Rod Parsley, “The last pages of your Bible read like the front pages of your paper”

I’ll never understand what they base many of their prophecy beliefs on.

Charisma: End-Times Teachers Say This Is Rapture Generation

Speakers at a recent prophecy conference proclaimed that this is “the rapture generation” as they warned of a looming one-world government and attacks on Israel that could hasten end-times events.

“The last pages of your Bible read like the front pages of your paper,” said conference host Rod Parsley in a dramatic video introduction that included footage of recent earthquakes and other natural disasters. “You are here because you’ve been chosen to live in this final hour.”

The Collide 2010 conference, held March 5-7 at Parsley’s World Harvest Church in Columbus, Ohio, featured end-times teachers Grant Jeffrey and Jack Van Impe, both of whom host widely viewed prophecy programs on Christian television. The event also included Donald Perkins, an evangelist and Bible prophecy instructor at Immanuel Bible College in San Diego, and Aaron Cohen, a Bible prophecy teacher and human rights activist.

More than 3,000 people attended each of the six sessions in person while others watched live online. “Prophecy is vital to the church in the last days,” Jeffrey said. “This is the most exciting generation to live since Jesus walked the earth. We are living in the rapture generation.”

Jeffrey, host of the Bible Prophecy Revealed television program, said prophecy is significant for another reason. “People will read prophecy when they won’t read anything else religious and won’t darken the door of a church,” he said. “People want to know what the future holds.”

Like many proponents of dispensational pre-millennialism—the belief that there will be a seven-year tribulation period before Christ returns to establish His 1,000-year reign—the conference presenters believe the status of Israel will predict the progression of end-time events.

Jeffrey said Ezekiel 38 predicts a “pile-on” of attacks against Israel by several nations, which he believes is imminent and will revolve around oil resources. “Israel has just found three of the largest oil reserves in the world—off Haifa,” a major seaport located on Israel’s Mediterranean coast.

He believes this is largely behind the tension building between Israel and other nations including Iran and Russia, which Jeffrey says will lead to the final battle of Armageddon. “This is why Israel is so convinced they must take out Iran’s nuclear capability when the rest of the world favors diplomacy,” he said.

Van Impe believes the next major biblical event will be the rapture. As signs, he points to what he says are indications of a one-world government forming and technology to monitor every human being already being used experimentally.

Jeffrey claims global warming is the invention of organizations seeking to find a common cause in order to create a global government. “Global warming has a hidden agenda,” he said. “It’s a pretext to achieve a socialist global agenda where America will no longer be the America you grew up in.”

Jeffrey also refutes the widely accepted belief that there is a looming oil shortage. “Running out of oil is nonsense,” he said. “They have found hidden oil 1,000 feet down-in the U.S.-enough to fuel the whole world for centuries. America and Canada are absolutely oil independent if they want to be.”

Most of the conference attendees were Christians, but during his sermon Sunday Parsley warned people to be rapture-ready. He outlined a chilling scenario for those who might be left behind for “seven years of tribulation,” which he said would be 100 times worse than the devastation from 9/11, Hurricane Katrina and the recent earthquake combined.

Utilizing visual aids including real firearms and backpacks, he said those left behind would need to get out of cities, gather food and Bibles, arm themselves and refuse to take the mark of the beast.

  1. Saints,

    “I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel.” (Gal. 1:6)

    There is another deception being spread in these last days the Holy Spirit wants to expose. Most Christians accept it without any question. Prophecy teachers Grant Jefferies, Hal Lindsey, Rod Parsley, and John Hagee teach the rapture must come before the Beast wars against the saints.
    In an attempt to reach out to Catholics, an elated Dr. Jack Van Impe announces even Pope Benedict is preaching on how near the rapture of the church is. [28. Jack Van Impe-Signs Of Coming Wars Are Imminent 2, T. 5:05-6:50] Dr. Billy Graham is so convinced he has devoted the entire year to teaching Jesus’ coming has drawn near, at any moment.

    “…’Take heed that you not be deceived. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and, ‘The time has drawn near.’ Therefore do not go after them.'” (Luke 21:8)

    Jesus warns believers not to believe in them (go after them). Many ask how could such admired teachers be so wrong on the timing of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him? (Luke 21:20-36, Mat. 24:29-31) They are not only wrong; they’re setting up the church for the greatest falling away in its history (2 Thes. 2:3-4). How so? Only the blood washed saints victorious over the Beast will be delivered from the wrath to come (1 Thes 1:10, Rev. 7:14; 15:2)!

