The Silent Apocalypse Part 3
When the Tribulation Period of the Great Consummation “actually begins” you will notice non-Christian friends and family becoming much more hostile to you and those in your faith; and guess what, it will be for seemingly insignificant reasons.
Christian organizations will be censured and or completely shut down by governments.
Christian ministries will be subjected to strict and new government regulations with guidelines forcing most Christian ministries into silence and thus closure; supposedly, because Christian ministries are not formulaically inclusive socially, religiously or morally. Christians are already seeing such behavior as nations like Canada and Europe and of course the Middle-East forge laws and changes in laws hostile to Christianity. Believe it or not, the United States of America, the land of the free is already considers Christians a threat! (Joel 1:1-20)
So you may ask… what is going to happen
during the Christian-Apocalypse?
For starters… nothing is going to happen overtly; leastwise, not until the Bio-implants and wet-ware styled Micro-Chips become mandatory for financial use. When the implants become mandatory it will likely be established abruptly after some vast near-global financial shift has taken place; however, there is that small chance the world will simply slide peacefully into the “Mark” by popular demand. He who will be the Beast will be much loved by most and will likely be suggesting this global/national change in technology.
Many Christians, but not all, will refuse the new technology outright.
World Governments will not balk at the religious rejection to their new Financial-Tech because governments will be expecting such religious outrage and refusals.
Oddly enough, ministries and Pastor and Priests the world over will support the financial change – declaring – the new technology “Not To Be” the Mark of the Beast. Why, you may ask? Simply put, according to many – Christian – End-Times teachings the Mark of the Beast will not take place during the Great Tribulation because, falsely taught, the Great Tribulation is the Wrath of God!
My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge because they have rejected knowledge. (Hosea 4:6 NKJV)
Here, today’s story changes. Before the 2019 Covid virus struck the world, most peoples in most nations Would Not have been very pliable; however today,
- after a year of everyone – everywhere wearing masks “or else”
- and a hostile general public despising anyone who will not…
- followed by several questionable Vaccines loaded with an experimental mRNA,
- and nations demanding citizens become vaccinated
- all this shadowed by whatever is coming next in the creation of compliant citizenry
- Your non-Christian and lukewarm Christian “Compliant” neighbors will gladly receive a piece of new technology when the people say they MUST.
Now, add the false signs and wonders taking place as the Beginning of Sorrows and the Great Consummation kick off (see the book, This Side of the Whirlwind).
Also remember, 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 which states, “…and for this reason, God shall send them a strong delusion so that they might believe a lie, that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
Here are a few of the false signs many Christians have been taught will precede the Great Tribulation. By the way… as intimated earlier, many Christians have been mistakenly taught the Great Tribulation is God’s Wrath; this is incorrect!
The Great Tribulation is not the Wrath of God; rather, the Great Tribulation must take place during the first 2½ years of the Great Consummation. The Great Consummation spans 3½ years: see timeline.
The Great Tribulation or Tribulation Period is merely a time designated by God to separate the Wheat from the Tares or True-Christians from the Pseudo-Christians also referred to as the Lukewarm in Revelation 3:16.
- False Sign) A One-World Government will form or be nearly formed and ruled over by the Beast. Too often the Beast is mistakenly called the Anti-Christ (1st John 4:3; 2nd John 1:7).
- The Beast/Anti-Christ will rule over the ten nations; however, at first, he may or may not rule openly until the Great Consummation begins.
- Whether people recognize it or not we already have a form of – one-world government – via the global financial network or system. One example of this one-world government pseudo-system can be seen in the EMV Payment System (EuroPay, MasterCard, Visa Payment System) which has reached the majority of the globe thru international banking.
- The Debit/Credit cards systems as well as other related financial systems and organizations are already in place and fully functional.
- Add to the EMV Payment System – the global network of Corporations and their financial and commercial connectivity (Examples: Intranet/Internet) and it is easy to see multilevel worldwide influences which could easily be manipulated by the Beast via HIS One-World connections.
- Interesting note: The person who will become the Beast must already be alive and kicking today. Bear in mind, Revelation 17:11 indicates the Beast will first be a natural person who will be killed neither in anger nor in battle and will then have their body taken over by demonic forces to become the Beast. The process takes place once the individual dies and their spirit leaves the body; (Revelation 13:1) once the human spirit has evacuated the body the essence of a demonic spirit will take over and become the Beast:
And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into perdition/destruction. (Revelation 17:11 NKJV)
- Another False Sign: All born again Christians will be Raptured before the Tribulation Period begins (Jesus’ Second Coming).
- Here is another doctrine Christians have been erroneously taught:
the Body of Christ will be Raptured before the Great Tribulation begins – BECAUSE – the Great Tribulation is supposed to be the Wrath of God.
- Here is another doctrine Christians have been erroneously taught:
- For a detailed truth (see chapter 14 of “This Side of the Whirlwind, The Coming Apocalypse”)
- The Tribulation Period is not God’s Wrath; rather, it is a time of difficulty designed to separate True-Christians from Pseudo-Christians in fulfillment of the Wheat from the Tares parable/prophecy (Matthew 13:24-30).

- The Pre, Mid and Post-Tribulation doctrines as well as the Preteristic and A-Millennial viewpoints were upended and shown as false doctrines once God released the “Time of the End” revelations as found in the book, “This Side of the Whirlwind, The Coming Apocalypse”.
- Even as Jesus’ 3½ years of ministry brought the Blessing half of the covenant so the 3½ years of Judgment portion of the covenant brings the “Year of Vengeance of our God (Isaiah 61:1-2).
- The Christian world NOW has that information which the Prophets Daniel and John were instructed to conceal – Until… “The Time of the End”. The Time of the End is also known as the Latter Days (Daniel 8:11-26; Daniel 12:4-11; Revelation 10:1-11). The complete revelation for the End of Days is now available to the Body of Christ worldwide via the book, “This Side of the Whirlwind, The Coming Apocalypse.”
We are sure the Lord has given others this new revelation… simply put, we have not seen it in the hands of other, YET.
- Yet Another False Sign) The world will go into some global financial crisis which will prompt the Mark of the Beast.
- Though this is a possibility… it is more likely world governments in alliance with global financial institutions will opt for the implantable microchips or Bio-implants that are already becoming popular.
- The transition will likely take place after economies convert from Cash-Based monetary systems into Cashless forms of money; which is desirable due to the cost nations incur printing and minting currencies.
- Though a Cashless society does not necessitate zero coin or paper money for trade, the currency of governments will become “The Mark”.
- Here are a couple related Posts:
- More False Signs) The Beast/Anti-Christ will be presented as a world leader after the Resurrection and Rapture of the Saints.
- The Beast will lead the Kingdom of the North through wars and desolations against Christians however he may do so without presenting as a President or Sheik or leader of a nation/country.
- The Beast could begin as a beloved Icon of world peace and stability.
- For a greater understanding on the Beast/Anti-Christ check out, “This Side of the Whirlwind, The Coming Apocalypse” subsection: The Beast and False Prophet, chapter 13; pages 209-212.
Now, “The Mark Comes” alludes to those who are trying to avoid the Mark of the Beast. What about those who think they can just wait it out if they dig in at home?
In the next installment we’ll look at an excerpt from,
“This Side of the Whirlwind, The Coming Apocalypse”
Chapter 13, pages 228-231.
