Jack Van Impe on Preterism

On "Jack Van Impe Presents"
9/21/02 : 4 min.- 12 min. mark

"I believe that they are the ignorant brethren of First Thessalonians 4:13"

Jack Van Impe | Jack's 2000 Refutation of Preterism | 6/19/02 | 9/21/02

Rexella:  Well, I'm sure you've that you've heard of the wildly popular book series entitled "Left Behind" written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins.  Here they are, "Apocalyptic, and on the top of the bestseller list."

Well, this is a special report that you see here from the American Free Press.  "Is a Religious Faction Dictating American Foreign Policy?"  They are attacking, actually, Tim LaHaye and those who are his proponents -- end times, bible prophecy, and what is going on in the world in connection with what we see today.  In fact, I am going to read to you in a minute what they had to say about Jack Van Impe.. but, it's a movement against bible prophecy!  Jack? This movement, who are these people?

Jack: They are called Preterists (Jack's prn: pree-ter-ists).  And they say that every sign was fulfilled by 70A.D., so that from 71 A.D. onward, no prophecy could be fulfilled. It was finished once for all and forever.  And some of them have become angry with me because I said "that is more baloney than Oscar Meyer ever packaged.  And I'm gonna keep saing it.  And I am thrilled that the Pre-Trib research center, Dr. Falwell's school, is now through Tim LaHaye and others putting out a six hundred page book exposing this movement.  And they have sent me an unedited manuscript and it is powerful.  And I want everyone to know that I am going to expose this in the month of January, because I believe it is one of the most deadly, heretical things that has ever hit the church - along with Amillennialism, that there will be no one thousand year reign of Christ, according to Revelation twenty, verse four.

Rexella: Well, in this article from this paper that I quoted a moment ago, it says this, "Is it possible that Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Hal Lindsey, Tim LaHaye, Jack VanImpe, and all of the famed prophecy experts are wrong?  And that we are really (not) living in the "Last Days?" Is it possible that modern day end time believers are dead wrong, and that the biblical last time - days already occurred?

Now, I understand that this movement believes that all the signs that we talk about, and all the things that we connect with what's happening in the world today, happened thousands of years ago, Jack.

Jack: (ear to ear grin while nodding no) I could go through the whole Bible and show them how wrong they are, and I believe that they are the ignorant brethren of First Thessalonians 4:13 (laughing).  

I'm going to do something, Rexella.  They try to make it look like even the book of Revelation was written in 60 A.D., so that none of those prophecies could ever happen again.  But I'm going to show you something here. Folks, listen carefully.

Chapter one, verse seven - "He cometh with clouds, and every eye shall see him."  The extremists in this movement say He came.  Where is He?  Where is He?

Chapter four, verse one - We hear the words, "come up hither."  The four and twenty elders are laying their crowns at Jesus' feet, verses ten and eleven.  You cannot be crowned until the resurrection of the just.  (Luke 14:14)

Where did that resurrection occur?

When were all those graves opened?

How come we're still here?

In chapter five, verse nine, they're singing.  These are the ones who are raptured up, through the "come up hither," Revelation 4:1.  And guess what they're singing: "We shall reign on the earth."  When did they do that? 

In chapter six, verse eight - The fourth horseman of the Apocalypse seized one-fourth of the earth destroyed through the Beast of the Earth - West Nile Fever, and all the rest.  When did that ever occur?  Come on, now.

In chapter eight, verse seven - A third part of the trees is burned.

Chapter nine, verse eighteen - By these three was a third of men killed by the fire, smoke and brimstone.   When did that ever happen?

In chapter eleven, verse fifteen - Christ returns.  He puts a stop to those who are destroying the earth.  And at that time they beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning-hooks and they learned war no more,  Isaiah 2:4, Micah 4:3.  

Hey!  That's all we've known since 70A.D. is wars and rumors of wars.  In fact, according to the Associated Press, just in 1999, 2000, 2001, we've averaged sixty-five conflicts a year - that's one-third of the nations on earth. 

We can keep on going. 

Chapter thirteen, verse one - The Antichrist arises..  out of the European Union. 

Now, listen to me.

This is seventy years after 70 A.D., and the great church father Irenaeus (Jack's prn: Uh-rain-e-us) said, "The Antichrist shall sit in the temple and dupe his followers."  Shall!  That's 140.  That's seventy years after 70 A.D.

We can go on and on.

Revelation sixteen, verse sixteen - The battle of Armageddon is fought. 
Verse eighteen
- The greatest earthquake in history occurs. 
Verse twenty-one - There are hailstones falling from heaven, weighing eighty to a hundred and twenty pounds.  When did that all happen? 

Rexella: (unintelligible)

Jack: In chapter nineteen, Christ returns on a white horse.  The armies in heaven follow him.  He comes as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, verse sixteen.  And there is the Revived Roman Empire's army waiting to beat Him in verse nineteen.  The European Union. When did that happen? 

In chapter twenty, verses eleven to fifteen the great judgment day occurs - on and on!  Hey.  That's more baloney they've preached than.. Oscar Meyer ever thought about packaging.

Rexella: Alright, Jack. That's very convincing.   Here are some things that could not have been fulfilled..

[story about clothes implanted with 'smart fibers,' technology, and knowledge doubling every 22 months]

Jack: The fifth generation computer.. will be able to do  everything.. because it will be alive.  Oh.  That didn't happen in 70A.D.

Rexella: No. 70A.D. was when the Preterists say that all the signs were fulfilled?  Right? My, my.

[moving on] Well, Elvis Presley..

Jack snipes at Preterists throughout broadcast

Jack: [16:08] And I don't want to become obnixious, but none of this happened before 70A.D.  I'm sorry, you Preterists are really off base.

A man so blinded by his emotional connection to his eschatology that NO OTHER view could possibly be right, or he wrong, is just what the Church is filled with today? A classic example is Jack Van Impe.

I understand Jack did some math and determined that a Biblical Generation is 53 years, and that the last possible date for Christs return is 2017, up until which time books and tapes will be sold.

A serious attempt to disprove preterism might have addressed the question of whether the prophecies in the book of Revelation are to be understood literally to begin with. Dr. Van Impe knows his audience though, as evidenced by Rexella's last statement.

Ignorance is nothing to scorn. As I recall, for over 20 years I held the EXACT SAME BELIEFS as the prophecy-mongers like Jack and Rexella. I am the most stubborn man who has ever walked the earth -- I pay no attention to anyone other than my own thoughts -- and if I can be shown that preterism is the beginning of true understanding, then anyone can. To me, this factionalization among Christians has always been the most disturbing aspect of that faith. There is need for calm, contemplative analysis and rebuttal. Jeering at the dispensationalists is wrong, just as Jack is wrong to jeer at the preterists. Who is it that changes hearts? Is it you?

Rev. 5:6 says there is a slain lamb with seven eyes and seven horns in heaven. Come on now when did that ever happen? That will never happen literally. Revelation is unveiling the spiritual realm by way of symbols (Rev. 1:1). Look at how Jesus is revealed in Revelation; not once is it a literal depiction of Him. It is funny, the more these people (who are our brothers and sisters by the way) try to stamp out preterism the more they fan the flame! Duncan

I would like to know where the Bible says anything about a "European Nation" or a "Fifth Generation Computer". Where did this guy learn to read? I did a word search and never found any of these words. I guess if you can't find what you want you just make up your own Bible. Is this guy for real?

The fact that VanImpe dismisses a preterist view as a farce is clearly demonstrated by his comments, even in how he pronounces it. It is clear that he has not examined the historical facts and is unwilling to look at any other Biblical interpretations other than his own. That is sad because numerous Bible students flock to him and others, as the expert. He is probably very much afraid of our movement, because it threatens his power and credibility. I would have more respect for the man if he would attempt a serious refutation, but he can't even do that. I would hate to be him and have to answer to the Lord for leading millions of people doctrinally astray. Brethren, we still have a lot of work to do amongst the community of believers! Let the book (he mentions) come out and we will joyfully refute it.

I have watched Dr. Van Impe's broadcasts occasionally out of curiosity and for entertainment value. There is another question here besides whether Dr. Van Impe could successfully defend his teaching against preterism in a serious discussion. I mean, this is a man who says one week that the image of the beast will be a clone of the Antichrist. Another week he said it would be a robot, with a human (presumably the Antichrist's) brain - a cyborg. This is a man who has said on his program that if we ever send astronauts to other solar systems, they will find them populated with demons because the demons fell from the third heaven and now inhabit the second. Some non-Christians suggest that TV preachers themselves do not even believe what they preach. They merely preach it because it gets people to send money. I never used to believe that, but Dr. Van Impe's ideas really make me wonder...

