I recently engaged in a debate (May 26, 2006) against preterist Gary DeMar on the topic of "The Great Tribulation: Past or Future?"

Recently I just completed teaching through the Book of Revelation.[1] Something that really struck me this time through the book was the emphasis throughout of God’s creatures who rejoice and acknowledge the righteousness of God’s judgment throughout the tribulation and at the second coming.

Gumerlock will be presenting a possible pre-trib rapture find from the Apocalypse of Elijah in the October 2013 issue of Bibliotheca Sacra, which is a scholarly journal from Dallas Theological Seminary...
