I not impressed with his teaching that God is going to destroy the entire universe, what he calls "the atomic annihilation of the universe." Sorry but he's wrong!I like John Barnett a lot. He is one of the very few teachers I watch on "youtube", but I do not agree with everything he says, but almost! I wish he would have answered the question if someone could be "born again" from birth, which I do not believe.
That's right, but man will....and WOW! Does he ever!God will not act contrary to His Word.
What does God's Word say will be happening. Not what we feel is fair or not.
1. God will accidentally kill innocent people when he raptures His elect.@saginon -- the part of your comment about those "people believe and teach such preposterous absurdities" and "that so many people believe it" --- maybe you could expound a bit on that in the three subject areas you listed.
At first I was agree with your comments -- but then I was rereading all of it. So -- what exactly Are you saying regarding those three areas.
If you want to believe that when Jesus returns he's reckless and kills people in the aftermath of removing believers, have at it!I've already had several discussions on various topics with other posters. You've said that you know me from other Forums and that I won't back down. Well -- on important subjects -- you're right. God's Word IS God's Word.
Mankind / us/ are the one's who tend to Be sloppy and reckless. And AGAIN -- 'in the twinkling of an eye' DOES mean 'all at once'. WE simply need to be Ready --- maybe the reason that some folk Want it to be 'slow' is so that as 'we' actually see it happening -- 'we' will be able to change our mind and accept Jesus Christ as our own Savior. so that while the process Is taking place, 'we' can be with them After all.
The book of Revelation says what it says. An abomination is something that God hates. That which God Does hate is homosexuality. And He probably also hates / strongly dislikes the influence that satan has on people's minds / hearts.
You used the term 'hermeneutic' maybe you should look up the term. I just did. It deals with the method of interpreting God's Word as a whole. The term 'heavens' does mean the various stages above the earths' atmosphere. 1st stage of heaven is right above us, second is up farther and Bible even mentions the 3rd heaven. And the 'earth' is just plain old earth where 'we' live.
Well -- God Hasn't destroyed His own creation -- Sin has. And all because of that bit of the fruit of the knowledge of both good and evil that God specifically told Eve Not to even Touch. So -- we have ourselves to blame.
God Did destroy His creation by the world-wide flood -- He Did save some of every kind of animal and Noah and his family because they were the only righteous people left here. And He Also promised to never Do that again.
God has Also provided the One and Only Savior for us. Jesus Christ. The blood of the cross of Christ. And His bodily resurrection from the dead. So -- we 'now' have a Risen Savior.
What is your knowledge of the 'average' Christian based on. Atheists are simply people who don't accept the existence of the God who's put everything 'here'. They do not recognize that their brains are from God.
Well -- hate to tell you -- but Creation says that the dinosour was created at the same time as all the rest of the land animals. No other way they could have gotten 'here'.
I love the --well-- part, as though it's legit that God would be reckless and kill unbelievers.Gods' Word tells us that those who've accepted Jesus Christ as person Savior Will Be taken up when Jesus Christ comes In the Air -- that trumpet sound Will take place. That being called the Rapture of the Church / Bride of Christ.
Those who are left behind -- well -- God will not have killed Anyone. 'we' / ourselves / are pretty good at causing our Own havoc and killing each other. 'we' are committing mass shootings, 'we' are murdering thousands of babies via abortions. ''we' kill each other every day. Are our prisons and jail over-crowded because we're such nice people towards each other?!
You Are aware of the gang violence in this country , right?!
God has already provided His answer for Our human mess -- the cross of Christ / His shed blood.
Thank you for your permission to 'have at it'.
Why would God kill ppl with the rapture? After the rapture there's revival, according to the dream of Ken Peters and the ones that noone could count in Revelations. Whole cities got saved.I love the --well-- part, as though it's legit that God would be reckless and kill unbelievers.
Mass shootings are committed by mass shooters. The act of abortion kills babies. Prisons are full of criminals. Gang violence is cause by gangs. They are all EVIL acts.
If God commits an evil act and kills people in the process of a rapture it's God that's responsible, not us. I would want nothing to do with a reckless God like that who says He loves believer and unbeliever alike.
You seem to be happy that God would kill people.
So what you're saying is people will turn to God because He killed people in the aftermath of a rapture? You'll never convince me of that! God will NOT accidentally kill anybody when he raptures people at the 7th Trump -TOWARD THE END OF TRIBULATION.Why would God kill ppl with the rapture? After the rapture there's revival, according to the dream of Ken Peters and the ones that noone could count in Revelations. Whole cities got saved.
Then after that, when they kill the christians and keep rejecting Him, the plagues come.
No I'm saying that He won't kill people with the pretrib rapture. It doesn't matter to me if someone believes pre, post or midtrib and if there is no pretrib, no problem. There are even ppl who say there are 3 or 5 raptures.So what you're saying is people will turn to God because He killed people in the aftermath of a rapture? You'll never convince me of that!

There's no need for prophets today, and I don't accept people like Ken Peters as prophets. Prophets are no longer necessary and anybody who claims to be one is a false prophet. (That's for another thread.)
We all endure the tribulation. There's not one verse that says we are exempt from it. However, plenty of pre-tribbers have fabricated some!
Pre-trib has a host of issues. One of them being that when it DOESN'T happen and believers are still here, it will mislead them to believe we are not in tribulation and the anti-Christ is not yet revealed. Tribulation will help purify the church and strengthen believers - as well as bring many to Christ.No I'm saying that He won't kill people with the pretrib rapture.

Ken Peters doesnt believe pretrib. He only saw the dead rise. He got a dream through which he got saved and he doesn't share it anymore, because ppl don't believe it or get mad.
I believe the trib will purify the believers who weren't purified already and get Israel saved and those from the world who want to. It's called the day of Jacob's trouble. Jacob is Israel before he wrestled with God and changed.Pre-trib has a host of issues.
