As we wrap up this series of fictional scenarios of what being Left Behind after the Rapture of the true, born-again Christian believers may look like, we start to see the world at its worst. It is the end of the world as we know it. There are three types of people:
- New Christians — these folks realized what happened, believed, and surrendered their lives to Jesus. These also included the 144,000 “Jewish Billy Graham-type” evangelists.
- Followers of the Antichrist — these people were actually happy the Christians were gone. They are the godless, leftists, communists, socialists, Marxists, Satan worshipers, secularists, humanists, etc.
- Nonbelievers — they haven’t made up their minds who they will follow. However, they will have to very soon.
Here are the stories in case you missed one…
- Coexist Believers
- Orthodox Jews
- U.S. Government
- The Pope and the Vatican
- The New Christians – The Tribulation Force
- The 144,000
Again, this is FICTION. Any resemblance to any person living or dead is pure coincidence. Furthermore, no one knows the day or the hour of the Rapture. Only God the Father knows. Also, we don’t know how soon the Great Tribulation will start after the Rapture. The idea behind all this, is to get you to understand that you have to be ready. It could happen at any moment and you really don’t want to be left behind.
Phoenix, AZ, four years after the Rapture of the church.
Pastor Wayne marveled at the thousands of people who were praying simultaneously in New Christian churches all over the Americas — or what was left of them. He was extremely grateful to God for the second chance he received. The last four years were rough to say the least, and he was amazed at the fortitude his local flock had. He could see the hand of God through everything that was happening here and around the world. To the New Christian, it was still obvious that God was in control and that He could be trusted. We could definitely not trust the Antichrist and his New World Order. The world was now enveloped in totalitarianism. Our remnant needed to stay strong and keep the faith. At least that’s what he planned to tell them as he warned them of what was coming next.
As the prayer was winding down, he noticed that everyone’s forehead was glowing. Each and every person here had the mark of God on their foreheads. The sight of the seals gave Wayne an unimaginable peace as he walked up to the pulpit. He was in the main sanctuary of what used to be North Phoenix Baptist Church. They were linked to remnant congregations via satellite all over the Western Hemisphere.
“Let us pray,” he began. “Father, thank you for allowing us to meet like this connected with brothers and sisters all over the Americas. Father, open the hearts, minds and eyes of this flock and help them to understand what the Holy Spirit is trying to tell us. Help us to be obedient to your commands and help us to seek your will for our lives and our world. In Jesus, name, Amen.”
He took a deep breath and began his message, “We are the Tribulation Saints. John wrote about us in the book of Revelation. It was nice of God to give us a blueprint of what the future would look like. My one regret is that I didn’t take it seriously before the Rapture.
“I am also grateful for the Bible Prophecy preachers and teachers who recorded so many videos on YouTube. If it wasn’t for them, we would be lost and following the Antichrist, who is Satan personified. One of them, Jan Markell, summed up the times after the Rapture as the “6 Ds”….
“Let me show you this graphic. This is from Amir Tsarfati, another great Bible Prophecy teacher, who also was a Messianic Jew from Israel….
“It’s interesting that everything’s been happening just as the Bible, the Word of God predicted. The two witnesses have come and gone. The Antichrist broke the peace treaty with Israel after three and a half years. You notice that this graphic jumps Revelation 11 to 15 and 16. We are going through Revelation 13. So, there are more judgments yet to come.
“What’s really sad is that as predicted in Revelation 9, there are still people who refuse to believe…
“But the people who did not die in these plagues still refused to repent of their evil deeds and turn to God. They continued to worship demons and idols made of gold, silver, bronze, stone, and wood—idols that can neither see nor hear nor walk! And they did not repent of their murders or their witchcraft or their sexual immorality or their thefts.Revelation 9:20-21 NLT
“If you would turn in your Bibles to Revelation 13. By the way, wasn’t it nice of our Christian predecessors to leave behind all their Bibles for us?”
The congregation laughed and many replied, “Amen!”
Wayne began to read…
“Then I saw a beast rising up out of the sea. It had seven heads and ten horns, with ten crowns on its horns. And written on each head were names that blasphemed God. 2 This beast looked like a leopard, but it had the feet of a bear and the mouth of a lion! And the dragon gave the beast his own power and throne and great authority.
