Lately, I have seen almost daily arguments on the internet about Rev. 3:10 and Rapture timing. After reading dozens of brief online opinions from every side of this disagreement, I decided to do an analysis of the CONTEXT of this verse. Hopefully this will be eye-opening and may clear up some confusion.
The most neglected rapture passage in the Bible lies almost hidden prior to its famous sister passage in the next chapter.
The debate between pretribulation rapture followers and prewrath scholars about Paul’s second letter to the Thessalonians has been fierce – mostly centered around 2 Thess. 2:3 and the meaning of the Greek word apostasia. I have written about that passage at length in my book Rapture: Case Closed? and have made my thoughts about that passage known. However, very little discussion has taken place about the passage that precedes 2 Thess. 2 and provides its “context,” that is 2 Thess. 1 – the most neglected rapture passage in the Bible.
In fact, I almost never read commentaries or books about this key passage. As most of us know, there were no chapter and verse divisions at the time Paul wrote his letter. The eschatological material in chapters one and two are really one continuous teaching! We cannot understand chapter two without understanding chapter one that provides introductory thoughts on the more hotly contested chapter.

In 1 Cor. 15:52, Paul used a term “Last Trumpet” which is not found elsewhere in the Bible. Read this article to see what he likely meant by this term; and what he DIDN’T mean. Continue reading What is the “Last Trumpet?”
The simple answer is when Jesus returns. But when does Jesus return? “When the Great Tribulation ends” is really a more complex question than most think. Continue reading When Will the Great Tribulation End?
Who is the servant who hides his treasure in the parable of the talents? Is this an end time parable?
Even if we face Antichrist, the saved will still be saved. Why is the rapture debate important?
The term “blessed hope” has become synonymous with a Pretrib. Rapture. So is the blessed hope the rapture … or something else?
This video explores a super important question, “Should we prepare to face Antichrist even if one is pretrib?”
