Jerusalem in the End-times – David Pawson

What lays ahead for Jerusalem is a far cry from what many are teaching!

jerusalem-331370_640

In my writings dealing with the many falsehoods surrounding the pre-trib rapture teaching I have many times pointed out the error of the claim the coming time of tribulation is ALL about God dealing with Israel. It’s the time of Jacob’s trouble! they claim, and: The Church has no part of the events of that time!

And as I have repeatedly shown, a thorough examine of the prophecies dealing with the last days shows that: as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth (Luke 21:35); and that the entire world will be called to repentance in that day – including the Church!

But, to maintain a proper balance and biblical perspective of end-time matters, we must not lose sight of the significant and earth-shattering events that WILL transpire in the middle east (and in Jerusalem in particular) in that day. In the following video brother David Pawson gives a talk that boldly challenges the misconceptions many have about what lays ahead for the nation of Israel. I really admire the way he addresses many topics the weak-hearted and weak-kneed refuse to preach on. Let me know what you think of the message.

John Haller’s Prophecy Update

Hi Folks! As a teacher with somewhat of a narrowed focus of ministry I realize my readers need much more than a steady diet of my rebuke and correction of the many errors that plague the modern believer. I would like to recommend to you someone I feel really has his finger on the pulse of world events and how they relate to biblical prophecy being fulfilled in our lifetime.

His name is John Haller and he has a weekly video presentation I have been following for quite some time now. I think you would truly be benefited by what he has to say. Here is where you can find his work:

Here is his latest ‘update’ on Youtube. Check it out, be encouraged, and get informed! P.B.

The Sifting Process – David Wilkerson

wilkerson

Hello brothers and sisters in Christ. Last week I wrote about the coming purge of Christianity that will precede the Return of our Lord. Here is a great message by David Wilkerson that discusses this process of purification on an individual level.

I have stated many times I feel the greatest preparation one can do for what lies ahead is to get rid of whatever might be keeping you out of God’s favor and his perfect will for your life, and to immerse yourself in his Holy Word. To those who are compromised and defiled with the things of this world the days ahead are going to be a horrible time of purging. Continue reading “The Sifting Process – David Wilkerson”

The Biblical Timing of the Rapture part 4: The Coming Purge of Apostate Christianity!

Does the Bible clearly give us a reason for the Church going through the time of tribulation prophesied to occur prior to the Coming of Christ to catch-away his faithful? Yes, it absolutely does!

The Pre-trib Rapture

by Paul Benson

(This is part 4 of a series on the biblical timing of the catching-away of the believers to meet Christ. You can find part 1 HERE.)

Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. Revelation 19:7

Though many insist God’s dealings with his people during the final years of ‘tribulation’ only concern the Jews, and that there is no reason for the Church to endure those chaotic times, the Scriptures paint a completely different picture. Let’s see what the Bible has to say about this matter. Continue reading “The Biblical Timing of the Rapture part 4: The Coming Purge of Apostate Christianity!”

Christ Magnified in Our Bodies – Leonard Ravenhill

Does the world truly see Jesus in you or I? If not they should!

From time to time I like to revisit the sermons of great men of God who knew the ‘old paths’ and not the compromised and convoluted message we are hearing from most of today’s preachers and teachers.

If you are not getting fed and challenged by the preaching and teaching you are getting from your fellowship attendance (or lack thereof), do yourself a favor and seek out the preaching of those whose will do so. Feed your spirit-man. Don’t let him starve!

Truth is timeless. And a message that is truly anointed is just as anointed today as it was the day it was preached. Here is a sermon by Leonard Ravenhill that I believe exemplifies the true Gospel message. The video quality is not the greatest but the preaching sure is! Enjoy.

 

The Biblical Timing of The Rapture PART III: The Harvest and The Mystery!

Does the Bible present a clear and concise picture as to the timing of the catching-away of the believers to meet Christ at the end of days? I believe it absolutely does!

The Pre-trib Rapture

by Paul Benson

(This is part 3 of a series on the timing the Bible gives concerning the catching-away of the Church. You can find part 1 HERE. P.B.)

Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. James – an apostle of Christ

The Bible teaches the day of Christ’s Coming is the day of Harvest the Lord has been patiently waiting for.  In the Scriptures we see this recurrent allegoric theme presented in the sense of this world being like a field in which the Lord is growing a crop of which he will someday harvest. We see that allegorical reference in the passage above by James, as well as in the writings of Paul.

For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building. 1Corinthians 3:9

And we most certainly see this same comparison used in the words of our Lord Jesus Christ himself in his teachings that are recorded in the Gospels. Let’s look at what the Scriptures have to say about the growing and harvesting of God’s ‘crop’, and see what kind of timing we might find associated with Jesus gathering this crop unto himself.

The Biblical Timing Of The Rapture PART II: The Resurrection Chapter!

