Please have mercy on me as the information on this site has not been written with a haughty spirit.

Independent Fundamental Baptist Churches have been blessed of God in many ways as we’ve obeyed the great commission to reach the lost. I believe our movement is the closest to having sound Bible doctrine that is pleasing unto the Lord. However, while we’ve boasted in the law, we’ve ignored and refused to take heed to the very words of the Lord Jesus Christ concerning the end times written in the Bible.

Plainly stated: Almost all Baptists are absolute novices concerning the end times and embrace a convoluted doctrine that is just not scriptural.

After 20 years of believing the popular theory called the pre-tribulation rapture, I’ve accepted the plain teaching of the word of God which is a post-tribulational, pre-wrath return of our Saviour to gather the elect. The coming day of Christ will be a day of redemption for blood-washed, born-again, bible believing Christians. This great and terrible day of the LORD will be a day of vengeance and wailing and wrath to the unbelieving scoffers that abound in these final days.

I’m embarrassed that I did not look into this matter sooner. I trusted my preachers and teachers and assumed they knew more than I did. For years my understanding basically aligned with the John R. Rice commentary on the book of Revelation with heaping doses of other non-baptist authors.

To the pre-trib advocate: Before you dismiss these writings as not trustworthy, I challenge you to prayerfully examine the scriptural evidence that this website will present to you.

Daniel 12:4  But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

2 Thessalonians 2:3  Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
