I didn’t want it to end….

The other night I was drifting to sleep and an image flashed before me:

My 9 yo son and I were standing facing one another when we were suddenly enveloped by a bright light. The light basically “swallowed” us. I felt so excited! It ended very quickly and I tried so hard to bring the image back but it wasn’t to be. Still, recalling it brings a smile to my face and heart.

I am reminded of the second verse of the beloved hymn, Blessed Assurance.

ALIEN LIFE BOOST: 2017 could be the year we FINALLY confirm ET existence, say experts | Science | News | Daily Express

Most of us are convinced that at least part of the antichrist deception will involve “aliens”, which are actually demons/fallen angels.  It will likely be the major explanation of the disappearance of Christians (the rapture). If you happen to read this after countless numbers of Christians disappear, do not be deceived.  We were not taken by aliens.  We were called home by Jesus Christ, to save us from the wrath of God that is about to hit the world. The Bible is true. People like me are not nutty conspiracy theorists or Bible thumpers.

Preterists in sheep’s clothing: the growing plague of end times deception by Susan Harris

“If you want to find out if someone understands Scripture correctly, ask them if they think Israel has a right to the land.”

In the 1980’s, when Hal Lindsey’s book, “The Late Great Planet Earth” was still popular, I was busy with high school and college. Frankly I wasn’t giving much thought to Bible prophecy. It was always in the back of my mind however – in a file marked “for future reference.”

And I believed I had all the time in the world. Most Bible prophecy was yet to be fulfilled: The coming of the Antichrist (who I believed would be a real person), the mark of the beast, the Gog and Magog war, and the armies that would surround Jerusalem – the burdensome stone.

As editor of the college newspaper, I covered Gorbachev’s reforms in the Soviet Union – Perestroika and Glasnost. The Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty was paving the way for the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty; “mutually assured destruction” would march into the history books.

I watched as the Berlin wall came down. I remember thinking, “Certainly Bible prophecy is a long way from being fulfilled. The Soviets are our friends; Communism is collapsing!” The world was destined for peace.

I had read the Bible as Holy book. I believed that my interpretation of its teaching and prophecy was revealed to me with divine guidance. Now there is a doctrine gaining steam in the churches, however, which wants to convince me that the divine guidance I’d experienced was all a lie.

Not too many years ago, I hadn’t ever heard of the terms “dispensationalist” or “futurist.” If anyone had mentioned “eschatology,” I would have thought it was a French word for the study of snails. And I most definitely had never heard of “Replacement Theology” or “Preterism” – the idea that all Bible prophecies that I expected to be fulfilled in the future had already been fulfilled with the Siege of Jerusalem and the destruction of its temple in 70 A.D.

Not until I was faced with a Preterist that held these beliefs did I even know they existed. Worse yet, this Preterist was starting a Christian organization in my area and revealed to me that his secret goal was to convince Christians that their Futurist, Dispensationalist, end-times ideas were a manufactured lie. (He is currently working to spread his organization to 300 U.S. cities).
