DOOMSDAY: May 21st 2011????? Could it be true? Is it Possible?

DOOMSDAY
May 21st 2011
Is the End just months away? Or is this Web-site just another nut-job prophet site, like all the other BAD guesses from the past?
Here are some other links teaching this doctrine:
Before I begin this study let me say that some of the content on this site is for real (That’s the carrot! ). But SATAN himself can offer great points as to why he’s not so bad after all. That does not mean however that every word is correct in regards to the end times, in fact its so twisted in places it resembles Jim Jones!
WHY IS IT THAT EVERY FEW YEARS A NEW REVELATION OF THE TIME OF HIS http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0892212136&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrCOMING POP’S UP FROM NO WHERE AND CLAIMS TO BE THE WORD FROM GOD?
Is it even possible that this one could be right? Well, yes in the sense that even a BROKEN CLOCK is right TWICE A DAY, at some point the dates MIGHT MATCH but who knows….Ohhh, he does, sorry! The real question is DO I NEED TO KNOW to share in the event? I say a resounding NO!
From his PDF file teaching the following comment is made:
“No one except God knows the time of the end of the world. How does anyone dare to teach that the Rapture and the Day of Judgment will occur on May 21, 2011? Doesn’t the Bible say very plainly that no one can know the day or the hour of Christ’s return?
Indeed the Bible did teach that……  NO MAN KNOWS THE DAY OR THE HOUR?” 
What he’s saying is NOW in this time this scripture doesn’t mean what it says, because God planned to CHANGE HIS MIND about who he revealed his timing too, wasn’t the Apostle Paul good enough? You would think that the men and women of the early church who gave the ultimate sacrifice would meet the criteria of trustworthiness FAR BETTER THAN US!
In Acts 1:7  
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0830816216&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrAnd He said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in His own power.
Ecclesiastes 8:5:

“Whoso keepeth the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man’s heart discerneth both time and judgment.

Let’s be real here, this verse does not mean that WE can automatically know everything God knows UNLESS he chooses to let you know it, so discern away, God has it hidden! But you can know the Times and Seasons which the Father has chosen to reveal to us NOT to his Enemies because those times are not important to the battle ahead.
He said about this verse:
“From these verses we learn that during the church age there would be a great curiosity concerning the time of the end, but believers were not to be at all http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=076843209X&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrpreoccupied with this question. They were to concentrate and focus all of their attention on the task of bringing the Gospel to the whole world.
       Therefore, regardless of how brilliant or how learned a theologian or Bible student might have been, or how diligently they studied the Bible or faithfully served Christ, it was impossible to learn from the Bible the timetable for the end of the world. Anyone who claimed he knew the time of the end was always wrong.
While I can agree that there are things yet to be revealed about scripture, that truth alone is NO PROOF about the exact date of his coming. I’m also not saying that HE CANNOT come on the 21st of may, I hope he does for I am ready to go BUT emotions aside concerning the end times, if this man is basing ANY of his time-line on a DISPENSATIONAL TEACHING he’s wrong from the start  BECAUSE THIS FALSE DOCTRINE CAME FROM THE MIND OF MERE MEN, it was the invention of Francisco Ribera and Luis de Alcazar, both 16th-century Spanish Jesuits, rose to meet the challenge by introducing plausible counter interpretations of prophecy.
The following statement made me pause for a moment before commenting on it: “REMEMBER, God is very, very merciful and http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0875523595&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrloving. There is hope for anyone who humbly cries, who begs, and beseeches God that maybe they, too, might become saved.
This statement ALONE is revealing concerning his dogma, at least to me, as NO WHERE in scripture is a Christian ever seen in the light of a “Might be” or a “Could be Saved at the time of his coming” the bible is very clear that all those who have received Christ CAN NEVER BE LOST OR LEFT BEHIND BY GOD!
This argument is nothing new, similar claims have been made for decades, in 1988 a book claimed the exact same thing in exact same way, I don’t have to tell you Jesus didn’t come then and there’s no indication it will happen on May 21st ether. ALTHOUGH HE COULD if that’s the day God picked!


