Is Mid-Trib a defunct view?

It's mostly Pre-Wrath people I've seen say this.  Chris White and Alan Kurschner.

Mid-Trib is indeed the least popular of the four main views today.  Used to have more supporters, but now it's basically me and 1 or 2 other online bloggers.

But given the tendency for God's people to be unanimously wrong (Replacement Theology was the only view on Israel tolerated between the Bar-Kokhba revolt and the Protestant Reformation), and the desire of people today to over complicate things. It seems fitting that the only view that simply takes Revelation at face value should become the least popular.

The parts of Revelation that actually resemble The Rapture's description (from Matthew 24, and 1 Thessalonians 4), are not at the beginning or the end, but the middle.  Revelation 11 and 14, in the midst of all the coming divine Judgments, between the Trumpets and Bowls of God's Wrath.

Pre-Wrath people want to be viewed as the only in-between theory worth even disputing with.  But I don't care, I shall continue to simply believe that things will play out how reading through Revelation makes it look like things will play out.


  1. you're not alone we believe in a mid trib rapture for many reasons. Rev 12 is the church giving birth to the bride who is harpozed"snatched violently up"i.e. raptured. This manchild is w/out spot or wrinkle etc & is doing the greater works Yeshua said His bride would do. She looks him, talks like him & is no more I but Christ in much more to be said.

    1. That is different from what I believe, but is an interesting take.

      Thank you for sharing.
