made clear the dangers involved in summation.

What this does, bottom line is that it creates a platform for global governance through the WHO.

She emphasized the time-critical factor in dealing with the matter.

This is what people need to know. It’s time-sensitive. No one knew about this. The Biden administration gave these proposed amendments to the WHO on January 18. No one knew this until April 12, less than a month ago. But in less than two weeks, the delegates will vote on this in Geneva, Switzerland. The Biden administration has already released a  list of countries, forty of the most powerful countries in the world, including Canada, the EU, and the UK, and Australia. These countries are going along with the Biden administration’s insane push to give sovereignty over to the untrustworthy WHO.

This indeed seems to be perhaps the strongest attempted actions yet of the globalist factions in America to bring the nation under the powers and principalities of Ephesians 6:12. While the end of the age looms larger than ever, Satan’s minions, both demonic and human, now observably, rather than merely under the dark veil of surreptition, are on the offensive.

My friend Daymond Duck gave the following further assessment of the noose-tightening we’ve been seeing.

The situation will continue to get worse because Biden and the Democrats won’t face the real problem (they have turned their back on God and the truth) Build Back Better is about weakening America, globalism is about establishing a godless world government and religion, abortion and the gay agenda are contrary to Scripture, a Disinformation Governance Board is about denial of free speech, etc. (“Worse Than The MAGA Crowd,” Daymond Duck, May 13, 2022, raptureready.com)

The vote on turning over control of the nation’s sovereignty to the Ephesians 6:12 principalities and powers, I presume, will be taken by the time this commentary is published/posted. God’s Restrainer is still restraining. We still can see the derision of Psalm 2 afflicting the luciferian forces in America and around the globe while they try to bring in the Antichrist regime.

Before the noose can tighten beyond remedy, Jesus will call the Church to Himself (Revelation 4:1). You want to be one of the believers who hears that call so you can avoid the deadly reign of the Beast of Revelation chapter 13. Here’s how you can escape that last seven years of God’s judgment and wrath.

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9–10)

Well, Lo and Behold! Event 202? Monkeypox :: By Cynthia Nuara

Last year, in a discussion at a conference in Munich, they had a “fictional” simulation in which a lab-modified version of monkeypox was intentionally released via aerosols in train stations in the fictional country of Brinia by agents of a terrorist group operating in neighboring Arnica. This mid-May outbreak in Brinia quickly spread to the rest of the world. The exercise scenario concludes with over three billion cases and 270 million fatalities globally.

The conference was called Strengthening Global Systems to Prevent and Respond to High-Consequence Biological Threats: Results from the 2021 Tabletop Exercise Conducted in Partnership with the Munich Security Conference.

(As part of the scenario development process, NTI conducted a virtual consultation with experts in December 2020.)

How “coincidental” it is that, IN REALITY, someone who traveled to “Africa” brought monkeypox to “Britain” (he was diagnosed on May 7), starting the current outbreak that has now begun to spread in other countries as of mid-May 2022!

EXERCISE SUMMARY: The scenario reveals that the initial outbreak was caused by a terrorist attack using a pathogen engineered in a laboratory with inadequate biosafety and biosecurity provisions and weak oversight. Through intentional modifications made by Arnican virology lab scientists sympathetic with the Arnican terrorists, this monkeypox strain is assumed to be more contagious than naturally occurring monkeypox. The lab-modified strain is also engineered to be resistant to the smallpox vaccine.

The release in Brinia results in 150 initial infections on May 15, 2022. By June 1, travel from Brinia has seeded infections in the rest of the world. The combined global pandemic leads to more than three billion cumulative cases and more than 270 million deaths by the end of December 2023. At the peak of the pandemic, nearly 500 million individuals are infected at the same time, and there are 161 million people simultaneously in need of hospitalization.

Remember Event 201?

The Event 201 “pandemic exercise” on October 18, 2019, was hosted by The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

The Event 201 Scenario

Event 201 simulates an outbreak of a novel zoonotic coronavirus transmitted from bats to pigs to people that eventually becomes efficiently transmissible from person to person, leading to a severe pandemic. The pathogen and the disease it causes are modeled largely on SARS, but it is more transmissible in the community setting. There is no possibility of a vaccine being available in the first year.

Since the whole human population is susceptible, during the initial months of the pandemic, the cumulative number of cases increases exponentially, doubling every week. And as the cases and deaths accumulate, the economic and societal consequences become increasingly severe.

The Reality

The first known case of coronavirus was identified in Wuhan, China, in late December 2019 (several weeks after the October 18, 2019 Event 201 “simulated coronavirus pandemic exercise”). However, it is estimated that the SARS-CoV-2 virus was likely circulating undetected for at most two months before the first human cases of COVID-19.

Officials confirmed a case of COVID-19 in Thailand on January 13, 2020, the first recorded case outside of China.

WHO’s situation report for 30 January 30, 2020, reported 7818 total confirmed cases worldwide, with the majority of these in China, and 82 cases reported in 18 countries outside China. WHO gave a risk assessment of very high for China, and high at the global level.

On March 11, 2020, deeply concerned both by the alarming levels of spread and severity, and by the alarming levels of inaction, the World Health Organization (WHO) made the assessment that COVID-19 can be characterized as a pandemic.

And we all know the rest of the story.

Folks, how stupid do the globalist elites think we are? Then again, many are deceived.

2 Timothy 3:13 tells us that in the last days, “evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”

“For vain man would be wise, though man be born like a wild ass’s colt” (Job 11:12).

Apostacy and America

We who look into Bible prophecy and try to understand things taking place that might have prophetic significance are often accused of approaching all this through an Amerocentric prism. That is, we concentrate too much on how it might apply to America.

