II Thessalonians 2:8-12
Once My people are removed from this planet, millions of people throughout the world will know why they were left behind, because they’d heard the truth so many times before. Some even will have heard it hundreds of times, but scoffed in unbelief. Such skeptics will be left behind because they refused to believe without seeing proof of My direct supernatural intervention in this evil world.
Multitudes will, because of the sudden Rapture, at last be convinced that divine judgment upon sinners is imminent. In their desperation, they will call upon the Lord Jesus Christ to redeem them from their sins. Yet many other sinners will only harden in their determination to resist Me to the end. Both repentant and unrepentant sinners will feel Me pricking at their conscience, convincing them of the wickedness of their doings. But I cannot force anyone to choose life eternal. The unrepentant will even resort to self-deception to deaden their troubled consciences. And once the initial shock of the Rapture begins to wear off, those people won’t have to look far to find alternative answers to soothe their nagging sense of guilt.
Some religious folk, who either forsook Christ, the true Way of Salvation, or never accepted Him at all will be enraged at Me for daring to leave them behind. These will be people who hardened their own hearts against the Light of the True Gospel for fear it would make them look foolish in the eyes of their pretentious peers. Such sinners try to dictate to Me what My terms for accepting them into heaven must be, and hope their so-called good works can earn them a place in Paradise.
Unwilling to suffer for the sake of the Truth, these unrepentant reprobates will choose to believe the lies of Antichrist, and will actually swear allegiance to him out of spite, so they will lose their own souls.
The Antichrist will be catapulted to world domination because he will preach what the populace wants to hear. All men are basically good, he will claim, and all religions are equally valid, so long as the belief system in question emphasizes a demonic kind of “love” which embraces all kinds of “alternate life-styles”. Antichrist’s religion will promote a false brotherhood and harmony among all men. The doctrines of sin and accountability to a Holy God will be denounced as negative obsessions which undermine the collective mental health of any civilized society.
To the delight of Antichrist’s disciples he and his equally wicked False Prophet will assert that the great error of the historical church was to lay undue emphasis upon the so-called sinfulness of man. He will inflame the passions of many by recounting the persecutions and inquisitions carried out in the Name of Christ to punish so-called heretics. He will remind his listeners that great church leaders even admitted the historical atrocities committed by organized religion and asked forgiveness, then extended the olive branch of friendship to their former foes.
The Antichrist will cleverly contend that the ones left behind are really the blessed ones, chosen to join hands with him in “building a more enlightened society”. He will say that the “Disappeared” merely merged into another dimension. In their ignorance, he will assert, they could never have adjusted to his envisioned brave new world of peace and harmony and would have been a source of disharmony in it.
Antichrist will be enraged by reports of a great company of Israelite men spreading my Gospel to the four corners of the earth. These divinely protected men will comprise a task force of 144,000 specially selected evangelists who go far and wide to convert sinners to Christ_a task presently assigned to the Church, which will then be absent from the world.
Tribulation believers who reach out in love to win the lost will be brutally persecuted for preaching the truths of sin and eternal judgment. They will refuse the Mark of the Beast identification system, for they will know that accepting the Mark would constitute allegiance to the devil’s Man of Sin and would cost them their souls. This Mark will be introduced in order to exert control over the earth’s population, and to monitor their movements via communications satellite. By means of a microchip ID implanted beneath the skin, a code number readable by a scanner will link the individual to a huge data base from which a staggering amount of personal information about him can be accessed. The duped masses will be convinced that this is necessary in order to curb rampant crime and prevent further outbreaks of world terrorism.
The Tribulation saints will be despised and reviled as parasites preying on the hard-won “peace” of the Antichrist’s society. They will be hated by sinners who desperately want to believe Antichrist’s lie that their feelings of guilt for sin are unfounded, and human nature is basically good.
When the Two Witnesses appear to preach my impending judgment, hardened hearts will resent being shown their utter depravity in the light of My holiness. They will report true believers to the law as troublesome insurgents and potential terrorists. Unable to take their frustrations out on the God in heaven Who sits in judgment on them, they will vent their fury on His earthbound saints.
In that evil day, millions will seal their testimony with their own blood.
