    I originally posted this message about 3 weeks after the terrorist attacks on Hal Lindseys old forum. Many people often wonder and ask why is America not mentioned in the bible in the last days. I believe the Lord showed me what is going to happen to America in the very near future. This post will be in 3 or 4 parts in order to follow the rules of not making any long posts. PLEASE DON'T REPLY UNTIL IT IS FINISHED.

    "WHERE IS AMERICA IN THE LAST DAYS ?"

    I'm a Correctional Officer that happens to work the mid-night shift. Usually I start drinking coffee and watch the news before I get ready to go to work. I've been a Christian for about 11 years now, and following prophecy for about 10 of those years. I am in no way, shape or form, claiming to an expert on this subject. I'm just a foot soldier in the Lords Army.

    Anyway, on the night of Sept. 19, I was drinking my coffee and watching the news, when all of a sudden they reported that President Bush was asking ALL nations to declare which side they were going to choose, ours or the terrorists. I thought WOW- this is BIG. This has never happened before, never in the history of man kind. I thought "This is so big that it has to be in the bible somewhere, and when I get to work and finish all my paperwork, I'm gonna search the scriptures.

    So after I got my paperwork finished, it was time to dig in to the scriptures. I wanted to start my scripture search in the future somewhere, and then work my way back from there. Well - this was my plan anyway. I knew Ezekiel 38 was still somewhere in the future. I also knew that it told of the future invasion of Israel by Russia and a few Arab nations. I always thought this invasion would be early in the tribulation, and I didn't expect to be around to see it, because I believe the rapture will happen before the tribulation. So - I was just about to turn the page back, when I heard this still small voice in my head say " Take another look". I thought - Another look at what? Then the small voice said "Look at those other countries". WOW! God had just turned the light on in my head . The blinders were removed and now my spiritual eyes were open......End of Part One

    I always knew those other countries were Muslim countries, but my spiritual eyes saw something else. These are not just Muslim countries, Folks- these are Terrorist states-Woe! I knew it in my spirit, and my next project would be identifying just exactly who they are. We are just starting to deal with these terrorists, and we are also just starting to hear RUMORS of WARS.

    Anyway, after reading Ezekiel 38 & 39, I asked the Lord "Where is America Lord?". But there was no answer. Then I told the Lord that America has always defended Israel. Then I asked Him again, "Lord - Where is America in Israels time of need? Then I heard that still small voice again, "Behold-I tell you a mystery". That's all He said, but to me, that small phrase said a mouthful! This is it, 1 Cor. 15:51. Folks this is it, the long awaited rapture of the Church! In case you are wondering, - No I don't know the date, nor am I one of those date setters. I believe it is sinful to even try to set a date, because Jesus said "No man knows, not the Son, but only the Father". Church- get ready to be snatched out of here unexpectedly. Our warning signs are here now. It could be any day- even today!

    Folks- I believe the Lord is showing me that the rapture will take place BEFORE this war on terrorism is over ! Pres. Bush said that this war could possibly last 10 years, but he isn't God. Only God knows when these things will happen. But I can only imagine how stunned the world will be on that day - when He calls us home. The war against terrorism will be over immediately. Who will lead this war then, if America is unable? I believe America is on her final mission before the rapture occurs, and that we will never complete this mission....End of Part Two

    I hate to say this people but, remember the pictures of the Twin Towers falling? This is also similar to the picture of America AFTER the rapture. I always knew that after the rapture, cars would be crashing, planes crashing, and houses burning- but the Lord showed me something else, something different that I've never heard anyone else talk about, not even Hal Lindsey.

    This rapture is going to be more devistating than we even like to imagine. Here it is - the kicker. The real damage to the U.S. after the rapture will be an Economic Crash, and it will be caused by the rapture itself. Everyone was worried about the Stock Market after 9-11, but that was nothing compared to the Tidal Wave that is going to smash our economy after the rapture.