    Let’s stand for the doctrine of Christ, Paul

  2. I wonder when these conferences were set up-could ministers be trying to make money on the times and taking advantage of the situation-Jim Bakker has a TV show and sells emergency food and survival gear-
    each of these ministers sell prophecy books or cd series-it’s very interesting.

  3. I am a preacher of the gospel. I advocate the coming of the Lord. I’m a writer of prophetic events thru my publishing partner – Destiny Image as well as a facebook account. But I am not an advocate of what many of my brothers in Christ are promoting, that is the biased notion that the Church will be raptured away before the tribulation begins.

    It is my belief, through scripture, that we are not going anywhere until the last trump sounds. But, my fear is that the church is being set up for failure by bad theology, i.e., the pre-trib movement. I have always said that many of these men, Perry Stone, Grant Jeffreys, Hal Lindsay, Rod Parsley and so many others, are going to give an account to a very upset group of believers when the things we have ignored or shunned begin to happen. This is not so much a false teaching as it is bad theology based on a flawed concept. I prefer to think it has nothing to do with the pre-tribulation concept as it has everything to do with the very popular dominion theology teaching that is so prevaliant these days.

  4. I think the tribulation is right now. at least in the other countries that Christians are dying in just because of the fact that they are Christians and believe in God and Jesus…just yesterday hundreds were slaughtered in Nigeria for that… American Christians WILL NOT escape the Tribulation, prepare for it,,, cloth yourselves in the Armor of God…. take your stand,keep the faith!

    • No Deb, the tribulation has not begun. You’ll know when it begins, trust me – you’ll know.

  5. Grant I think you are correct, this is an attempt to use prophecy to keep the money flowing since most of there follwers may be struggling with finances due to the economy. Last month it was Haiti, this month it is the end time prophecy. Woe to them that folllwer after these false teachers of prophecy.

  6. [Here’s what greeted me recently on the internet)


    by Dave MacPherson

    The word “secrecy” when applied to Christ’s return can refer to two different things: time and visibility. Before 1830 the only coming Christians looked for was the “every eye shall see him” second advent to earth – secret only in point of time.
    Enter Margaret Macdonald in 1830. She saw “the one taken and the other left” before “THE WICKED” [Antichrist] will “be revealed” – and added that her pretrib rapture would not be “seen by the natural eye” but only by “those who have the light of God within.” Her rapture was doubly secret: at an unknown day and hour and also invisible to “outsiders.”
    Desperate to eliminate Margaret as the pretrib originator and the Irvingites as the first public teachers of pretrib, Darby defender Thomas Ice foolishly claims that they taught a secret POSTTRIB coming even though he knows that when Hal Lindsey teaches “one taken” etc. before the Antichrist “is revealed” Lindsey is expressing the kernel of the pretrib view – what MM and the Irvingites clearly taught before Darby did! Google “X-Raying Margaret” and “Edward Irving is Unnerving” to see why they are properly labeled “pretrib.”)
    As early as June 1832, Irving’s journal taught that only “to those who are watching and praying…will Christ be manifested…as the morning star. To the rest of the church, and to the world, this first appearance will be…unintelligible.” (“Present State of Prophetic Knowledge” etc., p. 374)
    Always trailing and “borrowing” quietly from the Irvingites who in turn had “borrowed” from Margaret, Darby in 1845 finally sounded like them when he wrote that “the bright and morning Star…is the sweet and blessed sign to them that watch…And such is Christ before He appears [at the final advent to earth]. The Sun will arise on the world….The star is before the [Sun], the joy of those who watch. The unwakeful world, who sleep in the night, see it not.” (“Thoughts on the Apocalypse,” p. 167)
    And Lindsey’s “Late Great Planet Earth,” p. 143, says that “the second coming is said to be visible to the whole earth (Revelation 1:7). However, in the Rapture. only the Christians see Him – it’s a mystery, a secret.”
    My bestselling book “The Rapture Plot” (available at online stores including Armageddon Books) has 300 pages of such documentation and proves that Margaret was the first to “see” a secret, pretrib rapture, that the Irvingites soon echoed her in their journal (which Darby admitted he avidly read), and that Darby was last on all of the crucial aspects of dispensationalism.
    Shockingly, all of the earliest pretrib development rested solely on unclear OT and NT types and symbols and NOT on clear Biblical statements. Margaret’s rapture was inspired by Rev. 11’s “two witnesses.” And her “secret visibility” rested on the “types” of Stephen, Paul, and John – all of whom saw or heard what others couldn’t see or hear.
    For 30 years Darby’s pretrib basis was the rapture of Rev. 12’s “man child” – actually his plagiarism of Irving’s usage of this “pretrib” symbol eight years earlier!
    As I said at the start, the “second advent to earth” is secret in point of time with its unknown “day and hour,” as Christ stated. Pretribs assert that if Christ returns for the church after the tribulation, we could count down the days and figure out the actual date of His return – which would contradict Christ’s words.
    But pretribs deliberately ignore the fact that Christ said that the tribulation days will be shortened – and He didn’t reveal the length of the shortening!
    Our opponents also assume that the “watch” verses prove the “any-moment imminence” of Christ’s return. But do they? II Peter 3:12 says we are to be “looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God” which all premills claim is at least 1000 years ahead of us and therefore hardly “imminent”! What’s the difference between “watching for” and “looking for”?
    Another gimmick has pretribs saying “Would you want Jesus to return at any moment and find out you’re sinning?” But Jesus ALREADY knows all about us! And the Holy Spirit, who’s also God, is ALREADY here (Rom. 8:27)!
    You have just learned a few of the many secrets that the Secret Rapture Gang has hidden for a long time. Evidently they have forgotten Luke 12:2’s warning that “there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed”!
    PS – For the ultimate in uncovered secrets, see engines like Google and type in “Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty.”

