The Antichrist Is Alive Today: The Vision of Mama Domitila

In 1968, a young woman by the name of Mama Domitila died four days and was taken to heaven by two angels. Eleven companions were with her when this took place and the Lord spoke to them that they should not bury her body. The Lord promised that He would bring her back to life. For four days, Mama Domitila was shown the glories of heaven
and New Jerusalem. She was also shown hell and end times including the rapture of the church and antichrist. The excerpt here below is from “Raised from the Dead 4 Days Later”, a book that will be published soon.

Standing with me were the Lord Jesus and two angels. They took me away and showed me the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ to the earth. The Lord spoke to me and said: “My people are not ready for my coming. They say that prophecies have not been fulfilled yet, that they still have time!” But He said to me “Many prophecies have been fulfilled, they have been happening but my people do not know. I want to prove to you however that many prophecies have been fulfilled. That though they say that they are still waiting for antichrist, I want to show you that anti-christ has already been born! He is alive on earth today.” [that was in 1968 saints!!!]

He showed me a beast that looked like a lion. I saw also a great sea. A great red sea. But by the sea shore, there was a great dreadful beast. This beast was buried in the ground from the waist down. I looked alas, and this beast bent down! He gave birth. When the beast gave birth, behold the child who came forth looked like a human being. I was shocked to behold this scene: a beast giving birth to a human child!

While I was still standing in amazement, I saw that this beast again bent
down. I saw that he was breathing his breath into the born child. As a new breath entered into the child, I saw that this child started growing in my very own eyes. He grew to become an adult in my very own face. I was so scared. How can someone be born and grow at the same time?

All of sudden, I saw that this child was no longer a human being. In a very short moment, he was transformed into a serpent. But this serpent was not just a serpent either, when I looked again, behold I saw he had 3 different colors: White like pure white color, red and black.

He asked me “Do you have an understanding of all of these?” I said, “My Lord, I do not know.” He told me “I want to show you how the antichrist has been already born. Do you see that beast which gave birth? This is to show you that the anticrhist was already born. But his father is not a beast. This beast is an image signifying that he was already born by means of an evil spirit. That beast represents the evil spirit. The way you saw the beast breathing into him, and how he grew up to become an adult in one moment, this is to show you that antichrist has already been born. He was born through an evil voice. The evil spirit gave him power to work. Antichrist is already alive and he is supported by powerful people who are compared to that breath.

The way you saw him transformed into a serpent, this represent that antichrist will look like other people, he is a person. He is walking today like others, speaking like them, working like them. He is not revealed yet, and you cannot know him. He is very intelligent. That’s why you saw him as a serpent.

The three colors represent this:

WHITE: The day when he start working, he will be crafty like a serpent. The white color you saw means that he will come calling himself a holy man. He will come as a wonderful man; he will do good works that many will appreciate. He will heal the sick. He will give wealth to the poor. He will bring peace on earth. He will resolve many problems. He will come with good works. People will love him above and beyond. He will be g great. The only people who will discern him and know him are those only full of the Holy Spirit. The people who are in touch with God, read His Word and have God’s discernment will know him.

RED: Though he will bring peace and though he will make many people happy, he will shed the blood of holy people.

BLACK: Though he will come doing many wonderful things, performing great wonders, his end is that he is evil and his evil acts are the worst of all and he will be evil exceedingly.

And He said to me: “And the way you see this beast buried in the ground
halfway, that means that antichrist is alive. But he is working in secret. He cannot be unbound and do the works openly on the earth because the church of Christ is still here on earth. He is bound until that day when the church will be raptured. That is the day he will start moving openly and freely. Now you see the red sea which is burning with fire. This is to signify that though antichrist will come with lots of power, though he will do great miracles as he has so much power in his hand, his end however is this: he will be thrown in the lake of fire together with satan and the false prophet. They will be thrown in the lake of fire.”

Go and Tell the Church

He told me: “tell the church, tell the people, this is the time to serve the Lord. This is the time to repent. This is the time to receive salvation. This is the time to receive the Word of God. This is the time to treasure this Word in your heart. But the times ahead are difficult times. People will look for the Word of God but they will not be able to find it. People will look for a Bible, but they will read it in hiding. That time has come, that time is near, that time is ahead of you. Seek the Lord while He may be found, this is the time to seek salvation.”

