were false prophets also among the people, even as there
shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring
in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought
them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of
whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through
covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise
of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and
their damnation slumbereth not.

Al Cuppett &
The Elijah Sightings
who in the past has been a frequent speaker of The
Club®, declares Elijah is
alive and well in Israel.
Jim Searcy who also promotes
this same Elijah on his website, Great
Joy in Tribulation, writes this about Mr. Cuppett.
“Al Cuppet is the man who did two of the most popular of the
Prophecy Club videos. The titles of the 2 videos are
"Straight from the Joint Chiefs of Staff" and
"Black Operations & Prophecy." Al has also
been a faithful follower and supporter of Brother Stair, for
many years. Al spent 21 years in the Army and was awarded
the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. He also spent 9 years with
the Department of Defense. He spent 6 years on the Joint
Chiefs of Staff. He is very well aware of the secret
government running America and most other nations.”
follows is my affirming testimony, before the Lord God,
Jewish born man, now in Israel, is proclaiming the last day
message for all to hear. Whether they be listening, or
believing, or not. …I know after 30 years of the word of
God, from the word of God, what the words that the end time
Elijah should be, and how they would be delivered…In June, I
listened to Elijah's testimony and slept in the same room with
him for 5 days. At one point he gave me a video about Anne
Frank, as I was in the process of warning the Jews of the
coming holocaust in America…."
the Holy Ghost revealed to me that I was to be associated with
him at all cost, as our messages are integrated…Furthermore,
I was to be around him enough to know he is the very one God
promised to send to Israel. I stand by that conclusion today.
To wit, and I say this, if he isn't the man, that there will
have to be another that looks just like him and speaks the
same words…During the 12 or so days, that I actually spent
portions of with Elijah, and after hearing his testimony, and
seeing the response of others to him: I can safely affirm
Elijah is the man of God, that God has sent, for the end
times, in Israel. Disregard the negative letters about Pastor
Carlson. For no man is perfect….”[Bolding in original]
note that Elijah preaches and rebukes just like prophet R. G.
I did not witness any of the incidents with Elijah first hand,
I can't address the Elijah related incidence regarding (l.)
the demise of the mail tampering of the Bethlehem postmaster
(2.)the record drought in Cypress or (3.) the serious heart
attack of a Rabbi who was warned to treat black Jews equal or
I can assure you this, the record 3 year drought in Israel is
FACT. Elijah warned them to do right, in writing, before it
ever started. I saw his letters, and I read them. Israel shall
heed the warnings soon, otherwise, they shall have to vacate
the land for lack of water. But, prophetic scripture never
removes them once they return as a nation in 1948. Therefore,
they and the Government of Israel, shall heed, and obey his
words. The U. S. Jews better escape to Israel soon.”
the time and the seasons, that is numbers of the dates, and
times, written and set forth in the word of God, well, they
must all be shortened, as the Lord has reserved that right, to
save the elect, and almighty God shall have to do so, and is
already doing it. That is to save us. As of July, 1999 we are
on the very brink of global disaster. Prepare to meet thy God
for you shall soon meet Him. And when you meet him you will
recognize him as the GREAT I AM, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.”
Ralph R.G. Stair whom Al Cuppett alludes to as being a prophet
like this Elijah is best described by one observer who has
listened to his radio program and read his newsletters:
tongues speaking, divorced and remarried Ralph Stair has
what could be described as a cultish group in Walterboro,
South Carolina. His radio station is based there and
transmits his shortwave radio programs 24 hours a day.
Mr. Stair has stated many times that if Jesus did not
return in 2000 he, Stair, would go off the air. Stair also
said if Jesus did not return in 2000 he would tell him to go
to Hell. Stair teaches that you must never go to a doctor,
you must get rid of TVs and you must move out of the cities.
Women may never wear slacks. And so forth. When you listen
to him you find he speaks some Biblical truth and some
error. When he speaks he can sound mean and angry and at
times comes across as vulgar. Al Cuppett has been on his
radio broadcast more than once as has
Monte Judah, a
Messianic Jew, who has a ministry in OK called Lion and
Al Cuppett’s Elijah prophet just like “Brother Stair”?
If so, is his behavior a new form of ‘godliness’ which
lines up with Scripture?? We hardly think so!!!
Stan Johnson, founder of The
Club® stated in an email in
March 2006 that Al Cuppett is no longer a speaker with them,
although he also stated, "He
was NOT saying he found Elijah when I put him on tour. As a
matter of fact, after his last tour I decided that would be
his last one for various reasons. He has contacted our
ministry on numerous occasions asking to be on another tour
and was turned down. He sent me a DVD in hopes our ministry
would carry it and I have had it almost a year and have not
Timothy 6: 9-12
they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare,
and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men
in destruction and perdition.
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while
some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and
pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow
after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience,
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life,
whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good
profession before many witnesses.
However, whether on tour or not, The
Club® still sells
Al Cuppett's videos. The
Club® web site has sold Mr. Cuppetts' two videos since
the late 90's and continues to sell them in 2006, with
the advertisements which are presented below.
