The Bible DOES Teach the Imminent Rapture of the Church…

when the great tribulation and the celestial disturbance event happens first:

“But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation has come near. Then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains. Those who are inside the city must depart. Those who are out in the country must not enter it, because these are days of vengeance, to fulfill all that is written. Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing their babies in those days! For there will be great distress on the earth and wrath against this people. They will fall by the edge of the sword and be led away as captives among all nations. Jerusalem will be trampled down by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. And there will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and on the earth nations will be in distress, anxious over the roaring of the sea and the surging waves. People will be fainting from fear and from the expectation of what is coming on the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man arriving in a cloud with power and great glory. But when these things begin to happen, stand up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” (Luke 21:20–28)

The Elect are Taken in Matt 24:31, NOT the Wicked…

I have never received a meaningful explanation from amillennialists, pretribulationists, and posttribulationists who think that in Jesus' Noahic analogy the wicked are taken to judgment and the righteous are left. This makes absolutely no sense … [Continue reading]

I am still waiting for a response from those who believe in the “recapitulation-cycles” theory of the book of Revelation

Over two years ago I wrote the article below that defends a consecutive-progressive view of the septets in the book of Revelation. I also demonstrated the internal contradictions of the concurrent-recapitulation framework (i.e. "cycles"). Typically … [Continue reading]