    Now- lets take a look at the nuts and bolts of this monster. When the Lord takes me home, for instance, I'll be leaving behind all my bills too. Good bye and good riddens. None of my bills will be paid the month following the rapture, or after. No car payment, no electric, no water, no mortgage, no nothing - finished. To prove my point, I will use my mortgage as an example later.

    Now - lets do the math. There are over 280 million people in the U.S.A., and 69% of these have a mortgage. I've heard on some polls taken, that over half of the U. S. citizens claim to be Christians. Oh is that right, over half? I don't think so. If you drove through your neighborhood on Sunday morning, you won't see anywhere near this number of people in church. This number has got to be WAY off. I'm not saying you have to go to church every Sunday to be a christian, but most do go anyway. And not everyone that does go to church is a true believer. Matt. 7:14 says "But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it". I could be wrong, but I would guess that no more than 20% will be ready for the rapture, and if I am wrong, it will only prove my point all the more..End of Part Three.

    I'll be leaving behind a mortgage of $70,000.00 when I leave. Now, lets be conservative and say that 10 million people get raptured. This number is less than 4%, not the 20% previously mentioned. And lets say that the average debt owed is about $50,000.00. Of course some won't owe that much, but some will owe much more, after all, it's the American way! Now we are ready to figure this out, and remember, your dollar right now is only worth about .50 cents.

    $50,000.00 X 10,000,000 = $500,000,000,000.00 !!! WOE !!!
    Look at that figure. That is NOT $500 Million dollars - Folks, this is $500 Billion dollars, and this is if only 4% are taken. If 8% are taken, then this figure will double. DOUBLE WOE!! And this is just some of the damage, there will be much more.
    It is very possible that the Lord will take 50, 60, or even 70 million home, and that number is growing even now. No man knows that number, just as no man knows the day or the hour of His coming. Oh my !! People- The U.S.A. that we all know and love will be sunk into the depths of poverty. That's right - a third world country overnight.

    If you get left behind, don't even try to run down to the store to get whatever may be left. They won't want your worthless money. They will probably tell you to leave and lock their doors. They will want to keep what they have so they can trade with others to get what they need. Then will come the looting, fights, brothers against brothers, and murders. America will never be the same ever again.

    America will be the hardest hit at first, because we have most of the christians in the world living here. I'm not saying they all live here, not even close. I'm just saying that we have more than all other countries do. This won't hurt every nation at first, some won't even know anything happened at all. But very soon, every nation will know that something sure must have happened, because the U.S. economy will crash so hard, that it will cause a ripple effect across the entire world. The New World Order Globalists own the Federal Reserve and they control our money and other nations as well. They have tied all the worlds Stock Markets together too.
    End of Part four - hang on I'm almost finished.

    When America s economy crashes, soon all economies will crash all over the world, and all the Stock Markets will crash, and every Bank too- even the World Bank that is owned by the Globalists. The worlds rich people will have a wake-up call. They might have a lot of money, but it will be worthless. Many people will probably starve to death. Rev. 6:6 says "Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the Four living creatures, saying, "A quart of wheat for a days wages, and three quarts of barley for a days wages, and do not damage the oil and wine." The citizens of the world will hate this way of living so much that they will probably beg for the Mark of the Beast, and they will believe the lie.
    Rev. 13:16,17 says "He also forced everyone,small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark in his right hand or in his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell, unless he had the mark."

    Ezekiel 38 will happen right after the rapture. With America out of the picture, Russia along with the terrorist nations will attack Israel. Before the rapture God gave His attention to the Church, but after the rapture, He will again have His attention on Israel. Russia and her allies will show their foolishness and meet their doom. They are no match for God Almighty, and Ezekiel 39 shows who protected Israel. It sure wasn't the U.S.A. I also believe that Israel, out of a desparate last resort will use her Nukes in this invasion.

    With the U.S.A., Russia, and all the Terrorist states out of the way, this will pave the way for the Anti-Christ of the new Roman Empire (EU) to come riding into the Israel on a white horse preaching peace. I wouldn't start thinking that the EU is not strong enough yet to take over. How strong do they have to be to start talking peace? And don't forget, the Super Powers will already be gone. Folks - Do we really know what time it is? On our spiritual clocks I mean? Jesus said "When you see these things begin to happen- look up, your redemption draws near. The End.

