Man vs. Christ
The final battle
A small group will be persecuted for swearing allegiance to the extra terrestrial entity that comes to subjugate the planet. They will be victorious.
That entity approaching from outer space is “alien” to the majority of those dwelling upon the Earth and is hostile to the interests of the terrestrial “powers that be.”
Even now, man scans the heavens looking for the sign of the advancing Conqueror. His approach was prophesied in the Bible and has been expected by a small remnant of people for nearly two millennia.
The elements necessary to wage war against this threat to the world are being developed or have already been put in place.
In the early 1980’s, the Unites States, acting under the direction of military advisers to then President Ronald Reagan, proposed the creation and implementation of weaponry which could be used to repel such an assault.
In a meeting with then Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev, Ronald Reagan made the statement:
It was in this context that space based weapons systems had been conceived. Operating under the title of the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), the system was ostensibly meant to strike missiles carrying nuclear payloads. Other proposals included the targeting of enemy satellites and even ground based targets.
Although the development and planned implementation of space based weaponry has been downplayed by the government, according to Wikipedia:
At about the same time that the idea of space based weaponry was being conceived, the United States began making plans to place a telescope in space, which would have the ability to peer deep into the heavens. That device which was eventually named the Hubble Space Telescope (HST), was planned for launch at the same time the SDI project was announced. Due to numerous setbacks, its launch was delayed until 1990.
Despite the best efforts of man, this apparatus has never been fully operational. Nonetheless, scientists continue to use the HST to search deep space. It is reasonable to conclude that if they were indeed searching the heavens for an approaching threat, that they would not inform the inhabitants of planet Earth until the “last minute”. They would of course, need time to formulate a plan by which they could control mankind in the panic which would follow such a discovery.
As an adjunct to the HST, NASA has recently deployed the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) telescope, which began relaying images to ground based stations just this year. This device is said to have been tracking asteroids capable of striking the Earth including Apophis.
Although NASA has downplayed the threat to the planet by Apophis, Russian scientists are taking the threat more seriously. The real question is whether the plans being made to destroy an approaching heavenly object are intended for an asteroid or an “alien” life force.
Regardless of the plans of man, the Bible describes an asteroid like object which will land in the sea, destroying a third part of it.
If they are to prosecute a war in the heavens, the leaders of planet Earth would need some way of targeting any attacks on the threat once it were in range of their weapons.
The XSS-10 for example, which some speculate is related to the abandoned LS-10 space based radar project, was launched in 2003 and seems to be intended to “direct traffic” in any military action taking place in the upper atmosphere. Such a device would be essential if one were to conduct battle in space.
Space based weapons platforms such as the High Energy Laser (HEL), and Mid-Infrared Advanced Chemical Laser (MIRACL) projects have already been revealed to be a reality. That they seem to be hoping for a "MIRACLE" from "HELL" is noteworthy. The only question yet to be answered fully, is what these projects are truly intended to destroy.
Regardless of whether one believe that an attack from the heavens will take place or not, it is obvious that most of the hardware by which such an assault might be sighted and repelled, is being planned or is already in place.
Naturally, the rulers of the planet may not yet be aware of the true nature of the imminent threat coming from the heavens. The spirits which guide them however, are under no such illusion. That they could be deceived by dark spiritual forces and motivated to suit the agenda of those entities which propel men into action might never enter into their imagination. Such possibility is immaterial. The end will be the same.
When this battle between the rulers of the Earth and the invasion force from the heavenlies takes place, our American leaders will doubtless be hiding in the rocks of the mountains, in a place known as the “Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center.” It will not save them.
Although many mockers and scoffers deride the notion that Jesus Christ is returning to the Earth in power and great glory, in the great day of his wrath, all the tribes of the earth shall mourn. We who have stood with Christ in defiance of the leaders of the world, will be vindicated. We will at that time look up, knowing that our redemption draws night.
Prepare to meet your God.
