Listen! I am telling you a mystery:
We will not all fall asleep,
but we will all be changed,
in a moment, in the blink of an eye,
at the last trumpet.
For the trumpet will sound,
and the dead will be raised incorruptible,
and we will be changed.
(1 Corinthians 15:51-52)
What do we consider to be news?
There are several elements of newsworthiness. Good news stories have more than one of these elements:.
1) Prominence – A well-known person, place, or event has a stronger news angle than something that the audience isn’t familiar with.
Sidney Powell Claims Trump ‘Can Simply Be Reinstated,’ Biden Told to Leave White House / Newsweek, May 30, 2021
Powell made the remarks during the “For God & Country Patriot Roundup” conference in Dallas this weekend. Also speaking at the event was retired general Michael Flynn, the former Trump national security who has also repeatedly pushed false claims about the 2020 election.
“He can simply be reinstated,” Powell said of Trump during the conference. The crowd cheered loudly in response to her groundless claims.
“And Biden is told to move out of the White House,” the lawyer continued with a smirk on her face. “And President Trump should be moved back in. I’m sure there’s not going to be credit for time lost, unfortunately. Because the Constitution itself sets the date for inauguration. But he should definitely get the remainder of his term and make the best of it. That’s for sure,” Powell insisted.
2) Timeliness – Current news has more impact than something that happened yesterday or last week.
EU leaders urge unfettered probe into origins of COVID-19 / MSN News, June 10, 2021
“Investigators need complete access to whatever is necessary to really find the source of this pandemic,” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen told a news conference in Brussels.
The head of the European Council, Charles Michel, said: “The world has the right to know exactly what happened in order to be able to learn the lessons.” He added that the EU supported all efforts.
3) Oddity – If something is unusual, shocking, or bizarre, the strangeness alone could make it newsworthy.
Pentagon whistleblower says UFOs have meddled with secret US nuclear weapons facilities and even forced some offline – calling actions a ‘global threat’ / DailyMail, June 9, 2021
Luis Elizondo, the former head of the Pentagon’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, said UFOs have interfered with U.S. nuclear technology. Several UFO sightings have been above secret nuclear weapons facilities and almost every major nuclear power across the globe has reported these sightings.
Elizondo said that the phenomenon is a national security ‘concern,’ and said that the same observation has been made in other countries, making it a ‘global issue,’ Elizondo said considering the huge nuclear footprint the U.S. has there should be nothing surprising about increased interest by the UFOs. The Pentagon’s UAP Task Force is set to reveal their findings when they submit a long-awaited report on UFOs to Congress on June 25.
4) Consequence – If the impact of an event may directly affect readers, they’ll want to know about it.
Erdogan Advisor Presents Vision Of United Islamic Superpower / Middle East Media Research Institute, January 14, 2020
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s chief advisor, retired Turkish general Adnan Tanrıverdi, has been articulating a vision of a unified Islamic superpower through conferences and documents published by his organizations. This vision is reflected in President Erdoğan’s foreign policy.
The Justice Defenders Strategic Studies Center (ASSAM), of which Tanrıverdi is chairman of the board, has scheduled seven annual “congresses,” of which three have taken place, to work through the technical problems in the formation and governance of an “Islamic union.” At a recent ASSAM Congress, Tanrıverdi called for the coordination of the joint manufacturing of weapons and military equipment among Islamic countries, saying: “States cannot stand tall against the countries whose weapons they use.” ASSAM has also published a 69-page draft of a constituion for a planned shari’a-based confederation of 61 Islamic countries. This constituion declares that “sovereignty belongs to shariah,” that Istanbul is to be the capital of the confederation, that the Arabic language would be taught in all of its schools, and that its name will be “Asrica,” which is formed from a combination of Asia and Africa.
5) Conflict – Audiences are always interested in disagreements, arguments, and rivalries.
