'Rapture Palooza' Attacks Book Of Revelation First - 'This is The End', 'Final', Nicolas Cage 'Left Behind' Movies Next

Bumped back to the top as the second movie in less than a week to openly mock the absolutely serious subject of "The Revelation of Jesus Christ" [Rev. 1:1] - "This Is The End" - is released today 6/12/12 [see below]. Scripture tells us that 'the end' will be a time of "men's hearts failing them for fear" (Luke 21:26), but Talmudic Hollywood, which of late has declared open season on Christianity, has purposed instead to make it a matter of ridicule for millions of moviegoers. Scripture also tells us that "...there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming?" (2Peter 3:3-4). Looks like these must be the last days then. Maranatha
This first section reposted from 5-17-13: New Movie "Rapture-Palooza" Mocks Book of Revelation, Second Coming Of Jesus Christ; Opens Today 6-7-13

Apparently Hollywood has decided to rewrite the fundamentally flawed (scripturally inaccurate) 'Left Behind' movie series with this soon to be released low-budget production called "Rapture-Palooza". While the production was low-budget by Hollywood standards (2 million), the effort to mock and blaspheme Christianity, the Word of God - in particular the Book of Revelation, and the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ Himself...was not constrained in any way. The result is a highly concerted effort of absolute ridicule of all these, including 'lasering' the Lord Jesus Christ at the 'second coming' [1:25]...with another actor 'mocking' God the Father, portraying the movie-version of him then appearing to say "you BBQ-ed my son".

The video below is one of two official trailers. It is actually the 'clean' version. Incredibly blasphemous content aside, with regard to "language and crude sexual references", vile and filthy are two adjectives that come to mind to describe the second "official" trailer. At any rate, a film like this being released is a clear indication that the same Talmudic Hollywood Antichrist-animosity displayed a year ago with the release of the show "Good Christian B*****s" [link] is now being taken to an even more open and hateful display than has ever been seen in this country (note also the opening date 6-7-13 - a double '13'). Oh well, praise the Lord all the more believer (Ps. 34:1). Anathema maranatha*

Gal.6:7 'Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap'

Rapture-Palooza  "In Movie Theaters: Friday, June 7, 2013: Two battle their way through a religious apocalypse on a mission to defeat the Anti-Christ...When the Apocalypse actually happens and a billion people are raptured up to heaven, Lindsey (Kendrick) and her boyfriend Ben (Daley) are left behind in suburban Seattle. The young couple try their best to lead a normal life surrounded by talking locusts, blood rain showers, and pot-smoking wraiths. But when The Beast (Robinson) makes his home base in their neighborhood, Lindsey finds herself the object of his affection. With the help of her family, friends, and a lawn-mowing zombie neighbor, the young couple set off to stop the Anti-Christ from taking her as his bride... and just maybe, saving the world in the process - Official version from lionsgate.com on April 19, 2013. Rated R for language including crude sexual references throughout, and for drug use."

2Thes. 1:7-9 'And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power'

*'If Any Man Love Not The Lord Jesus Christ, Let Him Be Anathema Maranatha' 1Cor. 16:22

6-7-13 follow up:  Rapture movies are apparently all-the-rage these days. Besides this proud and open attack on the Word of God titled 'Rapture Palooza' (above) which opens today 6-7-13, there are at least three more rapture/left-behind movies 'coming soon', including an actual big budget Hollywood remake of the Kirk Cameron 2001 'Left Behind' movie, due out sometime next year starring big name Nicolas Cage:

This is The End - June 12; Partiers party on during the 'apocalypse'; (absolute mockery, intentionally crude, rude, and perverted as could possibly be)

Final - Premier June 27; In theaters October: The "scariest Christian movie of the decade" pastors, politicians, leaders, and Hollywood stars will join hundreds of invitees from more than six countries to watch the premiere on June 27. This film is supposed to be a "realistic" portrayal of the days immediately following the Rapture based on the novel. (link)

Left Behind starring Nicolas Cage - TBA 2014 "Tim LaHaye, one of the Left Behind authors, read the movie script and said: “It’s probably the worst script I’ve ever read.”

Note: The 'Final' movie, and no doubt the Nicolas Cage movie as well, will be holding to the general theme of most 'serious' rapture movies, similar to the original "Left Behind" series, in that the plot will depict a scenario whereby millions of people worldwide disappear with the result being that the world is immediately plunged into total chaos. Aside from any other consideration for the moment, such as a correct eschatology concerning the 'rapture' of the true bride of Christ being non-existent in the movies overall, the idea of "millions" of people being raptured is itself not found in scripture. The 'rapture' yes, 'millions' no. It is not the multitudes who merely 'profess' (Matt. 7:22-23), but the 'few' who truly possess (Matt. 7:14), whom the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ has promised: 'I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth" (Rev. 3:10)

Only "a few", we are told, actually possess new life in Christ. Strong's Greek definition for the English word 'few' used in Matthew 7:14 gives this: 3641 oligos ol-ee'-gos - puny (in extent, degree, number, duration or value)

Puny. A "puny" number actually enter through the "strait gate" and then travel the "narrow way...which leadeth unto life". It is the "many", professing the name of Jesus all the while, that will nevertheless hear Him 'profess' to them: "I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity" (Matt. 7:23). In this our day, these are the apostate Laodiceans with their aberrant Christianity mentioned in the book of Revelation that, far from being 'raptured' to be forever with the Lord (1Thes. 4:17), will instead be spued out (Rev. 3:16). There will not be a few, but many in this company. Harsh reality. It is the clear teaching of scripture though.

