Christian Apocalyptic Paperback Author Grant Jeffrey Has Died

Jim Fletcher reports at WND:

Grant Jeffrey, the Canadian teacher who took the marketing of Bible prophecy to new and unprecedented heights, has passed away. He was 63.

Jeffrey entered full-time ministry in 1988, with his wife, Kaye. Jeffrey’s communication skills quickly gained the attention of the public, and he launched Frontier Research Publications, a publishing arm that allowed him independence in distributing his message. He also worked with several mainstream publishers, including WaterBrook, HarperCollins, Zondervan, Word, and Tyndale House.

A thorough researcher, Jeffrey would go on to write 27 books, which have sold seven million copies, and have been printed in 24 languages.

In fact, Jeffrey never marketed “Bible prophecy”; instead, he used Bible prophecy to market a farrago of fear-mongering conspiracy theories, subjecting Biblical texts to the most egregious eisegesis. His books include The Signature of God: Astonishing Bible Codes Reveal September 11 Terror Attacks (“Remarkable new computer discoveries from the Bible Codes reveal astonishing details about the September 11 Islamic terrorist attack on America that were encoded in Hebrew text thousands of years ago”); The Next World War: What Prophecy Reveals about Extreme Islam and the West (“How Russia and extreme Islam will launch World War III”); and Millennium Meltdown: Spiritual and Practical Strategies to Survive Y2K (“explores the potential of the disastrous Year 2000 computer meltdown that will set the stage for the rise of the world government of the Antichrist” – Jeffrey attempted to justify his scaremongering in January 2000). Last year, he brought out The Global-Warming Deception (“How a secret elite plans to bankrupt America and steal your freedom”).

In 2009, Jeffrey bizarrely shared top billing at a rally with Karl Rove. Fletcher’s article includes statements of appreciation from his peers: Hal Lindsey (whose books, we should remember, include The 1980s: Countdown to Armageddon), William T. “Terry” James of Rapture Ready, and Bob Ulrich of Prophecy in the News. According to Ulrich:

“If Hal Lindsey’s ‘Late Great Planet Earth’ defined the prophetic landscape for the 80s and this generation, Grant Jeffrey took things to a whole new level. Heralding the pre-millennial revival, Grant perfected the art of the prophecy book in a way no one ever did before. Spectacular new discoveries; cutting edge research; timely subjects that were on the minds of the public – there was no end to the excitement he created…”

  1. Awesome. I love fundamentalist conspiracy theories. I’m currently reading Pat Robertson’s New World Order, in which we learn that the Illuminati, via their chosen vehicle the Freemasons (who are worshippers of Lucifer) plan to bring about one world government and destroy the church.

    Funnily enough, I never came across Grant Jeffrey in all my years as a God Botherer, but then there are a lot of people like him.

    • I’ll clue you in… The Jesuits control the Illuminati and the Black Pope is an alien.

    • Johnny Scaramanga… you’re an idiot. Freemasons do not worship Lucifer. The “G” in the Freemason logo represents the God of the Bible, and no other. We are obligated to see the Bible as our guide for our lives.

  4. I was sad to hear Grant Jeffery pass away. The decisions we make in this life time are extremely important. The only thing I was concerned about was I thought I had one time heard him say it was ok to take the microchip in your body as long as you did not serve the antichrist. That makes me question where he might have gone after he passed away. Jesus says, he is not the author of confusion. He also said to certain people depart from me I never knew you. They said to him did we not do mighty works in your name. I hope he went to heaven! God called his life early for some reason.
