In today’s program, I explained why pretribulation teachers are not obeying Jesus’ Great Commission: “teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matt 28:20). I continued to work through Jim McClarty’s article critiquing prewrath, responding to his arguments point by point.
I exposed a deep flaw in McClarty’s method of biblical interpretation where he disconnects the teaching of Jesus from the remaining part of the New Testament, exposing a multitude of inconsistencies and contradictions in his pretrib/classical dispensational system.
He makes the outlandish statement that Jesus cannot give “church teaching” unless the church exists at the time of Jesus’ teaching. In other words, Jesus cannot prophesy about the church during Jesus’ earthly ministry! This results in the flawed conclusion that Jesus cannot prepare his disciples to be the founding members of the church. I demonstrated the absurdity and errors in his interpretation by explaining the context of the Olivet Discourse and citing Old Testament teaching and Jesus’ teaching that McClarty would acknowledge is in fact church teaching—hence, illustrating his inconsistent pretrib theological system. The Olivet Discourse is a teaching for the church, and the church better wake up to that fact—soon.
