This little essay will only be for Christians who feel like they are left behind. Hopefully, you have recognized the appearance of Antichrist and now know that what so many pastors taught about the Rapture of the Saints was just so much opinion in the form of a comforting story analogy.
The Apocalypse has obviously started, many rapture believing theologians will be ashamed and disappear into their protective enclaves. Yes, that means they will still be mortal and still walking around on earth. Being raptured before the Apocalypse to escape God’s Wrath was a very popular teaching because it does not upset one’s lifestyle, but it is not well-supported by the Bible, as is plain to one who understands the Plan of God for humanity.
I believe that the Lord Jesus will keep his plan unchanged and return to earth at the 7th trumpet and not at a 1 st trumpet rapture as postulated. Let’s read some Scripture to understand better what lies ahead. Although many pastors have lost their credibility, God’s Word remains forever. The same goes for my own writings: my mistakes do not void the Bible’s validity.
I get some email from readers who ask somber questions about what will happen and how can a person prepare for what is coming. The answer is not simple. So much depends on your spiritual state. Babies only should drink milk, but if you are grown up in the faith, to fully understand the Word of God requires solid food. One thing is sure: if God planned our lives to be shaped during our journey in the Daleth dimension, he will see us through to the end - perfected in his presence like a beautiful butterfly coming out from the cocoon.
Going through the Apocalypse will be a fearful experience, but it will become realty for many when the time has come; therefore, it is important to know what to expect and not depend on comatose theologians waiting for the rapture and never noticing that the house is burning down all-around them. Like so many passengers on the Titanic believed in an unsinkable ship, they are not making an effort to warn people to find a lifeboat.
It would be helpful to read Pearl #126: The Population Curve According to the Bible. I project thatthe world population will be reduced by 4.5 billion by the end of the Apocalypse. Population reduction will begin with the ride of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse made famous in image by another German, Albrecht DurerAt the end of their ride within the first 3 years of the Apocalypse, 25% of all people on earth will be dead. God’s plan ends this present, evil civilization in order to save this earth for future generations to populate a third great civilization under God’s reign of mortal nations living in peace with justice for a thousand years without having his food destroyed by Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs).
When God’s Wrath is poured out, he will mark those he wants to survive the coming years of trials so as to continue his plan for humanity. At the end of the Apocalypse, God will usher in a new Golden Age by closing down the Zayin Age school of learning about evil and send the master teacher – Satan - to jail, chained for a 1,000-year sentence before he is executed for his rebellion against a holy God. Hallelujah!
Bible verses lined up like pearls teach us reality. Jesus gave a parable alluding to Christians being divided into two groups of virgins. (Matthew 25) Half will not humble themselves to understand God’s Word. The others enter the bridegroom’s party. To make separating Bad News and Good News easy, I will give the bad news first, then focus on the good news.
Theologians usually forget that any dogma they preach must have 5 witnesses. Usually two [+one] is required, but when one speaks as God’s representative, he needs five witnesses from the Heh Dimension - which includes the Bible, and that is the rule. Not abiding with that rule makes you an easy target for the devil and confuses those wishing to become Saints. The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Theory does not have 5 witnesses and should therefore be discarded. It is just an interesting theological theory that quotes the Bible out of the context of God’s 7,000-Year Plan for Humanity. Even Satan and his demons conform to that plan. Notice the 7:5 Hebrew Alphabet Number System (HANS) relationship put in its proper perspective.
Let’s not have an opinionated sermon, but just let the Word of God be our guidance as we search for the 5 witnesses needed. This approach is especially important for those having a family with children. Beginning 21 December 2008, conditions will steadily deteriorate irregularly with the current waves of financial crises finally declining into global wars and oppression taking place after 21 December 2012.
Remember, time passes steadily without stopping, and it will be over one way or another. A surviving person’s life will either be rewarded in God’s presence like the butterfly stage in the Heh dimension, or assigned as a mortal to repopulate the earth now helping to restore the environment together with the Saints for a thousand years of building up God’s Kingdom in the Daleth dimension. In my case, the outcome is more certain: I will soon enter the cocoon stage as I am too old to start life over.