The fact of the matter is that if the Lord hasnt openned your eyes to the truth in the scriptures you will continue in your blind thinking. If Christ was the final prophet and he was then his prophecies had to be proven and they WERE. Let those that scorn us continue, I know what is in my Bible and I know that we I pass from this life to the next it will be with Christ and not some limbo state waiting around for a "RAPTURE" If the preterist movement is so far off base then why do people get in such an uproar. It is very possible that the "expert" prophecy thinkers are in fact WRONG. They have devised a plan that fits their way of thought but they have removed piece of the eschatological puzzle and tried to place it where it cannot fit. Finally why did Christ go to so much trouble to tell those believers and Jews of that day over and over again that, "this generation shall not pass" if He did not me their genetation? Let them wait around for the rapture and well see them waiting around another billion years from now. Christ did come and He is on the throne, thank GOD. William Williams ps sorry for the spelling

Duped Christian Zionists don't understand that God's special relationship with the temporary and merely typifying natural Israel ended forever at the time of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, the true, spiritual and eternal Israel. FUTURISTIC Zionists believe that special relationship will be resumed in an imminent Jewish millennium. PRETERISTIC Zionists believe that special relationship continued during a 40-year Jewish millennium, AD 30-70. Both beliefs are false and demeaning. When an OT type was fulfilled, the type passed away forever in the sight of God.

I’m going to pray that all of your eyes be opened. You just need to scratch the surface of the European Union to know that they’re foundation is the treaty of Roam. Does this mean nothing to you? Do you know that they are thinking of changing their name to United States of Europe? Might just be a long shot but all three of these main words have 6 characters in them. If all prophases have taken place then tell me what the number of the name is when referring to the Beast.

If you would study the Bible for just a little while I think you will begain to see the truth in what Jack teaches. If you listen to what he is saying and look at what is going on in the world you will see it is all coming togeather jsut like he says. At one time I didn't beleave this teaching either, but the more I have studied the more I find Jack is right. I think you need to take a closer look!

Well I just want to say that Jack is right on thew money this time. None of those things could of happened back in 70AD. I say this because the British descendant peoples, also known as modern day Isreal, (the lost ten tribes of Isreal, including Britain, America, Canada and Australia and New Zealand) are yet going to enter a time of judgement. Possibly by another revived German army that will head the European superpower.

Jack, another example of your lack of wisdom and understanding. Revelation 4:1 does not say that these are the ones (rightheous saints) who are raptured up, through the "come up hither," The voice was Christ's invitation for John to see what was transpiring in heaven, it was a revelation of God. Jack, I suggest you read again Rev 1:1-3, God sent and signified his message by an angel to John "who bore witness to the word of God, and to the testomony of Jesus Christ, to all things that he saw". Jack, did you catch that? "TO ALL THINGS THAT HE SAW", so you see Jack, John was having a vision, John himself said "Immediately I was in the spirit" Rev 4:2, "Come up hither" was not some beam me up cosmic event from Star Trek. Christians are making the serious mistake of building theology around one verse or part verse, mixing truth with error. A verse taken out of context is nothing more than a pretext, the bible explains itself when studied in context with the immediate chapter and the whole book. Search the scriptures for the truth, "For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little" Asaiah 28:10 What is truth? Precious light is to shine forth from the word of God, and let no one presume to dictate what shall or what shall not be brought before the people in the messages of enlightenment that He shall send, and so quench the Spirit of God. Whatever may be his position of authority, no one has a right to shut away the light from the people. When a message comes in the name of the Lord to His people, no one may excuse himself from an investigation of its claims. No one can afford to stand back in an attitude of indifference and self-confidence and say: I know what is truth. I am satisfied with my position. I have set my stakes, and I will not be moved away from my position, whatever may come. I will not listen to the message of this messenger for I know that it cannot be truth. It is from pursuing this very course that popular churches are left in partial darkness, and that is why the messages of heaven have not reached them. Beware of rejecting that which is truth. The great danger with people has been that of depending upon men, and making flesh their arm. Those who have not been in the habit of searching the Bible for themselves, or weighing evidence, have confidence in the leading men, and accept the decisions they make; and thus many will reject the very messages God sends to His people, if these leading brethren do not accept them. Do not read the word in the light of former opinions; but, with a mind free from prejudice, search it carefully and prayerfully. If, as you read, conviction comes, and you see that your cherished opinions are not in harmony with the word, do not try to make the word fit these opinions. Make your opinions fit the word. Do not allow what you have believed or practiced in the past to control your understanding. . . .Find out what is written, and then plant your feet on the eternal Rock. Proverbs 4:5 Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.

Preterists and dispensationalists are unable to understand what really happened in the first century. First the old, temporary, hopelessly fallen, natural Israel was SPIRITUALLY RE-CREATED in the moment of Christ's resurrection in AD 30 as the new, spiritual and eternal Israel (Christ and the church) and then the old, temporary, hopelessly fallen natural world was SPIRITUALLY RE-CREATED in the moment of the resurrection of the dead in Christ at his parousia on the last day of the true first century as the new, spiritual and eternal world of Rev. 21,22.

preterism is a lie from the pit of hell. do you who hold these views actually think your right. your beliefs contradict the bible and every prophetic teaching. the rapture,1 corrintians 15:51-57and 1 thessalonians 4:13-18. you cant avoid it. if your truly saved than your going up with us whether you like it or not.dont you think that if these events were in the past they would be documented in other books besides the bible. your morons in christ, an ignorant believer or maybe not one at all. but i still love you . dont you know in the last days ther shall be nothing but false doctrines 2timothy 4:3-4 is describing preterism and beliefs like it. you people believe that its all over with,your so wrong ,we cant know the day or the hour but we can know the season. and let me tell you were about to be harvested.you people get fueled by your pridefull hearts and wont even take the time to search both sides of the issue fairly. iam only 20 years old and can pick up the bible and see that what jack van impe and others like him are saying is the biblical truth. i pray for you all that you will see the truth because what you believe and the motives behind them may be more dangerous than you think. jack van impe is a modern day paul,dont get me wrong he is only a man , but he is a man of god writely dividing the word of truth and for that i respect him. remember anti preterism believers 2timothy 3:12-17 is a christians walk. you who have know problems or persecutions need to search your salvation.the rapture is very near we dont have much time left down here. keep wathing he at the doorand your redemption its drawing nye. love your friend in christ. kyle

I'm not sure whats Mr. Van Impes' view but I know there is only one Bible thats the AV 1611 KJV and Iknow in 1st.thessalonians 4:15,16 talks about the Gathering of Gods chosen and any that walks with and BELIEVES that Jesus Christ is Gods only begotton Son could understand the KJV. there fore they could read Matt.24:32 the parable of the fig tree would know the fig tree is the Israel nation and it needed to become a nation and it did in 1948 and it goes on to say that all things must come to past in this generation.

For one thing if everything came to pass in 70 ad no one would be here because the KJV says saton is going to be bound up and Christ is going to rain for a thousand years then saton will be loosed for a little season then Heaven and Earth will be distroyed which would have taken place around 1070 to1071ad. I my self am looking forward to meeting my lord in a cloud in the air as 1st.Thess 4:15,16 says with in the next 2 to 5 or 6 years you can stay here for the tribulation, and the battle of armagedon, as for William Williams you need despritly to get a KJV and ask Gods forgivness and ask him to help you understand what you read.

