Dear believers in grace,
We wish you all a blessed New Year in the Saviour of the world!
 
Teaching at an Elementary School
The first week and a half of December we went to another province to help teach at a Christian school.  Most of the parents and students are not Christians so it was a good opportunity to share the gospel.  I taught English to 1st-5th graders.  The 4th and 5th graders were pretty good, but it was challenging to teach the 1st-3rd graders.  There are few foreigners in that province so the children enjoyed seeing a foreigner and I got to hand out many tracts and also share Bible lessons at the flag pole and at chapel one day.  Micah got to join the nursery school for 3 days until he got some kind of a stomach bug.  He enjoyed learning very much and according to Khae was the most enthusiastic student in the class.
 
Women’s Prison
We came back to Chiang Mai in time to have a Christmas worship service at the Women’s Prison.  We’re still teaching them from the book of Revelation.  The massage class there is also going well—still a big group of about 80 students.
 
Christmas Party
We had a Christmas party for our students and invited their parents also.  I also invited my adult students.  About 20 people came.  We sang some Christmas songs and then Khae shared the gospel through the Christmas story and we gave everyone either a gospel of John in the Shan language or some Thai gospel books.  Here are a couple of pictures from that.
 
John’s Signature Words
A couple months ago Khae read a book by a Thai Lutheran pastor who (following in Martin Luther’s footsteps) doubted that John wrote the book of Revelation or if it even should be in our Bible.  I did a very interesting word study on this comparing the gospel of John, I-III John, and the book of Revelation.  I think the results are beyond any coincidence.  The book of Revelation not only has the “fingerprints” of John all over it, but the author also has such a rich knowledge of the Old Testament woven into the book (by divine inspiration)-- it is unmistakably God breathed.  I’m attaching a short paper on that here.
 
Peace in Christ, Scott, Khae, and Micahberekiah.

Sandra's Prayer Request, Sep. 19th, 2016

Sandra asks for prayer for her and her husband and that God will lead her husband to Truth.

I didn't know whether or not my request to you for prayer is acceptable protocol, but necessity brings me here.

I've been married for over 33 years. Dan was an atheist when I married him, I a pagan. I was converted to Christ within 18 months of marriage, and shortly after a Great War with Dan, he also embraced Christianity. Along the line my husband became indifferent to the things of God. Really too much to write concerning the in between. Only that he has been addicted to pornography for a very long time, and much has been lost because of it.

He has informed me that he 'through much research' has embraced preterism and replacement theology, and that we have been lied too. It's funny, I have endured years of financial, emotional, physical neglect, and mistreatment,
But somehow I am having such a hard time dealing with this blatant heresy! I believe strongly in marriage, and have seen the goodness of God in my life in spite of all I've endured, and know that my place is here. Yet, this is harder for me climb through.

I need prayer. Not many saints out there who really pray any more. Sad, and difficult times when your supposed Hebrons are no where to find.  I don't know if you would, but I need grace to help me in my time of need. I am praying, and fasting.

Thank you for taking the time.

Thailand Update August 2016

Jacob's Trip
It was a blessing to see Jacob here last month.  He preached a message on Sunday, which I thought was an excellent message.  It’s uploaded to YouTube here… 
 
Women’s Prison
The following day we went to the Women’s Prison to hold a church service there.  About 150 ladies were there.  The praise and worship was really uninhibited, and there were lots of “Amens” during the messages also.  It’s different from going to a typical Thai worship service outside, where they might have a lot of noise, but the atmosphere is different.  Jacob preached there about the Last Days, and I translated.  With time constraints it was a fairly short message, but really got them interested in the topic (which we hope to teach about more month by month), talking about “birth pangs,” which many of them could relate to, as this is a biblical metaphor used regarding the End Times.
 
One of the ladies in our weekly English class there showed a strong interest in the gospel.  Please pray for her and others who may not outwardly show an interest, but who are thinking nonetheless.
 
