AFTER THE RAPTURE









I pray this message does not reach you in hind sight & I pray that whatever brought you to AWFSM & to this page, brings you the added truth & relief that you personally need right now to help you continue to grow in the faith & the love of our Lord Jesus Christ. What happens to life on planet earth after the 'Rapture' has been talked about, debated, given to fiction & nonfiction; but almost certainly never discussed at the dinner table. Talking about life after the 'Rapture' makes many people uneasy & usually ends up upsetting the reader or listener or simply boring someone to death. But, it is a topic of controversy & needs to be approached carefully & thoughtfully, but at the same time with with a nuts & bolts approach with biblical truth.



The purpose of this article is to try to help you survive the tribulation period, based on the bible. In truth it will be highly difficult for anyone accurately to plan around the horrible events that will occur after the Rapture going into the Tribulation period; because it will basically be more than about anarchy and war. During that time there will be many supernatural catastrophes sent by YHWH God that are designed to systematically destroy every resource man has counted on to survive. Harsh truths & they will be specific & many times only target certain natural resources while completely disregarding others. Here are some of those precise events that will take place during this upcoming time that anyone not taken in the Rapture will have to face:

1. First Trumpet: All grass burnt up; one-third of trees burnt up (Revelation 8:7).

2. Third Trumpet: One-third of world's rivers and streams poisoned (Revelation 8:10-11).

3. First Bowl: Sores breakout only on those who have taken the mark (Revelation 16:2).

4. Second Bowl: Sea turns to blood, all fish die (Revelation 16:3).

5. Third Bowl: Rivers and fountains become blood (Revelation 16:4).

6. Fourth Bowl: Heat of the sun scorches men (Revelation 16:8-9).

7. Fifth Bowl: Complete darkness falls only on the kingdom of the Antichrist (Revelation16:10).

Right now that might not mean a lot to you, but you are going to have to face this new world order, one way or another & this article might be your life line (hoping that the internet is still functional).

HERE IS A PERSONAL LETTER TO ALL THOSE LEFT BEHIND AFTER THE RAPTURE - PLEASE KEEP A COPY OF IT WITH YOU!


Dearest Family & Friends:


The fact that you are reading this letter indicates that you have been left behind on the earth following the Rapture of the Church. I can only imagine the fear & despair confronting you. You are more than likely feeling very frightened & bewildered right about now. The world is in chaos after millions of people have suddenly disappeared and panic reigns everywhere you look, & all it's confusion must be over the top & you don’t know what to do. Let me try to explain what is going on & what you still need to know & what you still can do.


You may be asking,

“How can tens of millions of people disappear from all over the world?”

Many of you have now discovered that the common denominator of the missing people is their sincere faith in Jesus Christ as Son of God, Savior & Lord. The missing are Christians who are saved by grace through faith in the Blood of Jesus Christ.


First of all, what just happened is that Jesus Christ suddenly removed from the earth all those who had accepted Him as their Savior & Lord & have been born again. Jesus promised in the Bible that He would remove them, & He has done so. (see 1 Thessalonians 4: 16-17)


Perhaps, you are now aware that not one infant or child under the age of accountability remains on the earth. You may also find out that even babies in the wombs of their mothers, have been caught up to be with the Lord. Do not worry about these little ones. Every infant & child is eternally safe in the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ!


Of course, there will also be many self-proclaimed Christians who have been left behind, they will say none of this is true, in attempts to rationalize their own theology, beliefs & lifestyle that have basically been outside of Christ & false. Their way is the road to hell. Many will try to give you a different explanation of what happened. They will say, for example, that those who were removed from the earth were inferior beings of a lesser consciousness. When the world leader called the AntiChrist rises to power — which he will do shortly, if he has not done so already — he may say that he himself removed all Christians from the earth. Regardless, the truth is this …  Jesus Christ removed His followers from the earth in the cataclysmic event called the Rapture. This is the true & only explanation. (again, see the Book of 1 Thessalonians 4: 16-17)


Importantly, I do want you to know that your loved ones, your children & infants, your friends, & some of your acquaintances have not been snatched away by some evil force, some invasion from outer space, or disappeared into a parallel dimension. The airwaves will be flooded with theories. What sounded ludicrous to you before might sound logical now, but it is not. Even if evidence, such as video or audiotapes show that your loved ones are indeed somewhere else, you can be sure that this evidence is fabricated by those who have come into power following the disappearance of Christ’s church, His believers.


It is certain that massive chaos has resulted from this disappearance of all true believers & children from the earth. It is likely that martial law is in effect in many places & that emergency measures to keep evil elements from looting & fighting over the spoils of what is left have been instituted. Governments will tumble & there will be international chaos & disorder.


You may be asking,

“Is this the judgment of God on an ungodly world?”

