Left Behind or Led Astray

More and more people are beginning to realize that the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Theory has no scriptural basis. This is wonderful to hear, for those of us who love the Bible and are horrified by those who twist it. Even better, people are producing books and videos explaining why they have left the pretrib view.

I stumbled over one such video this week, and it encouraged me to dig deeper. My digging uncovered a few more resources for you to look at.

Unfortunately, whenever I do this, I come under Satanic attack. And, this week was no exception.

Left Behind or Led Astray

I love me Pretrib brothers and sisters. My pastor in Jerusalem is a wonderful man of God, and a pretribber. Some of my best friends are pretribbers, and they are wonderful people. Furthermore, pretribbers share God’s love for Israel, and I rejoice to see that.

I find that pretribbers have more joy and love than post-tribbers. Post-tribbers tend to be rather mean-spirited and have a hatred of Israel. In fact, one of the reasons why I stumbled over the video ‘Left Behind or Led Astray‘, is due to the mean-spirited hatefulness of ‘pastor’ Steven Anderson of ‘Faithful’ Word Baptist Church.

Steven Anderson does not exhibit the love and kindness that God calls us to show to the world. He is an angry, vengeful and hateful person. His fruit is bitterness, and I only discovered that AFTER I posted his video in the about page of Omega Shock:


(It’s at the bottom of the page)

The question was…

What video do I replace it with?

And, that question arose because I was editing this section of Ezekiel’s Fire:


The interesting thing is that I immediately came under Satanic attack, when I started making edits to that section. And, they intensified this week, as I did my research into this video, ‘Left Behind or Led Astray‘. Satan does NOT want me to talk about this.

Of course, that just encourages me to press on.

Having said that, I am loathe to upset those of you who are pretribbers. I love you all, and I take no pleasure in any unhappy feelings that may result in what I am saying on this topic. But, the future is dire, and you will not survive the plans that Satan has for you, if you do not see the Bible clearly.

And yes, this is all about clarity in interpretation of the Bible. This is not about bashing someone’s pet theory. We all have theories about the Bible that are wrong, and as such theories go, pretribism isn’t all that bad… except for one thing:

The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Theory will blind you.

I’ve been reading my Bible, cover-to-cover for about twenty years. But, it wasn’t until 2009, that this verse hit me:

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

 – Luke 21:36

I realized that I had not been ‘praying always’ that I would be considered worthy to escape the Tribulation that Jesus was speaking of in Luke 21, Matthew 24 or Mark 13. So, I printed out that verse, and taped it to the wall, so that I would be reminded to pray that I would be considered worthy to escape the things that Jesus spoke about.

And no, that verse is NOT a suggestion.

It’s a command.

He didn’t say, ‘I suggest’. Or, ‘It would be wise if…’. He said watch and pray. As a commandment.

The problem is that pretribbers aren’t watching and praying that they would be accounted ‘worthy to escape’. And, I only discovered that AFTER I launched Omega Shock. I’m still a bit shocked over this blindness, but I’m getting over it.

Please, watch and pray.


To help you do that, let me show you what I came up with, this week:

And then, there’s this:

Okay, I think that this is enough video for y’all. So, I’ll stop here.

The Salvation Of ISRAEL

Let me offer up one observation that many will miss, and it’s important:


When pretribbers come out of that theory, the struggle to clear up their spiritual eyesight is so great, that they haven’t had the time or energy to examine the other subjects that this theory has obscured.

Remember that the pretrib theory forces people to put the salvation of Israel AFTER the Tribulation begins. Look carefully at the theory, and you’ll see why. However, when people leave the ‘pretrib fold’, they don’t understand this.

So, let me ask you the question:

If there is no pretrib rapture, when will Israel be saved?

BEFORE the Tribulation.

Ezekiel’s Fire

Once you figure that out, you’ll realize that we are all in a HEAP of trouble, because the salvation of Israel is filled with lots of death and destruction – the chief of which comes from the superflare that I call Ezekiel’s Fire. You could easily call it Isaiah’s Sun or Zechariah’s Horses, and some might do that, if they are inspired to write their own books on the subject.

Mine is here:


I am struggling to get the final edits done on the book, so that I can get it into print form. Pray for me as I try to finish the edits. It needs to be out and in people’s hands before Gog and Magog arrives. We are seeing this moment coming soon, and we must be ready for it.