If we do this—and I concede that we do in much of our analysis—we look through this prism because America, as a nation, is so obviously guilty before God. This nation is the most materially blessed in all of human history. America is also one of the most spiritually blessed, in that the nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles by men who, if not Christian, at least chose to tether our founding to the unmovable pillars of biblical morality and reverence for human life.

I say America is guilty because it takes a very little look into matters to see that we have strayed about as far from biblical precepts for conduct of life as possible.

We’ve looked at the term apostasia lately. I expressed that I believe this term, found in 2 Thessalonians chapter 2, might be both a spatial or physical departure and a spiritual or defection from faith departure. That portion of the scripture is as follows.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition. (2 Thessalonians 2:3)   

The term “falling away” here is the word apostasia in Greek, the language used to present the New Testament.

While I continue to believe apostasia means “spatial departure,” certainly students of Bible prophecy, if honest in their analysis of American society and culture, can’t but conclude that there has taken place a profound apostasia, or spiritual departure, in this highly blessed nation.

We cannot look to American society and culture in general to determine whether it is true that there has been a profound departure from the faith–a spiritual apostasia. The vast American populace of any generation has and is now in a lost condition. That is, people who do not know Jesus Christ as Savior are in the great majority. These have not fallen away, as prophesied in the 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 passage above. They can’t  because they have never been in the salvation category; one cannot fall from a position they have never occupied. The only way to fall away is to have once been in that higher position.

Now let’s not get confused. We aren’t talking about losing one’s salvation. Nothing and nobody can snatch the believer from God’s mighty hand once they have experienced salvation through belief in the Lord Jesus Christ–God’s only way to redemption and Heaven for eternity. (Read John 14: 6 and Romans 8: 38-39).

Apostasia, in the spiritual sense of falling away, or spiritual departure, involves those who have falsely professed Christ as Savior—who have professed only in the faith system of Christianity, but not in Christ, Himself, for their salvation. They have never truly believed in God’s one and only way to Himself in the redemption process.

So, in the spiritual sense, America is likely the most notable nation of this last-days falling away or apostasia. America has the largest number of professing adherents to the system called Christendom, but those aren’t necessarily a part of the true Christian faith. The question, then, is do we see a movement away from that faith system known as Christendom? The following gives a resounding answer:

NAPLES, Florida (LifeSiteNews) – A “Christian” church in Florida plans to host on Saturday an LGBTQ “Youth Pride Conference,” featuring a drag show and a “sex education” talk by a Planned Parenthood speaker.

The event, which is being run by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), is advertised as “an exploration of LGBTQ issues facing today’s youth,” “organized by and for LGBTQ students.”

The host church, the Naples United Church of Christ (Naples UCC), styles itself as a “progressive church in terms of openness to a wide theological spectrum and the wide variety of lifestyles and orientations in our culture.”

In addition to a drag show featuring “local drag queens,” the event will hold a variety of talks during breakout sessions, with themes including “Forbidden Queer Literature,” “Inclusive Sex Education,” with Kathryn Ross, who works for Planned Parenthood, “Coming Out,” and “Navigating a Religious Identity.” (“Christian’ church to host LGBT youth event with drag show, ‘sex ed’ talk from Planned Parenthood,” LifeSite, Rapture Ready News, May 18, 2022)

America has, it would seem, been chosen in a way by God for special purposes, including to be the physical protector of Israel during its rebirth and to the end of this age. Therefore, America has been blessed by the Almighty, from her own birth, with founding fathers who held to godly precepts.

No other nation has been more steeped in the Christian faith than has the United States. Therefore, the Amerocentric view in consideration of whether we can see spiritual defection or apostasia in this time so near the end of the Age of Grace (Church Age) is relevant and even essential.

It is sad to consider that our nation might have already lost God’s blessings, but we must consider that possibility.

We can, individually, continue to receive our God’s blessings by remaining faithful in every way to His high calling–to look to Jesus Christ with all our praise and to look to Him to guide our pathways.

Above all, we must do our utmost to avoid the mistakes of the people God condemns no matter the generation. We see that condemnation in His words through the prophet Jeremiah.

Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fall: in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down, saith the LORD. (Jeremiah 8: 12)

Supreme Justice

Advancing forces of wickedness, using tactics and strategies we’ve become familiar with, continue their juggernaut ways. We’ve watched and warned for literally years that worship at the altar of Mother Earth will be at the center of Satan’s blueprint for bringing all into compliance with, ultimately, Antichrist’s regime. It seems clear that America, under the current administration, is leading the way in implementing those aforementioned tactics and strategies.

In what seems almost a mockery of Heaven’s Supreme Court of Justice, we are witnessing formation of Satan’s preparation for the next era of human history that will be the worst of all, according to Jesus. The reason we can know this is a force of wickedness, in my estimation, is the deceiving nature of those fomenting a spirit of dictatorial behavior.

One US representative of the Democrat Party I heard referenced on a radio program was giddy over the updated development of Biden’s Executive Order 12898. Rep Nancy Pace, in a threatening tone and with a raised voice, said that the airlines had better adhere to the new demands of the Office of Environmental Justice (OEJ), or they would “be outta here!”

But to understand the reprobate minds foisting this new control implementation, OEJ, through executive order, one has only to know their nature regarding children and abortion, then look at and listen to the wording in their declared action to save “Mother Earth.”

This wicked mindset, as we know of late, has them raging as ravening wolves in packs. They are enraged at the leaked Supreme Court decision to impose certain limitations of abortion—not end it, but limit it.

