Series #1 Fables & Myths: PreTrib Rapture, New Temple, New Babylon & A Man as THE Anti-Christ
Priest Rebera, Resume Animal Sacrifices?
Darby, MacDonald & Scolfield
The following is pasted with permission: A widely held end-time view is that a seven-year time of trouble called THE GREAT TRIBULATION will take place at the end of this age after God removes His born again believers by a snatching away [aka the Rapture]. Few know the origin of the doctrine, nonetheless it is generally accepted as an established fact. However, having an interpretation of a few puzzling Bible verses doesn’t mean the explanation is true. It may be an incorrect conclusion as there is no direct scriptural support for it.
Yes, there are verses we interpret as a seven year-tribulation, but not one verse in the Bible says we are going to have such a time. The dogma has a most dubious beginning.
On October 31, 1517, in response to the Roman Catholic Pope's proclamation that new fees must be paid by the laity to help build St. Peter's Basilica; an angry Priest - Martin Luther - nailed a sheet of paper with 95 complaints on the chapel door objecting to many manmade dictates. Until then, the generally accepted view of Bible prophecy was “linear historic,” that Revelation was in the process of being fulfilled throughout the Christian Era. However, in the 16th century, a new view of Bible prophecy was devised beginning with a Jesuit priest.

In the 16th and 17th centuries, Reformation leaders were calling the Roman Catholic hierarchy the “Whore of Babylon” the New Testament book of Revelation Chapter 17. In its attempt to put a halt to the true Gospel of Christ, the Roman Catholic Church began a counter‐reformation, during which two Jesuit priests were commissioned to initiate doctrines that would derail the reformation and they almost succeeded. Revelation 17:4-5
"The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth."
FIRST, IN 1591 AD: THE FUTURIST VIEW developed and popularized by Jesuit priest Fr. Ribera who claimed that Revelation would not be fulfilled until the end of the Christian Era. He taught there would be a:
Sound familiar? It should, Ribera is the father of dispensational eschatology.
A new temple in Jerusalem? That's man's plan, but it's not going to happen.

The Lord Jesus said to:
"PRAY & WATCH"
Mark 13:33, 37
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12
✝️ 7-11-20, The weight of the 'world's sin' ... the infinite blessings and resources of our salvation in Christ are described as providing the power of surpassing greatness, the grace of surpassing richness, the peace which surpasses all understanding. Thank YOU, Lord. John 1:29; Revelation 5:12; Philippians 4:7
✝️ 7-9-20, When the Lord Jesus was on the cross and the people scorned and scoffed; His great love for all ignorant uninformed sinners showed forth. He died for all sinners. Romans 5:8; Luke 23:34 However, after we are aware we're no longer ignorant of Who He was and 'what we do;' THEN we are all responsible if we reject Christ. John 3:17-18
6-29-20, Jesus said, 'Obey Me!' John 14:15; 1 John 2:3, 3:22 Of course we are forgiven when we sincerely pray for forgiveness turning our lives to the Lord Jesus. We must intend to sin no more ... if we do ... quickly repent as we didn't INTEND to. John 8:11 More here: https://www.gotquestions.org/go-and-sin-no-more.html
✝️ 6-27-29, The lawlessness we are now seeing on America's streets ... who are these young people? The kids raised under liberal theories forcing parents to withhold discipline from their children & taught liberal leftist dogma in the government schools & universities - now they are unruly selfish hateful barbarians. God said to train up children & they wouldn't depart from it [Proverbs 22:6] □□ ... true for evil □ as well as good □ behaviors. More here: https://bit.ly/3i55gQf
✝️ 6-12-20, The Lord □Jesus' mom, Mary's cousin Elizabeth's son John the Baptist was brutally killed because of a wicked hateful woman. Her foolish husband, King Herod - although he liked John; had him executed because of a promise - he musta been drunk - to make such a promise to his wife's daughter, Salome who's mom, Herodias wanted John dead. Matthew 14:3-11; Mark 6:14-29; Luke 9:7-9
✝️ 6-11-20, Regarding forgiveness: the Lord □ Jesus clearly taught that marriage was between a husband & wife. [Matthew 19:5; Mark 7:21] He loves all sinners both the heterosexual & homosexual. He promises forgiveness to everyone who repents coming to Him for salvation. He told the woman caught in adultery: "Go and sin no more.” Matthew 11:28
