“And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
- Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet,
- [You] Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
Interestingly, an ancient city that has been submerged under the Euphrates River has re-emerged and is being excavated by archeologists. Who knows what is coming up to the light of day.
Iraq…authorities drained part of the Mosul Dam reservoir in the country’s Kurdistan region this January…Out of that drained area, an ancient city emerged—what they believe to have been a major city in the Mittani Empire…built 3,400 years ago.
And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.
Like Apollo, these four angels would be ringleaders in the original fallen angels’ hybridization warfare strategy.
“Samjaza, their leader, Araklba, Rameel, Kokablel, Tamlel, Ramlel, Danel, Ezeqeel, Baraqijal, 8 Asael, Armaros, Batarel, Ananel, Zaqiel, Samsapeel, Satarel, Turel, Jomjael, Sariel. These are their chiefs…” Enoch 6
They are called back by human collaborators in the misguided belief that they can control the super warriors they create.
Somebody gets it.
THE BOYS [on Amazon Prime Video] is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as Gods, abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about “The Seven,” [quickly reduced to Four] and their formidable Vought backing.
And the number of the army of the horsemen were 200,000,000 [2 hundred million] and I [personally] heard the number of them [giving the greatest credibility possible to this incredible number.]
No human army has ever reached this size. Currently the largest single army is the Chinese, at 2 million soldiers. Even if all the soldiers of the largest armies in the world were allied together the number of soldiers would not exceed 12 million. We must be looking at another genetically altered weaponized animal.
There are an estimated 7 billion [7,000,000,000] rats in the world. That’s almost 1 rat for every human.Chicago has long been ranked as the worst city in…the world – for rats…
Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York rank high on the “rattiest cities” list. Elsewhere, London, England, and Paris, France, suffer their own infestations. China also struggles, with an estimated 2 billion rats in the country, most of them congregated in its major cities…
a single pair of rats could end up producing half a billion rats in just 3 years!
is a pest and is dangerous to humans in several ways. First, these animals are severely destructive to crops, farms, and fruit trees. Not only do they feed on these but they tend to destroy what they are unable to consume. By urinating and defecating on remains of their meals, they ruin grain, cereals, and other food sources. This species is famous for its role in spreading the bubonic plague (Yersinia pestis) that took millions of lives in the middle ages. The fleas that live on these rats carry a number of diseases that can seriously harm humans, livestock, and other animals.
“And thus I saw the horses in the vision [rats], and them that sat on them [fleas], having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions;
The rat was known to his audience when John described the vision of these animals, so his failure to identify the common black rat as such indicates that he is describing a similar, but different, animal.
The black rat originated in India and Southeast Asia, and spread to the Near East and Egypt, and then throughout the Roman Empire, reaching Great Britain as early as the 1st century AD. Europeans subsequently spread it throughout the world.
“and out of their mouths [the warriors riding the “horses”] issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed…”
Bubonic plague deaths exceeded 25 million people during the fourteenth century. This was about two-thirds of the population in Europe at the time. Rats traveled on ships and brought fleas and plague with them…
Humans who are bitten by the fleas then can come down with plague. It’s an example of a disease that can spread between animals and people (a zoonotic disease).
“by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.”
There are actually about 500 species of acid-shooting beetles, found on every continent except Antarctica…
formic acid…is what gives fire ants their name. A few species, though, spray acid rather than stinging…
Some North American termites have a “gun” on their heads. This hornlike projection, called a fontanellar gun…
Whip scorpions…have claws like scorpions, but they lack a stinging tail or venomous fangs. Instead, spray an acid…from two “turrets” on the abdomen. They use the whip-like tail to direct the spray… could damage your eyes…
The Devil Rider Stick Insect…can propel chemical compounds called terpenes from glands on…its back…The chemical produces an intense burning sensation when it encounters a predator’s eyes or mouth…
“And the rest of the men which were not killed by these [two] plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
This comment establishes beyond doubt that these hybridized creatures are intentional collaborations with hyper dimensional beings.
Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.” (Revelation 9)
A 1947 novel by the French philosopher Albert Camushas racked up sales since the Covid-19 pandemic engulfed our lives earlier this year.
