Why I Believe The Pretribulation Rapture Is Imminent
By David J. Stewart
“So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.” —Revelation 17:13

The World Is Openly Worshipping the Devil
It is just my opinion, but I feel that the Rapture is near. The New World Order will soon be complete. I am NOT setting any dates.
The Bible clearly states, "Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh" (Matthew 25:13).
No one knows for certain WHEN the Lord will return; but the New World Order is upon us, and all signs point to the coming of the Antichrist.
New World Order symbols and satanism and occult symbols in Rock music, saturate the music industry in all genres, even the Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) industry. Satanism also permeates the Country music industry.
SIGNS OF SATAN ARE EVERYWHERE
The Rapture will be sudden, visible to Christians only, unannounced and immediate, in the twinkling of an eye . . .
"In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality" (1st Corinthians 15:52,53).
1st Thessalonians 4:16-17 teaches that all believers will be “caught up” to meet the Lord Jesus in the clouds . . .
“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” (1st Thessalonians 4:16-17).
People today who claim that the teaching of the Rapture is a new doctrine, only a couple hundred years old, are ignorant of the Scriptures. As you just read, the Bible plainly teaches that all believers shall be “caught up” to be with the Lord in the clouds. Amen! What a day that will be! Paul (writing under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit of God) penned 1st Thessalonians 4:17 in the Bible nearly 2,000 years ago! Clearly, the teaching of a Pretribulation Rapture doctrine has been around for millenniums. The world stage is being prepared for the soon coming man of sin; namely, the Antichrist!
World War Three is Coming Quickly and it Will Involve Nuclear Bombs!
Nuclear Terrorism (Or War) Is A Matter Of “When It Will Happen,” Not “If”! The Chinese, Russian and U.S. governments are building large underground cities. Many former CIA employees and the elite who have inside knowledge are building deep underground bunkers in their personal homes to escape a nuclear blast. Doomsday shelters are in high demand in anticipation of imminent, unpredictable and certainly of the coming (sooner than later) nuclear terrorism and/or global nuclear war. Hundreds of nukes are missing from the Soviets.

STRATEGIC RELOCATION (incredibly insightful 2:23 hour film by Joel M. Skousen preparing for WWIII)
Joel Skousen sits down with Alex Jones and discusses strategies on how to prepare for and survive major disasters. Joel Skousen is a world renowned expert in designing secure homes, geo-political analysis, and strategic relocation. Preparing food, water, arms, medical supplies, and shelter may not be a good enough plan. Large population centers are the biggest threat to survival after any major disaster. Joel Skousen explains his strategy for survival, which includes acquiring all of the essentials, preparing in a safe location and methods on how to avoid a dangerous hungry population and safely arrive at your secure location.

AMERICA WILL BE DESTROYED IN ONE DAY WHEN THE NUKES DETONATE! (Revelation 18:17)
Zechariah 14:12, “And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.”
(could the preceding passage of prophetic Scripture be referring to chemical and nuclear weapons?)