Shan Camp
We went to a Shan work camp not far from our house and gave them a lamb to eat.  Jallay preached in Shan about the Passover and how Jesus is the Lamb of God.  After that we gave an invitation and about ten of the adults raised their hands to pray with us.  In Thai/Burmese culture this may or may not mean they really were touched and want to get right with God.  Sometimes people may raise their hands just to be friendly or because the message sounded good, but not necessarily that they will commit their lives fully to Jesus.  We need to follow up with them.
 
Khae’s Testimony
Khae had a chance to share her testimony in English last month and she spent about 6 hours writing it out again.  The way she wrote it this time I thought was really good.  I’m attaching that here.
 
Also, here are some pictures of Micah with Jacob and also of our time at the prison.  We went to a friend's birthday party last month and I prayed for him.  During the prayer Micah said "Amen" all throughout the prayer.  I think Micah's a pentecostal ?
 
CHILDREN'S DENTAL MISSION
Moriel Children's Dental Mission in Olongapo is now underway. 49 kids and 11 more are coming. We took the severe tooth ache cases and gum disease cases first. None of these kids ever saw a dentist and the smaller ones didn't know what a dentist is. Some of the little ones didn't have a clue what was going on.
 
There were rainbow coloured numbers, rainbow socks and rainbow flags.
 
THE DEVELOPMENT AND ORIGINS OF MODERN PRE WRATH & INTER SEAL POSITIONS – A BRIEF SYNOPSIS
 

Prayer Request For Brother David Pawson

Moriel & Jacob Prasch seriously request prayer for Christian author and scripture expositor David Pawson in the UK who is battling an aggressive cancer that is diagnosed as inoperable.   We ask The Lord for intervention, guidance for David's physicians, and that neither pain, the effects of the disease, or any side effects of treatment will inhibit his capacity to serve The Lord and continue his preaching schedule. May The Lord strengthen him and not least of all may he and his wife bask in the peace of Jesus during this season of difficulty. Most of our doctrine, and all of our fundamental doctrine is congruous with the doctrinal positions of David, although the styles and approach certainly differ. We regard him as a much needed asset to The Body of Christ at this time. 
 
We received these questions:
The first time I ever heard of you was watching THE DANIEL PROJECT on Netflix (probably 4 years ago). The second time I saw you was this week, on YouTube. It was a response to Dr James White. That was … “wow.” I’m deliberately keeping this short because I want to get to the reason I’m reaching out to you, but I have to say, I also agree that Calvin was a brutal and bloody man who caused his beliefs to spread by the sword. I cannot see how any modern Christian can be a Calvinist not only because of how Calvin was, but because of the whole 'once saved, always saved, do as you like’ pitch.
 
Contrary to baseless reports being circulated on feminist blog sites calling themselves "Christian" , neither Moriel or its leadership have issued any apology for our doctrinal opposition to this feminism of the secular world infiltrating the Body of Christ under the clear influence of Satan. The doctrinal ignorance reflected on these feminist blogs is unmistakably evident as is the fact that their feminist rants are fuelled by emotionally charged outbursts reflecting the demonic Jezebel spirit where the husbands submit to their wives in an abrogation of God's order.

Moriel recognizes the indispensable  role of women in ministry in the Body of Christ , including in leadership and teaching ministry to other women as well as in deaconship, and exercising charismatic gifts in scriptural order which includes ministering under the authority of protective male covering , and as help mates to their husbands.  To this end, Moriel additionally has also funded the ministry of various women and sponsored women's conference events and continues to do so. There are in fact also two Moriel branches administrated by women whom we doctrinally classify as deaconesses. We also continue to sanction the excellent women's ministries of notable figures such as Johanna Michaelson, Caryl Matriciana, and a number of Precept women discipled by the teaching of Kay Arthur. There are indeed a number of women's ministries  who deserve our prayers, support, and endorsement - but neither the Paula White, Cindy Jacobs, and Joyce Meyer houses of heresy, the lunatic fringe "Women's Aglow" or the cultic "End times Handmaidens of The Lord" movement, or their first cousins - the blogging pseudo Christian feminist Jezabel clubs are among them.

