G. Zunckel:

Dear Joel, A really huge thank you for your book! I have read through it – its real and gripping!! I have found myself re-reading chapter after chapter. I follow your belief and Holy Spirit inspired words. Wow what a wake-up call to the world and the church in general.

B. Currie:

Shalom Joel. Your book blew me away.   I loved the way you dovetailed everything. There is no reason for anyone to be offended by the book because it’s straight truth. As you kept on saying the Jews did nothing to deserve this favour of God and yet people despise them even though it’s not their choice. I am saying that they are God's people and we had better love them! I enjoyed the history and the meaning of words. Highly recommended was the way you supported your statements with Scripture.   A sterling work!

J. Pasma:

I have read your book and have learned a few things that I did not know before. This book should be read by every truly born-again saint of God, if for no other reason than to strengthen belief in Israel's right to their God-given land and God-given promises. Please keep on writing the Prophetic Scroll. After I read the "the interviews” section, I was shocked by comments from people who claimed to be believers, even more so by those who said they were pastors.

 

Joanne Smith (Ringwood, NJ, USA)   9/11/12

The Coming Holocaust is much like reading the book of Isaiah; it is a mind-boggling compilation of every book of the Bible purposefully pointing toward the Messianic age. That said, you can read this book and read your newspaper headlines almost side by side with the incomparable benefits of Mr. Joseph’s scholarly expository skill and his exhaustive investigation of the historical roots of just about any major player on the world stage.

Ever mindful of the title of this book, Mr. Joseph zooms in and out of the patterns and parallels throughout history that foreshadow the final battle for human souls that will result in a holocaust of unprecedented proportion and climax in a real-time Valley of Decision. He emphasizes that every single person alive is brought to reveal his/her decision if by nothing more than one’s opinion. As he explains,

“In this day, you must know and understand these things, otherwise you’re

in infinitely more danger than you can imagine. If you don’t understand what

is about to unfold, you’re in danger of being swept away in a tidal wave of

Satanic influence, opinion and intent. These very issues will lead a great

many people into hell.”

The most important changes I made after reading The Coming Holocaust are two unwavering decisions which I now can explain clearly. My first is to recognize that God’s roadmap to peace is not up to man nor can it be. It has always been up to God. It is the cross of Christ. And it is none other than this same Yeshua who will fully answer the cries of His Jewish people and similarly enable their recognition of Him. The true Messiah says “My peace I give to you; not as the world gives”. My other decision honors the eternal covenant with Israel as divine and not open to human revision. Again, here is the clearest explanation ever given to me:

“The very essence of all sin, is the doubting or denial of God’s word,

will and ways. God has made an eternal covenant with Israel. So what

does the modern world do? It says, ‘Has God said?’

This will be the very issue of separation and division between the

eternal purposes of the living God and the short-term doomed purposes of

Satan himself. You will go with one or the other, believe it or like it or not!”

(Joel Joseph, p5)

The best description I can give this body of work is that of a compass needle that will reliably point true North no matter who you are, where you stand, what clouds your visibility and above all how lost you‘ve become.

Nature Environment Wilderness and animals in prophecy

It covers much that is truly wonderful, some material that is frightening and much that is little or completely unknown in modern times.

This book will inform you, amaze you, shock you and give you great comfort.

In this book I’ve covered many exciting issues from stewardship of nature, to environment and health, to terrible man-made tragedies.

I’ve covered the interesting subject: “Do pets go to heaven?” and some indictments on hunters and Christian hunters in particular

I’ve covered the full circle of the perfect pre-Adamic creation, through the fall of man and curse on nature, to the liberation of nature and its complete return to perfection.

I’ve looked into “Glimpses of the future” and the terrible regret of the unsaved.

The book ends off with a collection of my own photographs and art works.

Be very sure of one thing; this book will move you!

