Rapture and Tribulation
Is It Too Late To Turn Back Now?
Americans have been used and abused for so many years now and it just might be too late to turn back the clock, well we all really know it is and for many for some reason it is OK and they don’t worry about themselves or their families or friends or anyone. They will jump out to fight with anyone who really wants to protect anyone and everyone.
I have no idea when the information I have gathered was written but the latest date was 2006 so this being 2010 I would say things are much worse with very few even knowing all the facts. I had read some of this sort a couple of years ago and warned a friend of mine that worked around illegal immigrants and some legal also but who’s to know which are which since they can have papers made up of any type they want and our government knowing all I am about to say plus probably much we would not have dreamed of.
Not many people go to the Book of Revelation at the end of the New Testament to read and it is a very heavy book but people who say we are not meant to know just don’t want to try to tackle it. I recommend a study guide to help you in it and I loved Oliver Green who passed away many years ago. I find study guides just open your mind and spirit if you are Christian and if you are an educated adult you will not be brain washed and do not have to believe everything you read but it may lead you to what you really believe and men like this are not out to do you any harm.
My children were just toddlers when I watch the end of a show with Hal Lindsey and he was talking about tribulation. Well my husband nor I neither one had ever heard of it and we grabbed our bibles and followed him and yes, yes, it was there (children dashed to pieces before the parents eyes was the one that hit me hardest) and all these horrible things would happen and Hal informed us he would be back next week for more about it. I about went to pieces and of course I had to hide from my babies the shock and despair. I cried and prayed and talked to God and told Him that was what the bible said but I just could not believe He would bring this on me and my loved ones, no please. But I could read it was true. God loved me though, I knew He wouldn’t do that. Well if it was Him or satan, whoever, I was so distraught and confused. To make a long story short it was a very long week and I cried so much, knowing God would not do this, there had to be an answer.
Hal came on the next week and I heard of the rapture for the first time. Thank God, I knew He would not bring all those things on those that loved Him, even a disease so bad people would try to kill themselves but wouldn’t be able to. (Of course that could be a vaccine the government will come up with) Well probably many of you still even if Christians don’t know what I am talking about and many Christians even if they read don’t get into Revelation, but we did and this was our start of bible study together and most wonderful time of our marriage.
My understanding is tribulation will be for seven years. There are pre/mid/ and post tribulationists (those believing one of those three time frames when they believe the rapture is) and I would love to believe pre, (before) meaning Jesus will call us soon and save us from much that could happen and to me post means you went through it, so what good is that, although yes you are still going to heaven but I just know God will not put us through that with all my heart. God has never sent destruction on His. Not Job, not Noah and I am sure not us, although this does not guarantee there won't be much to overcome. I really believe in mid tribulation rapture because the anti-Christ would be revealed with the Church and Holy Spirit on earth (the bible says even the elect would be fooled by the anti-Christ if it were possible) and I believe as soon as we are taken up with the dead in Christ (Holy Spirit with us) the anti-Christ will go into the new temple of the Jews and claim to be Christ and that is the Jews sign to flee and I just feel it will all be at once.
One will be taken/the other one left
There are other scriptures where two men will be in the field one taken and one will be left; Math 24:40 another two divided; Luke 17: 26-37, some being in bed sleeping and some in the field shows different time zones; where this is not the Jew they will all be awake, the Son of man will be revealed to the Jew this day of destruction that are all fleeing. God won't be taking them but the Christian. Two may be together, the Christian taken the non-Christian left behind. Christians are all over the world. The bridegroom came and some were not watching, or ready lets say, so did not go, it really is simple. Jews with an earthly promise and ours a heavenly one. What an exciting time knowing you will soon be with Christ and all your loved ones! So down from the pulpit and back to the story..
Well, Hal got a little wild for me sometimes in his books like talking about UFO’s and I only laughed at that and he said he had no proof, he was not pushing it on anyone, just food for thought. (My husband went more for that than I did.) Now today what have we found, all these drawings and things you can only make out way above the earth before airplanes were even thought of, as far as we knew; all these things done and not one tool found, well... Many things leading to proof there was and probably is life elsewhere we do not know about but apparently our government has some ideas, well I think even Presidents aren’t allowed to get into that file but they just appointed someone to be head over that just in case. Actually we know they are keeping information of all that type hid from us. Then again what if it is satan and the rest of the fallen angels, these extraterrestrials? Hm. Well I don’t have any details on that but I found information that may be our beginning of the many diseases and wanted to share that with you. Even the Atheist would probably like to have this information.
