FALSE PREACHER JACK IMPE WOULD NOT RESPOND TO MY CHALLENGE!

Posted by soldierservant on May 30, 2008

I wrote this to Jack Van Impe a month ago to which I never got a
reply. I guess he could not refute all the scriptures I brought up that
he either avoids or twists for his own purpose. I thought you might find
this interesting by seeing how what he says differs from the bible. This
proves that his teachings are not mere trivial differences, but outright
contradiction of scripture.
 

I know you teach that there is no end of the world as well as a
pretribulation rapture, both of which are not found in scripture. 2
Peter 3:10-13, “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The
heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by
fire, and the earth in everything it it will be laid bare. Since
everything will be destroyed this way, what kind of people ought you to
be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the
day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the
destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the
heat. But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new
heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.” Peter addressed this
to all the saints, not a post rapture remnant. Also you notice those
passages talk about certain destruction and that there will be a “new
heaven” and “new earth.” There would not need to be a new earth if this
one is not destroyed. Paul also confirms what Peter has said about the
day of the Lord in 1Thess.5:2,4. Nowhere is there mentioned that the
saints are to be aware of a mysterious rapture of the righteous but
totally the opposite. In Matt.24;9, Jesus promises that after the
beginning of birth pains that we would be handed over to be put to
death. In verse 10 says that many will turn from the faith, which is the
same rebellion or great apostasy mentioned in 2 Thess.2:3. If anything
it is the wicked servants that will be called to judgment first when the
tares and the chaff are first separated as indicated in verses 50-51 of
Matt.24. Then there is Revelation 20:4, “I saw thrones on which were
seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls
of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and
because of the word of God. They had not worshipped the beast or his
image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands.
They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.” This is
very clear that only the beheaded will reign with Christ. If these were
just  post rapture survivors then why would God reward those who weren’t
diligent over those who were? This pretrib rapture theory did not exist
before the 1800s. 1 Cor.4:6 admonishes “Do not go beyond what is
written.” It is a very dangerous place to be when we start adding to
God’s word or deliberately contradict it. I know you also teach that
after the thousand year reign of Christ that he will be recommissioned.
There is no such place in scripture. Only the opposite is stated as in
1Cor.15:24-28, “Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom
of heaven to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion,
authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies
under his feet. The last enemy to be detroyed is death. For he “has put
everything under his feet.” Now when it says “everything” has been put
under him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put
everything under Christ. When he has done this, then the Son himself
will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God
may be all in all.” Gal.1:8-9 says that if anyone who is preaching
another gospel is eternally condemned! Even back then there were many
false images of Christ. Any version of him that does not adhere to
scripture is not of God. Rev.22:15 also says that those who love and
practice falsehoods are damned to the lake of fire. Falsehoods would
definitely include believing stuff not taught in the bible (another
gospel). The danger of the pretrib rapture theory is that it causes many
to be complacent, thinking they will escape tribulation and when
persecution comes they will be unprepared and deny Christ because of
fear of man, which brings a trap. Gal.1:10, “Am I now trying to win the
approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were
still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.” So what
is popular is not necessarily right but actually quite the opposite.
Jesus talked about the broad path that leads to destruction in
Matt.7:13. All this departure from scripture being taught by many, such
as the one world religion of ecumenism (the broad path), is proof that
we are now living in the age of the great apostasy. I also know about
the verichip (mark of the beast). Who do you think will be able to
refuse that mark? Those who are prepared or those who think they will
escape by rapture, which is nothing but a lie of escapism? Just keeping
up with the news everyone knows we are living in the endtimes. Those who
are not willing to take up their cross or lay down their lives for the
gospel is not worthy of Christ.

John Birch Society: John Hagee Could Be Problem For John McCain!