Saints of God, this is the time to serve the Lord. But the times ahead are very hard. The times that prophet Amos saw are coming. They will be hard times. From sea to sea, people will be looking for the Word of God but will not find it. “Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord GOD, “When I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine for bread or a thirst for water, But rather for hearing the words of the LORD. And people will stagger from sea to sea, And from the north even to the east; they will go to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, but they will not find it.” (Amos 8:12) That time is near – those who are wise, seek the Lord while he may be found.

The day when the church is raptured, the world will be full of darkness.
Darkness will enter the world. We will go as a church but the world will be full of darkness. We are the light of the world. The day the church will be raptured, the world will be full of darkness. Be full of the Holy Spirit oh, saints of the Most High God. Those who are not full the Holy Spirit will not hear the trumpet sound. “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and thus we shall always be with the Lord.”
(1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

He told me – go tell the church, go tell my people: this is the time to seek the Lord. This is the time to seek salvation not the things of this world. Warning: For those who will be left behind: Never take 666: The Mark of the Beast! There is NO forgiveness, NO salvation, NO hope and NO second chance for anyone who receives the mark of the beast! (Revelation 14:9-11)

About 1 in 3 Pastors in the United States Do Not Believe in The Rapture

According to CBN News, 36 percent of pastors in the United States say the rapture is not literal.

Citing a new study by LifeWay research, out of the 1,000 senior Protestant pastors surveyed, only a third (36 percent) believed in a pre-tribulation rapture where Christians disappear at the start of the apocalypse and those left behind suffer tribulation, while almost 1 in 5 believe the rapture happens after the tribulation (18 percent).

“Most people want their pastor to preach about the Book of Revelation and the end of the world,” said Scott McConnell, vice president of LifeWay Research.

“But that’s a complicated task. Pastors and the scholars they cite often disagree about how the end times will unfold.”

The diversity among eschatological views includes varying opinions on the Anti-Christ and beliefs in a millennial kingdom.

About half of pastors (49 percent) see the Anti-Christ as a figure who will arise in the future, 14 percent believe he is the personification of evil, while 12 percent say he is not an actual person.

Close to half of the pastors surveyed believe in pre-millennialism (48 percent), which is the view that the thousand year reign of Christ happens in the future.

A third (31 percent) of leaders don’t believe in a thousand year reign but they do believe that Jesus already rules in the hearts and minds of Christians. Close to 1 in 10 (11 percent) believe in post-millennialism, the idea that the world will gradually become more Christian until Jesus returns.

Mary K. Baxter & Pastor Jamerson: After the Rapture, the Believers Who Remain Will Be Rounded Up and Beheaded by Guillotine, Unless They Receive the Mark of the Beast

Mary Katherine Baxter was an ordinary housewife until Jesus Christ appeared to her on 40 consecutive nights and took Mary on a tour of Hell and Heaven. She walked, with Jesus, through the horrors of hell, and she has described what she has seen and experienced in her book ‘A Divine Revelation of Hell’.

Besides seeing hell and heaven, Mary also received warnings from Jesus Christ about the endtimes. She shared her endtime warnings in an interview with Pastor Jamerson. Below, please find an edited transcript and the Youtube video of the interview.

Mary Katherine Baxter:

What I saw was that in the endtimes, the church was caught up.

And then I saw the world and the American flag was burned. And I saw army troops all over the world. And I said, “Lord, where are the Christians?”

And He said, “Look”.

And I could see no one praising God. I saw army trucks come in with guns and barricade, and coming in, putting people into the big trucks, and taking them to places to be tormented

I saw people with marks on their heads – (gesturing to her forehead) three ‘6’s up here – and on their hands. And the peoples who would not take the mark were beheaded.

I saw awful, awful things on the face of this earth.

I saw beast that looked like part-man and part-beast walking around.

And Jamerson shared with me today about another lady (a young Christian) who had a similar vision.

People need to get ready for the coming of the Lord. The word of God is coming to pass very quickly. And it is not to put the fear into people, that God would smush them. It is to let them know that God expects us to turn to Him, and to turn from our sin (you know) to truth and righteousness, and let Him clean up our lives.

