Imminent Rapture

As I explained in previous posts, the Bible tells us when to expect the Rapture. We are to expect it during a time that is somewhat "normal." The Lord explains the typical things going on at that time as "They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage" and "they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded" (Luke 17:26-28). He also tells us that the rapture will occur during a time of abundance. We know this because the Lord warns us that "hearts be overcharged with overindulgence in food or drink, and drunkenness, and cares of this life" and those things would cause some not to see that day coming. Since the Lord painted the picture for us of when the rapture/day of the Lord WILL come, we also know when it's not going to come.

Are overeating and overdrinking and the normal cares of this life indicative of a time of FAMINE? No. We see a time of famine drawing closer and closer by the day. Almost EVERY day now, articles like this one: "Warnings over future food crisis" can be found in the news.

Combine that with a plot to depopulate the earth down to around 500 million people (which means 5.5 BILLION have to be killed off)

combined with control of all the seed crops of the earth by the same people who erected the stones above

and saving the best for last:
Rev6:5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

A fourth part of the earth equates to .25 * 6,000,000,000 people=1.5 BILLION PEOPLE KILLED.

As a point of reference Hitler 'only' was able to kill off 6 Million.......So what's coming will be a die off over 250 TIMES WORSE than what Hitler did in WW2.

Does any of this ^^^^ sound like "They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage" and "they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded" to you? Sure does'nt to me...which means what? We see LARGE SCALE famine, shortages, war and death approaching rapidly, on a small scale ITS ALREADY HERE, if the Rapture is to occur sometime during a time of plenty, and ordinary days, it has to happen SOON....'ordinary' days are in VERY short supply. Time when people will be able to routinely overindulge in food and drink are in VERY short supply. Notice the bible does'nt instruct you to build a bunker, stock up on food, get your survival skills tuned up...none of that. What is tells you to do is WATCH and BE READY...when? NOW, TODAY, this very minute. Only those who are ready get to go. The bible says it better than I ever could:

<< Matthew 25 >>King James Bible

1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

We don't know the day or the hour, but we know when ITS REALLY REALLY CLOSE. 1 Thess 5:1 (NIV) Now, brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, 2 for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night (same day as the rapture-the righteous are taken out, then judgement/wrath falls, EXACTLY as it happened with both Noah and Lot). 3 While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 4 But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.
