The individuals listed below are Christians (past and present) who are
passionate about their faith. Some are recognized pastors, scholars and teachers of Bible prophecy and eschatology (study of end-times) who also belong to various denominations. Also listed here are those from pseudo-Christian organizations (so-called Christian groups that adhere to doctrines outside mainstream Christianity). This comprehensive list
of individuals is meant to help you identify sound teaching on Bible prophecy and prophecy topics only. Some have devoted their entire lives to teaching Bible prophecy. Not all are always in agreement, and not all are sound in their doctrines. Therefore, study for yourselves, and use this as a guide only.
You will see the terms pre-millennial,
pre-tribulation, post-tribulation and
used here. They are simply this:
The pre-millennial and pre-tribulation views are the most widely held in Bible
prophecy. Pre-millennial is defined as Jesus Christ returning (Second Coming) before his millennial kingdom
ensues on earth. The pre-tribulation view is referring to the rapture of the Church (not the Second Coming) prior
to the start of the tribulation period. These views are the most literal approach to prophecy, and are
sometimes called the futurist view, which claims there will be a literal future 7-year tribulation period
followed by a 1000-year reign of Jesus Christ on earth. As well, the rapture of the Church will precede
the tribulation period, and is a
separate event from the Second Coming of Jesus Christ at the end of the
tribulation period. Additionally, the Church and Israel have distinct and unique
roles in the end-times, thus the events described in the book of Revelation are
still to come. These positions are often attacked by liberal denominations and the cults, while a majority of conservative denominations accept these views of the end-times.
The post-tribulation view blends the rapture and the Second Coming into a single event at the end of the tribulation period.
A majority of self-proclaimed prophets hold to
a post-tribulation rapture view, as do leaders of most pseudo-Christian cults. Many liberal denominations
also accept this view. Most post-tribulationists adhere to a futurist
view, with the exception of Seventh-Day Adventists who generally hold to the historicist
view which contends that Bible prophecy spans the time from the end of the
first century A.D. through the Second Coming of Christ (yet future). In a
nutshell, historicists believe
that the events of Revelation are a symbolic outline of Church history, taking place
over a 2000 year period of time, ending at the Second Coming. Followers of
historicism will often combine both literal and allegorical viewpoints within
preterist view takes the historicist position further. Preterism
contends that most, if not all major prophetic events
have already been fulfilled in history. The term preterist means
"already fulfilled." This view discredits
the biblical importance of Israel and those Christians who
stand with Israel. This is best described as an ecumenical view, which also contends that the book of Revelation was
mostly fulfilled in events leading up to
and including the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. This position is held by
many in Covenant, Reformed and Catholic theologies. They would be
most critical of this website, as they do not usually accept a literal earthly fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
This view is closely tied to dominionism (the idea that society should be
governed by the law of God). There are other variations to this theology, such as the
"partial preterist" which holds the same beliefs as other preterists,
except for last couple of chapters in the book of Revelation, which they suggest
are yet to be fulfilled.
The authors of this website hold to a
pre-tribulation and pre-millennial viewpoint, meaning the Church will be removed
before the tribulation period begins, and the Second Coming of Christ will take
place before His literal 1000-year reign on earth. Though there are many good prophecy teachers, some should be avoided. With that in mind, remember that we are commanded to pray for those whom we take issue with. Please don't confuse this list with those who claim to be prophets or those with prophetic revelations, dreams, visions or other
so-called inspired prophecies. Descriptions in the chart below are solely for the teaching of Bible prophecy and prophecy topics, not for individual ministries or personal lives of those listed.
You might find some listed here who teach sound Bible prophecy, yet support other doctrines you disagree with. Their teachings on other important Bible doctrines should not necessarily be confused with the comments here.
Use the Bible as your guide, just as Paul described the Bereans in Acts 17:11,
"Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they
received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see
whether these things were so." Proverbs 4:7, "Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom.
And in all your getting, get understanding."

Richard F. Ames
presenter of the Living Church of God (LCG) and co-host of "Tomorrow's
World," another so-called end-times TV broadcast and bi-monthly magazine
subscription. He is second in command to the organization's head,
Roderick C. Meredith. He has eccentric
views of Bible prophecy (i.e., LCG followers are "Philadelphians"
and will be protected during the great tribulation for 3 1/2 years), usually
found in his numerous publications or published online at lcg.org. He
has a book about prophecy in the Middle East, and teaches that his church members
should not participate in juries, politics or military service. He
rejects orthodox beliefs of heaven and hell, the Trinity, salvation by grace
alone and the bodily resurrection of Jesus.
Theological Research Institute, he produces and hosts the nationally
televised program "John Ankerberg Show" defending Biblical positions
on topics such as the occult, false religions, sin, prophecy and the end times. His website,
johnankerberg.com, is a ministry tool containing over 1,500 articles in defense of
Biblical stances on currents issues. Holding numerous degrees, he is
also a minister and former pastor. He has authored and co-authored
over 65 books dealing with the end-times, false religions and
the New Age.
Herbert W. Armstrong
of the Worldwide Church of God (WCG). Prior he was a minister in the Church of God Seventh-Day (COG7)
that had splintered from the Seventh-Day Adventist (SDA) church. When his
teachings began to disagree with COG7 doctrine, he started his own
denomination called the Radio Church of God, which became the WCG. The organization produced the
"Plain Truth" magazine and the "World Tomorrow" radio and
TV programs. While his theology was rooted in Seventh-Day Adventism, he
also taught the false doctrine of British-Israelism, later known as "Armstrongism"
which claims the ten "lost" tribes of Israel were actually
Anglo-Saxons. This unbiblical doctrine is not only anti-Semitic, but
wrongly contends that Jews are Israelite imposters. He was the
self-proclaimed "apostle" of the "only true church on
earth," with an emphasis on linking Bible prophecy to contemporary
world events, but with his own twist
(just as SDAs do today). He regularly predicted specific times for the return of
Christ when previous predictions failed. He claimed that he was a
fulfillment of prophecy and that he and his "church" alone were
preaching the truth. More than 30
splinter groups formed after his death.
founder of the Garner Ted Armstrong Evangelistic Association, he was removed
from the Worldwide Church of God by his father Herbert over control issues and
immorality. He then organized the Church
Of God International (COGI)
where he was also removed by leadership for immorality.
He again created a new organization, the Intercontinental Church Of God (ICG)
under the umbrella of the Garner Ted Armstrong Evangelistic Association.
He also hosted the Garner Ted Armstrong television broadcast, and was the
self-proclaimed "Ezekiel Watchman" (main prophetic spokesman for God
on earth). His son, Mark Armstrong,
now heads the ICG, and claims it is the
only "true" church on earth.
of Precepts Ministries International (with her husband Jack) and precept.org, an inductive
Bible study ministry. She has written books for both adults and children
on the study of Bible prophecy. She is a busy conference speaker, radio
and television host, author, teacher and researcher.
Prestigious defender of Seventh-Day
Adventism, host of the popular "Amazing Facts" television program. Also
hosts "Bible Answers Live" radio show. Many of his prophecy teachings
are rejected by mainstream prophecy scholars and teachers. He, and other
Adventists use "bait
and switch" tactics at highly-publicized prophecy seminars (after many hours of prophetic teaching,
participants are eventually told they will receive the "mark of the beast" if
they don't convert to a Seventh-Day Adventist). Many Christians are
duped by this tactic due to their lack of Bible prophecy knowledge.
These "Revelation seminars" promote doctrines that are required
knowledge for membership or baptism in the SDA church. For example,
popular teachings are the "great whore" of Babylon in Revelation 17
& 18 is the
Catholic church, and the "daughters of the whore" are
Protestant Sunday-keeping churches of today. The origins of SDA doctrine
are rooted in date setting, false prophecies and legalism.
Irvin Baxter, Jr.
of the most popular Bible prophecy teachers on radio, he has
unique views of prophecy,
says they are "his" theories, and thus has many good
and bad ideas. He has a correct view on Israel's role in history, and correctly argues against
preterism. He does not believe the book of Revelation is chronological,
which leads him to some fanciful interpretations. For example, he says we are now living in the midst of the sixth trumpet of Revelation 9, and we may soon witness the
annihilation of 2 billion people. The fifth trumpet he claims began in 1991 when Saddam Hussein
(Saddam means "the destroyer") set Kuwaiti oil fields on fire, and ended with
his execution in December 2006. Mainstream scholars
consider that absurd. Even so, he still says the 7-year tribulation period
is yet future. He hosts the popular radio broadcast, "Politics
& Religion," and is founder of Endtime Ministries at endtime.com.
He does not accept the doctrine of the Trinity, and is affiliated with the United Pentecostal Church
which claims its methods are the only
true way to salvation. He also rejects a pre-tribulation rapture based on
Revelation 20:4-6 which he claims is the "first resurrection."
He fails to follow the text which clearly describes this first resurrection as
being for the martyrs of the tribulation period after Christ's Second
Coming. He also believes the two witness of Revelation chapter 11 could
possibly be here on earth now, and mistakenly thought they were to be revealed in Israel during the summer of 2011.
foremost teacher on the theology of the pre-tribulation rapture, he has
written books and articles on the topic. He authors "The Rapture
Solution, Putting the Puzzle Together" at rapturesolution.com where he lists seven reasons why the
rapture cannot come after the tribulation period. He also provides
answers to the false views of pretersim.
director of the Seventh-Day Adventist's "It Is Written"
international television program, his teaching is focused on
"unlocking" the signs of the end-times. As with all
SDA prophecy teaching, his focus is on the books of Daniel and
Revelation. Following the strategies of other popular SDA prophecy
teachers, he also produces a graphical instructional series on
DVD. His production is called "Signs of the Appearing," which
is also sold as a "graduate course," found at unlockthesigns.com.
Great artwork isn't great prophecy teaching.
Seventh-Day Adventist from New Zealand, he uses clever advertising to attract
people for an evening prophecy seminar that is really a week-long
indoctrination. He teaches that Sunday worshippers are the mark of the
beast, and those who attend the complete series will be told that the
Seventh-day Adventist denomination is the "one true church of
Christ." All other denominations are labeled "Babylon" or
the "harlot daughters of Babylon" and called false churches.
Those who attend these meetings will be called to "come out of
Babylon" into the Seventh-Day Adventist denomination.
Late host of "The King is
Coming" program (now hosted by Ed Hindson), was founder of Christian
Destiny, Inc. and World Prophetic Ministry (WPM). Just before his passing,
he also hosted the television program with Tim LaHaye. He was an author,
outstanding speaker, broadcaster, debater and teacher. He was one
of the first Bible prophecy teachers to reveal how secular philosophies
would grow as evil strongholds in schools, businesses, homes, churches
William Marrion Branham
one of the most controversial revival preachers of the 20th century, he was
not only a self-proclaimed prophet, but also claimed special discernment of
Bible prophecy. In early 1963 he preached a set of sermons which he
declared a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy transpired. He later stated
the following events took place over a 7-day period in 1963: Revelation
4, 5, and 10:1-7 were fulfilled; the seven seals of Revelation were opened
(not physically); the times of the Gentiles ended; the opportunity to be saved
by grace ended; and the rapture and the Second Coming of Christ secretly
occurred followed by Christ's image appearing in an Arizona cloud.
Obviously his views were distorted and riddled with errors, yet still today
many accept him as a true prophet of God.
of Ray Brubaker Ministries and "God's News Behind the News" radio