3 “I saw that one of the heads of the beast seemed wounded beyond recovery—but the fatal wound was healed! The whole world marveled at this miracle and gave allegiance to the beast. 4 They worshiped the dragon for giving the beast such power, and they also worshiped the beast. “Who is as great as the beast?” they exclaimed. “Who is able to fight against him?”Revelation 13:1-4 NLT
“This recently happened! Some overzealous rebel tried to kill the Antichrist. Doctors pronounced him dead at the scene, but then miraculously, he was healed! He fulfilled this prophecy! The “dragon” is Satan, who is giving the Antichrist even more power than he had before. Continuing…
5 “Then the beast was allowed to speak great blasphemies against God. And he was given authority to do whatever he wanted for forty-two months. 6 And he spoke terrible words of blasphemy against God, slandering his name and his dwelling—that is, those who dwell in heaven. 7 And the beast was allowed to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And he was given authority to rule over every tribe and people and language and nation. 8 And all the people who belong to this world worshiped the beast. They are the ones whose names were not written in the Book of Life that belongs to the Lamb who was slaughtered before the world was made.
9 “Anyone with ears to hear
should listen and understand.
10 Anyone who is destined for prison
will be taken to prison.
Anyone destined to die by the sword
will die by the sword.
“This means that God’s holy people must endure persecution patiently and remain faithful.Revelation 13:5-10 NLT
“My dear friends, if you thought it’s been rough since the Rapture, you ain’t seen nothing yet! We may not have the privilege of meeting like this for much longer. That’s why tonight’s service is so critical. Let’s go on…
11 Then I saw another beast come up out of the earth. He had two horns like those of a lamb, but he spoke with the voice of a dragon. 12 He exercised all the authority of the first beast. And he required all the earth and its people to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13 He did astounding miracles, even making fire flash down to earth from the sky while everyone was watching. 14 And with all the miracles he was allowed to perform on behalf of the first beast, he deceived all the people who belong to this world. He ordered the people to make a great statue of the first beast, who was fatally wounded and then came back to life. 15 He was then permitted to give life to this statue so that it could speak. Then the statue of the beast commanded that anyone refusing to worship it must die.
16 He required everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. 17 And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name. 18 Wisdom is needed here. Let the one with understanding solve the meaning of the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is 666.Revelation 13:11-18 NLT
“First, we haven’t seen this second beast yet. I’m assuming he’s the False Prophet. The New World Order will now not just be political, but religious, also. I have a feeling this person is that new Pope that the Roman Catholics chose after Pope Francis resigned. Notice that he’s been keeping a low profile. You watch.
“Everyone will be commanded to worship the Antichrist. We can’t. Don’t give in. Stay strong. Be rooted in the Word of God. Pray continuously, just like the Apostle Paul told us to do. Moreover, whatever you do, DO NOT take the Mark of the Beast! The world was primed for this with the whole COVID-19 vaccine issue. We had to present our hand or forehead to get our temperature taken when we wanted to go to the gym and, I hate to say it, when we reopened our church. We then needed proof of vaccination before we could go to the bank, ride on public transportation or travel anywhere on a plane.
“So, far, we’ve been able to do business with the government, but there will come a time when we will have to choose between getting the Mark of the Beast or dying. Personally, I tell you, I’d rather be hung as a traitor to the Antichrist than be condemned by God for taking the mark.
“Friends, God gave us the Book of Revelation to warn us. Consider this fair warning. If there are any of you listening tonight, no matter where you are, who are not sure if your name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, now’s the time to come forward and receive the true salvation of Jesus Christ.
“Let us pray. Merciful God, thank you for warning us of your judgment of the world and thank you for giving us a second chance to repent and accept the salvation that can only be found through your Son, Jesus Christ, who so generously gave His life so that we could have eternal life with You in Heaven. Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Protect us, guide us, provide for us. We trust you, Lord. In Jesus, mighty name, we pray and the people said… Amen!”
Several people stood up and went forward to surrender their lives to Christ. The next day when Wayne got the report of the night’s attendance, he was amazed that over 1 billion people watched and 3 million gave their lives to Christ.
Now’s the Time for Salvation!
Believe or be dammed.Charles Spurgeon
Folks, that’s what it comes down to. Believe or be dammed!
If you’re not sure if you’re saved or not, if you truly want to be born again and have the assurance of salvation, receive the Holy Spirit, feel His Shalom — a peace that surpasses all understanding, and get a 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven after you die, or that you won’t be left behind at the Rapture, which can happen at any moment, this is what you have to do…
