(VIDEO) A Reply to Scott Clarke’s ‘The Great Sign of Revelation 12’ Theory

I want to respond to a few points in a video from Scott Clarke, who evidently introduced the recent “Great Sign Revelation 12” theory (the video is down below). I will be responding to him more in the future on various aspects of his pretribulational Revelation 12 rapture theory. So this is just the first […]

Do NOT Read Back 16th Century English Translations into Apostasia in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 to Mean a Physical Departure! – Ep. 87

http://traffic.libsyn.com/thebiblicalprophecyprogram/Do_NOT_Read_Back_Sixteenth_Century_English_Translations_into_Apostasia.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedI responded to what is arguably the most desperate argument defending that the Greek noun apostasia in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 refers to the rapture. Those who argue for this, claim that because some early sixteenth English translations use the English term “departure” (e.g. Coverdale, Tyndale, Geneva Bible) […]

The Greek Noun Apostasia Never Means a ‘Physical-Spatial Departure,’ e.g. the Rapture in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 (Part 3) – Ep. 86

http://traffic.libsyn.com/thebiblicalprophecyprogram/The_Greek_Noun_Apostasia_Never_Means_a_Physical_Spatial_Departure_part_3.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedI responded to this most common argument by those who think that the Greek noun apostasia in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 refers to the rapture. I explained that they have to define a noun by its cognate verb meaning. In lexical semantics this is called the cognate fallacy. […]

(VIDEO) A Reply to L. A. Marzulli’s Pretrib ‘Little Green Men’ Interpretation of ἀποστασία in 2 Thessalonians 2:3

Marzulli (and Gary Stearman) is mistaken in the video above to think that apostasia can mean “physical departure.” It never does, which is why he never provides any evidence in the video and instead focuses on talking about “UFOs” and not Scripture. The term apostasia means a political or religious departure in Koine Greek, not […]

The Imminence Question – Ep. 83

http://traffic.libsyn.com/thebiblicalprophecyprogram/The_Imminence_Question_-_Ep._83.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedListen and find out what is “The Imminence Question.” Related to this I gave an outline of the most fundamental theological presupposition of pretribulationism which says that God does not work with Israel and the Church at the same time. Then I gave an outline of reasons […]

Shameful Pretrib Billy Crone Lies by Saying Prewrath Promotes Anti-Semitism

Billy Crone continues to misrepresent and lie about the prewrath position. He has been challenged to defend his views and statements publically in a debate, but refuses to do so. He knows he cannot do it. I explain below why pretribs are having these desperate and ungodly reactions to prewrath. Now Crone has taken his […]

My Cross-Examination Period with Thomas Ice in the Prewrath vs Pretrib Debate

Does Prewrath ‘Diminish’ Hope for Jesus’ Coming?

One of the stock objections to prewrath from pretribbers is that placing intervening events before the rapture “diminishes” eagerness and hope for Jesus’ return. This objection is easily refuted. I have responded to this objection in my book Antichrist Before the Day of the Lord: What Every Christian Needs to Know about the Return of […]

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 […]

A Reply to Pretrib Thomas Ross and His Faulty Understanding of the Aorist Greek Tense-Form in Revelation 6:17

Thomas Ross of Mukwonago Baptist Church in Mukwonago, Wisconsin has written a “critique” of the prewrath position. There are scores of these types of “prewrath critiques” that float around the internet. They basically repeat the same hackneyed stock objections. Nothing new. They are typically full of faulty presuppositions and skewed argumentation. Nevertheless, I like to respond to […]