Dear Jack&Roxella, First,Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! I want to thank you first for saying nice things about the Catholic Church and Pope John Paul 11. It's so refreshing to hear your ministry praising Christian Catholics. Jack, I have a question to ask you regarding Jesus' Second Coming. Why do you teach not one but two Second Comings; namely, a secret rapture, and then Judgement Day when Jesus returns? Majority of Protestants I am told do not believe in what your teaching when it comes to the rapture. Another question is why is there a division among you concerning this teaching? The Catholic Church teaches that yes there will be Jesus' Second Coming ONE time to Judge the living and the Dead on Judgement Day and His Kingdom will have no end. He instructs us not the dwell on His return, but when He does, the whole World will know it! It won't be a secret. The dead will be raised first and the we who are alive will be caught up to meet Him in the air. Judgement of souls will be swift on that day. They will be sifted like wheat. Jack, the Catholic Church wants you to come home since you are on fire for Jesus. However, you have not in your ministry the whole truth revealed by Jesus; namely, that the sinner's prayer is unbiblical. Yes, Jesus suffered, died and was raised from the dead for the forgiveness of sins for all. But, Jack we have built in us free will. The choice to do good or evil. Accept or reject God. The Catholic Church teaches with authority that we are saved by our Lord Jesus Christ if we continue to live a holy life and fall from grace by rejecting God. Just look at Satan as an example of this. Lucifer knew Jesus but wasn't saved, because he rejected God. It's not enough to know Jesus, we must act out of love for Jesus and others. Faith and Works. Truth and Love go hand and hand. God Bless you, Anita

Jack, This is for the lady Anita who says the sinners prayer is unbiblical. Jesus says" no man commeth unto the father but by me" He also says " ye must be born again to enter the Kingdom of Heaven"This is what we witness to unsaved people which we are taught in Evangelism Explosion class.I've seen people come to Christ who say' Jesus, I'm a sinner,I know you are the son of God and you died on the cross and your shed blood will save me from eternal damnation.I ask you to come into my heart and forgive me for my sins and I may be your child.I ask this in the name of the Father,Son and Holy Ghost, Amen " This is a prayer that we call a "sinners prayer" I've seen alcoholics quit drinking and their jobs saved,families saved, and marriages saved through this simple prayer.

Preterism is a very dangerous teaching. Jesus commanded us to watch and pray. Obviously, Preterists aren't doing this. I know Preterists believe all prophecy was fulfilled in 70 A.D. If this is true, how do you explain Israel, The European Union, The Arab-Israeli conflict, the Russian-Islamic alliance, the use of nuclear weapons, the move toward dividing the land of Israel (Dan. 11:39), the trouble with Iraq, trouble with North Korea, and hundred pound hailstones? Just to name a few. it's not likely that these things are just a coincidence. God bless. Rick

To Jack and Rexella, I just wanted to say that these people you are talking about are the mockers and scoffers that the Bible mentions that would be saying ignorant things about the rapture and the millenium. They clearly are blind when it comes to bible prophecy being fulfilled. I commend you Jack and Rexella for your standing on the word of God and your faithfulness to Him. Keep up the good work and do not become weary in well doing for you shall be well rewarded for your faithfulness and service to the Lord's work. Sincerely, Tina Dunbar

They clearly are blind when it comes to bible prophecy being fulfilled. I commend you Jack and Rexella for your standing on the word of God and your faithfulness to Him. Keep up the good work and do not become weary in well doing for you shall be well rewarded for your faithfulness and service to the Lord's work. Sincerely, Tina Dunbar

I'm not sure what a Preterists is. Will some one explain it to me. Does it have anything to do with Christianity? Doesn't sound like it. Most of you sound like you're trying to impress the rest of us with your intelligence by making sure we realize we aren't smart enough to have an opinion of our own. None of your comments helped me to understand your belief system. Just that to believe whatever Jack had to say makes me an idiot.

I believe the Bible is being revealed today like it has never been revealed before. If you don't believe what the Bible says, don't be surprised if you are still here when the rapture occurs. The Bible says He is coming for those who are watching for Him. Be careful what you say that God says or didn't say.

Whew! What a mess. I too have heard Jack and what COULD be in the coming days - Robot, clone cyborg - look around you and see - these things are possible - though perhaps not very practical. The main issue he team is God is LOVE. God is unchanging. Throughout the 2 millinium? So many translations of God's Word - so much misunderstanding. First off, Pretrib Rapture? I think Jack is right... the reasons I say this are found in all the passages that say what to expect during the last days... then a follow up with "you shall not know the day or time". Intellectually now, explain to me how is it that we don't know the day or the hour, if there is no rapture, when in fact we will all see the day when the 7 yr peace is declared and we will see the day when the AC proclaims himself God in the New Temple. MT 24 and LK 17 says multiple times that two shall be and one shall be taken... taken where? If those that are taken are evil during the first harvest... and the church is left behind... what about the 144,000 missionaries to proclaim God? To whom? That means Post Trib doesn't work... God would allow each person on the earth the opportunity to hear His promise of LOVE either from the 144,000 or the Two Prophets in Rv 11. 1Thes 4.16 says also that the trumpet of God will call us into the air... almost verbatim with John's Rev 4.1. 2 Thes 2.7 is the best though! "what is going to happen will not happen until the one who holds it back is taken out of the way - that is the Holy Spirit in and of the Church. I love you guys in Christ. I say to you with all my heart - WHO CARES. Let us be busy at our work WHEN He comes... and let us not focus on anything less than the victory at hand through Jesus. A Men?

I've been watching Jack & Rexella on INSP's "Changing The World"- it seems they repeat the same couple of interviews every few weeks. Never have I seen a man so arrogant! As far as he's concerned Van Impe & Associates are the only ones who know the truth. I'm not a Preterist (that's pronounced, 'pret er ist', Jack) nor amillennialist. Isbon Beckwith wrote a commentary on Revelation in 1919 that seems to make sense to me. It's also found in Dr. Kendell Easley's Commentary (Holman series) and is described as 'promillennialism'. However, I readily admit I could be wrong. Van Impe attacks everyone who is not a Dispensational Premillennialist. Two years ago I wrote him a letter regarding several inaccurate statements he made on INSP (with a copy to David Cerullo) - never got a response (not that I really expected one!).

I just want to thank everyone for your comments. It has been interesting seeing what you all have had to say. Tina, you made your point very well, (we couldn't possibly miss it). Rick, you too. What I want to say is that I feel the freedom to say what we feel is is part of the blessing of living in America. We have that right. Jack Van Impe has that right. If you listen to him, then that's your decision. No one is forcing you. As far as preterism is concerned, I have also done quite a bit of research. I think Joe Van Koevering's book, "Exposing the Scoffers" is done very well. I would like to quote from pages 19 and 20: "Let's re-examine what Ricard Abanes has said. Abanes' reasoning is simply this: For two thousand years Alarmists have cried out, 'THE TIME IS AT HAND!' And they've all been wrong. Right? Therefoe his logic says, 'All those who today say that the return of Christ is near, they, too, must be wrong.' Why does he say we're wrong? Because everybody that preceded us for two thousand years was wrong. However, that is faulty logic. That is like somebody saying in 1945, "You know, preachers have said for nineteen hundred and forty-five years that Israel would be reborn and they've all been wrong. So all these guys today are wrong." But guess what happened in 1948? Israel was reborn, thus setting this genration apart from all generations that preceded it. In fact, the very nation of Israel itself is a real problem to the preterist scoffers. The preterists have no plausible explanation for this great miracle of hisory. The scofers want us to believe that the re-establishing of the nation of Israel in our lifetime is merely a fluke, an accident of history. Yet today, for the first time since 586BC, the Jewish people are living in their Biblical land under a sovereign government. Never before in human history have a people been defeated, driven from their land, and dispersed among the many nations of the world, only to return over two millenia later and reclaim their country, language and identity. Never! How can any honest, Bible-believing Christian seriously entertain the possiblility that this is not the hand of God at work? THe scoffers in the land today would try and have us believe that all the prophetic declarations in the Bible predicting this national rebirth of Israel in the last days, are somehow irrelevant and un-important. Well, I personally feel otherwise. Israel itself is God's "super sign" that we are living in the last days, and stands as a stroang witness against the message of the modern scoffers of today. Don't buy into any of those lies. No matter how they cloak it, no matter how they present it, no matter how they say it...don't receive what they have to say. The Christian community is being force-fed this teaching and it is false. Please read Van Koevering's book if you get a chance...Kris

I am not sure which position is correct!!! However, when I look at John 5:28 - 29 it seems to contradict Jack's position. If everyone (believers and nonbelivers) is being resurrected at the same time, then how could there be a separate rapture a thousand previously?

I just think (as a Christian) this belief about a so-called "rapture" is starting to get to everyone's heads! I, honestly, am a little skeptical about it, I want to believe, but I don't want to. We are seperating ourselves from many other Christians just because of different "opinions" (or if you'd like to call them "beliefs") concerning how our Savious will return. It's beginning to get childish and non-Christ-like. Here's my point. The Lord will return. How? I don't know. I'm only human (just as MY ways are higher than your ways, so are MY thoughts higher than your thoughts)But its about time we all stopped this nonsense. Its so (pardon me) stupid. Jesus will return. That's that.