Having said that, you can read it right now, as long as you don’t mind reading electronic versions.

Please, follow the commandment of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to watch and pray (Luke 21:36). May we all be found worthy to escape these things that are coming to pass, and stand before our Lord and Savior in the life to come.

Articles of Extra Special Note

Generation Zero Full Documentary

This is an amazing movie that lays out the foundation for the rise of Antichrist. No, that’s not what they INTENDED. But, as I watched this… I realized that everything that they are talking about is logically and relentlessly pushing us towards collapse and authoritarian rule.

But, this time, an ‘authoritarian rule’ that will claim himself to be god.

There is a darkest of evils at the heart of America. It was given a home, at her birth. It was included at the very foundations of the Republic. Every government building even includes an Illuminati foundation stone, via the Freemasons.

Still Report #1128 – Clinton Gets Rapist Off – YouTube

I am sickened by even the THOUGHT that Hillary is even RUNNING for president. The thought that there are enough Americans that support her… is apalling.

The truth.

Clinton Dodges the Health Question on Kimmel | Scott Adams’ Blog

Here’s a quote from the article:

When you ask an honest, healthy person if they are in good health, they say, “Yes.” They might also ask why you are inquiring. They might add some details. But they usually answer the question.

Clinton never answered the question about her health. All she did was mock the Trump supporters who keep bringing it up. Clinton intentionally avoided the question while skillfully making you think she addressed it.

I’m only including this because it’s from ‘mainstream media’. It’s a pretty good article, except for the part where it says that “[The Clinton Foundation has] done some fine work.”

What ‘work’ is this?

We have no evidence of them doing ANYTHING. I’ve been hearing that something like 2% of the money ‘donated’ is actually given to something that one might call ‘charity’. This is the kind of racket that you would have expected to see in the Ottoman Empire, the Roman Empire, and all the other empires, as they were collapsing.

Overpowering corruption.

It’s a sign.

In fact, it has begun already.

    • Hi Michael,

      Interesting video. Very. One of the outposts of the Catholic ecumenical movement in Jerusalem was just down the street from me, in Gilo – Tantur. It sits on the border of Jerusalem and Bethlehem. They have been trying to get their claws into everyone.

      Will the Pope proclaim Lucifer as god, in September?

      It sounded like he might have already, but it’s hard to say. We’ll need to wait and see.

      What we certainly ARE seeing is the rise of a New World Religion that will allow a man to proclaim himself to be god. But, a lot must happen before then.

      Thank you for that video, Michael. Lord willing, it will go into Friday’s post.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      PS. I did work for the company whose email service you are using. If the Chinese government can’t crack it, no one can. Oh, and the owner is a great guy.

  1. Turkey is on the move, Putin making agreements with Erdogan , and for me I feel this is out of his thinking with keep your friends Close and your enemies even closer.

    Erdogan seems to be playing both the west and east against each other trying to manipulate both in order to sneak in to the top.

    Walid shoebat put out an interesting post :

    Its escalating , and the masses of people are blind to world events, they are too busy worrying about how racist Trump is or how Sick Hillary looks .

    Nothing seems to be able to stop this madness and the devil is using a multipronged attack to destroy America.

    whether its financial death, military death , or food shortage death

    the boiling frog analogy is key , and right now America is the frog in that pan full of water .

    and Obama is the puppet of the elites that they chose to have him turn the nozzle up on us.

    May Jesus have mercy on us, May Jesus pour his holy spirit on this world to get more and more people to repent from their sins.

    Thank you Brother for your work, I think of you as one of my pastors that I seek guidance from in a world full of lies.

    Stay strong in Christ and Be blessed in his name!

    • Hi Shehab Aziz,

      Interesting article. I respect Walid Shoebat greatly and even spent some time with the man who helped him in his early Christian walk.

      But, we all have blind spots.

      I believe that Walid has a blind spot for Islam. It seems to me that he gives too much significance to Islam, in his belief that Islam will conquer the world – at least, as I understand his eschatology. But, that doesn’t mean that we should ignore what he is saying. Just keep an open mind.

      As for the rest, I agree. And, I also thank you for the warm regard that you have towards me. It is an honor and a privilege. One day, you will do the same for others.

      God bless you, Shehab!

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  2. Did you notice in Simon Black’s article on “Ripple”–the video background music seems to be a very elevatorized “Sympathy for the Devil” by the Rolling Stones? Pretty creepy.