Actually, His judgment upon the earth follows the Rapture. Strange as this may sound to you, this judgment is God’s final effort to get the attention of every person who has ignored or rejected His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ; Jew & Gentile alike. God is allowing a multi-year period of trial & tribulation to come to those of you who now remain. He has removed His church, as His Word declared a long long time ago, from a corrupt world that seeks its own way, its own pleasures, & its own ends, without Him.

The Bible tells that God’s Holy Spirit has acted as a restrainer on evil, to this day & age. The Holy Spirit who has resided in His believers has now temporarily left the earth. Without this restraint evil will be unleashed in unprecedented ways & demonic forces will run totally free on the earth. God has removed His hand & said in effect, “If you don’t want me world, try it your own way.” God’s purpose & desire, is to allow those who remain on earth, to turn to the Bible for truth & to Christ for salvation.


So, what happens now dear family & friends?


I want to warn you that soon a very seemingly charismatic leader, the Antichrist (called the beast), will come into power & will sign a covenant with Israel (Daniel 9:27). This period of time is known as the “Tribulation” or the “Time of Jacob’s Trouble.” During this Tribulation, there will be terrible wars, famines, plagues, & more natural disasters than ever seen before. God will be pouring out His wrath against sin, evil, & wickedness. The Tribulation will include the appearance of the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, & the seven Seal, Trumpet, & Bowl judgments that the Bible states. During the seven-year period of horrendous suffering known as the Tribulation, the second three-and-a-half years of the Tribulation will be worse than the first three-and-a-half years & will be called the “Great Tribulation.” This time period will witness even greater earthquakes, storms, diseases, plagues, & every kind of horrific suffering. (read the Book of Revelation)


In response to the utter chaos in the world resulting from the Rapture, people will cry out for someone to take charge and bring things back to order. A man will arise & take charge. Like already mentioned this man will be the AntiChrist, but the world will not recognize him as the AntiChrist. The world will think he is their savior because he will seemingly put the world back in order. Key word, seemingly.


This man will bring about a semblance of world peace. This means that it will not be a true world peace. It will only be the prelude to a vicious & brutal dictatorship in which most of humanity will be wiped out. And yes, this was all written about before hand in the book of Revelation.


This AntiChrist mentioned before, this brilliant charismatic leader & a man with an amazing personality will be looked to as God. He will seem to do what no man in history has ever done, he will perform many signs & wonders to back up his authority & many will believe on him. He will seem to bring about a peace in the Middle East that no one has ever been able to forge before. In fact, he will even call for the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple. The Jews will love him & embrace him at that time & believe along with many others.


But know this & don’t forget it! The AntiChrist is a deceiver of the worse kind. In fact, he is Satan personified. The AntiChrist will be a man totally possessed by Satan. The AntiChrist will reveal his true colors. When? In the middle of the Tribulation, he will enter the Temple in Jerusalem, offer a sacrifice that will be an abomination to the Jews (possibly the sacrifice of a pig), & declare himself to be God. At this point, the Jews will recognize who the AntiChrist really is. They will have to flee to Petra (in Jordan) because the AntiChrist will start to slaughter them. It will be a holocaust worse than the holocaust of World War II.


The AntiChrist will demand that all people of the earth worship him. Literally. As proof of their worship, they will have to take the mark of the beast (the AntiChrist is also called the “beast” in the Bible. See the Book of Revelation again). This mark will very likely be a computer chip of some sort in the forehead or on the back of the hand. Possibly ejected under the surface of the skin or a kind of unremovable chip & tattoo combined on the surface of the skin.


The Antichrist will break the covenant with Israel & make war against it. The Antichrist will commit “the abomination of desolation” and set up an image of himself to be worshipped in the Jerusalem temple (Daniel 9:27; 2 Thessalonians 2:3-10), which will have been rebuilt. The second half of Daniel’s 70th Week is known as “the Great Tribulation” (Revelation 7:14) and “The Time of Jacob’s Trouble” (Jeremiah 30:7). You will need to know this information now to help prepare yourself & others.


During these times the earth will be undergoing great upheavals. The book of Revelation describes some horrific times through a series of judgments. More than one-third of the world’s population of seven billion people will die. Meteors, earthquakes, what may be nuclear disaster, war, famine, & much more. You may think it cannot get any worse than it is, sorry but it does.


Remember, your one true source of protection & provision will only be through the Lord God Almighty, YHWH … through His Son Jesus Christ the Messiah, Yeshua HaMashiach. The world will look for a person some leader to help them fight through all of this. But the answer is in no other & in no other name, but Jesus Christ Himself. Whatever you do, even unto physical death & torture, do not allow the new world government’s mark to come upon you or your family or friends. If you take this mark, you will be forever separated from God. If you take this mark, you will be condemned to hell with no recourse! No more opportunity for repentance! Please again, I pray that you do not receive that mark of the beast that they will try to enforce upon everyone ‘left behind’.


