|Vol. VI Number 47||December 8, 2002|
With the approach of Christmas there is a lot of great expectations about the coming holiday. There are many who are hoping and expecting the second coming of Christ, just as there was an expectation of the coming of the Messiah 2000 years ago. Many Jews were expecting the Messiah and were actively waiting for the Lord. On the other hand many of the establishment did not want to see the Messiah, or have anything to do with those radical believers in the scriptures.
This is the way that the world is today. There are many who are actively awaiting the coming of the Lord while the establishment would like to see all of the radical fundamental believers in the Bible go away. If you believe the bible to be true, then you believe that the Lord is returning just like he said. If you believe that the Bible is a book filled with good stories then you are not waiting for the coming of the Lord. The choice is yours. If the Bible is true we are living in the day and the hour foretold in the Scripture about the coming of the Lord. We are living in the day where the Lord will call his church home from the air. Is the description as written by the Apostle Paul so fantastic?
1 Thessalonians 4
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
Doesn't this sound like a transporter in Startrek or like the Philadelphia Experiment where it is believed that the US Navy transported the Destroyer Eldridge from Philadelphia Navy Yard to Norfolk in 1943. Of course the US Navy disclaims everything even stating that they have never had any interest in such technology. The ability to hide a ship with a cloaking technology and transport the vessel to another location would be a great interest to the military. When the Bible talks about us rising into the air through walls and ceilings is not beyond our ability today. In fact, all of the prophecies concerning the last days and the coming of the Lord are in place today.
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Most everyone uses online banking today through the Internet via MAC cards. We all see the time when the chip technology will be implemented as described in the Bible. Your dog and cat can have chips implanted for identification. These same chips can be used for people. Can you see the day when currency will have no value and you will be compelled to receive a chip to make all purchases and all deposits will be made by direct deposit with no currency transactions involved.
The Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission are both part of the same group looking for the elite to rule the world. Members of these groups include the U.S. President and the members of the cabinet. I tried to access the Trilateral Commission web site today but their server times out. These groups see the born again Christian and the Orthodox Jew as a danger to their world dominance. They presently run the world through the flow of finances and money to appropriate agencies, governments, and such. For instance they can build up a government to topple another. Look who created Saddam Husain. The U.S. created him to fight a war with Iran. How many other dictators have these guys set up? the final one will be the Antichrist!
