Directory of Bible Prophecy Teachers
This directory of Bible Prophecy teachers is needed. Anyone with an interest in Bible Prophecy can become a Bible Prophecy teacher or Bible Prophecy New’s website.
The intention of this directory is to set a standard of excellence for Bible Prophecy teachers and Bible Prophecy new’s websites.
A Bible Prophecy new’s website should hold the sames standards as professional journalists and reference top of the line sources, after all it is acting as a new’s site. The Bible Prophecy teacher should be correct doctrinally and also have a scholarly knowledge of the prophetic forecasts. The teacher should also have a good understanding of international affairs. If a site focuses on one area of Bible Prophecy and specializes and does well in that area, it still qualifies for a rating of excellence.
On the internet exist some Bible Prophecy directories, but what they claim is the best index for Bible Prophecy teachers are nothing more than link lists. This is a comprehensive directory.
In this register I provide a breif review of each Bible Prophecy site and Bible Prophecy teacher and offer explanations for their rating. I highlight a Bible Prophecy teacher’s errors and strengths based on the above standard.
The information on this page is so extensive that it is broken up to links that open to more content. But first more:
Bible Prophecy Teacher Directory- Seven Catogories
This directory is broken into seven catagories.
1. Bible Prophecy teachers or websites who get an excellent rating- To get an excellent rating is the top rating for this directory and will be achieved by few. To achieve a rating of excellence the overall presentation and anaylsis is outstanding compared to their peers on the internet.
2. Bible Prophecy Teachers who in all areas get a good rating.
3. Bible Prophecy Teachers who get both a good and bad rating meaning they might be real strong in one area such as theology but are weak in the area of analysis of international affairs.
4. Bible Prophecy teachers who get a bad rating.
5. Bible Prophecy teachers who get an ugly rating.
6. The No Go Zones- these Bible Prophecy teachers either belong to Cults or are Cult websites, which flood the first pages of Google under Bible Prophecy search terms.
7. False Prophets- Out and out false prophets.
Criteria for Bible Prophecy Teacher Directory
1. Evangelical Christian Doctrine as a basis
2. Accuracy of interpretation of Prophetic forecasts
3. Knowledge of International Affairs
4. Knowledge of Prophetic Passages
5. Website Presentation
Lending to this are the individuals credentials, but an individual can prove themselves through their work alone if it excells in the above criteria.
Each site is unique and there are specialists in various areas, these will be highighted.
List of Teachings that Grade Bible Prophecy Teachers Bad
Automatic disqualifications for “Good” Bible Prophecy teachers are as follows:
1. Conspiracy theorist
2. Gross errors in facts regarding the European Union, various nations or the workings of international organizations
3. Overemphasis on United States politics
4. Citing fake news sites in your list of international new’s sources
5. Grade D or below sources-in the world of journalism there are grade A sources and every journalist knows these. If a site is reporting Bible Prophecy news it is acting as a new’s source and should hold the same standard of excellence as digital newspapers and magazines.
6. Beast of Revelation is Islam
7. Predicted Mahdi will be the Antichrist
8. Literal Babylon view which identifies Babylon as modern Iraq
9 Ephreim and Mannaseh are Great Britain and the United States
10 United States is Babylon or Beast of Revelation
11 Two legs of Daniel identified as Byzantine and Ottoman Empires
12. Geopolitical Terms that are dated
13. Cliche Bible Prophecy terms
14. Over reliance on US new’s sources.
15. Copyright violations
16. Gross immorality on the part of the teacher
While this directory is sure to anger those who get bad ratings and their followers, it is a register that is long overdue and should have been written sometime ago to set a standard in these end times when anyone can put up a website.
Purpose of the Bible Prophecy Teachers Directory
The internet is flooded with Bible Prophecy information and Bible Prophecy new’s sites: this directory will help raise the bar and help those who follow Bible Prophecy and Bible Prophecy news to find the best teachers who are online and to stay away from sites that are essentially teaching junk material that belongs in the trash bin.
Fake News and Fake Bible Prophecy News
Fake news is rampant on the social networks misleading the public on new’s events. Before fake news became an issue and made the headlines, it existed in Evangelical Christian prophecy circles. Paul predicted in 2 Timothy 3:13:
But evil men and imposters will grow worse and worse, decieving and being decieved,
He added in 4:3-4
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers, and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.
