Pro and Con 44
Allow me to compliment you. I still love your work (have just today found your latest Web page). And I continue to see you've been studying and listening to the Holy Spirit and that your work is a labor of love to reach others. The works WONDER-FULL. God bless you for it. I thank Him for putting the desires of learning, uncovering truth, and writing in your heart. Your His instrument.
In a peculiar, almost holy sort of way, I have excitement that I MUST learn and make your work an integral part of my Bible understanding for some urgent purpose of God....
My reply Thanks for all those nice things you said.
What seems to be urgent today is for the church to realize that the first Rapture may only be for the Bride of Christ, not the entire Body of Christ. See http://www.kiwi.net/~mjagee/bride.html
if you really knew the history of Christianity you wouldn't write such crap. Otherwise you'd be aware that 97% is plain forgery and or stolen from other, older religions.
We don't have long to wait to see if I am right. Whether I am or not, the Bible is true. God has not only given us his Word, but proved it is true by fulfilling his prophecies 100%.
None of it is "plain forgery and or stolen from other, older religions." Satan puts up counterfeits to fool people.
His reply, Re: Counterfeits
For one thing I haven't seen a single prophecy in the bible that has come true. Naturally, the bible is written in such a way as to allow practically any interpretation. While I glanced over your text I noted that you mentioned Luke. Now, Luke was (a pretty bad) doctor and a follower of Paul. He started to write his evangelium in about 61 A.C. He neither knew Jesus nor did Paul. As a matter of fact: none of the 4 evangelists ever knew Jesus, none of the stuff was written by anybody with personal first-hand knowledge. Many people believe that John was one of the apostles. In fact he was a rather crazy man with a pretty dirty mind as can be shown by his "revelations". As a matter of fact, they were written at about 115 A.C. Another fact is that the catholic church sorted this smut into the new testament only at around 600 A.C. Until then it was regarded as blasphemous!
Maybe you should know, too, that Peter resented and fought against Paul's teachings to his very death.
> None of it is "plain forgery and or stolen from other, older religions."
> Satan puts up counterfeits to fool people.
Rather empty words, aren't they?
Einstein said it: If you want to become member of a flock of sheep you must become a sheep first.
And definitely, it is, even if you don't want to think about it. It ranges from the holy spirit being Jesus' true father, which is a rather old hat considering that even Hercules was Zeus' son (and many other Greek, Roman, Egyptian or Indian godheads or demi-gods were fathered the same way) - but with Jesus that is true??? Even the idea of the trinity was first postulated around 160 A.C in Christianity, but was long known before, e.g. in Hinduism.
But, naturally, the way I know believers, you will stick to your beliefs. If, on the day - May 31, 1998 - nothing happens like on the many other doomsdays predicted by scores of would-be prophets - you will simply claim that you miscalculated something and start to set a new date.
However, it is not as simple as that. In the history of Christianity, Judaism and Islam, Billions of people were killed, maimed, ruined and spiritually damaged because of such prophecies, because everybody was made to believe that his/her faith was the only true one.
Think about it: There are about 100 Billion stars in our Galaxy alone. More than that number of galaxies exist. Most of them have planets, some of them discovered already. Many of them will bear life, many even intelligent life. We humans are nothing special. For nature we are easily exchangeable. A byproduct. And most probably the sense of life is just that: LIFE. If there is a heaven, it certainly has many gates.
Unfortunately, the bible was written for people like you. For excuse me, but it has to be said, people like you bring untold misery to humankind.
If you really want to know some truths, start to study the history of Christianity, like I did (and I studied Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism as well). The amount of falsification I found especially in Christianity and Islam was and is revolting. Suppression of documents, plain forgery, rewriting of historical facts - the list is endless. Just think of the first 'christian' emperor, Constantine: Fact is, he was a murderer who had most of his own family (and many others) killed, and started many wars - for power, not Christianity. Fact is, too, that even today he is considered a saint, because 'In hoc signo vinces' (you will win in this sig, i.e. the cross). Fact is, most of his soldiers were christians and he was, like many powerful man before and after him a shrewd psychologist.
