YOU WERE SLEEPING
In Part V of While You Were Sleeping,
we again attempted to juxtapose the prevailing concept of prophetic
interpretive thought – personified by the Rapture Cult
– versus the truth that the LORD has revealed through the Scriptures.
The core of the Remnant system that Christian
Media is trumpeting pivots on the identity of Israel. The Cult That
Kidnapped Christianity in the nineteenth century in England, also allows
for a presence of Israel, but it removes the crucial component of the absolute
fact that God always keeps His promises. It does this by positioning the
promised salvation of Israel as following an event that will never occur
– the Rapture.
The Rapture Cult has been rehabilitated
from their dubious British origins in Christianity through its articulation in
the Christian-Occult group led by young Margaret MacDonald in
England (her eccentric circle was engaged in multiple dubious doctrines, in
addition to what is now known as “partial” or
“progressive” Rapturism) – but it’s also been forensically
implicated in literary chicanery by the biographer of John Nelson Darby,
the respected pastor who “legitimized” the doctrine to the UK and
“Even so every good tree bringeth
forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth corrupt fruit” (Matthew
When Darby saw the powerful evangelistic effect the
Rapture theory had on church audiences as it emphasized the any moment
imminency of Christs’ alleged secret coming to evacuate His saints, his
Christian associates sought to distance the doctrine from two dubious figures
that had already theorized elementary versions of the new system. In addition
to the trance-like utterance of teenage Margaret Macdonald, an erratic
pastoral figure named Edward Irving was believed to be working on a
variation of the novel prophetic system at the time.
Contemporary research – based on the discovery of
the Nag Hammadi Gnostic documents unearthed in Egypt in
the 1940’s – indicates the idea of the Savior rescuing his
followers amidst escalating cataclysmic conditions (read the
“tribulation”) is documented in Occult codices written before
the birth of Christ. In what is called “Sethian” literature
(the Savior is supposedly associated with Seth, the third son of
Adam), a rudimentary form of the “Rapture” has been found in very
old Egyptian documents.
Furthermore, it has been established that early Church
fathers quoted from some of this material. This history is covered in the Christian
Media published book The Culting of Christianity by yours
Although the entire book was freely serialized on the
Internet, predictably, the Christian Media Network has met with a wall
of silence from those in the mainstream Christian media. Indeed, much of the
emerging Remnant of Israel theology posited by this ministry is based on
controversial information of this sort, but God has seen fit to continue
disseminating His prophetic truth without the broad acceptance of the
contemporary Christian church.
Before the specific citations detailing the Sethian
Rapture were exposed in The Culting of Christianity, we had
already surmised the pivotal period of Post World War II – now routinely
referred to as the Nuclear Age (or the “Baby Boom”) –
was somehow related to the removal of the “restrainer,” that has
held the Spirit of Antichrist at bay throughout the Christian era.
The New Testament tells us the Spirit of Antichrist was
already in the world in the generation of the Apostles, as testified to by two
witnesses, John and Paul. Paul specified it first, as the
Thessalonian letters were earlier than John’s letters.
“For the mystery of iniquity doth already
work: only he who now [restrains it] will [restrain it], until he
be taken out of the way” (II Thessalonians 2:7).
John was even clearer, as he specifically identified
Paul’s mysterious entity, who he said was associated with lawlessness
(the word “iniquity” equivocates with lawlessness) is
the Spirit of Antichrist.
“Every spirit that confesseth not
that Jesus [is the Christ]…is that spirit of antichrist,
whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now is it already
in the world” (I John 4:3).
The pivotal demarcation point is the removal of the
restrainer, which the Scripture tells us will enable the wicked spirit to go on
to control all those that dwell upon the earth. The text tells us the evil
ascends from “the bottomless pit” – which is not a literal
place, but recognizes the fact that evil has no limit, concerning how far it
will progressively leaven vessels it inhabits. This is, until it destroys
“The beast that thou sawest was, and
is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into
perdition” (Revelation 17:8).
In our earlier writings, the LORD had revealed the twin
tiers of earthly kingdoms, largely found in the book of Daniel.
