A MESSAGE OF HOPE FROM DR JACK VAN IMPE
Revelation 11: 1 – 19
Chapter 11 deals with the spiritual life of Israel while chapter 12 describes her persecution. Since one needs a place for communication with God, we see that a Temple has been erected.
Verse 1: And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
The measuring reed, like unto a rod, is most likely from the brakes of the Jordan Valley and is probably about ten feet in length. Through the angel, John is told to measure the temple of God and the altar, as well as the people of Israel (concerning their spirituality).
The first place of worship ever built was called Solomon’s Temple and is discussed in 1 Chronicles, chapters 22, 28, and 29, and 2 Chronicles, chapters 2 through 7. This temple was destroyed by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon in approximately 590 B.C. Seventy years later it was rebuilt under Zerubbabel and Joshua. This second temple was desecrated by Antiochus Epiphanes, a Greco-Syrian ruler. He stuck a pig in the temple-an act which prefigured the final desecration to occur under Antichrist as he sets up the abomination of desolation in the Tribulation temple (Matthew 24:15).
Now we find that a third temple has been erected. It is probably not the final millennial Temple of Ezekiel 40 through 48, but one which is built during the Tribulation hour and used sacrilegiously by the beast who claims to be God (see 2 Thessalonians 2:4). This temple, its altar, and the attendants are Jewish. There is no outer court for Gentiles as there was in past temples.
Verse 2: But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread underfoot forty and two months.
Notice that this temple has nothing to do with the Church which is already in heaven (chapter 4, verse 1). It is for Jews, not Jews, Gentiles, and the church of God. In the second temple, rebuilt and enlarged by Herod the Great in 20 or 21 B.C., the outer court was marked off from the inner one where only Israel was permitted to enter. The courts were separated by the middle wall of partition (Ephesians 2:14), and no Gentile was allowed beyond that point. When the Apostle Paul broke this rule, angry Jews almost killed him. Crying out, Men of Israel, help: This is the man, that teacheth all men every where against the people, and the law, and this place: and further brought Greeks also into the temple, and hath polluted this holy place (Acts 21:28).
So as John measures the Tribulation temple, he is told to omit the outer court, undoubtedly because Gentiles will trample the Holy City (Jerusalem) under their feet for forty-two months.
There is no doubt about the literalness of this seven-year period. Daniel’s first sixty-nine weeks (see Daniel 9:24-26) totaled 483 years. We recall from our discussion in Chapter 6 that the term week is Shabua or Shabuim in the original Hebrew, and means “seven years.” Thus, sixty-nine multiplied by seven equals 483 years to the day. If this be so, why wouldn’t Daniel’s final, or seventieth, week also consist of seven years-or 2,520 days-as well? The formula is so clear that a child can grasp it. One half of 2,520 is 1,260 days-or forty-two months of thirty days each-or three and one-half years. Conversely, two times three and one-half years equals seven years-or eighty-four months of thirty days each-or 2,520 days. Don’t forget to take into account that the old Jewish calendar contained twelve months of thirty days each, not the 365 days of modem calendars. Is a seven-year plan scriptural then? We can check for ourselves because the days are mentioned in chapter 11, verse 3, and chapter 12, verse 6 as 1,260. Likewise, the months are mentioned in chapter 11, verse 2, and chapter 13, verse 5, as forty-two. Again we can easily see that 1,260 days multiplied by two equals 2,520 days, and that forty-two multiplied by two equals eighty-four months-one Shabua, or seven years. One does not have to be a mathematical wizard or a calculus genius to discover that the Tribulation is a full seven years in duration. Take it literally!
During the final half of the seven years, two witnesses appear.
Verse 3: And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
These two witnesses are God’s prophets, sent to proclaim His message of doom. They are clothed in sackcloth. In the Bible, sackcloth and ashes always picture repentance-and repentance is demanded when sin stalks a nation. Repentance is God’s call to either turn or burn. The witnesses are described in the next verse.