We also however stand by the unambiguous scriptural teaching that leadership is male and that women cannot teach doctrine to mixed congregations or function as pastors. When God uses an Esther, there is always a Mordecai. When God uses a Deborah, there is always a Barak, and when God uses a Priscilla, there is an Aquila. Where there is an Ahab however, there is also a Jezebel.

The husband is the head of the wife as Christ is head of the church (Ephesians 5:22-23). This is God's position, and thus it is therefore also ours. This is the unambiguous teaching of God's Word and we unapologetically abide by it.

Prayer Request for Rob

I’ve been enormously blessed by the Ministry of Moriel; particularly through the informative and insightful teaching of Jacob Prasch.
The reason why I am contacting you is that I am seeking wider prayer support for a friend of mine called Rob, who goes to St Matthews church in Dunedin, New Zealand.

Rob has cancer in his bowel; they can’t treat it due to inadequate blood supply in the region where it is located, so he’s on continuous chemotherapy to stop it from spreading to other areas and causing secondaries. His wife lost her first husband the same disease.

Rob and his wife are committed Christians and are lovely people; Rob is also a very gifted musician. Rob and his wife have been upheld a lot by prayer and encouragement at St Matthews, but I want to widen prayer support for them. It’s been a long haul and both have been through a lot.

I'm very hesitant in contacting any intercessory groups as I know some can very flakey.

I was wondering if you could suggest any people or groups who could pray for Rob, or pass this on yourselves for others to pray.

It would be good to pray for complete healing and not simply for the cancer to go into remission.

Thank you

STATE OF MORIEL 2016

To our Brethren in Jesus,
It is appropriate for me to commence by earnestly thanking you all for your much valued and appreciated prayers and support during the last year. This has been particularly true in light of my own health struggles with lympho-edema and the infectious cellulites in my lower limbs that easily cause recurrence. I have spent three stretches hospitalized in the UK & USA totaling nearly seven weeks since September when I very nearly went home to glory because of bilateral kidney and hepatic failure due to cellulite infection. I have since that time been hospitalized twice and had surgery in California plus a series of subcutaneous tissue ingrates above my ankle. My lower legs remain in compression castings and I undergo self administered lymphatic pump treatments daily plus, for the moment, a cocktail if medication. I frequently require crutches to be mobile.  The susceptibility to cellulite reinfection is high and the ramifications for my neck injury and restrictions on the hydro therapy I used to reduce reliance on anti-inflammatory agents is problematic. The anti inflammatory drugs, without which I experience extremely painful brachio-plexis and partial paralysis in my left arm, are contra-indicated for other medications I am required to take. Yet The Lord has allowed this.

Dr. David Reagan is an avowed annihilationist, a false teacher who rejects eternal hell and denies what the Scriptures clearly teach:—namely, that for those who worship the Antichrist and take the Mark of the Beast, the "smoke of their torment" in hell shall go up εἰς αἰῶνας αἰώνων "for ever and ever" (Revelation 14: 9-11). In his thinking, no such place as eternal hell  exists. 
 
He was certainly a deceiver who did much harm to NZ (and to the UK via Hallel Grange deliverance centre which he was a co-founder of along with Peter Harrobin, who divorced his Christian wife and married another woman with no valid scriptural grounds such as unrepentant adultery by her)

Recently I received two emails from good believing friends concerning non observance of Christmas based on the contents of two articles included below by Alan Franklin and Kevin Kleint. This is my considered response.

Blessings.

I have a very similar attitude as Alan & Pat Franklin towards Christmas. I do not celebrate it as such, recognizing that it’s commercial and aspects (largely borrowed from Pagan influences, such as 'mistletoe') have usurped the centrality of the Nativity. It is also a false method of bringing children happiness. As Moishe Rosen, founder of 'Jews For Jesus' stated: "Sana Clause (father Christmas) is a communist who dresses in red and only gives away things that other people pay for and corrupts children into thinking happiness comes primarily from material things.Read more ...

