Bible prophecy or science fiction? – – the coming Anti-Christ and the New World Order

Amidst the Coronavirus Pandemic which some say may last for several more years, here are some astounding events still to happen subsequently  (or in the very near future),  according to the End-time beliefs of some Evangelical Christians.

HISTORY’S GREATEST “SCI-FI” SCENARIO COMING IN THE NEAR FUTURE? – –  ENJOY THE READ:

by Norio Hayakawa:

 

One of the main characteristics of America’s Bible-believing, Evangelical Christians, is their total support of Israel through the belief that contemporary Israel   (since 1948 is the fulfillment of Biblical prophecies and that the U.S. must continue to support the State of Israel, no matter what.

A large number of these American Bible-believing, Evangelical Christians, therefore, believe that we are living the the “End-time” period of God’s prophetic calendar.

It is of utmost importance to point out some of the “End-time” scenarios as believed by the supporters of this view.

Here is the typical order of the prophetic events to come, as outlined by many of those Christians who seem to hold on to the so-called Pre-millenial, Dispensationalist, Pre-Tribulation viewpoints.

 

1) THE EZEKIEL SCENARIO

They seem to believe that this could easily begin with the escalation of the Middle East conflict, involving Israel.  They seem to believe that Iran and Syria will play a major initial role in this scenario.

They say that the Ezekiel 38 scenario includes the attempted invasion into Israel by major Islamic forces  (led and orchestrated by the northern-most power, i.e., Russia)  and will conclude with a miraculous Israeli victory.

(China will play a major role in a scenario 7 years later during the Battle of Armageddon)

They believe that it is suggested in the Bible that it will take 7 years to bury the dead from this unprecedented conflagration.  (The U.S. will be involved, directly or indirectly in this conflagration, they explain).

 

2) THE APPEARANCE OF THE ANTI-CHRIST

According to their belief, the Ezekiel 38 scenario will conclude with the mysterious appearance of the Anti-Christ who will create a superficial Peace Treaty between Israel and the Palestinians (and all Islamic confederation).

 

3) THE RAPTURE

They say that the Ezekiel 38 scenario could also conclude with a simultaneous, mysterious disappearance of millions of people from this earth, which will result in total chaos, confusion and fear among the global populace.

This, they say, is the “Rapture“.

It will be a mysterious, mass “evacuation” of the believers to meet the Lord in “mid-air“.

(The physical bodies will be mysteriously and instantaneously converted to celestial bodies).

In other words, “born-again” believers will be translated from one side to the other, i.e., from the earthly plane to the heavenly dimension and will meet Jesus in “mid-air“.

They say that the “Rapture”  (from Latin “raptare“, to “snatch” away, as in the eagle “snatching” away her baby when danger comes and taking it away to a safer location, etc.),  is a supernatural event clearly suggested in the Bible that has not happened yet in the history of mankind, but will be certain to happen, according to most of these pre-tribulationist, dispensationalist believers.

It will be an inexplicable, instantaneous disintegration of all atomic particles of each of our cells of our tissues, i.e., the instant conversion of our physical body into a spiritual, celestial “body” which will be swooshed up into “mid-air”.

In other words, they believe that “in the twinkling of an eye“, our physical bodies will go through a mysterious, sudden transmogrification  (a favorite word used by John Keel)  and will be lifted up to meet the Lord in “mid-air“. Our entire physical bodies  (the tissues, the cells will go through a sudden, inexplicable atomic fission-type transformation, they say.)

They believe that the “Rapture” is a conduit prepared by God for us to escape the coming global wrath known as the Tribulation  (comparable to the days of Noah, when God safely place a few faithful believers in the ark first and then caused the rain to pour down thereafter).

Pre-tribulationist, dispensationalists believe that this unprecedented event will take place simultaneously with the appearance  (the revealing)  of the Anti-Christ.

The Anti-Christ, according to these believers, will not be able to come to power until the “body of believers”  (together with the presence of the Holy Spirit)  is removed from this earth.

Only then, at that moment, can the Anti-Christ come into power.

According to these Christians, the “Rapture” will literally be a celestial wedding, the union of the bride  (the “church” or “the body of believers”)  and the Groom (Jesus Christ).

This “wedding” celebration in the air will last for 7 days, which could symbolically be equivalent to 7 earthly years, according to some interpretations.

 

4) THE ANTI-CHRIST SUCCEEDS IN CALMING DOWN THE STUNNED, CONFUSED AND PANIC-STRICKEN POPULACE – – THE GRAND DECEPTION

They speculate that when the Anti-Christ appears on global emergency TV news conference, many of these Evangelical Christians say that he would calm down the frightened people of the earth with his ingenious, well-calculated explanation regarding the sudden disappearance of millions of people from the earth; this could be when “UFOs” are brought up; the Anti-Christ could use some type of “extraterrestrial” intervention explanation.

(By the way, in the U.S., the majority of Fundamentalist, Evangelical Christians seem to hold on to the viewpoint that somehow the “UFO” phenomenon is “Satanic” or “diabolical“.)

These groups seem to believe that “UFOs” will play a major role in these future biblical prophecies.

