Does the Bible teach a pre-tribulation rapture of the church?

I love Dr. Brown and his ministry. However, I strongly encourage him to review Renald Showers' exhaustive treatment and inferential argument for a pretrib position. Based on Dr. Browns' statement about harmonizing the trumpet passages, I would have to assume he has not read "Maranatha: Our Lord Come!" Showers' addresses the trumpet issue among many others. His book is a must-read for anyone who wants to comment on the rapture in an informed way. Best work on the rapture in print.

Anyone in doubt of the post-tribulation rapture should read the words of Jesus in Matthew 24:29-31. So explicit!

Renald Showers has written extensively in defense of the pre-Trib rapture. You should interview him or go on John Ankerberg and do a debate there. The last seven years of current human history melds perfectly with the first "week" of the marriage between Christ and his Bride..interview Showers.

Jesus said in luke 17, rapture will take place during good times of eating, drinking , marrying, when ppl least expecting it, rapture will happen suddenly, just before the 1st trumpet judgement (hail and fire) which is wrath of God falls upon the world. 2nd coming will take place during tribulations, after the trumpet & bowl judgements and during great war by anti christ armies, mention in zechariah 14 & rev19. Jesus will land on mt Olive during an invasion of Israel and destroy the armies. This is also mentioned in luke 21. Rapture during peace time is explained in luke 17, 2nd coming during tribulations is explained by Jesus in luke 21 - they are 2 separate events very clearly defined and explained separately by Jesus.

Rapture is Biblical and for those who are shocked keep reading and learning. The Messiah is coming back once!

I agree with your assessment Dr. Brown, but you do realize that this removes the false security of millions of Christians who believe they will not have to face the Anti-Christ during the tribulation?