From The Joint Chiefs - Al Cuppett
The Al Cuppett video you've heard so much about! Al
spent 21 years in the Army and won the Bronze Star and
Purple Heart. He spent nine years with the Dept. of Defense,
which included six years on the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Al
explains the secret government running our nation, our
defenselessness to missile attack, the red and blue roundup
lists, black operations, multinational helicopter
operations, UN/Soviet troops ready to control America, the
microchip body implant, and photos of FEMA detention centers
Ops. and Prophecy - Al Cuppett
The follow-up to the very popular Straight From the
Joint Chiefs. Al brings up-to-date information about UN black
operation teams using the German Dropsonde to quickly locate
American citizens for red list arrest or detention; the
"meat recall" designed to better control our food
distribution; the secret government's aspartame poison plan to
destroy our health. He also highlights the difference between
your phone being "tapped" and "trapped",
UN busses being manufactured in America, painted white with
black "UN" on the side, and much more.
private source who spoke several times with Mr. Cuppett
“He claims to speak 5 or
so languages, pushes Gematria and a book about it. He is
adamant that women never wear slacks. He claims to have lots
of inside information about what the government is doing
regarding their plans to pick up people and haul them away
in helicopters to concentration camps and kill them etc. He
claims that he has been under attack by government entities
and said planes flew over his home and released chemtrails
to make him sick. He spoke of vans outside of houses and
people in the vans using microwaves to kill people by
burning them. Mr. Cuppett called one night and told me the
time was nearing for the helicopter pick-ups and there were
lists of people to be nabbed. There was a red list and a
blue list. He assured me he was on the list and that I was
too. He told me about his preparations at home in the
basement to avoid death by nuclear attack and told me what
books to buy and what I should do to set up a bunker. He
used to send out a newsletter in which he wrote about these
things and the crimes of the Clintons etc. Cuppett sometimes
attended "Preparedness Expos" at which patriots
and others heard speakers and bought supplies to prepare for

Elijah push is on and many are rushing to be in Israel,
including many so-called Christians, we see some believe the
emergence of an Elijah to be six months prior to the expected
appearance of “Messiah.” We know this expectation by
non-believing Jews will be for the false Messiah. According to
Kabbalist Avi ben
Mordechai, the resurrection is scheduled
for the Feast of Trumpets.

4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming
of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
concept of Eliyahu's [Elijah] coming as a herald of Mashiach
Ben-David [Messiah, son of David] is supported not only in the
Tanakh [Old Testament] and the B'rit Chadashah [New Testament]
but also in our Jewish literature:
...The resurrection of the dead cometh through Elijah of
blessed memory. [Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Sotah 49b]
...the holy spirit leads to the resurrection of the dead; the
resurrection of the dead leads to Elijah the prophet. [Midrash
Rabbah Song of Songs]
The resurrection of the dead will come through Elijah, who
will likewise act as the herald to announce the advent of the
Messiah. [Everyman's Talmud]
was even taught that Eliyahu had three cities in Y'hudah
[Judah] from which he would again begin his
ministry…According to Jewish expectation, Eliyahu will
emerge before the resurrection from one of these cities
(ruins) and not in the desert as was Yochanan the Immerser
[John the Baptist].
more interesting fact: According to Jewish expectation,
Eliyahu will come with Mosheh [Moses]… [God Speaking]
I swear to you, as you devoted your life to their service in
this world, so too in the time to come when I bring Elijah,
the prophet, unto them, the two of you shall come together. [Midrash
believe Eliyahu and Mosheh will return in the flesh prior to
the resurrection and rapture on the Day of the L-rd. How soon
before the Day of the L-rd will they appear? I am not sure
about Mosheh but I think Eliyahu will come six months before
the resurrection because Yochanan (a type of Eliyahu), who
was a forerunner of Mashiach, was six months older than Y'shua.
And if Y'shua comes for His bride at Rosh Hashanah then
Eliyahu will appear in Israel at Pesach. Why Pesach? Because
that is when Eliyahu is expected. For almost 2,000 years, Jews
every year at the annual celebration of Pesach prepare a
table-setting for him.
the ancient Jewish writings including the Tanakh the
resurrection is scheduled for the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh
Hashanah) which is called an "appointed time," or in
Hebrew, a Moed.

Grant Jeffrey, a speaker at
Prophecy Club, and founder of Frontier Research
Publications, Inc, and whom we mentioned in connection with
Prophezine, promotes Bible Codes a.k.a.
a slightly different time frame concerning Elijah. He states
it is taught by rabbis that Elijah will appear, not six months
prior to the Messiah but, either 3 days or 3 years prior.
the centuries the Jews have developed a number of traditions
about Elijah the prophet...His appearance as the forerunner of
Messiah will motivate the Jewish people to national and
individual repentance. The rabbis believe that Elijah and the
Messiah will usher in a time of peace and harmony for all
nations. They believe that Elijah will resolve all legal
questions and the discrepancies in religious law (Halachah).
