Economic Disaster Will Bring Down USA: The Beast Is Coming

On November 4, the American voters elected Barack Obama and substantial Democratic majorities in both the House and the Senate largely because of a media-created story that President Bush and the Republican Party were responsible for the housing finance meltdown and the economic crisis that has since followed.  The implicit claim was that if Obama and Democrats were placed in power, they would restore our economy.

You were lied to.

The truth is that the economic policies that brought down the U.S. economy were largely laid by Democrats during the Clinton and even the Carter administrations, and merely took time to build to a critical mass and explode.  Major newspaper stories from the New York Times and Los Angeles Times reveal that Democratic initiatives such as the Community Reinvestment Act used Government Supported Entities Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to provide loans for people who could not possibly repay them.  It was only a matter of time before such financing exploded as more and more people defaulted on loans.

A major part of the media narrative blaming President Bush and the Republican Party for the collapse that began to occur this year was that Bush and the Republicans refused to regulate the industry.  But that is not true.  As The New York Times revealed back in September 11, 2003, President Bush DID try to regulate the housing finance industry; and it was Democrats who blocked the Republican effort.  Democratic Rep. Barney Frank represented the Democratic position when he said, “These two entities — Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — are not facing any kind of financial crisis.  The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.”

In fact, Barney Frank – the powerful chairman of the House Financial Services Committee who oversaw regulation of Fannie and Freddie (and presided over them while their stock plunged 90% on his watch) – was still taking the same line as late as July 14, 2008, when he said, “I think this is a case where Fannie and Freddie are fundamentally sound, that they are not in danger of going under.”

Even former President Bill Clinton acknowledged that it was Democrats who were actually responsible for failing to regulate the housing financial markets:

Bill Clinton on Thursday told ABC’s Chris Cuomo that Democrats for years have been “resisting any efforts by Republicans in the Congress or by me when I was President to put some standards and tighten up a little on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.”

But the media largely omitted all of this information from public scrutiny, choosing instead – in a rather blatant act of partisan propaganda – to create a false narrative that the economic meltdown was a direct result of “failed Bush policies” combined with a Republican refusal to provide needed regulatory reform.  Whether you look at the Media Research Center, or at the Project for Excellence in Journalism (or again at their brand new study), or at the University of Wisconsin’s Wisconsin Advertising Project, there is now widespread agreement with one longtime ABC journalist that the media is dangerously biased.  Pew Research discovered that Americans believe by a 70% to 9% margin that the media is biased in favor of Barack Obama and against John McCain.  The media now represents a fifth column of government – a propaganda wing – that attacks conservatives and celebrates and defends Democrats and their liberal secular humanist ideology and policies.  Democracy is going extinct in the very country that founded democracy, because no free society can long survive such a climate of propaganda.  We need the truth; and we’re not getting it.

I don’t point this to be politically partisan, but merely to make the following two observations: 1) that we live in an age of deception that one would have only thought possible in a totalitarian state; and 2) that the very politicians who got us into the worst of the financial crisis have now been elected to fix the very problems they themselves largely created.  I further want to point out that anyone looking to politics or to political parties for salvation from the coming financial disaster will be disappointed, as neither party has been able to restrain the markets as they steam full-speed ahead toward a cliff.

I’m not trying to attack anyone for voting for one candidate or party versus another in this article.  What I am trying to do is tell you that if you are thinking, “Now that that lousy President Bush is gone we can finally fix our economy,” you are simply living in a media-induced pipe dream.

And it’s not just the media that is hiding facts from us and distorting reality; as the transition between administrations is under way, and as the government has rapidly taken on unprecedented powers and functions in a manner of a few weeks, we find that our very own government is engaged in a rather massive cover-up.  As a Bloomberg story reveals:

Nov. 10 (Bloomberg) — The Federal Reserve is refusing to identify the recipients of almost $2 trillion of emergency loans from American taxpayers or the troubled assets the central bank is accepting as collateral.

The first $700 billion (which subsequently ballooned into a goodie-laden $850 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program in order to win Congressional approval) was promised to go into buying troubled mortgages; now its essentially being used to pay off Wall Street’s gambling debts in a massive bait-and-switch.  Should we distrust our government’s competence, its honesty, or both?