Posted by soldierservant on May 28, 2008

More lies of Hagee about prophecy. Nowhere is it written what he said.
Nowhere does it say to make war on Iran to bring about the rapture. In
fact Jesus said woe to those who bring about the tribulation for whom it
goes through, but these things must happen. The only thing the bible
indicates that will speed his return is preaching the gospel to every
creature. If that is not on the heart of any professing christian, then
they do not know the heart of Christ and do not have the heart of
Christ. They are wicked servants that will be cut to pieces and assigned
with the hypocrites (Matt.24:51). War is not preaching the gospel. Any
who cannot understand this do not know Christ. How can such a lying
crackpot like Hagee have much of a following? That much that hate the
truth because if his followers knew God’s word they would have nothing
more to do with that liar! Churches like his will crack hell wide open,
with around 20,000 members. Hagee is the prime example of apostasy. The
evil men that pollute their bodies as mentioned in scripture.

The Rapture Is A Lie From Roman Catholic Margaret Mcdonald!

Posted by soldierservant on May 19, 2008

You know before how I told you I was brought up and believed most of my
life about the pretribulation rapture, or the secret rapture? Well I
have been giving it some serious thought and asked God to show me, and
sure enough, it is a total lie. I searched the scriptures and could not
find any supporting scripture for the pertribulation rapture. In fact
these are the kind of sriptures I found: 1 Thess.5:2, “for you know very
well that the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night.” Verse
4, “But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should
surprise you like a thief.” Then in 2 Peter 3:10 tells us what the day
of the Lord is, “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The
heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by
fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.” That really
leaves no room for doubt. After looking into more on the subject of the
pretrib rapture I find out that this did not exist before the 1800s. It
was a catholic woman, Margaret Mcdonald, that started this heresy. So to
me this is not a matter of opinions but heresy. That is not to say that
those who believe in the pretrib rapture are lost but are in danger of
being deceived and maybe lose their faith when they find out the
opposite. But those false teachers that emphatically promote this lie
are lost. They make up lies that are so obvious like the “falling away”
actually means “catching away.” Well that is a flat out attack on the
word of God and calling him a liar. We know that the falling away is
exactly how it sounds because this is not an isolated scripture as the
liars would have you believe because the apostasy that is the falling
away of 2 Thess.2:3 is supported by the very words of Jesus in
Matt.24:10. The liars leave so much out by omission. They’ll quote 1
Thess.4:16-18, to which there is no indication of a specific time, while
they don’t go on to the next chapter like those I mentioned before about
the day of the Lord. They also use scriptures about the church not being
appointed unto wrath. I guess they don’t understand the wrath of God
because His wrath is eternal. Here are other scriptures that pretribs
don’t want you to know about: Romans 8:18, “I consider that our present
sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed
in us.” Romans 8:35-39 talks about there being no suffering or death or
anything that shall separate us from the love of God. This proves that
there will be tribulation. Those who teach the lie know that they are
because they manipulate God’s word and omit so much. This is really no
different than the prosperity charlatans that use scriptures to justify
their false teachings and greed. I have written to one of these liars
and he could never answer any scriptures I brought up that proved his
lies wrong, but instead slandered me. That is the diversionary tactic of
liars and wolves. They can’t answer truthfully with scripture because
they know they are liars and so they just attack, exposing their true