The Plague is a fictional account of the advent of the plague in…Algeria’s second-largest city. We’re not given a precise year, but the city is suddenly hammered…
What Camus is trying to do, philosophically as well as narratively, is convey both his experience of living under the plague, namely the occupation of France by the Germans, but also say something about the importance of moderation, which for him is really the most courageous of virtues. And what you find in The Plague are the ways in which…characters join forces over the course of the plague in Oran. What they achieve as a group, as opposed to individuals pursuing their individual interests, is quite extraordinary. And that’s really the whole point.
In other words, what we find at moments of crisis is that people have to resist what’s taking place, and that initial step toward resistance, toward saying “No, this cannot be tolerated,” that’s when you look around and discover that other people are doing the very same thing. And that’s where the meaning is to be found…
this wonderfully compelling and complex template, of the ways in which people respond to governments or forces that pose a threat to their dignity and to their integrity as human beings…
There’s a lot of symbolism in The Plague, but one thing it definitely symbolizes is the absurdity of life. The plague is absurd in the sense that it just happens. We’re living our lives the way we always live our lives and it simply arrives. And there’s no real explanation for it. It can’t be justified. It can’t be explained.
In the same way, we find ourselves hurled into this existence that doesn’t have any clear purpose and it will end and the question is, how do we respond to that fact? And all the characters in The Plague face this conflict we all have to face between our individual happiness and our obligations to other people. And all of the characters are defined by what they do in this moment of choice.
And all humanity is given a choice.
“And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea [of outer space], and his left foot on the earth, And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth:
and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
Seven times “Woe” back at you! “And the LORD said…whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold.” (Genesis 4:15)
And I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
Because their response is not going to happen. Unlike the LORD’s announcement.
“And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven. And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: But
in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth…and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.” (Revelation 10)
So there is still time passing between the 6th trumpet and the last trump. What happens during that time is described in chapter 11:1-13.
An account of hyper dimensionality is hard to fit into a time frame. Flashbacks and recapitulation are literary devices that can help accommodate this.
Flashback is a device that moves an audience from the present moment in a chronological narrative to a scene in the past. Often, flashbacks are abrupt interjections that further explain a story or character with background information and memories.
We find this abrupt interjection transitioning between Revelation’s chapters 11 and 12.
And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.” (Revelation 11:14-15)
This word “quickly” is the Greek “tachu” from which we get tacho-meter or tachycardia. It doesn’t mean immediately following the 6th trumpet blast, but that when it happens, it happens so rapidly there is no time to think or plan what to do. It’s as if you’re driving in the Daytona Speedway when a crash occurs right in front of you. What’s your way of escape?
After Revelation 11’s bullet points on the seven trumpets, Revelation 12 clearly interrupts the forward momentum with a recapitulation of the history of Lucifer’s war against mankind from Eve onward.
There is a reason it is placed here. To highlight, to bring to our awareness, to hammer home the vital importance of this ongoing situation.
- “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
- And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” (Revelation 12:1-3)
Not only time, but the hyper dimensional spirit world is hard to imagine. It can’t be fully perceived with humanity’s limited four dimensional access. The closest we can come to understanding it is comparing it to a two-dimensional drawing of a three-dimensional object.
“a door [portal] was opened in heaven…And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne…
- in the midst of the throne,
- AND round about the throne, were four beasts…
The human who was given a glimpse and lived to tell about it gives us some groundwork to understand the most famous biblical beast.
And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within:” (Revelation 4:1-8)
The term “beast” in the Bible is used to reference a living being of unspecified species.
“Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so…and God saw that it was good.” (Genesis 1:24-25)
As long as reproduction continued “after his kind”, things were good. The opposite of “after his kind” is “corrupted” or hybridized. The Bible makes it crystal clear that changes in the Creator’s design is an extremely bad thing.
“the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose…There were giants in the earth in those days.” (Genesis 6:2-4)
“Noah was…perfect in his generations…[but in contrast] all [the kinds of] flesh had corrupted his way / identity upon the earth…And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.“(Genesis 6:7-13,19)
Humans who want to expand their potential beyond the limitations imposed on our corporeal condition must connect to the spirit dimension in some way. God has offered the opportunity to return to the state of hyperdimensional spirit power by merging our identity with his, which is wholly righteous. The only alternative is instead merging one’s identity with ungodly hyperdimensional beings, who are unrighteous.
