Why I Believe the Rapture Will Come Soon

By David J. Stewart | March 2011

Romans 8:22-23, “For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.”

What a precious Scripture. Romans 8:22 says that the whole creation groaneth “IN PAIN” together until now. There is suffering all throughout the world, amongst animals and people alike. All of creation is under the curse of sin. The Apostle Paul reminds us that our human bodies will be redeemed. Our souls were redeemed at Calvary and we are saved forever; but our bodies will not be redeemed until THE RAPTURE. What a day, what a day, that will be!!!

Whatever physical and emotional pain you may be suffering in this fleshly body will all be gone, taken away forever, when the Lord Jesus returns to get us. The Bible plainly teaches that the DEAD IN CHRIST (i.e., those who have already passed away) will be raised first, and then we who are alive and remain shall be CAUGHT UP (1st Thessalonians 4:17) into the air to meet the Lord. Amen and amen!

1st Thessalonians 4:16-18, For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”

Verse 18 says to comfort one another with these words, which is why I am writing this article and publishing it on the internet for you to read. Jesus PROMISED to come and get us, to bring us where He lives so we can be with Him (John 14:1-2). God cannot lie (Titus 1:2). I believe that the Lord's return will be very soon, and I want to share just a few reasons why I personally think so. I could give you plenty of Biblical reasons, but some of the most compelling reasons aren't even Biblical.

  1. The level of Satan worship in the world. Never before throughout history have so many people showed their allegiance to Satan as we see today. Hundreds of photos of celebrities are seen all over the internet of celebrities and famous people flashing Satan sign, called the “El Diablo” hand sign. Thousands of world leaders are members of the demonic bohemian Grove cult, who meet annually every July to worship a 40-foot owl, sacrificing a human being in a mock (allegedly mock) sacrifice. These are the world leaders who baby-sit the big red button. ACDC concerts show tens-of-thousands of fans all praising the Beast with horned hats, bragging about their choice to journey the Highway to Hell. If I didn't believe the Bible for the Bible's sake, then I would believe because of all the Satanists and occultists who believe and attack it.

    You may not believe in God; but a whole lot of people certainly believe in Satan and are showing their allegiance to him in their music, movies, and corporate symbols. Umpteen Rock band have blatantly shown their praises for the Devil. The Rolling Stones in 1968 released Our Satanic Majesties' Request, featuring the song, Sympathy for the Devil, a tribute to the Church of Satan and founder Anton LaVey. In 1971 Paul McCartney released RAM, a commonly worshipped symbol representing Satan, which The Rolling Stones placed on their album cover. Madonna worships Satan in her song, Beautiful Stranger. In her Australian concert tour she bragged that she's going to Hell and didn't care. Well she will when she's damned in Hell forever.
  2. Technological advancements. It is nothing less than mind-boggling what technological advances have been achieved over the past 100-years. Do you realize that 150-years ago there were no cars, no jets, no electronic communications. The basic telegraph system wasn't even invented until 1861. Before that they road the Pony Express to deliver messages. We're talking just 150-years ago. Wow! Yet today everyone is walking around with cellphones and is surfing the worldwide internet. Truly these are the Last Days. The wickedness today is unimaginable compared to Sodom and Gomorrah. People are downloading pornography to their cellphones while sitting on the buss coming home from work. Naked body scanners are being installed at all airports (and soon everywhere else too), viewing people totally butt-naked (even showing the sweat running down a person's body). How much longer can God tolerate this level of wickedness, when even the most virtuous of Christian ladies and girls are being ogled by TSA sexual deviates in a Police State nation gone insane?

    Police are zapping citizens left and right with bigger and longer-lasting body-tasers, even for the slightest of reasons. Cops are raising people's homes with a S.W.A.T. team for the smallest of complaints, shooting the family pet, and oppressing the public. Local and State police have trained to be thugs, to contend with a tired and fed up public that has been abused, over-taxed, lied to, cheated, and now molested by TSA at all the airports. American citizens have had it. This is all planned and the intent of the monsters behind the new World Order. They fully anticipate a public revolt, bringing in foreign troops to smash the resistance; and then out of chaos will arise order, i.e., NEW WORLD ORDER... a Global Godless Totalitarian Communist Police State.