Witness #1 -
When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slaughtered for the word of God and for the testimony they had given; they cried out with a loud voice, “Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long will it be before you judge and avenge our blood on the inhabitants of the earth?” They were each given a white robe and told to rest a little longer, until the number would be complete both of their fellow servants and of their brothers and sisters, who were soon to be killed as they themselves had been killed. (Revelation 9:9-11)
The sixth seal shows the Saints in a special place under the Throne from across the seven years of the 2008-2015 Apocalypse. They where executed for testifying their faith.
Witness #2 -
Also it [The beast system with the Antichrist] was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them. It was given authority over every tribe and people and language and nation, and all the inhabitants of the earth will worship it, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb that was slaughtered. Let anyone who has an ear listen: If you are to be taken captive, into captivity you go; if you kill with the sword, with the sword you must be killed. Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints. (Revelation 13:7-10)
The Saints must endure and are not exempt from the random killing by a demonic possessed mob let loose from the underworld. If the Saints die, they are saved and rewarded in the Heh dimension. In early church history, many Christians were terribly persecuted: we have now a replay.
Witness #3 -
Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell who does not have the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let anyone with understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a person. Its number is six hundred sixty-six. (Revelation 13:16-18)
We have now a system where everybody must have a World ID Number to be permitted to travel, buy or sell and make a living. That number is not the satanic beast number. We are called to delineate and have wisdom when we apply for a party membership as the other is connected with privilege worshiping the beast system. Like Hitler had a special black SS guard which superseded any court, government regulation and got a free visa card prepaid by the government for luxurious hotel resorts and advantaged access to food while others starved and could not get gasoline. It is special membership card from the world for peace party, which gives you unlimited privileges and access to benefits connected with the world dictator.
Witness #4 -
Then another angel, a third, followed them, crying with a loud voice, “Those who worship the beast and its image, and receive a mark on their foreheads or on their hands, they will also drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured unmixed into the cup of his anger, and they will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image and for anyone who receives the mark of its name. “Here is a call for the endurance of the saints , those who keep the commandments of God and hold fast to the faith of Jesus . And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who from now on die in the Lord.” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them .” (Revelation 14:9-13)
The Saints are called to endure the inequity starving rather to death as God reminds us that this short life lived like many millions previously in history lived no differently if you where slaves but the Saints has the promise of eternal rest and happiness as your reward will follow. However if you sign up for the special beast number of privilege of the world peace party you are sold to Satan. When the fifth angel comes with a key to open the underworld releasing all demons like a resurrection from the hell-Heh dimension, they will waste no time to demon posses those who have the privileged number sign on their forehead marked by Satan. Now Demon possessed will experience internal horrible torture committing hideous crimes ending in death never be forgiven. In a time of total lawlessness, the Saints will be the only bright light as a witness to a total selfish corrupted society controlled by the prince of darkness in person resurrected Antichrist which is Satan thrown out of heaven. The Saints will be demonstrating God's commandments and unselfish dedication, helping the oppressed sick and dying to their very end too.
Witness #5 -
Those who worship the beast and its image, and receive a mark on their foreheads or on their hands, they will also drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured unmixed into the cup of his anger, and they will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. (Revelation 14:9-11)
Please do not join the UN peace party as you can never be in Gods presence ever.
Witness #6 -As I looked, this horn made war with the holy ones (Saints) and was prevailing over them, until the Ancient One came; then judgment was given for the holy ones of the Most High, and the time arrived when the holy ones gained possession of the kingdom. (Daniel 7:21-22)
There will be persecution for those not joining the world peace party, which will be similar to how the Nazi Party had its extermination camps for those who opposed them.
Witness #7 -
He shall grow strong in power, cause fearful destruction, and shall succeed in what he does. He shall destroy the powerful and the people of the holy ones [Saints]. (Daniel 8:24)
The Catholic Bible includes other books that report events from the times after the First Temple destruction. There I read the Hanukah story of a Jewish father with 7 sons. A Syrian Hellenistic general, bent on converting his family to a Greek god, asked the father to eat pork and bow to the emperor’s signet. The father refused and watched as one by one of his sons are tortured and killed in front of his eyes. On the end, he too was tortured a horrible way and died to break his will. This family is probably at the most holy place in heaven, the Yod dimension, the highest a mortal can aspire to just beneath the Throne of the universe in a room only for the special Saints assembled. [Revelation 6:9]. Now let’s be encouraged and read about the Good News - each major point having another 5 witnesses.
