In The Evening Time There Shall Be Light
Tribulation Is A Night
But The Saints Will Be Victorious
In the World ye shall have tribulation: But
be of good cheer;
I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD!
By G. Reckart, Pastor
The Whole New Testament was written by men on the run for their lives and who were in persecution and tribulation (Acts 11:9; Revelation 1:9). Those of you who deny the Church will go through tribulation, WHY DO YOU READ THEIR BOOK!
"Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened and the moon shall not give her light, and the powers of heaven shall be shaken:
And then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn (wail see Revelation 1:7), and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory (Matthew 24:29-30)."
If you have been told the Church will escape the coming tribulation, you have not been told the truth.
If you have been told that God does not want a Bride that has gone through tribulation and is all bloody and beaten, you have heard a Preacher preparing you to receive the trinity doctrine veiled in the pre-tribulation rapture theory.
Since the time of Jesus, scholars estimate that the number of people persecuted, injured, and killed for their faith in Messiah may be as high as twenty five million. The Jews started this persecution and killing. This spirit was carried to the Gentiles by several accounts of urging and complaints by the Jews (Acts13:50; Romans 8:36; 1Thessalonians 2:15). The Gentiles then became experts in how to persecute and kill. The Catholic Church used this method over alleged heritics and persecuted and killed many. The Catholic Church is responsible for killing more people than Stalin, Hitler, and Mao. The question must be asked of the Pre-Tribs, Mid-Tribs, Pre-Wraths, and Pan-Tribs: Are these who died for their faith so ugly, bloody, and beaten that Jesus no longer wants them in his Bride Church because of it? Then why does this stupid saying that God will not have a Bride that is all bloody and beaten continue from ignorant mouths?
The pre-trib secret snatch as a split return from the coming of Jesus at the end of the tribulation was first introduced by a Jesuit priest named Manuel Lacunza (1731-1801), in his book: "La Venida de Mesias" which was translated from Spanish to English by Edward Irving in 1827. Irving started preaching the return of Jesus was now split into two parts or phases as Lacunza had written. John Darby, a member of the Plymouth Brethren, picked up the doctrine and with help from Masonic and Jewish teachings formed the doctrine of dispensationalism.
Then in 1830, a thirteen year old girl named Margaret McDonald, in Port Glasglow, Scotland, prophesied that those baptized in the Spirit would be raptured before the antichrist and a second group would be raptured at the end of the tribulation. Jewish teachings were then introduced about a delayed and future Kingdom and a time when God would return to the Jews, and "boom," out of this mess came the new doctrine we now know as "Jacob's Trouble." Or seven years of tribulation for Israel. But was not Jacob's trouble to be seventy years according to Jeremiah 29 and 30? Don't you dare detach chapter 29 from chapter 30. Such is handling the Word of God deceitfully.
Up to at least 1885 the Baptist of America held dispensationalism as a heresy equal to Mormonism. It was not until around 1900 that Harry Ironside, visiting the Ireland prophecy conferences in Powerscourt brought back the false doctrine and converted Clarence Larkin and C.I. Scofield. Clarence Larkin drew the charts and C.I. Scofield had Oxford to print a new Bible with swindled oil well money with this false doctrine as footnotes. Those who use the Scofield Bible have now made those footnotes the Word of God.
Up until John Darby modifed Masonic teachings, Jewish teachings, the teachings of Manuel Lacunza, and added his own theories, there is absolutely no mention in all of Church history of such a perposterous false doctrine.
Dispensationalism at its very core teaches that the Church ends in defeat and escheats to the devil. It teaches that God was defeated six times over the seven dispensations. Each time foiled by the devil and man, God had to devise something new and a replacement. However, when they get to the end of dispensation number five, they change their *replacement* doctrine and say the New Covenant and the Church do not replace the Law and Israel. So at the center of dispensationalism is the idea that Israel has an unfulfilled covenant in Abraham that must be finalized. Dispensationalist deny Galatians 3:29 that *all* the promises of Abraham are fulfilled in Jesus Messiah and in the New Covenant. And don't write to me that the New Covenant is the Old Covenant just written in the heart. Such is simply a false doctrine. Don't write and tell me that the New Covenant does not come until the millennial, that also is a false doctrine. Jesus clearly said in regards to the Cup of Communion that it was the New Covenant or New Testament in his blood. The old Covenant was done away on Calvary. It is FINISHED, ...PERIOD there is no debate on that issue it is settled! Read Hebrews 8:6-9. And law-keepers, please do not write to me that the Apostle Paul was a reprobate to justify your trying to be Jew ish (Noahideism), through bondage to abolished Law.
