Paul clearly warned, For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore, watch and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. Acts 20:29-31.
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into this world. 1 John 4:1.
An astonishing and horrible thing Has been committed in the land: The prophets prophesy falsely, And the priests rule by their own power; And my people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end? Jeremiah 5:30-31.
False teachers and false prophets have always been very popular and the true messengers of God have always been rejected, scorned, abused, slandered and silenced.
Popular, self-proclaimed preacher and Bible prophecy teacher, Geoffrey Grider, has hinted at or named at least six men as the anti-Christ, including Judas Iscariot, Pope Francis and Emmanuel Macron. This is one of the reasons many people scoff at Bible prophecy in these last days.
When naming Pope Francis as the anti-Christ, Geoffrey Grider wrote: “Open up your Bible, find a blank spot next to John 5:43, take a pen and write “FULFILLED” in margin.” Geoffrey Grider, NTEB, September 28, 2015.
12 days earlier he named Judas Iscariot as the anti-Christ.
“Jesus is talking about handing a “sop” to someone [Judas], and then dipping it in a dish. Anyone who has ever spent time with Italian people who can cook know exactly what a sop is. My friend Andy’s mom used to make what Italians call “gravy”, or spaghetti sauce, and it would simmer on the stove for hours. When it was close to done, we would take a fresh piece of Italian bread and dip it in the pot, and we would “sop it up”. Delicious! Now do you see what a sop is? It is a piece of bread for dipping in sauce or olive oil. The NIV renders the sop of John 13:26 as “bread”, and in doing so, throws one of the biggest prophecy clues right out the window. Yes, a sop is a piece of bread – BUT – it is much more than that. Bread is just bread , but a sop is a clue.
S = Son | O = Of | P = Perdition. Bam! After 23 years of knowing this and teaching this to people it still sends chills down my spine. God is so good.” Geoffrey Grider, NTEB, September 16, 2015.
Five years later, Geoffrey Grider claimed: “French President Emmanuel Macron remains in first place in the end times ‘man of sin’ sweepstakes.” Geoffrey Grider NTEB, August 7, 2020.
7 weeks later, Grider is now proclaiming President Macron is the anti-Christ: “Slowly and over time, the whole world is getting quite comfortable with the idea of Emmanuel Macron as the Antichrist, imagery that has always followed him around but in this crazy year of 2020, is reaching epic proportions. And rightly so, for his time is almost here now, as he prepares to transition from being the president of France to the biblical man of sin.” Geoffrey Grider, NTEB, October 28, 2020.
After claiming Emmanual Macron is the anti-Christ, Grider now states: “It is our contention that Emmanuel Macron of France is indeed the biblical man of sin from 2 Thessalonians 2, maybe we’re right and maybe we’re not…” Geoffrey Grider, NTEB, March 13, 2021.
I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran. I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in My counsel, And had caused My people to hear My words, Then they would have turned them from their evil way. And from the evil of their doings. Jeremiah 23:21-22.
There is Zero Accountability Within the Popular Ministries for Geoffrey Grider
Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them. For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple. Romans 16:17-18.
For some reason Geoffrey Grider, who has a successful ministry, is “protected” in that he seems to be able to get away with all sorts of disinformation, constant fear-mongering, false teaching including The Gap Theory, There Are Two Gospels (see `There Is Only One Gospel’), Jesus Went To Hell, The Nephilim Are Coming Back in UFO’s, false prophecies, name calling, posting shocking graphics depicting Jesus as a transgender wearing a dress, the anti-Christ with a bow depicted as Jesus Christ, the uncensored movieclips ‘Rocketman’ and Cadbury’s Creme Egg advert promoting homosexuality, without anyone batting an eye.
Success in ministry does not necessarily mean they’re doing God’s work. Statistics are no proof that something is of God, because “…many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed” 2 Peter 2:2.
There Is Only One Gospel
“You cannot find me ONE verse in all the Bible where Paul connects works with the born again believer’s salvation, only to their inheritance at the Judgment Seat of Christ. But for the Tribulation saint, without maintaining works pleasing to the Lord they cannot be saved.” Geoffrey Grider, NTEB, May 8, 2017.
The Word of God refutes the damnable heresy, there are two gospels, taught by Geoffrey Grider, Peter Ruckman, Robert Breaker, Gene Kim and Les Feldick etc.
I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed. Galatians 1:6-9.
Then I saw another angel flying directly overhead, with an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tribe and language and people. Revelation 14:6.
“Where Did the OT Saints Go At Death?
Before Jesus died on the cross and opened the gates of Heaven, where did people go when they died? What is Abraham’s Bosom?”
As it s only by Jesus’ finished work on the cross that anyone, in any time period, goes to Heaven. That includes Old Testament saints. They did not go to Heaven when they died, because Jesus had not come to earth and lived the life we could not live and died the death we should have died. His work, alone, opened the way to the Father in Heaven.
Old Testament Salvation
While people in the Old Testament were saved by the grace of God when they trusted in Him, their sins were not yet washed away (atoned for) by the blood of Jesus. After God delivered His people from Egypt, and when He first set them on a journey to their inheritance in the Promised Land, He gave them a system of animal sacrifice to be a blood offering to cover their sins. However, the blood of an animal could never fully atone for the sins of man, and the works of man (including sacrificial works) could never fully satisfy God. Therefore, it was necessary that a day would come when God would send His Son, to be incarnated as a man, to live a pure and sinless life, and to die as the perfect Lamb of God who would take away the sins of the world (John 1:29).
In the wilderness God had told His people that the life of man is in the blood (Leviticus 17:11) and therefore only by the blood of a man could the wrath of God’s judgment of sin be satisfied and the penalty for sin be paid. And, it had to be pure, sinless blood. Only Jesus could be that sacrifice and so He laid down His life in submission to His Father’s will and His blood was acceptable in God’s sight.
So where did Old Testament saints go before Jesus’ finished work?
We know that only Jesus is “the way, the truth and the life” and that “no man cometh unto the Father, but by [Jesus].” (John 14:6) Prior to Jesus’ atonement, the way to the Father was not open. Therefore, Old Testament saints went to a place called Abraham’s Bosom.
In Luke 16, Jesus describes two distinctly different places, where man’s soul went at death:
the place of comfort called Abraham’s Bosom and
the place of torment that we refer to as Hell.
1) Abraham’s Bosom Was Not Heaven.
Heaven is defined as the place where God dwells. Geographically we think of it as being “up above,” beyond the heaven that we see, the one in which birds and airplanes fly. The place where God dwells is even beyond the heavens in which the sun, moon, and stars exist. God’s dwelling place is considered to be the highest of heavens (Luke 19:38), the “Heaven of heavens” (Deuteronomy 10:14, 1 Kings 8:27) and is referred to in the Bible as the third heaven (2 Corinthians 12:2).
Where was Abraham’s Bosom?
Abraham’s Bosom was located “down below” the heavens in the depths of the earth. Jesus referred to it as the “heart of the earth” (Matthew 12:40) and it was the abode of the righteous dead prior to Jesus’ resurrection. Jesus also referred to this place as “paradise,” when He promised the thief on the cross next to Him that he would be with Him that same day, in paradise. (Luke 23:43)
What was Abraham’s Bosom?