hateful natures. Besides what I mentioned here was also Rev.20:4, which
clearly says that only the souls beheaded for Christ’s sake shall reign
with him. Well if the pretribs were right then that would have to mean
that Jesus rewards those who are left behind rather  than those who are
vigilant. You see that their lies make no sense at all. And of course
they love to condemn those who don’t believe like them to hell, proving
their hateful strifeful nature. Then some of these liars have claimed
that people’s faith are destroyed by the truth. If that does then they
were never in truth to begin with. Their faith was based upon a lie.
Only the truth sets people free. Jesus was clear that those who did not
want to take up their cross to follow him were not worthy of him. This
also shows such a lack of gratitude, being delivered from eternal
damnation, but yet cannot take a little persecution in this life, which
is such a small price by comparison. Jesus was also clear that the
wicked and lazy servant in his parable of the talents will not enter
God’s kingdom. The bible is clear that it is those who teach contrary to
God’s word are the strife sowers as mentioned in Romans 16:17, not those
who defend the sound doctrine of His word. Plus also all you have to do
is examine the fruits of those who teach the pretrib lies. Just like
this article here exposes all their wicked fruit. Even though I don’t
agree with everything in this it is right on in most cases. This proves
how apostate the condition of the church is. Besides this we also have
all these phony televangelists that are big time promoters of these lies
which is another nail in the coffin of the pretrib lie that is being
exposed. Most of them are globalists and newagers and are using these
lies for their own agenda. Jack Van Impe is now coming out and talking
about the reality of the mark of the beast. He seemed very worried over
it. Why would that be if he really believes in the pretrib lie? But I
have looked around and there are many like how I was that was not very
sure about this subject, but like me, a few are seeing the truth that
there is no evidence of a pretrib rapture. To those who are open there
is hope. But there is little hope for those who are sold out to a lie.
Those like these false teachers are the ones who really need to worry
because they may be the ones that Jesus will come back to cut to pieces
and sentence judgment upon as mentioned in Matt.24:50-51. Well if Jesus
comes back to execute judgment without warning that means there would
not be a heads-up by a massive disappearance of a secret rapture. This
pretrib lie seems to be the main catalist for the endtime apostasy.
Matt.24:39-41 compares the endtimes to the days of Noah in which he and
his family remained while the wicked were taken away by the flood. Using
that same context indicates that the missing ones were the wicked and
the righteous left behind, like the tares and chaff separated from the
wheat first. There is still a lot that I don’t fully understand, so I
don’t pretend to know it all, but I understand scripture that is as
plain as day. I believe the rapture of judgment is specifically the
hypocrites and false teachers and not the general godless masses. This
means that Jesus has less patience for the hypocrites than the heathens.
What I am not clear on is if it is a separate rapture or if it is the
same one as the righteous. In Matt.24:40-41 talks about those who taken,
but really doesn’t say how they are taken. It really doesn’t say they
will mysteriously disappear. So if everything taken into context by
comparison of the days of Noah, we know that the wicked didn’t
mysteriously disappear but were killed by the flood. So now for the
hypocrites may just be taken as in deaths and not disappearances. Paul
said that it is appointed unto man one time to die and then the
judgment. This proves that a call to judgment may very well be in the
form of deaths. This also reminds me of Bishop Earthquake Kelley’s
message about false teachers dropping dead in these last days. Well, I
guess it is impossible to know everything and how it will all go down.
The important thing is to live a blameless life in the eyes of God so
there will be no shame when standing in His presence.

