Publisher's Summary

The end-times have become the king of the sacred cows for the modern Church. Jonathan fearlessly treads where most leaders will not and asks questions that many thirst to ask but can't articulate. Questions such as, what does the Bible really say about: a secret rapture of the church? A future one-world ruler? A future seven-year tribulation? Are we living in the last days? Welton's answers to these questions are thoroughly argued and scripturally based. Prepare to be stretched and see the Bible through brand-new eyes!

From a released Messianic believer going full throttle now.

What truth about the rapture I thought I knew and I would have died for I now know it is not truth. Shame on me for blindly trusting those I came to Love the keepers of my soul my messianic Rabbi's, teachers and friends in the church.
I went out into the mission fields with my Rabbi Jonathan Cahn author of the doom and gloom book of Harbingers who does love the Lord but came into faith through Hal Linsey's, Late great planet Earth book.
For some reason his eyes are not yet opened to this truth.

Raptureless is a book that every American church should have as a required reading so that we can move our Lords Kingdom forward and not be preoccupied with fear of the so called End Times.
Stop spending money on war like supplies for yourselves and build to the future. Let's get unified in Love to our commandment of go make disciples of Nations. STOP STOCKING UP AND INSTEAD PREACH UP. God loves a cheerful giver praise Jonathan Welton for his courage for the truth.

very convincing

very well written, easy to follow and convincing. He does a very good job of sticking to scripture which is always the best way to exposit any controversial concepts. the biggest thing is that many don't actually do scientific study of scripture to make sure we aren't speaking any fallacy. this doesn't fall into that category. however I disagree with some of the conclusions.

Freedom in the right interpretation of the Word.

Using the scripture to verify the correct faith beliefs are paramount to Kingdom living. Now going forth in the power of God is liberating for I don't feel the condemnation and fatality of my earlier misbelief. If one has a open mind to The Kingdom then victorious living becomes the norm. Thank God for Dr Welton's revealing work.

Excellent truth pulled directly from the Bible

Wonderfully amazing to learn of the documented historical events and their fulfillment of most of the prophecy spoken of in the Bible by both Old Testament prophets, apostles, and Jesus. This book is sure to influence your thinking on how victorious the Kingdom of Heaven really is.

Anything by Jonathan Welton is fabulous!

Reading Raptureless was my first introduction to thinking about the end times differently than the only view of pre, mid or post rapture teachings I had ever heard. This was an eye opener. Jonathan is so good about simplifying deep concepts and making me go, "Oh that makes sense!"
After reading and considering the contents of this book, when reading the Bible, I go, "OH this whole passage actually makes sense now if I consider it from Jonathan Welton's point of view!" And it validates his stance in Raptureless. Please read with an open mind and see what Jesus shows you personally.
