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, […]

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. It means a religious or political […]
Sunday afternoon, my son and I cut down a Balsam Fir in the northwoods of Wisconsin. We are hoping for a White Christmas! The next day we decorated the tree and I set out a few Christmas gifts for him under the tree. Now what happened next was my 4 year old son refuted the […]
Robert L Thomas’s two volume commentary on the book of Revelation has been the standard pretribulation commentary on Revelation for three decades. On page 472 of his first volume, he makes an admission: Apparent weaknesses in [my own understanding] of the seal include its inability to explain why the sealing did not come before the […]

I have heard this story many times in the last 20+ years, especially from Calvary Chapel goers (I say “goers” because for some reason CC does not believe in local church membership). Here it goes. Calvary Chapel, indeed, should be applauded for encouraging their people to study their Bible closely, verse-by-verse. But what happens so […]
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).
It has been three months since the highly effective prewrath documentary Seven Pretrib Problems and the Prewrath Rapture has been released. I was hopeful that there would be some meaningful interaction with it from pretribbers. But regrettably there has been only crickets. Recently, I learned that pretribulationist Michael Nissim was going to do a review […]
