Where Is the Rapture in the Book of Revelation?

Prewrath makes a convincing argument that Rev 7:9–17 portrays the result of the raptured and resurrected people of God. There is, however, another passage in the Apocalypse that I believe pictures the rapture in action using harvest imagery: “Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud was one like a son of […]

What Does Prewrath Teach?

WHAT IS PREWATH? by ALAN KURSCHNER Many of us were told that the church will be “raptured out of here before the Antichrist’s arrival.” The Bible, however, teaches the church will first experience the Antichrist’s great tribulation. Then, at some unknown day and hour, Antichrist’s persecution will be cut short by the return of Christ […]

Is Jesus Currently on David’s Throne?

Michael J. Vlach writes: The purpose of this blog post is to examine Peter’s use of Psalm 132:11 in Acts 2:30 with a view toward grasping Peter’s understanding of the throne of David concept. Acts 2 describes the baptizing and filling ministry of the Holy Spirit after Jesus’ ascension. This is all related to Jesus, […]

(VIDEO) What You Need to Know about the New Jerusalem

Doug Hamp gives a lucid biblical theology of the New Jerusalem: its nature, history, purpose, size, shape, location, and its timing of when it descends to earth, before or after the millennium. (Incidentally, toward the end of the video he puts a plug in for his book against Calvinism, which I would not agree with, […]

Jan Markell, Eric Barger, and Billy Crone Play VICTIMS to Keep their Pretrib Rapture Adherents Corralled

Jan Markell and Eric Barger want you to feel sorry for them and thereby believe the pretrib view (she claims that we are “persecuting” her and that it is “not a stretch of that word”). That sums up their recent program in defensively responding to the prewrath position along with their guest pretribber Billy Crone. […]

5 Reasons Why Revelation 19 and Its Battle of Armageddon Does NOT Describe the BEGINNING of the Second Coming of Jesus

I was interviewed by Joel Richardson recently on his The Underground. We addressed the very deep-seated assumption that many hold where Revelation 19 and its depiction of Jesus on a horse in the sky at the battle of Armageddon describes the beginning of the second coming of Christ. Amillennialists, pretribulationists, posttribulationists, and other eschatological positions take this position. […]

Articles for Posttribulationism to Consider

Prewrath and posttribulationism share some affinities with each other. However, there are some important differences as well, differences that I think many posttribulationists have not considered. Hence, I am providing this list of articles containing issues for posttribulation rapturists to consider from a prewrath perspective.   Seals, Trumpets, Bowls – At the Same Time or […]

Is Every Promise Fulfilled in Christ? A Reply to Thomas Schreiner’s Supersessionism

[W]hat about the promise of land? This is a very controversial subject, but I would argue that the promise of land is fundamentally fulfilled, first, in the resurrection of Jesus himself. Every promise is fulfilled in Jesus; so the resurrection, the physical resurrection of Jesus, it’s the inauguration of that promise made, originally, to Adam […]

A Snippet from the Forthcoming Book Responding to Pretrib Imminence…

God has worked with Israel and the church at the same time in the past, he does in the present, and he will in the future.   In the Past God worked with Israel during the church age in AD 70. Before the death of Jesus during the Old Covenant dispensation, a prophecy given to […]

Brannon Howse Slanders a Godly Leader

I rarely post anything other than eschatologically related material at this website. But I need to make an exception to call out Brannon Howse on his ugly slander against James White, a leading Christian apologist on the front lines of proclaiming the gospel to Muslims. And that is not an overstatement, White travels the world […]

(VIDEO) Audience Member Stumps Thomas Ice with Question at a Debate | Midwest Prophecy Conference, Calvary Chapel, Lafayette, IN

There was a recent debate at the pretrib 2017 Midwest Prophecy Conference, Calvary Chapel, Lafayette, IN: “Is the return of the Lord imminent?” between Dr. David Lehman and Dr. Tommy Ice. Both debate participants are pretrib; the former, however, denies imminence and attempted to argue that you can deny imminence and affirm pretribulationism. This is […]
