Sorry Paul Begley, But The ‘Blood Moon’ That Will Be Appearing In The Skies On July 27th Has No Connection With Any Bible Prophecy

A simple look at the book of Joel show a 100% impossibility of the upcoming blood moon on July 27th having anything to do with Bible prophecy.

The false prophets are excited, another ‘blood moon’ is scheduled to appear in the skies on July 27th.

The latest member to board the biblical illiteracy club is post toastie false teacher Paul Begley. He has made a video breathlessly warning about the  upcoming ‘blood moon’ and the myriad apocalyptic signs that will be attached to it. But rest easy, Christian, Begley’s prophecy, along with those of failed predictors like Irwin Baxter, Stephen Fletcher, John Hagee, Mark Biltz, David Meade in 2017, David Meade in 2018, and all the others, will come to naught.

A simple look at the book of Joel and taking that prophecy we find there in context, rightly divided, show a 100% impossibility of the upcoming orange moon on July 27th having anything to do with the Bible. Take a look.

“And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.” Joel 2:30,31 (KJV)

Joel is talking about a very specific period of time known as the time of Jacob’s trouble. The events that he sees through the eye of prophecy, revealed to him by the LORD, will take place at the Battle of Armageddon at the Second Coming of King Jesus and His Army made of up raptured Church soldiers.

Furthermore, you will note that Joel is not telling us that the moon will turn orange, or red, or any color at all. Joel is telling us, if you can believe it and I do, that the moon will turn into blood. Not blood colored, but it will become a ball of glowing blood.

Paul Begley and Post Tribulation doctrinal errors and false teaching

Paul Begley is another one of those Post Toasties who is just so excited about putting the Church in the time of Jacob’s trouble, a teaching not found anywhere in the Bible. But don’t let a little thing like the Bible stop you, Paul.

Does Paul Begley teach a Pretribulation Rapture?

As you will see when you watch his teaching he calls ‘Rapture Ready’, it is instantly obvious that Paul Begley is teaching a Post-tribulation rapture of the Tribulation saints. He is in no wise teaching a Pretribulation Rapture of the Church. Like all post toasties, Begley puts the Church into the time of Jacob’s trouble. The Church will not be in the time of Jacob’s trouble because it’s JACOB’S trouble, not the Church’s. Read this excellent article on why the Church has no place in the time of Jacob’s trouble

It was God’s Blood that was shed on Calvary so that we might have complete forgiveness of our sins. And blood is all through the book of Revelation, everywhere you look. Don’t believe me? Then you don’t believe the Bible for I am quoting it.

“And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus. For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.” Revelation 16:4-6 (KJV)

“These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.” Revelation 11:6 (KJV)

In the time of Jacob’s trouble, things are turning to literal blood all over the place. It’s global war, and everything is saturated in blood. Antichrist and his hordes are obsessed with it, so Jesus lets them have it by the glassful instead of water. In Joel’s prophecy, right before the appearance of King Jesus in the sky, the moon becomes a huge glowing ball of blood.

It is the sign of the Son of Man, literally and actually.

“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 the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” Matthew 24:29,30 (KJV)

What can take away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus. What does Satan hate more than anything else? The blood of Jesus. What does the prophet Joel see in the sky at the Second Coming? He sees the moon, normally a beautiful, peaceful glowing orb, turning into a swirling pool of liquid blood. It’s showtime.

But that time that Joel saw is not our time, not by a long shot.

FROM THE DAILY STAR: Preachers believe passages from the books of Acts and Revelation suggest the blood moon will accompany an ever-approaching end of days. The 21st century’s longest lunar eclipse will last almost two hours on July 27 and the moon will have a spectacular red tinge. While stargazers enjoy the dazzling phenomenon, doomsdayers will be preparing for armageddon. The theory was originally made famous by Christian ministers John Hagee and Mark Biltz who said the ongoing “tetrad” – four consecutive lunar eclipses which began in April 2014 with six full moons in between – is the indicator of the end of earth as described in the Bible in Acts 2:20 and Revelation 6:12. However the tetrad ended in September 2014 and we’re all still here. The end-of-days preachers insist some sort of tragic event is set to hit earth and possibly wipe it out. READ MORE

