Scoffers are Trolls, Misfits, and above all: Liars.

Tom's Journal.

Just read 2nd Peter 3: 3 !  It talks about SCOFFERS in the Last Days, misleading all sorts of weak people, obviously spirited by their father, Satan the devil {STD} -- The father of the lie.... and his long record of lying goes all the way back to Genesis and Adam and Eve.  Second Peter also talks about the "Dumb Ass" --chapter 2, verse 16...  something you guys don't want to miss !

This is the 1500 post [according to my calculations...] that I've completed in my humble Blog... and thank you all for reading and commenting ! !
***************************************************************************************   ***
But First,  a goody from another short subject that many are talking about -- with 2 - recent goofy movies from Holly Wood that are trying to make fun and sport of the "Rapture subject !!"  I am sure that there is a special place in hell for turkeys in Hollywood who need a long time to ROAST.    MMMM.. now I am hungry for roast turkey, all of a sudden, and didn't eat much today.....
   Pay attention and LEARN to defend the Faith amidst the popular Scoffers, even here in the USA !!   BAHH !

Rapture Before Anti-Christ?

Q.  Since I teach an adult Sunday School class, I am very diligent about accuracy.  Here’s my question.  In 2nd Thessalonians 2:3, Paul answers a very deep concern of the believers there.  When he states that the Day of the Lord will not come “unless the apostasy comes first  and the man of sin is revealed” is Paul implying that they would see the man of sin or will they (we) be taken in  the Rapture beforehand?   My observations are that apostasy is now rampant and easily observed. Why is it not reasonable that will we also see the anti-Christ identified before the Rapture?

A.  In 2 Thes. 2:7 Paul clarified his statement of 2 Thes. 2:3. He said;
 ”For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.”
Most evangelical scholars interpret the one who holds back the secret power of lawlessness as being the Holy Spirit, resident in the Church.  The idea is that first the Church will be raptured and later the anti-Christ will be revealed and then the Day of the Lord will commence. This order of events is consistent with Paul’s other statements that Jesus will rescue the Church from the coming wrath (Romans 5:9, 1 Thes. 1:10). In both these verses, the Greek word translated “from” pertains to both the time and place of the wrath and describes the rapture.

And Now.... 'The Hal Lindsey Report'  
June 21st, 2013

This week on 'The Hal Lindsey Report'
  We live in a world and at a time that could only have been envisioned by true prophets of God.

Sales of George Orwell's book, Nineteen Eighty-Four, are up 6,000% because of his eerie foreshadowing of events that are unfolding in America today. In fact, his warnings about what might happen to citizens under the thumb of big government have given rise to the common use of the word "Orwellian." It describes a society rife with secret, universal surveillance, elaborate deceptions by government officials, and manipulation of the record of the past by an authoritarian state to support its current narrative. But Orwell's book was published only 35 years before 1984 and recent totalitarian governments had provided a blueprint upon which Orwell could confidently make his fictional predictions.

The ancient prophets, however, lived and wrote thousands of years before the times they described with unnerving accuracy. They wrote about events and conditions that were totally impossible for them to even imagine or conjure. That's why I say that they were true prophets of God, because only God could have inspired them to write with such pinpoint precision.

On this week's program, I am going to report on three current developments that the prophets and Apostles described with unbelievable accuracy. They're made all the more remarkable because those men could not possibly have even conceived of how these events could occur.

They are: the rapidly worsening crisis in Syria that threatens to involve the world; the public ridicule of the Rapture depicted in two movie comedies released this month; and the recent revelations of how much data capacity the National Security Agency (NSA) is amassing. Capacity that every scrap of information about every American could not begin to fill, but would be necessary if the same information were gathered and stored for every human living on earth!

First, America is being sucked into what could only be described as a "holy war" in Syria. It is one that we do not want to join and one that will never be won -- by anyone.

Second, the Apostle Peter warned that "in the last days, scoffers will come...." The movies "Rapture Palooza" and "This is the End" are but the latest examples of how that prediction is coming to life in modern America.

Then, the NSA is building data centers that will soon be able to record and store (literally, not figuratively) "everything" about everyone on earth (not just the USA) and keep it "forever." These are not my words, but the words of the CIA's Chief Technology Officer. Now, the question we must ask is, "Why does the NSA need so much data storage capacity?"

I believe there's a simple answer. In the misguided (but prophesied) search for "peace and safety," we are trading our freedoms -- maybe even our souls -- for the false promise of security. Without doubt, and also without explanation, the NSA and other agencies in other nations are being compelled to build facilities they don't need for reasons they don't understand. But waiting in the wings stands one who is about to be unveiled and who will know exactly what to do with them.

When the Antichrist and his cohort, the False Prophet, finally step onto the world's stage, they will find a vast technological infrastructure already built and waiting for them to use to fulfill the prophecies of the Apostle John in the 13th chapter of the Book of Revelation.

I plan on not being here. Accept the free gift of pardon that Jesus Christ bought for you with his brutal death on Calvary, and you will escape those horrible days, too.