First there was Noah, then the Law and then the Prophets. God was revealing more and more to his creation. FINALLY, He sent His SON for the ultimate sacrifice for we only have to believe on Him, repent and be saved. God is giving us every chance to live eternally. The choice is ours. He is extending His Grace period for He is not willing that ANY should perish, but that all should have eternal life. This life is about a choice...God or Satan. The result will be life eternal or life in Hell forever away from the presence of God. When the restrainer (the Christian Church) is removed, then the LAST antichrist will be revealed. He will be allowed to work freely as there will be no prayers of Christians to prevent the destruction that will come upon this earth. Woe to them who do not repent and believe on Jesus. Sad to see some complain because God is witholding his judgement that all who will might be saved. It's this mercy (even though scoffers complain) that might bring one more soul to repentance and life eternal. Might it be you?

When the Bible states in 1Th 4:16 and 4:17 "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 1Th 4:17 Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord" there is NO WAY preterists can explain this away. This has not happened but just as over 500 prophecies in the Bible HAVE ALREADY been fulfilled, you can KNOW that this will happen as well. <p> God in His wonderful mercy is not willing that ANY should perish. He hears and answers the prayers of Christians who beg for mercy for their loved ones. I long for His return, but I grieve at the thought of a daughter or son spending eternity in hell. So the scoffers complain (as the Bible said they would) because God is not willing that ANY should perish but that all should come to repentance. As I am a Christian believer and, whether asleep in our Lord or alive at his coming, I would prefer to sleep til His coming if waiting a little longer would extend His wonderful mercy to include lost children and loved ones. <p> But, when God removes the restrainer (as He said in His word and which is the Holy Spirit indwelling Christians), the final antichrist will wreak havoc on this world like it has never seen. Then, the end will come. <p>We will live forever somewhere. The choice we make while living in this world will determine where we spend it. Can anyone honestly believe their spirit will just disappear? Think about it. We will ALL be alive somewhere though our bodies may be in the grave at His coming. God has done everything (including sacrificing His Son) that we might choose to live with Him. I hope when you lie down tonight, you are aware in the quiet of the night, that your soul will NEVER fade away. For God gave it to you, but He allowed your free will which determines where you spend it. He offers life eternal beyond our imagination. But Satan knows his time is getting shorter and he wants to take as many of God's creation into hell as he can so great is his hatred of God. God has made a way that we all may escape. Jesus is the door.

Jack.. the fact that you do not read Scripture with a proper hermeneutic is sad enough without your making mockery of a view that is more truthful to scripture does not speak well of you at all. it would be best if you continued on with what you believe and not be concerned with the preterist view. If you are sure your view is correct.. then so be it.As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord

Gen to Rev are the words of man and are not the words of the creator. So is the book of Mormon,the Koran and all other books.If there is a designer of the universe, then let the designer stay anonymous. That is how it has been from the beginning. The designer has not been revealed as of yet and may never be revealed to dust like man. So don't get your hopes up to much that you are going to be in eternal bliss with Jesus for ever.

I think that in 2075 they will still be the Van Impe's of the world still predicting the world is ending. Man has been predicting the "Coming of the Lord" for centuries and there isn't any reason to believe it will ever stop. We all know fear is the driving force of all religions and human frailities will always be exploited. Some preach because they have actually come to believe their own babble, others do it for economic reasons. If one hundred of the most influential religious leaders of today would get together and call for all of the true believers to commit suicide, themselves included, the aftermath would probably be the first time in history we would experience true peace on earth.

It sounds to me like all of you have just gotten tired of waiting for the Lord's return and you are making up your own false doctrine. If you can't endure till the end, that tells me something about your "relationship" with Jesus. Revelation does give a symbolic dipiction of the events to come. I guess the reason why you can't understand the Bible is because you have never become aquainted with it's author. Call yourselves Preterist if you want, sounds to me like a bunch of sinners hiding behind a fancy name.

Jack,
Your insight is astonishing, however you are mis-guided as I once was in all but one thing. The United States of America is the "new" roman empire and it's leader is working towards bringing about the "new world order" as they call it by linking this un-natural union of Sovereign States with those of europe and by a "Fress tTrade allaince with all of the Americas and last but not least, the millitary and economic conquest of the Middle Eastern States.- There you have it. One world Government established by an apostate leader by creating a problem (terrorism) which is State sponsered, and then scaring the world to accept the loss of individual rights in the name of "Safety" - Ponder this for a while and you will see it clearly.The stage will then be set.The only ones not under this allaince will be Russia (King of the North) and China/N.Korea/Vietnam/Etc. (The Kings of the East). The Anti-Christ will be the leader of the most powerful power on earth

I wish everyone had the answers but i have noticed some of the persons are teaching the preterist doctrine don't even believe in the in filling of the Holy Ghost with eveidence of speaking in tongues! There is still much debate on Baptism in Jesus name according to acts 2:38 and that i know to be correct so for someone to argue and debate something such as the fulfillment of revelations in contrary if we haven't been born again of the water and of the spirit, in the first place!!

Preterism is a problem. However, what is this pre-tribulational rapture?

Let's look at Matthew 24:36-40.

Key: "As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man."

Operative phrase "one will be taken and the other left". Who is taken?

(v.38-39) : "Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and TOOK THEM ALL AWAY"

Those who are taken when the Lord returns are those who will be thrown into the winepress of God's wrath.

Again, in Luke 17:

(v.26): "Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man."

(v.27): "Then the flood came and DESTROYED THEM ALL."

(v.28): "It was the same in the days of Lot"

(v.29): "But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and DESTROYED THEM ALL."

(Day of the Lord) "While people are saying, "Peace and safety," DESTRUCTION will come on them suddenly," (1 Thes 5:3)

There is going to be only ONE Day of the Lord, not two.

(2 Peter 3:10): "But THE day of the Lord will come like a thief. The HEAVENS WILL DISAPPEAR with a roar; the ELEMENTS WILL BE DESTROYED by fire, and the earth and EVERYTHING in it WILL BE LAID BARE".. (v.12) "That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat"

This so-called secret rapture is nothing more than the gathering at the end of time:

(Matt 24:31) "And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other."

Gather to where?

(Zech 14:3) "On that day his feet will stand on the MOUNT OF OLIVES, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south. You will flee by my mountain valley, for it will extend to Azel. You will flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the LORD my God will come, AND ALL THE HOLY ONES WITH HIM."

If you are living in the United States, or Europe, or South America, or Australia, etc., when the Lord returns, how are you supposted to get to the Mount of Olives - where Jesus will be when he returns once and only once?

At the very instant of Jesus' return, believers will be changed (1 Cor 15), the unbelievers destroyed by fire (1 Thes 5:3), and we all get an angelic escort to meet the Lord over in Israel (Matt 24:31).

There is no "secret rapture" - that is a MYTH. Jesus comes one more time.. that is all.

Praise Him!

I truly believe JVI doesn't beleive his own ramblings. Every verse he quotes is taken out of context, and his ridiculous newspaper headlines make me laugh. He is a false prophet, and will one day be silenced by his own deceit.

The only thing Jack and Rexella are interested in,is hawking their next "offer of the month". I feel sorry for foolish Christians who are duped by this man. They are lazy, and have not studied the Bible to see if the things Jack tells them are so. Jack and Rexella live a very comfortable life from the proceeds of these offers. As long as there is money to be made, and ignorant Christians , they will continue to mangle Bible prophecy to make a profit.

well, actually i looked up several of the verses for the firt time really in an amplified bible which tells meaning of hebrew and greek translation. Everyone should own one because every verse i looked up that jack quoted is exactly word for word correct. We shouldnt be so ignorant to what is really going on in this world, just sit back and watch if you dont beleive, and see if these things come true before your own eyes.

I remember watching the program a few times and Mr. Van Impe said the earth will never pass away. The bible says there will be a new heaven and a new earth....so, which gospel is he preaching? Plus he mumbled a bunch of scriptures......but they didn't match up w/what he was saying.

2 Thessalonians 2

1Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers, 2not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come. 3Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for (that day will not come) until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness[a] is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. 4He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God.

2 Peter 3

8But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 9The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

Matthew 24

36"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 37As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.
42"Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

45"Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, 'My master is staying away a long time,' 49and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. 50The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. 51He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

as for john, i've found no evidance to prove one way or the other that he is dead, or alive. i know i have my hope, because i've been anxious to find the apostles apostles apostle... so to speak.

i would figure, that if a mans life is limited to 120, according to scripture, if he lived beyond these years, it would be appropriate to withdraw, and to bite his toungue, unless he desired a media frenzy about him.

furthermore, i would engage myself to believe that if he did still live... he would be the likes of which we should compose ourselves to honor in the following manner...

Matthew 25

40"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'

that being said, you all talk too much with your own mouths. you should use more scripture. :)

additionally, you're not going to find john sitting on your butts in front of a computer. if i had not been given a dream that i would continue in this darkness for a while, i would not be here myself bothering to respond to you. again, however, this is only for a short while. after all, the lord commanded us to not do as they did in egypt. ever thought about that??? or what the gods of stone and wood are that the israelites of the time and their forefathers had never known, might be? ever researched egyptian technology? could you swallow that? children?