However, some of these Fundamentalists seem to emphasize that only one-third of the entire angelic entities of the universe are demonic or malevolent or “fallen” and that the rest, i.e., the remaining two-thirds are benelovent or “good” angels.   They are all paraphysical extradimensional sentient entities that co-exist with us in the parallel dimension.  They are able to materialize and de-materialize at will.  Revelation 12:4 is the reference they seem to use.

There are some Fundamentalist ministers who state that the malevolent one-third are the ones posing as “extraterrestrial aliens” and are deceiving a segment of the population in the time period they describe as these “End-time” period of history.  It was Lucifer who first caused the cosmic revolt against God and took a third of the entire cosmic angelic entities to follow him.  However, they say that two-thirds of the entire angelic entities in the universe are benevolent ones that are personally protecting each of us from harms way, i.e., as “guardian angels”.

Some theorists even believe that if a global government of some sort  (the “New World Order”) is to be set up intentionally  (by force)  in the future, there are several ways to accomplish it.  Creating wars is one example, they say.

Creating other series of “crises” is another, such as manipulating natural global catastrophes, or even creating artificial ones.  Some researchers call this the “ORDO AB CHAOS” theory.

(They also point out that Henry Kissinger at one time suggested that should the world suddenly face an external threat,  i.e., from “outer space“ whether REAL or PROMULGATED, it would accelerate a cry for a global unified government. They say that Ronald Reagan and Gorbachev also had allegedly made such similar remarks, that if the world is faced with such an extraterrestrial threat, we will all forget our differences and be united as one to defend this earth from such threats.)

Some conspiracy theorists seem to pose this question:

Can the “world government” stage a deceptive, “alien contact/landing” scenario?   It is possible, they say, with actual assistance from malevolent paraphysical demonic entities themselves !!

If the secret government were to stage such a fake, “extraterrestrial” type of event, it would definitely be beneficial to them if there remains an adamant element of society who have always believed in “UFOs” and “aliens“.

In any case, Bible-believing Evangelical Christians seem to believe that somehow the Anti-Christ will come up with a brilliant, convincing explanation for the “Rapture” event and that somehow  (supernaturally)  the world will have a sigh of relief by his explanation.

 

5) THE BEGINNING OF THE 7-YEAR TRIBULATION PERIOD

According to these believers, this event will be the beginning of the 7 -year Tribulation Period  (i.e., the “New World Order” of the Anti-Christ, the first half of which will be relatively and deceptively peaceful, and the second half of which will be an iron-fisted rule of the Anti-Christ, who will declare himself to be God at mid-point).

 

6) THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON

Towards the end of the 7th year, nations such as China  (prophetically referred to as “Kings of the East“)  will challenge the dictatorship of Anti-Christ’s New World Order and will begin to cross the Euphrates and make a move towards the valley of Megiddo.

This battle, the battle of Armageddon, will be the final global battle.

During the climax of this battle, celestial forces led by Jesus Christ  (and accompanied by those who had been “raptured“)  will descend and will destroy all earthly forces.

 

7) A THOUSAND YEAR REIGN OF JESUS CHRIST FROM ISRAEL

Jesus Christ, according to these believers, will rule from Israel for a 1,000 years.

This is the Millenial Kingdom.

 

8) FINAL, MINOR REBLLION

At the end of the 1000 years, there will be a minor rebellion by the descendants of those who may have survived the Armageddon and continued to procreate, thus having physical bodies.

That minor rebellion will be crushed by God, these believers say.

 

9) THE FINAL JUDGMENT

This is the gist of the events to occur in the near future, according to many of the so-called Fundamentalist, Dispensationalist, Evangelical, Pre-Millenial, Pre-Tribulationist Christians.

Is this all wild, “science fiction“?

Maybe.  But again, no one knows.

Does it hurt to believe in this “unbelievable” scenario?

These Evangelical Christians seem to say that it won’t hurt at all to believe that if such scenarios could come true.

They say that they have nothing to lose by believing in it even if it doesn’t come true, but everything to gain if it indeed takes place, if one is a believer.

Yes, I am the one who wrote this article  (in the style of a “third person”)  because I also believe in it.

The beauty of the majestic Sandia Mountains in New Mexico, USA

(CLICK ABOVE FOR ENLARGEMENT – – photo taken by yours truly from Rio Rancho)

The Sandia Mountains are a mountain range located in Bernalillo and Sandoval counties, immediately to the east of the city of Albuquerque in New Mexico in the southwestern United States.  The mountains are just due south of the southern terminus of the Rocky Mountains, and are part of the Sandia–Manzano Mountains.  This is largely within the Cibola National Forest and protected as the Sandia Mountain Wilderness.  The highest point is Sandia Crest, 10,678 feet (3,255 m).

Sandía means watermelon in Spanish, and is popularly believed to be a reference to the reddish color of the mountains at sunset. Also, when viewed from the west, the profile of the mountains is a long ridge, with a thin zone of green conifers near the top, suggesting the “rind” of the watermelon.  However, as Robert Julyan notes, “the most likely explanation is the one believed by the Sandia Indians:  the Spaniards, when they encountered the Pueblo in 1540, called it Sandia, because they thought the squash gourds growing there were watermelons, and the name Sandia soon was transferred to the mountains east of the pueblo.