It is now overwhelmingly obvious that Daniel saw two cyclical sequences of
kingdoms, which are separated by the central event of all history – the
crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The imagery described in Daniel established the
patterns of prophecy, seen in the amazing dream of Nebuchadnezzer. Believers
know the king dreamed of a great composite statue, with a head of gold, arms of
silver, a brass belly and thighs, and legs of iron. The Scripture itself
records Daniel’s God given interpretation of the four kingdoms of Babylon,
the Persian Union of the Medes and the Persians (imaged as the silver
arms), the Grecian Empire of Alexander the Great, whereas the fourth
kingdom of Rome, was only vaguely predicted.
After that last kingdom, the Scripture tells of the
epic introduction of the incarnation of Christ.
“In the days of these kings shall the
God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed…and it
shall stand for ever” (Daniel 2:44).
About 30 years ago, God revealed the second set of four
kingdoms in Daniel 7, mirrored the prophet’s first four, but they
occurred after the kingdom of God arrived, in the second of three eras of man.
These four kingdoms, likened as kingdoms resembling a
lion, bear, leopard, and Diverse beast, are England, Russia, Germany,
and America, and they “double” the pattern seen in Babylon,
Persia, Greece, and Rome. Although we have extensively published and broadcast
this prophetic revelation for decades, just as the Christian church has
rejected the truth about the Rapture Cult, this knowledge has
been suppressed, and even censored.
It is now abundantly evident that part of the
LORD’s plan is to carefully draw those believers He has chosen to receive
this revelation, to guide them through the perilous times in which we find
ourselves, in accord with the prophesied end of the age, when He releases
the Devils to take the balance of this lost generation into perdition.
This pattern, which is yet another example of Sequential
Recapitulation, is a “doubling” of the account of the Gadarene
(also called the Gergesenes) madmen. This dreadful sequence is a supernatural
“doubling” of that seen when the Devils were cast out of the
vessels the LORD has chosen, but the rest of humanity is the Spiritually
unclean, who are destined for destruction.
Even the LORD’s journey from heaven to earth is
seen in this magnificent account. For instance, He came over to the
“other side” of the Spiritual sea.
“And they came over unto the other
side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes...[and] there met him
two possessed with devils coming out of the tombs” (Mark 5:1, Matthew
Obviously, this is the well known account of the
collective cluster of Demons identified as Legion, and it speaks of the
Collective that is scheduled to capture the entire world (see the Christian
Media book The Collective for more on this). Clearly, it is
an important tale as it anticipates a much larger scope when the event is
“And Jesus asked him, saying, what is
thy name? And he said Legion: because many devils were entered into him” (Luke
Note that the devils had to ask Jesus to remove the
restraint, which apparently kept them from entering “the whole
herd,” an act that was evidently forbidden to them.
“So the devils besought him, saying,
If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the [Spiritually unclean]
herd of swine. And he said unto them, Go, and when they were come out, they
went down into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of
swine ran violently a steep place, into the sea, and perished in the waters”
The Prophetic Parallel of this is destined to
occur to all mankind that has not been chosen by the LORD to receive the
kingdom prepared by the Father before the foundation of the world. Now that the
“restrainer” has been “taken out of the way” (II
Thessalonians 2:7), and the Era of Antichrist is well
underway, the full manifestation of this terrible tragedy is coming to pass.
To put it another way, the entire world of lost
humanity is prefigured in the herd of “swine.” The Gadarene madmen
who dwelled “in the tombs” but were delivered by JESUS,
anticipate the chosen of the LORD, who are redeemed and out of the reach of the
We even see the Christian age in this narrative, when
Christ goes back to heaven, and instructs those He has saved to bear witness to
the wonderful redemptive work of the Savior.
“And when he was come [back]
into the ship [the Christians] that had been possessed with the devil
prayed him that [they] might be with him” (Mark 5:18).
told the redeemed they were to return to their own “house,” and
testify concerning the light of God to all who would listen.
“Go home to thy friends, and tell
them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath compassion on thee.
And he went his way, and published throughout the whole city how great things
Jesus had done unto him” (Mark 5:19, Luke 8:39)