And He will help us overcome everything. And He loves us; Jesus loves us.

And people need to know the love of God. Yet they need to know what is coming on the earth, and He promised that He would let us foreknow things coming on the face of the earth.

Pastor Jamerson:

I have given this book (i.e. Mary Baxter’s ‘A Divine Revelation of Hell’ book) to many people and I have given this tape to many people too…

This sister I gave this book to is – her husband that I led to the Lord (he was on one of our videos). I led him to the Lord about 4 years ago and his wife got saved too and I gave them this book. And immediately they began to read the book and it shook them up so much.

The next night, this sister went to bed, and immediately woke up in this dream.

In her dream, she woke up, and she and her husband were looking for their little kids. They have 2 children. And she woke up looking for them but she couldn’t find them. In her dream, she woke up her husband, and they looked, and ran outside. Once they ran outside, they saw other individuals running outside also looking for their kids. And she looked up to the air, and she saw hundreds of thousands of people – most of them were kids – going up to the air. And a voice said: “This is the rapture. They are taken away.”

And she said out of a sudden from nowhere (just like your vision Miss Baxter) army trucks began to come all over America and began to bum rush the territories in the cities, all the different cities, and they took trucks, and they began to take people out of their households, and put them into these trucks.

They took her to these buildings, which reminded her of an aid office, where you receive financial aid or whatever situation you might be in.

And she said that they would sit them down and tell them to take this mark (Mary Baxter can be head in the background saying: “Yes, I saw the same thing”). And if you don’t take this mark, you are going to be killed.

And she said she’d seen a group of people running around and they said they were Christians. And they’d began to praise the Lord and chant “Jesus is Lord”.

And the more they began to chant “Jesus is Lord”, they were snatched up into different rooms.

And she said she heard them being tormented in different rooms, crying and hollowing and screaming out: “Jesus”

And she said, “Lord, wait a minute. I am a Christian, what am I doing here? I prayed to you and I was in Your Word”

And she said that a voice spoke to back to her and said, “The reason you are here, Micky, is because you didn’t preach my word.”

And she said: “Well, Lord, why is my husband here?”

“And the reason your husband is here is because he had unforgiveness in his heart.”

From there, they let her go to the washroom area. And she said that they gave them 3 minutes to let them do what they needed to do.

She said that the water would come on. And when the water would come on, the people were washing their hair.

And the lady got soap in her eyes and she began to cry. She wanted to take the mark, because she couldn’t get the soap out of her eyes, because they had immediately cut off the water.

Micky told her, “You can have my water.” And then she said “Don’t take the mark”.

She said that she came back down. She saw a special bulletin on the TV (the TV was embedded on the wall; like a hospital wall).

And on the television set, a special bulletin came on. It was a man, with a sneaky smile and said something like “Yes, hundreds of people, or thousands, are missing all over the nation. Could this be the rapture?”

He was sarcastic. “Could this be Jesus coming back?” “Nah, I doubt it. Wait a minute. Let’s have a word from our president.”

And she said that all of a sudden, she saw the president. Bush had lost the Presidency when she had had this dream. And she said that it wasn’t Bush. She said that that Lord covered up his face and the only thing she could see was his hand and hear his voice. And he was lying to the public and everybody was buying it.

And suddenly, they snatched her up. They told her, “Come!”

And they began to march single line down this tunnel. And on this tunnel they were walking through, she heard voices of different individuals crying and screaming out to Jesus: “Jesus, Jesus, have mercy I love you, Lord. I love you, Lord. I am about to die. I am about to dieeeee (Pastor Jamerson claps his hands to imitate the sound of a guillotine hitting the ground)”… and it would get cut off.

And she began to march down the stream and she sees the other end of the tunnel. There were hundreds of them going across.

She said that when she got to the other building, there was a whole room of guillotines. And the guillotines — people were actually getting their heads cut off.

She said for the people who were taking the mark of the beast, when they took it on with their right hand, it would immediately appear on their foreheads. And she said that you can see that thing in the spirit, and in the physical. And she said that you can see it.

And when she walked towards the other building, she said that she saw a whole bunch of people. People whom she thought were regular human beings but they were really demon spirits. They had black capes on, hoods over their faces, but their eyes were like demon eyes. And their hands were like snake skins – (gesturing to Mary Baxter) like you said about the heart of hell.