In addition they expect him to establish the proper rituals
for the restoration of the Temple service. Curiously, they
describe Elijah as a partner to Moses in God's coming kingdom,
the same role that Aaron used to perform during the Exodus.
rabbis teach that Elijah will appear at some point in time
(either three days or three years) before the advent of the
Messiah. They anticipate that he will appear in Palestine and
utter a lament over the devastation of the Holy Land. After
Michael the Archangel blows his trumpet, Elijah will introduce
the Messiah to the world. The Talmud claims that several
wonders will accompany the coming of Elijah and the Messiah:
(1) He will bring Moses back to life. (2) He will reveal the
secret location of the three holy vessels that mysteriously
disappeared: the Ark of the Covenant, the Flask of Manna and
the container of sacred anointing oil. (3) He will carry the
royal scepter of Judah which God promised 'shall not depart
from Judah...until Shiloh come' (Gen 49:10). (4) He will
transform the geography of the Holy Land, leveling the
curious belief of the rabbis is that Elijah will be one of the
eight princes that will form the cabinet of the Messiah.
Additionally, they tell us that Elijah will restore the tribal
identities of the Jews." 13
The Prophecy Club, founded
by Stan Johnson, provide these insights about themselves.
"The Prophecy Club web site is an extension of The Prophecy Club, a
Christian ministry dedicated to bringing you the best in Bible
prophecy. Our mission is to warn Christians and non-Christians
of the devices of the devil and judgment coming on America,
and encourage them to get sin out of their life and to walk
closer to Jesus Christ.”
site stated "The Lord started The
because 'in general' churches will not sound the warning."
A quick review of their AboutUs information in 2006 shows, "...Today, The Prophecy Club's basic message
of biblical prophecy and warning remains. ...Historically,
crusades were organized to take back geographical territories
for God. Today, The Prophecy Club holds a crusade every three to
six weeks, thus taking back spiritual territory in this country
for the Kingdom of God..." 14
God didn't lose any territory.
This is dominionist/restoration/kingdom now theology which has
no Scriptural foundation. If the presence of the Prophecy Club
in a particular city made the city for God--all would be
born-again believers with zero crime rates and everything done
for the honor of Jesus Christ. There is no such place.
Describing the benefits of
membership to the Prophecy Club, it promises: "...If we want power, prophecy, praise,
worship, miracles, healing, intercession and the five-fold
anointing in our lives, then we want to be a Partaker. Being a
Partaker is better than being a partner because you "partake" in
the anointing, blessing and protection of that ministry."
There is no Scripture to
support the above claims. All who belong to Jesus Christ are
filled with the Spirit, given gifts according to the Holy Spirit
for edifying the Body of Christ and sharing Christ and are
protected because of Christ. One does not need to belong to or
'partake' of anything but obedience to Christ and the Word of
Unfortunately, the Prophecy
Club name really
is a misnomer. With all the failed predictions, empty
speculation, un-verifiable claims, faulty theology, provably
inaccurate scholarship by some, many Christians view the Prophecy Club as
devoid of anything worthwhile.
Stan Johnson, the
founder, and with many speakers referred to as anointed apostles and prophets/prophetesses,
have made so many failed predictions, even Rick Joyner's
heretical teaching that prophecy can be 10-90% accurate would be
pushed to the limit. According to Stan Johnson and his
associates, prophets don't have to be 100% accurate, using Jonah
as the example, and also misapplying Deuteronomy 13:1-3.
In fact, as discussed later in this article concerning all the
Y2K prophetic failures, Stan Johnson eventually declared that, "The best prophet may be a false
prophet.", while also having declared that all prophetic
dreams and visions were, "Thus saith the Lord".
For more on false prophets please
prophets merely make mistakes...
Everything must be bound to the Scriptures, not dreams, not
speculation and not factual inaccuracies. God cannot lie. Yet if
these 'prophets' claim God told them things that were to happen
and then they did not, and now those things are viewed with
relief as false prophecies, how does that align with any
God said more about prophecy than
the verses used by Johnson and others promoting the inaccuracies
of the dreams and visions and 'prophetic utterances.'
Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD,
that steal my words every one from his neighbour. Behold, I am
against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their tongues,
and say, He saith. Behold, I am against them that prophesy
false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my
people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I
sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not
profit this people at all, saith the LORD.
De 18:20 But the
prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which
I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the
name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
The question would be whether any claiming to be
prophets are, and where is the discernment and weighing all to
the Scriptures and proving all things? Those things are sadly
lacking in many ministries and those claiming leadership let
alone the inside track of 'prophecy.'
According to Stan Johnson in
March 2006, there have been some 135 speakers involved in the
Prophecy Club over thirteen years, although 100 of them seemed
to be up to the Y2K fiasco. Some of those past Prophecy Club
Speakers have been on their previous speaker lists from 1995, from 2000 up to and
since 2003/2004, and includes names supposedly removed by that
The following list also includes
promoted names in the Prophecy Club store up to 2006, although it is unclear if all have
been speakers at the Prophecy Club or are merely selling their
products there. The total number of names listed in 2006
is about 84:

Many of the speakers are
'former' intelligence officers, former spies, former government insiders,
former military, former satanists, etc. and many claim to have inside or unique
information that is hidden by the authorities and which in
many cases, they alone are privy to this truth. Some are
and ecumenical in their beliefs. Some may have legitimate and
provable information, although one could well wonder why they
are involved with this organization.

