| Rapture! Rapture! Rapture!
Official Statement On The Holy Scriptures;
The ‘Lens’ Through Which All Knowledge Is Understood;
THE WORD of GOD, AXIOM-1: "IF" there exists any such thing as 'The Word of God'; [and much evidence proves such does exist:]
"THEN" by inherent definition - it must be: Holy, Inspired, Inerrant, Intrepid, Infallible, Infinitive, Invincible, Indestructible, Inexhaustible, Inalienable, Immutable, Implacable, Impossible-to-Improve: Eternal and Indubitable NEVER FAILING and ALL CONQUERING! DEDUCTING
from the simple fact - that God equates His Word with Himself:
"In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God, . . ." John 1:1
(and other Scriptures),
'GOD'S WORD' can have no lesser standard than stated above;
"GOD'S WORD MUST" THEREFORE BE: As true in history, archeology, geography, Earth science, medical science, nutrition, gerontology, agriculture, botany, astronomy, physics, chemistry, climatology, government, law, psychology, sociology - and every subject it touches - as in Theology, Divinity and Doctrine:
And "IF IT BE NOT"- true in all subjects mentioned above; and And "IF IT BE NOT" Holy, Inspired, Inerrant, Intrepid, Infallible, Infinitive, Invincible, Indestructible, Inexhaustible, Inalienable, Immutable, Implacable, Impossible-to-Improve: Eternal and Indubitable in EVERY FIELD OF KNOWLEDGE: Whatever else it may be, it cannot be ‘The Incomparable Word’ of the Great Creator God!
Origins of Rapture Doctrine:
Who were the FIRST Authors to Mention it?
Most Rapture Scholars are UNAWARE of Christ's Great Parable covering the whole Prophetic Overview of His Kingdom, His Coming and His Greatest SIGN OF THE TIMES! (SEE "TARES-&-WHEAT!")

Jesus is NOT coming back This Year!
To say "Jesus Christ is DEFINITELY NOT coming back in 2011" seems rash to many of you - because - you are NOT familiar whit what the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ taught consecutively for 1900 years about the Coming of Jesus back to Earth!
Before you reject this without consideration, PLEASE, at least take a few minutes to understand what the "GREATS" all agreed upon, in spite of understanding other doctrines differently:
>> From Charles Spurgeon to Matthew Henry;
>> From John Calvin to John Knox;
>> From John Wesley to Adam Clarke;
>> From George Whitefield to Jonathan Edwards;
>> From the Puritan-Pilgrims to American Founding Fathers;
How could it be that these Great-&-Godly men, winners of scores of thousands of souls, ALL agreed on the "fullness of time, Signs of the times, what the 'anti-Christ' was NOT, and what MUST precede the coming of the Lord Jesus?
An Example WHY Jesus Could not Come Anytime!
These great men believed the Scriptural Prophecies that:
>> God would regather Israel the "Second Time!"
>> And restore them to their Homeland as promised to Abraham;
** Since this obviously had NOT happened before or during their life time, it was yet to come!
** Therefore Christ could not come back UNTIL this Scripture had been fulfilled and ALL THINGS WERE READY!
Don't be fooled by the "New and the Modern!" Learn what Church has ALWAYS TAUGHT!
Did you know that the 'Imminent-Coming-&-Rapture' is an ALL NEW - MODERN CHURCH MYTH . . . to DECEIVE us . . .to get us off-track . . . to keep us from really working at World Evangelism?
Don't take our word for it - you have Internet access! Check it out!
Another Example WHY Jesus Could not Come Anytime!
Another Example WHY Jesus Could not Come Anytime!
FACT-3: Jesus specifically GUARANTEED He would not come 'UNTIL':
Matthew 24:14 And this Gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a 'WITNESS' unto all nations;
and THEN, (and ONLY then!), shall the end come.
And how did Christ command us to preach this Gospel of the KINGDOM to all the world? By Website? Tracts? Radio? TV? This is all helpful, but NOT what Jesus declared:
Mark 16:15 And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to EVERY CREATURE (person).
My fellow laborers, we have NOT fulfilled this command, or even gotten half done! According to those who study such demographics, NOT EVEN HALF THE WORLD will have heard the name of Jesus Christ as the Saviour . . . 'UNTIL' approximately 2020-2025!
At this point in time (2011), we are still failing a little further behind every single day . . . as more are being born in heathen-pagan nations than are having the Gospel preached to them!
An Example of WHY Jesus Could not Come Anytime!
FACT-4: In Matthew 28:18-21 we are COMMANDED!
"And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, 'All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and TEACH ALL NATIONS,
. . . Teaching them to OBSERVE ALL THINGS WHATSOEVER I HAVE TAUGHT YOU!
And, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world." Amen.
Fellow-laborers: Are you reading CAREFULLY?
QUESTION: DO "YOU" REALLY BELIEVE JESUS MEANS WHAT HE SAYS?
Please consider the following, as these were among the last teachings, the last words, the last commands, and the Great Commission is give in the New Testament in 10 Scriptures!
(A) Jesus commanded that the Gospel of His “KINGDOM” - not just a 'believe-&-be-saved-when-you-die' Gospel - but the KINGDOM GOSPEL MUST be "TAUGHT" in every nation!
Do you realize how ignorant even Bible Christians are about Kingdom of God? (BECAUSE we seldom preach it!) If you don't think so, ask them to share what they know for sure about the Kingdom of Jesus that THEY were born into!
(B) Jesus commanded His Gospel be preached to every creature, every living person! Mark 16:15 Did Jesus mean this or was He just "talking as so muck hot air" with no expectation for us as His Church to obey Him?
(C) Jesus commanded that we teach EVERYTHING that He taught His disciples . . . NOT just ‘4-spiritual-laws-in-4-short-minutes’!
(D) Jesus commanded that ALL people in ALL nations are NOT just to be instructed - or TOLD - but ‘TAUGHT TO OBSERVE “ALL” THINGS’ - (The Greek is to ‘carefully attend to by codified law’!)
Jesus commands us to teach them to be OBSERVANT, just was we define Orthodox Jews who are OBSERVANT, as one who obeys the Mosaic Law, or Roman Catholics who are observant, etc.
If you want to get a "Jolt to your Theology . . ."
If you want a "real shock" - since most of us are 'products of' ... 'part of' ... and 'producers of' ... the "shallow-modern-Church movement" ... read Christ's last teaching to the Church in The Revelation Chapters two and three:
This Teacher challenges you to MAKE A LIST:
>> Of all that Jesus PRAISED the Churches for (such as having Church trials!)
>> And of all that Jesus REBUKED them for!
>> And see that almost NONE of what Jesus said to these Churches do we do, preach, or practice in the USA today!
Please don't Practice Mystical Gnosticism!
**And PLEASE My Precious Brethren, PLEASE don't destroy 6/7 of these Inspired-Inerrant Words of Jesus by trying to make them into some "mystical timed categories" of 7-CHURCH AGES!
**My Brethren, this "number Gospel" is complete MYTH~!
**There is not a SHRED of Scripture to back this up - and those who teach this mystical numerology can't agree on what age is what!
o Do you really thing Jesus has different emphases in different 200-400-year segments?
o "Whose chart" . . . were the Churches of the last 2000 years supposed to go by to be sure they were NOT obeying the WRONG CATEGORY???
o And where are the Charts from these last 2000 years showing the Churches WHAT doctrine THEY were supposed to be emphasizing and obeying?
o Since there ARE none, because no one ever dreamed of such an absurd idea of DESTROYING and REMOVING Scripture from God's Word by making it "apply to a different age" . . .
o How did these Churches know what to do?
You have an Internet . . . look it up: NO ONE EVER believed such mystical, unscriptural nonsense . . .UNTIL the modern Church age!
**This number nonsense is PURE, conjecture, PURE modern days . . it is DECEIT of Satan to get us to IGNORE . . . and REJECT these last teachings of Jesus Christ!
Jesus teaching on Church is Limited: DON"T IGNORE IT!
**Please recall that 90% of all that Jesus taught specifically about His Church is in these two chapters! Other than here, Jesus only mentions "Church" in two scriptures: Matthew 16 and 18!
**There is one and one Church Age only! It is the Age of Grace, the DAY of Salvation, and there is nothing else mentioned at all!
Jesus further commanded that ALL of this Teaching all nations ALL THINGS that HE taught be done by HIS AUTHORITY, claiming that HE HAS ALL POWER - not just in Heaven but also on EARTH!
The simple truth is NONE of these things can be done by His Authority, in His Name, UNTIL His Name is established in Authority!
Christ Gave Us an AMAZING WARNING!
Jesus further WARNED us against BEING DECEIVED and defined it for us as follows:
Luke 21:8 "And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.
Here Jesus warned us about those who come in His Name, saying, correctly, that He is the Christ . . . but preaching that the time of His coming DRAWETH NEAR!. . . instead of emphasizing that the Church needs to obey & carry out His Great Commission!)
[NOTE ASIDE: Many miss-read this Scripture!
[Many miss-read this Scripture to say that preachers come in THEIR OWN NAME . . . SAYING THEY ARE THE CHRIST! I have never met one, and no one I know has. So it is not much of a problem since it is non-existent.