Abraham’s Bosom was a place of comfort and it was a place of waiting. The sins of Old Testament saints were remitted by the Levitical system of atonement using the blood of animals. Since this was not sufficient to completely atone for sins, those who died in faith went to Abraham’s Bosom and waited until the time their sins would be paid for completely. They waited for the promised Seed, the Rescuer, the One who was promised in the Garden (Genesis 3:15, Galatians 4:4) to their father Abraham (Genesis 22:17-18, Galatians 3:16) and promised again to their most exalted earthly King, King David (2 Samuel 7:12-16, Acts 13:21-23).
When Jesus offered Himself in payment for the penalty of man’s sins, His shed blood made the complete and final atonement for sins. And, when Jesus ascended into Heaven, He led the Old Testament saints from Abraham’s Bosom to their new dwelling place with Him (Ephesians 4:8) in the Heaven of heavens.
2) The Other Place
Since the time of Jesus’ ascension, there now only remains the place of torment within the earth. We call this place “hell,” which is a translation of the Hebrew word “sheol” (meaning the world of the dead, the grave or the pit) and the Greek word “Hades” (meaning the place of departed souls, the grave). Remember, prior to Jesus’ ascension into Heaven both Abraham’s Bosom and the place of torment existed in the earth as the place of the dead. Since Jesus’ ascension, only one place remains Hell. That is why, when we refer to Hell now, we are referring to the place of torment only.
The place of torment is similar to Abraham’s Bosom in that it is a temporary abode for the unrighteous dead (Abraham’s Bosom was the temporary abode for the righteous dead until the saints were fully redeemed). In the place of torment, the unrighteous await a final judgment that is yet to come, which is referred to as the Great White Throne Judgment in Revelation 20:11-15. At that time, all the souls in the place of torment will be bodily raised and judged. They will go to their eternal destination, which the Bible calls the Lake of Fire (Revelations 20:15). The Lake of Fire is certainly not a place of comfort and rest.
In Abraham’s Bosom, the Old Testament saints were comforted by Father Abraham, but now they are in the comfort and rest of God the Father—the God whom the Old Testament saints knew as the God of their forefathers. Heaven is the eternal resting place of all who die in faith, having had their sins forgiven and washed away by the blood of Jesus. The Old Testament saints awaited Jesus’ atonement and then were taken there. New Testament saints, those who live in the age of the Christian Church go immediately to be with Jesus in Heaven. (2 Corinthians 5:8) at the time of death.” S.Abbott, Reasons for Hope.
Offspring Of Fallen Angels And Human Women Who Become Physical Giants is a Satanic Deception
And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15.
In his news snippets concerning UFO sightings and extraterrestrials, Geoffrey Grider, who is preoccupied with offspring of fallen angels and human women returning in UFO’s, wrote: “Time was, people would say “what are you, an idiot? Space aliens aren’t real”, now the same people say “what are you, an idiot? Everyone know space aliens are already here“. And guess what? They absolutely are, only they are not space aliens, they are the offspring of the Genesis 6 giants. Jesus said they would come back right before the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble, which will commence when the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church takes place. When is that? In about 5 seconds, so you might want to be sure you’re ready to fly.” NTEB, April 21, 2021.
“Of course, what they don’t know is that what they are encountering are not space aliens at all, they are the fallen angels connected with the Genesis 6 giants. Welcome back, we who believe the bible have been expecting your return.” NTEB, May 1, 2021.
“On this episode of the NTEB Prophecy News Podcast, we are about 2 weeks away from the official and highly-anticipated Pentagon report on UFOs or, as they like to call them, Unidentified Aerial Phenomena. The latest wrinkle in this ongoing and stunning development is video of UFOs that are transmedium, meaning they can fly in Outer Space, they can fly in the clouds, and without missing a beat, they can dive underwater and travel at speeds of over 230 miles per hour. Underwater. Let that, pun intended, sink in for a moment. Are you ready for the return of the fallen angels and the Genesis 6 Giants? You better be, because here they come.” NTEB, May, 24, 2021.
“For number of years now, and certainly over the past 6 months or so, we have been warning you to get ready for the return of the fallen angels and the Genesis 6 giants. Jesus Himself tells us that the time of Jacob’s trouble will see a return of the giants, just as it was in the days of Noah…but – will we see the giants? I am thinking yes we will. Get ready.” NTEB, June 8, 2021.
Many heavyweights within the Christian community including Chuck Missler 1934-2018, Koinonia House, Terry James, Rapture Ready, Bill Perkins, author and speaker, Gary Stearman, Prophecy in the News, L. A. Marzulli, author, lecturer and film-maker, Thomas Horn, author and Stephen Quayle, author, teach these salacious sci-fi scenarios by twisting the Scriptures to suit their own agenda, most especially Genesis Chapter 6 – into a myth focused upon demonic hordes returning to earth through unseen portals in the heavenlies.
In his book, “The Mysteries of the Planet Mars, Alien Encounters and Return of the Nephilim,” Chuck Missler misled his followers with the utter nonsense that aliens are absolutely real, when he wrote: “The Nephilim are supernatural monstrosities created eons ago when fallen angels mated with human women. Their existence inspired God to cleanse the earth with the flood, but now they’re coming back as ET’s, reseeding earth women for dark purposes that predicate the imminent final battles.” He also claimed that when the Nephilim died in the flood it was their demonic spirits within them that arose to become the spaceship aliens.
Furthermore, Chuck Missler served as a special advisor for the New World Order SWANsat satellite project designed to track the world’s populace: “The SWANsat Project will place a constellation of three high-powered satellites into operation: One spacecraft will serve Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and western Asia. One spacecraft will serve North, Central, and South America. One spacecraft will serve central and east Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and the central Pacific. When operated together, all three spacecraft will provide coverage of the entire globe, except for polar areas.” — https://documents.pub/document/chuck-missler-council-for-national-policy-swansatas-satellite-services-will.html
In his article “Nephilim and the Modern Days of Noah,” Terry James, co-founder and general editor of RaptureReady.com wrote: “…My novel series, “Second Coming Chronicles,” “The Rapture Dialogues,” and the second novel, “The Nephilim Imperatives” deal in a fictional way with the topics involved with the nephilim, but from a solid, biblical perspective…
The bene elohim (sons of God) looked upon the flesh-and-blood daughters of men, and came to earth to have sexual relations with them. The offspring of these unions are the “nephilim.” For the sake of space limitations, I suggest you read the account in Genesis, Chapter 6. 2) The same passages tell us that violence filled the whole earth at the time these nephilim roamed the earth. These beings were part supernatural, part human. They were called by Scripture “giants”. They performed spectacular feats in their day, the Genesis account tells us. These are the beings, it is believed, that inspired the legends of Greek, Roman, Norse, and other mythologies, including Zeus, Apollo, Hercules, Prometheus, Thor, etc.–all the gods and demigods that traversed the pages of literature some of us read about in our high school and college days…
In my own case of writing on the topic, I can only say that I sense an urging that I believe is from God, the Holy Spirit, to address this topic that has until now been for the most part left out of the dialogue in eschatology (the study of end things). I believe others are getting the same prompting by the Lord to make this whole UFO thing a part of the mix of things to come…” https://terryjamesprophecyline.com/2014/10/23/nephilim-and-the-modern-days-of-noah/
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. 2 Timothy 4:3-4.
