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!

Please take time to listen to this man of God warn of the deceptions associated with the Return of our Lord being taught today by Christians who have been deceived by seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. . He also does an excellent job explaining the difference between tribulation and the wrath of God. This brother’s preaching is a strong and bold warning; but it is also very edifying, encouraging, and Christ exalting. P.B.

  1. Zac Poonen is not telling you the truth, but a lie. He asserts that the word `tribulation` never appears in the Old but only in the New Testament. In fact, the word `tribulation` appears three times in the Old Testament:

    Mr. Benson, I urge you to make doubly sure that whatever you or your fundi say can indeed be substantiated by God`s Word.

    Let me remind you what you wrote in your book `A Bucket Full of Holes.`

    It is absolutely amazing the lengths folks will go to in order to fabricate various proofs, or twist alternate renderings out of verse, to provide support for their theory. Much of this book deals with debunking those cagey ‘proofs’ and showing them to be unworkable. All in all I think you will find much to ponder in these pages.
    So let’s engage that safeguard of critical examination and take a thorough look at all the various facets of pre-trib theory, and see if there really is any reason we should be believing in such a concept. – Paul Benson

    You are guilty of your own indictment. How can we trust you and your fundi when you refuse to remove the beam from your own eyes?

    1. Hi Tom;
      I caught that statement also; but I would caution against such an attitude of accusation and mistrust of Bro. Poonen’s (or my own ministry) over his words. Those words are easily explainable; and I think he deserves a bit more grace than you seem to be willing to give him.

      As I understand it Brother Poonen and those associated with his ministry use the New American Standard Bible for their study and preaching. Although I strongly advise my readers to use only the KJV due to the errors and deletions I have discovered to be prominent in ALL modern versions; I do not discredit the preaching or ministry of any who do chose to use them.

      Brother Poonen was not lying or being deceptive with what he was saying. The word ‘tribulation does NOT occur in the Old Testament in the NASB. Brother Poonen is a humble and faithful man of God; and I am sure that if any pointed out to him the word tribulation does occur 3 times in the O.T. in the KJV (or others) he would gladly amend his statement to reflect that fact. But be that as it may; it does not alter the validity of his comments concerning the difference between God’s dealings with man in either the O.T. or N.T. era; nor the validity of his message on the incorrectness of pre-trib theory.

      He was not being cagey, twisting Scripture to make false claims, nor was he fabricating ‘proofs’ (practices I can clearly show evident in pre-trib preaching and teaching!). Your insinuation Brother Poonen was lying, and his entire teaching was untrue just because you found a point you thought you could discredit him on is unfounded (and quite telling).

      The truth remains that the pre-trib rapture teaching is a provably false concept. It is an unbiblical creation of man that disregards the truths that are plainly and clearly stated in the Bible; and exalts instead man’s wayward notions about the end-time scenario that have no foundation in the Word of God!

      I am sorry you have chosen to embrace that fable rather than the expressly stated truths of the Scriptures. May the Lord lead us all into his perfect truth;

    1. Hi Mat;
      No, sorry I just don’t see the connection.

      Personally, and I may be wrong on this point, but I believe the Antichrist will probably be a Homosexual as the prophecies about him state he ‘will not regard the desire of women'(Daniel 11:37); and Trump certainly does not fit that bill.

      Blessings;
      Paul Benson
