If you′ve just tuned in, you are listening to a special WORLD NEWS BROADCAST. We are recaping the major past events from Israel′s rebirth through the tribulation and destruction of the world during the Battle of Armageddon.
It is written: (1 Cor 15:51,52)‐BEHOLD, I SHEW YOU A MYSTERY; WE SHALL NOT ALL SLEEP, BUT WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED,
IN A MOMENT, IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE, AT THE LAST TRUMP: (The last trump is not the 7th trumpet of the Revelation as some believe. It is
the second silver trumpet of Numbers chapter 10:2. The first trumpet was for the calling of the assembly, the second was the moving out of the people).
FOR THE TRUMPET (the first one) SHALL SOUND, AND THE DEAD SHALL BE RAISED INCORRUPTIBLE,
AND WE SHALL BE CHANGED.
1 Thes 4:16‐17‐FOR THE LORD HIMSELF SHALL DESCEND FROM HEAVEN WITH A SHOUT, WITH THE VOICE OF THE ARCHANGEL, AND WITH THE TRUMP OF GOD: AND THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST (the first trump): THEN WE WHICH ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN SHALL BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM IN THE CLOUDS, TO MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR (the second trump): AND SO SHALL WE EVER BE WITH THE LORD.
1 COR 15:53‐55‐FOR THIS CORRUPTIBLE MUST PUT ON INCORRUPTION, AND THIS MORTAL MUST PUT ON IMMORTALITY.
SO WHEN THIS CORRUPTIBLE SHALL HAVE PUT ON INCORRUPTION, AND THIS MORTAL SHALL HAVE PUT ON IMMORTALITY, THEN SHALL BE BROUGHT TO PASS THE SAYING THAT IS WRITTEN, DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP IN VICTORY.
O DEATH, WHERE IS THY STING? O GRAVE, WHERE IS THY VICTORY?
As previously said: the rapture (the biblical terms are “caught up” or “
translation”) was a term used to describe the removal from the earth of
all living people that were born again as evidenced by their trust in God, faith, love, fruits, and obedience to God′s Word.
First, the dead in Christ arose, then they which had been watching and waiting and were ready were taken.
The Revelation had also revealed that those that were caught up (US) were before the throne of God not long after in Rev 5:9. They would witness the seals being opened including the antichrist coming forth in seal one.
It was such a horrifying thing that the people of the world before the rapture and tribulation had a chance
to follow Jesus and escape, but they choose to believe the lies in their thoughts from the devil rather than
God′s Word. They loved this present world. Despite the deceitful and lukewarm teaching of the Gospel by
many before the rapture, many people did have a bible, but it usually sat in a person′s residence collecting
dust. Thus the people were without excuse.
The Scriptures clearly revealed that the number of people that will be raptured will be extremely small.
As previously alluded to: Horror struck both ministers and lay people alike that understood what the rapture was, but were left behind.
Many believed in God but would not allow (God′s Word) reign over them.
So many had been told all they had to do was say a sinner′s prayer.
So many were told all they had to do was to believe on Christ.
Others believed that belonging to a Christian church was all they needed to do to be saved.
But they were not willing to read and submit to God′s Word. They were not willing to repent, and follow Jesus. They did not understand they must be concerted. They must be born again. They need to be transformed.
Now, all those left behind would have to face the horrifying and dreadful tribulation.
You might wonder, Why is this broadcast spending so much time speaking about the rapture. It is because when the rapture came, nearly everyone was left behind.
Someone had said they believed the Bible gave a number of the resurrected saints from the time of Christ
up to AND including the Rapture. In other words the number included the dead in Christ AND the raptured saints combined.
That number was 10 million plus thousands and thousands. However, few would believe this number as it was far, far too low.
During this brief span of time several events took place. This included the antichrist coming forth and establishing himself in preparation for confirming a covenant with Israel and others.
✱Those that were left behind and had recognized what had happened were very upset with God. The seemingly loving spirit they had,
now showed itself to be something quite the opposite. Many were terrified. Some had no knowledge of what was about to happen,
while some others had only a limited knowledge, but what they knew was very frightening. Some had been taught so inadequately,
they believed the first part of the Tribulation was not going to be so bad.
Undoubtedly, every one of them, at this time, wished they had a complete breakdown of what was to come and how to survive, such as you may be reading or hearing right now.
Some people, at the last moment, had recognized they were not ready, while others believed they were. God′s Word had warned all people that the gate to heaven is strait and the way is narrow, and only a few find it. But most churches, in that latter day generation before the Rapture came, were teaching a very wide gate and a very broad way to enter heaven, of which many followed. The results were many were left behind. They never understood Ps 50:5‐GATHER MY SAINTS TOGETHER UNTO ME; THOSE THAT HAVE MADE A COVENANT WITH ME BY SACRIFICE. Some once sang a song, “I Surrender All,” but they never did.
✱The many so‐called Christians that said a sinner′s prayer, but did not repent
or do the will of God, or did not follow Jesus as the Bible told them to, now had to face the next few years, which
were the worst years this world had ever seen. Many were soon killed, as a result of World War 3, which was fast
approaching. Few suspected that World War 3 would really happen.
Those that were killed had no chance to repent. Those that survived had a chance to repent later on, but most were brutally tortured and then beheaded.
✱Many people gave very little thought that an event called the Rapture had even happened.
After all, the number that had been taken was extremely small, and most did not believe in such a thing as the Rapture. Most
went about life as usual.
The Catholics were all here, except a very few that had repented and overcome. The Pope was still here. They had little understanding of what the Rapture even was.
Most so‐called Christians were all here. The followers of Islam were still here.
Atheists and agnostics, the entire congregations of most churches, and their ministers, the followers of cults and other religions, and all lukewarm Christians, along with all unbelievers were still here.
Only the few that truly repented, feared God, and overcame the schemes and devices of the devil, only those that had heard, or immersed themselves in God′s Word and obeyed it, which brought forth good fruit, and followed Jesus, suffering persecutions along the way—these are the few that were raptured. The excuse‐makers that never seemed to have much time to follow Jesus were also left behind.
✱The Roman Catholic Church continued to grow and prosper after the Rapture. None of its followers were raptured. Its headquarters was located in a small, independent area of Rome called the Vatican.
✱Immediately following the Rapture, sin began to increase even more than it had previously as
birth pangs of a woman.
All over the world, hate increased.
Every evil imaginable appeared to get worse.
Riots, vandalism, drugs, stealing, fights, murders and lawlessness began to skyrocket. It started progressing beyond anything the earth had ever seen since the flood or since the time of Sodom and Gomorrah. Buildings were looted and burned. Vehicles were attacked and destroyed. People were attacked and beaten, for no reason other than for fun.
Even the police and those in authority became more violent and hostile.
There were now no saved people left on planet earth. The salt of the earth was gone.
Hatred between various groups increased and became out of control.
Hatred between wives and husbands, between children and their parents, and between relatives grew more intense.
Because sin (or iniquity, or wickedness) abounded, the love of many waxed cold.
