Prophetic Convergence

Never have we needed the Scriptures more. Never has the Church of Jesus Christ been so ignorant of the Scriptures…

Prophetic Convergence

David A. Rice, D.Div.

The four horsemen of the Apocalypse are riding. The white horse is here, the red horse is arriving, and the other two are in sight. It is Friday, March 18, 2022, and all of the signs Jesus commanded us to watch for are visible, solid and established. The war of Ezekiel thirty-eight and nine is clearly on the horizon. The King of the North is marching south towards Jerusalem, the Ukraine is just an inconvenient stop along the way. The prophets of old would have given anything to see that which we are observing in real time.

Those of God’s people who have chosen blindness, see nothing. Those with eyes to see and ears to hear are overwhelmed. Perhaps the most terrifying thing the sighted see is the confusion and terror in the eyes of those who have determined not to see. To hear Christians speak of how electing Republicans, and bringing Trump back to power will save America… Awful ignorance; the ignorance of those committed to finding proof texts to support vain imaginations.

Never have we needed the Scriptures more. Never has the Church of Jesus Christ been so ignorant of the Scriptures that sit unread, unlearned, and untaught; the Scriptures that would inform, warn, direct, guide and comfort.

No more do we read the Scriptures in context, praying that God will teach us what He wants us to know. Rather, Christians imagine a God who thinks as they would have him think and acts like they would have him act. Having determined that which they want to believe, they go to books written about the Scriptures, searching desperately for the odd verse or paragraph that, ripped from context and standing alone, seems to support their imaginary religion and describe their made up god…

If a Christian is frightened by the idea of the tribulation, he searches diligently for verses that speak of rescue and escape… It matters not what the subject matter of the Book or the chapter, it speaks of rescue and if I add that verse to the other verses I found in that magic devotional book, I can come up with enough happy verses about rescue to convince myself that the rapture must be pretrib. Please God, don’t let anybody quote Matthew 24 in my presence… If I am even aware of my sin, weakness and failure, I will look for a church that teaches Eternal Security, and I will gladly accept their collection of proof texts without question. If I cannot lose my salvation, I need not be bothered by or alter my lifestyle; after all, I walked the aisle, shook the preacher’s hand and got dunked in the baptistry… I am in like flint… Besides, this is the New Testament and God is no longer concerned about sexual perversion!

So, having collected enough assorted Bible verses to support my happy doctrine, I look out at the world and find that it is collapsing around me. I am amazed that my happy god has not explained this to me… Didn’t Jesus die to make me happy in Babylon? I thought that if I was a Christian and followed all the steps that preacher listed in that book my friend gave me that God would be forced to buy me a mansion on the hilltop. Aren’t I supposed to be living my best life now? Doesn’t God care how much money I sent to that guy on TV? I mean really!

Obviously, the answer is to bring back Donald Trump!!!

Let us forget all those silly peripheral doctrines they told us set our denomination apart and made us better than all those other Christians who didn’t believe the same silly peripheral doctrines that made the founding fathers of our denomination stomp out of one church in a huff, take half the members and go start a new and improved denomination… OUR denomination! Let us go back to the Word of God, forgetting all those silly devotional books and their “365 Happy Verses for a Happy Year”, and asking God Almighty, by his Holy Spirit, to teach us the truth and open our eyes to the world around us and help us to see the whole truth. There is a great peace that descends on one’s soul when God fills it with his Truth!

We sit on the eve of destruction. Our reward is in Heaven. I could care less what your church believes, Jesus said, “He who endures to the end shall be saved!” Take that and run with it! Don’t go to bed without reading a chapter or two or three, in context and asking God to open your eyes to the Truth.

Today’s suggested reading (It is relevant) is:

2 Chronicles 7 the whole chapter

Jeremiah 14 and 15, both chapters

Lamentations 2, the whole chapter.

Tomorrow, continue in the same books and then ask God to lead you to another book to read.

Be a Daniel. Read Daniel and see Daniel’s suffering and his courage… Go beyond the Lion’s Den!

In Times Like These

Pray for pastors who will stand up to the Devil and preach the whole Word of God.

In Times Like These

Everybody is lying, the Covid Plandemic is dying, World War Three is looming, news stories are written and crafted to evoke terror in the minds of men, right is wrong, and wrong is right; my list could go on for two or three pages, but you know the world is messed up. Satan is winning, even as God himself told us he would. Yes, the Devil is cast into the Lake of Fire, but that is at least a thousand years from now. Meanwhile, there is a short time, at the end of the world where the Devil wins on this earth.