Memorial - Mrs. David Hocking

It is with tremendous joy for her but sadness for David that we learned that our sister and friend Carole Hocking went home to be with Jesus after a long standing battle with a cruel blood disorder.   May David Hocking know the encouragement and assurance of the resurrection of Jesus during this season of bereavement secure in the certainty that such a temporary loss is but an interruption. Carole is not dead but asleep yet in the conscious presence of Jesus and will reign with Jesus on the earth for 1,000 years literally and physically before the greater blessings still of the New Jerusalerm.    We had the blessing and privilege of knowing Carole personally and we shall miss her until that coming wonderful day. She was a sweet, Christ loving lady who without complaint endured much agony related  to her illness but she is now perfected knowing only the inexpressible glories of being with Yeshua.    Jacob Prasch & Moriel request prayer for David Hocking at this time and may he know the condolences, love and fellowshjp of The Body of Christ as he awaits seeing his beloved Carole again.

Daniel Connection

Moriel has received a considerable volume of questions regarding ordering copies of the DVD  'THE DANIEL CONNECTION' produced by Studio Scotland.   This film is not a Moriel production and Jacob Prasch was not involved in its production or as a cast member and Moriel is therefore not involved in its sale, marketing , or distribution (brief film clips from other unrelated footage of Jacob filmed at an earlier point without any reference to The Daniel Connection do appear, but not as a cast member and with no involvement of Jacob or ofMoriel).   The earlier 'THE DANIEL PROJECT' is a Documentary in which Jacob was involved in the production as narrator for evangelistic reasons and it can be ordered via the Moriel catalogue. The DANIEL CONNECTION however is a Docu - fiction and is not a DVD that we carry.   Orders for THE DANIEL CONNECTION cannot be placed or made with Moriel and we cannot provide any information concerning its script or its sale. . We respectfully request Moriel not be contacted in this regard as we have no authorization or capacity to furnish such information

Prayer Request

Moriel & Jacob Prasch request prayer for Brother Alan McIntyre who is in Cyprus recovering from major cancer surgery of a very serious nature. Please pray for Alan's recovery and that the cancer has been eradicated by The Lord's grace.   Alan operates a blog and represents Moriel on a volunteer basis In Cyprus. Alan had  been a senior ranking fire fighter in Liverpool, England but took early retirement after objecting to firefighters being compelled to March in Homosexual parades and attend 'gay sensitivity' training during the era of  Tony Blaire's government, knowing that unless they unlikely repent which Romans chapter 1 states is unlikely once God 'gives the practitioners of such lifestyles over to it' , such persons whom Alan desired to see saved will be in a situation where all of the firefighters in Great Britain will not be able to extinguish the fires of eternal hell or rescue a single one of them.   After retirement Alan did not retire from ministry and helped organise Moriel day seminars etc. in North Wales before relocating Cyprus which is near Israel where he and wife frequently visit.   Your prayers for Alan and his family and his ministry as well as wisdom for his physicians are deeply valued.
 

Condolences - Nancy Missler

Moriel & Jacob Prasch express our sincere condolences in Jesus to  our friend & brother Chuck Missler on the temporary loss of his  beloved wife Nancy. Our prayers are that Chuck will know the consolation of .Christ during this time of bereavement.    Her battle against the gruesome facial cancer was not lost;  but rather the victory of Jesus was won.    Jacob of course knew Nancy and Chuck and we rejoice that through a sincere faith in Jesus death has been conquered.   Job 19: 25-27

Muddy Waters: The "Church of Christ"

by Scott Noble
Oct 20, 2015 
As the bumper sticker says, "I wasn't born in Iowa, but I moved there as soon as I could." Well, I did live in Iowa for about ten years, and Boston is a long ways from Iowa. Who would have thought, a church that by many accounts is considered to be a cult, which has roots in Boston, would be operating within biking distance of our residence? Actually we live in Thailand now, but the International Church of Christ, which didn't start, but blossomed in Boston in the nineteen eighties to nineties, and has older roots going back to the nineteenth century (Alexander Campbell and associates roots), has even more influence here in Thailand than I've seen in Iowa (though maybe I just didn't see that influence there). I can think of at least five spheres of influence here in our city which are spreading the false doctrine of baptismal regeneration-- the belief that a person is not born again until they are baptized. In that belief salvation is water dependent, in contrast to the biblical doctrine that our sins are washed away by our Lord Jesus Christ's precious blood (Revelation 1:5). 
 

