On January 21, 2020, I traveled to Dinosaur Adventure Land in Conecuh County, Alabama, where I debated the topic of the Rapture with Kent Hovind. Kent took the Post Trib/Pre-Wrath position while I took the position that there was no rapture since there is no future seven-year period in which the Antichrist makes and breaks a covenant with Israel.
I based my arguments on Daniel 9:24–27, a sequence of verses that does not mention a gap between the 69th and 70th weeks of the 70-weeks-years (490) years, an antichrist, or a covenant made and broken by an antichrist.
Lots of people wondered why I would do a debate with Kent. It’s because it was close enough for me to drive (four hours) and he has a very large audience.
In fact, in less than three weeks, the debate has been viewed more than 35,000 times. You can view or hear the debate by clicking on the following:
Many people ask why I keep dealing with prophetic systems that claim we are always living on the cusp of some always near prophetic event. The answer is simple: Because there are millions of Christians who believe it and act (or not act) in such a way because they believe it’s hopeless and futile to engage with the issues that are affecting our nation. For them, we are living on a sinking Titanic, so why rearrange the deck chairs if it’s all going down?
Such beliefs have a negative impact on our nation and its institutions. It’s not that every believer in one of the five rapture positions is indifferent to cultural engagement, but enough of them are that it’s making a negative difference.
To help Christians traverse prophetic issues in a readable and comprehensive way, I’ve written ten books on the subject. Here’s my latest and two that have recently been reprinted:
My newest book on the subject is The Rapture and the Fig Tree Generation. All the material in this book is new. Some of the topics covered have never been dealt with by prophecy writers.
These and many more relevant questions are answered in The Rapture and the Fig Tree Generation.
Last Days Madness is the most comprehensive. It covers everything from date setting and failed predictions to the identity of the Man of Lawlessness and the Antichrist and much more in between:
It’s been out of print for a few months, but it’s available again here.
Wars and Rumors of Wars is a comprehensive study of Matthew 24 and the lead-up in chapter 23. It covers each verse and shows that Jesus was referring to the generation of His day and not a future generation. In addition to the comprehensive study, I’ve included a shortened version at the end of the book that’s helpful for someone who will not read a 195-page book.
