  • Assemblies of God Position Paper on the Pretribulation Rapture (from their list of position papers) (If either link is broken, start at the AG home page.) (The weight of Scripture supports a pre-Tribulation Rapture)  Adopted August 14, 1979, This is one of the best summaries of the scriptural reasons to believe in the pre tribulation rapture.  I agree 100% with all of their statements and scriptures quoted with regard to the pre tribulation rapture.  They do not mention the Wedding nor the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanna) as examples in the position paper.  At one Assembly of God Church I attended in Redwood City, California, the Pastor and congregation believed that the rapture would fall on a Feast of Trumpets.
  • The Rapture: The word is Biblical.  Lists 170 types, or shadows, of the Rapture found in the Old Testament!
  • also (pretrib: acknowleding the Feast of Trumpets is the rapture) Huge website, full of many articles.
  • Hebraic Heritage Ministries International (Eddie Chumny)  Eddie shows how the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanna) depicts the rapture and how the Wedding pictures the rapture as well.   His book, "The Seven Festivals of the Messiah" has been put into html at his website and is free to read, and I highly recommend it. says his paperback book came out in 1994, and many fine pre trib teachers still have not heard about his well-researched work.  I have expanded his study of how the Wedding and Feast of Trumpets (rosh hashanna) pictures the rapture from scripture only.  I have truly been blessed by his work, and I find that the Bible confirms it wonderfully.  Nearly ALL of the verses in the Bible that speak of the pre tribulation rapture carry more meaning and significance when you understand the Feast of Trumpets and the Wedding.  When I was still a baby Christian, I found his work difficult to read, I would fall asleep trying to read it.  He uses many Jewish terms that make it difficult to read.  He also makes use of many Jewish traditions in his comparisons.  I have confirmed parts of his work through scriptural comparisons in the King James.
  • Ariel Ministries (Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum) A Messianic Jew, he teaches about the rapture & the Feast of Trumpets.  See his article under "Fruit from the Frucht, and then click on "The Feasts of Israel".  Dr. Fruchtenbaum was one of the most well respected Bible scholars at the Ninth Annual Pre Trib Study Group conference that I attended in Dallas, TX on December 11th, 2000, which has been sponsored by Tim LaHaye, author of the famous "Left Behind" series, and by Tommy Ice.  Dr Fruchtenbaum also talks about the Wedding.  He is in very high demand as a prophecy speaker, travelling and lecturing almost continuously.

  • Bible Prophecy Corner: WHEN WILL THE RAPTURE BE "NIGH AT HAND"? (M.J. Agee) Agee had predicted a rapture on Pentecost, 1988, and several other dates since.  She has not stopped trying to anticipate a secific date for the rapture, now looking to Pentecost, '01.  She's still learning, as are we all.  Hers was the first website that caught my attention, and led me to begin studying the topic of the rapture, which I knew so little about back in 1997.
    Teachings about APOSTASIA AS DEPARTURE (which I agree with)
  • (John Sweigart) Apostasia ~ Departure article :
  • Great Falling Away after the Departure of the Church (Prof. J.S. Malan) apostasia is departure
  • K.S. Wuest on 2 Thes 2:3 apostasia means departure

  • 2 Thessalonians: An Exegetical and Devotional Commentary
  • What Saith The Scriptures? Must There Be a Pre-Tribulational Rapture? --Proving pretrib in 2 Thess 2, without acknowledging that apostasia means departure.
  • Book: "The Great American Lie" by Rick Thorne, a pretrib rapture believer (available at, you can search by book title or  ISBN 0-937327-00-X) This book covers Government and Business Conspiracies, the New World Order, Who are the International Bankers, Freemasonry, The Illuminati, the Occult, Humanity's legal Rights, Kennedy Murder, Why people are being Microchipped, The Protocols Of The Wise Men Of Zion, What happens when draw our last breath here on planet earth, Signs of The End Times, and the pretribulation rapture.  TWO THIRDS OF THE BOOK IS CONSPIRACY CONCERNING THE INTERNATIONAL BANKERS (ILLUMINATI) AND THE REST OF THE BOOK IS PROPHECY AND SALVATION.
    The "Baptist version" of the Pretrib rapture is different than what I see in the Bible, and is different than what I teach.  I believe their vision is most distorted and darkened by the "once saved always saved" doctrine which is a heresy.  I think most of the most popular rapture teachers are in this camp: Scofield, John Walvoord, Hal Lindsey, Jack Van Impe, Tim LaHaye, and the Dallas Theological Seminary.  They typically deny that the rapture is taught in Matt 24-25; denying that the parable of the ten virgins of Matt 25:1-3 is the rapture.  They usually focus on the difference between Israel and the Church.  They teach "dispensationalism".  They teach against a "partial rapture" which I believe in.  They usually don't think the Feasts of the Lord, or the Feast of Trumpets teaches about the rapture, and they believe in "imminency" instead.  I have identified several major PRETRIB ERRORS they teach about the pretribulation rapture that primarily stem from this doctrinal group.  I believe that Calvary Chapel also teaches the rapture from this viewpoint, since their textbook for teaching the rapture is John Walvoord's book.   I think (not exactly sure) that the authors below typically teach something similar to the errors contained in the paragraph above.
  • EndTime Bible Prophecy This site quotes many key scriptures in full.  He presents 20 PROPHETIC SIGNS THAT WE ARE IN THE END TIMES. I disagree with the "at any moment" rapture he presents.  I believe all the verses which imply a type of unknown time day or hour refer to the groom coming for his bride according to the Wedding, and to the unknown day of the Feast of Trumpets.  I believe God acts at "appointed times", and that we will not be in darkness as to the appointed time of the rapture if we examine and study the Feast of Trumpets and the Wedding of the Messiah.

    These web sites have greatly honored my work and studies by featuring it at their websites or giving this website a prominant link: (Todd Strandberg) --This site sends me a lot of visitors (likke Todd does).  They are even in another language! (Ray Lambert) --here's a website that teaches against thee pretribulation rapture, yet implores his visitors to view my mark of the beast page. (Of course, not all my links on the topic of the mark of the beast support the pretribulation rapture, either.  Odd how that works out.)
