Belief in Zombies is nothing new. The first recorded mention of flesh-eating dead is in The Epic of Gilgamesh. Witch doctors and voodoo practitioners in Haiti and throughout the Caribbean have utilized zombies in pagan worship for hundreds of years. Witch doctors are said to exercise complete control over these sad creatures no longer human. More than a few Biblical passages seem to talk about Zombies. Let me share several examples:
"The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended"
"This is what the Sovereign Lordsays to these bones: I will make breathenter you, and you will come to life" (Ezekiel 37:5).
"Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt" (Daniel 12:2).
"And this shall be the plague with which the Lord will strike all the peoples that wage war against Jerusalem: their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths" (Zechariah 14:12).
Jesus declared in John 6:53-57:“Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them. Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me.
When zombie enthusiasts read these words from the lips of Jesus it's no wonder that they wonder if Jesus was a zombie. Jesus instituted the new covenant of love sealed in his flesh and blood: "And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, 'This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.' And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, 'This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me. In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying,
“This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you" (Luke 22:19-20).
As Christians we must certainly affirm that Jesus drank the cup ate the flesh and was a dead corpse who came back to life by a bodily resurrection. However, the difference between biblical truth and fanaticized zombies is the difference between reanimation and resurrection.
Much of the book of Revelation will only be understood completely when it actually happens, which is why NOW we can see it. -

I've often wondered if the intent behind that deception is to shake the faith of those who believed it when they find they are still on earth suffering through these events with the rest of the world?

How can one falling star poison a third of all the fresh water on the planet? If it was truly a star then it would cause far more devastation than poisoning the water.

Most Christians don't believe in the rapture.
The two angels escorted me to Hell. They said, “Now you will visit Hell.”…There are multitudes of churches on the Earth and many of the churches are filled with many people. However, most of them are not true Christians. They are but church attendants. The true churches will firmly believe in Heaven and a Hell. The lives of many Christians are in chaos because they do not firmly believe in Heaven and Hell. When one soul enters Heaven, one thousand cursed souls enter Hell. The rate of Heaven and Hell is 1 to 1000.” (Matt 7:14)
Heaven & Hell 1000 to 1
Bishop Wilfred Lai is the founder and senior Pastor of Jesus Celebration Center in Mombasa, Kenya and it is a church of over 15,000 members. One day he asked the Lord how many of them were ready for heaven and the Lord told him only 200. Only 1% of that church is going to heaven!
Dr. Lai said that some pastors have created large groups of sinners meeting in the name of God. “What you have are not churches, but large congregations of sinners.”
Message from Pastor Wilfred Lai
And in the end, most people will unfortunately receive the Mark of the beast #666. Many Christians will get it because they were never warned by their Church. (Revelations 13:15-18) This is why The Lord is saying that less than 1% of Pastors and less the 10% of Christians will hear the trumpet sound.
In early 2009, I truthfully received the following message from God:
"The Alien/UFO phenomenon will be used to explain the Rapture to non-believers."
In early 2009, I received the rapture message from God, “The alien/Ufo phenomenon will be used to explain the rapture to non-believers.” Approximately a month or so after receiving the rapture message, my wife and I were followed by a diamond-shaped ufo for almost four hours (as described in the Lying Star article/sketches at bottom of blog). This UFO was not some “alien” spacecraft as these evil spirits would have liked us to believe – it was in fact a demonic manifestation. A very real manifestation that I’m sure other drivers on the road could see as well. Speaking of ‘real’, it has shocked me from the very beginning how real all of this truly is. There is a real war going on behind the scenes for souls. aliensrevealed.blogspot.com...
"I received the message from God concerning the rapture being explained-away by the satanic "alien/UFO" lie. I've read the work of various "Biblical Scholars" who never so much as mention this "alien/UFO" deception. Furthermore, I remain convinced that one cannot have a clear understanding of what the people will be going through during the 7 year Tribulation period without this knowledge. In my opinion, Satan will keep this lie going throughout the Tribulation period- going so far as to lead the world's armies to armageddon under a possible false premise of Intergalactic Warfare (Rev. 16:13-16). This may sound silly during the time of this writing, but during the Tribulation period-this lie will lead many away from the truth of Jesus Christ. All my praise to Jesus!"
King James Version (KJV)
15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
"Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted" (Galatians 6:1)

Didn't that Gifford lady take a shot to the face and remarkably went back to work? Hmmm....
Not that i believe in this stuff, but if it went down that way. I would certainly just stand around in befuddlement for the rest of my time.
I think a better recourse would be to band together and fight jesus as a team. We would have better odds that way. Anyone with nards has a significant weakness that could be easily used against them. Uh uunng. No hellfire for me. I 'll go down fighting.

The rapture will be visible to everyone, so the government really won't be able to cover it up or lie about it. People will still be able to get saved after the rapture, with the exception of those who take the mark of the Beast.
