Is Pre-Trib. theology correctly applying hermeneutic principles?
Answer: No. Pre-Trib. uses inaccurate definitions
and conflicts with Scripture:
If words "Tribulation' and "Wrath" are synonymous in nature to describe the entire 7-Year "Tribulation
Period" as "Wrath", as Pre-trib claims, then Scripture is also in conflict with it’s self-stating
I.e.: "We are subject to “tribulation” in this world, but "not subject
Pre-Trib tries to define the word "Tribulation" as synonymous to "Wrath", in efforts to
justify the rapture at the start of the 7-year"Tribulation" Period is inaccurately applied hermeneutical principles.
Therefore, Pre-Trib theology does not stand
on a solid hermeneutical foundation - to justify the entire 7 year “Tribulation Period” as “Wrath”.
Jesus Himself called it “Tribulation” in Mth. 24: 5-21 until after the "Great
Scripture confirms this hermeneutical position in Rev. 6 from the 1st “sign”
aka “Seal”, thru to the 6th seal that follows the
“Great Tribulation” (which is After the abomination
of desolation at 3.5 years of 7). After the "Great Tribulation",
Rev. 6:17 then state: “for the great day of His "wrath" (Ebrah) IS come: and who shall be able to stand?”
the “Day Of the Lord” and His “Wrath”.
In Rev. 8, the breaking of the 7th seal and consequential opening the scroll releases the 7 trumpets
of God’s wrath (Ebrah), of which the seventh trumpet (Rev. 16) contains the 7 bowls of God’s wrath.
The "Day of the Lord" throughout scripture
is always associated with God's judgment of “wrath” upon the unrepentant; as in the days of Noah and
Jeremiah, after tribulation had failed to cause repentance.
Question: Laying aside any preconceived beliefs, is this not correctly
applied hermeneutic principles? If it violates any hermeneutical principles such as “clear and literal, in context
and scripture interpreting scripture”, what may that be? Particularly Mth. 24:5-31, Rev. 6-7 &16, Plus Isa. 13:6,9-10 24:21-23 Zec. 14:1-6, II Peter 3:10-12, Amos 8:9.
“Tribulation” described in Matthew 24:5 – 29 is also concurrently described by John in Revelation chapter 6.
“Wrath” of God / Jesus, in Revelation Chapters 8 –16, is then poured
out in Judgment upon the unrepentant.
Wrath translated from
Hebrew word “Ebrah” (Orges in Greek); Strong’s #5678 connotes the “overflowing
fury of God”; and is only used in conjunction with "Day of the Lord" wrath after the 7 th
seal is broken, and the scroll of God’s wrath is opened.
Jesus’ Olivet Discourse on the “End of the “Age”
and on His ‘Coming’:
24:3-4: “And as He (Jesus) sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately,
saying, tell us, when shall these things be, & what will be the Sign
of Your Coming (Parousia), & the end of the world
answered and said to them …”:
Mth.24:5: Jesus warns against
deceptions of false Messiahs / Beliefs / Gods / Values.
Mth. 24:6 Wars
Mth. 24:7 Famine
Mth. 24:7 Pestilence & Earthquakes
Mth. 24:8 Jesus states that these things are the:
"Beginning of Sorrows" (KJV), or “Birth Pangs” (NIV)
Tribulation (Peirasmos; trials, testings, temptation tribulations)
described by John as the first 4 “seals” in Rev. 6:1-8.
Mth. 24:9 Tribulation & Martyrs (Thlupsis; Affliction, Persecution tribulations
of Christians). Concurrently described
by John in Revelation 6:9-11 as
the 5 th seal following the “Abomination or Desolation”.
Mth. 24:13 "He
that endures to the end will be saved".
Mth. 24:15 When you see the Abomination of desolation
by the Antichrist
beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together
unto him … for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,
who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God …. then the lawless one will be revealed,
whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming
“Parousia”… whose coming is after the working of Satan …” 2 Thes. 2:1,3,8,9
Mth. 24:21 "Then
shall the Great Tribulation begin …"
Mth. 24: 22 “except it (the Great Tribulation) be shortened no flesh
saved, but for the elect’s sake, those days shall be shortened"
Note: The "elect"
are Christ's "chosen"; Gentile or Israel believers in the Messiah, Who returns to gather His “elect” before the "Day of the Lord" & His wrath during the 7th seal.
At this time, the “elect” are NOT
Jews return to Israel, nor the faithful 144,000 of Israel protected by a seal of protection; from the wrath about to be unleashed
Rev. 7:3-4. See also Rev. 9:4 (not hurt those sealed)
Mth. 24:29 Immediately After
the Tribulation (* “Peirasmos” i.e. trials) of those
shall the sun be darkened and the moon give no light,
and the stars fall from heaven.
Concurrently described by John in Rev. 6:12-17 as the 6 th seal:
The 6th seal
also signals the end of the “Great Tribulation”: Immediately
after the tribulation of those days then shall the sun be darkened and the moon give no
light, and the stars fall from heaven.
The 6th seal was also prophesied to come "before"
the "Day of the Lord" & His Wrath (* “Ebrah”) at the 7th seal. (“Ebrah”; the overflowing
fury of God”)

"For God has not destined us for wrath
(Ebrah / Orges) …. " 1 Thes.
Jesus then breaks the 7th seal; thus opening the
scroll releasing His “wrath” (Ebrah;
not Peirasmos) upon the unrepentant, left after the rapture. Rev. 8 –16.
“Wrath”, described inside the scroll, is delivered AFTER the 7th
seal has been broken by Jesus, then the 7 trumpets and 7 bowls of “God’s
wrath” in Rev. 8 –16 continues until the Feast
of Atonement aka. Judgment.

