Is Calvary Chapel a cult? What is wrong? How Calvary Chapel adds to the Bible…

Have you ever had a strange feeling in your gut about Calvary Chapel? If so, you will want to read this (it has been my most-viewed article). You walk into the church on a Sunday morning. Everyone is worshipping God with hands raised. You greet smiling faces. The message is delivered from the Bible (word for word) in a powerful, authoritative manner by the senior pastor. Greetings are made. You drop some money in the “tithe” box. Great day at church, and you do this year after year after year. The pastor says… Read More

For this we say to you by the word of the Lord – a note on the secret rapture heresy

“For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the COMING OF THE LORD will by no means PRECEDE those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will DESCEND from heaven with a SHOUT, with the voice of an archangel, and with the TRUMPET of God. And the dead in Christ will rise FIRST. THEN we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always… Read More

The rapture lie and the order of events in last days: Tribulation, great tribulation, resurrection of the dead in Christ, and lastly living believers caught up (raptured)…

The timing of the resurrection of dead believers in Christ (and what will happen to the living): “Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the LAST DAY.” (John 11:23.24) “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: THEN we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in… Read More

The REAL definition of the word ‘tribulation’…

The word ‘tribulation’ means persecution, not God’s wrath: “Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.” Acts 4:22 KJV. The word ‘tribulation’ does not mean God’s wrath. Why would we enter into the kingdom of God ‘through much of God’s wrath’? There are many Bible scholars and pastors who say that the word ‘tribulation’ means God’s wrath. This is simply not Bible truth and just another lie that most Christians believe because that… Read More

‘Burden of the Lord—The Words of the Lord, or the Reasonings of Men?’ by Mark G. Judy

By Mark G. Judy  Feeling a sense of sadness, a burden…..not sure how to even put it into words…..Why is it that some of the most ardent supporters of truth still get tripped up over “pre-trib”???? They can go toe-to-toe with any false teacher and with chapter and verse, expose the lies with truth that is straightforward & direct…..and yet, pre-trib is anything BUT straightforward & direct. It cannot be explained nor supported in a straightforward & direct manner. Rather, various scriptures must be “explained” with theories & conjecture that very few… Read More

The ‘pre-tribulation secret rapture’ exposed: The secret rapture is a new revelation and should be avoided

The rapture is a nonbiblical term used to describe the catching up of living believers into the clouds to meet the Lord in the air at the return of Christ, as described in 1 Thessalonians 4:17. Did you know that the Bible makes very clear that this event will be a loud event, not a secretive, quiet event or disappearance? The word rapture does not appear in the Bible. The secret pre-tribulation rapture theory is derived mainly from two verses in the Bible. The first one is from 1 Thessalonians 4: “For… Read More

The ‘secret rapture’: Biblical or unBiblical? Will Christians be spared from the coming persecution during the tribulation?

Christians will not be spared from persecution. Christians have never been spared from persecution. There will be many false prophets that arise and lie to people. He who stands firm to the end will be saved. “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of… Read More

A quest for Truth: Pre-Trib Rapture…theory or truth? A look at 1 Thessalonians 5…

“Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, ‘There is peace and security,’ then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. For you are all children of light, children of the day…. Read More