I think Jack Van Impe is deceived and acting as a false prophet, as are all preachers of the end times doctrine. They all came out of the same vat and need to read CAREFULLY the warnings issued by Jesus in the last verses of the last chapter of Revelation.

They should then reconsider their platform and/or their vocation. Paul warned those who would be teachers and the told them of the standard to which they be held. And what did our Lord say about those who lead others (any little one) astray?

The time is coming when the airwaves will be purged of Jack Van Impe and his ilk UNLESS they repent of preaching their unScriptural doctrine of modern dispensationalism. It is a plague on the church, dividing our house, and robbing believers of their God-given power to do ALL things.

Was Christ's work on the cross complete or not? Does He really have to come back and do it all over again? Did He conquer sin and death like the Gospel says or not? I believe He did all of these things. Why don't the preachers of the Gospel believe this???

your crazy!
1) Why was Daniel told to seal the words of his prophecy for the time of the end (Daniel 12:4,9) , but John was told to NOT seal his prophecy, because the time was at hand (Revelation 22:10)?
2) If Revelation was not to be sealed, but Daniel was to be sealed because it was for many days (Daniel 10:14), then many days are only 500 years, and if that is true, how can "at hand" be for 2000 years?
3) Is the new heaven and earth before the 1000 years (2nd Peter 3) or after the 1000 years (Revelation 21)?
4) Why is there no noticeable difference between the "rapture" texts and the "2nd coming" texts?
5) How can Jesus' kingdom be physical when Jesus rejected a physical kingdom in John 6:15 and Pilate did not believe he was going to establish a physical kingdom which would overthrow Rome (Luke 23:14)?
6) Why did Jesus go back to heaven after his resurrection, if he really wanted to establish an earthly kingdom?
7) Why didn't Jesus stay on earth if he wanted to establish an earthly kingdom?
8) How can Jesus' kingdom be set up in earthly Jerusalem, when Jesus himself said the hour was coming when worshipping God would NOT be in Jerusalem (John 4:21)?
9) Why would Jesus' kingdom be set up in earthly Jerusalem, knowing Jesus condemned their city several times (Matthew 21-25)?
10) Why would Jesus' kingdom be set up in earthly Jerusalem, even though Paul said earthly Jerusalem was bondage and the old covenant (Galatians 4:24-25)?
11) How can Jesus' kingdom have not yet come, when John the Baptist, Jesus Christ and the apostles all declared the "kingdom of God is at hand" (Matthew 3:2, 4:17, 10:7)?
12) How can Jesus' kingdom be seen by everyone when Jesus himself said it comes NOT with observation (Luke 17:20)?
13) How can Jesus' kingdom be seen by everyone when Paul said it is NOT meat and drink, but righteousness, joy, and peace in the Holy Spirit (Romans 14:17) ?
14) How can Jesus' kingdom be worldly/earthly, when Jesus himself said "My kingdom is not of this world" in John 18:36?
15) How can the "millennial" kingdom of God be of the Jews when Jesus himself said he took the kingdom away from them and gave it to the gentiles who produce the fruits (Matthew 21:43) ?
16) If Jesus took the kingdom from the Jews and gave it to the gentiles, why is there no scripture to show another transfer back to the Jews?
17) If God was going to go back to the Jews/national Israel, why does Deuteronomy 28 vividly describe the events of 70 AD which proves that God DESTROYED national Israel forever because they rejected his ordinances and commandments?
18) Why is there not a shred of proof that modern Jews are descendants of Abraham or the tribes of Israel?
19) Why is there much more evidence that modern Jews are people descended from the gentile kingdom of Khazaria, who simply practice Judaism?
20) If there is a 2000+ year gap between the 69th and 70th week of Daniel, why doesn't Daniel or any other scripture mention it?
21) Wouldn't that mean if there was a gap between the 69th and 70th week, according to Deuteronomy 18, that Daniel's prophecy did NOT come to pass as he said and therefore he was a false prophet?
22) If there is a 2000+ year gap between the 4th kingdom and the made up "5th kingdom" in Daniel 2 and 7, why doesn't Daniel or any other scripture mention it?
23) How can there be a 2000+ year gap between the 4th and "5th" kingdom, but all the previous kingdoms were consecutive with no gaps?
24) If the 70th week is still in the future, why did Jesus say "the time is fulfilled" in Mark 1:15?
25) If the 70th week is still in the future, why were there jews in expectation of the Messiah - Luke 3:15?
26) If the 70th week is still in the future, why did Jesus tell Peter to forgive his brother 70 times 7 in Matthew 18:22?
27) If the 70th week is still in the future, why does Daniel say Messiah would come after 69 weeks (483 years) and the prophecy began when the decree to rebuild Jerusalem was given in 456 BC?
28) Wouldn't that mean the 69th week ended in 27 AD and the 70th week began in 27 AD, when Jesus was 30 years old and was baptized?
29) If the 70th week is still in the future, why does scripture say Jesus confirmed the covenant in Galatians 3:17 which refers to Daniel 9:27?
30) If the 70th week is still in the future, why did Jesus' crucifixion, which was 3.5 years after his baptism (midst of the week), cause the sacrifices and oblations to fail/cease (Hebrews 7:27, 9:26) ?
31) If the 70th week is still in the future, why exactly 3.5 years after Jesus' crucifixion (midst of the week) , did the gospel go to the gentiles (Acts 13:46) ?
32) If the 70th week is still in the future, why does the New Testament say that all the events of Daniel 9:24 were fulfilled when Jesus Christ came?
33) If "finishing the transgression" is not yet fulfilled, why does scripture record Israel finished her transgression and filled up her sins and the measure of her fathers by killing the Messiah (Matt 21:33-45; Matt 23:29-36 cp Gen 15:16; I Thes 2:14- 16; Matt 3:7-12; Acts 3:13-15; 7:51-53; Dan 8:12,23) ?
34) If an "end of sins" is not yet fulfilled, why does scripture record Jesus made an end of sins by purging them away (Matthew 1:21; John 1:29; Acts 5:31; Rom 3:25; 8:3; Titus 2:14; Heb 1: 3; 9:26; 10:12,17; I Pet 2:24; I John 2:1-2; 3:5; Rev 1:5) ?
35) If "reconciliation for iniquity" is not yet fulfilled, why does scripture record Jesus made reconciliation for iniquity (Romans 5:10; II Cor 5:18-20; Ephesians 2:14-17; Col 1:21-22; Heb 2:17) ?
36) If "to bring in everlasting righteousness" is not yet fulfilled, why does scripture record Jesus brought in everlasting righteousness (II Cor 5:21; I Cor 1:30; Rom 3:25- 26; 5:17-21; 8:1-4; 10:4; Gal 2:21; 5:5; Eph 4:24; Phil 3:9; II Tim 4:8; II Pet 1:1; 3:13; Rev 19:8; 22:11) ?
37) If "to seal up the vision and prophecy" is not yet fulfilled, why does scripture record Jesus sealed up the vision and prophecy by blinding the Jews to understanding of the Scriptures (Is 8:16; 29:11; Daniel 8:26; 12:4; Matt 13:10-16; 22:29; Luke 24:44- 47; John 12:37-41; Acts 3:17; 13:27; 28:23-29; Rom 9:32-33; 11:7-10,25; I Cor 1:22-23; 2:6-8; II Cor 3:14; I Pet 2:7-8; Revelation 10:4; 22:10) ?
38) If "to anoint the Most Holy" is not yet fulfilled, why does scripture record Jesus was anointed as the most Holy at His baptism (Psalm 2:2; 45:7; Isaiah 11:1-5; 42:1; 61:1-3;
Matt 3:13-17; 12:28; 16:16; Mark 1:24; Luke 1:35; 4:16-21,34; John 1:29-34; 3:34; 6:69; 10:36-38; 11:27; Acts 4:27; 10:38; Heb 1:9; I John 5:6) ?
39) If Jesus is going to rapture the church out of the world, why does Jesus pray for the exact opposite thing to happen (that the church would NOT be taken out of the world) in John 17:15,20?
40) If God is going to give the "land" to the Jews in the future millennium, how can he possibly keep that promise, when it is also taught He will burn up the entire earth at the 2nd coming?
41) Wouldn't that mean it wasn't the land He promised them?
42) If there is no physical death in the new heaven and earth, why does Isaiah 65:20 say the child will die at 100?
43) If the teaching that 1 day = 1000 years and 1000 years = 1 day to the Lord (2nd Peter 3:8) is how we are to read time in scripture, does that mean that the 1000 years in Revelation 20 is a single 24 hour day?
44) If the teaching that 1 day = 1000 years and 1000 years = 1 day to the Lord (2nd Peter 3:8) is how we are to read time in scripture, does that mean the church of Smyrna would have tribulation for 10,000 years (Revelation 2:10) ?
45) If the teaching that 1 day = 1000 years and 1000 years = 1 day to the Lord (2nd Peter 3:8) is how we are to read time in scripture, does that mean Jesus was in the grave for 3,000 years (Matthew 12:40) ?
46) If the teaching that 1 day = 1000 years and 1000 years = 1 day to the Lord (2nd Peter 3:8) is how we are to read time in scripture, does that mean it took the disciples 6,000 years to reach the mount of transfiguration (Matthew 17:1) ?
47) If the teaching that 1 day = 1000 years and 1000 years = 1 day to the Lord (2nd Peter 3:8) is how we are to read time in scripture, does that mean Jesus was tempted of the devil for 40,000 years (Luke 4:2) ?
