Whether you call it the “return of Christ,” “the Second Coming,” or the “Rapture,” there has been so much debate over the centuries about what the Bible teaches. Many have concluded the subject of Jesus’ return is too complicated, or too confusing to understand. One reader said… “Reading, The Return was my ‘light bulb’ moment. Although God’s master pieces can be complicated, His past, present and future master plan for His creation is quite simple and easy to understand. The Return grips you with an almost unbelievable and detailed story of Christ’s return, then shines the light on what the Bible says, rather than trusting the blind to lead the blind. God is not the author of confusion. So why have we been so confused for so long? Until now…” Begins with a story of how the return of Christ could happen, and then explains the scriptures and compares the different views of Christ’s return.
Antichrist Before the Day of the Lord is arguably the best book on the timing of the Rapture ever written. Originally published in 2013 by New Testament scholar Alan Kurschner (PhD), this book presents the Biblical case for what is known as the Pre-Wrath Rapture theory. In essence, Pre-Wrath is a modified, yet more Biblically nuanced and accurate, version of the Post-Tribulation Rapture theory. Pre-Wrath maintains that believers do go through the Great Tribulation and face the Antichrist (contrary to Pre-Trib). However, it also maintains that believers are in fact taken into heaven for a brief period of time after the Great Tribulation, before finally returning to the earth with Jesus (contrary to traditional Post-Trib). Kurschner explains the timing of end time events, including the chronology of the book of Revelation, better than anyone.
Many of us have been told that we will be “raptured out of here before the Antichrist arrives.”
But what if this is wrong? Is this really what the Bible teaches?
Jesus warns us, “Remember, I have told you ahead of time” (Matt. 24:25). And Paul cautions us, “Let no one in any way deceive you, for that day will not arrive until the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness [Antichrist] is revealed, the son of destruction” (2 Thess. 2:3). Since Jesus and Paul ominously warn us “ahead of time,” should this not be an urgent message the church needs to hear? Are we spiritually preparing our hearts to be “overcomers” for what may soon come to pass? By reading Prewrath: A Very Short Introduction to the Great Tribulation, Rapture, and Day of the Lord, you will discover the Bible teaches that the Antichrist will arrive before the return of Christ.
What if God calls upon us to be the final generation to face the Antichrist? Should you fight against him? Should you flee to safety? Or should you stand in faith? In Fight, Flight, or Faith: How to Survive the Great Tribulation, Charles Cooper answers that question. Cooper concludes that physical resistance will prove futile and that modern technology makes hiding impossible. Thus, the answer, he says, is faith. But how much faith will be required? Will you have enough?
This is the first scholarly defense of the pillars of the prewrath position put forth by Charles Cooper, former professor at Moody Bible Institute and now founder of the Prewrath Resource Institute and one of the position’s most well-respected lecturers. The book takes a serious academic look at the application of Matthew 24:1-31 and Daniel 9 to the Church, but is written to be accessible to readers at all levels. The first section deals in-depth with the issue, “Does Matthew 24:1-31 apply to the Church?” In this section, Cooper examines what can be learned, both from the text and from the writings of the church fathers. On the issue of text, he looks at language issues, culture, book composition, authorship and intent of the gospel, and much more. On the issue of Daniel 9, he looks at issues related to event dating, prophetic context, and original language, ultimately putting forth an unexpected interpretation of the fulfillment of the 69th Week.
Have you learned the parable of the fig tree? If not, you are commanded by Jesus to learn this lesson. End-times speculation and scenarios continue to flood the land. how are we to discern the true markers of Christ’s return from the false? The Lord ha announced the signs and conditions that will herald His return. We are called to read and pay attention. He Himself warned us: “Take heed; behold, I have told you everything in advance” (Mark 13:23). In this book, pastor and teacher Ryan Habbena explores the scripture’s primary texts regarding the second coming of Jesus Christ and the events that surround this glorious event. By taking the reader through the Olivet Discourse, the books of Daniel and Revelation, and the Thessalonian epistles, Habbena teaches how we should learn and apply the “parable of the fig tree” in order to be watching and well-prepared for the return of the King of Kings.
