A pastor has joined a growing number of Evangelical Christians in proclaiming mankind is suffering through the End of Days in a zombie apocalypse predicted by the Bible that is currently upon us.
In his book Zombie Apocalypse, Pastor Paul Begley notes 35 recent instances in which people have gone crazy and started eating other people like zombies in a Hollywood apocalypse movie.
"Superhuman strength, stripping down naked, some cases quoting scriptures, some cases having bibles, some cases saying that they are the Messiah. This is an actual manifestation of demonic spirits, and people what I'm talking about here, this is demon possession."
Begley notes a 2012 incident where a man went crazy after eating bath salts and attacked a homeless man, eating most of his face off, before being shot dead by police. In another story, a veteran policeman stripped off his clothes and charged into an apartment complex attacking another man before jumping out a two-story window. In Canada, police came upon a man sitting in the middle of the road eating a dog alive.
"This is an actual manifestation of demonic spirits in people…this is demon possession."Begley, an evangelical pastor, claims the zombie apocalypse was predicted in the Biblical book of John 5:28-29.
"Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and come out - those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned."He points to several stories where the Bible records Jesus casting demonic spirits out of people, saying the same hellish curse is affecting mankind now during the End of Days.
The book of Mark refers to a meeting between Jesus and what the Bible calls an unclean man with an unclean spirit; Begley says that describes demonic possession that today's Hollywood generation would picture as a zombie.
Then, Jesus meets a man named Legion who claims to be possessed by a number of demonic spirits; after a brief conversation Jesus sends the demons into a herd of pigs, which then run off a nearby cliff to their deaths.
These scripture readings recorded in the Bible describe demonic possession that Begley says is the same as the zombie apocalypse, and the pastor notes the crazy incidents happening all around us as proof the world is ending.Begley claims global warming, massive super storms, famine, and disease are all signs mankind is suffering through the End of Days on Earth and he's not the only Christian claiming the end of the world is upon us.
A survey conducted by the Daily Beast earlier this year notes 77 percent of Evangelical Christians believe we are going through the end times described in the biblical book of Revelations. That's compared to 40 percent of Americans and 51 percent of Protestants.
That means in any giant mega-church, three quarters of the people there think the world is ending.Christian media icon Glenn Beck agrees and said he hopes that despite recent setbacks, Americans can unite behind Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz who he believes was anointed by God to save the U.S. from Armageddon.
Pastor Begley says mankind is suffering through the End of Days and the zombie apocalypse is part of the plagues that will cause the end of the world, reports the Express.
"All hell will break loose on this planet just before the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, and I'm telling you it's already beginning."What do you think? Is the world suffering through the End of Days?