See No Evil
Legal immigrants are made to have medical screening to make sure that they do not bring any contagious diseases into the United States. Illegal immigrants are not, of course, (why not?) and many are carrying dreadful third world diseases that we do not want. Many are highly contagious and will infect citizens that come in contact with an infected illegal immigrant. This has already happened in restaurants, schools, and police forces!
Did you know that? I surely didn't.
Malaria was wiped out from the US in the 1940s and just recently there were outbreaks in southern California, New Jersey, New York City, and Houston. Malaria tainted blood has been discovered in the blood supply, also!
Dengue came to be known in the 1950s, affects most Asian countries and has become a leading cause of death among children in those areas. Never known to be in the US, Dengue outbreaks have now started occurring in the United States!
Leprosy from Biblical days is caused by a bacillus agent; now known as Hansen's Disease. Forty years before 2002, there were only 900 total cases of leprosy in the US. In the following three years there have been 9000 get it and most were illegal immigrants.
It's creeping into the U.S. says Dr. William Levis, head of New York Hansen's Disease Clinic and is a real phenomenon. It's a public health threat. New York is endemic now, and nobody's noticed.
Hepatitis A-E is a viral infection that mostly attacks the liver. In 2004, more than 650 people got Hepatitis A at a single Chi-Chi's Mexican restaurant in Pennsylvania. Four latter died. Hepatitis B is one of the major diseases of mankind and is a serious global public health problem. It is estimated that 2 BILLION people are infected and about one million die each year. The new vaccine is only 95% effective in preventing an infection and will not cure a person already having Hepatitis B, resulting in lifelong infection, cirrhosis (scarring) of the liver, liver cancer, liver failure, and early death. About 1.3 million people in the US are of this writing infected. No vaccine is currently available to prevent Hepatitis C-E and treatment for chronic Hepatitis C costs about $1,500 per person.
TB kills about 2 million people each year, estimated between 2002 and 2020, approximately 1,000,000,000 people will be newly infected, over 150 million people will get sick, and 36 million will die. TB is a highly contagious disease. As the common cold, it spreads through the air. When infected people cough, sneeze, talk or spit, they spread out TB germs, known as bacilli. Every person with active TB will infect about 10 and 15 people every year.
The United States has one of the lowest rates of TB in the world. Mexico has ten times the rate of occurrence. One new strain is resistant to drugs. Treating a single case of MDR TB costs over $250,000 per person, with treatment about half of the patients with MDR-TB prematurely die.
Evidence of it has surfaced in 38 of 61 California health jurisdictions, and it could threaten the efficacy of TB control efforts. Infected ones were said to be four times as likely to die from the disease and twice as likely to transmit the disease to others. Not wanting to admit and label the infected as ‘illegal' or even ‘undocumented' aliens, the report notes that of the 407 known cases of MDR-TB, 84 percent were foreign-born patients, most from Mexico and the Philippines who'd been in the U.S. less than five years. The percentage of TB cases among the foreign-born jumped from 29 percent in 1993 to 53 as of last year.
Recently, there was an outbreak of TB in Oklahoma City in a hospital having an effect on thousands.
This is hoped to not be the new extensively drug-resistant XDR strain just being brought in by illegal aliens and which is currently impossible to cure at any cost! In any case, it would not be surprising to find that the source of the outbreak is an illegal alien working in the hospital or an infected resident worker who became infected through contact with an infected illegal alien since the TB rate for residents in the USA is very low.
Chagas Disease, widespread to South and Central America, is spread by infected triatomic bugs, known as the "kissing bugs," that bite people. Before unknown in the United States until fairly recently, is now thought that between 100,000 and 500,000 people in the US have it, mostly illegal immigrants. Since this disease is rather unknown outside of the illegal immigration community most doctors won't recognize it and the blood supply just started being screened for it. Most cases of it that occur in patients other than illegal immigrants are thought to be gotten from tainted blood sold by illegal aliens who had this before the blood supply started being tested for it as of August of 2006.
