Apocalypse Survival Guide? Read Your Bible!


Well, it seems that the whole nation is talking about the “Zombie Apocalypse,” after the bizarre incidents, taking place in the recent weeks.

But this is just escalating. It isn’t new. However, it is in my son’s world. And talking with him and his friend the other day, was hilarious. But also, quite sobering. It gave me, a teachable moment.

I had taken my son and my brother to see, The Chernobyl Diaries, a few nights before. And sorry folks, but we were laughing throughout the whole movie. My son, the hardcore, believer, even said, “That sucked. The ending was terrible!”

He is a conspiracy theorist if I ever saw one. And he was totally convinced that the Russian’s have these mutant zombies locked up, and just refuse to let us know. Hey, anything’s possible. But after he saw the movie, he was totally bummed out.

He loves a good espionage and mystery, or horror film but this was so bad, that the theater erupted in loud hoots of laughter. I’m thinking back to the time my son was telling an older lady at my brother’s bowling group, that he had smashed one of my smoke detectors, because he believed it was ‘bugged.’ The only reason I took it down, was because I had another, placed too closely to this one anyway. She very nonchalantly, asked him, “do you think you should have been doing that?” And he answered her, “Yea, the government has no business putting bugs in our smoke detectors!” I couldn’t stop laughing, as they spoke. Neither one of them seemed as if this was odd. I guess we are all desensitized by our own lack of privacy. So it seemed to be a normal conversation.

I guess I watched Enemy of the State, one too many times with him. But he is pretty astute, I will give him that. He notices things which the average person does not, and I would say his level of observance would make him a good candidate for any spy agency.

However, the conversation him and his friend were having was the means to survive the coming Zombie Apocalypse. I began to ask them the details, of such an event. His friend said, “I’m going on top of Wal-Mart. “I’m going on top of Bass Outdoor World,” my son said. “Why are you guys going on top of the buildings?” I asked. “Well, everyone knows that zombies, can’t climb!” His friend says. “Oh, I said, showing my ‘zombie-ignorance.’

Now my son begins to ask me, “What would you use against the zombies, mom?” Hmm, well, I don’t want to get up close and personal, so I’m thinking a compound bow. That sounds cool.” “Yea,” he says. “With flaming arrows, cause fire kills them.”

Well, clearly, there’s a lot I need to learn about these zombies. Then his friend tells me that his stepdad, also has been studying zombies for quite a while. I’m wondering why. But hey, if they come knockin, at least I have a neighbor, I can go to for advice. That is, from my rooftop.

Now my son is upset, because my daughter told him all the people online are saying they’re getting a spot on Bass Outdoor World. “Oh man, now I have to find some other place,” he says. Yea, it’s gonna get crowded, I told him.

So, I realized that while speaking to my friend the other day, he too said, “Oh, I have a zombie survival kit.” “What?” I was surprised. But, his mother said, “Please. I’m losing my religion, hearing all this.” I said, “Why? It’s no different from the demoniac that Jesus came upon in the graveyard. He was living there, and running around naked. Cutting himself. No one could chain him or hold him down and everyone was terrified of him.

Remember, the Lord came upon the man and it said that the man ran and fell at his feet, but the spirits cried out, have you come to torment us before our time? Then Jesus asked them their name. They told him,  “Legion, for we are many.” They begged him not to cast them out of the man, but he cast them into a herd of swine and the swine ran down the cliff and drown in the sea.

Well, I told her that this is all drug related and drugs are referred in scripture as, Pharmakae, or sorcery. So, this is the practice which the Lord referred to. Which allows anything to enter in. When we make our bodies an open portal to the spirit world by the practice of sorcery, the spirits have control and make people do things which are not natural, like eating people.

Now, if you read the book of Enoch, which was not included in the cannon of scripture, it speaks of these exact, things taking place, on the earth, thousands of years ago. That’s right, they were, using drugs, castings spells, and eating flesh! But these weren’t just people they were speaking about. They were a mutant race.