Witness #1 -
As I watched, thrones were set in place, and an Ancient One took his throne, his clothing was white as snow, and the hair of his head like pure wool; his throne was fiery flames, and its wheels were burning fire.
A stream of fire issued and flowed out from his presence. A thousand thousands served him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood attending him. The court sat in judgment, and the books were opened.
I watched then because of the noise of the arrogant words that the horn was speaking. And as I watched, the beast was put to death, and its body destroyed and given over to be burned with fire. As for the rest of the beasts, their dominion was taken away, but their [Saint] lives were prolonged for a season and a time . As I watched in the night visions…
From Daniel’s perspective a “Time” is one year and “Season” is three months. Counting back one year and 3 months from 21 December 2015, we get to September 2014, which heralds the 3 Woes in Revelation. That is the worst time of God’s Wrath being poured out. The Good News is the Saints’ lives are prolonged.
Witness #2 -
I saw one like a human being coming with the clouds of heaven. And he came to the Ancient One and was presented before him.
To him was given dominion and glory and kingship that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him.
His dominion is an everlasting dominion that shall not pass away, and his kingship is one that shall never be destroyed. (Daniel 7:9-14)
When we face difficult times and death look ahead where it ends 17 September 2015. An overpowering world government, totally atheistic, will end with a cosmic spectacle never experienced on this globe - Jesus Christ coming in unspeakable glory with his army and Saints to establish his kingdom on earth.
Witness #3 -
I saw one like a human being coming with the clouds of heaven. And he came to the Ancient One and was presented before him. To him was given dominion and glory and kingship that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that shall not pass away, and his kingship is one that shall never be destroyed. (Daniel 7:13-14)
But the holy ones [Saints] of the Most High shall receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever—forever and ever. (Daniel 7:18)
We have two witnesses [+one] mentioned “forever” to have total assurance of the inheritance given to the Saints.
Witness #4 -
At that time Michael, the great prince, the protector of your people, shall arise. There shall be a time of anguish, such as has never occurred since nations first came into existence. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone who is found written in the book. Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. [3018 AD Second Resurrection HANS witness.]
Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.
But you, Daniel, keep the words secret and the book sealed until the time of the end. Many shall be running back and forth, and evil shall increase.” (Daniel 12:1-4)
The final orchestra of God’s Plan for Humanity will resound with the hope of all the Saints to be resurrected in the Jod dimension, reborn beautiful like a butterfly to meet and join a resurrection party unimaginable with billions like-minded believers and family reunited to worship the Lamb wounded for us.
Witness #5 -
Then I saw thrones, and those seated on them were given authority to judge. I also saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their testimony to Jesus and for the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection. Over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him a thousand years. (Revelation 20:4-6)
The mortal survivors and Jewish people will repopulate the earth under a godly government to continue a thousand years in peace. To belong to that peace party, I would recommend.
I have given you seven (7) witnesses for the Bad News and five (5) witnesses for the Good News, which makes it certain as 7 + 5 = 12. In HANS 12 = the letters Yod (10) + Beth (2), which is one number of perfection or complete foundation. If theologians disagree, they have bought into Satan’s lie and will likely loose their reward, or worse, standing outside like the five virgins not having enough oil and the Bridegroom saying, “Away. I do not know you.”
The one who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus! (Revelation 22:20)
The following section is taken from Chapter 12 of my previous book, Asteroid Answers to Ancient Calendar Mysteries:
I would like to end my booklet with some ideas worth mentioning not preached in church. They are like pearls found in the ocean here and there. It is for those people who enjoy reading from a dual railroad perspective that connects science with the Christian religion, which gives us a much broader perspective of the world we live in.
Studying the various mysteries clocks of the Hebrew, Chinese, Aztec and German Himmelsscheibe exhibited in museums around the world, I noticed some interesting parallels with the Hebrew Rosetta Stone correlation and the Christian perspective. In this section we will review some amazing resemblance of three cultures which are continents apart, do not share languages, predating 1,000 years to each other but connecting with the records of Genesis and Bible prophecy. Please, you be the judge if these coincidences are valid or credible as they logically align themselves. These unexplainable associations seen from different angles show to me a cosmic design structure and prove that the prophesied Apocalypse 2008-2015 will arrive on schedule because they behave like gears in a clock that mesh.