These are the fallen angels, described in glimpses of heavenly beings as being “like” the cattle, fowl, wild beasts on earth.
“And all the sons of men departed from the ways of the Lord in those days as they multiplied upon the face of the earth with sons and daughters,
- and they taught one another their evil practices
- and they continued sinning against the Lord.
- And every man made unto himself a god [idol / a battery of stored hyper dimensional power]
- and they robbed and plundered every man his neighbor as well as his relative,
- and they corrupted the earth [creating hybrids],
- and the earth was filled with violence [from the hybrids.]
- And their judges and rulers / in these ancient times the gods went to the daughters of men and took their wives by force from their husbands according to their choice
- and the sons of men in those days took from the cattle of the earth, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air, and taught the mixture of animals of one species with the other…
- God saw the whole earth and it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted its ways upon earth, all men and all animals…And all men who walked in the ways of the Lord, died in those days…[But] Noah found grace in the sight of the Lord, and the Lord chose him and his children to raise up seed from them upon the face of the whole earth.” (Jasher 4:16-21)
Histories, legends, mythologies, and religions throughout the world validate the biblical account that evil spirits continued to infect humanity’s ways – intents of the heart and genome – after the Flood of Noah wiped out the hybrid offspring of the fallen angels. Mesoamerican legends are just one example of the world-wide phenomenon.
Quetzalcoatl (pronounced Ket-zal-ko’-wat) was the Aztec version of the Feathered Serpent god that permeated Mesoamerican mythologies…Quetzalcoatl was regarded as the god of wind / spirit, patron of priests, and inventor of calendars and books. He was also occasionally used as a symbol of death and resurrection…
Quetzalcoatl shared his namesake with the feathered serpent deities of the K’iche’ Maya and the Yucatec Maya. The name of the K’iche’ Maya deity Q’uq’umatz meant “Quetzal Serpent” while the Yucatec Maya god Kukulkan translated to the less specific “Feathered Serpent.”…
We get that. Lucifer, right?
Quetzalcoatl was the third son of the dual creator god Ometeotl.
This makes him equivalent to Apollo, the third generation from Lucifer. Granted there is no exact word-for-word match between mythologies, we have to take what we can get from general concepts.
Quetzalcoatl / Seed of the Serpent Apollo worked in opposition to his brother Tezcatlipoca / Human Son of God Seed of the Woman. This rivalry was a recurring theme in Aztec mythology…
Each bout of fighting brought one of the four epochs of Aztec history to an end [equivalent to the days of creation], ultimately ending with Tezcatlipoca in control of the fifth (and current) age. During this time, it was conceivable that Quetzalcoatl could defeat his brother once more and regain power…
According to legend, the Aztec people initially only had access to roots and wild game.
This is consistent with the immediate post-Flood ice age.
“as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man…
- they married wives…
- and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown….
- God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them;
- I will destroy them with the earth…”(Luke 17, Genesis 6)
Follow the pattern. Hybrid beings appearing at the end of the world as in the days of Noah is not a correlation, a chance match. It is a causation.
The end of the world comes about – again – because of the re-emergence of the violent hybrids whose conception by the Adversary was specifically strategized for that very purpose. See the post Seed of the Serpent for more detail.
“And the fourth [last] kingdom shall be strong as iron…And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay,
- THEY shall mingle themselves with the seed of men:
- but THEY shall not cleave one to another…” (Daniel 2:40-43)
Obviously THEY are something other than human since they are mingling themselves with humans. They are the old gods, version 2.0 aliens, who claim to have created mankind and have responded to the call to return, to offer further evolution of the human species through hybridization.
During our era’s Renaissance / Rebirth / New Birth the Greek demigods like Prometheus, Atlas, Heracles / Hercules were hailed as heroes and benefactors who improved mankind’s quality of life by bringing high technology and civilization to barbarians. As detailed in the post The Seed of the Serpent, they were actually evil beings whose purpose was to destroy humanity through war and violence with high tech weaponry and creatures like centaurs and dinosaurs. Follow the link for a non-faith-based objective presentation of the evidence that dinosaurs and humans did in fact co-exist.
