The Poisonous Mushroom Grows
1745 AD, MANUEL DE LACUNZA Y DIAZ - In 1731 born in Chile and in 1765 sailed to Spain to become Jesuit priest.
When Jesuits, including Lacunza, were expelled from Spain because of their cruelty; although not implicated, de Lacunza immigrates to Imola, Italy where he then claims to be a converted Jew named Rabbi Juan Josafat Ben Ezra.
Based on the earlier views of Ribera, in 1785 de Lacunza writes “The Coming of Messiah in Glory and Majesty.” From Daniel 12:11 and 12:12, de Lacunza then theorizes a 45‐day mini‐tribulation to take place at the end of the Christian Era. Manuel de Lacunza y Diaz’s book is published in Spain in 1821.
Enter the Irvingites - 1827 AD, EDWARD IRVING – Founder of the Irvingite Cult Translates Lacunza’s book into English. “The Morning Watch”
1830 AD MARGARET MACDONALD - A sickly, 15 year old Scottish girl, Christian for only a year, claims to have a “secret rapture” vision. Reportedly she had been in the occult, including a documented levitation!
1831 AD ROBERT NORTON - Robert Norton, an Irvingite evangelist, meets Margaret Macdonald. Norton is captivated by her “secret rapture” vision so he spreads it all over England. And that’s how all the doctrinal pieces came together, but how is the enemy going to spread this doctrine throughout the Western Church?
1870 AD JOHN N. DARBY - Darby, the founder of Plymouth Brethren, goes to Irvingite meetings where he hears Lacunza’s views. Darby then falls off his horse and lands on his head. While recovering, Darby decides that Lacunza’s, mini ) 45‐day ) tribulation is wrong so he modifies it by adding Daniel’s 70th Week! The following Darby concepts were unsupportable creative theology!