These demons were cold blood killers. And the Lord spoke: “This is what I mean when I said ‘woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short’. These were demon spirits manifested in the flesh to act like people, but they have a heart to kill people.

And she said that they began to take people and chop their head off.

And they chopped her and her husband’s head off, and their spirits immediately went up to heaven. And she was up there with the children and other people.

But the thing about this dream, Miss Baxter, was that the people that were up in heaven – her kids, the age was one and a half, and this dream was three and half years later. Like it is right around the corner. I am not saying that that that is accurate and that what they said is coming to pass.

What I am saying here is that warning comes before destruction. If the watchmen see the war coming and don’t blow the trumpet, the bible says, their blood shall be on our hands.

That’s why what you said, Miss Baxter, is very important for the pubic to understand. It’s no joke. Jesus is coming back soon.

Mary Katherine Baxter:

Yes, and it is the sins in their hearts that is going to keep them from the rapture. If they have unforgiveness… in Galatians 5, if you have unforgiveness in your heart, you got to get that out because you can’t go to heaven. And this is so true, that the nations need to have understanding what God is telling us today.

Mary K. Baxter’s Frightening Endtime Vision: America in Tatters, Men Mind-Altered to Become Hard Labour Slaves; Women Made to Become Depersonalised Breeders

Mary Katherine Baxter was an ordinary housewife until Jesus Christ appeared to her on 40 consecutive nights and took Mary on a tour of Hell and Heaven. She walked, with Jesus, through the horrors of hell and talked with many people. Besides seeing hell and heaven, Mary also received an endtime vision. Here are excerpts from Mary Baxter’s book ‘A Divine Revelation of Hell’:

The Lord said, “This vision is for the future, and it will come to pass. But I shall return to redeem My bride, My church, and they shall not see it. Awaken, o My people I Sound the alarm to the comers of the earth, for I shall return as My Word has spoken.”

I beheld the fiery serpent that was in the right arm of Hell.

Jesus said, “Come, see what the Spirit is saying to the world.”

I saw the horns of the fiery serpent as they entered the bodies of people on earth. Many were completely possessed by the serpent. As I watched, I saw a huge beast arise in a large place and turn into a man. The inhabitants of the earth ran from him, some into the wilderness, some into caves, and some into subway stations and bomb shelters. They sought any shelter to hide from the eyes of the beast. No one was praising God or talking about Jesus.

A voice said to me, “Where are My people?”

I looked closer and saw people like dead men walking. There was a desperate sadness in the air, and no one turned to the right or left. I saw that the people were being led about by some unseen force. Now and then a voice spoke to them out of the air, and they obeyed the voice. They did not talk to one another. I saw too that the number “666” was written on each one’s forehead and on his hands. I saw soldiers on horses herding the people about as though they were cattle.

The American flag, tattered and torn, lay forlornly on the ground. There was no joy, no laughter, no happiness. I saw death and evil everywhere.

The people walked one behind another into a large department store. They kept in step like discouraged soldiers and were dressed identically in a type of prison garb. A fence surrounded the store, and guards were stationed here and there. Everywhere I looked, I saw soldiers in battle-dress uniforms.

I saw these zombie-like people herded into the store, where they were able to buy only the barest necessities. As each completed his purchases, he was placed aboard a large green army truck. The truck, well-guarded, was then driven to another area.

Here, in a type of clinic, these people were examined for communicable diseases or crippling handicaps. A small number of them were shuffled to the side as rejects.

Soon, those who failed the examination were taken to another room. In that room, an impressive array of switches, buttons and gages lined an entire wall. A door opened, and several technicians came in. One of them began to call the names of the people in the room. Without a struggle, they arose when their names were called and marched into a large box. When they were inside, another technician closed the door and pulled a switch in a panel on the wall.

A few minutes later he opened the door, took down a broom and dust pan, and swept what remained of them off the floor. Nothing but a bit of dust was left of what had once been a roomful of people!

I saw those people who passed the medical exam being put back into the same truck and driven, to a train. No one spoke or even turned to look at anyone else. At another building each person was assigned a job. They all went to work without a single dispute. I watched as they worked very hard at their assigned tasks, and then at the end of the day, they were taken to an apartment building with a high fence around it. Each undressed and went to bed. Tomorrow they would work hard again.

