Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 4-13-22: They Don’t Understand

2 years ago

Having espoused the pre-Tribulation Rapture for a number of years, via numerous published articles, my books, video Prophecy Updates, and in person, I can tell you that this position is in a minority within the church and in Christian media circles. Based on the feedback I’ve gotten and what I’ve seen at large, there simply is little interest in the pre-Trib Rapture. It’s as though the proverbial wet blanket has been thrown over this concept and most people have been convinced it’s not viable. As a result, they dismiss it as escapism, or worse, as a Satanic delusion.

Those who don’t believe in this sound Biblical doctrine primarily fall into the mid- or post-Trib Rapture camp, or take the stand that there is no Rapture. Another group is that which spiritualizes much of the Bible and/or believes most or all of Bible prophecy has already been fulfilled – thus a coming Rapture, Tribulation, and even Millennial Reign of Christ is generally off the table with them.

I’m not sure it matters which cohort people fall into who disparage the pre-Tribulation Rapture, but the one thing that seems certain is that none of them truly appreciate how awful the 7-year Tribulation will be.
