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 find the terms pre-tribulation, pre-millennial, post-tribulation and preterist used here.  They are simply this:
pre-tribulation and pre-millennial views are the most widely held in Bible prophecy.  The pre-tribulation view is referring to the rapture (removal) of the Church prior to the start of the tribulation period.  The tribulation period lasts 7 years, ending with the Second ComingPre-millennial is defined as Jesus Christ returning (Second Coming) before his millennial kingdom (1,000 year reign) ensues on earth.  

Those views are the most literal approach to Bible prophecy, and are sometimes called the futurist view, which claims there will be a literal future 7-year tribulation period followed by a literal 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.  Such views of are often attacked by liberal denominations and various cults.

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.  A majority of liberal denominations also accept this view.  Many 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 2,000 year period of time, ending at the Second Coming.  Followers of historicism will often combine both allegorical and literal viewpoints within their teachings.  

The 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, such as the "partial preterist" which maintain the same beliefs as other preterists, except for the last couple of chapters of the book of Revelation, which they suggest are yet to be fulfilled.

NOTE:  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 provided in the chart below are derived from teachings and viewpoints on Bible prophecy and prophecy topics, not individual ministries or personal lives.  

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 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."  



Teaches for or claims to believe in the pre-tribulation rapture of the Church, future 7-year tribulation period and literal 1000-year reign of Jesus Christ on earth.  May teach differing viewpoints on other Bible prophecy topics.  Generally sound.


Teaches against or does not believe in the pre-tribulation rapture of the Church.  May teach that the Church will go through some or all of the tribulation period.  May teach there is no rapture.  May view other Bible prophecy events as allegorical (symbolic).  May or may not believe in a literal 7-year tribulation period or a literal 1000-year reign of Jesus Christ on earth.  Use discernment.

Richard F. Ames Television 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.


John Ankerberg  Director of the Ankerberg 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 Late founder 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 impostors.  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. 


Garner Ted Armstrong Late 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).


Mark Armstrong Continuing in the footsteps of his father Garner Ted, he leads behind the scenes as head of the Intercontinental Church of God (ICG), and claims it is the only "true church" on earth.  He regularly travels, speaking at "independent" Church of God (COG) churches, conferences, campaigns and meetings.  The organization continues to promote and sell video, audio and other ministry materials under the name "Garner Ted Armstrong Evangelistic Association" which promotes radical views of end-times prophecy and global destruction.


Kay Arthur Founder 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. 


Steve Ashburn
A brilliant author and researcher, his end-times thesis developed while reading Old Testament prophecies, such as Psalm 83, Isaiah 17, Ezekiel 29 and Ezekiel 38-30.  He realized other prophetic books in the Old Testament describing future battles against Israel all fit within a 40-year timeline.  Perhaps the most current systematic overview of coming prophetic events can be found in his two books, "The Next Nuclear War: Are We on the Edge of the End Times" and "End Times Dawning: Get Ready!" available at endtimesrecord.com.


Benjamin Baruch Having written a number of books on end-times prophecy, he believes the 7-year period described in Daniel is broken up into two parts, with the first part (3½ years) having taken place during Christ's first coming. The final 3½ years will take place in the near future as described in Revelation. America is the White Horse (currently riding). The rapture takes place at the end of the 7 years when we are gathered then return with Him to the new Jerusalem. He predicted America would come to an end in 2018. He also says he has heard the audible voice of the Lord. He claims to be a scribe, not a prophet, and his books are available at benjaminbaruch.net.


