The World in Conflict and Distress, Pt 1 (John MacArthur)

When is Jesus coming back? Christians have been asking that question for two thousand years. Longer actually, long before Christs crucifixion His apostles asked Him the same thing. Its a question Jesus took seriously. His answer is recorded in the longest episode of scripture. So if the events surrounding the Lords second coming are a mystery to you, they shouldnt be, Christ provided those details which are the subject of todays edition of Grace to You. Lets join Pastor John MacArthur as he takes us into the past as he gives us a clearer view, of the future.

John MacArthur & Pretrib Rapture

Who knows, maybe John (Reformedispy) MacArthur is right and the greatest Greek scholars (Google "Famous Rapture Watchers"), who uniformly said that Rev. 3:10 means PRESERVATION THROUGH, were wrong. But John has a conflict. On the one hand, since he knows that all Christian theology and organized churches before 1830 believed the church would be on earth during the tribulation, he would like to be seen as one who stands with the great Reformers. On the other hand, if John has a warehouse of unsold pretrib rapture material, and if he wants to have "security" for his retirement years and hopes that the big California quake won't louse up his plans, he has a decided conflict of interest. Maybe the Lord will have to help strip off the layers of his seared conscience which have grown for years in order to please his parents and his supporters - who knows? One thing is for sure: pretrib is truly a house of cards and is so fragile that if a person removes just one card from the TOP of the pile, the whole thing can collapse. Which is why pretrib teachers don't dare to even suggest they could be wrong on even one little subpoint! Don't you feel sorry for the straitjacket they are in? While you're mulling all this over, Google "Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty" for a rare behind-the-scenes look at the same 180-year-old fantasy.
