Franklin Graham's Warning! by Dave MacPherson

     Franklin's warning of coming persecution of Christians echoes what his mother Ruth and father Billy have clearly stated. 
     In a Google article titled "Letter from Mrs. Billy Graham," Ruth stated that "I would rather prepare myself to go through the tribulation and be happily surprised by an unexpected rapture, than expect to be raptured only to find myself going through tribulation."
     Her husband, Billy, had this to say: "Perhaps the Holy Spirit is getting His Church ready for a trial and tribulation such as the world has never known." He stated this on p. 72 in Sam Shoemaker's book "Under New Management," and the same quote is also found in a Google piece entitled "Famous Rapture Watchers - Addendum."
     Since Franklin blamed the Obama administration for his own National Day of Prayer snub and persecution, and since he accused "Christian" Obama of "giving Islam a pass," you can observe the real, uncovered Obama by Googling "Obama Supports Public Depravity," "Obama Avoids Bible Verses," "Separation of Raunch and State," and "The Background Obama Can't Cover Up."
     For more about coming persecution, see two unique books by media figure Joe Ortiz entitled "The End Times Passover" and "Why Christians Will Suffer 'Great Tribulation' " - both published in the US and UK by AuthorHouse.
     The "imminent pretrib rapture" is still found here in America, which is basically an island of ease and comfort (and unreality) surrounded by a worldwide ocean of anti-Christian persecution of true believers. 
     My fully documented book "The Rapture Plot" (available by calling 800.643.4645) focuses on the long-hidden-but-now-uncovered beginnings of the same 184-year-old "any-moment fly-away" doctrine, and I have been amazed at the numbers of leading scholars who've given their stamp of approval to my historical sleuthing - especially scholars in foreign countries where persecution of Christians isn't foreign to them.
     In this regard I think of the late eminent Australian theologian and church historian, Dr. F. Nigel Lee, who had nine (!) earned doctorates and who had this to say about my extensive research here and abroad:      
     "Dave MacPherson, in his various books, has made a major contribution toward vindicating Historic Christian Eschatology. The 1830 innovations of the disturbed Margaret Macdonald documented by MacPherson----in part or in whole----immediately spread to Edward Irving and his followers, then to J. N. Darby and Plymouth Brethrenism, and were later popularized by the dispensationalistic Scofield Reference Bible, by Classic Pentecostalism, and by latter-day pretribulationists like J. F. Walvoord and Hal Lindsey."
     Many evangelicals are still being told that the pretrib rapture view is a 2000-year-old belief, but it was actually dreamed up by 19th century "fringe" Britishers and is actually less than 200 years old!
     Want dessert? Google "Pretrib Rapture Politics," "Pretrib Rapture Secrecy," "Pretrib Rapture Stealth," "Evangelicals Use Occult Deception," "Hal Lindsey's Pretrib Rapture Proof," "Pretrib Rapture Pride," "Margaret Macdonald's Rapture Chart," "Pretrib Rapture's Missing Lines," "The Unoriginal John Darby," "Famous Rapture Watchers," "Grant Jeffrey's Apocalypse Debacle," "The Pretrib Rapture Jackpot!," "The Left Behind Rupture," "Roots of Warlike Christian Zionism," and "Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty." (BTW, if you Google "Joe Ortiz Associates" you can find many of my web articles on his outstanding blogs.)
     Now you have really been warned!

Dave MacPherson. What People are saying

What They Are Saying About ... THE RAPTURE PLOT!

Gary DeMar (President American Vision): "A majority of prophecy writers and speakers teach that the church will be raptured before a future tribulational period. But did you know that prior to about 1830 no such doctrine existed. No one in all of church history ever taught pretribulational rapture. Dave MacPherson does the work of a journalistic private investigator to uncover the truth....The Rapture Plot is the never-before-told true story of the plot - how plagiarism and subtle document changes created the 'mother of all revisionisms.' A fascinating piece of detective work." Robert H. Gundry (Professor Westmont College): "As usual MacPherson out hustles his opponents in research on primary sources. C. S. Lovett (President Personal Christianity): You don't read very much of Dave MacPherson's work before you realize he is a dedicated researcher. Because his work has been so honest and open his latest work The Rapture Plot has produced many red faces among some of the most recognized rapture writers of our time. When their work is compared to his it is embarrassing for them to see how shallow their research is." R. J. Rushdoony (President Chalcedon): "Dave MacPherson has been responsible for major change in the eschatology of evangelical churches by his devastating studies of some of the central aspects thereof. In The Rapture Plot MacPherson tells us of the strange tale of 'rapture' writings, revisions, cover-ups, alterations and confusions. No one has equaled MacPherson in his research on the 'pretrib rapture.' Attempts to discredit his work have failed...."
