Play

Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadI replied to Andy Woods who thinks the prewrath position contradicts itself.

No Signs but Signs – A Major Inconsistency on Imminency with Pretrib Teachers

Pretribulational eschatology teaches that the rapture is “signless” or “unannounced,” while the second coming will be preceded by signs and thus “announced.” There cannot be any intervening prophetic events or signs that will occur before the rapture.

In addition, […]