Echoing Trump, Netanyahu says election stolen, ‘deep state’ within new coalition / The Times of Israel, June 7, 2021
“The deep state is deep within this government,” Netanyahu said of the nascent coalition set to replace him, using a term for a supposed conspiracy of bureaucrats working against the elected leadership, popularized by Trump during his time in office.
Netanyahu repeatedly accused Bennett of lying to the public, calling him at one point a “habitual liar.” And he claimed that the incoming government was “more dangerous” than Israel’s pullout from Gaza, which he said resulted in Hamas rocket attacks, and the Oslo peace accords, which gave the Palestinians limited self-rule in the West Bank.
“Bennett is holding a fire sale on the country,” he charged, claiming that the coalition was coming together only because votes had been “stolen from right [and given] to the left.”
6) Impact – Whether it’s a peaceful protest that encompasses five city blocks or a 52-car pileup on the pike, the more people involved in the event, the more newsworthy it is.
Lindell Sues Dominion For $2B, Details Evidence Of 19 Cyber Attacks From China That Flipped 530k Votes In 5 Key Battleground States / CD Media, June 3, 2021
Dominion, Smartmatic, and others are desperate to cover up gross security flaws in their electronic voting systems—and information showing cyber attacks and hacking in the November 2020 election—by uniting in a common purpose to use the litigation process to attempt to suppress the revelation and public discussion of these truths.
In addition, Exhibit 12 shows a subset of 20 documented successful hacks through the election management system in the states of Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Arizona resulting in a total 555,864 votes switched from President Trump to candidate Vice President Biden in the 2020 general election. These hacks came primarily from within China and are identified by the date, location, and the network from which the hack originated and the location and network that was the target of the hack.
What was news in the 1st century?
In the first century there were only around 200 million people in the world, and the Roman empire ruled the planet. With an estimated population between 800,000 and 1 million residents, Rome was the largest and most powerful city by the year 1 AD. Much of what we know about civilization in this ancient era comes from history recorded during Rome’s reign.
How can we explain a miniscule movement from a corner of Palestine in the first century that rapidly grew into the dominant faith of the entire Roman Empire, which was formerly steeped in a myriad of pagan religions? The early Christians had no church buildings . . . no mass media . . . no social status . . .
Jesus was going all over Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people. Then the news about Him spread throughout Syria. (Matthew 4:23-24)
In the face of unimaginable and unrelenting persecution, Christianity not only survived, it thrived.
Justin Martyr, writing to Emperor Antoninus Pius, described the believers: “We formerly rejoiced in uncleanness of life, but now love only chastity; before we used the magic arts, but now dedicate ourselves to the true and unbegotten God; before we loved money and possessions more than anything, but now we share what we have and to everyone who is in need; before we hated one another and killed one another and would not eat with those of another race, but now since the manifestation of Christ, we have come to a common life and pray for our enemies and try to win over those who hate us without just cause.”
Critics of the Bible often say the events which took place in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus are not historical, but mere myth. The basis of this assertion is the belief that miracles are not possible: The idea that a man could come back from the dead after being brutally crucified, is preposterous to some, doubtful to others. To an atheist, the Good News is “fake news.”
But, the facts of the historical record reveal that men did see Jesus dead on a Roman cross, and then alive three days later.
These men also state that Jesus opened the eyes of the blind, caused the crippled to walk, turned water into wine, and walked on the surface of the sea.
We proclaim to you the one who existed from the beginning, whom we have heard and seen. We saw him with our own eyes and touched him with our own hands. He is the Word of life. (1 John 1:1)
For we were not making up clever stories when we told you about the powerful coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. We saw his majestic splendor with our own eyes. (2 Peter 1:16)
One of the most compelling pieces of evidence from secular history that serves to validate the presence of Jesus on earth, dying on a cross and resurrected from the dead, is the persecution of the early followers of Jesus by the Roman government.
The Romans were very tolerant of every religion, except Christianity. The Roman Emperors determined that Christianity was a terrible superstition, in which its followers believed in the impossible: their leader had risen from the dead.