These packs of evil minions are part of Satan’s blueprint—the part that hates humanity and wants the destruction of as many of us as he and his minions can manage. They are in a rage, threatening the “conservative” Supreme Court Justices if they don’t change their minds and vote against the imposed limitations on Roe v. Wade and the abortion process. They have surrounded the Justices’ homes and have dealt other ominous threats and assaults, as we know.

They have seen to it that between 60 million and 70 million babies have been murdered in their mothers’ wombs (or even after birth). They have championed using the aborted baby parts for various things, both medical and other. This political party can only be deemed by Heaven as the party of death.

Yet here is a portion of what this same party of death says regarding their promise to save “Mother Earth” through their environmental demands.

“This is a historic moment that environmental justice communities have been working toward for decades. President Biden and Vice President Harris are, for the first time ever, bringing the voices, perspectives, and expertise of environmental justice communities into a formal advisory role at the White House,” said Cecilia Martinez, Senior Director for Environmental Justice, CEQ. “The advisory council builds off the important work of EPA’s National Environmental Justice Advisory Council and will provide input and recommendations to senior leaders across government as this administration works to clean up toxic pollution, create good-paying, union jobs in all communities, and give every child in America the chance to grow up healthy.” (“White House Announces Environmental Justice Advisory,” White House press release, March 29, 2022)

Look again at the very last line in the announcement: and give every child in America the chance to grow up healthy.”

Satan is the father of lies, the Scripture tells us. Even he can’t keep his minions from occasionally mistakenly exposing the lies with which he so masterfully deceives.

He has brought about the death of millions upon countless millions of babies in America and around the globe. The death count is still mounting. There are some with sensibilities within America who are trying to at least slow the rate of this infanticide. The demonic forces, both human and supernatural, are enraged, gnashing their teeth and howling viciously like carnivorous beasts at those who want to deprive them of their killing babies. Yet the same political party that carries out Satan’s murder of millions upon millions of little ones wants us to believe that they want to save Mother Earth so the children can live in and enjoy a clean environment.

To say that their attempts to deceive are duplicitous is one of the great understatements of all time.

But the lying treachery is exposed. The ”justice” that the evil forces of this world want–such as “environmental justice”—emanates from the one who wants to usurp God’s throne and destroy His creation called man. Supreme justice will one day soon deal with the deceivers and would-be masters who would implement their wicked, hell-spawned dictatorships through lies and deceit.

The Lord wants us to stand against evil in these closing hours of this quickly fleeting age. Christ’s call to His Bride, the Church, can’t be too far distant.

The prophet Daniel’s words might well be apropos for our present time: “But the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits” (Daniel 11:32b).

Certainly the words of the Lord Jesus are 100 percent to be taken as for these times so full of signs of His imminent call to us.

Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. (Matthew 24:44)  

Prince of the Power of the Air Preparation

Just about the time I’m over being surprised and amazed by an astounding development that points to the lateness of the prophetic hour, another emerges from the fog of the future. There are now so many such surprises that I should be ashamed to be so surprised and amazed. I’m supposed to be watching for just such things to be happening. All of us should be watching, according to our Lord’s own words.

And what I say unto one, I say unto all. Watch. (Mark 13: 37) 

We now have going at the same time “wars and rumors of war.” Think on the assault on Ukraine and the threats and fears of nuclear conflict and World War III. I just, while writing this, heard on a news program that a UK pundit said Putin could start World War III within just days. We are seeing the prolific rise of godlessness, with “evil men and seducers growing worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.” Think on the deception of the American presidential election and the now-proven stealing of votes. Think on the so-called pandemic, with many lies now being revealed–the deception that continues today. Think on the satanic attack on children, with attempted inculcation from the tender age of five years up about the most disgusting side of human sexual debauchery. Think on the apostasy with even pastors claiming to be Christians “refusing to endure sound doctrine, but having itching ears, that embrace, every wind of strange doctrine.” Think of the current pope preaching that there are many ways to God, that all religions lead to God, and even atheists will one day be in Heaven.

We are indeed seeing the Tribulation storm thundering across the prophetic horizon. My next book, TRAJECTORY: Tracking the Approaching Tribulation Stormwill point in great detail at the things we see coming at this generation in waves no previous generation has faced. This is how it must be at the end of the dispensation of Grace. God’ Word foretells these things that will culminate in the Great Tribulation and the glorious, triumphant return of Christ (Revelation 19: 11).

But preceding the Tribulation itself will be the Rapture of all true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. Again, that profound moment the Apostle Paul called “the twinkling of an eye”—the Rapture of the Church—will take place before World War III, before the Tribulation, the last seven years of horror leading to Christ’s Second Advent.

Thinking on all this, the latest of the preparation for Antichrist’s reign during those—or at least a part of those—years of horror, the Tribulation, made my watcher/discernment meter light up. The Biden administration’s skullduggery, in this latest development, is nothing less than blatant.

The occupant of the White House has, through executive order, created an agency that would do the old Soviet KGB proud.

The DGB (Disinformation Governance Board) was created and blatantly placed in order to make sure all information is administered by the US government. This was done only a day or two after Elon Musk purchased Twitter. This purchase by Musk, who believes in the First Amendment and free speech, took away–or will greatly lessen—the leftist control of everything Twitter governing board members do that deny free expression. And it will end leftist controllers having say over who is banned from the platform.

Satan was declared by God’s Word to be the prince of the power of the air. He controls the airwaves of broadcast for the most part at this moment, and that control will become hyper-ratcheted up in the coming interval leading to the Rapture. It will be total control in the Tribulation itself.

The following excerpt further frames the matters.