The word Fables in Greek
The word Fables in the Greek is from the word mythos. It means an invention, a falsehood, a story. A fiction story, meaning that is is made up.
We see also in 1 Timothy 4: 7 Paul’s admonision, “But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exxercise thyself rather unto godliness.”
This is exactly what is being taught by many Bible Prophecy teachers in their analysis of Bible Prophecy and Current Events. They are teaching lies, and fiction. Especially in the way of conspiracy theories and unfounded, and geopolitically impossible probabilities. In addition Google lumps all of these false teachers, with their fake Bible Prophecy new’s sites together. Therefore as a warning, Do not rely on Google Search Results for the best Bible Prophecy sites,
This directory will be added to continuously and will become more complete over time. So be sure to check back as more names and websites are added.
DIRECTORY OF BIBLE PROHECY TEACHERS AND WEBSITES-
The Good, the Bad& Ugly,
and False Prophets
Rabbi Tuly Weisz
Bible Prophecy new’s sites in this directory are judged on Christian doctrine. Despite Breaking Israel News being a Jewish website it ranks excellent in this directory. The site embraces Christian Zionists and offers a good deal of information that aligns with our own in Bible Prophecy.
The site has excellence of layout and of reporting from a global perspectve. It also has its own section on Bible Prophecy and we see as well developments relating to the Third Temple. I like its motto phrase, which states, “our bias is not liberal or conservative just Biblical.” This is the mistake made by some Bible Prophecy sites that have rated bad in this directory. They focus on US conservative politics vs. Bible Prophecy itself.
Sovereign Grace Advent Testimony –This little site based in the UK is a find. It will never rank on the first pages of Google but it more than passes all catagories and criteria with a grade of excellence. Geopolitically and doctrinally on target, it exposits on prophetic passages with depth and detail. On their reading and for sale page I saw Ian Paisley who I quoted in my book the Seat of the Antichcrist: Bible Prophecy and the European Union.
Ian Paisly was an Irish evangelical minister and politician who became a member of the European Parliament in 1970. He had a website that is no longer online that focused in the European Union, which was the European Community as the Beast of Revelation and he provided valuable insights. Paisley was at that time the leading expert on the European Union and Bible Prophecy until his death in 2008. Paisley also founded the Free
Presbyrtarian Church of Ulster.
Jan Markell’s website features several other writers and good information, I read an excellent article on the site that delved into a phrase in the book of Daniel in great depth and it was refreshing to read and seeing that level of analysis on her site helped her achieve a good ranking.
Jan Markell’s website is easy to navigate and you learn quickly where she (the site) stands doctrinally and in the area of Bible Prophecy. She is not embracing or offering any analysis that falls into any of the catagories that would give her a bad rating in the area of Bible Prophecy news.
Rather Jan’s website presentation is professional and meets the standards of this directory for an excellent rating for what Jan’s ministry attempts to relay, “Understanding the Times in which we live, “which is the aim of Olive Tree broadcasts. To learn more about her radio programs visit Olive Tree’s website.
Chris Schang’s Rapture Forums gets an excellent rating and is the place to go for end time news discussion. He is right on doctrinally and a big plus for this site is he does not publish articles from conspiracy theorists niether does he allow other areas that have been deemed bad and ugly in this directory but instead he sticks to unfolding world news, which he does a pretty good job of covering.
This is not to say some of those topics wont come up in discussions, but he will not publish articles from contributors writing on those topics. While he does not publish his sources it is no doubt based on his content he has a decent grasp on world news. His audience also pays attention to European elections, and is focused globally instead of just in US politics, which is another reason his site is rated excellent. Chris
Schang set this direction in his standards
Dr. Thomas Ice
PreTrib Research Center
Formed in 1993 by Dr. Timothy Lahaye and Dr. Thomas Ice. The PTRC was concieved by Dr. LaHaye for the purpose of encouraging the research, teaching, propogation, and defense of the pretribulation rapture and related Bible prophecy doctrines. There is great teaching and depth on this website. Rated Excellent.