prophetic news and world events for more than five decades, he was known as a
"prophetic statesman." In recent years his ministry
expanded through television, literature, conferences, and the internet at

hour as ye think not, the Son of man cometh!"
of the book "Pray That You May Escape" and director of
LearnBibleProphecy.com, which offers current news and resources related to end-times Bible
prophecy. He explains today's news headlines are often very prophetic and that the signs are
sometimes obvious, such as rumblings in the Middle East (especially with Israel), economic turmoil,
shifts in geopolitical policy, earthquakes, and other signs from heaven. At other times, he notes
the clues are more subtle, yet equally astounding to those who know Bible prophecy. He has done some ground-breaking research focusing on the Olivet Discourse and
has an expository study of what Jesus said about the end-times in
Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21.
President of Family
Radio, he teaches that God has done away with the Church, and he maintains
that the Holy Spirit has left the Church which has no power to proclaim the
gospel. He calls for his followers to flee churches and form fellowships around
his teachings. He claims the Church Age began when the State of Israel
was officially formed in May of 1948, and then the Church Age ended 40 years
later on May 21, 1988. His use of numerology and allegorical interpretations of Bible
prophecy are well known. He is famous for his failed prophecy concerning
the return of Christ in September 6, 1994, and the two failed predictions of the rapture
on May 21 and October 21, 2011, along
with the end of the world. Rather than admitting he was wrong, he stated
the end will come very very quietly. Perhaps his followers should
collectively whisper so they don't miss it. He also claims the two witnesses in Revelation 11:3 are the
Church bodily. Having written over 30 books and booklets, he is the epitome of a heretic and a false prophet.
Produces "The End
Times" prophecy newsletter, and "Prophetic News Alerts" at
both of which contain informative articles on subjects of Bible prophecy and
the rapture. He is a pastor, author, scholar, conference speaker and
member of the Pre-Trib Study Group.
Late hero of the preterist
movement. A liberal reformation theologian, he published articles
and wrote books defending his brand of eschatology and theology. He had once stated
that the book of Revelation was not about the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
One critic wrote, "He is indeed a heretic who has denied the Church's historic
creeds and confessions on the question of the Second Coming of Christ and
the Final Judgment." He was just 46 when he died of a heart attack.
host of "Prophecy in the
News" television program (now hosted by Gary Stearman) focusing on
current prophetic events. He authored and co-authored many books on Bible prophecy, and
his organization continues to publish
"Prophecy in the News" magazine. He was a diligent scholar, and had one of the longest reigns in Christian
television. His very last writing speculated on the possibility of a
rapture on Pentecost. He wrote previously about the Jewish custom of
young Jewish women getting married on a Wednesday at Pentecost.
Recalling Jesus' parable in Matthew 25 about the wise and foolish virgins, he
likened the Jewish bridal custom to the Bridegroom (Jesus Christ, Matt. 9:15)
coming for His bride at the rapture. The ministry offers various publications and prophecy related
resources at prophecyinthenews.com.
well-respected Bible scholar with a scientific background, he is a
sought-after speaker and teacher. He has written specifically on God's
pattern of judgment in Bible prophecy, and is an expert on interpreting
Biblical text for the end-times. He shows that reconstructionists like
Gary DeMar are guilty of interpretive inconsistency, such as declaring days
and years in Genesis to be literal, yet days and years in Revelation as
figurative. He is a professor, researcher, author and conference

eZine containing Bible studies and news headlines. He is a pastor, author, speaker and a teacher of Bible prophecy, typology and related studies.
leading expert on the European Union and the
Bible, he uniquely teaches about the coming Antichrist's religion and compares it to similar doctrines of today.
He is founder of the Internet Bible Institute and President of Congdon Ministries
International at internetbibleinstitute.com.
He began his ministry when he realized in the last 50 years British churches had seen a militant attack upon
premillennialism doctrine and the literal, historical and grammatical Bible (hermeneutic) interpretation.
He observed that as churches turned from a premillennial doctrinal view of prophecy to an
amillennial-covenant position, they lost their sense of purpose and direction.
pastor who has written extensively on the end-times. He claims to understand
what the Bible really says about the future and the rapture. He's an
outspoken "partial preterist" who claims most Bible prophecy has
already been fulfilled, though Jesus Christ is yet to return. Like most
preterists, he incorrectly claims the origins of the rapture began with 16th
century Jesuit Francisco Ribera "who is the father of the futurist
eschatological system." He considers a literal view of Bible
prophecy as heresy. He also writes against the Left Behind teachings of
Tim LaHaye and similar eschatology at andrewcorbett.net.
Has written extensively against
the preterist and post-trib rapture positions; is an intelligent speaker on prophecy topics.
He is founder and past president of Tyndale Theological Seminary. He has

the Christian Biblical Church of God (CBCG) in 1983 after he broke off from
the Worldwide Church of God (WCG) in 1979. He claims that his
organization teaches directly from the Scriptures, not from traditions of men,
and restores original Christianity for today. He speaks regularly on
end-times events, teaches from the traditions of Seventh-Day Adventists
(Sabbath-keeping), and claims the Jews in Israel today are not the same as the
Jews described in the Bible. He has studied Greek for many years,
eventually producing his own translation of the New Testament in 2007, then
publishing the "Second Edition of The Holy Bible In Its Original
Order" in 2009. He is working on a similar version for the Old
Testament. Apparently the present order, inspired by the Holy Spirit, is
not quite right. He also claims the Trinity is a false doctrine, all
found at cbcgindianapolis.org.
academic training in Greek, Hebrew, theology, philosophy and history, he
studies and teaches the Bible from the original languages. He is a
sought after Bible prophecy teacher and speaker both in the United States and
overseas. He speaks regularly at prophecy conferences, and is director
of deanbible.org offering seminar courses and various media downloads.
preterist and historian, he has published
several books. He has difficulty with anything labeled
"end-times" which he calls "madness" in one of his books,
and thus is a sincere prophecy teacher sincerely wrong. He has had debates with scholars like Dr. Tommy
Ice. On a positive note, he is an excellent speaker on religion in
government and politics, and is a great defender of the faith. He is editor of Biblical Worldview magazine,
and president of American Vision at americanvision.org.
of the non-profit organization Study-Grow-Know Ministries at studygrowknow.com
and studygrowknowblog.com. He believes the Bible teaches a pre-prib
rapture and a full seven-year tribulation period, ending with the physical
return of Jesus, who will - after judging the nations - set up His millennial
kingdom. A prolific author, he has written over 30 books on a variety of
theological topics, including many on aspects of eschatology. He speaks
at conferences and has various radio programs in parts of the United States
and the Philippines. He has also been an expert guest on Prophecy in the