In his classic novel “1984,” George Orwell warned the world of the dangers of government addicted to power. One where the narrative was controlled by the state and the people were forced to bend a knee. Truth-telling became the cardinal sin of Orwell’s dystopian state, where a power hungry state reigned in on shutting down free speech and was all guided by what Orwell termed the Ministry of Truth.

A propaganda branch of the state, in his book, whose priority was to control all forms of public information where industries like journalism, entertainment and art were all controlled by Big Brother, and the state told you what the truth was actually in their mind, which was the truth accepted.

Now, the people had no say in any of it. They were forced to listen and they were forced to follow. Now, Orwell’s book was meant as a warning to the world that this kind of society could become reality under the wrong people if the wrong people were in charge.

But, it looks like the Biden administration is taking Orwell’s work not as a warning, but as their own manual. Now, yesterday, the White House announced a brand new department called the Disinformation Governance Board. I’m not kidding. A board aimed toward tackling disinformation ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. (“Kilmeade: George Orwell’s dystopian society becoming a reality with Biden’s latest action,” Brian Kilmead, Fox News staff,  April 28, 2022)

So we see yet another proof of what’s coming. The Antichrist’s control over every aspect of life on this judgment-bound planet will look much like George Orwell’s fictional dictatorship. It will no doubt be even more deadly, with people losing their heads for not denying Christ when they become believers during that horrendous time.

We can say with some degree of assurance: With Mr. Biden’s DGB, we have our own Ministry of Truth.  The slogans of Orwell’s 1984 novel are already coming in view upon the prophetic horizon with the implementation of the Biden executive order, combined with all the “wokeness” we’ve had stifling free speech.

War Is Peace, Freedom Is Slavery, and Ignorance Is Strength

The present American government leadership, from the directive bipartisan governance of the party with the primary power, has determined to block any freedom of speech Elon Musk might have planned in reversing Twitter’s dictatorial, information dominance. It is easy to see how the globalist control is on the rise. That means Antichrist is about to step upon the stage for his inglorious reign during planet earth’s last few years before Christ’s return.

You don’t want to be here during that time that will far exceed the terror of Orwell’s vision of evil. Here is how you can avoid the coming regime of death and destruction.

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9–10)

To Die Is Gain

Every Good Friday, as it is termed, my thoughts turn to my experience on April 22, 2011. That was the date of Good Friday of that year. People immediately surrounding me–those I love most dearly—might, with a roll of eyes, get tired of hearing it. Some jokingly tell me so, although I think they are glad to still have me hanging around.

Perhaps you, too, are tired of my again writing about it. Makes no difference. The experience is just too powerful to suppress. It is with me constantly. It leaps to my mind at times completely unrelated to thinking on things of the Bible–of the God I serve. I am immediately, on those occasions, drawn deeply into concentration upon what it was all about, asking myself through spiritual, inner-self search what it meant.

I’m talking about the widow-maker heart attack on that day in 2011. Each time my heart stopped, I was immediately with many young, heavenly beings–men and women who looked to be in their mid-twenties. I say “looked”—and that in itself is profound. I’ve been totally blind since around 1994 due to a retinal disease, yet when my heart stopped I saw more clearly than with 20/20 vision.

The matter is further powerful in implication because, according to medical records, I died clinically three times that day. At least I joined those young beings on three separate occasions. This, to me, has great significance, as the Lord Jesus was in the tomb three days before resurrecting to life.

The third time we were running a victory lap, and I was among them, with them looking at me with expressions of jubilation on their faces. I know now that we were running a victory lap after the race of completing work done in life–toward the throne of God. It was Hebrews chapter 12, verses 1–3.

Only my work was and is not yet done. There is more to do, and writing articles such as this one is proof that I haven’t yet completed that race all of us who belong to Christ are running.

Some–especially of the most biblically centered among my circle—are very skeptical about such…experiences. I admit to my own skepticism prior to my…experience. I’m still skeptical, I must admit, about some reports on near-death experiences. All I can truly know is my own truth–which it is God’s truth, because I lived through it.

This is not resurrection I’m reporting do have done. That glorious moment is ascribed to the Lord Jesus Christ alone. This was simply a brief glimpse into Heaven–for God’s own reasons—that awaits all who believe in their spiritual hearts that Jesus was crucified for us, was buried, and took up His life again on Resurrection Day–the third day after He said “It is finished.”

My experience, I am assured in my spirit, was given so that I might continue to spread the word about hope–particularly about the coming Rapture and the Blessed Hope, who is Jesus Christ, the Author and Finisher of our faith. He promised, “Whoever believes in me will never die.”

That is why we can agree with Paul the apostle, who tells us that “to die is gain.” Physical death instantaneously puts us into eternal life–and I can testify to that truth because I was immediately within the heavenly realm the moment my heart stopped each time.

Here are Paul’s words.

According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you. (Philippians 1:20–24)

There is great interest in the afterlifewith presentations of near-death experiences that are fodder for programs that can be considerably over-exaggerated in many instances. But there are serious studies now being done by some of the top scientists and others on the phenomenon of near-death experiences. That’s why I include the following excerpt recounting such studies.

Scientific advances in the 20th and 21st centuries have led to a major evolution in the understanding of death. At the same time, for decades, people who have survived an encounter with death have recalled unexplained lucid episodes involving heightened consciousness and awareness. These have been reported using the popular—yet scientifically ill-defined—term “near-death experiences.”