Jesus is coming again! That fact is certain and irrefutable. But what are the circumstances… what is the chronology concerning His return… how does it affect the world and the Church? Is the Lord’s return for His bride and the judgment of the wicked in preparation for His Millennial Kingdom pre-, mid-, post-tribulational, or pre-wrath? The foreshadowing of end-time events is getting larger and clearer. It is imperative that believers give immediate and renewed attention to the prophetic Word.
A book which simplistically, insightfully and systematically presents an integrated, concrete overview of the 22 chapters, or 404 verses, of the book of Revelation. “Revelation Unsealed” approaches the text of Revelation from what is termed the Pre-Wrath Rapture perspective. This is the hotly debated view that the church will enter the Seventieth Week, undergo the great tribulation of the Antichrist, and be gathered off the earth before the wrath of God unfolds. This view is presented in a logical scenario, which is then placed within the overall context of the Apocalypse. Also contained is an entirely fresh biblical perspective of the emergence of the Antichrist. Additionally, this book also fully covers the relevance of world events, the amazing track record of biblical prophecy, the fulfillment of the seven religious feast of Israel, the battle of Armageddon, and the Millennial Kingdom of Jesus Christ. All of these issues are addressed in a concise and simple manner with numerous charts and illustrations to aid the reader in easily conceptualizing and visualizing what is outlined.
The Passover King is an in-depth study of Bible prophecy and the return of Jesus. It covers many key biblical texts from Genesis to Revelation, and illustrates how the feast of Passover functions as an eschatological blueprint that can help us understand future prophetic events in a deeper way. Some of the key topics covered in this book include: the eschatological significance of the biblical feasts, God’s will for Israel in the last days, essential texts related to the rise of the Antichrist, the Gog of Magog invasion, the timing of the Rapture, the sequence of events in Revelation, what Jesus is going to do when He returns, and God’s will for believers in the days ahead.

How should Scripture be understood when it speaks of Antichrist–literally or allegorically? And if Antichrist and his persecution are for real, will the church have to undergo this terrible time of persecution, or will she be raptured?
The Bible could not be clearer as to the answers of these critical question. The Rapture Question Answered points readers to those answers in a readable, lay-level style that does not sacrifice the importance of scholarship.
Can we know when the end of the age will occur, or even what will happen when it comes? Will the church experience a time of terrible persecution at the hands of a real Antichrist? These questions have profound implications. Ultimately, for all of us, eternity hangs in the balance. The Sign has tackled the challenge of answering these questions by tracing God’s plan for the nation of Israel and the church as revealed from the Old Testament to the New. Taking Scripture at face value and expecting a literal fulfillment of biblical prophecy concerning the last days, author Robert Van Kampen offers this end-times road map–including the sequence of events and the timing of the Rapture–without crossing the line into date-setting.
Since the beginning of Christianity, believers have struggled with one of the most distressing questions of faith: “Will the church face the Antichrist?” This is perhaps the most complete book to date on the subject of “the Rapture.” It examines each of the popular tribulation theories in detail and presents astonishing new biblical insights that appear to identify the point at which the Rapture occurs. Through 147 specific and stunning scriptural proofs (dozens never-before-published), Nelson Walters comprehensively builds a case that reveals the nature and timing of the Rapture. In September, 2017, 1000 copies of “Rapture: Case Closed?” were sent to the top leaders of the English speaking church. As a ground-breaking and comprehensive book, it is the perfect vehicle to encourage discussion and debate within the church.And, perhaps most importantly, it provides the faithful with the information they will need to prepare for the most fundamentally challenging period in human history: The Tribulation.

The rapture, or the belief that, at some point, Jesus’ living followers will join him forever while others do not, is an important but contested doctrine among evangelicals. Scholars generally hold one of three perspectives on the timing of and circumstances surrounding the rapture, all of which are presented in Three Views on the Rapture. The recent prominence of a Pre-Wrath understanding of the rapture calls for a fresh examination of this important but contested Christian belief. Alan D. Hultberg (PhD, Trinity International University and professor of New Testament at Talbot School of Theology) explains the Pre-Wrath view; Craig Blaising (PhD, Dallas Theological Seminary and president of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary) defends the Pre-Tribulation view; and Douglas Moo (PhD, University of St. Andrews and professor of New Testament at Wheaton College) sets forth the Post-Tribulation view.