48) If time means nothing to God, why does God constantly use time restricted statements such as shortly, at hand, near, quickly, end of all things, last times, last hour, last days, last day, this generation, etc?
49) If time means nothing to God, why does God consider 70 years a long time (Jeremiah 29:10,28) ?
50) If time means nothing to God, why would He give Daniel a 70 week prophecy (Daniel 9:24) ?
51) If time means nothing to God, why did God create a 7 day week (Genesis 1-2) ?
52) If time means nothing to God, why would He command the Israelites to keep appointed feast days which they knew by the month they were in (Leviticus 23:34) ?
53) If time will end after the new heaven and new earth, why does the tree of life produce fruit every month (Revelation 22:2) ?
54) If the great tribulation (Daniel 12:1, Matthew 24:21) is GLOBAL, why did Jesus only tell those living in Judea to flee to the mountains (Matthew 24:16) ?
55) If the great tribulation (Daniel 12:1, Matthew 24:21) is GLOBAL, why did Daniel only refer to it occurring to those who were the "children of thy people"?
56) If Jesus' purpose for coming in the flesh was to destroy the devil (Hebrews 2:14, 1st John 3:8) , and Paul said Satan would be crushed under the Romans' feet shortly in the 1st century (Romans 16:20) , how can Satan still be here?
57) Did Jesus forget to destroy Satan and decide to let Satan linger 2000 years longer?
58) If the 2nd coming of Jesus is Jesus coming in a physical, fleshly body, why does Paul say we would know Christ after the flesh no more (2nd Cor. 5:16) ?
59) If the 2nd coming of Jesus would be the world seeing him coming in a physical body, why does Jesus say "In a little while and the world will see me no more" in John 14:19?
60) Why did the high priest accuse Jesus of blasphemy for saying he would come in the clouds sitting on the right hand of power (Matthew 26:64-65) ?
61) If Jesus has not returned, then why do people say Christians go to heaven and the wicked go to hell at death?
62) If Christians go to heaven and the wicked go to hell at death, wouldn't that mean that salvation, redemption and judgment has already come to the world?
63) If Christians go to heaven and the wicked go to hell at death , then doesn't scripture prove Jesus has returned?
64) If most bible prophecy has not been fulfilled or is being fulfilled today, why doesn't ANY New Testament scripture say its fulfillment would be 2000 years later, but rather speak about it being fulfilled in their lifetime?
65) If the book of Revelation is for us today in the year 2005, does that mean it was NOT to the 7 churches in Asia, which Revelation says it was written to?
66) If the book of Revelation is for us today in the year 2007, does this mean John was writing to figments of his imagination, since it didn't apply to the 1st century churches?
67) Why would John write to those 7 churches in the 1st century if it had nothing to do with them?
68) If "at hand" in scripture doesn't really mean anything, why would Jesus warn his disciples to not go after false christs who say "the time is at hand" (Luke 21:8) ?
69) How could they tell when the time would be at hand versus when it was not at hand if at hand means 2000 years or longer?
71) Why isn't there a single scripture that says Christ's coming was "not at hand"?
72) If "delay" means nothing in scripture, why does Jesus say the evil servant says the lord delays his coming (Matthew 24:48) ?
73) How could Jesus possibly accuse someone of being an evil servant, if delay doesn't mean anything?
74) How could his 12 disciples know who was false, if delay isn't in "human time"?
75) Why does Hebrews 10:37 say that "For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not delay"?
76) Why does Paul say that nobody has immortality until the 2nd coming of Christ and therefore cannot go to heaven until the 2nd coming? (1st Timothy 6:14-16, 1st Corinthians 15:51-54) ?
77) If Elijah the prophet has not yet come, why did Jesus say emphatically in 2 plain scriptures (Matthew 11:7-15, 17:10-13) that John the Baptist was "Elijah who was to come"?
78) If Elijah the prophet has not yet come, does that mean Jesus isn't the Messiah?
79) If Elijah the prophet didn't come, even though Jesus said he did come, does that mean Jesus lied or misled his own disciples?
80) If antichrist is a single person who is a world leader in the end of time, why doesn't a single scripture speak about it?
81) If there is a 7 year tribulation in the future, why doesn't scripture speak about it?
82) If the beast can be mortally wounded and be raised from the dead by Satan (Revelation 13:3) , wouldn't that mean Satan can do something ONLY God can do (John 6:39-40) ?
83) If the 144,000 from Revelation 7 and 14 are still yet in the future, Jewish virgins, why do John, Paul and James speak about them as already in existence (Romans 16:5, 1st Cor 16:15, James 1:1,18) ?
84) If the 144,000 from Revelation 7 and 14 are still yet in the future, why are they described as FIRSTFRUITS?
85) If the 144,000 from Revelation 7 and 14 are the FIRSTFRUITS, wouldn't that show they are the FIRST and not the last Christians?
86) If the last days are today in 2005, why did Peter and Paul both say the last days were in their lifetime (Acts 2:16-17, Hebrews 1:1-2) ?
87) If the end of the world (age) is still in the future, why does Hebrews 9:26 declare the end of the world (age) was present day in the 1st century?
88) If the age we are living in will end in the future, then why does Ephesians 3:21, Hebrews 12:21-28 say the Christian age has no end?
89) If the bible is to be read 100% literally, why are terms like at hand, quickly, shortly, etc and the original audience (Romans, Corinthians, etc) not read literally?
90) If the marriage supper of the lamb is after the rapture, why does scripture say it happens after Mystery Babylon is destroyed (Revelation 19) ?
91) Wouldn't that mean the rapture happens after Mystery Babylon's destruction, thus meaning it is "post-trib"?
92) If the parable of the fig tree (Matthew 24:32) is the fleshly nation of Israel becoming a nation again, what about the same parable in Luke 21:29-30 which says "behold the fig trees and all the trees"?
93) Wouldn't that mean that Israel (the fig tree) becomes a nation again and ALL the other nations (all the trees) become nations again?
94) Did ALL the other nations become nations again in 1948?
95) If a person believes that Christians are the Israel of God (Galatians 6:16) , and NOT fleshly Jews (Matthew 3:9, John 8:44) , why do dispensationalists call those who believe it "anti-Semitic"?
96) What do you call a person who begs you to send money to get as many jews to the land of Israel (Wings of Eagles) , but they do so with the belief that 2/3 of those jews will be slaughtered in a future tribulation (Zechariah 13:7-9) ?
97) Wouldn't people who supports a future holocaust be considered pre-meditated murderers?.
98) Wouldn't that be more "anti-Semitic" than calling the church Israel?
99) If there is going to be a rebuilt Jewish temple in the future, why does scripture say God doesn't dwell in temples made with hands anymore (Acts 7:48, 17:24) ?
100) If there is going to be a rebuilt Jewish temple in the future, why did God destroy the 2nd temple in AD 70?
101) If there is going to be a rebuilt Jewish temple in the future, why are they trying to build it on the old Roman fortress of Antonia (the wailing wall) ?
102) If heaven and earth have not passed away yet, does that mean not one jot or tittle has passed from the law and Jesus did not fulfill it yet (Matthew 5:17-18) ?
103) If we are in the new covenant, which scripture says is forever, why would God go back to a temple system of the old covenant which Paul called bondage (Galatians 4) ?
104) If Revelation was written after 70 AD, why does John give time statements throughout the book pointing to imminent events which fit the description of Jerusalem's destruction from Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 17/21?
105) If Revelation would occur thousands of years after it was written, why does John say the 6th king is the one who "is" which would mean his present day?
106) If Revelation was written after 70 AD, why was he told to measure the temple, if the temple was already destroyed?
107) If Revelation was written after 70 AD, why was John told how long the Gentiles would tread down the city (Revelation 11) which Jesus referred to in Luke 21:24 which were the events from 67-70 AD?
108) If Revelation was written after 70 AD, why is there nothing mentioned about the destruction of Jerusalem?
109) If Revelation was written after 70 AD, how could there be other apostles alive (Revelation 2:2) , when all the apostles except John were dead before 70 AD?
110) If Revelation was written after 70 AD, how could there be jews persecuting Christians (Revelation 2:9,3:9) which would have been impossible after the destruction of Jerusalem?
111) If Revelation was written after 70 AD, why were there 2 different numbers used to calculate the same beast in Revelation 13:18 (616 and 666) which pointed to Nero?
