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
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.
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
Popular, self-proclaimed preacher and Bible prophecy teacher, Geoffrey Grider, has hinted at or named 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
But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.” Matthew 12:36-37
For some reason Geoffrey Grider is ‘protected’ in that he seems to be able to get away with all sorts of disinformation, fear mongering, false teaching (Ruckmanism) including, The Gap Theory, There are Two Gospels, Jesus Went to Hell, and the Nephilim Are Coming Back in UFO’s, false prophecies, name calling, posting blasphemous graphics depicting Jesus as a transgender wearing a dress, the anti-Christ with a bow depicted as Jesus Christ, the uncensored movieclip ‘Rocketman’ and Cadbury’s Creme Egg advert, which promote homosexuality, without anyone batting an eye.
Peter Ruckman – Racist & Dangerous Deceiver
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 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 11:13-15
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
It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Hebrews 10:31
At the 25 minute mark of this video Ruckman continued to 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. https://youtu.be/jUC-1D4DTP8
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. Sadly, 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
Ruckman Reference Bible, 2009, Genesis, notes in the body of the text:
“In Genesis 2 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….”Black man is a ‘n*,’ ‘J*****-b****,’ or ‘P****-m*****.’” https://www.ruckmanism.org/rr
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
Pray accordingly for the sincere, but sincerely deceived followers of NTEB, who are unaware when donating to his “free Bible program” they are enabling Grider to promote Ruckman’s racist remarks and heresies.
It is also a noticeable fact that Ruckman taught killing an unborn baby is not murder. Peter Ruckman’s Abortion Heresy Exposed. https://youtu.be/BW1BXJOCx2M
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
Peter Ruckman’s many doctrines of demons include:
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.” (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)
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 false teacher. In his unsound mind, he twisted the teaching of Scripture to suit his own purpose and in the process has built up a cult following, who like their mentor, are known for their arrogance, nastiness, and argumentative spirit.
It should be noted that most, if not all, of Geoffrey Grider’s “NTEB rightly dividing radio Bible studies” 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 reveal 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…”
But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 2 Timothy 3:13
As of January 24, 2021, this blasphemous graphic has not been removed 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
Exepts from ‘Is Sexual Purity Possible In A Hyper-Sexualized World?’ by Geoffrey Grider, NTEB, June 11, 2015.
Grider’s confession has been removed from his NTEB website.
“…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.”
Have you noticed that apostasy and sexual sin go hand in hand?
A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. James 1:8
Geoffrey Grider exposed 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 dangerous self-proclaimed preacher and Bible prophecy teacher who has placed himself above the Word of God and the Holy Spirit when proclaiming 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.”
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 5:19-2
Alcoholics Anonymous – Totally Demonic
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Ephesians 5:11-13
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!
Nowhere 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?
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
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.”

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
A wolf in sheep’s clothing symbolic for someone who outwardly looks harmless with good intentions but inwardly is full of hate, evil and deceit. This person seeks to twist truth and Scripture to fit their own agenda. They deceive their audience with false prophecy and teachings. Wolves teach false doctrine while appearing attractive.
And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. 2 Peter 2:2
Anyone who closely follows Grider and allows themselves to be influenced by his writings and “Bible studies” will inevitably succumb to his false teachings and 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.
Geoffrey Grider is an extremely arrogant false prophet (controlled opposition), whose sensational daily news snippets are written with a sarcastic, boastful, “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,” angry tone. Where is the love of Jesus? Not in Grider’s words! Not to mention, Grider, like his mentor Peter Ruckman, is never, ever wrong and uses every opportunity to misrepresent any opposition to his heresies.
Some NTEB followers who comment on a daily basis show they are of the same mindset with their ungodly name calling, hateful remarks towards each other, foul language, date setting, false teaching, self-righteousness, endless debates trying to prove they know more than anyone else and damning those to hell who do not agree with them.
When referring to one of many who post false teachings on the NTEB website, Rapture Forums Administrator, mattfourfive, wrote:
…”nuke your account at NTEB and never go back there (or any site like it) until you actually understand the Bible and its precious truth. Then you will be able to destroy the false doctrine of people like this Theophile without even breaking a sweat. I’m sorry if this sounds harsh, but your soul is too precious, too important to risk.” September 8, 2020
This administrator’s remarks are somewhat surprising as Rapture Forums are a part of Rapture Ready, a major promoter of Geoffrey Grider’s sensational news snippets.
Moreover, the following comments posted by a member of the cultish “NTEB Family” are not only foolishness, but dangerous, as it gives people one more reason to scoff at endtime Bible prophecy.
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.” DDN, NTEB, October 19, 2020.
“RAPTURE 2020!! RAPTURE 2020!! RAPTURE 2020!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
MARANATHA!!” DDN, NTEB, January 1, 2020.
“Rapture Day is next year sometime in May, stock up on food and water without delay,” DDN, 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.” DDN, NTEB, January 13, 2020.
“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” DDN, NTEB, January 17, 2021
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.
The previous information is only “the tip of the iceberg.
To those who have been deceived by Geoffrey Grider/”Pastor G,” who now claims: “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.