Verse 4: These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
Olive trees exude oil. Oil is a symbol of the Holy Spirit. Candlesticks are light bearers. Thus, we have a beautiful picture of two chosen witnesses, anointed by the power of the Holy Spirit, proclaiming the message of light in the midst of a sin-blackened world. There is no other way to do God’s service. Oh! Be filled with the Spirit (Ephesians 5:18).
There has been a great deal of discussion concerning the identity of these two witnesses. Most Bible scholars believe they are either Elijah and Moses, or Elijah and Enoch. Malachi is explicit in predicting Elijah’s future appearance upon earth. He states: Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord (Malachi 3:1 and 4:5). Thus, there is no doubt about Elijah being one of the witnesses.
This prediction is corroborated by the fact that Elijah did not die a physical death but was taken up into heaven by a whirlwind and a chariot of fire (see 2 Kings 2:9-11). Likewise, Enoch was taken to heaven without experiencing death (see Genesis 5:24 and Hebrews 11:5). He also prophesied the coming day of God’s judgment and the return of Christ with His church (see Jude 14, 15). Since Enoch’s earthly ministry predated the establishment of the Jewish race, he is considered by some as God’s first prophet to the Gentiles. Elijah, on the other hand, was God’s prophet to Israel. Thus, since God’s witness during the Tribulation hour is to both groups, many believe the two witnesses to be Elijah and Enoch.
Personally, I believe that Moses will be the other witness because he appeared with Elijah on the Mount of Transfiguration (see Matthew 17:1-8)-a preview of the glory to come in that day when the Lord Jesus Christ will be the only important one. The preview indicates that, when the day finally arrives, Moses and Elijah (also called Elias)-representatives of the law and of the prophets-will be present, undoubtedly as the two witnesses.
Concerning Moses: The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken…and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him (Deuteronomy 18:15,18,19). One should also keep in mind that the body of Moses was preserved by God. Jude, verse 9 declares: Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
These witnesses, dressed in sackcloth and proclaiming the message of judgment, will be hated. Latter-day terrorists will attempt to destroy them. God, however, forbids it and offers sovereign protection.
Verse 5: And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
This can be nothing but supernatural power and intervention. The fact that the two witnesses have superhuman anointing is evident from the next verse.
Verse 6: These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
One of these two witnesses, Elijah (or Elias), performed this very miracle in earlier days: Elias …prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit (James 5:17, 18).
Moses, the second witness, had power (along with Aaron his brother) to turn the waters into blood and smite the earth with diversified plagues (see Exodus 7-10). Thus, the Tribulation ministry of these two supernaturally anointed prophets will be but a repeat performance. During the entire period of their witness they cannot be killed. Their death must be at God’s appointed time.
Verse 7: And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
Isn’t it wonderful to know that nothing can happen to any child of God without the Lord’s divine permission? “What have I to dread, what have I to fear; leaning on the everlasting arms? I have blessed peace, with my Lord so near; leaning on the everlasting arms.” That’s right; no one can take a believer’s life without the permissive will of God: Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? (Job 7:1). It is appointed unto men once to die (Hebrews 9:27). This is why Christians should always say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that (James 4:15). At this point the time of the witnesses’ testifying ends. God’s purpose for His two servants has been completed. Soon they will be called home. The method of their release from the body is death at the hands of the beast. His conduct is identical to that of the now deceased Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran, who had the bodies of America’s brave servicemen displayed in the streets of Tehran following the April 1980 hostage rescue attempt. His action was one of the most repulsive, repugnant sights ever witnessed. The Antichrist commits the same dastardly deed with the bodies of Moses and Elijah.
Verse 8: And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
Since the Lord was crucified in this city, we know it to be Jerusalem. The term great city is the Holy City (Jerusalem) of verse 2. Why, then, is it called Sodom and Egypt? Because the moral and spiritual conditions that existed in Sodom before its destruction, and the idolatrous iniquities that abounded in Egypt before God judged the land, are found inundating Jerusalem during this period of time. All the preaching of repentance by the two witnesses in sackcloth does not change the wicked complexion of the city.