  3. Hi John!
    Thanks for another installment.
    Couple of quick things to cover then a question.

    Dating self (left over from last week)
    I have not yet begun to date myself! [John Paul Jones paraphrase 😉 ] I remember a Saturday morning cartoon line up that included Woody Woodpecker and Gumby and Pokey. I use to watch Creature Features 10PM on Friday nights with a snowy black and white TV with a set of rabbit ears. How about LP albums or eight track tapes? I bet you remember some of these things too, which dates us both I guess. I guess we can spare the audience of the times when we had to walk to school twenty miles, one way, through the snow, up hill both ways!

    I know you have said a number of times that the people in Taiwan are crazy. Well, as a public transit employee in the San Francisco Bay area, we are overflowing with crazy here too! The problem is it seems to be getting worse with the pace quickening.

    And the question:
    I do not think the pre/post trib question is a major issue. As I have said before, I am a pretrib/dispensationalist. Adam failed his bride in Eden, but we know Jesus will NOT fail his! Either way we have some rough spots to get through.
    My question is based on a passage from my favorite prophet, Isaiah 11:8 (nasb)

    The nursing child will play by the hole of the cobra,
    And the weaned child will put his hand on the viper’s den.

    If you read all of chapter 11 you will see this is a picture of the 1000 year reign of Christ on earth. If there will be nursing and weaned children, there will be pregnant women which means weddings and so on. There will be regular flesh and blood people in that time just as we have today. How do you reconcile this prophecy if everyone is raptured (given their glorified forms) at the end of the tribulation period?

    • Hi Micheel,

      (I think that you accidentally hit ‘e’ when you meant ‘a’)

      Yeah. We’re certainly a bunch of almost-old folks. Eight track tapes, indeed!

      I also agree that it is not a spiritually serious issue (with one exception). But, I believe it to be a life-and-death issue, which is the point of this website. My goal is to save as many lives as possible, and debate the relative merits of various theories after we get past what is rolling down upon us.

      But, there is this issue (the exception) that makes me upset.

      I see a deliberate twisting of the Bible. It was done a while ago, and I understand how it was done. And the greatest fault lies with those who died a while ago. But, it still makes me angry. The words of God are holy, and they should not be tampered with. They should not be twisted.

      As for who populates the Millennium, that’s easy. Remember that you must exert conscious will to accept the Mark of the Beast. If you are not old enough to exert that ‘conscious will’, you cannot receive ‘The Mark’. This means that there will be hundreds of millions of children who will survive the wrath poured out upon those who receive The Mark.

      That alone, will be enough to populate the Millennium.

      Think also of those children of Christian parents who survive until The Rapture. Those children who are not saved – and there will be many – they will also populate the Millennium.

      So, there are many, many ways that there would be people who survive to go into the Millennium and then eventually rebel against God at the end of it.

      I really appreciate your good heart, Michael. Very few are able to talk about this in a spirit of love.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • Possibly what Michael was talking about was the difference – which some confuse – between heaven and the new earth. It is a vast universe our Lord has created, it boggles the mind to consider just how vast. We are spirits living in a fleshly body. Adam and Eve definitely had flesh, but at first it was not corrupted. Had that not happened, they would have been able to have children in a pure state. After all, they were commanded to. And the intent was that they – and we – would live forever in this ideal state, having both spirit and flesh, and all of it pure. When God does the reset, we will receive a “glorified” body, as was the original intent. The details of this we are not told. The task at hand is more important, namely to rescue as many as possible. Then, at some future time, we who believe and endure/overcome will see the amazing unfolding of the full restoration of the entire mess on this earth and in humanity itself accomplished by our Lord. The details of that we are not told either, and my guess is it would be inexpressible in words anyway. But it reminds me of that wonderful passage about when the morning stars sang together, and the sons of God shouted for joy.

  4. Hello John
    Thank-you so much for your writings and research which are usually very informative and challenging. Today is no exception but I have to admit that I am perplexed as well. While I believe that scripture does firmly support a post-tribulation rapture I am surprised at your endorsement of the film Left Behind or Led Astray.
    I watched the trailers and was concerned about some of the statements made so decided to do a bit of investigating to see whether this DVD was actually worth watching. Unfortunately I think this DVD distorts facts in a very unprofessional (and un-Christian) way, and does more harm than good to the post-trib position of the rapture.