interview that he had spoken at a
Amid Grant Jeffrey's speculations,
un-provable claims, Y2K failed predictions and others, is his
promotion of the kabbalah via the Zohar. He is viewed by many as
the push behind the acceptance of Bible codes by Christians and
he first introduced his followers to Yacov Rambsel and his Bible
codes. Rambsel's ELS codes focused on finding
Yeshua hidden throughout the Old
Testament, although the Greek in the New Testament never appears
to come into the equations of proving Biblical Truth.
Yacov Rambsel, whose actual name
was James Arthur Rambsel, died in July 2005. His work is still
sold by the Prophecy Club. A TBN guest, he was also a guest
speaker at The Days of Elijah Prophetic Conference: August 13 -
17, 2003 whose stated theme was "Understanding the Prophetic
Role of Israel and the Church in the Last Days." He was listed
alongside Ralph Messer, Perry Stone and others including musical
appearances by such as the MJAA's Paul Wilbur. See:
MJAA Executives & The Hebrew Roots "Fringe". His teachings
are for sale at God's News Behind the News, Prophezine, The
Prophecy Club and similar sources.
Grant Jeffrey's latest promotion of the zohar found on his web site, presents the 'kabbalist
trinity' and is called, The Sacred Mystery of the Trinity'.
Below is an excerpt from Grant
Jeffrey's article, where he is promoting kabbalistic writings,
which he claims were written at the time of Christ when in fact
the zohar/kabbalah which he references was written in the
"....The fascinating book
Kabbalah Denudata by Knorr von Rosenroth was published in 1677
and later translated into English almost two centuries later.
His book is valuable for Christian scholars unfamiliar with
the Hebrew and Aramaic languages who wish to examine the
teachings of the Zohar.
"Many of the most difficult
areas of the Scriptures are discussed and debated in the pages
of the Zohar. The primary value for Christians is the deeper
understanding we can gain as to what the Jewish religious
leaders truly thought about the teachings of the Old
Testament, including the mystery of the Trinity. I was amazed
when I first read the English translations of this book
because I discovered that these brilliant Jewish sages had
come to a clear understanding of the mystery of the Trinity
two thousand years ago. This important discovery of the
teaching of the Trinity by the ancient Jewish sages helps us
to understand why many Jews accepted the teaching of John the
Baptist and Jesus of Nazareth during the first century of this
era. Although many Jews naturally rejected Jesus' claims to be
the Messiah and the Son of God, many Jews accepted that Jesus
was the fulfillment of the ancient prophecies of the Old
Testament. In addition, the fact that the ancient Jewish sages
spoke of the mystery of the plural nature of God prepared many
in the Jewish nation to accept Jesus' claims that "I and my
Father are one" (John 10:30).
The Trinity As Taught by
the Ancient Jewish Sages
Do the ancient Jewish books
such as the Zohar and the Targums actually refer to the
Trinity and clearly describe the plural nature of God? Let me
present the evidence, and you will be able to judge for
yourself. Consider the following statements:
"How can they (the three) be One? Are they verily One, because
we call them One ?..." 18
The “Zohar” that Grant Jeffrey
is referencing above, is the main foundational book of
kabbalistic teachings, that was written by those who openly
denied Christ. The idea that these occult writings presented the
trinity is refuted in the series
To Embrace Hebrew
Part V The
Kabbalah, which discusses "The fascinating book Kabbalah
Denudata by Knorr von Rosenroth" mentioned by Grant Jeffrey and
concerning the 'Christian Cabala', the "Jewish Encyclopœdia goes
on to observe derisively, " held the absurd idea that the Cabala
contained proofs of the truth of Christianity…. Much that
appears Christian [in the Cabala] is, in fact, nothing but the
logical development of certain ancient esoteric doctrines."

The crossover of speakers from
The Prophecy Club and potential influence of Christians via
other claimed prophecy groups or media such as God's News Behind
the News, Prophezine, Prophecy Central, TBN, Sky Angel, and so
on, via their various speakers who promote such things as gematria/bible codes,
returning to Hebrew/hebraic or Jewish roots, returning to the law,
British Israel and
other doctrine, is widespread. Many speakers are found promoting
their beliefs via the sale of their books or other media and are
interviewed or promoted to the various groups for that reason.
Many may not be aware of the beliefs of other speakers or the
groups they inevitably and perhaps inadvertently endorse by
Prophecy Club Teachings
Aside from the charismatic,
restore the Apostles and prophets leanings, the dominionist
and so on beliefs are the following observations. Many teachings out of the
Prophecy Club exude
British-Israelism, with anti-government fear-mongering and
pro-Christian revolution by some. If one looks at the
categories of their products, they range from selling food,
clothing, to conspiracy about 9-11, terrorism, astrology,
charismatic theology, prophetic training, UFO's, an "Angel
protecting America shot down the spacecraft at Roswell", area
51, New World Order hidden information that only the
presenting experts have access to, why and when the earth will
flip on it's axis, Power of Jesus crusades videos, Biblical
secrets that the particular speaker can only expound on, etc.
Many promote militias, patriot
groups, guns, gematria, near death/out of body experiences for
obtaining new revelation and prophecy. Jews are told to flee
America's "coming destruction" and Prophecy Club adherents urged
to move to Belize, Brazil and other destinations by some. Everything is hyped, conspiratorial and causing the
listener to focus and be concerned with the issues of the day,
worry about what governments might be doing,
rather than resting in Jesus Christ.
