I am encouraged to learn that Joseph Farah recently announced that he is moving away from his pretrib view to evidently a prewrath view:
As a new believer nearly 40 years ago, I accepted the idea that born-again Christians would be raptured out of this world long before the world got Revelation-style ugly. I defended against attacks that the pre-tribulation rapture eschatological view would leave Christians tolerant of the growing apostasy in their midst. Now, I’m not so sure. Maybe it’s because I am repulsed at the way the pre-trib rapture doctrine is preached with such self-assurance, certainty, fervor. I have come to believe it is leaving far too many believers unprepared for what is happening right now as other Christians are already being slaughtered around the world….Here Paul talks about the coming of the Lord, just as he did in 1 Thessalonians, but says it will not come until the Antichrist is revealed. Yet, I hear pre-tribulation rapture teachers confidently say they will never live to see the “son of perdition” come to power and never live to see him sitting in the Temple of God. So where is the unequivocal scriptural promise that believers will escape the tribulation?
Immediately after his welcomed bombshell, pretrib-denying statement, he cites and links my book Antichrist Before the Day of the Lord: What Every Christian Needs to Know about the Return of Christ. He then gives some scriptural statements that convey that the church will face Antichrist and suffer persecution before the day of the Lord’s wrath.
Let’s continue to pray that more high-profile individuals (including pastors) will challenge their pretrib tradition, as well.
Time is short to get this message out.
