Believing And Teaching The Pre-trib Rapture Doctrine Is Direct Disobedience To The Word Of God!

What if someone could show you that embracing the Pre-tribulation Rapture teaching causes you to disobey God’s Word? Would you change your opinion of that modern theory?

Deception in the CHurch
Taking a closer look at the ‘Pre-trib’ teaching!

 

by Paul Benson

And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you. 5 And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ. 2Thessalonians 3:4-5

As followers of Christ we all are (or should be) looking forward to the day of his Return to this planet. But did you know that, concerning our beliefs about the end-times and the coming of Jesus, there are certain instructions given us that we are commanded to adhere to? And that to disregard those instructions, and to follow instead the contrary notions taught by man, is actually direct disobedience to God?

This is not a trivial matter!

Let me ask you a few questions: How important is it to obey the commands of our Creator? And, more pertinently, how important is compliance to those commands to you personally?

As Bible believing Christians who could deny that the Scriptures express a firm exhortation that we are to not only obey the words of Christ but also those of his Apostles. That the inspired words the Apostles spoke and wrote, right along with the teachings of Jesus, are to be considered the commandments of God and obeyed! We all believe that, right?

But have you ever considered how this might apply to what is currently being preached and taught concerning what we are to believe about the end-times and the Return of Jesus? I have!

And I can absolutely prove from the Scriptures that believing in and teaching a secret invisible coming of Christ for the Church seven years prior to the Second Coming (the pre-trib rapture doctrine) is not only bogus, but is also flat out disobedience to many of God’s commands given through Christ and his Apostles about what we are to believe!

Are you in a ‘pre-trib rebellion’ against God’s Word?

Please allow me to recap and consolidate some of the points I have made over the years which show the way the pre-trib teaching flat-out ignores and contradicts many firmly stated exhortations given us to follow in our efforts to piece together the puzzle of the end-time prophecies.

Elijah List Testimony – How I Worked 7 Years to Deceive You – Kevin Kleint

{Note from Paul Benson: Kevin Kleint recently republished his testimony on his site. I had read Kevin’s testimony quite some time ago and it really had a familiar ring to it as I myself had to work my way through the muddle and mixture of what many call the modern day prophetic movement. In 2003-2004 as I began to speak against the false teachings and wayward lifestyles of the celebrity speakers who had gained such prominence and respect among the progressive faction of the Western Church I was meet with great rebuke and ridicule.  Few seemed interested in following the Apostle Paul’s exhortation to ‘Prove all things and hold fast that which is good’.

And please let me add my opinion that the deception being manifest in the days Kevin worked for the Elijah List was quite adolescent compared to the current deception. The anti-biblical and ecumenical nature of much of what is being touted as ‘what God is dong in this generation’ has greatly increased in recent years. If you think those associated with the Elijah List, Bethel Church, IHOP, those promoting the Seven Mountains Mandate, or the ‘Prophets/Prophetesses that have come to be labeled by many as the *’New Apostolic Reformation’ are speaking on behalf of your Heavenly Father, then you really need to get before God and seek some discernment!

The title ‘NAR’ that many such as myself use to point to a specific sphere of deceptive teachings and practices of ministry is just a moniker coined by those who originally spear-headed this ‘move’ (ie. C. Peter Wagoner etc.). Many who hold to the wayward teachings of the current deception will point out there is no Organization or Denomination that goes by the name the New Apo0stolic Reformation and that is true; but when you examine their beliefs and teachings you will find a common belief in a global hierarchy of ‘Apostolic Authority,’ and the firm belief that all Christians must come under the umbrella of these modern day Apostles and Prophets who have received an ‘updated’ vision for the Church.

But sadly, this ‘revised gospel’ of global ecumenical unity and global Dominion by the Church is NOT the Gospel of the Bible, nor the end-time scenario the prophecies of the Bible predict!

Maybe you think I am barking at the wind with my rebuke of these NAR Prophets and Apostles; but please excuse me if I get a little troubled when I see these ‘celebrity ministers’ laying aside the ‘repentance toward God and faith in the work of our crucified and resurrected Christ’ Gospel message in favor of a modern message that centers around conquering the world to prepare it for the future Reign of Righteousness. AND further troubled when I see them reaching out in unity to the RCC/Pope. The same Pope (a blatant communist!) that has gone so far off the rails that even many of those sitting under him are calling him a heretic!

Shouldn’t we be asking ourselves: WHY are those who claim to be sitting in authority over the Body of Christ in this generation, and claim to be hearing the voice of God, promoting unity with a Pope that believes and states that the Allah of Islam is the God of the Bible? BEWARE!}

My Elijah List Testimony – Working for a Prophetic Hub of Deception

by Kevin Kleint

Between the years 2001-2008, I was the webmaster for the Elijah List, one of the largest distributors of false prophecy for the prophetic movement. During this time, I learned some very difficult, yet beneficial, lessons about God, the prophetic movement and life in general. What’s more, I witnessed “first hand” the deception that goes on behind the scenes in what was (arguably) the most popular prophetic email ministry of the time.

If you read the following posts, you will gain insight into:

These posts have angered some who are neck-deep in the modern day prophetic movement (especially those who are profiting from it) and they have been a confirmation to others who knew that something was off all along.

The Day The Believers Stand Before The Judgment Seat of Christ – When And Where?

What have YOU been taught about the Judgment Seat of Christ? Is it in line with the Word of God?

The pre-trib rapture is false teaching.