Prophecy Dude’s Report Focuses on the Signs of the End Times and he more than does a good job at it. He provides analysis and insights along with focusing on the signs that will lead to the end at which he does a superb job. His website is simple and easy to follow and full of good information.
Hal Lindsey is a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary and a pioneer and leader in the field of relating current events to Bible Prophecy. His book “The Late Great Planet Earth” has been read by millions. In it in as early as 1970 when he published his book, he sited the European Communities as the beginning of the Revived Roman Empire, when their were only the original six member countries and the UK had not yet joined or the Common Market Directives enacted. Excellent analysis.
Hal Lindsey has his regular show “Prophecy Report” where he comments on the headlines. What pulls Hal Lindsey grade from excellent to good is that he only has the BBC as his European Union new’s source, which is not regarded as a key source for EU news. He also sites the Drudge Report, which is a conservative aggregate site. This seems to be common in US Bible Prophecy teachers to consult aggregate sites versus the sites directly, and it is unprofessional on the part of the Bible Prophecy new’s site, which acts as an aggregator site to its audience.
Lamb and Lion Ministries
There is no doubt that David Reagan has impressive credentials to qualify for a Bible Prophecy ministry. He has written more than several books. He graduate degrees were earned in the field of inernational relations from the Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy of Tufts and Harvard Universities. His career was in higher education and he lectured on US foreign policy for the US information agency in Southeast Asia. His focus is more evangelical and on Christ in prophecy.
Reagan’s website appears to not delve more than into a general analysis of world events but he does provide decent teaching on the forecasts themselves. For this reason he does not get an excellent rating in this directory because this directory grades also on that analysis, but he does in fact deserve a good rating. He also wrote a good piece on Joel Richardson and Walid Shoebat on why their Islam is the Beast of Revelation theory is flawed.
Rapture Ready has a really neat Bible Prophecy concept which is to act as a barometer to the start of the Tribulation. It is accurate in its assessment of the European Union as the revived Roman Empire that will launch the Antichrist. Why is is not in the excellent catagory is in part because its links are questionable because it too links to sites that are rated Bad and Ugly on this directory such as Prophecy Watchers,World Net Daily, and Now the End Begins.
Terry James has written a fiction book dealing with the Nephalum that he states took him eight months to write during a period when Bible Prophecy news is unfolding at an unprecidented rate and it seems to have taken from what has the potential to not just be a good site, but an excellent site.
RATED GOOD AND BAD
Church of God website, which belongs to the Pentecostal church. While they offer good general information on
the end times, signs of the times, and Bible Prophecy, and for this they get a
is Great Britain and the United States is Manasseh. There might be some affiliation because Armstrong’s group is the United Church of God., www.ucg.org (Beyond Today).
Irwin Baxter is a mixture of good and bad. The good is that he is not a conspiracy theorist, and offers some decent information. He is right on with his identity of the Whore of Baylon and he offerered some accurate details on the Revived Roman Empire, but the good does not outweigh the bad.
The bad is that doctrinally he holds some beliefs that are questionable. He had no formal training at a seminary to be a pastor yet he was a pastor and evangelist. Also in the area of his end time teachings he uses some terms that are cliche in Bible Prophecy circles and dated. He cited “the Economist” as the key source for EU news, which although a great publication is not a key source.
Baxter’s ministry is heavy on getting money for his books and DVD’s. He hardly offers any of his information without gettng paid. According to an article in the Dallas Observer his ministry takes in millions and most of his family is on the payroll. A good deal goes on travel expenses.
Baxter stated that he visited Israel over 30 times, with all of his travel he can’t possibly keep up with the study required to offer decent analysis. He does not believe in the Rapture and has come out with some off the wall analysis.
For more on his wacky teachings read the account written about him in Sound Christian’s Who’s Who of Bible Prophecy. Baxter’s work borders on sensationalism, such as stating that on November 2, 2009 the Holy Roman Empire was reborn. Not only are his facts off there and this is not true, but it is clickbait. It seems that the purpose of his ministry is making money.
David Wilkinson has no special experience in the area of geopolitics or journalism and his website evidences his lack of expertise and only adds to the nonsence on the internet touted as end time Bible Prophecy news. Not only is his sight poorly structured and lacking information available on other sites, along with relevant coorelations, but the facts he provides on the EU and Bible Prophecy are bare bones.
