The Rapture Verdict – A Review

I’m always on the lookout for those who transcend the constraints of popular thought and allow the Holy Spirit to direct their understanding of the Last Days. I have found very, very few who have enough of that ‘Last Days’ understanding to be able to give them more than the briefest of mentions.

Well, I can now say that I’ve found one name that is worthy of great commendation:

Michael Snyder

I bought his latest book – The Rapture Verdict – a few days ago, and blasted through it. I wanted to see if I could recommend it to you.

I am glad to say that I can.

WEEKEND SHOCKCAST: The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie

I really wish that the Pre-Tribulation Rapture wasn’t a Lie. I really do. I wish that we didn’t have to go through three and a half years of extreme persecution. I wish that being a Christian meant that life was a serene experience of clear skies and smooth sailing.

Unfortunately, those of us who wish to live holy and righteous lives in Christ, WILL suffer persecution (2 Tim 3:12). When Paul wrote that to Timothy, he wasn’t thinking of the persecution that you and I have experienced – frowns, disapproval and lost jobs. No, he was referring to the persecution that Christians are experiencing right now in the Arab world – such as with ISIS and Boko Haram.

The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie – Part 6 – The Movie

Lord willing, we will get back to our normal fare of debt, death and destruction. So, let’s finalize this series with a movie. In fact, more than one.

I did not know about the Nicolas Cage film until after I started this series, and it makes me sick to think that Hollywood has added its weight to this lie. Hollywood has been a purveyor of lies from the beginning, so it should make you suspicious, whenever you find them involved.

But, there’s another movie that I like better, and it speaks the truth to this issue. And, THAT movie stars Pastor Steven Anderson.

The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie – Part 5 – The Wrath of Satan

I spent the day answering comments because I wanted to get a sense of what people believed – and why. And, it appears that some are mixed up about what will happen during the Great Tribulation.

(Click HERE for Part Four) – | – (Click HERE for Part Six)

Did you know that what we normally call the Great Tribulation is actually in two distinct parts?

That’s right, the first part is the rule of the Antichrist and his great persecution of Christians. I call it the Great Persecution. And, this is what most people mean when they say Tribulation.

The second part is the Wrath of God, when He destroys the Antichrist and all who follow him.

So, why do proponents of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie argue so vehemently against a post-tribulation Rapture?

Because they don’t want to suffer persecution.

The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie – Part 4 – Causing True Harm

I know that it seems like this isn’t really all that significant, and three years ago, I might have agreed with you. But, we have brothers and sisters who are asleep, and you need tools to help wake them up.

(Click HERE for Part Three) – | – (Click HERE for Part Five)

Worse, as I dug deeper into this issue, I’ve found that the damage that this Lie has done isn’t limited to our ability to survive the Tribulation. It is corrupting our view of the Bible, and it has ALREADY caused horrifying trauma to Christians in far away places.

Like it or not, this Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie is just another version of the feel-good, prosperity doctrine from someone like Joel Osteen. It’s spiritual heroin, and it’s gotta’ stop.

The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie – Part 3 – Jesuit Origins

As I have looked over the evidence put forward by those who support the pretrib lie, I am amazed at how bad their evidence is. There is just no way that you can come up with such an obvious falsehood without external help.

(Click HERE for Part Two) – | – (Click HERE for Part Four)

Well, that external help came in the form of a Chilean Jesuit priest, Manuel Lacunza. And, I find it to be extremely significant that the origin of this pretrib lie was a member of such a devious organization – an organization that played a key role in the creation of the Illuminati, the Gestapo, the CIA, MK-Ultra, and in the corruption of Christianity.

So, let’s talk about the Jesuits and how they created the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie.

The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie – Part 2 – False Evidence

Many responses to my article on the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie, were very troubling. It showed a desperate desire to hold onto this lie, even to the point of twisting the Bible, itself. And, I am shocked at the lack of evidence that pre-trib supporters have.

(Click HERE for Part One) – | – (Click HERE for Part Three)

It has taken a week, but I have finally come to realize that the only way that you can support the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie, is to believe that it MUST exist. Only then can you bend the Bible to support your argument.

This is exactly how supporters of evolution have been able to explain their theory as fact. According to them, because God cannot be real, evolution must be true.

The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie

I try to always ask God for direction before I write, because I truly want every word that I write to be what He wants you to read. I really do. It scares me that I would lead you astray in ANYTHING. Unfortunately, because I am fallible, you cannot trust my words completely. I really am no better than you are.

(Click HERE, for last week’s series on Bible Twisting.)

(Click HERE for Part Two)

I say all that, because I wanted to write something else today. There are such dire threats facing us, that talking about spiritual lies seems like a waste of time. The problem is that you won’t heed my warnings, if you believe spiritual lies. So, here we go again.

Prophecy Clock – The Rapture

I’ve been trying to avoid this topic for a long time. I don’t like controversy, and this site is really about only one thing – helping you survive what is coming. Unfortunately, I’ve painted myself into a corner, so we need to talk about this subject.

The problem is that if you believe that the rapture will happen before anything bad comes… well, you won’t prepare. And, history is full of what happens to people who believe that nothing bad can happen to them. Please remember that it doesn’t matter what YOU think about what God is saying. It truly only matters what GOD thinks about what He is saying.

The Rapture That Wasn’t

It was Wednesday, June 7th, 1967, and my dad was driving through Indianapolis on his way to work and listening to the radio. Everyone had been listening to reports about the war in Israel, and Dad was intent on what was happening.

He’d been going to classes at a local seminary, where his instructor taught that The Rapture would occur when Jerusalem was captured by the Jews. Almost every seminary was teaching this, so you could imagine the interest that many Christians had in what was going on in Israel.
