FROM THE INTRODUCTION:
There are four major areas of prophecy we will consider in this book: the Second Coming of Christ the Great Tribulation (of Matthew 24) the Seventy Weeks of Daniel and the Antichrist. Fine Christian people whose sincerity we do not question have often taken different sides as to the proper interpretation of these prophecies. In some cases almost opposite beliefs are held....
All Christians generally believe that Christ will come again and believers will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air. But as to the time of this event (in relation to other events ) there is not this general agreement. De Haan says that believers will be caught "up into heaven" BEFORE the tribulation period; Oswald Smith says: "There is not a single verse in the Bible that upholds the pre-tribulation theory"
According to Dake the New Testament teaches TWO second comings; Fletcher says the New Testament no where teaches two future comings of Christ. Concerning the Antichrist some say the Bible plainly teaches that the Antichrist will not be revealed until AFTER the "rapture." Others say the Bible plainly teaches that the Antichrist will be revealed BEFORE the rapture takes place.
Concerning the seventieth week of Daniel one side says it is yet FUTURE. The other side teaches it has been FULFILLED. One side applies the seventieth week to the ANTICHRIST; the other side to JESUS CHRIST!
With differences such as these regardless of which side we take we will have to disagree with someone In disagreeing however it is not our intention to be disagreeable. As the noble Bereans of old it will be our goal to "search the Scriptures" to determine what the Bible really says....
