Book II - The Wildest Stories Ever Told Part XXI - The Weird Story of the Rapture

One day, about 1 5 years ago, as I was driving north on interstate 75 towards Atlanta, I noticed the car in front of me had a bumper sticker that proclaimed "in case of THE RAPTURE this vehicle will be unmanned". I wondered what in the world this fellow was talking about. Whether he was a nut, or if the vehicle should indeed become unmanned, either way, I didn't want to have such a mess in front of me. It could result in an accident and in no way did I want to be behind an accident waiting to happen. I stepped on the gas and passed him as quickly as possible, putting distance between us.

Then, over a period of time I began to see more of such bumper stickers. What is this thing, I wondered, that could unman cars? I soon found out. It is a belief among the fanatic Christians of various cults, the born-again and others, that at a given instant "the righteous", meaning themselves, of course, will be sucked up into the wild blue yonder as if by a huge vacuum cleaner. It could come at any unexpected time with no warning. You could be driving a car, or be in the shower, or sitting on the John. Nobody knows the time nor the hour, they say, but the Lord. And somehow they arc not agreed as to which Lord it is that knows, whether it is Jesus Christ, or Yahweh, or the Holy Ghost. When somebody asks me a question to which I could not possibly know the answer, I often respond with the expression "Christ only knows, and he won't tell". However, as to the timing of the rapture there are a number of passages in the bible where J.C. claims even he doesn't know the time, only "the Father" knows. In Matthew 24:36 purportedly he said, "No one knows about that day or the hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father". Evidently it is very tightly classified as Super Super Secret. Why, Christ only knows, or does he?

Be that as it may. In trying to find some biblical basis for the much touted rapture, I hunted up my King James bible and tried to find the word "rapture" in the "Concordance", or the index, and to my surprise. It wasn't there. I later found out that the idea of "the rapture" is a fairly recent invention concocted by modern day con-artists to put some zingaroo in their wild preachings. Evidently these preachers base the idea that at a given split second the selected few (themselves, of course) will be "whooshed" up into the stratosphere there to meet their Lord Jesus Christ in ecstatic and blissful union.

What happens thereafter is somewhat vague, long winded and tedious. Some say the rapture is equivalent to the Second Coming of Christ, some say it is not, but precedes the Second Coming. Evidently the whole idea is a recent invention based on a number of disjointed passages in both the Old and the New Testament, many of which could mean anything, or nothing. Two commonly quoted passages are:

(a) I Corinthians 1 5:51 and 52, to wit: "Behold I show you a mystery; we shall not all sleep but we shall all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump, for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed".

(b) I Thessalonians 4:16 and 17. Quote: "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord".

So there you have it. Ghosts from the dead shall meet with the live bodies up in Cloud Nine, to join with the Lord, and all shall live in eternal bliss and rapture for ever after. Promises! Promises! Promises!

But such good fortune shall not be shared by all. No, indeed. In fact, damned few will cut it, only one in forty, or 2.5 percent. The rest shall burn in eternal hellfire! Burn, baby, burn!

in trying to find out more about the thinking of these spaced-out space experts, I studied two booklets that were sent to me by the World Bible Society out of Nashville, Tenn. The first one was written by Edgar C. Whisenant and it was entitled "88 Reasons Why the Rapture could be in 1988". In fact, he pinpoints the timing even more specifically "at the Feast of Trump" (Rosh-Hash-Ana) September 11-12-13 of 1988. Evidently whereas the Son was not privy to this highly classified super secret, Edgar C. claims that he has cracked the Code, and gives 88 reasons why, sure as shooting. It is going to happen within a three day period, namely between September 11 and 13, 1988. Now that is calling it pretty close.

The reasons he gives arc mostly all dredged Up out of various passages of both the Old and the New Testament. Here is an example of one reason out of the 88. Whisenant quotes (of all people) Rabbi Meir Kahane, a real Christ hater. The reasoning, if you can follow, goes something like this. Israel is the time clock of God throughout history. "The State of Israel, which rose up in the year 1948, is not only the beginning of the redemption, but of the grace period granted us today". That grace period is forty years, he says, "a last opportunity to reverse needless disaster, to bring the redemption with grandeur and majesty". Forty years end with the church age on Rosh-Hash-Ana in 1988. Ipso facto, September 11- 13, 1988 is the end of time, says Edgar C. Whisenant.

Poor Whisenant! Like so many other prophets of doom and disaster, of the end of the world, of the end of time, etc., September 13, 1988 came and went and no rapture! Damn it!