The Islamization of Britain in 2014

by Soeren Kern
December 30, 20
The Muslim population of Britain reached 3.4 million in 2014 to become around 5.3% of the overall population of 64 million, according to figures extrapolated from a recent study on the growth of the Muslim population in Europe. In real terms, Britain has the third-largest Muslim population in the European Union, after France and Germany.
 
Dear All,
This is our overview of what is happening, it can't be exhaustive, too much is happening and I can't pretend that this is an in depth analysis either, but perhaps it will give Moriel supporters an idea of what is going on. The news over here and the blogs are full (of course) of reports on this "new intifada,"--though whether it is an intifada or not is a matter of debate; but over here it is called the gal-ha-terror, the "terror wave". It has so far lacked the cohesion and concerted nature of a general uprising, but consists more of "lone wolf" attacks, so called. In one sense these kind of attacks are far more terrifying, because they are not localised, they can occur anywhere (thankfully not in our town so far), and even the Moslem friend or trusted Moslem Arab worker that you have known for years can turn into a killing machine. The attacks are not just being perpetrated by the unemployed or the "poor and disadvantaged" sectors of Palestinian society either; one of the recent attacks in Jerusalem was perpetrated by a Moslem employee of Bezek (our national telecom and phone company and in which jobs are coveted) who drove his company car into a group of pedestrians mowing some down, then leapt out and proceeded to stab them.

I am writing this article to address a subject that I have often observed. It is the fact that if you do not get the leaven out of your church the leaven will become the leadership.

As Pope Francis arrives in the USA, the Vatican characteristically expects the media, the Congress, and the public to simply ignore the fact that when Cardinal of Buenos Aires, Francis staunchly refused to meet with the children sexually victimized by his priests and nuns and with their families. His pedophile sex criminal clergy were protected as the defenseless little children were raped and he refused to even meet them or their parents. So the College of Cardinals in a convocation that included multiple protectors and de facto enablers of baby raping sexual deviants frocked in their vestments, habits, and cassocks, including Los Angeles Cardinal Mahony and Boston Cardinal Law, elected Bergoglio pope and said he is 'the 'Vicar of Christ'. But didn't Christ say that “It is better to have a millstone tied to one's neck and be cast into the sea rather than harm a helpless little child”? Now this same Francis is coming to the land of Mahony with his lies and baloney, and of Law, who rather proved himself to be utterly law-less. These reprobates who shielded dangerous sexual deviates at the expense of the children whose molestation and sexual and homosexual violation these servants of Lucifer helped facilitate are among those who helped elect Bergoglio, so why wouldn't George (Jorge) Bergoglio cum Pope Francis come to the USA? How can such a disgusting pretender misrepresent himself as the vicar of a Christ whose very Words he nullifies and whose example he shuns in favor of a public relations motivated charade packaged in pseudo sanctimonious pomposity of the very same brand Jesus flagrantly condemned in the Gospel of St. Matthew chapter 23?

Blessings from Israel.
Despite its battles and opposition from Satan and harassment from unbelieving Orthodox Rabbinic Organizations such as Yad L'Achim, we are witnessing a wonderful tide of steady growth in the Body of Yeshua in Israel. Moriel is committed to helping indigenous congregations inane way we can especially in the area of evangelism. But growth creates challenges and presents needs. The increase in numbers of Jewish believers we are seeing has been a blessing that at one time would have been unfathomable.