Matthew 24:38 reveals four things that will be taking place on the earth prior to Jesus` Second Coming: mankind will be “eating,” “drinking,” “marrying,” and “being given in marriage.” There is no mention of any demonic hordes returning to earth! The clear implication of these sobering passages is that people—sinners—will be doing normal things up until the time judgment comes. They won’t be prepared for what happens very quickly—like the flood waters that overtook the men and women of Noah’s day. The details for this judgment are found in the Book of Revelation— offspring of wicked angels and human women who became physical giants are conspicuously absent from all twenty-two chapters.
“Genesis 6 – Who Are The Sons of God?
Genesis 6:1-8 says, “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.”
The emphasis in the above passage is upon man and his wickedness — not upon the wickedness of angels. “When MEN began to multiply on the face of the earth, and DAUGHTERS WERE BORN UNTO THEM…” The phrase which people wonder about being angels is the phrase “the sons of God.” But when you consider the whole Book of Genesis, the words “angel” and “angels” appear many times. The word “angel” appears in the Book of Genesis 11 times, and the word “angels” appears 4 times.
There is a saying about Bible interpretation which goes something like this, “If the literal sense makes common sense, then seek no other sense.” In other words, do not try and read more into a passage than is there. Case in point, I do not know of anyone who has ever read Genesis 6, and interpreted it as angels committing immorality with women, and thus producing a race of giants. People only wonder about that after someone suggests the thought. But upon the first reading of that chapter, I do not think that anyone has ever come up with that idea. That alone gives you a clue that it is not a natural interpretation of that passage.” Except from Liberty Gospel Tract
The heresy of fallen angels and human women producing giants is contained in the blasphemous Book of 1 Enoch, Chapter 6.
“1 And it came to pass, when the sons of men had increased, that in those days there were born to them fair and beautiful daughters.
2 And the Angels, the sons of Heaven, saw them and desired them. And they said to one another: “Come, let us choose for ourselves wives, from the children of men, and let us beget, for ourselves, children.”
3 And Semyaza, who was their leader, said to them: “I fear that you may not wish this deed to be done and that I alone will pay for this great sin.”
4 And they all answered him, and said: “Let us all swear an oath, and bind one-another with curses, so not to alter this plan, but to carry out this plan effectively.”
5 Then they all swore together and all bound one another with curses to it.
6 And they were, in all, two hundred and they came down on Ardis, which is the summit of Mount Hermon. And they called the mountain Hermon because on it they swore and bound one another with curses.
7 And these are the names of their leaders: Semyaza, who was their leader, Urakiba, Ramiel, Kokabiel, Tamiel, Ramiel, Daniel, Ezeqiel, Baraqiel, Asael, Armaros, Ananel, Zaqiel, Samsiel, Satael, Turiel, Yomiel, Araziel.
8 These are the leaders of the two hundred Angels and of all the others with them.”
Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, not giving heed to Jewish fables and commandments of men who turn from the truth. Titus1:13-14.
Peter Ruckman – Racist & Dangerous Deceiver
These are spots in your love feasts, while they feast with you without fear, serving only themselves. They are clouds without water, carried about by the winds; late autumn trees without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots; Jude 1:12.
Can two walk together, unless they are agreed? Amos 3:3.
On April 21, 2016, Geoffrey Grider/NTEB wrote, “PETER RUCKMAN WAS, WITHOUT A DOUBT, ONE OF THE FINEST BIBLE TEACHERS THE LORD EVER PUT ON THIS EARTH. HE BELIEVED THE BOOK, AND DIDN’T THINK HE OR ANYONE ELSE HAD THE RIGHT TO ‘MESS WITH IT’.
It must have been sometime back in the mid-90’s, when I was introduced to a brother by the name of Scott Lyman. Scott attended a small Baptist church near where I lived, and he was excited to hand me a Bible teaching cassette tape from someone by the name of Peter Ruckman of Pensacola, Florida. That was my introduction to the ‘good doctor’ of scripture.
Over the years, I would purchase many such tapes from Dr. Ruckman, then DVD’s, and finally an entire library shelf of Bible commentaries.”
By his own admission, Grider is well versed in Ruckman’s “biblical truths.”
A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks. Luke 6:45.
“Peter Ruckman reveals the only reason he did not join the KKK, but otherwise agrees with everything they say
The Ku Klux Klan’s like that. I’ll tell you why I never joined the Ku Klux Klan. It’s because they’re anti-semitic. And that’s the only reason I didn’t join. [laughs heartely] I mean, I agree with everything else they say. But the trouble is when you get out that way, that extreme right-wing, you begin to turn against that Jew, and I ain’t gonna turn against that Jew.”
There is nothing else Ruckman said about the KKK in the context. The video can be seen on Youtube (the statements can be found at the 22-minute mark). “Dr. Ruckman 1993 Questions and Answers” https://youtu.be/jUC-1D4DTP8
You may think that since Ruckman is against anti-semitism, and the Jews are God’s chosen people, that he would speak kindly of them overall (with allowance for disagreements over doctrinal differences of course). But notice what he says two minutes later in the same video, but also how he manages to slip in a suttle jab at another race and we all know who it is:
[24 minute mark] “But, because God chose him you have to love him [the Jew], you have to love him. And if you don’t, God will bless them that bless thee, and curse them that curse thee, so you gotta be careful. And it’s kinda hard to be careful. I don’t know if you have–you don’t have a lot of Jews in North Carolina, or at least back in the mountains you don’t. And if you do, they behave themselves, ’cause they’re kind of outnumbered. But ah, but you take a city Jew, a citified Jew like Chicago, or New York, they are the most repulsive people in this world, man! I guess, out of sight of another group I know of. (chuckles) The closest I ever came to hitting a fella was a Jewish pawn broker in Chicago.
Any child of God who is familiar with the history and reputation of the KKK should be disgusted by Ruckman’s statement that he agrees with everything else the KKK says except for their views on a group that two minutes later he describes as “the most repulsive people in this world” (outside of another group)! This was not a laughing matter, regardless of the race in question. Yet Ruckmanites continue to make light of it such as declaring that it’s no big deal because everyone knows no one is perfect. However—the Bible teaches, “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them” (Romans 16:17). It is high time that the Bible admonition be taken seriously in this matter.” https://www.ruckmanism.org/peter-ruckman-reveals-the-only-reason-he-did-not-join-the-kkk-but-otherwise-agrees-with-everything-they-say
At the 25 minute mark of this video Ruckman’s evil remarks and actions reveal his hatred for the Jewish people when he showed his affection for German military marching bands, German soldiers, and then moves the podium to demonstrate the goose step associated with Nazi Germany. And how he played a German military marching band recording, which he had mixed using a deck of playing cards to create the sound of jack boots hitting the ground, for a blind Jewish man that he didn’t like just to make him sweat.