To date historic events imbedded in an ancient calendar cycles either exist by chance or were imbedded by an extra terrestrial intelligence as no human could have invented to relate each to other so precisely. If you are a serious thinker, it would be very helpful to acquainted yourself with the Hebrew Alphabet Number system as published in my first Babushka books, if not, much presented may be difficult to make sense to you in this chapter.
It is like Dr. Albert Einstein explaining mathematics of unknown laws to those who would rather go fishing: one has to be interested to attend some of his lectures and learn new things. I can understand the position of secular scientist being willfully ignorant, but such excuse should not exist for Christians who confess to have the Holy Spirit to guide them. Jesus said watch for signs. Each person must check it out for himself. You do not want to be misled and make wrong decisions for your family.
Therefore, evaluate what is presented here with a 12 o’clock cuckoo clock date of 2008-2015, which could mean that we already may have run out time. Most are not prepared for survival because they discount the Bible or trust ignorant theologians teaching an old time religion escape doctrine. Those who do so will perish with him, which will be globally seen on TV. The biggest obstacle in understanding prophecy comes from two major doctrines taught in many churches. If we want to understand pearls buried in the Bible Ocean, it would help to investigate where so many church leaders went wrong in understanding the Bible. Because the clock cycles of an apocalypse date are too close, there is no time to find another church.
Historically, we see much misuse of the Bible. Many wars were fought over religious interpretations of the Bible, which even in our modern times remains confusing. Just checkout how many denominations are in the yellow pages of the telephone directory. No wonder that monorail theologians have started so many churches. We can only blame ourselves for that confusion. The average person is too busy making money to study the Bible and has left it up to theologians to tell him what it says.
Through a series of six interrelated Babushka books, I put a lot of facts on the table for you to review using your own common sense as led by the Holy Spirit. I call them my Babushka books because they represent concepts found in the Bible that are also found in science and physics, which is the basis for my dual-rail track railroad analogy. Russian Babushka dolls go from large to small with the littler ones nested inside the bigger ones. They look alike, but their scaled size makes them different. Truth in the Bible is similarly laid out in scaled proportions like the egg-shaped Babushka dolls. When we study the unfolding of God’s plan in history and apply it to prophecy, we find identical concepts embedded in Scripture in which the patterns of chronological events are replicated like a smaller egg shows the same design of the bigger egg - only on a smaller scale of size. Applying this principle is one of the most important tools of Bible research. It gives us assurance in an interpretation of Bible prophecy. A smaller Babushka doll/egg must conform to the larger one in its pattern.
Thus, we need to know how each prophetic section of the Bible relates to the overall plan of God for humanity because all aspects of prophecy need to work together within the purposes for God’s creation and how He sustains it through the laws of science. Otherwise, it is easy to come to false interpretations. The Hebrew Alphabet Number System is also very helpful in identifying questionable dogmas preached in many churches, but unfortunately most theologians know little about Jewish culture. Jews wrote the Bible, and Bible teachers should learn about their culture to understand how they think. My books also go from larger to smaller or different scope. I use the same principles in my Bible analysis that I learned from my years as an inventor solving technical problems with new approaches in applied science.
I started out just to write one book with a little different approach for those living in cultures where the Bible is forbidden or access is limited. My one little book has grown to a series of six. Like the Russian Babushka eggs, they go from large to small. The first two books of my Babushka series reconstructed God’s plan for humanity through history and prophecy. They created a stir among monorail theologians. This third book confronts them with yet another Babushka look at the clock gear cycles embedded in the Bible. It presents a totally new approach to understanding what the past was like by asking and answering some direct cause and effect questions about time, calendars and ancient clocks that mystify scholars. This book contests the foolishness that has come to dominate monorail science found on university campuses as well as once again raising a lot of dust with monorail theologians not a balanced system to establish doctrines.
Sensing their conflict when seeing a date for the apocalypse, I discovered that ancient time was measured differently from today’s Gregorian calendar, which would make any historical or prophetic projection faulty if not converted to our present calendar system. Scientists are perplexed by the many clocks exhibited in museums. With this third Babushka book, they have an opportunity to discover how they work and why they were made. For those Christians who do not believe that the apocalypse can be dated, now they can check out my third Babushka book from the perspective of ancient clock gear cycles embedded in the Bible.
