BEWARE THE SNARE
Which Shall Come Upon All The World – Part III
In the present series, we’ve tied the Snare which Christ told us would occur, to the false prophets, who would come in the LORD’s name, saying “the time draweth near” (Luke 21:8). Jesus said that these false teachers will present themselves as Christians (they “shall come in my name” – Matthew 24:5), and they will say that He is indeed the LORD (Many will say “I am Christ” – Mark 13:6), indicating this dreaded “Snare” will originate from within the ranks of Christianity.
In Luke’s Gospel, which mentions the Snare, the LORD prefaced His warning about this universal trap which “shall come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth,” with a cautionary statement that the believers should be very careful as the Snare could take them by surprise:
“And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares” (Luke 21:34).
Here is a fascinating connection to the Snare, for the Holy Spirit has embedded subtle clues pointing us to the true nature of this threat. Indeed, JESUS clearly connects an “overcharging” of the heart, with the conditions that will leave the believer vulnerable to the Snare. This is only one of three phenomena He mentions, which can cause individuals to be “unaware” that the prophesied trap has crept up on them.
The other two causes – drunkenness and an inordinate focus on the things of this world (the “cares of this life” in the text) -- are relatively obvious. After all, if you spend every waking moment in pursuit of career goals, carnal pleasure, sports fanaticism, or an obsession with who knows what, you’re hardly watching out for a Spiritual Snare. Likewise, intoxication is not the best course of action when you’re supposed to be alert, standing guard, and watching for an approaching enemy.
This leaves us with the “surfeiting” – an archaic term which is said to have the potential to “overcharge” our hearts. As many of my readers have already learned, the Holy Spirit has a supernatural way of communication, and when we find terms that are unusual, or even obscured by the Scriptures themselves (II Peter 2:9), experience teaches the discerning believer there is more going on than a casual read can apprehend.
Further, both terms are unique to the entire New Testament, as both “surfeiting” and “overcharged” only occur in this one verse, so here is where we’ll find more on the Snare.
“Overcharged” is baruno in the Greek Textus Receptus manuscripts, and the various lexicons indicate it means to be burdened, or to overdo something. The idea the word imparts is to be weighed down, or taken captive by something. Those who have followed our previous work in prophetic metaphor know that captivity (or being in bondage to something), is related to the Spirit of Hell that is found in religion, and more particularly, the False Prophet of Revelation 13. For more on the twin Spirits of Antichrist (aka Death) and the False Prophet (the aforementioned Spirit of Hell), see To Kill Or Take Captive at ChristianMediaResearch.com.
The word “surfeiting” is even more interesting. Typically, it is thought to be associated with excess, as in gluttony, or over imbibing in just about anything. The Greek word is kraipale, and it is found in Strong’s Greek Concordance as word #2897, where the famed concordance tells us it’s related to a seizure. Strong’s says it implies debauchery, but the real surprise is the fact the Greek word kraipale is derived from the root word harpadzo.
Those who have seriously studied prophecy know harpadzo is the Greek word from which we derive the English term Rapture!
Incredibly, here we have Jesus, warning us about a massive deception, described as a huge trap or Snare, which will have an association with religion, and this Snare will take people’s hearts captive through an overemphasis on something related to the Greek word for Rapture!
Further, this warning occurs in conjunction with Christ’s parable of the Fig Tree, which is easily discerned to be a veiled reference to Israel. Although those already deeply ensnared in the Rapture Cult will likely suggest this is a warning to be ready for the so called Rapture (in order to avoid being “left behind”), the entire passage is related to false prophets, representing themselves as proficient in Christian prophecy, who say “the time draweth near” (Luke 21:8). Thus, the bottom line is, it is undeniable the LORD plainly states such teachers are false prophets, and we are flatly told not to follow their pernicious doctrine.
“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ…and they shall say to you, See here; or see there: go not after them….wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold he is in the desert; go not forth: Behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not” (II Corinthians 11:13).
The fact that the New Testament directly addresses those who preach a secret coming of Christ, as in the above verse, speaks volumes, for the LORD clearly taught that His return will be global, all the tribes of the earth shall mourn when it occurs, and every eye shall see Him. The association of the Snare as part of the Fig Tree parable, as exegeted in Part I of Beware The Snare, directly links the widely disseminated idea of the Cult that kidnapped Christianity that God is about to “rapture” the so called “Church,” with the claim “the time draweth near,” because the Jews are now back in the Middle East, and they are in possession of Jerusalem.
At the risk of redundancy, I’ll repeat the prior thought. In our time, heaps of teachers (II Timothy 4:3) continue to assert that because the Jewish people are re-gathered into their ancient homeland, “the time draweth near” (Luke 21:8). Such continually echo the Pharisee’s claim that the Jews are the seed of Abraham – the chosen people – and our fate as believers is dependent on how we treat them. This was a lie when the Pharisees made the claim, and it’s the same lie being propagated in our time:
“They answered and said unto him, [we are chosen because] Abraham is our father…we have one Father, even God. Jesus saith unto them, if God were your Father, ye would love me…Ye are of your father the devil….” (John 8:39, 41, 42, 44).
The truth is, most “believers” in this evil and adulterous generation were “born again” into another gospel (Galatians 1:6) in the first place, and the prophesied Snare has already snapped shut on the entire world. The Rapture Cult is the spiritual seed that was planted, and it was a tare which has flowered in our time as the Jewish Supremacism we see everywhere. As the tentacles of the Antichrist religion which it delivered have now encircled the entire globe, what passes for Christianity today is but a dim counterfeit of the original.