Let me be clear here, JESUS IS COMING BACK SOON, but we are not to know in advance WHEN…WHY? Simple, HE WANTS US READY 24/7, 365 Days a year for his coming NOT only when we know when, even if we did know this would STILL BE TRUE. I mean really, what kind of Christian would not want to be ready knowing or not so what’s point of knowing? Satan http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0915540509&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrdoesn’t know for good reason, he’s the enemy of all that is holy, that’s the whole reason for keeping it secret in the first place. Who do we think we are?

God is NOT going to reveal to us this secret because it would reveal to his enemy the date and time, how would that mess up God’s plans? Of course God could PLUG the devil’s ears so he can’t know it but is that even a biblical concept? There’s no mention of God in the last days having to keep Satan and His children from knowing of his coming, that’s because as Jesus said NO MAN KNOWS….PERIOD!

WE CAN KNOW THE TIMES AND SEASONS BECAUSE THAT IS NOT AN EXACT DATE AND TIME, ITS THE GENERAL TIMING OF HIS COMING. SEEING THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES DOESN’T REQUIRE EXACT DATES AND TIMES!

We are to be AWARE at all times that He could come any moment starting NOW! He could very well come on the 21st of May this year or the 21st of December 2012 or even today, that’s the rub here, Satan doesn’t know what God knows or his false Prophets in Astrology would always get it right! 
ANSWER….He wouldn’t!
Those who INSIST upon knowing reveal themselves as people who cannot live for God unless they know EVERY DETAIL OF EVERY DETAIL about all things, got news for ya! It isn’t going to happen, we cannot be trusted with all the facts, that’s how wars are fought and God’s war with Satan is no different. God would never LET HIS WORST ENEMY SATAN KNOW THIS FACT OR HE WOULD ATTEMPT TO TRUMP GOD ON THAT DATE, its simple common sense. We fight KNOWING only that God knows and that’s enough for me.
Here’s another problem from his Book
 “ We have learned that the precise date of the cross was April 1, 33 A.D. when coordinated with http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0875523749&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrour present modern calendar. April 1, 33 A.D. is the only date that meets all the requirements of the Bible, such as being a Friday that falls on the correct date for the Passover, which was the date Christ was to be crucified.”
“Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered,
saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. But he
answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous
generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be
given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: For as Jonas
was three days and three night in the whale’s belly; so shall
the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart
of the earth
” (Matthew 12:38-40).
The problem is that Christ WAS NOT CRUCIFIED on a Friday, he was Crucified on a Wednesday afternoon and died at 3pm was buried that afternoon before SUNDOWN, was in the GRAVE for THREE DAYS AND NIGHTS rising from the dead on SATURDAY MORNING THE SABBATH. 

CLICK HERE NOW…..
Read about the Good Friday Hoax……
Three Days and Three NightsWas Jesus in the grave for exactly three days and three nights?

“To the Torah and the Testimony!  If they do not speak according to this Word, it is because there is no light in them.”  YeshaYahu (Is.) 8:20
“Modern interpreters of the Bible make Jesus Christ a liar.
They say Jesus was crucified on Good Friday, buried about
sundown the same day, and arose on the next Sunday about
daybreak in contradiction to the Scriptures! Any schoolboy
knows that this is only two nights and one day missing the
night, which would be less than 72 hours.”
This alone throw’s off his time-line and shows that God didn’t seem to know when he was Crucified or was raised from the grave….Oh well! 
Not knowing this OBVIOUS mistake puts all of his ideas in question, how many other mistakes has he made? It will not be long before we all know the real truth but HOW WILL HE EXPLAIN THE BLUNDER AFTER THE 21ST? Probably the same way others have, by saying the timing was off because of this change here or that issue there instead of admitting I WAS WRONG TO EVEN GUESS AT IT IN THE FIRST PLACE!
Humble pie is on the Menu VERY SOON!