This website is distinctly Messianic, comprising the Abrahamic expression of faith, which is to the Jew and the Gentile with a Hebraic character. We affirm the fullness of absolute truth contained in the Bible, embracing the cross and identifying with the convocations of the Lord as seen in the Feasts, the Sabbath and Passover. We reject the legalism of many in the Messianic movement. We reject the Babylonian Pagan traditions of the church. We consider all people Jews and Gentiles and those in all churches who are truly born of the Spirit of the living God to be one family. We reject institutional organised denominationalism (division). We foresee a great falling away of much of the church in these days, while at the same time a great restoration of part of the church. We affirm and identify with God's plan and call to the Jewish people in these days and will support and stand with them as future brothers and sisters. We stand happily with pre / mid/ and post tribbers. Our slant is cautiously pre-trib, but hey, post tribber...you're still family! Today much error has been added to Christendom and much truth has been removed. The Prophetic Scroll's aim is to deal with these issues and assist you on your road to glory.

I was saved in 1976 and became extremely interested in Bible prophecy, being an ex war-correspondent and photographer. My calling and aim is to share the dramatic and all-important issues of prophecy relating to our day. This is a calling to unfold and share the wisdom of God as contained in His word. There is also much teaching in these pages for your heart. It’s not all prophecy! Please study these things further yourself and understand that the format is non-exhaustive. Please search the scriptures to “see if these be true.” This is a "watchman" and Bible prophecy teaching website.

The US sends “warning” messages to Syria by way of missiles and to Afghanistan and ISIS by way of the MOAB bomb and to North Korea and Russia by way of words of warning. One wonders what is next! Could it be Iran? It’s all warming up!


a Sabbath Report2Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed. 

21st April 2017

Shabbat Shalom to all:

War, stress and peace:

We are in such a volatile world situation. All it will take is for one madman with itchy fingers to hit the big red mushroom button and boom – we have a mushroom cloud. Then the response will come and we will have a big war. It’s not unrealistic or far off!

This will be a big war, but will only be a precursor to world war like never seen before, in the soon-coming tribulation period.

There most certainly is a foreboding, ominous wind blowing!

We have a few “madman” candidates in North Korea, Syria, Iran and Russia, with China in the same boat although trying to be a friend of the West right now. It won’t last. All are on the stage.

Europe is a simmering time-bomb with its Muslim migrants waiting for the “jihad” button to be pressed! Smaller incidents like the Paris police shooting remind us of the heart of terror.

The US is in a similar boat with their migrants, but they seem to be realising, and rightly so, that Trump is no Obama and they will get nailed quickly if they even think of jihad in America.

The eurozone is a giant failure and some members want out, Spain is the latest. This all means that the fragile bonds holding it together may break at any moment, throwing Europe, and the euro into a catastrophe. Only a big reform will be the option. Prophecy awaits this fulfilment!

Have you noticed that with all these world tensions on the go now, Israel is more or less out of the picture? At this time, the Second Exodus is gaining momentum in a big way. It’s good that Israel remains off the main stage now, but we all know she will be dragged onto centre-stage soon.

It is news events like these mentioned that increase the stress levels of many people, even if they are far removed from the actual hot spots. The point is that in many cases, it’s the news itself that is the cause of the stress and not so much the events.

What a wonderful privilege we have as believers in our Lord to be able to live free from stress, at least with much less of it than those with no hope in this world or the world to come!

The biggest stress-killer is the rapture.

We must understand that the rapture of the church is not an isolated event. It is a dispensation change. It ends the church age and starts the next, which is the seven-year tribulation period, which itself is the close of the Old Covenant.

The rapture is directly linked to the start of the tribulation. There is no gap between the end of one dispensation and the start of the next. There is no scripture supporting it, only some stretched interpretation to make way for the largely erroneous “imminence” doctrine.

There has been an age old argument and discussion on the possibility of knowing when the rapture is to happen. There’s nothing wrong with that desire. Everyone wants to know.

But there are no independent signs of when it is going to happen. But what about the tribulation period, are there signs we can look for?

As I have said many times recently, there will be signs of the coming tribulation. If so, obviously the timing of a pre-tribulation rapture is knowable!

Yes, yes, I know all about the Revelation 12 sign. I haven’t rejected it completely nor accepted it. I have it on the shelf. It would really be cool if everyone was wrong and we went in the rapture well before the sign!