A multidisciplinary team of national and international leaders, led by Sam Parnia, MD, PhD, director of the Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Research Program at NYU Langone, have published “Guidelines and standards for the study of death and recalled experiences of death,” a multidisciplinary consensus statement and proposed future directions in the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences. This study, which examined the accumulated scientific evidence to date, represents the first-ever peer-reviewed consensus statement for the scientific study of recalled experiences surrounding death…

Among their conclusions are the following:

  • Due to advances in resuscitation and critical care medicine, many people have survived encounters with death or being near-death. These people—who are estimated to comprise hundreds of millions of people around the world based on previous population studies—have consistently described recalled experiences surrounding death, which involve a unique set of mental recollections with universal themes.
  • The recalled experiences surrounding death are not consistent with hallucinations, illusions, or psychedelic drug–induced experiences, according to several previously published studies. Instead, they follow a specific narrative arc involving a perception of (a) separation from the body with a heightened, vast sense of consciousness and recognition of death; (b) travel to a destination; (c) a meaningful and purposeful review of life, involving a critical analysis of all actions, intentions, and thoughts towards others; a perception of (d) being in a place that feels like “home”; and (e) a return back to life.
  • The experience of death culminates into previously unidentified, separate subthemes and is associated with positive long-term psychological transformation and growth. (“Recalled Experiences Surrounding Death: More Than Hallucinations?” NYU Langone News, April 12, 2022)

All of this has me thinking upon our recent celebration of Christ’s resurrection and my Good Friday experience those years ago. I sometimes think, with comforting expectation, that within one heartbeat moment I could again be running toward my Savior and God’s throne among that heavenly throng of joyous young, heavenly beings–young men and women who were gloriously handsome and beautiful. I think on how, at my advanced age and the nearness of the Rapture, my odds are greatly increased to again be in that heavenly presence, if there is such a thing as “odds” in considering heavenly matters involving life and death. In that sense, and not meaning to be morbid in saying it, I can definitely understand what Paul meant when he told us “to die is gain.”

Tribulation Population Presenting

Upon reading the words, we wonder where such people come from. Even the most virulent among the earth’s populations surely could not be so anti-God as to be so rebellious–not after having gone through such excruciating punishment in God’s call to repentance for that extended period.

And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory. And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds. (Revelation 16: 8-11)

We witness on an hour-by-hour basis governments of the world shaping in ways predicted by God’s prophetic Word for the last days of this dispensation. Although some leaders are absolute tyrants, like those who are in charge of Russia, China, North Korea, etc., many leaders, particularly those in the Western Hemisphere, believe they are working for the good of their people. This, despite the fact that they are, in some cases, following the evil philosophy of Karl Marx and other wicked people of the past.

There are some signs appearing that people, especially in America, are beginning to awaken just a bit to the evil being perpetrated, particularly upon our very youngest children. Yet there continues to be much tolerance in terms of unsavory and oppressive societal and cultural atmospherics.

Teachers at the most primary levels are teaching the insanity that involves gender redirection. (Boys can be girls, and girls can be boys if they so choose. They don’t have to be of the sex God directed). Homosexual lifestyle is lauded and propagated as preferable in many ways to heterosexuality.

The American educational system, both private and public, is largely at the heart of the problem. Teachers from kindergarten through the highest levels of academia have themselves been inculcated to the ways spawned by satanic influence. We now endure the results of that in quite disturbing ways. Some are teaching sexual activity to 5 year old’s.  Almost without exception, as a general rule, professors hold to anti-God views and teach that Christianity and biblical education are simply stories at best and farcical fantasy in the worst cases.

And that is the nucleus of the matter I wish to address here. It might go a long way toward answering the question posed above: We wonder where such people come from.

We can’t imagine a people being so rebellious and so angry that they will hide themselves in the caves of earth and shake their fists in the face of the God they know has the power and intention to have them repent or perish. Those people are today presenting themselves for all to see. Those, such as the ones presented in the following excerpt, seem to be of the mindset of those described in Revelation 16 above.

The article has salacious language, not that of the writer, but reported by her. I have, of course, kept that out of this piece. It is quite eye-opening how young adults within much of higher education are being shaped as those whom God’s Word calls earth dwellers.

A series of jokes and banners published and hung at Hamilton College recently has upset some observers who argue anti-Christian sentiments fester at the small, New York-based private liberal arts institution.

Most recently, a student satire publication called the Duel Observer published a mock article on campus newsstands during Holy Week that replaced Jesus Christ’s blood with his [word omitted] then joked “it will still give us everlasting life.”

The satire piece ends with a description of an explosion that destroys the “Rosary Club,” the name of a real student group on campus.

On Tuesday, student athletes also hung a banner (pictured) in the dining hall advertising an upcoming tennis match that used for inspiration the Last Supper mural by Leonardo da Vinci. [The mural displayed the opposing team and coach and had salacious words mocking the last supper and the opposing players.]

The Hamilton College student who provided the images to The College Fix is Devin Mendelson, 22, a senior at the school who founded the Rosary Club last November.

Mendelson said his club has upset some of his peers and campus leaders because of its strong defense of the unborn and traditional marriage. Administrators suspended his club’s email account for nearly three weeks in March, he said…

Robert Paquette, president of the Alexander Hamilton Institute, said in an interview with The College Fix that the various items Mendelson highlighted are “disturbing to say the least.”

“Never would this kind of imagery be tolerated if it were directed at Muslims, gays, transgenders, or feminists.”

Paquette said what Mendelson and his club has faced is troubling.

“This young man on campus is trying to start a Rosary Club and this has brought out the woke activists in abundance,” he said. “They have become gross and insulting, and they appear to want to defeat the young man’s purpose, and the administration does not seem to be doing much about it.”

Paquette taught history at Hamilton for almost 40 years, but quit in 2018 to work at the Hamilton Institute fulltime.