Prayer Request

Since May I have been doing open-air preaching/evangelism/witnessing on the weekend evenings.  I preach the word on street corners in Phoenix, Tempe, and Scottsdale, and give out Bibles to whoever wants one, and witness one-on-one.  On average I give out about 5 or 6 Bibles per day that I preach.  I just leave them in a stack nearby and let people know there are free Bibles and they pick them up if they are interested.  I get the Bibles at Goodwill, Savers, used book stores, and from my church.  I go out at night after the kids are in bed because I don't want to give up my time with my family during the day and early evening.  It's been a blessing to see people respond to the Gospel, take Bibles, even repent and believe right there on the street!  There is also lots of opposition both "on the field and off the field," so to speak.  Of course the enemy likes to mock, taunt, ridicule, attack anything that is of the Lord and His Word.     I'm writing to request prayer.  I'm usually out on Friday or Saturday evenings.  Your prayers for lost souls, for the furtherance of the Gospel, for protection from the enemy, for favor with the authorities, for words that are not mine - but God's, etc., are greatly greatly appreciated.  If you are in a prayer group or know a "prayer warrior" who would be willing to keep this in prayer, please pass the request along.  At times it's very difficult and discouraging but there is always hope and joy in it no matter how hard it seems, because I know the Lord is doing His work, and "...neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase."[1Co 3:7].   Thank you and God bless you.   Art
 

The Attack Of The Enemy On Churches

So much heresy is entering the churches these days. As you would suspect, sometimes it is due to a pastor attending a conference or reading a book and becoming diapraxed with unbiblical ideas. He then starts to weave those ideas into his messages and begins to invite speakers to the church who expound on those ideas. Then when confronted by someone in the church who has reservations about the new stuff being taught, they are told to not talk about it and just go along with the program. If that person does not they are ostracized, slandered behind their back, and often told to leave (which is what they should do in any case).

Is Dominionism Working?

Since the counterfeit revivals of the mid 80's there has been a claim by many Latter Rain /Word of Faith groups that the church is going to take over the world, taking control of the governments, businesses and every other aspect of life. Movements such as the Toronto "Blessing", Brownsville "Outpouring", Word of Faith, New Apostolic Reformation, Emergent Church, and many other related Latter Rain movements have been claiming that they are making radical changes in people's lives due to miracles, prophecies, dead raisings, and growing numbers of people attending mega churches. So by now, in 2014, we should be seeing the effects of this wonderful scenario that the false apostles, false prophets, false teachers, and false Christs of these movements have predicted.

Psalms 119:105 WELCOME TO MORIEL MINISTRIESMoriel is an international multi-faceted ministry of Jewish and non-Jewish regenerate believers one in Jesus the Messiah.

Moriel is committed to the evangelization beginning with The Jews but also of people of other faiths including Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism,   and theologically deviant expressions of Christendom including Roman Catholicism (which we view as aberrational much as we deem Talmudic Judaism to be likewise largely unscriptural). To this end Moriel plants churches, and operates missions especially among impoverished children in the Third World. While mainly rejecting the later midrashic writings of the rabbis, Moriel is also a teaching ministry seeking to exegetically interpret scripture with the Judeo-Christian hermeneutic of the apostolic   church including the midrashic exegesis used by Jesus and Paul (midrash is a term found multiple times in the Tenak or Old Testament).

Lastly, Moriel is active in the area of discernment withstanding the popular apostasy in the contemporary church that The Word of God warns would precede the return of Jesus. We remain firmly aligned to the conviction that contemporary events in The Middle East , Europe, and in the church make the present time in history different from other eras when people thought it was the last days. We affirm the belief that Jesus is coming again and prophecy of His return is radically being fulfilled increasingly.

When it comes to books devoted to eschatology in general and the Rapture specifically, they often either read like a formal academic argument written solely for the benefit of scholars or employ the use of fiction to avoid directly handling the underlying biblical text. As with Jacob's previous books and exhaustive list of sermons covering nearly every area of theology,  Harpazo  presents the doctrine of the Rapture and Resurrection in the strictest biblical sense possible, leveraging the handling of Scripture in the same manner as passed along to us by Christ through the Apostles and Early Church of the 1st century.