Albert Pike Predicted World Wars I, II and III before his death in 1892
As we progress further into the End Times, everything is going to continue to move faster-and-faster, finally escalating into World War III. WWIII will begin with Israel and it's Arab rivals, which will draw the nations of the world into the conflict and all madness of war will break loose! Iran will be overthrown and conquered. But first Syria must be eliminated as a threat (because they will defend Iran). Lebanon would defend Syria with missile strikes against Israel, so Lebanon must also be eliminated as a threat. There is going to be a massive change of power in the Middle East after World War III. America will likely be totally annihilated with nuclear weapons. All of these events will happen during the TRIBULATION period, as prophesied in the Scriptures (Zechariah 14:1-12). I've written an article about the TRIBULATION Period to help others understand what to expect.
From reading the events mentioned in the holy Bible which will take place DURING the 7-year-Tribulation, it is exciting to know that the Pretribulation Rapture MUST happen first!!! The Antichrist cannot be revealed to the world until after the saints have first been Raptured (Caught Up, 1st Thessalonians 4:17) from the earth to be with the Lord in the air and clouds.
I heard in the news last week that the Roman Catholic Church owns large real-estate property holdings in east Jerusalem. This is significant when we realize that the coming False Prophet during the Tribulation (who will promote and serve the Beast, i.e., the AntiChrist) will likely be the Roman Catholic Pope! There is much talk of rebuilding Solomon's temple these days. They've got everything ready to go, even the building materials and animals sacrifices, with trained temple priests and all, but the Muslims have control over the Temple Mount where Herod's temple (also called Zerubbabel's Temple) once stood. Herod The Great renovated the Temple rebuilt by Zerubbabel. It took 46 years to build. The temple was totally destroyed by Roman Emperor Titus in 70 A.D. (punishment by God against the Jews for what they did to their Messiah, crucifying Him).
At the Rapture, the saints will be removed by God from the world before He pours out His anger, fury and wrath upon the wicked during the 7-year TRIBULATION. For this reason, in view of present developments in the Middle East and on the world scene, I believe that the Rapture is VERY near!
The Massive Population Increase Evidences We're In The End Times
The following graph reveals the startling explosion in the world's population numbers over the past 300 years, especially the past 100 years (i.e., one century). Clearly something very different is happening in the world and this massive growth rate cannot be stopped without massive genocide, murderous abortion, global sterilization or war on an unprecedented scale which will kill billions of innocent souls!!! Everything I just mentioned is already in the diabolical blueprints of the globalists and their monstrous New World Order, which will be completed likely around 2030.
There are an estimated 7,000,000,000 people alive upon the earth today in 2014. There are more people alive today in the world than all of the human population combined over the previous 5,800 years of history!!! The chart below evidences this phenomena.
The following chart shouts that the Lord's return must be VERY NEAR!!! ...
The Bible Teaches a Pretribulation Rapture
As I look at the events of the world today, and the stage being set for the coming Antichrist, I personally believe that the Pretribulation Rapture is near, i.e., the Rapture will precede the 7-year Tribulation Period. The Bible plainly states that no man knows WHEN the Lord will return (Mark 13:32), which means that the Rapture MUST come before the Tribulation Period. The reason is because the Bible plainly states that the Second Coming of Christ will happen 3 1/2 years AFTER The Abomination of Desolation, i.e., when the Antichrist declares himself to be god and demands worship from the masses of the world (Mark 13:14; Daniel 9:27; 2nd Thessalonians 2:4). So it will be KNOWN exactly how much time remains before the Second Coming, once the Antichrist declares himself to be god from the temple in Jerusalem. If you study the King James Bible at face value, you can only conclude a Pretribulation Rapture.
Prophecy Is History Written In Advance!
The New World Order is Here
Increasingly, we are hearing much talk in the news about globalization, a North American Union and a New World Order. The Bible prophesied of these events, when the nations of the world would unite once again, as men did in the days of the Tower of Babel. Modern Babylon is being built and it's called the New World Order. Here's one example from the news on January 8th, 2009...
European Leaders Call For New Global Order
Conference on future of Capitalism provides platform for luminaries to offer globalization as economic savior
Thursday, January 8th, 2009
The leaders of Germany and France along with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair have all called for a new global order in the wake of the financial crisis.
Blair, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy all made the tandem appeal at a conference in Paris on the future of capitalism.
Merkel criticized what she described as a lack of regulatory powers afforded to global bodies such as the IMF, stating that it has “not managed to regulate global capitalism”.
