What You Will Find
Easy to Understand Articles
I write so that people of all levels of Bible prophecy understanding can follow along and gain a greater understanding.
Independent, Critical Thinking
I'm not afraid to critique popular end time teachings. Just because an end time teaching is popular doesn’t mean it's biblical.
No Sensationalism or Hype
I don't set dates nor sensationalize current events to make you think the end of the world will come at any moment.

Matthew 24 speaks of many troubling events for the righteous, including persecution, the rise of false Christs and prophets, and love growing cold.
Many believe Matthew 24 is for Jews and not for the Church. You find this teaching especially popular with those who believe in the Pre-Trib Rapture. Even though this teaching is widespread, is it biblical?
After a lot of study, I believe the teaching that Matthew 24 is only for the Jews is unbiblical. In this article, I will explain why Matthew 24 applies to the Church.
Many believe 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18 is a key passage that proves that the Rapture will happen before the tribulation period. However, a closer study of this passage reveals that this is not the case. In this article, I will explain why 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18 does not prove a Pre-Trib Rapture.
A while back, a reader asked for my thoughts on who will populate the earth during the Millennium Kingdom. This is an important topic because many Rapture debates can hinge on this issue. For instance, many Pre-Trib supporters believe that Post-Trib supporters can’t answer this question. As a result, they dismiss the Post-Trib position.
Given the topic’s importance, I will explain who will populate the Millennium Kingdom in this article.
2 Thessalonians 2 tells us about a figure known as “the restrainer”. The restrainer is an entity that is holding back the unveiling of the Antichrist and the working of Satan’s full power. However, the restrainer will vacate their role in the end times. This will enable Satan and the Antichrist much more freedom to unleash evil on this world.
The identity of the 24 elders of Revelation is the subject of much speculation. Many theories about their identity exist. Some see the 24 elders as the Church and use this view to teach a Pre-Trib Rapture. Others disagree and offer their own theories.
In this article, I will share my insights on the identity of the 24 elders and comment on if we should use the 24 elders to promote the Pre-Trib Rapture. I will also talk about how Melchizedek, a mysterious figure, may be relevant in this discussion.
Pre-Trib Rapture teachers argue that the blessed hope will be fulfilled at the Day of Christ before the start of the tribulation. They argue that the Day of Christ is not the same as the Day of the Lord, which many believe will start after the tribulation. Therefore, our blessed hope can come at any time according to the Pre-Trib Rapture theory.
Will the blessed hope be realized at the appearance of Christ in a Pre-Trib Rapture? Is the Day of Christ different from the Day of the Lord? I will answer these questions and more in this article.
