The False Rapture Doctrine

cav11cav12cav10

“In early 1830, Margaret McDonald, a 15 year old Scottish Girl had visions that included a Secret Rapture of believers before the appearance of the Antichrist. Edward Irving (1792-1834) her Scottish Presbyterian pastor and forerunner of the Pentecostal and Charismatic movements, attended prophecy conferences that began in Dublin Ireland in that same year, 1830, at Powerscourt Castle. There he promoted the doctrine of the Secret Rapture.”

I was saving this FOR LAST, but, because of the rise of Godfather Trump in the polls due to the support of Evangelicals, it is imperative that all Americans – and the world – know the core of the Evangelical Cult – is rotten! Christian scholars have traced the Rapture Fraud to a fifteen year old girl who was having a fever. My friend, Ed Corbin, is kin to Francis Cavenagh who was a Plymouth Brethren, a sect that John Darby took over and pushed the false vision of Margaret McDonald.  Francis was at the death scene of  J.G. Bellett. That is a group photo of the Brethren. Ed is seated with our good friend, Mark Gall, who was the head of the Department of Education at the University of Oregon.

I suspect evangelicals are voting for Trump in what amounts to a self-fulfilling prophecy. They have been primed, and their fuses lit every Sunday, when their minister does his loyalty check to see who IS NOT buying it, and thus, will be left behind. This mass hysteria needs to be studied at the United Nations – NOW! This madness threatens the whole world, especially if Trump is President. False Evangelical prophets may already be steering him towards pushing the button so there will be a – Great Tribulation and the coming of the vengeful Jesus!

Study the film The Moment After’ and these words “the last trump”. When I go to the mall I try to spot the End Timers who really see this happening. They act like they don’t belong here. Evangelicals show a total disregard for reality, and indeed, they want the way things – are – to come to an end! This is not normal Christianity. It is a new invention!

You see the Nazi troops invading Poland and Russia with utter disdain for the reality of other people’s lives. There is a rapturous glow on their faces. They own a Big Promise given to them by Germany’s Supreme Father who said he will fix everything, and everyone, and………..MAKE GERMANY GREAT AGAIN! This is far worse than RACISM. You have to wake up!

“in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rapture

In Christian eschatology the rapture refers to the belief that either before, or simultaneously with, the Second Comingof Jesus Christ to Earth, believers who have died will be raised and believers who are still alive and remain shall be caught up together with them (the resurrected dead believers) in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air

“The fact that John Nelson Darby invented the pre-tribulation rapture doctrine around 1830 AD is unquestionably true. All attempts to find evidence of this wild doctrine before 1830 have failed.”

“‘Soon after Francis Cavenagh and I were left alone for the night, a mist seemed to come round me like the mist of hell, and one was sent to me. I thought I had known him before, he was clothed in white. He denied the truth of Scripture. I took the Word in my hand, and bolted one passage after another at him, but still he held his ground. “The moral glories of Scripture a lie!” I said; “they are as true as heaven and earth.” The temptation still continued; and I felt weak. But I cried to the Lord for help; and gradually I rose out of the mist into a calm atmosphere; and I was with my Evangelists again. But it was dreadful while it lasted, That is a plain, unvarnished tale.’

“We asked Mr. Cavenagh if he perceived anything of it while he watched through the night; and he told us he had been conscious that my father was passing through some new exercise of heart, for he heard him repeating to himself, ‘What time I am afraid, I will trust in Thee,’ and other verses of the same character.

In early 1830, Margaret McDonald, a 15 year old Scottish Girl had visions that included a Secret Rapture of believers before the appearance of the Antichrist. Edward Irving (1792-1834) her Scottish Presbyterian pastor and forerunner of the Pentecostal and Charismatic movements, attended prophecy conferences that began in Dublin Ireland in that same year, 1830, at Powerscourt Castle. There he promoted the doctrine of the Secret Rapture.

John Nelson Darby (1800-1882), a minister of the Church of Ireland, later became a member of the Plymouth Brethren and also promoted a Secret Rapture after attending the same Powerscourt Bible Prophecy meeting in 1830 where he learned of Margaret McDonald’s vision. He visited Margaret McDonald at her home in Port Glasgow, Scotland, then later visited America several times where his Secret Rapture theology was quite well accepted.

