THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH

First posted January 9, 2012

“Are You Rapture Ready???”

 
Evangelical Christians and Christian Fundamentalists everywhere preach “the rapture” of the church. They eagerly look forward to the day when they (the elect) will be taken (raptured) from the earth before the Great Tribulation. Only non-believers in Jesus Christ will be “left behind” to suffer the persecutions of the Antichrist.

Though their concept of “a rapture” is Biblical, their interpretation -- and their timing of it -- is erroneous. The elect will be on the earth during the Tribulation. And like the Apostles and the martyrs before them, they will not be spared their trials, pains and suffering.

“I do not ask that You (Father) take them out of the world but that You keep them from the evil one.” (John 17:15)

“Remember the word I spoke to you, ‘No slave is greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you.” (John 15:20)

~ * * * ~

The doctrine of a “secret rapture” to occur before the Tribulation was first conceived in 1827 by an ex-Anglican priest-turned-Fundamentalist-minister. Known as the father of dispensationalism, John Nelson Darby invented this (heretical) doctrine claiming there were not one, but two “second comings.”
 


No Apologies #113 - The Rapture (Nov. 24, 2009)

(2 Thessalonians 2:1,3,8; Matthew 24:29-31; Colossians 1:24;
Romans 8:17-18; Revelation 3:10)

~ * * * ~

The Rapture of the Church and
the Second Coming of Christ
are the Same Glorious Event to occur
after the Tribulation.

For the Lord Himself, with a word of command, with the voice of an archangel and with the trumpet of God, will come down from heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Thus we shall always be with the Lord. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars (or flaming meteors resembling stars) will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then the sign (The Cross of Christ) of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send out His angels with a trumpet blast, and they will gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. (Matthew 24:29-31)

For as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. In [those] days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day that Noah entered the ark. They did not know until the flood came and carried them all away. So will it be [also] at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be out in the field; one will be taken, and one will be left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken, and one will be left. Therefore, stay awake! For you do not know on which day your Lord will come. (Matthew 24:37-42)

Behold, I tell you a mystery. We shall not all fall asleep, but we will all be changed, in an instant, in the blink of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (1 Corinthians 15:51-52)

The question to ask should be:

“Are you ready to come before
the Face of God?”
(Every moment we must be ready to go to God.)

SEX DEMONS, INCUBI AND SUCCUBI

It is common for people with sexual sins (including sexual fantasy, masturbation, fornication, pornography, adultery and homosexual practices) to be harassed nightly by sex demons (with vivid sexual dreams and sexually explicit nightmares). But some people are attacked nightly by sex demons (incubi and succubi).

 
“Last night as I lay on my bed, I heard someone whisper my name... Something spread my legs, and I was full of lust. It got on top of me and I could hardly breathe; I could hardly move. Then it started having sex with me! I know this sounds crazy but it happened.”
 
INCUBI AND SUCCUBI

 
The “incubus” spirit is a demon that sexually attacks a woman during her sleep. (The “succubus” spirit is a demon that sexually attacks a man during his sleep.)

Lying in bed, the woman is sexually aroused by some kind of presence in the room. It is a lustful presence that seduces… and stimulates. It is a lewd, insidious presence that covers her, presses down on her chest, and eventually attempts sexual penetration.

Many women enjoy having “spiritual sex” with an incubus demon, a passionate lover that becomes a jealous spirit husband. (Many men enjoy having “spiritual sex” with a succubus demon, a passionate lover that becomes a jealous spirit wife.) Pleasant sexual arousal, seduction and carnal intercourse often lead to unwelcomed sexual advances, molestation and violent rape. These sex demons feed upon the sexual energies of women and men. Compliance with the demon’s desire is rewarded; resistance is punished.

The incubus or succubus spirit can be summoned with a ritual found on the internet. The result can be demonic possession and a home infested with demons. (I have encountered such a case.)

Evil spirits attack and exploit weakness and vulnerability. In the case of the incubus or succubus spirit, it could be sexual sin and perversion, abortion, sex magic… hexes, spells or curses of witchcraft… dabbling with spiritism or pagan rituals… But a door has been opened; consent has been given.

~ * * * ~

I know a woman who was once a victim of the sexually-stimulating attacks of an incubus spirit (demon). It began with a sexual relationship with a sorcerer, a practitioner of black magic. She told me he had performed “sex magic” on her. This was the “open door” -- her consent given.

Some time later, this woman (touched by evil) was working in the sex industry. She soon started her own “telephone sex” business with another man. Her perverted sexual sins provided another open door.

When the incubus spirit entered her life, the woman welcomed the sexual pleasure it gave. She told me it would “lick” her while she was alone in bed -- but it did not end there!

When I met her, she was suicidal, hearing voices… and being sexually assaulted by a demon! (Incubi and succubi are very real.)

~ * * * ~

When a woman is in mortal sin -- not in a state of grace -- prayer will have little effect on the incubus spirit. (So too, when a man is in mortal sin -- not in a state of grace -- prayer will have little effect on the succubus spirit.)

