Origins Of Christian Zionism Exposed: Dispensational Eschatology Contradicts 2K Years Of Doctrine

Jeremy Slayden is here to talk about how Christian Protestantism was subverted by Manuel Lacunza, Darby, and Scofield which resulted in modern day Christian Zionism.

Timeline: Invention of the ‘Rapture’ idea

Rapture-removal is not the historic teaching of the Church. One of the more astonishing facts in the history of eschatological thought, and one that most Christians are unaware of, is that the idea of “a secret pre-tribulation, Rapture removal from the earth of the Church” is a fairly recent theory in Church history. In theological circles, it’s a “Johnny come lately.” Even the historic creeds, conspicuously, don’t mention it. In fact, it was relatively unheard of and never taught until the early 19th century, and it didn’t become widespread until the 20th century. Since then, it has spread like wildfire. But the many failed predictions of its coming have made it an embarrassment.

(vid & text) Gaza Made Simple For Christians by Ted Pike (2009) — Real history & God’s CONDITIONAL terms still apply to Israel

Video Script

Claims and counterclaims surround the recent crisis in Gaza. Yet, we can’t understand the right or wrong of events in the troubled Mideast without knowing God’s spiritual law about Palestine. This law was repeatedly set forth over 3000 years ago.

If you are a Christian, you must take the Bible very seriously — as the written word of God. Jesus said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My Word shall not pass away.” (Mark 13:31) This means the eternal truths laid down thousands of years ago in Holy Scripture remain true.

Yet, many evangelical Christians say God’s law no longer applies to the modern state of Israel. What law am I talking about? In the Old Testament, God repeatedly instructed His people, the Israelites, that the land of Canaan was to be holy. It could only be occupied by a holy, obedient people. When they rebelled, God allowed them to be driven out. They could only reenter in repentance. [1] God says that if Israel rebels, “The Lord will scatter you among the nations”(Deut. 4:27). But if they repent, “The Lord your God will restore you from captivity” (Deut. 30:3).

2,700 Year-old, 1/3rd Mile Hezekiah’s Tunnel in Jerusalem — I waded through it in ~1983

I don’t remember it being a formal site back then. Two Palestinian boys told me where it was. My Abbott Loop Bible teacher, John Owen told suggested I walk it, who was kind enough to let me stay with him for 10 days in Jerusalem.

The water was sometimes above my knees. Two teams dug from opposite ends, and where they met can be seen, because the alignment jags there, but not by much, which I found impressive — maybe only a foot or so (it’s been 40 years)?

What’s With The Kissing In The Bible?

What’s With The Kissing In The Bible?

David and Jonathan kissed.

Judas kissed Jesus.

Jesus commented once that the owner of the house didn’t greet him with a kiss.

Paul tells us to greet one another with a holy kiss.

What’s with all the kissing in the Bible? …

No. These are not examples of homosexuality within the Bible. …

Does This PROVE the ‘Shroud of Turin’ is REAL? — Debate over the Shroud appears to be over. “This is the burial shroud of the historic Jesus of Nazareth”

Is the debate over the Shroud of Turin over? Many Christians believe it was the burial cloth of Jesus and even non-Christian scientists struggle to explain how the image of a man was imposed onto it. But some scientists have claimed that carbon dating has proven it is much younger than previously thought. However, Shroud of Turin Research Project Official Photographer Barrie Schwortz joins Glenn to explain why he’s refuting that claim. According to Schwortz, who was once a “total skeptic” of the Shroud, the carbon dating was improperly done. Instead, he believes the most plausible explanation is simple: “This is the burial shroud of the historic Jesus of Nazareth.”

 

I just updated & expanded: The Didache (70-100 AD): Reconciliation was required to attend early church meetings! “Let no one who is at odds with his fellow come together with you, until they be reconciled, that your sacrifice may not be profaned”

Is The Didache a blueprint for the way churches should be?

This is one of the writings of “the early Christian fathers” that I especially liked. It’s big on unity!

What if we compare The Didache to what is practiced in today’s ‘churches?’ 

But every Lord’s day gather yourselves together, and break bread, and give thanksgiving after having confessed your transgressions, that your sacrifice may be pure. But let no one who is at odds with his fellow come together with you, until they be reconciled, that your sacrifice may not be profaned.

Is there even one ‘church’ in America that requires reconciliation? How many pastors have fully reconciled so they’re qualified to lead?

The Didache mentions prophets being a common leadership ministry in the late first century church (like Ephesians 4:11). Where are they in today’s churches?

The Didache also has “the way of death” list that is similar to Paul’s “will not inherit the Kingdom” list in Galatians 5.

What swallowed Jonah? A sperm whale or an extinct sea creature? || Did Jonah die for 3 days and was resurrected like Jesus?

I just saw a meme that claims whales’ throats aren’t large enough to swallow a human, specifically Jonah in the Bible story (Jonah 1 & 2), but sperm whales’ throats are large enough, and about 200 live in the Mediterranean Sea today.