The writings of John Darby greatly influenced Cyrus Scofield (1843-1921) who incorporated this doctrine in the notes of his Scofield Reference Bible, first published by Oxford University Press in 1909. One million copies were printed by 1930, firmly establishing this Futurist interpretation in the Bible schools and denominations of the United States in the 20th Century.

.      Rapture doctrine is one of the most recent “new doctrines” in the history of the Church. The only doctrine more recent is the invention of the sinner’s prayer for salvation by Billy Sunday in 1930, which was made popular by Billy Graham in 1935.
2.      The fact that John Nelson Darby invented the pre-tribulation rapture doctrine around 1830 AD is unquestionably true. All attempts to find evidence of this wild doctrine before 1830 have failed, with a single exception: Morgan Edwards wrote a short essay as a college paper for Bristol Baptist College in Bristol England in 1744 where he confused the second coming with the first resurrection of Revelation 20 and described a “pre-tribulation” rapture. However Edwards ideas, which he admitted were brand new and never before taught, had no influence in the modern population of the false doctrine. That prize to goes to Darby.
3.      Prior to 1830, no church taught it in their creed, catechism or statement of faith.
4.      Darby has had a profound impact on religion today, since Darby’s “secret rapture” false doctrine has infected most conservative, evangelical churches. While the official creeds and statements of faith of many churches either reject or are silent about Rapture, neither do they openly condemn this doctrine of a demon from the pulpit.
5.      While not all dispensationalists believe in the Rapture. All those who teach the Rapture also believe in premillennialism. Both groups use Israel’s modern statehood status of 1948 to be a beginning of a countdown to the end.
6.      All premillennialists, rapturists and dispensationalists alive today believe the Bible reveals the general era of when Christ will return. The date setters of the 1800’s (Seventh-day Adventists, Jehovah’s Witnesses) based their predictions upon speculative arrangements of numbers and chronologies in the Bible. Today’s date setters without exception wrongly believe that Israel gaining state hood in 1948 fulfilled Bible prophecy and that Christ would return within one generation.
7.      There are two kinds of premillennialists: Those “Date setters” and “Date Teasers”. “Date setters”, set specific dates which are in fact a countdown clock to the extinction of their own ministries. (William Miller, Charles Russell, Ronald Weinland, Harold Camping, etc.) “Date teasers”, share the same rhetoric of urgency that the “end is very soon”, but refuse to lock into a specific date. (Jack Van Impe, Hal Lindsay, Tim LaHaye, Pentecostals, Baptists, Grant Jefferies, Christadelphians.)
8.      Most of the TV preachers who promote rapture and/or “date set” all wrongly believe they are a prophet of God with special illumination. Pentecostals believe they are inspired directly from the Holy Spirit as modern day prophets. Baptists believe they are illuminated with guidance from the Holy Spirit through the Calvinist doctrine of Irresistible grace.

Jon, it was only a small scrap of information … not much use to you I am afraid.  I will continue looking for those letters written by my grandmother, Emilie Susan Cavenagh Wallace. There may be a bit more there; I would not have paid much attention to Plymouth Brethren info when I was reading her letters 20 years ago.

Cheers, Kendall

I have attached a PDF file that contains a reworking of the information I have in my files.  It eliminates a lot of the redundancy that would have been in the files that my brother, Edwin, would have shown to you.

I hope this will be useful to you in your quest.

The Cavenagh Lineage: (Cavenagh/Kavanaugh/Cavanagh/Kavanagh)
In 1770, at the time of the birth of Sylvester Cavenagh, the family surname was

trained as a farmer at Temple Moyle Seminary and later became an estate
manager for Nathaniel Hone in Dublin, Ireland, and (5) John Paul Cavenagh (1854‐
1931).
Malcolm Cavenagh (1845‐1922) married Emily Jane Reynolds (1844‐1927) of

(1881‐195?), and (6) John Sidney Cavenagh (1885‐1912).
Emilie Susan Cavenagh (1871‐1952) married Robert Bruce Wallace

Emilie Susan Cavenagh (1871‐1952) married Robert Bruce Wallace (1870‐1929) of
Simcoe, Ontario, Canada. Robert and Emilie were parents of: (1) Winifred
Leonora Wallace (1901‐198?) who married William Barton (the science writer for
the Los Angeles Globe), (2) Helen Lucile Wallace (1902‐?) who married Herbert
Popenoe (a professor at the California Institute of Technology), and (3) Eryl Portia
Wallace (1909‐2009) who married Kendall Brooks Corbin of Oak Park, Illinois.