    I found this excellent article refuting the DVD . While I do not agree with the author’s pre-trib position I do respect how he has refuted the facts and comments made in the DVD. I hope you will take the time to read it and perhaps reconsider your endorsement of this DVD.


    Thanks for all you do for the body of Christ in these last days.
    Kathryn Hutton

  5. Hi John, I see you think flat earth is a crazy idea, its new to me also. But can you show me in the word where it tells us it is a sphere. Every bible verse I find does not support we are on a spinning wheel. I am only interested in what the bible says not nasa or man. Cheers

    • Hi J Russell,

      Um… right.

      There is nothing in The Word that says one way or the other. But, you diminish the glory of God by proclaiming that His Creation is tiny and insignificant.

      If the ‘heavens declare the glory of God’, then what are you declaring when you say that those ‘heavens’ are just meaningless points of light? To believe in a ‘Flat Earth’ is to glorify man, not God.

      Furthermore, God is the author of order and reason. It is clearly demonstrated in the Bible, and it is clearly demonstrated by His creation. This Flat Earth theory attempts to nullify that.

      Why do so many scientists come to faith in Christ when they look at how wonderful His creation is?

      But, go ahead and believe what you want. Flat-Earthism is a demonstration that there is no evidence or logic that can turn people away from what they believe.

      Thank you, J.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • There is a passage I can’t find right now – I tried a search in the KJV – but I’m not sure which translation I first found it in. I want to say it’s in psalms or proverbs. But it went something like “the earth rolls upon her wings in glory” … possibly Job.

  6. Hi, John. This post is related in a peripheral manner to your entry for today, but I think it carries information of significance.

    As one who firmly thinks believers WILL BE on the planet during the times of trial and testing, I think a great deal about SPIRITUAL PREPARATION; being in the Word, prayers in accordance to the WILL OF THE FATHER, and strategizing for survival.

    With the objectives above firmly before me, I’d like to submit Michael Heiser’s text, The Unseen Realm, for your consideration (as well as your reader’s consideration).

    Heiser’s text speaks to spiritual realities that have great import for the current and future times. At this point along the time continuum, there is not a reader of this blog who should be unaware of our badly deteriorated spiritual reality. However, knowing the precise causative factors underlying that reality are poorly understood. The Unseen Realm blows the lid off the undergirding realities.

    I first started reading Heiser’s material 3 or 4 years ago. My chief interest were his articles on The Divine Council. When The Unseen Realm was announced, I added my name to a pre-purchase list and devoured the text upon its release. Since then, I’ve re-read the text multiple times, and have mentored a small group of individuals as we’ve delved into the complexities of the text and availed ourselves of many of the articles/texts contained within Heiser’s bibliography. The exercise has been BEYOND illuminating.

    Heiser’s text CHANGES EVERYTHING, and yet it CHANGES NOTHING. The gospel remains firmly and irrevocably established. But WE have been changed and our spiritual growth has skyrocketed by that which we have absorbed.

    I simply cannot recommend Heiser’s text highly enough. Though Heiser is the consummate academician, his writing style is easily absorbed and his detailed amplification of certain complex issues can be quickly mastered by all.

    The Unseen Realm should emphatically be required reading for any and all mature believers in Yehovah. We desperately need this information as part of our spiritual preparations for that which is exploding about us.

    • Hi bert,

      It is interesting that you would mention Dr. Heiser. I was recently trying to neutralize a vile anti-semite and ran across:


      Michael Heiser created that site in an attempt to demolish the idiocy of Zechariah Sitchin. Sitchin was a fraud, and his lies are still running around, corrupting Christians.

      I will look into the book. For those who are interested in doing the same, you can find more, here:


      Thank you, Bert. A very interesting comment.

      Yours in Christ,

    Every year, Muslim leaders around the world look to the moon to predict the date for one of their most important holidays, Eid al-Adha — the feast of sacrifice.

    When Habeeb Ahmed began about two months ago to plan for that holy day, he noticed a potentially fraught coincidence: Eid al-Adha could fall on Sept. 11.

    Here’s another Muslim taking a stand, of course, he’s citing race as the reason:

    The most confusing aspect of this is the fact that the groups currently fighting each other both receive funding and backing from Washington. The Kurds have even been designated the most effective fighting force on the ground in the fight against ISIS, yet Washington has enabled them to be completely bombarded by Turkish forces for some time now. The U.S. has also warned the Kurdish forces that they must cede control of areas that they had seized from ISIS fighters in recent developments and retreat back to the Eastern side of the Euphrates River, which only further confuses U.S. official strategy (if there is one).