How many of illegal Mexican and Central American immigrants with HIV or AIDS is not known, mostly because researchers rarely ask about immigration status, but it is known that the rate of HIV infection among Latino women in California is about twice the rate of white women. At one free California health clinic, all of the women have HIV or AIDS. Most are Mexican or Central American "immigrants."
There is also Schistosomiasis, Whooping Cough, Guinea Worm, Cysticercosis, Morgellons and many more. All these diseases and pathogens, and a plethora of others that are not endemic to the US, are being brought in by non-screened illegal aliens who then spread them to an unsuspecting population. Are there illegal immigrants fixing your food in restaurants where you eat, using bathrooms you use, touching groceries in the stores…how many other ways can you think of? They are everywhere aren’t they?
Another hidden incident - Workplace violence?
An outbreak of hepatitis traced to Chi-Chi's Mexican restaurant, in Pennsylvania was inexplicably traced to contaminated green onions, not the most obvious cause, undocumented food workers who harbored Hepatitis. For the most part, Hepatitis is a blood-borne, not a food-borne disease. The Hepatitis outbreak infected over 650 individuals, caused 9,000 Americans to undergo immune globulin shots, and killed 4 people!
They say if Americans found out restaurants can commonly infect their customers from food workers, it would be a serious blow to the restaurant industry, so better blame the green onions. So let’s say the onions, from Mexico, were contaminated from fecal material containing Hepatitis. Did all of the green onions imported from there end up in one single restaurant, with no other outbreaks of Hepatitis anywhere else from green onions? Thirteen were restaurant workers who had Hepatitis and likely the source of the transmitted infection. I for one have stopped eating in restaurants years ago and have not had flu or even a cold in all that time, but as I have written here at Hubpages before that I am a Howard Hughes. I also before knowing all this have made my friend be very cautious although I seriously doubt hand sanitizer would prevent contracting the most of these!
Unions resist mandatory Hepatitis screening and vaccination for food workers and as I have said in another hub even if they wear gloves, what have they touched with those gloves? I watched one day and I saw and that was my last time. I will eat bologna if it comes to that and even that may kill me eventually but I think it will take awhile and be much less painful.
There are many people who know this and know these people should not be around food and even my lettuces and greens I wash with weak soap water and rinse many times but can that kill these types of diseases? If we screen legal aliens for contagious diseases, why are we allowing non-screened and contagious illegal immigrants to roam the country infecting the whole country?! Working in restaurants and in grocery stores, well...anywhere?
Aren't atheist surprised to see Prophesy fulfilled?
Well, everyone including the atheists better read the bible of things coming on this earth and I think I just gave you a small glimpse! I think we have our start and only the rapture will save us from the time it gets to be part of tribulation. I know Pat Robertson and many Christians do not believe in the rapture (I like Pat, you don't have to hate everyone you don't agree with on everything.) but I read that about not all will die but be changed in the twinkling of an eye and God gave me my answer years ago and he brings His people out of tribulation always as Noah and Lot. He may chastise us but He will not bring wrath upon his children He loves if they listen and obey...as Noah...as Lot. Why should we be different? (Since this writing Pat has come to believe I have heard!)
Be ready, it won’t be long. If it is tomorrow, the ones who’s souls are saved after Jesus calls us home won’t be part of the Church (the body of Christ) or Age of Grace, and will have to give their lives not taking the mark of the Beast to survive, selling your soul to him if you do. How do we know when the beginning of the seven year tribulation starts? Does it begin with a treaty signing? Does the bible give us that close of a clue? God has His limits too it seems of how much he will take of sin and destruction and things brought against His people and men in power trying to become Him. Which of course is still satan, never giving up. But we in Christ have no fear. This earth will never be destroyed as torn up as it may become but ours is a heavenly promise and we will reign and rule with Christ during the 1000 year Millennium. These are wonderful studies. These are wonderful truths.
A sound mind
I personally think the bible says there must come a falling away before the anti-Christ is revealed because I believe that means the Holy Spirit taken away with Christians but this is so close and so exciting I wonder why I spend time with anything else. I use all these people and their books to make my own decisions and I have no fear of being possessed or sold a lie when I have the Holy Spirit inside me for guidance and the bible for reference.
