Bible Proof The Church Is NOT Missing From Earth After Revelation 4:1!

Have you been told the Church has gone missing from Earth after the ‘come up hither’ of Revelation 4:1? You have been seriously misinformed!

Church missing after Revelation 4:1

by Paul Benson

The notion of a ‘Pre-tribulation Rapture’ of the Church is one of the most satanic delusions ever to confront the Body of Christ. But quite sadly it is also one of the most widely received. And a large segment of the Christian community has no clue as to the satanic scheme behind that myth. What better way to get your adversaries to enter the final battle with you ill-prepared than to convince them it is a battle they will never fight?

I show solid proof and biblical example of the danger and damage of that error in a write-up I titled The Curse Of The Pre-trib Rapture. If you have never read that article PLEASE do so. The understanding brought forth there is critical to the end-time believer. The disregarding of God’s warning against adding to or taking away from his Holy Word will bring tragic results to a multitude; and ultimately for many it will bring eternal perdition upon them! This matter is not a trifle one.

The greatest strength of the pre-trib teaching is not found in any Scriptural validation, but in the tendency of a self-centered and self-serving western Church to accept it with-out reservation. In studying out this matter, and responding to it, I have not found even one ‘unquestionable proof’ of a pre-trib rapture that does not fall to pieces when you actually DO question it, and subject it to the full counsel of God’s Word.

Let’s examine one of those ‘unquestionable proofs’ here today. The notion that because the Church is (supposedly) not referred to in the Bible after Revelation 4:1 this emphatically proves the ‘Rapture’ has removed them from earth prior to the great tribulation. Is there any validity to this claim? Continue reading “Bible Proof The Church Is NOT Missing From Earth After Revelation 4:1!”

The Most Important Preparedness Item For Christians!

What do you think is the most vital item in a person’s preparedness supplies? I have my pick!

Christian preparedness
I CAN’T SURVIVE WITHOUT THIS!

 

by Paul Benson

As the nations of this world grow increasingly unstable, and the days we live in grow increasingly uncertain, talk of survival skills and preparedness has become one of the most frequent subjects of Christian conversation.

And you can hardly tune in to a Christian talk radio show without hearing it discussed and various preparedness items promoted for sale. After food, water, gold, and guns each seem to have their own take on what is utterly vital for the survival of the ‘prepared’ (with these must-have items usually directly tied to the income of the ones promoting them!).

But please allow me to give you my take on what I see as absolutely the most vital preparedness item for the believer as we face the dark days ahead. And I wont charge you a thing! Continue reading “The Most Important Preparedness Item For Christians!”

There’s A Storm Coming!

The Great Tribulation the wrath of God/

by Paul Benson

As a Christian I have never been very bashful about using the term ‘New-Ager’ to describe (in a negative fashion) those caught up in the deceptive narrative of what has come to be referred to as the ‘New Age Movement’.

The doctrines and philosophies of that mind-set are certainly rife with error (much of which is actually quite Antichrist); and we could spend a great deal of time examining those errors. But instead I would like to point out something they are absolutely correct about.

There definitely IS a New Age coming!

And thus, as a firm believer in the truth of God’s Word which promises this coming new age, I suppose I would have to honestly confess to my own status as one of those dreadful new-agers! There! I finally said it! I am a ‘New-Ager’! (I feel so much better now!)

But what I am really concerned about here is: Are you and I, as followers of Christ, really believing (and living like) we are on the cusp of the dawn of this new age? Continue reading “There’s A Storm Coming!”

THE KING IS COMING!

Why does the Church in general speak so little about an event so huge? Maybe it’s time we spoke up!

Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;  Titus 2:13 

The Return of Jesus Christ to planet Earth is at the very heart of the Christian faith. Down through the ages the gatherings of believers resonated with the preaching on, and anxious anticipation of, his glorious Coming to judge the Earth. But for the most part this topic has become less and less the focus of modern ‘ministry’.

And quite alarmingly (at least to me) very few seem much taken aback by this radical departure from the preaching on a subject matter that has captivated the attention of the Church for nearly twenty centuries. Why is this? Continue reading “THE KING IS COMING!”

Does John 14:2-3 Promise The Believer A Mansion In Heaven On A Street Of Gold?

What do you believe about the eternal home of the believer? Is it in line with the truth of Gods Word?

a mansion on a street of gold

by Paul Benson

I heard about a mansion He has built for me in glory. And I heard about the streets of gold beyond the crystal sea; About the angels singing, and the old redemption story, And some sweet day I’ll sing up there the song of victory.  (Victory in Jesus -an old Gospel hymn by E.M. Bartlett 1939)

As followers of Christ we need to understand that a great share of what is commonly taught as doctrine is little more than the traditions of man which have no foundation in the Word of God. For example: we have heard all our lives that the Bible talks about the day that ‘the lion shall lay down with the lamb’; but there is not a verse in the Bible that actually makes that claim. If you don’t believe me try to find it!

It does say: ‘The wolf and the lamb shall feed together’ (Isaiah 65:25), but I guess that wasn’t lovey-dovey enough to make it into the Book of Traditions (many folk’s favorite Bible).

