I’m sure that Jan did not mean that “the privilege of saying ‘I told you so’” will make the Lord’s return “a glorious day”. But, for certain, she thinks that she has the upper hand in the argument; even though she like most pre-Trib teachers does not engage with us over the reasons we question her position.
Her having such an audience, 900 stations makes me wonder. I was listening to Hannity on Fox radio this week, and he bragged that he is now on almost 600 radio stations. So Jan’s 900 stations is amazing. Yet, in her podcast that I’m quoting from pictured above, she complains that the church is unwilling to consider the subject of Christ’s soon coming Rapture. It seems more to me like her message is about the only message being sought after today by a rather large audience, which she calls the remnant. Is it possible that this is an indication of a church body flocking to a particular message because they have itching ears?
2 Timothy 4:3 For [the] time will come when they will not tolerate sound doctrine; but [wanting] to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance with their own desires, (NASB2020)
Jan’s is a last days ministry. She often refers to her listeners as the remnant. Interestingly the only remnant in scripture makes reference to Jews who are God’s people or actual flock out of Israel. Approximately 80 times does remnant appear in Scripture, and only twice in the New Testament. In both NT passages it refers to Israel’s remnant.
Quite frankly hers is the message that for years I had wished was the Scriptural message, but I began to see too many scripture passages to the contrary. The message that I put out about those scriptures does not attract large audiences. Often I ask the Lord “why am I being inspired to speak on this subject of the last days”?“Hardly anyone is listening.” But the answer is always: there are some. And to those of you who do, I thank you for the occasional text, email, or post on “messenger”.
Jan sees anyone who does not agree with her view on the rapture’s timing as being a skeptic, but what Scripture tells us concerning the skeptic is not over the timing of the Rapture but over the message that He is coming.
knowing this first: that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.” 2 Peter 3:3-4 KJ21
What bothers me most about many christian teachers is the way they make frivolous use of the word while claiming to be literalists. I and many others not in agreement with Jan on the Raptures timing, still are watching with much interest the signs being displayed in our day.
The signs of His coming are ripening, the timing of the Rapture needs to be considered from the biblical perspective, and should answer and not raise more questions.
One of the biggest problems, in my opinion, with the pre-trib timing other than it’s being contradicted in certain Scriptures, is that it (the pre-Trib version) has always been presented as being unknown even as to the season of its nearness. For it has since the inception of its teaching been presented as being imminent. And if Jesus and Paul taught us anything about His visitations or coming it was that we His people should know the season that we are in. He highly criticized the Jews for not knowing the timing of His prophesied visitation to them. Today He is preparing to return for a bride made up of Jews and Gentiles that has made herself ready. That readying process is and will not be complete until the last Gentile and the remainder of a purged nation of Jews is finally added to the Olive Tree, for which ironically Jan names her ministry.
In this u-Tube podcast that I share with you today you will hear about things that are coming which are very disturbing. I agree with the take presented by Jan on the evil that is planned. But you will also here that the Tribulation is casting a shadow over the church. You will here that God is preparing us for what’s coming in that shadow produced by the Tribulation. Two years ago had you listened in to Jan’s podcasts you would have only heard about the imminent Rapture. So, has the imminent Rapture disappeared since we are being prepared? The closer we get to the Lords coming the more Tribulation we will see, and apparently the more changes we will see in Jan’s messaging. But I agree with most of this message and it does inform concerning much of what is planned for us.
The one disturbing fact is that it informs of the plan but offers no response to it on the part of the church. Why? — if you believe that you won’t be here why not just let it come. If they thought that they would be here would they not at least want to peacefully resist the plan, at least for the sake of their own families?
With these things in mind —worth the listen:
