The Fear of the Lord Has Been Lost (compilation)

Whatever happened to the other half of the Gospel that brings balance to the true salvation message?

Recently a reader sent me a well-meaning rebuke on how he found my consistent attack on false teachings to be “lacking in grace and love (and driven by the Law and commandments).” I did my best to reply in a manner that explained the deep burden I carry as a teacher who is called to carry a prophetic message of, not only the Coming wrath upon the Wicked, but also the coming Judgment upon a back-slid Christianity that is heading for a serious period of purging and sifting before the Return of our Lord for his Bride.

As I was spending the morning in prayer (and in consideration of his exhortation) the following compilation video from Sermonindex.net came up in my Que. Let me just say this video hit me like a brisk breeze to the cloth of a sail-boat! I wonder if brother Fred would consider these great men of God to be also lacking in grace and love, and find them likewise a bit too ‘legalistic’?

 

If you have never checked out Sermonindex you are missing out on a great resource that makes available to you the preaching of great men of God like Zac Poonen, Leonard Ravenhill, A.W. Tozar, David Wilkenson, Keith Daniel, Carter Conlon, Paris Reidhead, etc. etc. etc..  The preaching of these folks will bring to you the TRUE Gospel, not the convoluted mess that is being vomited forth from most pulpits in this day.

And PLEASE pray for me in my new venture into teaching videos. I would like to see my efforts express a bit more polish (and effectiveness) than I have been able to produce thus far. But I am confident the Lord is leading and will grant increase.

Blessings upon all who love our Christ;

The ‘Imminent Rapture’ Teaching: Bible or Bogus? Paul Benson Video

Is this claim that the Rapture could happen any moment to be trusted as ‘Bible Truth’?

Let’s take a look at the popular claim that the the Coming of Christ to catch-away the Saints is an event that could transpire at any moment. Is that doctrine of ‘Imminent Return’ a true teaching of the Bible?

Although MANY deceived individuals are promoting this notion, a thorough look at the Scriptures shows this claim to be just one more facet of Pre-trib theory that is provably false!

 

Stolen Snippets and the Pre-trib Rapture! Paul Benson video

the pre-trib rapture doctrine

Hi folks!

How many times have you heard phraseology like ‘in the twinkling of an eye’ or ‘like a thief in the night’ or ‘of that day and hour no man knows’ used to convey the idea that the Church will not be on earth to face Antichrist and his war on the Saints? That Christians will NOT go thru the time of tribulation prophesied to unfold in the final years of this age? Where, oh where, did the pre-trib crowd find all these cool catch-phrases to spruce up their teachings? Continue reading “Stolen Snippets and the Pre-trib Rapture! Paul Benson video”

Eschatological Accountability (Paul Benson video)

Are you bringing condemnation upon yourself by teaching things about the end-times that the Bible does not? There WILL be consequences!

The pre-tribulation rapture hoax exposed

Well folks, as promised here is the first of the video series I will (Lord willing) be producing. It’s been quite a process to get to this point. But I have a strong witness this is the direction the Lord is leading, and will hopefully be uploading teachings on a consistent basis.

The Day Jesus Returns – Robert Adams Video

I have been watching the extensive video series by bro. Robert Adams with a great sense of accord. I don’t know where he is at on all matters of Christian doctrine, but he approaches eschatology without preconception or denominational/theological prejudice. I always admire someone who emphasizes clearly stated Bible truths and minimizes personal opinions and speculations.  I think anyone would find much edification, and also much food for thought, in examining his video presentations.

He is another former Pre-tribber who got set free (years ago) from that delusion by embracing the truths of God’s Word over and above the teachings of man. In this video he doesn’t do much teaching; he is merely reading the many scripture passages that deal with the day of Christ’s Return. I got some additional insights just listening to him read these passages! Maybe you will too.

 

 

P. S. I’ve been devoting much time and effort to the task of moving into audio and video teaching. Things are coming together and I should have some stuff posted soon. Again, please pray for me. This endeavor has me stretched waaaaaaaay out of my comfort zone and most certainly beyond my technical abilities. But it is looking like progress. P.B.

Why I Don’t Accept The ‘Pre-wrath Rapture’ View

Is the ‘Pre-wrath Rapture’ view the correct solution to the end-time prophecy puzzle? Well… not exactly!

 

by Paul Benson

Recently a reader sent me an e-mail asking my thoughts on the ‘Pre-wrath Rapture’ view and sent me also a link to an article by Alan Kurschner who holds to the Pre-wrath view. His article was titled ‘Still waiting for a Post-tribber to respond to Prewrath eschatology… Crickets!’. You can find that article HERE.

I will in this writing give the reasons I firmly believe the Pre-wrath position to be (in certain key areas) an incorrect assessment of the events surrounding the Return of our Lord. Continue reading “Why I Don’t Accept The ‘Pre-wrath Rapture’ View”

The End Is Not Yet! – Jacob Prasch Video

I found the rebuke of the Pre-trib Rapture doctrine in this video by brother Prasch to be quite sound. Though I could point out a couple areas where I think he has still to work his eschatology ahead a bit (as do we ALL!) the points I disagree with him on are not that significant. The previous video in this series was also an excellent talk on the origin and preservation of sound doctrine. You can find that video HERE.

