Where in the world did anyone ever get the idea Rev. 19:14 was evidence of a pre-trib rapture?
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;
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?
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.
Blessings to all who love our Christ;
Have you been convinced that the coming time of great tribulation is God’s Wrath being poured out on this world? Can you show me where the Bible teaches such a thing?
This is the first of a three part video series on the bogus claim that the time of great tribulation is the Wrath of God. Since the whole Pre-tribulation Rapture teaching rests on this notion it is an issue that needs some close scrutiny by those seeking the truth about the prophetic events about to unfold in the near future.
In this series of video teachings we will be concentrating on three key areas of discernment:
1. The difference between God’s temporal Judgments and his eternal Wrath.
2. The usage of the word ‘tribulation’ in the New Testament; and also just WHAT did Jesus mean with the words: ‘then shall be great tribulation’?
3. Examining the clear and precise timing the Scriptures give to the out-pouring of God’s Wrath in the end-time scenario.
Please feel free to share your thoughts as we examine this greatly misunderstood and grossly mistreated aspect of the end-time prophecies.
Blessings to all who love our Christ;
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!
Here is the promised part 2 of my video on those ‘Stolen Snippets’. I look forward to any feedback on this topic. Blessings.

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”
Are you bringing condemnation upon yourself by teaching things about the end-times that the Bible does not? There WILL be consequences!
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. Continue reading “Eschatological Accountability (Paul Benson 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;
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?
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;
What lays ahead for Jerusalem is a far cry from what many are teaching!
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.
I welcome your input!