“The only known whale that has a large enough throat to swallow an adult is the Sperm Whale” (source)

An extinct sea creature could have also swallowed Jonah. I highly recommend James Perloff’s book, Missing Saints, Missing Miracles to read historical accounts of incredible miracles that most people have never heard of, including with large, now extinct creatures.

Jonah also likely died while in the belly of the “great fish” for 3 days, a type and symbol of Jesus’ body being in the grave for 3 days.

Calvary Chapel’s ‘Don’t Talk’ Rule: Even “In a situation where something in the church is so completely wrong that the sheep in the body are in spiritual danger, then say nothing to anybody, resign, and move on”

Related: Joe Schimmel: The cultlike ‘don’t talk’ rule — protecting unrepentant pastors & false teaching from “gossip”

(Note: Larry Taylor has since repented of the this book and it’s contents and left CC)

7. Never Gossip

Gossip is a sin that most of us feel we are not guilty of, and which most of us are very guilty of. Gossip may be defined as saying anything negative, whether true or not, to anyone about the pastor or about the ministry. If there are things wrong, take it to the Lord in prayer. Tell absolutely no one, including your spouse. Do not repeat anything that would cast aspersion on the ministry in any way. Doing so dishonors Christ and His cause.

But, you say, what do you do if there are real problems? Pray about them and forget them. If that doesn’t work, take your concerns directly and only to the pastor himself, and share with him honestly. If that doesn’t work, resign, and move on. Under no circumstances should you ever say anything negative about the pastor or the ministry to anyone, even after you’ve quit.

In a situation where something in the church is so completely wrong that the sheep in the body are in spiritual danger, then say nothing to anybody, resign, and move on. If the church is a Calvary Chapel affiliate, then take your concerns and share them privately with Pastor Chuck or with Oden Fong, then drop it; leave it alone. Let them handle it. Trust God. He’ll correct the situation. But do not gossip. It is a terrible sin before God.

The Story Of The Waldenses: “Many gave their lives for the truths of God”

A Seventh Day Adventist friend suggested this true story of the persecution of this Christian group, who refused to succumb to Catholic church persecution: “Go to mass or you die” — helping us appreciated the title ‘protestant.’

NOTE: I don’t believe it matters what day of the week people worship on, which the 7th Day Adventists consider crucially important. We’re living in the new covenant, when we’re supposed to be led by the Holy Spirit, not the old covenant law.

Also, the book of Revelation scriptures shown will likely be fulfilled in the future, instead of in the past, as this video implies. Minute-41:00 is an example, which some predict will the the bride of Christ taken into the wilderness during, or even just before the tribulation (instead of the rapture).

Did It Rain before the Flood?  What Generated the Preflood Mist?

Did It Rain before the Flood?  What Generated the Preflood Mist?

Genesis 2:5–6 suggests that it did not rain before the flood

[5 No plant of the field was yet in the earth, and no herb of the field had yet sprung up; for Yahweh God had not caused it to rain on the earth. There was not a man to till the ground, but a mist went up from the earth, and watered the whole surface of the ground.]

Now no shrub of the field was yet in the earth, and no plant of the field had yet sprouted, for the Lord God had not sent rain upon the earth; and there was no man to cultivate the ground. But a mist used to rise from the earth and water the whole surface of the ground.1 [emphasis added] …

Rainbows God promised never again to flood the entire Earth (Genesis 9:12–17), a promise marked by a “bow in the cloud”—a rainbow. Rainbows form when raindrops refract sunlight. This suggests that rainbows began after the flood, and there was no preflood rain. …

A Terrarium The Hebrew word translated “mist”($!), in Genesis 2:6, occurs in only one other place in the Bible—Job 36:27, where it clearly means water vapor. So, did the preflood Earth act as a humid terrarium in which water vapor evaporated, condensed as dew without rainfall, and watered the Earth?  Could an Earth-size terrarium…

CREATION SCIENCE: THE PRE-FLOOD WORLD – Christian Apologetics Study

CREATION SCIENCE 101: THE PRE-FLOOD WORLD

Before the global worldwide Flood of Noah’s generation, the planet Earth was very different from the post-flood world that we observe today. According to the young Earth creation science researchers, the pre-flood Earth had a large human population in the billions. It was filled with tame animals. It had a thin crystalline water canopy shielding the planet from deadly radiation. It had a single supercontinent or landmass and a single super ocean. Its surface geography was less rugged with a more stable crust. And it had more edible and nutritious plants than the post-flood world. These superior environmental global conditions on Earth contributed to the longevity among human populations, which also facilitated the gigantism found among the pre-flood plant and animal fossil records. …

And God called the firmament Heaven.” (Gen.1:6-8a)

Footage of Sodom & Gomorrah – Ron Wyatt’s wife tells the story

About 30 years ago, I saw this from on top of Masada, and asked others what this city ruin was. No one knew. It definitely looked like the ruin of a city to me.

“For, behold, the day comes, it burns as a furnace; and all the proud, and all who work wickedness, will be stubble; and the day that comes will burn them up,” says Yahweh of Armies, “that it shall leave them neither root nor branchBut to you who fear my name shall the sun of righteousness arise with healing in its wings. You will go out, and leap like calves of the stall. You shall tread down the wicked; for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I make,” says Yahweh of Armies.

