Who Said That?

"Just a word of advice to certain people.

Maybe you don't want to accept Jesus Christ and would rather go the hard way [i.e., through the seven-year tribulation].  You'll have to find some means of surviving for seven years without depending on this corrupt society.  This society will be totally taken over by the Antichrist.  No one will be able to buy or sell except he has his mark.  If you take the mark, you are lost forever.

The best plan is probably to take off for the jungles of Mexico and learn how to live off the land.  Just do your best to survive down there.  I would suggest the remote areas of Oregon, but I don't know how you'd survive the winters."

You know the drill, leave your guess (please no cheating or google searches) in the comments section below. 

Can't wait to see editorial comments on this one!

HAHAHAAH!! That link to "prewrath rapture" cracked me up! :D

I have a second guess for the quote: Cheech Marin (read it with his "voice").

I don't know who said it although many of the above answers may very well be correct. No matter who said it I would recommend that they read Jesus' words in Matthew 24-25. Absolutely ridiculous.

I can't see Kirk Cameron saying that his main focus is evangelizing the lost using the law and Camp Firefly. Hagee, Lindsay are both strong contenders and oh let me not forget the ever colorful in his predictions Pat Robertson.
Covering my bases and picking one of those three.

To satisfy my own curiosity and impatience I made a vain attempt to Google while I still have no idea who said (I got distracted) I ended up with a better answer then the jungles of Mexico. Belize! and they even have a how to section!

Jack Van Impe?

Don't think it's Pat Robertson. He's posttrib, as I remember.

This reminds me of the end-of-the-world scare in the late 80's when the threat was massive global nuclear fallout. The plan then was to head to certain slopes of certain mountain ranges in South America (can't remember which). The westerly sea breezes were such that no significant fallout would contaminate the earth. Nevertheless, you had to plan on living of nothing but orange juice. (Kind of like the garden of eden).

Who said it? I have no idea but he's prolly some rich guy raking in the dough from the uneducated. I don't get why you'd advertise where everybody's going into hiding. I wonder if my social security checks would get forwarded to this jungle.

I don't see what the big deal is guys. Put up or shut up. Just wait till the Rupture CATCHES YOU ALL UNAWARES. If Paul were alive today he'd be building a cabin AND TEACHING OTHERS TO CATCH WILD BUFFALO. What do you think Moses was doing in the wilderness?

The Calvary Chapel's teach the first paragraph, as they learned it from the Southern Baptists (Dallas).

Most of the non-denominationalists also teach the first paragraph. (Which, athough they hate the term, is in their confessions.)

Dave Hunt. That's my guess. He does live in Oregon.

My guess is MacArthur...

David Jeremiah; O.K., so I'm unique but all the other contenders were taken. I heard him toe the premillennial rapturist party line and say some similar things but the jungle living suggestion is completely new to me. In all seriousness, this futurist, premillennial, dispensational body of doctrines is all very blinding and stupefying.

John MacArthur?

"Flight is not an option during the Great Tribulation" is funny and then sad, simultaneously. The entire message is predicated on futurism and dispensational premillennialism. Again, all rather unnecessary, blinding and stupefying as it is.
