As I did my research for The Spirit of Prophecy, I came up with the idea that it is in Satan’s interest to produce a pseudo, or decoy, Tribulation period. Furthermore it also appears that this idea provides an explanation for much of the End Times prophecies in the bible.
At the time this seemed like a minor discovery, but in hindsight it appears to be one of the more significant ideas I have ever come across.
In Jeremiah 16 God told Israel that He would bring one Tribulation upon them, after he brings them back to the land.
Jeremiah 16:18 “And first I will recompense their iniquity and their sin double; because they have defiled my land, they have filled mine inheritance with the carcases of their detestable and abominable things.
21 Therefore, behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know mine hand and my might; and they shall know that my name is The LORD.”
At first glance it may appear that I am saying something unbiblical. That God will bring two Tribulations upon Israel. This is not the case. I am saying that the first one is a Church-age war, not Armageddon, and after this God will bring the real Tribulation upon Israel, and the whole earth.
This is why I have called it a “Pseudo-Tribulation”. It is a fake, designed to lead Israel and the world to accept the Antichrist at the time when they expect their messiah to appear. Actually it is a real fulfillment of prophecy, but when it is interpreted as Armageddon, it becomes a trap!
For years I had heard reports of New Age prophecies that explain-away things like the rapture of the Church. That “space aliens” would transfer those unable to transition into the “new paradigm”, into another dimension for “retraining”. Satan has been anticipating the rapture for some time, and is busy providing an alternative explanation.
The New Age has frequently made prophecies that echo the biblical End Times prophecies. Even Hitler’s “Thousand Year Reich” was a counterfeit of the millennial reign of Christ, spoken of in Revelation chapter 20.
Some months after The Spirit of Prophecy was published, I was surprised to find that the artwork in the Denver International Airport seems to confirm my thesis. As you view these pictures from vigilantcitizen.com you will notice that they parallel the biblical scenario of world chaos (the Tribulation), world war with an Antichrist-like person (Armageddon), and then, after his death, the rebirth into a New World Order of peace and safety, for the survivors (the millennial reign of Christ).
You will also notice that these murals only show these events occurring once, like the biblical account. Jesus, however, told us that the sign of the end would be “wars and rumors of wars”. It is my belief that this phrase encompasses this pseudo-Tribulation period.
“And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.” (Matt 24:6)
Let me ask you this; Since the world has seen almost 2,000 years of continuous warfare, why would Jesus’ followers be troubled by just another war? Why would He make a point to tell them not to be troubled? The answer is rather simple; Christians could easily be troubled by these things, because they look like the Tribulation period itself!
Have you ever asked the question “Why would New Age pagans make predictions that are so close to the truth?” The answer is rather simple. So simple that most have missed it! They are referring to a counterfeit Tribulation, Antichrist, and Armageddon!
Many people living in those days will begin to say “Maybe we were wrong, the rapture isn’t pre-trib after all.” When the rapture actually does occur, shortly after the Gog-Magog war, these same people will be saying “That wasn’t the rapture, those people were taken in judgment, because they were not ready to participate in the kingdom of God on earth, the New Age!”
A careful study of the Tribulation period, in Revelation chapters 4-19, will reveal what the actual Tribulation really will look like. You must interpret these passages literally. The creatures described are not helicopters, or some other man-made creation. They are supernatural judgments from God, and probably demonic. When the Euphrates river dries up, to allow the kings of the east to cross into Israel, it is because of a major drought, and not because some dams are closed!
Allegorical interpretations of Scripture always lead to dangerous conclusions! It is a literal historical book, and was meant to be taken literally, unless the context itself indicates that allegory is used. This principle applies even to the prophetic passages.
It is no wonder that New Age leader Alice Bailey, believed the Christian Church would lead the world into the New Age! “Christians” who see this counterfeit, and believe it is the Tribulation, will indeed be ready to accept, and support, the Antichrist!
Now take a look at the artwork from the Denver International Airport, and see if you can find the parallels:
Most airports have aircraft as gate guardians, but Denver has the pale horse of the Apocalypse, complete with glowing red eyes.
Here we have the death of the Church age. You see all kinds of animals stuffed in glass boxes, and three girls representing various races and faiths, lying in coffins. You also see a forest on fire, and a city burning in the background. Evidently the Church has fulfilled its purpose and must be gotten rid of.
This girl with a yellow star of David, and clutching a bible is symbolic of the end of Judeo-Christian civilization.
This military person represents a dictator who comes to take peace from the earth. The implication is that this is the Antichrist, but the evidence is that he is just another counterfeit. The dove, of course, represents peace, and is being slaughtered by this dictator.
The New Age of Peace and Safety. The dictator of the previous mural is now dead, and the children of the world are coming together, bringing their weapons to a German boy who is pounding them into tools.
All the children are happy because everyone else is dead, and the world is no longer overpopulated. Who is the mystical person in the middle? Sinister Sites seems to think it is Jesus. I think it is the false prophet of the book of Revelation. The mythical plant that everyone is staring at is the Antichrist. The artist doesn’t know who he is just yet, so he draws him symbolically, as a life-giving plant. Notice the animals that were dead in a previous mural are now alive again.
Just as Jesus is the source of life, and eternal life, the Antichrist will attempt to duplicate Jesus’ abilities. The world will worship him because they think he can give them life.
Some of the websites I viewed talk about a series of underground buildings, apparently costing billions of dollars, buried at the site. Reports surfaced as early as 1995 that there was an underground complex at the DIA, and many have speculated that it is some kind of prison system for dissenters. Others try do debunk these ideas, stating that it is just the underground railway system between the terminals.
I don’t know if there is any truth to the rumors. One thing I do know, however, is people don’t spend billions of dollars on concentration camps, and they especially don’t bury them underground. It’s far easier, and cheaper, to put a bullet in your head and put you underground. If there is anything besides the underground railway system down there, in keeping with the theme of the artwork of the DIA, it is likely some sort of bunker system for certain people to hide in while the “Tribulation” is going on above ground.
I use quotation marks around “Tribulation” because I am certain the tribulation period the murals speak of is not the Tribulation of the book of Revelation. As I have documented in other posts, and above, the biblical wars referred to in Psalm 83, and in Ezekiel 38-39, are Church-age wars that appear to form the framework of a false Tribulation period. Don’t get me wrong, they will be true fulfillments of prophecy, it is the interpretation of them that presents some problems.
This last mural appears to show life being “seeded” on earth by aliens, and the two alien heads at the top appear to be watching us. This is the logical conclusion of the evolutionary hypothesis. Evolution has utterly failed to explain the origin of life on earth, and so this is their back-up explanation. All it does, though, is put the problem off into outer space where it can’t be tested. Who gave the aliens life, in the first place?
In chapter 9 of The Spirit of Prophecy I tackled the idea of aliens and UFOs, and demonstrated that every “close encounter” with these beings is actually a close encounter with fallen angels. The idea that aliens “seeded” life on earth is an attack on the bible, and is right in concert with the basic philosophy of the evolutionary hypothesis. This idea will result in the armies of the world attempting to fight-off Jesus Christ when He returns.
There are many more pictures from the Denver International Airport that you can view on Sinister Sites and other blogs. My point in including them here, is just to show that Satan is very busy working on his counterfeits. These counterfeits do indeed appear similar to the real thing. The whole point of Satan’s counterfeits is to confuse the world in order to cause them to support his man, instead of the God/man Jesus Christ.
Soldiers around the world learn the tactics of their most likely enemies, as a part of their training. Christians ought to know the tactics of their enemy, without falling into his trap.