Doug Batchelor 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. Late radio Bible prophecy teacher, he had unique views of prophecy, said they were "his" theories, and thus had many good and bad ideas. He had a correct view on Israel's role in history, and correctly argued against preterism. He did not believe the book of Revelation was chronological, which led him to some fanciful interpretations. For example, he believed we were living in the midst of the sixth trumpet of Revelation 9, and we would soon witness the annihilation of 2 billion people. The fifth trumpet he claimed began in 1991 when Saddam Hussein (Saddam means "destroyer") set Kuwaiti oil fields on fire, and ended with his execution in December 2006, yet thought the 7-year tribulation period was in the future. He hosted the popular radio broadcast, "End of the Age" (formerly "Politics & Religion") and was founder & president of Endtime Ministries at endtime.com, where he also published Endtime Magazine. He did not accept the doctrine of the Trinity, and was affiliated with the United Pentecostal Church which claims its methods are the only true way to salvation. He also rejected a pre-tribulation rapture based on Revelation 20:4-6 which he claimed was the "first resurrection." He failed 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 believed 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.
YES Allen Beechick A 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.
NO Marian G. Berry   Late Seventh-Day Adventist author, she proclaimed a "Three Angels Messages" theology (Revelation 14), and she wrote extensively on the books of Daniel and Revelation, but not without controversy within her own camp. According to other SDA prophecy teachers, she directly opposed the Bible by presenting Daniel 12 as a future application, which is not in agreement SDA founder and pioneer Ellen Gould White. Even so, her teachings were riddled with gross misapplication of scripture.  For example, she claimed that the messages of the three angels in Revelation 14:6-12 began shortly before 1844 through William Miller, then concluded with the third angel's message of judgment which coincided with the "Great Disappointment" on October 22, 1844. This proclaimed a true seventh-day Sabbath against a false Sabbath, continuing to this day. She also wrote against the idea of a rapture. Her website endtimepublishing.org contains her writings and teachings.
YES F. Kenton Beshore Late president of the World Bible Society (worldbiblesociety.org), he is nicknamed "Doc" by his contemporaries, having earned several doctorate degrees.  He was very passionate about Israel and teaching eschatology, and has authored several books on Bible prophecy.  He diligently defended the pre-tribulation rapture.  For many years he was a radio broadcaster, reaching millions of people around the world for the gospel.
NO Shawn Boonstra Canadian-born 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.  SDA's major break with mainstream Bible prophecy teachers is that they believe the 1260, 1290 and 1335 future days (described in Daniel 12 as taking place at the last half of the tribulation period) are actually 1260, 1290 and 1335 year segments of the 2,300 year prophecy that William Miller falsely taught terminated in 1844.  Thus, mainstream Bible prophecy teachers who teach that 1260, 1290 and 1335 days are both literal and yet future do not agree with SDA teachings or the Seventh-day Adventist Church.  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.  
NO John Bradshaw  A 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 worshipers are the true expression of the mark of the beast, and thus those who attend his complete prophecy series will be convinced 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 considered false churches.  Those who attend these meetings will be called to "come out of Babylon" into the Seventh-Day Adventist denomination.
NO William Marrion Branham Considered 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.
YES Dave Breese  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 and governments. 
YES Ray Brubaker Late founder of Ray Brubaker Ministries and "God's News Behind the News" radio broadcast in 1947.  Being on the cutting edge of end-times 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 raybrubaker.com.  He was an evangelist, public speaker, broadcaster, preacher and author.  He boldly proclaimed Matthew 24:44, "Be ye ready also for in such an hour as ye think not, the Son of man cometh!"
Ken J. Burge, Sr.
Pastor, teacher and author of Revelation on F.I.R.E. (a two-volume set), excellent books for understanding the book of Revelation in context. He highlights lessons taught in the text to be applied in daily living. Other books he has authored include 1 & 2 Thessalonians on F.I.R.E, Ephesians on F.I.R.E., 1 John on F.I.R.E., and Philemon, Jude, 2 John, and 3 John on F.I.R.E. Having read through the Bible over 60 times in 40 years led him to learn the original languages of the Bible and translating the text from Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. Most recently he has published Devotions on F.I.R.E. (two-volume set) that is a daily devotional and 365-day plan to read through the Bible, a result of discipling 12 men over several years. The acronym F.I.R.E. (Familiarity, Interpretation, Relationship, Employment) was developed as a method for personal study.
YES Jeffrey R. Camino Author 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.
NO Harold Camping Late president of Family Radio, he taught that God had done away with the Church, and he maintained that the Holy Spirit had left the Church which had no power to proclaim the gospel.  He called for his followers to flee churches and form fellowships around his teachings.  He claimed 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 were well known.  He was famous for his failed prophecy concerning the return of Christ in September 6, 1994, and 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 would come very very quietly.  He also claimed the two witnesses in Revelation 11:3 were the Church bodily.  Having written over 30 books and booklets, he was the epitome of a heretic and a false prophet.
YES Joseph Chambers Produces "The End Times" prophecy newsletter, and "Prophetic News Alerts" at pawcreek.org, 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.
NO David Chilton 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.
YES J.R. Church  Late 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. 
YES Kevin Clarkson Host of "Prophecy in the News" television program focusing on the impact of prophecy and why it matters.  He is an avid reader and researcher, and has several guest experts join him on the program to discuss important end-times topics, from the nation of Israel to the tribulation period.  The ministry offers current broadcasts at prophecyinthenews.com, and publishes "Prophecy in the News" magazine. 
YES Charles Clough A 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 speaker.
YES Larry W. Cockerham Founder of Prophecy Forum Website Ministries at prophecyforum.com, he is also editor of Prophecy Forum Newsletter, a monthly eZine containing Bible studies and news headlines.  He is a pastor, author, speaker and a teacher of Bible prophecy, typology and related studies.
YES Robert Congdon A 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.
YES Terry L. Cook He is an expert on end-times geopolitical events, biometric identification technology, including smart cards, biochip transponder implants and radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology.  He has authored several books on topics related to the coming kingdom of the Antichrist.  Recently he co-authored a book with Tom Horn, entitled "Beast Tech:  Is the Mark of the New World Order Secretly Under Development?" which is focused on methods currently being developed for verifying and tracking inventory and people, leading to the fulfillment of Revelation 13:16-17.
NO Andrew Corbett Australian 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.
YES Mal Couch Late writer who argued extensively against the preterist and post-trib rapture positions, he was an intelligent speaker on prophecy topics.  He was founder and past president of Tyndale Theological Seminary.  He authored many books, and had written and produced dozens of television documentaries related to current events and Bible prophecy.  He was a member of the Pre-Trib Study Research Group founded by Thomas Ice and the late Tim LaHaye.
NO Fred R. Coulter Founded 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.
Billy Crone
Info coming soon on this pastor and author.
NO Ronald L. Dart Host of the radio program "Born to Win" and director of "Christian Educational Ministries (CEM)" at borntowin.net, his organization claims to be an "independent, nondenominational ministry."  However, his ministry is affiliated with the Intercontinental Church of God (ICG), and his radio program is prominently featured on so-called Church of God (COG) radio stations across America.  Prior to establishing CEM, he was a minister with ICG.  He does not believe in a pre-tribulational rapture, and he is anti-trinitarian. 
YES Robert L. Dean With 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.
NO Gary DeMar A reformation 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.
YES Fred DeRuvo  Founder 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 News with Gary Stearman.  He is a scholar, researcher, lecturer, author, teacher and conference speaker.
Jimmy DeYoung  Middle East expert, journalist, conference speaker, teacher and founder of Prophecy Today ministries.  He devotes several months of the year to conference ministry, and is host of "Prophecy Today" weekly radio program.  As a part of his ministry, he has written and produced several audio and video materials on Bible prophecy.  Regarding the tribulation period, he believes many will come to Christ, but only those that have not heard the gospel message and rejected it before the rapture of the Church.  If they heard the gospel message before the rapture and rejected it they will not have another chance to accept it as they will be caused to believe a lie (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12).  He also suggests that those who receive the mark of the beast can change their minds, which a majority of scholars would disagree (and Rev. 14:9-10 indicates otherwise).
NO Frank DiMora  Having written the book "The Last Chronicles of Planet Earth," he suggests the last world kingdom will be a revived Islamic Roman Empire.  In short, the kingdom that ushers in the Antichrist will be from the Eastern part of the old Roman Empire which make up the Muslim nations of today.  In his article, "A Thief In The Night - The Rapture" he argues for a pre-wrath rapture (the Church is raptured after the appearance of the Antichrist, and just before events described in Revelation 6).  Calling himself a "watcher" he closely monitors the world scene, and posts the latest prophecy signs at endtimesresearchministry.com and frankdimora.typepad.com.  
NO David Dolan He is a broadcast journalist (formerly Jerusalem-based), and once served as news director at the Voice of Hope radio station in war-torn southern Lebanon.  From Jerusalem he reported for various Christian networks and for the CBS radio network.  Having lived in Israel for more than three decades, he has been near suicide bombings, developed relationships with various Israeli political and military leaders, and has become an expert on Israel and the Middle East.  He has authored and co-authored books on Israel and the end-times.  He states, "the 'pre-tribulation' rapture expectation is frankly not found by me in my personal studies of the Bible, despite having been taught that position at my church before moving to Israel."  He does not believe the book of Daniel foretells a seven-year period of end time upheaval (tribulation period).  Instead, he suggests first half of the prophesied seventieth week of Daniel (9:24) was fulfilled during the three-plus year public ministry of Jesus in Israel, and the second half will be fulfilled at a future date.  He writes articles for many Christian and secular publications, and offers email updates at ddolan.com. 
YES Lambert Dolphin Physicist, instructor, researcher and author.  Has visited Israel dozens of times and has an extensive background in the historical study of Bible prophecy.  States that one of the great, lasting effects of visiting Israel is that any ideas one has that the Bible is myth or legend, and not history, are quickly dispelled.  He publishes his library at ldolphin.org.
Russell Doughten, Jr. Late Christian filmmaker, he made four end-times movies, and he was considered the father of prophecy movies.  During the 1970s and 1980s he produced and directed numerous Christian short films and feature-length movies.
NO Scot A. Dryer He is an international teacher of Bible prophecy, terrorism and the Arab-Israeli conflict.  He has thousands of hours of study devoted to the history of the conflicts in the Middle East from a Biblical perspective, and believes the scriptures point to a Syrian Antichrist and a Persian/Iranian False Prophet.  He wrongly contends the rapture does not occur until the end of the tribulation period, but does correctly argue that Christ will reign a literal 1000 years.  He is an author, speaker and founder of profoundprophecy.com.
YES Daymond Duck An advocate for helping lay people understand prophecy, he is a best-selling author of "easy to understand" prophecy books.  He is a pastor, conference speaker, prophecy expert and defender of the pre-tribulation rapture.
YES Michael D. Evans An evangelist and award-winning syndicated journalist, he has served as a confidant to leaders in the Middle East for more than two decades.  He has appeared on hundreds of network television and radio shows, has won more than fifteen national awards for his prime time specials based on his 31 books and five New York Times Bestsellers.  He has also produced 18 documentaries, many on Bible prophecy.  His mission is "to guard, defend and protect the Jewish people...until the redeemer comes to 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 is founder of jerusalemprayerteam.org and the Jerusalem Report newsletter.
YES John S. Feinberg A professor and department chair of Biblical and Systematic Theology, he is also general editor of Crossway's Foundations of Evangelical Theology series.  He has authored and co-authored several books, and written scholarly papers on Bible prophecy and the rapture.  He explains "who must prove what and how" about the timing of the rapture in 2 Thessalonians 2, and provides clear evidence from Scripture why the pretribulational position best explains the problems and issues students of the Bible sometimes have in those passages.
YES Les Feldick A 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 has suggested that 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 at lesfeldick.org.
YES Gary Fisher Evangelist and founder of Lion of Judah Ministries which circulates a bi-monthly teaching newsletter that tracks current events in relation to Bible prophecy.  The focus of the ministry is to make the soon return of Jesus an unavoidable issue.  He is an author, teacher and speaker, he regularly travels and sponsors trips to Israel, and directs lionofjudahministry.org.
YES Jim Fletcher  Director of Prophecy Matters and prophecymatters.com, his ministry emphasizes the miracle of Israel's modern rebirth where he writes about Israel being the heart of prophecy.  As the former editor for Master Books, the world's largest publisher of creationism books, he now writes for a variety of publications, including the Jerusalem Post, WorldNetDaily, and OneNewsNow.com.  He incorporates his impressions gleaned from numerous trips to Israel, and blogs weekly on the "Israel Watch" section of raptureready.com.


