Bill Randles – We have Entered the Time of the Strong Delusion!

Hi everyone;

I really enjoyed this interview Tony did with Bill Randles. Not sure exactly what his beliefs are on other topics, but when it comes to the promised end-time delusion I think he has certainly got it right!

We Have Entered The Time Of Strong Delusion! – Bill Randles

Let me know what you think one way or the other.

A Question For My Readers: What Is The Purpose Of The Coming Time Of Tribulation?

What will the coming days of darkness accomplish as far as the purposes of God are concerned?

a mansion on a street of gold

by Paul Benson

I have been listening to the same tired rhetoric from the Dispensationalist/Pre-trib Rapture crowd since I came to Christ 40 years ago. Over and over we are told: God would have NO REASON to subject the Body of Christ to the chaos and horrific events that will unfold during the final years before the Return of Jesus to this planet. That such a thing would be not only a time of overmuch grief for the Church, but would also actually be (in their minds) a breach of promise on the part of God.

While I have addressed at length the issue of whether or not the coming period of tribulation is the Wrath of God being poured out upon this world (it is NOT!), it is increasing evident to me that there is a lack of teaching (even among those who reject the pre-trib theory) on just what WILL be accomplished by the world (Church included) being subjected to the events and hardships of that day.

As I study and pray through on this matter, and prepare to share my conclusions, I thought I might question my readers as to their thoughts on the issue. Do YOU believe the Church will go through that time of great tribulation; and if so: What do you see as God’s purpose in bringing these dark days upon not only the world in general but also upon the Church in particular?

What will this all accomplish?

If you have thoughts you would like to share you can post a comment below or e-mail me if you prefer through the contact page. I look forward to the feedback; and also would greatly appreciate your prayers as I seek to move beyond the hindrances (spiritual as well as physical) of the health issues that have plagued me in recent times and seek to find a renewed vision of God’s current Word to his people.

I seriously believe that very few of those who are claiming to spokespersons for the Lord in this day are truly in sync with either the heart of God or the truth of his Word.; and MUCH of what is being prophesied about the coming days is contrary to the truth. GOD HELP US!

Blessings upon all who love our Christ;

Joel’s Army is “The Coming Storm”? by Tricia Tillin

Is what many popular preachers and prophets teaching about ‘Joel’s Army’ really in line with the truth of God’s Word?

I have received a lot of flack over the years for my insistence that ‘Joel’s Army’ is not Christians ‘taking over the world for Jesus’ but instead is referencing evil forces at work in the last days. They will accomplish God’s ultimate purposes with their oppressive deeds (he is sovereign after all); but the way many are presenting a false ‘Dominionism’ gospel, and twisting Scripture to do so, needs careful scrutiny by those who want a genuine biblical vision of the end-time scenario.

And I have also received much guff for pointing out the errors of a popular false prophet named Mark Taylor who was propelled to Celebrity status by a revamped false prophecy about the 2012 election. His Dominionist teachings are leading many away from a proper eschatological understanding and thereby setting them up for a bitter disappointment, and a possible faltering of their faith, in the coming days of great persecution.

You can find my article on that bogus ministry HERE.

I would like to highly recommend a write-up by Tricia  Tilllin which covers in detail both of these topics which are at the very heart of the current wave of deception plaguing the Charismatic community and thus adversely affecting the entire Body of Christ in our nation (and even globally).

Will Antichrist’s Dominion (And The Mark Of The Beast) Be Confined To The Middle East Or Be A Global Phenomenon?

Is there any truth to the claims many are making that the Mark of the Beast, and the great persecution of God’s elect in that day, will be confined to the Middle East?

        The World-Wide Beast System!

by Paul Benson

Once in a while (and more frequently lately) I either read an article or receive a comment to my site that promotes the notion that the Mark of the Beast and the dominion of Antichrist (and the resulting ‘tribulating’ of the followers of Jesus via Satan’s ‘war on the Saints’) will be merely a regional subjugation versus a global one. Many are teaching this all will be confined to the Arab nations of the Middle East and the rest of the world will not fall prey to Antichrist’s evil reign. But is this what the Scriptures teach us?

Why I am NOT on the Trump Train!

Is America guaranteed a continued ‘return to greatness’ as long as Donald Trump is at the helm? Or could the ‘Trump Train’ possibly run out of tracks?

the trump train
                            Destination Unknown!

I receive a lot of correspondence (personal as well as through my web-site and Blog-page) that tells me the American Church in general is terribly lacking in a proper understanding of God’s sovereignty over the government of this nation. They seem to think Donald Trump himself is responsible for the ‘reprieve’ we have been granted from the tsunami of liberal madness that seeks to flood our nation today (and the eventual consequences of the culturally-damaging decisions that madness fosters).

The True Biblical Timing Of The Rapture (video teaching)

Does the Bible give us any specific timing as to when the Rapture occurs in the end-time scenario? ABSOLUTELY!

The Pre-tribuation Rapture

Hi Folks;

Well, it’s taken a bit longer that I anticipated to get some wind back in my sails after my recent infirmities, but I am now ready to resume my efforts to speak forth that which the Lord leads. IN JESUS’ NAME!

I don’t remember ever having to battle so long to get a teaching out as I have had to with this one. It seems like every devil in Northwest Montana has been at work to hinder the posting of this!