For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord, and because of these abominations the Lord your God drives them out from before you. Deuteronomy 18:12.
Like Ruckman, Geoffrey Grider shows no love for the Jewish people: “You will be banned if…you use anti-semitic language. You don’t have to love the Jews, just respect them.” Now The End Begins, Comment Policy.
Further evidence of Peter Ruckman’s racist remarks can be found in his Ruckman Referense Bible, 2009. It should come as no surprise that Grider is now offering this Reference Bible free of charge, as he considers it to be the best Bible Commentary ever produced.
“We had been giving out nice, quality King James Bibles for free for awhile, and people seemed to like them. But the bible I really wanted to put into people’s hands was the Ruckman Reference Bible, something that I personally consider to be the best commentary bible ever produced. But they are not cheap, with even the plain paper ‘economy’ model starting at $24.95, and I just didn’t have the funds for that. But I prayed about it, and lo and behold, an on-fire NTEB reader sent me in a check for $1,000 for the “free bible program”. Wow, I was floored. It wasn’t really a program, just something God put on my heart to do, but here was a nice-sized check for the “free bible program”, and that could only mean one thing. Ruckman Reference bibles! Right away, I called my friends at the Bible Baptist Bookstore in Pensacola, and ordered a bunch of cases of RRB’s, and when they arrived a few days later we started packing them up and sending them out. Exciting stuff!”Geoffrey Grider, NTEB, May 22, 2020.
Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds. 2 John:9-11.
Ruckman Reference Bible, 2009, Genesis, notes in the body of the text:
“As expected, Ruckman starts off teaching the gap theory in Genesis 1, lamenting that people even call it a theory. By Genesis 2 he is already teaching that Adam’s salvation was by works. He calls all teaching to the contrary regarding Old Testament salvation “irreligious claptrap.” In this same chapter he is already into racist jabs, stating: “In northern Alabama, Negros used to eat red clay out of the clay hills on Sunday afternoon with spoons to get back their original color.” In chapter 3 he is teaching that the lack of sweat due to air-conditioning is causing people’s bodies to be full of poison by the age of forty, in which circumstance we can only survive with medicines and operations. Ruckman starts chapter four with his wondering imagination stating: “This means that the Bible implies, without stating it directly, that some kind of a sexual union could have taken place between Eve and the ‘angel of light’ (see 2 Cor. 11:14).” Under Genesis 8:21 Ruckman has a comment which is characteristic of his twisted view of God: “The printed record that God gives of what he thinks about you is the greatest ‘hate literature’ ever assembled on earth.” Under Genesis 10:2, he has a list as to what people from different nationalities and races have been labeled. Some of the labels are non-offensive, while others are unchristian [absolute wickedness]….”Black man is a ‘n*,’ ‘J*****-b****,’ or ‘P****-m*****.’” https://www.ruckmanism.org/rr

Promoting Ruckman’s racist and heretical Reference Bible as “the best Commentary Bible ever produced” is just one more reason to shun Geoffrey Grider and so deliver your soul out of his dangerous snares.

Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, 1 Timothy 4:1.
Anti-semetic, white supremist Peter Ruckman, as with most cult leaders taught many “doctrines of demons” including:
We believe that history is absolute proof that “race-mixers” are mentally sick (Deut. 32:8). (Peter Ruckman, Twenty-Two Years of the Bible Believers’ Bulletin Volume #7 Strictly Personal. 2004, p. 112)
The serpent seed heresy, Satan committed adultery with Eve: “The verses [2 Corinthians 11:2-3] IMPLY (see John 8:44 and 1 John 3:12) that some type of sexual transaction took place between Eve and Satan. Whatever it was, it affected her body fluids, and it caused a conception, if it happened.” (Peter Ruckman’s Bible References: Personal Notes on Salient Verses in the Bible, p. 278)
All women in the Church Age will receive thirty-three year old male bodies at the Rapture: “Since every Christian in the Body of Christ has a MAN inside him (or her) (Col. 1:27; John 1:12) and is PREDESTINATED to be conformed to the image of that man (2 Cor. 4:4; Rom. 8:29; 1 John 3:1-4; Phil. 3:21), there is no question at all about the future state of every Christian in the Body of Christ, except in the minds of Hebrew and Greek professors and the “vast majority of conservative, Bible-rejecting blockheads.” The believer will appear in glory as a 33-year old sinless male.” (Peter Ruckman, 22 Years of the Bible Believer’s Bulletin Vol. 1 “The AV Holy Bible” p. 110)
The plan of salvation for Tribulation saints is faith plus works and the plan of salvation in the Millennium is works alone: “Before the Rapture, you could have been saved by grace through faith plus nothing (Ephesians 2:8-9), but one minute after the Rapture took place you must get out the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule and start learning them, because you’re going to be judged by them (Matthew 25:31-46).” (Peter Ruckman, Millions Disappear. 1989, p. 23)
Ruckman’s teaching of six different plans of salvation in the Book of Acts alone: “The book of Acts consistently presents the same keys, the same plan of salvation. It does if you are as blind as blind Bartimaeus on a weekend drunk—just as blind as a bat backing into a blizzard. There are SIX “plans of salvation” in the book of Acts, as God continued to reveal more light on “the gospel of the grace of God” (Acts 20:24) (which was not revealed to Peter; it was revealed to Paul—Gal. 1, 2). Peter himself testifies to Paul’s “plan of salvation” in Acts 15:11. Read it. I said, “Read it.” Read it or shut your big, tongue-wagging blabber mouth.”
Salvation by repentance and water baptism with NO tongues as evidence in a single convert (Acts 2:38).
Salvation by belief and water baptism without any convert speaking in tongues (Acts 8:12).
Salvation by grace through faith before water baptism or tongues (Acts 10:44).
Salvation by grace through faith after water baptism (Acts 19:2–6).
Salvation by belief and baptism without getting the Holy Spirit (Acts 8:16).
Salvation by grace through faith without tongues or water baptism (Acts 8:37) and without tongues or laying on of hands (Acts 8:38).” (Bible Believers’ Bulletin January. 2007, p. 16)
“When the believer is born again, his soul is literally cut loose from the inside of his fleshly body: “In a saved man, the Holy Spirit has cut the flesh away from the soul and spirit (see Col. 2:11-13). That body has a spirit connected with it that is different from the new spirit that lives inside of you.” (Peter Ruckman, The Book of Romans: The Bible Believer’s Commentary Series. Pensacola, FL: BB Bookstore, 2003, p. 265)
Sexual unions constitute marriage in God’s sight: “Flesh joining flesh” makes a man and woman, “man and wife” (Matt. 19:4-6; 1 Cor. 6:16; Eph. 5:31).