By taking that mark you are in effect declaring that your hope is in this new One World Government & in the AntiChrist … not in the One True God. You have to know that those not taking the mark will be arrested & likely put to death. It is just that, a life & death situation. The only way you can face this is to endure all this with the knowledge that it was predicted to you before it occurred. The same God who predicted this will be awaiting your arrival in the kingdom of Heaven if you are forced to endure unto physical death. Sorrow may last for the night, but joy comes in the morning. (Psalm 30:5).


BUT WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST!


If you want to spend eternity with God, then you must renounce the mark of the beast. But if you do renounce it, you will most certainly die by their hands. So, you now have a choice: Accept the mark of the beast & face eternal damnation & go to hell, or refuse the mark of the beast, accept Jesus Christ as your Savior & Lord, be executed, & go to Heaven. This is a matter of your eternal destiny.


Because you refused to accept Jesus Christ before the Rapture, you were left behind. Do not make the same mistake again!  Choose Christ & suffer physical death so that you will not have to suffer eternal death in hell, separated from God.


I pray that you will choose to embrace Jesus Christ as your Savior & Lord. Repent of your sins. Turn to Him. No matter how great your suffering, nothing is worth losing your soul forever. And, now you can see the reality of all these words put together right in front of your eyes in this moment.


Now here is another point of information, you must pay very careful attention when two witnesses appear in Jerusalem in defiance of this wicked world leader. These two men are God’s prophets & they will speak justly in judgment against the world. They will be dressed in sackcloth, which will make identifying them easier. They will also have miraculous powers. Listen carefully to these two men & do not disobey them because they are from God.


So at the end of the Tribulation period, the Antichrist will launch a final attack on Jerusalem, culminating in the battle of Armageddon. Then Jesus Christ will return, destroy the Antichrist & his armies, & cast them into the lake of fire (see Revelation 19:11-21). Christ will then bind Satan in the Abyss for 1000 years & He will rule His earthly kingdom for this thousand-year period (see Revelation 20:1-6).


The disappearance of the saints & children, the chaos left behind, & the despairing of the heartbroken are evidence that what I am saying is true. Pray that God will help you. Receive His salvation gift right now. Help each other. Be generous. There is no fear in Love. God is Love. We never make decisions out of fear (see Philippians 4:4-9). There is no life in reliving your sin or wallowing in fear. There is life in completely acknowledging your utter depravity together with His complete HOLINESS. When you put those two fully opposite truths together in one thought, great praise, service, & faith comes forth & you will know what to do.


YHWH God wants to forgive your sins & provide you eternal life. As the scripture reveals in Ezekiel 33:11, “I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way & live.” God freely offers you forgiveness, pardon, & eternal life if you look to Him (John 3:14-15).


In John 14:6, the Bible tells us very clearly that Christ is the only way to God & eternal life. Recognize & acknowledge to God & before men that Jesus is God’s Son & the only Way to Heaven.


It is now my prayer that you be strengthened & guided by His Holy Spirit during the cataclysmic events that are about to unfold throughout the world. Trust in God & know that He will guide you through all of this & give you strength & everything that you need. Mostly, everlasting Life.


Remember, this is everyone’s last chance to escape eternal separation from God & His love. Like you, others will be searching for answers to what is happening in every family, in every city, in every country on Earth.


But if you have come to know & trust Him then shine like a righteous light before men! Stand strong if you are required to give your mortal life for the sake of Christ. Remember that the moment you close your eyes on this life you will open them again in the presence of Jesus Himself. Eternity with Him is an eternity more than the few short years left here. Endure it with joy, sharing your faith always! He, and all of your missing loved ones & acquaintances will be waiting to greet you & welcome you to the Kingdom of Heaven.


May God richly bless, guide, & strengthen you through the trials that are being poured out onto the world. May He make His light to shine through you into a world He desperately wants to reconcile to Himself. May you be a great soul winner in these final days of His harvest, & may you be rejoined to your loved ones as soon as His will permits.


I urge you to store this letter in a safe place so that you can refer to it after the Rapture, as you may need. If you do find yourself left behind after the Rapture & living in the Great Tribulation period, you will still have the opportunity to accept Christ. I do pray, however, that you will accept Christ before the Rapture so that you will not have to read this letter after the Rapture.


You are no doubt at this point stunned, shocked, afraid, & remorseful. The Apostle Paul, wrote the following to the Thessalonians, concerning the event called the “Rapture.” But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 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. Wherefore comfort one another with these words (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).


Every person who had believed in & accepted the sacrificial death, burial, &resurrection of Jesus Christ has now experienced His glorious return for them. As you read this letter, you can be assured that these believers have already seen the fulfillment of Christ’s promise when He said: “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also (John 14:1-3).




Please feel free to share this letter with your family & friends. Copy it & sign your own name to the bottom for your own testimony & witness of the Rapture. Spread the word about Christ's salvation now, while there is still time. Share this letter so that those who still refuse to accept Christ now will know what has happened & what to do when they are left behind after the Rapture. Thank you!


With greatest love!
Your friend in Christ ...
