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 4500 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 rapture theology is from the pits of hell. 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, (CUFI) 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 Jewish lobby is one of the most powerful if not the most power lobbying group in Washington. They have bribe politicians in both the US congress and England's Parliament for many years toe promote the Zionist agenda. The founder of the Olive Tree ministry said... Israel must pursue one policy in dealing with Hezbollah and Hamas, "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 because 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. The word Rapture comes from the Latin word Rapio meaning, seize by force, rob, steal, kidnap, pillage, and it is the root word for Rape. Jerome mistranslated the Greek word Haparzo - caught-up for rapio when he wrote the Latin Vulgate.
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? The rapture one of the biggest hoax in modern time? It is an anti-Christ, anti-reformation, anti-protestant theology.
JERUSALEM (CNN) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected Sunday the Obama administration’s demand that Israel halt the planning of a Jewish housing project in a predominantly Arab East Jerusalem neighborhood.
In a major speech to the Muslim world delivered in Cairo last month, President Barack Obama said Middle East peace hinged on both Palestinian progress in governance, security and financial sector reforms and Israel lifting restrictions on Palestinian movement and implementing “an immediate and comprehensive settlement freeze.”
The conservative Israeli leader, however, remained steadfast.
“Our sovereignty over [Jerusalem] cannot be challenged. This means that residents of Jerusalem may purchase apartments in all parts of the city,” Netanyahu said at the start of the weekly Cabinet meeting.
“We cannot accept the idea that Jews will not have the right to live and purchase in all parts of Jerusalem.”
In a meeting last Thursday with Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren, U.S. State Department officials had demanded the project be stopped, Israeli officials said.
The project is being developed by American millionaire Irving Moskowitz on land that he purchased in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood. Moskowitz, an avid supporter of Jewish building in East Jerusalem, purchased the land in 1985.
Israeli Soldiers Testify: We Used Gazans as Human Shields!
|Once again, the Israeli army admits of committing war crimes in Gaza.|
A Golani brigade soldier confessed that the Israeli occupation forces used Palestinians as human shields during Gaza war last January despite a 2005 High Court ruling outlawing the practice. The soldier said his unit employed a variation of the practice, the so-called “neighbor procedure,” when it checked homes for Palestinian resistance fighters.
The soldier’s testimony appears in a collection of accounts being published this week by Breaking the Silence, an organization that collects Israeli soldiers’ testimony on human rights abuses by the military.
In a print and video testimony published on Wednesday by the activist group, the 30 soldiers say they were commanded to shoot first and then worry about civilian causalities adding that the Israeli army’s imperative was to minimize its own casualties to ensure Israeli public support for the Gaza operation. A Palestinian rights group has stated that 1,417 Palestinians were killed, 926 of them civilians, during the Israeli war on Gaza. But Israel has put the death toll at 1,166 and estimated 295 dead were civilians. Ten occupation soldiers and three settlers were also killed.
The soldier, a staff sergeant, said that in his unit and others, Palestinians were often sent into houses to determine if there was anyone inside. “The practice was not to call it ‘the neighbor procedure.’ Instead it was called ‘Johnny,’” the soldier said, using Israeli military slang for Palestinian civilians. The Israeli occupation employed this practice extensively during the second intifada, before it was outlawed by the High Court of Justice in 2005.
In an incident his commanders told him about, three “armed militants” were in a house. Attack helicopters were brought in. “They … again sent the [Palestinian] neighbor in. At first he said that nothing had happened [to the armed men],” the soldier said. “Again they brought in attack helicopters and fired. They again sent in the neighbor. He said there were two dead and one still alive. They then brought in a bulldozer and began to knock the house down on him until [the neighbor] entered.” The soldier said he had been told that the only militant remaining alive was captured and turned over to the Shin Bet security service.
The Golani soldier also testified that his commanders reported incidents in which Palestinians were given sledgehammers to break through walls to let the army enter through the side of houses. The army feared that the doors were booby-trapped.
The soldier said he had heard of other instances in which Palestinian civilians were used as human shields. One time, for example, a Palestinian was put at the front of an Israeli military force with a gun pointed at him from behind.
The Israeli military Spokesman’s Office, for its part, said that “the IDF regrets the fact that a human rights organization would again present to the country and the world a report containing anonymous, generalized testimony without checking the details or their reliability, and without giving the IDF, as a matter of minimal fairness, the opportunity to check the matters and respond to them before publication.”
For his part, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak responded to the report saying that “if anyone has any criticism, information of reservations over the IDF’s operations, they must direct them to me as the State of Israel’s defense minister and to the Israeli government, which was the one to order to IDF to restore calm in the southern communities.” Minister Barak added, “Criticism directed at the IDF by one organization or another is inappropriate and is directed at the wrong place. The IDF is one of the most ethical armies in the world and acts in accordance with the highest moral code.”
SHOOT FIRST, WORRY LATER!
The 112-page report by Breaking the Silence includes testimonies of 30 soldiers “who served in all sectors of the operation”.
“Better hit an innocent than hesitate to target an enemy,” is a typical description by one unidentified soldier of his understanding of instructions repeated at pre-invasion briefings and during the 22-day war, from Dec. 27 to Jan. 18.
“If you’re not sure, kill. Fire power was insane. We went in and the booms were just mad,” says another. “The minute we got to our starting line, we simply began to fire at suspect places. In urban warfare, anyone is your enemy. No innocents.”
“We did not get instructions to shoot at anything that moved,” said one soldier. “But we were generally instructed: if you feel threatened, shoot. They kept repeating to us that this is war and in war opening fire is not restricted.”
UMBRELLA OF FIRE
One soldier said that his unit had received an order to “ignite” an area. “The way to do that was to actually fire phosphorus shells from above,” he said. “What the phosphorus does is to let out an umbrella of fire over the target and naturally that ignites the whole house.” The results of a white phosphorus bombardment were “upsetting” another soldier said, “because in training you learn that white phosphorus is not used, and you’re taught that it’s not humane”.
The report also mentions armored bulldozers razing whole areas including gardens, and olive and orange groves. “We didn’t see a single house that was intact … that was not hit. The entire infrastructure, tracks, fields, roads, was in total ruin. The D-9 (bulldozer) had gone over everything,” the report quotes a soldier as saying.