Ron Wyatt, his sons and wife describe the adventure! Ron has since died.

When Ron Wyatt 1st went to Turkey to search for the boat-shaped object he had seen 17 years earlier in Life Magazine, he had no idea where to look. He didn’t speak the language. All he knew was that it was in the mountains. Then, one simple prayer, as he and his 2 sons entered the area in a taxi, led to incredible discoveries, all connected to Noah and the ark. Ron and his sons, Danny and Ronnie tell the story and some new information is shared, especially at the end. Originally made for Warriors for Christ, it is long, and I thank you for watching and hope you enjoy!- Mary Nell (Mrs. Ron Wyatt) Lee.

Genesis 6:15 says the ark shall be 300 cubits, which is what this artifact is in Egyptian cubits.

Acts 7:22 “And Moses (author of Genesis) was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians….” Was raised as an Egyptian.

This boat artifact is exactly 515 feet long!

40:15 Noah’s wife’s grave explained. She was a giant. Her sarcophagus was 18 feet long. [Elsewhere it’s said she was 15 feet long. Kent Hovind explains why in his creation series.] Gold and jewels in her coffin were sold by the “Christians” for $100 million on the black market in Istanbul.

Alaska Watchman: 2020 exposed a festering disease in America — Christianity was the glue that held the nation together – de Tocqueville

2020 exposed a festering disease in America

This past winter the world began to change before our very eyes as the specter of an unknown global pandemic struck fear into the hearts of men. Lockdowns and closures – unthinkable in modern America – reshaped our lives overnight.

[…]

The events of this past year exposed a festering disease which has long-been weakening our body politic to the point that we now struggle to summon the necessary strength to restore our health. Things were not going well before 2020, but much of the country was oblivious.

One hundred and ninety years ago, a French writer sailed across the Atlantic to try and understand this bold new experiment called America. Alexis de Tocqueville wanted to see what sort of people could found and sustain a nation which was unlike any other in the history of the world.

He was not primarily interested in saving souls or defending any one particular church or denomination. But he, like our founding fathers, noted one fundamental reality about this new form of representative democracy. It would collapse, he said, if the people abandoned their Christian faith.

Christianity was the glue that held the nation together – the common set of values that justified the equality of all mankind under God. It provided a moral framework that protected individual liberties, while instilling a sense of moral duty to our fellow man. Without this foundation, Tocqueville predicted that a secular representative democracy would create citizens who were hyper individualist, preoccupied with material gain and willing to trample the Natural moral laws of the universe if they could only secure a tyrannical majority. Might would become right in the absence of a higher authority.

America’s religious institutions have been weakening for several generations now. Church attendance is falling, and many younger Americans know next to nothing about Christianity. We can no longer afford to neglect our churches and our prayers. Our children must be forged in faith and a deep love for God whose commands transcend all state and earthly powers.

Without this we cannot possibly save our souls, let alone the heart of this great nation.

STORY

Tertullian: Church Life in 197 AD – “See how they love one another,” they say about us. “They are ready even to die for one another”

Tertullian, writing in 197 AD, talks about what church was like.

– –

Tertullian, The Apology, Chapter 39

We are a body knit together as such by a common religious profession, by unity of discipline, and by the bond of a common hope. We meet together as an assembly and congregation, that, offering up prayer to God as with united force, we may wrestle with Him in our supplications. This strong exertion God delights in. We pray, too, for the emperors, for their ministers and for all in authority, for the welfare of the world, for the prevalence of peace, for the delay of the final consummation.

We assemble to read our sacred writings, if any peculiarity of the times makes either forewarning or reminiscence needful. However it be in that respect, with the sacred words we nourish our faith, we animate our hope, we make our confidence more steadfast; and no less by inculcations of God’s precepts we confirm good habits.

In the same place also exhortations are made, rebukes and sacred censures are administered. For with a great gravity is the work of judging carried on among us, as befits those who feel assured that they are in the sight of God; and you have the most notable example of judgment to come when anyone has sinned so grievously as to require his severance from us in prayer, in the congregation and in all sacred intercourse. The tried men of our elders preside over us, obtaining that honour not by purchase but by established character.

There is no buying and selling of any sort in the things of God. Though we have our treasure-chest, it is not made up of purchase-money, as of a religion that has its price. [Old covenant tithing not practiced – ed.] On the monthly day, if he likes, each puts in a small donation; but only if it be his pleasure, and only if he be able: for there is no compulsion; all is voluntary. These gifts are, as it were, piety’s deposit fund. For they are not taken thence and spent on feasts, and drinking-bouts, and eating-houses, but to support and bury poor people, to supply the wants of boys and girls destitute of means and parents, and of old persons confined now to the house; such, too, as have suffered shipwreck; and if there happen to be any in the mines or banished to the islands or shut up in the prisons, for nothing but their fidelity to the cause of God’s Church, they become the nurslings of their confession.

But it is mainly the deeds of a love so noble that lead many to put a brand upon us. See, they say, how they love one another, for they themselves are animated by mutual hatred. See, they say about us, how they are ready even to die for one another, for they themselves would sooner kill.
