The Rapture, the Rhetoric and Reason

Is the Rapture of the Church Pre-Trib, Mid-Trib, Post-Trib or Pre-Wrath and Why It Matters?
  • By Eddie J. Smith
$35.29
Product Description

The author dares to refute dispensationalism in its arch-claim that it is a "literal" interpretation of Scripture. He also refutes their claim that God has two people, Israel and the Church. The Church has not replaced Israel but has become an extension of Israel. God has one holy people (Gal. 3:28-29). In the Parable of the Wheat and Tares it is the tares that are taken first (in death) and the wheat is left behind - exactly the opposite of what dispensationalism vehemently preaches (Matt. 13:30) 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 clearly teaches that the Antichrist must appear before the Day of the Lord appears. Dispensationalism is a heretical doctrine that divides the flock of God - it does not unite. Even dispensational leaders cannot agree on fundamentals such as the names and numbers of the dispensations. Dispensationalism is a changeling, a creature slowly evolving into an even more complicated and confusing system than it was under Darby.

And there is no imminent coming of Jesus Christ. As long as there is a sign to come to pass there can be no "any moment" coming. But what does it matter what one believes as long as they believe? The answer is given to us in the Parable of the Ten Virgins in Matthew 25. All ten virgins were awaiting the arrival of the Bridegroom. But he delayed his coming and five virgins proved foolish in running out of oil for their lamps because the Bridegroom delayed his coming! When our Lord returns and delays his coming to the midnight hour dispensationalists will be woefully unprepared and many will play the role of the five foolish virgins.