“I’d had enough with the leftward lurch of Hamilton College,” he said.

Paquette also knows what it’s like to be roasted by the Duel Observer. He provided The College Fix with an issue from 2013 in which students mocked the former professor for defending intellectual diversity. (“Ahead of Easter, students mock Jesus, Student athletes at Hamilton College also display profane mock-up of Last Supper in dining hall,”  Jennifer Kabbany – Fix editor,  College Fix, Rapture Ready News April 16, 2022)

I’m not lauding here the Catholic system; however, it is saddening and tragic to know that this sort of mocking God and His desire to see all men, women, and children come to Him in repentance is a prevalent activity among the nation’s colleges and universities. Obviously, according to prophetic Scripture, there will be those whose hearts have become so callous, so wickedly rebellious, that they can do no other than shake their fist in the face of the only person through whom they can be saved from eternity apart from their Creator.

But there is yet time before those terrible years of Tribulation begin. In this pre-Rapture time we call the Age of Grace, there is still time to repent and have the rebellious heart changed into belief that trusts in the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Here, again, is how one can avoid being a part of the Tribulation population destined for God’s judgment and wrath.

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9–10)

My Answers to Rapture Questions

 

The questions and answers that follow were part of an interview conducted by Pastor Billy Crone. My prayerful hope is that it will help believers be always ready to answer those who question why we believe Jesus will call the Church to Himself before the Tribulation begins.

1. What is the biblical basis for a Rapture?

  • Jesus’ words in John 14:1–3
  • Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians 15:51—5
  • Paul’s first letter to the Thessolonians 4: 13-18
  • 2 Thessalonians chapter 2—“Departure”
  • Revelation 3: 10

2. What do you see is the purpose of the Rapture?

  • To keep Christ’s Bride, the Church, out of the time of testing or Tribulation
  • To separate God’s prophetic programs for the Church from those for Israel.

3. How would you respond to those who say that the word “rapture” does not appear in the Bible?

Neither do the word “Trinity” or “Bible.” The evidence is clear: the doctrine of Rapture is there in the total context of a number of scriptural references.

The Greek [word for rapture] is harpazo, for “catching up” or “snatching.” Later, the Latin Vulgate put it as raptura, from which the word “rapture” comes. 

4. What are the benefits of the doctrine of imminency?

The prime benefit is that imminency should encourage all believers to always be ready for Christ’s any-moment intervention into the affairs of fallen man. It should make people want to live righteously. “Be ye always ready, for in a time ye think not, the son of man cometh”—Matthew 24:44.

5. How would you respond to those who say, “There is not one verse in the Bible that supports the pre-Trib position of the Rapture”?

I would say, “You are incorrect.” Revelation 3:10 is a promise to Church Age believers to be kept out of the Tribulation. Additionally, there are a number of verses that make the case for a pre-Trib Rapture.

The best single verse to indicate a pre-Trib Rapture is Revelation 3: 10. Second Thessalonians 2:3 is another passage that strongly indicates believers will be raptured before the Tribulation. 

6. What precisely does Paul mean when he says that “the falling away” (2:3) must come before the Tribulation?

(Note: The Greek word apostasia is used as asfestimi in this instance of “falling away.” It means a spatial departure rather than a departure from faith.) The definite article “the” denotes that this will be a definite event, an event distinct from the appearance of the Man of Sin. The Greek word for “falling away,” taken by itself, does not mean religious apostasy or defection. Neither does the word mean “to fall,” as the Greeks have another word for that. [pipto, “I fall”; TDI].

The best translation of the word is “to depart.” The Apostle Paul refers here to a definite event which he calls “the departure,” and which will occur just before the start of the Tribulation. This is the Rapture of the Church. So the word has the core meaning of “departure,” and it depends upon the context to determine whether it is used to mean physical departure or an abstract departure, such as departure from the faith.

[Translation History—The first seven English translations of apostasia all rendered the noun as either  “departure” or “departing.” They are as follows: Wycliffe Bible (1384); Tyndale Bible (1526); Coverdale Bible (1535); Cranmer Bible (1539); Breeches Bible (1576); Beza Bible (1583); Geneva Bible (1608).] 

This supports the notion that the word truly means “departure.” In fact, Jerome’s Latin translation known as the Vulgate, from around the time of AD 400, renders apostasia with the word discessio, meaning “departure.”

7. Where in the Bible do you see the Church absent from the seven-year Tribulation?

Revelation 3: 10 is part of the first three chapters of the Revelation. The Church is addressed nineteen times through chapter 3. The voice is heard saying “Come up here!” at the beginning of chapter 4. The saints of the Church Age aren’t mentioned again until Christ returns with the saints in Revelation 19:11.

8. How would you respond to those who say the seven-year Tribulation does not include a full seven years of God’s wrath?

Daniel the prophet said that from the decree going forth to rebuild the wall and the sanctuary (Temple), seventy weeks (prophetic weeks—490 years) are determined on “thy people”—Israel.

Antichrist (the “prince that shall come,” will confirm the covenant for one prophetic week (seven years) of that seventy-weeks prophecy. That last week of seven years will begin with a covenant made by Antichrist. Daniel’s prophecy tells of the peace that will destroy many—Daniel 8:25, Isaiah 28:15–18—for one week. That is, seven prophetic days (or seven years in Daniel’s 490 years prophecy) from when the command went forth to rebuild the city and sanctuary. Daniel 9: 27 indicates this sets in motion the final seven years leading to Armageddon and Christ’s return—the Tribulation era, the last three and one half of which will be “Great” Tribulation (Matthew 24:21, Jeremiah 30:7).

