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 […]
In VCY America’s Prophecy Focus program, Pastor John Fallahee and Dr. Richard Schmidt grossly misrepresents the prewrath position claiming that the church will go through the trumpet judgments of God’s wrath. Prewrath teaches that the rapture occurs between the sixth and seventh seal. They are simply irresponsible with this blatant misrepresentation. Not surprisingly, they […]
This is a good question from the inbox: With regards to viewing the seals, trumpets and bowls as happening at the same time (concurrent-recapitulation) or as happening progressively (consecutive-progressive), there’s something I noticed that I haven’t seen you address so far (I might be wrong). Let’s compare the sixth seal with the sixth bowl: Revelation […]
Over the years, I have observed two abuses of the use (or lack thereof) of the term prewrath. The first abuse is using the term to describe your view but in reality it is not prewrath because it contradicts prewrath tenets. If you don’t hold to these accepted and standard basic views of prewrath, 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.
Posttribulationists believe we will be on earth protected during the bowl judgments. Prewrathers, on the other hand, believe that we will be raptured before the trumpet and bowl judgements begin and only afterwards descend in the New Jerusalem to earth for the millennium and beyond. One particular passage I want to highlight why we will […]

While the ungodly will suffer eternal fire in hell, they will also experience the fiery wrath of God in the […]
I had technical difficulties at the beginning, but fixed it at 6:38.
[Editor’s Note: This is a guest article by Caleb Hines] One of many things to appreciate about the prewrath position is that it explains the symbolism of the seven seals by viewing them as prerequisite events to the Day of the Lord. While the first six seals and subsequent interlude have garnered much attention among […]
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, […]