The death of the two witnesses is observed by the entire world, as evidenced by the next verse.
Verse 9: And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
Satellite television, beaming the identical image to every nation on earth, and into every home equipped with a receiver, allows the spectacle to be observed internationally. The action constitutes a victory celebration by the Antichrist, similar to Khomeini’s televised production. In response, the world rejoices. The two “gloom and doom” preachers are gone! No longer will two hellfire advocates spoil their tea parties. No longer will their beer and salami festivals be hindered. The two witnesses are dead.
Verse 10: And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
Wait! The party is coming to an end! Their food will soon stick in their throats. A miracle of spectacular proportions is about to occur!
Verse 11: And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
Verse 12: And they heard a Great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
Elijah and Moses receive the same treatment as the raptured saints in Revelation 4:1. Hallelujah! They depart for glory in a twinkling of an eye. As this awe-inspiring sight is being observed, God sends judgment for all the sacrilegious acts the violent, drug-crazed crowds perpetrated on these two servants.
Verse 13: And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
Talk about a television spectacular! Two men come to life again and then vanish in a cloud! Next an unprecedented earthquake hits the city and 7,000 celebrities (the interpretation of many scholars)-yes, big names among the elite-are killed. This video extravaganza will make the nightly news seem like child’s play.
Those who live through the experience become exceedingly frightened and begin to praise God. However, it is not from converted hearts that they exalt Him. Instead, their praise is the result of astonishment and alarm. Their reaction is similar to that of the scribes and the Pharisees who witnessed the miracle of the healed paralytic and were all amazed, and glorified God, and were filled with fear (see
Luke 5:26). They did not get saved, just scared! Some people develop a spiritual vocabulary in a hurry. Wait until atomic bombs begin flying. Prayer and praise will become the order of the day!
We come now to the third woe. Remember the angel in chapter 8, verse 13 who cried, “Woe, woe, woe“? Each woe depicted a different judgment. Each, in turn, became more severe. The first woe was the fifth trumpet blast, the second woe the sixth trumpet blast. At this point the final woe, or seventh trumpet, is about to sound.
Verse 14: The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
Verse 15: And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
The picture before us is the same as the one in chapter 19, verses 11 through 16-the return of the King. If one remembers that chapters 6 through 11 and 12 through 19:15 run concurrently, or side by side, during the Tribulation hour, he will understand why the King returns both in chapter 11, verse 15 and in chapter 19, verse 16. Chapters 12 through 19 are but a repeat of the events described in chapters 6 through 11. Now, as the King returns, a praise and worship service begins.
Verse 16: And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshiped God.
This is an act of gratitude. Remember that the twenty-four elders represent all believers-Old and New Testament-who have lived on this earth and who have been raptured to heaven in chapter 4, verse 1. They know firsthand that Satan has been the God of this world system (see 2 Corinthians 4:4). They understand fully that the nations of this world have been under his control (see Matthew 4:8, 9). But now, praise God, Satan’s reign has finally ended-the King has come! There is great rejoicing in heaven among the raptured saints as the midnight newscast is shared. They unitedly pray…
Verse 17: Saying, We give thee thanks, 0 Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.
Their prayer is to Christ, the One who used the title, which art, and wast, and art to come. The power that was always His has now been embraced, and He has begun His reign. The wicked are upset over the King’s return.
Verse 18: And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
Notice the number of happenings which transpire at the King’s return.
First, the nations are angry. This is also observed in the other text describing the King’s descent to earth: And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army (chapter 19, verse 19).
Second, the day of God’s wrath has come as the King returns. This is the period of time when out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God (chapter 19, verse 15).
Third, at the conclusion of the King’s 1,000-year reign, the wicked are judged. The setting is chapter 20, verses 11 through 15.