I heard a loud voice fill the night air. I saw a huge beast, and he sat on a large, I throne. All the people obeyed the beast. I saw spiritual horns growing from his head. They reached, into and out of every place on earth. The beast took upon himself many positions of authority and many offices, and he became great in power.

The beast pushed himself into many places and deceived many people. The rich and the famous were deceived as well as the poor and disfranchised. Small and great paid homage to the beast.

A large machine was brought into an office. The beast put his mark on it, and his voice came out of it. There was also a “big brother” machine that could see into homes and businesses. Only a single machine of this type existed, and it belonged to the beast. The part of the machine that was located in the homes of the people was invisible to the naked eye, but it could and did report to the beast every move the people made. I watched as the beast turned his throne around and faced toward me. On his forehead was the number 666.

As I watched, I saw another man in another office become very angry at the beast. He demanded to talk with him. He was yelling at the top of his voice. The beast appeared and seemed very courteous as he said, “Come, I can help you take care of all your problems.”

The beast took the angry man into a large room and motioned for him to lie down on a table. The room and the table reminded me of a hospital emergency room. The man was given an anesthesia and wheeled beneath a vast machine. The beast attached wires to the man’s head and turned on the machine. On the top of the machine were the words, “This mind eraser belongs to the beast, 666.”

When the man was removed from the table, his eyes had a vacant stare, and his movements reminded one of a zombie in a movie. I saw a large blank spot on the top of his head, and I knew his mind had been surgically altered so he could be controlled by the beast.

The beast said, “Now, sir, don’t you feel better? Didn’t I say I could take care of all your problems? I have given you a new mind. You will have no worries or troubles now.”

The man did not speak.

“You will obey my every command,” said the beast as he picked up a small object and attached it to the man’s shirt. He spoke again to the man, and he answered without moving his lips. He moved like a living dead man. “You will work and not get angry or frustrated, nor will you cry or be sad. You will work for me until you die. I have many like you that I control. Some lie, some kill, some steal, some make war, some have children, some run machinery, and some do other things. Yes, I control everything.” An evil laugh came from him.

The man was handed papers to sign. He gladly gave all his belongings to the beast.

In my vision I saw the man leave the office of the beast, get in a car and drive home. When he approached his wife, she tried to kiss him, but he made no attempt to respond. He had no feeling for his wife or anyone else. The beast had made him incapable of feeling any emotion.

The wife became very angry and screamed at her husband, but to no avail. At last she said, “OK, I’ll call the beast. He will know what to do.” After a quick phone call, she left the house and drove to the same building her husband had just left.

The beast welcomed her in and said, “Tell me all your troubles. I am sure I can help you.”

A very handsome man took her by the arm and led her to the same table her husband had been on earlier. After the same operation, she also became a depersonalized slave of the beast.

I heard the beast ask her, “How do you feel?” She did not answer until after he had attached a small object to her blouse. Then she acknowledged that he was master and lord and began to worship him.

“You will be a breeder,” he said. “You will have perfect babies, and they will worship and serve me.”

The woman replied in a robotic voice, “Yes, master, I will obey.”

I saw the woman again. This time she was in another building. There were many pregnant women there. The women lay lifelessly on their beds and in chanted monotones praised the beast. All had 666 on their foreheads.

When their babies were born, they were taken to another building where mind-altered nurses had the task of raising them. The nurses also had 666 on their foreheads.

The beast grew in power until his empire stretched across the earth. The babies also grew, and at a certain time, they also went beneath the mind-destroying machine. They worshiped the beast and his image. But the machine had no power over the children of God.

I heard the voice of the Lord say, “Those that worship the beast and his image shall perish. Many shall be deceived and will fall, but I will save my children from the beast. These things will take place in the end times. Do not take the mark of the beast. Repent now before it is too late.

The beast will call himself a man of peace. And he will bring peace to many nations out of a very chaotic time. He will be able to supply the world with many inexpensive goods, and he will assure that everyone’s pay is sufficient. He will make an alliance with many nations, and the great men of the world will follow him into a false sense of security.

