It is a rebranding of Agenda 21 by the United Nations and has 9 basic tenants.
- Move Citizens off private land and into urban housing.
- Create vast wilderness spaces inhabited by large carnivores.
- Eliminate cars and create “walkable” cities.
- Support chosen private businesses with public funds for “sustainable development.”
- Make policy decisions that favor the “greater good” over individuals.
- Drastically reduce the use of power, water, and anything else that creates “carbon pollution.”
- Use bureaucracies to make sweeping decisions outside of democratic processes.
- Increase taxes, fees, and regulations.
- Implement policies meant to incentivize a reduced population.
Keep the year, 2030 in your mind.
Now, you may be wondering why I deem this significant. Well, it has to do with the timing of the Rapture. The Rapture of the Church. The Rapture is an event that will take place sometime in the near future. Jesus will come in the air, catch up the Church from the earth, and then return to Heaven with the Church. In 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, we are given a clear description of the Rapture: “the dead in Christ will rise, then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord.”
OK, “sometime in the near future!” How near? Many of today’s latter-day pastors and prophets say that the countdown to the Rapture officially began when Israel became a sovereign nation. That occurred on May 14, 1948, but others say the countdown began when Israel took back, or recognized, Jerusalem as their capital, which was 1967.
The Rapture takes place 7 years before the final countdown of the Earth begins, known as the Tribulation Period. So, whatever date we come up with, we must subtract 7 years from it to allow for the Rapture.
Jesus was asked by his disciples how long would the world last and what would be the sign of his coming. You can read His answer in Matt. 24. He says in vs. 34, “This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.” In other words, what He was saying is that some of the generation of people alive and on the earth who see all these signs taking place would be alive to witness His coming. So, we ask ourselves, “How long is a generation?” The Bible answers that one for us in Psalms 90:10. “Our days on earth are seventy years; and if by reason of strength they are eighty years.” So, our time on Earth is 70 years on the average and 80 if we possess extra strength.
Now for some simple math: Starting with 1967, the date that Israel recognized Jerusalem as their true capital, and adding 70 years for the average lifetime of a man, we get 2037. Now let us subtract 7 years for the Rapture, and we arrive at 2030!!! And, now you know the rest of the story!! Coincidence? Maybe, maybe not!!
Some of you like to start counting from 1948. If you do that, then pack your Heavenly suitcase!
Your Brother in Christ,