According to Luther, you should not even be able to read or write: 'Women are half animals, half children. Let them bear (children) and if they die it doesn't matter'. Want to put your signature underneath?
...You brave enough to answer this?
Of course. I have the Spirit of God in me. He wants YOU to know the truth.
> Einstein said it: If you want to become member of a flock of sheep you must
> become a sheep first.
And Einstein believed in God.
Sorry, but I am one of the sheep, and Christ is my shepherd. I only pray that you too will become one of the sheep. The alternative is frightening to say the least.
There are so many fulfilled prophecies that one has to have blinders on not to see it. The mere existance of Israel is fulfilled prophecy.
It is too bad that you have allowed Satan to delude you. There is not much time in which to change your mind. I just hope you wake up after the Rapture. You will have to go through the worst seven years since Adam was put on Earth. I feel sorry for you. It will be a rude awakening.
Here is one thing you will face. You will have to make a decision whether to take the Marc of the Beast or not. Adam was given one test, to obey God. God said for him not to eat of one tree. During the Tribulation, man is to be given this test: will he obey God's word or take the Mark of the Beast.
God's word says, "And he (the False Prophet) causeth ALL (including Walter), both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man: and his number is Six hundred three score and six (666)" (Revelation 13:16-18).
You are seeing this fulfilled before your eyes today. See the attached files. When it comes time for you to make your decision, remember these scriptures.
"I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his MARK upon their FOREHEADS, or in their HANDS; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years" (Rev. 20:4,5).
"And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his MARK in his FOREHEAD, or in his HAND, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the MARK of his name. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus" (Rev. 14:9-12).
What is so terrible about worshiping the beast and taking his MARC? This False Prophet will be Satan indwelt, as Judas Iscariot was. Choose ye this day whom you will serve, God or Satan. As for me and my family, we choose God. We firmly believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour.
On the Day of God's Wrath (which I think is Sept. 13, 2007, the Feast of Trumpets), seven trumpets judgments will hit unbelievers on Earth. Believers have already been taken to Heaven to be with Christ where he is.
Then "the second angel sounded, and as it were A GREAT MOUNTAIN BURNING with fire (a piece of an incoming asteroid) was cast into the sea (the Mediterranean): and the third part of the sea became blood...And the third angel sounded, and there fell A GREAT STAR ("aster," asteroid) from heaven, BURNING as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters: And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter (poisonous)" (Rev. 8:8-10).
Wormwood sounds like a binary asteroid, like Toutatis. Both pieces will strike at noon. Amos 8:9,10 says, "I will cause the sun to do down AT NOON...I will turn your feasts into mourning" (Amos 8:9,10).
"Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the NOON DAY, and Ekron shall be rooted up. Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast" (Zephaniah 2:4,5).
"When he (the False Prophet) is about to fill his belly, God shall cast the fury of his wrath upon him, and shall rain it upon him while he is eating" (Job 20:23).
Civilization as we know it will be destroyed. So few men will be left that a child could write the number.
Ezekiel 38:8,18-20 tell us of that day. "In the latter years (of our age) thou (a united nations army led by Gog) shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel (prophecy that was fulfilled in 1948)....And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day (I think Sept. 13, 2007) there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence (transl. "sight" in Ezek. 36:31), and the mountains (the two pieces of the asteroid) shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground....And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain (lit, shower; a tsunami), and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the EYES of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD."
That is the day when the Sign of the Son of Man is seen in the heavens. Matthew 24:30 says, "And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory."
Here are a couple of things to watch for to know that the seven-year Tribulation judgment has begun. The Rapture has to come first, then a leader in Rome, maybe the Pope, and a leader in Israel will confirm a seven-year covenant of peace. I think that day will be the Feast of Weeks on May 28, 2001. When you know that this covenant has been confirmed, please remember what I told you. On the 2300th day, counted by Jewish inclusive reckoning, from the day the covenent is signed, the asteroid will impact Earth and the headquarters of the World Government and the World Church built in Babylon on the Euphrates River in Iraq, will be totally wiped out.