Zion." He correctly theorizes that America is risking God's wrath
by not supporting God's mandate that Israel have full control of Jerusalem,
the West Bank and Gaza, and that many of America's problems, including 9/11,
are evidence of God's fury that America doesn't fully support Israel. He

popular television evangelist and Bible teacher, he teaches extensively on Bible prophecy, particularly on
Daniel and Revelation, and he claims that Jesus never gave any hint to the
rapture because His earthly ministry was directed solely to the Jew under the
Law. Thus, the rapture was strictly a Pauline revelation personally from
Jesus Christ, and is found nowhere else in scripture (few scholars would agree
that scripture references to the rapture are found only in the Pauline
epistles). He is self-taught and he believes he knows better than those
who are among the world's finest theologians. A number of Bible teachers are
critical of his teachings outside prophecy. He often teaches without notes,
and can be misunderstood as he is not always
methodical, but says plain sense reading from the Word is the clearest technique
he knows. He provides his "Through the Bible" instruction

General of the Philadelphia Church of God, founded in 1989 on the doctrines of
the late Herbert W. Armstrong. Having served under Armstrong as a
minister in the Worldwide Church of God before sweeping doctrinal changes, he
never wavered. His wacky prophecy teaching continues on "The Key of David"
television broadcast, through the monthly magazine, "The Philadelphia Trumpet," and
via booklets. He claims, "God placed me into the office of a prophet," and "I am intimate with God in a way no one else is
directly." He also states, "In fact, 'king' and 'counselor' apply to the office I hold."
He probably eats manna too.
contends there is not one book of the Bible that does not have some prophetic
aspects to it, though some teachers try to ignore Bible prophecy, focusing only
on Jesus. He correctly suggests that those who commit the error of
believing prophecy is unimportant is easily refuted when considering the book
of Revelation, which is the only book in the Bible that promises a blessing
just for reading it (Revelation 1:3). Because Bible prophecy is history
written in advance, people tend to shy away from teaching the topic. He contends the letters to the seven

as a Canadian Seventh-Day Adventist, she wrote a book on understanding the
four visions of Daniel. She claims her book reveals the simple and
perfect structure of Daniel. She points out that prophetic rules of
interpretation (hermeneutics) are followed very consistently throughout all of
Daniel's four visions, and that hermeneutics are developed from the Bible itself,
useful in any denomination. She believes there are many different
definitions for the rapture, and considers the pre-tribulation rapture a
"wholly unscriptural secret event."

often confusing view of Bible prophecy. He once stated, "If you're familiar
with the Apostles Creed, it simply says Christ is coming again and doesn't
tell us much about it. So that generally was the earliest Church's
description of eschatology." Apparently the apostle John, who wrote
the book of Revelation by authority of Jesus Christ, had no input on the subject?
He is evangelist and founder of Maranatha Evangelistic Ministries
at maranathaevangelisticministries.com, a
Bible-based, pastor-oriented, Christ-centered ministry of faith. His ministry
places a strong emphasis on God's prophetic word, or the teaching and
preaching of our Lord's soon return. He believes in a literal, plain
sense approach to Bible prophecy. He uses modern-day technology and
visuals showing that fulfillment of Bible prophecy is one of the best
evangelistic tools available to the Church today, which serves to convince the
skeptic that the Bible truly is the supernatural Word of God.
After several years teaching at two
Spanish Bible Institutes and a strong desire to help others understand Bible
prophecy, he concluded events in the book of Revelation could be best
explained in chronological order. That led to the writing of his book
"Revelation of the Christ" including an online version at revelationofthechrist.com.
He gladly boasts Matthew 6:21, "For where your treasure is, there
your heart will be also."

One of the few ever booted out of the Evangelical
Theological Society because of his use of a liberal Reformed approach to the New
Testament called "redaction criticism." A very smart person who has attempted
to intellectualize the Scriptures and Bible prophecy, but is not consistent. For example,
once being dispensational and pre-tribulational, he turned against the pre-tribulation rapture view,
then developed a new confusing type of post-tribulationism
called "dispensational post-tribulationism." Now that's a mouthful.
John C. Hagee
President of John Hagee Ministries, founder
and pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas which telecasts
his global radio and television ministry. He has authored several books
on Bible prophecy, is an excellent teacher, makes use of large charts when teaching prophecy, and
is a proponent of last-days awareness and the coming rapture. His ministry has given millions
of dollars toward bringing Soviet Jews from the former Soviet Union to
Israel. In recent years Hagee has been falsely accused of supporting
Theology" which says the Jews have their own special covenantal
relationship with God and can therefore be saved by observing the laws of the
Torah. This pluralistic view is unbiblical, and is
the position of many Catholics and non-evangelicals. A
video of him denying that Jesus Christ came to
"be" the Messiah has been taken out of context as he has repeatedly
stated that he steadfastly believes redemption for all men comes through Jesus
Christ alone. However, he has gone overboard with promoting Israel by
associating himself with anyone who would align with his views, including
liberal politicians, Mormons, and those who would otherwise oppose the core of
his prophecy teachings.

well-studied Bible prophecy teacher and lecturer, he is a conference speaker
and author of many articles found at the Canadian
ministry BereanWatchmen and bereanwatchmen.com. He hosts a prophecy
conference in Saskatoon, SK, Canada annually where he offers several
presentations, and has many guest Bible prophecy experts seen on this
list. He also speaks at churches and prophecy conferences throughout the
a focused ministry on the end-times, he has extensively researched and written
that for some time we have been witnessing the return of fallen angels in the
form of aliens. Being a Hebrew scholar and expert on ancient languages,
he suggests Daniel 2:43 predicts that demonic entities
will crossbreed with humans in order to destroy the image of God in the last
days, just as humans were corrupted in the days of Noah described in Genesis
6. He also says that demonic forces are preparing for a counterfeit
rapture event by sending messages through "spirit guides" who
are claiming the earth will soon go through a period of cataclysmic changes,
including a "great evacuation." This deception is meant to prepare
people for a coming sudden disappearance of people that will be accomplished
via thousands of UFOs. He is an author, researcher, lecturer and
conference speaker. He offers more information at douglashamp.com.
Hendrik (Hank) Hanegraaff
Dutch-born host of the popular "Bible Answer
Man" radio broadcast and chairman of the Christian Research Institute International (CRI).
He is an excellent defender of the faith when it comes to cults, evolution
and the New Age. He is also one of the most outspoken critics
of the pre-tribulation rapture, calling it "anti-Semitic" eschatology.
He claims followers of the pre-tribulation rapture have created a "false apocalyptic
Jesus". He is a model preterist who rarely admits it on air, and loves to use big words and deep theological terms when
describing his allegorical positions on prophecy. However, scholars take issue with his
anti-Israel position, and have problems with his eschatology, calling it "strange
theology." For example, he does not believe in a coming tribulation
period, and he states that the Revelation judgments of the seven seals, seven
trumpets and seven vials were all symbolic "warnings" that led to
the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. He is a scholar,
teacher, author and speaker, and has written many books.
Founder and President of
World Ministries International (WMI) and world-ministries.org.
Produces the radio and television program "Warning" which gives
political, religious and economic warnings to the world. He is a
self-proclaimed prophet of God, claims to be 100% accurate (they all do), and says
he has received specific prophecies to more than 30 nations. He states
the Church is in need of the true prophetic voice of God (him) for this last hour, and the life of a prophet (him) is of hardship and
suffering, loneliness and rejection. Another doomsday prophet who
rejects the pre-tribulation rapture, his radio program might as well be named
Founder of Midnight Ministries,
Inc. and midnightministries.com, he wrote a book to correct a majority of Bible prophecy experts on the subject of what he calls the "at-once" (pre-tribulation) rapture.
Entitled "Midnight's Cry," he claims there are plenty of books detailing the rapture or the Second Coming, but only one tells the complete
truth (his, of course). A preview of the book sheds light on his
theology. The book's cover features a prominent picture of Jesus wearing
a thief's mask at night (a reference to Jesus' coming like a thief in the
night in 1 Thess 5, 2 Peter 3, Revelation 16), which misses the point of the
passages: His coming will be unexpected or a sudden surprise to
non-believers. There are more than 50 "thought" questions for readers to ponder, and
he suggests that anyone who believes in a
pre-trib rapture doesn't truly know the Lord.

during the tribulation period. A strong supporter of the pre-tribulation
rapture, he is a conference speaker and radio personality, and host of neph.ie

is sometimes a featured guest on secular radio programs, allowing him to share
Bible prophecy to an often unreachable audience.