And President-elect Barack Obama is now promising a FURTHER massive stimulus program that will run as much as $700 billion to even a $trillion.  That’s 700 billion MORE dollars on top of the already $2 trillion that the government has already thrown at the crisis.  This in spite of the fact that recent economic studies are revealing that FDR’s government stimulus programs actually only served to prolong the Great Depression.

Where is all this money coming from?  It should terrify you that it is coming out of printing presses as fast as the Federal Reserve can print it up, and it’s backed up by the promise, “We’re good for it!” and nothing else.  Money is pouring out in bailouts and stimulus packages not just by the billions, but by the trillions.  A billion seconds ago it was 1959; a billion hours ago Jesus was a young carpenter’s son in Galilee.  A billion hours ago we would have been in the stone age.  The government is throwing money at one crisis after another in staggering quantities.

Obviously, none of this bodes well for the economic future of America, or the world that grudgingly depends on America for economic stability.  The more money we print, the less our currency is worth.  Pure and simple.

I found the following extremely interesting account in Grant R. Jeffrey’s 1995 book, Final Warning: Economic Collapse and the Coming World Government (Toronto: Frontier Research Publications, 1995), in his chapter 14 entitled, “The Coming Economic Collapse.”  I transcribed certain passages in the chapter, and applied bold-faced font to passages I wished to particularly emphasize.

“That moment [when the United States government ‘hits the wall’ financially] will occur when the national debt and its compounding interest charges have risen so high that the total tax revenue of the country will not be enough to pay the interest on the national debt. At some point in time before we reach that point our governments will find that they will be unable to borrow international funds because foreign lenders will realize that they will never be repaid (p. 228).

“The present ‘recovery’ [circa 1995] is based to a large degree on the continuing speculative binge in the financial markets” (p. 229).

“The present recovery is not based on strong savings and increased capital growth as it should be, but rather on the greatest financial speculative market in this century.  This speculative market was fueled by extremely low interest rates and the monetary policy of the Federal Reserve.  This hyper-stimulation of the financial markets prepared the ground for the great speculative bubble that is only now beginning to break” (p. 230).

When American financial markets crumble, global financial markets and the world economy will be wiped out.  The staggering size of the U.S. corporate and government bond markets, together with the continued speculatively high price levels in the stock markets, are extremely dangerous.  However, these speculative bond and stock markets are paragons of conservative strength in comparison to the monstrous American financial derivatives market.  The staggering size of the purely speculative financial derivative market is now worth $21 trillion.  The amount of money at risk in the worldwide financial derivatives market has now exceeded $42 trillion.  Aside from the inherent risk involved in such an enormous amount of funds invested in one area, the real risk arises from the fact that these novel and little understood highly leveraged financial vehicles are totally unregulated by the Stock Exchange or government regulators!  Banks, brokerage houses, and insurance companies are creating hundreds of sophisticated financial derivative contracts that have never existed before without any rules to limit their risk” (p. 230).

The speculative bubble in stocks, bonds, and financial derivative investment vehicles is directly related to the explosive growth in debt during the last 15 years.  This huge debt load will limit our options and massively increase the economic pain when the final crash comes… When the crash comes, massive bankruptcies will hit businesses and homeowners as they find themselves unable to pay the interest on the huge loans accumulated in the past few years” (p. 237).

“In an ideal world the government and the Federal Reserve would simply adopt a laissez-faire approach and let market forces affect interest rates, et cetera.  However, this will never happen because the financial elite that run the government and Federal Reserve are liberal socialists at heart who believe they need to control every aspect of the economy.  Their desperate desire to control the market and economy will bring about the very disaster they fear” (p. 240).

Many large bands and insurance companies are exposed to the potential of devastating losses from their unwise and speculative investments in the stock and bond markets.  These supposedly conservative banks and insurance companies now hold over $1 trillion dollars worth of equities and bonds purchased at high prices in the last few years” (p. 244).

‘Banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies’ (Thomas Jefferson – 1799).  During the 1930s a great number of banks failed because of their exposure to bad investments in real estate, non-paying loans, and massive withdrawals by their customers” (p. 245).

