"Do not be Deceived!"

 
Hello, John and Doves,
 
JW, kindly tell me how the AC plans to "duplicate" over 300 prophecies of Yeshua's first coming, and "duplicate" over 700 prophecies of His Second Coming.
 
I don't think there is any one alive today that qualifies as "this same Jesus" [Acts 1:11] except Yeshua Ha Mashiach Himself.
 
But wait!  The Enemy is a liar!
 
It is written,

“...[A]nd they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world....”  Revelation 17:8

 

I really don't think it is too high of a hurdle to jump for the first horseman to deceive already willingly ignorant people.

 
As far as the Rapture Test goes, did you miss it?  Just kidding!  Ha! Ha!
 
The tests are numerous, and never appear as such.  Want a clue?  WWJD?
 
It is written,
"As many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God."  Romans 8:14
 
Keep your eyes on the prize, Jesus, our Life, and you can't go wrong.
 
Baruch HaShem Yeshua,
Mike C.

"Do not be Deceived!"

Hi Doves,
 
 
Most of us are waiting, watching fervently for our Lord Jesus to come for us, and whoosh all of us away in the rapture to escape the tribulation. But, I’m not sure it will happen that way?? I am very concerned many of us are so expectant and impatient that we will be very easily deceived. Everyone talks about the rapture, the rapture, but what if there is a false rapture first, a test?? Are we ready for that?  Remember we are at war with the great deceiver himself.
 
KJV, Ephesians 6:12  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
 
Satan, I’m sure will try to duplicate the rapture, as the Antichrist must duplicate all Christ's prophecies to be believable and accepted as the coming Messiah. Why would Satan try to deceive us after the rapture? It makes no sense. He will deceive as many Christians as he can, possibly even the Elect, (if that were possible), maybe with clever laser holography and other high tech sights and sounds from satellites. (Blue Beam??) Lasers from satellites are a great way to make UFOs fly at incredible speeds and manoeuvre in an unbelievable fashion! Drive your dog crazy by using a laser pointer, moving the dot on the floor and the wall.  You can manoeuvre the dot in ways no physical object could ever replicate. Apparently they may even be able to put voices in our heads using selectable microwave technology to mimic our Lord saying “Come hither.”  Who knows,, but the Father. I do not want us to be deceived. We must be aware to remember exactly what the Bible says about Jesus return. That He will be seen coming in a cloud of Glory, as lightning is seen from horizon to horizon, with the dead in Christ, rising first.
If someone suggests you need to go somewhere like a field, or the local playground, to be raptured, I’d run the other way!! I’m am very certain it will be a spectacular deception!!
Someone posted an article/website that suggests Directed Energy Weapons, (DEW), were used to bring down the World Trade Centers.   Turning them to dust as opposed to a pile of rubble 15 stories high.  
It would be a very believable event to gather Christians to a specific location and then turn them into smoke and a little dust, while suggesting that they were removed to a better place or to the Mother ship, as they just did not fit in with the New World Order. news@cuttingedgeministries.net has a very good article on the false rapture.
 
Jesus responded to the disciples question of his return, by saying,  Do not be deceived, in Mathew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 17.
 
Matthew 24:

4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many

13But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

23Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

24For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

25Behold, I have told you before.

26Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

27For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Mark 13

5And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:

6For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Luke 17, 23-24.

23And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them.

24For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.

I do not know if these verses only apply to the time of the destruction of the temple in 70AD, or the second coming, and the rapture? I’m sure I’ll hear an opinion or two. But my reason for this post is to remind all of us to be ever watchful, vigilant, test everything with scripture and do not be deceived!

I do not profess any gift from God or special insight, nor do I believe we will know when the rapture will occur, but we are reminded to watch and be ready, I believe it may occur at any time. I hate to say it but I too have been seeing clocks and numbers at :11 everywhere I turn.  I feel God’s wrath is about to be thrust upon us at any moment and therefore expect the rapture soon after. After which, I expect a false rapture or two?? It seems many are forecasting a worldwide earthquake followed closely by national calamities prophesied in the Bible. Calamities such as economic collapse, nukes, EMP strikes, bursting dams, plagues,  tsunamis, and then aliens landing on the Whitehouse lawn telling us they are here to help us as they are our creators. Please welcome in the New World Order. We are certainly living in troubling times.

And so in closing, my wife has had it with me too! I love her for her concern and her patience with my studies.

So Doves we will see you soon!

We may be in for a test??
