UNDERSTANDING THE BOOK OF REVELATION
Taught by Pastor Carl Gallups (2021-2022)










IMPORTANT: You are urged to listen to this series from the beginning and progress forward, in order. These messages
build on each other with tons of scholarly, historical, and contextual biblical connections and references. If you only
listen to select teachings, you will most likely get lost in the depth of it because you've missed the background material
that came before it. Also, in the second session you will hear Pastor Carl Gallups read a quote from Dr. David Reagan's book "Wrath and Glory." That quote - a stunning admission - comes from pp. 112-113 in that book. You can read the transcript of the quote at the bottom of this page.

Pastor Carl Teaches Revelation from the standpoint of Historic Premillenialism- the ONLY systemic and literal method of the teaching of eschatology (the biblical study of last days events) in the Early Church for the first 300 YEARS. (See Dr. David Reagan's documented confirmation of this fact at the bottom of this page.)

PRE-TRIB Rapture Teaching Was NOT the Teaching of the Early Church.

Dr. David Reagan (adamant pretrib rapture teacher) says:

"The OLDEST VIEWPOINT [about the doctrine of the rapture] is called historic premillennialism (Post Tribulation). It is termed "historic" for two reasons: to differentiate it from modern premillennialism and to indicate that IT WAS THE HISTORIC POSITION OF THE EARLY CHURCH ... This view is based on a LITERAL INTERPRETATION of what the Bible says will happen in the End Times. One of its distinctive features is that it places the Rapture of the Church AT THE END OF the Tribulation, combining it with the Second Coming as one event."

"This is the ONLY SYSTEMATIC VIEW of end-time events that existed during the first 300 years of the Church. ... Justin Martyr, who was born in A.D. 100, went so far in his writings on the subject as to suggest that anyone with a different viewpoint was heretical. Those today who disagree with this view respond to the near unanimity of the early Church Fathers by saying they were simply wrong in their interpretation of the prophetic Scriptures.

"Yet their concept of end-time events should not be dismissed out of hand as crude or primitive, for anyone who has studied the prophetic Scriptures will have to admit that the Church Father's viewpoint presents A PLAIN SENSE SUMMARY of the BIBLE'S TEACHINGS about the end times." (Emphasis in ALL CAPS is ADDED emphasis - and not that of Dr. Reagan.)

From Dr. Reagan's book - WRATH and GLORY pp. 112 and 113

Pastor Carl Says: The fact that Dr. Reagan is such an adamant believer in the pre-trib rapture, makes the above statement of truth - so clearly stated by Dr. Reagan - such a stunning admission of contextual historical fact.

ADDITIONALLY - You might also want to read this interesting and enlightening coversation - video recorded and posted by Richard H. Perry. The video conversation is transcribed at this article.