Think about it for two seconds. Evolution is Survival of the Fittest, right? So what happens to humanity 1.0? Wiped out by humanity 2.0, right? Any claim to evolve the human species means the existing species gets wiped out.
And the process of the Survival of Fittest is not pretty.
In interview footage of the breeder, we see him mention “ligers” — a tiger-lion hybrid that was bred by him. A liger is a result of breeding a male lion with a tigress…
There are very few ligers in existence…due to congenital defects. When [a lion and tiger are] forced together, the offspring can have multiple health and genetic issues due to their parentage. Ligers have the potential to suffer from gigantism, often leading to organ failure and other health concerns. [Emphasis added.]
Gigantism can occur because male lions have a growth gene that enables their cubs to be bigger…When a male lion breeds with a female tiger, her genes do not know how to stop the growth of the cubs…the offspring… continue growing. This is also harmful to the female tiger who carries the liger cubs, putting her life in danger as well.
Many animal rights organizations…submitted a petition for rulemaking to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) detailing how tiger/lion hybrids are bred to suffer “for an exhibitor’s quick buck.” They asked the USDA to “take proactive steps to curtail the practice by some licensees who purposefully breed tigers and other big cats for deleterious genetic mutations and to create interspecies hybrids.”
We can deduce from this that the biblically historical account of gigantism resulting from crossbreeding hyper dimensional sons of god with four dimensional women is accurate. Archeological and paleontological findings provide far more supporting evidence for the existence of giants than it does for evolution.
We can also deduce that, due to the loss of a stable and completely matched up genome, there were also genetic aberrations such as metabolic disorders requiring freshly obtained blood products and active hormones. It stands to reason that this led to a permanent state of war (sanitized and repackaged today as evolution) where the strong preyed on the weak. The massive amounts of nutrition required to support the giants resulted in a feeding frenzy causing widespread miserable death of humans by famine and being hunted down and eaten alive.
Cyclopia as described in Homer’s Odyssey is a known fetal development defect. In India, humans and animals with such birth defects are believed to have come from the gods and are worshipped as such.
Human blood sacrifices to the sons of the gods, even providing living heart transplants to replace failing hearts in perpetually growing giants, continued to be practiced after the hybrid gods were no longer present on earth.
Why would that be?
Continued worship of the spirits of the hybrids allies the worshippers with the spirits and not only pledges support for, but creates the opportunity for, their return in physical form.
- From the days of the slaughter and destruction and death ⌈of the giants⌉, from the souls of whose flesh the spirits, having gone forth, shall destroy without incurring judgement–
- thus shall they destroy until the day of the consummation, the great ⌈judgement⌉
- in which the age shall be consummated, over the Watchers and the godless, yea, shall be wholly consummated.”
- And now as to the Watchers / fallen angels / aliens… “You have been in heaven, but ⌈all⌉ the mysteries had not yet been revealed to you, and you knew worthless ones, and these in the hardness of your hearts you have made known to the women, and through these mysteries women and men work much evil on earth.” The Book of Enoch
We’re not talking breeding Golden Doodle dogs here. Different breeds of dogs are still the same species or kind.
We’re talking Jurassic Park. As well as being entertaining, the movie is instructive, if not 100% accurate.
In all Jurassic Park media dinosaurs are…cloned using paleo-DNA from either bones or the gut of mosquitoes in amber…Since the DNA is so old, it has to be repaired…DNA from other species has to be added to complete the code.
Once species were hybridized by scientists, things got completely out of control, consistent with what is reported in the Bible. The earth was filled with violence. In Jurassic Park, the addition of a certain frog DNA resulted in gender-adaptable individuals who could thus reproduce independently of the scientists’ planned control mechanisms, with their burgeoning offspring wreaking death on an unprotected population.
In actual medical labs non-sexual form of hybridization is happening right now.
1 million: Number of babies born in the United States between 1987 and 2015 through the use of IVF or other assisted reproductive technologies, according to a report released in 2017 by the by the U.S. Society of Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART). Assisted reproductive technologies include IVF or the use of an egg donor, sperm donor or adopted embryo.
I am not suggesting that babies born through invitro fertilization or sperm donation are hybrid monsters. I am simply gathering data on the development of existing methods of non-sexual reproduction that can be used to manufacture hybrids due to unavailability of sexual means since the Flood.