When this “prince” comes riding forth on the white horse offering peace (Revelation 6:1), the seals have been opened and the last seven years run their course from that point.

9. How would you respond to those who say that the pre-Trib position is unfair?

God is sovereign. He alone can determine what His program for the consummation of human history will be. He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for the sin of mankind, that anyone who believes in Him, according to John 3: 16 and Romans 10:9–10, can have eternal life.

The Rapture is part of His plan for humanity. It is up to humanity to accept His plan, not the other way around—i.e., God adjusting to fit what mankind might consider “fair.”

Also, Romans chapter 1 says that all have been given light for achieving escape from God’s judgment. They are “without excuse.”

10. How would you respond to those who say that the pre-Trib position encourages laziness?

Everyone I know who truly studies God’s Word and believes the pre-Trib view it presents are busy carrying out the Great Commission and trying to live a life worthy of being Christ’s followers. The doctrine of imminency should make Christians aware of the times and have them looking for their Lord’s sudden appearance (Titus 2: 13). 

I say without reservation that the pre-Trib view of the Rapture makes the true student of Bible prophecy much more aware of Christ’s coming again and what that entails. That creates enthusiasm to hear the words “Well done, good, faithful servant” from Jesus when He appears.

11. How would you respond to those who say the pre-Trib position is teaching a “secret” Rapture?

I don’t know why they call it a “secret.” Paul was very plain and thorough in showing this “mystery.” Jesus first gave it as recorded in John 14:1–3. This is the “mystery” Paul made clear. It’s right there in the Scripture. It’s no secret.

It will be a total shock and surprise to those who don’t know Christ, the Bible says. It will come as a “thief in the night” to the lost. Unfortunately, it will come as a shock to most Christians, too. But, they are going to Christ when He calls anyway.

Also, Jesus, in the “days of Noah, days of Lot” passages of Matthew 24:36–42 and Luke 17:26–30, which is a Rapture reference, says it will be a time when He is “revealed.” This is not a secret coming. Everyone will know something major has just occurred.

12. How would you respond to those who say that the pre-Trib position is a “recent” teaching and therefore must be rejected?

Again, I go back to the Apostle Paul, who plainly taught it as recorded in His second letter to the Thessalonians (chapter 2). Also, a number of the early church fathers made reference to their belief in a pre-Trib view. 

13. How would you respond to those who say that John Darby is the one who came up with the pre-Trib Rapture?

Jesus came up with it. Paul revealed the mystery the disciples didn’t know at the time. John Darby turned it into a systematic presentation/study.

14. How would you respond to those who say that John Darby received the idea of a pre-Trib Rapture from Margaret McDonald?

According to the history of the matter, letters show that Darby wrote about the Rapture in 1827 while recovering from a riding accident, and that Margaret McDonald’s supposed visions weren’t given until 1830.

15. How would you respond to those who say the Church is in Matthew 24?

I would say that Jesus is talking about the Rapture, which involves the Church, in Matthew 24:36–42. That is the “days of Noah, days of Lot” prophecy.

He talks, in that Olivet Discourse chapter, about His coming again at “an hour ye think not.” Both of these prophecies have to, in my view, be addressed to the Church.

The Lord could not have been talking about His coming at a business-as-usual time like is indicated in the “days of Noah and Lot” prophecy when addressing the Second Advent. As much as three-fourths of the earth’s population will have died during the previous seven years of that period. It will not be business as usual during the Tribulation.

Tribulation saints will be able to count down to the exact time the Lord is returning, [thus] Jesus’ words about “in a time you think not” (Matthew 24:44). 

16. What are your biggest issues with—and why do you disagree with—the post-Trib position?

Because it’s not in the Bible. The pre-Trib position is taught by Paul and makes the best total sense of the whole matter. It is the position that brings everything into logical perspective.

The best argument against it is that the Bible plainly presents a Millennial Reign of Christ. It also plainly teaches that flesh and blood must be in that kingdom to procreate, because there will be peoples as ubiquitous as “the sands of the sea.”

If all believers are lifted to be with Christ at the end of the Tribulation, they are no longer flesh and blood, but flesh and bone. They are in their translated bodies like Jesus. They are perfect, and at any rate, do not procreate in Heaven, according to Jesus’ own words on marriage and the activity of Heaven’s citizenry.

All left on earth when Christ returns, if all believers were raptured at the end of that era, would be lost, thus would be cast into “outer darkness” at the sheep/goats judgment of Matthew 25.

No one would be left to populate the earth. Jesus says there will be flesh-and-blood people left after the sheep/goats judgment to repopulate the millennial earth.

17. What are your biggest issues with—and why do you disagree with—the pre-Wrath position?

Because I believe the word of God puts forth that not just the last three and one-half years, but the full seven years of the Tribulation, Daniel’s Seventieth Week, is the wrath of God upon the rebels of planet earth.

Daniel 9:26–27 presents that with the confirming of the covenant by the prince that shall come. The last seven years will from that point on be an era that will punish the anti-God masses. It says of Antichrist and those final years, “and for the overspreading of abominations, he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.”

Revelation chapter 6 presents Antichrist as coming on the scene after the opening of the first seal. He confirms the covenant God says is made with “death and hell.” it is this agreement with Antichrist to be the world’s savior that invokes the wrath of God. It occurs at the very beginning of the seven years—Daniel’s Seventieth Week.

18. What are your biggest issues with—and why do you disagree with—the mid-Trib position?

Because, with the opening of the first seal, the wrath of God begins with the confirming of the covenant of false peace at the very beginning of Daniel’s Seventieth Week, as explained above. Jesus promised that believers (His Church) will be kept out of the very time of that era of God’s wrath (Revelation 3:10).

