There are several prophecy interpreters who are appropriating the term “prewrath,” because it is becoming a popular position, and well, they want to get their particular interpretation heard. However, it is misleading and dishonest. For example, there are some “prewrath” interpretations I have read which are clearly posttribulational, not prewrath. They should use the term posttribulational for their position because that term describes…well, postribulationalism. Labels have meaning and they function as a shorthand way of denoting a theological interpretation. Incidentally, the label “prewrath-postrib” is contradictory and promotes confusion. It should be discarded. Indeed, prewrath and postrib have some things in common, but they are two distinct viewpoints. I have even heard someone say he is “pretrib-prewrath”!
The prewrath position possesses meaningful tenets that necessarily describe prewrath. If someone denies just one of the following in the list they should not be considered prewrath.