The German leader called for the creation of a new global economic body under the UN, similar to the Security Council, to judge government policy.
Merkel also criticized the US budget deficit and attempts by the US federal government to spend its way out of the crisis, but then stated that “there is no other possibility.”
Sarkozy called for a “new world, new capitalism” during his speech, as he commented “In capitalism of the 21st century, there is room for the state.”
Meanwhile, Blair called for a new financial order which he said should be constructed upon “values other than the maximum short-term profit.”
Both Sarkozy and Merkel have previously called for a new global financial order, along with Top EU officials and current British Prime minister Gordon Brown, who has repeatedly stated that the financial crisis should be used to make world leaders agree to fresh rules and regulations.
The leaders will meet again, along with a host of other world chieftains, to discuss the global economy in London on April 2.
Consider the following startling quote from one of the founders of the European Union, Henri Spaak, in 1957...
‘We do not want another committee, we have too many already. What we want is a man of sufficient stature to hold the allegiance of all people, and to lift us out of the economic morass into which we are sinking. Send us such a man, and be he GOD OR DEVIL, WE WILL RECEIVE HIM.’
There is an empty seat today in parliament at the European Union, and it is seat number 666. I believe that the Antichrist is alive today and is being prepared to lead; however, the Bible plainly teaches that the identity of the Antichrist won't be confirmed publicly until after the Rapture (2nd Thessalonians 2:7,8). Many people today are trying to figure out "who" the Antichrist will be; but the Scriptures tell us in Mark 13:37 to instead WATCH FOR JESUS' RETURN... "And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch." That should be our heart's desire as Christian believers... the Lord's return.
We are witnessing the consolidation of power (control) over the world's natural resources, religions and economic systems under the influence of a single entity, i.e., the Illuminati (a group of elite occult members with a diabolic agenda to bring to fruition a Godless Global Totalitarian Communist Police State, which will be led by the Antichrist). This is Satan's sinister plan, and it's been in the works for thousands of years. Truth is certainly stranger than fiction.
The temple in Israel is ready to be rebuilt. The U.S. government is gone, totally hijacked and now controlled by the offshore banking powers in Europe. Wall Street is synonymous with the CIA (Michael C. Ruppert well documents this in his excellent film, THE TRUTH AND LIES OF 911!). Please note that my video links are continually being made ineffective, because YouTube relentlessly censors the truth, which is wrong, so make sure to copy/paste the video title if any of these links are dead, so you can find the video(s) elsewhere online and watch these films. ILLUMINAZI (1:36 hour full documentary by Anthony J. Hilder exposing the Luciferian elite).
I believe that the New World Order will be completed within the next decade and that the Lord's return is ever so imminent. Even so come Lord Jesus! Remember, the Rapture must HAPPEN BEFORE the Anti-Christ is revealed (2nd Thessalonians 2:4). Daniel 9:27 teaches that the 7-year (one prophetic week) Tribulation period will begin with the Antichrist making a covenant (peace agreement) allowing Israel to worship in their temple and sacrifice again as in the Old Testament. Daniel 8:25 says that the Anti-Christ “BY PEACE SHALL DESTROY MANY.” This is because Satan is a deceiving liar, mass-murderer and thief. From beginning to end, the coming of the Anti-Christ will be epitomized by lying wonders, fraud and unprecedented evil in the world. The 911 attacks were certainly a LYING WONDER (2nd Thessalonians 2:9-12).
I highly recommend watching the following 2:23 hour documentary about the coming of World War III. Joel Skousen has remarkable insight and understanding concerning the New World Order. I agree with everything that he says in this video, and it's good stuff, eye-opening, et cetera. The globalists want a nuclear incident in Manhattan New York, to wipe out the financial centers. That way all the Wall Street banking criminals can be blameless and say it's not their fault. The only way to take over the world is through world war. War equals money and power. The globalists want to remove Israel's threat of Iran, Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, et cetera in the Middle East. China and Russia and their allies will fight to defend Iran, Syria, et cetera. World War III will break out!

I'm just a guy who's a Christian and loves Jesus, and I have a website ministry for the Lord (for which I thank and praise God daily). My personal opinion is that the Pretribulation Rapture is VERY near! The trumpet is out of the case! Amen! I'm waiting for the Uppertaker, not the undertaker! The political saber-rattling between the leaders of the nations cannot last indefinitely. Tension is building! At some point red buttons are going to be pushed and things will BLOW UP!
We're living in a whole new ballgame of predator drones, anti-matter weapons, computer-fired guns, laser-beam weapons in outer space, and new super weapons beyond imagination. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!!!