toward the more sensational aspects of Christianity, had
written many books, and had produced various materials on Bible prophecy
topics at grantjeffrey.com. He once mistakenly predicted the timing of
the Second Coming from correlating data on recurring cycles of ancient Israel,
but did admit he was wrong. His book, "The Signature of God"
describes how events in Bible prophecy are based on the ancient Jewish lunar-solar calendar composed of
a 360-day year. He was passionate about research and
a personal library of over 7,000 books on prophecy, theology, church history
and biblical archeology. He was host of the television broadcast "Bible Prophecy Revealed,"
and was chairman of Frontier Research Publications, Inc., a
leading publisher of books, tapes and videos. He was a gifted researcher,

Jerry B. Jenkins
vice president for publishing Moody Bible Institute of Chicago, and the former
editor of Moody Magazine, he is the author of more than 160 books, including
the popular Left Behind series which he co-authored with Dr. Tim LaHaye.
He owns Jenkins Entertainment, a filmmaking company, and also owns the Christian Writers
Guild. He is a sought after author and speaker, and is a Christian
of Turning Point radio and television ministries, he teaches on many subjects,
including family, culture, the New Age, and Bible prophecy. A major
point of disagreement with many scholars is his contention that only the Jews
will have the opportunity to be saved during the tribulation period. He is a
pastor, author, teacher, lecturer and highly sought-after conference
speaker. He offers several resources on prophecy and Christian topics at
and head of "The Prophecy Club", and according to RaptureReady.com,
is one of the most
error prone prophetic ministries today, complete with a mix of "charismania,"
sensationalism and speculation replacing Biblical truth. Featured
speakers make bizarre claims and predictions, and some have falsely predicted
the start of the tribulation. Typical for these types of ministries, the
basis is fear-mongering and manipulation, similar to cults. He calls
himself an apostle, and his wife, Leslie, is a prophetess. He is also a self-proclaimed
has produced an anti-rapture book. Not surprising.
of "The Prophetic Scroll", an end-times
ministry that began after years of experience as a journalist and photographer covering
many conflicts and wars. This led him on a journey into Bible prophecy
in the early 1970s, which eventually became an urgent call to bring hope and
salvation to the lost. He states the ministry has a "Jewish
flavor" or better said, an "Abrahamic expression of the Kingdom of
God." He has written extensively on modern-day
issues and their relationship to Bible prophecy, with a focus on being
prepared. He has also created online videos, with much of his writings
included at thepropheticscroll.org.
of Lion and Lamb Ministries (not to be confused with other ministries by the
same name) at lionlamb.net, he gained popularity in the 1990s via the HebRoots
Movement (Torah observant believers) and Stan Johnson's Prophecy Club.
He is like many self-proclaimed prophets who deny the pre-tribulation rapture,
and claims all Christians will suffer under the Antichrist. He is
beholden to the pre-wrath rapture position, suggesting Christians will be
raptured just before the wrath of God and Armageddon ensue. He calls
pre-trib teachers "false prophets" of the final days who mislead the
elect. He states that just teaching the pre-trib rapture position is
enough compelling evidence to indict someone as a false prophet.
Apparently the fact that he has made numerous false prophecies himself matters
not. He claimed that 1993 was the beginning of the tribulation period, that the
abomination of desolation would be set up in 1997, and that Prince Charles of Wales was the
Antichrist. Even so, he has a large following, and many followers have
sold their belongings to join his "Messianic Community" in
Oklahoma. Another dangerous teacher to avoid.
Author, speaker and scholar in his own right,
he has a unique ministry of relating current prophetic events to Biblical
Christianity and occult teachings of the New Age movement. He is
an expert on the coming one world government (during the tribulation period), and while many liken it to
a conspiracy on the fringes of acceptable prophecy teachings, he is rapidly
becoming highly respected, and is certainly correct. He directs Hope For
The World at garykah.org.

service, "World Watch Daily." His mission is to educate, through
truthful, discerning, and frequent commentary, about the significance of
current events affecting Israel and our world either directly or
indirectly. He gives clear understanding to the relationship between
Israel and Bible prophecy. He has written a book which details how
decisions made by the U.S. government regarding Israel can have serious
spiritual implications, short-term and long-term.
No relation to Bill Koenig, he is a writer

period. He founded "The Prophetic Years" website at
He is founder and director of the
Center at pre-trib.org. As the creator and co-writer of the best-selling
"Left Behind" fiction book series about the pre-tribulation rapture
and subsequent tribulation period, he has become a household name in most Christian
homes and many non-Christian homes. He is a pastor, teacher, scholar and
prolific author. Because he has done so much to further interest in
Bible prophecy, he is often personally attacked by other so-called Christians
and self-proclaimed prophets who disagree.
talented screenwriter, he is owner of Cloud Ten Pictures founded in 1996 with
his brother Peter, which produced the award-winning Left Behind movies.
He is credited with helping pioneer the prophetic filmmaking genre with his
brother. He and his brother hosted the 1980s biblical TV series "This Week
In Bible Prophecy," and he produced a number of prophecy films in the
1990s and 2000s, also with his brother. They also produced the first
gospel video-message ever prepared especially for those who will be left
behind after the rapture, a great witnessing tool that included compelling interviews
with several Bible prophecy experts.
been in the business side of Bible prophecy for many years. During the
1980s he and his brother Paul hosted the television program "This Week in Bible
Prophecy," and he eventually authored two books. In the 1990s he moved into movie production. He became president of
Cloud Ten pictures, and along with his brother produced several
end-times films including the movie versions of Tim LaHaye's Left Behind book series.
He was known for relating the general subject of prophecy to the
common person, but since becoming a movie maker, he has watered down or
removed Bible references on screen. Sadly, there are claims he appears to have become
a Hollywood type, having forgotten Jesus' words in Matthew 20:25-28.
He was a gifted teacher
with an engineering background, and nearly every prophecy teacher of today can
claim they obtained their basic prophecy knowledge directly or indirectly from
him. He created amazing Bible prophecy charts in the 1910s which are still used
today. He was insistent on "rightly dividing the Word," and
helped explained Bible dispensations to the common person. His published
works are available at larkinestate.com.
and director of the Canadian ministry BereanWatchmen, he organizes prophecy

Having written more than 40 books on Bible prophecy, he had influenced many
who have studied eschatology. He traveled extensively to Israel, and has
a memorial library in Jerusalem. He was founder of David Allen Lewis Ministries and
During the early 1980s the
New York Times called him the "The Jeremiah of Today," and
accredited him with being the best-selling non-fiction author in the world
during the 1970s (after reporting only half of the books he had actually
sold). He has also been called the father of modern-day Bible prophecy
and remains one of the most well-known names in prophecy. He is also one
of the most verbally attacked prophecy scholars, primarily because he was
falsely accused of claiming there would be a planetary alignment in 1982, then wrongly
accused of predicting the Second Coming in
1988. The 1988 prediction was made by former NASA engineer Edgar C. Whisenant,
who published a booklet titled "88 Reasons Why The Rapture Will Be In
1988". Lindsey is one of the few Christian teachers
that has the guts to speak on television a biblical Christian worldview on
Islam. As a theologian, author and speaker, he is an expert on the Middle East, and has written many books on

offers prophecy related material at hallindsey.org.

Also known as Victor Mordecai, he is a foremost
expert on Islam and world terrorism. He has written books on those
and initially used the alias for security reasons. Though not a
professing Christian, he is an Israeli-American who loves Bible prophecy, and refers to himself as
an "Apocalyptic Jew." He is a journalist, columnist, sought after speaker,
and is founder of "Israel Today Magazine." He is head of the Judeo-Christian
Bible Bloc political party called "Gush Hatanakhi" in Hebrew, a coalition
of Jewish and Christian candidates running for Israel's Knesset. Lipkin is briefed on virtually every area of Israeli/Arab relations, and was a ranking officer for 14 years in the Israeli Army Reserves.

