In all of this world there is nothing so glorious as the thought of the Bride of Christ being united with the Bridegroom in an Eternal home of Heavenly bliss. However, the distorted teachings that have been propagated throughout the 20th century and now in the 21st century are alarming. Wouldn't it be nice for a change to spend some time thinking about "the Glorious Appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ" and not a "secret" catching up at the Midnight Hour?   The proponents of a "secret" pre tribulational rapture have obviously been "Blinded By The Light" of their own man made doctrine!  It should be clear to all that examine this false doctrine, that the scripture which says "Every eye shall see Him," is intended to be a tribute to the appearing of the Lord "with power and great glory."  (Matthew 24:30(c)   Contact: Doug Lamb In  Pensacola, Florida  850-449-3866

    Christ's return is NOT imminent !

    by Bruce Rockwell

    (Pretrib rapturists claim that Christ's return is imminent, that is, capable of occurring at any moment. Theologian and pastor Norman MacPherson, in his excellent book "Triumph Through Tribulation," offers proof that the Bible has never taught an any-moment return of Christ. Here are the points brought out and discussed at length by MacPherson:)

    1. Great Commission fulfillment implies a long period of time.
    2. Seed growth in Matthew 13 is a time-consuming process.
    3. Paul expected death, not rapture, in II Timothy 4:6-8.
    4. Jesus predicted Peter's martyrdom in John 21:18-19.
    5. Matthew 24 teaches that signs must come first.
    6. Many passages speak of a large interval between Christ's ascension and return: Jewish dispersion into "all nations" (Luke 21); "man travelling into a far country," "after a long time the lord of those servants cometh" (Matthew 25).
    7. Apostasy of last days takes time to develop.
    8. Bridegroom tarried in parable of virgins.
    9. Pastoral epistles teach Church's continuing ministry, which involves time.
    10. Paul says Christ's coming is not imminent (II Thessalonians 2:1-3), for apostasy and Antichrist must come first.
    11. View of seven phases of church history (seven churches of Revelation) involves big lapse of time and imminence difficulties for pre-tribs; could Christ have come before the last phase?
    12. Exhortations to watch and be ready are tied to what pre-trib teachers regard as the second stage (which is necessarily non-imminent) in Matthew 24 and 25, I Corinthians 1:7, Colossians 3:4, I Thessalonians 3:13, II Thessalonians 1:7-10, I Peter 1:13 and 4:13, and I John 2:28.

    (How can an "imminent" return of Christ have a greater practical effect on us than the indwelling of the Holy Spirit already has, or should have, on us?
