THIS PRESENTATION is about interpretation of biblical prophecy regarding the end of this civilization. It is written primarily for the benefit of educators, clergy and fellow eschatologist, for the purpose of edification and preparation of the masses.
The top three religious groups in the US are Catholics, Baptists and Methodists, comprising about 100 million souls. Of these, Baptists are probably most familiar with an interpretation of biblical end-of-age events. However, due to the History Channel's popularization of the Mayan 2012 long-count calendar end, and the increasing trend in catastrophic natural events, many people are now interested in end of age prophesy. This was proved by the popularity of the "Left Behind Series."
Ironically, the interpretation, made popular by the bestselling "Left Behind Series," classified as "fiction," is definately so when compared to the bible.
This presentation unequivocally identifies and proves the assumptive errors of the predominantly Baptist "Pre-Tribulation Rapture Theory common to most evangelicals" beyond a shadow of a doubt, and presents a correct chronology and understanding of the prophetic events prophesied and soon to take place.
This presentation is in two parts. Part One sets forth the assumptive error of "pre-tribulation rapture theory" and thoroughly argues and abundantly evidences the correct interpretation. Part Two is a totally scriptural, hermeneutical, event sequencing presentation from multiple biblical accounts with texts arranged columnar, with common events arranged laterally across columns, that prove unequivocally the assumed 7-year tribulation with a pre-tribulation rapture and a 3.5 year period of wrath included within the 7 years tribulation conjecture is in error; and proves the correct interpretation, as argued in Part One and substantiated in Part Two, fits no other way when all the pieces are on the table.
The UNIVERSE as imbedded in the minds of the populace until about 1850. Jesus was crucified in 33A.D. for heresy and blasphemy. In 1600 Geordano Bruno was burned at the stake for heresies which included a sun centered universe. Galileo came to the conclusion of a sun centered universe in 1615 and was placed under house arrest by the Vatican for heresy until his death 27 years later in 1642. The church never really admitted its error, but in 1822, Pope Pius VII began allowing books touting heliocentricity to be printed in Rome.

About The Author
Jerry Warrington, the author, was born in Jackson, Mississippi to a Baptist family; dedicated his life to Christ as an adolescent, and wanted to be a preacher. He grew up attending four services on Sunday and one or two on Wednesday night, vacation bible school in summer and Royal Ambassadors (RAs). At RAs he participated in bible memory contests. He also attended adult study courses on prophecy offered by his pastor.
After 6 years in the US Air Force and attending the US Air Force Institute and the U of Maryland, he was awarded a college equivalency by the USAF Institute. Upon separation from the AF he attended the Jackson School of Law, and later did course work at Georgia State University in ancient civilizations and finite math, and studied Humanities as a full time student at Atlanta Baptist College on scholarships from two of Atlanta's largest churches.
Jerry then made a career in banking and finance, retiring in 2006 as a Financial Planner, Registered Investment Advisor Representative, Registered Principal and Certified Professional Consultant (CFP).
Jerry grew up with all the traditional Independent Baptist "right of passage" teachings of: "Kings James only," Dispensationalism, Pre 7-year Tribulation Rapture, etc. and could recite all the relevant scripture. He has been a lifelong student of biblical prophecy, reading all the classic Baptist library volumes on end-time prophecy and as many new books on prophecy that he got his hands on.
In the 1980's he came across When Your Money Fails, by Mary Stewart Relfe, PhD., an excellent book by a great missionary on the prophecy concerning the "mark of the beast," which introduced a whole new time line, and/or sequence, for end-of-age events. He was so aroused at her apparent error that he sat about to draft a biblically documented letter of rebuttal and correction. However, as he researched and contrasted the scripture and interpretations she had set forth, to his amazement, he began to discover gaps and missing hermeneutic scripture in what he had been taught and so thoroughly believed in. So much so, that he was taken aback. This cracked the door of revelation that has continued to enlarge these 30 years hence. This presentation is a result of that light, which is the true light, the light of Christ revealed by the study of the bible itself for one's own self edification. As 1 John 4:1 admonishes, "Beloved, don't believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God."
Now, he understands why so much end-of-age prophecy contains emphatic warnings such as: "Be Careful that no one leads you astray," "Let no one deceive you in any way," "Watch out that you don't get led astray, For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect," as if deception was rampant, because it indeed is.
