The Rapture

Back on January 20, at 9:22 p.m., V. Susan Ferguson (a retired journalist who keeps us up to date on important stories), posted on Dane's site,
Geoengineering Watch Global Alert News, January 18, 2020
this comment by Paul Craig Roberts. I was not able to find it on Roberts' site, though I did not look that hard, and tend to avoid him because he usually is such an ardent Trump supporter, which makes me gag.

As Israel wants America at war with Iran, as the neoconservatives want America at war with Iran, as Pompeo and Pence are rapture-evangelicals who selfishly want the end of the world so they can be wafted up to Heaven, and as Trump's supporters in the public have been conditioned to regard Iran as a terrorist enemy, Israel can launch the Third World War whenever Netanyahu desires. Trump, Pompeo, political generals, rapture evangelism, and presstitutes are simultaneously discrediting the US government, the US military, Christianity, and giving Israel the power to take the United States to war, a power that it will be difficult for Israel not to use.

However, Susan follows this short quote by a much longer one, from which I am going to base much of this Bible message. It is from a website called Babylon Forsaken Ministries, and I read this particular article through a couple times and found it extremely interesting. I strongly suggest that you read it, too.
The Secret Rapture Lie
To say I found all of it disturbing is an understatement. EVERYTHING is becoming disturbing at this point. Here, the author disputes those who believe, as in the quote above, that Jesus will secretly come again, and swoop down to take the chosen ones into heaven so the rest can be destroyed. I will return to the article in a bit. But first I have some personal comments about the whole swooping down thing, Rapture or otherwise.

What I am seeing now are more and more people refusing to take action when we need it most because they think all this evil we are experiencing is "God's plan" and they don't want to interfere because they can't wait to get to heaven. There is a woman who has been a very close friend for years, and she is one of these who turn a blind eye, even though she knows what is going on. She knows about climate warfare and government corruption and animal abuse. She is a long-time vegetarian like myself, yet turns a blind eye to all the horrors the animals are now suffering. She was not always this way, at least to this extent. What evil creature does she worship as "god" that would favor these heinous beings who have taken over the planet over the poor innocents? Though she gives the impression of sweetness, any person who can turn away from these horrors and go around with a smile on their face, only talking about stupid useless shit, must have a heart that is stone-cold. She refuses to approach anything that requires depth of soul and spirit, and sadly cannot see that she has been captured by the Alien mind-control program. I do not even want to be in her presence any more. I find this attitude the epitome of arrogance and self-absorption and PURE EVIL. Yeah, let's kill off the whole world so I can get to heaven faster. She, and millions and millions of others, are EXACTLY where they want them to be. It is better to feel the pain of truth than to be pacified with soothing lies. WE ARE A WORLD PACIFIED BY LIES.

More and more, there are SO MANY people using their religion, and not just Christianity, to justify atrocious behavior, whether it be killing in "God's name," or having this smugness about their own celestial future that exempts them from speaking out against the perpetrators of evil that are at war against the entire web of life on this planet. Every one of Dane's broadcasts are becoming more and more dire. I never thought I would live to see the day when he would admit to breaking down and crying—over a photo of an injured koala in Australia, the exact total opposite of these stone-cold, closed minded "Christians." Not that I ever thought Dane was some kind of macho guy—he is anything but that. But he has such an immense inner strength and determination—well, many of us do, and we are ALL finding it difficult to keep from breaking down. How can anyone with any compassion or empathy go around with a big smile like everything is just fine? I am truly sickened by all the people who look at me as some kind of heathen, and wish I would just discover Jesus, then everything would be great. Just sit back. God has it ALL under control. THESE PEOPLE MAKE ME GAG. Here is Dane's latest broadcast and I strongly advise everyone to listen. I took notes on it and will probably share those in a regular article.

Geoengineering Watch Global Alert News, February 8, 2020

I want to point out that, though many people deny the truth, or KNOW the truth, yet won't take responsibility, there really are others who do not know or understand, and do not, at this point, have the capacity to do so. I have another friend whom I dearly love. She has been so good to me, and is a good person. She is not self-righeous, nor does she ever spout religious beliefs. But, for whatever reason, she is blind to reality, and I accept her as she is. She has never lied and is not a hypocrite, because she lives her life according to what she believes to be true. She will no doubt face an extremely rough awakening, but we all must look at situations like this as trying to get a two-year-old to read Shakesepeare. People can only operate at their current spiritual level. And I will be there to support her any way I can.

I am now going to cover a couple more articles. Please open them all and read them. Then I will focus on the Rapture article.