  9. What is the Mystery Rev. 10:7
    Rev10:7 “But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.”

    What is the this mystery you speak of? The greek word (musterion). Exactly the same meaning as it is now. The Young’s analytical concordance defines it as “what is known only to the initiated” which exemplifies this fascinating topic so lets continue.
    Mark 4:11
    “And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:” Unto us?
    Romans 11:25
    “For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.” Yes unto us and we should not be ignorant about it either. Hmm. The fullness of the gentiles? we’ll get back to that.

    Now the same word mystery is used in different contexts but all of the usages being used here are all in context and relating to each other. No more suspense! What is this mystery you speak of? Its not a secret! Its a mystery and one can only understand it if its given unto you then receive the holy spirit. The bible will tell us.
    Ephesians 5:32
    “This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.”
    Colossians 1:27
    “To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:” Wow there it is. Christ in you the hope of glory. The new birth like the apostles on the day of Pentecost receiving the holy spirit.
    Colossians 1:26
    “Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:” Thats why its been a mystery but it was a secret until the Lord revealed it. It was hidden from the ages and generations but why?
    Romans 16:25
    “Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began. ”
    Colossians 4:3
    “Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:”
    1 Corinthians 2:8,9

    “But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

    Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.” Had the devil known about the mystery “Christ In You” and the “body of Christ” he would never have crucified Jesus. Crucial mistake in strategy on the devil’s part. He just didn’t get the Intel.

    Romans 10:9
    “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Not of the water baptism but of the holy spirit as Jesus speaks of in the gospels.
    John 3:3
    “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

    John 3:7
    Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

    1 Peter 1:23
    Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” This is the mystery being Born-Again into the body of Christ and Rom 10:9,10 is a specific method in scripture on how to be Born-Again.

    Now you must ask what is the hope of glory? Fair enough! It fits right into the context of Rev. 10:7 First lets read context of the events of Rev 10:7 to what the Lord spoke of in the gospels

    Math. Ch. 13 (1599 Geneva Bible)

    7 “And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.
    14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
    22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
    24 But in those days after that tribulation,(Rev Ch. 6 , 6th Seal Opened) sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,
    25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.” (culminating in Rev 10 the 7th trumpet: ( concerning the gathering or rapture) KJV

    Rev 10:7 “But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.” What is being finished? Remember Romans 11:25 “…fullness of the Gentiles be come in…” The mystery of God is finished when the fullness of the gentiles comes in. This is where it gets interesting. You must be Born-Again that is established but there is a time when receiving the holy spirit like on the day of Pentecost will end. That time is Rev Ch. 10:7. The body of Christ is fulfilled. The grace administration is over. There will be no more remission from sin by the blood of the lamb. It will be a continuation of the old testament prophecy , Israel and the Jewish people but this period we live in is beyond what most of us realize not fully understanding what we have in such a special gift the holy spirit in us. Not just upon us like the prophets of old or John the baptist but IN us adding of which the prophets of the old testament are also dead in Christ. They will be raised from the dead with the believers of this era which began on the day of Pentecost and ends in Rev 10:7 as we the body of Christ are raised from the dead or raptured into the heavens if we are alive at that time. This is the hope of glory. Its all right here in the bible and this mystery is now given unto you.
    1 Timothy 3:9
    Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.
    1 Corinthians 15:52

    “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”

    1 Thessalonian 4

    15 “For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

    16 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:

    17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”

    2 Thessalonian 2

    “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,”

    Math. Ch. 13 (1599 Geneva Bible)

    33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know NOT when the time is.) (. “watch” = Greek =gregerio = Vigilant, aware, sober, awake are English words in the bible translated form the same exact word (gregerio) we are to be aware cause we have NO idea when it is going to happen.)
    34 For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
    35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cock-crowing, or in the morning:
    36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
    37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.”

    What a we watching for?

    (Rev Ch. 6 , 6th Seal Opened and Rev 10 the 7th trumpet: (concerning the gathering or rapture)
    Not rumors of war or famine or economic collapse. We watching for the signs in the stars, moon and sun. Maintaining sober mind , vigilant to stay informed and be aware and alert, awake. When the sixth seal is opened everyone is going to notice and we will know the time is very short and the coming of Jesus Christ is imminent. He will be there waiting for us at the last trump.

