Believe Christ, Not Man

Friday, September 17, 2021

Christ said “For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice” (John 18:37). Many Christians only hear Christ partly as their ears have turned to voices of the unbiblical dispensational pre-tribulation rapture. In essence those teachers say you can trust Christ but not exclusively, as they discard the testimony of Christ for the end-times, saying that Christ wasn’t speaking to the Church. But they lie. They exchange what Christ taught for man’s epiphany of a pre-trib rapture that’s based wholly in conjecture and assumptions. Their crafted avoidance of the truth that Christ gathers His elect “Immediately after the tribulation” (Matt. 24:29–31), is a lie to lead you to believe them rather than Christ. In this, deceived Christians ignore the testimony of Jesus Christ for the end-times, and they’re consequently unprepared for the 7-year tribulation!

The ungodly notion that Christ was not speaking to the Church but to unbelieving Jews when He said He gathers His elect “Immediately after the tribulation”, is an outright lie! Jesus said “what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!” (Mark 13:37). And, Jesus “was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matt. 15:24). But after His death, burial, resurrection and ascension to the Father and giving of the Holy Spirit, His ministry applied to both unbelieving Jews and Gentiles alike. But that’s where pre-trib rapture teachers twist God’s Word by creating ungodly divisions of believers, showing God to be partial to one above another. They divide the “one body” (Eph. 4:4) of God’s elect into groups. But truly “there is no partiality with God” (Rom. 2:11).

If you were to expose Satan’s ultimate goal, what would you say? If you said that “he does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy” (John 10:10), you would be right. But go a little deeper into that verse. It would thrill Satan to destroy, discredit or nullify the testimony of Christ for the end-times, because in so doing he can ensure that millions of Christians are unprepared to endure the long and difficult night of the tribulation like the five foolish virgins of Matt. 25:1–13. Aside from the destruction of mankind, Satan destroying the testimony of Jesus Christ is his high prize. And that’s exactly what Satan has done in the hearts and minds of millions of Christians who have been taught by false teachers to believe the pre-trib rapture. Sadly, many believers are too lazy to read God’s Word for themselves and prefer being led by the nose in those things that tickle their ears. And so what’s occurred is that they’ve allowed God’s Word for the end-times to be destroyed from before them by false teachers who care more about traditions of men than the inerrant and perfect Word of the Lord God. And that same problem plagued ancient Israel.

When Jesus said He gathers His elect “Immediately after the tribulation” (Matt. 24:29–31), do you view yourself as one of “His elect” or not? If you say “No” then you need to repent and confess your unbelief and be saved by true faith in the work of Christ at Calvary. If you say “Yes”, then you must renounce pre-tribulationism, believe Christ, and prepare to endure the seven-year tribulation until the resurrection rapture “at the last day” (John 6:40, 44, 54) when “the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first” (1 Thess. 4:16), “at the last trumpet” (1 Cor. 15:51–52), because “He [Christ] must remain in heaven until the time comes for God to restore everything” (Acts 3:21). And if you know anything about when God restores everything, you know that He does not restore everything before the tribulation, but only after the tribulation which is when Christ descends from heaven for the resurrection rapture! But that’s another inconvenient truth pre-trib teacher’s twist to their own peril, and to those who hear them.

Jesus taught only two resurrections, but dispensationalists say there are more but have no biblical evidence. Jesus said “the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves [meaning all humans from all ages who ever died] will hear His voice and come forth – those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation” (John 5:28–29). Those two resurrections occur in the same hour as Jesus taught “at the last day” (John 6:40, 44, 54). Even Martha, the sister of Lazarus understood the resurrection, see John 11:23–24. Dispensational pre-tribulationism twists Scripture into divisive and partial gatherings of God’s elect saints at different times. The Eph. 4:4 unity of the “one body” is altogether destroyed, and for the end-times dispensationalists further make “the word of God of no effect” (Mark 7:13).

This is fairly certain, pre-trib teachers will never change their hearts regardless of who says what, including even God’s Son who has already spoken on this matter very clearly. Even God cannot change their brazen hearts. When the world sees the two witnesses of Rev. 11:3 begin their 1,260 days of ministry in Jerusalem, which will indicate the final seven years of this age have begun, will that turn their hard hearts? It’s doubtful but remains to be seen, for their callous hearts say if we see the Antichrist, of whom Christ warned at Matt. 24:15, then we’ve missed the rapture! So neither the two witnesses of Rev. 11:3, nor the revelation of Antichrist at Matt. 24:15 will cause them to believe, because when Antichrist appears, they will vehemently deny that he is who he is, lest seeing him, they disprove their own corrupt dispensational pre-trib rapture theology.

Concluding this portion of the Letter addressing the delusional dispensational pre-trib rapture teaching vs the testimony of Christ, I offer this not-so-surprising headline by The Christian Post, revealing that “60% of adults under 40 say Jesus isn’t only way to salvation; equal to Buddha, Muhammad”. What might account for part of that unbelief? Indeed, the pre-trib destruction of the testimony of Jesus Christ for the end-times is among the ranking culprits creating unbelief! If Christ can’t be believed for the end-times, why should they believe He is the only way to God?!

Now for current events that directly impact you and every human living in the world today. Equally perilous to the well-being of humanity is the ever-increasing insanity of Joe Biden’s mandated vaccines. And all of it flies fully in the face of his earlier assertions that government would never mandate vaccines. Yet, today we see Biden’s reversal to totalitarian mandates of vaccinations…or is this just a cover up to deflect from his disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal that left thirteen U.S. and allied service members dead? It increasingly looks that way as several constitutional attorneys have disavowed Biden’s ability of enforcing such vaccine mandates.

You need to be informed and watch this short eight-minute video by Dr. Christina Parks, a Cellular and Molecular Biologist. She “explains that the ‘injections’ DO NOT and were never designed to prevent transmissions, only to attenuating symptoms of the alpha variant, which no longer exists.” The MSM loves to blame alt-media vaccine mis-information, but it’s actually Dr. Fauci and his puppet doctors who fear him for reprisals for disobedience, together with fear of Biden’s illegitimate U.S. government, who are the ones issuing vaccine mis-information.

From leohohmann.com watch the panel discussion with Dr. Judy Mikovits. The article states in part, “The goal of the mind-controllers is to create a mob mentality. They whip up mass hysteria, using the fear generated in this case by an invisible virus to manipulate and divide the public into two camps: The obedient and the disobedient. Then they incite the obedient to hate the disobedient…Even when the potion turns out to be a fraud, causing more people to get sick, the obedient ones await their next command from the same set of hypnotists: ‘Just take one more shot and it will offer the protection you are looking for. ‘Normal’ is just around the bend. Trust us. Trust the science.’” But ‘normal’ never returns, nor will it, for the end of this age is upon us.

And from israelnationalnews.com, it seems this slogan is now steadfastly marching around the world – “Our tolerance for the unvaccinated has run out”. That’s also what President Joe Biden said, though earlier promising he would never mandate vaccines! He’s proven himself to be a liar, untrustworthy, and unbelievable. Is it any wonder that over 100 million Americans do not believe their government? They’ve given us myriad reasons to disbelieve and distrust them all, not the least of which is vaccine propaganda lies, and the reckless increase of our national debt.
