1 Hour After Rapture

1 Hour After Rapture

Susie and I were able to watch the most recent Left Behind movie, Rise of the Antichrist in our local theater. The time span of the plot covers a two-week time segment roughly six months after the Rapture.

It was decently produced and actually employed a lot of things we’ve written about like “The Days of Noah” prophecy and the Temple being rebuilt on the Temple Mount without having to touch the Dome of the Rock. Kudos!

It also was up to date enough to mention the va((ines and Mark of the Beast technology.

But there are some disappointing non-dispensational uses of scripture peppered throughout the movie. And their “how to be saved” explanation was painful to watch (“pray this prayer”).(1)

However, it’s definitely worth seeing—if for no other reason than so few Christian movies make it to the big screen in local theaters. We want to encourage Christian producers.

But what really bothered me was how life was presented after the Rapture. Six months after what they call “the vanishing,” the world appears fairly normal. Really?

They mentioned a few problems due to the vanishing, but they show daily activities continuing as always—cars and people were moving normally on the streets, the electricity was working, cell phones were fine, all with little or no concern.

They presented it this way because in the movie a pastor claims that God’s wrath doesn’t come until the second half of the 7-year Tribulation. This is a terrible exegesis of scripture that severely distorts the truth. Makes me want to scream.

What IS going to happen immediately following our breath-taking exodus is that everything immediately changes for the worse, worldwide. Chaos will reign. Look at the right side of this chart.

Does that look like life as usual? Hardly. How about this chart showing how many people die in the first half of the Tribulation:

Assuming about 8 billion people are on the planet today, the Bible tells us that one-fourth of the world’s population, 2 billion, die in the first year or so of the Tribulation.

By the half-way mark of the Tribulation, another 1/3 of the world’s population, another 2 billion, die from war, starvation and plague (possibly results of the worldwide va((ines distributed prior to Rapture).

Any way you slice it, things are NOT normal! If Revelation 18 is the United States, and I believe it is, then EVERYTHING normal in our nation comes screeching to halt in one hour.

"for in one hour such great wealth has been laid waste!" Rev. 18:17 

Electricity will stop, food and fuel will be unobtainable, and evil will rule the day.

Believers Martyred In First Half
Another clue that the first half of the Tribulation is officially part of God’s Wrath on earth is what we can see from scripture about those left behind...those who realize they missed the Rapture.

An apparently huge number of people repent, get saved by faith and refuse to go along with the New World Order’s demands. They are willing to lose their life over their faith in Jesus.

…I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained; Rev. 6:9

This group is so huge they’re “uncountable” in number.

“…a great multitude which no one could count, Rev. 7:9b

We’ll see these martyred Believers who missed the Rapture in heaven. Think about that next time you’re witnessing. If they don’t get saved today, they may change their tune in the Tribulation!

This martyrdom occurs during the Seal Judgments in the first half of the Tribulation, therefore we obviously know for sure that this occurs in the first 3 1/2 years of the Tribulation.

Now also notice that the first half of the Tribulation is part of the “Great Tribulation.”

“These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” Rev. 7:14

Now look at what we learn from these verses about the characteristics of the FIRST HALF of the Tribulation:

“They will hunger no longer, nor thirst anymore; nor will the sun beat down on them, nor any heat; for the Lamb in the center of the throne will be their shepherd, and will guide them to springs of the water of life; and God will wipe every tear from their eyes.” Rev. 7:16-17

Starvation, lack of water, searing heat … all in the first half (if not the first year) of the Tribulation. Rapture changes all life everywhere. Just like the flood did.

This incorrect teaching that the first half of Tribulation is not God’s wrath is primarily based on two reasons.

1st Reason

he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength* in the cup of His anger; Rev. 14:10

Since the Mark of the Beast comes in the 2nd half of the Tribulation, the speculation is that the first half of the Tribulation must be “diluted wrath.”

But that’s not what God's Word says. Rather, God’s wrath is awful for the entire 7 years. But because He really really doesn’t like those taking the Mark of the Beast, this verse says if they do take it, they get even worse wrath.

“And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” Rev. 14:11

2nd Reason

They argue that the first half of Tribulation is man doing things to man and the second half is God doing things from heaven. Not true. The first half of Tribulation is also from God.