2 Timothy 2:1 Thou

1 John 2:15 Love not the
world, neither the things that are in the world. If any
man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh,
and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of
the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but
he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
Some have claimed to see
Christ or speak directly with Him. Jesus warned:
Matthew 24:23 Then if any
man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets,
and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it
were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the
desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers;
believe it not.
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth
even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man
reason for urging preparedness for the coming destruction of
the U.S. is that prophecy teachers such as Al Cuppett and Tom Van Asperen believe that America is Israel and that American
Christians are God's chosen people rather than the Jews. They
believe that the impending destruction will be God's wrath and
judgment on the true "Israel" for permitting
corruption, immorality, greed and materialism to become a way
In what appears to be an
attempt to incite rebellion in some form against the American government, some of these
prophecy teachers preach that the anti-Christian Illuminati/Council on Foreign
Relations, which control the
U.S., must be eliminated and the nation brought under the
control of Christians. Hence, the need for a Christian
"army" and the teaching of a righteous revolution.
Young people especially are being groomed for acceptance of
this false teaching, whereby they and Christians in general
can be viewed as a problem to the state. Because of the
charismatic/latterrain/kingdom now/dominionist theology, this
fits well with the
Joel's Army teachings.
We are not to be concerned
with what the secular world is doing. Neither Christ or the
apostles advocated rebellion to government and any interaction
with authorities was due to spiritual issues. Jesus said of
future events, 'these things must come to pass.'
God’s coming judgment only to be executed on the United
States, or does Scripture state that He will pour out his
wrath on all the nations? In their patriotic zeal, American
Christians have foolishly listened to false prophets who
advise rebellion in some form against ruling authorities instead of
listening to Scripture, which states that God appoints all
beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain
from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; ...Submit
yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake:
whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors,
as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of
evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.
would Al Cuppett and others advise American Jews to flee to safety in
Israel? He overlooks the fact that the Bible prophesies the
"time of Jacob's trouble" at which time the
antichrist will make a false covenant of peace and then
attempt to annihilate the physical Jews. These events are
foretold in the books of Daniel and Revelation. Those who have
feigned support of Israel and the covenant of peace will be
exposed and judged by the Lord Jesus Christ at his coming. At
this time the remnant of Jews and all mankind will recognize their Messiah. [Zech. 12: 8-10 and 14:1-4]
Will mankind be able to hide
in bunkers to save themselves from God's wrath and judgment?
6:15-17 “And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and
the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and
every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens
and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains
and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that
sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; For the

Failed Prophecies of
In 1997 Stan Johnson of the Prophecy Club saw a
"90 percent" chance that the tribulation would start September
12, 1997. He based his conclusions by combining the failed date
setting of Robert Wadsworth that September 12 would be Jesus'
2,000th birthday and it would also be the Day of Atonement
(according to Wadsworth's calculations). Further support was
extracted from his frequent Prophecy Club speaker, Dumitru
Duduman. Dumitru, who died in May 1997, and who claimed to have seen the Book of Life,
the "Gentile Book of Life" and with
claims over the years of having seen several pages yet to be
completed. In the last claim concerning the "Gentile Book of
Life", there was only
one page left. Johnson and his associates proclaimed that
the latest time frame for the completion of the book
would have to be September 1997 with the Tribulation starting at
That vision was promoted in the
Prophecy Club's May 1997 Newsletter,
"Vision received by Dumitru
Duduman on November 29, 1996
As I was laying in my hospital bed, looking over the faces of
my family, three men appeared beside me. One had a globe in
his hand, and he began to rotate it and point out certain
countries saying: "This is where the destruction will come
from. I don't remember all the places he pointed to, but I
remember I saw Mexico, Cuba, and the Alaskan border. Then one
of the men spoke to me; "We fought against death for you. It
was a hard fight. Do not fear; you will not leave. You still
have work to do."
Suddenly, three stars appeared behind them. One of them asked:
"Do you know what that means?"
"No," I answered.
"We won't say exactly, but it probably means that in another
three years a great massacre will occur." Then the stars
turned into blood, and everything disappeared."19
In checking the news, the
United States and other places appear to be still intact in March 2006, not
having been massacred by the Russian subs, which are also required as
prophetic fulfillment in Duduman's prophecies, including, "It
will start with an internal revolution, started by the
Communists" as the promo for the destruction of America. To
date, those things have not taken place.
However, the US and
countries around the world have
been hit severely by storms, earthquakes, flooding and other
disasters. Apparently those
scenarios don't fit with these particular prophecy
experts and their
'revelations' as meaning
much of anything.