It constantly amazes me the way so many act like all the false teachings afoot concerning the last-days are no big deal. Like somehow these falsehoods are not going to adversely affect anyone’s beliefs, behavior, their future, or their relationship with the Lord. WRONG – on all four counts! A proper understanding of the prophesies about the Return of Jesus and the surrounding events is vital. And an improper understanding could very well lead to great disillusionment; and possibly even a falling away from the true faith. And according to Revelation 22 taking away from the things detailed in that precious book can remove your name out of the Book of Life! If that sounds like mere hyperbole to you I have two words for you: WAKE UP!

As I stated in this video the reason Pre-trib preachers report the Scriptures don’t really give us any specifics as to the timing of the rapture (they teach you must come to a Pre-trib view through means of deductive reasoning) is because they have turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to what the Bible really does say on this issue. The delusion they are held captive by forces them to tune out anything contrary to that theory.

But actually reading and believing what the Bible really does come right out and say (rather than only seeing what you want to) shows a very real pattern of timing concerning the resurrection/catching-away in regard to the other end-time events!

I seriously doubt this teaching will have much impact on those firmly entrenched in Pre-tribulation/Dispensational theology. The delusion that come with it is strong enough to keep most from even questioning their beliefs. But to those who are hearing the Lord trouble their spirit with warnings of a ‘straying from the truth’, or to those who just need shored up in their understanding of the end-time events, I think the information in this video will prove to be quite valuable.

Health Update

Hi All!

Just wanted to take a moment and apologize for the lack of activity on the site recently. Turned out the weird eye issues I was experiencing (that seemed like horrible allergies and such) was actually very high inner eye pressure; and the fix was a procedure called an Almed Glaucoma Valve insertion which left me with a row of stitches across the top of my right eye.

Now the pressure has returned to normal; but as you can imagine (think 20 wood chips or stray eye-lashes in your eye all at once. YES THAT BAD!) eye-stitches and compute monitors don’t go very well together. But recent days have seen some relief compared to the first week or so; and the sensitivity to light is not quite so bad.

I do have another video teaching about ready to go and hope to have it (The True Biblical Timing of the Rapture) produced by the first of next week; and another to soon follow on the reason for the coming time of tribulation. Another teaching on my heart is on the coming purge of Western Christianity.

Please know that I very much do appreciate your prayers for my health as well as for this work God has called me to. JESUS IS LORD!

Who Are The Armies Of Heaven With Jesus In Revelation 19:14? (Paul Benson video)

Where in the world did anyone ever get the idea Rev. 19:14 was evidence of a pre-trib rapture?

The armies of heaven

Hello everyone;

I know it’s been a few weeks since my last post; but I have been severely hindered with some serious health and other personal problems that have prevented my efforts.

I don’t normally whine too much on this blog about my personal struggles (nobody likes a whiner!); but just let me say that between blood sugar issues, eye problems (diabetic retinopathy and inner eye bleeding), an insane allergy attack out of nowhere that lasted three weeks (and was so bad I was wearing sun glasses inside!), and on top of it all computer problems I was unable to deal with because my eyes hurt too bad to look at a monitor for any length of time – the last month or so has been a bit excruciating!

Thankfully experience has taught me to view rough times like these as a time of perfecting (God knows how to work ALL things for our good); and I can happily report that I am feeling like I just had a Holy Ghost tune-up! And, by the grace of God and the prayers of others, I have prevailed and have another video ready to post.

Any comments or criticism is always welcome. And I would greatly appreciate your continued prayers for me. I DO believe that it makes a difference! So thank you all.

Blessings to all who love our Christ;

Is The Great Tribulation the Wrath Of God? part 3 The Biblical Timing Of The Wrath Of God In The Last Days.

A proper understanding of end-time prophecy cannot be had without answering the claim that the tribulation period is God’s Wrath. Is this claim legit or not?

Hi folks!

This is part 3 of a series that answers the question of whether or not the time of great tribulation is the Wrath of God. You can find part 1 here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOCTK…

The entire concept of a Pre-tribulation Rapture rests upon the claim that the time-frame commonly referred to a the Great Tribulation is the Wrath of God being poured out upon planet Earth; and because the Church is not appointed to Wrath we will be taken from this world prior to that period. But nowhere does the Bible present the notion the Wrath of God is poured out before the Return of Christ to Earth. In this series we will explore the following keys of discernment to help us understand a proper view of end-time events:

1. The difference between God’s temporal Judgments and his eternal Wrath.

2. What Jesus really meant with his words: ‘then shall be great tribulation’.

3. The true and plainly stated biblical timing of God’s wrath in the last days.

May the Lord open our eyes to all the falsehoods being taught about the end-times and the Return of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Paul Benson

 

Is The Great Tribulation God’s Wrath? part II (Paul Benson video)

Exactly what did Jesus mean with the words ‘then shall be great tribulation’? Was he speaking of the Wrath of God or something else entirely?

Hi everyone;

Here is the second of the promised three videos on God’s wrath in the end-times. If you missed the first one you can find it HERE.

I welcome your comments (or criticism) on these teachings. Still a little rough around the edges (I’m still a rookie at video production, editing, etc.) but I am sure the content will speak for itself. If you click on the Youtube logo it will take you to Youtube where you can see it full-screen.