Okay, so what are those signs of the coming tribulation?

2 Thessalonians 2:3 “Don’t be deceived, for this day (the whole tribulation) will not come, unless the falling away (departure or rapture of the church) happens and the man of sin is revealed.” (I’ve applied the correct translation of the words in this verse. If you’re not familiar with them – look them up.)

Here we see the greatest sign of the coming tribulation and preceding rapture of the church. It is the arrival, releasing and identifying of the antichrist by the signing of a peace covenant.

As said many times, this will not suddenly happen overnight! Plans are made ahead of time for these things. They will be announced in the press, well beforehand.

May 3rd sees a meeting between Palestinian leader Abbas and President Trump in the White House, to discuss a new peace initiative between them and Israel. Will this be the final deal? No it won’t, but my point is that we see the meeting coming now.

We will see huge prophesied wars taking place before the tribulation begins. These could be part of the motivation for the Daniel 9:27 peace treaty. These wars will be the pre-cursor to a much bigger world war and conflict in the tribulation.

So, will we see the tribulation coming? The answer is yes. So, will we know when the rapture is coming? Again the answer is yes.

I’ve gone a rather long route to get to the point of this report:

Stress is all around us, and it’s going to increase exponentially. But so is beautiful, glorious peace, in these days of turmoil.

Has the world and the fear of coming troubles clouded your vision and taken away your joy?

Psalm 51:12 “Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and uphold me with Your generous Spirit.”

Peace will flow like refreshing waters for those who fear and know their God.

Psalm 42:5-8 “Why are you cast down, O my soul? Why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God...O my God, my soul is cast down within me; therefore I will remember You...Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; all Your waves have gone over me. The Lord will command His loving-kindness in the daytime and in the night; His song shall be with me – a prayer to the God of my life.”

Proverbs 10:25 “When the whirlwind passes by, the wicked is no more, but the righteous has an everlasting foundation.”

Proverbs 15:24 “The way of life winds upward↑↑↑ for the wise that he may turn away from hell below.”

Finally, concerning the seeking Jews in these dangerous days:

Romans 11:28 “Concerning the gospel they (Jews) are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election, they are beloved for the sake of the fathers.”

My Jewish friends, all these dramatic events before us will involve you. You can choose to seek and find your Jewish Messiah right now and escape the tribulation, or you can choose to find your Messiah in the tribulation period. The former is far better than the latter!

Shalom Joel.

 Edition 236. December 3rd  2014

The rapture nears!

rapture sky earth

The rapture nears!

Introduction:

Do you think you will go in the rapture? A huge number of people who think they will - won’t! The reason I wrote the previous edition, “What is a Christian” was for this purpose!

Many ministers of the gospel who reject and downplay eschatology, (the study of end-times) mock, scorn and ridicule those of us who love eschatology. For some reason they particularly like scoffing at the rapture.

In spite of these irritants, the subject of the rapture and where it occurs in relation to the tribulation, has the most intense interest of all subjects among true believers. The enemies of eschatology just can’t make it go away!

Listen, Mr. Post-tribber, this entire issue is very important – but it is not a salvation issue. It is not an issue for division – you guys need to remember that and calm down with your insults!

I would like to share some amazing truths with you on the rapture of the church, most of which I haven’t shared before. We are getting a lot closer my friends!

These truths are irrefutable. I encourage you to take this very seriously and adjust your lives in line with biblical holiness.

This is an unashamedly pre-tribulation rapture position!

Interpretation and logic:

Bible prophecy requires a fair amount of study. We need to get into original words used where necessary. The Bible itself says in a number of places, that “calculations” are needed. Most times Bible prophecy is logical and clearly apparent. But there are a few times when God throws in something really confusing, I think just to humble us!

It is most important to understand that the Holy Spirit is the prime interpreter. You say “well that’s obvious”! Not so fast there.

If you study the history of interpretation of prophecy you will be shocked at the huge mess created by the unholy spirit working in so-called men of God. Much of this mess still prevails in the church today.