But not to be discouraged! Like so many other idiotic prophets have done in the past, he set a new future date. He soon came out with a new 90 page booklet called "The Fatal Shout: Rapture Report 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993" This time he wasn't going to box himself in so tightly,but predicted it could (would!) happen during any one of those five years. In trying to explain what went wrong in the first prediction he says he goofed in forgetting that the first century A.D. had no zero year, as do all the others, like 1,900, etc., and this threw him off his precise schedule. Ha, ha, ha!

In the second book, he has a number of complicated charts and graphs that make less sense than Mr. Toad in Alice in Wonderland. However, he has some other interesting things to say, some of which should scare the hell out of any believing Christian.

Whisenant says that according to Wilmington’s Guide to the Bible, in the 6000 years from Adam to the start of the Millennium, God will have tested approximately 40 billion human beings on earth. Of this number, about one billion will have elected, of their own free will, to follow God's ways instead of theirs. By the blood of Jesus, these people will be saved from damnation and live with Jesus and rule his universe throughout eternity. The other 3 billion, it appears, will be cast into Hell, he says.

Wow! That is a real mouthful! 39 billion human souls will be cast into Hell! 39 billion! Imagine! This planet now has a little over 5 billion people and it is already vastly overcrowded. Hell must be one hell of a huge place. Imagine this fiery torture chamber that is big enough to accommodate more than seven times as many people as are now living on this over-crowded planet! Thirty-nine times as many as are going to heaven! And there sits the loving, oh, so loving. Lord and Jesus Christ, not to mention the Holy Ghost, gloating about their handiwork, none of them evidently giving a good goddamn about all those 39 billion screaming, screeching, writhing and agonizing victims in that huge fiery pit, a torture compound evidently seven times as large as Planet Earth. That's love? (See "Hell", C.C. No. 49 in The White Man's Bible.)

The preachers will blandly explain away that these poor devils had their chance, and since "of their own free will" they chose to be sinners the poor bastards deserve what they get.

Whoa! Wait a minute! We don't buy that "free will" gimmick. According to their story, "God" created all, and this includes human beings and that huge fiery torture chamber. Evidently he never makes a mistake, they tell us, and he knew exactly what he was doing. He knew how things were going to turn out in advance, and obviously they turned out just as he willed and planned. If his prime creation, mankind, was so damn imperfect and only one in forty could pass the test, he must have wanted it that way. He was the designer and the creator. If he botched the job, either intentionally or otherwise. It would seem to any logical person the fault lies with God, the creator. He obviously wanted 39 billion suffering people to end up being barbecued in the fiery pit forever and a day. And this is love? What a horrendous sadistic monster this super spook must be to concoct such a sadistic set-up. And this kind of garbage the Christians go to church every Sunday to worship.

Fortunately, all this idiotic nonsense exists only in the minds of demented kooks. In a faraway fantasy land, a fable concocted by deranged people who didn't have all their marbles together. I have another book recently sent to me by one of our activists. Rev. John Brooks. The name of this book is "Origins" and it is written by Richard E. Leakey, the son of those famous archaeologists. Louts B. and Mary Leakey. In this book Richard Leakey and his co-partner Roger Lewin in a scholarly and scientific procedure de-scribe the long evolution of the species called homo sapiens sapiens (modern man) over a period of millions of years. They describe the real world as it has slowly changed from the beginning of this planet some four and a half billion years ago to the present and project it on into the future.

But before they trace the early beginnings of mankind, they do an excellent job of putting this tiny, insignificant ball called Planet Earth in its proper place. They remind us that our tiny planet revolves about the sun, which is only one of ten billion stars in our own galaxy, the Milky Way.

This, in turn, is only one of the millions of galaxies that make up our vast and boundless universe. The enormity of this scale helps to put our existence on Planet Earth in its proper perspective. Nature created and developed us over a long process of Evolution lasting millions of years in accordance with the Eternal Laws of Nature.

However, it is not the objective of the Church of the Creator to speculate as to how did it all start. As I have said before - Christ only knows, and he won't tell, because he isn't here and there is no evidence that he ever was. We Creators are not concerned about solving all the vast mysteries of the universe. We arc concerned about a most pressing and urgent problem, namely the survival, expansion and advancement of our own kind, the White Race, Nature's Finest. This we can only do if we brush away all those idiotic cobwebs concocted by Jewish Christianity, face the real world, and work and organize to take control of our own destiny away from out of the slimy hands of the Jews.

This we can do and this we must do. RAHOWA!

Creativity is the only answer to the massive problems that confront us. It has the Total Program, the Final Solution, the Ultimate Creed.

Christianity is Mass insanity built on a foundation of superstition, gullibility and ignorance fortified by an intensive campaign of mind manipulation.

For the White Race Creativity is the most meaningful and beneficial idea in its entire history.
