We know what the Rapure of the Church is, most likely people on ATS should have heard of it at least.
My theory is that maybe when the New World Order comes about and dark powers are at work, just to make things complicted an Anti-Rapture occures, and
in this Anti-Rapture instead of Christians getting in the non- Christians and eventual enemies get access to a world or realm that is not heavenly or
even if it is it becomes ransacked. Eventually God has to make a new heavens and earth.
To decieve the people they will be the first to see this other realms and they will be convinced of it and will listen to who ever is in charge to
make war with the Saints and believers of Christ who will be waiting patiently.
It could also be an openning in the Rapture where the Christians go into the real heavens and the door is opens other realms up on earth, maye that is
why the Angels by the River Euphrates, Babylon/Iraq wait for an appointed time to bring judgement on earth.
We know the Devil still has access to Heaven, he makes disputes there and curses God.
Somewhere along the line God gets angry at the Heavenly realms.
In that day the LORD will punish the powers in the heavens above and the kings on the earth below.
[ New Heavens and a New Earth ] “See, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to
Even if Babylon ascends to the heavens and fortifies her lofty stronghold, I will send destroyers against her,” declares the LORD.
( Is it a spiritual realm from Earth that has reached heaven, Babylon it is known as...)
Before them the earth shakes, the heavens tremble, the sun and moon are darkened, and the stars no longer shine.
New International Version (NIV)
9 But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses, did not himself dare to condemn him for slander but
said, “The Lord rebuke you!”
5 The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. 6 It opened its mouth to
blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. 7 It was given power to wage war against God’s holy
people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation.
[ The Heavenly Warrior Defeats the Beast ] I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True.
With justice he judges and wages war.
Revelation 19:10-12 (in Context) Revelation 19 (Whole Chapter)
Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage war against the rider on the horse and his army.