For those interested, the monumental 700-page book by Dwight Pentecost, “Things to Come”, is about the best you can get. (Published by Zondervan.)

The so-called church fathers in the pre-Catholic era and into the early Catholic era made an absolute mess of interpretation of prophecy. All of them without exception were anti-Semites and saw prophecy through those eyes. They were NOT of the Spirit of God.

You may be surprised to know that the reformers – all of them - were no different. They were all anti-Semites apart from the Wesley brothers, although the church they formed is an eschatological abortion today.

None of the reformers taught truth relating to eschatology. Is it any wonder that the offshoots of the reformers – the denominational churches - are not only silent on eschatology; they are blind, deceived and the enemy of God in this regard, especially relating to Israel.

Of course I believe that God did use the reformers in some instances, but not in anything to do with eschatology. These reformers created what has become 33,000 ‘Christian’ denominations. God desires unity. They have created division.

As we study the Bible we must be at peace with its author in our hearts. It is the Spirit that speaks and leads and guides. (John 16:13.)

Irrefutable pre-tribulation rapture revelations:

angels-people3

Many of the post-tribulation rapture position claim that the book of Revelation is not in chronological order. It most certainly is. If you read it you will see it! If you count the number of “thens” in the Revelation, logic dictates that it is in chronological order.

Revelation 5:9-11 “They sang a new song saying: You are worthy to take the scroll. And to open its seals; for you were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and have made us kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign on the earth. Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand and thousands of thousands.”

If you didn’t read those verses above please do so. Now we are going to see something astounding as we apply basic logic to the verses.

Here we have a company of masses of people “redeemed out of every tribe, tongue and nation”. These are not angels as some critics maintain. Angels are not redeemed out of all the nations! Yes there is an angelic company here also, and there is a company of “heavenly creatures.” We also have the 24 elders here in this company as well.

By the way, its only human beings that are “redeemed by the blood of the Lamb”. Heavenly creatures and angels are not. So, this proves conclusively that these are human believers. The elders are always identified with the Church.

So, this massive congregation in heaven includes living creatures, angels, elders and redeemed believers. Here is the crunch:

This takes place before the opening of the seals and immediately after the messages to the seven churches.  These redeemed in heaven are singing to the Lamb and saying that He is worthy to open the seals. The opening of the seals starts the tribulation!

Do you see that?

At this point in time the tribulation period is just about to start on the earth.

So what are these elders and multitudes of people doing in heaven just as the tribulation starts on earth?

The only way they could be there is by rapture! This is so clear, yet many can’t see it!

Here’s another incredible proof of a pre-tribulation rapture: Let’s presume a post-tribulation rapture for a minute. Let’s also presume that the book of Revelation is not in chronological order. How on earth do you make those verses fit? They don’t fit a post-trib rapture at all. The seals which begin the tribulation are not opened at the end of the tribulation!

By the way, this also refutes a mid-tribulation rapture.

Sorry, post-tribber – there is no way around this. There is no other explanation other than a pre-tribulation rapture.

More pure logic:

Revelation chapters 1-3 contain 16 references to the church. All of these are in association with the seven messages to the churches. Then suddenly in Revelation 4:1 John hears a voice like a trumpet rapturing him into heaven where he receives the Revelation.

 The rest of the book does not contain one reference to the Church, except for some views of the Church in heaven, at the marriage feast and others events in heaven. The only believers seen on earth during the seven years are people that have become known as tribulation saints or those who are saved during this time. Jews are seen fulfilling the work of evangelism on earth. There is no Church on earth during this time. This is such clear proof of a pre-tribulation rapture.

trumpet shofar sword

More logic:

The verse below speaks of “escaping all these things.” What things are these? Our Lord has just finished describing many of the events of the tribulation period.

Luke 21:36 “Watch and pray that you may escape all these things...”

Escaping these things is not being protected through them, besides, tribulation saints (those saved in the tribulation) will not be protected at all. They will be martyred en mass.

Okay, now let’s extrapolate the verse into a post-tribulation rapture position. What do you have to “watch and pray” to escape at the end of the tribulation? Why would you want to escape the Millennium?