✝️ 6-9-20, The Lord □ Jesus explained to Nicodemus that he must be 'born again' [John 3.3, 7]. In Utah I've heard some LDS people scoff and ridicule believers in Christ who are 'born again.' Those who scorn are lost; Jesus clearly said to 'marvel not that you must be born again'; without Christ we are lost. John 3:17-18
✝️ 6-8-20, Jesus is God; He came to save sinners. “For He [Jesus] Whom God sent speaks the words of God: The Father loves the Son & has given all things into His hand. He that believs on the Son hath everlasting life & they that believes not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on them.” John 3:34-36
✝️ 6-7-20, The Lord □ Jesus spoke from the cross first of forgiveness, salvation then of His Mother's care into John's hands. He spoke of being forsaken & then triumph as His task as human was complete shedding His perfect blood for the forgiveness of sins to all who repent believing in Him. His body was thirsty. And last of His reunion with the Father. Matthew 27:46; Luke 23:34, 43, 46; John 19:26-28, 30; Mark 15:34
✝️ 6-3-20, Interesting the different duties of God's arch angels. Michael is a warrior who will defeat Satan and Gabriel was/is God's messenger appearing to: Prophet Daniel 8:15-17, 9:21-24 ... Zacharias, father of John the Baptist, Luke 1:11-18... Mary, Mother of Jesus, Luke 1:26-31... Joseph, Husband of Mary, Matthew 1:20-24, 2-13
✝️ 6-2-20, In appx 530 BC the Lord God of Israel chose the Persian [aka Iran] King Cyrus to protect and help the Jewish exiles in Babylon. Who would come back and rebuild Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem where now - since 688 AD - a Muslim mosque sits. Mark 13:14; Isaiah 45:4-6, 9, 12-13. World Without End. Ephesians 3:20-21
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12; Jeremiah 1:5; Galatians 6:7; 1 Thessalonians 5:4
✝️ 5-8-20, □ Jesus is the Light of the world. His born again disciples carry His Light. We are hated as He was hated because evil mankind loves wickedness and darkness. Example: Christian churches closed for Easter during covid scare; but Muslim mosques aren’t – New York giving them 500K free meals for Ramadan. Matthew 10:22; Mark 13:13; John 3:19, 9:5; Galatians 2:20
✝️ 5-27-20, See Romans 13:11; James 5:8; 1 Peter 4:7; 1 Thessalonians 2:19; Titus 2:13; 1 Cor 15:51-52, Rev 11:15 Scripture tells us that "The coming of the Lord is at hand;" but thousands of years have passed without the Lord’s coming. We must remember that one thousand years are like one day to God (Psalm 90:4; 2 Peter 3:8). The rapture will happen without warning at any time and believers in the Lord Jesus must be ready at all time. Certain current events cause us to believe we are near the Lord’s trumpet call and that the rapture of the church is ‘at hand.
✝️ 5-22-20, Interesting that the Lord □ Jesus said at the 'LAST SUPPER' He'd drink wine with the Apostles again in His Father's kingdom. Another confirmation & validation of scripture & teaching that we will be with Him in glory. Hallelujah! Matthew 26:26-30; Mark 14:22-26; Luke 22:14-23; 1 Corinthians 11:23-34
✝️ 5-7-20, Sins □ Jesus Harshly Condemns; He said, “God knows our hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. V9 For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” [Pride] Luke 16:15, 18:9-14; Hebrews 1:8-9
✝️ 4-30-20, When the Lord □ Jesus Mother told her son that at the Cana wedding celebration there was no wine - I wonder if the Lord did little miracles around the house so Mary knew of His abilities expecting Him to quickly whip up some good wine. And He did! The Lord's first miracle on earth water into wine. John 2:1-11
✝️ 4-29-20, We learn the importance of loving God from Psalm 91 where Moses is blessed by God Who said: 'v9 Because thou hast made the Lord... the most High, thy habitation; v14 Because he hath set his love upon Me, therefore, l will deliver him & set him on high, because he hath known My name. He shall call upon Me & I will deliver him ... & shew him My salvation." Psalm 90:1, 91-14
✝️ 4-28-20, The Lord □ Jesus, in the book of Matthew, lists what’s called the “Beatitudes.” He lists the items in our lives in His 'Sermon on the Mount' that examine our values, vision & habits to wholehearted obedience to God. We seek His forgiveness & acceptance for eternal life with Him; this is the good news 'Gospel.' John 14:6; Matthew 5:1-48, 6:1-34, 7:1-28.
✝️ 4-14-20, Based on the behaviors of some church goers; apparently they think God is like an old lenient Grandpa winking at deliberate unrepentant sin. Even sins that are done repeatedly with no remorse. Because the Lord God loves us so much, He generously warns us ... He has a book where names of forgiven sinners are recorded. Almighty God demands us to honor and obey Him. Revelation 1:18, 3:5, 20:1; Malachi 3:16 □□
