The Rapture

April 29, 2009

Drew recently sent me this quote from Donna Newton about end times details:

I have resigned from the planning committee and am on the welcoming committee.

Ha!  That’s a good spirit to maintain as we study important but secondary doctrines like the nature of the millennium and the timing of the rapture.  But study we should!  Here are two resources in light of tonight’s Bible study on pre- and post-tribulationalism.

  1. Three Views on the Rapture by Archer, Feinberg, Moo, and Reiter (Zondervan, 1996).
  2. For a simple overview of pre-, post-, and a-millenialism that comes down on the side of historic premillenialism, see “The Millennium” (Chapter 55) in Wayne Grudem’s Systematic Theology (Zondervan, 1994).

Regardless of the timing of the rapture, be ready, for “surely I am coming soon.”  “Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!”  (Rev 22:20)
