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.

Could words of error somehow cause you to become a stronger Christian? You might be surprised!
by Paul Benson
But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. Hebrews 5:14
Here is something that is extremely hard for many to grasp, and most would consider it quite an outrageous statement: There can be great benefit received from false doctrine and false prophesy!
Yes, you heard me correctly. Gross error in preaching and teaching can be very helpful to strengthen the Body of Christ. In fact, without exposure to such the Christian cannot develop and mature properly! Stymied by these strange words? Please, unfurrow your brow, and allow me to explain.

The following is a modified excerpt from the new book ‘The Pre-Trib Rapture: A Bucket Full of Holes!’ -by Paul Benson
IN THE COURT OF GOD’S ETERNAL TRUTH
Judge Logos-Rhema Presiding
THE WORD OF GOD
THE PRE-TRIB RAPTURE
THE CHARGES: Fraud, Counterfeiting, Intellectual Property Theft, Perjury, Tampering With Evidence, Identity Theft, and Public Nuisance. Other charges pending.
Many transgressions against the truth have certainly been committed in the fabricating of the Pre-Trib rapture teaching; and those promoting that theory are nothing less than serial offenders! The conflicts between the Pre-Trib theory and the Bible are so grievous and irreconcilable it is evident that only one of them can actually be true. And if the deceitful means and methods used to preach and promote that teaching were utilized in the sectors of finance or commerce they might land some people in Jail!
If you go through the Word of God carefully you will find MANY verses which state truths so remarkably contrary to the pre-trib theory (and dispensationalism in general) that either their doctrine is false or the Bible itself is in error. One of the two is a counterfeit; an injurious fraud (and surely the guilty party is not the Word of God)!
To those who investigate the matter closely there is strong evidence deceptive practices have been employed in the promotion of their chicanery. Deceptions and distractions whose purpose is to steer you away from truths clearly stated in the Bible which speak totally contrary to their fraudulent claims. I am talking about Scriptures that absolutely would not have been worded in such a manner as they are if the pre trib rapture was a reality. A good many of these conflicts deal with the concept of faithfulness and reward. Let’s take a close look at some of this evidence, and you will see what I mean: Continue reading “The Word of God versus The Pre-Trib Rapture!”
A lot of people seriously worry if they are in the right fellowship (or organization) or not. I’d like to share some insight God has given me in answer to that Question. Insight which helps me distinguish between a true or counterfeit expression of the Christian Church.

…ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit. -Paul an Apostle of Christ
God desires a habitation! And when all is said and done the labors of the Body of Christ that have been according to the will of God will have built a glorious habitation for God. A living Temple for him to dwell in for all eternity! A lot of people are expecting to live in New Jerusalem. I am expecting to be New Jerusalem!
But the labors of God’s people which have been only according to the will of man will have accomplished little more than the building of religious structures sadly resembling the lifeless pyramids of Egypt. And as believers we need to take a real serious look at our lives (and our efforts) and ask: ‘Am I truly building a temple for God, or merely slaving away on a religious pyramid?’ If you don’t quite get what I mean by building a pyramid read on and you will. Continue reading “Escape From Churchianity: Leaving Behind The Building Of Pyramids”
Are you, or someone you know, expecting an ‘any minute now’ rapture of the Church to whisk you away before the dark days ahead? It’s high time we took a close look into what the Bible really says about this matter. (And also what it does NOT say!)
NEW BOOK AVAILABLE ON THE PRE-TRIB RAPTURE DECEPTION! (AND IT’S FREE!)
Hello everyone! I have now completed my new book on the Pre-trib rapture teaching. It is a comprehensive examination of the many facets of the Pre-trib error which will leave no doubt in your mind as to the incorrectness of that doctrine!
In this book I will help you recognize the deceptive practices used to promote the pre-trib theory. I will show you how it has been fabricated using snippets of verse pulled out of context, deceiving distractions, totally unfounded claims, and even outright lies.
You will even see that most of the ‘catch phrases’ of the pre-trib story are actually snippets stolen away from passages clearly speaking of the Second Coming of Christ! The myth of a pre-tribulation departure of the Church is a provable falsehood that directly contradicts the plainly stated truths of God’s Word concerning the Coming of our Lord and our gathering together unto him!

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

A lot of people will tell you: ‘The Parable of the Wheat and Tares is NOT about the resurrection of the believers and the catching away of the Church!’ The reason they must do so is because their beliefs on the end-times are so far removed from the truth they cannot reconcile them to the prophetic patterns shown in the Scriptures.
The types, shadows, allegories, and parables of the Bible were given us as a framework for our beliefs to fit into. They are a safeguard we must follow to keep our doctrine in line with the truth. Our beliefs must bear a striking resemblance to the picture presented by these patterns or something is amiss. Let’s see if our understanding of the end-time scenario fits the Parable of the Wheat and the Tares: Continue reading “Does Your Eschatology Jive With The Parable Of The Wheat And The Tares?”
Many claim to prove TWO comings of Christ in the last days by showing the Rapture as an unknown day whereas the Second Coming is a known day. Just how solid is this claim?
by Paul Benson
Two Comings Of Christ: Fact Or Fraud?
But of that day and hour knoweth no man… – Jesus Christ
How many times have we heard the words ‘of that day and hour knows no man’ spoken in connection with the pre-trib rapture theory? It is one of the most commonly used phrases in promoting that doctrine. The notion we are expected to swallow is that Jesus was specifically speaking of the supposed pre-trib event when he spoke those words. But just what day was Jesus actually referring to? Some might be quite surprised by the answer to that question! Continue reading “Does The Myth Of -‘An Unknown Day (Rapture) Versus A Known Day (Advent)’- Really Prove 2 Separate Comings?”
In this age of apostasy and great deception it is crucial we have a proper understanding of God’s true grace, and the victory it brings.
by Paul Benson
Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature… -Peter an apostle of Christ
As a teacher to the Body of Christ one of the deepest burdens upon my heart is the fact many believers today do not possess an understanding of God’s grace that actually brings them victory over the power of sin. Instead of preaching grace as an inner strength (which empowers us to conquer the lusts of the flesh and the temptations of this life), most are presenting powerless and unbiblical notions about God’s grace which make excuses for sinful behavior rather than putting it to death. We truly have a great need to get back to a Biblical concept of grace!
But we need more than just a proper definition of the true grace of God. We need an understanding of how the vital keys of victory true grace brings are obtained by the believer, and then how to actually put them to work. Only then can we avail ourselves of the full benefit God’s grace offers. Let’s look at that. Continue reading “Victorious Christianity – Partaking of the Divine Nature!”
What does that expression really mean? Could we truly walk in the very same faith they had? I say let’s go for it!
by Paul Benson
Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. Jude 1:3
Even in his day Jude could see a tendency among the believers to drift away from the foundational truths, as well as the practical example, set forth by the Apostles of our Lord. And he exhorted them to fight their way back to that standard of faith!
The words of our brother Jude speak the same message to us today as they did the day they were penned. But is the Church today giving heed to that godly advice, and contending for a true biblical expression of Christianity and its associated practices? It sure doesn’t look like it to me. It seems to me most of modern Christianity is heading in the opposite direction! But do we have to follow suit? Continue reading “Contending For The Faith Once Delivered To The Saints”