More logic:

Two very significant statements in the Revelation are worth taking note of. In Revelation 2:22 the Church of Thyatira is promised by God that it will be cast into the great tribulation. The description of this church makes it pretty clear that it is referring to the orthodox churches like the Catholics. But the language implies that if these go into the tribulation others won’t.

In Revelation 3:10 the Church of Philadelphia is promised by God that it will be kept from the tribulation. Again the language implies that if these don’t go into the tribulation, others do. Many believers will not go through the tribulation. Many professing Christians will go into the tribulation!

A problem verse, or is it?

2 Thessalonians 2:3-7 “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition...and now you know what is restraining, that he might be revealed in his own time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.”

People often get the above verses wrong. They say, “You see, the rapture can’t happen until the falling away occurs, and the antichrist is revealed.” What this verse actually says is that the Day of the Lord, which a term for the whole tribulation period, can’t begin until falling away occurs, the antichrist is revealed and the restrainer of evil is removed.

The original words used for “the falling away” could also be translated, “the departure” which refers to the rapture and not the apostasy of the church, although both will occur.

Now, let’s extrapolate the verses into a post-tribulation rapture position.

That would mean that the rapture, the revealing of the antichrist and the restrainer being removed all have to happen at the end of the tribulation. Why would the antichrist be revealed at the end of the tribulation? Why would the true Church indwelt by the Holy Spirit (the restrainer) be removed as we go into the Millennium?

Do you see that it just doesn’t fit!

The Lot example:

We know the story of Lot and his wife being removed from the evil city, Sodom, before the judgement of fire fell upon it. This is a type of a pre-tribulation rapture. Lot was not protected through the fiery judgement but removed completely to another town called Zoar.

Now look at these two astounding verses below. Note that God says He can’t even begin the judgement while Lot is still there in Sodom.

Genesis 19:22-23 “Hurry, escape there (from Sodom). For I can’t do anything until you arrive there. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar. The sun had risen when Lot entered Zoar.”

Genesis 18:25 “Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be as the wicked; far be it from You! Shall not the judge of all the earth do right?”

Do you see the powerful typology here?

The Jericho type:

Many use this story to prove a post-tribulation rapture. But if we look a little deeper into what actually happened there is no argument.

In Joshua 2 we see the story of the Gentile, Rahab, hiding two Israeli spies from the Jericho’s Gentile army who wanted to kill them. She rescues them and is told by the two spies to put a scarlet thread in her window so the invading Israeli army would spare her and her family from destruction when Jericho falls and is consumed by the fire of judgement.

Joshua 6:4-5 “Seven priests shall bear seven trumpets of ram’s horns before the ark. On the seventh day you shall march around the city seven times and the priests shall blow the trumpets. Then it shall come to pass when they make a long blast on the ram’s horns, and when you hear the sound of the trumpets, that all the people shall shout with a great shout; then the wall of the city shall fall down flat. And the people shall go up every man straight before him.”

Rahab, is a type of the church. She and her family were removed from the city before it fell to the ground in judgment. Here it is:

Joshua 6:22-24 “But Joshua had said to the two men who had spied out the country, ‘Go into the harlot’s house, and from there bring out the woman and all that she has, as you swore to her.’ The young men who had been spies went in and brought out Rahab, her father, her mother, her brothers and all that she had. So they brought out all her relatives and left them outside the camp of Israel. Then they burned the city and all that was in it with fire...”

In verse 23 we see Rahab being brought out of Jericho and left outside the camp of Israel.  This was so that they could be purified.

By faith she was made clean and delivered from God’s wrath seven days before judgment. This is a powerful type of the pre-tribulation rapture of the church.

There is another very powerful example in this story that believers would do well to take heed of. Rahab was a Gentile who helped Israel fulfil her calling. She hid the spies in her home thereby facilitating the God-inspired journey of the Jews to the Promised Land. This simple act brought God’s favour to her and her family.

Today we are in a similar situation. Do you want God’s blessing or cursing on your life?