(Peter Ruckman, The Ruckman Reference Bible, 2009, p. 499)
The flood mentioned in 2 Peter 3 is not Noah’s flood but is one that supposedly occurred at the judgment of the earth, when Satan was cast out of Heaven [The Gap Theory]. He admits that no other Bible teacher has held this view: “Now who could get a message so simple all muddled up? Answer: Every major fundamental Bible scholar and teacher in the United States, without one exception. If you were to ask Henry Morris what the verses refer to he’d say Noah’s flood.” (Peter Ruckman, The Unknown Bible, p. 67)
Ruckman’s teaching is similar to Mormon doctrine: “God has ordained on this earth 12 boundaries, with 12 nations, who are destined to leave this earth (transported by angels– Luke 16:22), and populate outerspace infinitely and forever, beginning with the 12 constellations that are seen on the earth once every 12 months.” (Peter Ruckman, The Unknown Bible, p. 588)
“In eternity, THE CHRISTIAN IS IN NEW JERUSALEM; he is in his apartment house that is made out of transparent gold, like clear glass. … He is called out on trips, and these trips take him to Mars, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Uranus, etc. transporting couples into gardens placing them down and saying, ‘be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth.“ (Peter Ruckman, The Unknown Bible, p. 592)
In his 1996 book Black Is Beautiful, Ruckman claims that UFOs are real. Ruckman believes that some of the medieval plagues in Europe were caused by UFOs, that a B-52 bomber was downed by a UFO and that aliens disemboweled the crew members, and that a crew member of a US Navy ship was transported into the future. He believes the CIA has implanted brain transmitters in children, old people, blacks, and prisoners (p. 243) and operates underground alien breeding facilities (p. 256). He believes in Atlantis (p. 171) and the Bermuda Triangle, time warps (p. 160), creatures with one eye (p. 173), web footed aliens, blue aliens with blue blood (pp. 85, 86), black aliens with green blood (p. 244), and grey aliens with clear blood (pp. 310-11). He believes that Adam originally had water in his veins instead of blood (p. 185). He believes that the government is involved with UFO animal mutilations (p. 247). He believes that black helicopters carrying UN troops are “circling your homes” with the mission of attacking and imprisoning the populace (p. 233). He believes the U.S. federal government has kidnapped people and kept them alive in “amber liquid” (p. 230). He believes that the CIA flies around in space ships developed from technology gained when the government made a deal with aliens to allow them to kidnap children and use their organs as food and to experiment on U.S. citizens (pp. 291, 295-297).
The following is an except from an expose’ of Peter Ruckman’s heresies, by Neil Rivalland:
“Ruckman resorts to vicious badgering and name calling for those who do not submit to his authority. In the book ‘Problem Texts’ he uses curse words and vile language to castigate all the major Bible schools and seminaries in America. All who do not agree with him are the “Alexandrian Cults,” “Heretics,” “Apostates,” etc. In one of his books, he describes himself creeping into a church basement with blackened face, grenades in hand to blow apart the apostates. It sounds the same as Benny Hinn wanting to blow away all his critics with a “holy ghost machine gun.””
Peter Ruckman was a dangerous heretic. Being of reprobate mind, he twisted the teaching of Scripture to suit his own purpose and in the process has built up a cult following. Most notably Geoffrey Grider, Sam Gipp, Robert Breaker, Eugene Kim and Bryan Denlinger, who like their mentor, are known for their arrogance, nastiness, and argumentative spirit.
It should be noted that many of Geoffrey Grider’s “NTEB Rightly Dividing Radio Bible Studies” and “The NTEB House Church Sunday Service” derive from Peter Ruckman’s heresies.
A Planed Deception
Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. 1 John 2:18.
The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it? Jeremiah 17:9.
On August 2, 2020, Geoffrey Grider/NTEB posted a blasphemous graphic ‘When King Jesus Cometh’ depicting the anti-Christ with a bow as Jesus Christ at His second coming, when promoting his NTEB “Bible study – The likely path that King Jesus will take at His second coming…”
Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.” And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. Revelation 6:1-2.
After recognizing this “error” John Christopher Sanchez posted the following comment on NTEB:
“Very cool. Looking forward to this…One quick thing; when I saw this picture for the article; our King has a sword per the Book of Revelation, not a bow when He returns. The bow is actually what the horseman of the apocalypse brings, and if I’m not mistaken that’s supposed to be tied to Death/antichrist.”
Geoffrey Grider, owner of Mudflower Graphic Designs, totally ignored the fact that his blasphemous graphic depicted the anti-Christ not Jesus Christ when he responded with the following misleading statement.
“Yes, you are right! I scoured the internet for a while trying to find an image of what the BIBLE says, and they really don’t exist. And that’s WHY people think that angels have wings, they don’t, because artists have drawn it wrong for so long. Good catch!”
Grider has to deny that Seraphims are angels, as they have wings (Isa. 6:2). Note also that Dan. 9:21 and Rev. 14:6 describes an angel flying.
John Christopher Sanchez’s reply to Grider’s nonsensical response clearly revealed the cult-like control Grider has over his followers. And once again nobody bats an eye.
“Bro Geoff, please forgive me for gettin’ on ya with that. It’s the written content that counts. Your stuff is on point, Praise The Lord. I was just being a stickler…”
To defend this blatant false prophet’s blasphemous graphic and his unbiblical teachings is cultic. Body of Christ, take a stand for what is right and side with the Word of God!
As of June 22, 2021, this blasphemous graphic has not been deleted from Grider’s website, which is further evidence that this was not by accident, but by design.
God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints. 1 Corinthians 14:33.
When exposing the false teaching of purgatory, Geoffrey Grider referred to the unbiblical Apocrypha as “a piece of trash”: “Now, please turn in your King James Bible and let’s look at the doctrine of purgatory. Umm…no, you’ll not find it in either Testament for it exists only in the teachings of the ‘early church fathers’ in a piece of trash known as the unbiblical Apocrapha.” Geoffrey Grider, NTEB, June 3, 2018.
Two and a half years later, after referring to the unbiblical Apocrypha as “a piece of trash,” Geoffrey Grider posted a graphic promoting his “NTEB Radio Bible Study – Enduring Sound Doctrine,” depicting a page of the unbiblical Apocrypha book 11 Maccabees and the heretical Ruckman Reference Bible.
Back in 2014, Geoffrey Grider posted an article titled, `THE AMAZING STORY OF HANUKKAH AND THE ENDLESS MIRACLE OIL’, this article was reposted on December 7, 2015.
“The miracle of the endless oil
…They [the Maccabees]began in the Temple, clearing it of all pagan idols and building a new altar. The golden Menorah has been stolen by the Syrians and Greeks so the Maccabees made a new one from what they could find. They wanted in light the Menorah to rededicate the Temple to the One True G-d. They rummaged though the ruins seeking a flask of sanctified oil, but all had been defiled. Finally, they found a small jug in which the Kohen seal was still intact.
They carefully poured the oil into their makeshift Menorah even though they realized that there was only enough oil for one day. They also realized that it would take eight days to sanctify more oil for the Temple. Nevertheless, the Maccabees had faith and dedicated the Holy Temple and lit the Menorah.
