After watching this video last night on youtube, in which the vlogger insists, correctly, that the rapture was not scheduled for 9/23/17, I have been thinking about this a lot due the spate of doomsday predictions that came out targeting this particular date as the time of Christ’s return. That particular vlogger does a thorough job of dissecting the reasons why the date is incorrect based on biblical references; she also seems to prove that any rapture that happens will be after, not before, tribulation takes place.
I have read quite a few conflicting theories lately about the supposed order of all these events. After my harrowing experiences the day of the eclipse and the day after, while under the influence of a legal dissociative drug, I came to understand the impetus for why these events may happen. In my young life in my religion of origin I believed end-times events were just pre-ordained like the dates on a calendar. Now I understand it has to do with humanity giving so much reverence to darkness, such as paying attention to the solar eclipse, etc, (which seemed to break Christ’s heart), that may tip the scales in favor of turmoil and tragedy on Earth. I personally did not even know that he was capable of being so broken by the actions of humanity until what I saw that day; I am deeply ashamed that I participated in this as well, even though unlike most other people I know that the moon is has a depraved consciousness as it is a dead remnant of a planet destroyed in a collision with Earth 4.5 billion years ago.
Christ’s physical body is our Sun, so to have his light blotted out by the moon is bad enough, but to have people celebrate and applaud it was devastating to him. There is an awful lot of celebrating of darkness going on right now on this planet; Doreen Virtue, a new age leader who recently converted to Christianity, recently said she was given a message by Christ for people to “stop worshiping the devil” and start worshiping God again. He seemed to show me the catastrophic effects of what transpired, in terms of weather events like hurricanes, just to have his light blotted out for the small period of time as on the eclipse; not to mention the emboldening effect it had on the consciousness of the dead planet that most people know as ‘the devil’.
I was watching a show on the Catholic tv channel last night where a viewer called and asked why the priest was not spending time making the same predictions about these end times signs as folks in other faiths were. After listing off many dates of former end of the world predictions, beginning with Hal Lindsey in the 1980’s, the priest referred to the bible verse that says that no one but God knows the exact hour or day; the then said simply that ‘this is a management issue, and we are employees’ referring to God vs. representatives like himself, respectively. He handled the issue very gracefully and calmly, and then went on to the next question.
I then turned to another religious channel and a rabbi was on this one selling a book about the similarities between an ancient king and queen and Bill and Hillary Clinton, these events were apparently relevant to the end-times narrative as well. It did cross my mind at that point that there is apparently money to be made, hand over fist, trafficking in the fear generated by the end times industry.
I had another experience on this dissociative one time in which God took me to a huge stringed instrument hanging in the midst of space, with multi-colored strings in the brightest hues. He told me that this instrument was a kind of ‘thought-catcher’ on which our thoughts were projected so that reality could be fashioned out of them. I am growing more and more suspect of the end times industry every single day, because it generates two things, in my opinion: 1) intensely negative emotions like fear and dread and 2) disdain for blood-thirsty Christian “pre-tribulationists” who believe they will be raptured before the events of tribulation begin, and have a bizarre lack of empathy and concern for the suffering of those ‘left behind’.
When God revealed to me this beautiful stringed instrument that creates human (and possibly all) reality by catching human thoughts, whether, bad, or indifferent, and fashioning them into reality, he left me with the loving admonition to “remember the strings, and Be Positive!” I will never forget the love in his command, he really drove home how important it is for human beings to echo and mirror the attitude of Jesus Christ, or Sol, our star; he is constantly sunny, calm, peaceful, loving, empathetic, and overwhelmingly compassionate and kind. This is the model of how we humans are supposed to be, what we are supposed to try to emulate. End times narratives being bandied about do neither of these. They create terrible fear and dread in those who are not sure what to believe, and they make Christians look like blood-thirsty sociopaths who have no concern whatever for those people whom they feel will not be ‘taken in the clouds’ with them and God.
They seem unable to realize just how deeply Christ loves every human being in existence, (and indeed, every living being), and how devastating an event this would be for him to have to leave behind sections of human to horrible trauma and suffering. This is nothing God celebrates, and I can imagine it turns people away from Christianity in droves to hear people celebrating their good fortune with no concern for those not so blessed; an image comes to mind of the brick wall separating the healthy, laughing children of the guards at concentration camps while just on the other side stood the frail, emaciated Jewish prisoners barely clinging to life. It is clear to me that God and Jesus Christ in no way want to cause suffering to any living being, nor would they celebrate the terrible suffering of the unfortunate in joyous terms. I can’t imagine that they would want their spiritual holiness represented by people trafficking in such negative emotions for profit, either.
The one chord that runs through all these predictions and visions I am reading in all these accounts lately is this: repent. God and Jesus seem to want us to ask forgiveness for what we know we have done wrong and try not to repeat our mistakes. Whether these events will happen next week or next century is anyone’s guess. One older relative of mine told me once that these predictions were said to be happening soon since she was a girl in the early part of last century. The message I want to retain from all of the end times predicting going on right now is the concept of repentance, and for all else I will remember the words God told to me about the effect of our thoughts on creating reality: “Remember the strings, and Be Positive”. We need to honor God and be God-like, and Christ-like in our behavior, and that is not about trafficking in moroseness and fear.
