Letter to Tribulation people,

Dear beloved who are reading this after a lot of people suddenly disappeared:

What I have heard offered for a "logical" explanation of this event, is that those who disappeared were simply unfit to be in the kingdom of the Christ (Antichrist). Please understand that I'm not speculating about the things that are happening all around you, but I have heard one example of how the Rapture might be explained away. You will be exposed to lying signs and wonders, which I take to mean that no effort will be spared in attempting to deceive you.

When I was on the earth, I got into a lot of trouble for pointing out that the State of Nebraska Capitol Building was in reality constructed for the purpose of serving as a great Baal temple, or Sun temple, and that it contained a Satanic priesthood, called the Innocents, who use the head of Satan as their emblem. I don't know if I'm right or not, but if it turns out that Lincoln, Nebraska is the nest of Satanism that I suspect it is, you should probably avoid it as a very hostile place to Christians - maybe even a site of human sacrifice.

I have often thought about what I would do if I discovered, to my horror, that I had been left behind. If I were convinced that I was living in the Tribulation, and could not live without taking the mark of the Beast, I would refuse the mark of the Beast, and make a public profession that Jesus is God come to us in the flesh, and the only way to the Father. Hopefully, doing that would get me executed quickly, which would prevent me from turning around and renouncing Jesus and accepting the mark as my suffering increased - maybe due to unbearable torture. It almost sounds like I'm advising you to commit suicide by letting them kill you as soon as possible, which I'm not. My understanding is that you're going to be slaughtered mercilessly, so voicing your faith in Jesus might encourage a wavering brother or sister to do likewise. Also, I would die with the peace of knowing that I was truly saved.

Yes, it makes me so sad to have to be writing these words to you, but it is only by the grace of God that I'm not with you. I resisted the Holy Spirit for a long time, and it seems too good to be true that I have been saved by Jesus for as rotten as I am, but remember how Paul stressed that he was unworthy of salvation for how he had persecuted the Church and stood by approvingly when Stephen was stoned. I am happy that people will still be saved during the Tribulation, and that the Bible will mean everything to you.

Read the Bible as much as you can, because that way you can be certain that you're drawing nigh to Jesus, and he will draw nigh to you. It is such a great honor for me to be counted worthy to offer you encouragement. Please choose everlasting life with Jesus and the rest of us.