Joel’s blood moon prophecy takes place at the end of the time of Jacob’s trouble. But before the time of Jacob’s trouble can take place, the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church must happen. Then the rise of Antichrist, followed by a rebuilt Temple in Israel. Then Antichrist breaks the covenant three and a half years into it, and a three and a half year period of visible judgements in the form of Seals, Trumpets, and Vials must follow. Somewhere is all that chaos the 144,000 are sealed by God and Moses and Elijah return as the Two Witnesses and preach coming judgment for 3 and a half year period.

So, if you can cram all that into the next 5 days, then and only then will Paul Begley and all the other Post Trib ‘blood moon’ false prophets have a shot on July 27th.

No, The ‘Ordained To Eternal Life’ In Acts 13:48 Does Not Mean That God Saved People Before They Were Born As Calvinism Erroneously Teaches

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

In Acts 13:48, the Bible shows us how God ordained and appointed the gospel to go to the Gentiles as prophesied in the Old Testament that they might believe, this is not a proof text for Calvinism.

I read an article earlier today called The Bible Verse That Made Me a Calvinist and it’s sad little story about a man who reads one verse in the book of the Acts of the Apostles and has the stunning revelation that yes, John Calvin was right about everything. So right, in fact, that the author decides, as John MacArthur teaches, that it’s John Calvin and not Paul who is actually the apostle to the Church Age, and it’s Calvin’s doctrine we are to follow. This type of result is typical of shallow study and sloppy exegesis, the antithesis of 2 Timothy 2:15.

“And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.” Acts 13:48 (KJB)

Someone once remarked that ‘a text without a context is a pretext for a proof text’, and that’s pretty much ‘right on the money’ as the Bible is filled with verses that, removed from the safe mooring of their context, yield wildly differing results. In Acts 13:44-52, the context is the hardness of the Jews hearts, and their refusal to believe the gospel. The Bible doesn’t say they can’t believe, it says they refused to believe, and because of their refusal, God turns to a group of people who will believe, the Gentiles. That the Gentiles would one day hear and believe the gospel is an Old Testament prophecy found in places like Isaiah 49:6 and Isaiah 60:3 in your King James Bible.

“Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.” Acts 13:46 (KJB)

Calvinism may teach, and it does, that no one gets saved until God ‘regenerates you’ in order for you to be able to believe, and then you become born again after God ‘flips your switch’. But this is not what your Bible teaches, it says the opposite of that. In Matthew 23:37, Jesus calls out the Jews for refusing to believe Him and His teachings, clearly showing they could believe if they had wanted to. In Acts 28:23-27, our apostle Paul speaks something very similar to what Jesus said in Matthew, again placing all the responsibility for the disbelief of the Jews on themselves, and not on God for not ‘regenerating’ them. Then in verse 28, Paul gives us a key to unlock Acts 13:48 as we see here:

“Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear it.” Acts 28:28 (KJB)

What did God do? He ordained the gospel to go to the Gentiles, just like it did to Cornelius in Acts 10:1-44, He appointed them the opportunity to have the gospel preached to them that some might believe. The Bible is not saying that God ordained and appointed individuals to salvation before they believed the gospel, rather that He was no longer dealing just with Israel. Romans 10:9-17 is quite clear that a person becomes saved when they call upon the name of the Lord and confess Him as Saviour after they’ve had the gospel preached to them. Paul repeats this theme again in Ephesians 1:10-14 where he shows us that a person gets saved after they hear the gospel preached, they believe it, receive it, and then are sealed unto the day of redemption by the Holy Spirit.

Remember Cornelius? The Bible says that he was a ‘just man’ and one that ‘feareth God’, who had a ‘good report’ among all who knew him. But there was something pretty huge that Cornelius did not have, he wasn’t saved. So, God appeared to Peter and ordained him to go and give Cornelius the gospel on an appointed day, and that’s exactly what happened. Peter preached the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ to Cornelius, and the man got saved after he believed what Peter preached. What does Calvinism have to say about any of this? Nothing, because there is not one iota of Calvinism anywhere needed to bring this about. Now let’s wrap this whole thing up, shall we?

