Johnny Enlow, Ian Clayton, and Jonathan Welton

Here is a quote from Johnny Enlow.

“We have entered an age when aging will be reversed.  There is now a glory invading the atmosphere that carries a new grace of longevity.  It will become common for God’s kids to carry on in strength while 100 years old.  Then it will extend beyond that.  I see this new descending glory as a cloud touching our atmosphere.  It is necessary to live “tall” enough to touch this glory.  This is not about being holy enough but about carrying the right narrative of this age of restoration of all things.  Those who will carry the glory of this His story will begin to see this shift in their own bodies.  This is not going to be able to be accessed if you are in “I’ll fly away” mode.  If your mind is in escape mode your body will follow.  Rather this will be a progressive reality for those willing to contend for the goodness of God in the land of the living.”

Here is a quote from Ian Clayton.

“We have had three kings that have come out of the east gate that have been walking around the earth, weighing the hearts of the sons of men to see whether there is enough on the earth for the Father to bring a release on the earth of what His desire has been from the beginning.  They came out of the east gate beyond the land of Shur.  The east gate is a trans-dimensional gate to a different realm where magi came from.  The magi didn’t come from the earth and there weren’t three of them.  There were more than three.  The church has framed it as three so you’d believe the lie, and they called them wise men so you don’t understand they were actually magi.  Magi means one who is really freaky who does magic things that the natural world doesn’t understand.  Like moving on animals and things and creatures and air, but not on camels.  Following a star that came out of creation moving into this dimension, they followed it out.  The magi were some of the sons of the first creation.”

Here is a quote from Jonathan Welton.

“The destruction of Jerusalem, the Temple and the priesthood is a major part of understanding the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To not understand the significance of the 70AD destruction is to miss a major component of the redemption story. The destruction of Jerusalem is akin to the virgin birth, the cross or the resurrection. I know that is a huge statement, and even though many Christians have not been taught about this event, it is still an essential component.”

The quote from Enlow is an example of how far the” partial preterist/world is getting better” prophets are willing to go.  I grew up in a manifested sons of God theology church.  Not good stuff.  Later in life I worked in a hotel that hosted many new age/occult conferences.  I would listen in occasionally.  Ramtha (J. Z. Knight) and even Shirley Maclaine talked in similar ways.  Which leads into……

The quote from Ian Clayton could be mistaken for something from The Lost Teachings Of Jesus by Elizabeth Clare Prophet or something from The Ascended Masters Of Atlantis or from Edgar Cayce.  Pure occult teaching.

The Welton quote is an example of how far the teachers of the” partial preterist/world is getting better” viewpoint are willing to go.  I guess it took the Holy Spirit over 1970 years to get us to see that partial preterism is “akin to the virgin birth, the cross or the resurrection.”

Why do these men have a voice in some sections of the Church ?


Is it because pastors and prophets are too weak and too compromised to say something ?

Is it because the love of mammon rules over righteous teaching and thinking ?

Has pushing a narrative become so lucrative that we are willing to blend the Bible with occult and new age teaching ?

Are we bullied by the lie that we are not to name names and cause division ?

Are we so easily manipulated by the progressive spirit at work in our nation that we feel it’s too politically incorrect to expose false teachers ?

All of the above and….

We have gone beyond the Word of God.  Lusts are crying out and ears must be itched.  People want to hear how great they are.  How powerful they are.  How they are going to live beyond 100 so they can conquer mountains like mythological gods !  They want to understand ancient mysteries and knowledge so they feel apart of something out of a Harry Potter book.  Or they want to feel intellectually superior or elite by understanding the Bible in ways that prove they are “elite”.

Watchmen ? Hellooooooooooooo

2 Timothy 4

I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry

Changing the Nature Of God

Kingdom Files

Here is a quote from part three of Harold Eberle’s book Who Is God ?

“In summary, we can say that God is neither timeless, nor impassible, nor omniscient, nor sovereign, nor totally self-sufficient, nor invulnerable….because He is relational, He is Covenant-Maker, and He loves us. “

Here are two quotes from Clark Pinnock’s  Most Moved Mover : A Theology of God’s Openness.

“Imagine the delight of genuine interactions and loving relationships and the elements of novelty and surprise that a world with an open future would offer God! Why not think of God as cognitively dependent on the world and his knowledge changing as history changes? True, there would be a degree of uncertainty as God faces a partly unsettled future because genuinely free decisions cannot be entirely predicted prior to being taken, but what a beautiful context. Instead of a future that is totally fixed and foreknown, there is one…

Optimistic Eschatoloy….Fantasy or Reality ?

