Recently a reader contacted me with some questions concerning a write-up he had come across titled ’16 Proofs of a Pre-trib Rapture.’ You can find that writing HERE . I felt that all might benefit from a thorough response to those supposed ‘proofs’ of a rapture of the Church that author claims happens prior to the coming time of tribulation and Antichrist’s war on the Saints.

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

(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.

Forgiveness of our past sins is our very first and our constant need. The guilt of our sins could not be removed by God by any other way than by the payment of the full penalty for our sins. “Without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness” (Hebrews 9:22).
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. Continue reading “What Do I See In America’s Future?”
As I contemplate the scope of the work I have done, laboring to fulfill the call and burden the Lord has placed within my heart and spirit, I give serious thought as to what really ‘gets it done’ so to speak.
If one were to ask me what is the most crucial word I have given (outside of the call to repent and come to Christ) I would have to say it is what the Lord spoke to me about the serious nature and damage done by the error of the pre-trib rapture hoax that has inundated the modern Church in the last decades.

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!

Hi Folks! As a teacher with somewhat of a narrowed focus of ministry I realize my readers need much more than a steady diet of my rebuke and correction of the many errors that plague the modern believer. I would like to recommend to you someone I feel really has his finger on the pulse of world events and how they relate to biblical prophecy being fulfilled in our lifetime.
His name is John Haller and he has a weekly video presentation I have been following for quite some time now. I think you would truly be benefited by what he has to say. Here is where you can find his work:
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”
