You teach that the Rapture could happen at anytime, since there are no preconditions. I thought the Rapture couldn't take place until the world was ten nations under ten kings? Which is correct?
The Bible teaches that there is no prerequisite for the return of Christ for His Church. The rise of ten kings ruling over the world is a prerequisite for Tribulation, according to Daniel. It is not a prerequisite for the Rapture.
We don’t believe Pastor Armstrong has ever stated that the rise of the ten kings is a requirement prior to the Rapture (since it isn’t), but if he did say this, then he merely misspoke.