Enoch, was taken up in a whirl-wind of fire, without seeing death.I’ve never understood why, this book was not contained in scripture, but I find it fascinating. “Enoch walked with God.” This is why he did not see death. I think it’s worth reading. The descriptions are much like Revelation and you must remember that the vernacular wasn’t for the same. Many believe his “chariot of fire,”was some type of space ship. It is the same type of account given of Elijah’s departure, and in fact, they were the only two, who were taken up to the Lord, without dying.

I find it quite interesting, you will find the account of the Nephilim, (the giants) You can also read about these in the book of Genesis.  These are the mutants, most believe, the fallen angels and the daughter’s of men. And the scriptures indicate that “they existed before the flood and after.”

It would indicate from this article that they were using drugs, and using this to procreate and continue in their evil ways. A brief quote; Enoch 5 And the giants turned against then in order to devour men. And they began to sin against birds and against the animals and against the reptiles and against fish and they devoured one another’s flesh and drank blood from it. Then the Earth complained about the lawless ones.

Now this is when the Lord spoke to Noah and told him that he was sending a flood because He could not contend with creation any longer. It had become so vile that He said, He had to destroy mankind. This is when He spoke to Noah and spared a righteous remnant.

But He also said that upon Christ’s return, “it would be like the days of Noah. ” And all of these same things would be taking place. Sorcery would be at an all time high and the world would be in a state of lawlessness and rebellion.

Now, this morning I was speaking to my son, and I said, do you know where the word, ‘apocalypse’ was first used? In scripture. It means, Revelation, or unveiling. This is what is happening on this earth. So if you want to see what is happening read about it. He speaks about The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

It is fascinating, especially to any person who studies things like this. It was my first interest when I became a believer. I wanted to study biblical prophecy and end time events. The book of Daniel and the book of Revelation, or the compatible books for study.

The most interesting thing is that Daniel was told that these things would not be revealed (apocalypse) until the time of the end, when people would be running to and fro, seeking much knowledge. Sounds like the information age, to me.

Now the drugs are also coming in from different countries, such as Pakistan, China. What better way to begin the destruction of a nation? That sounds a little like the Horsemen are beginning to ride.

There are many different theories on the end times. But it pays to study the guide written by the creator. Because, as I reminded my son, if those zombies come along, I really won’t have to worry. I have the blood of Jesus Christ and the Sword of the Spirit. That’s all the protection I need!

How Can I Understand Revelation?


Well, I have heard from so many people over the years that they just can’t read the book of Revelation because it scares them. They also say it is way too difficult to understand. Well, I would like to speak to anyone that feels this way.

First of all, God has promised in the book of Revelation, that a special blessing is in store for all of those who would seek to read and understand this book. Why do you think our Lord told us this? It’s like a father telling his son/daughter, I will give you a special gift if you do this for me. The reason is clear, our Father desires us to have all knowledge that is available to us to help us. It behooves every human being to understand what the creator of all, is trying to convey to us.

To answer the second challenge that it is too difficult to understand, we must first remember that John wrote Revelations to all mankind and this means that he was witnessing future events but interpreting those events in the vernacular of his day. We must remember that John did not know what nuclear bombs were, or tanks or stealth bombers. He was seeing events so incredible that he said this was beyond comprehension. He saw fire that melted the earth and all of its elements. That sure sounds like a nuclear explosion to me.

I have stated in many of my posts that when I first started following Christ, eschatology was my passion. I picked up Hal Lindsey’s books and Jack Van Impe and many others. The movie Left Behind by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins.These books and video,  was all the rage and very close to interpretation of scripture. This helped me study through Revelation.

I have inserted a video that opens up some of the symbolism and I’m sure that if this piques your interest, you can find many others. Just keep in mind, you should have your bible and study it at the same time and also keep in mind that the Lord Himself has promised you a very special blessing. As unbelievers, I understand the fear of this book. Most don’t want to be reminded that our God who is full of mercy and grace, is also allowing the timetable to run its course until the judgement. The biggest fear of most people, I’m sad to say, is that they don’t want to face the truth. That our God is all merciful, however, He is also a righteous God.

To believers I only have one question? What’s your excuse?