 

 

 

 

 

by Paul Benson

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. 2Corinthians 5:10

We hear much mention of ‘the Judgment (Bema) Seat of Christ’ in the preaching and teaching of the Christian Church. And most of that preaching (particularly from the Dispensational / Pre-trib crowd) portrays this event as somewhere off in the future much later than the day we are caught-away to meet our Lord Jesus.

But searching the Word of God I cannot find any clear description of a Judgment of the believers taking place in Heaven, or even any hint of a later timing, that would indicate this to be an event that takes place years after what many like to call ‘the Rapture’. So where are they getting all these facts on this topic they are claiming that: ‘the Bible says!’? Out of a hat?

To me this ‘down the road’ judging of the believers seems to be quite askew from what the Bible actually does have to say about the judgment and reward of the followers of Christ. Let’s take a closer look at this matter. Continue reading “The Day The Believers Stand Before The Judgment Seat of Christ – When And Where?”

A Discussion On Divorce And Remarriage

Are we really in tune with what Christ and his Apostles taught about divorce and remarriage?

by Paul Benson

What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. -Jesus Christ

A reader recently posed a question to me concerning my view on divorce and remarriage. Though I could have probably satisfied her request with a ‘nutshell’ answer I felt it might be a good time to share my view (and experience) in an article for all to consider.

The issue of divorce and remarriage by those professing faith in Christ is one that is frequently addressed and taught upon in the Church today. But it is my personal opinion that it is seldom addressed in a manner that is in accord with the true teachings of the New Testament. At the risk of taking a hit to my readership stats (hopefully I am more concerned about winning God’s approval than yours!) let’s take a look at what the Bible really does and does not say about this topic.

Your Ark Of Safety

Do YOU have an Ark? You are going to need one!

jesus-3548007_640

(The following is a modified excerpt from the booklet ‘ Escape or Passover’ by Paul Benson)

For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. 37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Hebrews 10:36-37

Jesus is most certainly coming! It’s only a matter of when. In the fast-food mentality of the modern Church extolling the virtues of patience and perseverance has been cast aside in favor of preaching/selling principals of prosperity. Teachings which promise to get you what you want from God, and get it for you now! But patience and endurance are both truly necessary to receive favor and fulfillment of promise from God; and as this age progresses they will become all the more needful and precious.

What Do I See In America’s Future?

Is it blue sky and clear sailing ahead for America like so many are prophesying today?

 

by Paul Benson

I hear preachers and teachers on a regular basis claiming America is Babylon the Great, and prophesying that her demise is about to happen ANY DAY NOW! But, though many are firmly entrenched in their belief of an imminent destruction of America, I do not share that vision. Let me try to explain what I do see ahead for this nation.

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”

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.

 

David Wilkerson – The Apostasy Of The Last-Days

Why are so many today explaining away certain truths of the Bible that men of God once greatly expounded upon?

wilkerson

by Paul Benson

I want to share a message on 2Thessalonians chapter 2 by David Wilkerson with you. It speaks even louder today that when it was preached. But before I do I want to give you a sense of why I feel this message is so critical to hear right now.

The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.  Mark 1:3

Just as John’s astute message on repentance prepared a straight path for the coming of Christ and his message to the world, so also will a repentance-less gospel make a crooked path in preparation for Antichrist and his. That path is being prepared before our very eyes!

Just as the true gospel that is according to godliness prepares the hearts and minds of those who embrace it to come into communion with ‘our Father who art in Heaven’, in a similar manner the corrupt and perverted gospel going forth in this generation is preparing those who are seduced by it to come under the spell of a not-so-heavenly father: the one from the black abyss!

The Old Paths

Many are blind to the promises of blessing in God’s warnings of Judgment. Do you see them?

forest-1221730_640
Seek the old paths!

 

by Paul Benson

For thus hath the LORD of hosts said, Hew ye down trees, and cast a mount against Jerusalem: this is the city to be visited; she is wholly oppression in the midst of her. 7 As a fountain casteth out her waters, so she casteth out her wickedness: violence and spoil is heard in her; before me continually is grief and wounds. 8 Be thou instructed, O Jerusalem, lest my soul depart from thee; lest I make thee desolate, a land not inhabited. 9 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, They shall throughly glean the remnant of Israel as a vine: turn back thine hand as a grapegatherer into the baskets. 10 To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the LORD is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it. 11 Therefore I am full of the fury of the LORD; I am weary with holding in… Jeremiah 6:6-11

In the sixth chapter of Jeremiah God sets forth a very stern warning concerning the approaching Judgment of his beloved city of Jerusalem. A very concise and descriptive warning of what would befall the inhabitants if they continued along their course of rebellion and corruption.

I have stated before that I believe there is a remarkable parallel between the condition of our nation and that of ancient Israel in the days before they fell victim to the Judgment of God and were stripped of the glory and blessing they foolishly thought they could never lose.

I don’t place much confidence in all the prophesying I am hearing of a coming era of peace and prosperity for the nation of America. It is a false vision and a delusion that mirrors the words of the false prophets pacifying (and fleecing) the people of Jerusalem in the days before her humiliation.

We are a nation already under Judgment; but most cannot recognize that fact as they do not understand God’s judgments are often unfolded in a progressive manner. Just because there are not fireballs or nuclear warheads falling from the sky, or super volcanos erupting, does not mean we are not currently being dealt with by the Almighty.

Though much could be said about the coming hardships this nation will face, and evidence shown that God is removing our staff and stay (Isaiah 3:1), my intention with this article is to focus upon the promise of blessing God has placed (as he normally does) right in the middle of this warning of coming Judgment.
