Replacement theology teach that the antichrist first will be revealed after the Church is raptured. This is a doctrine taught by an anti-Messiah, a replacement.
People who preach that it is impossible to identify the anti-Christ, do serve the interests of anti-Christ. Just like all who say there is no Satan today, do serve Satan.
The anti-Christ was identified by all the Church reformers during the Reformation. Both Martin Luther and John Calvin agreed that the Pope of Rome was an antichrist. The Apostolic Baptists had claimed this for more than 1100 years. Since the days Rome banished Judaism, and made it an criminal act to be a proselyte and grafted into the Jewish faith.
Be aware that true Evangelical Friends of Israel have always been called a “grafted” “olive three”. A witness among the Jewish people in Jerusalem.
And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree.
The Jesuits motives for launching the pre-trib doctrine into the Church, was to blur the true understanding of what an anti-Christ is. It is not a person who is deadly against Christianity, a secular worldly ruler. An anti-Christ is very much a claimed follower of the Messiah, But he is following a copycat, who has succeeded in replacing the true Messiah.
The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: ‘I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.
One of the consequence of the pre-trib doctrine, is a claim that it is God’s intention to separate the “Church” and “Israel”. The love for Israel is not supposed to be everlasting, as the Word of God proclaim. We are told that the Church and Israel is not supposed to stand in unity, and that their destiny is totally different. The new covenant is not for the House of Jacob. Not for the tribe of Judah.
“Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.
The second consequence of the pre-trib doctrine, is a rejection of the purpose of the gathering of Jews home to Israel. 1948 is not related to the salvation of the Jewish people, but rather about a massive rejection in the near future. God do desire to gathered them “home” to punish them in one place.
The rebirth of Israel seems not to be a sign of the mercy and grace of the Messiah. The Jews are gathered home to Israel to be left behind, to face the antichrist that the Church is unable to identify. Strangely enough. Since the gospel writers were able to acknowledge that a lot of antichrists already had gone into the world. and proclaimed a different gospel.
Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.
This kind of Replacement Ideology also reject what took place with Ruth, and all the proselytes gathered on the day of Pentecost. Not only Jews from all over the World were gathered to face salvation. Like Ruth, the proselytes had promised to make the Jewish People their people, and God of Israel their God. This is exactly what true Evangelical Friends of Israel have done.
And Ruth said, Urge me not to leave you or to turn back from following you; for where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people and your God my God.
Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and the transient residents from Rome, both Jews and the proselytes [to Judaism from other religions].
All who stand united with Israel proclaim the faithfulness of God of Israel. When the full number of gentile proselytes have come into the Kingdom, the whole of Israel shall be saved. Today we see that apostasy and lukewarmness spreads like wildfires among the gentiles. But the heart and mind of the Jewish people is turning towards their Messiah. Just like the prophets have foretold.
There will eventually be a rapture. Of the true Church who has refused to take the mark of the beats, and refused to bow down to the antichrists. The true Church have always been persecuted. The anti-Christian pogroms did not only attack and massacred the Jews. In their millions, through the ages, the true witnesses for Jesus the Messiah have been martyred and promoted to the Kingdom of Heaven. No pre-trib rapture was needed for all who were enabled to testify about the Messiah, to the point of martyrdom. They all were able to identify the anti-Christs, and reject them.
Love Jesus the Messiah enough to reject the false Replacement theology, and to stay united with Israel and the Jewish people.