Two fundamental blockages to understanding the Bible rose to a mountaintop too big for many pastors to get over or around. I do not understand why theologians rely so heavily on only one quote from the Bible that they misplace in the context of God’s plan. “No one knows the time,” they say and forget the hundreds of other Bible verses in conflict with their dogma. Their seminars are so one-sided that we should teach them some courses in science - especially how clocks work. It would help them to understand better God’s plan for humanity. Then the issue of trying to date prophecy would not be a problem. They would recognized that the Bible also says that “the wise will know” the timing of the last days instead of reacting like the Middle Age’s inquisition that suppressed knowledge and distorted the Bible.
Church pastors’ opinions are usually connected with financial reasons: they sell messages of comfort to be successful in meeting the inflated budgets of another building project. To give assurance to the faithful, they tell church members that the coming apocalypse is meant for others, and that they will escape these prophesied hard times on earth by being taken away, or “raptured,” by Jesus at a secret appearance only for the church. Playing church will end soon. The years of 2008-2015 are advertised on the Internet as a modern-day Jonah announces God’s coming judgment of a rebellious human civilization.
Others misuse Bible prophecy to gain followers who don’t check out the Bible for themselves. For instance, let us look back in history at “Toronto Laughing Spirit” phenomenon in the mid-1800s when the rapture theory got started. Then we will follow the trail to see terrible examples of misled pastors like Jim Jones church or David Koresh assembly expounded prophecy to many followers to end in death with families and children. These few examples of how the average person has suffered due to biblical ignorance should tell us that pastors taught Middle Ages theology in the seminaries can mislead us grossly in the wrong direction; therefore, we need to study the Bible for ourselves, which is not too difficult if you can read.
Today, many gullible Christians still adhere to a pre-tribulation rapture concept invented 150 years ago by a little girl in England that was later elevated to the highest dogma by a British scholar John Nelson Darby believed by many conservative Christians.
The pre-tribulation rapture dogma was really finalized by a brilliant engineer Clarence Larkin who was talented in making drawings of dispensational charts published in the 1920s. You can check it out on the Internet. These chronological charts based on the Bible were designed like clock cycles to depict God’s Plan for Mankind. It was the first attempt to graphically express what the Bible teaches, and they became very popular with preachers, teachers and the many church members. So my clock gear ideas are not original but rather build on top of existing ideas. As an inventor of many products, I do the same with technology as we build on what others have done.
One man’s knowledge is based on the foundation from others. Even the Aztecs built one pyramid upon another. But it is important to check out the underlying foundation if you want to have a house to last a long time.
Clarence Larkin’s Bible charts became the foundational doctrines still taught today in many American churches, but they do not compare well with the HANS perspective. For hundreds of years to the present, being Jewish has been a problem. Many in Western nations avoid Jews. But Jews wrote the Bible, and because of that basic fact, we should pay a little more attention to their culture when reading it.
When we study writings from a Jewish author, like Revelation in the Bible, we should become accustomed to reading it with a historic Jewish mindset and not with modern Western thinking. Originally, I believed in Larkin’s cycle interpretations, but during those years, I was not educated in Hebrew thinking. I only recently discovered that his and my belief system was in error when I compared it with the Jewish festival and fast days as well as the Hebrew Alphabet Number System (HANS).
When I discovered the Hebrew Alphabet Number System, I noticed that the pages of Revelation were mixed up chronologically. Working through the big Chapter 12 of my third Babushka clock book surprised me greatly which caused a re-look at the whole Bible, especially prophecy, from a dual rail perspective of the Hebrew and Christian traditions.
So I investigated Clarence Larkin’s charts more closely, and focused on the dual rail track Hebrew perspective revealed his many errors. The pre-rapture theory error comes from dispensational charts adopted by mainline fundamental churches has lulled a majority of Christians with an escapist dream poorly documented by Bible verses; nevertheless, its plausible story became very popular because it promises a getaway from prophesied troubles meant for others. In time, the rapture theory lulled many Christians into a comatose state lacking the urgency similar to what moved Noah and his family to build the ark. Most Christians are not prepared for the apocalypse spiritually or physically and therefore may not survive it. It is like the person who refuses to rouse himself and get out of the burning house when a fireman shouts “fire.”
Christians ignore the present warning call about the apocalypse coming in 2008-2015 because their pastors teach the comforting opinion of being raptured before the fire reaches them. Because of that, many will just keep on comfortably sleeping in church rather than listen to an unpopular Jonah-like message. Furthermore, expensive church building expansion programs continue and grow as if the Apocalypse will never come – though all signs are that it will occur shortly.