Gerald Flurry Pastor 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.  
YES Michael Ford  He 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 Churches were written to real churches that existed at the time, but also the sequence of the letters is an outline of the general condition of the Church in seven divisions of what we call the Church Age.  He is director of jonsquillministries.org and is an astute scholar, teacher, author and pastor.
NO Charlene Fortsch  Raised as a Seventh-Day Adventist in Canada, 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."
YES Alan Franklin He has been a British journalist since 1964, and recently a chief reporter and editor of a journal serving a quarter of a million readers in southeast England.  He is a Bible prophecy teacher and expert on the cults.  As a British Christian versed in prophecy he could not help but see in the emerging European Superstate as the foundations of a one world government with a one world dictator at its head, the man whose Biblical names include "the Beast," "the man of sin" and "the Antichrist."  He calls this "The New Unholy Roman Empire."  He is an author, teacher, speaker and writer.
YES Gary Frazier Considered one of today's top prophecy scholars with an emphasis on the Middle East, he has traveled to Israel more than 150 times since the early 1970's.  His ministry has taken over 7,000 ministers along with thousands of believers from all over the United States to the Holy Land.  He is founder of Discovery Ministries, Inc.  He is a professor, author and sought-after speaker on the subject of Bible prophecy.  He often speaks on Christian radio and television programs.
YES Arno Froese Editor of Midnight Call, a critically-acclaimed monthly prophecy magazine published in several languages.  His extensive travels to the Middle East have contributed to his keen insight into Bible prophecy from an international perspective.  He has written many books on prophetic topics, including the digital age, the rapture and the Antichrist, including his popular book "119 Most Frequently Asked Questions About Prophecy."  He is an author, speaker, and is executive director of Midnight Call Ministries and midnightcall.com.
YES Arnold Fruchtenbaum A Jewish Christian who has committed many years focused on Bible prophecy from an informed Jewish perspective.  He has written a number of books and scholarly articles, including topics like premillennialism in the Old Testament, and a Messianic Jewish defense of Jesus as Messiah.  He is founder and director of Ariel Ministries and ariel.org which focuses on evangelizing Jews.  He is a speaker, teacher, scholar and author.
YES Mark A. Gabriel He is the author of more than half a dozen books on Islam.  He has been a guest expert and speaker at many prophecy conferences, having a vast knowledge of Islamic history.  He relates today's events to the end-times, and he understands the role Satan plays in today's Muslim extremism.  He is an author, speaker and researcher.
YES Ray Gano Executive Director of Prophezine, he organizes prophecy conferences, performs interviews, and offers prophecy related material at prophezine.com.  He hosts PZ Radio, a podcast offering Bible prophecy and world events commentary.  He provides online responses to breaking news and current events. 
YES Anne T. Garcia Using the name Teresa Garcia for her media broadcasts, she is a well-studied author and speaker.  She has mastered the use of graphs, charts and time-lines backed up with scriptural references to help the everyday person, not the theological scholar, understand Bible prophecy.  She hosts the radio and television program, "Understanding the End of the Age."  She is a pro-Israel speaker, and has been successful in reaching Muslims through her ministry.  She is an author, speaker and teacher, and director of fromthehidden.com. 
NO Kenneth Gentry Developed post-millennial preterism, a newer, 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?
YES Al Gist

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.

