"The Very Soon Rapture"

Dear friends:

God says, through the apostle Paul:
"The Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words" (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18, NKJV).
This describes a future biblical event of the ages, triggering the final phase of God's plan for this dispensation.

BREAKING NEWS!  A group of very astute Bible students with whom I am in contact believes they have determined that this event will take place during the last few days of this month, March, 2013, during Passover, which is March 25 through April 2.  They cite numerous reasons, with confirming signs.  (I am submitting this to you as a reporter, not an expert.)

At about the same time that this was discovered and announced, other interesting and related developments happened on the world scene.

1.  Obama announced that he will be in Jerusalem at about the time of Passover.  Many believe Obama is the anti-Christ. I am not sure , but he is definitely acting like he is (Muslim, anti-Israel, anti-Christian).  Does this mean that the "abomination that makes desolate" will be "standing in the Holy Place" during Passover?  (Matthew 24:15).  "Let the reader understand."  Interesting possibility.

2.  At about this time, the Pope suddenly and shockingly resigned.  Odd timing.  The new Pope (possibly the False Prophet) may be in Jerusalem at the same time as the anti-Christ, during Passover.  St. Malachi, the 12th century Irish bishop, who in a vision saw the names of all of the Popes from his own day until the end of the Catholic Church. Exactly 112 of them. Some of his "names" have been intriguingly accurate. See the page http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-religion/1351430/posts for some examples.  According to Malachi, Pope John Paul II was the second-from-last Pope. The newly-elected Pope Benedict XVI is the next to last; the Pope following him will be the final Pope, who will oversee the destruction of the Church. ( http://rense.com/general64/newp.htm.)
3.  It appears that nuclear war is imminent between Israel and Iran, and maybe others, and us, too.

If the rapture happens, are you ready for it?  How do you get ready?  You must be washed in the blood of Christ. Tell others.
