At some point in the future there is coming to the television screens of this world's people, great supernatural events never seen on this earth. Today's headlines concerning the Middle East, especially Jerusalem, point to the climax of world history as we know it. Jesus Christ is about to reclaim the government of the nations. Those who resist His return, will be rejected and destroyed. This sounds rather harsh, but keep in mind that for two thousand years Jesus has offered His love and forgiveness to all men. There is coming a time of justice and judgment for those who reject His grace. It is near!
Read very slowly and carefully the inspired scriptures in Revelation 14: 6-10;
(6)"And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, (7) Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come; and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. (8) And there followed another angel, saying Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. (9) And the third angel followed them saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, (10) The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb;"
Among many upcoming supernatural events, some would today say science fiction, will be the appearance of three angels who will manifest themselves for all men to see, no doubt on satellite television also. They will hover over the cities of all nations and proclaim the message of God to a lost world. They will cry with a loud voice and call people to repentance and faith in the soon to return Jesus Christ; they will point out to everyone who great Babylon (America) is; and warn all against taking the mark of the beast.(666)
Several years ago, Hollywood produced the sci-fi movie "Independence Day" which chronicled the events surrounding an alien invasion to take over the government of the earth. It very cleverly showed how the entire world united behind the American President, to successfully repel the invasion from outer space.
Hollywood, which is a major spokesman for satanic deception, obviously doesn't understand its role in endtime events and prophecies. Satan knows of the above prophecies of Revelation 14 and is preparing his version and ultimate counterfeit. He knows about God's angels, he even knows them personally and by name. They all used to work for him before he rebelled and was thrown out of Heaven. Those angels who followed Satan in his rebellion, will also in the future manifest themselves publicly, even before the television cameras. I know this is speculation on my part, but it follows the pattern of how Satan attempts to deceive people by producing counterfeits, including a counterfeit Messiah or Christ.
When the rapture takes place and Gods' true church is removed supernaturally from this earth, Satan will move in with his "great lie" to explain the sudden world wide disappearance of people. Part of the lie will be that UFOs came and took away all the "bad guys" and then the new agers will begin their celebration. But, to the unsaved Christians left behind, one of Satans' fallen angels will appear as "Mary", the Queen of Heaven. This fallen angel will proclaim that Jesus indeed came and removed all those Christians who were divisive and misread the prophecies of how God's kingdom would be established on the earth. "Mary" will call the religious world to unite behind the American President and the Pope to establish God's kingdom.
Today the Pope is heralded by the media, another satanic tool, as the world's number one Christian. When the rapture happens, the President and the Pope, who have not been removed by Jesus, will obviously not repent and admit that Jesus took the "good guys" and that they were unsaved. So "Mary's" message will be just what the doctor ordered. Together, they will fulfill the roles of the Beast and False Prophet of the book of Revelation. Their end is described in Revelation 19:20 as the first two inhabitants of the Lake of Fire.
With all these supernatural events on the radar screen, about to take place, beginning with the rapture, more and more people will become believers that truly "someone is out there." So, the final end game question remains: Will people believe in the returning Christ from Heaven or accept the emotional patriotic call to take the mark of the antichrist? Your friend, Jack.