Kingdom Files

1.  If the Book of Revelation was written after 70AD, then Optimistic Eschatology loses its foundation. History points to a 90AD to 95AD authorship. The majority of scholars agree. If your whole house loses its foundation based upon the dating of one book, then maybe you have built upon a faulty foundation ?

2.The optimistic eschatologist “leads” you to believe that the Greek word “ge” is only used to refer to a local inhabited civilization or to the land of a particular nation. They need this definition to be accepted so they can “prove” that the Book of Revelation and 2 Peter 3:10 refer to Jerusalem and Israel in 70AD.

Here are two of at least 150 clear examples that “ge” refers to much more than a local civilization.

1 Corinthians 10:26 “ For the earthis the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof.”

Hebrews 1:10  “ Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid…

How Optimistic Were These Guys……Really ?

Kingdom Files

Preterists claim John Wesley as one of their own.  Really ? 

Here are some excerpts from Wesley’s notes on Matthew 24 with some points on his belief in who the antichrist is.

Speaking of the pope, he said

“He is in an emphatical sense, the Man of Sin, as he increases all manner of sin above measure. And he is, too, properly styled the Son of Perdition, as he has caused the death of numberless multitudes, both of his opposers and followers…He it is…that exalteth himself above all that is called God, or what is worshipped…claiming the highest power, and highest honour…claiming the prerogatives which belong to God alone.

Wesley talked of the destruction of the temple as a great fulfillment of our Lords prophecy but believed Matthew 24 and parallel passages intermingled the end days with what happened in 70 ad … Notes are from his thoughts on Matt…

Raptureless Again ?

Kingdom Files

In the book Raptureless by Jonathan Welton and on the Raptureless website, Bishop Thomas Newton (1704 – 1782) is touted as a Hero For An Optimistic Future.  In chapter 3 of Raptureless, the author has the following quote…

“It is to me a wonder how any man can refer part of the foregoing discourse [Matt. 24] to the destruction of Jerusalem, and part to the end of the world, or any other distant event, when it is said so positively here in the conclusion, All these things shall be fulfilled in this generation.” Thomas Newton (1755)

Remember, preterists believe that Matthew 24 and all but two chapters (maybe) of the Book of Revelation were completed and fulfilled in 70AD when Rome destroyed Jerusalem.  They say that there is no future antichrist (that was Nero). They teach that there is no tribulation and even that the Lord is done with the…

Kingdom Thoughts

The kingdom spoken of by the prophets of the Old Testament was the kingdom preached by Jesus Christ and the writers of the New Testament.

When I pray “Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” I am praying for the rulership of Messiah from Jerusalem over the earth just like the first century Jews prayed for.  I am not praying for some nebulous takeover of the seven spheres of this world.

The question is not the “what” of the kingdom but the “when” and the “how”.

Israel’s prosperity, growth, and peace in the land were conditional upon obedience. Her eventual restoration into the land (1948) and unto the Lord, are unconditional because the covenant is everlasting.

Genesis 17:8 “ And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”

You CANNOT apply the curses to Israel literally and then spiritualize the blessings !

The kingdom was a familiar topic in first century Israel. John the Baptist and Jesus announced it without redefining it.

God always is King and has a kingdom as Creator but desires an earthly kingdom ruled by His Son.

Isa 9:7 “Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.”

The kingdom was among or in the midst of first century Israel in the Person of THE King.

The King’s first coming was in humiliation for the purpose of redemption.

The King’s second coming will be in glory to reign over mankind.

The original plans or designs of the kingdom have not changed.

Gentile believers are now grafted into the olive tree.

Romans 11:24 “Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off. And they also, if they do not continue in unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, who are natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?”

Jerusalem will be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. Then the Jews will be restored and a Jew will rule from Jerusalem and there will never be another world power or ruler !  If this is not true, then why did the Apostles never correct this view ?  After the ascension, the apostles never spoke of the kingdom of heaven as being at hand or near.  It wasn’t until the Alexandrian and Augustinian warping of the true teachings of the Apostles that things changed.

The restoration of Israel in 1948 is a sign and a testimony. It was miraculous and preparatory.

The barren woman (Israel) will soon bring forth. Isaiah 54

The divorced woman (Israel) will be restored. Jeremiah 3

When the Son of man returns, He will come in glory with His angels and sit upon the throne of His glory and judge the nations. After this begins the times of restitution and refreshing, the regeneration and renewal of all things.  The best is yet to come !!

