“They Call Themselves Apostles,” by PJ Hanley is now available on Amazon.
Preterism is the view that all of the prophecies concerning the end of the age occurred in 70AD and there is no End-Time events on the horizon. Everything in the world is getting better until it is all Christianized. This view of Scripture was compiled by a Jesuit Priest (Jesuit Luis de Alcazar 1614) during the Counter Reformation, to combat the claims of the Protestants who believed the Pope was the Antichrist. It is being made popular today, particularly in the Revival Movement, by people like Jonathon Welton and many others. However, it’s a very bizarre twisting of Scripture, that undermines the authority of the Bible, and sets believers up for serious deception. Yet, one does not have to be a scholar to see how foolish it is. In this article I have listed 12 reasons it cannot be true. I could have listed hundreds, but there is no need. Just one of these points shows that it is seriously flawed. Read More

The election of Donald J Trump as President of the United States is a political earthquake, greater than Brexit, that is sending shockwaves throughout the world. Liberals freaking out, colleges having crying sessions, and young fascists shouting violence in the streets, underscore the great victory for freedom that has been wrought. The American people have decided who will represent them in Washington and the world condemns us again. Read More

An article just appeared in Charisma titled, “Why Christians Should Stop Looking for the Rapture.” It was written by JD King of the World Revival Network. Of course, I recognized this article immediately as having appeared in Charisma last spring. It was hard to forget since it so incensed me the first time. However, the average reader is unaware that Charisma regurgitates these articles over and over again to push their agenda. Some may say that they publish all different points of view, and of course they do, since they thrive on promoting confusion. But if they are really balanced, where is the rebuttal? Where is the scholarly article written to support the rapture? Read More

The latest Brexit referendum and the failed coup and subsequent “cleansing” in Turkey, have given the Muslim Caliphate Theory of Joel Richardson new legs with many. However, there is no real reason for this. So far Brexit is just a vote and even if it is actually carried out it does not mean the end of the EU. Furthermore, Turkey’s cleansing of more than 50,000 people, that is still going on, only indicates that it is unstable and could go either way. If it were to become a radical Muslim state aligned with Russia, it would still likely be temporary. As a Sunni state it would have to fight Iran and Iraq, as well as all the other Shia forces in the Middle-East, and convince the Saudis to join, to become a caliphate. This is very unlikely and Turkey could indeed become part of the EU as well as play a vital role in the Middle-East conflicts to come. The following are 7 reasons why I believe the beast of Daniel (2&7) and Revelation (13 & 17) will not be fulfilled by an Islamic Caliphate!

Last week the British voted to leave the EU. Shockwaves went around the world as markets fell and fear gripped millions of people regarding their financial and political future. Others celebrated independence and sovereignty and the destruction of the New World Order. Talking heads on TV rattled on about the collapse of the EU and Globalism and the rise of a new era of “Populism” and “Trumpism.” And of course, the Preterists and Dominionists chimed in with condemnation and mockery of “doom and gloom” preaching, using the opportunity to authenticate their rosy view of a world getting better and better. But even more astonishingly, some of those who believe the EU has fulfilled Bible Prophecy were wobbling and buckling under the pressure and trying to come up with new alternatives. Read More

The church is called to be a Bride made ready for the Bridegroom. Her passion and pursuit is to be of Him and His presence. Bringing others to Him should be her commitment and dedication but not her preoccupation. Love for Him is to consume her as she eagerly awaits His return. Her hope is not in her ability to change the earth but on His promise to come back for her. This is the true apostolic teaching – the true apostolic emphasis (Consider Paul’s concern for the Corinthians in 2Cor 11:2-3). Today however, many are rising up within the church calling themselves apostles and leading believers astray. Whole movements and networks are embracing a man centered agenda of social transformation and calling it the kingdom. Others are embracing the age old heresies regurgitated and photo shopped for the 21st Century. The Scriptures clearly warned us that this would happen, Read More
For the past twenty years or so a new movement has been sweeping the church. It comes to us in many trendy packages and teachings designed to convince us that social transformation is the mission of the church. And sadly many are falling into its deception, especially the so called “millennials,” who want to be radical in their generation but lack the background and teaching to discern delusion. Some of the common themes associated with this movement are; “Kingdom Now,” “Taking the Seven Mountains for God,” “Dominion Theology,” “World Revival,” and of course “Transforming Culture.” Its leaders are big shot celebrities who live in a sort of Christian conference bubble that convinces them everything is getting better. Indeed, the predictions and decrees issued at these “apostolic centers” would suggest this transformation of the planet is well underway. Consider the following:
“The world is on the verge of massive change, and even though it looks very dark in some ways, God has a plan! We are in the birth pangs of a new world. 2012 is the year of shifting governments, as the church rises to take her place on the world stage, bringing the kingdom of heaven to earth.” (1)
