Critique of the Pre-Wrath Rapture of the Church
« on: December 27, 2009, 11:57:17 AM »
There are eschatological errors in Marv Rosenthal's book, "The Pre-Wrath Rapture." The following is a cursory view of some, which follow:

The first one is the his placement of the beginning of the Day of the Lord at Rev.8 just before the beginning of the seven trumpet judgements. When the fact of the matter is, God begins His timetable to end this present age at the beginning of the 70th and final week in Dan.9:27, with the advent of the antichrist. Who He allows Satan to bring up out of the Abyss [Hell], in Rev.17:8, the man of lawlessness of 2 Thes.2:3-4 and 8 who is revealed after the Church is caught up/apostasia/discessio/depart to be with the Lord. Who then takes us to our Father in heaven, as He promined us in Jn.14:2-4 and 28! The one who confirms a covenant/agreement with many and is the trigger that starts the 70th and final week/seven year tribulation/the Day of the Lord, as Paul states in 2 Thes.2:2.

The fact that Rosenthal sets the beginning of the Day of the Lord at the beginning of the seven trumpet judgements, in Rev.8, ending with the second coming of Christ is the next error. The antichrist is seen in the very first of the seven seals, the first of the four horsemen, riding the white horse, in Rev.6:2, confirming the "he" in Dan.9:27 who confirms the covenant/agreement with many, triggering the 70th and final week/the seven year tribulation/the Day of the Lord. The Day of the Lord will never end after it begins with the pre-trib rapture of the Church, as pin pointed in 2 Thes.2:1-3, followed immediately with the antichrist being revealed who triggers the seven year tribulation, confirming Dan.9:27. As it also consists of the blessings of God for all His people during the Millennial kingdom of Christ here on the earth, according to Rev.20:4 and 6.

Another error is the fact that Rosenthal involves the Church in the tribulation, all the way through six of the seven seals, after the antichrist is revealed as the first of the four horsemen, in the first of the seven seals, which Paul clearly states will not be revealed until after the departure of the Church, in 2 Thes.2:3.

The next error is the fact that the Church has nothing whatever to do with the ministry of Jesus during His entire first advent, He made abundantly clear, was exclusively to the "lost sheep of Israel," in Mt.15:24 as well as in Mt.10:5-6. His Olivet Discourse in Mt.24:4-31 and counterparts of Mk.13 and Lk.21 do not address the Church in any way, because it did not exist before the arrival of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, ten days after Jesus ascended into heaven, in Acts 1:9 and 2:1-3.

The Church is caught up to be with the Lord in 1 Thes.4:13-18, from where He takes us to be with our Father in heaven, as He promised us in Jn.14:2-4 and 28, before the Day of the Lord/the 70th week of Daniel/the seven year tribulation begins, in 2 Thes.2:1-8.

Religious Lie: "God only paid for sins until the next time you sin."
Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
