News and Notes Update: February 1, 2021

Understand please that when I say the PreTrib Rapture, I am talking about the Lord taking His Church/Body to be with Him prior to the pouring out of His WRATH. The Bible says “day of the Lord” is the start of God pouring out His wrath onto humanity and this earth. It is not a particular “day” but a period of time; the seven year Tribulation period. The entirety of that seven years is the pouring out of God’s wrath and note, all events of the Tribulation are directed by God from His throne room as evidenced by the fact that the apostle John is called up to heaven to begin viewing those events from that vantage point (Rev 4).

So, while the Church is fully exempt from all aspects of God’s wrath, we are not exempt from tribulation (small “t”) and persecution in this life. In fact, we are promised tribulation (Matthew 10:16-42; John 15:20; 2 Timothy 3:12; see also Revelation 2:10). Persecution is promised. If you are not at all being persecuted for being a Christian, maybe your circle of friends is too small. Maybe you’re not being an effective witness for Christ. I’m not trying to make you feel guilty. I’m simply noting that you may wish to take a look at things. Are you afraid to stand up for Jesus? Are you unwilling to speak out against the things that society has said we cannot be “negative” about? I’m not saying to go looking for persecution. I’m simply saying be prepared for the fact that if you’re not suffering for it now, it may well be on the way.

Replacement Theology Creates False Hopes

Notice Wood says “God is going to The One to bring about the Great Awakening AND the Great Reset…” I have no idea who he thinks “The One” is here. Is it Donald J. Trump? Is it Jesus? Who is he referring to? We simply don’t know. However, from the comments he received on this post, many people are in agreement with him and very excited and encouraged about what he has to say! To me, this marks the emergence of the “great falling away,” (Matthew 24:10-13; 1 Timothy 4:1-5; 2 Thessalonians 2:3), because so many seem not to know their Bibles and prefer teaching that tickles their ears (2 Timothy 3:1-5).

Modern Christian Mysticism Stems from Existentialism

The mystic becomes his own determiner of truth (his own god). He needs nothing outside of himself to verify his experiences. He leans heavily on his own inner feelings to determine the veracity of his experiences. If an experience seems good to him, it is good. The Bible is secondary, at best, if used at all.

New Age, Dominionism, and NAR – Twisting Truth

What many Christians fail to realize is how much Satan has counterfeited the things that are very much patterned on Scripture, with a twist of course. Jesus spoke of the “beginning of birth pangs” in His Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21), and the New Age speaks of a great upheaval prior to the “birth” of the new age, what they believe is the Age of Aquarius.

It’s All About Dominionism, Kingdom Now, and the New Apostolic Reformation, Part 4

There are frankly, too many of these Dominionist organizations and offshoots to keep up with and we are overwhelmed with their fear daily. It’s enough to make you want to drop anything to do with simple evangelism and work on turning this country around, isn’t it? That’s the plan, which I believe was spawned in hell. Create Fear. Call to Arms. Take Back Society. It’s always interesting to hear how many of these organizations have “apostles” and “prophets” too. The implication is that you do not disagree with an apostle and you certainly do not question or counter the word of a prophet. Because of that, there is a built-in pseudo-authoritarian-like atmosphere within many, if not all of these organizations. God has “anointed” them and their leaders. How dare you (or I) question their methods, motives, and goals even if it doesn’t align with Scripture!

It’s All About Dominionism, Kingdom Now, and the New Apostolic Reformation, Part 3

People like C. Peter Wagner do not appear to understand why things are unfolding as they are unfolding in the world. I believe the reason has to do with an erroneous focus of Scripture. These folks see the Great Commission as a tool to increase the Lord’s Army in order to take the world back for God. They do not necessarily see the Great Commission as an end in and of itself, one that brings tremendous glory to God as more lost souls are brought into the heavenly kingdom via salvation.

It’s All About Dominionism, Kingdom Now, and the New Apostolic Reformation, Part 2

Evil isn’t winning. Though it may seem that way, it is far from it. It’s all part of God’s plan and He does not need any of us to carry it out though He has chosen to use some who will answer His call. In fact, while He graciously allows us to be part of the picture (and doesn’t have to), He in no way expects us to carry the brunt of the work anymore than He expects us to earn our salvation. You didn’t earn your salvation, right? Jesus literally bought it for you. You received it what He bought. Satan will receive the consequences of Christ’s victory at some point in the future. For now, God allows Satan to live as though he is still in control, but his end is certain (Revelation 20:10).

It’s All About Dominionism, Kingdom Now, and the New Apostolic Reformation, Part 1

Consider just how much Jesus fulfilled in His life – all the prophecies concerning Him found in the Old Testament; and He did this against all the power of hell and the sin natures possessed by all people – and then tell me that God is in any way limited. From the beginning of the Bible to the end, God always gets His work done, even if everyone is destroyed except one person – Noah – and his family! God always reserves for Himself a remnant of believers who stand with God. His purposes have never been thwarted and they will never be thwarted either. Dominionism says otherwise.

What Are We to Think of the Prophets and Apostles that Exist Today? Part 4

But here we are because we think the Holy Spirit lives within us (He does if we are actually saved), then He will guide us into all truth. We discount our fallen, sinful natures that exist right alongside of our new natures deep within us. Feelings will lead us astray. God’s Word won’t, if we are willing to obey it.

Christians need to stop focusing on things that cater to our fallen natures. Feelings or emotions – when used to determine truth – will fail more times than they might succeed. We must use His Word, not the way we feel about something. His Word will not fail. Rather than give heed to some person who believes they have been given apostolic authority or mantled with the title “prophet,” take what they teach and actually compare it to God’s Word.

And They Say The PreTrib Rapture is THE Deception!

What creates lazy and unspiritual Christians is listening to, and heed to seducing spirits, who preach another gospel. That other gospel is found within the New Age Movement, which has surrepticiously made its way into the visible Church.
