There is a theology that will cause millions of families to be lost; this false doctrine is the breeding ground for most of the anger and hatred that most people in the world have toward the US.
It is a theology that is preached from most of the pulpits in America, taught at most of the leading seminaries.
It is a theology that nullifies what Jesus did on the cross in making and end of the bloody sacrifice and give the anti Christ the credit. It is a theology from the pits of hell. This theology has decimated families and people groups and can be link to the deaths of 3500 American soldiers in Iraq as well as to the terrorist attacks of 9-11. This theology has shape foreign policy, given birth the new governments and given rebirth to an old government that God did away with almost 500 years before Christ. This theology is directly responsible for the instability and turmoil in the Middle East... The current crises in America and of the Middle East today can be trace to this diabolical theology.
Supporters in the U.S. are applauding Israel's incursions into Gaza and Lebanon. According to Associated Press, Rev. John Hagee, national chairman of Christians United for Israel, says the Jewish state has "the right to pursue terrorist organizations" that invade its territory, and his group brought thousands of supporters together in Washington and lobbied Congress on Israel's behalf. The founder of the Olive Tree ministry said... Israel must pursue one policy in dealing with Hezbollah and Hams, "The only thing that works with Islam is blowing them to kingdom come. It's time to go in with force," Mirkel…
Why do we defend the misdeeds of Israel? Could if be b/c of this diabolical theology.
The theology that I'm speaking of being from Satan is not even in the Bible... It is a theology that was invented as an anti-reformation tool by the Catholic Church...
Although many pre-Reformation writers perceived Papacy as the Man of Sin, the leaders of the sixteenth century Reformation wove this identification into a larger prophetic mosaic. That Martin Luther, the father of the Reformation, recognized the Papacy as the Man of Sin is obvious, "We are convinced that the Papacy is the seat of the true and real Antichrist." The Protestant Church of the Reformation saw Papacy as more than the apostate church. Prophecy became the rallying point of the Reformation.
From the first, and throughout, that movement [the Reformation] was energized and guided by the prophetic Word. Luther never felt strong and free to war against the papal apostasy till he recognized the pope as antichrist.
Hundred of thousands of people were leaving the Catholic Church and following the reformers…
In the reaction that followed, all the powers of hell seemed to be let loose upon the adherents of the Reformation. War followed war: tortures, burnings, and massacres were multiplied. Yet the Reformation stood undefeated and unconquerable. God's word upheld it, and the energies of His Almighty Spirit. It was the work of Christ as truly as the founding of the Church eighteen centuries ago; and the revelation of the future which He gave from heaven—that prophetic book with which the Scripture closes—was one of the mightiest instruments employed in its accomplishment."3
In 1545, the Catholic Church convened one of its most famous councils in history, which took place north of Rome in a city called Trent... Thus the Council of Trent became a center for Rome's Counter-Reformation. Up to this point, Rome's main method of attack had been largely frontal—the open burning of Bibles and of heretics. Yet this warfare only confirmed in the minds of Protestants the conviction that Papal Rome was indeed the Beast which would "make war with the saints" (Revelation 13:7). Therefore a new tactic was needed, something less obvious. This is where the Jesuits come in.
On August 15, 1534, Ignatius Loyola (in the title picture) founded a secretive Catholic order called the Society of Jesus, also known as the Jesuits
The Rapture theory was first conjure up by Fancisco Ribera as a counter reformation theology… what the church could not do by war, torture, and burning, they done by theology.
Cardinal Bellarmine developed stating that Antichrist to come just before the end of the world and to be accepted by the Jews and enthroned in the temple at Jerusalem—thus endeavoring to dispose of the Protestant exposition which saw Antichrist in the pope. Bellarmine's interpretation, in modified form, is now accepted by most premillennial dispensationalists.
This theological concept was accepted into the Church of England by Maitland, and adopted into the Pentecostal and charismatic by Edward Irvin…Irvin was follow by an English lawyer, politician, Pastor John Darby… Darby preaching greatly influences the political area in England…
Cyrus Scofield a Kansas lawyer and preacher infected the Baptists with this deadly virus as well as the political landscape in the early 20th century setting the stage for the force eviction of the Palestinians and the reestablishment of a country that has had cease to exist for over 2500 yrs…
Basic teachings of Rapture theory:
1. The rebirth of the state of Israel in 1948.
2. A soon-coming seven years of "Great Tribulation."
3. The rebuilding of the Jewish temple on Jerusalem's Temple Mount.
4. The Antichrist's rise during the tribulation; He'll enter the temple to proclaim Godhood.
5. A final war against Israel, which will result in Armageddon.
Israel must pursue one policy in dealing with Hezbollah and Hamas, the Olive Tree Ministries founder contends. "The only thing that works with Islam is blowing them to kingdom come. It's time to go in with force," Mirkel
Yes my friend, The Rapture Theory produces this type of mentality. Is this the attitude that a follower of Christ should have? Was Jesus a war-monger? or did he teach that we should love our enimies? Is the Rapture theory Bibical? What is the truth behind the Rapture? IS the rapture one of the biggest hoax in modern time?
In Part two we will examine the facts.