“Before these times I will raise up an army of believers that will stand for truth and righteousness. The mighty army that Joel spoke about will hear My voice from the rising to the going down of the sun.

“In the night hours also they will hear My voice, and they will answer Me. They will work for Me, and they will run like mighty men of war. They shall do great works for Me, for I will be with them.”

All these things were revealed to me by the Lord Jesus Christ in an open vision. They are the words of His mouth, and they concern the times of the end.

Does Revelation 5:9 Suggest a Pre-Tribulation Rapture?

It is bad practice to make a doctrine on the rapture (or for that matter, any other topic) based on a single verse in the bible.

Nonetheless, we are presenting this video to you for your consideration, as you study the entire bible over the issue of the rapture.

And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation (Revelation 5:9; KJV; emphasis added)

Lot’s Wife Is a Sign to Worldly Christians That They Are in Danger of Missing the Rapture

Remember Lot’s wife! (Luke 17:32, NIV)

It is significant that the only two occassions when the Lord Jesus Christ seems to have asked His disciples to commit something to memory are in in Luke 22:19 (concerning His body) and in  Luke 17:32 above (concerning Lot’s wife) .

Who is Lot’s wife and why is she so significant that the Lord Jesus Christ would instruct His disciples to commit her to memory instead of someone perhaps more worthy, like Abraham or David?

We don’t know the actual name of Lot’s wife because she is never referred to by name (see Genesis 19). Incidentally, even the Lord Jesus Christ did not refer to her by her actual name, and I think this says something, because the Lord Jesus, being omniscent, would surely have known.

The book of Genesis, however, does reveal that she was among those who were rescued from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah (see Genesis 19), but eventually, was not “saved”. Indeed, she was judged for “looking back” [Genesis 19:26; NIV]) and her penalty was that she was turned into a pillar of salt.

Why was her penalty so severe? The NET Bible translation of Genesis 19:26 suggests that when Lot’s wife “looked back” at the burning Sodom and Gomorrah, this wasn’t just a casual look across one’s shoulder, but rather, she had “looked back longingly“. The International Standard Version translation of Genesis 19:26 also suggests that “Lot’s wife looked back as she lingered behind him [Lot]”, implying that she had been relucatant to leave Sodom and Gomorrah, even in the face of its impending doom.

Clement, an early church leader after the apostles, made the following comment about Lot’s wife:

Because of his hospitality and godliness, Lot was saved from Sodom when the entire region was judged by fire and brimstone. In this way the Master clearly demonstrated that he does not forsake those who hope in him but hands over to punishment and torment those who turn aside. Of this his wife was destined to be a sign, for after leaving with him she changed her mind and was no longer in harmony, and as a result she became a pillar of salt to this day, that it might be known to all that those who are double-minded and those who question the power of God fall under judgment and become a warning to all generations (1 Clement 11:1-2; as translated by Michael W. Holmes in The Apostolic Fathers: Greek Texts and English Translations; emphasis added)

Double-mindedness was Mrs Lot’s problem, but it is also an attitude that Christians are warned against:

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. (James 4:8, NASB, emphasis added)

What does it mean to be double-minded? It means to be of two-minds, or to have one’s loyalty divided between God and the world (James 1:8; New Living Translation). Indeed, in 1 John 2:15 (NLT), believers are warned: “Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you.

Now, let us examine the passage of scripture where the Lord Jesus Christ mentioned Lot’s wife:

28 Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 29 but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.

31 “In that day, he who is on the housetop, and his goods are in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back. 32 Remember Lot’s wife. 33 Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it. 34 I tell you, in that night there will be two men in one bed: the one will be taken and the other will be left. 35 Two women will be grinding together: the one will be taken and the other left. 36 Two men will be in the field: the one will be taken and the other left.” (Luke 17:28-36; NKJV; emphasis added)

The tragedy of Lot’s wife was that she was rescued but yet not saved because her heart was so affixed to Sodom and Gomorrah. Just as her fixation for Sodom and Gomorrah hindered her from being saved, a believer’s fixation to the world could hinder them from being raptured.

I infer from verse 31 above that on the day of the rapture, God might send angels to some believers, to these believers to their housetops, as they can make their way to the Third Heaven and espape the impending peril that would come upon the earth.