It is a rare person professing Christ that understands the genuine Gospel of Jesus Christ has already redeemed Israel, and the flesh and blood people who are represented as Jewish and “chosen,” are not Jews at all, but a flesh and blood people who are inhabited by the Spirit of Antichrist (Revelation 3:9).
The only Israel that is redeemed is a Spiritual body (I Peter 2:5), and the mingling of the genuine Gospel with Old Covenant precepts, wherein a flesh and blood family (I Corinthians 15:50) was chosen by the LORD to inherit the kingdom, is the Snare which has already “come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth” (Luke 21:35).

This essay looks at the prophetic outline of events scheduled to occur at the end of the age, and how a great deception, herein identified as the Snare, is described in the Scriptures. For a lengthy treatment of the subject, see the James Lloyd book THE SNARE.
God has revealed the New Testament Gospel has been steadily leavened, and true discernment in the realm of the Spirit, which is the place where our lives in Christ continue after our physical existence comes to an end, is regularly addressed on the James Lloyd radio broadcast The Apocalypse Chronicles. Timely installments of the program may be played on demand at CHRISTIANMEDIADAILY.COM.
The Communique E-letter is periodically sent out to various Internet groups, and email lists on a sample basis, however, only those signed up for our Internet Forums will receive each important issue. We show you as requesting this information, but if we are mistaken, and you no longer wish to receive our materials, see the bottom of this page.
To be sure you regularly receive the Communique, simply send an email to James@ChristianMediaNetwork.com and put the word YES! in the subject line. You only need to do this once, so if you have already responded, we will continue to send you this Internet publication.
Christian Media also publishes more exhaustive writings than the Communique, with multiple periodicals covering Prophecy, the Patriot movement, Alternative Health, and even a tabloid newspaper. Sample issues are available on a complimentary basis by requesting them via the email link below. These publications include the Christian Media CURRENTS, The Apocalypse Chronicles, and the aforementioned newspaper Christian Media. In addition, we publish Streamwars, a newsletter documenting the march of the nations to a one world government.
The Fall 2014 issue of the Apocalypse Chronicles newsletter (in print, not online) featured a look into the prophetic metaphor found in the trumpet judgments of revelation. Entitled Hail and Fire, it is breakthrough material. The August 2014 issue of the Christian Media CURRENTS features a look at The Collective, and details how the consensus of belief which is created by the Dialectic process creates a supernaturally derived collective, consisting of those who dwell on the earth, who are driven by flesh and blood, and conformed to the Spirit of Death seen in Antichrist.
Meanwhile, the July 2014 issue of the print periodical Streamwars provideds political predictions of what will occur after Obama, based upon the prophetic pattern of how the sequential kingdoms all manifest a backlash from the particulars of the preceding era. Entitled The Pendulum Swings Into The Pit, we see through a glass darkly the post-American world order. A recent edition of our tabloid newspaper (Christian Media, published irregularly), featured Maddening Wine, an exposition on how the Spiritual power of Babylon has driven the nations mad.
In addition to the above periodicals, we also publish The Eclipse, which analyzes the exotic aspects of this world. For example, the Spring 2014 issue of The Eclipse has an examination of how the multitude of false prophets have practically identical teachings on the subject of the Nephilim – and pointedly probes the truth of the subject from a Remnant perspective.
Last but not least, the February 2014 edition of the Sound Body periodical is all about Waging War On Aging, and how science is beginning to understand how cells can be stimulated to re-grow, through a miraculous systemic cycle called methylation. This naturally occurring bio-chemical process can be encouraged to return people to abundant health. Complimentary copies of each of these printed publications are available by sending your name and postal mailing address to email@example.com with a note mentioning your primary area of interest.
Each of the Christian Media produced publications also have a radio and television presence. For example, The Apocalypse Chronicles (prophecy) outreach also has a weekly TV show uploaded on the Internet as well as a daily radio show. The TV show is at CMRI.tv and the radio show is at ChristianMediaNetwork.com. Sound Body has a weekly TV show at SoundBody.tv and a daily radio show at ChristianMediaNetwork.com, and the political entity, Streamwars, has a TV show posted at Streamwars.com.
The exotic material published in The Eclipse is also addressed in a Radio and a TV show called Exotica, both of which are aired at VChannel.us. A weekly TV news show is found at ChristianMediaDaily.com with a radio version airing regularly at ChristianMediaNetwork.com and GEOmedianetwork.com. By the way, all of the 3 radio network streams (Christian Media, GEO, and the V Channel) now have web links for iPads and Smartphones at GEOtelevision.net.
Still on the radio front, Christian Media has recently undertaken to post some of our radio shows, for download on demand. The network’s flagship program, The Apocalypse Chronicles, is now being posted at ChristianMediaDaily.com. Although James usually does 3 shows per week (on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays), one of those shows is now being posted at CMD each week.
Similarly, one of the new CMN produced radio shows, Another Gospel, which features the teachings of the False Prophets in their own words, followed by a Scriptural refutation, is now being posted weekly at ChristianMediaResearch.com.
ChristianMediaResearch.com has over 350 prophecy articles online, so the doctrinal reproof heard on Another Gospel is also found in essays on the same site. There are additional ministries aligned with Christian Media which are not enumerated here.
In the perilous times in which we live, God has blessed us enormously, and we invite you to walk along beside us. Further, there are many opportunities for volunteerism in this ministry, and we encourage any and all to become involved in whatever arena you are able. Unlike conventional Para-church movements, there is no central congregation, or structure to this ministry -- only the Patriarchal model found in Scripture. Don’t be deceived that you can just go along for the ride, as the Scriptures describe us as overcomers, not observers. To volunteer, send your name, address, and email to James@ChristianMediaNetwork.com and tell us about yourself.
