Pretrib vs. Prewrath eschatology can be viewed from the perspective of Spectator vs. Participator eschatology.
Pretrib eschatology represents adherents that possess a spectator posture. Pretrib books, films, and conferences tantalize their audiences with Bible prophecy from their safe spaces. They are convinced that they will never have to participate in the martyrdom of the Antichrist. For spectators, it is exhilarating and thrilling to attend pretrib conferences as the speakers go on and on and on about this or that sign happening. They talk about every possible facet about the Antichrist—only to conclude their keynotes with the obligatory qualification . . . “but don’t worry, you will be raptured out of here before all this bad stuff happens.”
Prewrath eschatology, on the other hand, represents participator eschatology. Prewrath conferences are sober, biblical-focused, and are attended by small numbers because of its difficult teaching of suffering. Participator eschatology takes seriously the overcoming-warnings in the book of Revelation by not viewing them aloof. Participators know that they could very well be that generation to face the Antichrist.
Jesus promises those who participate in being an overcomer will participate with him in the next life.