Fourth, the faithful prophets and saints, small and great, are rewarded at the end of the 1,000 years. This is not a picture of the Judgment Seat of Christ (see 2 Corinthians 5:10). Then believers were raptured (chapter 4, verse 1), investigated (chapter 4, verse 2), coronated (chapter 4, verse 4), and exalted as they laid their crowns at Jesus’ feet (chapter 4, verse 10), long before the Tribulation hour ended. The rewards presented at this time are for those who were faithful during the kingdom age-those who did not rebel and follow Satan at its conclusion (chapter 20, verses 7, 8).
Fifth, those who destroyed the earth are destroyed. This refers to spirit beings who followed the destroyer, Satan. Their destruction is separate from that of the nations, hence the division between the two in verse 18. Satanic beings receive their judgment at this hour as well as the earth dwellers. In the midst of all of this, Israel is spared.
Verse 19: And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.
The temple of God and the Ark of the Testament, both connected with Jewish worship, picture Israel. Thus, in the midst of lightnings, and voices and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail, God spares His covenant people.
FROM THE HEART OF DR. REXELLA VAN IMPE
AM I ALONE AND IN TROUBLE?
Ah, Lord God! behold, thou hast made
the heavens and the earth by thy
great power and stretched out arm, and
there is nothing too hard for thee.
Probably all of us, at one time or another, have faced a sudden and unexpected crisis in our lives when we cried out in alarm, “How can I get through this? It’s overwhelming, and I feel so alone!” Has that ever happened to you?
The good news is that for the child of God, the Lord himself has promised that you are never alone! For he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee (Hebrews 13:5). In times of crisis, we must remind ourselves that we can access the power that is given to us through our connection with the Lord.
Let me open my heart and tell you about a time in my life that compares to no other…a time when I ordinarily could have asked, “Am I alone and in trouble?” But not for one moment would the Lord allow me to feel His absence. On the contrary, I felt His peace, His power, and His presence.
“Honey, I need you”
It was three o’clock in the morning on August 15, 2005. I was sleeping soundly when, all of a sudden, I heard my husband say urgently, “Honey, I need you!” Immediately I was wide awake. I sensed that for Jack to call out to me in distress meant that this was no ordinary time. He had never awakened me in the middle of the night like this.
Oh, there had been times when both of us had awakened together if we had a special burden or an exciting event coming up. We’d sit up in bed and say, “Let’s go have a cup of hot chocolate and a word of prayer together.” Those were mostly happy times. But this time was different. Jack’s “Honey, I need you” wasn’t an invitation to share blessings, but a request for help with a true need…and I instantly knew it!
You see, my husband is a very organized, together, self-sufficient kind of person, always motivated and goal-oriented. Very seldom in our entire marriage has he ever come to me and said, “I need you!” I’ve always been blessed if he asked a favor or shared a need or concern with me. But this was not one of those times-it was much, much more!
When I opened my eyes and looked at him, I saw that Jack’s teeth were chattering and his body was in convulsions, shaking uncontrollably. This was serious trouble! Instantly I was out of the bed and on my feet. And at that moment, somehow the Lord overwhelmed me with His guidance and peace.
I said, “Just a moment, honey!” I grabbed an extra quilt, tucked it around him, then looked up a number and used the bedside phone to call our doctor at home. As soon as I explained what was happening, she interrupted me-
“Rexella, the emergency room, NOW!” Oh, my, it was a tone I had never heard in her voice before. She repeated, “You need help now! Go!”
Doing the impossible
How could I get a big man like Jack-helpless from his convulsive shaking-out of bed, down the stairs, and into the car? Somehow I just knew I didn’t have time to wait for an ambulance to be dispatched. Waiting that extra twenty to thirty minutes could have made a tragic difference in this emergency! Seeing Jack’s condition, I knew that time was critical.
I pulled Jack to a sitting position, then urged him to his feet, wrapping the quilt around him for warmth. As I helped him across the room to the stairs, I felt so much strength surging through my body, so much clarity and resolve in my mind. Somehow I knew what to do and how to do it. Like the psalmist David, I discovered that God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1).
