While pretribulationists are hard-pressed to show the church saints in heaven before the Antichrist’s great tribulation, posttribulationists, on the other hand, are hard-pressed to show the church saints on earth during the day of the Lord’s wrath.
I am glad to see Dr. James White investigating eschatology. While I think he is wrong on postmillennialism and preterism, at least, contrary to popular opinion, it is a step closer to prewrath premillennialism. However, Dr. White has always practiced—and something I greatly respect—engaging the best arguments on the other side. But here is where […]
QUESTION: Someone recently asked a good question: If we assume [the 144,000 are Jews], Rev. 7 says they are sealed because they will be on earth during God’s wrath. According to Rev. 7, this sealing will happen right about the same time the rapture happens (the “great multitude”). Now these are the questions: (1) Will […]
“Because you have kept my admonition to endure steadfastly, I will also keep you from the hour of testing that is about to come on the whole world to test those who live on the earth.” (Revelation 3:10) “hoti etērēsas ton logon tēs hypomonēs mou, kagō se tērēsō ek tēs hōras tou peirasmou tēs mellousēs […]

The first four seals prove the guilty for God’s wrath (Rev 6:1–8). The fifth seal promises God’s wrath (Rev 6:9–11). The sixth seal portends God’s wrath (Rev 6:12–17). The saints are protected from God’s wrath (Rev 7). The seventh seal pronounces God’s wrath (Rev 8–9; 15–16).

Nine Proofs” in Grace in Focus magazine. He summarizes pretribulational John Hart’s view that the pretribulation rapture begins at Matthew 24:36 and not before it. They are not truly “proofs” but more like assertions. The fatal flaw […]