Deliverance is possible through the Sacraments of the Catholic Church: Daily Mass (Daily Eucharist) and Weekly Confession (for best results). Many will also need deliverance prayer and prayer for inner healing.

The incubus or succubus will return (Matthew 12:43-45 / Luke 11:24-26). And when it does return, it must find all doors closed! It must find the person in a “state of grace” and “Sacramentally” fortified. Then, it will look for someone else to attack.

INCUBUS IN SCRIPTURE

Is there any mention of an incubus spirit in scripture?

The incubus spirit is often referred to as a “spirit husband.” (The succubus spirit is often referred to as a “spirit wife.”) A severe case of incubus is found in the Book of Tobit (Chapter 6:13-18). Although folklore, this inspired book provides valuable insights into the faith.

“…Now listen to me, brother (Tobiah); we will speak about this girl (Sarah) tonight, so that we may arrange her engagement to you. Then when we return from Rages [Media (North-West Iran)], we will take her and bring her back with us to your house.”

But Tobiah said to (Archangel) Raphael in reply, “Brother Azariah (Archangel Raphael had disguised himself as a man), I have heard that she has already been given in marriage to seven husbands, and that they have died in the bridal chamber. On the very night they approached her, they would die. I have also heard it said that it was a demon that killed them (the demon of lust, Asmodeus).

So now I too am afraid of this demon, because it is in love with her and does not harm her; but it kills any man who wishes to come close to her

Raphael said to him: “Do you not remember your father’s commands? He ordered you to marry a woman from your own ancestral family. Now listen to me, brother; do not worry about that demon. Take Sarah. I know that tonight she will be given to you as your wife…

When you go into the bridal chamber, take some of the fish’s liver and the heart, and place them on the embers intended for incense, and an odor will be given off. (In 700 B.C., these organs were believed to have healing powers.)

As soon as the demon smells the odor, it will flee and never again show itself near her. Then when you are about to have intercourse with her, both of you must first get up to pray. Beg the Lord of heaven that mercy and protection be granted you
(Tobit 6:13-18)

ST. MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL

AND THE FALL OF THE ANGELS

Then war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon. The dragon and its angels fought back, but they did not prevail and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. The huge dragon, the ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, who deceived the whole world, was thrown down to earth, and its angels were thrown down with it.
(Revelation 12:7-9)

This does not refer to the beginning of time 
when Lucifer was cast out of Heaven. 
(The Fall of the Angels)

WE ARE NOW LIVING REVELATION 12.



“In the Name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit,
through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Amen.”

Glorious Prince of the Celestial Host,
St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in the conflict
which we have to sustain
“against principalities and powers,
against the rulers of the world of this darkness,
against the spirits of wickedness
in the high places
(Ephesians 6:12).”

Come to the rescue of men,
whom God has created to His image
and likeness,
and whom He has redeemed at a great price
from the tyranny of the devil.
It is thou whom Holy Church venerates
as Her guardian and Her protector,
thou whom the Lord has charged
to conduct redeemed souls into Heaven.

Pray, therefore, the God of Peace
to subdue Satan beneath our feet,
that he may no longer retain men captive
nor do injury to the Church.
Present our prayers to the Most High,
that without delay
they may draw His mercy down upon us.

Seize “the dragon, the old serpent,
which is the devil and Satan,”
bind him and cast him into the bottomless pit
“…that he (may) no more seduce the nations
(Revelation 20:2-3).”

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle;
be our protection against
the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the Power of God,
thrust into Hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.
Amen.

“In the Name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit,
through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Amen.”


Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have salvation and power come, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Anointed. For the accuser of our brothers is cast out, who accuses them before our God day and night. They conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; love for life did not deter them from death.

Therefore, rejoice, you heavens, and you who dwell in them. But woe to you, earth and sea, for the Devil has come down to you in great fury, for he knows he has but a short time.” (Revelation 12:10-12)



NOVENA TO ST. MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL

THE FALL OF THE ANGELS
(BEFORE THE CREATION OF MAN)

Paradise Lost

Behind the disobedient choice of our first parents lurks a seductive voice, opposed to God, which makes them fall into death out of envy. (Genesis 3:1-5; Wisdom 2:24) Scripture and the Church’s Tradition see in this being a fallen angel, called “Satan” or the “devil.” (John 8:44; Revelation 12:9) The Church teaches that Satan was at first a good angel, made by God: “The devil and the other demons were indeed created naturally good by God, but they became evil by their own doing.”

Scripture speaks of a sin of these angels. (2 Peter 2:4) This “fall” consists in the free choice of these created spirits, who radically and irrevocably rejected God and His reign. We find a reflection of that rebellion in the tempter’s words to our first parents: “You will be like God.” (Genesis 3:5) The devil “has sinned from the beginning”; he is “a liar and the father of lies.” (1 John 3:8; John 8:44)

It is the irrevocable character of their choice, and not a defect in the infinite divine mercy, that makes the angels’ sin unforgivable. “There is no repentance for the angels after their fall, just as there is no repentance for men after death.” (St. John Damascene)
[Catechism of the Catholic Church (391-393)]

BLACK MASS FOR PUBLIC VIEWING

AND THE CATHOLIC RESPONSE

Satanic Black Mass Poster at Harvard

In May 2014, thousands of faithful Catholics processed through the streets of Cambridge, MA in protest to a Satanic Black Mass scheduled to occur on the Harvard University campus. 