“The banks remain dangerously exposed to international loans that are already behind in their payments.  Billions of dollars of these loans are non-paying and have been rescheduled to allow the developing nation additional time to make its loan payments.  In addition to these risks, many banks have participated in incredibly dangerous investments in the new financial derivative market in their desire to increase their profits.  Unfortunately, these volatile derivative investments can result in losses of literally billions of dollars in participating banks” (p. 246).

The Financial Derivatives Market

“Over the last decade, Wall Street and the larger banks have created an astonishing number of new, highly leveraged, speculative financial vehicles called derivatives.  These derivative contracts are designed to create massive profits for their Wall Street investors at the total risk of the poor investor.  Beginning with real estate investment trusts, the brokers created junk bonds, leveraged buyouts, options, and securitizing of debt.  These creative highly leveraged investments are so speculative and dangerous that they may trigger the greatest economic collapse in history.

In contrast to direct stock investments and bonds, financial derivatives are totally artificial financial vehicles.  Financial derivatives derive their value from their underlying traditional investments such as stocks and bonds.  These derivatives include such diverse financial vehicles as interest rate swaps and options, currency futures and options, stock index futures and options, collateralized mortgage obligations, commodity futures, interest only mortgages, principal only mortgages, synthetic securities, Eurodollar futures, and yield curve notes.  These new derivatives investments are so complicated that many of them can only be calculated by computers.  More importantly, these derivatives are so highly leveraged that a 1% rise in the value of the underlying security will produce a 100% gain in the equity invested.  However, a 1% decline will totally wipe out your entire investment.  When U.S. government bonds declined more than 10%, if you had bought one of these derivative bond investments with a 100 to 1 leverage, you would have lost ten times the amount you originally invested!  Several years ago Time magazine ran an article entitled, “The Secret Money Machine – Seven Years After the Crashthat pointed out the danger from exotic financial derivatives was extreme.  This article described derivatives as ‘computer generated hyper-sophisticated financial instruments that use the public’s massive bet on securities to create a parallel universe of side bets and speculative mutations” so vast that the underlying $1 trillion involved is more than three times the total value of all stocks traded on the New York Stock Exchange in a month and twice the size of the nation’s gross domestic product.

However, in the last few years the size and complexity of the financial derivatives market has exploded until today over $21 trillion is at risk in America and and astonishing $42 trillion is at risk worldwide.  To place these figures in perspective, the total value of all stocks traded on the New York Stock Exchange amounts to only $6 trillion.  We should remember that the stock market crash of 1987 that resulted in the loss of $1 trillion of investors’ funds was precipitated by a massive drop in the financial derivatives market.  During the last year the largest Japanese steel company in Germany lost $1.4 billion.  Then, Orange County, CA, lost $2 billion while the 270-year-old Barings Bank of England was forced into bankruptcy when they lost $1.3 billion in one week on a derivatives trade by one 28-year-old employee.  This incredibly dangerous derivatives market could very well be the trigger for the coming financial collapse that the Bible indicates will occur in the last days leading to the rise of Antichrist and the revived Roman Empire” (pp. 246-247).

I hope that this was enough to pop any residual bubbles that our financial and economic disasters have been all President Bush’s fault, and that his departure and Obama’s entrance will set everything aright.  Rather, this disaster was the result of nearly 20 years of incredibly dangerous government policies and investment vehicles that are now beginning to explode around us.  And if anything it appears that we should be even MORE worried now that Democrats have total control of government, given their documented role in the disaster.

Grant Jeffrey is an evangelical Christian Bible prophecy expert.  After reading some of his thoughts from nearly 15 years ago, I hope you never look at a man carrying a “The World Is Coming To An End” sign the same way ever again!  But in any event, I want you to understand the perspective being presented here: Jeffrey’s study of the Bible was what led to his belief that there would be a coming financial collapse which will lead to the rise of Antichrist and the coming Apocalypse.

And the actual picture is far more frightening than the story the media – or even Grant Jeffrrey, writing back in 1995 – is telling: today, there are more than $700 trillion in derivatives in the global economy.  That’s far more than the total currencies of all the governments in the entire world.  As one writer puts it, “In other words, every dollar of insurance on bonds issued by some deadbeat governments and corporations is leveraged 200 times!“  We’ve got a time bomb waiting to explode.  And it is becoming increasingly unlikely that that explosion will not come very soon now.

