|Sam Gipp displays his intelligence with point 2: "Who's is he talking you? Jews"|
He even made the exact same mistakes as he did the first time, like when he claimed that there were only about 2 million people on the earth at the time of Christ - there were actually 200 million. The Bible records an army of Ethiopians that had 1 million people in it. Apparently Sam Gipp thinks that half the world's population in Bible days were Ethiopian soldiers. He should have watched my textual commentary of his sermon to at least correct a few basic errors. Since their is no video archive of his first sermon from the Anti-Anderson Conference, you can just watch this video of his sermon from 3 years ago since it was virtually the same sermon anyway!
When he got to the part in the sermon where he normally denies that Jesus is his Messiah, he left that part out this time.
This evening (Monday), I was able to tune in to the last half hour or so of Gipp's sermon, and it was non-stop jokes and rabbit trails. The part that I saw had virtually nothing to with the tribulation, the rapture, or anything else pertaining to the subjects at hand. He went on and on about the difference between the angels Michael and Gabriel, and he talked a lot about Lucifer in Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28, Jesus being tempted in the wilderness and fasting 40 days and 40 nights, etc. I have no idea what these things had to do with the point of his sermon or with the point of this conference. It seemed like it was just some of his favorite material that he uses on the road, so he pulled it out to fill time.
When Keith Gomez got up at the end for the altar call and invitation, he seemed disappointed and desperate since Sam Gipp had delivered no proof for a pre-trib rapture, so he quickly got out his two most powerful points on why After the Tribulation is wrong:
1. The great men of the past can't have been wrong. "We already fought these battles."
2. Don't listen to preachers on the internet.
Gomez then provided an opportunity for those who had "changed their view" on the rapture as a result of the sermon to come to the altar (even though the sermon wasn't even talking about the timing of the rapture).
If you don't have time to watch the above video of Sam Gipp's often repeated sermon against After the Tribulation with my textual commentary on the screen (I don't blame you!), here is a short highlight for you:
