BROTHER HOVIND!!! Is Dec. 21, 2012 the End of the World? That's when the Mayan calendar runs out!
Ahhhhh, NO! The Mayans should have gotten a bigger rock, that's all.
Dec 21 is NOT the end of the world but it IS the first day you can watch an exciting new movie about the end times on youtube for free! :) Go to www.afterthetribulation.com for details. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. PLEASE tell EVERYONE you know (or can get to know by then) that they NEED to watch this film and get ready for what is coming! Maybe get it on DVD for a belated Christmas present?
My longtime friend and Pastor, Steve Anderson and THOUSANDS of others (myself included) have come to realize that we "independent, fundamental, temperamental, right wing, radical, chicken eatin', Bible believing Baptists" have been deceived about the rapture for the last 180 years! For 38 years of my Christian life I was taught and believed in the "pre-trib" rapture idea that was made up by a 15 year Scottish old girl in 1830! I just trusted the "prophecy experts" to have studied it and to know what they were teaching. NOT a good idea! "Study to shew YOURSELVES approved unto God..." Hmmm? I failed at that on this topic! Not any more though!
II Thes. 2:1-3 says the Day of Christ (the day of the rapture--NOT "Day of the Lord" as in NIV and others!) CANNOT come until two things happen: A great falling away and the man of sin (antichrist) is revealed. I see now why Satan has pushed so-o-o-o-o-o-o hard to deceive people about the timing of the rapture! So-o-o-o-o-o many are waiting for the Lord to come and rapture us out before things get bad. That is NOT gonna happen and Jesus NEVER said it would! He said, "In the world ye SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION..." Jn. 16:1-4, 33. (BTW- DON'T confuse tribulation with wrath!)
Why don't you tell the Christians being killed by the hundreds TODAY in various parts of the world that "we will not be here for the tribulation." (See persecution.com) Tell them, "God would never let His church go through suffering." Ahhhhh, WRONG! Study the history of the 2,000 year trail of blood Christ's Church has endured. It will be here in America SOON! I predict that because of the disillusionment over the false pre-trib doctrine that MILLIONS of believers right here in America will "fall away" from their faith and even turn other believers and their own family in to be imprisoned or killed just as Jesus warned us would happen in Mt. 24; Mk. 13 and Lk 21! Better read II Peter 3 CAREFULLY!
If you were a Jew living in Germany in 1933 and could see the future, what would you have done? If you were living before the Great Depression in 1929 and could know what was about to happen, what would you have done? If you were living in NJ on the beach before Superstorm Sandy hit and could see the future, what would you do? Well, we have a Book that tells us what is about to happen AND what we should do about it. That's what this film is about! Watch it and get ready.
This is NOT the time to be scared or panic. 365 times the Bible says, "fear not..." This IS a GOOD time to get SERIOUS with your Bible reading AND your relationship with God! This would also be a great time to quit playing with that stupid ball (ANY ball) and win souls! (I been sayin THAT for YEARS!) This WILL be a GREAT time to win crowns! (Rev 2-3) Jesus told us to REJOICE in persecutions because GREAT is our reward! (He knows things that we don't :))
Anyway, I can't see the movie from here (unless I win my case and go home before that!) so please watch it and tell me what you think. If I can encourage you to stay true to the Lord in the coming persecution it helps me get the Dan. 12:3 prize! You can have the prize too! Mark Dec 21 on your calendar now and make a list of folks to blast an email, tweet, phone call, telegram, yell over the fence, etc to on that day to remind them to watch it as well!
I'll see you at the finish line! It's closer than you think! :)