This first one is from Chris Hedges, one of my favorite political commentators, AND a Christian minister. I will say this for the hundredth time: Jesus was a radical. He was an activist. He pissed people off by telling the truth and put his life on the line to do WHAT WAS RIGHT. He never said it was OK to sit back and cover your own ass while "God" took care of everything. If you want to call yourself a Christian, then follow Christ's example. Otherwise you are nothing but a hypocrite. I am NOT a Christian, but I follow his example because it is TRUE AND RIGHT. Anyways, I have read this article a couple times, and it was difficult to find a paragraph to quote because every single one is important.

Lies are emotionally comforting in times of distress, even when we know they are lies. The worse things get, the more we long to hear the lies. But cultures that can no longer face reality, that cannot distinguish between falsehood and truth, retreat into what Sigmund Freud called "'screen memories," the merger of fact and fiction. This merger destroys the mechanisms for puncturing self-delusion. Intellectuals, artists and dissidents who attempt to address reality and warn about the self-delusion are ridiculed, silenced and demonized. There are, as Freud noted in "Civilizations and Its Discontents," distressed societies whose difficulties "will not yield at any attempt at reform." But this is too harsh a truth for most people, especially Americans, to accept.
America: Land of Make-Believe

Here is another excellent article, about lies and betrayal—and the coronavirus, which may be the straw that broke the camel's back. Something is on the edge of happening that will wipe out the delusion of those who believe we can continue life on this planet on the road we are on, or even at all. There is ONE FINAL EVENT that will push over that first domino, and any attempt to cover up after that will be futile. If it is not a pandemic, it will be something else, but one thing for certain is that it will happen soon. Dane speaks of this in the News Alert posted above. Please read this article, too, beginning with this quote: "When you've been lied to, you've been betrayed. Betrayal has consequences." Here, Smith speaks of that moment when people understand they have been betrayed, and once the lies and betrayal affects one personally, the bubble is broken. When a spouse cheats, marital trust may never be restored. This all is MUCH worse than that, of course. It is seeing through the delusion that people believed was their reality. THAT is what needs to happen.
The Pandemic Isn't Ending, It's Just the Beginning of Global Disorder and Depression
Here are a couple quotes from the article. I want to point out that Dane has said over and over again that no one can expect infinite expansion on a finite planet. We CANNOT keep growing, in population, monetary value, natural resources—NOTHING! Everything has its limits when you are confined to a physical reality such as ours.

Once confidence in ever-higher wages, benefits, sales, profits and speculative gains withers, all bets are off. The loss of confidence is akin to a loss of faith or loss of credibility: none of these can be restored overnight. Once your confidence that a speculative gamble will pay off is dashed, you're not going to rush out to make the same gamble tomorrow.
Confidence doesn't just evaporate; it's replaced by uncertainty, anxiety and fear. Better safe than sorry becomes the implicit context: better to close now than gamble on a magical-thinking return to normalcy tomorrow. Better to go back to the ancestral village now rather than risk going back to work and becoming a victim of the "no big deal, just another flu" who ends up dead as a result of trusting the authorities' reassurances.

Now I will go on to discuss the Rapture article. Again, I urge everyone to read it through. Please note, I do not believe Jesus is coming again, at least not in the Biblical sense. I think he was an Alien, and probably went back to his own dimension after his work was done, or like so many of us, have incarnated in this crucial time in order to make sure that the Alien force is finally wiped out. As I have said numerous times, we must clean up this mess if we expect to move on or create a new reality. If we do not right these wrongs and force disclosure of the truth, any new place we choose to abide or create another race will only end up the same as this one. Again, in the back of my mind I cannot but wonder if we—WE had a thriving civilization at one time on Venus, and the same scenario took place. What we know as the Venus syndrome, a sudden explosion of heat that killed off everything and left the planet lifeless is pretty damn close to where we are heading now. But, as I always try to be open minded, and I DO believe there will be a great purging AND bifurcation—a splitting off of the planet's population according to each person's level of evolution, therefore I look to many different sources in order to capture bits of truth. I also have to wonder, as I said, if Jesus isn't perhaps already here, working with us to end this imprisonment. How would people even recognize him? What are they looking for? A man with long hair in a white robe wearing sandals, jobless and homeless. That's what Jesus was, you know. Now he would be called a vagrant and probably arrested!! HA!! Be careful what you look for. Anyways . . . . The following quote is the opening paragraph of the article.

Many honest Christians believe that Christ is going to come back to this earth in two ways—one being in secret, the other visible. The former will be silent in which Christ comes to secretly rapture or remove His followers from earth before the great time of trouble and tribulation occurs. Then after several years, the visible and literal appearing of Christ will take place in which those who were not ready during the time of the secret rapture will have a second chance to make themselves ready throughout the tribulation, after which Christ will come to save them.

