Hence, I am providing this list of articles containing issues for posttribulation rapturists to consider from a prewrath perspective.   Seals, Trumpets, Bowls – At the Same Time or […]

A Quick Response to Pretrib Teacher and Pastor Geoffrey Kirkland

Geoffrey Kirkland makes the mistake of indicating that his pretribulationism is the only interpretation of futuristic premillennialism.

Reply to H. Wayne House on the Claim that APOSTASIA Can Mean ‘Spatial Departure’

In my public debate in the cross-examination period with Thomas Ice I honed in on the Greek noun apostastia in 2 Thessalonians 2:3.