No man knows the "day or the hour" of Jesus's return, but we are expected to know the "Season" of
“… regarding a Festival or a new moon or Sabbaths, which are a shadow of
things to come …” Col. 2:16-17
Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times.” Mth. 16:3
Jesus comes and stays to deliver wrath upon the
“… I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll
written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals… Behold, the Lion of
the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the
scroll and to loose its seven seals." …. And they sang
a new song, saying: "You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed
us to God by Your blood …” Rev. 5:1,5,9
“He was clothed with a robe dipped in
blood, and His name is called The Word of God….
And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God…. And He has on His robe and
on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS…. Then I saw an angel standing in the
sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, "Come and gather together for the supper of the great God” Rev.
Jesus “Comes” (Parousia) only Once:
AFTER “Tribulation” (seals 1 –6), and BEFORE “wrath” (7th seal) per Rev. 6 and Mth. 24:5-31. The first 6 seals of “Tribulation” ‘caused’
by God’s permissive will was allowed by God; to encourage repentance prior to wrath and judgment.
Jesus then gathers His “elect” / "chosen" prior to wrath; Mth. 24:30-31 (Pre-Wrath
Raptured); as Jesus Himself clearly states.
Jesus then continues to stay and deliver His Wrath;
(7th seal), until Judgment has been delivered, and then to rule in His Millennial Kingdom 1,000 years
in a "Year of Jubilee".
(No coming and going) This
period completes the “Feasts Of The Lord” Feasts of Trumpets proclaiming the time to repent, unto the “Feast
of Atonement” / Judgment, unto the “Year of Jubilee”.
Note: The period
of “Tribulation” (Peirasmos & Thlupsis), during the first 6 seals were allowed by
God through His permissive will to cause repentance; before His “wrath” and Judgment upon the unrepentant.
I.e. Typical of warnings given by God in scripture to repent, before God unleashes His “over
flowing fury” / wrath.
Note: Christians are subject to the “tribulation” of the first 5 seals of false beliefs, wars, famine
and pestilence and are clearly martyred starting at the “Abomination of Desolation”; as
noted by both Jesus at Mth. 24:9-21, and by John at Rev. 6:9-11.
“The DAY OF THE LORD”
& “HIS WRATH”:
Much more then, being now
justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. Rom. 5:9
God hath not appointed us to wrath, (“Ebrah”) but to obtain salvation …. I Thes. 5:9
“For the great
day of His wrath (Ebrah / Orges) is come; and who shall be able to stand? Rev. 6:17
The first use of the word “wrath” in Revelation is at Rev. 6:17, and is a prelude
statement to breaking the 7th seal, which then allows OPENING of the SCROLL, releasing God’s
wrath as written in the scroll.
Please take a moment to visualize the scroll with the 7 seals per Rev. 5:1,5. The scroll contains the wrath of God, but is not opened until ALL 7 seals are broken; opened by “the Lion of the tribe of Judea”.
6 seals are representative of conditions; that must be met before the last seal is broken, and the scroll of wrath is opened.
Only upon breaking the last seal (the 7th seal) is the scroll opened - to release “God’s wrath”: The
“7 Trumpets of God’s of
God’s wrath, and the 7 bowls of God’s wrath begin.
Consequently, upon failure to repent during first 6 seals of “tribulation”
allowed by God (Rev. 6 and Mth. 24:5-29), the 7 trumpets & 7 Bowls
of God's WRATH are then released upon the unrepentant (Rev. 8 – 16).
The first 6 seals are God’s permissive will; to allow tribulation / testing onto affliction / persecution (“Peirasmos to Thlupsis”), for the purpose of encouraging repentance during the hour of
testing; BEFORE God’s wrath
is poured out upon the unrepentant.
Aka the “Days of Awe” call for repentance; between the Feast of Trumpets, and the Feast of Atonement / Judgment!
"Wrath" (Ebrah / Orges), introduced in
Rev. 6:17, is only used in conjunction with the "Day of the Lord" and His wrath”, after the 7th
seal in Rev. 8 – 16, and as judgment upon the unrepentant.
The correct linguistic distinction
between “Tribulation” and “Wrath”, is essential for any accurate
hermeneutical determination; of when it is applicable to apply the term “Rapture”.
Therefore any possible application, of how or when
to apply the word “rapture”, must first take into consideration the significant
difference between the words “tribulation” and “wrath” and their usage
See: "Tribulation to Rapture to Wrath" Hermeneutics file link
Therefore, the first 4 seals
of “tribulation”, the 5th seal “Great Tribulation” and the 6th seal cosmic
disturbance precede God’s wrath that is poured out after the 7th seal containing “God’s
Wrath” after it has been opened by the “Lamb of God”
Pre Wrath Rapture: After “Tribulation,
but before “Wrath”.
The Pre-Tribulation rapture interpretation incorrectly equates “trials / temptations / tribulations”
during to seals 1 thru 6 as equivalent to “wrath” to justify believers “not subject to wrath;
and therefore a promised “rapture”.
Rapture interpretation also incorrectly attempts to support the position of 3 Separate comings of the Lord:
One coming for the rapture of the “elect”
/ saints at the beginning of the 7-year period.
Second coming to
gather the “elect” (per Mth. 24:31) of Israel after the “Great Tribulation” (initiated by the “Abomination
of Desolation” (Mth.24:15)
Then finally His coming return in glory at the end of the 7 year period.
contradicts what Jesus said in Mth. 24: 5-31 and Rev. 6 & 7
Disarming the people into a false sense of security
… as in the days of Noah!
"But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming
of the Son of Man be. "For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage,
until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming
of the Son of Man be. Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.”
