Beware Of Dr. Peter Ruckman's Counterfeit Gospel

Genesis 15:3-6, “And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir. And, behold, the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir. And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.”

Habakkuk 2:4, Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

Romans 4:1-4, “What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found? For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God. For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.”

Acts 10:43, To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

The preceding Scripture passages, plainly put to rest the heretical idea that anyone in the history of human civilization has ever been, or ever will be, saved BY WORKS!!! The Apostle Paul makes it very clear in Romans 4:4 that if salvation has ever been by WORKS, then it was by DEBT and not by God's GRACE. That absolutely settles the matter dear friend. God does not owe any lost sinner eternal life. I am surprised at the utter ignorance of Pastor Peter S. Ruckman (1921-2016). I admire Dr. Ruckman for his excellent work in defense of the King James Bible, but unfortunately he drops the ball for God, utterly failing to rightly divide the Word of Truth concerning salvation in the Old Testament and in the future after the Rapture.

The following heretical teachings are from Dr. Ruckman. This is of the Devil, a false plan of salvation, blasphemy against the Word of God, and shameful...
What To Do In Case You Miss The Rapture by Dr. Peter Ruckman:

1. DON'T PANIC.
You were going to Hell anyway, and you never panicked then. You were just as LOST before the rapture (Eph. 2:1-5) as you are AFTER the rapture. If you didn't worry then or made fun of Hell then, or if you followed the educated idiots of your day who didn't believe God would send anyone to Hell, it will be no time to worry after you are left. You are lost either way. You have entered a period of time called 'the tribulation' and the plan of salvation in the tribulation is faith in Jesus Christ plus your own good works.

2. START WORKING YOUR WAY TO HEAVEN IMMEDIATELY.
In the tribulation, a man must keep the commandments (Rev. 14:12), and keep them "to the end" (Matt. 24:13). If he doesn't, he loses his salvation (Heb. 6:1-6) and burns in Hell (Heb. 10:26-31). You always believed in works before the rapture, or else you would have trusted Christ to save you by grace through faith (Eph. 2:8-9). Now that the rapture has happened, there is no more salvation by grace through faith, and you will be given an opportunity to show what a really fine moral character you are. Get to work! ... ~SOURCE
Oh my! What blasphemy! No Sir, if you miss out on the Pretribulation Rapture, you won't be able to start working your way to Heaven. If you are foolish enough to follow the deadly advice of Dr. Ruckman, you will sadly spend eternity burning in hell, fire and brimstone. Revelation 21:8, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death (cf. Revelation 20:11-15). Life is short, Hell is hot, and eternity is a long time!!!

The Bible is very clear that “ALL” the prophets (i.e., all Old Testament preachers), taught that remission of sins comes only through faith in the Messiah. Acts 10:43, To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.Dear reader, there has always been ONLY ONE Gospel. The Apostle Paul reiterates this truth in Galatians 1:6-7, I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.Dr. Ruckman (even postmortem) is perverting the Gospel, troubling the churches.

Some dispensationalists (I don't like or teach dispensational teaching) falsely teach that there was a different plan of salvation for Old Testament Jews under the law of Moses. They claim that whereas Abraham's faith was counted for righteousness (Genesis 15:6; Romans 4:1-7), the Jews under the law given to Moses by God were required to do WORKS in addition to having faith in Christ. Folks, the Bible does not agree with those dispensationalists and Dr. Ruckman (who they follow as their unofficial leader). Dr. Ruckman died in 2016, but he still has a devout cult following of preachers and religious men worldwide.

Dear friend, salvation has never been, nor will it ever be, by partial faith in Christ plus WORKS. Romans 4:1-4, “What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found? For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God. For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.” God doesn't owe any lost sinner anything except Hell.

In the Old Testament, if the Jews failed to keep the moral, ceremonial and civil laws of God (there were about 720 laws total), God judged the nation of Israel. It had nothing to do with their salvation. When the Israelites failed to keep the Sabbath Day for 490 years, God punished them by sending them into captivity in Babylon for 70 years (one year for every 7 years they didn't keep the Sabbath Day).

If keeping the Old Testament law of Moses were necessary to get to Heaven, then those Jews who were carried off into Babylonian captivity couldn't have been saved, because there was no tabernacle, holy place or mercy seat in Babylon. There was no lamb sacrifice. But we know that they were saved by faith alone, without works. ...
Romans 4:1-7, “What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found? For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God. For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.”
Carefully notice that the preceding passage of Scripture speaks about being justified by God's grace through faith WITHOUT WORKS. Also, please notice that this passage speaks about Abraham, who lived before the law of Moses; and then David, who lived under the law of Moses. The Bible says they were both justified by faith. Romans 4:6-7, “Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.” Dear reader, you just read it for yourself. King David lived approximately at 1,000 BC, and Moses lived at approximately 1,500 BC. Abraham lived around 2,000 BC. So we see clearly that David was under the Mosaic law when he said that God imputeth righteousness WITHOUT WORKS. Kindly said, Peter Ruckman is a dirty theological LIAR!!! In fact, Biblically, no one was ever saved BY WORKS in human civilization.