Believers of the Church Age cannot go through even one hour of that terrible time.

19. What are your biggest issues with—and why do you disagree with—a partial-Rapture position?

My primary reason is that the Apostle Paul, in the 1 Corinthians and 1 Thessalonian prophecies of the Rapture, uses the word “all.” He uses in conjunction the pronoun “we” (meaning all believers in Christ). He didn’t say “some,” He said “all.” He says we shall “all be changed.” There is no room in that prophecy for some to go and some to be left behind when it comes to born-again believers.

20. What kind of a response have you received and/or encountered with those who disagree with the pre-Trib position?

I receive weekly very harsh words, some even accusing me of leading people to Hell. They most always say to begin with that they once believed in the pre-Trib view but have, after reading what the Bible says, now believe in another view.

They also accuse us who teach the pre-Trib view as causing people to not recognize Antichrist when he comes on the scene.

Most of the email I get from these are angry, but they start off asking questions. As soon as I respond to their questions, they begin telling me that I am wrong—and are quite angry with their words.

21. What would you encourage those who disagree with the pre-Trib position to do differently in how they handle the varying positions on the Rapture?

I would encourage them to be more civil in their opposition. Most don’t back up their claims with relevant passages.

I would encourage them to study and pray earnestly over the Scriptures on the matter and stop reading books only by those who are anti-Rapture writers.

These always want to debate. I would advise them to stop seeking to debate those of us who know the pre-Trib view to be truth from God’s Word, and instead just teach their views, if they are that convicted.

I no longer debate, but teach, the pre-Trib view to those who truly want to know what the Scriptures say about the Rapture.

Chinese Challenge and Prophetic Progression     

China, to my way of analysis, is shaping to become the entity prophetically designated the king of the kings of the east.

The leadership of the CCP hasn’t been asleep while the Biden Administration has bumbled along in some instances and planned badly in others. Or, perhaps as some might put it, it is all a disguised blueprint which the so-called new world order has concocted. I.e., the globalists are pulling strings of this president like those strings many generations ago saw in watching Howdy Doody go through his antics. Only we can’t see the strings. But the antics are certainly manifesting while this administration dances to the globalists’ tune.

Again, the Chinese CCP schemers haven’t been oblivious to the Biden bumbling –or whatsoever is at the heart of the apparent downward spiral.

If the one-world crowd expects to outwit the CCP in their plans to dominate their part of the planet, and then expand everywhere else, they had better hurry and implement their brilliant blueprint to save the earth.

The Chinese communists are, themselves, pulling the puppet strings, in consort with Vladimir Putin. Things aren’t looking so good, for example, in the matter of the globalists’ plans to continue to rule the world of finance. The communist cabal that is comprised of the old Soviet oligarchs and the more modernistic and inscrutable Chinese monetary masters seem to be outwitting those of the west who want to continue to rule the fiscal world through the petrodollar.

The Chinese, long known for their patience in their movement toward conquering the world, are seeing weakness they apparently can’t resist. That is, weakness in an America under Mr. Biden, whose government is seen dancing around about like that old Howdy Doody puppet of all those years ago.

The CCP has made its own self-perceived strength felt in letting it be known its intentions with regard to Taiwan.

It has shown its contempt for American power or lack thereof, by issuing a direct order in the form of a threat. The following news excerpt will perhaps encapsulate that Sino contempt for apparent U.S. haplessness.

BEIJING (Reuters) -China warned on Thursday it would take strong measures if U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan and said such a visit would severely impact Chinese-U.S. relations, following media reports she would go next week.

China considers democratically ruled Taiwan its own territory and the subject is a constant source of friction between Beijing and Washington, especially given strong U.S. military and political support for the island.

The possible visit has not been confirmed by Pelosi’s office or Taiwan’s government, but some Japanese and Taiwanese media reported it would take place after she visits Japan this weekend…

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Fijian told reporters that Beijing firmly opposed all forms of official interactions between the United States and Taiwan, and Washington should cancel the trip.

“If the United States insists on having its own way, China will take strong measures in response to defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity. All possible consequences that arise from this will completely be borne by the U.S. side,” he added, without giving details.

Since this report, Speaker Pelosi has suddenly come down with COVID, or something other, it is speculated. The trip is off, and the report is that she is ill and can’t make it.

Perhaps she was at the white tie Gridiron Dinner in Washington D.C., the other day. That was apparently a COVID spreader, as many reportedly came down with COVID following the get-together. At any rate, following the Chinese directive the trip was called off.

My own postulation continues to be that if China is that future king of the kings of the east (Revelation chapters 9 and 16,) they will soon launch an assault on their Taiwanese neighbor. –Thus, due to the opportunity that has arisen because of America’s weakness. If they want to launch such an assault, they wouldn’t want the complication of having a U.S. official of such status in the way of the military power that would be necessary to do the job on Taiwan like Mr. Putin is having such a time doing on Ukraine. The warning against Ms. Pelosi making the trip thus has been issued.

If China is the leader of that massive force from east of the Euphrates, they will –as I have expressed before— have to bring within their hegemony all of the Far East, including Japan, Taiwan and the like which are tied to the western powers.

While we watch all of the power spheres shaping for the fulfillment of Bible prophecy, believers should be alerted that the time of Christ’s Call to the Church is almost certainly near indeed. Pastors across the nation and world should be issuing such alerts. We are not to look for the kings of the east to fulfill their dastardly role. We should be looking for the King of all kings.

“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.” (Titus 2: 13)