Importance of Dumitru
One website recounted this
concerning Stan Johnson, the Prophecy Club and the importance of
Dumitru Duduman and his visions :[Bolding added]
"...I remember hearing
Johnson speak on a Prophecy
Club radio broadcast that sometimes his organization features
speakers that they might not agree with completely. He's
willing to cut them a little slack as long as they follow two
simple rules: (1) They must not challenge the inerrancy,
infallibility, or divine preservation of the King James
Version of the Holy Bible. (2) Their
prophecies and visions must
not run counter to those that have been made by Dumitru
revelations carry a lot of weight with
Johnson, who has frequently
spoken about how he drove Duduman to various prophecy meetings
and sermons through America and listened as Duduman revealed
more visions he had received from the Lord. When Duduman died
in 1997, Johnson appeared to
be quite saddened by the loss of an old friend that he looked
up to and whose prophecies
he had apparently cherished in his heart. It is therefore even
more of a mystery how such a glaring inconsistency could have
persisted in a Prophecy Club publication for so long without
anyone bringing it to Johnson's
attention earlier..." 20
In July 1997, Stan Johnson posted
the predictions of Duduman, with relation to the September 1997 event,
under the title, "Invasion Of
Israel/America; Gentile Book Of Life Filled; Israel's Sin Washed
Away/Recognizes Jesus As Messiah; And Their Land Returned?". In
that rambling, he recounted the various 'encounters' or visions
as they like to refer to them, with some men who had appeared to
give the information to Duduman concerning the Book of Life:
[Bolding added] "...God gave Dumitru visions
of the Book of Life. Here are some important points to notice:
when the Gentile Book of Life is filled, His grace leaves the
Gentiles; and goes to the Jews then what He has prophesied for
America comes. When His grace goes to the Jews, do their sins
4 Pages Remain
Dumitru Duduman -August 1991
"...A powerful bolt of lightning passed right by me. Out of it
came two beings.... They asked if I knew who they were. I
said, "No." They said, "We are heavenly beings." Their clothes
were white as snow. They had eyes that were penetrating. There
was a light in them. I could hardly look at them. Their hair
was white as wool, it was long, going down their backs. One of
them had a book. The other one had an ink well attached to his
belt, and a large pen in his hand. There was an eraser on one
The one with the pen said, "I was sent to complete The Book Of
The Gentiles. Do you want to see your names?" I looked, I saw
that all the names of my family were written there. They were
circled. I asked why they were circled. He said, "The devil
doesn't like what you do, and fights powerfully against all
you do. I have circled your names so I will give you extra
Then he opened the back of the book and counted out the
remaining blank pages at the end. One, two, three, four. Only
four pages left. "When these are filled," he said, "The Book
Of The Gentiles will be complete. "Then I will return to my
people. Some of the names that are listed here will be erased.
I will erase the names of those who have mocked God, and
tested the Spirit of Grace. I will replace them with other
Clouds in the Sky; 3-1/4
Dumitru Duduman -1991
"...Then two men appeared out of the white cloud. One had a
face like the sun. It was so bright I could not look at it.
The other had a humble face and had a book in his hand. He
opened it, and said, "Look."
He began to count the pages of the book. There were only three
and a quarter empty pages. Then he said, "It won't be long, be
prepared. When these pages are filled, God's grace will leave
the Gentiles. Then we will go to The Jewish Book of Life...."
Dream of 1 3/4 Pages Remain
Then on November 6, 1993, he had another dream, most of which
I must skip. The main part said.
"They put the books down on a large table. They spoke to me
saying, "Open, and read!" I opened the first book. I was told,
"This is the Book of Life." The man to my left said, "Whoever
finds his name in this book will be saved!" He said, "Open the
second book!" The words 'Book of the Gentiles' was scrawled on
the second book. I began to turn the pages. I saw all kinds of
names. I reached the end of the book. I found there one and
three-quarter pages left blank, unwritten.
One of the two men said, "When the total number of the
Gentiles is completed, writing in this book will be finished.
At that time, what I have shown you will happen. Then the
beast will do battle against the Holy. Remember what I tell
you. Be prepared. Live a holy life, and do not think you have
much time to live on this earth! Jesus is soon returning!
On July 1, 1994 Dumitru had another dream of the Book of Life
from which I will quote.
Dream received by Dumitru Duduman - July 1, 1994
...Only One Page Remains!
Dumitru Duduman -January 1996
"....Two men walked out of
this star dressed in shining garments. One spoke to me: "...I
still have names to add to the number before all the things
that I have shown you will happen."
They opened a great book and said, "Do you remember how many
pages were left to fill when I showed you last time? Now,
there is but one page left. When this is completed, what I
have told you will happen to America." The man proceeded to
tell me that the time it would take for this page to be filled
would not be longer, but shorter. He closed the book and
sounds of thunder reverberated. ..."
Does this mean the Gentile Book of Life is filled on September
the 12th? Would that mean God goes to the Jewish Book of Life?
Would that mean that the new covenant God promised the people
of Israel and Judah would take effect? Would that mean the
method of getting saved would change? If so, how would it
change?....If we switch from grace to the new covenant, where
are the Gentiles? How do people get saved? Are we still
Update: In November
2007, a reader brought some things to my attention.
I was reading your web page:
and came across Stan Johnson's statement: "I treat all dreams
and visions as "thus saith the Lord" and don’t make any
changes, even spelling or grammatical changes without the
permission of the author."
Apparently, Stan seems to do the opposite of what he says.
