The Rapture

New THE RAPTURE: A Pre- or Post-Tribulation Event?

Colleen Wandmacher, 2017

$21.95 Ships within
24 hours!

God tells us not to be deceived about the timing of our being caught up to meet Jesus in the air, an event Christians refer to as the rapture. He would not have said that unless there was going to be an avalanche of false teaching with regard to the timing of the rapture in the sequence of end-time events. Diligently studying pertinent scriptures in God’s Word is the only way one can be free of deception and be spiritually prepared for the times that may befall us. This book helps the reader to deeply study the Word of God to see the truth. Chapter after chapter leads to the same conclusion—the rapture will be a post-tribulation event. 125 pages, large format paperback.

Michael Snyder answers those questions along with so many others in an uncompromising manner.

Evidence for the Rapture

A Biblical Case For Pretribulationism

John F. Hart (General Editor), 2015

Retail $19.99
Ships within
24 hours!

While disagreement about the end times may sometimes seem trivial, the times themselves are anything but that. God's revelation is to be taken seriously, even the more puzzling parts. Evidence for the Rapture sorts through what has stumped many for centuries: Scripture's teaching on the rapture. In this collection of exegetical essays, professors from leading Bible schools give a biblical and convincing case for a pretribulation rapture. In sound interpretive technique, they incorporate the relevant Scriptures from anumber of biblical angles, including:

  • The words of Jesus in the Gospels
  • Paul's teachings in the Epistles
  • Prophetic literature
  • Apocalyptic literature
  • The redemptive history of Israel

A strong contender in the ongoing end times debate, the doctrine of a pretribulation rapture has remained a fixture in many churches and institutions over the last few hundred years. Evidence for the Rapture is a fresh polish on this long-standing doctrine. 276 pages, paperback.

Trapped by the Pre-Trib Rapture

Could It Be You?

Randall L. True, 2011

Retail $15.99
Ships within
24 hours!

If you are a Christian believer and you have exclusive faith in the pre-Tribulation Rapture, this book is for you. You need to consider its 7 Rapture timing secrets. This book presents, in simple balanced logical steps, the major Biblical inferences for the pre-Trib and the post-Trib Rapture theories. The author does not dogmatically preach only one of the theories; rather he proposes that believers should balance their Rapture faith based on the various strengths of the evidence for each theory. The book gives a fair presentation of the two major theories, and then asks the reader to make an informed evaluation and only then apportion Rapture faith. It is the author’s opinion that a dogmatic 100% faith in any one of the Rapture theories is not justified and could in the future be dangerous to spiritual stability. In the Sections explaining the post-Tribulation Rapture inferences, Dr. True presents evidence that the “7-year” portion of the “Future” section of the book of Revelation (6:1—20:6) describes 7 self-contained concurrent narratives, each ending with YHWH’s wrath and the 24-hour Day of the Lord. He also presents a theory about the “mystery” in chapter 10. 226 pages, paperback, appendix, bibliography, index.

Rapture Delayed


Craig Plants, 2013

$14.95Ships within
24 hours!

The rapture is one of the greatest mysteries of the Bible—a dramatic prophecy that could be fulfilled at any moment, without warning. Within the evangelical church today, many teach that the rapture of the church by Jesus Christ will take place before the start of the great tribulation. But what if that teaching is wrong? What if the rapture comes later?

Craig Plants visits a concept rarely taught or acknowledged by the church. In Rapture: Delayed?, Plants shares his interpretation of events preceding Christ’s return and references a multitude of scripture, while following a chronological timeline of the end times and the return of Christ as outlined in the Bible. Included are the signs of Christ’s return, the rise of antichrist, his mark, exploration of a plausible example of a strong delusion as described in 2 Thessalonians that will trick multitudes into worshipping the antichrist, the difficult topic of children during the end times, the segregation and protection of the Jewish nation, and, finally, the timeline for the end. 188 pages paperback.

There are many ideas about what the Rapture is and when it will take place. However, Christ said, Be on your guard. I have told you everything ahead of time. Mark 13:23. Since He has told us everything ahead of time, the timing of the Rapture is no mystery. Scripture reveals the time of the Rapture numerous times and in various ways. Each and every time the Bible tells us the timing of Christ coming to gather His Church, the time is the same. Let the Watchman guide you to a biblical understanding. 224 pages, paperback, glossary.

The Return of Christ

A Premillennial Perspective
Reflections from the Acts 1:11 Conference

David L. Allen & Steve W. Lemke, editors, 2011

Retail $24.99
Ships within
24 hours!