Often the typical format of such books is to spend more time explaining and refuting all the positions the author  does not  subscribe to rather than focus exclusively on what they believe and have derived from Scripture.  Harpazo  may be unique in the complete absence of charts and seemingly endless trips to sidebars to constantly compare alternate interpretations the author does not subscribe to in the first place. Jacob was asked to continue to employ in an expanded book format the same exegesis of Scripture which is present in all of his teachings regardless of whether or not they are eschatological. After all, "The Apocalypse" means "unveiling", and that "lifting of the curtain", so to speak, as we approach the ever nearer Return of Christ is the Holy Spirit's revelation of Scripture as already given,  not  a new opinion by man..

The Gospels are clear that immediately in the wake of His Resurrection, Christ not only imparted the Holy Spirit to His disciples, but directly instructed them in how He was the fulfillment of the whole of Scripture. (Lk. 24:27, 44-45) In other words, the interpretation of  all  of God's Word, every Book of the Old Testament included, was re-cast as Christological, having not just a literal, primary meaning for the times any Scripture was originally given, but an added meaning for either Christ's First Coming, Second Coming, or both. Like every doctrine and theology, the Rapture and Resurrection are illustrated through many scriptural people, places and events throughout the whole of God's Word and not simply limited to a single biblical reference.

Using the Early Church hermeneutics of typology to  illustrate  and  illuminate  doctrine, Jacob shows how there are  many  raptures and rescues in Scripture which combine to teach what is going to ultimately take place in the  Parousia—the Second Coming of Christ. Likewise, there is a wealth of similar events and patterns throughout Scripture which teach us what to expect from related issues such as the Two Witnesses, the role of the 144,000 and Israel yet to come, the pattern of judgments in Revelation and how they actually replay Old Testament and historical parallels, and a wealth of other such End Times teachings already established in the canon of Scripture.

Jesus Himself established this hermeneutic by categorically teaching that the Last Days would be realized in the character of the days of Noah as well as Lot. The Apostles in their writings not only confirmed these specific examples but built upon them. The question for believers in the Last Days is not whether or not some kind of "new" revelation or word from God has been revealed, but how what has already been given is, in these final hours, being unveiled to believers by the Holy Spirit. What Daniel was told to seal until the end, John was told would be ultimately unsealed.

Some of the chapter titles in  Harpazo  will sound familiar to those already acquainted with Jacob's teachings, but he has never tied everything together overall to this degree before. This book is not about creating another End Times chart, but making a good faith effort to draw together in one place what the whole counsel of God's Word is teaching not just for a single event or prophetic fulfillment, but the overall doctrinal basis by which believers are supposed to act and behave as they are putting His Word into practice. Whereas many limit their teaching on the Rapture to just the drama of the physical event itself, one of the remarkable differences presented in  Harpazo  is the believer's place in the Rapture and Resurrection and their active role in preparation for it. Recognition of the nearness of His Return invokes a responsibility to live accordingly.

Those expecting an academic treatment of eschatology or hoping for a formal rebuttal of alternative positions will not find such in  Harpazo. But those placing a priority on what God's Word is saying more than the word and opinions of man will derive tangible benefits from the book regardless of which "ism" or eschatology currently held. Jacob presents us with a thorough  proactive  exegesis of Scripture by concentrating on what Scripture affirms rather than a  reactive  rebuttal of the beliefs of man, which all too often actually fall outside biblical boundaries.

Those expecting an academic treatment of eschatology or hoping for a formal rebuttal of alternative positions will not find such in  Harpazo. But those placing a priority on what God's Word is saying more than the word and opinions of man will derive tangible benefits from the book regardless of which "ism" or eschatology currently held. Jacob presents us with a thorough  proactive  exegesis of Scripture by concentrating on what Scripture affirms rather than a  reactive  rebuttal of the beliefs of man, which all too often actually fall outside biblical boundaries.