    That's one way of looking at it. What if about a dozen terrorist fly or drive bombs into nuclear power plants around this nation? I think that might do the same thing. Your way sounds better.

    I was beginning to think that you all were scared to touch this one, or something. When I posted it the first time on Hal Lindseys Forum, it took off like a rocket. There were a lot of knowledgible believers over there, and I miss that, but I believe the Lord wants me here right now, for some reason that I don't know. I don't even really like computers that much, but I must admit that I am learning to like them. I type with only one finger. You can imagine how long it took me to post this topic. So much for that day off. LOL.

    After the Lord showed me what was going to happen, I asked my wife "Why would the Lord tell me this stuff, I'm in no position to spread this message?" Why didn't He tell Hal Lindsey, or Jack Van Impe, or some other expert? I really didn't know, it was beyond me. But, I knew He wanted me to spread this, because when I told this to the first person, I could feel the Spirit come over me, stronger than ever before. Then God introduced me to computers about a week later. He really does work in mysterious ways...........>>>>>>>rollinTHUNDER

    rollinThunder,
    I loved everything that you said!! As I was reading your post, I could tell that it was the Spirit helping you and not just from you. It is so true that the time is short!! Just look all around you and see the different things that are actually taking place right before our eyes! So thankful that you are here with this forum. So sad that Hal Lindsey's site is no longer. I learned so much reading all of the posts on that site. The rapture will be soon! :) Hallelujah, Praise The Lord! :)

    Hello Phyllis,
    Thank you very much. I bet you are one of the Lords encouragers. Sometimes I will come across someone on the net and I can just tell that they have a sweet spirit. It is rare, and I get that same sense about you. If I was depressed or having a bad day, your refreshing words would have picked me right up.
    But I didn't do this for a pat on the back. I'm working for my Master. I will never be able to repay Him, so I'm doing it out of love, and just hoping that He gets the glory. This isn't my message anyway, it's what He gave to me. I'm just a messenger and I hope I don't mess it up. It's nice to run across people like you, when I'm working for Him. It seems to make work more pleasurable and worth the effort..>>>>>>>rollinTHUNDER

    rollingTHUNDER, first of all, I hope your day gets better. I'll pray for you.
    Second, your message about America it's very interesting. I'm glad God is using you to inform other Christians. I don't think you have to be Hal Lindsey, or JV Impe for God to use you. You're also a man of God.
    I think the reason why you haven't had as many replies as you did on Hal Lindsey's forum is because most of the people who use to belong to that forum were very much into prophecy more than they are here...Just my opinion.
    I used to love to read all the posts in Hal Lindey's forum until they did away with it.:(
    I did not post anything there because I felt that everybody elso knew so much more than me and I really just went in there to learn.
    Anyway, may God keep using you!
    Regards,
    Z

    Hello Z,
    Thankyou and welcome to the forum.
    I was talking about why would God show me, the foot soldier. I didn't see the purpose at first, but I can see it now.

    I'm trying to snatch all the souls from the fire that I can, before it's too late, but that's not all. There is also a purpose that I would never have thought of. Not that it wasn't there all along, but that I just didn't see it before. I was already witnessing and spreading His message before He revealed this truth to me, but it was on a smaller scale. Now, with the addition of using the computer, the scale has multiplied probably a thousand times or maybe even more. But the part that I didn't ever realize is, some of these seeds I'm planting will become late bloomers. That is - I also beleave that I am preparing tribulation saints. I realize that
    some will think this scenario sounds crazy. But after it happens, they'll say that crazy nut was right after all, then they'll know not to take the Mark of the Beast. It's true that God is going to send a strong delussion, that they will believe the lie, but these who have heard the truth but didn't believe at first, will finally see the light, and they will pay a mighty high price for being late. They will have to pay with their own blood..>>>>>>>rollinTHUNDER

    That REALLY brings Rev. 6:6 into a whole new light. I've never thought about the implications of a mass "exodus" from this earth but WOW!