To make this unbelievable tale of dispensational false doctrine appear valid, dispensationalist need a way for Jews to be saved apart from Messiah if the Church takes a secret air-ride out. If the Church age ends at the second coming of Messiah, then the Jews must be saved by some other method. How could they figure that out?
So they hunted for some scheme to make it work. And going to Daniel's 70th week they found what they believed was an easy answer. They would teach that God the Father would not let God the Son nail all the Law to the Cross. So the last seven years of the Law had to be taken down off the Cross so the Law would not be totally abolished. This was the solution they sought. Yes, they discovered a clever way to get millions to believe their lie of Jacob's Trouble. What blasphemy are they guilty of for doing this? Can such a liars be saved? I am strong with my language because such behaviour needs firm reproving (read John 8:55 on the use of the word *liar*). The 70th week of Daniel had to be separated from the former 69 weeks by a large gap of 2,000 years. This they called the *great parenthesis,* ...the valley between two mountain top prophecies concening Israel (the first mountain the first comming and the second mountain the second comming. All events in between are said to be secret and hidden. This false doctrine needs exposed also. For if everything between the 69th and 70th week is secret and hidden, this includes the entire Ministry of Jesus and all of his three and one half years as Messiah. Any babe just come to Jesus knows this was not a secret hidden in the Old Testament. In fact the very Church (the Kingdom), was not a secret in the Old Testament. What was the mystery (Colossians 1:26-27)? Only that the Gentiles would be *EQUAL* heirs with the Acts 2:38 saved Jews in the Kingdom of God and, as children and receipients of the promises of Abraham, in Messiah. So why did they need to take seven years of the Law down from the Cross?
But they had to do it to make their lie of Jacob's Trouble so convincing. They took seven years of the Law away from the nail-scared hands of Jesus. When Jesus said it was finished, they suggest he lied or made a mistake. They infer by their teachings, all of the Law was finished except for the last seven years. They suggest that Jesus must have forgot, and in his pain said it was finished, but he should have said: *IT'S ALMOST FINISHED.* You be the judge of such heresy.
It is these seven years taken down from the Cross that is shoved at the end of the Church age (the 2,000 year long toes of Larkin's image) and then call it Jacob's Trouble. This Law time period off the Cross by dispensationalist allows for the Jews to return back to animal sacrifices. With animal blood again accepted by God the Father, the Jews do not need the blood of Jesus for salvation. With the Law restored for seven years, the Temple can be rebuilt and a new rip-proof vail hung up. A new Pharisee-Talmudic priesthood could be established. And wow, even the red heifer is a needed new commodity. It is reported that a Minister in Georgia who raises these golden calves (money-making), actually goes out and prays for them that they might be humble. Some say they have felt the Spirit of God by just touching these holy calves. And out of the crevices of time come the hunters for the lost Ark (Something Jesus and the Apostles did not do because they knew where it was: Revelation 11:19). All of these events are tied to the seven years of Law taken down from the Cross. Was all the Law finished at Calvary? Was seven years really taken down from the nail-scared hands of the Saviour? Did Jesus really lie when he said: *It is Finished* speaking of the Law and his supreme sacrifice? If the 70th week was not taken from the Cross, then did it not continue on right in succession after the previous week (69th)? Did not the 70th week start in the beginning of the Ministry of Messiah? And did not the animal sacrifices cease in the middle of this week when Jesus was crucified (Daniel 9:27)?
Dispensationalism is designed totally to get Jews saved without need of obeying Acts 2:38 and trusting in Jesus as the Messiah. This is true because dispensationalist are now preaching that the Jews of the time of Jacob's Trouble will be saved by the new Pharisee-Talmudic Priesthood and Law-keeping, and they do not need to believe in Jesus or obey Acts 2:38. Some hint that the Jews will be saved at the moment they see Jesus in the sky and believe upon him. But is this not false. Since where is just believing salvation? What about repentance, water baptism, and being filled with the Spirit to enter the Kingdom (John 3:3-5; Acts 2:38)? And at the appearing of our great God and Saviour, is it not to late for this? Is dispensationalism a fabrication? Is it not a doctrine to excuse people for being antichrist and reviling the blood of Jesus as bastard blood (born of fornication), all the way up till they see him? The fact that they were not *caught up* is the fact that they are lost. For then the Scriptures say that all the tribes of the earth who are lost shall wail (Revelation 1:7).