8 1/2 Eschatological Core Values

1. I will not embrace an end time world view that denies that the prince of the power of the air works through the sons of disobedience,
and that death has not been destroyed…yet.

2. I will not accept a philosophy that blames an eschatology for taking away my children’s future, and creates mindsets that undermine the mentality of leaving a legacy.

3. I will not tolerate any theology that distorts the clear command to make disciples of all peoples (Gentile or Jew, Greek or Roman, African or Asian) into a mandate to take over the world and govern all nations.

4. I will not allow any interpretation of the scriptures that tells me not to look for the Blessed Hope and glorious appearing of Jesus Christ, and overlooks our command to live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present age.

5. I will not embrace an eschatology that changes the nature of a holy, just, and loving God into a God who is only good
as defined by the mind of man.

6. I refuse to embrace any mindset that celebrates feathers, gemstones, or gold dust as a sign of the times,
and proof that the kingdom is being established, or that a man or ministry is sanctioned by God.

7. I am opposed to any doctrinal position that pushes the warnings of judgment and wrath into the past (70AD) and therefore
takes away my responsibility to warn and inform.

8. I believe the last days are a time of judgment where the tares and the nations are being prepared.  There is a day of judgment
for the Christian and it will be a sorrowful day as well as a joyous day.

1/2. I am vehemently opposed to ear itching, ear itchers, and the modern fables created by all who thrive in the Kingdom of Christian Fantasy.

An Example of the Spirit of Heresy

Marcion was a second century teacher of false doctrine who was branded a heretic early in the third century.  Tertullian wrote 5 books specifically addressing his teachings.  Concerning the god that was “created” by Marcion, Tertullian wrote….

“What a prevaricator of truth is such a god!  What a dissembler with his own decision!  Afraid to condemn what he really condemns, afraid to hate what he does not love, permitting that to be done which he does not allow, choosing to indicate what he dislikes rather than deeply examine it!  This will turn out an imaginary goodness, a phantom of discipline, perfunctory in duty, careless in sin.  Listen, ye sinners; and ye who have not yet come to this, hear, that you may attain to such a pass!  A better god has been discovered, who never takes offense, is never angry, never inflicts punishment, who has prepared no fire in hell, no gnashing of teeth in the outer darkness!  He is purely and simply good.  He indeed forbids all delinquency, but only in word.  He is in you, if you are willing to pay him homage, for the sake of appearances, that you may seem to honour God; for your fear he does not want.  And so satisfied are the Marcionites with such pretences, that they have no fear of their god at all.

Marcion created a”better” god by dividing the Word of God. Marcion threw out any and all writings that were too Jewish. He also discarded all writings that addressed wrath or judgment or punishment. He only allowed writings on love, grace, and acceptance. He compiled a “Bible” for his followers that did not contain the Old Testament. His “Bible” was a compilation of a changed version of the Gospel of Luke (because he wasn’t a Jew) and edited versions of Paul’s writings. That’s it. Through this he created a better god. Marcion viewed the God of the Old Testament as a vindictive lower level god. Jesus Christ was an improvement. He created…….

A god of love and grace….no room for wrath or judgment.
A god that’s always in a good mood… room for punishment or chastisement.
A god that accepts you as you are and requires no change….no room for hatred of sin.
A god that only wants you to change your mind about Him….no room for true repentance.
A god that is concerned about suffering and culture….but not sin or the heart of man.
A god that accepts all men in whatever state they are or choose to remain in…..because there is no hell or outer darkness.

This spirit is alive and well in today’s church. How does it work today ?

It still divides the Word of God but it is more subtle.
Instead of throwing away the Old Testament, it’s relegated to a lower status.
Or the whole Bible is divided into covenants and all but the new covenant is considered irrelevant.
Sometimes it focuses only on Ephesians or the letters of Paul and states that everything else is Old Covenant.
It teaches that there is no judgment or wrath or punishment left because it all happened in 70AD at the destruction of Jerusalem.

It feeds off of pride and unbelief.

Here’s the truth….

Any teaching that does not come from the understanding that the Word of God is unified in its expression of the nature of God…… is a product of the mind of man and the spirit of heresy.

Any teaching that does not understand the synergy of…

the Gospel and law
grace and sin
faith and repentance
Old Covenant and New Covenant
First Adam and Last Adam
Son of God and Son of Man
Lamb of God and Lion of Judah…

is actually inferior and its root is unbelief.

Beware of teachers who push a “better” theology or covenant or revelation.