from an entertainment industry family that worked in television production
writing commercials and scripts. He founded a Christian record label and
produced records for contemporary Christian music. He has written books on
Christian music, and after 20 years of studying Bible prophecy, he started
writing prophecy books. He has written dozens of articles, and has a daily Bible prophecy broadcast called "The
Apocalypse Chronicles." He is
the epitome of a pre-trib rapture basher. He blames pre-tribulation rapture theology
as the basis for the present-day "rapture cult" following. He states, "As an individual with the
gift of prophecy, I truly believe the Lord has showed me many things
concerning the 'hows' and 'whys' of the end of the age." Since
1992 he's been regularly predicting the imminent destruction of America.
He recently claimed the opening of the sixth seal in Revelation has occurred, and the sealing of the remnant is
underway (similar to Irvin Baxter's teachings).
highly respected pastor, he has authored and edited dozens of books, including the MacArthur Study
Bible and MacArthur New Testament Commentary Series. He regularly
teaches on Bible prophecy, and is strongly premillennial. He provides
solid proofs for a pre-tribulational rapture of the Church, and is a staunch
supporter of Israel and their promised covenants. He is president of The
Masterís College and Seminary, and hosts the television broadcast and daily radio
program, "Grace to You," downloadable at gty.org. He is often
a featured speaker at prophecy conferences, and is considered one of the most influential
evangelicals of our day.
His claim to fame was
being the very first person to purchase a Disneyland ticket at the age of 22
in July of 1955. He celebrated Disney's 50th anniversary in 2005 with
that honorable mention. He began to vigorously attack the pre-tribulation
rapture in the early 1970s, claiming his historical research showed that a
teenage Scottish girl named Margaret Macdonald came up with the idea in
the 1830. This happened when she was a member of the Catholic Apostolic
Church. While that is historical nonsense, he still says all writings on the pre-tribulation rapture are
full of revisions, cover-ups, altercations, deceptions and confusions. Summed up, it's a conspiracy.
His books, riddled with errors, have
been discredited with lacking historical method. He claims to be the "Pretrib
Rapture Answerman." Being an
has become his life's crusade, and he is said to be
publicly endorsed by numerous Christian leaders including premill, amill,
postmill, preterist, historicist, futurist, midtrib, prewrath, posttrib,
charismatic, dominionist, reformed, orthodox, and independents. That's a
widely traveled road.

President of Power of Prophecy Ministries,
he is a leading conspiracy guru. Very intelligent, he has written
dozens of books, and was an assistant professor of aerospace studies.
His books are full of conspiracy theories, as he attempts to wrap
Bible prophecy around conspiracies in every world event. He blames Jews
for a multitude of the world's problems and government secrecy. Tabloid
prophecy at its finest.
Head of Olive Tree Ministries,

Late founder of the Christian Research Institute
(now headed by Hank Hanegraaff), he was best known for his radio program
"The Bible Answer Man," and his exceptional debunking of cults.
However, he was not supportive of the pre-tribulation
rapture position. Having come from a reformed theology background (post-tribulationist),
his views on the rapture and Bible prophecy, unfortunately, were generally allegorical.

author of the Nephilim trilogy, a fictional book series that sheds the light of
Biblical truth on deceptions such as the occult and UFOs, which he sees as
part of the end-times prophesied in Revelation, Daniel and elsewhere in the
Bible. He is a talented musician and author, founder of lamarzulli.net, and has become a respected
scholar from his research on the Nephilim and the "men of renown" mentioned in Genesis
plus Satan's tactics prior to and during the tribulation period. He
states that there are hundreds of UFO sightings weekly around the world,
pointing to demonic deception on a growing scale, and eventually contributing
to the "falling away" of the Church prior to the rapture. He is a researcher,
author, speaker and lecturer.

He is one of
a few prophecy teachers from the reformed Calvinist viewpoint who correctly
identifies the rapture as pre-tribulational, and is not a preterist. Having
written against replacement theology he teaches on the sovereign grace of God
and His dealings with Israel in Bible prophecy. He also emphasizes the
various forms of the Greek "apostasia" in 2 Thessalonians 2, in both
noun and verb forms, showing how it describes a departure as given in context,
supporting a pre-tribulation rapture. He runs a blog at

14 years as a pastor, he saw that congregations hear very little Bible prophecy.
Because of this, he offers to churches and other groups an opportunity to hear
a series of intense messages, without sensationalism, dealing solely with the
prophetic portion of the Bible and its implications. He speaks at
conferences and on television and radio.
J. Vernon McGee
teacher and radio host of "Thru the Bible," he was known for his
straight talk and no-nonsense approach to the Scriptures. His teaching
style helped to demystify Bible prophecy, and speaking on the final days he
noted the rapture was "the next happening in the program of
God." He differed from many scholars on the nation of Israel as it
exists today. He suggested the Ezekiel 37 prophecy of dry bones would
not be fulfilled until the Second Coming (vs. 26-27); therefore, the present
nation was not the rebirth of Israel. He was a prolific writer, authoring more than 200 books, and
was a scholar, pastor, broadcaster and conference speaker. His radio broadcasts are still
heard throughout the world, and at thruthebible.org.

Founder of Branch of David
ministries at branchofdavid.org and defendproclaimthefaith.org. He
vigorously debates Jews and Muslims in defense of the Gospel, and
publicly defends Israel in light of Bible prophecy. He has written books
that trace the history of the Jewish people in America and how America's
spectacular rise to power was tied to blessing the Jews. He examines
America's integral role in fulfilling God's plan for the rebirth of the
Jewish nation, and details the times when our nation defaulted on this
call. He believes the everlasting promise to bless those who bless
Israel and curse those who curse Israel is still in effect today. He is

prominent Seventh-Day Adventist, considered an "elder," he is
director of "The Voice of Prophecy" radio, Bible school,
evangelistic ministry and vop.com. He was involved with "It Is
Written" telecasts and directed prophecy seminars. He and his four
brothers present gospel music concerts throughout North America and are known
as the Melashenko Family Singers. He calls the pre-tribulation rapture
the "secret rapture," and says the idea is a "real
newcomer" in Christian theology, and doesn't have much of a history or
"pedigree." This is a typical deception taught by Seventh-Day
Adventists. Gospel singer, yes. Prophecy teacher, no.
founded the Global Church of God (GCG) in 1992 which he claimed was the
"true church." He was eventually dismissed over authority
issues, and then established the Living Church of God (LCG) in 1998. He
was one of the first five evangelists ordained in 1952 by Herbert W.
Armstrong. Meredith believes God chose him to "re-establish the
true church" and that his members are the "spiritual heirs of the
original Jerusalem Church of New Testament time." He denies the
doctrine of the Trinity and he follows Armstrong's
prophecy teachings. Members must keep Old Testament laws as part of
their salvation. He co-hosts the TV program "Tomorrow's
World," and publishes a magazine by the same name. Both are used in
recruiting potential members for LCG.
and host of RaptureAlert.com, he maintains an extensive archive of Bible
prophecy article and links, and offers commentary on Prophezine's "This Week in
Bible Prophecy" online which reports on important current prophecy
topics. The website also lists important Bible prophecy conferences and
other related events.
Gifted with a superior
intellect, he is well known in Bible prophecy circles. He is executive director
of Koinonia House, one of the largest publishers of Christian media (khouse.org),
and directs "Steeling the Mind" prophecy conferences annually.
He is a prolific author, teacher, scholar and is host of the Bible
study radio broadcast "66/40" (meaning 66 books and 40 authors of the
Bible). He speaks extensively on Bible prophecy and the end-times at
various conferences annually. He served on the board of directors of over a dozen companies and was chairman and CEO of six of them. He is an honors
graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, and participated in the development top-secret
military systems. He
served on projects for the former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff,
former chief of naval operations and former secretary of the treasury.
pastor of Shepherd's Chapel in Gravette, Arkansas, with over 200 television stations
carrying his teaching program. He claims to have no affiliation with
any religious group or denomination. He denies the doctrine of the
Trinity, denies the existence of hell, and says that 95%
of churches teaching the rapture will accept the Antichrist as savior.
He states that Eve had sexual relations with Satan. He made a false prophecy in the 1970's
when he predicted the Antichrist would appear before 1981. He subscribes
to the false doctrine of Anglo-Israelism (or British-Israelism) which is the
belief that the British, Americans and Canadians are the true
descendants of the so-called lost 10 tribes of ancient Israel. He claims to have a
doctorate, but refuses to publicly state where he earned his degree. He
claims his credentials are his ability to teach God's Word, which means
interpreting verses in light of his pre-conceived ideas. Anyone who
disagrees with him is called a false teacher.
of Summit Ministries at summit.org, he is an author, editor, conference
speaker and ordained minister. He is recognized as an expert on worldview
analysis and the decline of morality and spirituality in Western civilization. He travels worldwide lecturing in high schools,
universities and churches. He has been a guest on numerous national
radio and television programs, and has been a candidate for the U.S.
Congress. He has authored a number of books on understanding the times,
focusing on the 15 to 25 year-old generation.