It is time to wake up from the dreams of the heretics. In Revelation, speaking of the Devil, God tells us that “he was permitted to wage war against the saints and to conquer them. He was also given authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation.” Speaking of you and I, the End Time Saints, Jesus said, “they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake.”

In that same passage in Matthew 24 Jesus says that at this time in history “many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.” He goes on to say “But the one who endures to the end will be saved.” I don’t know about you, but to me, enduring does not sound like a lot of fun.

Jesus goes on to say, “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”

While Jesus clearly says that the Elect will be gathered to him (raptured) “Immediately after the tribulation”, People still live in a dreamworld that, denying plain Scripture and the Words of Jesus himself, insist that we will be gathered before the Tribulation.

Speaking of this time, Revelation tells us that twenty five percent of the people on earth will die. Later, a third of the survivors are killed. Jesus tells us that “if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved.” He then continues, “But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.” These are tough times. The prognosis is that it will continue to get worse until Jesus comes. Meanwhile, half of the world’s population will die.

“But he who endures to the end shall be saved…”

Still, preachers preach of a victorious Church, a church that, through politics and war, subdues the world, makes the Noahide Laws the law of the earth and prepares the Kingdom of God on earth so that Jesus can return and rule the Kingdom they have created for him…

Never mind that the Bible teaches the persecution and suffering of the Saints…

If you believe the heresy preached everywhere, let me ask you why Paul did not simply rebuke the Devil, walk out of prison, quote the right verses and make God buy him a mansion on a hilltop?

God has promised to go through it with you, not to take you out of it.

You need to repent. You need to establish a very real and strong relationship with God. You must be in Christ and Christ must be in you. You must be certain that you are where God wants you to be, doing what God wants you to do. You must be prepared to face and endure unimaginable atrocities, and not lose your faith.

UNDERSTAND THIS: Not all suffering is of the Devil.

Peter tells us: Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. 15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler. 16 Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name. For it is time for judgment to begin at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? And

“If the righteous is scarcely saved,

    what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?”

Therefore let those who suffer according to God’s will entrust their souls to a faithful Creator while doing good.

Pray for pastors who will stand up to the Devil and preach the whole Word of God. Pray that they will prepare the sheep for the slaughter…

ALLAH’S JESUS

Hell stared out through human eyes. Satan, the ancient enemy, now incarnate in the body of a man called Jesus. It was the ultimate coup; in the battle that had raged since before time, he was the victor.

ALLAH’S JESUS

DAVID A. RICE

JERUSALEM

Hell stared out through human eyes. Satan, the ancient enemy, now incarnate in the body of a man called Jesus. It was the ultimate coup; in the battle that had raged since before time, he was the victor.

He sat at a dressing table in the Royal Waiting Room. Like the surrounding temple, the room was magnificent. The trappings of royalty surrounded him, gold and silver, jewels, priceless rugs, and paintings worth millions of Euros abounded in overstuffed abandon.

He was no Shepherd born in a stable; he would have none of that.

As he stared at the human face in the mirror, he thought how the open wound above his right eye made him look like that Shepherd from Galilee. Although not scarred beyond recognition, he too would have a visible scar. It pleased him to think that this was a more handsome body than the Nazarene had used. This body was tall and solidly built. Light skinned with the features of an Arab prince. Only that open sore kept the visage from being perfect. The wound proved the resurrection; it was enough.

This book is out of date and I no longer believe the story…

That said, it is a good story… You can buy it on Amazon or click the link and read the original manuscript for free…

The Road to Dystopia…

We will be destroyed but what does the road to Dystopia look like and how do we endure to the end?

This morning’s class…

Long Term Plan

Can you lay out that plan, see the past, understand the present, and foretell where we are going?

Everything you see today is part of a long term plan that has been developing since the day God told Satan that the Seed of the Woman would crush his head… Can you lay out that plan, see the past, understand the present, and foretell where we are going?

  • The fall of Adam.
  • God tells of the coming Seed.
  • Genesis 6, Fallen Angels, Nephilim and Gibborum.
  • The Flood.
  • Babel.
  • Giants in the Land.
  • Moses fails to destroy the Nephilim.
  • Mega Kingdoms.
  • The Seed.
  • The Church.
  • Two races:
    • The Nephilim Elite, Royal families, bankers, and Presidents.
    • The Human Race, everyone else (useless eaters).
  • Twin Towers merged into one, symbolizing two races merged into one.
  • Plagues, inoculations, death, and Human 2.0.
  • Armageddon, Rapture, Return, Judgment, and Rule.

