Waiting for harpazo

Posted in For God with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 13, 2018 by cavalier973

The next event in God’s prophetic calendar is, I believe, the removal of His people, the Church, from the world. This event is known by most as “The Rapture”.

I recommend listening to the teachings of Chuck Missler, whose ministry is called Koinonia House. You can find recordings of his lectures on YouTube and Soundcloud, but I recommend purchasing them and sharing them with friends and family, if you are able. It would probably be best to begin with his lectures on the Book of Revelation, then move to Daniel, then Ezekiel.

After the rapture, expect to see the revealing of the PseudoChrist, or the Gog-Magog invasion of Israel next (perhaps both at the same time). As an aside, it is fascinating to me that the Muslim view of the End Times is a mirror image of what the Bible teaches. Here is a sermon by John Macarthur discussing Muslim End Times.  Basically, Muslims will see the PseudoChrist (Antichrist) as the real Servant of God. The “Jesus” that they claim walked the earth 2000 years ago, but that was not crucified or resurrected, will return to explain that the Christians were worshipping a false Jesus. This false Jesus will return to earth, and will be destroyed by the Muslim PseudoChrist.

In any case, expect a combining of Islam and Christianity, led by the Church in Rome, after the Harpazo of the true church.

The Gog-Magog invasion also happens soon after the Harpazo, in which the invaders are destroyed. See Ezekiel, chapters 38 and 39 for a description of this event, and the aftermath. The reader can infer that a nuclear exchange is described, based on the actions of the survivors. They wait seven months before cleaning up the destruction, and hire specialists to do so. People who aren’t specialists, when they see human bones, won’t try to bury them, but will rather put up a sign, so the specialists can come along later and deal with them.

It is written in Revelation that, at one point, the pain of God’s judgements will be so great, that men will seek death, and not find it. It may be that God is simply refusing to allow them to die, but I think it is also possible that some of the technology being developed today will account for this phenomenon. The combination of bionic implants and A.I. could be promoted as a way to have “eternal life”, but those that get the implants may find that they don’t have the software updates to override the “no death” option.

The practical results of Marriage redefinition

Posted in For God with tags , , , , , on September 9, 2017 by cavalier973

So many here in the United States enthusiastically supported the Supreme Court’s decision to “legalize” so-called “marriage equality”. They either did not expect or did not care that legally changing the definition of marriage would result in social upheaval. Here is what is going on in Great Britain following their own rejection of definitional marriage.

I imagine that persecuting faithful Christians, Jews, and Muslims is a feature, not a bug, to those who want to impose their version of Newspeak with regard to marriage and sexuality. I even expect, eventually, that laws will be passed to seize the children of religious people, to “protect” the children from their parent’s “bigotry”.

My message to those proponents of marriage redefinition (and gender redefinition, etc.): you will win on this issue, in the short term. Longer term, though, will see your devilry utterly crushed. Not a threat, not a promise, just an observation. Your only hope is to repent of your unbelief, and call on the name of Jesus Christ. His sacrificial death on the cross paid for your sin–and sins–and you do not have to experience God’s holy wrath. I don’t think you have much time, either. Soon, the Church will be gone, and your slim hope for salvation will most likely be through martyrdom.

I’ve been listening to Chuck Missler’s series on the Book of Revelation, and it’s been quite encouraging. I’m not sure I agree with everything he says, but his lectures line up with my own understanding of Scripture, and so I am enjoying them.

The Manchester bomber’s own mosque contacted British authorities, warning about his possible involvement in terrorism. The British will arrest you if you speak out about homosexuality, though–if you’re doing it from a Christian perspective, that is.

Another Congressional Democrat-hired IT worker flees to Pakistan. She made over six figures as an employee of her husband, who for some reason was hired to handle the Information Technology services for several Democrat congresspersons. There is an investigation into whether the IT services company mishandled data and information.

The earth has seen a significant increase in vegetation, most likely due to an increase in plant food. This stunning finding has scientists baffled. “More plant food means more plants?” ~ a famous scientist. Crazy, crazy times that we live in.

This is a discussion about the effect CO2 on the growth of plants, focusing on “food plants.” It is extremely interesting. It points out the possibility that increased Carbon Dioxide plus higher temperatures means much higher amounts of food can be grown.

Trump thinks that throwing government money at health care will alleviate the problems. Thinking like this is why I did not vote for him.

On a related note, some guy on Twitter was spouting nonsense that a Single Payer System (i.e., Government pays for all medical services) would reduce the national spending on “health care” (medical services). As if the government ever spent sensibly when making a purchase. Think “$500 hammers”.

One policeman killed and two wounded in an attack in Paris. The shooter was reported to have arrived by train from Belgium. There is an election on Sunday in France, which is closely contested, according to some reports. Update: Two policemen are now dead from the shooting.

♣ The FBI is investigating to determine which CIA traitor gave the most recent batch of intelligence leaks to WikiLeaks.

Georgia Gwinnett College says that the Gospel is “Fightin’ Words“, and won’t allow it. Eventually, the First Amendment, which supposedly prevents the FedGov from interfering in religious worship, will be determined by the Supreme Court to actually mean that people can’t be Christians.

Not many people are filing unemployment claims right now. The rate is, in fact, at a 17 year low.
