Below is a prophetic scenario was written by Dave White. Dave is Pre Trib like myself. Dave White is a good friend of the ministry and wrote this back during the Carter administration as a guidebook for events following a pre-tribulation rapture event. Our first installment is his introduction. The coming deception that is to come upon the whole world. This is straight from Dave’s heart. God bless you.
We will post one chapter in its own heading. After the Vanishing.
Behold, I have told you in advance…
I declared them to you long ago…
I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning…

A Final Warning
The age of materialism is officially over. If there were any such illusions before this incredible vanishing event, they have been summarily obliterated. There will be many attempts to explain what has happened from every political, religious and sociological perspective, but none materialist. There is now evidence of another dimension to human existence, a dimension long denied and rejected as simplistic by the more “enlightened” of the 19th and 20th centuries. The foundations of modern science, especially the fundamentalist religious philosophy of Darwinism, in one incredible, solitary moment, have dissolved before our very eyes.
One may wish to ask our educators of the past 75-100 years what we shall do with the countless lies and untruths they have filled our children’s minds with? After blindly following and believing the educational and political establishment for so long, how do we now suspend, reassess and reformulate our worldview into a coherent and rational philosophy? What on earth shall we believe?
In one form or another, the new worldview will be spiritual, non-rational and supernatural in nature. Yes, scientific materialism and its many proponents have left the philosophical stage.
You will not have the convenience of disbelief in a hereafter to fall back on anymore. The choices have been limited for you; does the God of the bible have a plan that He set in motion from the beginning of time, who through specific bible prophecy warned us in advance? Or is there a more esoteric explanation; have we taken a “quantum leap” in our evolutionary progress toward inevitable “godhood”? The battle lines have been drawn. In the coming months, you will choose one or the other explanations. Is there one true God, worthy of all honor, glory, and praise? Or have our missing brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, gone on to a higher level of consciousness, (Christ consciousness?) having reached their human potential?
It is our view that God has a plan. Beginning with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob He began revealing Himself to mankind; as a God of love, mercy, kindness, compassion etc. God, being a spirit needed a vehicle to bridge the gap between man and Himself. Specifically, He chose the holy bible and the ancient Jewish people to reveal Himself, ie., His attributes, and his plan. How simple, but still profound.
It would seem:
God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise.
In the following pages we hope to show:
That God is in control of human history.
That we are here for His good pleasure.
That man has made a license with his liberty and has gone astray.
That God sent His only begotten son Jesus, to show us the way out of our darkness.
That the mysterious disappearance of millions of people from the face of the earth was the return of Jesus Christ for His church, The Rapture.
That He promised to come yet again, and will, in all power and glory 7 years from the moment of the disappearance.
That there is a real Satan behind the political kingdoms of this world.
That Satan knows his time is limited and his time is short.
Most of all we will show that God did not leave us in the dark about His plans. Through a series of astounding biblical prophecies, history was set before us. Beginning with the re-birth of Israel in 1948, and moving inexorably to the year 2000 His plan was manifesting itself on the world stage. So confident were we in His holy word and His revelation, we began this work before the great vanishing, knowing the event was imminent. This work is for you, those who have been left behind. We hope you consider this a gift from the Lord, a final warning of the perilous times and incredible deception that lie ahead. It’s not too late. It’s never too late if you soften your heart. But the time is short.
Satan has one final opportunity to deceive you. He knows most will never overtly worship him as God, so he’ll try to get you to worship yourself, with old Lucifer as your guide. Amazingly, his methods haven’t changed. This story of Satanic deception all began in the Book of Genesis, the first book in the Bible, chapter 3.
We’ve all heard the familiar story of Adam and Eve and how the serpent, Satan, deceived Eve into taking a bite from the apple. What we are less familiar with is the temptation used by Satan to entice her:
The women said to the serpent, “from the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat;
but from the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, God has said ‘you shall not eat from it, or touch it, or you shall surely die’”
The serpent said to the women, “you surely will not die!
“For God knows that in the day that you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
And so, Satan will once again proclaim, “you don’t have to die, you can obtain the knowledge necessary for Godhood, follow me. I will be your guide. I will help you reach your “human potential”. Don’t be deceived. There is only one God.