Look at the nightly news. It is full of financial disasters, stock market crashes, deadly terrorist attacks, increasing persecution of Christians and millions dying daily of starvation, disease and violence. Sadly, history is going to repeat itself with another, much larger event like “Toronto Laughing Spirit,” Jim Jones’ cool aid or the burning fires that consumed David Koresh’s followers – all events reported on TV.
For another analogy, it is as if these millions of misled Christians believe in the theory of an unsinkable boat. Instead of proving what is true by researching the Bible for themselves, they feel better trusting in the majority’s popular big boat of a theory, and just like the Titanic, they likewise will sink in the ocean being mislead by an old-fashioned tribulation dogma and perish.
Many pastors and theologians will not even look beyond the cover of my books with their seemingly strange Hebrew customs and holidays discussed in Scripture. If they did, they would discover Bible cycles corrected to our Gregorian calendar, which explain future dates accurately revealed. The Jewish customs, language and teachings about their holy and fast days became the keys to decipher prophecy in the proper sequence.
Of course, many have previously announced dates for the Second Coming of Jesus and missed their dates because they did not understand the evidence from the ancient bronze-gold clocks that prove how calendars found around the world have changed over the length of human history due to changes in the earth’s rotational axis. Thus, the past prophetic predictions were way off for understandable reasons and disappointed many.
So why reject new discoveries from science about the Bible without even reading what is stated? Especially when those past errors were addressed with new information of multiple, independently parallel historic and scientific proofs?
It is difficult to convince pastors to change what they think for many reasons. I recommend that each of us investigate the Bible for ourselves and establish a faith anchored in the solid rock of Christ instead of unsupported opinions – even if taught by respected preachers. We shouldn’t stick ours heads in the sand like an ostrich when danger approaches, and the apocalypse has already started - whether my specific dates are correct or not.
To many it is both amazing and shocking to discover that neither the word “rapture” nor the doctrine/teaching of a “secret rapture” is founding any Bible translation. Moreover, most theologians agree that it is not even mentioned in any Christian literature prior to the year 1830. Dave MacPherson, author of The Unbelievable Pre-Trib Origin, reveals that the “rapture” teaching was born in England during the mid-1800s. MacPherson’s research found that a Church of Scotland minister named Edward Irving was the first to preach the “rapture gospel.”
Just how the rapture theory occurred to Irving is an intriguing facet of modern churchianity’s history. Irving held some eccentric positions on the use of spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues and prophesying. He contended that these gifts were for the present day church and had quite a few followers of his radical notions. However, when chaotic disturbances arose in Irving’s services during the manifestations of these “gifts,” the Church of Scotland took action, dismissing Irving from his position as a minister in 1832. The ultimate result of Irving’s dismissal was the formation of the Catholic Apostolic Church, which still exists. Irving’s movement grew and became the basis of modern day Pentecostalism.
The natural evolution of this movement has resulted in the recent emergence of the rapture theory, which has seduced and mislead more than a few well-intentioned people. During one of Irving’s sessions in 1830, a young Scottish girl named Margaret MacDonald fell into a trance. After several hours of visions and prophesying, she revealed that Christ’s return would occur in two phases, not just one. Christ would first come secretly, being visible only to the righteous, then He would come a second time visible to all in order to execute God’s wrath on the unrighteous nations.
This secret rapture was promoted by Irving. He also claimed to have heard a voice from heaven commanding him to teach it. Some modern researchers submit that Irving’s speculations on the rapture were influenced by writings of the Spanish Jesuit, Lacunza. He had translated Lacunza’s book into English under the title, The Coming of the Messiah in Glory and Majesty, in 1827.John Darby, an Englishman and pioneer of the Plymouth Brethren movement became caught up in the rapture teaching of Irving. When Darby heard about Irving’s activities, he traveled to Scotland to talk with him and his followers about it.
It was Darby who developed the scriptural arguments to support the theory/doctrine that evolved. Darby’s depiction of the rapture theory became widely popularized in Britain and U.S. largely because of Cyrus Scofield’s Reference Bible. Belief in the secret rapture doctrine has become so widespread among today’s evangelicals and fundamentalists that many sitting in the pews assume that the teaching dates back to the apostles themselves and Jesus.
