    Do you think the internet will crash if Obama doesn't shut it down by over use by the masses. Is that possible? I don't know much about technology. When I think about it, maybe the use won't be as much as I think when millions of people that are gone won't be using it.

    I really want the people that are left behind to be able to obtain all the "What's next"? information that is online after the Rapture.

    When Hurricane Irene was coming up the East Coast I went out for D batteries (about 4 days before it was suppose to hit my area) and there was not any to be found! I was happy I already had some on hand, I was just adding extras to the stash. As I was looking at the empty shelves I started to think right then if this will be the case with Bibles soon after the Rapture. Will the people that heard the message but refuted it, now think "oh, maybe they were right" and run out to find a Bible and soon they will all be gone or will more people buy into a lie that the Pope or someone else is spreading around like wildfire.

    If the internet stays on, at least there are many Bibles online for those that want them and so much more information too.

    It is weird to think that after the Rapture this forum will be empty of posters. But what a wealth of information will remain. :-)

    Back to my main question, do you think Obama will turn the internet off for whatever reason?
    I didn't read all of the replies, so if I'm repeating what someone else has said, I apologize in advance.
    I do think that the Internet will be shut down and "purged" of it's content, and then later it will be "turned on" again and will only contain sites that are approved by the Antichrist & False Prophet and their minions.
    After the web is back on, I think that the Internet will be available to anyone to access, but all it's content will be tightly controlled (propaganda) by the AC, et al.
    I DON'T think that it will be Obama that does this. To think that BHO will have control over anything on a global scale after the Rapture and the rise of the AC, is giving him to much credit, IMHO.

    i suspect this may happen indeed.i have a scrapbook on the drives in 3 different computers with prophecy MP3's,videos,PDF flow charts and articles and so on and a letter explaining what happened.i encourage any Biblical Christian to do the same as i believe truth will be a rare commodity after the Rapture and satan is already preparing his lies.he indeed has a short time,especially when he is cast out of Heaven and falls to the earth.my scrapbook is 25 Gigs and growing.tons of stuff from Jack Kelly,Hal Lindsey,Paul Washer and others telling about the wrath of God which is falling upon the earth,salvation and Christian living,just tons of stuff and i have these copied to several computers.the Bible does seem to indicate a great bunch of people will be saved but a very high probability they will be killed for their faith,i pray they remain strong and boldly proclaim the Gospel under ANY circumstance,even if they will possibly die for it.

    i think after the Rapture that the internet might well be completely censored but it will have no effect whatsoever of the spreading of the Gospel.

    there will be 144,000 Jewish missionaries preaching along with an angel flying nonstop around the world proclaiming the "everlasting gospel". (Revelation 14:6)

    Yes, very soon after Egypt's government shut down the internet, news started coming out about the US introducing a bill that could be used to shut down the internet. The legislation, which would grant Obama or current president powers to seize control of and even shut down the internet. There hasnt been much news about it lately (at least not the sources I read) but it doesnt seem likely those for the bill would have just dropped it. Maybe they just ran into too much resistance over it and trying to come up with a more clever way to "sell it".

    It is a good thing non-believers are reading sites like this one. Faith comes through hearing and hearing through the word of God. Scripture is posted on here from time to time and often referenced.

    agreed it is going to be 20 lbs of ugly in a 5 lb box.obama is receiving way too much credit,even though he is so arrogant he thinks he has that much pull.i am so ashamed of obama that he is POTUS.i am hoping he will be long gone,after all we had to go through Carter to get Regan,perhaps our last real POTUS to date.

    Don't believe it will be President Obama but the OWG/Governments will be involved - Do believe that the Internet will be affected by the AC/OWG purging of Christ's Word - Do believe that the Word of God will be reachable by unbelievers via the Two Witnesses, Angels in the Heavens, Copious amounts of Bibles and other Christian media left behind.

    One reason I do the Bible handouts; and I have a case of New Testaments hiding in a closet.

    The internet will be completely purged as soon as possible. God forbid people learn the truth.

    However, if someone already has a Bible, they can read it.

    Good reason to hand them out now!

    I figure a very large proportion of "my" recipients - I'm just preloading them for after the Rapture. I do hope a few are getting saved now, but assume most of it's for later.

    We don't want to go through another election on this forum. I remember when I started a thread the last presidential election and we all talked about our election experiences as they happened. People would post right after they voted. We were watching for "cheating", listening to conversations, observing the poll people, we had it all covered..or so we thought!

    Oops sorry, I am wrong here. It WASN'T the Presidential election, it was in 2010! And we did succeed in overthrowing the House but not the Senate.