founded Thy Kingdom Come, Inc., and is widely recognized as a pioneer in
Christian television, teaching Bible prophecy in his 20-year television
ministry. He also founded the Tulsa International Prophecy Conference
and was co-host with Phillip Goodman on the "Prophecy Watch"
television program before his retirement in 2004. He has taken
more than two dozen trips to Israel, Russia and Babylon (Iraq). He has
also authored dozens of booklets on Bible prophecy. He built a reputation as a
scholar, author, conference speaker and respected prophecy teacher.
General of the Restored Church of God (RCG) which he founded after the Global
Church of God (GCG) "disfellowshipped" him. He claims to stand
for "precision of doctrine" and claims to know what the "true
church" is today. Another
offshoot of Herbert Armstrong's Worldwide Church of God, he
is another "founder" of a growing number of so-called "true
churches" in America. He states that the two witnesses of
Revelation will come out of his church, will come under his supervision, and he will train them for their 3½ year mission on earth. He
broadcasts the television program "The World to Come" and offers
"The Real Truth" magazine at thercg.org.
Garrett (Gary) P. Parrish
Reformed thinker and writer, he is a preterist to the core. His
eccentric theology and eschatology are examples of "I think therefore I'm
right" syndrome, and the ailment "I know the truth because I read the
Scriptures correctly." He claims to have "rightly
divided the Word of God," a similar tactic used by Mormons and
Seventh-Day Adventists. He says the pre-tribulation rapture
position is "man-pleasing," and therefore he is a God-pleaser
because he teaches against it.
He tries to disguise his acceptance of preterism (or replacement theology-the Church
replaced Israel) by calling it "expansionist theology." He touts
we are not living in the last days according to Isaiah 9:7 and
Heb. 13:20 which state "the increase of
His government will have no end, and is an everlasting covenant." He
believes the tribes of Israel are no longer with us based on Rev. 1:7 (a verse
about the Second Coming). Thus, later descriptions of the twelve tribes
in Revelation 7 and 14 are meaningless, since Revelation is a past event in
his theology. Apparently those living in Israel today just made up their
nationality. He hosts the radio program "Bible Prophecy
Fulfilled," and directs bibleprophecyfulfilled.org.
Bible scholar and internationally acclaimed author, he is considered a
world-class prophecy teacher, though he is a post-tribulationist. His teaching reaches around the world
through television, radio, books and audio programs. He often teaches on
location in Israel during Jewish festivals and holidays, and states that when
he has to choose between Scripture, church tradition or what's popular,
he always sides with Scripture (a common claim by those who bash the pre-trib
rapture). On a positive note, he is a defender of Christian Zionism,
affirming that God has brought the Jewish people back to Palestine.

he is a former instructor of foreign languages turned Bible prophecy researcher

J. Dwight Pentecost
of Bible Exposition, Emeritus, at Dallas Theological Seminary, one of only two
so honored, he has been an influential voice in evangelical circles. He

His website, according2prophecy.org, is designed to present Bible
prophecy with a simple approach. Having created easy to understand

host, scholar, teacher, pastor and author.
founder of a Bible prophecy news and research organization entitled "Fulfilled
Prophecy" (later became FulfilledProphecy.com) based on his personal
research and interest in the rapidly developing European Union. He
became a proponent of the pre-wrath rapture, a popular yet flawed view.
His daughter and son-in-law now direct the organization, and both are well
educated in systematic theology and apologetics. Sadly, like many who
teach against the pre-tribulation rapture viewpoint, they claim to "challenge
popular teachings about the end times that are not found in
Scripture." We stand corrected.
a staunch defender and debater of the rapture taking place at the end of the
tribulation period. His teachings are similar to those of Irvin Baxter,
applying major events of today to the seals of Revelation. He claims the
first seal of Revelation was opened on September 11, 2001. He says the
Lord told him to write the book, "The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Last
Days," which he claims is one of the best
books ever written on Bible prophecy. He graciously explains how to correctly
handle the Word of Truth at lastdaysmystery.info.

authority on the topic. He has developed a powerful prophecy teaching
ministry, and has traveled to world to preach on these topics. He an author, pastor,
missionary and seminar speaker. He also directs
of Lion and Lamb Ministry (not to be confused with Lamb and Lion Ministries),
he offers extensive teaching on popular Bible prophecy topics, including the
rapture, tribulation period and the book of Revelation. His websites lionandlambministry.com
and lionandlambtv.com offer video teaching as well. He is a lecturer,
minister and prophecy scholar.
of Spirit of Grace Ministries, he is also an assistant
to David Reagan of Lamb & Lion Ministries. He joined that
ministry because it was not based upon speculation or weird claims that cannot
be proven by the Scriptures, but rather on solid Biblical analysis of
prophetic truth and the days in which we live. After many years of
intensive study of the Bible, he felt led to teach on many topics,
including Bible prophecy as a practical application in ministry. He
offers commentary and various media downloads at sogmin.org, and is a
scholar, speaker, author and pastor.
of Moriel Ministries and moriel.org, he teaches that we are certainly in the
last days approaching the return of Christ. He believes that
contemporary events in the Middle East, the moral deterioration of society,
the destruction of the environment, the globalization of the world economy,
the rise of a pseudo-democratic Europe, and above all the apostasy in the
contemporary Church, are all events of prophetic significance eschatologically.
He is a Hebrew-speaking evangelist to the Jews and a Bible teacher elaborating
on the original Judeo-Christian background and hermeneutics of the New
Testament. He is an expert on the nation of Israel and Bible prophecy,
and suggests that the Church will endure at least the first half of the
tribulation period, but is removed as the second half gives way to "The Day of the Lord."
His view is similar to the pre-wrath position on the rapture. He is a scholar, author, speaker and media personality in the
the Preterist Research Institute at eschatology.org, directs bibleprophecy.com,
and is a prominent defender of preterism. He claims Daniel's 70 Weeks
are for the Resurrection, not Israel. He has written a number of books
bashing futurism or any idea that we are living in the last days. He
states the Biblical term "the last days" has nothing to do with our
generation, or the end of time. His opinion is that preterism is the
most solid, logical and scriptural examination of Bible prophecy. He is
a speaker, teacher, debater and author.

studied Muslim eschatology extensively, he makes
the case that the biblical Antichrist is one and the same as the Koran's
He argues we should not be expecting
the Antichrist to emerge from a revived Roman Empire, associated with the
Roman Catholic Church and the European Union. The Antichrist's
empire will consist only of nations that are Islamic.
He derives his conclusions from he says are many scholars' misinterpretation of a
prediction by Daniel to Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar, where Daniel describes the
rise and fall of empires of the future, leading to the end-times.
Western Christians have viewed one of those empires as Rome. He claims
Rome never actually conquered Babylon and was thus disqualified as a
possibility. Rather, it had to be another empire that rose and fell and rose
again that would lead to rule of this "man of sin," described in the
Bible. He says that this empire is the Islamic empire, which did conquer
Babylon and, in fact, rules over it even today. While a number of
prophecy scholars disagree, his research is a worthwhile study. He is an author,
conference speaker, and is founder and director of Joel's Trumpet at
Head of the Church of the Great
God (CGG), another breakaway group that formed as a result the disintegration
of the Worldwide Church of God (WCG) following the death of Herbert
Armstrong. The CGG identifies itself as "non-Trinitarian" and "Sabbath-keeping"
as do other WCG splinter groups. His organization publishes "Forerunner" magazine, and
runs truegospel.org. He focuses on bringing "the true gospel"
to the world as God's divine government is shortly going to be established on
earth. Like all of the WCG splinter organizations, the CGG makes several
claims of having "truth" along with delusional interpretations of
Noted for numerous false predictions, he claims
that God gave him a mission, not to be a religious leader but to be an
educator who would influence the center of our culture "from God's perspective."
Has also claimed that God chose him "to usher in the coming of My Son."
In 1982 and again in 1984 he predicted the tribulation period would begin
in those years. On his 700 Club program he stated, "Anything
coming through man is contaminated to some extent. Therefore, since
the Bible came through man, there must be errors in it. So, we must
never equate the Bible with the perfect Jesus." Scripturally confused,
prophetically baffled, not sound in doctrine.
his ordination in The Way International in the 1970s, he is a doomsday prophet
who denies the deity of Jesus Christ. He also claims Jesus is not "legally obligated" to rapture
Christians before the tribulation period, as the Church is "fully deceived" at this time.
He once predicted that a seventh millennium of earth's existence would begin on
September 11, 1999, initiating "intermediate events" that amounted to a seven year
tribulation. These events were to include the collapse of the world economy,
the appearance of the Antichrist, the establishment of a global government, an
attack on Israel, and more. Though he was wrong, he still claims to be
correct on the end-times. He hosts a television program called "Rood
Awakening" where he is dressed in Middle Eastern garb, wears a long beard, and
sometimes has a staff. A self-proclaimed Messianic preacher, he claims that he
alone teaches accurately and that following him and his teachings are the way out of deception.

