In this article, I will focus on the major pretrib misunderstanding that disconnects the rapture from the second coming (parousia). This understanding is fundamental in their interpretive framework, operating on practically every end-time passage concerned with the rapture and the second coming. I call this the pretribulation parousia presupposition. I will illustrate the skewed reasoning […]
The battle of Armageddon is not the event that begins the second coming (the parousia). It is a deep-seated assumption among many pretrib and posttrib interpreters that Matt 24:30–31 is a parallel passage to Rev 19:11–21. These interpreters cite Rev 19:11 as evidence that the battle of Armageddon begins the second coming: Then I saw […]
*I forgot my wind filter for my mic, so there are a few points when it is windy, but they are temporary. I explained that the tumult happening right now in society is a type of what will happen during the seventieth week of Daniel, in particular during the beginning of birth pangs and the […]

“But after three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and tremendous fear seized those who were watching them. Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them: “Come up here!” So the two prophets went up to heaven in a cloud […]
Today, I was interviewed on Dr. Douglas Hamp’s The Awakening Report. It was a substantive rapid program!
An oldie but goodie In this episode, Joel Richardson interviews Dr. Alan Kurschner to discuss Revelation 19 and the return of Jesus. Does Revelation 19 really describe the beginning of the return of Jesus? Or does it describe events that occur sometime after his return?
J. Webb Mealy states, “The first four seals (Rev. 6:1–8), for example, far from revealing divine chastisements, reveal the catalysts through which sinful and murderous humanity is brought to witness against itself. The four horsemen thus represent demonic agencies whose release into the arena of nations and societies tempts them to express their true nature.” […]
How many times have you been told that the abomination of desolation, as well as the great tribulation, in Matthew 24:15–21 is not an event that will be fulfilled in the future? Many times. Most amillennialists and historical premillennialists think that the abomination of desolation in Matt 24:15 was caused by Titus in AD 70. […]
This is good ol’ fashion comparing Scripture with Scripture. Notice all five passages link between (1) Christ appearing in the sky and (2) the gathering of God’s people. 1 Thessalonians 4:15–17 “For we tell you this by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming [parousia] of […]
To follow up on my previous blog post, I have another question for pretribbers that I would like the answer to. Since you (pretribbers) claim that believers would lose their blessed hope if they were persecuted by the Antichrist, then by that reasoning you must believe that so-called “tribulation saints” will lose their blessed hope […]