Truth Left Behind: End Time Problems exposed!

Truth Left Behindby Pastor Steve Wohlberg

An Amazing Fact:

The nation was shocked by a tragedy in late March 1997 when 39 members of the Heaven’s Gate cult took their own lives. 

The cult members committed suicide by downing fatal doses of a lethal cocktail mixture of phenobarbital and vodka. Heaven’s Gate members sincerely believed that Hale-Bopp, an unusually bright comet, was a sign that they were supposed to leave their earthly bodies (or “containers”) and be raptured up to a spacecraft traveling behind the comet that would take them to a higher plane of existence. 

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0768429609&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrA message posted on their website stated that “Hale-Bopp’s approach is the ‘marker’ we’ve been waiting for-the time for the arrival of the spacecraft from the Level Above Human to take us home to ‘Their World’ in the literal Heavens.” They sincerely believed the comet marked their “graduation” from the Human Evolutionary Level.

“We are happily prepared to leave ‘this world’,” wrote cult leader Marshall Applewhite (alias “Do”), who quoted selectively from the Bible and various episodes of Star Trek to support his teachings that they would be raptured to this invisible spacecraft. 


All around the world, people are struggling to understand the Bible’s end-time prophecies. Christians everywhere sense that Jesus Christ will soon return to planet Earth.

In the 1990s, Bible scholar Tim LaHaye and storyteller Jerry Jenkins teamed up to create a fascinating series of novels designed to make the book of Revelation more real to Christians today. Their first book, published in 1995, was simply called Left Behind. This single book sold so many copies that Barnes & Noble Bookstores voted it “One of the top ten best-selling books of the 20th century.” 

USA Today has labeled it “Wildly popular-and highly controversial.”
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1580191398&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrBecause of this incredible response, LaHaye and Jenkins decided to expand their project into a sequence of 12 books. The Indwelling-The Beast Takes Possession, was listed as a New York Times Bestseller. 

The Mark-The Beast Rules the World, became an immediate runaway hit. Amazingly, the entire project is now being called “The best-selling series of all time.” On February 2, 2001, Left Behind: The Movie, produced by Cloud Ten Pictures, is scheduled to open in theaters across America.
A Gripping Saga
The story begins with the sudden vanishing of Christians into thin air, which is commonly called the rapture. The rest of mankind, having been left behind, suddenly wake up to the nightmare of a world gone mad. Mass confusion hits as unmanned cars veer out of control, pilotless planes crash, fires erupt, and total hysteria sweeps over the globe.

“The disappearances” will usher the world into “a seven-year period called the Tribulation” (Tribulation Force, inside cover). In the midst of this universal panic, a mysterious and yet secretly evil Romanian man named Nicolae Carpathia (the Antichrist) rises to bring order out of chaos. “One of the most powerful and charismatic personalities ever” (Ibid., ix), Carpathia takes control of the United Nations.

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0768422795&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrDiscerning his inner wickedness is a brave host of new believers (a.k.a. the Tribulation Force) who are determined to resist his hypnotic power. Finally, this sinister world leader unveils his ultimate test of loyalty: the insertion of a high-tech biochip into the foreheads and hands of all people.
The Left Behind series follows the lives of certain fictitious characters who, having missed the rapture, are forced to struggle against the Antichrist, his global community, and ultimately against the enforcement of the mark of the beast.

Just as millions of Americans daily follow the lives of their favorite soap opera actors, even so millions of Christians are now following the lives of these imaginary Left Behind personalities as the saga continues to unfold. Even young people are being affected through a special version of Left Behind books just for kids, which includes a Tribulation Force Underground Kit.