12:1-3). He is a seminar speaker, pastor, teacher and host of a Bible

Marvin J. Rosenthal
long-time Bible preacher and teacher, he is one of the most outspoken
proponents of Robert Van Kampen's "pre-wrath" rapture theory which
claims the sixth trumpet signals the Day of the Lord, a complex of events that
includes the rapture. Here the rapture occurs at some point after the
manifestation of the abomination of desolation in the temple (as indicated in
2 Thessalonians). Opponents claim this view is somewhere between a mid- and
post-tribulation rapture, with some calling it
the three-quarters rapture view. He is executive
director of Zion's Hope and founder of The Holy Land Experience,
a living biblical museum in Orlando, Florida. He serves as editor of Zion's
Fire, a monthly magazine claiming to deal with Israel and the Prophetic
Word, found at zionsfire.org and zionshope.org. He is an author of many

throughout his career. He has written several books, and is author
of The Ryrie Study Bible, a popular volume for evangelicals. He is a
powerful Bible prophecy teacher, and is a defender
of dispensational theology. He is a noted theologian, professor and lecturer, and is
invited to speak at several churches and conferences annually.
a strong calling to discern Bible prophecies applicable today, he came to the
inescapable conclusion that the Bible has many unfulfilled prophecies intended
for today's international audience. He also believes prophecy is not
just for the scholarly, but also for every common person. His
challenging book "ISRALESTINE" shows his gift of understanding
ancient Hebrew prophecies, where he presents the coming fulfillment of Psalm
83, setting the stage for the Ezekiel 38 (Gog/Magog) showdown with
Israel. He is an eschatology researcher, speaker, teacher, author and host
of Prophecy Update Radio.

Cyrus I. Scofield
a lecturer, minister, scholar and theologian in the late 1800s and early
1900s. He authored the Scofield Reference Bible, which greatly
influenced several generations of evangelicals and prophecy scholars. His work probably did
more to extend the pre-tribulation rapture view and premillennialism (meaning
Jesus will literally return to the earth before the Millennium begins) than any other.
This accounts for the many attempts to discredit
Scofield's work and personally attack his character (he was known to be rough
around the edges). Apparently his personal flaws did not allow God to
use him, so his critics erroneously contend.
a ministry professional who has worn many hats, including professor,
senior pastor and police chaplain. He has authored a number of books and
publications. The son of a Holocaust survivor, he has also served as a
missionary to the Jews. He was appointed successor at Zola Levitt
Ministries after the death of Zola. He hosts the television program "Zola Levitt Presents"
Zola's widow, Sandra Levitt.
by some as the one of the greatest prophecy scholars who ever lived, he helped
popularize the re-emerging eschatology of dispensational
premillennialism through the late 19th century. He wrote of the
appearance of a personal Antichrist, the restoration of the Jews to Palestine,
the material nature of the new heavens and new earth, and the translation of
the saints (what he called the "deathless rapture"). He argued
a twofold coming of Christ: one for His church (the rapture) and
the Second Coming with His church. His idea of a pre-tribulation
rapture was defined by initial "firstfruits," based on the biblical
principle of rewards that promises some believers a removal prior to the
tribulation, such as the Philadelphia church, but no others. He argued
the Philadelphia church is the only one of seven churches that the Lord
promises a way out of the tribulation through an open door. "I know
your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I
know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not
denied my name." Revelation 3:8.
in Brazil in 1979, he came to the United States in 1998 and eventually became
an ardent student of Bible prophecy. He directs the website, "Bible

current events as they relate to the end time scenario foretold in the
website also contains a number of prophecy related articles and
perspectives. He offers a well-researched article on the pre-tribulation
known in Christian circles as a former PLO terrorist, he became an ardent critic of Islam and supporter of
Israel in the mid-1990s after embracing Christianity. An well spoken intellectual, he offers presentations
at Bible prophecy conferences about the Israeli-Arab conflict, stating that it is
not about geography, but about hatred of Jews. He is a regular guest
expert on radio and television talk shows. He strongly believes (and
claims he can prove) that the Antichrist will
come out of an Islamic regime in the Middle East, not Europe. He is not
clear on the rapture, stating that whether the rapture is pre-tribulational,
mid or post, still the event is irrelevant. Instead he prays for a pre-trib
rapture. He has written books, is a
lecturer, public speaker and advocate for Israel.
Known best for
his founding of the worldwide Calvary Chapel movement at calvarychapel.com which teaches prophecy
topics from the pulpit on a regular basis. During the 1970s he mistakenly taught
the rapture was likely to take place by fall of 1981, based on his interpretation of the parable of the fig tree. He later recanted and now rejects date setting, and he has even condemned other ministers for doing so. He is host of "The Word
for Today" radio program at twft.com, plus on New Year's Eve he gives a prophecy update for
the coming year. He is an author, teacher, scholar, pastor
Foremost critic of
preterism, talented defender
of the literal interpretation of the Bible prophecy. He is a pastor, teacher,
author, broadcaster, and can be heard on Southwest Radio Church's "Watchman on the
Wall" broadcast, including webcasts on swrc.com.
an expert on Israel's search for oil, and is one of a few authors to explain
why Russia will likely attack Israel to "capture spoil" as described in
Ezekiel 38. He is founder of True Potential Publishing and tppress.com,
and is an active writer and businessman. His book on the evidence for
oil in Israel was co-authored with this late father, evangelist James Spillman,
also a noted prophecy scholar and author.
brilliant scholar and founder of Ligonier Ministries
and ligonier.org, he is probably best known in prophecy circles for his
support of preterism.
He is a "partial preterist" which claims the events of most of the book of
Revelation occurred during the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D., yet there will be a future bodily return of Jesus Christ. A
difficult, confusing model of Bible prophecy, few scholars accept this form of
eschatology which has roots in liberal covenant and reformation theology.
He, along with other scholars, authored the Reformation Study Bible.
He is a professor, pastor, teacher, conference speaker and author. He writes
against the pre-tribulation rapture position.
noted Bible scholar, he has been praised in
several Christian publications for his writing. Moody Monthly noted his book on the
rapture, "Kept from the Hour," stands as "one of the most important
defenses of the pre-tribulation viewpoint," and Left Behind author Dr. Tim LaHaye has said he has worn out
three copies of it. Also a member of the Pre-Trib Research Group, he is
a scholar, theologian, author and teacher.
Host of "Prophecy in the News" television
program, his first solo book was published in 2011, entitled "Time Travelers Of The Bible:
How Hebrew Prophets Shattered The Barriers Of Time-Space". Having
co-authored many books and articles, he is an astute scholar,
teacher and speaker. He also edits "Prophecy In The News" magazine,
a cutting-edge periodical on eschatology, available at prophecyinthenews.com.
Ray C. Stedman
Late pastor and scholar, he is
considered one of the foremost biblical expositors of the twentieth century.
A prolific author, he was considered an authority
on Bible prophecy, having taught extensively on the subject. With a
photographic memory, those close to him noted his humble personality overshadowed
any hint of a remarkable
ardent and faithful supporter of the Jewish people and the State of Israel, he
taught on understanding the relationships between Christians and Jews.
His library can be found at raystedman.org.
Perry Stone, Jr.
A powerful, charismatic prophecy
teacher, he ties Jewish traditions
with current prophetic events. He asserts
the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah) and the traditional Hebrew wedding both
depict the rapture (likely correct). His teachings are sometimes on the
fringe, sometimes confusing, other times challenging to prophecy buffs and scholars alike. He is host of "Manna-fest"
television program, director of Voice of Evangelism ministries, and often
teaches on location in Israel during tours. He publishes "Voice of
Evangelism" magazine and produces other materials on Bible prophecy at
voiceofevangelism.org. He is an author, scholar, pastor, teacher and convicting speaker.
Humble founder of
raptureready.com, he is a speaker, researcher and gifted author. His
website is consistently the most viewed on the world wide web. A strong defender of the pre-tribulation rapture,
he has done
a great deal to bring the topic of the rapture to the internet. He
the rapture index, and has a great list of good and bad apples of Bible prophecy.
He can be seen at many prophecy conferences.
founder of Hilton Sutton World Ministries and hilton-sutton.org,
he was a prolific author, a pastor and an outstanding Bible prophecy teacher.
Considered a champion of Bible prophecy, he was bold, intelligent, often
opinionated, and a gifted teacher. He taught often on the book of
Revelation. He was sought after as a speaker at churches,
Bible colleges and conventions.
Founder of Focus on the Prophecies Ministries, he claims to have seriously studied and combined the books of Daniel and Revelation from which a time chart of events emerged, a chart never seen before.
When he discovered that time periods in the books of Daniel and Revelation merge into a prophetic chart, he later realized the chart fit between Jewish Festivals, which is found at
focusontheprophecies.org. His beliefs are close to a pre-wrath rapture view, but not as commonly taught.
He does not see a mass exodus of the church, but rather the mass resurrection of the saints (since "as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment," Hebrews 9:27).
This event comes at the seventh seal, which in his view, occurs just prior to the destructive vials and trumpets during a very short, but great tribulation period.
This could best be described as a "just-in-time rapture." He authored a book entitled "Appointed Times & Seasons Calendar, Divine Dates of End-Time Disaster & Deliverance" which further explains his eschatology.
He is a former
evangelical turned Catholic who claims to be an ex-fundamentalist and one-time
rapture advocate. He wrote a book for ordinary Catholics looking for
answers about the end-times, which attacks the pre-tribulation rapture.
He believes many unsuspecting Catholics have gotten caught in the
"rapture trap" mostly due to the "Left Behind" book series by Dr. Tim
LaHaye. He claims that many protestants, without adequate religious
training, accept LaHaye's teaching--"hook, line, and rapture."
A student of Bible prophecy will find the Catholic view of prophecy is
generally allegorical (non-literal), so therefore a literal rapture event
would be a foreign concept.
Jack Van Impe
Highly intelligent with many years of teaching prophecy.
He is founder of Jack Van Impe Ministries International, and is listed as "who's who"
amongst intellectuals, is called "The Walking
Bible," and claims to have been honored with doctoral degrees from twelve
leading seminaries and Bible colleges. He is a great defender
of the pre-tribulation rapture view, but has made false predictions over the
years, and has been openly sympathetic to Catholic leaders.
On a positive note, he rigorously defends the Bible against false teachers of
today, and he has memorized much of the Koran to show the numerous problems in
Muslim teachings about Christianity. He has also exposed the questionable
teachings of Rick Warren (emergent church), leading to a departure from
TBN where he refused to compromise his "straight talk" about these
issues. He is host of the television program, "Jack Van Impe Presents" (with wife
Rexella), publishes "Perhaps Today" magazine, is an author, speaker,
and produces various media on prophecy topics at jvim.com.
Robert Van Kampen
Late founder of the Van Kampen
Merrit investment firm, he became exceedingly wealthy and used his money to promote his version of
eschatology. He founded Sola Scriptura, and owned one of the largest private collections of biblical manuscripts
in the world. He claimed to have spent more that 10,000 hours searching
the Bible to make sense of prophecy. He authored three books after
developing the "pre-wrath" theory which says the rapture will take place just
before the battle of Armageddon (almost a post-tribulation rapture
event). The rapture will be part of a complex of events associated with
the Day of the Lord and will occur soon after the opening of the sixth
seal. He claims the position ties together the rapture passages of 1 and
2 Thessalonians with the description of the Lord's coming in Matthew
24. Though he did gain a strong following, a majority of scholars find his work confusing and riddled
Paul Van Noy
not well known, he is a diligent dispensational teacher, conference speaker,
scholar and pastor. Dispensationalism is distinguished by three key
principles: (1) a clear distinction between God's plan for Israel and
God's plan for the Church; (2) a consistent and regular use of a literal
principle of interpretation; and (3) the understanding of the purpose of God
as His own glory rather than the salvation of mankind only. Last days
events go like this: the Rapture → the Tribulation →
Armageddon → the Day of the Lord (Second Coming of Christ with His
Saints) → the Millennium → Last Judgment → Eternity →
New Heaven and New Earth. He developed the Van Noy model of
dispensations and judgments, found at candlelightfellowship.org.
and scholar with more than 50 years of ministry,
he was considered an authority
on Bible prophecy, having taught extensively on the books of Daniel and
Revelation. He authored several books with charts and diagrams, and
was a highly sought Bible conference prophecy teacher, having held over 1,900
Bible prophecy conferences in his lifetime. He was also an
expert on Biblical mathematics and the mathematics of the Torah, including
numbers of the Bible and their meaning. He was also an accomplished artist.

