  1. Is The Pretribulation Rapture Biblical   Open in New Window
    Although the Pretribulation Rapture doctrine is very popular and is even considered so crucial to Christianity that it is made a test of a person’s orthodoxy in some denominations, Bible colleges and seminaries, the exegetical and theological arguments used by its advocates are all classic cases of forcing one’s theological presuppositions onto particular texts (eisegesis). The purpose of this brief study is to show that the pretribulation rapture theory is not plainly taught or directly stated in any place in Scripture, cannot be deduced from biblical teaching, contradicts the general teaching of the Bible regarding Christ’s second coming and was never taught in any branch of the church prior to 1830. -by Brian M. Schwertley

  2. What Does the Bible Say About Pretribulation Rapture   Open in New Window
    The question of Pretribulation Rapture also assumes a specific, future period of exceptional tribulation. The scriptures, in speaking of the oppression or tribulation, generally say that the church will be, or has been, brought through the tribulation rather than taken out of it. In fact, many say the church will undergo tribulation.

  3. Is the PreTribulation Rapture Doctrine True   Open in New Window
    In the parable of the tares (weeds), Jesus said, "Let both grow together until the harvest ... gather ye first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them ..." (Matt 13:30) Notice two conclusive facts. First, after Jesus returns, there is no more room for repentance, and no seven-year tribulation. Secondly, the Christian and non-Christian alike are together until the final Second Coming of Jesus, and there is no 'pre-trib rapture' separating the two categories of people. -by Apostle Rodman

  4. The Timing of the Rapture   Open in New Window
    A Biblical examination of the Premillennial Pretribulation Rapture theory, which teaches that the Church must be taken out of the world before the Great Tribulation Period. Can this view be validated from the scripture alone, or is it based solely upon reading things 'into' scripture? -by Tony Warren

  5. The Not So Secret Rapture   Open in New Window
    Evangelical book catalogs promote books such as Planet Earth: The Final Chapter, The Great Escape, and the Left Behind series. Bumper stickers warn us that the vehicle's occupants may disappear at any moment. Bumper stickers warn us that the vehicle’s occupants may disappear at any moment. It is clear that there is a preoccupation with the idea of a secret Pretribulation Rapture. Perhaps psychologically people are especially receptive to the idea of an imminent, secret Rapture at the present time. -by W. Fred Rice

  6. The Rapture   Open in New Window
    There is perhaps no subject today that has aroused more curiosity than that of the Rapture. What is it? When will it take place? What is God's purpose for it? Is it a Pretribulation Rapture or after? In this article we will seek to answer these questions. But be ready, for what the Bible says on this subject may be quite different from what you have been taught. -by James M. Frye

  7. The Rapture of the Church   Open in New Window
    Some Christians believe that 1st Thessalonians chapter 4 teaches that the Church of Christ will not go through the final outburst of evil, led by the Antichrist, that is to happen just before the coming of the Lord in judgement (2 Thess 2:1-12). They believe in the Pretribulation Rapture theory. -by Fernando D. Saraví, Dipl Th, MD, PhD

  8. When Will Christ Return   Open in New Window
    A defense of Reformed Amillennialism - Premillennialists believe the 1000 years of Rev. 20 follows the return of Christ ( Pretribulation Rapture theory, or before the millennium) while Amillennialists believe that the millennium is symbolic of the whole New Testament era and Christ will return after. That is, there will be no "future" millennium era. -by Dan Harris

  9. Pretrib Rapture Diehards!   Open in New Window
    Since the 1970's stunning new data has been surfacing about the Pretribulation Rapture's long-covered-up beginnings in the 1800's. In 1993 Chuck Swindoll, who became DTS president after John Walvoord, stated: "I'm not sure we're going to make dispensationalism [the chief attraction of which is a pretrib Rapture] a part of our marquee as we talk about our school." When asked if the word "dispensationalism" would disappear, he answered: "It may and perhaps it should" ("Christianity Today," Oct. 25, 1993). -by Dave MacPherson

  10. Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty   Open in New Window
    When I began my research in 1970 into the exact beginnings of the Pretribulation Rapture belief still held by many evangelicals, I assumed that the Rapture debate involved only 'godly scholars with honest differences.' This paper you are now reading reveals why I gave up that assumption many years ago. Information on the long-hidden but now-revealed history of the dishonest, 179-year-old, fringe-British-invented, American-merchandised Pretribulation Rapture fad. -by Dave MacPherson

  11. 2 Thessalonians 1 Supports Amillennialism   Open in New Window
    2 Thessalonians 1 supports amillennialism because it is in tension with all the other major millennial views. First, 2 Thessalonians 1 is in tension with pretribulational and midtribulational premillennialism. It supports the idea that the Second Coming of Christ is a unified event rather than two chronologically distinct events. That is, the Rapture of the saints and the open appearing of Christ take place together. -by Vern S. Poythress

  12. When is the Rapture   Open in New Window
    A Study of Seven Scriptural Paths Focusing on the timing of the Rapture. A event that gives great comfort to the child of God is the Rapture of the believers. By the word " Rapture" we have in mind that moment in history when the believers in Christ who have not experienced physical death will be changed into their glorified bodies. At that time they will be caught up in the air to be with Christ (I Thessalonians 4:17). -by Harold Camping

    Frequently asked question about the doctrine which purports a difference between what is called the Bema Seat judgement for Christians, and the great white throne judgement of the unbeliever. Are these different judgements, and is there really a Biblical basis for this belief? -by Tony Warren

  15. Christ, Our Complete Assurance in Tribulation   Open in New Window
    Is the theoryu of a Pretribulation Rature correct? John 5:28-29 and Daniel 12:2 say that both good and evil will be raised in one resurrection event. Five times, John says that believers will be raised on the "last day" (John 6:39, 40, 44, 54; 11:24). The wicked will also be judged on the "last day" (John 12:48). The "sheep" and the "goats" will be judged on the same day when Christ comes again (Matt. 25:31-46). -by Nollie Malabuyo