Regardless of whom one regards as the originator of the teaching whether Irving, Darby, Margaret MacDonald or a Jesuit priest - one thing is obvious: the secret rapture theory is of relatively recent origin. Moreover, it has no basis in fact, nor was it ever a teaching of the Jesus, the Apostles or the early church movement begun by the Messiah.
In examining previous failed predictions, one can see that they were based on wrong assumptions typical of monorail theologians. Being unaware of historic calendar changes like mystery bronze clocks in museums not deciphered would make any prophetic prediction difficult to forecast unless corrected to our Gregorian calendar. So it is no wonder that we have dogmas preached in church with little and unconvincing “support” from the Bible. I would like to mention one more doctrinal error. Cults believe whatever they want to postulate, which always started from a leader, rather than study and check out the Bible for themselves. It stands alone if we want to make it rule supremely in our lives. To shed some light on what lies ahead that is NOT preached in many churches, let us look at science and the Bible. Consider the evidence of those ancient clocks exhibited in museums as you try to delineate theological facts from fiction on this issue of “no one knows the time.”
Now we have another headline to upset one’s inner peace. Like Jonah from ancient times, my books have walked into New York City to announce its nuclear destruction could match the city mentioned in Revelation the millstone cast into the sea. They even quote future dates with some options as to what will be the correct alignment or overlay. This approach indeed conflicts with Larkin’s theory of “no one knows the time.” I have heard, “You must be nuts!” cried out loud against me for entertaining the idea that New York might disappear in a nuclear cloud so soon as my date.
Therefore, read the Bible from the perspective of another rail to set in order the chronologically mixed up pages of Revelation. As straightened out, Revelation correlates well with corrected ancient clocks and calendars not yet deciphered by accepted researchers due to their evolution-based biases like uniformitarianism. The new insights you gain could change your opinions about the Rapture and Clarence Larkin’s timelines, too.
These new discoveries can be dated if we accept our Gregorian calendar overlaid it with a discovered Hebrew Alphabet Number System, which is a lot better than any popular De Vinci code or Kabala computer calculated Bible Code as seen on TV. Or, you can keep on believing the vision invented by a little girl in England, redrawn by an engineer in the 1920s, an expanded upon by hundreds if not thousands of not very smart but moneymaking books found in thousands of bookstores.
The crux is that in all those thousands of controversial voices to heard, God is left out. Only a few are interested in knowing what God’s plan for humanity has to say. Just wait a while and see the smoke arising on TV, and then, my friend, we may look for my six Babushka books to discover an apocalypse announcement, a wake up call from sleep that God has proclaimed for all to hear.
I hope that these Babushka books on the Internet will last a little into the beginning years of the apocalypse. Our electronic data systems are heavily dependant on satellites that will ultimately be destroyed. The Chinese blew up their own satellite with a guided missile in 2007 to test their capabilities. Future fallout from other satellite debris will at some point paralyze the most advanced military space technology and make modern warfare useless. This is not mentioned specifically in the Bible, but the Bible end the apocalypse with a projected asteroid strike. That asteroid is already in orbit and will plunge to the earth’s surface on 17 September 2015, probably into the Mediterranean Sea near the site of the last great battle of Armageddon.
When all is shaken out and sifted, we must ask the Creator for the wisdom promised to a few.
Go your way, Daniel, for the words are to remain secret and sealed until the time of the end. Many shall be purified, cleansed, and refined, but the wicked shall continue to act wickedly. None of the wicked shall understand, but those who are wise shall understand. From the time that the regular burnt offering is taken away and the abomination that desolates is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred ninety days. (Dan.12:9-12)
Some common beliefs need to be recalibrated. For example, Methuselah’s age marked by 969 solstices of the Aztec-Hebrew cycles in Genesis are converted to a more genetically possible age of 138 Gregorian years.
Daniel’s days need to be corrected to NASA calendar (1290 x 1.04555) = 1,308 actual days [365.24 / 360 = 1.04555]. The 9th of Av (25 July 2015) is the crossover day of the Third Temple destruction as measured from 9 Av 3017 with the Aztec-Antikythera (70 x 14.305678 Daniel Weeks). Or, [Times, time, + 1/2T] x 14.305678 from 9 Av 588 BC. All three dates intersect exactly to within 24 hours of Jerusalem time. Coincidence?