$700 trillion blowing up makes for a very loud boom, and a very big crash.

Why will the whole world turn to Antichrist in the last days?  Why will their adoration of him become actual worship?  Because he will emerge in a time of unprecedented crisis and disaster, and appear to save the day with brilliant solutions to unsolvable problems.

I’ve come across several people who mocked Bible prophecy because the United States didn’t seem to be mentioned in the past.  Why isn’t the most powerful nation in the history of the world not mentioned in end times prophecy?  Well, as incredible as the idea sounded just a few years ago, today we know: the United States isn’t mentioned in last day prophecy because the United States won’t matter.  At best, we will be just one more among the nations watching the invasion of Israel from the sidelines worrying over the impact upon the global economy (Ezekiel 38:12-13).

If you’re not already disturbed enough about the short-term future of the late great United States of America, you might want to chew on a little more food for thought:

Celente Predicts Revolution, Food Riots, Tax Rebellions By 2012
Paul Joseph Watson on 13 November, 2008

Prison Planet – The man who predicted the 1987 stock market crash and the fall of the Soviet Union is now forecasting revolution in America, food riots and tax rebellions – all within four years, while cautioning that putting food on the table will be a more pressing concern than buying Christmas gifts by 2012.

Gerald Celente, the CEO of Trends Research Institute, is renowned for his accuracy in predicting future world and economic events, which will send a chill down your spine considering what he told Fox News this week.

Celente says that by 2012 America will become an undeveloped nation, that there will be a revolution marked by food riots, squatter rebellions, tax revolts and job marches, and that holidays will be more about obtaining food, not gifts.

“We’re going to see the end of the retail Christmas….we’re going to see a fundamental shift take place….putting food on the table is going to be more important that putting gifts under the Christmas tree,” said Celente, adding that the situation would be “worse than the great depression”.

“America’s going to go through a transition the likes of which no one is prepared for,” said Celente, noting that people’s refusal to acknowledge that America was even in a recession highlights how big a problem denial is in being ready for the true scale of the crisis.

Watch the clip.

Celente, who successfully predicted the 1997 Asian Currency Crisis, the subprime mortgage collapse and the massive devaluation of the U.S. dollar, told UPI in November last year that the following year would be known as “The Panic of 2008,” adding that “giants (would) tumble to their deaths,” which is exactly what we have witnessed with the collapse of Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns and others. He also said that the dollar would eventually be devalued by as much as 90 per cent.

The consequence of what we have seen unfold this year would lead to a lowering in living standards, Celente predicted a year ago, which is also being borne out by plummeting retail sales figures.

The prospect of revolution was a concept echoed by a British Ministry of Defence report last year, which predicted that within 30 years, the growing gap between the super rich and the middle class, along with an urban underclass threatening social order would mean, “The world’s middle classes might unite, using access to knowledge, resources and skills to shape transnational processes in their own class interest,” and that, “The middle classes could become a revolutionary class.”

In a separate recent interview, Celente went further on the subject of revolution in America.

“There will be a revolution in this country,” he said. “It’s not going to come yet, but it’s going to come down the line and we’re going to see a third party and this was the catalyst for it: the takeover of Washington, D. C., in broad daylight by Wall Street in this bloodless coup. And it will happen as conditions continue to worsen.”

“The first thing to do is organize with tax revolts. That’s going to be the big one because people can’t afford to pay more school tax, property tax, any kind of tax. You’re going to start seeing those kinds of protests start to develop.”

“It’s going to be very bleak. Very sad. And there is going to be a lot of homeless, the likes of which we have never seen before. Tent cities are already sprouting up around the country and we’re going to see many more.”

“We’re going to start seeing huge areas of vacant real estate and squatters living in them as well. It’s going to be a picture the likes of which Americans are not going to be used to. It’s going to come as a shock and with it, there’s going to be a lot of crime. And the crime is going to be a lot worse than it was before because in the last 1929 Depression, people’s minds weren’t wrecked on all these modern drugs – over-the-counter drugs, or crystal meth or whatever it might be. So, you have a huge underclass of very desperate people with their minds chemically blown beyond anybody’s comprehension.”

The George Washington blog has compiled a list of quotes attesting to Celente’s accuracy as a trend forecaster.