    Sometimes I wonder about me. I can't keep anything straight! I am always confused.

    Absolutely! Unsaved members or lurkers, I know we'd all like to see them come to the Lord before God's wrath pours out onto the Earth, though. It's not going to be easy after the Rapture.

    I think world war may be in its beginning stages just as the Rapture happens, there will be such confusion before hand that people will not be paying attention to who is missing but trying to figure out which enemy may come at them next. If some of their neighbors are missing, they could assume they were killed in some sort of terrorist/enemy attack or were taken in for "questioning" like the gestapo. The internet will be monitored the same as it is now, in quiet,but the copyright news laws will be worse,and they will be keeping an eye out for those who fit what they will term as terrorists(the one list on DHS had pretty labelled everyone as one according to their general terms). I think few people will actually know what is going on(or that many of us will be missing) and will be focusing on the war.

    I hope it's not shut down entirely. I'm sure that even if Christian websites are shut down, there will be many people who know people they knew on message boards and such were Christians and will want to look back and what they said. I know I have an "If I Disapear" message on either my profile or in a post on several message boards that I really hope people will be able to see after we're gone.

    Post The Law Will Be In Full Effect Again and Miracles Will Abound.

    God may very well create actual "CYBERSPACE"

    And even though the Government may try to shut it down, the World Wide Web and Christian web sites God may use His Power to actually allow the web to be a thorn in the side of the AC by actually having it exist where they can do nothing to remove, block, or shut down Christian Web Sites. It is a very possible outcome, since the Gospel will be proclaimed to the whole world and this may be one the ways. IMHO

    I was reading this thread and I always think the same thing...after just a month of us being gone, our electricity, water, etc will be kapoot from non payment. I'm all for them stealing my laptops, etc to take back to their houses if they have electricity. And they can have whatever else they want here...food, clothes..etc. All up for grabs at my place. I've been considering putting a sign on my door that says 'In case of Rapture, help yourself!' Let's just hope our Good Lord takes my Labrador Ret and Pit Mix with me, otherwise they won't get too far.

    The Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee unanimously approved the Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act of 2010 (S. 3480). It now moves to the Senate floor for a full vote.
    The bill is an over-arching cyber-security measure, which would, among other things, create an office of cyberspace policy within the White House, which would be led by a Senate-appointed director. It would also create a new center within the Homeland Security Department, which would implement cyber-security policies.
    A provision that got the most attention, however, was one that gave the president the power to "authorize emergency measures to protect the nation's most critical infrastructure if a cyber vulnerability is being exploited or is about to be exploited.

    http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2365709,00.asp This is from June2010

    Here is the full info from the Library of Congress (current and up to date)

    http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d111:S3480:

    Hasn't been passed yet - but I somehow don't doubt it will be.

    According to the vague way in which it is written (like so many of our more recent laws) "a credible threat" can be anything the administration/DHS decides to call a threat.

    After all, according to DHS if you are white, have quoted end-time references from the Bible, are a Christian and like to pay for things in cash - you my friend are a "terrorist"

    If you go to the DHS website, click on Cyber Security you find this: http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/defa...ersecurity.pdf - which details what is now in place and what the scope of powers are currently. Again, a lot of wiggle room if deemed necessary.

    For those who say no way obama plays a major part in prophecy if not being the actual AC, be careful. I can lay out a pretty convincing case that he may just be, but that is a post and discussion for another place and time. My point is we all need to be alert, eyes wide open, ready at a moments notice. The signs are everywhere. And a fair number of my associates are thinking just as I opened this post.

    Here in the Gold Country of California, we watch for the oak trees to begin dropping acorns. A sure sign that Winter is just around the corner. For the past 22 years here, this event has never failed to tell how Winter arrives in timing and intensity. Lots of acorns means harsh Winter. Just today I was commenting to my wife that the acorns are dropping with increasing frequency. And this is one of the earliest drops we have seen, and so we make plans for an expected early arrival of cold weather, rain, and snow.

    So have you see the signs all around us? Can you hear the whispers on the wind? Do you have that feeling that we are SO CLOSE to being with our Heavenly Father God and his Son Jesus Christ? I do, and I believe everything we are seeing will very soon be fully understood. We can look back and say, So THAT's what that meant..................

    Maybe so but it wont be a biblical case, based on what the bible says about the AC
    For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1 Cor 1:18

    No, I can lay out a case for this following EXACTLY what the bible says. Just takes connecting the dots and some prayerful understanding. Some things you have to search for. It's all there in the scriptures. "To him that has an ear, let him hear."