Then a great miracle occurred. The oil burned through the first night an on to the second, then on to the third. The oil continued to burn for eight nights until more oil was ready for the Temple. This miracle proved that G-d was with the Maccabee all along. They fought for what they believed and held fast in face of death with G-d at their side. Their faith in G-d and the Torah never wavered and G-d showed them His Divine presence.” Geoffrey Grider, NTEB, December, 13, 2014.
Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday not mentioned in the Holy Bible. The story of how Hanukkah came to be is contained in the unbiblical Apocrypha books 1 and 11 Maccabees and the Oral Babylonian Talmud.
Hanukkah in the Book of Maccabees https://galileeofthenations.com/blogs/knowledge-center/16674092-hanukkah-in-the-book-of-maccabees
“The Hasmoneans…searched and found only one small cruise of oil, hidden away under the seal of the High Priest. It contained but enough oil to light [the menorah] for one day. Yet a miracle occurred: the menorah was kindled from this oil for eight days. From then on, these days were set aside as a festive occasion for rendering praise [Hallel] and thanksgiving.” (Babylonian Talmud, Shabbat 21b)
“Problems in the Apocrypha:
When we look into the Apocrypha itself, we find numerous problems. For example, we see it advocating magic where the smoke of a fish heart on a fire drives away devils.
Condones the use of magic:
Tobit 6:5-7, “Then the angel said to him: Take out the entrails of this fish, and lay up his heart, and his gall, and his liver for thee: for these are necessary for useful medicines. 6 And when he had done so, he roasted the flesh thereof, and they took it with them in the way: the rest they salted as much as might serve them, till they came to Rages the city of the Medes. 7 Then Tobias asked the angel, and said to him: I beseech thee, brother Azarias, tell me what remedies are these things good for, which thou hast bid me keep of the fish? 8 And the angel, answering, said to him: If thou put a little piece of its heart upon coals, the smoke thereof driveth away all kind of devils, either from man or from woman, so that they come no more to them.”
Is it true that the smoke from a fish’s heart, when burned, drives away evil spirits? Of course not. Such a superstitious teaching has no place in the word of God.
Teaches that forgiveness of sins is by human effort. Salvation by works:
Tobit 4:11, “For alms deliver from all sin, and from death, and will not suffer the soul to go into darkness.”
Tobit 12:9, “For alms delivereth from death, and the same is that which purgeth away sins, and maketh to find mercy and life everlasting.”
We know from Scripture that alms (money or food given to the poor or needy as charity) does not purge our sins. The blood of Christ is what cleanses us – not money or food given to poor people. “But if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin,” (1 John 1:7).
Money as an offering for the sins of the dead:
2 Maccabbees 12:43, “And making a gathering, he sent twelve thousand drachms of silver to Jerusalem for sacrifice to be offered for the sins of the dead, thinking well and religiously concerning the resurrection.”
Can anyone truly accept that money is an offering for the sins of dead people? Such a superstitious and unbiblical concept has no place in Scripture.
Wrong historical facts:
Judith 1:5, “Now in the twelfth year of his reign, Nabuchodonosor, king of the Assyrians, who reigned in Ninive the great city, fought against Arphaxad and overcame him.”
Baruch 6:2, “And when you are come into Babylon, you shall be there many years, and for a long time, even to seven generations: and after that I will bring you away from thence with peace.”
The book of Judith incorrectly says that Nebuchadnezzar was the king of the Assyrians when he was the king of the Babylonians.
Baruch 6:2 says the Jews would serve in Babylon for seven generations where Jer. 25:11 says it was for 70 years. “And this whole land shall be a desolation and a horror, and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.”
Conclusion: Obviously, the Apocrypha has serious problems. From magic, to salvation by works, to money as an offering for the sins of the dead, and blatant incorrect historical facts – it is full of false and unbiblical teachings. It isn’t inspired by God.” Matt Slick, February 17, 2018.
Confession of a Heretic
For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. 1 John 2:16.
It is an undeniable fact that false teaching and sexual sin go hand in hand!
Exepts from ‘Is Sexual Purity Possible In A Hyper-Sexualized World?’ by Geoffrey Grider, NTEB, June 11, 2015.
“…there are two areas in my life where I do not do well. Everyone has besetting sins, but they don’t usually like to talk about them. No one enjoys discussing their failures.
My two main sin hotspots are sexual temptation and alcohol. I have done better with conquering alcohol than I have with resisting sexual temptation, but not by much. I will go for years at a time with never even one sip of alcohol, but invariably, a moment will arise even after years where I again find myself with a beer in my hand. Conviction sets in and the process of cleaning up starts again…
Sexually, I have been a mess since I was about 10 years old. It was an important year for me for two reasons. Its the age where I was introduced to “girlie magazines”, pornography, and it’s also the age where I was sexually assaulted by my closet homosexual piano teacher…
As my life progressed, sexual impurity was a constant companion. The world sees nothing wrong with this type of behavior, and in fact, applauds it and rewards it. Kim Kardashian became a multimillionaire after releasing a video of her having sex. Fornication. Sex sells just about everything we look at in magazines, on television, in the movies, and at the ball game. It’s anywhere and everywhere.
I got saved in 1990, and for the first time in my life I experienced what true forgiveness was all about. And for the first time since high school, I became sober and stopped fornicating. But the hooks that were put in at such a young age would not be removed so easily, and the struggle began. It is a struggle that endures now 25 years after receiving the Lord Jesus Christ as my Saviour…
The Bible is well aware of our struggle against sin, and acknowledges that it is no easy battle. When a person gets saved, sometimes the Lord just removes a certain sin from our life like it was never there. And other times, He for whatever His reasons are, will allow us to struggle with something because He knows it’s for our good and for His glory.
Today in 2015, I have come face to face with the reality that I have failed when it comes to the biblical command of sexual purity. And it grieves me to the point where the Lord has laid upon my heart to write this article. I have fornicated when the Bible has told me not to. I have sent and received sexually impure text and picture messages when the Bible has told me not to, and you know what? I am sick and tired of not getting the victory promised me as a Blood-washed Christian.
Geoffrey Grider contradicted himself when he wrote:
“The Bible tells us to come as we are for salvation, that’s absolutely true, but God in His mercy will never leave you as He found you. Part of the evidence of you salvation is a changed life, different desires, because God gives us a new heart.” Geoffrey Grider NTEB, March 14, 2019.
“Yes, come as you are 100% but you can’t stay that way.” Geoffrey Grider, NTEB, December 18, 2020.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17.
For those who have been deceived into following, supporting and promoting this blasphemous self-proclaimed preacher and Bible prophecy teacher, who places himself above the Word of God when declaring on a daily basis: “Now The End Begins [he] is your frontline defense in the rising tide of darkness in these last days before the Rapture of the Church,” the Word of God warns:
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10.
1 Corinthians 6:11 continues with: And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.
Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. Galatians 5:19-21.
Alcoholics Anonymous – Totally Demonic
Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch. Matthew 15:14.
Geoffrey Grider promotes Alcoholics Anonymous’ Big Blue Book and their 12 Step Program. As drunkenness is a sin and only the blood of Jesus sets the sinner free, this organization should be exposed, not promoted!