NO Peter D. Goodgame He promotes a new-age perspective on end-times events by claiming the Jews are not called back to their homeland now, nor have they been. Rather, he says we are continuing to experience a "New Exodus" of nations out of Babylon. This concept sees present-day Israel as a fraud, ignoring scriptures like Leviticus 26 and Isaiah 60.  His theology is just another twist on the old idea of the Church being "true Israel", leading to anti-Semitism within the body of Christ.  He claims to teach Christ-centered eschatology, not Israel-centered eschatology.  He disagrees with most prophecy scholars on the imminency of the pre-tribulation rapture, as he says it cannot be “imminent” and it is not a “signless” event that could take us by surprise “at any moment”.  He's also developed a newer timeline of Daniel's 70th week to the general sequence of the judgments described by the seven seals, seven trumpets and seven bowls in Revelation. In his book "Red Moon Rising" he teaches the rapture takes place between the seals and first trumpet judgment, which happens before the tribulation period begins. He openly admits and believes that most of the Old Testament is a polytheistic gallimaufry (a shifting pantheon of deities). Confused yet? 
YES Francisco (Frank) Gonzalez

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".

YES Phillip Goodman Former host of "Prophecy Watch" television program, he is an author, teacher and speaker. He is founder of The Spiritual Armor Project prophecy ministry, and produced "Prophecy-In-Pictures," an former internet teaching ministry. He is an excellent teacher of the basics of Bible prophecy.
YES Ron Graff Author, pastor and teacher of Bible prophecy for over 30 years including the subjects of eschatology, technology, Israel and world affairs.  Was a pioneer in the field of educational computer software, producing the first commercially available educational products for microcomputers, starting in 1997.  He is a co-author, and he is also author of "The Prophecy Puzzle," a Windows based electronic book, and offers prophecy insights at "Prophecy Central" on bible-prophecy.com.
YES Erika Grey

Focused on global affairs and Bible prophecy, she is an expert on the European Union (EU) and its relationship to current prophecy topics.  She has written books on the EU and Bible prophecy, and speaks regularly on radio shows across the U.S.  She hosts her weekly radio show "Prophecy Talk" on blogtalkradio, and is a member of the Society of Professional Journalists.  Her books, blogs, articles and radio broadcasts can be found at erikagrey.com and bibleprophecyupdates.com.  She is an author, prophecy expert, teacher, blogger and broadcaster.

YES Geoffrey Grider Founded "Now The End Begins" global news website at nowtheendbegins.com describing the seriousness of the times in which we live.  The site includes cutting-edge original reporting on end-times topics, from current events to the pre-tribulation rapture.  He is a blogger, broadcaster, teacher and writer.
NO Robert Gundry 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 senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas which telecasts his global radio and television ministry.  He is also CEO of his non-profit corporation, Global Evangelism Television.  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 had been falsely accused of supporting "Dual Covenant Theology" which says the Jews have their own special covenant 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.  His ministry can be found at jhm.org.
Matthew Hagee The youngest son of John Hagee, he is executive pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas.  Like his father, he has focused on end-times events and Bible prophecy.  He has a best-selling book, "Your Guide to the Apocalypse" plus DVD sermons on prophecy subjects at jhm.org.
YES Wilfred Hahn Having a background as a global economist and strategist, he has written extensively on economics, money, politics and globalization in the end-times.  Topics such as the coming global financial apocalypse, the demise of the dollar, and the reality of no buying or selling under a global dictator can be found in the "Eternal Value Review" at his website eternalvalue.com.  He regularly contributes to Midnight Call magazine, as well as being a respected author and conference speaker.
YES Jeremy R. (J.R.) Hall A 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 year.
NO Douglas Hamp Having 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.  At douglashamp.com he once taught and believed in a pre-tribulation rapture, but now teaches the rapture will be post-trib.  He is an author, researcher, lecturer and conference speaker.
NO 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" and have not "mined the Bible for all its worth." 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, some 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. In his own words, he accepts orthodoxy over evangelicalism, having converted to Eastern Orthodoxy which is steeped in rituals, icons and mysticism. He is a scholar, teacher, author, broadcaster and speaker, and has written many books.

NO Jonathan Hansen 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 "Tribulation."


Robert C. Harris 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 those passages:  Christ's coming will be unexpected or a sudden surprise to non-believers.  There are more than 50 "thought" questions for readers to ponder (which he obviously has the answers to), and he suggests that anyone who believes in a pre-trib rapture doesn't truly know the Lord.  Finally someone has figured it out. 
Kade Hawkins He is an expert on Islamic eschatology in light of Bible prophecy, and is the founder of Prophecy News Watch at prophecynewswatch.com, a website that specializes in Biblical prophecy in the news. He also offers a newsletter on prophetic events happening today. He is the former Canadian Director of Koinonia House Ministries (founded by Chuck & Nancy Missler). 
YES Patrick Heron Late Irish scholar, author and teacher.  Having written fascinating books on the end-times, he was one of the few theologians to discuss the Nephilim (fallen angels described in the Old Testament), and their impact during the tribulation period. A strong supporter of the pre-tribulation rapture, he was a conference speaker and radio personality, and founder of neph.ie and nephilimapocalypse.com. Often he was a featured guest on secular radio programs, allowing him to share Bible prophecy to broad audience.
YES Ed Hindson Former president of World Prophetic Ministry, and host and Bible teacher on the "The King is Coming" telecast. He was a professor, researcher, scholar, theologian, author and conference speaker. He was also the Assistant Chancellor and Dean of the Institute of Biblical Studies at Liberty University in Virginia. He was a prolific writer, and went to great lengths to remind the reader to always distinguish between fact, assumption, and speculation. He was known for his academic excellence and for being a practical teacher and a prominent author.
YES Mark Hitchcock He has earned himself a reputation as one of the most sought-after authorities in Bible prophecy for this present generation. He has written more than a dozen easy-to-read books on topics that clarify Biblical prophecy for the general reader, found at marklhitchcock.com. Often featured as a prophecy expert on secular news programs, he is able to discuss the topic openly to the masses. He is a conference speaker, pastor, author, teacher, scholar and lawyer.
YES David Hocking A pastor and Bible teacher for over 40 years, he is an authority on Bible prophecy.  He has authored over 30 books and hosts the daily radio broadcast "Hope for Today."  Known as a Pro-Israeli, Zionist evangelical Christian, he strongly supports Israel and has authored a number of commentaries on the subject.  He offers a special teaching series on God's plan for Israel at davidhocking.org.  He is a scholar, teacher, pastor and sought after conference speaker.
YES Tom (Thomas) Horn He has extensively researched secret government and military programs for super soldiers, human enhancement and transhumanism genetics.  He suggests these programs have been underway for many years as a means of national defense.  He shows how this technology is really part of the end-times and demonic forces intent on developing a master race of super humans similar to the Nephilim described in Genesis 6.  He supports the idea that the Antichrist will inhabit a genetically altered man. He is best known for SkyWatchTV at skywatchtv.com, and is owner of Defender Publishing. He has been featured on the History channel, and is often a guest speaker on radio and television programs, and at conferences. 
YES Brannon Howse Founder, president and host of Worldview Weekend on radio and Worldview Weekend Hour on television, he is an active voice for a Biblical worldview in these end-times.  He hosts several conferences annually, including live seminars at worldviewweekend.com.  He has written several books, and is a sought after speaker.  He is a gifted teacher, speaker and author.
YES Kenneth Humphries He is an Irish Pastor for Treasured Truth Today Ministries.  As an evangelist, he is in partnership with fellow Irish Pastor Jack Anderson, where they preach the pre-millennial, pre-tribulation coming of the Lord Jesus to the air for His own Redeemed people, and the need for living in the light of the Lord near return.  They are teachers, speakers, and they produce multimedia sermons at treasuredtruthtoday.org.
YES Dave Hunt Late author and co-author of more than 30 books dealing with incursion into Western culture, religion, and the Church itself, including Eastern philosophies, New Age thinking, ecumenism between Catholics and Protestants, and other heretical teachings. He tackled these controversial topics with much vigor.  He was a great Bible prophecy teacher, and believed the Catholic Church is the woman who rides the beast in Revelation 17.  He had numerous speaking engagements worldwide, was a frequent radio and TV talk-show guest, and had engaged in many debates with Catholic apologists.  His organization continues to publish a free monthly newsletter, "The Berean Call."
YES Noah Hutchings Late president, host and aged voice of the Southwest Radio Church broadcast.  A respected author and pastor, he was a long-time prophecy teacher and "Your Watchman on the Wall."  He liked to tackle government conspiracies and fringe topics, and his ministry still broadcasts very compelling radio programs, now headed by Larry Spargimino.  He was publisher of "The Prophetic Observer" magazine, and ministry materials are offered at swrc.com.
YES Thomas (Tommy) Ice He is Executive Director of The Pre-Trib Research Center which he founded with Tim LaHaye to research, teach, and defend the pretribulational rapture and related Bible prophecy doctrines at pre-trib.org.  He is very intelligent and well qualified, having earned his PhD in systematic theology, specializing in eschatology.  He is also an Associate Professor of Systematic Theology at Liberty University and Seminary.  He  has authored and co-authored about 30 books, written hundreds of articles, and is a frequent conference speaker.  A prominent defender of the pre-tribulation rapture, he is a pastor, scholar, theologian and professor.  He speaks and debates at several conferences annually.