Seal Judgments
Jesus is the instigator who is releasing the Seals, orchestrating from heaven the very first things that happen in the first half of the Tribulation.

Then I saw when the Lamb [Jesus] broke one of the seven seals, Rev. 6:1

When He [Jesus] broke the second seal,… Rev. 6:3

When He [Jesus] broke the third seal,… Rev. 6:5

When the Lamb [Jesus] broke the fourth seal,… Rev. 6:7

The fourth seal is the one that kills 1/4 of the earth’s population, 2 billion people.

when the Lamb [Jesus] broke the fifth seal,… Rev. 6:9

when He [Jesus] broke the sixth seal,… Rev. 6:12

The sixth seal is the one that has an earthquake so large it moves mountains and islands “out of their places.” It is so scary that the kings of the earth, along with everyone else, say:

“hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb [Jesus]; for the great day of their** wrath has come,…” Rev. 6:17

When the Lamb [Jesus] broke the seventh seal,… Rev. 8:1

Trumpet Judgments
On the heels of the 7 seals come the 7 trumpets, all still taking place in the first half of the Tribulation.

Trumpet #1 - 1/3 of the earth burned up. Rev. 8:7

Trumpet #2 - 1/3 of the fish in the sea die. Rev. 8:9

Trumpet #3 - 1/3 of the rivers contaminated. Rev. 8:10

Trumpet #4 - 1/3 of the stars don’t shine. Rev. 8:12

Trumpet #5 - Demons from bottomless pit released. Rev. 9:2

Trumpet #6 - 1/3 of mankind killed. Rev. 9:15

All of that wrath, God’s Wrath, is in the first half of the Tribulation. The wrath is horrific to say the least. So it really irks me when people try to unscripturally downplay the severity of the first 3 1/2 years.

So, again, do see the movie but don’t be fooled. The way the producers of Left Behind portray the first half of the Tribulation is ridiculous and has no scriptural basis!

On the upside, by reading all that is dead ahead, it’s a great reminder of why it’s better to get saved prior to the Rapture. We’re going to miss a lot of pain.

It’s also hugely important to plant salvation seeds in the minds of those who are non-Believers. Who knows how much time we have left. So pray for opportunities to be used by God, and be bold when the Lord opens a door of opportunity!

praying … that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, Col. 4:3



  • * “Mixed in full strength” is translated “undiluted” in the King James.
  • **Interesting Trinity reference

This link is slow to load, and sometimes gives you a "too busy" message. But if you can get it to play, oh boy. A great interview that quite candidly ties all the new cancers cropping up directly to the va((ines.

The Roots of the Va((ine Rollout

33-minute Video


Well this one will put some pep in your step today. On the heels of last week's Shasta interview, Andrew Huff, a whistleblower, has more info on the DOD being behind the va((ine from the beginning. CQLJ! Huff doesn't seem to have a clue about Bible prophecy, so you have to fill in the blanks as you watch.

If you found that video interesting, there's more here:


There are also two more links on this subject, scroll down to "EVEN MORE ON..."

Even More On Va((ine Roots From DOD?

15-minute Video


These 15 minutes will blow your mind. Can't say too much in the description, but certainly worth watching! On January 24, 2023 Katherine Watt was an attendee at a press conference that discussed the ongoing emergency use rollout of bio-weapons being marketed as Covid va((ines. She discusses the legal framework they use to circumvent the WHO/BIS/DOD initiatives that undermine sovereignty.

And Shasta, with all her details regarding DOD is the culprit,  gets interviewed by the Corona Investigative Committee in Germany. Wow, she had them squirming. CLICK HERE

And yet another one HERE. Just shows this is real, our government has been captured behind the scenes by the bad guys. We only see and know what they want us to see and know. CQLJ!

Va((ine Passport In The Pipeline?



The ICD (International Classification of Disease) codes are being updated to include several classifications for vaccine status. Interestingly there is no code for "Fully Va((inated"...only various stages of "not fully vaccinated." So it looks like they expect various forms of Covid va((ines to be ongoing.

If you want more info on the coming va((ine passports, here's a long, slow video that is sprinkled with good info. CLICK HERE These guys think it will be 2024 before they close down the country again, so that's a green light for our fall 2023 cruise...just saying.