Underneath the excitement and drama of this incredibly popular story, is it possible that something is just not quite right? Could it be that in the midst of Left Behind’s focus on missing people, important Bible truths are also missing? If so, which ones? Paul wrote, “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good” (1 Thessalonians 5:21).

Accepted vs. Accurate
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0816321450&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThe Bible certainly does teach the exciting truth that Jesus Christ will return for His people. Jesus Himself said, “I will come again, and receive you unto myself” (John 14:3). The clearest text in the Bible about the rapture is 1 Thessalonians 4:17.

Countless Christians know it by heart, and it is cited in Left Behind: The Movie. Paul wrote that believers in Jesus Christ will someday be “caught up … in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air” (1 Thessalonians 4:17). What we must do is to carefully examine the timing of the rapture, for this is a crucial issue.

According to Left Behind, the return of Jesus Christ actually takes place in two distinct phases. First, Jesus returns silently and secretly to catch away true believers. This begins the “seven-year period called the Tribulation.” During the Tribulation, this diabolical man known as the Antichrist rises to enforce the mark of the beast. At the end of the Tribulation, our Lord returns visibly, which is called Christ’s “glorious appearing.”

Therefore, according to Left Behind, the rapture comes first, and then, seven years later, is the second coming of Jesus Christ at the end of the world. With minor variations, this scenario is now accepted by millions of Bible-believing Christians around the globe as an accurate picture of end-time events.

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0768424917&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThere are three mighty pillars that stand out in this teaching, and it is safe to say that the entire Left Behind project rests firmly atop each one of them.

  • Pillar 1 – The rapture does not take place at the visible second coming of Jesus Christ, but seven years before it.
  • Pillar 2 – Those who miss the rapture will have a second chance to accept Jesus and be saved.
  • Pillar 3 – True believers today will not have to face the Antichrist or the mark of the beast.

We wish to follow Paul’s counsel to “Prove all things” by carefully examining these pillars, in the light of Scripture, while watching out for any signs of structural cracks.

Perfect Timing
Pillar 1 says that the rapture and the second coming do not occur simultaneously. Paul clearly states in 1 Thessalonians 4:17 that “We which are alive and remain shall be caught up.” Although the exact word “rapture” doesn’t appear anywhere in the Bible, the idea comes from those two words “caught up.” A simple comparison of verse 17 with verse 15, which says, “We which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord,” makes it very clear that believers will be “caught up” at “the coming of the Lord.”

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0768432375&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrAt this point, we must carefully examine what the Bible says about His coming. Will believers be caught up at a silent and invisible coming of the Lord before the Tribulation, as taught in Left Behind? Or will believers be caught up at the deafening “glorious appearing” of Jesus Christ at the end of the world?

Israel in Prophecy with Steve Wohlberg 5 VHS Set

Right in between verses 15 and 17, Paul wrote, “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump [or trumpet] of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first” (1 Thessalonians 4:16). Left Behind describes this as a silent and secret event, yet doesn’t it sound rather loud and noisy? There is a shout, a voice, and a trumpet.

End Time Delusions

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=076842545X&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrA long time ago, Jeremiah recorded a prophecy regarding the coming of the Lord that clearly parallels 1 Thessalonians 4:16. He wrote: “The Lord shall roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy habitation; he shall mightily roar upon his habitation; he shall give a shout, as they that tread the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth.

A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the Lord hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the Lord. Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth.

And the slain of the Lord shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground” (Jeremiah 25:30-33).

Both Jeremiah and Paul describe a coming of the Lord during which there is a loud “voice” and “a shout.” Jeremiah provides additional information by saying that the Lord will “mightily roar,” and then he says that a “noise” shall be heard worldwide. None of this sounds like a silent and secret return of Jesus prior to the Tribulation.

A Thief in the Night
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=076843209X&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrPaul said this tremendous “day of the Lord” will finally arrive like “a thief in the night” (1 Thessalonians 5:2).