When the idea of saving the Jews with some method other than New Testament salvation is rebuked and shown to be false, the whole scheme to get the Church out of the tribulation period evaporates. When the 70th week of Daniel is taken from them and placed back upon the Cross, where is their seven year period of Jacob's Trouble? Where is their lie that God returns back to animal sacrifices? Where is their doctrine Israel can continue to call the precious blood of Jesus bastard blood and be saved by red heifers (golden calves)? Where is their doctrine that God accepts a revived Pharisee-Priesthood of the Law? If the blood sacrifices are not accepted, why would God care according to dispensationalism, if the *Pope* or some other person stopped them? And where is their doctrine that God puts the Pope in hell for stopping holy blood sacrifices? When these doctrines are proven false, the Jews are required to be in the Acts 2:38 Church, and if in the Church, then the Church must be here during the coming tribulation for them to get into it. And if the Church is here and the elect (1Peter 1:2), then the antichrist or man of sin (satan's highpriest), would be against such converted Jews and the remaining Gentiles in it. And this being true, the tribulation is for the Church (the elect), all the way from Calvary to the Second Coming.
Below is the false doctrine as best any dispensationalist has ever laid it out. See if you believe this false prophet? See if what he says is Apostolic Truth or clearly a false doctrine? And for the Apostolics: HOW CAN ANY OF YOU KNOWINGLY CONTINUE TO PREACH A THREE-GOD DOCTRINE VEILED IN THE PRE-TRIB RAPTURE DOCTRINE? HOW CAN YOU EVER GO BACK TO DISPENSATIONALISM? You will need to get un-brain-washed and get back to the simplicity of the Scriptures and believe Jesus alone.
The following tract was entitled: THE REAPER IS COMING, by John D. DeHann:
"Although the Pre-Tribulation rapture is not specifically and clearly taught in the Scriptures, it is nevertheless a Divine truth. Like the Trinity doctrine, which needed nearly three hundred years to come to its full development and acceptance, the Pre-Trib doctrine was not revealed for hundreds of years. In fact, the first mention of a Pre-Trib rapture and a theological argument for its truth was around 1830. It was from this humble beginning in England, that God the Father revealed the new revelation of Dispensational truth. We may point proudly to John Nelson Darby, as the Minister chosen of God to develop the system of interpretation as we now believe it. The doctrine is a reinterpretation of ancient Jewish Messianism. Right now, God has rejected the Jews because of their evils. But, he will bring the postponed Kingdom when they forsake their sins. In fact, if the Jews were to forsake their sins right this very moment, God the Father would stop everything and usher in the Kingdom. Because of their refusal and delay, a time-gap was created. Into this gap of eternity, the mystery of the salvation of the Gentiles is revealed. A proper interpretation then of prophecy and Scripture is founded in how God is dealing with the Jews. God's focus is the Jews, never the Church. The Jews are the eternal elect and chosen of God. The Church is not the elect or chosen of God. The only reason the Gentiles may be saved, is owing to God the Father delaying the Kingdom until the Millennial, and allowing God the Son to slip in and get a wife while Israel is in blindness. The Kingdom was postponed because the Jews rejected it when it was offered to them. But in the 70th week of Daniel that is future, this all changes. God the Father gets his wife back. First however, he must now get God the Son and the Church off the scene. This is a mystery of the Trinity and the basis of the Pre-Trib Rapture doctrine. Any man who denies these wonderful truths is a heretic and to be rejected. If any come not bearing this message, it is because they are antichrist. Since 1830, the revelation of the work of the Trinity in Dispensational Truth has spread throughout the world.
I confess proudly, that Dispensationalism is the true interpretation of Bible prophecy. First, because it teaches the doctrine of the Trinity, without which it would certainly collapse. Second, because it proves the Father and the Son are two separate persons and have two separate programs in the earth and eternity. Third, because it teaches the divine truth that God the Father is in an unconditional Covenant with Israel, and that the Law is not ended, only suspended or postponed until the 70th week begins. Fourth, because God the Son is now redeeming his wife, the Church, and soon this hidden mystery will be finished. Fifth, God the Father will be reunited with the Jews during the 70th week and will save all Israel; not by the blood of Christ, but by restored animal sacrifices. Remember beloved, if the seventieth week was postponed, then it is a week of seven years of the Law Dispensation not nailed to the cross. This authorizes animal sacrifices for salvation and God the Father's return to Israel through the old Law. Those who deny this doctrine are usually anti-Semitic. Anyone who denies God the Father still has a Covenant with Israel is an anti-Semite. Anyone who denies Israel still has an unfulfilled Covenant in Abraham without regard to Christ, is an anti-Semite.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU MISS THE RAPTURE
There is seven years between the rapture and the setting up of the Millennial Kingdom. Those who miss the rapture can only be saved two ways. #1. join the Jews religion and seek to come to the Father by the mercy of animal sacrifices or, #2. Refuse to take the mark of the Beast and have your head cut off by antichrist, and be saved by the shedding of your own blood. The blood of Christ will not save you if you miss the rapture. Only the blood of animals sacrificed by a Jewish high priest or the shedding of your own blood can then save you. You can miss this awful time by accepting the Lord as your Savior today.
