But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not precede them which are asleep. 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. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
Harpazo a Scientific Glance
Not too distant in the near future a supernatural event will transpire that our scientific establishments are becoming more aware of its Bible significance.
On December 11, 1997 a Colorado Springs Gazette article which headlined, “Boldly going where no photon has…” reported, “In an Austrian laboratory, scientists destroyed bits of light in one place and made perfect replicas appear about three feet away. They did that by transferring information about a crucial physical characteristic of the original light bits, called photons.
The information was picked up by other photons, which took on that characteristic and so became replicas of the originals…In addition to raising the rather fantastic notion of a new means of transportation; the trick could lead to the ultra-fast computers.
The experiment is reported in today’s issue of the journal Nature by Anton Zelinger and colleagues at the University of Innsbruck in Austria. Another research team, Based in Rome, has done similar work and submitted its report to another journal. The work is the first to demonstrate “quantum teleportation,” a bizarre shifting of physical characteristics between nature’s tiniest particles, no matter how far apart they are.
Scientists might be able to achieve teleportation between atoms within a few years and molecules within a decade or so, Zelinger said. The underlying principle is fundamentally different from the “Star Trek” process of beaming people around, but could teleportation be used on people? Could scientists extract information from every tiny particle in a person, transfer it to a bunch of particles elsewhere, and assemble those particles into an exact replica of the person? There’s no theoretical problem with that, several experts said. But get real…approximating teleportation of complex living beings, even bacteria, is so far away technologically that it’s not really worth thinking about it,” said IBM physicist Charles Bennett. He and other physicists proposed quantum teleportation in 1993.”
For many years science fiction writers have tinkered with the idea of teleportation. The Star Trek series popularized the idea with the phrase, ‘Beam me up Scotty.” Not long after a bumper stickers were seen on some Christian vehicles read, “Beam me up Jesus.”
Prophecy students have pondered the possibility that this science fiction notion might someday be used to provide a possible explanation for the Rapture to the earth’s masses. In the past it was recognized there would be serious reservations by the scientific community as to the plausibility of such a fanciful idea.
When the notion of “quantum teleportation” was presented to Albert Einstein he rejected it and referred to the concept as “spooky.” Science has now proved Albert Einstein’s rejection was premature and the spooky is taking place.
On a June 11, 2002 Colorado Springs Gazette article which headlined, “Researchers ‘teleport’ laser beam…Technique may be used someday to move matter,” reported that, “Australian scientists said Monday they successfully “teleported” a laser beam encoded with data, breaking it up and reconstructing an exact replica a yard away.
Their work replicates an experiment at the California Institute of Technology in 1998, but the Australian team thinks its technique is more reliable and consistent…At this state, the process perfected by Australian physicist Ping Koy Lam and his 12-member team only can teleport light by destroying the light beam and creating a copy at the receiving end from light particles known as photons.
“We have taken a beam of laser light…and completely destroyed it and then made measurements of the destroyed laser beam and then took the measured results to the other side of the lab and reconstructed an exact replica of what we have destroyed,” Lam said. Teleporting a laser beam involves destroying and replicating billions of photons. Lam said he thinks the process, called “quantum teleportation,” which takes a nanosecond – one billionth of one second – soon will be used for teleporting matter.
Teleporting a living person likely would be virtually impossible, scientists said. “In theory, there is nothing stopping us, but the complexity of the problem is so huge no one is thinking seriously about it at the moment,” Lam said.”
So now during the 21st century scientists have proven to their satisfaction that in theory there is nothing stopping the teleportation of human beings – the only problem is that it would take greatly advanced technology to achieve it.
One of the features of quantum teleportation – the only form of teleportation that allows the creation of a perfect copy of the original someplace else – is that the original is destroyed. Does this matter? One argument says it doesn’t because a perfect copy is as good as the original. At the atomic level, all particles are identical.
Also, the stuff in our bodies is constantly being replaced anyway. Even without teleportation, atoms and molecules are continually streaming into and out of your body, so that over time every bit of matter of which you’re made is exchanged. According to one estimate, you’re completely replaced at the cellular level about every seven years.
So teleportation wouldn’t do anything qualitatively different from what happens in the normal course of events. It just happens to replace all of your particles in one fell swoop rather than over a period of time. Another argument insists that teleportation, far from being an efficient form of travel, is equivalent to death.
A person who believes in the soul may also believe that, whereas the physical body can be teleported, the soul cannot. But even leaving the soul out of it, it’s possible to argue that becoming a perfect clone means becoming someone else.
Perhaps non-quantum forms of teleportation will be developed and applied to human beings. Then the original would not need to be destroyed, thus raising the specter of multiple nearly-identical copies of a person being created. Would each of these new individuals have the same rights as you – part ownership in all your belongings, some share in your spouse?
A non-destructive teleporter could be used as a replicator, for virtual medicine (manipulating the stored data to create a copy better than the original), travelling into the future (creating a copy many years after the information was stored), or making backup copies (creating a copy from recently stored information if the original was involved in a mishap.)
To a world soon to be overwhelmed with satanic deception, the idea that a super advanced alien race of beings is using its vast knowledge to make people disappear may well be the answer they cling to.
Not too distant in the near future the Rapture is going to actually occur. The credible lie that technologically advanced aliens are able to perpetrate such an incredible feat of quantum teleportation is now soundly placed within the realm of accepted science.
In conclusion, this mysterious event known as the Rapture is most clearly presented in Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians, in which he encourages the grieving Christians that, at the Harpazo “the great teleportation,” they will be reunited with those who have died in Christ before them.
The term harpazo simply means the catching away of those who have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, those who call themselves by His title/name, Christians. The catching away to meet the Lord in the air is our blessed hope to anyone who has accepted Christ as their savior. Jesus died for all of our sins and rose again, offering Himself as the perfect sacrifice for remission of all sins for those who accept Christ and follow His Commandments to love God and love each other to the end that we would be in God’s presence with Him for eternity.
Revelation 22:17 States: “The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come !” Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.”