You could add hundreds of steps to that list… It would remain one story… It is not a collection of isolated stories… it is one single story.

You understand that Satan is still trying to undo Babel and unite the world… This was the dream of Alexander the Great and every Roman Caesar. This was the dream of the Holy Roman Empire and the Roman Catholic Church. This is the dream of Pope Francis and the prophets and apostles of the New Apostolic Reformation. This is the goal of Seven Mountaineers. This was the goal of Mohammad and remains the goal of Muslims everywhere… This is the goal of the Jesuits and the Master Masons. This was George Washington’s goal and the goal of all of the founding fathers… This is Trump’s goal and Biden’s goal… This is Satan’s goal…

Scripture tells us that Apollyon (Apollo) will escape and bring the world together… For about seven years, the world will be united. Then comes Armageddon, the Return and rule of Jesus and the Millennial Reign…

If you know the back story, can connect today’s headlines with Scripture and you know the end… figuring out what kind of things happen next is a very easy task… just fill in the blanks.

Think about it!

Rapture Timing

Eisegesis, driven by irrational fear and unmitigated wishful thinking, is a powerful tool of deception and perhaps the greatest weapon of the Devil…

Fear and Wishful Thinking

The greater my commitment to the truth and longer I search for truth, the more convinced I am that no one ever goes to the Scripture with an open heart and mind and comes away believing in a PreTrib Rapture.

Those who believe in a PreTrib Rapture were taught the doctrine of a PreTrib Rapture before they ever went to the Scriptures. Without exception, they go to the Bible already fully convinced of a PreTrib Rapture and determined to prove that which they already believe.

This is called eisegesis. Eisegesis is unilaterally condemned and universally applied. We start with what we believe and search the Scriptures for verses and passages that would seem to support our preconceived notions…

Although PreTrib is not the only example of that, i.e. we might include infant baptism or eternal security, PreTrib is the most egregious example. Driven by an unrealistic fear of the Tribulation and wishful thinking, the list of prooftexts collected by the PreTrib believers is awesome. Hundreds of verses collected in dozens of combinations… Prooftext on top of Prooftext.

But the reality remains, several websites have been offering thousands of dollars to anyone who can come up with any verse or passage that places the Rapture before the Tribulation. They are all still in possession of their funds. The truth is that no such verse or passage exists.

What the PreTribbers give us are lists of verses that say that God is good, combined with verses that say that there will be a rapture. They say that we are not destined for wrath, but the passage they quote juxtaposes that wrath with Heaven. The opposite of Heaven is not the Tribulation but Hell and the everlasting Lake of Fire.

Nowhere do they find anything that remotely indicates that God must rapture us before the Tribulation. In fact, the opposite is true; Scripture clearly indicates that we will go through tribulation, that we will be hated by all nations, that we will be handed over to be killed, and even that it is our own relatives who will betray us…

Revelation tells us that the Antichrist will make war against the Saints and overcome them… Nowhere, outside of the Left Behind books and movies, will you find mention of anything like a “Tribulation Saint”. These Saints are the Church of Jesus Christ…

1 Corinthians 15:52 tells us that we will be gathered “at the last trump.” The last trump sounds when Jesus descends at Armageddon… If you insist on a PreTrib Rapture you must accept that having been raptured, we are somehow returned to earth and grave in order to be raised at the Last Trump!

2 Thessalonians 2 tells us that we cannot be gathered to the Lord until after the Man of Sin is revealed. It even tells us that he will be revealed when he sits in the Temple, as if he were God, proclaiming himself to be God. Until and unless you see that happen, you cannot be gathered to him… That is plain as day.

Mark 13:27 And he will send his angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens.

Matthew 24:29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

In the passage from Matthew, the gathering of the Elect is specifically and undisputedly placed “Immediately after the tribulation of those days…”

No, if you go to the Bible with an open heart and an open mind, you will understand that the Rapture cannot happen before the Tribulation… Clear and plain Scripture makes that impossible. If, on the other hand, you are convinced of a PreTrib Rapture, you will go to the Bible to prove it and you will end up with a string of verses that say that there will be a rapture and another string of verses that say that God is good… You will mix up those lists and insist that your list proves that the Rapture has to be before the Tribulation…

Eisegesis, driven by irrational fear and unmitigated wishful thinking, is a powerful tool of deception and perhaps the greatest weapon of the Devil…

Think about it!