112) What purpose would it serve for John to tell the first readers of his prophecy to "calculate" the number of the name of the beast if he was not to be born until 2000 years later?
113) If God has 2 different plans for Jews and gentiles, why does Paul say there isn't any more distinction (Romans 10:12, Galatians 3:28, Colossians 3:11) ?
114) Why did Jesus break the wall of partition between Jews and gentiles (Ephesians 2:14) if there is going to be a partition in a future millennium?
115) If there are no signs for the rapture, why did Paul say there were (1st Thessalonians 4:15-5:9, 2nd Thessalonians 2:1-12) ?
116) If the rapture is mentioned in Matthew 24, where is the 2nd coming mentioned in Matthew 24?
117) If Jesus said nobody knows the day or hour of his coming, and that means we cannot know when he is coming, why did Jesus spend 31 verses telling them what to watch for?
118) Why would Paul compare His coming to being like a pregnant woman (1st Thessalonians 5:3) ?
119) Does a pregnant woman know the "day or hour" of giving birth?
120) Does a pregnant woman understand she would give birth within 9 months?
121) If that is true, then does that mean they could know his coming would happen within a certain period of time such as "this generation" (Matthew 24:34) ?
122) If Jesus cannot come until the gospel is preached to every single person in the world, will he ever come, since the world's population doubles every 18 years and those who haven't heard the gospel yet are more people than the entire world during the time of Jesus?
123) What about women who are pregnant today and in the future, does that mean that as long as there are pregnant women every day, that the gospel cannot be "preached" to every single person?
124) If the gospel cannot be preached to every single person, does that mean that Jesus could never come back?
125) If the great commission (Mark 16:15) is not yet fulfilled, why did Paul say it was fulfilled in Romans 1:8, 10:18, 16:26, Colossians 1:5-6, 23?
126) If the new Jerusalem is a physical location, how was it possible that the Hebrews in the 1st century were already there (Hebrews 12:22) if it had not come down yet?
127) If the mark of the beast is a microchip or physical tattoo, does that mean the seal of God is also a microchip or a tattoo?
128) How can the Zionist movement to restore Israel be fulfillment of Israel being gathered, when scripture says they cannot be gathered except in a state of repentance (Jeremiah 50:4-5) ?
129) Was the Zionist movement in 1948 in a state of repentance?
130) If Revelation was written after 70 AD, why is there no evidence to prove it?
131) Why are there some who claim Israel did not get all their land yet?
132) Why does scripture record they got all the "land promises" to Abraham (Genesis 15:18 and 22:17) which were fulfilled, because God kept his promises? - (Joshua 11:23; 21:23-25, 1 Kings 4:20-21, Nehemiah 9:7-8, and Psalm 105:42-44)
133) If the promises to Israel are forever and unconditional, why does God say it is conditional in Deuteronomy 28?
134) If the man of sin (2nd Thessalonians 2:3) is still in the future, why did Paul say the man of sin was alive in the 1st century (the mystery of iniquity doth already work) ?
135) If dispensationalism has been of the "historic" Christian faith, why was it unheard of prior to the 1830's?
136) If Jesus was going to physically come in the clouds as he left, why did the angel tell them he would come in a like manner (not the exact same way) (Acts 1:11) ?
137) If the angel told the men of Galilee that they would see Jesus come in a like manner (Acts 1:11) , then does that mean he came while the "men of Galilee" were still alive in the 1st century?
138) If John told the 7 churches in Asia that "behold he cometh with clouds and every eye shall see him, also those who pierced him" in Rev 1:7, does that mean those who killed Jesus would be alive when Jesus returned?
139) If God was going to go back to animal sacrifices for sin in a future millennium, does that mean Christ died in vain (Galatians 2:21) ?
140) If "this generation" in every scripture meant the people Jesus was speaking to and about, then how can "this generation" in Matthew 24:34 be talking about people thousands of years later?
141) If prophetic language is LITERAL, does that mean Mount Sinai melted at the presence of the Lord, since the hills melt at the presence of the Lord (Nahum 1:5) ?
142) If there is no more sun in the new heaven and earth, does that mean the Lord's name does not endure forever (Psalms 72:17) ?
143) If there is no more moon in the new heaven and earth, why does Isaiah 66:23 say all flesh would worship God from one new moon to another?
144) If prophetic language is LITERAL, why did none of the cosmic events described in Isaiah 13 literally happen when it was fulfilled according to Daniel 5?
145) If the "whole world" in scripture means "every single person on the globe", did Paul say that people from North and South America, Antarctica, Asia, Africa spoke about the faith of the 1st century Romans (Roman 1:8) ?
146) If "caught up" in 1st Thessalonians 4:17 means Jesus will physically take the church out of the planet earth, did the man mentioned in 2nd Corinthians 12 also physically fly off planet earth when it says he was "caught up"?
147) If the resurrection is on the last day (John 11:24) , but the Christian age has no last day (Ephesians 3:21) , then when is the resurrection?
148) If the resurrection is still in the future, why did Jesus say in John 5:25, "the hour is coming and NOW IS, when the dead shall hear the voice of the son of God and they that hear shall live"?
149) If the resurrection is still in the future, why did Daniel say it would be fulfilled when the power of the holy people was completely shattered, which could only be Jerusalem's destruction in 70 AD?
150) If death is physical, why does Paul say death is of sin and the law in 1st Corinthians 15:56?
151) If death is physical, why does Jesus say those who live and believe in him will never die?
152) If death is not physical, then how can the resurrection which redeems us from death be physical?
153) If the resurrection was about physically dead bodies coming out of physical graves, why did Jesus and Paul say the resurrection was about identifying who the people of God were (Luke 20:36, Romans 8:13-25, 2nd Timothy 2:19) ?
154) If John was told to "come up hither" in Revelation 4:1, did he physically leave the planet?
155) If not, why do people use Revelation 4:1 to "prove" the rapture of the church?
156) Why do people say the church is not mentioned after Revelation 4:1, when Revelation 22:16 says it was written to the churches?
157) If there is no sin in the new heaven and earth, how can there still be sinners in it (Isaiah 65:20) ?
158) If those who are "taken" in the rapture according to Matthew 24:40-41 are the righteous, why does the bible say the WICKED were taken in Matthew 24:39?
159) Why should we read the "thousand years" in Revelation 20 as literal, knowing that the number thousand has significant meaning as to completion, perfection, etc (Deut 7:9, 1st Chr 16:15, Psalms 50:10, 105:8) ?
160) If God was going to go back to physical Jews in the future, why doesn't the new testament speak about it?
161) If the bible is to be read 100% literally, why do some dispensationalists say the 7 churches in Asia (Revelation 1-3) are "church ages" and not "literal" churches?
162) If there are 7 church "ages" in Revelation 1-3, why doesn't scripture speak about it?
163) If "shortly" means "2000 years or longer", does that mean it was going to take Timothy 2000 years to be sent to us by Paul (Philippians 2:19) ?
164) If Daniel was told to seal up his words for the time of the end (Daniel 12:4,9) , and Jesus quoted (unsealed) Daniel 12:1-8, wouldn't that mean the time of the end was in the 1st century?
165) If the world is really getting worse and worse and the end is in the next few years, why do dispensationalists get married?
166) Wouldn't that mean they really do NOT believe the end is near, because Paul said the time was short and those who had wives will be as though they had none (1st Cor. 7:29) ?
167) If the world is really getting worse and worse and the end is in the next few years, why do dispensationalists have children?
168) Wouldn't that mean they really do NOT believe the end is near, because Jesus said woe to them with child and who give suck in those days (Matthew 24:19) ?
169) Wouldn't it be very cruel of them to bring a child into a world they honestly believe is getting "worse and worse"?
170) If Jesus' 2nd coming is as a thief, how can he come loudly, visibly that the world can see him coming?
171) Wouldn't a thief come as quietly as they could, so nobody knew he came except the people he warned prior to his coming?
172) If Jesus' 2nd coming is as a thief, wouldn't that mean that nobody knew he came, since nobody knows when a professional thief has come in the night?
