Jacob Prasch on the Rapture

Back to eschatology.

I went down some rabbit trails-holes this morning. I have friends who hold to Prasch's position on the rapture. The view is sometimes referred to as "Pre Wrath", "Inter Seal" and "Intra Seal."

In one article he appeals to Lovett (he calls Lovett the father of the system), Treggalis (he means Samuel P. Tregelles) and Gundry. I suspect, however, that his position varies from Van Kampen's etc. One notable difference is his view that the Restrainer is the Holy Spirit, contra the Michael position. Gundry also holds to the Holy Spirit view.

I include the following links largely for my own reference. You can read more HERE and HERE

Our view pre dates Pre Wrath in that Jacob Prasch, like various others, believed the rapture is between 6th & 7th seals etc. prior to the Pre Wrath position  being crystallized by the books of Marvin Rosenthal and Robert Van Kampen.  Our position is documented and explained at length in the Book "Harpazo" (available on Amazon, Kendal [sic], from Moriel etc.). It is nothing more than what was later called Pre Wrath that in common with Pre Trib holds that The Holy Spirit is the Restrainer of 2 Thessalonians chapter 2, and certain other more minor differences to do with the timing of the ministry on the Two Witnesses in Revelation  chapter 11. Intra Seal is a version of Pre Wrath and Pre Wrath has the same primary elements as Intra Seal. The two positions are  in essence not only very  similar or more accurately two variations of the same fundamental position although the Pneumatological differences are marked.
