Earlier this year, arising from the 2015 release of the video documentary "Left Behind or Led Astray" which chronicled the history and origin of the Pretribulational Rapture Teaching; Pretrib Research Centre Director Dr Thomas Ice, on the Berean Call radio show, on the basis of his own interpretation of 2 Thess. 2:3, publicly challenged Pastor Joe Schimmel for the $10,000 offered in the documentary to anyone who could find a biblical text clearly supporting a pretribulational timing for the Rapture event. This challenge initiated an informal debate between pastor Joe Schimmel of Blessed Hope Chapel and himself concerning the subject of Dr Ice's contention that the apostasia in 2 Thess. 2:3 refers not to a departure from the faith, but a spatial departure into Heaven, namely the Rapture.

You have to read Olivier Melnick's excellent article at the Times of Israel, taking an open-eyed look at the upcoming Christ at the Checkpoint conference.

Here's his conclusion:

So forgive me for not getting too hopeful about the fourth iteration of “Christ at the Checkpoint.”  I think that it is progressively getting worse. How can we possibly speak of Christian love, justice and reconciliation with such a line-up of hypocrites at best and antisemites at worst?

by Corrie Ten Boom

NOTE:  Miss Corrie Ten Boom was a Dutch survivor of the Nazi Concentration Camps, and a lifelong missionary. Corrie was a believer in facing tribulation. She was one of the many people who
were persecuted in concentration camps during World War II. Her family was murdered before her eyes, but though her life was threatened, God led her through that terrible time. Here is her exhortation to us from a letter she wrote in 1974:

A Reply to Al Dagger from Jacob

Blessings in Jesus.

I consider this to be a fair & accurate assessment by Brother Al and it is fairly comprehensive.

I would personally have no objections if Al wishes to print or web post it in the public domain inclusive of his critical observations of myself in certain specified regards, with which many would likely agree.

Prayer Requests

Please pray for Donna as she has not been able to shake her strep throat and flu can't seem to get well.
Please pray for Jeanna Rose one of our young children in the Philippines. She has a heart condition and surgery has been advised by her doctors but her unsaved father is concerned she may die. Please pray God will either open his heart to do what is right and to also do what is right for Jenna Rose.

“Holy Ghost Reborn” (Movie)

Reviewed by Sandy Simpson


I am sorry to say this but Bethel is clearly a cult of Christianity holding to most of the teachings of the Latter Rain and Word of Faith. They have demonstrated repeatedly a manipulative atmosphere targeting young people in particular while preaching rank heresy. This new film is a continuation of those false teachings and practices. I pray for the young people in that church that they will come to know Jesus Christ as their Savior and thus come to know the true Holy Spirit.

To our Brethren in Jesus,

It is appropriate for me to commence by earnestly thanking you all for your much valued and appreciated prayers and support during the last year. This has been particularly true in light of my own health struggles with lympho-edema and the infectious cellulites in my lower limbs that easily cause recurrence. I have spent three stretches hospitalized in the UK & USA totaling nearly seven weeks since September when I very nearly went home to glory because of bilateral kidney and hepatic failure due to cellulite infection. I have since that time been hospitalized twice and had surgery in California plus a series of subcutaneous tissue ingrates above my ankle. My lower legs remain in compression castings and I undergo self administered lymphatic pump treatments daily plus, for the moment, a cocktail if medication. I frequently require crutches to be mobile.  The susceptibility to cellulite reinfection is high and the ramifications for my neck injury and restrictions on the hydro therapy I used to reduce reliance on anti-inflammatory agents is problematic. The anti inflammatory drugs, without which I experience extremely painful brachio-plexis and partial paralysis in my left arm, are contra-indicated for other medications I am required to take. Yet The Lord has allowed this.

Correction and Apologetic Regrets

Some months ago an incorrect statement was made by Jacob Prasch on the April 2015 Prophecy Update on Moriel's Facebook page.

Following an itinerary in the UK by Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum, whose ministry Ariel, Moriel & Jacob Prasch strongly endorse, the phraseology used by Arnold on one of his teachings led to a misunderstanding among several people; that Arnold altered his position on the timing of the rapture. This however was not the case and what was reported by us was a mistake for which we expressed our apologetic regrets both to Arnold and to our readers.

A Welcome Yes to Thomas Ice

Blessings Thomas.

We have been notified on Social Media by a Calvary Chapel Pastor, whom I frankly had never heard of, named Joseph Bell in Indiana that you have challenged me to a debate regarding the rapture.

Thomas, while I would have appreciated a direct debate invitation either from you or from your Pre-Trib Research Center instead of one relayed second hand by Mr. Bell, I am frankly delighted to accept. I am cordially willing as a fellow Pre-Millennial believer in the Rapture to accept this invitation via Mr. Bell to debate you in a video live streamed debate at a neutral venue regarding your contention that the 'Great Apostasy' is the rapture in support of your Pre-Tribulational timing position with which I respectfully disagree. Our dichotomy, of course, is the timing of the rapture; not its solid reality.