  7. Saints,

    It’s been almost two thousand years since Jesus ascended to the right hand of His Father (Acts 2:32-33). As we draw closer to the Great Tribulation, the Holy Spirit is preparing saints from every nation to get the victory over the Beast (Rev. 7:9-14; 15:2). This preparation is based on understanding what Jesus will accomplish during His second coming. You see, most ministers teach His coming is a singular event. Sincere men of God have vainly tried to fit the events involving His coming into one visit. How come? It’s because the Bible never speaks of two second comings. It speaks of The coming (Mat. 24:37), His coming (1 John 2:28), or Your coming (Mat. 24:3). The scriptures speak of one second coming. The misunderstanding is with the word ‘coming’.
    Coming can be translated an arrival with an ongoing presence. This includes the events making up His second coming (Mat. 24:27, 37, 39, John 2:28, 1 Cor. 15:23). Coming can also represent the moving within these events; the moving from one point to another (Mat. 24:30, Mark 13:26, Luke 21:27, Rev. 1:7). While sharing on the Mount of Olives, Jesus was speaking about the beginning of His coming (Mat. 24:27). The coming of the Son of Man represents the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the gathering up of believers living on the earth (Mark 13:26-27). This arrival in the clouds will initiate His coming. What do you mean? What if I told you His coming is more than a single visit. That it includes four events. Would you believe it? Probably not. On a typical Sunday morning in America, you will hear the catching up of the elect from the wrath to come has nothing to do with the second coming of Christ. So if this gathering isn’t part of the second coming then what is it? According to Jesus, His coming has a beginning and an ending (Mat. 24:30, Rev. 21:9-10). Let me give you an example. Let’s say last week I taught a prophecy seminar at a church in Nashville. I arrived on Friday and taught an evening session. The next day I taught a morning session. That afternoon I taped a radio show. Before returning home on Sunday I preached two services. There are several things I did in relation to my coming. When used as a noun, my coming to Nashville includes everything I did while I was there.
    Here’s another example. Let’s review the events that took place during Christ’s first coming. The Word of God was born in a manger (John 1:14, Luke 2:16). The Messiah was twelve when He shared with teachers (Luke 2:46). At thirty, the Lamb of God was baptized by John (Mat. 3:13-16, John 1:29). After this, the Son of Man healed the sick, cast out demons, and proclaimed the gospel (Mark 1:34; 2:10). These events were all part of His first coming which began in a manger and ended when the Son ascended to His Father (John 20:17, Acts 1:9-11).