On The Secret Rapture Heresy

A Testimony of Jesus Christ: Millennial Sacrifices

Posted by soldierservant on April 29, 2008

This was what I was referring to some time ago when I had questions about
this. It does seem that there will be a reestablishment of sacrifices in
the new millennium. But this is not to be confused with that dual
covenant theology because this is in the future and not now. Nor does it
replace Christ but done in rememberance. The whole endtimes/rapture
subject gets really confusing. You get both extremes; those who think
they will escape the tribulation that Jesus himself promised, and those
who who don’t believe pretrib rapture but also don’t believe in the
literal 1,000 year reign of Christ. Of course you are aware of the
scriptures used by the pretrib rapture people,Rev.3:10, |Thess.4:16, and
so on. None of these verses tell exactly when this will happen. Because
all the charlatan preachers seem to be 100% pretrib is very telling that
it is a false assumption and not biblical at all. I also see the fruit
of their divisiveness because they label anyone who don’t believe as
they do as anti-rapture, which is a total lie. I know there is a rapture
because there are so many scriptures to back it up but they do not say
before tribulation. I also know the excuse they use for those who face
hardships. They say it is those who are converted to Christ after the
rapture, but if the Holy Spirit is taken from the earth in that time
then how can anyone be saved? No one can come to God lest He draw them.
Also Jesus would have made it clear if that was the case. He would’ve
said that the remaining believers who didn’t make the rapture would face
persecution, but he doesn’t. Also how can there be a great falling away
from the faith if all the christians are raptured? You mean they’d have
us believe that those who get saved after the rapture will fall away?
That makes no sense at all. But I also believe in a literal 1,000 year
reign of Christ because of all the exclusive details limited to that
period, such as the reestablished sacrifices, which are not being done
now. Amillenialists believe that 1,000 years is figurative and that
Satan is locked up now. What do you believe about Christ’s millenial
reign? But of course like all the godless hypocrites they love to
condemn all to hell that don’t believe as they do. That is not in the
spirit of Christ and is a hateful divisive spirit. These hateful
divisive neocon religious right get what they deserve in a divisive
McCain, They are reaping what they sow. I don’t condemn any for what
they believe about the rapture or the new millennium, but where their
heart is at. Hey, I have no problem being raptured before the
tribulation, if there is any truth to that because the sooner I can be
with Christ the better. But those who teach such is obvious as to what
motivates them. I don’t even know if they themselves truly beleve it,
since many are imposters, but I bet it makes them a lot of $$$$. But
just what I gather from Matt.24:50-51 almost seems to indicate a rapture
of hypocrites to judgment. I know you never hear this anywhere and
cannot understand why this is never discussed anywhere. I look all
through the internet and cannot really find anything substantiative on
the subject. They just generalize about judgment of the wicked. That
will not happen till the battle of Armageddon, so there is no rapture of
the wicked as is defined by those given over to the BEAST and with his
mark. Jesus was talking about the wicked servant. Well we know that the
lost are no servants of Christ so that would not apply to them. This is
what must be the removal of the tares. This is supposedly before the
rapture of the true saints. But nobody, and I mean NOBODY, seems to get
this. Whenever they talk about the tares they generalize that as the
lost, but that scripture is clear that it is NOT. Same thing about the
separating of the sheep from the goats in Matt.25. That is not talking
about separating christians from heathens but separating the true saints
from the false saints. Maybe the rapture will be both and when the
separation occurs. But even in this gets confusing. Like do the goats
take the mark of the beast. Maybe one doesn’t have to take the mark to
be damned because why would there be those who think they are saved as
in Matt.7:21-23 if they had taken the mark? This scripture even points
out that just using Jesus name in performing miracles will not save them
because of their wicked hearts and deeds. That is how these goats have
everyone fooled because people are simpleminded and think that anyone
that uses Jesus name must be genuine. Also those who take the mark would
not be able to use Jesus name. At least I would think so. And when Jesus
shows up at the second coming the wicked will mourn and be in fear. Well
it seems apparent that hypocrites are deceived all the way up to the
time of their judgment when they plead before him. Even the wicked know
when their time is up but the hypocrites don’t. But like about the place
in Revelation when the fifth seal is broken those demonic locusts from
the ABYSS are given the command to only attack those who do not have the
seal of God on their foreheads. It didn’t say to attack those with the
mark of the beast. I also noticed that in the description says that they
were like horses ready for battle, but it really doesn’t say they are
the size of horses even though that is what is commonly perceived. Just
like in aquatic marine life there are seahorses, which are nowhere near
the size of real horses. But still even at the size of regular locusts
would be a really odd phenomenon and what they do, but yet there are
some who think that the sixth seal has already been broken. How so if
the fifth has not been broken yet? Also some say that the Abyss is a
watery pit. Well these locust creatures are not coming from the water.
Smoke doesn’t come from water. Well I know this all gets confusing and
sorry if I burdened you with all this. It is just amazing that nobody
can seem to take God’s word for what it says and always have to put
their spin on it. Is there no fear of God among those who claim to be
His?

