A Thief in the Night (4 part film series)
Mustard Seed Film Production ^ | 1972 | Donald W. Thompson

Posted on 03/24/2019 7:19:14 PM PDT by patriot torch

A Thief In The Night is the first in a four part series of a Biblical Prophecy Evangelical production. The central focus of the series is the difficulties faced when the main characters of the film wake up to find that they've missed out on the rapture and find themselves left behind. The world then implements the mark of the beast prophesied in Rev: chapter 13. Perhaps you've never been told of this in church. If you've always been curious of the rapture and the great tribulation, I highly recommend this series.

A Thief in the Night part 1

A Distant Thunder part 2

Image of the Beast part 3

The Prodigal Planet part 4

While this is not a high budget film series, it is well worth watching and is said to have been viewed through the years over 300 million times.

Can’t say as I’ve ever heard of the movie Risky Business.

These events will follow a prophesied seven year peace treaty signed between Israel and the antichrist.

These prophecies are stated in various Scriptures and can be found in:

Daniel 9:24-27

24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

For those who are unfamiliar with Bible Prophecy, the signing of this 7yr peace treaty, will trigger the events known as the rapture, and will ultimately lead to the prophesied mark of the beast:

Revelation 13:15-18

15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

At the end of this seven years will come the battle of Armageddon to Israel consisting of 200 million soldiers:

Revelation 9:16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.

The Battle of Armageddon will end with the return of Jesus Christ and His Church returning back to Earth where He will then be recognized by Israel as their Messiah.

Then Jesus will set up His headquarters in the New Jerusalem. At that point the Kingdom Age of Jesus’ Millennial reign will then begin.

I wonder if a different link would work better. Try searching for “A thief in the night” on a different link to youtube. There was a period of time when it was constantly taken down every time it was posted on youtube so I bought the series.

If you’ve never seen it before it really does cause a person to look at Biblical Prophecy in an entirely different perspective. Especially given the nature of events unfolding in the Middle East.

I’ll run it on Pale Moon, since Opera and Chrome won’t cooperate. I get that occsasionally on YT, just bypass yjy browser for the video. But thanks for the advice.

As your viewing this Prophecy film, I just thought I would point out the fact that on Drudge right now, is an article dealing with legislation in Sweden over a cashless society.

I saw a Thief in the Night in church when I was a kid... Not sure exactly what year, but I turned 7 in 1972... I would have guessed more like 10 years old.

I remembered the title recently and went and found it on youtube and watched it. I was surprised that I remembered so much of the movie for being 40+ years ago! I don’t ever remember a time in my life I doubted in God or the bible, what I remembered of it that is, I read some of the old testament and all of the new as a kid, but I did not do much reading of the bible either until more recently... Since the internet, I got lazy and usually just searched “what does the bible say about ‘X’ “. I have not been a regular church goer either since I moved away for tech school after graduating high school, but we are looking for a good one to start going to now after going to church with my mom via the internet for a few months now, where his Sunday sermons are the bible study we need in our lives.

Organized religion as a whole is what I found that I have a problem with... From my point of view, the vast majority of them are leading people away from God and what the bible says... by telling their followers it does not really mean what it says. Exactly as this movie from 47 years ago showed.

Don’t take that wrong, I know there are many good churches out there, but it is my belief, they are the ones that focus on bible study and not preaching that virtually everybody will go to heaven if they just live a good life and don’t worry about what the bible actually teaches us, because we have evolved since that old book was written.

Thanks for posting, I will have to watch parts 2-4 some time when I have nothing to do, never knew they even existed.

I do not subscribe to the pretrib rapture, and believe in the resurrection of believers at the end of the great tribulation, but if you watch the Thief in the Night movie as depicting the scenario of believers going thru the tribulation then it is overall quite well done. The others pale in comparison to varying degrees.

But i think that the best of the lot of tribulation is "Years of the Beast ."

But if these are copyrighted, then is it not wrong to upload them to YouTube? and to watch them (even though I have watched them)?

Megiddo: The Omega Code 2 is a runner-up (which TBN used to let you download. .

Never did watch those, though I grew up during that era. Perhaps I'll download them. Like I have free time.

Much beloved former pastor (long before our time) in the church we were at for a long time, had a part in the first movie.

Yes, you and I see things very similar. Shortly after I became Born Again I attended a home fellowship Bible study. As I grew in the Word of God, I soon learned that due to persecution, the Apostle Paul also shared the good news from home to home. His biggest opposition were the religious sect.

When I first read Acts chapter 7, I recognized the spirit that stoned Stephen. In these last days of the Church Age that spirit is becoming worse.

1 John 4:2-4 King James Version (KJV)

2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

(BTW) I see that your a NASCAR fan. Any chance that Johnson can win one last title before retiring? I’m pretty impressed with this new crop of drivers. But I don’t think there’s any stopping Kyle Busch this year.

Yes I know there are differing views as to the rapture, I can appreciate your beliefs. I do believe that this world is soon to find out.

I like your forum name. Daniel 12:12

12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

I also can’t help but recall the words of Daniel in...

Daniel 12:4

4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

Over the past 2000 years, life was relatively the same until the last century when inventions really came to change modern life style. Especially in these last days and this current generation. Knowledge in all phases is growing fast. The times of the end are sure to come to pass soon.

As for the format on uploads on youtube, I’m not up to speed on that, although perhaps the rules allow it with a premium subscription. Big tech always seems to look the other way if there is more money in it for them.

Thanks for the suggestions, I’ll have to look them up. I love Prophecy films.

That’s pretty cool that your familiar with the Pastor in the film. In the four part series I purchased, it has some bonus features and includes one on one interviews with the cast. I found it quite interesting.

The link you posted speaks of the scene where the Pastor is speaking with Patty, and that is so true. I wish that discussion was more common today, but it seems to have been silenced.

How close must the times of the end be when it is just like the days of Noah?

Matthew 24:37-38

37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

To be clear, I never knew the man. The grey(er) heads all remembered him fondly.

It’s heating up in Israel again. Live barrages of rocket fire right now.

Keep an eye on Russia’s involvement. Ezekiel 38 buildup?

Ezekiel 38:3-5 King James Version (KJV)

3 And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:

I’ve seen the first two I believe - maybe parts of the others - saw the first one long, long ago, for sure

The world thinks “peace in the Middle East” will be a good thing. They have no idea it’s just the beginning of woes...