Does the Bible present a clear and concise picture as to the timing of the catching-away of the believers to meet Christ at the end of days? I believe it absolutely does!

The Pre-trib Rapture

by Paul Benson

(This is part 2 of a series on the timing of the catching-away of the Church to meet Jesus. You can find part 1 HERE.)

For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth. Psalms 33:4

All who claim to be Christians operate under the assumption that the various facets of their belief system come from the teachings of the Bible. We all claim to be ‘Bible-believers’! But I like to ask people the following:

Are you basing your beliefs upon what the Bible actually says, or upon what man says about the Bible?

The former is trustworthy; the latter is a good way to get full of erroneous notions about God and his dealings with us. This holds true to the question of the timing of the catching-away of the Church to meet Christ in the latter days. We can either base our beliefs about the Return of Christ and the catching-away of the Church on what the Bible really has to say, or upon what some man says the Bible teaches on this timing issue.

As we saw in the last article that timing is clearly shown in many passages of Scripture. Let’s look at some more places we see that timing expressed. Continue reading “The Biblical Timing Of The Rapture PART II: The Resurrection Chapter!”

The Biblical Timing Of The Rapture! PART I

Does the Bible present a clear and concise picture as to the timing of the catching-away of the believers to meet Christ at the end of days? I believe it absolutely does!

 

The Pre-trib Rapture

by Paul Benson

For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: 21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself. Philippians 3:20-21

In this modern generation much unneeded squabbling is taking place among the people of God over a question unmistakably answered in the Scriptures: The timing of the catching-away of the Church to meet Christ in the air.

For over 18 centuries the leaders and teachers of the Church were of a like-mind that the Resurrection of the Dead, and the joining of Christ to his Church, will take place at his Second Coming to Earth! And that prior to that blessed hope of the Resurrection at the Last Day the believers will face the onslaught of Antichrist’s war on the Saints. This is an undeniable historic fact!

Though world-wide this remains the majority position, regrettably in this day there are a great many who, having allowed themselves to be swayed by the wayward theories of man, have departed from the historical belief of the catching-away at the Second Coming, and have turned aside to embrace teachings that are merely fables.

Because the Western Church has let down its guard, and allowed itself to be inundated with unbiblical teachings that ‘turn from the truth’, there is now a divisive doctrine among us that the Church will escape the trials, tribulations, and persecutions of the final years in a ‘pre-trib’ rapture.

But though a multitude are stubbornly claiming the Bible truly teaches it, the Scriptures themselves give no such ‘pre-tribulation’ timing to the Coming of Christ for his faithful ones. In fact: Just the opposite! Continue reading “The Biblical Timing Of The Rapture! PART I”

The Danger And Damage: Why The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Myth Needs ‘LEFT BEHIND’!

Is the fact there are multiple scenarios being preached concerning Christ’s coming for his Church really just a matter of differing opinions, or is there a sinister agenda at work?

The end result of embracing deception!

(I sometimes get correspondence from readers who cannot understand why I make such ado over the pre-trib rapture teaching and all it’s associated notions. They accuse me of everything from being divisive and damaging to the Body of Christ to being unloving and hurtful toward people. I recently received one of those ‘What’s the harm in believing and teaching a pre-trib position?’ comments; and since this article pretty thoroughly addresses that question I thought I would repost it. P.B.)

by Paul Benson

As a teacher in the Body of Christ, and called to be a watchman, I spend considerable time researching and writing on false teachings. One of the primary issues I am led to address is the error called ‘the Pre-tribulation Rapture of the Church’. I have written two books and numerous articles rebuking that falsehood with a major focus on examining each element of that teaching for biblical support. The answer is always the same. There really is none. The Bible does NOT teach two comings of Christ NOR a ‘pre-trib’ rapture. It is a provable falsehood; an invention of man.

While my efforts normally center on exposing the pre-trib theory as error, and then encouraging folks to believe and accept only what is plainly stated in their Bible, in this article I would like to focus on the damage done by embracing and teaching that myth. It is not a benign misunderstanding; nor merely an opinion as to the timing of an event. It is a cancerous seduction presenting grave dangers; many of which are not readily apparent. In my effort to bring these dangers to light I have enlisted the help of some like minded folks. I polled them as to their thoughts on what these dangers are; and I found their insights very thought provoking; as I am sure you will too.

The Church, The Tribulation, and The Great Falling Away – Zac Poonen

zac p

I don’t know that I could possibly recommend a more insightful and balanced ministry than that of brother Zac Poonen. His teachings on Christian doctrine in general, and the eschatology in particular presented in the following video, are in excellent harmony with the Scriptures.

He, a former ‘pre-tribber’, left behind that erroneous teaching for the very same reason I did. He could not find it in the Bible though he searched for it diligently. The Word of God was speaking no such thing to him. The only place he was hearing it was from the pulpit! Continue reading “The Church, The Tribulation, and The Great Falling Away – Zac Poonen”
