Below is an article recently written by Treena Gisborn. I am in complete agreement with her article. I have in my 40+ years ever seen a man like Jacob Prasch who peddles inconsistency and confusion as it relates to eschatology as well as many other subjects. He even contradicts his own teaching found in his book Harpazo and other various videos on the this subject. He consistently moves the goal post to suite his own needs, what ever they may be!
FIRST SEAL?-10 Toes of Daniel 2-JP @ VOTV
Above: Jacob Prasch’s glaring error and misrepresentation of the scriptures regarding the first seal of Revelation. Prasch has obviously found some more naïve Christians to bamboozle with his pseudo biblical nonsense.
Prasch: “The faithful Christians will know who the Antichrist is. They will know. They will understand Daniel chapter 2, Daniel chapter 7, Daniel chapter 8, Daniel chapter 11. The faithful believers are to know, but they will not know until the appropriate time. Second Thessalonians chapter 2 tells us clearly and directly, that the episunagógé, our gathering together to be with Christ, that is the resurrection, the anastasia and the rapture, the harpazo, happening together at the revelation of the Lord, the parousia, this is called the episunagógé, our gathering around him. It will not happen until the anthropon anomias, the man of lawlessness is revealed. That’s the first seal, that’s what’s broken. (19:00 mark)
Voice of the Voiceless/The Fellowship of Servants should not be impressed or intimidated by Prasch’s overuse of Greek technical terms for the rapture. Prasch’s excessive use of the Greek and the Hebrew language ceased to impress many of us a long time ago.
Actually the Greek for the man of lawlessness is ὁ ἄνθρωπος τῆς ἁμαρτίας.
The parousia (second coming) is not a single isolated event that relates only to the rapture. The parousia begins with the rapture.
Prasch’s claim that that the man of lawlessness is revealed when the first seal in the book of Revelation is broken is incorrect!
The man of lawlessness will not be revealed until the restrainer is taken out of the way. (2 Thessalonians 2:7-8
). (The restrainer is widely held to be the Archangel Michael by the prewrath camp.) After the restrainer is taken out of the way at the halfway point of the 70th week of Daniel, the Antichrist will openly declare himself to be God. The scriptures are clear that this incident, also known as the abomination of desolation,
unmistakable event that reveals the Antichrist.
Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered together to him, we ask you, brothers, not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by a spirit or a spoken word, or a letter seeming to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God. (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4).
So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination of desolation,’ described by the prophet Daniel (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Matthew 24:15-16).
And he will confirm a covenant with many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of the temple will come the abomination that causes desolation, until the decreed destruction is poured out upon him.” (Daniel 9:27).
When the first seal is broken we see the appearance of the Antichrist on a white horse. However, he is not yet “revealed”.
). Revelation 6 progresses through the second seal (war), the third seal (famine), the fourth seal (death). (Revelation 6:3-8
). The beginning of the great tribulation will coincide with the abomination of desolation at the mid point of the seventieth week when the fifth seal is opened. (Revelation 6:9-11
cf. Matthew 24:9
Prasch: “Jesus will reveal the Antichrist when the time comes.. the proper food at the proper time.. We are only shown at the right time… just as he revealed who the betrayer was to the disciples.”
). Jesus has already
warned us how and when the Antichrist will be revealed. Those who know the scriptures will know without a doubt who the Antichrist is without him being mysteriously “revealed”
by Jesus in some other way.
What exactly are Jacob Prasch’s motives in misrepresenting the book of Revelation? These tactics of confusion can only harm the body of Christ as we enter the most difficult time of history!
I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book. (Revelation 22:18-19 cf. Proverbs 30:6).