JB Hixon's Podcast Interview With Bill Perkins



Ok, listening to this you'll see why I stick to writing, not talking! 🙂 The discussion mainly centers around the Day/Age Theory. That's a tough one to explain without pictures!! But JB, who has spoken many times in the past at Steeling the Mind conferences on some gritty subjects, sounds pretty good.

Some claim we're in a behind-the-scenes war with China. If so, we're losing!

I'm sure you'll be shocked to find out that not one mention of the va((ine was in this article.

So, if we were at war our enemies would be trying to sneak terrorists into our country for future attacks. We, it seems, despite the porous border, are catching at least SOME of them sneaking in. 17 in December, 38 for the year.

FYI, I think the USA goes down right after the Rapture. I wrote about it HERE. And have a more detailed video HERE

The Big Problem With CBDCs

CBDCs (digital currency) are fast approaching. The powers that be see using them to exercise maximum control over people.

CBDCs are easily confiscated. With one keystroke your money can be frozen, expanded, limited to a geographical area, or limited to a specific time period to spend/use or it becomes heavily taxed or even worthless.

Can you imagine the Biden Regime deciding who gets how much, and for what length of time?

They could, and would, reward people via social engineering. What you say on social media could cause you to lose your ability to travel.

You could be locked down to one mile for purchases.

And best of all, you could be rewarded with extra money in your accounts if you got all your shots.

Your account would be deducted if you purchased too much meat, or rewarded if you ate bugs.

So if they get these things in place, we're basically using a system that will ultimately fulfill Rev. 13-16

However, our American dollar is toast in the long run. The Satanists/Globalists have worked on debasing it for decades. When the dollar fails, there most likely be a push for digits, but a country's worthless fiat currency is still a worthless fiat currency, digits or no digits.

Ron Paul said: "What none of the (politicians) will admit is that the market is more powerful than the central banks and all the economic planners put together. Although it may take time, the market always wins."

So only if someone controls the entire world's goods will it work. Hmmm...that day will come. But we won't be here.

"As a medical student and researcher, I staunchly supported the efforts of the public health authorities when it came to COVID-19. I believed that the authorities responded to the largest public health crisis of our lives with compassion, diligence, and scientific expertise. I was with them when they called for lockdowns, vaccines, and boosters.

"I was wrong. We in the scientific community were wrong. And it cost lives.

"I can see now that the scientific community from the CDC to the WHO to the FDA and their representatives, repeatedly overstated the evidence and misled the public about its own views and policies, including on natural vs. artificial immunityschool closures and disease transmissionaerosol spreadmask mandates, and vaccine effectiveness and safety, especially among the young.

"All of these were scientific mistakes at the time, not in hindsight. Amazingly, some of these obfuscations continue to the present day."

(One of many) Allison Krug, an epidemiologist who co-authored a study that found teenage boys were more likely to suffer heart inflammation after COVID-19 vaccination than COVID-19 infection, recounted explaining to her doctor why she was refusing a booster and said her doctor agreed with her position.


Regarding Jordan Walker, the nutty out-of-control doc caught on tape last week by Veritas:

People are hitting Google like crazy with queries regarding Jordon Walker, Pfizer, and Veritas.

Google manually interferes with the searches, returning wishy-washy “these results are changing rapidly” screens instead of actual links.

So, now we have a pretty clear smoking gun involving collusion between Pfizer and Google to suppress the story. Then everything, anything, having to do with Jordon Walker, MD gets memory holed. Wiped from the Internet, including the Wayback machine.

And then the chaos agents, bots, and trolls descend on all social media channels, sowing doubt that Jordon Walker is even a real person. Floating paranoid conspiracy theories that this is all a big deep-fake setup of Veritas, O’Keefe, and myself. Which of course get amplified by the usual actors.

Now THAT is an example of Fifth Gen Warfare power! And by the way, I gently advise that readers who were aware of this as it was happening set a check-bit in their brains on the names of those chaos agents who actively promoted this false narrative.

Some show the signs of true controlled opposition, and some appear to have been acting as pollinating bees. By their actions you will know them. My advice, if you were one of the bees, is to own up and clearly acknowledge the documentation demonstrating that this Pfizer nightmare is real. Blog excerpt by Dr. Robert Malone, 1/30/23