“When CNN wants to know about the Top Trends, we ask Gerald Celente.”
— CNN Headline News

“A network of 25 experts whose range of specialties would rival many university faculties.”
— The Economist

“Gerald Celente has a knack for getting the zeitgeist right.”
— USA Today

“There’s not a better trend forecaster than Gerald Celente. The man knows what he’s talking about.”
– CNBC

“Those who take their predictions seriously … consider the Trends Research Institute.”
— The Wall Street Journal

“Gerald Celente is always ahead of the curve on trends and uncannily on the mark … he’s one of the most accurate forecasters around.”
— The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“Mr. Celente tracks the world’s social, economic and business trends for corporate clients.”
— The New York Times

“Mr. Celente is a very intelligent guy. We are able to learn about trends from an authority.”
— 48 Hours, CBS News

“Gerald Celente has a solid track record. He has predicted everything from the 1987 stock market crash and the demise of the Soviet Union to green marketing and corporate downsizing.”
— The Detroit News

“Gerald Celente forecast the 1987 stock market crash, ‘green marketing,’ and the boom in gourmet coffees.”
— Chicago Tribune

“The Trends Research Institute is the Standard and Poors of Popular Culture.”
— The Los Angeles Times

“If Nostradamus were alive today, he’d have a hard time keeping up with Gerald Celente.”
— New York Post

So there you have it – hardly a nutjob conspiracy theorist blowhard now is he? The price of not heeding his warnings will be far greater than the cost of preparing for the future now. Storable food and gold are two good places to make a start.

I don’t mean to equate Barack Obama with Adolf Hitler, but I do not believe that the world has seen just an outpouring of messianic expectations upon a man since Germany endowned Hitler with the title “Fuhrer.”  An examination of

Major media publications such as Reuters have used photographic techniques to literally create halos around Obama and portray him as larger and greater than real life.

Rhetoric that has simply been beyond creepy has been repeatedly applied to Obama:

Louis Farrakhan: “You are the instruments that God is going to use to bring about universal change, and that is why Barack has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn’t care anything about. That’s a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking.”

Spike Lee: “It means that this is a whole new world. I think…I’ve been saying this before. You can divide history. BB Before Barack. AB After Barack.”

And we have seen a level of expectation of basically godlike intervention grow such as I have never seen applied to any human being in my lifetime:

Peggy Joseph a young mother and enthusiastic supporter of Barack Obama said, “I never thought this day would ever happen. I won’t have to worry about putting gas in my car. I won’t have to worry about paying my mortgage.”

My point in showing the messianic adoration of Barack Obama is simply to demonstrate that our society, and in fact the entire world, is more ripe for the coming of the many false messiahs that Jesus said would come in the last days (Mark 13:5-6; 21-22), or for the Antichrist himself (Rev 13:1-9), than we have ever before witnessed.

We live in an unprecedented age of deception, with the media in even the freest countries practicing propaganda.  As a Soviet correspondent once said about the Western media:

“I have the greatest admiration for your propaganda. Propaganda in the West is carried out by experts who have had the best training in the world — in the field of advertizing — and have mastered the techniques with exceptional proficiency … Yours are subtle and persuasive; ours are crude and obvious … I think that the fundamental difference between our worlds, with respect to propaganda, is quite simple. You tend to believe yours … and we tend to disbelieve ours.”

We are truly on the verge of a catastrophic economic collapse, with $700 TRILLION in highly leveraged derivatives just waiting to overwhelm our financial systems like a tsunami, and experts such as Gerald Celente among many others predicting a global economic meltdown that can legitimately be described as “biblical” in proportions.

The nations described in Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 are already allied and aligned, and the Gog-Magog invasion described in Scripture is now not only possible but highly probable.

And we see – in the worshipful embrace of Barack Obama by the world – a precursor to the worship that will characterize the Antichrist (see Revelation 13) in the last days.

The beast is coming.  He is coming quickly.  And most of the world will be deceived by him.

Jesus talked about the need to recognize “the signs of the times” (Matthew 16:3) by looking at the conditions of the world and having the discernment to recognize what those signs meant.  He gave us a glimpse into the signs of the last times in Matthew 24, giving us further insight into the prophecies found in Daniel and Ezekiel.  And He appeared to His disciple St. John to provide an even fuller picture of the signs of the times in the last days.