According to your source (point 21) Stan wrote down the
following "unchanged" prophecy:
4 Pages Remain
"...Then he opened the back of the book and counted out the
remaining blank pages at the end. One, two, three, four. Only
four pages left...."
The wording is incorrect according to the Hand of Help
website (the official website for Dumitru Duduman's ministry)
"He opened the back of the book and counted out 4 remaining
blank pages at the end..."
What's written on the Hand of Help website is the same as
written in his book; which I have a copy of: "Through the Fire
Without Burning" by Dumitru Duduman; pg. 173; ISBN
0-9635055-0-5; 2nd Edition (1992).
Your source (point 21) seems to indicate it's publication
date as July 1997 (www.prophecyclub.com/july97/1.html) which
is 5 years after the publication of Dumitru's book. Clearly
showing that Stan altered the original wording of Dumitru's
writings. It appears that the Prophecy Club has since then
removed this page.
Also, I have heard Stan on his radio
show, and read in his writings, this oft repeated phrase; "It
will start with an internal revolution, started by the
Communists." This phrase was never used in Dumitru's writings.
What is written is the following:
The Russian spies have discovered
where the nuclear warehouses are in America. When the
Americans will think that it is peace and safety - from the
middle of the country, some of the people will start fighting
against the government. The government will be busy with
internal problems. (pg. 161, Through the Fire Without Burning)
It doesn't say that the Communists
will start an internal revolution; just that the Russian spies
have discovered where the nuclear warehouses are in America.
This has actually been confirmed by a
former defected Russian KGB agent. ...
Stan Johnson also royally messed up
this one; which seems to be a major point of your argument
(which I agree with
that being, there is only one book of Life):
Clouds in the Sky; 3-1/4 Pages Remain
Dumitru Duduman -1991
When these pages are filled, God's
grace will leave the Gentiles. Then we will go to The Jewish
Book of Life...."
The original on the website and in
his 1992, 2nd edition book (pg . 174) (http://www.handofhelp.com/vision_15.php)
states the following:
When these pages are filled, The
Grace will leave the gentiles. Draw closer to me now, more
than ever - and be holy, because hard times are coming."
He changed the wording from the
original (the Grace
– to – God's grace) and then
proceeded to add something that was not there in the original
(...Then we will go to The Jewish Book of Life....)
...In fact, from all the visions that
are posted on the Hand of Help website and in his books, only
one has the word "Jewish" in it:
"I have blessed this country because of the Jewish people
who are in this country. I have seven million Jews in this
country, but they do not want to recognize the Lord. They
didn't want to thank God for the blessing they received in
this country. Israel doesn't want to recognize Jesus Christ.
They put their faith in the Jewish people in America. (also on
pg 162, Through the Fire without Burning)
No where else is the term "Jewish" used in conjunction with
the words "book of life" in any of Dumitru's visions.
Also the book of the Gentiles is never referred to as the
Gentile Book of Life in Dumitru's visions. This appears to be
another Stan Johnson embellishment. There is only one book of
life mentioned in his visions and that is the "Book of Life"
which goes on to say that "...Whoever finds his name in this
book will be saved..." This of course correlates with what is
written in Rev 20:15.
Throughout Dumitru's writings, when it came to this vision
of the book of the Gentiles, I always associated it to Luke
"And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be
led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be
trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles
I haven't found a mentioning of this specific book in
Scripture, but it does mention a time to come when there will
be a fulfillment of the Gentiles; thus a completion. Scripture
does however mention that there are other books besides the
book of Life; referred to as "books [plural]".
Rev 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before
God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened,
which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of
those things which were written in the books, according to
These "books" that are opened could include a "book of the
Gentiles". Scripture does not tell us what these books are,
except that "... the dead were judged out of those things
which were written in the books"
Therefore you are correct...there is only one Book of Life;
but there are other "books" which very well could include the
"book of the Gentiles". The only place the "Jewish Book of
Life" appears is in Stan Johnson's embellished writings. So
much for Stan not making "...any changes, even spelling or
...Stan says he had a vision that he was Dumitru Duduman.
In other words Stan was claiming that the "mantle" of prophecy
pasted to himself. Well...it appears that "prophet" wasn't
good enough. He has now chosen the title of
apostle...sorry...Apostle with a capital "A".
In my research I found out that Dumitru and the founder of
the Voice of the Martyrs (VOM) (www.persecution.com), Richard
Wurmbrand, worked together in Romania to smuggle Bibles into
Romania and Russia. I contacted VOM directly to find out if
this was true and they confirmed it. Richard also helped
Dumitru when he came here to America.
I was following, and contributing to VOM for at least 3
years prior to that of Hand of Help. Richard Wurmbrand
suffered in Communist prisons for (I think) a combined total
of 12 years because of his preaching of the gospel. He was
truly a godly man, and godly men typically don't work with
ungodly men for an extended period of time. A man that walks
with God will soon discover if there is a wolf in sheep's
clothing in his midst.
I appreciate your desire to root out false doctrine. I see
too that it is our duty as Christians to point this out to
others when we see it. I agree with your assessment of Stan,
but I do not agree with your assessment of Dumitru. ..."

It's difficult to believe that
there are likely very sincere people following the stuff
put out by Stan Johnson..
