Is it true you're also coming out with the Dallas Theological Seminary version - you know the one that includes the free "cosmic dog-whistle?"

I have this book. And i do like it. I think though that Hank Hanegraaff is right on this.

Did you add a section on William Tapley, Co-Prophet of the End Times; 3rd Eagle of the Apocalypse, in there?

I haven't read this yet, but I'm planning on it.

Have you read Sam Storm's "Kingdom Come"? What are your thoughts?

Dr. Phil needs to write a book on Tapley--after watching his Denver Airport video, its pretty clear that Tapley has deeper problems than I can deal with.


I'm reading it now and preparing a review for Modern Reformation.

Roger or someone, please catch me up, what does Hank H say about this?
July 13, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterpb
A few years ago Hank authored a book containing a self-described promise to expose the "real" meaning of the Book of Revelation by using the entirety of Scripture to unlock some of its symbolism. The problem was that it never really addressed the Old Testament literature in any exhaustive way (that would properly open the door to a reader's understanding of Revelation), but instead came to a rather hasty and unsupported conclusion that John's prophetic work was written prior to the destruction of Jerusalem and that the "numerology" used in Revelation pointed directly to the Roman Emperor Nero.

One would be better off reading something published by authors such as the moderator of this blog or Greg Beale in order to gain a good amillennial understanding of this eschatology. For a more detailed critique of Hank's work, search this blog site.

I think Hank is quite right on the writing of the book of Revelation as it makes sense. and i would suggest the book by Hank called "the Apocalypse Code".

I was basically shown the door of a Calvary Chapel church several years ago, because i do now believe in a pre-trib rapture of the church. the Pastor was very mad at me and was red in the face when he found out. He came up to me in front of people in the church and got in my face. So i told him if i can,t disagree with him on that then don,t expect me to come back. I told him i thought that Hank was right , and he went on and on about Hank never being part of Calvary Chapel.

Oh well life goes on. Been in a desert for years now.

Roger O. - "The Apocalypse Code" is the book by Hank to which I was referring in my response to "PB." Hank made some assumptions in this publication which are not substantiated by more thorough commentators.

You mention that you were kicked out of a Calvary Chapel congregation because you now believe in a "pre-tribulation rapture" of the Church. Please explain how this view is compatible with what Hank wrote (or with what other amillennial commentators have to say), which is that the "rapture" is meant to be understood in figurative terms - the Church going out to meet the Savior when he returns. Or their view that the "tribulation" simply means a time of worsening persecution of the Church, not a period that a special group of believers will escape.

George, I am sorry, I meant to say i don,t believe in a pre-trib rapture of the Church and i have never believed that.

I believe that the Lord Jesus will return at the Last Day, just as He said He would in the book of John. So that is why i hold to a view taught by Hank H. and i think would be something like held by Kim R.

I have had the first printing for years. Can you just send me out the updated chapters :p
July 31, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterTim G

I get that dilemma, so I tried to make sure the "expanded edition" had enough new material to justify a purchase. I hate it when publishers do this and all you get is a new forward, new cover art, and corrected typos.

Just ordered it! Can't wait to receive it, read it (esp. the new chapters), use it even more than the first edition (esp. via the indices). Thanks!!!

FINALLY! An Amillennial book with CHARTS! YAY! I can finally buy a copy! (Us Premil folks just feel more comforted having charts in our books) Thanks for the olive branch!

Charts? In an amillennialism book?

/ Spied this little snippet on the amazing net. Any reaction, anyone? /


Many evangelicals believe that Christ will "rapture" them to heaven years before the second coming and (most importantly) well BEFORE Antichrist and his "tribulation." But Acts 2:34, 35 reveal that Jesus is at the Father's right hand in heaven until He leaves to destroy His earthly foes at the second coming. And Acts 3:21 says that Jesus “must” stay in heaven with the Father "until the times of restitution of all things” which includes, says Scofield, “the restoration of the theocracy under David’s Son” which obviously can’t begin before or during Antichrist’s reign. ("The Rapture Question," by the long time No. 1 pretrib authority John Walvoord, didn't dare to even list, in its scripture index, the above verses! They were also too hot for John Darby - the so-called "father of dispensationalism" - to list in the scripture index in his "Letters"!)
Paul explains the “times and the seasons” (I Thess. 5:1) of the catching up (I Thess. 4:17) as the “day of the Lord” (5:2) which FOLLOWS the posttrib sun/moon darkening (Matt. 24:29; Acts 2:20) WHEN “sudden destruction” (5:3) of the wicked occurs! The "rest" for "all them that believe" is also tied to such destruction in II Thess. 1:6-10! (If the wicked are destroyed before or during the trib, who'd be left alive to serve the Antichrist?) Paul also ties the change-into-immortality “rapture” (I Cor. 15:52) to the end of trib “death” (15:54). (Will death be ended before or during the trib? Of course not! And vs. 54 is also tied to Isa. 25:8 which Scofield views as Israel's posttrib resurrection!) It's amazing that the Olivet Discourse contains the "great commission" for the church but not even a hint of a pretrib rapture for the church!
Many don't know that before 1830 all Christians had always viewed I Thess. 4’s “catching up” as an integral part of the final second coming to earth. In 1830 this "rapture" was stretched forward and turned into an idolized separate coming of Christ. To further strengthen their novel view, which evangelical scholars overwhelmingly rejected throughout the 1800s, pretrib teachers in the early 1900s began to stretch forward the “day of the Lord” (what Darby and Scofield never dared to do) and hook it up with their already-stretched-forward “rapture.” Many leading evangelical scholars still weren’t convinced of pretrib, so pretrib teachers then began teaching that the “falling away” of II Thess. 2:3 is really a pretrib rapture (the same as saying that the “rapture” in 2:3 must happen before the “rapture” ["gathering"] in 2:1 can happen – the height of desperation!). Google "Walvoord Melts Ice" for more on this.
Other Google articles on the 183-year-old pretrib rapture view include “X-Raying Margaret,” "Margaret Macdonald's Rapture Chart," "Pretrib Rapture's Missing Lines," "Edward Irving is Unnerving," "The Unoriginal John Darby," "Catholics Did NOT Invent the Rapture," "The Real Manuel Lacunza," “Thomas Ice (Bloopers),” “Wily Jeffrey,” “The Rapture Index (Mad Theology),” “America’s Pretrib Rapture Traffickers,” “Roots of (Warlike) Christian Zionism,” “Scholars Weigh My Research,” “Pretrib Hypocrisy,” "Appendix F: Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Pretrib Rapture Secrecy," “Deceiving and Being Deceived,” "Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty," "Famous Rapture Watchers," and "Morgan Edwards' Rapture View" – most by the author of the bestselling book “The Rapture Plot” (the most accurate and documented book on pretrib rapture history which is obtainable by calling 800.643.4645).
