(VIDEO) An Easy Refutation of Pretrib Pastor Joey Wampler on the 24 Elders

I have replied to this common pretrib argument before here and here. Incidentally, pastor Wampler, first, you have to understand that Steven Anderson holds to a warped view of the prewrath rapture. He is not representative of the prewrath position. Second, you said that Steven Anderson has a skewed interpretation of this passage. That is […]

(VIDEO) The BACKSTORY to Scottie Clarke’s FIRST Failed Prediction of the Rapture

(For future reference, you can follow my ongoing series critiquing Scott Clarke’s “Great Sign of Revelation 12” theory at this link.)

A Reply to Pretrib Rapturist Bill Salus on His ‘Gap Between the Rapture and the Seven-Year Period’ Theory

There are a number of pretrib teachers who place a gap between the rapture and the day of the Lord/7 year period.

These pretrib teachers […]

A Reply to Billy Crone’s Defamation Against Christians Who Love Jews and Affirm a Future Israel

“For we are not like many, peddling the word of God, but as from sincerity, but as from God, we speak in Christ in the sight of God.” (2 Cor 2:17) Notice the last statement in the verse above: “we speak in Christ in the sight of God.” Evidently, this statement does not register with […]

An Apt Reply to Those Who Think the Olivet Discourse is “Jewish” and Therefore Not Instruction for the Church

In the 19th century, S. P. Tregelles wrote the best book responding to the first generation of pretribulationism, The Hope of Christ’s Second Coming. It is filled with nuggets and is required reading for any prewrather. He had a lot to say to the pretrib notion that the Olivet Discourse was not instruction for the […]
