PrewrathTHERE AREN’T many things that will set Christians at one another faster than a debate of the timing of the Rapture. The issue has been debated for years and isn’t likely to be settled until Christ Himself returns to explain it to us — and even then, there will probably be a few of us trying to explain why He’s wrong.

However, serious study of prophecy is important. Knowing where we are going, even if we don’t have a complete grasp of the details, is key to our Christian walk today. Alan Kurschner, director of Eschatos Ministries, host of The Biblical Prophecy Program and author of Antichrist Before the Day of the Lord and Prewrath: A Very Short Introduction, gives a brief overview of the Pre-Wrath Rapture position, some of the scriptural support for it, and where it differs from the Pre-Tribulation view.

Note: On September 28, 2014, Sharon and I will begin what we’re calling, for lack of a better name, the Gilbert House Fellowship. Our plan is to study through the Bible in a live webcast every Sunday morning. Log on to for more details as we get closer to the date.