Harry A. Ironside He was a Canadian-American Bible scholar, theologian, lecturer, teacher, preacher, pastor, and author in the late 19th- and early 20th centuries.  He published many commentaries and Bible teaching pamphlets, and is well known for his outstanding expository teaching on the book of Revelation (long before the establishment of Israel), still referenced by Bible prophecy students and teachers today.  He also developed an accompanying chart on Revelation that can be found on permanent display at various churches for the instruction of their members.

W. Terry James Has authored more than a dozen books on prophecy, and he is considered an authority on current events related to the end-times.  He is co-founder of raptureready.com, the most popular Bible prophecy website on the internet. Though mostly blind, he has written dozens of articles, speaks at conferences, and is a pastor, teacher and scholar.

Grant R. Jeffrey Late Canadian Bible scholar blessed with an incredible grasp of world events and their relation to prophecy.  He leaned 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 had a personal library of over 7,000 books on prophecy, theology, Church history and biblical archaeology.  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, speaker, teacher and author. 
YES Robert Jeffress He is host of the international television and radio program, Pathway to Victory at ptv.org, and is an author of 17 books.  He is best known for his bold teaching on difficult Bible topics, and defending the faith against cults.  This has resulted in several guest appearances on secular news and television programs on networks like FOX, CNN and ABC.  He offers a comprehensive verse-by-verse, year-long study on the book of Revelation.  The study is a DVD series, entitled "From Here to Eternity".  He is a pastor, speaker, commentator, scholar and author.
YES Jerry B. Jenkins The former 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 film making company, and also owns the Christian Writers Guild.  He is a sought after author and speaker, and is a Christian humorist.
YES David Jeremiah Founder 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 turningpointonline.org.
NO Stan Johnson Founder 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 prophet, and has produced an anti-rapture book.  Not surprising.


Joel Joseph Founder 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.