I am quite sorry to burst anyone’s bubble here but the notion of dwelling forever in a fabulous mansion on a street of gold in Heaven is just another one of those traditions that does not reflect the truth of Scripture. What does the Bible really teach about our eternal dwelling place? Is it in Heaven? Continue reading “Does John 14:2-3 Promise The Believer A Mansion In Heaven On A Street Of Gold?”

The Coming ‘Global Brain’ – Or How Antichrist Will Counterfeit The Divine Attributes Of God!

Will Antichrist and the False Prophet use a highly advanced version of the Internet to unleash their evil tyranny upon Planet Earth? I think you can count upon it!

{Disclaimer: I am a real stickler about founding our doctrine upon only what is plainly stated in the Scriptures; and recommend exercising great caution with any claims of ‘Bible Truth’ which cannot show that solid foundation. All else should be honestly presented as speculation. It is into that category that I would place this article. Please, take it as such. P.B.}

As a Christian believer, and an avid student of Bible prophesy, I have always had a fascination with technology. Technology and the coming Mark of the Beast are joined at the hip, so to speak. Realizing this, I try (as much as possible) to stay abreast of the latest innovations.

The development of new platforms and applications is nearly impossible to keep up with; and the capabilities of the systems now being ‘birthed’ are far beyond the comprehension of the average person. I say birthed for good reason. Much of what is on the horizon, and even now being implemented, has characteristics we would formerly only attribute to humanity.

Jeremiah: Blessing in Great Tribulation!

When the Judgment of God fell upon Jerusalem, remarkably the Blessing of God fell upon Jeremiah. As believers could we also find God’s favor in a time of Judgment?

(Of all the personal ‘words’ the Lord has given me this is truly one of my favorites! I feel a leading to republish it at this time for those who might not have read it. P.B.)

The Judgment of Jerusalem

For Israel’s sin and rebellion against him, God sent the enemy of his people to visit his judgment upon them. When Jerusalem finally fell, after the long horrible siege (that actually left some resorting to cannibalism!), then came the commander of Nebuchadnezzar’s army and sought out the prophet Jeremiah. But not to sentence him to a life of slavery, or to slay him (the fate of most of the priests, prophets, and citizens of that city). No! Not to harm him, but to BLESS HIM! And bless him he did. What was it that brought such an abundance of God’s favor upon Jeremiah? Let’s take a look at the life of this man of God. Continue reading “Jeremiah: Blessing in Great Tribulation!”

Answering A VERY Misleading Question: Who Will Populate The Millennium?

To keep the spotlight off obvious weak points in their teachings deceivers will fuss on and on about over inflated non-issues to sidetrack and distract you. We need to recognize this as a main ingredient in serving up deceptive doctrines.

Untwisting The Pretzel Logic of Pre-trib Theory

…and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. Revelation 20:4

Most pre-trib teachers and preachers have a pet ‘proof’ they like to take out and cuddle quite often. They claim that a post-tribulation Coming of Christ to catch away the Church absolutely cannot be the correct view as it leaves no mortals alive to populate the millennium. But is there any traction there; or are they merely spinning their wheels, and once again making a lot of noise over nothing?

Let’s look at the question of who will populate the millennium from the perspective of what actually is (and what is not) taught in the Scriptures; and not just the unsupported opinions and theories of man. Continue reading “Answering A VERY Misleading Question: Who Will Populate The Millennium?”

Could There Ever Be Such A Thing As ‘Tribulation Saints’ Without The Holy Spirit?

Will a multitude of new believers during the tribulation face the onslaught of Antichrist’s war on the Saints in their own strength and still remain faithful?

by Paul Benson

The folly of Dispensational Theology states that the Age of Grace comes to an end at the event they call the Pre-tribulation Rapture of the Church; and that the Holy Spirit is also removed from the Earth at this time. But then they also claim there are those who get saved and follow Christ to the point of martyrdom during this time of tribulation.

The notion there will be followers of Christ during the time of great tribulation who are saved but not born again, and who are not indwelt by the Spirit of Christ, presents many problems both theological as well as practical. Let’s look at a few points I feel prove this notion is totally out of accord with the Scriptures; and therefor completely bogus.

A Deceiving Distraction: Who Is The Restrainer Of 2Thessalonians 2:7?

Who has not heard much discussion concerning the ‘Restrainer’ of 2Thess. 2:7? But how many have prayerfully considered the entire chapter? Have YOU?

The restrainer of the Antichist

by Paul Benson

For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed…  2Thessalonians 2:7-8

One of the greatest hindrances to Bible study in the area of end-time prophesy is the mess many people make out of the 2nd chapter of 2nd Thessalonians. The distraction they introduce into the text has you asking and answering questions, which not only promote a falsehood in themselves, but so occupy your attention that you lose track of what the Apostle was truly saying in the first place. This subtle beguilement is so effective that it replaces a solid rebuke of the pre-trib rapture theory in these verses with a ‘proof text’ promoting it instead!

The element of deception here centers around a notion that the main focus of this text is the appearance of the man of sin (Antichrist), who has a ‘restrainer’, and that this restrainer is the Holy Spirit. Therefor the Holy Spirit (along with those he indwells) must be removed before the evil one can be revealed. But a proper reading of this chapter, without that attention absorbing distraction, shows something quite different! Let’s first develop some discernment about this distraction, and divorce ourselves from it; then we can receive the truths Paul was really presenting.