    Jesus highlights each event of His second coming. (Chart-The Second Coming of Christ) His second coming will begin when the Son of Man comes in the glory of His Father (Mat 24:30-31, I Thes. 4:15-17). Angels will gather the dead in Christ from heaven before gathering the overcomers from earth (John 5:28-29, Rev. 7:9-14).
    “Then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then He will send His angels, and gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest part of earth to the farthest part of heaven.” (Mark 13:26-27)
    The second event is the Deliverer returning to earth for the salvation of Israel (Acts 1:11, Dan. 9:24, Rev. 10:1-7).
    “And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: The Deliverer will come out of Zion, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; For this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins.” (Rom 11:25-27)
    When the Jewish people see their Messiah they will say, ‘barukh haba b’shem Adonai’ (blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord). After fulfilling the mystery of God, the Lord will split the Mount of Olives and hide this remnant from God’s final wrath (Rev. 14:1-4, Zech. 14:4-5, Rev. 15:1).
    The third event is the Word of God appearing in heaven at the great day of God Almighty, Armageddon (Rev. 16:14-16).
    “Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.” (Rev. 19:11-13)
    The Word will make war against the Beast and his armies (Rev. 19:17). During this supper of the great God the Beast and the False Prophet will be cast into the lake of fire (Rev. 19:20-21) Then the Rider of the white horse will kill all who worshiped the Beast.
    His second coming will end after a demolished earth is restored like the Garden of Eden (Ezek. 36:35, Rev. 22:1). The Lamb of God will descend to a new earth with His bride inside a new heaven, the New Jerusalem (2 Pet. 3:13, Rev. 21:2-10).
    “Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, ‘Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.’ And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God.” (Rev. 21:9-10)
    The best way to comprehend the consequences of Christ’s second coming is to understand the timing of the Son of Man, the Messiah, the Word of God, and the Lamb of God. All four are illustrated in The Revelation of Jesus Christ (Rev. 7:9-14; 10:1-7; 19:11-21; 21:9-10).

  8. I was watching a Rod Parsley program last night 5/26/2010 and he had Jack Van Impe on as his guest.Ole Jack got so worked up, where many men of God, see the Church as the true Israel of God,and he said that the preachers that has done this,God has removed their names from the book of life and he is glad their names have been removed from the book of life.I almost cried to hear a so-called man of God say more or less that he is glad to see some preachers go to hell.To want someone to go to hell is hate period and if I would of been Rod Parsley I would have drew the line and said wait just a minute there Jack your not showing the love of the Christ you claim as your Saviour.

    Clearly there are parts of the Bible he has not read like 1st John 2:11 But he that hateth his brother is in darkness,amd walketh in darkness,and knoweth not whither he goeth,because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.[KJV]

    I think Jack has lost his mind.


    • Ole Jack got so worked up, where many men of God, see the Church as the true Israel of God,and he said that the preachers that has done this,God has removed their names from the book of life and he is glad their names have been removed from the book of life..

      It is enough to make one cry… 😦

      Its astounding swmiller, the many Christians who will base another person’s salvation upon their answer to the ‘who is Israel’ question.

      The bible makes it clear, True Israel, under the new covenant, is made up of all believers in Christ.

      28There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

      29And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. Gal.3

  9. I agree pjmiller.

    I am an ex-dispensationalist and began my research on why i believed what i believed and came to find,that for over 18 centuries the church knew nothing of what is being taught today in pulpits acroos the globe.According to Jack Van Impe every soul for over 18 centuries went to hell until his Darby and Scofield theology came and rescued the perishing.

    Most in the Dispensational church today know nothing of the counter attack against the reformation by Romes Jesuit order.I am firmly convinced that Darby and Scofield were secret agents of Rome and I believe with the reformed fathers that the Anti-Christ is the pope and satan will completely possess the final pope of this earths history.The Jesuits infilteration of the dispensational seminaries and our government etc.

    Here is my view.

    #1.Is a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem and reinstituted animal sacrifices biblical?

    Absolutely not and this theology is a rank attack upon what Christ did at the cross of Calvary and the book of Hebrews completely contradict this heretical theology.

    #2.Who is really pushing the rebuilt temple etc?

    The Jesuit order wants Jerusalem and the Temple Mount for a place the pope can rule the world in a rebuilt Temple.

    Also the Jew has been exalted to God like status and can do no wrong in the eyes of the dispensationalist.The Bible says Christ will destroy his enemies upon His return 2nd Thess 1:7-10 so this contradicts that the Jews will have a second chance to see Christ and then accept Him and then all Israel shall be saved.

    The dispensationalist see Zech 12:10 as unfulfilled when John 19:36-37 says this Scripture has already been fulfilled when the Jews looked upon Jesus piercings on the Cross.

    The dispensationalist are looking for a Jesus to sit upon a Throne in Jerusalem (i.e.Davids Throne)but the Bible says the resurrection of Christ and His exaltation was this promise of the Throne of David fulfilled.(Acts 2:30-37)

    You know I have a scofield reference bible and every Scripture that completely contradicts his heretical theology he passes by without so much as a comment.

    Also the land promises to the Jew was fulfilled in Joshuas day (Josh 21:43-45)and what does scofield say on these verses?He is silent (i.e.dumb) and could not speak because he knew he was doing the bidding of the antichrist.

    I believe Jack Van Impe`s sending preachers to hell for saying the Church is Israel can be reversed for exalting the Christ rejecting Jew to God like status and giving them things unconditionally God has destroyed by His Judgments.