is internationally known as a Bible prophecy expert and speaker. He
regularly hosts prophecy conferences with other Bible prophecy experts (many of whom are listed on this
website). He believes, along with a growing number of prophecy scholars,
that the antichrist will be a Muslim, specifically Assyrian. However,
wrongly claims Prince EL- Hassan bin Talal of
Jordan, who is the 42nd generation direct descendant of the prophet Mohammad,
is the likely future Antichrist. As well, he sometimes zealously bashes those he
disagrees with, but is a solid teacher and energetic speaker. He is an author,
pastor and director of godsnews.com.
Walter J. Veith
a zoologist and scientist who correctly believes the theory of evolution does not provide a plausible explanation of our origins.
Having written a number of books, he found through his Seventh-Day Adventist
faith that Bible prophecy plays a major role in understanding ecological
decline in the world. Along with his research which concentrates on
animal disease transferal to man, he has become an ardent student of prophecy. When we put it all together, it's Seventh-Day Adventism all
wrapped up in a nice package. In typical SDA style, dazzling videos and
lectures can be found on his website at amazingdiscoveries.org.
head of Dallas Theological Seminary, probably one of the most respected Bible
prophecy scholars of the 20th century. He was a prolific author,
teacher, professor and lecturer. He wrote several books on end-times and
prophecy, and was a noted scholar and theologian having influenced many
evangelicals. He is considered perhaps the world's foremost interpreter
of biblical prophecy. He was still studying before passing at 92 years.
Founder of The Pristine
Faith Restoration Society, a group of dedicated Christians "determined to
research and promote the beliefs and practices of pristine Christianity."
He is a well-studied post-tribulationist, and argues for the post-tribulation
rapture position. He is a well-known debater against the pre-tribulation
rapture position (which he calls a "myth"), is an author, and is
head of The Post-Trib Research Center and answersinrevelation.org. With volumes
of information his views are argued well, but scholars contend he must first
discredit scriptures that indicate there will be a pre-tribulation rapture.
That, in turn, discredits his theories which do not hold up under close
scrutiny. On a positive note, he argues against preterism.
minister in the Worldwide Church of God
(WCG), then a minister in the United Church of God (UCG), he now heads the
Church of God - Preparing for the Kingdom of God (PKG). His
church observes the 7th day Sabbath and the seven annual holy days in
Leviticus 23, with a purpose to support, educate, and warn the scattered
Church that was formerly united in the Worldwide Church of God. Several
years ago he declared himself a prophet, and then falsely predicted the end of
the world in 2008. He now claims to be the
pastor of God's Church on earth, and is appointed to be God's final end-time
prophet to the world. He also claims to be one of the two witnesses of
Revelation 11, and that he will be slain in Jerusalem. More of this
utter nonsense can be found at cog-pkg.org and ronaldweinland.com.
author and publisher, he is founder of Charles Wheeling Prophecy
Seminars. He publishes
brochures, books, media, and has an email newsletter
"News From the Desk of Charles Wheeling," containing news headlines and
his views of current prophetic events. He
also produces ProphecyQuest, an online blog. He believes
that the writings of Ellen White, founder of the Seventh-Day
Adventist movement, are for our day because she believed that she was living
in the last days. He also writes against some of the prophetic teachings
of White, creating adversaries amongst fellow Adventists who claim his method
of interpretation is in direct opposition to theirs. He claims that long
established errors have prevented a correct SDA interpretation in prophecy. Modern Bible prophecy scholars contend White was a not
only a false "prophetess,"
but led thousands of Christians into confusion about Bible prophecy and the
Late founder and pastor of Times Square Church in New York, he was best
known for his popular book "The Cross and the Switchblade".
He was also a prominent predictor of end-time events. Sadly, many of his numerous
doomsday predictions never came true, making him a significant false
prophet. Beginning in the 1970s, he consistently wrote about the destruction
of America. Many turned to him for prophetic wisdom, confused
over Bible prophecy vs. prophetic predictions. Wilkerson was known to
avoid Bible prophecy topics, rather suggesting a "pan-rapture"
theology, meaning "if we trust in Jesus, it will all pan out."
prolific author, his books and outlines present Bible knowledge in layman's
language, making them easy to read and comprehend. He has written
extensively on Bible prophecy and rapture topics. He has influenced many
leading prophecy scholars of today. He is an educator, professor,
scholar, pastor and Bible lecturer, and has a blog at willmington.blogspot.com.
Author of several books and articles, and contributor
to "Amazing Facts," he is another misguided teacher who focuses on attacking
the pre-tribulation rapture view, even though it is widely accepted by mainstream prophecy
scholars of today. Seventh-Day Adventists believe the rapture takes
place at the end of the tribulation period, common with other fear-based
"escapist" groups that
teach confusing, sometimes bizarre interpretations of prophecy. This has
led him to move to a remote mountainous location in the Pacific Northwest,
where he heads whitehorsemedia.com, another
SDA website focused on their version of Bible prophecy.
author and professor, he was highly
respected for his prophecy knowledge and Biblical acumen, and was one of the
very few Messianic Jews and prophecy scholars who tackled the truth about
UFOs, aliens, fallen angels, demons, Nephilim and their ranks.
Additionally, his scholarly articles pointed to the increasing fascination with
psychics, remote viewers, out of body experiences, astral projections,
abductions, the paranormal, and other occult topics. He was founder of
Chayim Chadashim Ministries, and served on the board of Jewish Voice
Broadcast. A gifted scholar and researcher, he took to heart the reality of Ephesians
is a list of other past and present Bible prophecy scholars, authors, teachers
and pastors. You may recognize some of these names from their ministries
and outreaches. Regarding the topic of Bible prophecy, they have either authored books, written articles and publications,
offered online opinions, or produced various media, websites and the like.
Ultimately, the Lord Jesus is our judge, so
