Does Jewish Wedding Imagery Support Pretribulationism? – Ep. 79

Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadChris White interviewed me a few years ago on his program to respond to pretrib teacher Jimmy DeYoung on certain pretrib objections to prewrath. I played a brief clip from this interview covering the common pretrib claim that the traditional Jewish Wedding imagery supports a pretribulational rapture. Listen and […]

Expectation of Jesus’ Coming and the Canon

One point I would add to the following helpful article is that believing Jesus will come during one’s lifetime is not the same thing as saying his return is “imminent.” I believe the Bible teaches that every generation should expect Jesus in their lifetime. But it does not teach that there are no prophesied events […]

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 […]

UPDATE: Pretrib Pastor Billy Crone of Get A Life Ministries Declines to Defend His Pretribulationism in a Public Moderated Debate

Just a quick update for those who were asking about a possible debate with Billy Crone. He has declined my debate invitation. That is too bad, but I am not surprised. Many pretrib teachers are confident in their bluster about how “biblical” their pretrib view is within the confines of their safe spaces on pretrib […]

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 […]

A Reply to Calvary Pastor Dave Love’s Flawed Pretrib Theology – Ep. 72

Play

Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadToday I replied to Calvary Chapel’s Pastor Dave Love’s so-called critique of the prewrath position, particularly on the seals. I critiqued his misunderstanding of the imagery of the seven seals that he thinks is staggered inside the scroll, rather than all on the outside of it. For some reason […]