    Today is the day of salvation for the Jew not some coming second chance tribulation.

    O how crafty Rome is, and the so-called coming thousand years of Christ reigning from Jerusalem comes right out of the satanic Talmud and is a doctrine of demons (i.e.chiliasm)a first century heresy by cerinthus the HERESIARCH.

    Rumor is Thomas Ice is a Jesuit and Tim Lahaye has masonic symbols on some of his products.Also Perry Stones mentor John Miller is a Jesuit and TBN has Jesuit priest at times blending in.

    A chicken has a small brain but brains enough to figure this out and Jack Van Impe defending the popes and her perverted priest makes me want to slap him.No doubt Impe has lost his mind.

    God bless.

  10. swmiller,

    I agree with you with the exception of “who” will be seated in the earthly Temple which will be rebuilt.

    The individual who will sit as the “messiah” in the rebuilt temple will have to be of the 12 tribes. Right now Israelis are using DNA studies on Jews in an attempt to find pure blooded Levites for their temple priests.

    As a side note it should be understood that the mere fact that they are attempting this implies something VERY important. It implies that Jews today are not “pure blooded”. If they were, the Israelis would only need to find Jews with the last name “Cohen” in order to be a temple priest. The reason I state this is because Cohen is the name directly linked to the Levite tribe.

    However, the Israelis know they are having difficulty finding a Levite because the racial mix of Jews is multi-racial/ethnic.

    After the first Diaspora many Jews remained in Babylon and began to adopt the traditions and practices of the Babylonians. “Oral traditions” of which Jesus clearly rebuked were being taught. Jesus didn’t mince words with these Pharisees. However, it should be noted that at this time Jesus clearly identified the people of Israel as being “physical” descendents of Abraham when He stated in John 8: 37

    I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.

    However, Jesus clearly stated that although they were of Abrahams physical seed they were spiritually of the devil. John 8:39,44

    They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

    Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    Moving on to the 2nd Diaspora after AD 70 the Jews were now spread out through the known world of which time a great deal of intermingling happened over the centuries.

    After two millennia many of these people who claim they are “Jews” are really mixed racial/ethnic people some with more Jewish blood (Sephardic Jews) to little Jewish blood (Ashkenazi Jews) or no Jewish blood (Khazar Jews). It should be noted that the Sephardic Jews which have the highest % of Jewish Blood and are the smallest population of Jews of which there are roughly only 500,000 in the entire world. The rest of the millions of Jews are Ashkenazi which contain little to no Jewish blood. These are those of which came from Europe and resettled in the land of Palestine which we now know today as Israel.


    The reason this is important is because today we have millions of Christians worshiping at the feet of Talmudic religious mixed race Jews of European descent. These people will one day build a “new” Temple” with the consent of millions of Christians throughout the West. This sadly is being done while millions of “Christians” celebrate the death and destruction of Palestinians of which many Palestinians are Christians.

    Unfortunately by stating these facts one is deemed “anti-Semitic”. This is unfortunate because I do not endorse evil or death upon ANYONE. However, millions of Christians are chanting, “Death to Iran” as if they are God’s bodyguards of the Israeli government.

    In closing the high priest/messiah will be of Jewish Descent and a Jew not the Pope. By DNA studies the current Israelis will find their “needles” amongst the haystack of pure Jews. They still do exist in a very small quantity comprised mostly of the minority Sephardic Jews.

    After the rebuilt Temple, Mid east wars, death, and a “messiah” in the Temple the Pre-trib, Arminian, Dispensationalist will be looking up and waiting and waiting and waiting ………..

    This is unfortunate to say the least.

    All this death is being supported directly or indirectly by certain Christians.


  11. Kyle,do you think its impossible for any of the popes to be of Jewish descent?I have a firm conviction that the 112th (i.e.next pope)will be the final pope of this earths history and my firm conviction is that he will be a Jew.Jews are in high levels of power in the usa and control almost everything and the Vatican is behind the curtain in secret control of our American Government through their demonic Jesuit order.

    There is the argument its the Jews dummy….no its the Roman Catholic Church etc.No its the Jews being under the iorn fist of Rome` Jesuit order and when you see the Jew in America in power you are seeing Romes power.1 + 1 = 2.

    Read Michael Bunkers Swarms of Locust.

  12. I think everyone, including the fortune tellers, all agree that SOMETHING is about to happen! Something that will cause Bible End Time Prophecy to come into a more clear focus. The “birth pains” are increasing…

  13. yep, my spidey sense is going off!

  14. idk how that angry face got on my comment – i didn’t pick it i would’ve picked 😉