I’ve wandered around the ruins of Jericho, not far from the modern town. I had an eerie feeling alright!

The Enoch type:

Enoch is a type of the Church. He was a Gentile, being born before the official formation of the Jews. He was the seventh from Adam.

Enoch was born on the day of Pentecost. He was rapured alive on the day of Pentecost. Some believe that this means the Church will raptured on the day of Pentecost.

I believe that the typology refers to the entire church age or dispensation, encapsulated between two days of Pentecost. It is stretching things a bit saying that the rapture has to occur on Pentecost, although it is possible. Remember we are dealing with types and shadows here.

Enoch born and ratured on Pentecost associates him with the church which is associated strongly with Pentecost in many ways.

Enoch was taken by rapture before the flood of Noah. He was not protected through it, but raptured to heaven. His rapture is consistent with the other types I have referred to in this edition and numerous others that you’ll find in other editions.

If Enoch is a type of the rapture of the Church, isn’t this interesting: Jude 14 “Now Enoch the seventh from Adam prophesied about these men also saying, Behold the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints...” When does this occur? It is right at the end of the tribulation period – the Second Coming. And note who it is coming back with our Lord. It is a great company of “His saints.”

The Joseph type:

Genesis 41:45-57 reveals the story of Joseph and the seven years of plenty and the seven years of famine. Joseph, a type of our Lord, takes a Gentile bride before the seven years of famine. Israel and the whole world suffered the famine. The famine is a type of the tribulation.

Proof in Contraposition:

One of the great proofs of a pre-tribulation rapture lies with almost all denominational churches as well as the Catholics. Their ministers universally reject the baptism of the Spirit. They have created a world of division, while God’s Spirit leads into unity. They are almost universally great friends of the devil in a million areas. Many of their doctrines are of hosts of demons. They are almost universally anti-Semitic, pro-Palestinian, against God’s work in and with Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews.

They are universally of the post-tribulation rapture position. That means that the truth lies in the opposite view.

Another powerful proof of a pre-tribulation rapture lies amongst the Messianic Judaisers. This is a group within the Messianic movement, who insist on trying to bring people under the law. They reject dispensations, and the age of grace. They are universally post-tribulation rapture adherents.

The truth would be in the opposite view that they hold, which is the pre-trib rapture.

Understanding wrath:

God does not pour His wrath out on His own people.  The tribulation period includes the wrath of God.

Romans 1:18 “The wrath of God is revealed against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth.”

Colossians 3:6 “Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience.”

Proverbs 11:23 “The expectation of the wicked is wrath.”

Isaiah 13:9 “Behold the day of the Lord comes, cruel, with both wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate; and He will destroy its sinners from it.”

Ephesians 5:6 “Let no one deceive you with empty words, because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.”

Romans 5:9 “Having being justified by His blood we shall be saved from wrath through Him.”

1 Thessalonians 5:9 “For God did not appoint us to wrath...”

Revelation 6:15-17 “The kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall upon us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand.’”

Luke 21:36 “Watch and pray that you may escape all these things...”

rapture earthrise

The rapture in the Old Covenant:

Here are three verses from the Old Covenant that imply a pre-tribulation rapture:

Isaiah 26:20-21 “Come my people enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourself as it were, for a little moment, until the indignation is past, for behold the Lord comes out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; the earth will disclose her blood, and will no more cover her slain.”

Zephaniah 2:1-3 “Gather together O undesirable nation, before the decree is issued, before the day passes like chaff, before the Lord’s fierce anger comes upon you, before the day of the Lord’s anger comes upon you! Seek the Lord all the meek of the earth, which have upheld His justice, seek righteousness, seek humility, it may be that you will be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.”

Psalm 27:5 “For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.”

Final thoughts:

As said right up front, the post -trib / pre-trib debate is not an issue for division. But as you see there is strong powerful evidence for the pre-trib position. It is also a powerful tool of evangelism. The post-trib position is not.

If you look at the other rapture editions (grouped in the “Editions by subject” index) you will see that there is a lot more evidence. Putting it all together paints a compelling picture.