Step by step we made it down the stairs, then across the downstairs to the garage. I opened the passenger door, turned Jack around and eased him down into the seat. I lifted his jerking legs into the car and shut the door. In another moment, I was in the driver’s seat, carefully backing out of the driveway. Then we were on our way to the hospital emergency room.
Looking back, I honestly don’t know how I did it. And Jack, suffering a violent physical attack, doesn’t remember anything about those crisis minutes. The only prayer I had time to pray at the time was three simple words, “Lord help me!” But those words made direct contact with heaven. I have never prayed a more sincere prayer in my whole life. “Lord help me!” And He did. Without supernatural strength, there is no way I could have done what I did. But God’s presence was all around, enabling me to do what I couldn’t possibly have done in the flesh. I had God’s strength, His courage, and His sufficiency.
“It’s life or death!”
Upon arrival at the hospital, the medical staff was waiting for us. Technicians pulled him from the car, put him in a wheelchair, then on a stretcher, and then almost immediately ran to the emergency room. As soon as I got inside, I answered a couple of questions because Jack was unable to speak.
Then they moved him into a treatment room and started IVs and emergency procedures. The atmosphere was dramatic and filled with high tension. As the medical staff moved quickly around the bed where my husband lay, three different doctors told me this was a life-or-death situation. So I was well aware of Jack’s near-death condition, but somehow I felt the peace of God, which passeth all understanding (Philippians 4:7). It was almost as if my spirit was confidently saying, “Lord, nothing is too hard for You.”
I am sure this is the same feeling that must have overcome Noah when he was building a ship on dry ground…and Abraham when he was commanded to offer up his son as a sacrifice on the altar… or Daniel as he knelt to pray, knowing that a den of ferocious lions awaited him. No doubt Moses felt the pressure of crisis when he started out leading two million people out of Egypt. And Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, the three Hebrew children, faced the fiery furnace with only their faith to protect them. Their action required absolute trust and commitment. There are so many other wonderful stories in the Bible where great men and women of faith put their all on the line. If their trust in God didn’t work, it wouldn’t be just a disappointment-it was life or death!
The record shows that these people took their stand, not for some rich reward but because they were doing what God wanted them to do. It was heroic faith in God. And I can humbly say from my heart-this was the kind of faith God gave me.
The miraculous healing
I later learned more details about Jack’s condition and the horrendous attack on his physical body. He actually had an infection in his blood, called Sepsis, which travels quickly through the bloodstream and, more often than not, takes the life of its victim. Sepsis is a deadly condition because it is such a raging force that races throughout the body almost immediately. Normally speaking, a patient could die within two to four hours!
I gasped when I heard that. Truly God had both strengthened and guided me in that crucial early morning trial. Had I not been awakened…had I called an ambulance and waited for it to arrive…had I not had clear sailing on a usually traffic-clogged street across town and into a very busy emergency room…had the ER technicians not been standing by, waiting in professional readiness for our arrival-truly, Dr. Van Impe could have been gone!
Why did everything go so smoothly? Because God kept His promise found in Isaiah 45:2: I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight. I believe that with all of my heart.
One of the medical technicians who worked on Jack in the emergency room spoke up and said, “Dr. Jack, I love your television program, but I didn’t want to meet you like this!” The doctor in charge of the ER that night came to visit Jack in his hospital room for the next four days. It’s not often that a doctor will take the time to visit after he is off duty. But this man came every day to be sure that Jack was still okay, and to express his gratitude to God for intervening.
The next night after Jack’s attack, the doctors and nurses assured me that Jack’s condition was stable and that because of the antibiotics they were pouring into him, he was now starting to recover. Also, they had discovered that he had anemia, so they started him on an aggressive treatment-vitamin B-12 shots daily for seventeen days, then weekly for a month, then once a month for the rest of his life! But because he was stable, they told me I should go home and rest for a few hours.
