Quotes

Hal Lindsey: I believe that what we're seeing in the world today is the fulfillment of these ancient prophecies written between 2,000 and 3,500 years ago. As the world staggers from one crisis to another, I believe that we're racing on a countdown to the end of history as we know it.

the pre wrath rapture trickel down economics salvation?

Was the rapture the greatest lie of the ufo crazy great awakening and prohibition period? The pre wrath rapture the united states achilles heel. The belief chrisitans can assume control with out fear of prosecution only to persecute others and then a trumps sounds and they go off to glory to escape 666 and what not. WRONG.There could in theory be one yet do not underestimate satan or an enemy state who could use this book and the end chapter against a lazy complacent nation and planet who forgot the lesson of 1923-45. To the athiest this book is a commentary on that era...to a believer on both satanic and christian sides the chronicle on variables to the route of mankind. Something to think about. Did the far right ever think THEY could put him into power like in germany 1933..as ellen white's theory foretold.