Now where between the pages of the Bible are we told that God works through manmade programs, distributing gifts of peace of mind, freedom, and joy. What happened to the Holy Spirit inspired truth, Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. (John 8:36). Is the peace, freedom, and joy He gives to his true followers so fragile, so inadequate, so weak that they must fill up the gap with satanic and demonic systems?
Alcoholics Anonymous` description and reasoning for the selection of the circle and triangle symbol to represent them sounds very much like the making of an occult ritual. This alone should raise a red flag.
“The equilateral triangle represents the three part answer- unity, recovery and service – to a three part disease- physical mental and spiritual, while the circle represents wholeness or oneness. The body should be triangle, stable, the mind circular, open. The triangle represents the means for generation of good energy, and is the most stable physical posture. The circle symbolizes serenity and perfection, and the source of limited potential. Together they represent the perfect union of mind and body.”
Alcoholics Anonymous and the occult by Chad Prigmore
“There is a very common misconception that Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) was Christian in origin. However, when those origins and the practices of its founders are examined, it becomes clear that AA has never been a Christian program. In fact, it originated from occultic practices.
The misunderstanding that AA was originally Christian usually arises from its being influenced by the quasi-Christian Oxford Group. A well-known sermon regarding the Oxford Group was preached by Pastor H.A. Ironside during the 1920’s, and a few excerpts from his sermon bring to light what this group actually believed and practiced:
“First Century Christianity emphasized with tremendous force the precious atoning blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, and as we come to examine the few books that have already been put before the public by the advocates of this latter day movement, we are struck at once by the fact that these great truths are practically absent. I have gone through book after book, supposedly setting forth the teaching of the Oxford Group Movement, and have not found one reference to the precious blood of Christ in any of them, nor any reference to the fact that the worst sin that anyone can possibly commit is the sin of rejecting the Lord Jesus Christ.”1
“Some of my friends who have had more intimate connection with it have said that again and again they have put the question to the advocates of the movement, “What place do you give to the atoning blood of Christ?” They have been answered evasively or, if not evasively, sometimes like this, “Oh, we are not a doctrinal movement, we are not advocating any view of the atonement, we are simply out to change the lives of people. It does not make any difference to us what they believe theologically as long as their lives are changed. If their lives are not changed, theological differences are of very small moment.””2
“There are some things about this movement that seem very commendable. One is what they call, “Waiting for guidance.” They place a great deal of emphasis on that. Each one is urged in the morning to sit down quietly with the mind emptied of every thought, generally with a pencil in hand, waiting for God to say something to them. They wait and wait and wait. Sometimes they tell me nothing happens, at other times the most amazing things come. Tested by the Word of God many of these things are unscriptural. They lay themselves open for demons to communicate their blasphemous thoughts to them. That is not the Christian way of getting guidance. What is the Christian way? It is to get alone with God over your Bible. Not to say, “Lord, speak to me in some strange, mysterious way,” but to say, “Lord, speak to me as I read Thy Holy Word.””3
For anyone who has spent time in the program of Alcoholics Anonymous, it is very interesting, when reading Pastor Ironside’s sermon, to notice the similarities between how he explains the teachings of the Oxford Group and the program of AA. In AA there is no mention of Jesus Christ or the atonement. The Oxford Group took a very human-centric approach of which the only thing that really mattered was helping people. The Alcoholics Anonymous program is also aimed at “helping people,” which sounds nice but without the gospel of Jesus Christ people are being helped to get sober but are led away from the truth. The Oxford Group, through emptying the mind and the practice of spirit writing, also resembles the AA’s “all inclusive-anything goes” spiritual atmosphere, which pervades the AA community. Spend any amount of time around the AA program and you will encounter everyone from atheists to Luciferians worshipping at the altar of a god of one’s own conception, as the Alcoholics Anonymous program so affectionately labels idolatry.4
In an effort by its proponents to paint AA as a program of Christian origin the claim is often made that Bill Wilson, the man who wrote the book Alcoholics Anonymous was a Christian. However, when Wilson’s writings and life are examined, this seems doubtful.
Alcoholics Anonymous was founded in 1935 by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith. The official AA biography of Bill Wilson, entitled Pass it On, speaks of the co-founders practicing séances and communing with demonic spirits while writing the program of Alcoholics Anonymous and the Twelve Steps. Bill Wilson explains one of their experiences with a Ouija board:
“The ouija board began moving in earnest. What followed was the fairly usual experience-it was a strange mélange of Aristotle, St. Francis, diverse archangels with odd names, deceased friends–some in purgatory and others doing nicely, thank you! There were malign and mischievous ones of all descriptions telling of vices quite beyond my ken, even as former alcoholics. Then, the seemingly virtuous entities would elbow them out with messages of comfort, information, advice—and sometimes just sheer nonsense.”5
Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith were originally introduced to each other in 1935 by a woman named Henrietta Seiberling. In a letter she wrote on July 31, 1952 she tells of Bill Wilson’s communion with demonic spirits during the time he was writing the Alcoholics Anonymous program,
“He imagines himself all kinds of things. His hand ‘writes’ dictation from a Catholic priest, whose name I forget, from the 1600 period who was in Barcelona, Spain-again, he told Horace Crystal he was completing the works that Christ didn’t finish, and according to Horace he said he was a reincarnation of Christ. Perhaps he got mixed in whose reincarnation he was. It looks more like the works of the devil but I could be wrong. I don’t know what is going on in that poor deluded fellow’s mind.”6
Even the symbol adopted by Alcoholics Anonymous, the triangle within a circle, is occultic in origin. Regarding the symbol, Bill Wilson stated,
“That we have chosen this symbol [for A.A.] is perhaps no mere accident. The priests and seers of antiquity regarded the circle enclosing the triangle as a means of warding off spirits of evil, and AA’s circle of Recovery, Unity, and Service has certainly meant all that to us and much more.”7
The above examples are just a few quotes from the literature used in the program of Alcoholics Anonymous of which the books Alcoholics Anonymous, Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions are the most commonly used. For any Christian involved in the AA program, it’s occultic origins should be of very grave concern. Christians should avoid the program.”

Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. Matthew 7:13-14.
Geoffrey Grider is not at all concerned with consistency in biblical doctrine, but rather being preoccupied with the sensational and the shocking, which in turn has drawn a cult following and an extremely bloated ego for himself and his followers. Those who closely follow Grider and allow themselves to be influenced by his teachings in a significant way will inevitably put him on a pedestal: “NTEB [Geoffrey Grider] is one of the best heavenly investments we can invest in next to our own personal heavenly rewards!” Ron, NTEB, October 6, 2020.
Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them. Matthew 7:15-20.
Not only does most of Geoffrey Grider’s doctrine fail the test of Scripture but his lifestyle shows the kind of fruit that Jesus declares would mark the life of a false prophet.
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil.
