Through the knowledge of God’s Word and His prophecies, by the unfurling of the God-given signs of Christ’s Return, which we chronicle in detail on this site, it now seems that the appearance of the Antichrist on the world stage (or, at least the foundational global kingdom upon which his ruling power will be based) will likely precede The Rapture. Therefore, we are compelled to teach about the advent of the Antichrist and this march toward globalization of economy and nations into a world kingdom of oppostiion to God in heaven. We try to be vigilant, try to expose the powers at work that lure and seduce us into any of the antichrist webs of spiritual deceit and thereby kill our zest and hope for life and happiness.
We wish to help in every way, those who believe in the Rapture. If you find that your faith or interest is centered in the Rapture and its call to brideship, as ours is, we hope you will join us in Fellowship Hall (on this webstie), and that you will make your questions known and your requests for prayer and communion with us (even if only elctronically) a part of your spiritual life. All of our visitors and browsers are welcome to E-mail us with any and all questions or inquiries concerning our faith and the high calling that is in Christ Jesus. If you wish to further inquire about entering into fellowship with our site (which is a more personal relationship with us) which would include access to Fellowship Hall, its messages, discussions and interactive ministering (including prayers, praise, and submission of faith material of your own) and any technology now available or available in the future, that makes a lively fellowship possible, this is available to all those who have a notion or a certainty that they share the same faith as we of The Open Door Fellowship at ThePhiladelphiaFaith.org.
The appearance of Antichrist and Christ at the end times run concurrent, though it remains uncertain as to who shall appear first, Christ in the clouds to Rapture the faithful Bride, or Antichrist to drag the unbelieving world into a quagmire of despair and finally to a horrific doom. It is precisely for this reason that we have divided our site into two distinct sides, Antichrist and Bride side. Smack dab in the middle of these two opposing forces stands the our detailed accounts of the Signs of Christ’s Return as they have cascaded down through the two thousand years of this epic age between the first and second comings of Christ. The Signs of Christ's Return are critical because they are an undeniable compass of truths that point directly to the end of this age and Christ's Return. One side of our site speaks of the Rapture and teaches on the ultimate Christian goal: Brideship. The other side warns us of the Antichrist, teaching us how to identify it, flee from any lingering attachments to it, and to take seriously the mortal threat it continually presents to persons of faith in Jesus Christ. Because of this we are intensely and wholly dedicated to the maturity and perfection of all born-again Christians. Particularly, we urge those who are waiting patiently for, and preparing themselves spiritually, in anticipation of the return of Jesus Christ in the clouds. We urge all who might hear the call to the concept of brideship to “take heed to themselves”, “watch!”, and to "take care and see that they be not deceived”.
In these troubled, unstable days it is obvious that the entire world is at an historic crossroad. Every continent, including ours, suffers war, rebellion and/or commotions. Nature is taking more than its usual toll on man. The economy has cracks and fissures in it like the earthquakes that seem to hit haphazardly, but regularly, in all parts of the globe. At the risk of sounding overly dramatic, the end of this age is fast approaching, the ancient Antichrist Kingdom is quickly coming to its ultimate form and power. Among the material on the website is a presentation of world history following the evolution of the antichrist spirit and kingdom by way of biblical prophecy. In it we chronicle the Rise and Fall of the Antichrist Kingdom and its sister, Mystery Babylon/Religion from its roots in the ancient world up to the present moment in what is titled: "The Redemption Play". We also offer a full profile of the Antichrist which has been sifted out from infamous antichrist archetypes down through prophetic history. We hope this will help to give us more than just an inkling of who and what the approaching Evil One will be like. To multitudes of honest Christians everywhere, the time of Christ’s appearing and the Rapture seems sure that it will fall upon this generation. As for the increasing darkness and evil of the times? Who can deny that evil and the perils of life are on an astronomical rise, especially since the two World Wars of the last century?
It is only right to conclude that Christians stand at a crossroad of the greatest significance. The World holds on to its own. Christ beckons. The Antichrist and his kingdom summons all flesh to his side, promises health and happiness and equity for all. Christ and the Spirit are calling the Bride to life, safety and eternal glory. To whom shall we turn? Which fork will we take? Check out and study this website and find out which path you are on if you don't already know. If you know, let this site confirm your direction that you may make corrections if need be. The direction we ultimately choose will make all the difference, will determine one's fate. What path am I on - that dusty, crumbling road of sand constantly shifting beneath our feet? or am I on that airy golden causeway ascending like a mountain road to Rapture? Be sure, most will choose the broad way. Do not follow the crowd, this is the suggestion of this site. Only a relative few will take the high way. Can you identify which fork you’ve taken, which of the two roads you travelled on this very day? If you are frightened, downcast and uncertain where you are headed you should take it as an indication that you are on a dead-end road to a dismal destination? This website can give you a clear and definitive answer to what road you are traversing and why. We are a sign post offering a better route, the best route. We are a navigational tool giving us the most direct route to the best destination transmitted to us from the satellite from heaven's gate. It can show you how to avoid traversing the dangerous path of this world, and help you to travel briskly on the path to eternal union with God. This is the path taken by the Bride.
This website is designed to show the nature of the two paths, the seduction of one, and the invitation of the other. It can inform as to what God asks of a person, what is required by faith, what the ramifications will be for living in the World, what the blessings are for walking and even now abiding with Christ in the spirit. This site expounds in detail on what it takes to be the Bride of Christ, and makes clear the cost exacted by Truth's necessity. Either road, world or heaven, has a cost, exacts a price, takes its toll. Obviously, no one can take both roads at the same time. It is one or the other. We must choose. If we pay the price to ascend to heaven's gate in the moment of the Rapture by giving our all to Jesus, He will return everything that is good and beautiful to us in kind; for He shall give us ‘everything’ that is lasting, sweet and good. If we give Him nothing, insist on taking the dirt path as our own guide, then we can be sure we shall receive from Him the very same - nothing. If we walk that worldly well trammeled road it will cost us everything and we will end up with nothing, without life itself lost for ever on the lonely dark road of dead end despair.
Jesus reassured the faithful when He said, “Fear not little flock for it is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” The Bride will be separated, purified and prepared to meet Jesus. The Bride waits with justified anticipation to receive her inheritance of 'all things'. There is a church which will be “holy, without spot or wrinkle, or blemish or any such thing.” This does not suggest the whole church, but a church. The Bride is not a gender thing for she includes all races, genders and ages who have chosen Christ over the world. This is the Bride. Come and find out for yourself about the Bride. You can study about it at this website and meet people who are walking on the same adventurous path of faith. Rather than being filled with selfish disregard, travelling that rocky dirt path of this passing world which we formerly trod, we strive to walk simply and honestly with God. We wish to be filled with the Spirit and travel straight along the eternal golden road of life and liberty under the spirit's guidance, while endeavoring to steer clear of all vain religious trappings and subtle antichrist overtures to seduce us away from our objective. We invite one and all to take up their place along this road of glory, to seize hold of life. We are challenged to make this website and all that is reported herein so that it will be a boon to your spirit and life along your adventure toward glory.
