We now know that globalists with authority like Dr. Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx have been lying to we the people about COVID-19 deaths which have been numerically falsified. In fact, doctors and hospitals have been incentivized to embellish the number of COVID-19 deaths in exchange for financial reward though the actual cause of death was not from COVID-19. Unafraid of the medical establishment, some doctors around the country have revealed this deliberate lie.
Being lied to by unregenerate people is to be expected. It’s natural for them. Their father is the devil who “speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it” (John 8:44). But it’s not natural or expected that men and women who profess faith in Christ would lie about what Christ taught, to whom they will one Day give account, yet, they boldly do. They lie knowing the truth, while knowing that Jesus said He gathers His elect “Immediately after the tribulation”.
The pre-trib rapture tradition openly lies about the very nature of the unchangeable God, who explicitly said by His Spirit “We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God” (Acts 14:22). But that doesn’t tickle the ears or draw crowds, so, church authorities reject His promise of the end-time tribulation as being relevant to them or their followers, and falsely, selfishly assign the end-time tribulation to others less fortunate. They do not love God’s truths that disagree with their traditions, nor do they fear lying about the Lord’s end-time teachings.
Dear reader, I don’t know what you believe, but understand that there are many theologians, pastors and teachers, Christian authorities, who, for tradition’s sake, for popularity, and for the praise of men, pervert the end-time truth just like globalists pervert the truth about COVID-19. But if you do not believe, and prepare in, the testimony of Christ, then you have no business believing your favorite pre-trib rapture theologian, pastor or teacher either!
God said “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap” (Gal. 6:7). It’s truly astonishing the number of pastors and teachers who yet lie to their followers by exchanging what Christ taught, that He gathers His elect “Immediately after the tribulation” (Matt. 24:29–31) for the empty and deceptive pre-trib rapture promise that Christ gathers His elect before the tribulation. They extort the truth and teachings of Jesus Christ for love of their own tradition, for ear-tickling popularity and praise.
Know this: by authority of the Son of the Most High God, Jesus Christ, you and I will be right here on earth for the full seven years of tribulation, and the time to prepare for it is now! If you choose not to prepare to endure to the end like the five foolish virgins of Matt. 25:1–13, you will deeply regret having believed the testimony of false teachers. They are charlatans who teach the hopeless and deceptive pre-trib rapture which cannot be found in Scripture except by conjecture and many false assumptions, both of which are foolish ways of handling the Scriptures.
There are dark and terrible days ahead requiring decisions of life and death – decisions that will require one to follow Christ Jesus, or this godless world system that ignores the testimony of our Lord Jesus. The world will soon force a vaccine that is not now the mark of the beast, but will be the developmental path to it. U.S. President Donald Trump is planning to mobilize the military to dispense 300 million doses of the vaccine in America by December 2020. It will be mandatory.
Again, I post a link to this Microsoft article. The world has a plan to destroy true Christians, and it’s summed up in this article’s last paragraph: “As more and more transactions become digital in nature and are built around a single global identification standard, supported by Microsoft, the question of who will govern this evolving global community and economy becomes relevant. Especially since nonparticipants in this system would be unable to buy or sell goods or services.” [My bold emphasis] Now read the prophetic from God’s Word at Rev. 13:16–17.
Do not think to yourself that you’ll be raptured before the Rev. 13:16–17 mark of the beast is reality. You will not be raptured pre-tribulation! Jesus Christ is Savior, God and LORD, not your favorite pastor, theologian or Bible teacher who teaches the pre-trib rapture heresy! Pre-trib rapture teachers are like Korah, Dathan, and Abiram of Num. 16, who led the rebellion against God’s anointed leaders Moses and Aaron. Today, Jesus Christ is God’s Anointed Leader. And I implore you by the love and truth of God’s immutable Word to “let God be true and every man a liar” (Rom. 3:4). The pre-trib rapture teaching is by that old Serpent, the devil.
Here’s God’s promise about the gathering of His elect saints: “Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him [the rapture]…Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thess. 2:1–4). The pre-trib rapture teaches “another Jesus [and] a different gospel” (2 Cor. 11:4), and the Day the Lord Jesus gathers His elect will prove it.
Clearly, two events occur before Christ gathers His elect “Immediately after the tribulation” (Matt. 24:29–31). First, “the falling away” from the Christian faith, and secondly, “the son of perdition”, the Antichrist, will take his seat “in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God”. We are even now seeing “the falling away” as many professing Christians have given themselves over to accepting homosexuality, immorality and suicide as acceptable to God. It’s sad that much of the organized church no longer knows or believes what God said about Truth.
Antichrist being seated “in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” requires further discernment. Is that temple physical or spiritual? Because God said “you are the temple of God” (1 Cor. 3:16), it’s true then, that “the falling away” is the consequence of the spirit of Antichrist becoming enthroned in the spiritual temple of those who once believed Christ, but then through deception believe the spirit of “the man of sin”. Others say “the temple of God” in this context means the physical rebuilt third temple in Jerusalem. My personal belief is that that “temple” is both spiritual and physical, based on 2 Thess. 2:3–4 and Matt. 24:15, respectively.
It’s time to choose who you believe: Jesus Christ or the false traditions of man. “No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon” (Luke 16:13). What or who is enthroned on the temple of your heart – the Words of the Lord Jesus or traditions of men? Allow Christ and His Word to be supreme in your heart; believe Him, and prepare accordingly.
