Future Visit from the Past? :: By Terry James

An emailer recently wrote concerning his observations regarding the unending attacks on former President Donald Trump. His thoughts, plus Todd Strandberg’s Nearing Midnight column commentary, “The Death of Justice in America,” of June 19 on Raptureready.com, evoked my own desire to delve deeper into what this increasingly virulent assault by US officialdom might portend, prophetically speaking.

Keith, the emailer, in effect, wrote in part:

“Make no mistake about it. The arrest of Trump by WANNABE DICTATOR JOE BIDEN (a Fox News Headline says) GREATLY INCREASES THE DANGER OF A NAZI STYLE HOLOCAUST! The Headline by Fox Editor was very accurate when it said, ‘WANNABE DICTATOR SPEAKS AT THE WHITE HOUSE AFTER HAVING HIS RIVAL ARRESTED.’ The headline editor was fired by Fox News for posting this truthful headline. This is a real threat to our safety and liberties. If the wicked government can take down Trump, no one else is safe.”

My thoughts then went to all of the ways this administration and the federal government have weaponized the American system of justice and continue to use it as a bludgeon against political opposition.

We remember FBI treatment given Trump team members General Michael Flynn, Peter Navarro, and a number of others. Some were met at their front doors by SWAT teams brandishing automatic weapons while the victims of the assaults were still in their pajamas and nightgowns. Their children were subjected to the humiliating phony arrests as well.

My thoughts went next to a novel I wrote thirty years ago, titled Jacob’s Trouble 666. (It is still available on Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/Jacobs-Trouble-666-Terry-James-ebook/dp/B07JKDW3BV/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1keywords=jacobs+trouble+666qid=1619794909sr=8-1)

It depicts the time leading up to the Rapture and forward into the Tribulation era, but it is the scene leading up to the Rapture I remember writing in thinking on this commentary.

The character I created, an old man—younger than I now am—was the head of an organization called PAL, standing for Preservers of American Liberty. He was originally from a nation under the former Soviet Union. He was a Christian and led the group of young men and women dedicated to fighting against the tyranny that was about to take over in the United States. These diabolists whom PAL opposed were all of what we might now term the “Deep State.”

A couple of agents from a clandestine service came to the old man’s Rockville, Maryland, home and threatened him. They roughed him up, leaving him bleeding.

The agents commanded him to desist from his organization’s efforts to oppose things going on in the nation. If he didn’t, they would be back, and things would not go as well as this particular visit.

In fact—rather in fiction—they (or someone or something) did return to finish the job when he wouldn’t desist from his leading his PAL organization. He was murdered but was useful to the Lord’s work even through death when the Rapture took place. I’ll show my commercial crassness side and let you get the book to find out how Dr. Hugo Marchek served in this way.

I remember thinking while creating this scene that surely this kind of thing was a long way off. But my thought was that this was the scene as it was supposed to be presented.

Turns out the American law enforcement’s “alphabet agencies” have swiftly grown to be more Orwellian than my imagination conceived all those years. Having watched developments, I now sometimes wonder when the alphabet agents might pay this old guy (yours truly) a visit! –Thus, the article title: Future Visit from the Past?

I’m not the only one who considers the possibilities in this regard. Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who has thrown his hat into the political ring in the Democrat presidential nomination process, seems to have similar questions. And he, more than most, has reason to think in this vein. His uncle JFK and father RFK, as we all know, were both assassinated.

Mr. Kennedy has stated on several occasions he believes the CIA was involved in President Kennedy’s assassination. He has said he is aware that he, himself, might be in danger, and he indicates that it is the U.S. clandestine-type agencies that are worth guarding against.

Conspiracy theorist and Democratic 2024 presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. believes his uncle was assassinated by the CIA. He told Joe Rogan that he’s “aware” that he, too, could be targeted by U.S. intelligence — but he doesn’t “live in fear” of the possibility.

Kennedy has repeatedly stated his belief that the Central Intelligence Agency was responsible for the assassinations of his uncle, former President John F. Kennedy, as well as his father Robert F. Kennedy. Rogan brought it up during his podcast on Thursday. “You’re talking about your uncle, who was assassinated, and you believe the intelligence agencies were a part of that,” he asked Kennedy. “What happens to you?”

“I gotta be careful,” Kennedy replied. “I’m aware of that, I’m aware of that danger. I don’t live in fear of it — at all. But I’m not stupid about it, and I take precautions.” (“RFK Jr. Tells Joe Rogan He’s ‘Aware’ of Possibility CIA Could Assassinate Him,” Yahoo News, June 2023)

You notice it’s a Yahoo News rendition of the story, so Kennedy is termed at the outset as a “conspiracy theorist.” He is not in the good graces of the ultra-liberal Democrat upper strata or of their mainstream mouthpiece outlets like Yahoo News.

American government and the New World Order minions of Ephesians 6:12 are building toward the time when the Antichrist regime can take its place as the most tyrannical system of all history. This can’t happen until the Restrainer, resident within each believer, is no longer on planet Earth.

You don’t want to be left here when life imitates art, as in my fictional account of Jacob’s Trouble 666. You want to be one who hears Jesus Call, “Come up here!” (Revelation 4: 2).

Here is how to make sure you go to the safety of Christ at the Rapture.

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:9-10).