In the year 112 A.D., Pliny the Younger—governor of the Roman province of Bithynia (Turkey)—wrote a letter to the Roman Emperor Trajan, requesting clarification on his orders to execute those who were Christians. This was Emperor Trajan’s reply:
You have taken the method which you ought in examining the causes of those that had been accused as Christians, for indeed no certain and general form of judging can be ordained in this case. These people are not to be sought for; but if they be accused and convicted, they are to be punished; but with this caution, that he who denies himself to be a Christian, and makes it plain that he is not so by supplicating to our gods, although he had been so formerly, may be allowed pardon, upon his repentance. As for libels sent without an author, they ought to have no place in any accusation whatsoever, for that would be a thing of very ill example, and not agreeable to my reign.”
This letter exchange between two Roman officials, which are now kept in the Archives of the Roman Senate and originating from a secular source, verifies that many thousands of Christians were executed for simply believing in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Remember that the resurrection and a belief in Jesus Christ are inseparable.
Without the resurrection, there is no Christianity.
What will be the breaking news in the 21st century?
The next world-changing tipping point will be the global disappearance of millions of Christians:
Where have the godly and faithful people gone?
When this worldwide Rapture happens, it will bring a level of shock we can’t comprehend. People from every segment of society will simply vanish, leaving behind spouses, children, neighbors, and co-workers.
What happens when millions are gone in an instant?
Rather than acknowledge that the Christians were right, and the saved have been Raptured away from this dying world, the disappearance of millions will be explained as a mass alien abduction, in order to free humanity to finally progress to the next stage of its great and glorious evolution.
The coming of the lawless one is based on Satan’s working, with all kinds of false miracles, signs, and wonders, and with every unrighteous deception among those who are perishing. They perish because they did not accept the love of the truth in order to be saved. For this reason God sends them a strong delusion so that they will believe what is false, so that all will be condemned—those who did not believe the truth but enjoyed unrighteousness. (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)
Don’t believe the deception!
It’s not extraterrestrial in nature… it’s supernatural.
It’s a manifestation of a spiritual war that is being waged around us—between the demonic forces of evil (led by Lucifer) and the divine forces good (led by God).
Again, don’t buy the alien deception!
First, you need to trust Christ today so that you are part of the soon Rapture of the bride of Christ… not left behind to witness the great deception become the strong delusion during the great tribulation!
Second, if you chose not to trust Christ and you wake up to a day in the near future where you discover millions of men, women and children have disappeared… you now know (1) it wasn’t the aliens and (2) it wasn’t the “Galactic Federation” benevolently intervening to enable humanity to advance to the next great stage of its development.
Rather, you now know that it was God rescuing (snatching away) His children before He unleashes His wrath on a wicked and sinful world during the apocalyptic seven-year tribulation period, also known as Daniel’s 70th Week and the time of Jacob’s Trouble!
If that’s the situation you find yourself in, then know that things are not going to get better—they’re going to get worse… much worse and very quickly!
However, also know that you can still be saved by turning to Christ (and not taking the mark of the beast)… but it will likely cost you your life (the alternative being you are still going to die but will also face eternal damnation in hell).
The intensity of the deception has reached a fevered pitch. We are clearly on the very threshold of the Rapture. Don’t miss it for the world! Get on the Ark that is Jesus Christ and escape the coming apocalyptic tribulation period!
Aliens? No, it’s the great deception folks… don’t fall for it!
Today is your day of salvation… you may not have a tomorrow!
This is the breaking news!
If you are not sure that you are saved, you can accept Christ into your life right now, by praying:
“Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. I ask you in to my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior.”
This was such a great piece to read. Clear writing and loads of valuable information. Thank you.

Big news very soon will be millions of believers are gone “raptured” and millions of people not looking or expecting the rapture have been left behind and now must try to live under anti-christ rule.

Miracles happen to Christians, performance records show. Desert storm soldiers that were Christian some had bullet holes in their clothes when no bullets hurt them. I had seen that in the Navy paper in 1993.
