Obviously, there is much more to the prewrath position than the discussion below. These four questions, however, will give you some idea of the location of the prewrath Rapture in relation to the 70th week of Daniel, the future seven-year period of end-times prophecy.
1. "Why is it called 'prewrath'?"
Believers are not appointed or destined to experience God's end-times wrath (1 Th 1:10, 5:9). (The Prewrath Chart will show that they are removed or rescued from the earth by the Rapture before God's wrath is poured out upon the unrighteous who dwell upon the earth; and not simply protected from it while on the earth.) The term used in Scripture for this period of wrath is the "Day of the Lord (DOL)." The Rapture occurs before this time of wrath; therefore, it is prewrath or pre-DOL.
2. "When does the DOL begin?"
Scripture is explicit. There are disturbances in the heavens which occur before the DOL (Joel 2:31). Though not a scriptural phrase, many refer to this event as "cosmic disturbances (CD)." The natural lights of the universe are "turned off." This defining event occurs in Mt 24:29 and in the sixth seal of Rev 6:12-17. Find the location of the CD and the Rapture/DOL follow.
3. "What is the location of the cosmic disturbances in relation to the 70th week?"
Comparing the events of Mt 24 with the events of Rev 6-8, one finds the following sequence of events:
a. Great Tribulation days begin at the mid-point of the 70th week (Mt 24:15-21; seal 5 in Rev 6:9-11).
b. Great Tribulation days are mercifully cut short by God through the CD (Mt 24:22,29; seal 6 in Rev 6:12-17).
c. The darkness of the CD is dispelled by the glorious coming of Christ in the clouds who then raptures His Church (in Mt 24:30-31, His coming and the Rapture are highlighted; in Rev 7:9, the results of the Rapture are highlighted).
NOTE: No one knows the day or hour when the CD, coming of Christ and Rapture occur.
d. With believers now removed, the wrath of God, found in the DOL, falls upon the unrighteous who dwell upon the earth (in Mt 24:37-42, the wrath of God falls upon the unprepared unrighteous just as it did in the days of Noah; in
Rev 8, silence in heaven in v1 anticipates the terrible unleashing of God's wrath which begins with the first trumpet in v7).
4. "So when does the Rapture occur?"
Scripture confirms the Rapture's timing at an unknown point within the second half of the seven-year period—immediately after the Great Tribulation days are cut short by the cosmic disturbances of seal six and prior to the start of God’s Day of the Lord wrath in the first trumpet—a PREWRATH RAPTURE!"
After examining the evidence in The Prewrath Chart, you can decide whether my journey has been one into confusion or one towards truth!
