Pre Trib false Doctrine

THE BELIEF IN THE RAPTURE: THE SEVEN YEAR TRIBULATION AND THE LITERAL 1000 YEAR REIGN OF CHRIST, DISPENSATIONALISM OR THE "LEFT BEHIND" IDEA Origin: 1830's. In the 1830s, a Scottish visionary, who belonged to a sect known as the Irvingites, claimed while in a trance that the rapture or gathering to be with Christ would occur before the period of persecution. This position, now known as the "pre-tribulational" view, was embraced by John Nelson Darby, an ex-Anglican priest and one of the early leaders of a Fundamentalist movement which became known as Dispensationalism. Darby's pre-tribulational view of the rapture was then picked up by a man named C. I. Scofield, who taught the view in the footnotes of his Scofield Reference Bible, which was widely distributed in England and America. Many Protestants who read the Scofield Bible uncritically accepted what its footnotes said and adopted the pre-tribulational view, *even though no Christian had heard of it in the previous 1800 years of Church history*. Eventually, a third position developed, known as the "mid-tribulational" view, which claims that the rapture will occur during the middle of the Tribulation. Finally, a fourth view developed which claims that there will not be a single rapture where all believers are gathered to Christ, but that there will be a series of mini-raptures that occur at different times with respect to the Tribulation. This belief was something completely new in Christianity. No previous Christian, Catholic and Protestant alike, had ever proposed or taught about such an event. Christ was to come in the clouds ,but once, at the end of the world, just like the Holy Bible tells us. The problem is that most Christians have no idea what the coming in the clouds was symbolic for. You would think they would know if they read the old testament. The following are scriptures where God talked about coming in the clouds and the sun, moon and stars falling are not giving their light. I’m only putting brief scriptures if you want to read the whole article go to www. apostolicpreterist.com and click on coming in the clouds.-

1. God Comes to Judge Nineveh – 600's BC The burden of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite. 2God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies. 3The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.

God Comes to Judge Edom in the Time of Nebuchadnezzar - 500s BC

Yahweh is enraged against all the nations, and angry with all their armies. He has utterly destroyed them. He has given them over for slaughter. Their slain will also be cast out, and the stench of their dead bodies will come up; and the mountains will melt in their blood. All of the host of heaven will be dissolved. The heavens will be rolled up like a scroll

Ezekiel 30:3 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying, 2Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Howl ye, Woe worth the day! 3For the day is near, even the day of the LORD is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen.

Jeremiah 4:13-14

13Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are swifter than eagles. Woe unto us! for we are spoiled. 14O Jerusalem, wash thine heart from wickedness, that thou mayest be saved. How long shall thy vain thoughts lodge within thee

God Comes to Judge Egypt in the Time of Nebuchadnezzar - 500s BC

The day is near, even the day of the LORD is near; It will be a day of clouds, a time of doom for the nations. A sword will come upon Egypt, and anguish will be in Ethiopia; When the slain fall in Egypt...And they will know that I am the LORD, when I set a fire in Egypt...I will also make the hordes of Egypt cease by the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon. He and his people with him, the most ruthless of the nations, will be brought in to destroy the land; and they will draw their swords against Egypt and fill the land with the slain. (Ezekiel 30:3-4,8, 10-11)

