Newest PTR Fad – But First…
The problem in America is that true suffering has yet to hit those who profess Christ, and when it comes the tares will quickly flee and turn to their true god, Satan. These will also persecute the true Saints that comprise the Body of the Lord Jesus Christ on this earth. How do I know this? Scripture states as much and the ultimate fulfillment will be when the anti-Christ and his followers seek to devour all marked with the Holy Spirit:
And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. (Re 12:13–14), and,
These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. (Jn 16:1–2)
There are many attending church every week unprepared for the coming persecution foretold by the Lord Jesus Christ in both Daniel and Revelation. These souls have a false comfort due to being under the tutelage of compromised men who long abandoned the prophetic text in favor of fairy tales of men for profit. Denying the veracity of the prophecy uttered by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself, such men cling to a theory that originated with Rome in the 18th century, which demonstrates a lack of fear of God who detailed the future of those who add to, or take from, prophecy (Rev 22:18-19). Scripture does not support this theory, and in that respect it can be likened to the theory of evolution.
The future of true, blood bought Saints promises intense persecution, culminating in the Lord Jesus Christ parting the eastern sky accompanied by the Holy Angels and resurrected Saints who died in faith and transformation to immortality of all living Saints joining Him as He slaughters the wicked.
Missing Prophecy – Grave Consequences
We know that the lost house of the tribes of Israel completely missed the announcement in their own scrolls that pointed to the arrival and birth of the Messiah of mankind. (See Gen 3:15, 22:18, 26:4, 46:10; Num 21:6-9, 24:17; Deu 18:15; Ps 16:9-10, 22:14-18, 132:11; Is 7:14, 9:6-7, 40:10-11, 50:6, 52:13-15, chp 53, 60:21; Jer 23:5, 33:14=15; Ez 34:23, 37:25; Dan 9:25; Mic 5:2, 7:20; Zec 6:12, 9:9-10, 12:8-10, 13:7; Mal 3:1-4, 4:2-6.)
There have been devastating consequences to the Hebrew people for failing to recognize and receive their Messiah. The prophets told of a king to be born of the line of David whose kingdom would never end, nevertheless, most in Jerusalem at the time of the birth, ministry, crucifixion, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ rejected him and now live with a veil over their hearts. They are hardened in unbelief just as Gentiles unless reborn in the Lord Jesus Christ. There are documents that indicate the Hebrew people lost their native language during the Egyptian diaspora. Apparently, the language absorbed much of the surrounding nations, and when the nation of Israel was formed today men reconstructed what they believe to be the Hebrew tongue. All books other than the Torah are of occult origin, including the Kabbalah and Babylonian Talmud. The latter attributes fake names to god and is comprised of combinations of idol-gods of Babylon, Pheonicians, Sumarians, and has quotes of noted Rabbis. There are some Talmud’s that have removed a most offensive teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ, but it matters not because this idea is still taught along with many other vile, demonic ideas. Fact is, Judaism is just like every other false religion that is leading adherents into an eternity of separation from God spent in the lake of fire known as hell. A few examples follow:
“He (the rabbi) then went and raised by incantations the sinners of Israel. He asked them…What is your punishment? They replied: With boiling (in) hot excrement.” (Gittin 57a)
“Jesus was a bastard born of adultery.” (Yebamoth 49b, p.324).
“Mary was a whore: Jesus (Balaam) was an evil man.” (Sanhedrin 106a &b, p.725).
“Jesus was a magician and a fool. Mary was an adulteress”. (Shabbath 104b, p.504).
Doctrines of Demons – Latest Outgrowth of PTR
Readers who also conduct research or spend any time on YouTube (YT) will have noticed there is a new fad highlighting September 23, 2017 as the date of the PTR. The basic premise is there will be a planetary alignment that mimics the one-time miracle which announced to the wise of the east the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ.
I am saddened that people are listening to anything promoted by proven false prophets such as Kim Clement², but am no longer of the illusion that many who profess the Name of the Jesus will search the bible as Bereans to verify 1) verse/teaching is in the bible, and 2) does not contradict scripture. God is not the author of confusion, Satan is:
And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. (1 Co 14:32-33), and,
Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. (2 Pe 1:20-21)
After listening to a few YT vids attempting to explain the idea, the most viewed was by Scotty Clarke whose charts are fascinating and he has an engaging personality; however, despite reaffirming he is not predicting the rapture that is what is happening. Following the most recent Hear The Watchmen conference at which Clarke was a speaker, L. A. Marzulli, whose work I have appreciated for years, conducted a brief interview with Clark and the only conclusion that can be drawn is they both believe this date to be “most probably” the PTR.
The scripture highlighted is Revelation 12:1-2:
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. (Rev 12:1-2)
There is a problem with what is occurring in the heavens on this date only nine stars and five planets, whereas scripture references twelve stars. This is nothing more than another theory which needs to be rejected.