    Rev 10:7 “But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.”

    Hope to see you there!

  11. John,
    I’m reading the book. Holy cow… Amazing. I’m in a situation where I can’t move to Israel, but I feel the call to go! Jerusalem to be exact. I visited there while in the Navy in 1996 and 1998. I served in the Army as well in 2006-2013. I have known for a while that the pre tribulation rapture was a lie. Got so much I want to tell you and talk about. I’m in a PTSD treatment facility in New York State. Batavia VA clinic. Been here 7 of 9 weeks. Wife and kids are home waiting for me to return. My relationship with God is growing since being here. I don’t go to church anymore because of the false teachings… God has protected me for some reason…Not yet sure why. But I hope he makes a way for me to go to Jerusalem for the return…with my family. We love God but aren’t totally right with him yet. We are working on it! God is working on us! Blessings to you and much thanks for the scriptural profs provided for all your statements. God stated there is a blessing for those who teach the Eschatological Truths! I am telling you this because I believe in my heart your words are the truest I have yet heard from an Author/teacher! Thank you
    Gregory Dash II

    • Hi Gregory Dash II,

      There is a book’s worth of story in your comment. My own family is acquainted with PTSD – far too well. So, I have a little understanding of what you are going through, and how hard it is to recover from that.

      And, your situation has been made even harder by the fact that no one understands.

      But, you wouldn’t WANT them to understand, because they would have to go through what you have already gone through. You wouldn’t wish that on your worst enemy.

      Anyone who suffers from any kind of chronic problem will have some empathy for your situation.

      I am glad that the Lord is at work in your life, and the lives of your family. It’s a long road. I’ve had my own experience with walking it. And, I understand the struggle to find a church that speaks the truth.

      I know that far too many of the pastors at these faithless churches KNOW the truth, but refuse to teach it – because they know that two thirds of their congregation would leave.

      That makes me want to scream.

      Unfortunately, being without a church is also dangerous to your spiritual well-being.

      But, you’ve taken the right steps. Keep going. As you seek the Lord, He will guide you. Of course, ‘seeking the Lord’ requires that we reduce the number of distractions in our lives, so that we can hear His voice.

      And, that is so hard.

      I speak from painful experience.

      God bless you, Gregory. We all share the same road, but we know where it leads. And there will be great joy when we reach our final destination.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  12. Pre-trib is easily shown to be a false belief.

    Revelation 22:12 “Behold my reward is with me TO GIVE to each according to their works shall be.”

    Clearly the reward (Salvation) is not given out BEFORE Christ’s 2nd Coming, so therefore there is no pre-Tribulation rescue where the so-called faithful escape the refining fire Christ says we must go through.

    Jesus said you WILL suffer many things for my name’s sake, and pre-trib thinking simply doesn’t mesh with the teaching within the bible.

    Lastly, neither does the idea of the eternity of the soul. Satan’s very first lie was, “yea shall not surely die….” and Pastors are still spreading that falsehood at EVERY funeral even today.

    The bible is clear that death is a sleep, that the spirit (air = Hebrew) returns to God who gave it, not some floating consciousness.

    When we understand revelation 22:12 we see that we MUST pass through the tribulation of the end times.

    Lastly the bible clearly identifies the two-fold characteristics of the saints, those who will be saved in Revelation 14:12-20. “Here are they that keep the Commandments of God AND the faith of Jesus.”

    • Hi Anthony J Vaughan,

      That third paragraph made me wonder what you meant. Are you saying that salvation is by works? If so, that’s heresy. Hopefully, that isn’t what you are saying.

      If that IS what you are saying, then you’ve traded one error for an even greater one.

      Yes, we are rewarded in heaven, for the service that we do for the Lord, but that isn’t the same as salvation.

      And then you imply that the soul isn’t eternal. I’m troubled that you would say such a thing.

      Oh, and ‘spirit’ in Hebrew does not mean ‘air’. It means ‘wind’. I speak Hebrew and know the difference.

      With all of that, I wonder what you refer to, when you say ‘commandments’ in your last paragraph. If you are trying to turn Christians back to ‘The Law’, to observe Shabbat, Kashrut, etc. then I will have yet another reason to be disturbed by your comment.

      Please clarify what you mean, Anthony.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