Many interpret this to mean that Jesus will come like a silent thief to steal believers out of this world. Then cars will crash, planes will collide, sacked quarterbacks at football games will vanish, and babies will be missing from their cribs.

The popular Christian film A Thief in the Night, which is similar to Left Behind: The Movie, also presents this perspective. Yet is this really what Paul is saying?

Again, let’s take a closer look at Scripture. Paul wrote: “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:2-3).
Do you see what Paul is saying? Jesus’ coming as a “thief in the night” does not mean He will come quietly and invisibly to steal believers out of this world, as is taught in Left Behind. Rather, it means He will come unexpectedly, bringing “sudden destruction” upon the unsaved.

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0816319081&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrIt is not secret, only sudden. Notice again what Paul said: “But ye, brethren, are not in darkness that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness” (verses 4-5).

Did you catch that? Jesus does not come as a thief in the night to believers, but only to those who are of the night. Will those who are “of the night”-that is, the unprepared-be given a second chance to be saved? Paul wrote, “They shall not escape” (verse 3).

The apostle Peter also wrote about this same return of Jesus Christ as a thief in the night: “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up” (2 Peter 3:10).

According to Peter, this coming of Jesus Christ as a thief in the night is definitely not a silent and secret event that precedes a seven-year period of Tribulation. Rather, this day arrives suddenly, with “a great noise” (as also described by Jeremiah), and is clearly associated with the end of the world! A crack is forming in Pillar 1.

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1883012902&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrWhat about the rapture taking place “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye”? This is probably the second greatest text in the Bible now being used to support the idea of Christians vanishing prior to the Tribulation. Paul wrote, “Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed” (1 Corinthians 15:51-52).

Is Paul saying that believers will mysteriously vanish from the earth prior to the Tribulation, while their loved ones blink? Not at all! He is saying that the dead will be raised and their bodies will be changed “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye.” But when will this “moment” take place? Paul’s answer is clear. It will occur “at the last trump,” when “the trumpet shall sound,” at the end of the world. This is that very same “great sound of a trumpet” Jesus said would be heard at His second coming (Matthew 24:31)!

Pillar 1 is disintegrating.

Waiting Until It’s Too Late

As previously noted, Pillar 2 supporting the Left Behind project is the theory that those who miss the rapture will have during the Tribulation a second chance to be saved. This idea is dangerous because it leads some people to rationalize that “If the Bible is really true and if the rapture does take place, then I’ll know for sure God is real. It may be tough, but I can still join the Tribulation Force during the seven years. Even if that Antichrist guy tries to kill me, I will resist the mark!”

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0972223363&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrWhile fostering this foolish attitude is certainly not the intent of the Left Behind authors, nevertheless, the secret rapture theory can easily lead people to adopt a “wait and see” philosophy, and thus put off making a decision to follow Jesus. Paul wrote that all who are not fully on the Lord’s side when believers are “caught up” (1 Thessalonians 4:17) “shall not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:3). As you can see, Pillar 2 has very serious problems.
Left Behind also teaches that the Church will not be here on earth for Armageddon. Is this true?

The word “Armageddon” appears only once in the Bible. It is found in Revelation 16, the great chapter describing the falling of the seven last plagues. Between the sixth and seventh last plagues, Jesus Christ thunders: “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon” (Revelation 16:15-16).

Did you catch that? Jesus is talking to the Church! While the seven plagues are falling, and right before the battle of Armageddon, Jesus Christ has not yet come as a thief! Therefore He must come like a thief at Armageddon, and that must be the time when He comes to gather His Church.

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1934261114&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrPaul used the language of the military when, like a commanding officer, he urged the soldiers of the cross to “Take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand” (Ephesians 6:13).

How can we stand in “the evil day” if we have previously disappeared? Jesus Christ also said to the believers, “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. … But he who endures to the end shall be saved” (Matthew 24:9, 13, NKJV). Paul also advised the church that “we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God” (Acts 14:22).