Organ transplantation also combines genetics from two separate individuals into one.
10 case studies selected from a compilation of 74 corresponding studies, which Paul Pearsall had accumulated before 2002…describe astonishing changes in the personalities of the recipients of donor hearts, which were confirmed by friends, acquaintances and relatives…
- A 56-year-old professor, who had received the heart of a 34-year-old policeman began to have dreams of the last minutes of the policeman’s life before being shot by a gunman.
- A 47-year-old man received the heart of a 14-year-old girl. His wife explained that her husband started behaving like…the girl from whom the heart originated…a talented gymnast who suffered from anorexia, an eating disorder, where after eating, the subject induces vomiting. One of her daughter’s distinctive characteristics: a ridiculous giggle.
- A 47-year-old metal worker became a lover of classical music after a heart transplant…befriends various people of colour and becomes the favourite among his black work colleagues…The metal worker received the heart of a 17-year-old black boy…described as having been a lover of classical music.
Pearsall, Schwartz, and Russek are trying to make sense of their results based on the theory…that…electromagnetic resonance information [is] stored in the donor heart…
Science has always been based on shifting boundaries.
Speaking of crossing boundaries…
China’s Communist regime has for two decades practiced systematic, forced organ removal from prisoners of conscience, mainly Falun Gong practitioners and Muslims…
After unwilling donors are executed, the tribunal found, their organs are sold to Chinese citizens or foreign “transplant tourists.” Before 2015, China, whose Confucian value system considers it important to keep the body intact after death, had no voluntary organ-transplant system. Yet hospitals perform some 60,000 to 90,000 transplant surgeries each year. [Multiply that number times the cost of a liver transplant ($170,000) or a kidney transplant ($130,000), and the result is an eye-popping $10 billion to 20 billion.]
Chinese hospitals promise that they can deliver hearts, livers, kidneys and corneas of matching blood type and size in two weeks. The surgeries can be scheduled in advance, which suggests hospitals know exactly when the “donors” are going to die. By contrast, America has a highly developed voluntary organ-donation system, and recipients typically have to wait hundreds of days…
Hundreds of thousands of people have been murdered and had their organs harvested since the practice was industrialized in 2000…killed by their government on an industrial scale…
We had presented the free world with mounds of evidence but were repeatedly dismissed. How many crimes did China’s global partners ignore, because the truth was inconvenient?
Again, I am not proposing that people with transplanted organs are demon possessed. The evil that is perpetrated can be accounted for by humans who will do whatever it takes, including allying with the most dangerous partners, to be able to deliver what everyone wants – the elixer of life, an end to disease and death by outwitting causes of illnesses and aging, by reincarnation, and by revival to a prolonged life.
In a remarkable—if likely controversial—feat, scientists announced today that they have created the first successful human-animal hybrids. The project proves that human cells can be introduced into a non-human organism, survive, and even grow inside a host animal, in this case, pigs [interestingly, defined by God as an unclean, i.e. hybrid, animal]. Published 2017
Geneticists at Kiel University, together with the University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein, discovered that the same longevity gene that makes the hydra immortal may also explain why humans get older, and more infirm…The study has produced two conclusions. First, the FoxO gene plays a key role in the maintenance of stem cells and thus determines the life span of all animals. Secondly, the aging and longevity of organisms depends on two factors: the maintenance of stem cells and the maintenance of a functioning immune system…
on human beings…that would require genetic manipulation…more studies on the Hydra and the FoxO gene are planned which could lay the foundations for the development of advanced rejuvenation therapy for humans in the future.
I am not saying that medicine can’t improve, prolong or restore physical life. Obviously it does. However, since the false christs are permanently disconnected from the source of life, they are incapable of bringing, restoring, or prolonging spiritual life, the life that matters. These beings are dead themselves in their own trespasses and sins.
“you…who were dead in trespasses and sins…walked according to the course of this world,according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” (Ephesians 2:1-2)
The gods / aliens are seeking to transfer life out of humans to themselves.
Extraterrestrials known as Alien-Human Hybrids are created through processes and procedures that occur during and after the abduction of, and/or visits with, Humans by ETs and Advanced Intelligences. The HR Team believes many, but not all, Hybrid beings are a biological combination between Humans and what we believe to be Extraterrestrials and Advanced Intelligences;…The term Transgenic Beings was officially put forward by abduction researcher Budd Hopkins in his 2003 book entitled Sight Unseen to describe these types of new beings.
