I’ve just published two more articles at www.redmoonrising.com.
The first is called “The Red Moon Rapture compared to the Pre-Wrath Rapture” and is a critique of what I see as weak points in the popular Pre-Wrath prophetic model.
The second is called “Paul Teaches the Olivet Discourse to the Church” and is a subtle critique of certain Pre-Trib scholars who argue that Jesus did not teach the Olivet Discourse to the Church. I show that He did, because Paul takes the same information and teaches it to the Church of the Thessalonians. Why is this important? Well, Jesus taught us very emphatically to “watch” for certain signs. If that is true, then the rapture cannot be “imminent” and it is not a “signless” event that could take us by surprise “at any moment”… At least not for those who are watching and praying according to Jesus’ instructions TO THE CHURCH in Luke 21:36,
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
The fulfillment of this passage is shown in Revelation 7 when the Church is described in Heaven, having escaped away from the great tribulation (without experiencing it, just like Lot escaped Sodom), standing next to the Son of Man. (This all takes place prior to the seven-year tribulation, by the way… at least as far as I’ve got it worked out). And oh yeah, Happy New Year!