    It seems we are starting to see the picture in the puzzle...

    (Sheesh this gets me excited! I'm still awaiting the sobering effect...)

    Hello again KenOGar24,
    I'm with you on that brother. We couldn't live in more exciting times, than the days we are living in right now. It would have been great to walk with Jesus 2000 years ago, but these days are the next best thing. Things of prophecy are happening so fast now that I have a hard time keeping up with all of it. God is still in the process of bringing his scattered Jews back home, to Israel. The wars and rumors of war. All the earth quakes are increasing in size and frequency. The technology for the Mark of the Beast is here now, available and just waiting for the opportunity. The nations of Ezekiel 38 are already lining up. The Revived Roman Empire is rising to power. China has it's 200,000,000 man Army ready to march. Famines have been going around for some time now, so what more could we ask for?

    We are NOT waiting for more signs are we? All the signs are here now. So what are we waiting for? The answer to that is very simple. We are waiting for the Bridegroom to come and take us away. Maybe a better question would be, what is He waiting for? That is not so easy, but, I'll try to take a stab at it. I believe that He is waiting for that last sheep to come home. That, my brothers and sisters in Him, is our job.......>>>>>>>rollinTHUNDER

    rollinThunder, I've no idea who Hal Lindsey or the others are that you've mentioned...sigh.
    I've been a christian for 27 years but am new to figuring out this computer thing.
    I came upon this site completely by accident... well, maybe by divine appointment more likely... the Lord just works that way doesn't he? I've been studying my sciptures trying to understand Ezekial, Daniel...Isaiah... Revelations .. trying to piece this all together with recent events... I wanted to thank you for posting this information. It's an eye opener for sure!
    As to why would God use you? well, I believe you don't need any special qualifications for God to use you-just the willingness to trust and obey Him. To love Him. To be a mouthpiece for Him if and when He chooses to use you. I have women in my study group who have been searching for this information... which, I feel in my spirit to be accurate. Thank You for posting... I look forward to reading your other posts! :) God Bless!

    Welcome to the site, Kathleen! I also happened upon this site by "accident" one night...I had been praying for the Lord to open my eyes to the scripture...I have read a lot, but am not always able to comprehend what I'm reading or relate it to life...then here come the website and the answers to all the questions I've been asking! How awesome is God?!?! I've gotten deeper into my Bible the last 2 weeks than I have in the last 2 years! And I'm learning so much!

    Anyway, on to Rolling Thunder's message...
    This is excellent stuff, RT! I also was overcome by the Spirit when I read these things...I believe this truly is a message from God, and how exciting. I got so excited I started jumping up and down in my chair (the poor thing can't take too much...LOL)! I am living for the day when Jesus comes to take us home! It will be so wonderful! We must all pray for the unsaved, this has been a true burden on my heart recently. There is not much time left to give your heart to Jesus! Praise God for the wonderful things He is going to do, and for the wonders of His love!

    RT, you may not feel special, hey, neither do I, but God calls each of us according to His purpose! You remember Isaiah 6:8???

    "Also I have heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send and who will go for us?" Then I said, "Here am I! Send me."

    That's all we have to do, is make ourselves available and willing to the Lord, and He will use us in great ways!

    Everyone pray for BOLDNESS in WITNESSING to the unsaved! Pray for a soul harvest, for new Christians around the world!

    Hello Kathleen7,
    And welcome to the Forum. I can't believe that someone could live in California and never heard of Hal Lindsey. He lives right in your state. He is probably the leader in the field of prophecy. He is the author of several great books. I went to a get together about 10 years ago, for my bible study class. I was a new Christian then, and they started talking about Jesus would be coming back to snatch His Church out of the world before the tribulation. I was like - What? All I knew was, I had to go get that book. It's called "THE LATE GREAT PLANET EARTH". It's a must read, and hurry before it's too late.