Monte Judah Founder 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.
YES Gary Kah 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.
YES Jack Kelley Late prolific Christian writer, he devoted much of his time to studying and teaching the Bible, and was a gifted expositor of Bible prophecy.  His up-to-date analysis of global prophetic events still appear in several articles at gracethrufaith.com and internet blogs.  He had led a number of pilgrimages to Israel and Jordan, and wrote a commentary on Revelation 2-3 which is still offered as an eBook.
YES Mike Kestler He is host of "It's Time" radio broadcast, and is president of the Calvary Satellite Network (CSN International) and csnradio.com.  He also hosts and directs the live call-in radio program, "To Every Man an Answer" which answers questions about the Bible, Christian faith, Bible prophecy and related topics.  He is a pastor, speaker, teacher and broadcaster.
YES John (Jack) Kinsella Late publisher and editor of "The Omega Letter" at omegaletter.com, a daily intelligence digest presented from a conservative Christian perspective on Bible prophecy.  He was the former head writer for the television program "This Week In Bible Prophecy," and former editor the magazine with the same name.  He was also editor of "The Hal Lindsey Report" (hallindsey.org) and was a contributing editor of "Christian World Report."  He is the author of more than three dozen video documentaries, and was a respected Bible prophecy commentator. 
YES Bill Koenig White House correspondent, author, expert on Israel, director of Koenig's International News at watch.org and his news 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.
YES Don Koenig No relation to Bill Koenig, he is a writer and author who extensively examines current world events and trends in the Church related to end-times prophecy.  Having spent over four decades of independent study on the Bible and learning from many astute teachers within Christendom, he decided to write about Bible prophecy.  He believes that after the rapture there could be several years before the beginning of the tribulation period.  He is founder of "The Prophetic Years" website at thepropheticyears.com.
YES Tim LaHaye Late founder and director of the Pre-Trib Research 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 became a household name in Christian homes and many non-Christian homes.  He was a pastor, teacher, scholar and prolific author.  Because he had done so much to further interest in Bible prophecy, he was often personally attacked by others in religious circles.
YES Paul Lalonde A 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 film making 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.
YES Peter Lalonde He has 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.
YES Clarence Larkin 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.
YES Zola Levitt Late teacher of Bible prophecy and the Jewish roots of Christianity.  He was a well known Hebrew Christian, Bible theologian and Middle East commentator, and was thoroughly educated in synagogues.  He produced "Zola Levitt Presents" television program, and founded levitt.com, now headed by Myles & Katharine Weiss.  A widely published author, he was an outstanding theologian and lecturer who loved to teach and instruct.
YES David Allen Lewis Late clergyman, author, lecturer and Bible teacher. As a researcher and publisher he was active in national and international circles in promoting the welfare of the Church, Israel and the Jewish people. 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.
YES Hal Lindsey 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 Bible prophecy.  He is host of "The Hal Lindsey Report," a half-hour television news and commentary report, and offers prophecy related material at hallindsey.org.
NO Dennis Avi Lipkin Also known as Victor Mordecai, he is a foremost expert on Middle East conflict, history, politics and religion.  He has written several books on those subjects, 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 speaks several languages, and is an ardent historian.  He is a respected 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.
NO James Lloyd Founder of the prophecy-based Christian media ministry where he has a myriad of internet-based websites, including christianmediadaily.com (Christian Media Communique), christianmediaresearch.com (CMR) and christianmedianetwork.com (CMN). He comes from an entertainment industry family that worked in television production writing commercials and scripts. He is also founder of Christian Media's Television Network (CMRI.tv) where he hosts the Apocalypse Chronicles Broadcast. His streaming radio broadcast is at Christianmedianetwork.com, plus more streaming and additional programs at geomedianetwork.com. He founded a Christian record label and produced records for contemporary Christian music where he produced the first Carman LP. He has written books on Christian music, and after 30 years of studying Bible prophecy, he is now writing prophecy books and numerous articles. He is the epitome of a pre-trib rapture basher. He calls pre-trib rapture teachers "rapture cult" liars. 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 as part of a recurring cycle of the seals, trumpet, and vials, and the sealing of the remnant of Spriitual Israel (which he distinguishes from the Church) which is underway (similar to Irvin Baxter's teachings (though Christian Media preceded Baxter’s public exposition by a number of years, and is non- dispensational. Lloyd’s anti-Rapture views are rooted in his research that claims to have found evidence of the Rapture doctrine in pre-Christian Gnostic writings.
YES John MacArthur A 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 Master’s 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.
NO Dave MacPherson 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 anti-pretribulationist 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.
YES Terry J. Malone Author, teacher, speaker and founder of calvaryprophecy.com.  His website provides Biblical insight into current world events and prophecy updates that keep you informed as to where we are on God's prophetic calendar.  Emphasizes the rapture of the Church and the soon coming seven-year peace treaty with Israel.  Has a chronological timeline that details the events of the tribulation period, millennium, judgments, and eternal state.  Has several free videos that describe the signs leading up to the rapture, events of the tribulation period, and the Antichrist.  Has newly created tribulation period survival section. 
NO Texe Marrs 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.
YES Jan Markell Head of Olive Tree Ministries, Inc., which produces a newsletter internationally titled "Prophetic Views Behind The News."  She has written a number of books, hosts conferences on current issues, and produces a weekly live radio program "Understanding the Times."  She also writes for a prominent websites on current events, culture, the Middle East, Bible prophecy, apologetics, politics, the war on terror and discernment issues.
NO Walter Martin 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, his views on the rapture were post-tribulational; however, he was a futurist and many of his views on Bible prophecy were sound teachings.
Pat Marvenko Smith One of the most recognized Christian artists, she has illustrated many parts of the Bible, including the Book of Revelation from beginning to end, only after realizing that the only way she could do it was with God's guidance. It took constant prayer, extensive research and thousands of hours of hard work.  She heads Revelation Productions and revelationillustrated.com.
YES Lynn A. (L.A.) Marzulli He is 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 6:4, 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 believes we are not appointed to wrath. He is a researcher, author, speaker and lecturer.
Thomas McCall   He has written and co-authored ten books, eight of them with Zola Levitt. He is an expert of Semitic languages, is a researcher, teaches prophecy and archaeology, and is a scholar, theologian, professor and lecturer. 
YES Jim McClarty  He is one of a few prophecy teachers from the reformed Calvinist viewpoint who correctly identifies the raptyeture 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 salvationbygrace.org, and is an author, speaker, teacher and pastor.
YES Don McGee  Founder of Crown & Sickle Ministries (crownandsickle.com), with Bible prophecy is at its core.  After 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.
YES J. Vernon McGee Late 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.
YES Paul McGuire He is professor of Bible prophecy at Kings College and Seminary, is host of the syndicated Paul McGuire Show, and is a regular commentator on Fox News and CNN.  He has authored more than a dozen books, and often speaks at prophecy conferences.  He is an expert on the end-times, with more info at www.paulmcguire.org.
YES John McTernan 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 a chaplain, ministry leader, author and conference speaker.
NO E. Lonnie Melashenko Another 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.
NO Roderick C. Meredith He 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.  
YES Mike Mickey He writes online Bible prophecy articles and offers commentary on Prophezine's "This Week in Bible Prophecy" which reports on important current prophecy topics, and his articles can be found on RaptureReady.com and numerous rapture blogs and forums. He staunchly defends the per-tribulation rapture of the Church.
YES Chuck Missler Late president of Koinonia House (founded with his late wife Nancy), one of the largest publishers of Christian media at khouse.org. Gifted with a superior intellect, he was well known in Bible prophecy circles.  He helped organize "Steeling the Mind" and "Strategic Perspectives" prophecy conferences annually before retiring in 2017.  He was a prolific author, teacher, scholar and can still be heard on the radio broadcast "66/40" (meaning 66 books and 40 authors of the Bible).  He served on the board of directors of over a dozen companies and was chairman and CEO of six of them.  He was 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.  His ministry info can be found at chuckmissler.com.


Bob Mitchell
Founder and director of Shofar Ministries, he is a staunch post-tribulationist and outspoken opponent of the rapture.