 

PRAYER REQUEST: I am working towards the goal of producing teachings on the topics the Lord has called me to focus upon in video and audio format. The learning curve involved is huge make that: HUGE! and I have allowed this to hinder me from moving ahead for much too long. (Also feeling I have a face made for radio and a voice fit for penmanship hasn’t helped any either!)  But, although the Lord is patient and understanding in working out his will in our loves, there comes a point where it is high time to quite dragging your feet, get over your insecurities, and get on with getting on.

SO….. Here I go! And I would really appreciate the prayers of those who follow my blog. I know that intercession truly makes a difference. And your prayers would mean a great deal to me. So thank you in advance. I will try to post something soon, but it may take a bit longer to get equipment, editing, publishing etc. figured out to that point.

Blessings to all who love His Truth;

God’s Calendar: Seeing Jesus in the Passover and other Feasts of the Lord – Amir Tsarfati Video

Does your expectation of Christ’s return for the Church line up with the biblical pattern shown forth by the prophetic Feasts of the Lord?

passover

This is one of the best videos I have found on the prophetic Feasts of the Lord. He brings out the clear truth that the Feasts which the Jews were commanded to observe were given to present a prophetic picture of the 1st and also the 2nd Coming of our Lord.

 

One thing I really appreciated in this teaching by brother Amir is that he stays away from the misconceptions so popular among the pre-trib crowd that the ‘rapture trumpet’ takes place at the beginning of the fall feasts (the Day of Trumpets they incorrectly say) and thus the Church is absent from the tribulation typified by the remaining days until Yom Kippur (Atonement) which typifies the Second Coming.

He brings out that the fall Feasts involve a series of trumpets not just on the first day. This is significant because the pre-trib teachers say that when the trumpet sounds to begin the fall feasts this typifies the rapture happening before the tribulation and the Church as entering our eternal ‘Jubilee’ at that time. But as Amir teaches (and I also believe) the series of trumpet blasts continues through out the 10 ‘days of awe’ and finishes with the Last Trump on the Day of Atonement. Something pre-trib teachers miss (or willingly ignore) is that the year of Jubilee does not begin on the first day of ‘trumpets’; it only begins AFTER the last long trumpet blast on the Day of Atonement! According to the biblical pattern of the Feasts of the Lord the Church will begin our eternal Jubilee at the Second Coming! Let’s get it right!

And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. 9  Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. Leviticus 25:8-9

Question: Why do the pre-trib teachers place the blowing of the ‘last trump’ (ie. the resurrection/rapture) on the first day of the month instead of the tenth day where it belongs (the Day of Atonement which typifies the Second Coming)?

Answer: Because they must depart from the biblical pattern or it would expose the error of their doctrine!

I hope the reality of the foretelling of the 2 Comings of Jesus to Earth found in the Feasts of the Lord are as much a blessing and edification to you as they are to me. God revealed these truths to me by his Spirit quickening various O.T. passages in the Word to me long before I had been exposed to any significant teaching on the issue. It was a very exciting time of study and worship for me to say the least! I have an article on that HERE if you would like to read it.

Blessings to all who long for his Coming;

The Church WILL face Antichrist! – Walter Martin Teaching

For 20 centuries the Church has believed and taught we will face Antichrist BEFORE Jesus returns for us. Only in modern times has a segment of the Body of Christ turned aside from that belief!

Hi folks;

I would like to share a teaching with you by brother Walter Martin where he strongly rebukes the Pre-tribulation Rapture Doctrine and exposes it for the unbiblical hoax it really is. Brother Martin truly had a knack for getting the plain and simple truths of the Scriptures across in a way that sets aside the convoluted mess the wisdom of man has man out of end-time matters.

In his lifetime he also spoke fervently against the many other falsehoods plaguing the modern Church such as the Word of Faith teachings of K. Copeland (and associated ministries) while at the same time properly teaching that Gifts of the Holy Spirit are still in operation in this age. He is also the only one I know of that went on TBN and rebuked false teachings being promoted there. (You can find a video of that show HERE.)

 

 

ADDITIONAL RESOURCE:

If the Apostle Paul and others had believed and taught the Church would escape the coming time of tribulation, and the intense persecution of those days, the writings of the Christian authors throughout the centuries since would be literally riddled with reference to that concept. It would be a MAJOR topic of discussion! But, it is absolutely NOT evident in their teachings and commentaries other than a mere handful of obscure mentions some try to point to as ‘proof’ which actually do not distinctly promote that idea! They even try to use (or should I say misuse) an unclear quote from Ireneaus who taught quite clearly elsewhere that he firmly believed the Church would see Antichrist!

QUESTION: Why do all the articles that claim to show proof the early Church believed in a pre-trib rapture quote the same mere handful of unclear quotes like they had all been copy and pasted from the same article?????????

ANSWER: Because that’s all the material they have to work with! They all claim there are a myriad of pre-trib quotes in the writings of the ‘early fathers’; but strangely no one seems to know where they are!

Here us a link to a page on my site that gives scores of quotes from Christian theologians down through the ages showing that the Body of Christ has ALWAYS believed and taught the Church will be here to face Antichrist and his war on the Saints:
