(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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