Arnold Murray Late pastor of Shepherd's Chapel in Gravette, Arkansas, with over 200 television stations carrying his teaching program.  He claimed to have no affiliation with any religious group or denomination.  He denied the doctrine of the Trinity, denied the existence of hell, and said that 95% of churches teaching the rapture will accept the Antichrist as savior.  He stated 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 subscribed 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 claimed his credentials were his ability to teach God's Word, which means interpreting verses in light of his pre-conceived ideas.  Anyone who disagreed with him was called a false teacher.
YES David Noebel Founder and former president 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.
YES Roger Oakland Founder of Understanding the Times International at understandthetimes.org, he proclaims that the Scriptures are the key to understanding the past, the present and the future.  His gifting is to make difficult Bible subjects understandable.  He is an author, speaker, publisher and Bible prophecy expert.
YES Charles Pack He 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.
NO David C. Pack Pastor 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.
NO Garrett (Gary) P. Parrish A 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.
NO David Pawson Popular British 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.
YES Tony Pearce British founder and editor of Light for the Last Days magazine and lightforthelastdays.co.uk, he is a former instructor of foreign languages turned Bible prophecy researcher and author.  He has written a number of books and articles on the end-times, and is a respected teacher and speaker.   
YES J. Dwight Pentecost Late distinguished professor of Bible Exposition, Emeritus, at Dallas Theological Seminary, one of only two so honored, he was an influential voice in evangelical circles.  He was a respected authority on Bible prophecy, particularly the pre-tribulation rapture, millennium and the Kingdom of God.  Having written 19 books, he was also a highly regarded author, theologian, scholar, teacher, lecturer and pastor.
YES Donald Perkins He is founder and president of According To Prophecy Ministries and an ordained minister. His website  according2prophecy.org is designed to present Bible prophecy with a simple approach.  Having created easy to understand prophecy charts, he is also a staff instructor on Bible prophecy at Immanuel Bible College in San Diego, CA.  He is a respected conference speaker, radio host, scholar, teacher, pastor and author.
NO Herb Peters Late 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. 
NO Richard H. Perry He is 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.
YES Jimmy Phillips He has developed a powerful teaching ministry, and uses his extensive world travels as a backdrop to preach on the end-times.  He believes Bible prophecy is history written in advance, and is an authority on prophecy topics.  He an author, pastor, broadcaster, missionary and seminar speaker.  He produces a television program, and offers internet content at jimmyphillipsprophecy.org.
YES David Picos Director 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.
YES Dennis Pollack Founder 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.
NO Jacob Prasch Director 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 U.K.
NO Don K. Preston  He runs 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.
YES J. Randall Price President of World of the Bible Ministries in San Marcos, which he founded in 1993.  An expert on Biblical archaeology related to Israel, Jerusalem and the Temple Mount in current events and prophecy.  He is a pastor, archaeologist, author, and carries on an extensive writing and conference ministry, speaking all over the United States each year.  Many resources on these subjects are on his website at worldofthebible.com.
Dave Reagan One of the nicest people you'll ever meet, he is a foremost Bible prophecy expert. He is founder of Lamb & Lion Ministries, and former host of the national television program, "Christ in Prophecy." He publishes the monthly magazine "Lamplighter," and offers outstanding resources on Bible prophecy topics at lamblion.com. He is a respected scholar, teacher, author, publisher, broadcaster and captivating conference speaker.
YES Ron Rhodes Founder of Reasoning From the Scriptures Ministries and ronrhodes.com, he has written a number of books, and is a foremost expert on the Gog and Magog war of Ezekiel 38 & 39.  His book, "Northern Storm Rising:  Russia, Iran and the Emerging End-Times Military Coalition Against Israel" is one of the best written on the subject.  He has written extensively on apologetics, cults, world religions, Bible doctrine and Bible prophecy.  He is a pastor, scholar, teacher, speaker and author.
NO Joel Richardson Having studied Muslim eschatology extensively, he makes the case that the biblical Antichrist is one and the same as the Koran's Muslim Mahdi. 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 what 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, though he agrees with a post-tribulation rapture view. He is co-founder with Dalton Thomas of Maranatha, a global fellowship of churches and ministries at maranathaglobal.com. He is an author, researcher, conference speaker, and is founder and director of Joel's Trumpet at joelstrumpet.com.
NO John Ritenbaugh 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 end-times events.
NO Pat Robertson Late founder of The 700 Club and the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN). Noted for numerous false predictions, he claimed 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." He 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 a 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.
NO Michael Rood Noted for 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 since 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.   
YES August Rosado Directs "Today In Bible Prophecy Ministries" and todayinbibleprophecy.org.  He is dedicated to preaching the fundamental truths of end-time Bible prophecy.  The ministry strives for doctrinal purity in defending the pre-tribulation rapture view.  He is pro-Israel and strongly believes in the Jewish people's right to exist in the land God gave to them (Gen 12:1-3).  He is a seminar speaker, pastor, teacher and host of a Bible prophecy discussion radio program.
Joel C. Rosenberg He is a New York Times best-selling novelist, and a sought after media commentator.  He has been a consultant to many business and government leaders, including an assistant to Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu.  A Bible prophecy expert, he is an evangelical Christian from an Orthodox Jewish heritage, and has written a number of end-times novels focusing on militant Islam and Bible prophecy.  He is an author, conference speaker, and founder of the Joshua Fund at joelrosenberg.com.
Marvin J. Rosenthal Late Bible preacher and teacher, he was 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 was somewhere between a mid- and post-tribulation rapture, with some calling it the three-quarters rapture view.  He was executive director of Zion's Hope and founder of The Holy Land Experience, a living biblical museum in Orlando, Florida.  He served 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 was an author of many books.
YES Charles Ryrie Late scholar and highly respected, he served in several capacities throughout his career.  Having written several books, and is author of The Ryrie Study Bible, a popular volume for evangelicals.  He was a powerful Bible prophecy teacher, and defender of dispensational theology.  He was a noted theologian, professor and lecturer, and was invited to speak at several churches and conferences.
YES Bill Salus Having 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.
YES Chris Schang Founder of Rapture Forums at raptureforums.com, a comprehensive website covering topics surrounding the rapture of the Church events of the last days.  He offers an excellent selection of virtual chat, links, and Bible study, along with "The Rapture and End Times Report" focusing on world news and commentary.
YES Cyrus I. Scofield He was 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.
YES Jeffrey Seif He is a ministry professional who has worn many hats, including senior pastor and police chaplain.  He has authored a number of books and publications, is the son of a Holocaust survivor, and has served as a missionary to the Jews.  Formerly a television host with Zola Levitt Ministries, he is a professor on the faculties of the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute, the Messianic Jewish Theological Institute, the Israel College of the Bible, Christ for the Nations Institute, and Kings University. 
YES Joseph A. Seiss Described 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.
YES Renald Showers Known around the world for his Bible prophecy teaching, he is an author and conference speaker with "The Friends of Israel" ministry at foi.org, and "Israel My Glory" magazine.  He states that all views of the rapture, other than the pre-trib viewpoint, have the Church going through at least part of the 70th week, meaning that all other views mix God's 70-weeks program for Israel and Jerusalem together with His program for the Church.  A gap is needed in order for these two aspects of God's program to be harmonized in a non-conflicting manner, a time when Jew and Gentile are united in one body.  He is an author, speaker, scholar and teacher.