    Infamous Freemason, Albert Pike predicted World Wars I, II, and III with precise detail prior to his death in 1892. We are now entering WWIII. Afghanistan was invaded and conquered by United Nation's forces in 2001. Iraq was invaded and conquered by a United Nations collation in 2002 (the UN was created by The Council On Foreign Relation, which is the visible headquarters of the New World Order). Egypt has been taken over by a coup in 2011. Libya just got bombed to smithereens in 2011. Iran has been in the spotlight for several years now, sitting directly between Iraq and Israel. Jordan must also go. We are witnessing the beginning of World War II as predicted by Albert Pike, who foretold that Arab nations would be in conflict with Israel and the rest of the world would be drawn into the conflict. This is what the Bible prophesies. Prophecy is history written in advance. If the Lord doesn't return soon, I can't even imagine how evil, intrusive, and wicked this world is going to become. Parents will become as mere incubators. The government will be as god. No one will have any privacy nor rights. Everywhere will be enslaved as cattle, microchipped with barcodes, and tracked by the Police State. It's already happening.
  3. The New World Order is here. It is important to understand why God scattered mankind across the earth in Genesis 11:7-9 at Babel. God did this as a safeguard to protect humanity against the corruption that happened in Genesis 6. The wickedness that led to the flood of Genesis 6 and 7 was happening all over again in Genesis 11, so God put an end to it, segregating man for his own good. Satan is the god of this evil world (2nd Corinthians 4:4). What Satan couldn't achieve in Genesis 11 he is accomplishing today, within God's permissible will and timetable. The New World Order is in actuality the coming to fruition of the tower and city of Babel in Genesis 11:7-9, when mankind sought to unite together in rebellion against God, worshipping the god of this sinful world, Lucifer. Most people miss that fact in Genesis 11... they were also building a city, not just a tower at Babel.

    The Pope, world leaders, celebrities, and famous people everywhere are all talking about the New World Order. The popular trend these days is to go along not only to get along, but also to become rich, famous, and have all the pleasures of this temporal sinful life. Judgment Day is coming (Hebrews 9:27). The world is becoming smaller and smaller every day. We are witnessing the formation of a one-world government, one-world religion, one-world currency, one-world economy, one-world, language (English). It's all happening before our very eyes.
  4. The immoral condition of our generation. Never before throughout history have we seen such perversion and crookedness as we see today in the world. Over 200,000,000 people have been killed because of war over the past 200-years. Over one-million Iraqis are dead, based upon false witness and tyranny bloodshed. Sodom was a wicked place, but they didn't hang out a sign advertising... SIN CITY like Las Vegas does. God hates evil (Psalm 97:10). America will get what we deserve when foreign troops march on American soil and we reap what we have sown. We are losing our homes, land, jobs, and freedoms. This is what rebellion against God does. Americans allowed Hugh Hefner to bring Playboy to our nation in 1954. We kicked God, the Bible, and prayer out of our schools in 1963. No wonder abortion was legalized in 1973. Today, homosexual-marriages have already happened by the thousands, and they have adopted children... all a pilot program to usher in a whole new kind of immoral sleaze as never before seen in the world. Can you imagine... homosexuals getting publicly and legally married?

    Who would have imagined a time when music would be sold and targeted at our youth, containing deliberate backward masking that leads kids to worship Satan!!! Katy Perry, Toby Keith, Rodney Atkins... all praise booze and drunkenness! It's sickening! It is tragic and makes any decent person want to vomit when they see two women kissing in public, or two men holding hands. This is the freakish and weird times in which we live. You haven't seen anything yet if the Lord tarries His return. The entire country is going to become massively homosexual, in our faces everywhere we turn. No Christian will be able to escape the wickedness, just as Lot's guests were being attacked by a mob of perverted homosexuals in Genesis 19:1-10.

    Who would have envisioned a time when children would be taught that they came from stardust, slime, and monkeys. Evolution has no proof whatsoever. The University of Berkeley in California even has a website that trains public school teachers how to brainwash children that evolution is true and not a religion. What a bunch of liars! Evolution is a religion!!! It is mere belief. Yet those wicked liars teach the bogus theories of evolution as if it were a fact. Isn't that evil and horrible?

These are but a few of many more reasons that I could give you why I believe the Lord will return soon. I hope it is today. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!!!

“In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God,
and that obey not THE GOSPEL of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
—2nd Thessalonians 1:8
