Critics of the pretrib rapture position often say that we cannot produce one single passage that teaches our position. I believe that Revelation 3:10 is a verse which answers their challenge. Of course they neglect the fact that they cannot produce one single passage teaching their view either. I believe that Revelation 3:10 is a verse teaching that the church is promised exemption from the seven-year tribulation period, thus supporting the pretrib rapture. In addition, posttribers cannot produce one verse supporting their assumption that the church will enter and pass through the tribulation. We all agree that believers will be numerous throughout this seven-year period of God's wrath, but pretribers believe that they will not be the church. Therefore, the posttrib position is just as much, even more so, a position based upon theological assumptions and arguments as they charge pretribers of being.
