I am writing this in September of 2000, before I "disappear" from Earth.
By the time you find this website, maybe you've heard several theories about the people who have vanished. These theories might include alien intervention, cosmic disturbances, black holes, cataclysmic upheaval, physical detainment somewhere, etc. Whatever. But whatever you've heard is NOT TRUE. THE TRUTH is, we have been removed by Jesus Christ, to be with Him in safety. The Bible speaks SPECIFICALLY about this:
"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord." I Thessalonians 4:16-17
Christians who have preceded us in death are also with us, and we are all very much alive and well in the protective presence of Jesus. But YOU are still on Earth. What is your future? The Bible tells us that following the "disappearance" or the Rapture (as we call it) there will be a time of great peace. Maybe you're just curious about our disappearance, but not in any immediate danger. Well, not yet. The peace is temporary.
In a short time (within a few months or up to three years) there will be devastation and horror such as the world has never known. It may start slowly with increasing ecological disasters, diseases, violence, changes on the earth and in the skies. And finally: The Mother of All Wars.
If you're reading this during the preliminary peaceful era, maybe you've heard that those who "disappeared" had hindered the peace and were therefore "removed." PLEASE DO NOT BE DECEIVED BY THIS! The DECEIVER is promoting this lie, and he will destroy you in the end. He will also point out that many Christian churches are still full of people (whom I suspect will be aligning themselves together saying that those who "disappeared" were the troublemakers, hindering the peace). You WILL NOT be told of the churches which are nearly empty. Christian faith is a matter of the heart, always has been.
The Deceiver is the Antichrist, and some call him the Beast. Hitler was a type of antichrist, although a poor imitation of the final Antichrist. Think about it -- Hitler brought Germany out of chaos and depression into a time of GREAT PEACE AND PROSPERITY -- but then WAR AND GENOCIDE followed swiftly! You are facing the same outcome, but multiplied a million times over. And just as Hitler forced all people to be "identified" so will the Antichrist, with some kind of mark or device in the hand or the forehead. No one will be able go anywhere or do anything without this Mark. But you MUST NOT TAKE THE MARK UPON YOURSELF -- for you then align yourself directly with the Antichrist.
You have only one hope, and that is Jesus himself. He loves you like no one ever has or ever will. He knows EVERYTHING about you and loves you anyway. He gave His very life for you, no matter who you are or what you've done. Talk to Jesus in prayer. ASK HIM IF ALL THESE THINGS ARE TRUE! Ask Him if He really is your Savior -- did He really die for you and are you completely forgiven of everything if you believe in Him?
Even if you have trouble believing in Jesus, just tell Him that! Ask Jesus to help you to BELIEVE. He knows your heart, your cares, your worries, your troubles, and He loves you. He knows your future, what will soon be coming upon you, and HE ALONE WILL BE THERE, RIGHT WITH YOU!! You can trust Jesus, "for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee." Hebrews 13:6
Please -- just talk to Him. Jesus is the ONLY WAY, the ONLY TRUTH, the ONLY LIFE. God bless you, my friend. I hope to meet you in Paradise.