As I gathered up my possessions to go home, I saw the quilt I had wrapped around Jack on our emergency trip to the hospital. It was my mother’s quilt that she had used when she was recuperating from a stroke. In the crisis hour, I had grabbed it to put around Jack-it was as if I had wrapped him in my mother’s love! Seeing that link to a woman of such strong faith was a real comfort to me.
This is my story, this is my song,
praising the Savior all the day long
I am sharing this testimony, not to boast of my strength or faith. I can identify with David, who confessed, This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles (Psalm 34:6). I just want you to know that when you get in trouble and are confronted with overwhelming need, you can call and God will be there. And there is nothing too hard for Him!
If you’re reading this newsletter right now and you have found yourself wondering, “Am I alone and in trouble?”-I have encouragement for you. If you know the Lord, you are never alone. And no matter how big your battle, your situation is never hopeless because God is able. And He will be there for you to meet your need.
I went back to the hospital the next morning, and I could see that Jack was already improving. He was alert and talking, conversing with the nurses, the doctors, and the chaplain who visited. And by the time I left to go home that evening, he said, “Honey, don’t forget to bring me some books tomorrow!”
Jack only stayed in the hospital four days. By then he seemed like his old self. On Thursday, the fourth day after his terrible attack, he told the doctor he was ready to go home. A bit dubious, the doctor said, “I don’t know if you should be going home this soon.”
“I’m fine,” said Jack. “I’ve got a telecast to do. I need to go home!” And he did. However, he had an additional three weeks of treatment at home.
He got home on Thursday, rested and studied on Friday, and Saturday we went into the studio and taped our telecast! Friends who know Jack well may have detected a little less vibrancy in his face, but he was there at the desk, smiling, with the anointing of the Holy Spirit on him. That’s what God did! It was just amazing. And it is no exaggeration to call it a miracle!
Nothing takes God by surprise
Isn’t it wonderful to know that nothing takes God by surprise? The devil didn’t surprise God by attacking Jack-we are always on God’s mind. I take comfort in the Lord’s words to David, Nevertheless I am continually with thee (Psalm 73:23).
So, my friend, what are you going through? What do you need from the Lord? Even if it appears that you are facing insurmountable odds, there is hope and help for you! You are never alone, and nothing is too hard for God. All things are possible if you believe.
God is no respecter of persons-His Word declares it. What He did for Jack and Rexella Van Impe, He will do for you. The same Great Physician who touched and healed Jack already has His hand outstretched to you. There is hope for the hopeless and help for the helpless in Jesus!
Many years ago I heard Dr. M. R. DeHaan make a statement that I love and appreciate. I suggest that you write it in the front of your Bible and read it every day when you have your personal devotional time. It will revolutionize your whole life. Are you ready? Here it is-
Faith expects from God
what is beyond all expectation!
CHANGED LIVES-one at a time

HIGHLIGHTED PRODUCT OFFERS
The Final Three Popes Signal Christ’s Return
Are we now living in the era of the final three Popes? How do these final three Popes signal Christ’s imminent return?
Acclaimed Bible scholar and teacher Dr. Jack Van Impe draws upon his lifetime of research and study to make a definitive case for Christ’s imminent return.
This power-packed volume is thoroughly documented yet easy to read; an inspiring account proving beyond any shadow of doubt that Jesus is coming soon!
Reclaiming and Restoring Biblical Christianity
The Bible says in these latter days the love of many will grow cold – apostasy will set in – and supposed religious leaders will have a form of godliness but lack its power.
We’re seeing these prophecies fulfilled today!
You and your family deserve to know the facts – the truth that many supposedly ‘Christian’ leaders want to hide from you!
There is only one way to heaven, through salvation in Jesus Christ. Choosing Christ means a change in lifestyle – and many preachers today just don’t want to tell people that they must be transformed!
But Drs. Jack and Rexella Van Impe set the record straight in their landmark teaching video, Reclaiming and Restoring Biblical Christianity
