Beware of “ENDTIME Ministries” at EndTime.com
By David J. Stewart
ENDTIME Ministries requires water baptism for salvation and denies the literal Godhead (Trinity). I wouldn't just make a fuss over ENDTIME.com's unbiblical Postribulation position (which is not a fundamental doctrine of the Bible); but requiring water baptism for salvation is where I draw the line, because salvation most certainly is a fundamental Bible doctrine. Irvin Baxter Jr. is part of the Pentecostal Oneness cult and is leading people into the Lake of Fire with his false gospel.
Numerous Websites are Promoting ENDTIME.com's False Gospel
There is only one gospel. Adding anything to the gospel is to corrupt the simplicity which is in Christ. Everyone that visits ENDTIME.COM is being taught that water baptism is the way to Heaven. That's a false gospel!
No one was water baptized in the Old Testament. The thief on the cross was never baptized with water. The Apostle John penned the Epistle of 1st John (under inspiration by God) to show us how we could “KNOW” for certain we are saved (1st John 5:13); yet John NEVER mentions baptism even once. That's solid proof that water baptism is NOT a part of saving-faith. Please read, Facing Uncertain Death, Troops Line Up for Baptism?
I'll expose anybody, anywhere, who propagates a false gospel (and so should every believer if you love the Lord Jesus Christ). On their website, ENDTIME Ministries teaches the devil doctrine of Baptismal Regeneration...
"Next, the Bible teaches that we are baptized into His name, and that’s when our sins are remitted. The Bible says,
'Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins…' (Acts 2:38) [NKJV].
That means that payment is being made for our sins. The Bible says that, “as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death…” (Romans 6:3) [NKJV]. When we go down in baptism by immersion, in the name of Jesus Christ, His death is applied to pay our sin bill. ..."

HERESY!!! You don't get saved when you're immersed into a baptistry filled with water. You get saved when you acknowledge your guilt of sin (your sinnership) and trust upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ Who died, was buried and rose again as payment for your sins. Being water baptized doesn't make you a Christian anymore than walking into a garage makes you a car.
Baptismal Regeneration is a lie of the Devil and a road to Hell. You don't get saved through water baptism. Salvation is the gift of God, by grace through faith in the Lamb of God (Ephesians 2:8-9). Irvin Baxter is a heretic and errs woefully concerning the Scriptures! If you follow Baxter's false gospel, you'll go straight to Hell when you die. Water baptism has absolutely NO PART in Biblical salvation!!!
Irvin Baxter hosts the popular radio broadcast, “POLITICS & RELIGION” and is founder of Endtime Ministries at EndTime.com. Baxter does not accept the Biblical doctrine of the Godhead (Trinity), and is affiliated with the United Pentecostal Church, which claims its methods are the only true way to salvation. Baxter is caught up into the PENTECOSTAL ONENESS heresy which denies the Godhead (Trinity). Although subtle, the doctrine of Pentecostal Oneness is distinctly different than the Biblical Godhead. Pentecostal Oneness teaches that there are no separate Persons of the Godhead. The Bible distinctly mentions God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. 1st John 5:7 says these THREE are ONE.
Anyone who denies Jesus' deity is unsaved. Anyone who denies the Godhead is unsaved. Anyone who teaches that water baptism is mandatory for salvation is unsaved. ENDTIME Ministries deny the Trinity!
Irvin Baxter also rejects a pretribulation Rapture based upon a faulty understanding of Revelation 20:4-6 and Matthew 24. Concerning Matthew 24, the Bible teaches that God will separate the tares from the wheat. Matthew 25:32-33, “And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.” This is NOT the Rapture. Irvin Baxter doesn't rightly divide the word of truth. This is not the Rapture as Baxter teaches. The Biblical Rapture will happen before the 7-year Tribulation, for several reasons. The Rapture will happen BEFORE the 7-year Tribulation, and then the Judgment Seat of Christ (2nd Corinthians 5:9-11) and Marriage Supper of the Lamb (Revelation 19:9) will immediately follow (for all the saints).
The unsaved who are LEFT BEHIND on earth will suffer God's fury and vengeance. BILLIONS of people will die (Revelation 9:18). The nation of Israel will be purged during the Tribulation and prepared for the coming of her King. The 144,000 soul-winners will likely be Jews who are converted after they see the Rapture and believe upon the Lord. Many people will be saved during the Tribulation and will be beheaded by the New World Order (Revelation 20:4). 1st Thessalonians 4:17 is solid evidence of a Pretribulation Rapture (when the saints are Caught Up). This is very different than the Second Coming when the Lord will return 'WITH ten thousands of His saints' (Jude 1:14). The Lord came 2,000 years ago TO His own (the Jews); He is coming at the Rapture FOR His own (the saints); and He is coming 7-years later at the Second Coming WITH His own (the saints). If you take the Bible at face value, you can only conclude a Pretribulation Rapture.
If you want to understand Biblical prophecy, then please check out some of the free excellent resources on my website's BIBLE PROPHECY WEBPAGE. There's much dangerous teachings on the internet. Much Bible Prophecy online is produced by demonic Seventh Day Adventists (like Doug Batchelor and Steve Wohlberg). You won't go to Hell for being wrong on eschatology (the study of end times), but you will go to Hell for believing a false gospel (ANOTHER GOSPEL, 2nd Corinthians 11:3-4).
2nd Corinthians 11:3-4, “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.”
Saving our nation isn't one-trillionth as important as the salvation of men's souls from the Lake of Fire. What does it profit a man if he gains the world, but then goes to Hell forever? Jesus said that it's better to enter into Heaven crippled and maimed, than to be cast healthy and whole into the fires of Hell for all eternity to be tormented day and night without rest forever!!!!!
I understand the End Times just fine... heretics are crawling out of the woodwork. The Bible foretold that many false prophets would arise, deceiving the masses of the world. ENDTIME.com is of the Devil. Eternal life is by grace through faith in Christ Jesus; and NOT by water baptism nor amending one's sinful ways. God does the changing! Our part as admitted guilty sinners is simply to believe on Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God. The gift of salvation is to him that WORKETH NOT. Romans 4:5, “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.”
ENDTIME Ministries is a false ministry which teaches a false gospel. They teach Baptismal Regeneration and Lordship Salvation. They deny the bodily Godhead.
Matthew 24:11, “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.”
Mark 13:22: “For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.”