Wilkinson does get right that the EU is the revived Roman Empire and his facts in that area are right on until he starts to talk about the defunct Western European Union and former EU High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy, Secretary-General of NATO, Javier Solana as the Antichrist. Wilkinson is waiting for Solana to reimerge and while his site is fixated on Solana, he provides no good reason as to why he chose him. His site belongs in kooksville. I could barely read through the misconsrued facts on the defenct Western European Union and his utterly poor comparison of it being the ten nation division of the revived Roman Empire, which is ceased to exist at the launch of the Lisbon treaty of 2009, which was agreed to in 2007.
He and his website, which are rated bad is why this directory exists and he is the poster boy for someone who has an interest and a far fetched, wacky conviction and ideas who puts up a website and is now on the information highway for anyone searcing to find.
Amy Van Gerpen
Amy Van Gerpen had an interest in Bible Prophecy
for many years and put up a website. She has not written a book. She lists among
her sources those who are conspiracy theorists, one fake new’s site and others
who hold that the Beast of Revelation is Islam.
Under Amy’s “the nationality of the Antichrist” tab she misinterprets the
book of Daniel, stating that the two legs on the image, which show the final world empire in its state during the Tribulation are really the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires which followed from the Roman Empire.
Amy continues toprovide more erroneous analysis and takes the view that the Babylon of
Revelation 17 and 18 is literal and is therefore Iraq. She also erroneously states that it was not the Romans who really destroyed the second Temple under Titus but Middle Easterners and that the Antichrist will rise from the Middle East and totally discounts
viable Scriptures on the area the Antichrist will really rise from. Her new’s headlines are mostly all from the Middle East and not global news in her focus, she does not have one article on the European Union and overly focuses on US news and highlights articles with
little to no relevance to end time Bible Prophecy and current events.
Amy Van Gerpen is an example of what happens when someone has enough interest in Bible Prophecy andthinks that she can now become a source for others. She felt that her being a meteorologist and making weather forecasts gave her the credentials to forecast end time Bible Prophecy. To her credit she did put up a nice site and with a few glances and clicks you get the impression that this is a viable information site until you in fact begin to really read through itand see that she is pushing the same garbage as other Bad Bible Prophecy siteswhich is why the area of Bible Prophecy has so little respect.
Ron Graff identifies himself as an apologetist and has graduated seminary and has written books, and this should have put Ron Graff into the Good, Bad catagory, but
read why he got a bad rating in this directory.
Geoffrey S. Grider
Geoffrey Grider is a street preacher, and has an outreach tract ministry. Grider’s business is web developing annd he has managed to get his website to rank on the first pages of Google under the Bible Prophecy news search terms. His site is essentially a sounding board for Convervative US politics first and foremost and Bible Prophecy second. His site has actually been listed among fake news sites. He is niether a Bible Scholar or analyst and has not written any books.
Grider shares fake news and most likely because he doesnt know any better. He also embraces conspiracy theories. He has violated others copyright on his Youtube channel by uploading other site’s material- again most likely out of his ignorance. He has also published articles that reveal how little he knows in the area of international affairs. Such as the article that the Greek Prime Minister Tsipras was a candidate for the Antichrist not long after he lost the EU elections for its leading presidency. On a media bias fact check he scored low in facts and high in reporting conspiracies.
John Hagee, pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio Texas has authored books on the end times that do not appear to tout conspriacy theories or the Islamic Beast of Revelation , as a matter of fact, John Hagee stated that the Antichrist will head the European Union and he is right on target.
Hagee’s book on the Blood Moons and his resulting predictions did not occur causing him to lose credibility. Even worse in his book regarding Israel and on video he stated that Jesus was not the Messiah to the Jews, which is false prophet language. In addition, he had an affair on his wife and married a woman while his Christian wife is still alive, which is in defiance of a Biblical command to born again Christian couples.”
1 Corinthians 7:10-11 states: : There are other areas where Hagee is questioned. For all of this Hagaii gets a bad rating.