173) If nobody knew Jesus' came, except his followers (John 14:22-23) , wouldn't it be very possible that the world didn't know he came at all?
174) If Paul said wolves would enter into the church, teaching perverse things and raising up disciples after themselves (Acts 20:28-31) , isn't it possible that they taught a false eschatology, which is why a majority of the "creeds" afterward missed the 2nd coming?
175) If the jews in the 1st century missed the first coming of Jesus because of their ignorance of the scriptures (Mark 12:24) , isn't it entirely possible that Christians living in the 21st century have missed the 2nd coming of Jesus for the same reason?
176) Why would the gates of New Jerusalem be left open if everything outside this city is destroyed (Revelation.21:25) ?
177) If everyone outside these gates were burned up, and there is nobody left alive outside these gates, why are there people still entering through the gates into the city after the New Jerusalem comes down from Heaven (Revelation 21:24) ?
178) If the resurrection is physical, why did Jesus say those who are resurrected are like the angels of heaven (Matthew 22:30) ?
179) Aren't the angels of heaven "ministering spirits" - Hebrews 1:14?
180) Why do dispensationalists say we are 1) on earth….2) when we die, we go to heaven….3) at the rapture, we come back to earth….4) at the rapture we go back to heaven….5) at the 2nd coming we come back to earth 7 years later to be there for 1000 years….6) after the thousand years, we go to a new heaven and earth?
181) If the world is going to end, why does the bible say it will NEVER end? (Genesis 8:21-22, Psalms 78:69, 89:36-37, 93:1, 96:10, 104:5, 119:90, 148:4-6, Isaiah 45:17, Eccl. 1:4, Ephesians 3:21)
182) If "like manner" is exactly how Jesus would return as he left in Acts 1:11, does that mean Jesus left while all the tribes of the earth (land) were wailing (Zech. 12:10, Matthew 24:30, Revelation 1:7) ?
183) If "like manner" is exactly how Jesus would return as he left in Acts 1:11, does that means Jesus left riding a white horse (Revelation 19:11) ?
184) If "like manner" is exactly how Jesus would return as he left in Acts 1:11, does that mean Jesus left judging every man according to his works (Matthew 16:27, Revelation 22:12) ?
185) If "like manner" is exactly how Jesus would return as he left in Acts 1:11, does that mean Jesus left and raised the dead in Christ (1st Thess. 4:16-17) ?
186) If "like manner" is exactly how Jesus would return as he left in Acts 1:11, does that mean Jesus left with a sword coming out of his mouth (Revelation 19:15) ?
187) If the end of the age is still in the future, why in Matthew 13:39, 24:3 does it say it was in the future, but only 30 years later, in Hebrews 9:26, the end of the age was present day?
188) How can people justify the end of the age stretching beyond its 30 year fulfillment?
189) If Israel and the Christian church are 2 different groups of people who have 2 separate covenants, and the hope of Israel is the resurrection (Acts 23:6, 24:14-15, 26:6-8) , why is it taught Christians will experience any type of resurrection, being that it was only for Israel?
190) If the Christians will be resurrected, but the hope of Israel is the resurrection, and the resurrection is the hope of the believer (Romans 8:25, Titus 2:13) , would that not clearly prove that the believer in Jesus Christ is considered Israel (Galatians 6:15-16) ?
191) If dispensationalists can believe in an invisible, spiritual coming of Christ for the "rapture", then why do they condemn Preterists for teaching in that very same nature of fulfillment in 70 AD?
192) If dispensationalists accuse Preterists of being outside the creeds of the Christian faith, because they disagree with the eschatology of the creeds, would that mean that dispensationalists are also outside the creeds of the Christian faith, since they also do not agree with the eschatology of the creeds? (The Nicene creed says Christ will come again to judge the living and the dead, yet dispensationalists say Christ will come again in the rapture and will NOT judge the living and the dead) .
193) If Jesus and the apostles all taught Jesus' coming was thousands of years away (as dispensationalism teaches) , why were the Thessalonians so upset about their loved ones who died before the coming of Christ (1st Thess. 4:13) ?
194) Is it possible that the inspired apostle Paul told them Jesus was coming in their lifetime, which is why they were upset when some of them died before Christ came?
195) Did Paul mislead the Thessalonians if he taught them Jesus was coming in their lifetime, but Jesus didn't really come in their lifetime?
196) If Paul told the Thessalonians that they would be alive when Christ comes (as he writes it) , yet they all died and Christ still hasn't come for 2000 years, does that mean Paul's writings are NOT inspired?
197) If Paul had taught the churches to believe in a physical resurrection, how could Hymaneus have overthrown the faith of some so easily, saying the resurrection was past already (2nd Timothy 2:17-18) ?
198) If Hymaneus told them the resurrection was past already, and they believed in a physical resurrection, wouldn't they have looked in their local cemeteries to see that the bodies were still in the graves, and therefore, their faith could not be overthrown?
199) If Hymaneus taught a different nature of the resurrection than Paul did, why did Paul only condemn the fact Hymaneus was off on the timing?
200) If "at hand" is the correct translation of "eniste¯mi" in 2nd Thessalonians 2:2, and it says to NOT believe a letter "as from" the apostles that say the day of Christ is "at hand", does that mean we should NOT believe that Romans, James, Philippians, Hebrews, Revelation, 1st Peter are inspired from the apostles, since they all declare the "day" was "at hand"?
201) If "mello" is translated "about to" in Revelation 10:4 in the KJV, why isn't it translated "about to" in most other texts including prophetic texts in the KJV?
202) If "mello" was translated consistently correct in scripture, then wouldn't that mean there was no doubt as to the time restriction of the Parousia?
203) If the 1900 year "gap" in the 70 weeks was a "secret" that was withheld from Daniel and other prophets, why does Amos 3:7 say God reveals his SECRETS to his servants the prophets?
204) If God reveals his secrets to his servants the prophets, and his prophets don't mention a 1900 year "gap" in Daniel's 70 weeks, then doesn't that mean there is NO gap in the 70 weeks?
205) If Daniel 12 is still in the future, does that mean that "children of thy people" in verse 1 and "the holy people" in verse 7 are the jews living today?
206) If the Jews living today are the "holy people" of Daniel 12:7, yet it is taught that God will never destroy the Jews and they will keep their land and power forever, then how can the "holy people" have their power completely shattered?
207) If the "holy people" being the Jews cannot have their power completely shattered ever, then does that mean that there cannot be a great tribulation (12:1) , resurrection of the just and unjust (12:2) , the righteous shining forth as the firmament (12:3) ?
208) What purpose would it serve for Jesus to come back physically and visibly?
209) Why would Jesus have to come back in the flesh to reign on the earth?
210) Why would Jesus say he would abode with the Father in the believer if Jesus was coming back physically?
211) If Jesus was not omni-present (everywhere at one time) while he was in the flesh, does that mean Jesus won't be omni-present if he comes again in the flesh?
212) If the rapture or 2nd coming is when we shall "see Him as he is", why do those who believe it, say people can go to heaven when they die?
213) Does that mean when they die and go to heaven, they won't "see Him as he is"?
214) Or does it mean that they will "see Him as he is" 2 different times?
70) If Christ was actually in His eternal physical resurrection body, will we be raised with the same physical body and likeness as Christ was raised with (1 John 3:2) ?
a) Was He physical? Will we have that same physical body? b) Was he any age? What age? Will we be the same age as Christ? c) Will we too have scars that we had previously? Christ did. d) Will we all be raised male? Christ was. e) What about babies? Will they be raised as babies? Or will all people suddenly be raised at the prime age of 30 like Christ?
You may ask, "why did you put the 70th question after the 214th question?" Well, I'm only using the same fallacy of logic dispensationalists use when applying the 70 weeks of Daniel... just consider in the intervening questions part of a gap between the 69th and the 70th!

revelation chapter 5 already happened when jesus conquered and bind the enemy by the blood of the lamb. revelation chapter six is just going to happen, because jesus is the only one able to open the seals, but the lord is already took the authority from satan and he is bound by the cross, but he will be release as soon as the gospel is preached to all the nation to deceive once more and this is shown in 2thessalonians2:1 when he will be loose again.