Who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved.” Acts 11:14 (KJB)

The Greek word used for ‘ordained’ is tetagmenoi which means ‘to put in order, to station, to place in a certain order, to arrange, to assign a place, to appoint’. This is just what God did when He turned to the Gentiles, as Paul says, and ordains or appoints them the opportunity to hear and believe the gospel. To come to any other conclusion is simply bowing to the filter of Calvinism, and being ‘willing ignorant’ of the abundance of scripture, rightly divided and in context, showing Calvin to be in grievous error. Don’t you make the same mistake.

John MacArthur Led 3,500 Pastors To Believe On John Calvin

This is typical MacArthur garbage. You will notice that Mac doesn’t defend Calvinism from the Bible, which you can’t do, but instead appeals to the “suffering and study” of Calvin as the reason why we should accept the private interpretation of Calvinism.

The Name Of Jesus Is The Name That Is Above All Names, And Did You Know That In Hebrew It’s Joshua Which Means ‘Jehovah Is Salvation’?

Published

on

name-of-jesus-joshua-king-james-bible-jehovah-saves
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Did you know that in Hebrew the Greek name of Jesus is Joshua, and that both those names mean ‘Jehovah is salvation’? But wait, there’s more.

On Twitter earlier, I watched a short video from a foul-mouthed ‘christian’ who ranted on and on about the ‘real name’ of Jesus. I endured to the end, pun intended, in breathless anticipation of finally hearing my Saviour’s ‘real name’. Imagine my disappointment when I got to the end and he revealed it to be….drum roll please…Yeshua. Is that right, is that the actual name of Jesus? Let’s take a look.

“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21 (KJB)

The name of Jesus comes to us in the New Testament Greek with the word iēsous that becomes ‘Jesus’ when translated into English. That’s fairly easy to understand, but let’s go the other way back to the Hebrew. When we do that, iēsous becomes יְהוֹשׁוּעַ which is translated as ‘Joshua’ in English. In both cases and in all 3 languages, the name Jesus means ‘Jehovah is salvation’. Of course, the built-in dictionary in your King James Bible gives further light when we read in verse 23 that “they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” Emmanuel, God is with you. Jesus, God will save you. Going a little further Isaiah says his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Now, what’s the reason for the connection of Jesus with Joshua? Let’s find out.

Joshua is used by God to a high degree, and indeed we see in Joshua many types of the Lord Jesus Christ. Joshua starts as a slave laborer in Egypt, but rises to the level of a conquering, faith-filled military leader who trusts God enough to take the Promised Land. Similarly, Jesus was a man at His First Advent who suffered the humiliation of the cross, but at His Second Advent comes as a conquering King to receive a kingdom. So we see that the name of Joshua is interchangeable with the name Jesus, so much so that in two places in the New Testament, the name of Jesus substituted for the name of Joshua. Why?

  • Which also our fathers that came after brought in with Jesus into the possession of the Gentiles, whom God drave out before the face of our fathers, unto the days of David;” Acts 7:45 (KJB)
  • For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.” Hebrews 4:8 (KJB)

Both these verses are talking about the man Joshua from the Old Testament historically, but the King James translators went with the name of ‘Jesus’ when translating these verse because they are showing you a very valuable prophetical truth. A truth that the translators of the NIV, ESV and even the NKJV decided was not worth bothering with and they translated the passages as ‘Joshua’. Remember we told you that the Greek word iēsous is translated as both the names of Jesus and Joshua? As usual, your King James Bible is giving you insight that has been expunged from the ‘rubber sword’ of the modern versions.