Jesus will save His church-not from tribulation, but rather through it!

Our Lord loves us and will strengthen us in the final times. That’s why He promised: “I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world” (Matthew 28:20). We can trust Him in this.
What About the Seven Years?

The Bible text that serves as the foundation for the entire seven-year Tribulation theory is Daniel 9:27, which is the very first verse quoted in Left Behind: The Movie. It says: “He shall confirm the covenant with many for one week; and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice … to cease.”

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1579214851&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrA day in prophecy represents a year (Numbers 14:34; Ezekiel 4:6), thus the period of “one week” actually represents seven years. Millions are now applying this to a future seven-year period of Tribulation. “He” is interpreted to be the Antichrist, who will make a covenant with the Jews during the Tribulation.

What many don’t realize is that there is a more logical interpretation that has far more biblical support. It has been taught by many credible Bible scholars who have written respected commentaries that are now in the libraries of pastors across America.

One example is the world-famous Matthew Henry’s Bible commentary. It doesn’t apply Daniel 9:27 to the Antichrist at all, nor does it apply the “one week” to a seven-year period of Tribulation after the rapture. Rather, it applies the prophecy to Jesus Christ, who, after three and a half years of loving ministry, died “in the midst of the week,” which ultimately caused all animal sacrifices to cease!

Here’s the quotation from Matthew Henry’s famous commentary: “By offering himself a sacrifice once and for all he [Jesus] shall put an end to all Levitical sacrifices.”1 Another excellent Bible commentary written by Adam Clarke says that during the “term of seven years” (Daniel 9:27), Jesus Christ would “confirm or ratify the new covenant with mankind.”2 Here’s one more from the much-respected Jamieson, Fausset and Brown commentary:

“He shall confirm the covenant-Christ. The confirmation of the covenant is assigned to Him.”3
Take a careful look at Daniel 9:27 itself. God’s Word says, “He shall confirm the covenant with many for one week.” Notice that Jesus Christ Himself said, “This is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many” (Matthew 26:28, NKJV). A perfect fit!

Both use the words “covenant” and “many.”

In the midst of the week, after three and a half years, Jesus gave His life for us, “causing the sacrifice to cease.” He was the final Sacrifice. No more sacrifices are to be offered (Hebrews 10:12). Period.

In my earlier book, Exploding the Israel Deception, Chapter 5 is called “The 70th Week of Daniel Delusion.” There I give many more solid reasons why Daniel 9:27 doesn’t apply to the Antichrist at all, but to Jesus Christ alone.

The entire Left Behind idea of a seven-year period of Tribulation after the rapture may go down in history as the greatest evangelical misinterpretation of all time. The whole concept is like a gigantic bubble. Once Daniel 9:27 is correctly understood and the pointed pin of truth is inserted, “Pop goes the seven years!”

A Life-or-Death Matter
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0816312737&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrI want to conclude by talking about Pillar 3, which states that true believers today will not have to face the Antichrist and the mark of the beast. It is right here that emotions fly and reason vanishes just as instantaneously as those disappearing Christians in Left Behind:The Movie.

That’s because the mysterious mark of the beast is a life-or-death matter.

It concerns the destiny of the human soul. Admitting that the Church will still be on earth during the final great Tribulation means that Christians must someday face the Antichrist and the mark of the beast-issues over which they could lose their souls. Many people are deeply afraid of this, so they conclude there must be a secret rapture before the Tribulation. There just has to be!

A deep-seated fear of the mark plagues many people, though it need not be so. True Christians can learn a lesson from popular bumper stickers that say “Fear No Evil.” We don’t need to be afraid. We can trust in Jesus Christ, for He has promised, “Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world” (Matthew 28:20).

If the fictitious Tribulation Force in the Left Behind novels can overcome the Antichrist and the mark of the beast with God’s help, then so can we!

Like a triple-bolted door in downtown New York, they are closed to the facts.

The result?

Truth is left behind.