Lisa Havens is a conspiracy theorist who touts herself as an independent Christian news analyst. Her bio is listed on the fake new’s site beforeitisnews.com, which is the outfit she writes for. She has a website and a youtube channel with over several hundred thousand subscribers and even speaks at prophecy conferences. She is one rung up from a false prophet on this directory.
Haven’s numbers are not an indication of her presenting any truth at all, but rather show how easily the Christian masses are swayed by conspiracy theories. She is niether a journalist or an analyst, but purely a conspiracy theorist.
Chuck Missler is no doubt a smart man given his background as former engineer and businessman. He has written books on learning the Bible along with teaching books of various books of the Bible. This should have given Missler a good rating, but his bad is so bad he gets an ugly rating along with the conspiracy theorists for taking Bible Prophecy into a whole new area of nutville.
“This is extremely suggestive when viewed in light of the warning of our Lord in Luke 17:26, ostensibly directing us to look more closely at Genesis 6.
In addition to Missler’s false teachings, he is guilty of plagurizing two books and he erroniously predicted that the Y2K bug would go to 0 and begin the apocalypse.
For all kinds of Ugly in the area of end time Bible Prophecy teachings and following in the footsteps of Chuck Missler but with even greater sensationalism and fiction are the Prophecy Watchers and their websites reads like a Who’s Who of propogators of lies and deception and pure fiction.
Tom Horn is theThe Author of Exo Vaticana Petrus Romanus, Project L.U.C.I.F.E.R. the last pope prophecy (not from the Bible) and the alien Savior.
JR Church recieved recieved a degree from the reputed rock solid Tennessee Temple. His interest in Bible Prophecy led him to start Prophecy in the news. The website lacks in listing his positions on end time teachings other than his publishing articles and news from other publications. There is also no analysis of how any of the headlines relate to the prophetic forecasts.
Churches books and vidoes offered seem to fall in the camp of general Bible Prophecy analysis to Joel Richardson and Gary Stearman, who rank near false prophets in their level of sensationalism, and misuse of the prophetic forecasts and taking away from the forecasts in the book of Revelation by their teachings which Jesus more than condemned. For this J.R. Church gets a bad rating even though he has produced some decent material on his website.
Joel Richardson teaches the Islamic Beast of Revelation and the Islamic Antichrist deception. It is no surprise that he is tied in with World Net Daily. Instant Bad Rating
Walid Shoebat is another teacher of the Islamic Antichrist decpetion. An Instant bad rating in this directory.
SeeLion and Lamb ministrys article against the teachings of Joel Richardson and Walid Shoebat’s Islamic Beast of Revelation See also The Islamic Antichrist Deception
World Net Daily
WND is an American news and opinion website and an online news aggregator which many Bible Prophecy News sites list as if having it on their site is a right of passage in the Bible Prophecy new’s world. It is a new’s aggregator and Bible Prophecy new’s sites should be consulting key top of the line sources and acting as aggregator to their audience. But, listing WND on their website as their new’s source discretics any Bible Prophecy news reporter.
WND has been listed as a fake new’s site or a site that prints fake news. WND’s editor in chief Joseph Farah is of Syrian and Lebanese descent and embraces the false Islamic Antichrist teaching. Farah disregards the European Union as an entity and also as the revived Roman Empire . Although the name of his publicaiton is World Net, it does not focus on World News. This is not a shock given that Farah is a US journalist who focuses on US news. Listing his publiciation is an automatic discredit to any Bible Prophecy New’s site that should list decent sources for international world affairs.
RATED NO GO ZONE
The no go list are the list of the Cults that have a presence on the first pages of Google and which have published Bible Prophecy material. it is shocking at what level these exist within Bible Prophecy search terms and scary because they are designed by Satan to lead to a teaching that takes one away from the Salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ and by His Blood. These are just plain areas that no Christian should go and if they see it is cult website they should immediatly exit. They should also know their teachers are from this list.

RATED FALSE PROPHETS
Paul Begley’s website states that he is a Pastor, Evangelist, Gospel Singer and his ministry has brought many souls to the Lord, but he has no degree from a Seminary qualifying him. Also on his church is no doctrinal statement, so what is his basis for Salvation? He became s a Youtuber commenting on headlines, he offers no real analysis and how could he with so many other irons in the fire in his life.