When you see these things take place, you will need to know how to get right with God. No religion but Christianity is right. Others are Satan's counterfeits to try to confuse us. None but Christianity is based on a risen Saviour. "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is NONE OTHER name given among men, whereby we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). "GOD WAS IN CHRIST, RECONCILING THE WORLD UNTO HIMSELF" (II Corinthians 5:19).
"God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever (you) believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God" (John 3:16-18).
Here is the word of faith, which we preach; "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved" (Romans 10:9).
"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they (and you) are without excuse" (Romans. 18-20).
I pray for your salvation, in Jesus' name, Amen.
Your web site gets better by the day. I was wondering if you are aware of the "Millenium Bug" that some computer experts say could have major worldwide implications even before year 2000? I can't help but tie this into the end time scene. A major event such as this could be another catalyst for a world system. Keep up the great work!
My reply Thanks. I'm glad you like my Web site.
I am aware of the year 2000 problem. I just hope we are out of here before that day.
Was looking for your opinions and beliefs about prophetic dreams. I've read through some of the links in your website, and lots of folks seem to be having "dreams" and "visions"...I don't want to doubt their validity...who am I to tell God how to do things...but so many of these dreams and visions contradict each other. Anyway, let me share my experience.
Last May, I had a very vivid dream regarding a great tragedy or sadness that would befall some dear friends of ours who we had not seen in several years. This dream came "out of the blue" in that we had not talked with these folks for a while, nor was there any reason for them to on our minds...yet I still had this very vivid dream. 3 days later, we found out that they had indeed experienced very tragic news. I was almost sick to my stomach for a few days afterwards realizing that I had seen their pain in a dream just a few days previous.
Since then, I have had numerous "apocolyptic dreams"...nuclear war, armed conflict, changes in the earth, fire sweeping over the planet, wierd mutations of people, I have had dreams about levitating or "floating" above the earth, and two dreams where I see my grandfather, who I was very close to, in the flesh (he died in 1978).... Please give me your opinion or belief about dreams. Have you experienced these types of dreams or know others who you respect who have? Your thoughts and opinions would be greatly appreciated.
My reply I have had three dreams of seeing a couple of people in Heaven, my husband's grandma and my daughter's boyfriend who accepted Christ, shortly before he was killed, because of letters I wrote him while he was in Viet Nam. I know these two are in Heaven because they both believed in Christ. Grandma was in a kitchen cooking with children all around her, very natural for her. The boy ran to hug us as my husband and I arrived in Heaven after the Rapture. We were walking toward the doorway of a huge building. In another dream, I saw him a few tables away as we were eating at long tables inside that huge building.
Whether they mean anything or not remains to be seen. I go by Scripture, not dreams. How can you be sure about anything else?
My third book, "Revelations 2000," just arrived. They are $6.99. Shipping USPO Book Rate is $2.00, Priority Mail $3.00.
...I picked up "Revelations 2000" about half an hour ago. There is a ton of useful info in "The end of the Age", and I figured it would be a crime not to buy this book as well. I'll give you the "official review" when I finish!
My reply I appreciate your letting me know. I got my box of books today, 12-12-97.
Incoming Email I think I found a new link to the "cashless society" webpage that disappeared. Try: http://www.apocalypsesoon.org/xfile-1.html
I question the validity of this webpage since I discovered that the information on barcodes is incorrect. I investigated the coding of UPC barcodes and the number 666 and the following is what I found:
This seems to be an urban legend that is passed around without evidence to support it. Please see: http://www.beakman.com/upc/barcode.html to learn how to decipher the bar code.
This gives an explanation so that anyone can "read" a barcode. The first code, middle, and ending code are all "101" and are placed in the code to signal the scanner when it should start, mirror, and end the scanning.
