    Hal Lindsey’s Pretrib Rapture “Proof”

    Is Hal Lindsey’s proof for a pretrib rapture “100 proof” – that is, 100 percent Biblical?

    In “The Late Great Planet Earth” (p. 143) Lindsey gives his “chief
    reason” for pretrib: “If the Rapture took place at the same time as the
    second coming, there would be no mortals left who would be believers” –
    that is, no believers still alive who could enter the millennium and
    repopulate the earth.
    We don’t know if Lindsey’s amnesia is
    voluntary or involuntary, but earlier (p. 54), while focusing on
    chapters 12 through 14 of Zechariah, Lindsey sees “a remnant of Jews in
    Jerusalem” who are mortals who will become believing mortals at the
    second coming and then become repopulating mortals!
    During the
    same discussion of Zech. 12-14 Lindsey overlooks some of the final
    verses in Zech. 14. They reveal that some of the tribulation survivors
    “of all the nations which came against Jerusalem” will refuse to go
    there “to worship the King, the Lord of hosts.” Here’s what will happen
    to those “heathen” rebels: “upon them shall be no rain.”
    So the
    facts about the repopulating mortals, in unbelieving as well as
    believing ranks, cancel out Lindsey’s “chief reason” for opposing a
    joint rapture/second coming – the ONLY rapture view to be found in
    official theology books and organized churches prior to 1830!

    (See historian Dave MacPherson’s “The Rapture Plot,” the most accurate
    and most highly endorsed book on pretrib rapture history – available by
    calling 800.643.4645. Also Google “Pretrib Rapture Stealth,” “Pretrib
    Rapture Pride,” “Pretrib Rapture Secrecy” and “Pretrib Rapture
    Although Hal Lindsey claims that his “Late Great”
    didn’t set a date for Christ’s return, many of his followers – including
    copycats Bill Maupin (“1981”) and Edgar Whisenant (“1988”) – did view
    Lindsey as a date-setter, and his later book “The 1980s: Countdown to
    Armageddon” (the sort of title that date-setters and their ga-ga
    groupies love) became another fizzle – unless we’re still living in the
    In Old Testament days false prophets were stoned to death. Today they’re just stoned!
