Today I watched Apocalypse II: Revelation on the Daystar network. It was made back in 1999 and I haven't seen it in over 10 years, so it was good to watch it again.
Apocalypse II: Revelation is a 1999 Christian/thriller and sequel to Apocalypse by Cloud Ten Pictures.
Three months have passed since the events of the previous film. Franco Macalousso (Nick Mancuso) has convinced many of those left behind that he is the true Messiah. But is he?
Counter-terrorism expert Thorold Stone (Jeff Fahey) tries to put the pieces of his life together. His wife and daughter were among the millions who vanished in the Rapture. In the course of his investigation of an underground resistance movement, he uncovers a conspiracy that leads to the heart of the new world order. Stone throws in his lot with this group of rebel Christians, which includes journalist Helen Hannah (Leigh Lewis), a computer engineer working for One Nation Earth (Tony Nappo), and a beautiful blind cynic (Carol Alt). The "Haters" find themselves in a race against time as the World Government distributes Virtual Reality headsets to every single person on Earth, to be activated on the Messiah's "Day of Wonders".
The rest of the description at the Wikipedia link (re: the plot) has a lot of spoilers in it, so I recommend viewing the movie first.
My favorite movie in this series has always been Judgment. But Apocalypse II: Revelation ranks as a close second favorite.
The O.N.E. (One Nation Earth) theme is eerily similar to what we are experiencing during the BHO years of government surveillance, lies, deceit, crimes, and rampant corruption. The obvious persecution against Christians is like no other time in American history. We are the last group that is now labeled as "deserving" of hatred, suppression, lies being spewed against us, and frowned upon to enjoy the freedom to share the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ in the public arena without ridicule. Like in the film, Christians these days are often referred to as "haters" [i.e. by radical homosexual activists, Islamists, atheists, skeptics, Hollywood - you name it!] and the rabid hatred against us and the attempts to suppress the name of Jesus Christ from the public square has been more and more evident over the last two decades.
The so-called "Arab Spring" has led to tens of thousands of deaths - both Muslims and Christians - because ObamaFRAUD and his ilk thought it would be a good idea to remove the dictators of those countries and attempt to replace them with radical Islamists like the Muslim Brotherhood. Now our government clowns are arming the rebels who are actually Muslim terrorists! The slaughter of Christians who were previously protected in these Arab lands has ratcheted up and churches are being burned for no other reason than for hatred against Christ and those who believe in Him.
Back to the movie.
What is very interesting to see in this film is how the so-called O.N.E. "messiah" - Franco Macaluso - utilizes signs and miracles (healing a man in a wheelchair and a blind woman in the film) in order to fool those who were left behind (after the Rapture of believers from the earth prior to the Great Tribulation years) into giving up their souls to satan and taking the "mark of the beast."
People who do not know the Bible will be easily fooled by the antichrist, the beast, and the false prophet - one big unholy trinity designed to take the souls of those who heretofore have rejected Christ as Lord and Savior.
Ten years ago, I thought that the end times were still very far off. I even thought that we really weren't experiencing the "birth pangs" that Jesus warned us about as signs pointing towards the coming of the end of the age. But now, with this lawless, tyrannical, corruption filled ObaMARXIST BADministration, I see the "birth pangs" becoming a reality right before my very own eyes.
The fact that so many Americans were fooled into voting for ObamaFRAUD a second time speaks volumes about how easily many Americans will also be fooled by the coming antichrist. Maybe all of the scandals connected to Obama [those known, as well as those not so well known yet] and the current "1984" type Big Brother government snooping and surveillance; plus the attempts to take away our Constitution rights of free speech, our liberty, our freedom of association, our freedom of the press (except for the government controlled patsies), and the grab of our gun rights will awaken more Americans to smell the tyranny! The added sins of omission through the lack of any prosecution for wrong doing by government officials and workers, as well as the lack of justice from those who swore to uphold the Constitution should chill the hearts and souls of every American! Could we possibly be so lucky as to see BHO not finish his second term in office?
No matter how bad it gets, we can take consolation in this: God is ultimately in control and Jesus Christ wins in the end. We just need to hold onto His promises as we watch, work, and wait for His return for His own (born-again believers) when we will be caught up and will meet the Lord in the air and thus, will be with the Lord forever!
Have a blessed Sunday!