In the study of end times (eschatology), evangelical Christians usually adhere to one of three positions. Premillennialism holds that Christ will return to earth before He reigns over an earthly kingdom for one thousand years. Postmillennialism says the kingdom of God will become realized on this earth through the church's influence, even before Christ's return. Amillennialism suggests the millennium is not a literal thousand-year reign, but that Christ's return will usher in eternity. The Return of Christ gathers presentations from the Acts 1:11 Conference where church leaders spoke in support of the premillennial position and pre-tribulation rapture. Regardless of whether or not a reader holds this same position, the text emphasizes the deep importance of eschatology in Christ's teaching ministry and as the focus for our hope. Indeed, without the promise of Christ's return, Christianity has little to offer the unbeliever. The book's dozen contributors include Jerry Vines, Ergun Caner, Danny Akin, Paige Patterson, David Allen, Richard Land, Junior Hill, Stanton R. Norman, Craig Blaising, Lamar Cooper, Steven Cox, and Michael Vlach. 285 pages, paperback, name index, Scripture index, subject index.

In today's day and age, the PreTrib Rapture position is becoming increasingly notorious to believe and espouse. It seems that more and more people are believing what Dave Macpherson and others are say - that the PreTrib Rapture is a creation of a few men, who sought to pull the wool over the eyes of many within evangelicalism. Apparently, according to MacPherson, they were successful. Rather than simply attempting to deal with aspects of this subject which have already been dealt with, author Fred DeRuvo tackles the claims against the PreTrib Rapture from another perspective. He deals with the plausibility of a few men being able to pull off what has got to be the greatest hoax the church has ever known...if it actually was a hoax. Beyond this, DeRuvo also deals with many other claims by the Anti-PreTrib Rapturist, finding out if these claims hold any water at all. 168 pages, paperback (7" X 10"), illustrated, list of resources.

Some Posttribulationists Say the Darndest Things

Obviously, not all aspects of Eschatology can be correct. Does this mean however, that an incorrect view of Eschatology means a lack (or even a loss) of salvation? Are the two connected? To hear some talk, the answer would be a vociferous "yes." Most often, people point to those who believe and espouse a PreTrib Rapture position, as one major source of error, resulting from deception. Not only is this view seen as erroneous, but it is also believed that the individuals who hold to this position are in grievous danger of falling headlong into the Great Tribulation completely unprepared. The tragic results of this, says those who warn, can only mean one thing: potential loss of salvation due to an underlying deception. Is this where the PreTrib Rapture position naturally leads? This book takes a look at the claims of those who condemn not only the PreTrib Rapture position, but the one who holds the position. 68 pages, paperback (7" X 10"), illustrated, list of resources.

The Pretrib Rapture

Choreographed in the Gospels

Retail $14.99
Ships within
24 hours!

The rapture is a subject of much controversy. Since scholars cannot agree on the timing of the rapture, how can we know what to believe? Is the rapture "pie in the sky" theology? This book does not tread a well-worn path. The Bible has more to say about the rapture than has been previously realized. This oft-surprising, ground-breaking book reveals the choreographed, pretrib answer from none other than Jesus Himself. While we in the church have been arguing amongst ourselves about the timing of the rapture, some no longer look for it. Others rip the spirit from the imminent return of the Lord, teaching that He only returns at the end of human history. The Pretrib Rapture Choreographed in the Gospels can resolve doubt, bring back hope, and instill confidence in the pretrib rapture. 172 pages, paperback.

We live in a world essentially devoid of hope. Visions of the future as portrayed by popular books and films include catastrophic events like asteroid strikes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and plagues. Images of the future are more often than not eerie, post-apocalyptic scenes complete with darkened skies over ruined cities presided over by chaos.

Those images are completely in harmony with the prophecies of the Book of the Revelation for the last days. But there is another prophecy-the promise of the Rapture of the Church. What is the Rapture? Which view is correct? What are the other views? Is the Rapture a recently developed doctrine? When will it take place? Who will go? Hal Lindsey explains in clear, easy to understand terms the answers to these and many other doctrinal issues surrounding the Rapture of the Church. 396 pages, paper.

What is God doing with the Gentiles today? Why is He doing it? When will He stop? What did you become a partaker of when you believed the gospel? What is our relationship to the Day of the Lord?

By following the Pauline pattern for edification, this book addresses these questions and more through an examination of the doctrinal issues set forth in the Thessalonian epistles. If successful, it ought to cause you to "walk in wisdom" and "redeem the time." It ought to produce "comfort," "stability" and an "earnest" expectation and longing in your soul for your "blessed hope" when you will be caught UP and AWAY. 209 pages, paper.
