This is a helpful discussion among three noted traditional dispensationalists about the history of dispensationalism. While it is not about pretribulationism per se, at 9:45, one of the participants claimed that Paul believed in an any moment rapture (i.e. imminence) when he included himself (“we”) in the rapture in 1 Thess 4:15–17. “For we tell […]
“After he had said this, while they were watching, he was lifted up and a cloud hid him from their sight. As they were still staring into the sky while he was going, suddenly two men in white clothing stood near them and said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand here looking up into […]
It is refreshing to listen to a pastor not afraid to preach the truth of prewrath—and engage other views substantively! You need to watch this. I am amazed at the amount of ground he covered in this sermon. 20200321 Message from BRAVE Church on Vimeo.
The Bible clearly teaches that when Jesus returns to pour out God’s eschatological wrath, the world will be caught off guard and oblivious of his sudden coming. For example, Jesus uses the Noahic illustration to teach that his return will be sudden upon the world: For just like the days of Noah were, so the […]
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.

Andy Gould has responded to a pretrib critique of prewrath on 2 Thessalonians 2 from Michael Nissim.
I had technical difficulties at the beginning, but fixed it at 6:38.
In this week’s episode of The Biblical Prophecy Program, I pointed out a contradiction in the posttribulation framework. Many posttribulationists view the catching up of the two witnesses to heaven as “representing” the rapture, and they identify the blowing of the seventh trumpet in the book of Revelation as Paul’s “last trump.” The salient problem, […]

Posttribulationists interpret the […]
I am amazed that many pretribulation teachers continue to white-knuckle believe that the Greek noun apostasia in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 refers to the rapture because they claim this Greek noun can mean “physical departure.” The problem is that the noun never means “physical departure” during the Koine Greek period.
