Jack Van Impe
Feb. 3, 2007: “My video 11:59 is good news. It means one minute before the return of Christ. It’s right at the door” [Matt. 24:33].
—Jack Van Impe
“Thus says the Lord God, Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing” (Ezek. 13:3).
Van Impe has been predicting the return of Christ for decades. All his predictions have failed.
On his February 3, 2007 telecast, he neglected to mention that Christ was “right at the door” in the first century:
“8…the coming of the Lord is at hand. 9…behold, the Judge is standing at the door” (Jas. 5:8b, 9b, ESV throughout).
Now that Van Impe’s “return of Christ” has failed to take place, does anyone remember his prediction? Will there be throngs of Christians calling him to account? Probably not. However, this record of his failed prediction will be available at Preterism.info long after his “one minute” is up.
Also, I wonder whether Van Impe would be willing to submit to the biblical punishment for making false predictions in the name of God:
“20‘…the prophet who presumes to speak a word in my name that I have not commanded him to speak…that same prophet shall die.’ 21And if you say in your heart, ‘How may we know the word that the LORD has not spoken?’— 22when a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word that the LORD has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You need not be afraid of him” (Deut. 18:20-22).
May 1, 2010: Van Impe claims the return of Christ is “right at the door” (10:56) more than three years after his previous prediction.
May 15, 2010: Van Impe claims we are living in the “last hours” (14:37) after claiming we were in the last minute in 2007. The apostle John proclaimed he was living in the “last hour” almost 2,000 years ago (1 John 2:18). I suggest we believe the word of the inspired, “holy” apostle John (Eph. 3:5) over any contradictory claims made by Jack or Rexella Van Impe.
In the following video, notice how the Van Impes bring ridicule on the name of Jesus with another outrageously stupid prediction: Watch video.