Clarke states, “This is a clear picture of the pretribulation rapture of the body of Messiah, the church. The rapture is a birth. That means we are a baby. Prior to birth, we are in gestation. That means prior to gestation, conception had to take place. This happened at Pentecost, two thousand years ago (Ac 2:1-4). … [Clarke continues and beneath is the sentence “Conception is an ENTRANCE | Birth is an EXIT”] Things that we’ve been taught in Christendom are totally false and backwards; one of those, is that the church was born at Pentecost and I have proven that is completely false. That has been completely misunderstood, and it is in countless books and sermons. People still say the church was born at Pentecost it was not born at Pentecost. This is a birth story. Are there three births? When somebody is saved is that a second birth? [Ah, yeah.] The father led me to answer these three questions, Pentecost being a birth; salvation being a birth; and Trumpets being a birth. Only one can be true, because there’s only one birth. Rapture/Birth – you’ve gotta get the timeline of a birth correct. [On the screen behind him is The Rapture is the Exit (Rev 12:1-2) and Right Place For Birth.]
Continuing, Revelation 12:5 the child is born and caught up to the Throne. That is the same thing as the rapture as we meet him in the clouds and we go to be with him forever (1 Th 4:17, Rev 12:5 referenced). [Ticker on bottom of screen 1 Th 4:16-18 The head goes to meet the Body.] That hasn’t happened yet. … [Reading the Hallelujah scriptures4]
I ask the reader to pray for spiritual discernment, and the Armor of God (Eph 6:13-17) prior to considering the so-called Hallelujah scriptures. The reason for this is YAH is not the Name of God despite what is, to my mind, a reintroduction of an old deception. YAH is not Hebrew in origin and references the moon god. The only true name of God is I AM. Praying to God the Father in the Name of Jesus Christ as in this way we are certain to not fall into deception. Please exercise great caution to not fall into error, as I once was enamoured with all things Hebrew, and read for a few years the Complete Jewish Bible. There is a series by Cherie Bertram of Three Hearts Church dealing with all of the false names that have been introduced into our bibles and it would be beneficial to hear them prior to jumping in with both feet to the Hebrew movement. My desire was to know God more deeply, learn His various names and I have been forgiven as I was grieved to learn of the crafty deception of these books many of which have been authored by those yet outside of salvation.
Clarke continues, My error was believing all the books that taught it was referencing the virgin birth and that’s it. It’s not, it’s another birth as shown in the heavens. The child is the church being born. Questions that people have, but he has an iron rod. So, in the Psalms, God gave his son the iron rod to rule the nations. But in the church age chapters in Revelation 2:26-27 the Messiah now has an iron rod which he gives to the body. He deputizes us, gives his church the iron rod as we are to rule and reign with him as kings and priests in the millennial period to rule and reign with him. This is who the child is. So the woman is Israel, the child is the church being born and raptured to the throne and the dragon is Satan. Satan has seven heads which is seven kingdoms. You can also liken this to the New World Order because he controls the systems of this world.
[This comes from the “hallelujah scriptures”] … Flip back to the beginning. Genesis 1:14, this is creation. And Elohim said, “Let lights come to be in the expanse of the shamayim to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs, and for Appointed Times, and for days and years.
[Note: The deception is very strong here. Clearly, what one is to glean from this comment is that only those who are truly saved will be leaving the planet 9/23/17 in the PTR all else are not really born again in the Lord since we do not adhere to the false teaching.]
Scotty Clarke inserted the following in the cited YT vid linked in the notes:
Please understand I am not date-setting. I am awake, aware, and watching; and simply attempting to put the pieces of the puzzle together. We all are. As do you, I reserve the right to be wrong and to make adjustments to my thinking based on new information. Please do your own homework.
I stopped listening at this point, due to transcription fatigue! We are going to live through the tribulation, but will be spared by command of the Lord Jesus Christ to the Holy Angels to gather His Elect from the four corners of heaven (Mt 24:31).
If there was an impending rapture prior to the Tribulation, why does the Lord Jesus Christ describe in great detail the signs that precede the Second Coming?
And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. (Da 9:27)
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision:
For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
The sun and the moon shall be darkened,
And the stars shall withdraw their shining. (Joe 3:14–15)
And immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the kindreds of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his Angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect, from the four winds, and from the one end of heavens unto the other. Now learn a parable of the fig tree: when her bough is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near. So likewise ye, when ye see all these things, know that the kingdom of God is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. (Mt 24:29–35)
But take ye heed: behold, I have showed you all things before. Moreover in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall wax dark, and the moon shall not give her light. And the stars of heaven shall fall: and the powers which are in heaven, shall shake. And then shall they see the Son of man, coming in the clouds, with great power and glory. And he shall send his Angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, and from the utmost part of the earth to the utmost part of heaven. (Mk 13:23-27)
Then shall there be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars, and upon the earth trouble among the nations, with perplexity: the sea and the waters shall roar. And men’s hearts shall fail them for fear and for looking after those things which shall come on the world: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man come in a cloud, with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads: for your redemption draweth near. (Lk 21:25-28)
Notice in Matthew how the sign of the Son of man appears after the sun and moon are dark and the stars have fallen from heaven, then the Holy Angels sound the trumpet and gather the Elect. Satan likes to pretend to be god which is why so many are aware of weather manipulation, which I believe to be fact, but God yet has all His storehouses for inclement weather.
The tribulation has not happened yet, although I believe we are living through the acceleration of birth pangs. I believe if it is anything perhaps the 9/23 is the kickoff of the tribulation and we will witness a major uptick in persecution for faith globally. We will be here on the 24th, and must wait for God’s Son to appear in the sky while either surviving the tribulation or being martyred. Either way, we will be with our Father and each other. Glory be to God!
