The Biblical Defense for the Pre-Wrath Rapture of the Church 2 of 3

This video series introduces and defends the Pre-Wrath Rapture view. Even if you’re not sure about the Pre-Wrath Rapture view, or flat out don’t believe it, you may still find this video series interesting, and definitely scripturally solid.

“I believe it [the Pre-Wrath Rapture view] is the most biblically provable issue that you will ever find in scripture.” Robert Van Kampen

This series is presented by Robert Van Kampen and is largely based on his book, The Sign. It presents the doctrinal view and biblical defense for the Pre-Wrath Rapture of the Church contained therein. While I don’t agree with everything in the book, I do find the great majority to be what God had already shown me through His word, before I ever picked this book up. I highly recommend it.


A Word of Warning: The video on this recording is not great, but the audio is good, with the exception of a few minutes in the beginning.

Robert Van Kampen was an American businessman and Christian Author. Van Kampen’s published work primarily focused upon development of the “Pre-Wrath Rapture” position within fundamentalist Christian eschatology. His three published books were:

  • “The Sign” – A discourse on the “end times,” focusing on the “Pre-Wrath Rapture”
  • The Fourth Reich – A novel about the “end times”: Adolf Hitler’s spirit is released from Hell and enters an embryo created from his cloned DNA. He’s then born in Russia and grows up to become that country’s dictator, eventually revealing his true identity to the world before the UN General Assembly. Van Kampen also stated that Hitler “best meets all requirements to be the Antichrist” in his former book, The Sign
  • The Rapture Question Answered

  1. I was thinking about this last night and what you and I talked about yesterday. There will always be disagreements about the timing, but it is just cool that so many people are thinking about the Rapture, asking questions, and eagerly watching and waiting for Jesus to return. Amen, come Lord Jesus! God bless!

  2. I’m only a little bit acquainted with his teaching. Something goes off in the back of my memory that makes me think I should proceed with caution with him. I think you are proceeding in the same way. But as for me, I haven’t settled upon pre-wrath, but am leaning in that direction. I have an interpretation that is a little different that most pre-wrath positions I’ve seen. I’m keeping that under wraps for a least another year as I study it and compare it with more scriptures.

    • I’ve read his book, The Sign, and I agreed with the majority of his teaching. He does have some personal opinions about how some things will play out that I’m not necessarily in agreement on, but he’s careful to say that those are only opinion. Having said that, I always proceed with caution when it comes to anyone’s teaching because truthfully, none of us have it completely right. Overall, I believe scripture is clear that we will be removed just before the Day of the Lord (God’s wrath) begins.

  3. That’s a good principle to proceed with caution. I’ve listened to, read, and studied under many different teachers and pastors. But I have learned to treat them all just as they are.
    Just humans, prone to error and pride. But thankfully we can trust the scriptures. And I think you’re correct in the removal before the beginning of His wrath.

    • Thanks for your comment, Doug. We get into trouble when we don’t treat them all as humans prone to error and pride, don’t we? I think it’s important to pay attention to even the slightest nudge by the Holy Spirit when we’re reading or listening to someone, because He knows their heart and isn’t deceived by slight deviations, as we are.

      Yes, I definitely think the pre-wrath removal is the one that lines up with scripture most accurately. And it seems that God is opening the eyes of His people to the truth these days in preparation of what is to come.

      God bless!
