RAPTURE - OCTOBER 28, 1992
WHAT TO DO IN CASE YOU MISS THE RAPTURE
I. STAY CALM AND DO NOT PANIC
Your natural reaction once you realize what has just occurred is to
panic. But to do so is absolutely useless now. If you had wanted to get
right with god before the rapture, you could have, but you chose to wait.
Now your only chance is to stay on this earth and to endure to the end of
the Tribulation. "But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall
be saved." - Matthew 24:13
II. REALIZE YOU ARE NOW LIVING DURING THE GREAT TRIBULATION
The Great Tribulation is a seven year period starting from the time
of the rapture until Christ's second coming. Also know as "the time of
Jacob's (Israel's) trouble" (Jere 30:7) and "Daniel's Seventieth Week"
(Dan 9), this period will be unparalleled in trouble and horror.
III. GATHER AS MANY BIBLES AS YOU CAN AND HIDE THEM
Soon after the Antichrist becomes the leader of the European
Community (the revived Roman Empire), Bibles will be confiscated and
owning a Bible will be tantamount to treason. The Bible, however,
will be your most valuable possession during the Tribulation.
IV. READ THE BIBLE LIKE YOU HAVE NEVER READ IT BEFORE IN YOUR LIFE
Since all of your Bibles may be confiscated, even if you are
careful, it is imperative that you read the word until you memorize
whole passages and can quote them. It is especially important to
read Daniel, Luke 21, Matthew 24, Revelation, and Amos, for these
books describe the events you can expect to unfold before you.
V. PRAY LIKE YOU HAVE NEVER PRAYED BEFORE IN YOUR LIFE
Pray until the power of god comes strongly upon you - pray and
pray and pray. Only by reading the word and praying will you gain the
spiritual strength to be able to withstand the torture you may have to
endure for the sake of christ.
VI. DO NOT TAKE THE MARK AT ANY COST - EVEN IN FIT MEANS YOU AND YOUR LOVED
ONES DIE AS MARTYRS
After the Antichrist becomes the leader of the European Community,
he will institute a world economic system, designed so that you cannot
buy, sell, or eat unless you take his mark or the number of his name.
Money will be useless. "And he causes all, both small and great, rich
and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on
their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has
the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here
is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the
beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666" - Revelation
The Antichrist will implement the greatest slaughter in all of
humanity. Think of the various ways people have been tortured and
killed in the past, such as the Holocaust. [or maybe the crusades? -M]
You cannot even imagine the horror that will take place under the
Antichrist's rule; it will be much worse than anything in history
(Matt 24:21) "...I saw under the altar the souls of those who had
been slain for the word of god and for the testimony which they held.
And a white robe was given to each of them: and it was said to them
that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number
of the fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as
they were, was completed." Revelation 6:9, 11.
His targets will be Jews and Christians who do not worship his
image or take the mark on their forehead or right hadn/ "...And I saw
the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus
and for the word of god, who had not worshiped the beast or his image,
and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on the hands." -
Revelation 20:4. He will use every form of torture and humiliation
in order to force you to renounce christ. Nor will he hesitate to
use your loved ones against you, even your children, torturing and
killing them in front of you so that you will be tempted to take
If you take the mark or worship the Antichrist or his image,
however, you will be consigned to the second death, which is the Lake
of Fire. [Sung about so eloquently by Johnny Cash...-M]
You cannot be redeemed. It is better to endure torture for a short
while and gain eternal life then [sic] to endure eternal torment in
the Ring^H^H^H^H Lake of Fire. "...If anyone worships the Beast and
his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he
himself shall also drink the wine of the wrath of god, which is poured
out full strength into the cup of his indignation. An [sic] he shall
be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels
and in the presence of the Lamb." -Revelation 14:9-10
[and probably in the presence of season-ticket holders; special hats
given to the first 5,000 at the stadium --M]
VII. SET A PLAN IN MOTION FOR SURVIVAL
Although you may not be able to hide from the Antichrist's government
until the end of the Tribulation, all of the time you gain in hiding is
important for your spiritual growth and strengthening, since only those
who are extremely strong in christ can suffer and die for his sake.
The first thing to do is move out of the city and into a rural or
mountainous area, for the Antichrist's control will come last to the least
populated areas. Take a good radio or TV with you so that you can stay
attuned to events and discern the time schedule of the Tribulation.
["As you can see on the weather map, heavy currents of Tribulation will
sweep into our area by daybreak. Expect delays on I-95 outbound, and
perhaps school closings" --M]
Store water and food, because you will not be able to purchase anything
without the mark. Water in lakes and streams will be polluted by
radioactive waste from nuclear warfare and will eventually turn into
blood. [Get a good water filter. --M]
Bring different types of clothing for all seasons, as well as flashlights,
batteries, generators, and First Aid supplies. In short, learn how to
survive and live off the land as the pioneers did.
VIII. TRUST NO ONE
There will be secret agents everywhere, spying for the Antichrist's
government. Be on the lookout. [Perot supporters take note --M]
IX. WATCH FOR THE ANTICHRIST
It is important to realize who the Antichrist is and what he is up to,
for he will deceive many into thinking that he is a great world leader
who will bring peace and prosperity to a world hungry for it. We can
infer from Daniel 11 certain characteristics of this man. Popular
during the first three and a half years of the Tribulation, he will
dominate the airwaves. He will be physically appealing, highly
intelligent, with christ-like charisma and personality. An international
politician, military tactician and economic expert, his word will be
peace; he will make a treaty with the Jews, which he will break after
three and a half years. He will have such supernatural power that a
mortal wound to his head will be healed. Even the very elect will
be deceived. If you do not pray and read the Bible, you too will be
deceived. [Dominate the airwaves? Perhaps Howard Stern or Rush
The antichrist will have a companion, the False Prohphet [sic],
who will make an image in the likeness of the Antichrist and cause it
to speak. All who refuse to worhsip [sic] the image will be killed.
The final three and a half years will be absolutely insane, with
demonized spirits everywhere.
X. DO NOT GIVE UP HOPE!
The seven years of Tribulation will end with the triumphant return of
Christ. The Antichrist will be defeated. Be steadfast and endure, and you
will be rewarded greatly in Heaven.
Start reading the bible and praying fervently now. The salvation of
your sould depends upon it. Determine that, come what may, you will not take
the mark or worship the Antichrist. You still have a chance to be saved or
remain saved, but this time you will have to be "faithful unto death."
May god find you ready in the hour of his glorious return!
