Rapture Doctrine Is Strange, Unworthy of Consideration

I love your website. Please keep up the good work. 

I don’t know how long ago you posted the article on Doug Hamp, but I want to comment. 

 I agree that this man is a false teacher for many reasons, but I disagree with the two reasons you selected to debunk him. The sons of God were angels, just check Job.  Also, Enoch is quite clear and elucidating on this, if you believe in Enoch, as I do.

Jude referred to Enoch as a prophet. Second Peter bolsters Enoch.  The bible is littered with phrases right out of Enoch.  

Secondly, the reason so many Christians argue about pre or post tribulation rapture, is because there is great evidence for both.  Unfortunately, people take one side or the other, when in fact if prophecy is fulfilled there will be two raptures; first for the elect and then for those who will come through fire.  

The prospect of prophecy being fulfilled doesn’t look good because it was supposed to happen in the generation of Jesus, but it didn’t, so something else might happen.  Also, many prophecies of the Old and New Testaments remain unfulfilled, which supports the idea that we just might have a different ending that spelled out in the Bible.

Thanks,

Hugh

Hi Hugh, 

You write: 

The sons of God were angels, just check Job.

Nothing in Job says that – you’re reading into the text.    

Also, Enoch is quite clear and elucidating on this, if you believe in Enoch, as I do.

The only quote in the Bible attributed to Enoch is in Jude, and it says nothing about angelic beings being the sons of God. On the contrary, it says the opposite: 

“Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men, saying, ‘Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment against all, and to convict all the ungodly among them about all their ungodly deeds which they have committed impiously, and about all the harsh words which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him’” (Jude 1:14-15 EMTV).

As for your thoughts on prophecy and “the rapture,” they’re carnal, a product of man’s thinking and unbelief. You say: “The prospect of prophecy being fulfilled doesn’t look good because it was supposed to happen in the generation of Jesus, but it didn’t, so something else might happen.” Maybe you worded that poorly, but whatever you’re saying here is very wrong. Things aren’t left to chance. God is Sovereign and everything is unfolding as He has decreed and foretold.  

You also say: “Secondly, the reason so many Christians argue about pre or post tribulation rapture, is because there is great evidence for both.  Unfortunately, people take one side or the other, when in fact if prophecy is fulfilled there will be two raptures; first for the elect and then for those who will come through fire.

ALL children of God come through fire and tribulation, without which, their salvation can’t be complete. On this, the Word of God is clear:

“For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt” (Mark 9:49 MKJV).

“John answered all, saying, I indeed baptize you with water, but He Who is mightier than I comes, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to loose. He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire” (Luke 3:16 MKJV).

“And preaching the Gospel to that city, and having made many disciples, they returned to Lystra and Iconium and Antioch, confirming the souls of the disciples, calling on them to continue in the faith and that through much tribulation we must enter into the Kingdom of God” (Acts 14:21-22 MKJV).

We hope you will take these words to heart for your salvation, Hugh. 

“Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein. We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle” (Hebrews 13:9-10 KJV).

The Law and What Church to Attend
From: Chris To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, October 25, 2016 2:23 AM Subject: Law n Grace Hello I stumbled out into your website Thank you for it. My name is Chris I am in England, I am a recovered alcoholic by His Grace. I'm due to marry a wonderfull girl who to God has brought into the light of life. I'm confused between all this law and grace teaching, in the sense of which way to go ? We both done the 12 steps off AA a couple of years ago. Now I know there is error there. God opened my eyes. But ever since Christ removed the sin in our life and cleared us out. We have been trying to be settled in a church. We have attended a Sabbath congregation ? But they kept law and feasts. But you will have to correct me here if needs be.... Didn't Hebrews say the old has gone ? Also didn't yeshua nail all the ordinances to the cross ?? Our heads are up the wall with this. Sunday church just doesn't preach truth at all. It's disheartning to us that we can't find a church that preaches bible. God give me the harlot in proverbs about church. But we just want to do right in His eyes Godbless and plz respond to this At wits end From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Chris Sent: Sunday, October 30, 2016 7:49 AM Subject: Re: Law n Grace Hi Chris, Good to hear about how the Lord helped you stop drinking.  Regarding your questions about law and grace, have you red our article, Law and Grace?

Where Do Sinners Go When They Die?
From: Tyrone To: The Path of Truth Sent: Saturday, February 13, 2016 10:50 PM Subject: Hell Since you guys don't believe hell is eternal torment, then where do you think sinners will go, and what will happen to them? Like all the hall of false prophets you have on your website, where in the bible it states they receive much greater condemnation. What do you guys think happens them?  From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Tyrone Sent: Thursday, February 18, 2016 7:11 AM Subject: Re: Hell Sinners are in hell, Tyrone. Hell is a spiritual place of darkness, where people are cut off from the Lord – the Light of All Men. But the state of hell isn’t an end unto itself, as taught by counterfeit Christianity and believed by you.  Read The State and Fate of Hell and The Great Promise of the Lake of Fire and the Second Death. The Lord said to the false teachers of His day: “Serpents! Offspring of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell?” (Matthew 23:33 MKJV) The scribes and Pharisees were in hell - otherwise, they could have escaped its condemnation – do you see?   So what happens to those who receive greater condemnation? They’ll have to face the greater consequences of their culpability, just as a criminal with a more severe offense serves a greater sentence.   Here’s an example the Lord gave: “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the powerful acts which were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repen...
The Healing of Anxiety
From: Shanu To: Victor Hafichuk Sent: Monday, July 18, 2016 11:37 AM Subject: Healing Hello i am a Christian. I would like to get closer to God. I am having anxiety and fear. The more i check for answers the more confused i am. One person  said God doesn't relive anxiety.  What can I do to get healing. Thanks for helping me. God bless you.  From: Victor Hafichuk To: Shanu Cc: Paul Cohen Sent: Wednesday, July 20, 2016 6:47 AM Subject: Re: Healing Shanu, For now: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which passes all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7 MKJV).  “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You; because he trusts in You” (Isaiah 26:3 MKJV).  Read and read at our site. Here’s why: “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32 MKJV).  “Therefore if the Son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed” (John 8:36 MKJV).  Read Acceptance. \/
