The Last Days of The Church Age?
AN OPEN LETTER TO INTERESTED CHRISTIANS
originally written in 1994; amended 1999, 2000, 2002, 2009
He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.
We often run across the names of people that we hopefully surmise will have an interest in what we believe to be the most timely and crucial message for Christians in this age. You are one of these people that we are hopefully writing to. As you must know, there is a general consensus among popular prophetic expositors that we are at the end of this age.
I would like to bring to your attention that almost all of the past respected commentators and scholars (see, for example, the older editions of the Scofield Bible, notes on Matthew, chapter 13) have agreed that the last days of Christendom are characterized by a Great and Final Apostasy.
It is also quite noticeable to me, and to anyone who cares to look, that since World War 2, there has been a concerted attempt to ignore, forget, and explain away this fact (see, for example, the New Scofield Bible, notes on Matthew, chapter 13). This, I take to be a sign that this predicted apostasy is well underway, since it can be expected that those who are guilty would want to deny their complicity. Therefore, most of, if not all of the currently popular trends in Christendom ought to be carefully scrutinized, since they may well be nothing more than manifestations of this Apostasy.
We communicate with many people who suspect that something has gone terribly awry in Christendom, but they don’t know how the Bible describes this particular and prophesied Apostasy, and so, they are left with little more than the vague notion that “the bad stuff is here”. Neither have they any idea that WE (that’s you and me, dear Reader) have all, already, been tainted by this Apostasy (we are offering you proof of this bold assertion). It therefore behooves us all to reconsider our profession in the light of our Bible, and to repent of our own complicity in the matter. We are strongly exhorted by Jude to “earnestly contend for the faith once delivered unto the saints”, which for us means that we must return to embracing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the same passionate simplicity that we realized at the moment of our awakening to faith; if indeed, we were ever truly converted in the first place. We believe in childhood and even infant conversions. Please let me remind you of what Paul, an apostle of our Lord, says about these days, wherein many SAY that we are to be expecting the soon return of Our Lord Jesus Christ:
2 Thess. 2:3 – Let no man deceive you by any means for that day (the day of Christ) shall not come, except there come a falling away (APOSTASIA – Grk.) FIRST, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.
We would like to bring to your attention that most of the “popular” prophecy teachers are NOT bringing this scripture up anymore! (as of 2009, there is regular mention of apostasy or THE Apostasy – but still almost always in the general sense, in which said apostates are mostly verbally chastised for NOT DOING ENOUGH OF SOMETHING. We DO NOT believe that this kind of speech does anything to expose the true nature of this predicted apostasy)
Even though almost all of the past respected commentators, both Protestant and even the Catholic, agreed that the end of this age would find Christendom rife with false prophets, false doctrines and false brethren; most of you have not heard this preached at all in the past 20 years! (written in 1994)
It is also necessary for you to realize that the perversion of “the faith once delivered unto the saints” cannot be a reference to the New Agers (who never yielded any allegiance to an historic Gospel), nor can it be a reference to the profusion of weird quasi-Christian Cults, for they have always been with us.
No, the predicted falling away is an apostasy from the faith by the majority of those who did and still do profess an allegiance to historic Christianity. It is clearly predicted in the Bible that at the end of this age, Christendom would NOT be in the midst of a great revival (as many are still saying), but rather, would be Apostate. Therefore, it is necessary to know how the Bible describes this Apostasy.
What does the Bible say that the “doctrines of devils” will be?
How does the Bible describe the false brethren that we need to beware of?
Who, and where, are those false Christ’s that we are told will ALMOST deceive even the very elect?
What EXACTLY, is the mystery of iniquity?
What is the most prominent and pervasive feature of This Apostasy?
It seems to me that any prophecy teacher who takes himself, his audience, and his Bible seriously, would consider it a momentous and crucial ministry to bring up what is, in fact, the most described sign of The End Of This Age in the New Testament!
Do you have an interest in learning the answers to these timely and pertinent questions?
Late in 1990, our Lord prompted a dear brother to write a book about this very subject. His commission: to announce, describe, and denounce, The Great And Final Apostasy Of Christendom. This book has been written, and is entitled THE GREAT DREAM.
THE GREAT DREAM is an academically sound exposition on EVERY New Testament prophecy that describes or pertains to the last days of Christendom.
While many may regard the contents of THE GREAT DREAM as shocking and inflammatory, they cannot, and will not find in it even one word or phrase that is not 100% consistent with The Apostles Creed and historic orthodoxy. No particular denomination is either targeted or defended. The author does not attempt to smother you with doubtful statistics that you cannot easily verify, and neither does he weary the mind with a host of unsupported assertions and arcane quotations that challenge or insult your level of education. There is, in THE GREAT DREAM, very little reference to anything except the Bible and what we all come into contact with every day. You will find the simplicity of this text very refreshing.
THE GREAT DREAM clearly presents the contrast between the policies and practices of modern Christendom, and the teachings of Jesus Christ and His apostles: the faith once delivered unto the saints!
We would like to offer you the opportunity to read part or all of this book, and to invite your criticism and suggestions concerning the content. The author knows he is not writing the next book of The Bible, and welcomes all such counsel. THE GREAT DREAM has now been published (as of 1999) and is already distributed worldwide in English paperback, but we are ready to make amendments to the online text still and before any future printing (July 2009 – another printing is doubtful – maybe unecessary, and maybe not even right. THE GREAT DREAM is now translated into both Dutch and Spanish and is available to read online for free in 3 languages. There are about 100 new copies of THE GREAT DREAM in English left in Texas, England and Africa, and there are less than 100 copies of THE GREAT DREAM paperback in Dutch available from Holland). Used copies of THE GREAT DREAM remain available from www.amazon.com
And remember, you may convince us that something in THE GREAT DREAM is plainly errant and ought to be apologized for, modified or deleted). We welcome all serious criticism. You may also read THE GREAT DREAM in English, Dutch or Spanish on-line at the web-sites listed at the bottom of this page. There are no requests for money on our websites.
A word about who WE are. We are several+ adults and children living in Christian fellowship who have found friends to our cause throughout the world. We are not a “cult”, and there is nothing surpisingly immoral, illegal, or unorthodox going on here. We are still not perfect in our behaviors. We don’t like having to keep secrets, and we invite your questions about our past or our present lifestyle.
We have only one PRIMARY abiding interest in this world: to see the faith of Our Lord Jesus Christ vindicated in our own lives. We have concluded that religion is not the most important thing; it is the ONLY important thing! The day is coming when everyone in the world will realize that this has always been true.
We are always looking for new friends in the faith with whom we can have true fellowship: the kind of fellowship that we see described for us in the Gospel, where our brothers and sisters and mothers and friends, are those whose only ambition in this life is to do the will of God and walk in the fulfillment of all that the Gospel of Jesus Christ offers us:TO ESCAPE from the power, practice, and penalty of sin; TO ESCAPE from the corruption of this world; TO ESCAPEfrom all that is coming upon the world; and to be accounted worthy TO ESCAPE all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
Luke 21:36 KJV) Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
Some of you are Pastors or otherwise engaged in the ministry of the Gospel. I remind you of James’ warning that teachers will realize a stricter judgment. Let me add, concerning this Apostasy: if you don’t see it, then you are either being temporarily deceived by it, or you are a willing part of it.
Hope to hear from you soon.