Thoughts On The Christian Rapture

Posted by soldierservant on November 13, 2007

The rapture is really a confusing issue.I do lean towards the pretrib
rapture,not just because I have been taught that all my life,but because
it makes the most sense.God’s word says that the righteous are not
appointed unto wrath.I believe that the fallen christians will be left
behind.I forget the text now but Jesus said to make sure to be counted
worthy to escape those things to come.In other words those who live
right for God He will take them out of this mess.The antichrist cannot
take over till the true christians are gone.Remember Jesus said that he
gives us power over all the power of the enemy.Jesus also said that we
are the salt of the earth.Why did he call us salt?Because salt
preserves.If the true christians go through the GREAT TRIBULATION then
we are preserving nothing because this world at that time will be a
literal hell.Of course there will be christians in the Great Tribulation
due to either the lukewarm (powerless) or new converts to the faith that
have not bowed or taken the mark.I have heard from several sources about
there being two raptures.I know I have sent you some links in the past.
Perry Stone is good at explaining the end times.He says that the rapture
is the firstfruits.I know there are others that say the opposite about
the tares being gathered first,but that really doesn’t make sense
because Revelation is clear that the wicked will be here towards the
very end of the Great Tribulation when Jesus comes back to slay the
wicked kings and their armies in the battle of Armageddon,so the wicked
will not be taken from this world before christians.Now just because
there may be phonies that try to use this doesn’t deny the validity of
it.They will always take God’s word out of context for their own selfish
agendas.That is how the enemy makes convincing lies by using
halftruths.The only thing that we as christians should be doing to
encourage the rapture is to to reach as many souls as we can and to
continue to walk blameless before Him.We can’t bring about His promise
by starting wars.This is pure nonsense and heresy.This is contrary to
His will.Jesus said that he has come to save the lost,not destroy
them.Christians need to be more indignant towards spirital lies than
mere carnal treachery.I always hear soldiers in this war say that they
love this country so much that they are willing to do anything for
it.This is proof of idolatry.There is no mention about love for
God.Besides even if they truely cared so much about our country then why
are they not opposed to the treacherous scumbags like Bush that are
destroying this country?This country will be destroyed from within,not
from without. They are all liars and hypocrites and will get what they
deserve. Of course we hear all those who defend this scam of a war say
that we must fight treachery and evil wherever it exists.Well besides
our own country everywhere else is run by tyrants and dictators.Iraq is
nothing more special than the evil of Russia.In fact they are the power
behind these terrorists.All these fools are so easily distracted by this
BAIT & SWITCH technique.It seems we will lose just out of pure
stupidity.Just like James Madison said that if tyranny or oppression
ever comes to this nation it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign
enemy.We are our own enemy.This is not to deny the terrorist threat
because it is real,but it is only a symptom of a deeper problem.Just
look at the moral decay of the family structure.The church has had their
part in this too.So many crimes against children are coming from
stepfathers.This is proof that God is not for all this remarriage.There
is so much blasphemy in the church.They spit on the vows to God such as
marriage and treat it like dirt.Even religious leaders divorce their
spouse and say that God told them to in order to marry someone else.Such
a message is not from God,but their father,the devil.This is not just
sin against man but sin against God.To just casually break a vow made to
Him is proof of rebellion against God and His principles.This rampant
blasphemy is conducted by the likes of those on TBN.Also,the whole
public education system is ungodly and corrupting all the youth.Not just
from all the lies they teach but from peer pressure that always leads to
sin as well as bullies.Also all the increase of violence and drugs.I
think they should shut down all the public schools because that is the
biggest waste of taxpayer money ever.They spend endlessly on education
but get nowhere.Who are these idiots that think they know more than God
that they can refuse to teach His word?God’s word is the beginning of
wisdom.It is no wonder that the children come out of school stupid
because they are denied God’s word.What do you expect?We are reaping
what we have sown. God has and always will be the only solution.I am
positive and optimistic in the things of God.I am negative and
pessimistic in anything else aside from God.So positive and negative is
not a mental state but whether or not you choose to obey God determines
which you are.There is hope for those who choose God and only doom for
those who don’t.Those who truly follow God will have His interests at
heart.They will not make excuses for sin,such as the rampant
abortion.They will not ignore blasphemy from within the church.They will
not follow after ungodly leaders as many that claim the faith do.By
their fruits we will now them.It is only the straight and narrow and
much of the church is the broad path that leads to destruction.People
need to flee any church that is not teaching the truth of God’s word or
else they will partake in their judgment.
