In my novel, The Great Harpazo Deception, I postulated that the sudden catching away of millions of Christians to be with the Lord in the air would be explained to those left behind as abduction by extraterrestrials. That scenario would not be hard to sell because I believe that the skies at that time indeed will be covered by UFOs. Why will these people be taken away to safety and what will happen to those people left behind? I try to explain what might happen in my sequel, Invasion: Israel.
The Bible calls the time of the end a time of nation rising up against nation, famines, pestilence, and earthquakes (Matthew 24:8). While I believe that we are in this time of birth pangs now, what the Bible calls the beginning of sorrows, it will only intensify exponentially after the Christians are removed to a place of safety in the Father's House in heaven where there are many mansions. Jesus told his followers when He left 2000 years ago that He was going to prepare a place for His followers in his Fathers house and that He would come for them (John 14:2-3). In this harpazo or catching away or rapture, He will come for his bride (the body of Christ) and take her to safety. Those left behind will suffer the horrible time of Jacob's Trouble (Jeremiah 30:7) or the seven years of the Tribulation (Matthew 24:21) when all hell will break loose on earth.
In both of my novels, it is the fallen angel, extraterrestrial Azazel who helps Satan carry out one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind. It was his demonic cohorts that cohabited with earthly women and produced the fallen nephilim offspring (Genesis 6:2, 4). They were punished for not keeping their own domain and abandoning their proper abode and were banished in eternal bonds in darkness for this seeking of strange (human) flesh (Jude 6-7).
This concept of extraterrestrial, fallen angels and their lust for so called strange flesh also manifests itself in my novel Invasion: Israel. With the Christians gone, the world is beset by two smallpox terrorist attacks, one aimed at Tel Aviv and one at Los Angeles. Israel nukes Baghdad and Damascus. The Statue of Liberty and the Hoover Dam and the Washington Monument are all blown up. Chaos reigns. Many in the federal government are gone and anarchy runs rampant. When you throw in massive earthquakes and famines and pestilence, it is clearly apparent that all is coming undone.
In the midst of this chaos, there appears on the scene a scientist, Dr. Sam Armilus, who runs Biogenetics Lab in Switzerland. He will find himself taking center stage in the world. According to the Bible, he will not only be a Jew but also will have no regard for the desires of women (Daniel 11:37). Jewish extra biblical midrashim, like Midrash Gellulah, describe this antichrist figure as having blond almost yellow hair, a pointed head, poor vision (I gave him thick bifocals), and a crooked finger. He also would very charismatic and able to manipulate people for his own sinister ends.
Dr.Armilus is searching for a cure for HIV/AIDS, not only to relieve the suffering of his homosexual brethren, but also to win over the chaotic world to his power and magnificence. He enlists the help of the extraterrestrial, fallen angel Azazel. Azazel gives him a cure which is a transgenic cloning of HIV resistant pig DNA into a human genome. This pig boy mutant cure catapults Armilus (the Jewish extra biblical name for the Antichrist) into the center of the world's attention. It is the embodiment of strange flesh.
"I will be famous," he shouted. "People will worship me, and the cure will come from a transgenic mutant. What a magnificent concept. I will not only give the HIV/AIDS sufferers back their health, but I will also give them their dignity back. We will be able to practice our sexual lifestyle without fear of retribution from a vengeful god. No more guilt trips. No more intolerance. No more attempts to change our lifestyle. No more threats about hell or damnation. Everyone on the planet will be able to live together in peace and harmony and good health. What a glorious place this will be and no Christians to boot. It doesn't get any better than that."
Schools and streets and hospitals are named after Dr.Armilus. His name is revered throughout the world. People write songs about him and children call out his name. He is named the United Nations Health Ambassador At Large.
While Armilus has to be of Jewish descent in order to be called Messiah by the Jews (Genesis 49:10) and in order to go into the Third Temple and declare himself to be God (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4), I also make him a rabid anti-Semite who sides with the Muslims and gloats over the destruction of the Jews worldwide. He goes again on Satellite TV worldwide to blame the Jews for all the terrorists' attacks against America and even calls for the crucifixion of the Jews. "Citizens of the world listen to me again," Dr.Armilus spoke later to a prime time CNN audience that listened reverently to his every word. "Beware of the Jewish menace. With the Christians gone, these remaining people of the Book are trying to destroy what is left of your country. They blew up your Hoover Dam and the Golden Gate Bridge. They smallpoxed Los Angeles. They destroyed your national icons like the Statue of Liberty and the Washington Monument. They want to dominate your country. Now that we have brought the scourge of HIV/AIDS under control, we cannot let your nation be polluted by these vermin. The International Jewish Conspiracy described so accurately a century ago in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion have tried for centuries to control the worlds money supply. Our new biometric mark will put them out of business once and for all. Their ancestors crucified the man of peace from Nazareth. We need to crucify them." Armilus works closely with Azazel to make sure that all who call upon the name of Jesus are immediately beheaded (Revelation 20:4) to stifle their witness. Armilus scoffs at those people who believed that man was created in image of god when his pig boy mutants now make a mockery of the Bible, especially using transgenic swine which the Old Testament called unclean.
As The Islamic armies invade Israel (Ezekiel 39-40), Azazel joins Armilus at Biogenetics and they watch the slaughter while gorging themselves on bloody lamb and wine. A Russian General Gogovitch leads a coalition of Islamic countries including Iran and Libya and the Islamic former Soviet Republics into the Northern part of Israel with thousands of tanks. The air is so polluted by volcanic ash that the Israelis cannot mount an aerial assault and all looks hopeless. Then at a time when all looks lost, God intervenes as the Bible declares.
But this is not the end of evil but is only the beginning. Armilus rides into Jerusalem on a white horse (Revelation 6:2) to torment the 144,000 Jewish witnesses (Revelation 14:3-5). The Third Temple has miraculously descended from the skies and Armilus arrives to help broker the seven year peace treaty (Daniel 9:27) and to eventually enter the Temple and declare himself to be God. How can this be possible considering what Armilus has said about the Jews? "For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect" (Matthew 24:24).
The extraterrestrial, fallen angel Azazel screeches in joyous abandon at the arrival of his Master.