There is a lot more times in the old testament where God sent a prophet to warn a nation of their coming judgment if they didn't repent. If they didn't he then judged a group of people, using another nations army. This is what happened to Israel. Jesus and his disciples warned them of their upcoming doom. They had crucified their messiah and were persecuting Gods people who had accepted the new covenant and when they didn't repent he sent the Roman soldiers in 70 A.D and they destroyed Jerusalem, the temple, Gods old covenant people and the temple. Jesus didn't need any of them or the temple anymore. People were saved by his blood, not the blood of bulls and goats. His people were now the heavenly Jerusalem and Gentiles and Jews that believe the New covenant of salvation. When he used the Roman soldiers that was the coming in the cloud. It was symbolic in the old testament and in the new for judgment. The point is, when God came in the clouds it was always even in bible prophecy a coming in judgment against a nation. This is exactly what Jesus meant when he said he was coming in the clouds of heaven. The clouds was his presence. He was also coming for his people to restore them back to spiritual life, where they would die . Even though they would physically die. Their soul/spirit would continue living instead of staying in the ground. The high priest asked him “are you the son of God? do we wait for another?” and Jesus replied “ You will see me coming in the clouds of heaven.” What did Jesus mean by that, if he was not talking about coming in the lifetime of the High Priest? Jesus said those who pierced Him would see him coming in the clouds. Jesus said to his disciples some of you standing here will not taste of death until you see me coming in the kingdom. Jesus told the disciples “they wouldn’t finish preaching through the streets of Israel until the son of man comes.” Jesus told a woman who was crying weep not for me but for yourselves and your children cause a day will come when they will cry fo the rocks to fall on them to hide them from the wrath of God. This is quoted about the people living in the time of Revelation. They cried out for the rocks to fall on them and hide them from the wrath of God. Jesus said after telling them what would happen in the last days “all this will come on this generation.” In chapter 23 of Matthew. Then in Matthew 24 after talking about him coming in the clouds he said “this generation shall not pass away till all these things be fulfilled. My point is this, in the old testament and in the bible prophecy that was for the people who had lived in the last days it was prophesied that God would come riding on a cloud or it would be a cloudy day, a day of the Lord, the sun moon and stars would fall or not giving their light. When God comes in the clouds it was for judgment, so when the sun, moon and stars fell it was symbolic of their being a change in ruler ship when the king goes over them would be destroyed. In Genesis it said that stars were for signs and seasons to rule the day and night. Joseph had a dream of the sun and moon (his mom and dad) and the 11 stars (his older brothers) bowing down to him. (in other words he would be over his whole family when he was the youngest. That is why it made them so upset, but when he became a ruler next to Pharaoh it came true. When Jesus was born there was a new star in the sky, because he was going to be a new king (ruler). but his last coming was also for his people, not only to free them from their persecution, but to restore them back to spiritual life that they lost in the garden of Eden. On Mt Sinai God married the old covenant people under the law and ten commandment was his marriage vow to them. He made a way for the God of heaven to be able to be on earth in the Ark of the covenant. He wasn’t satisfied in the ark or even in Solomens temple. He said he wanted to dwell in a temple not made by hands. When he came on the day of Pentecost it was a type of engagement and God dwelt within humans which was his desire. When God came back he came so we could dwell within him. He was coming to marry his new bride under the new covenant .In revelation it says that god invited the birds to the Supper of the Lamb to dine on dead Kings and soldiers. In Revelation God judged Israel using the old covenant. I will explain this in another article. Jesus died in 30 A.D exactly one generation later he came the same way he did in the old testament. He stirred up another nations army (The Romans) to kill his people that rejected him and his new covenant and persecuted and killed him and his saints. The first century church went through the tribulation for 3 ½ years and in 70 A.D the Christians escaped Jerusalem and went to a near by city called Pella according to history, but the rest were burned by fire. Just like the Parables of the wedding feast, the wheat and the tares, the wedding feast. They were burned in the fires of 70 A.D. Jesus preached then new covenant plan of salvation for 3 ½ years when he was cut off killed in the midst of Daniel’s 70th week .Jesus was the last blood sacrifice God accepted. The bible says “the blood of bulls and goats can never bring forgiveness of sin, only he can.” He doesn’t want the temple in Israel rebuilt. According to the bible if you are saved you are of Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise. “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

"If you are of me then you are of Jesus' seed and heir according to the promise.” That means all Jews and Gentiles who get saved are Gods people. Not the people who live in Jerusalem and call themselves Jews. The Jews by race on the most part were killed in 70 A.D Jewish Roman war. The ones that were left were scattered across the world and by now have intermingled with Gentiles and are more Gentiles than Jewish. The people that call themselves the Jews in Israel and throughout the world are Gentiles that during the 7th century converted to Judaism. They admit it in there Jewish writings that I have on my website. The Jewish man that wrote the 13th tribe which got a 5 star rating from almost all the magazines and newspapers. Also , the Jewish writings I have on my other articles . In all honesty the Gentiles were just a nation of people who supposedly believed false religions. The bible says Abraham was a Chaldeening from Ur, which was a Gentile nation, but God gave Abraham and Issac (Jacob) a pure faith that set them part as a nation, but did not change their DNA.
