Before you close this window, realize I’m not talking about all Christians. This list, however, is pretty crazy. Dr. Dave Williams gives 11 things that Christians should do if the Rapture is happening and God doesn’t take them.
1. Don’t Believe The Media
.Yes, of course, the first thing he says is to not believe the “secular media.”
2. Ditch Your Cell Phone.
Whelp, I guess your cell phone is evil if you don’t get raptured. They believe that you will be tracked using your phone.
3. Don’t Kill Yourself.
One this part of the list, he says:
“Whenever there’s social disorder and confusion, people tend to think suicide is the only way out. It’s not. You probably feel hopeless, but there is still hope. The Holy Spirit will still be working during the final shabua. Pray and ask Him to guide you, give you strength and dwell in you.”
4. Repent Immediately
Yep, so if God doesn’t take you during the Rapture, then you must still pray to him. Makes total sense.
5. Have A Bible.
Again, God didn’t pick you as one of the “chosen,” so you still have to read his book and pray to him.
6. Leave Your House And Get Out Of The Cities
Good apocalypse advice.
Again, you didn’t get chosen, so you still have to pray to the God that didn’t choose you?
8. Don’t Go To Church.
Dr. Williams says:
“That’s right—don’t go to church or join the world conglomerate religion because it will be under the control of the false prophet (Rev. 13). All true, godly ministers have left the earth in the rapture. Do not believe the lies of the ministers who are left behind. Even if you see miracles and apparent wonders, do not believe them. They are lying wonders (Matt. 24:24; Mark 13:22; Luke 21; 2 Thess. 2:9). Deception will be the order of the day. Delusion will be everywhere, especially in ‘churches.'”
9. Get A Small Radio.
This is also good apocalypse advice. Also, remember to double-tap the zombies.
10. Keep Praying For Loved Ones.
“God will still answer prayers during the Tribulation. Your prayers may be the key to seeing your loved ones again after this period of supreme agony is over.”
11. Spread The List.
Of course, Dr. Williams says that you should spread this list everywhere.
Additionally, he ends the article saying that there are more Rapture tips along the way. This is one of the most ridiculous conspiracy theories I’ve seen.