However, some believers might be so overcome by the desire to return inside their homes to take their treasured possessions that they miss the opportunity to be raptured and thus be “left behind“.

Oh, how foolish! There is absolutely no need for any believer to return to his/her house to retrieve any earthly thing for it is not a shack that awaits us, but a mansion (John 14:2).

But why would any believer be so overcome by the desire to retrieve their worldly belongings? I submit to you that it is because they have become a creature of habit. Because their minds have been so fixated on their earthly things, they mindlessly return to these things at the peril of their souls, and neglect the instruction of the Lord Jesus Christ not to do so.

To put it in another way, due to a fixation on earthly things, these believers are not “worthy” to be raptured.

This is also why the Lord Jesus Christ has instructed all of us pre-raptured believers now to “watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”” (Luke 21:36, NKJV; emphasis added)

Oral Roberts’ Vision Concerning 911, the Rapture and the End Times; “The Church Is Not Ready for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ”

Editor’s note:  I’m sharing this despite knowing full well that the late Oral Roberts was a rather controvesial character (for details, click here for the Wikipedia page). Personally, I do not follow Roberts’ teaching, but perceive him to have a genuine prophetic gift. It is reported that Roberts received this vision towards the end of 2004 (he passed on 5 years later), and I perceive this vision to be true.

“In the midst of the turmoil, the fear and the anxiety that’s in our nation and in our world, as I was walking and meditating, I heard the voice of God. I’ve heard that voice many times. It’s too familiar to me, and there’s no way that I can fail to understand His voice because I’m familiar with it. And instantly I heard that voice and I heard it and then I saw with my eyes something I’d never seen.

Suddenly, in the clouds in the skies above New York City and the east part of the United States, and which hung there for quite sometime and then spread out across America, without touching the ground, and then God diffused it away from America and sent it out to the nations of the earth. And I saw and I heard. What did I see? I saw something coming down from above: Smoke and vapor and blood, or it looked like that to my eyes, to my spiritual eyes.

There it was hanging so huge until it almost blotted out the sky. Instantly I thought about 9/11, when the terrorists attacked the Twin Towers and through television all of us in America, and probably the world, saw those more than 100-story-high buildings crumple and heard the cry of thousands of people who were being either killed or wounded. I remembered the fear that struck my heart and knew that what I was feeling everybody else was feeling and remembered that never in the history of the world, and certainly not of America, that something of this proportion had struck the human race and was a preview of things similar to it that were going to happen through what we now call terrorists.

First, I saw this thing hovering and great changes coming in it to where I couldn’t miss it. And then I heard, something came into my ears, and it reminded me of what a friend of mine had said when the first space capsule was released into the sky.

He was a newsman in New York City and maybe half a mile or more away from the capsule. And he said when that thing lifted off the earth, there was a sound, and the sound itself moved the weeds and the growth, and he said, “It penetrated my body.” He said, “As I talked to others, they felt the same thing.” He said the sound was so enormous that nothing had ever happened like it in the history of the world. Instantly, I thought of that because the sound that was coming into my ears was penetrating my whole being.

And then I heard God’s voice. He said: “I’m making a sign.”

This is a sign according to the second chapter of Acts, where the apostle Peter, upon the giving of the Holy Spirit, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, said there’ll be signs in the skies.”

He said, “This is one of the signs of the end time because the world is not ready for the second coming of my Son.” He said, “My church is not ready for the second coming of my Son.

He said, “The Jews, with whom I’ve had the covenant for thousands of years, they’re not ready for the second coming of my Son.” He said, “The nations of the earth are not ready for the second coming of my Son.”

He said, “America has been set aside by a special covenant that I made with many of the people who came to found this nation several hundred years ago, that this was My nation and the gospel was going to go out from it unlike any other nation and there’d be more gospel going out from America.”

And He said, not only would there be a powerful military presence in the United States unlike any other nation, but it would be the center of the gospel that I was sending out.

And He said to me, “You remember that I said in My Bible to my disciples 2,000 years ago, ‘Go into all the world and teach all nations, and when that teaching has reached the nations then shall the end come.'” And then he startled me. He said, “With all of the widespread force of my church in the world, but particularly in the United States, which is the source of most of the gospel that’s being preached in all the world,”

He said, “There is a wasting of My power, there is a failure to grasp the end time. And the church, they are coming to church on Sunday morning mostly for themselves. And the preachers, for the most part, are not really concerned about the nations of the earth.”