The Satanic Black Mass was cancelled in response to this overwhelming surge of prayer, procession and protest to the event.



Satanists are rising up, demanding their “religious” rights.

Oklahoma City is the beleaguered city where Satanists want to build a 7 ft. tall statue of Satan next to the Ten Commandments monument outside the Oklahoma State Capitol building.


A Satanic Black Mass has been scheduled to occur at the Oklahoma City Civic Center on September 21, 2014.  

“The Black Mass being performed at the Oklahoma City Civic Center has been toned down as to allow it to be performed in a public, government building. The authenticity and purpose of the Black Mass will remain intact while allowing for slight changes so that a public viewing can occur without breaking Oklahoma’s laws on nudity, public urination, and other sex acts.” _ The Satanic Temple

“Catholics must organize Eucharistic processions and holy hours; they must fast and pray fervently for the cancellation of this event. We must petition Our Lord (Jesus Christ), His Mother, and all the angels and saints in this fierce battle against the powers of hell. To fail to fight this evil is to abandon souls to hell.” _ a local exorcist

BEGINNING OF SORROWS

It is the end of an era, and the beginning of sorrows.

At Fatima (1917) and at La Salette (1840s), the Blessed Virgin Mary was sent by God to warn that all humanity will suffer an increase in natural and man-made disasters, a Great Apostasy, God’s Justice and Divine Wrath, due to the increase of sin in the world. Our Lady comes to urgently call us to repentance, conversion, prayer and penance, that some of God’s Justice may be averted. But time is running out.

Cova da Iria, Fatima (July 13, 1917) _ Three shepherd children “saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendor that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: ‘Penance, Penance, Penance!’…”
_ From the third part of the “secret” of Fatima, committed to paper by Sr. Lucia (January 3, 1944)

Question: Is it within God’s permissive will to allow the use of weapons of mass destruction (“man’s inhumanity to man”) to punish mankind?

Answer: “The angel with the flaming sword represents the threat of judgment which looms over the world. Today the prospect that the world might be reduced to ashes by a sea of fire no longer seems pure fantasy: man himself, with his inventions, has forged the flaming sword.” _ Pope Benedict XVI

“And let us not say that it is God Who is punishing us in this way; on the contrary it is people themselves who are preparing their own punishment. In His kindness God warns us and calls us to the right path, while respecting the freedom He has given us; hence people are responsible.” _ Sr. Lucia, Fatima visionary, in a letter to Pope John Paul II (May 12, 1982)

This threat of judgment loomed over the world in 1917. We have been given almost one hundred years -- a century of Divine Mercy. But we now live in the darkest of days. We now live in a world begging for purification…

“I (Jesus) do not want to punish aching mankind, but I desire to heal it, pressing it to My Merciful Heart. I use punishment when they themselves force Me to do so; My hand is reluctant to take hold of the sword of justice. Before the Day of Justice I am sending the Day of Mercy.” (1588) “He who refuses to pass through the door of My mercy must pass through the door of My justice…” (1146)
_ From the Diary of St. Faustina, “Divine Mercy in My Soul”

“And so the Church has a profound need 
to re-learn penance,
to accept purification, 
to learn on the one hand forgiveness
but also the necessity of justice.
And forgiveness does not substitute justice.”
Pope Benedict XVI, During his flight to Fatima (May 11, 2010)


Very Powerful 7.9 Magnitude Earthquake 
Strikes 24km SE of Little Sitkin Island, Alaska
June 23, 2014

Today, the earth groans under the weight of man’s sins and cries out in a loud voice: “Purification, Purification, Purification!” It is now midnight; it is the end of an age; the time of Divine Justice has arrived. The Purification has come, and there is terrible Chastisement on the horizon.

Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that the Antichrist was coming, so now many antichrists have appeared. Thus we know this is the last hour. (1 John 2:18)

The current “global climate of fear” is understandable. For those who do not have faith in Jesus Christ, there is only fear. Fear is all they know. 

It is the beginning of sorrows… a time of trial and tribulation: “Prepare, Prepare, Prepare!”



  • We need to be in a “state of grace” and “Sacramentally” fortified. (We need to be free of mortal sin through frequent Confession and daily/frequent Eucharist.)
  • We need to live according to God’s will. (We need to obey the Ten Commandments, submit to rightful spiritual authority, and follow all the teachings of the Catholic Church.)
  • We need to pray more, and fast. (Prayer changes things, and the Rosary is a Powerful weapon against the enemy.)
  • We need to forgive -- everyone. (Un-forgiveness cuts us off from God’s grace.)

“An age is coming to an end, not just the end of a remarkable century but the end of seventeen hundred years of Christendom. The greatest apostasy since the birth of the Church is clearly far advanced all around us.”
_ Dr. Ralph Martin, Consultor to the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization

Let no one deceive you in any way… the apostasy comes first and (then) the lawless one is revealed… (2 Thessalonians 2:3)