Any nutcase who did Claim-to-be-the-Christ is going to be laughed to scorn or locked up! Jesus did not warn us of people coming in THEIR OWN NAME . . . SAYING THEY ARE THE CHRIST!
. . . BUT RATHER He warned us of those who come to us properly, in the Name of Jesus, (NOT coming in their OWN name),
. . . and those who properly declare that JESUS is the Christ (NOT saying that THEY are the Christ),
. . . these are the ones we will listen to and may even believe them!
Jesus warned us not to believe anyone who emphasized "The Time Draweth Near!" - even if they properly came in His name and Correctly preached Him - Jesus - and the one and only true Christ
END OF SIDE NOTE]
REALITY CHECK: Are we getting this Warning of Jesus? Jesus warned us that those preaching "The Time Draweth Near" is the MESSAGE OF DECEPTION: WHY? Because it emphasizes the OPPOSITE of what Jesus told us to be busy about, OCCUPYING UNTIL . . . He comes!
Sadly, some "rapture false teachers" get people ‘So heavenly minded they are no earthly good!’ This is what happened to the Thessalonians, and Paul had to write a Second Letter, calming them down, telling them that day would NEVER COME UNTIL . . . many things had happened [See Scripture above]
Many of you have READ the New Testament 100 times (or 500 times!) , read many books on prophecy, and many more times The Olivet Discourse Scriptures of Matthew 24, Mark 13, & Luke 21, WITHOUT EVER HEARING & SEEING , Luke 21.8 . . .
. . . as CLEAR AS CAN BE! BEWARE!
Amazing Facts on Christ's Coming Back!
**FACT! Jesus is NOT coming back TODAY! (So let’s get busy and get some folks saved!)
**FACT! Jesus is NOT coming back TOMORROW! (So let’s get busy and start a Bible Study, Sunday School Class or Teen Group!)
**FACT! Jesus is NOT coming back THIS WEEK, this MONTH, this YEAR! (So let’s get busy and start a Christian School!)
**FACT! Jesus is NOT coming back THIS DECADE! (So let’s get busy and establish a nations full of Christians who elect Christian leaders who make Scriptural laws!)
**FACT! Jesus is NOT coming back DURING OUR LIFETIME - unless you live as long as Methuselah! . . .(So let’s get busy DUPLICATE the same thing in EVERY NATION ARE EARTH!)
More Amazing Facts on Christ's Coming Back!
**FACT! Jesus is NOT coming back UNTIL “All that He taught His Disciples, is taught to ALL people in ALL Nations, . . .
. . . teaching them to then OBSERVE [do] what they have been TAUGHT;
. . .JUST LIKE HE COMMANDED US TO DO! (So let’s get busy, and OBEY HIM!)
FACT: When all of Jesus Christ’s enemies have been subdued by the ‘Sharp Sword of His Word’ and put UNDER HIS FEET [Christ’s feet, as part of Christ’s body, are the least of HIS CHURCH!]
FACT: Then and ONLY then, will Jesus Christ return to physically dwell among His people! Though they REJECTED HIM the first time, they will RECEIVE Him with greatest Praise Adoration, and WORSHIP the next time!
FACT: So my Brothers and Sisters: We have a mega-amount of spiritual work to do . . . so let’s quit arguing over “Thee Anti-Christ” which does not exist’ - . . .
. . . [meantime "The Real Anti-Christs" have pretty-well taken over the school boards, city councils, and our governments at all levels];
And let's get a multitude saved in the USA and the western world, then GET THE WHOLE WORLD SAVED!
John 3:16 you have known all your life:
Now learn John 3:17 which is equally as grand!
For God SENT NOT His Son into the WORLD to condemn the WORLD [which many think God will do in some future mythical Armageddon] but that the WORLD MIGHT BE SAVED!
It is NOT God's GOAL to simply "torture everyone, kill everybody, and bow them to smithereens! Rather, He says He is NOT willing for any to perish, and He sent Jesus to SAVE THE WORLD, not to destroy it!
Likewise Jesus said: "For the Son of Man is NOT come to destroy men's lives, but to SAVE THEM!" Luke 18:10

As well as local Churches and Ministries in many lands, and various persuasions of Bible Believing Ministries
Obviously, all phases of Christianity do not agree doctrinally or politically and sometimes even disagree on the actual facts concerning a particular leader, nation or situation, hence there are well over 10,000 denominations extant.
Christ commanded us to NOT “strain at gnats” while “swallowing camels!” Yet the majority of denominations do this! Many groups will AGREE on 20 MAJOR Doctrines, DISAGREE on one MINOR doctrine, and DIVIDE because of the “Gant” in their relationship!
Does not Scripturally inform us indisputably that ”NOW we see through glass darkly!” I Cor 13:12