We see now that the coming Apocalypse is imminent; it could happen at any time, and when the final pieces fall into place, they will likely do so in a matter of days, if not hours.

Jesus told us He would come like a thief in the night, meaning that it would be suddenly, and at a time when the world was not looking for Him (Matthew 24:36-44; Revelation 3:3; 16:15).  Recognize the signs of the times.  Look up!  Be ready!

As the markets melt down, you don’t have to fear what your investments are in, if you have your soul invested in Christ.  I truly have a peace that passes all understanding (Philippians 4:7) in these fearful economic times, and it is my hope that you can know that same peace of knowing where your treasure truly is.

    CHUCK MISSLER – COPYIST !

    Many these days are abandoning the pretribulation rapture view, and the June, 1995 article by Chuck Missler (”Byzantine Text Discovery: Ephraem the Syrian”) reveals why there is such a mutiny! First of all, the authoritative scholar that Missler cited, Dr. Paul Alexander, referred only to “Pseudo-Ephraem” and not to Ephraem the Syrian. (If an unsigned ancient manuscript resembles the real Ephraem but there is a question of authorship, they assign it to “Pseudo-Ephraem” – the word “pseudo” meaning “possibly.” For some groundless reason, Grant Jeffrey, the one who reportedly found the “discovery,” changed Dr. Alexander’s terminology! For more info on Jeffrey, Google “Wily Jeffrey.”) And Missler’s scholarship is also questionable. According to the Los Angeles Times (July 30, 1992), about one-fourth of Missler’s 1992 book “The Magog Factor” (which he co-authored with Hal Lindsey) was a daring plagiarism of Dr. Edwin Yamauchi’s 1982 book “Foes from the Northern Frontier”! Four months later Yamauchi’s publisher revealed that both Lindsey and Missler had promised to stop all publishing of their book. But in 1995 they were found publishing “The Magog Invasion” (which was either a revision or a replacement of “The Magog Factor”) – which had a substantial amount of the same plagiarism! (Dave MacPherson’s 1998 book “The Three R’s” has complete documentation on this and other pretrib scandals.) After listing “1820″ as the reported date of the birth of pretrib (he should have said “1830″), Missler sees a pretrib rapture in that Medieval writer’s phrase “taken to the Lord” and, since he evidently favors rewriting others instead of researching, is unaware that Dr. Alexander explained that this phrase really means “participate at least in some measure in beatitude” – which has reference only to doing acts of virtue on earth and not being raptured away from earth! Alexander added that the same ancient writer held to only one final second coming (and not to any prior coming) which would follow the time of Antichrist! (Readers can Google “Deceiving and Being Deceived” by MacPherson to see how groundless the Pseudo-Ephraem claim is and to learn how desperate pretribs are to find any pre-1830 evidence for their escapist view. Dr. Robert Gundry of Westmont College has also demolished the Pseudo-Ephraem claim in his 1997 book “First the Antichrist.”) Since Missler also leans on Thomas Ice, readers can evaluate Ice’s qualifications by Googling “America’s Pretrib Rapture Traffickers,” “Thomas Ice (Bloopers),” “Thomas Ice (Hired Gun),” and “Pretrib Rapture Diehards” (the latter part). For further light on the 179-year-old, fringe-British-invented pretribulation theory, Google or Yahoo “Pretrib Rapture – Hidden Facts.” Finally – why would anyone who has the brains of a rocket scientist want to be taken up with the concept of an any-moment pretrib rapture? The answer may well be that there’s more money in elevating a rapture than launching a rocket!

    Betty,
    Proper English usage entails the use of a device known as the “paragraph.” Basically, the paragraph separates discrete units of thought, allowing the writer to develop an argument, and the reader to follow that argument.

    Without the use of paragraphs, a writer appears to be engaging in one long rant, with neither structure nor organization.

    Especially when one is citing one conspiracy theory after another to demonize a theology without ever once saying anything about why one should actually not believe said theology.

    Just so you know, the pretrib view is actually the dominant view in Christianity today. This primarily due to the fact that the amillennial churches have experienced dramatic declines in membership, while evangelical and pentecostal churches – which overwhelmingly embrace the pretrib view – have gained correspondingly in membership.
