What Will You Eat?

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 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 threescore and six.
Revelation 13:16-18

"We know that you are hungry", says the bureaucrat.  He adds, "Just allow us to insert this implant and you can eat tonight. Don't you care about the needs of your family?  Surely, you  love your husband?" He continues asking, "How else will you care for them? Look, your husband has already sworn allegiance and worship to our great leader, won't you?"  Finally, he adds a measure of doubt and blasphemy united, "Apparently, your God has abandoned you, so how else will you survive?"  

This scene will soon play out worldwide as many will seek to fulfill temporary need with a decision of eternal consequence.  What will you do should you be here then?   What will you eat?  Where will you live?  What employment will you find?  All options will be totally controlled by the reigning new world order. Thankfully, there is another table spread with a heavenly dinner awaiting those wise enough to escape the nightmare to come.  You have an invitation today to choose that banquet, the marriage supper of the Lamb, rather than starve while risking eternal damnation.  

As the first 3.5 years of the Tribulation begin, apocalyptic devastation will be unsealed.  The Earth's supply of food and water will vanish,  animals everywhere will die, crops will fail, rains will cease as droughts prevail, lakes, rivers, ponds, and streams will dry up, and it will become nearly impossible to live without making the fateful choice.  The horses of the Apocalypse bring war, starvation, disease, and death following close behind.   Can't you hear their approach now? Men and women will either sell their soul for a mess of pottage, or willingly decide to trust Christ yet face near certain martyrdom.  

Some believe that they will survive by living off of the land; however, it is obvious that this will be an impossibility.  Many of the judgments destroy flora and fauna and nothing wild will be found to eat.  Joel, Hosea, and Zephaniah all describe the death of most of the animal kingdom, so what will you eat?  The choice to survive physically will come down to swearing loyalty to Christ or the Antichrist.  The Antichrist brings physical survival but destroys the chance for eternal survival.  Accepting Christ may make physical survival nearly impossible, but will guarantee eternal survival. There is another option available now.  It also involves a decision but more on that later.

For this system of total control over all purchasing power to work, there would need to be several key events to happen.  First and foremost, there would need to be a centralized global government to control all merchandise and all transactions.  There would need to be advanced surveillance technology in place to monitor the world's population.  All food production and water sources would need to be government controlled.  There must not be any way for one to adequately live off of the land.  It seems like a science fiction scenario were it not a present reality.

There are many indicators that all of this is now and has been in the making for quite a while.  Currently, one mega-conglomerate owns all seed production in the world.  Over 95% of the world's food production capabilities are owned by that one organization.  Furthermore, the seeds have all been genetically modified so that they will not produce enough food for consumption in just a matter of 2 or 3 years.  The un-modified seeds are being gathered up and held in storage facilities worldwide like the infamous Svalbard global seed vault.  Future farmers will be required to buy their seed from a one world source. Furthermore, the world is dealing with a lack of fresh water that will be compounded by the drought of the Tribulation and pollution.  

Add to this the death of animals worldwide and we have the complete recipe for the Mark of the Beast.  For those country folks in Canada and the US who think that you can just kill a few deer, what about the thousands that are dying currently?  Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease is currently killing large numbers of deer in many places.  In other places, bad management practices combined with an ever increasing predator population are clearing the forests of game.  Fish have been washing up dead on beaches worldwide for a few years with no apparent explanation.  Also, birds are dying in masses in many places.  These are but a foretaste of what is to come.  When you add the devastation of the Wrath of the Lamb, there will be no food in water or on land to eat.  Here are just a couple examples. 

These are but a few of the many indicators that the Mark of the Beast is nearing.  It will take place during that last 3.5 years of the Tribulation.  We have the capability to mark all people.  Surveillance technology is able to monitor people everywhere.  Satellites can read the date on a dime from space already.  The animal population is seeing huge die-offs worldwide.  Plants and trees are being hit with disease and death at unbelievable rates.  The time of the end that is a beginning is drawing near.  

While the world is reeling in chaos and men and women who have rejected the gospel are making fateful decisions, those who have previously trusted Christ before the Tribulation will be enjoying His presence after the rapture and at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.  You already have an invitation is that beloved verse, John 3;16.   "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."  If you want to escape that decision at the hands of the False Prophet's minions, accept Jesus today.  Do it quickly.  He is Soon2Come!

Today's Headlines


  1. (Yo, Soon2Come. This was seen on the www! Abe)


    Have you heard of the eccentric, 182-year-old British theory coloring the politics of American evangelicals and Christian Zionists?
    Journalist/historian Dave MacPherson (known as the "Pretrib Rapture Answerman" and the "Rush Limbaugh of the Rapture") has spent more than 40 years focusing on the origin and spread of what is known as the apocalyptic "pretribulation rapture" - a secret, invisible coming of Christ that whisks all "true Christians" to Heaven several years before the Second Coming in order to exempt them from having to be on earth during the Antichrist's reign (the "tribulation") revealed in the Book of Revelation.
    Although promoters of this endtime evacuation from earth constantly repeat their slogan that "it's imminent and always has been" (which critics view more as a sales pitch than a scriptural statement), it was unknown in all official theology and organized religion before 1830.
    And MacPherson's research also reveals how hostile the pretrib rapture view has been to other faiths:
    It is anti-Islam. TV preacher John Hagee has been advocating "a pre-emptive military strike against Iran." (Google "Roots of Warlike Christian Zionism.")
    It is anti-Jewish. MacPherson's book "The Rapture Plot" (see Armageddon Books etc.) exposes hypocritical anti-Jewishness in even the theory's foundation.
    It is anti-Catholic. Hal Lindsey and C. I. Scofield are two of many leaders who claim that the final Antichrist will be a Roman Catholic. (Google "Pretrib Hypocrisy.")
    It is anti-Protestant. For this reason no major Protestant denomination has ever adopted this escapist view.
    Despite the above, MacPherson proves that the "glue" that holds constantly in-fighting evangelicals together long enough to be victorious voting blocs in elections is the same "fly away" view. He notes that Jerry Falwell, when giving political speeches just before an election, would unfailingly state: "We believe in the pretribulational rapture!"
    In addition to "The Rapture Plot" (available also at any library through inter-library loan), MacPherson's many internet articles include "Famous Rapture Watchers," "Pretrib Rapture Diehards," "X-Raying Margaret," "Edward Irving is Unnerving," "America's Pretrib Rapture Traffickers," "Thomas Ice (Bloopers)," "Pretrib Rapture Secrecy," "Pretrib Rapture - Hidden Facts," "Deceiving and Being Deceived," and "Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty" (pervasive plagiarism, changing of early "rapture" documents in order to falsely credit John Darby with this view, etc.!).
    This Johnny-come-lately view, which prophecy authors Hal Lindsey and Tim LaHaye can thank for their record-breaking bestsellers, raises millions of dollars for political agendas. Only when scholars of all faiths begin to look deeply at it and widely air its "dirty linen" will it cease to be a power. It is the one theological view no one needs!
    With apologies to Winston Churchill - never has so much deception been foisted on so many by so few!

  2. Thanks for the note. Do you have the URL? Interesting! The internet is filled with no rapture material. Thanks! Now, if they could just square it with scripture. :) It seems that God's hiding of His saints is an event the Lord has hidden on purpose yet alludes to it often for the truth seekers. Zephaniah's name means, "the LORD has hidden".

    "Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD'S anger." Zephaniah 2:3

    "Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain." Isaiah 26:19-21

    The dead will live and then the LORD will come to punish!

  3. Again, thanks Abe! I am going to share an article on this.