God could have picked any of the Israelites to lead the Jews into the Promised Land, but He chose Joshua and Caleb. Everything about Joshua reminds us of Jesus at His Second Coming, the book of Joshua is a book of warfare. King Jesus comes as a ‘man of war’ to stomp His enemies at the Battle of Armageddon. Like Joshua did in the Old Testament, King Jesus will lead His people from the red rock city of Selah Petra into the Promised Land of Israel for the last time. And as Joshua was just a type in the Old Testament, and could not ultimately give the people rest, King Jesus as the end times Joshua will ‘finish the job’ in a spectacular way. By using the name of ‘Jesus’ in place of ‘Joshua’ in Hebrews and Acts, God used the King James translators to accomplish something none of the modern versions are willing to do, and that’s give you valuable links and cross-references between the names of ‘Jesus’ and ‘Joshua’ regarding the Second Advent.

One more fun fact before I go. In your Bible there are only three people who never lose a battle, care to guess who they might be? David never lost a battle, the Bible says in 1 Samuel 13:14 that he was a man after God’s own heart. The second man who never lost a battle that he personally commanded is Joshua, who in a wild ‘coincidence’ has the exact same name as Jesus. The third Man who never lost a battle, or a soul who called on Him, is Jesus who just happens to have the same name as Joshua. What’s in a name? Plenty, if you have a King James Bible.

The Modern Versions Prevent A Black Man From Getting Saved In Acts 8 While Teaching The Heresy Of Water Baptism For Salvation In The Church Age

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Your King James Bible faithfully preserves doctrinal truth in Acts 8 that the modern versions seek to destroy

If you have a King James Bible, when you read Acts 8 you thrill to see the salvation of the very first Gentile in the Church Age, the Ethiopian Eunuch, and you marvel at the dispensational truth that’s revealed when you’re shown that baptism in now no longer necessary for salvation. But…if you have an NIV, an ESV, or John MacArthur’s terrible new Legacy Standard Bible, those scripture nuggets have either been removed outright, or cast to the phantom zone of the footnotes section. Why? I’ll tell you why.

“And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.” Acts 8:36,37 (KJB)

People who cannot see dispensations in the Bible will try and tell you that salvation is the same from Genesis to Revelation, but that’s a lie. Salvation isn’t even the same from Acts 2 to Acts 8. In Acts 2:38, Peter is preaching to an exclusively Jewish crowd, and telling them, as a nation, to get baptized for the remission of sins. Yet just 6 chapters later, Phillip assures the Ethiopian Eunuch that belief unto salvation comes before baptism. You are watching the rebirth of the Ethiopian Eunuch while at the same time watching God giving birth to a new dispensation that we call the Church Age. This is all so ground breaking and revelatory that Satan then comes along with his modern version magic eraser to wipe it clean where he can, and cast doubt on it everyplace else.

We live in a day and age where race and race relations are super-charged, and everyone is looking for racism in every cartoon bubble, and that can become weary and tiresome. But is it just a coincidence that the modern versions in Acts 8 swoop in like a seagull after popcorn to snatch up the exact moment that the Ethiopian Eunuch, a black man, gets saved? It kind of feels like it to me. So let’s do a simple bullet point demonstration of the damage done here by the modern versions, shall we?

  • THE DISAPPEARING SALVATION: In your King James Bible, you read that the Ethiopian Eunuch wants to know what’s stopping him from being baptized, and Phillip tells him he needs to get saved first, and baptized second. “And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.” The Eunuch gets saved in verse 37, which is then promptly removed by the Laodicean Bible correctors. This is criminal activity perpetrated by Christian criminals who call themselves doctors.
  • THE DISAPPEARING DISPENSATION: By removing verse 37, there is now no dispensational difference between this event in Acts 8 in the Church Age, and the water-based salvation of the Kingdom Age. “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” You are being duped, dumbed down and dumped into that whirling vortex known as the ‘Greek and Hebrew Scholars Union’. This is where true biblical scholarship goes to die, don’t let it kill you. NOTE: If you have an ESV, NIV or any of those other perverted ‘bibles’, we invite you to throw it in the trash, then click here and we will send you a brand new King James Study Bible at zero cost to you.

The Greek and Hebrew scholars love to tear down your faith in the King James Bible so they can replace it with your faith in their scholarship, this is a con game of the highest magnitude. We have dozens of books at the Bookstore that will reveal everything you need to know about Bible versions, and we invite you to purchase some of those books right now.
