A new email friend shared this with me:
“Junkyard is a cautionary story of what will happen to some preachers near the end of the tribulation.” — from the Youtube page about the video clip below.
This is a fictional story about two men who meet each other in an automobile junkyard. The scene is set after a great catastrophic event has taken place during which 2,000,000,000 people have been killed. The implication is strong that this occurred during the Great Tribulation period of most evangelical and charismatic Christians today believe will happen during the last 7 years just before Jesus will return. The Antichrist has been revealed, and Jesus has not returned to take away the Believers before the Great Tribulation!. The man who entered the junkyard learns that the other man living in the junkyard is a famous preacher who was teaching that Jesus will return before the Great Tribulation! He accuses him of lying from the pulpit. Of course the preacher wasn’t intentionally lying, he was merely repeating the lies he learned from other preachers who got them from the Scofield Bible which C.I. Scolfield wrote the footnotes from inspiration of the teaching of John Nelson Darby. And guess who Darby ultimately got his inspiration from? The DEVIL’s people, Jesuit priests!!
The Bible in Matthew 24:29-31 very clearly states that God’s Elect — the true Church — the saved in Jesus Christ, Yeshua Ha-Mashiach, will be gathered together by the Lord’s angels AFTER the Great Tribulation.
Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
When I first posted Junkyard Theology several years ago, I was still a follower of the school of Bible prophecy interpretation known as Futurism. The other two schools of Bible prophecy interpretation are called Preterism and Historicism. You can read about it on this website: Preterism, Futurism, Historicism – 3 Schools of Interpretation of Bible Prophecy.
I came to hold the Historicism view of interpretation of Bible prophecy as the correct one and no longer believe in a final seven year scenario of the Antichrist rule on earth. The Antichrist HAS been ruling since the end of the Roman Empire and the beginning of the Roman Catholic Church through the Popes. It’s now called the “Holy See” which has infiltrated all the major and powerful nations of the earth!
The Church has already gone through centuries of tribulation which continues to this very day! Hundreds if not thousands of Christians in Africa have been killed in recent years. Jesus did not spare them from death. God has not promised to save all His children from death and persecution.
John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
