Hal Lindsey/John MacArthur

Dear Holly,

How are you?

Just read that Hal Lindsey's website is upgrading to handle increased traffic (they are operating below normal standards, due to upgrade). Was wondering if you might have considered posting info. about Pastor John McArthur apparently recently stating (3-4 mo's. ago), in a sermon, that the pre-wrath position may be correct.

Just a thought.

Hi Nony,

I had heard about MacArthur's sermon, but didn't know where to locate it. Do you know where I can find it? I'm definitely interested in hearing it and perhaps posting it.

Don't know if you are aware of the following, Holly, but thought you might find it interesting (the url has "08 in it, so apparently the Prewrath Conference was held this year):

This conference and the keynote speech were both titled, “Pre-Wrath - Fifteen Years and Beyond!”

Why is 15 years of interest? In 1990, Marv Rosenthal predicted that prewrath rapturism would become a major position within 15 years. In 2007, just a little over 15 years later, he was given a contract by Zondervan to write the prewrath rapture view for a revised version of Three Views of the Rapture. This demonstrates that prewrath rapturism is now a major player. The scholar representing the pre-tribulation view is four months late delivering his portion of the manuscript - and, as Marv noted to approving laughter - is in danger of being left behind. The book should be out later this year.

Dr. Rosenthal exhorted us that we are rocketing quickly toward the end. We must, therefore, act quickly and with all our might. He received a standing ovation for his encouragement to us and for the stand he has taken all these years for the truth (at great cost to himself and his family). He and Dr. Cooper are examples of men who have stood for the truth against great odds, regardless of the consequences. They are to be honored and emulated.

Next came the highly anticipated book signing. Charles Cooper made a gift of his new book, God's Elect and the Great Tribulation, to every family unit present. He wrote a personal note in each copy. This was a joy-filled line and quite possibly the highlight of the conference.

Allen Hadidian exhorted us during the closing session on Saturday morning. Pastor Hadidian served as an associate pastor at John MacArthur's megachurch, preaching there when MacArthur was away. He shared with us the two major themes of God's Word, God's glory and our joy, and he challenged us with ten convictions and commitments those who study and teach end times prophecy need to adopt. It was an encouraging, upbeat ending to our time together.

Sent an e-mail to Pastor Hadidian (website http://www.theprewrathchart.com/ ) and asked if he had any information on Pastor MacArthur's alleged statement.

Inconclusive. He apologized for the late reply due to vacation and holidays then stated that he was not aware of any MacArthur messages that mention prewrath, but would also like to know if one exists.

They better hurry up and make up their respectives minds or they may be a day late and a dollar short.
People seem far to languid in their approach to this. It seems to me right or wrong that it is time to get on fire.
Better to burn now than burn later.
No speaking disrespectfully, or with contempt, about the President, his Office, or the United States government. We are to respect the authority God places over us. It's OK to disagree. Just do it with respect.

Those who look to liberty to provide anything other than liberty itself are destined to live in slavery.

Men must obtain Truth from the Word of God
