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;
Whatever happened to the other half of the Gospel that brings balance to the true salvation message?
Recently a reader sent me a well-meaning rebuke on how he found my consistent attack on false teachings to be “lacking in grace and love (and driven by the Law and commandments).” I did my best to reply in a manner that explained the deep burden I carry as a teacher who is called to carry a prophetic message of, not only the Coming wrath upon the Wicked, but also the coming Judgment upon a back-slid Christianity that is heading for a serious period of purging and sifting before the Return of our Lord for his Bride.
As I was spending the morning in prayer (and in consideration of his exhortation) the following compilation video from Sermonindex.net came up in my Que. Let me just say this video hit me like a brisk breeze to the cloth of a sail-boat! I wonder if brother Fred would consider these great men of God to be also lacking in grace and love, and find them likewise a bit too ‘legalistic’?
If you have never checked out Sermonindex you are missing out on a great resource that makes available to you the preaching of great men of God like Zac Poonen, Leonard Ravenhill, A.W. Tozar, David Wilkenson, Keith Daniel, Carter Conlon, Paris Reidhead, etc. etc. etc.. The preaching of these folks will bring to you the TRUE Gospel, not the convoluted mess that is being vomited forth from most pulpits in this day.
And PLEASE pray for me in my new venture into teaching videos. I would like to see my efforts express a bit more polish (and effectiveness) than I have been able to produce thus far. But I am confident the Lord is leading and will grant increase.
Blessings upon 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 have been watching the extensive video series by bro. Robert Adams with a great sense of accord. I don’t know where he is at on all matters of Christian doctrine, but he approaches eschatology without preconception or denominational/theological prejudice. I always admire someone who emphasizes clearly stated Bible truths and minimizes personal opinions and speculations. I think anyone would find much edification, and also much food for thought, in examining his video presentations.
He is another former Pre-tribber who got set free (years ago) from that delusion by embracing the truths of God’s Word over and above the teachings of man. In this video he doesn’t do much teaching; he is merely reading the many scripture passages that deal with the day of Christ’s Return. I got some additional insights just listening to him read these passages! Maybe you will too.
P. S. I’ve been devoting much time and effort to the task of moving into audio and video teaching. Things are coming together and I should have some stuff posted soon. Again, please pray for me. This endeavor has me stretched waaaaaaaay out of my comfort zone and most certainly beyond my technical abilities. But it is looking like progress. P.B.
Is the ‘Pre-wrath Rapture’ view the correct solution to the end-time prophecy puzzle? Well… not exactly!
by Paul Benson
Recently a reader sent me an e-mail asking my thoughts on the ‘Pre-wrath Rapture’ view and sent me also a link to an article by Alan Kurschner who holds to the Pre-wrath view. His article was titled ‘Still waiting for a Post-tribber to respond to Prewrath eschatology… Crickets!’. You can find that article HERE.
I will in this writing give the reasons I firmly believe the Pre-wrath position to be (in certain key areas) an incorrect assessment of the events surrounding the Return of our Lord. Continue reading “Why I Don’t Accept The ‘Pre-wrath Rapture’ View”
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;
