The Timing of the Rapture

With the end of the Mayan long-count calendar rushing upon us, Dec. 21st is now 11 days away and counting. That's not yet a full two weeks.


I wanted to write this blog, because there is uncertainty in my mind. Not of the rapture, that it will take place, but of its timing.  In studying the occult/(Ancient) New Age doctrine, Islamic eschatology, and finding that it’s very similar (new order out of chaos ~ also true of Masons/Satanists)  and that Muslims are trying to usher in their Imam Madhi;, the Catholic prophecy of St. Malachy, that the next pope, Petrus Romanus, is going to be the final Pope and False Prophet; wars and rumors of wars are heard on almost a daily basis; the weather patterns of cataclysmic disasters are continuing to increase in frequency and  intensity; because New Agers are teaching that Mother Earth is cleansing herself; the Mayans, Aztecs, Hopi  and Cherokee all believe that their paradise plumed serpent god is returning, and a new age is initiating… and all this is supposed to be converging right at the end of 2012, as the earth  moves out of the Aries constellation, and into the constellation of Aquarius.

 *Oh, and something I almost forgot, there is so much to keep in mind, which is why this all is statisically amazing that all this would be happening right around the same time, or the same date!  We don't make much of the stars, well, unless you're into astrology... but Genesis tells us that the Maker, Elohim created the stars (and the constellations) to... "be for signs and for seasons and for days and years" Genesis 1:14.  Could it be that Elohim set a date known only to Himself, and that marker was at the transition into the constellation of Aquarius?  It seems likely.

The Psalmist tells us that the skies, "day after day pour forth speech, and night after night display knowledge."  God originally created a story of the gospel in the skies, He proclaimed it in the heavens, but Nimrod, the demonic despot who wanted to take the world back to the time before the flood, corrupted the stories of the constellations.  I don't have time to develop that now, but can give you some links for your own investigations, here and here.

So the case looks very positive for those who have a hope in the pre-tribulational rapture, at the onset of the reign of the Antichrist.  This too is my belief, though I don’t feel that I have to set Dec. 21st as the day of the rapture.  I believe that it might be tomorrow, could be right now or in five minutes!  But it could be a pre-wrath rapture, which I believe scripture allows for. 

I think it depends upon how you interpret 2 Thess. 2:8:

2 Thessalonians 2:7-8  7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way.  8 Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming;

Traditionally, I have understood verse seven to refer to the Holy Spirit within the true Church.  That seems to me the only plausible explanation of something which could restrain evil, which is the command Jesus gave His followers before He ascended to heaven (Mt. 28:19-20).  When this ‘force’ is completely removed from the earth, then evil may have its full measure.

If this interpretation is the correct one (and we shall soon see), the Church must be removed according to ancient scriptures, in order for the new world leader to come to power.  I don’t necessarily see a contradiction with the Church being left to see the beginnings of the one world government.  2 Thess. 2:8 could also be understood as “being revealed” as when the antichrist takes his seat in the temple declaring himself to be God and blaspheming God and the inhabitants of heaven. (Daniel 7:25).  It may be that he is not “revealed,” though he is working behind the scenes with the 7 year peace treaty.  But at the murder of the two witnesses who were sent from El Elyon, the Most High, this Satanic leader will take his place in Yahweh’s temple claiming he is God (Rev. 13:3-5).

Either way, the terrific hope is that, for the believer, to be absent from the body is to present with the Lord (2 Cor. 5:8), but more than that, a new age truly is emerging, where the Messiah will replace the kingdoms of this world, and it will fill the entire earth, and all the peoples of the earth (who return with Christ, and those who live through the tribulation/judgment period, (btw, according to the first link I gave you on the original message of the constellations, Aquarius was equated with th flood, Yahweh's judgement on earth.  Seems fitting the New Age is moving into the period of judgment.)will live in the Millennial blessings of God’s anointed ruler, who gave Himself for us on the cross. 

I’ll let Daniel spell it out for you himself.  This vision he received while living in Iraq:

Daniel 2:43-45  43 "And in that you saw the iron mixed with common clay, they will combine with one another in the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, even as iron does not combine with pottery.  44 "In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which will never be destroyed, and that kingdom will not be left for another people; it will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, but it will itself endure forever.  45 "Inasmuch as you saw that a stone was cut out of the mountain without hands and that it crushed the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold, the great God has made known to the king what will take place in the future; so the dream is true and its interpretation is trustworthy."

Maitreya, Imam Mahdi, Messiah, Ascended Master, whatever you call him, is about to come, and the majority of earth’s inhabitants will be killed.  But the Antichrist’s reign is only a short time.  Lord Yeshua will come at the end of seven years in power and glory, and will destroy his foes.  People get ready, Yeshua is coming!
