Video description: The rapture debate involves two opposing positions: pre-trib vs post-trib. This means that some Christians believe that the rapture happens before the Great Tribulation, while others believe that it happens after the Tribulation. Both sides pick verses to argue their position, but in less than a minute, this video will show you just how easy it is to settle the debate, and to determine the timing of the rapture so that you can be prepared for it.
A Voice In The Desert asks ‘Will the rapture occur before or after the great tribulation?’
The pre-trib / mid-trib / post-trib rapture debate is based on the concept of a futuristic 70th week of Daniel, but that is a deception to fool the end times saints. The 70th week of Daniel 9 prophecy foretold when Messiah would appear to carry out His ministry, and when (in the middle of the 70th week) He would confirm the everlasting covenant (that was mentioned in Daniel 9:4) with His blood as the Passover Lamb, to atone for our sins. It’s not about the end times or the antichrist.
Once you understand the fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel 9 by Messiah, you know that the concept of Revelation being fulfilled during a supposed 7-year tribulation period is based on a faulty foundation. That’s why I wrote a book about the 70th week of Daniel 9 before I published a book about Revelation. Sadly, the enemy has deceived many with a false explanation of the 70th week of Daniel 9, which removes a powerful proof of the validity of Scripture and the deity of Messiah.
A Voice In The Desert says that the rapture will take place at the last trumpet.
The seals were about the decline of the Roman Empire from bloody civil wars (red horse), economic strife (black horse), famine, pestilence and death (pale horse). The fifth seal symbolized the blood of the Roman Empire martyrs. The sixth seal points to political upheaval in the Roman Empire, as it’s losing power.
The trumpet judgments were about army after army coming against the Roman Empire from 400-1453 AD, including the Goths, the vandals, Attila and the Huns, the Heruli, the Muslims of Islam who attacked the middle part of the Empire from 612-762 AD, and the Turks who conquered Constantinople in the Eastern Roman Empire in 1453 AD.
The seal and trumpet judgments have nothing to do with the end times. The first five vial judgments have been fulfilled, which proves that the seventh trumpet of Revelation does not point to the rapture.

A Voice In The Desert teaches a futuristic fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel 9, the Olivet Discourse and the prophecies in Revelation.
The 70th week of Daniel 9 is about Messiah’s ministry and His blood sacrifice as the Spotless Lamb to atone for our sins. It has nothing to do with the antichrist or the end times.
The Olivet Discourse foretold the events that would lead to the desolation of Jerusalem, the second temple and the Jewish nation; as punishment for the Jewish leaders continuing in rebellion against the Heavenly Father and for delivering His Son up to be killed. It has nothing to do with the antichrist or the end times.
Most of the prophecies in Revelation have been fulfilled in exacting detail during the last 1,900 years. It describes the historical narrative of the Satan-empowered leaders of the Roman beast kingdom (pagan Emperors > antichrist beast Popes > false prophet Jesuit Superior Generals) fighting against Messiah and His saints.
The explanations of A Voice In The Desert serve to deflect blame away from the enemy in Rome, and to mislead the end-times saints so that they’re not prepared for how the end-times will play out, and don’t know the context of Messiah’s return.
