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. […]

VIDEO: Discovery of an Ancient Seven-Sealed Scroll | Book of Revelation

I talked about a discovery of a seven-sealed (“bullae”) scroll in Israel at Wadi ed-Daliyeh that was still intact when it was found. I discussed the function of the scroll and its seals in the book of Revelation and what their relationship is with the trumpets and bowl judgments. You can see the images of […]

Seals, Trumpets, Bowls in the Book of Revelation: Concurrent-Recapitulation or Consecutive-Progressive? (Part 1 of 2) – Ep. 36

http://traffic.libsyn.com/thebiblicalprophecyprogram/036-Seals_Trumpets_Bowls.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedIn part 1 of 2 parts, I gave some context to one of the most common interpretations for the posttrib view, where the seals, trumpets, and bowls occur roughly at the same time. Indeed, many posttribs believe the corresponding elements are the same events; i.e. the seventh […]

Answering the Post-trib Interpretation of Revelation 16:15

There is a posttribber, Doug Swanson, on a prewrath facebook group that is claiming that Jesus returns between the sixth and seventh bowl because of the reference to Jesus coming as a thief. This is a naive reading not recognizing the parenthetical nature of the remark. “(Look! I will come like a thief! Blessed is […]

A Response to Post-tribulationism on the Chronology of the Seals, Trumpets, and Bowls

I have posted the following article in the past, but I hate for it to get buried in the archives since I consider it a very effective argument against viewing the seals, trumpets, and bowls as happening at the same time. I have received positive feedback on it, including some posttribs rethinking their view of […]

Seals, Trumpets, Bowls – At the Same Time or One After the Other? i.e. Concurrent-Recapitulation or Consecutive-Progressive?

I am writing a book responding to posttribulationism. It will be the first prewrath book that substantively engages the posttribulational view. Even though my book Antichrist Before the Day of the Lord responds to relevant points on posttribulationism, this forthcoming book will be completely devoted to the posttrib interpretation. My hope is that it will […]

Why the Bowls Do Not Happen Within the 42 Months, but Happen After the Completion of the Seven-Year Period During 30 Days

Darrin writes: On the bowls, my view is that they occur within the 42 months of the reign of the beast, see Revelation 13:5. The beast is only given 42 months [second-half]. The bowls depict the beast still having a throne, a kingdom, followers, the ability to wage war, etc. Therefore the bowls are within […]