“They’re concerned about the little group that is there, and they sing their songs and they get up and preach.” And He said, “When 9/11 struck, there was a fear that came into the hearts, even of My people of the church and of the people outside the church. And millions the following Sunday or two rushed to go to church.”

“But the preachers were not prepared, and most of them didn’t even preach on it and didn’t even talk about it being the sign of something that’s coming hundreds of thousands of times bigger.”

He said, “When those planes of the terrorists struck the Twin Towers in New York City and they gradually came tumbling down, it was something bigger than people had ever seen, but it’s nothing in comparison to what’s going to happen in the second coming of my Son.” And so He said, “My church was not prepared to deal with that, and people came to church and then nothing much happened and they dropped back and many of them went back to their bars,” as I heard Kenneth Copeland say.

“And there I was with my whole creation that’s alive in the earth, not counting all those who have died—millions who have lived and died, all of whom will be resurrected at some time in the future, having to do with the second coming of my Son, some to everlasting life, some to live forever in their new bodies and some to everlasting shame and contempt forever lost.” And He said, “I love people. I created them. I love them by creation. I love them because I sent My only begotten Son.” And instantly I thought of the great show that Mel Gibson made of The Passion.

When millions upon millions went to see it and are seeing it now all over the world. I remember when I sat there with my wife, watching it, and how my soul was stirred and the tears sprang from my eyes and my body trembled as I saw something about the sufferings of Jesus, the Son of God, to save the human race and so that the devil would not destroy God’s creation. He would not destroy men, women and children that God had created and for whom Jesus had died and rose from the dead that we might be born again—we might repent of our sins and have salvation and come into a readiness for the coming of Christ. And He says, “As you know in the Bible, the second coming is in two parts. One is called the rapture, one is called the revelation.

And first of all I’m going to rapture, or catch up, My people—the people who are born of my Spirit and filled with My Spirit and serving me. I’m going to catch them up in a moment of time and they’ll meet My Son in the clouds and come on into heaven, into My presence. And then not long after I’m going to bring that bride of Christ back with Jesus when He comes the second time to the earth, and that’ll be the beginning of the judgment of the nations.

But He said, “The thing that is breaking my heart is that I commanded my people, I commanded My church to preach the gospel in all the world and to teach all nations. And while they are evangelists and pastors and prophets and apostles and all kinds of my workers in various parts of the world and in some of the nations of the earth, it’s just a drop in the bucket to what I commanded My disciples to do.”

“And I love people so much I cannot afford to let people go on like they are. And then He directed my attention to the book of Matthew, the 24th chapter, where He speaks in the 24th chapter and beginning at verse 35:

“Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away. Concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.”

Now, He reminded me in the 6th chapter of Genesis that the earth was filled with violence and it was so full it couldn’t be any more full and it grieved the heart of God that He had made man and he decided that He would destroy man and begin over, and He established a remnant and it was a family: Noah and his family. And He commanded him to build a huge boat that would take two of every living thing in it so when the flood came—and they’d never had rain before in the earth, it had been watered by a mist.

But He said, when the flood comes and this boat with this family and two of every living thing gets in it and the flood lifts them up from the earth that’s being destroyed, or from the human race that’s being destroyed, the flood that lifts the ark, or the remnant of my people, in Noah’s day, will come down in judgment upon the people of the earth.

And He said …

Now, there’s got to be preaching with fire in the belly!

There’s got to be an anointing of the holy ghost. My church has to wake up because what I’m revealing in this sign that “every” eye is going to see, “every” ear is going to hear. They’ll see this thing. They will not necessarily know what it is, but it’s a wake-up call about the Second Coming of my son!

It’s not going to come and touch the earth. It’s going to be seen, it’s going to be heard, and people are going to become aware of the drama of the end time, of the Second Coming of Christ. When He splits the skies and comes back with His bride and takes over the reign of the earth and He destroys the Antichrist, who will arise at that time. He will destroy the followers of Antichrist and He’ll establish His kingdom upon the earth. And He said, “I cannot let anybody live and die without knowledge that my Son is coming back the second time.”
