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:

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).

Religious Cartoons for Kids Are Evil, Too
Religious Cartoons Are Evil for Kids, Too From: Sara To: The Path of Truth Sent: Saturday, October 08, 2016 12:27 PM Subject: Question on 2nd Commandment Hi Paul and Victor, I have been perusing your site- I found it while on a search to confirm what I was feeling about nativities and thank you for confirming that :). I have been thinking about all of this a lot. Having been raised Catholic but converting to Protestant when I was sixteen I still have many "traditions" that need to be undone.   My current question is this- I have many children's bibles for my 2 kids. I am finding all of them have drawings (cartoonish ones) of Jesus when the story mentions Jesus. One called "Jesus Calling" (given my my brother's family) even has a section after the story where "Jesus" talks about what was just read. I find that to be an abomination and have been torn on getting rid of it or marking through that section with a permanent marker because I think it does a good job telling the stories on a level the kids can understand (mine are 3 and 1). What are your thoughts? My other question is probably obvious. Are the depictions of Jesus in the children's bibles graven images?  If so how do I go about teaching the stories from the bible in a way they can understand- should I just use mine and then try my best to explain what it is saying in terms they understand? Thank you in advance!! Best, Sara From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Sara Sent: Wednesday, O...

Como cristiana, me entristecen todos ustedes. Tu desagradable parloteo es exactamente lo que aleja a los no creyentes del cristianismo.

Las personas que buscan la Verdad se vuelven a Cristo cuando ven nuestra exposición de falsos mesías como el Jesús artificial de Clayton. Ellos están muy agradecidos de que la luz haya llegado para cortar la oscuridad de la pretensión y confusión religiosa. Son los idólatras como tú quienes se ofenden y se apartan de la Verdad, “cristianos” paganos cuya Opinión es condenada por la Palabra de Dios hecha carne.  2 Corintios 11:13-15 RVG (13) Porque los tales son falsos apóstoles, obreros fraudulentos, que se disfrazan como apóstoles de Cristo. (14) Y no es de extrañar, pues aún Satanás se disfraza como ángel de luz. (15) Por tanto, no es de sorprender que sus servidores también se disfracen como servidores de justicia, cuyo fin será conforme a sus obras. ¿Qué te hace pensar que los falsos maestros, como menciona Pablo, no predican lo que parece ser el verdad...
Troubles Can Give Us True Faith
From: Eduardo To: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk Sent: Saturday, January 09, 2016 10:02 AM Subject: Please, a help in an urgent matter Victor, Paul, Today my wife created a really big trouble at home, with physical aggression, hidden equipment that are important for my work, and hiding my smartphone that is extremely necessary to my work (I give support to customers) She is again saying that I am doing many things I am not doing. While she keeps her sinful life mostly by internet. Until now I was being patient, however now I have to take care of my children, and since I got a new project that will help me greatly, I cannot afford to have more troubles. My children needs a better place to start their life. Since I want to obey the Lord, and every time more walk according His Will, I do not to hold what is not to hold. Sometimes is like giving my better to buy a ticket to travel on Titanic. I do not know the future and what is going to happen. Sentiments are betraying me, and besides I love her, I do not want to continue with this situation. Every day I am accused of things I am not doing, I have nothing to hide from anyone.  I need direction.
