Prophecy Update- The Road to World Tyranny
I can’t wait for new episodes! I love the guest speakers too! Such wonderful, insightful teaching that you won’t hear in most churches. (They are too busy putting on rock concerts and Ted Talks.)
Quack fringe nut job
Important, but slightly flawed show
This show is very important for the Church to hear since almost all episodes touch on things we need to know. Many of the guests speak on things that almost no one else in the Church is discussing. Of course, in the U.S., I suspect that most church goers aren’t true believers, so I shouldn’t be surprised if these issues aren’t often discussed. Concerning what I think the show lacks, and needs to be improved, is given below. The episode on May 3, 2021, with Billy Crone, is a good example of the flaw in this show: The hosts and guests sometimes don’t think critically enough, either about their own claims or the claims of others. I’ll mention an episode that I recently listened to since the problem is fresh in my mind. I’ve heard things on other topics (in other episodes) that are also flawed. In the episode above, the host and guest go about to claim that the pre-trib rapture theory is the correct position. The host mentions “the last trump” of Paul. This “last trump” is said by others to be the seventh trumpet of Revelation. The guest is then asked to discuss the problem with this position, but the guest never does. He skirts around the issue and somehow he and the host convince themselves that the issue has been addressed (though it hasn’t). The guest should have immediately pointed out what “last trump” means, but he never does. Still, somehow, he and the host think they’ve demonstrated their position to be true. This is very bad for a prophecy show that aims to educate the Church on important issues. The host and guest don’t even seem to understand the mid- and post-trib positions. If they do, then why would they avoid arguing against those positions? For example, the guest, when he was skirting around the issue of the last trumpet (rather than actually addressing the issue), claimed that since the Church is not appointed to wrath, the “last trump” couldn’t possibly be the last trumpet of revelation. This is actually an illogical argument since the issue is not wrath but what the last trumpet is. Nevertheless, if the two knew the other positions on the rapture, then they would know that I Thess. 5 says that the Day of the Lord comes as a thief in the night ONLY upon the unbelievers, and NOT upon the believers. In fact, the whole chapter implies that believers are still there when the Day of the Lord comes. That’s why Paul admonishes the believers to be sober and vigilant, and not slumber as the unbelievers do. The guest and host should know this, and argue against it. The guest and host ignore this issue as if it were irrelevant. Later in the show, the guest claims that since Daniel was writing “to the Jewish people” before the Church even existed, and the subject is “the time of Jacob’s trouble,” he then says (as though this implies that) “the Church isn’t even going to be around.” This is absurd. That’s the same as saying that since the Old Testament prophets spoke of the messianic kingdom and the future eternity with God before the Church existed, therefor the Church won’t be there in the messianic kingdom and in eternity. He implies, later, that since they didn’t know about the Church, therefor, nothing they wrote about applies to the Church or that they won’t be around. He’s picking and choosing what he wants to be the case. That’s the sort of faulty thinking that often occurs. He also makes an illogical argument when he claims that putting the Church in the great tribulation takes the focus off of Israel; this is nonsense. Revelation clearly distinguishes, several times, between the Church and the tribes of Israel. Since God himself places both groups in his great prophetic book, then for a mid- or post-tribber to do the same is not “replacement theology” (whether his timing of the rapture is correct is irrelevant here). The host and guest’s arguments are mostly emotional and based on arbitrary evidence. This is very sloppy for a prophecy podcast. Hopefully, too, you can see that I haven’t taken a position on this timing. You should be able to see that it is irrelevant to my review here. Another evidence that the guest and host don’t seem to understand non-pre-trib positions is that they claim that an argument against pre-trib is that “the word rapture is not in the Bible.” Well, that would be an argument claiming that the rapture doesn’t even occur, but the issue is not whether the rapture even occurs, but WHEN it occurs. He admonishes us to follow the logic, but he doesn’t even follow his own. He references I Thess. 4 as if to imply that the passage tells us the timing of the rapture, but it doesn’t. He tells us we need to do our homework, but he hasn’t even done his own. Also, in the above comments, my point is that in many of the episodes, while the show does discuss many important issues facing the Church and humanity, the show doesn’t critically examine the claims of the guests nor the hosts’ own positions so as to counter counter-arguments from anyone who might have a problem with what is being said. They may say that they don’t know everything, but when you never answer known counter arguments as though you are either ignorant of them or you just don’t care to, it makes your show’s intentions questionable. Are they really trying to get to the bottom of things, or are they just airing their opinions? It’s a great show; I just think they often appear ignorant of the problems in their own thinking and in the presentation of the issues. Many of their guest say things that are never questioned, but should be questioned - if only to make sure everyone understands what’s being claimed, let alone whether it’s the correct interpretation of things. If they truly understand the issues, then they should be critical of themselves and their guests’ claims. This is a prophecy show. And since there’s a great deception coming, the show should be more careful when making arguments.