MILLIONS WILL BE MISSING
The rapture is the blessed hope of believers. You can escape the terrible destruction that is soon to come upon the world by repentance and coming to Christ. Accept the Lord today as your personal Savior and be ready for the rapture that can happen any moment.
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first (1Thes. 4:16).
You do not need to do anything to be lost. Mankind is born in a lost condition. Sin inherited in the blood, defiles all of us. We are born sinners. Because of this, God the Father had to place a pure blood cell in Mary, so God the Son could have sinless pure blood to sacrifice for us on Calvary. Each of us need the cleansing power of the sinless blood of Christ, to wash away our sins: past, present, and future. Once you believe upon the Lord Jesus Christ, you will have unconditional eternal security, no man can then pluck you out of God's hand. You can have assurance of salvation right now and never fear again of missing the rapture.
GOD THE SON MUST GET THE CHURCH OUT.
What is holding back God the Father from returning fully to Israel? How come God the Father has not revealed the location of the lost Ark? Why is it taking so long to find a pure red heifer? How come the Temple Mount has not been recovered and the new Temple built? All of these dear ones, are what is withholding the Father from returning to Israel. The real hindrance to God the Father's plan with Israel, is the presence of the Church in the world. The presence of the Church in the world hinders God the Father. It is the apostate Catholic Church and the Pope, the abomination that maketh desolate, the great whore, who is also hindering God the Father from returning to Israel. When God the Son gets his wife safely out, God the Father will delay no longer and the apostate Church will be in for the wrath of God. Whoever fights against Israel will have God the Father to contend with!
DISPENSATIONALISM AND THE TRINITY
One of the greatest mysteries of all ages is the blessed Trinity. Although it is not found in the Bible, we accept it by faith, because the Church can not explain the relationships of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, any other way. It was not until the Church discovered Plato and his pluralistic unity in the oneness of the cosmic soul, that the Church discovered a way to clearly explain the relationship of the three separate persons in the holy Trinity. The three persons in the Godhead are separate and distinct, but they are one God in unity as the cosmos is many but one. God the Son is the person of the Trinity who is now getting his bride-Church out of the earth. God the Father has his program with Israel now on hold until God the Son gets his wife out of the way. Israel is the wife of God the Father and the Church is the wife of God the Son. Do not despair my beloved, God the Holy Spirit will get his wife in a new creation. The unity of the holy Trinity will always be the equality of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. When God the Son gets the Church safely in the New Jerusalem, God the Father can resume his dealings with Israel. At present, God the Holy Spirit is working in unity and harmony with God the Son and God the Father, aiding them in obtaining their Covenant partners for all eternity. Right now, the Holy Spirit is aiding God the Son to get the Church ready for the rapture. When the times of the Gentiles is over, and the restrainer (the Holy Spirit), has completed his work on behalf of God the Son and the Church, the rapture will occur and we are out of here, ...hallelujah!
70TH WEEK BEGINS AND ENDS.
"Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy (Dan. 9:24)."
This time period concerns no one but Israel. The true messianic interpretation of these verses deal not with Christ or the Church but with Israel. Israel is the focus of these messianic predictions, therefore they can not apply to Christ or the Church. Even the Messiah when he came, did not come during any of this time period, but in a gap (the great parenthesis) between the 69th and the 70th week.
Israel had sinned against the Lord's Covenant. According to the word of Moses, when they did this, they would be carried captive to other nations. However, if they would turn toward Jerusalem and pray, God the Father would hear their prayers and restore them to their land and the Covenants.
This happened in 606 BC. Israel was carried captive to Babylon. During this interval of time, God the Father tried to get his wife back. He then gave the time period of seventy weeks to accomplish this. When he saw the seventy weeks were running out, he revealed a mystery hid in the Trinity for ages, that God the Son would also have a covenant wife. So, God the Father stopped the time clock of weeks and God the Son became incarnate at Bethlehem to get his wife, the Church. As Brothers Larkin and Pentecost have said, a Wife and a Bride are two different things. God the Son gets his Bride during the Church Dispensation. When that time period is over, the seventieth week begins and God the Father turns back to his wife Israel. God the Father turned back to Israel in 1948. Now we know the rapture can be any minute. The secret coming of Christ at the midnight hour is upon us beloved. Remember, he comes before the tribulation, the seventieth week, "for" his saints. The seventieth week ends with the destruction of the antichrist (the Pope), for stopping the sacrifices in the Temple, for damning Jews by making them take the mark of the beast, and for sitting in the Temple as God.
