I have proposed to anyone who would listen over my many years that God’s word is truth. It was written by men inspired by God to all who would have both ears to hear and eyes to see. So now I ask — is it right for me to conclude otherwise and believe that these literal passages are speaking a completely different message then what they appear to be saying? If the word leads the believers to a state of confusion or disagreement is the spirit of Satan the deceiver actually inspiring parts of the Bible?
How Absurd you say. Why would you think me absurd? The Theologians themselves, the teachers of our day, the believers in the body of Christ have all but convinced me that this must be the case. “Why”, you ask. Let me attempt to show you that it must be true according to many; then you too can join me in my plight, or in my flight from their teaching.
I am about to show you literal statements straight from scripture that any 5th grade student would read, and understand, and be able to explain the meaning of, for a grade of A+; and yet, the Theologians, the teachers, and those who believe these teachers will say to me and to you that “these scriptures cannot be believed as stated”. I must then at least consider that the spirit of Satan must have inserted these sections into the scripture, for only the Spirit of the deceiver could tell us these things “knowing” that they mean something totally different.
So tell me was it Jesus Himself, who told John the complete sequence of events following His return in Revelation 20: 1-10, or was it Satan? I will not record this passage here for fear that Satan himself has inspired this writing, because, if it is not true, it then must be straight from the pen of the deceiver. I perceive that nearly 50% of all believers must reinterpret this passage or ignore it completely in order to regard “their own version of truth” not to be deceptive. And if we accept their version of this statement then we must first admit that this literal passage explaining our future did at one time deceive us into believing what we now believe to be a twisted, distorted version of truth.
But that is not the worst of what we must believe about literal statements of scripture which we are asked not to believe. So, tell me was it Jesus Himself, who told the disciples and us through them to preach a different gospel, then the one we preach? I’m sorry but I must quote this command in order to bring to your attention the deceptive nature of this verse. This verse according to possibly 70+% Of today’s theologians and teachers is, despite Jesus command, not to be followed by us. Wait it gets better. Jesus also told these same disciples to go and make more disciples, and get this, to teach them what He had commanded them. Do you not see the deception in what Jesus is supposed to have taught here. He did not mean any of this according to 70+% Of Dispensational teachers. “What you talking about Willis?”
This they say is another gospel for just Israel, it is not the gospel that we have seen spread over the past 2000 years started by the church fathers. Here is what Jesus said:
14 This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24:14 NASB
But listen this is total deception. Satan obviously snuck this in because today we are taught that this is not what Jesus meant. You can’t take this gospel to the whole world, because it’s just for the Israel in the Tribulation.
My friend this gospel they say is not the gospel we preach. There are at least 70% of us believers who know that there is only one gospel for us (the church), and that gospel is Paul’s gospel of grace, not this gospel of the kingdom that we apparently have been falsely told to preach.
In fact brothers only an angel will preach this gospel they say. Oh yes, they believe this angel verse in Revelation literally. It is to teach a different gospel than Paul’s. This verse in Revelation is not symbolically understood — no way — it is very clear. This angel is not symbolic — are you crazy?
And I saw another angel flying in midheaven, having an eternal gospel to preach to those who live on the earth, and to every nation and tribe and tongue and people;
Revelation 14:6 NASB
Wait a minute this gospel is to all nations. Strike that part of the verse will you — obviously Satan showing up in scripture where he has no business being. Israel is to be the recipient of this gospel.
Obviously my friend, Satan has placed these deceptive statements in scripture. Why you ask? Why — because the word is true and all men opposed are liars. Did not Paul make it clear?
But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! Come to think of it strike the entire verse in Revelation according to this verse here in Galatians 1:8 NASB
Certainly these passages were placed by The deceiver otherwise we must assume our own brethren accursed.
What madness is this that we must overcome in our day?
As to this salvation, the prophets who prophesied of the grace that would come to you made careful searches and inquiries, seeking to know what person or time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories to follow. It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now have been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things into which angels long to look.
1 Peter 1:10-12 NASB
What gospel is this I wonder? If this statement by Peter be true and not deception; then this gospel of grace that is preached was made known even to these prophets who possessed the Spirit of Christ? How can we think this to be anything but deception if we are to believe the vast majority of our religious leaders and teachers today?
We must take a stand either for these truths or else see them for what we are being told that they are. They are statements which must be interpreted. No wonder we live in total confusion in the church today. And total confusion yields for us all manner of divergent teachings within the body. Teachings that totally conflict with one another.
So which do we remove from our minds? — is it these scriptures that we should remove which are so clear, or do we remove from our minds those who tell us that they are not to be understood as they are plainly stated? Sure we might speculate some about what Jesus might have meant when He showed John a vision of an angel in heaven with an eternal gospel for all nations. That might require actually some further study and much prayer, but these other clear verses mean exactly what they say.
So now you must decide. Am I totally off my rocker? Or is there being perpetrated a great deception on the mind of the believer today? One which if not confronted will only worsen and will eventually lead many astray in a day and hour such as we are told will come. And our Lord said:
9 “Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. 10 At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. 11 Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. 12 Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved. 14 This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.
Matthew 24:9-14 NASB
These words were spoken to disciples, that the Lord knew would teach us, and for whom the Lord prayed these following words:
6 “I have manifested Your name to the men whom You gave Me out of the world; they were Yours and You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word. 7 Now they have come to know that everything You have given Me is from You; 8 for the words which You gave Me I have given to them; and they received them and truly understood that I came forth from You, and they believed that You sent Me. 9 I ask on their behalf; I do not ask on behalf of the world, but of those whom You have given Me; for they are Yours;….14 I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one. 17 Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth. 18 As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19 For their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth. 20 “I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; 21 that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.
John 17:6-9,14-15,17-21 NASB
Does this prayer also need to be cut from scripture for its deceptive message? For it asks for our unity with these disciples, who we are told represented the nation Israel. A nation that we are told that we can have no earthly part in because our residents is in heaven. Or again do we ignore those who teach against the content of this prayer with the content of their doctrine?
Paul in fact in his gospel taught the kingdom, and he taught that we are now having been saved as were these Jewish disciples very much a part of them. We he taught are in Him Christ just as Jesus prayed in John 17, he taught that we now are recipients of the promises, and covenants made to the Jewish saints of old.
Today you are being lead to believe that there is only one premillennial teaching and that that is Dispensational Premillennialism. Not so.
Spurgeon believed in the historic Premillennialism of the Early Church believers. I only became aware of this fact concerning him recently, but it has further emboldened me to teach you the truth as these early Christians understood it. Why — because this is also my belief based solely on passages such as these of which there are many. This truth is based upon these and others that you need to consider as well.
I have in fact been teaching on them for some time right here on this site. I cannot refrain from so doing. It is my calling. The early history of the church confirms that these scriptures were taken literally by those who taught them. I will do the same, and I encourage you to do the same.
