5 Reasons Why Revelation 19 and Its Battle of Armageddon Does NOT Describe the BEGINNING of the Second Coming of Jesus

I was interviewed by Joel Richardson recently on his The Underground. We addressed the very deep-seated assumption that many hold where Revelation 19 and its depiction of Jesus on a horse in the sky at the battle of Armageddon describes the beginning of the second coming of Christ. Amillennialists, pretribulationists, posttribulationists, and other eschatological positions take this position. […]

(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 […]

Billy Crone Commits a Form of the Ancient Heresy of Dualism

Billy Crone in defending pretribulationism as you can see in the video below (starting at 10:10) argues fallaciously that since Jesus opens up the seals, therefore the seals must be God’s eschatological wrath. In other words, in his thinking Jesus cannot be sovereign and have good purposes in his divine decree for the persecution of […]

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. They recognize (as prewrath teaches) that Scripture clearly states that certain events must happen “before the day of the Lord.” There are in fact four such explicit statements in Scripture. These pretrib teachers […]