NO Walid Shoebat Best 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.
YES Chuck Smith Late founder 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 subsequently rejected date setting, and condemned other ministers for doing so.  He hosted "To Every Man an Answer" and "The Word for Today" radio programs, plus he gave a prophecy update for the coming year on New Year's Eve.  He was an author, teacher, scholar, pastor and speaker.
YES Larry Spargimino Director of Southwest Radio Church, he is a talented defender of the literal interpretation of the Bible prophecy, and a foremost critic of preterism.  He is a pastor, teacher, author and broadcaster. He can be heard on Southwest Radio Church's "Watchman on the Wall" broadcast, including webcasts at swrc.com.
YES Steven Spillman He is 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.  
NO R.C. Sproul Late founder of Ligonier Ministries and ligonier.org, he was probably best known in prophecy circles for his support of preterism.  A brilliant scholar, he was 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 covenant and reformation theology.  He, along with other scholars, authored the Reformation Study Bible.  He was a professor, pastor, teacher, conference speaker and author.  He wrote extensively against the pre-tribulation rapture position. 
YES Barry Stagner Founder and host of "The Truth About God Radio Ministries," he is a Bible prophecy expert and regularly speaks on current world events as they relate to pre-tribulational theology.  He is often a co-host on HisChannel's World News Briefing (network television) with Don Stewart.  He is a pastor, teacher, author, speaker and broadcaster.
YES Gerald B. Stanton A 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 had 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.
YES Gary Stearman Former host of "Prophecy in the News" television program, he currently hosts Prophecy Watchers at prophecywatchers.com. 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 "The Prophecy Watcher" magazine which includes cutting-edge articles from contributing experts.
YES 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 intellect.  An 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.
YES Todd Strandberg Humble founder of raptureready.com, he is a speaker, researcher and gifted author.  His prophecy website is consistently the most viewed on the internet.  A strong defender of the pre-tribulation rapture, he has done a great deal to bring the topic of the rapture to the world wide web.  He maintains the rapture index, and has a great list of good and bad apples of Bible prophecy.  He can be seen at many prophecy conferences.
YES Hilton Sutton Late founder of Hilton Sutton World Ministries, 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.
NO Kevin R. Swift  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.  
NO Paul Thigpen  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), therefore a literal rapture event would be a foreign concept to a majority of Catholics.  This had led some Catholics to confuse the word rapture with rhapsody.  Perhaps trumpets are to blame?
Dalton Thomas
Dalton Thomas is the Founder and President of Frontier Alliance International (FAI), and with Joel Richardson is co-founder of Maranatha, a global fellowship of churches and ministries at maranathaglobal.com also daltonthomas.me Dalton sates in his teachings that the pre-tribulation rapture is a demonic deception and is based on lie that has blinded many evangelicals. He has a video series entitled "The Rapture & Endurance of he Saints where he teaches a central message the scriptures is about endurance, not evacuation of the saints from the tribulation described in Revelation.
YES John Tweedie  Chairman of "Christians for Israel Canada" and host of "The Prophetic Connection" television ministry, he offers streaming broadcasts online at whyisrael.org.  His focus is on Israel's dilemma in the Middle East as a tiny nation that is threatened by enemies on every side.  He teaches that the increasing risk of all-out war engulfing the Middle East would be cause for despair were it not for the fact that the Hebrew prophets have already told us to expect scenarios like we are witnessing.  He is a scholar, teacher, evangelist, speaker and commentator.
YES Jack Van Impe  Late founder of Jack Van Impe Ministries International, and was listed as "who's who" among intellectuals; was called "The Walking Bible," and claimed to have been honored with doctoral degrees from twelve leading seminaries and Bible colleges. He was highly intelligent with many years of teaching prophecy, and was a great defender of the pre-tribulation rapture view, but had made false predictions. On a positive note, he rigorously defended the Bible against false teachers, and he had memorized much of the Koran to show the numerous problems in Muslim teachings about Christianity. He had also exposed the questionable teachings of Rick Warren (emergent church), which lead to his departure from the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) when he refused to compromise his "straight talk" about these issues. He was host of "Jack Van Impe Presents" (with wife Rexella), formerly a television program. He published "Perhaps Today" magazine, was an author, speaker and broadcaster, and produced various media on prophecy topics at jvim.com.
NO 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 with contradictions. 
YES Paul Van Noy A diligent dispensational teacher, he teaches that 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.  He is a pastor, scholar, teacher and conference speaker. 
YES Ed F. Vallowe Late pastor 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.
YES Joe VanKoevering Host of the weekly syndicated television "God's News Behind The News," he 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, television host, pastor and director of godsnews.com.
NO Walter J. Veith He is 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.
YES John F. Walvoord Late 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.
NO Tim Warner 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.
NO Ronald Weinland Former 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.
NO Charles Wheeling An 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 end-times.  
YES John C. Whitcomb Late professor of Old Testament and theology, he was widely recognized as a leading Bible scholar for more than 60 years, and was one of America's most influential theologians and young earth creationists. He was a also a well respected prophecy scholar, author and teacher, having written specifically on the rapture and other prophecy topics at whitcombministries.org. Additionally he was considered a father of the modern creationist movement where he co-authored with Henry M. Morris, "The Genesis Flood" book. He took a clear stand on Biblical creationism, traditional dispensationalism, premillennial eschatology, a pretribulational rapture, presuppositional apologetics, and a literal-historical-grammatical interpretation. He was a scholar, teacher, author and conference speaker.
NO Rick Wiles Founder and radio host of Trunews and trunews.com, he opens his shows with a claim to be the last-days advocate to the Church.  He is strongly anti-rapture and anti-dispensational, and claims the pre-tribulation rapture was an invention of the government meant to deceive the Church.  He stresses the importance of American Christians understanding that they are going to be included in all end-times events.  He claims to be a "watchmen" while pushing his ideas of conspiracy, preparedness, gloom and doom.
NO David Wilkerson 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 a very sincere promoter of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  He was also a prominent predictor of end-time events, some of which came true, yet many others did not.  Though his followers turned to him for prophetic wisdom, several were left confused over his prophetic predictions vs. Bible prophecy.  Beginning in the 1970s, he consistently wrote about the destruction of America.  He was known to believe in a post-tribulation rapture, but generally avoided Bible prophecy subjects. 
YES Harold L. Willmington Late author, his prolific writings included books and outlines that presented Bible knowledge in layman's language, making them easy to read and comprehend. He had written extensively on Bible prophecy and rapture topics. He influenced many leading prophecy scholars of today, and was an educator, professor, scholar, pastor and Bible lecturer. His blog is still viewable at willmington.blogspot.com.
NO Steve Wohlberg 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.
YES Stephen Yulish Late 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 6:12.

Below 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 radio teachings, written online opinions, or produced various media including websites and videos.  Many have wonderful ministries that you may or may not support.  Ultimately, the Lord Jesus is our judge, so please understand this is only a reference.