The Word of God teaches the rapture of the true Church, which is the very 'body of Christ'. Many do not see it, but as stated numerous times, only one interpretation of "endtimes" can possibly be true. The teaching of the rapture is not found in any one verse per se, but is interwoven throughout scripture, which is one reason many do not see it. That is for another time. All of this though to make the point that when this event does occur, and the 'puny few' are supernaturally taken to "the Father's house" (John 14:2-3) prior to the judgment of God being deservedly turned upon the Christ-rejecting Jews and this Christ-rejecting world at large, it most probably will pass relatively unnoticed. In other words, nothing like what is presented in these movies. Let us not be misunderstood though. The unparalleled time of trouble will without question come upon the earth (Matt. 24:21), but as to timing, there is no direct connection or correlation to the 'rapture'.

To sum it up, it is not only the open mockery of movies like 'This is the End' and 'Palooza' that are Devilish attacks on the Book of Revelation and the return of the Lord Jesus Christ, but these sensationalized, claimed to be 'serious' rapture-movies like 'Final' and 'Nicolas Cage - Left Behind' (and the three original 'Left Behind' movies as well), scripturally distorted as they are, are also utter corruptions of crucial eschatological truth. The effect of these movies, all of them, is very likely intended to marginalize those who will hold to these prophetic truths of scripture as the days of fulfillment draw ever closer. Oh well.

Obama Supports a Rapture Book !

Sixty million copies of "Left Behind" books have set new sales records. But Barack Obama quietly supports a different "Rapture" book, one that those mass-marketers hate!
As evangelicals know, the Left-Behind-promoted "Rapture to heaven" is an imminent, secret coming of Christ conveniently occurring before the approaching "Tribulation" (a.k.a. Antichrist's global reign of terror) so that "genuine" Christians will be safely in heaven before the Book of Revelation's disasters begin. And they're constantly told that their escapist "Pre-Tribulation Rapture" (hereafter: PTR) is Biblical and 2000 years old.
Aware that no official theology or organized church before 1830 had ever taught the PTR, one historian began focusing years ago on Britain and various individuals that had been suggested as possible originators of the PTR.
Unlike other prophecy researchers, he did on-site research throughout Britain and laboriously went through hard-to-locate works of all of those British writers to find out who indeed was first to use words and phrases such as "rapture," "imminent," "coming for," "coming with," "Antichrist," etc. He was shocked to discover that a young Scottish woman was the actual PTR originator in 1830, that London preacher Edward Irving obtained it from her, and that John Darby (long assumed to be the "father" of the system springing from the PTR) wasn't original on any important aspect of Bible prophecy!
Wondering how Obama is involved in all this? Not a few see him as either the Antichrist or someone who's preparing the way for that global dictator.
So in a sense Obama's anti-Christian and anti-American strategy has been giving support to the now-growing anti-PTR view - the followers of which have learned about the PTR's bizarre, 183-year-old, covered up history and are now prepping to survive during Antichrist's 3.5-year reign!
The nonfiction book Obama actually supports (without realizing it) is "The Rapture Plot" by journalist/historian Dave MacPherson. For a taste of his original research Google "Famous Rapture Watchers," "Pretrib Rapture Secrets," "Pretrib Rapture Politics," "Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty" and "Scholars Weigh My Research."
Since MacPherson is into activism as much as academics, young persons (who insist on facts and not opinions) appreciate his name-naming, tell-all approach.

The things you mention have all been hashed out over the years endlessly and are well known - including MacPherson's well known supposed scholarly work. Many rebuttals have been written to address his claims -

for example: Widely respected author John Walvoord has said:

"The whole controversy as aroused by Dave MacPherson's claims has so little supporting evidence, despite his careful research, that one wonders how he can write his book with a straight face. Pretribulationalists should be indebted to Dave MacPherson for exposing the facts, namely, that there is no proof that MacDonald or Irving originated the pretribulation rapture teaching"


"Any careful student of Darby soon discovers that he did not get his eschatological views from men, but rather from his doctrine of the church as the body of Christ, a concept no one claims was revealed supernaturally to Irving or Macdonald. Darby's views undoubtedly were gradually formed, but they were theologically and biblically based rather than derived from Irving's pre-Pentecostal group" (Walvoord, The Blessed Hope and the Tribulation, p. 47)

Multiple quotes from other teachers saying virtually the same thing could be referred to here, but it is not necessary.

What is very clear is that there are many that dispute the teaching of the 'rapture'...and that their minds are made up and no one is going to change it. This is understood.

Certainly it is no surprise to see any area of biblical truth come under Satanic assault - whether direct or sometimes by distortion (Left Behind books). The PTR is the target of both methods.

The point is that any arguments against the 'PTR' can be answered, and that it can be done not on the teaching of men but through the scriptures, although many would still rather spiritualize and allegorize away any literal meaning of the Word of God, especially when it comes to the topic of eschatology. With these not much can be done. So be it.

But then again, we know that the church today is thoroughly apostate - i.e. unregenerate, they have not eyes to see [John 3:3; 1Cor. 2:14].

As mentioned in the above post, the doctrine of the rapture is interwoven throughout the Word of God, it has to do with the unique calling and position of the true church, the body of Christ, as opposed to the Jews, the OT saints, and the multitude that will be saved during the tribulation [Rev. 7:9,14]. As the Head is in heaven, so shall the body be ere the judgment of God comes (Rev. 5:9,10). That is scripture. (see also 'not wrath but rapture for the regenerate' linked at bottom of post)

Anyway, attacks against this truth are to be expected...nothing to be put off by.