Ken, any news about your kindred – is BIG NEWS! They changed the world for better of worse!

Bellett lived in Dublin and was a leader of the Plymouth Brethren. He wrote letters to John Darby, and your kindred, Francis Cavanagh, is mentioned in one of his letters. The Brethren launched the career of Tim LaHaye who has put in print over a hundred million books, and made many videos concerning the visions of the Plymouth Brethren. Francis was party to Bellett’s vision.

60 Minutes did a show on LaHaye and the evangelical influence on American poltics.

“Evangelicals have been on the cultural defensive. But they have waited in the wilderness. And now in the fullness of time, they have come into possession of what they felt was once rightfully theirs,” says Gomes.

“And so, with the White House, and Tom DeLay, and in the House of Representatives, the attorney general … talk radio, the conservative Fox News, all that sort of thing, these are parts of the righteous army that has finally come into its own.”

Gary Bauer, who once competed with George Bush for the Republican presidential nomination, now runs a Washington organization that lobbies for evangelical Christian issues. He remembers being at the Iowa Republican Presidential debate, when all candidates were asked which political philosopher they most identified with.

President Bush said: “Christ, because he changed my heart. When you accept Christ as a savior, it changes your heart. It changes your life.”

“Oct. 7. When I went into his room this morning, after he had held me in his arms for a few moments, he said, ‘Wondrous has been the thrust of Satan at me this night, and blessed the victory given, but it is as sure as you are my Letty.’ I asked what he referred to; but he said he could not tell me then.
“Soon after breakfast he called us to read; and he spoke a little about the verses 19 to 23 of St. Luke 7. He said that ‘John was weak in one point;’ he expected his prison doors to be opened as the eyes and ears of others were opened. He failed, as ‘every other steward has done, except the One in whom every promise is yea and amen.’ He then offered a short prayer, in which he mentioned the reality of the enemy’s fiery darts, and deliverance from them. Immediately after, he called my uncle and me to either side of the sofa-bed, and gave us the following account of what he had experienced: –
“‘Soon after Francis Cavenagh and I were left alone for the night, a mist seemed to come round me like the mist of hell, and one was sent to me. I thought I had known him before, he was clothed in white. He denied the truth of Scripture. I took the Word in my hand, and bolted one passage after another at him, but still he held his ground. “The moral glories of Scripture a lie!” I said; “they are as true as heaven and earth.” The temptation still continued; and I felt weak. But I cried to the Lord for help; and gradually I rose out of the mist into a calm atmosphere; and I was with my Evangelists again. But it was dreadful while it lasted, That is a plain, unvarnished tale.’
“My dear father told us afterwards that he would not but have gone through this exercise. No shadow seemed to remain upon his heart, and he said it had been a fresh link between his Lord and him.
“We asked Mr. Cavenagh if he perceived anything of it while he watched through the night; and he told us he had been conscious that my father was passing through some new exercise of heart, for he heard him repeating to himself, ‘What time I am afraid, I will trust in Thee,’ and other verses of the same character. He heard him also say, ‘The unassailable Scripture, a tower of beauty and strength.’ He thought it continued for some time; but my father did not seem to him much agitated, and lay quietly for some time after it had passed before he went to sleep.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2016/11/09/exit-polls-show-white-evangelicals-voted-overwhelmingly-for-donald-trump/ Exit polls show white evangelical voters voted in high numbers for Donald Trump, 81-16 percent, according to exit poll results. That’s the most they have voted for a Republican presidential candidate since 2004, when they overwhelmingly chose PresidentGeorge W. Bush by a margin of 78-21 percent. Their support for Trump will likely be seen as part of the reason the GOP candidate performed unexpectedly well in Tuesday’s election, according to Five Thirty Eight.