How can someone who claims Christian leadership have so little
understanding of the Word of God, and who Jesus Christ is and
what was accomplished through Him? The 'new covenant God promised the people' was
fulfilled in Jesus Christ. "Getting saved" and coming to the
Father can only be through Jesus Christ. We are saved by God's
grace. There is no 'switch' from that grace to another new
covenant. Those very questions and statements by Stan
Johnson overthrow many, many Scriptures.
The New Covenant prophecy from
Jeremiah 31 and Matthew 26:28
is referenced to by the Apostle Paul in Hebrews
7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should
no place have been sought for the second.
8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days
come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with
the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: 9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their
fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them
out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my
covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.
10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house
of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my
laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I
will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first
old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to

Is It Scriptural for New Covenant Believers? Introduction
with particular focus on
Part 2: The Prophesied New Covenant
Reviewing the various
claims of the late Dimitru Duduman, (none of which have come
true although all appear to have been dated at some point), there were a few verses that came immediately to mind
concerning the Book of Revelation, the prophecies and the adding
to or taking away from those words, which is the Revelation of
Jesus Christ [Rev 1:1] whose testimony is the spirit of
prophecy. [Rev 19:10]
Revelation 22:18 For I
testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy
of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God
shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the
book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the
book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the
things which are written in this book.
13:7 And it was given unto
him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and
power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him,
whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb
slain from the foundation of the world.
17:8 The beast that thou
sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless
pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth
shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of
life from the foundation of the world, when they behold
the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
21: 27 And there shall in no
wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever
worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are
written in the Lamb's book of life.
According to the above verses,
God, who is omniscient, has known who is written in the book of life since the
'foundation of the world,' and one would assume He always has
known. There is absolutely no verse
in Revelation or any other book in the Bible that refers to a
Gentile Book of Life or a Jewish Book of Life. There is
mention of one, singular, book of life which belongs to the the
Lamb of God and is written by God. [Ex 32:32; Rev 13:8]. We are
all one in Jesus Christ.
20:12 And I saw the dead,
small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened:
and another book was opened, which is the book of life:
and the dead were judged out of those things which were
written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death
and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they
were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is
the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life
was cast into the lake of fire.
Of course, the pattern of inaccuracies
continues. According to Mr. Duduman's prophecies, "Babylon", (which he and
many referred to as the United States) would be destroyed in a
nuclear firestorm in what they stated was the near future. According to that failed
vision, the date was apparently three years from Nov 29,
1996, which meant the end of November, 1999.
Deagle or William Deagle had toured extensively with
The Prophecy Club®, and
proclaimed himself to be one of the two witnesses in Revelation, to which Stan
Johnson also appeared to uphold, at least temporarily, as well as
claiming to be one of the
24 elders spoken of in Revelation. Deagle claimed to have daily
prophetic visitations from the angel Gabriel. He was still
listed as a past speaker in 2004.
Duduman and the popular Henry Gruver also claimed to have been taken up in
the Spirit, high above the earth by the Lord's Angel, and were
shown the coming nuclear war and destruction of America by
Russian submarines. Duduman also claimed to have
visitations from the angel Gabriel. Henry Gruver claimed to have
died and been in heaven for several hours, and that video is
sold at Prophecy Club. The required Russian submarine attacks might be in sharp contrast to
predictions by some Prophecy Club speakers concerning the impending hoards of Muslims
coming to shore to destroy America.
In January 2000, Stan Johnson
wrote in his newsletter, concerning the late Duduman's booklet
of prophecies and visions and a printed error. Michael Boldea,
Duduman's grandson, has replaced his grandfather as speaker and
prophet with the Prophecy Club. In that newsletter, Stan Johnson stated
that all dreams and visions were viewed as "this saith the Lord"
and not to be questioned. [Bolding
"When Will it
Our office was contacted by Michael Boldea of Hand of Help
ministries. He told us that our 35 Prophecies, Dreams and
Visions booklet we offer has a misquote in it. He said in the
“When Will it Happen” message, it should read, “Tell the
people of America that one day with the Lord is as a thousand
years, and a thousand years as one day. If they will repent
and turn back to God, they will make it through the second day
to the third day. If they don’t, they will not make it.”
We printed it as, “If they will repent and turn back to God,
they will make it to the 2000 year mark. If they do not, they
will not make it to the 2000th year.
Small change, but it makes a big difference in interpretation.
I checked in their booklet, Dreams and Visions from God,
published in 1994 and sure enough, they were right!
How it got to me that way is still a mystery, because I
treat all dreams and visions as “thus saith the Lord” and
don’t make any changes, even spelling or grammatical changes
without the permission of the author. I checked our files
to see if I could find the original newsletter I took it from,
but it was not there so I will go along with Michael’s
I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused."
[bolding added] 22
Apparently false prophecy is merely overlooked with an 'oops',
blaming non-Christians or secular media or they weren't really
speaking on behalf of God, prophecy doesn't have to be accurate
something similar. That, and then we have many of the speakers'
false prophecies and date setting rather colliding with or
contradicting one another and not coming to pass.
Matthew 7:15 Beware of false
prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly
they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of
thorns, or figs of thistles?
Matthew 24:11 And many false
prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
