Hmmmmmm...... Discovery Channel this Sunday night, 8pm, est. Show: Curiosity. Title: is the world ready for an allien invasion??The Discovery Channel has done a number of really good shows in the past few years, on the Rapture, End Times, etc. I've often asked myself "Do the people who run the Discovery Channel know something????"And now this new show series. Last week, the premier, Steve hawking did a show called: Did God Create the Universe? Followed by a 30 minute panel discussion.......Below is an excerpt from the Rapture Ready website, an article by Mike Taylor titled......of all things..... "ALERT! Alien Invasion."Put this article together with the upcoming TV show......and there you go...... the prophetic answer to explain what caused the Rapture..... from the leaders left behind after it all starts!!IN THE POSSIBLE NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE, A SCENARIOSuddenly, a Newsflash comes over the Internet. Your radio is blaring out as emergency sirens go off all over your neighborhood. Emergency vehicles are rushing to accidents right in your area. You might wonder “What has happened?”. You turn on the TV and the horror of mass confusion fills the screen. Still another is sitting, uninterested listening to a preacher in church tell the same old story that they’ve heard many, many times, but “hey, it’s not for me.”. Suddenly, they hear something. Maybe it’s a loud clap of thunder, or was it a trumpet blast? It brings them back to reality, as they look around the seats of all the people that were in the pews are basically empty, except them, and a few others who look at them with sheer terror in their eyes. Suddenly, it dawns on them as they had heard it time and time again and never took it seriously. Their mother, or their father, maybe their son, daughter, or any friend that they knew is suddenly ……….GONE!! Vanished!! They were given no warning and they are left in utter terror. They MAY or may not realize with tears and sobs that they just missed the most important event in all of mankind, the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to carry His chosen ones, His Father’s children to be with Him, forever and ever. I Corinthians chapter 15:15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.Wait a minute, they don’t believe that stuff or didn’t, so there has to be a scientific explanation for this, right? They rush home the best way they can and turn on their TV for news of what has happened. A leader of the “free world” has come on to calm the nation. This future person takes a deep breath, as they realize, that at least the president is still here. He speaks of reports of many missing people and that Homeland Security is on the scene of many areas of missing people. He calls for calm and calls in the National Guard, or what’s left of it, to put down looting and other criminal activity. He says stay tuned for further developments.They switch channels and the report is interviewing a “Emergent Church” pastor that makes the statement that these people were removed from earth, as they stood in the way of man’s quest for a peaceful world and ushering in a New World order and unity of the faith. Without these “rabble rousers” maybe we can live in peace and security and focus on making this world the paradise we had envisioned and have “heaven on earth”. Other than that, he has no real explanation.Switching channels, they find a serious looking gentleman that has just been elected to a New World body and is quite familiar to them. Seems he came out of nowhere. He might have been a unknown senator from Illinois, or may have been president for a short while, but now he heads a World “Council on Human Development” headed by the United Nations. He hypothesizes and backs it up with so-called scientific information of monitoring sightings of unusual signs in the skies that have been being tracked for some years now. He may speak of this “it is the opinion of this world body, that these missing people were the victims of an alien abduction. Please stay in your homes and do not answer to anyone without official documentation that they are from your local authorities.”Obviously, this is conjecture, but I believe it is possible, in this scenario, that the event will be somehow explained away. Many people will grasp onto any explanation of what has just happened.Before the man of sin appears, Satan must lay some groundwork to prepare for his acceptance. What better way than to throw the world into quarreling and divisive and wearying confusion? Could the lie to calm the people be attributed to an “ALIEN INVASION.”? People then yearn for some strong and seemingly wise hands to set things straight, so the nations can "catch their breath" and have a span of peaceful calm. In its wake, confusion creates directionless people, with little desire to change the status quo, whose minds are turned in upon themselves in an attempt to keep what they have. They want to continue in their sinful lives and find answers to this event that has turned their world upside down.And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. II Thessalonians 2:11-12.
