Do Look Up

Matthew 24:32-44

http://gbcdecatur.org/sermons/DoLookUp.html

New Age guru Barbara Marciniak claims to have received transmissions from aliens (higher or ascended beings) who have stated through her that there is coming a time when upwards of 20 million people will be taken off the planet “in a twinkling of an eye.” Other folks have written about these claims from other New Age luminaries.

What is fascinating is that while people within Christianity argue about the plausibility and possibility of the Rapture, many within the New Age movement have no difficulty with it at all. Of course, they believe that while those who keep this planet from evolving to the next level (us Christians) will be removed from the planet, the New Agers will be taken to another sphere within the spiritual realm where they can reconnect with loved ones who have died before them. If one did not know better, it would certainly seem like these New Age gurus were preaching about the Rapture. They are not, as far as they are concerned. They are preaching about an event that will take place by visiting aliens to rid the planet of the forces that hold back its development. According to these leaders, this will all happen in an instant.

Sounds like the Rapture to me, but of course, the interesting part is that it is the Rapture according to the New Age. It seems to me that Satan knows full well that this event will occur in God’s timetable. Because he knows it will occur, he is preparing for it by lying about it. He is not denying that it will happen. He is simply giving it another meaning, or reason as to why it will be happening.

The lie Satan has provided to his New Age followers is that the presence of these individuals is keeping the earth from progressing. Now, while Christians are arguing about whether the Rapture is real or not, Satan is presenting it as a coming literal event. This event will remove the Christians so that this planet can get on with growing.

I believe firmly that this is why so many alien or UFO movies have had people taken away. I also believe that this is why since the first cases were made known in modern times (1947, I believe), that the people were returned and left behind to talk about abductions, being taken TO the ship of the aliens, probed, etc. Some have even spoken of seeing new worlds.

The reality of a coming worldwide evacuation has not caught Satan off guard. He has had plenty of time to work to explain this coming event, which will be cataclysmic in nature. The destruction that will be caused by many millions of people gone in an instant cannot really be imagined. This is another reason why I believe Satan has soft-pedaled it, focusing on WHY people are going to be taken, instead of the AFTERMATH of such an evacuation.

The film “Skyline” opened this weekend and has a Rapture-type event in it on a large scale. According to information about the movie, NASA has sent a signal into the furthest reaches of space, further than anyone thought possible. Apparently, it got a hit and soon, aliens arrive to suck people off the planet. Once they are gone, the earth can then continue its natural evolution to the next spiritual plane.

If you notice the poster for Skyline there are people being sucked up to the sky and the waiting alien ships. Others left behind talk about how they just 'disappeared.' Notice the slogan of the movie: "Don't Look Up!" It's the opposite of what Christ told us to do, in watching for His return. I think we will only see more of this as time goes onward at least until the actual event occurs. The world is being conditioned to believe a great lie when the Rapture does occur. [some info. from Fred Deruvo]

2 Thessalonians 2:11

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

Is it possible that Jesus will return in our lifetime? It’s not just possible...but probable. He may come back before the wedding today! I'm not looking for the undertaker, but the uppertaker! I’m not a date setter, and I’m not trying to make a prediction. But we need to recognize the signs of the times, and I’d like to share with you some more compelling evidence that at any time now Christ could explode onto the scene, rupturing the sky and rapturing the saints! Can you imagine flying away? Can you imagine being left behind?

So, how will it happen?

What's going to happen on this earth when the Rapture occurs? Maybe you'll be riding along in an automobile; you'll be the driver, perhaps; you're a Christian; there'll be several people in the automobile with you, maybe someone who is not a Christian. When the trumpet sounds, you and the other born-again Christians in that automobile will be instantly caught away, you'll disappear. Wherever you are at you will leave behind only your clothing and physical things that cannot inherit eternal life. That unsaved person or persons in the automobile will suddenly be startled to find that the car is moving along without a driver, and suddenly somewhere crashes. Those saved people in the car have disappeared. Other cars on the highway driven by believers will suddenly be out of control. Stark pandemonium will occur on that highway and on every highway in the world where Christians are caught away from the world.
