Are we being "conditioned " for a "fake" rapture?

By Brandon Gallups
PPSIMMONS News & Ministry writer

With all the varying opinions on "end time prophecy" and specifically the timing and the circumstances surrounding the rapture I just cant help but wonder, "Are we being conditioned for a fake rapture"?

Based on the movie Rapture Palooza I believe that we are.

It is no secret that governments and organizations have used films and the media to condition or normalize us for certain events or behaviors. This was a strategy of Hitler in his takeover of Nazi Germany. This also seems to be being used in America today.

Think of the popular "Bourne" movies over the past few years. We were being completely conditioned for the normalizing of what litters our headlines everyday now, government spying, secret government programs, drones, attempted assassinations of American citizens, the US interfering in the business of sovereign nations and the list goes on. This is just one example of many "psyop" or "propaganda" films from recent history.

Lets take a look at the movie I started with, Rapture Palooza. Just from watching the trailers available on the web one can see the obvious conditioning for one of two scenarios.

Trailer HERE:

Scenario 1
Fake Rapture

As Christians we can be sure of this, the rapture of the church WILL happen! Many debate the timing and circumstances of the event though. So think of this, what better way to sideline Christians in the "last days" than to make them think they "missed" the rapture! If you been a Christian for most of your life and been taught the rapture and then wake up one day and are told that the "rapture" has occurred and you are still here wouldn't you be upset? You would probably want to give up maybe even renounce your faith. You would probably be a little more willing to take the coming "mark of the beast" or not resist when the government starts the round ups or imprisonments.

I just believe that if you can be so thoroughly convinced that everything you have ever been taught was wrong then you become easier to "handle".

So how could a "fake rapture" be pulled off? I can think of a couple ways pretty easily.

With technology advancing so quickly now what about the possibility of some type of extreme "hologram" technology. John speaks in Revelation about the "image" of the beast. What if the "images" of people can be portrayed as being taken up to "heaven"?

Notice all the talk of EMP attacks or even a "catastrophic" solar event that wipes out modern communication for an extended period of time. What if one of these "events" happens? It would be pretty easy to "disappear" a lot of people with no cell phone, Internet or even landline phone communication. Newer vehicles with their computer technology may not even work making it hard to travel to check on friends and family.

Either of these two could be "pulled off" with relative ease.

Jesus tells us that in those days even the very elect will be deceived if that were possible.

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
(Matthew 24:24 KJV)

Scenario 2
Christians experiencing Tribulation that have been taught they never would.

PPSIMMONS staff and I have often expressed our opinions that the "pretribulation rapture theory" will be used to sideline Christians in the "last days".

Again think of this, you have been taught your entire life that you will be "raptured" from the earth before things get bad, before the "antichrist" appears on the scene, before the "mark of the beast" comes into play, and then it doesn't happen like that!

Seems to me that again this could be very disheartening to many, may make some question or even renounce their faith, take "the mark" to avoid further persecution or death, sellout fellow believers and so on.

While I admit that both these scenarios and even the premise for this writing is purely speculation on my part I am 100% certain of the following:

1. This film was put out to at the very least make fun of and degrade Christians in general and specifically those of us screaming for the masses to wake up, that the end is soon! More likely it is conditioning for some kind of attempt to frustrate or even convince Christians that their faith is a lie.

2. We will experience tribulation and persecution before the rapture of the church and the return of Christ! Jesus told us this very plainly!

For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. (Matthew 24:21 KJV)

3. Jesus is coming back!

And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. (Revelation 11:15 KJV)
