Does Revelation 3:10 Support a Pretribulation Rapture? – Ep. 78

Play

Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadI intend to discuss Revelation 3:10 more in depth in a future episode, but in this brief episode I wanted to drive home a single point why this verse does not support pretribulationism and why it cannot be used as an objection against prewrath. Chris White interviewed me a […]

Jan Markell and Billy Crone Go Apoplectic Against Non-Pretrib Views

Just a quick note on this example of this inane interview that pop-pretribber Jan Markell had with Billy Crone. I don’t keep up with these programs or interviews myself. I receive emails everyday from people sending me links to these shows and cannot possibly respond to them. But I want to note this one. Why […]

BIAS ALERT: This person makes a GREAT point about The John Ankerberg Show | Prewrath Rapture

The John Ankerberg Show has been known for having different perspectives represented by different proponents on a topic. However, when it comes to one particular topic, the rapture, Ankerberg will only have pretrib guests on this show. Can anyone say…painfully biased? He does not have a prewrather, posttribber, or a preterist on his show. He […]

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 […]

Does the Parable of the Wheat and Tares Support Post-Tribulationism? – Ep. 74

Play

Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadToday’s episode I discussed whether the Parable of the Wheat and Tares (Weeds) supports a posttribulational rapture. There are at least three common questions that arise when people study the parable of the Wheat and the Weeds in Matthew 13. The first question is whether we are able to […]

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 […]

Metaphorical ‘Safe-Space’ for Those Who Deny Jesus’ Literal Return

There is a trend out there for certain “progressive” evangelicals who are triggered by literal interpretations of biblical prophecy. In knee-jerk fashion, they will read practically all prophetic portrayals of the future as “metaphor” or “symbolism.” Shouting “metaphor” in theology is like shouting “racism” in politics. It is intended to shut down discussion and not […]

Public Debate Challenge for BILLY CRONE to Defend His Pretribulational Imminent Rapture

Billy Crone is a pretrib teacher who dogmatically claims that the Bible teaches the imminent return of Jesus. I am putting out this public debate challenge to Mr. Crone asking him to defend his claims in a public moderated debate with myself. He can take the affirmative: The Bible teaches the imminent return of Jesus. […]

A Quick Reply to Pretribs Pastor Billy Crone and Derek Gilbert

Pretrib talk-show host Derek Gilbert had pretrib Pastor Billy Crone on his show to discuss his pretrib book, ironically titled The Rapture: Don’t Be Deceived. Crone’s book is same old, same old pretrib argumentation. One particular topic he brought up is his allegorical interpretation of the “Jewish Wedding.” And a few minutes later Gilbert and […]

The Earliest Christian Document Outside of the New Testament (the Didache) Explicitly Teaches that the Church Will Face the Antichrist – Ep. 70

Play

Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadWe discussed how the very Early Church affirmed Jesus’ teaching that the Church would face the persecution of the Antichrist before the return of Jesus and the resurrection. The earliest Church document outside of the New Testament—the Didache—establishes this point. The core teaching of prewrath goes back to apostolic […]