READY OR NOT HERE COMES THE REAPER
Beloved, if you are a sinner and you have not trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, do so right now. The time may well come when you will not get this opportunity again. You can be saved and know you are on your way to heaven, if you will come to the Savior right now. If you will pray the following prayer, you can be ready for the rapture:
Dear Jesus, I am a sinner, my soul is lost. I accept you as my Lord and Savior. Come into my heart and save me I pray. Thank you Jesus for saving me, Amen. You are now ready for the rapture.
If you prayed that prayer by faith beloved, you are ready to go to heaven. Join yourself to a Bible believing Church where you can be established in Dispensational Truth and in the revelation of the Trinity. Your Bible book store will have valuable books to help you. I recommend you purchase a Scofield Bible to use as a study aid in understanding Dispensational revelation. Books by Dwight Pentecost (Things To Come), and Clarence Larkin (Dispensational Truth), are valuable in helping to reveal eternal truths hidden in the Trinity but now spoken to us by the Son of God (Heb. 1:2).
A WORD OF WARNING.
There is another doctrine going around concerning the endtimes. It is called the Post-Tribulation teaching of Christ. Those who teach this, deny the revelation of Dispensational Truth. Many of them deny the holy Trinity. This doctrine is false for the following reasons: 1. It teaches replacement theology, that the Church replaced Israel. 2. It teaches that all the promises of Abraham for Jews are fulfilled in Christ in the Church. 3. It teaches that God the Father does not have a special time remaining to restore Israel and finish her Covenant promises. 4. It teaches that the 70th week of Daniel is already fulfilled and not future. 5. It teaches that the seventy weeks of Daniel is messianic and deals with Christ and the setting up of the Church and not Israel being set up to enter the Millennial Kingdom. 6. It teaches that the seventieth week is for the anointing of Messiah to restore lost humanity, not that the seventieth week is for the restoration of the nation Israel. 7. It teaches that the Law is fully ended and God the Father does not have seven years of Law remaining to get his wife back through animal sacrifices. 8. It teaches that the Kingdom was not delayed or postponed.
The"Kingdom Now" doctrine is false. The Kingdom is totally and fully future. To believe the Post Tribulation doctrine is to deny that the Trinity is working out two plans, two separate Covenants, one for the Jews and one for the Gentiles. The Post Tribulation doctrine, by its very teaching that the Church is the new Israel, is anti-trinitarian. Will God the Son have what God the Father does not (a Wife, a Bride)? If God the Father does not get Israel back during the seven years of tribulation, there will be no time before the Millennial to get her back? Israel's only hope would then be in the Church. This is false doctrine. In Dispensational Truth, God the Father and God the Son work out the fulfillment of the mystery in the Trinity in the dual Covenants. Fire from heaven on animal sacrifices will soon reveal that God has returned upon Israel. Then, what of replacement theology?
Should you meet any who believe the Post Tribulation doctrine, do not receive them. They deny the mystery of the Trinity and are thus antichrist. They are not mainstream Evangelical Protestants. Any literature or books containing anti-Jewish teachings should be given to an agency that monitors anti-Semitic behavior, such as the Simon Wisenthal Center. Some local police departments have hate-crime sections that should be notified of hate literature and these groups. You will be doing God service. The greatest sin of all is to be silent about anyone who denies the Trinity. Anyone who teaches or believes the doctrine of the Post Tribulation coming of Christ, is antichrist! They deny that the Father and the Son, are working in unity to fulfill the two Covenants in Dispensational Truth. God bless you my beloved.
John Delbert DeHann
The above is fully and completly a false doctrine. Two gods and two wives? God the Father would not allow God the Son to nail all the Law to the Cross? The Church in the world hinders God the Father from retuning to Israel? God the Son must get the Church out? The Pretribulation doctrine is trinitarian and without the trinity it would collapse? I ask all you good people, Is God pleased with this false doctrine? Ever since Jesus said not to let any man deceive us about his second coming, the deceivers have come in all generations. Some to deny Jesus was Messiah come in the flesh, and some to out-right deny his coming after the tribulation as he predicted (Matthew 24:29). That Jesus would come like a thief secretly is not what the Scriptures say. It says the *Day of the Lord* will come as a thief (1Thessalonians 5:2). And on that day every eye shall see him, no secret snatch and no time to be saved after he appears; and this is for Jews and Gentiles. Now is the time to prepare through faith according to Acts 2:38.