The abomination of desolation is commonly conceived of as a statue, no doubt because it is reported to be “set up” by Daniel and “stand” by YHVH’s Savior. This grammatical interpretation is to be expected when knowledge of abstract spirituality is lost to society.
The more comprehensive meaning is “To raise in authority or power; invest with power: They set the general up as a dictator.”
The abomination that causes such desolation that the world as we know it comes to an end is a hybrid being, a mingling of angelic / alien and human DNA. As the offspring of the dragon, he inherits his tendency towards violence from Lucifer himself. See the post Seed of the Serpent for background.
- “And the king shall…exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god,
- and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods…
- in his estate shall he honour the God of forces…
- a god whom his fathers knew not…in the most strong holds with a strange god…
and he shall cause THEM to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain…And at that time…there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time.” (Daniel 2, 11)
These passages make it crystal clear that God’s people are not airlifted out of the war zone until the last trumpet sounds, at which point in time we are instantly transformed into hyper dimensional beings who join our Leader in battle.
In the meantime, we are here on earth.
The huge problem with American Christianity is the lack of willingness to fight and suffer for what is right, the conviction that heaven begins with earthly prosperity and superiority, and the cowardly conviction that believers escape the earth at the first sign of trouble rather than remaining to rescue so much as their own loved ones. There is no historical precedent of this whatsoever in the entire Bible. God’s people don’t retreat. We face the enemy, fearlessly!
when ye [his disciples] shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh…these be the days of [God’s] vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled….there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled…And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (Luke 21:20-24)
“The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; IF so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” (Romans 8:16-18)
“be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain. Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all.” (Philippians 2:15-17)
“the end of all things is at hand…think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you…For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” (I Peter 4:7-18)
Quoting George Bailey, in EXHeroes by Peter Clines, a novel realistically describing the lives of the few survivors of a post-apocalyptic world:
We just save everyone we can…It’s about hope…my favorite show when I was a kid was Dr. Who…the old one…the doctor didn’t have super powers, or weapons, or anything like that…he always just tried to do the right thing, no matter what. That struck me when I was a kid. That no matter how cold and callous the world seemed, there was somebody who just wanted to make life better. Not better for worlds, or countries in some vague way, just better for people trying to live their lives…I want to give them hope.
Christians putting their hope in escaping from death through a rapture instead of sharing their hope of eternal life with people dying all around them should be be put to shame by fiction writers modeling their heroes after Nietzsche’s Superman instead of Bible heroes of the faith.
“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children / followers to their fathers / godly religious leaders, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.” (Malachi 4:5-6)
The dreadful future awaiting mankind can be somewhat conceived by Elijah’s return in the future. The LORD of hosts sends his most experienced general into battle against a reign of terror and mass slaughter of God’s people. In his first time on earth he thought he was the only believer left. He was so terrified of the unimaginably cruel torture Jezebel had in store for him and so exhausted from running from it that he pleaded with the LORD to end his life.
“Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them [slaughtered]…And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life…and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life…the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
“And the LORD said unto him, Go [rhymes with “No”, instead of dying I order you to]:
- return [back through Israel where horde of Jezebel’s minions like the wicked witch’s evil monkeys are scouring the countryside for him, probably with a bounty on their heads if they don’t find him!] on thy way
- to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria [What! Syria is the sworn enemy of both Israel and Judah. Worse yet, he is being sent to scheme a coup against the king of Syria by Hazael the top general of his army! I can just image the look on his face which the LORD ignores as he proceeds to yet a worse situation.]
- And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel [in a coup against Ahab and Jezebel! As if he wasn’t in enough trouble with them already.]
- and [finally for some good news] Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room.
Elijah could only take action in faith that God would preserve his life until he finished the last of his battle instructions.
Follow the pattern.
- As in the days of Noah when only 8 people were saved from the flood,
- And in the day of Lot when only Lot and 3 members of his family were saved from fiery judgment,
- there will be pitifully few uncorrupted humans holding on to faith in God who delivers from death, either before or after the fact.