The signals (101) are not actually numbers. Even if they were, the binary number "101 is the decimal equivalent of "5". I have studied this carefully, and there is no way this signal can be made to equal 6. The number 6 is "110". This would look like ONE thick bar with a space. The UPC code is two thin lines separated by a space (hence "101"). You still can't get 6 even if you use the UPC coded version of 6 or its mirror. It is just not there.
I also visited an "urban legend" faq page, please see http://tcp.ca/Aug94/UrbanLegend.html
It said: " There is a widespread belief that bar codes can contain the 666 known as the number of the beast. The legend has affected some people so much that they refuse the use of a bar code scanner on anything they purchase.
The whole myth is thought to have come about because someone likely noticed that one of the separators in the UPC barcode scheme looks like the number six and that there are three such separators This gets cross-referenced with Revelations 13:16-18:
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads.
And that no man might buy or sell, save that he had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that have understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred threescore and six.
Bar coding hardware customer service people have assured me that questions about the biblical safety of their equipment come in fairly regularly. Computer coding experts reply that this is absolute myth. There is no way that the various light and dark bars in the pattern can make up the number 666 unless they're supposed to. And they're not. "
One must be very careful not to take what anyone says at face value without looking up the facts. That is a very dangerous way to live.
Thanks for this information. I will post it for all to see.
Thanks for all your openness toward qustions from fellow students of God's Word. Here I have a question that doesn't seem to be answered yet. When the Bride of Christ gets raptured at Pentecost, signifying the end of the Church age (?) and the rest of the Church being raptured during or after the Tribulation, because "They" were not ready for the first rapture, and the Wedding taking place after the first rapture, How can the wedding then take place without the Body of Christ?? It seems to me that all the church will be raptured during the first rapture, while a part of those raptured then will indeed be the Bride of Christ, who made herself ready and said: "come Lord Jesus" as Rev. says. However, the rest of the Body will also be raptured, otherwise the wedding at that time would be an impossibility. The people who show their unbelief through sinful lives will therefore not really be part of the Church, but only in "name". Like a lot of people who are not really believing in Jesus as the Christ, The Son of The Living God. Therefore they do not belong to the Body of believers. These might however become real believers after the 1st Rapture. Then the Church age has already finished and these people will be able to be saved, if they do not accept the Marc, etc., but they will never belong to the Church, or the Body, but their salvation will be genuine just the same.
Can you give me your thoughts on these matters please?
My reply I think that the Marriage of the Lamb takes place on the 2300th day of the Tribulation, right after Christ receives his golden crown, on the first day of the Millennium, not right after the first Rapture. As soon as the Marriage of the Lamb is over, the Judgment Seat of Christ is convened and the Tribulation saints are called to the assembly, thus completing the Body of Christ in Heaven. The Trib. saints seem to be the last foot born into that new world.
Look at Esther 2:16-19: "So Esther (meaning star, hidden, secret) was taken unto king Ahasuerus (meaning lion-king) into his house royal...in the seventh year (i.e., 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007)...And the king loved Esther (star, "The stars are the angels of the seven churches," Rev. 1:20) above all the woman, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the VIRGINS; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti (i.e., Israel, who refused to come when called). Then the king made a great feast..Esther's feast...and gave gifts...And when the virgins were gathered together the second time (i.e., Rapture II), then Mordecai (i.e., Israel) sat in the king's gate."

Incoming Email I've read most (all the articles, most P&C) of your web site, it's quite impressive and must have taken some time. Anyhow to come to the point; I would like to know what level of confidence you place in your conclusions?...
I cannot be 100% sure because I am not a prophet. I have just studied the scriptures as hard as I can go for over 37 years. Personally, I expect the Rapture on next Pentecost. I don't see another chance before the 40 years following 1967's Sign of the End of the Age. This is our last Sunday Pentecost.
As for selling the house, I am doing what we are supposed to do, occupy until he comes. I am waiting patiently as Philadelphians are supposed to do. In the meantime, life is as normal as possible. I have confessed every sin I can think of, and am ready, whenever it is.