I am the beginning and the end, says the Lord, who is, and who was, and who is to come, The Almighty. (Revelation 1:8)
In retrospect, maybe only an event such as the rapture (or something just as transforming) could have shaken the stifling post-modern reliance on a purely scientific, materialist worldview.
Such was the power of the elite in society to control and manipulate mass opinion. So entrenched were these powers over opinion, a case could be made that in order for man to maintain his freedom, God had to intervene in some way. Listen to one power elite describe this future:
Power will gravitate into the hands who control information.
“This will encourage tendencies through the next several decades toward a TECHNOTRONIC ERA, A DICTATORSHIP, leaving even less room for political procedures as we know them. Finally, looking ahead to the end of the century, the possibility of BIOCHEMICAL MIND CONTROL AND GENETIC TINKERING WITH MAN, INCLUDING BEINGS WHICH WILL FUNCTION LIKE MEN AND REASON LIKE THEM AS WELL”

Freedom to choose is the one inalienable right God would never take away, or allow to be taken away from His creation. The inviolability of man’s right to freely choose between good and evil, right and wrong, is sacred. The value and dignity of man is enveloped in the freedom God gave to His creation. No one can breach that divide. Maybe, in ways we may never fully understand this side of heaven, the rapture-God’s intervention in the affairs of men, was necessary.
It is our view that God is a personal God, who takes an active role in the affairs of man. There is no partiality with God, each individual is created in His image, with inherent dignity and incalculable value. Being active and involved with His creation leads us to the question of how God intervenes in our lives, both individually and collectively. If you are to grasp the concept and reality of biblical prophecy, for instance, you will need to discern the corresponding dichotomy between the spiritual and the natural world. In essence, there are two distinct worlds existing within one reality. In the Book of Luke Jesus implicitly confirms the connection between these two worlds:
The Apostles said to the Lord, “increase our faith!” And the Lord said, ”if you had the faith of a mustard seed, you would say to this mulberry tree, be uprooted and be planted in the sea, and it would obey you.”
And again in Matthew, Jesus said to His disciples,
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven. (Matthew 16:19)
This is an invitation to commune with the transcendent, self-existent almighty God. Wow! Why would He want to do this?
The God of all is asking us to participate with Him in His creation, His History, His plan. Somehow, our free will can coexist with His predestination! Don’t ask how that can happen, but we’ll show you that it must.
James tells us to,
Ask in faith, without doubting,…the effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. (James 1:6, 5:16)
Dr. Charles Stanley elaborated succinctly on the full meaning of the word accomplish in James 5:16. In the original Greek, the word for accomplish is energaio, which translated, means “divine energy.” Here we see His intervention. The effective prayer, the prayer in faith, the prayer that originates in the mind of God, but, through communion with Him is imparted to the believer, that is the prayer that releases God’s energy into the natural world and individual lives. And why should it be any other way? It was His prayer, His idea; we are simply participants in His glory, or as Peter said, partakers of the divine;
He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature.
(2 Peter 1:4)
The holy bible is replete with the promises of God, showing Him to be a loving, kind, merciful and active Deity, concerned about His creation. In John 15 He is likened to a gardener, cultivating and pruning His creation.
In John 10:11 He is portrayed as the good shepherd, guiding His sheep to greener pastures. He is not a genie in a bottle, required to respond to every whim of a spiritually bereft and self-centered creation. But, he will:
.,.cause all things to work together for the good, to those who love God and are called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)
According to the Bible, God is personal, active and intervening in every aspect of our lives, both large and small. There is no partiality with Him; He has a plan for each individual and, as we will see, every nation tongue and tribe.
With respect to Bible prophecy, God reveals Himself to be in control of history, synthesizing the spiritual and natural worlds with the force and awesome power of His will, reinforcing the reality that God is in control, nothing has escaped His notice. He is somehow above all, yet in all the great I Am.
As you study these ancient prophecies you’re going to see history come alive, and like us you’ll be left bowing your head in humble adoration, for:
OUR GOD IS AN AWESOME GOD,
HE REIGNS FROM HEAVEN ABOVE
WITH WISDOM, POWER, AND LOVE….
HE IS… AN AWESOME GOD 1
…you must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at a time when you least expect Him.
Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day or the hour.
Matthew 24:44, 25:13