1 Corinthians 13:4-5.
Geoffrey Grider’s daily sensational news snippets are written with a sarcastic, boastful and angry tone: “I told you “- “see we were right” – “as we have told you” – “AWAKE YET?” – ”you need to wake up” -“Let these words sink in your brain” – ”OPEN YOUR EYES” – “get saved, or stay lost” – “now wrap your head around this” – “did you listen to me?” – “If you think you know the answer, you don’t.” – “listen to me and listen well, your eternity depends on it.” – “today we will present somethings to you that will blow your mind, whatever’s left of it by this point anyway.” Where is the love of Jesus? Not in Grider’s words! Not to mention, Grider like his mentor Peter Ruckman, is a dangerous heretic who is never, ever wrong and uses every opportunity to misrepresent or verbally abuse those who oppose his heresies.
Many of his followers who comment on a daily basis show they are of the same mindset with their ungodly name calling, fear-mongering, childish and crude poems, hateful remarks towards each other, foul language , date setting, false teachings, self-righteousness, endless debates trying to prove they know more than anyone else, creating disharmony, insulting those who are not King James Only and condemning those to hell who do not agree with them.
When referring to Geoffrey Grider’s NTEB website, Rapture Forums Administrator, mattfourfive, wrote:
“…NTEB (Now The End Begins) is just another fear-mongering conspiracy site…” Rapture Ready Forum, May, 18, 2020.
This administrator’s remarks are somewhat surprising as Rapture Ready Forums are part of RaptureReady.com a major promoter of Geoffrey Grider’s Now The End Begins website.
Fear-mongering is a well-calculated plan by false prophets to get those who do not know the Word of God to follow their “ministries” and websites. After all, fear is the master – fear motivates the deceived to donate to these charlatans. Now The End Begins and other non-Christian sites like this should be marked and avoided!
Moreover, the following comments posted by a member of the cultish “NTEB Family” are not only nonsense, but dangerous, as it is one more reason for people to mock Bible prophecy when his predictions continue to fail after claiming “God showed me.”
“I’m extremely intelligent and understand some of GOD’s deep things. Seek and you shall find. I’ve been seeking and finding. GOD keeps showing me deep things that average people cannot handle. I’ve mentioned around 10 Truths before including Rapture Day and I’ve been shot down all 10 times simply because average people cannot handle them.” KFC, NTEB, October 19, 2020.
“RAPTURE 2020!! RAPTURE 2020!! RAPTURE 2020!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
MARANATHA!!” KFC, NTEB, January 1, 2020.
“Rapture Day is next year sometime in May, stock up on food and water without delay,” KFC, NTEB, December 21, 2020.
“President Donald Trump’s final day in Office is on 19th January 2021. 20th January 2021 onwards will not be THE LAST TRUMP anymore. Rapture Day is POSSIBLE from today at the earliest to 19th January 2021 at the latest.” KFC, NTEB, January 13, 2021.
“The Church began on a Sunday almost 2000 years ago in the Upper Room. Today is the final Sunday of THE LAST TRUMP. The Church may end today in the Upper Atmosphere” KFC, NTEB, January 17, 2021.
“GOD showed me this in January 2021. I was saved when I was 6+ years young when GOD’s presence appeared to me in 1978 with a $50 bill on the ground. HE spoke to me and I answered HIM. Then HIS presence left and I picked up the $50 bill. It’s just like when GOD appeared to Moses with the burning bush. GOD showed me that the $50 bill represented my Jubilee year. My Jubilee year starts on 9th April 2021. Rapture Day must happen on my Jubilee year. Meaning 2021. Meaning around Shavuot 2021 or Pentecost 2021 sometime in May. I believe GOD. End of story. Rapture Day is WEEKS away. Stay safe and healthy until Rapture Day. God bless!!” KFC, NTEB, February 27, 2021.
21st May 2021 (Friday) ➡ Bookstore Celebration.
22nd May 2021 (Saturday) ➡ Camp Celebration.
23rd May 2021 (Sunday) ➡ PRE-TRIB RAPTURE” KFC , NTEB, May 18, 2021
He then wrote: “Don’t be disappointed next Monday if Rapture Day doesn’t happen on Sunday. Rapture Day will most probably be on Pentecost 2021 on 23rd May 2021 (Sunday) if GOD follows HIS PERFECT timing. Rapture Day can also be from today to 21st June 2021 (Monday) if GOD follows HIS FLEXIBLE timing during Spring 2021 according to Song Of Solomon. Yippy Skippy!!” KFC, NTEB, May 18, 2021.
Followed by: “Yes, I made ONE mistake about Rapture Day was going to happen on or around Feast of Trumpets 2020. This was because I did not have complete information in 2020. GOD showed me information in July 2020 but it was not complete. GOD only showed me complete information in January 2021. It’s a very long story!! LOL.” KFC, NTEB, MAY 21, 2021.
Therefore thus says the Lord God: “Because you have spoken nonsense and envisioned lies, therefore I am indeed against you,” says the Lord God. Ezekiel 13:8.
After spending time on NTEB, MAG wrote:
“I’ll never forget the belittling remarks and the HORRIBLE arguments I saw there. People claiming to be Christians but acting like absolute devils toward each other. Some of the people there really screwed me up, and as I result I’m afraid to read anybody’s replies towards me in case they’re as hateful and as belittling as the things people there said toward me and toward plenty of others. That’s why I rarely ever reply on here- it’s not out of intended rudeness, but I guess it’s more PTSD from my time on NTEB.” MAG, Rapture Forums, May 30, 2018.
Geoffrey Grider and his followers do not win other people over by hurling verbal insults and missiles at them, or by demeaning others and making them feel little. They do not win people to Christ by displaying a holier-than-thou attitude and an argumentative spirit. Infact, quite the opposite!
May the Living Lord Jesus Christ keep us in His truth when facing the realities of the days in which we live, as they are dangerous and evil. Let us follow on to know Him. If we obey His Word, we shall be spared from falling into the snares of the popular false prophets and teachers – controlled opposition.
But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 2 Timothy 3:13.
To those who have been deceived by Geoffrey Grider aka Pastor G, who now claims God spoke to him: “After our Wednesday night bible study wrapped up last night, I was shutting things down in the studio and praising God for everything He has been doing in my life and in the ministry He’s given me, when He quietly spoke to me something that truly amazed me. I was thanking Him for the great bible study, the hymns and praise music, all the prayer requests we lifted up to Him, and for the great truths He showed us from His word, when He said to me “these people are your congregation, and you’re their pastor.” (Geoffrey Grider, NTEB, November 5, 2020), the Word of God declares :
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Ba-li-al? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God: as God hath said I will dwell in them, and walk in them: and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord. II Corinthians 6:14-18.
If you do not know the Living Lord Jesus as your Saviour you can right now by repenting (having a change of mind), and putting your faith in Jesus Christ who paid the full penalty for the sins of the world by shedding His precious blood on the cross. Your trust in Him alone for your salvation can assure your receipt of this blessed atonement.
Nothing But The Blood Of Jesus – Lyrics
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
For my cleansing this I see—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
For my pardon this my plea—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
Nothing can my sin erase
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
Naught of works, ’tis all of grace—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
This is all my hope and peace—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
This is all my righteousness—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