In the article, the author states that there are two beliefs, one being that Jesus will come in secret, and the other that he will appear to all. The author makes a case against those who believe in the "rapture," citing numerous Bible verses which back him up. He (and I am using that pronoun, but it could be a "she" as no author's name appears) supplies a section on the origin of the Secret Rapture, saying that it was NOT taught by anyone except a few Catholic theologians until about 1830!! It began with a Jesuit priest named Ribera, then was spread by various others, and here is how it came to the present:

There is one final link in the chain of the development and spread of the rapture theory that should be mentioned in passing. Scofield and Darby influenced D. L. Moody, and Moody influenced the early PENTECOSTAL MOVEMENT. How? you ask. The Assemblies of God is today by far the largest Pentecostal denomination in the world. In 1914 they ordered their Sunday School and study materials from the Moody Press. So the Assemblies of God believed what the Moody Bible Institute taught, which included the "Secret Rapture".

The most important element of this belief is that the chosen ones would be taken into heaven while the rest of us endured "the time of trouble, tribulation, persecution, and the working of Satan with lying wonders." Well, gosh, we are surely there now, wouldn't you say? And I don't notice that people have been swooped up to heaven, or maybe it's because we are all so bad there are few left to swoop up. Or maybe it is all just bullshit.

The more traditional view, at least the one argued by this author or authors, is that the wicked will be taken and the rest will suffer the seven years of tribulation. Again, tribulation has been going on for more than seven years, although I have to say that beginning in 2019, or maybe 2018, everything seemed to be closing in and reaching a peak. But I STILL see this planet inhabited by both evil (lots) and some who are very, very good. Again, even us Pagans believe there will be a division simply because the chasm of vibrational energy between those who are awakening and those who are fast asleep would make it impossible for both groups to inhabit the same physical space. But the truth is, NO ONE knows exactly how all will play out, and if we do not rid ourselves of this Alien presence, we may all end up back in the recycling bin to incarnate somewhere else and ruin another planet.

Here are some of the verses the author uses to make his point, first that, clearly, Christ's coming would be visible to all.

Revelation 1:7 "Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him."

The author then comments that "Signs will occur just prior to His arrival." Well, there certainly are signs now. Then the author goes back to the Old Testament and points out the in the days of Noah, it was the ones that remained, the ones in the ark who survived while the wicked were removed. "Now in the days of Noah, who was taken and who were left? The wicked were taken and the righteous were left." He then quotes Luke:

Luke 13:35-36, "Two women shall be grinding together, the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left."

He adds:

Now some teach that those who are left will remain alive and experience 7 years of tribulation. In truth it is those who are taken that are receiving the "trouble". Those who are 'taken' are those who are not prepared to meet the Lord when he comes, and they are taken in death, just like the wicked were taken in death when the flood came.

He next adds that clearly, those "taken" would be dead.

Revelation chapter 19 depicts in graphic detail the return of Christ, with him calling for the birds of the air to "Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God . . . That ye may eat the flesh of the kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh OF ALL MEN, both free and bond, both small and great." Revelation 19:17-18.

Next the author provides more verses that state it is the wicked who will be removed, and the righteous who will remain. There are lots of loose ends in that one in my beliefs, such as, what if this is all just an illusion, but this isn't the article to dwell on that. The important thing is, the wicked will be removed, and that is in harmony with my beliefs and, I believe with the theme of Bringers of the Dawn.

When the Lord returns who will be removed from the earth, the wicked or the righteous? Matthew 13:41-43 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Proverbs 10:29-30 The way of the LORD is strength to the upright: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity. The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.

Proverbs 2:21-22 For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it. But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.

He also talks about what will happen after the "Tribulation," and it sounds an awful like what is happening now.

Matthew 24:29-31 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And 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. And 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.

Well, we certainly have a darkened sun and moon and all kinds of stuff falling from the skies. The author then goes on to discuss the Anti-Christ. Oh my goodness, do we not presently have a line at the door to sign up for THAT position!!! But this really becomes chillingly apropos when we look at what's sitting in the White House.

2 Thessalonians 2:3 "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;"

2 Thessalonians 2:4-6 "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time."

The author clearly states that disclosure will happen.

Why would Paul warn the believers in this verse if they were supposed to be raptured up beforehand anyway? 2 Thessalonians 2:8 "And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:"

And here I will stop, which is about two-thirds of the article. I trust you will read it and study it yourselves. I am going to keep it handy, and my own Bible, too, for further reading. Remember, no matter what your beliefs, be open to wisdom wherever it reveals itself. Open your mind and be prepared. These are indeed "Biblical times." I want to close with an article about one of the leading candidates for the Anti-Christ. And I also must say the Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are just as evil. If they were truly standing up for the Constitution, Trump would be gone. And so would most of the rest of the Washington vermin.
