The Question of the "last" trump?
Paul called the sounding of the Rapture trump the "last trump," is this the same as the "seventh" trump in the book of Revelation?
This point is made by mid and post Tribbers to say that the only rapture is either mid or post Tribulation and to confuse pre-Trib. proponents. If the last trump is the seventh trumpet blast in the book of Revelation, then they would be correct to say that the church will go through the Tribulation period or part of it. This argument is sometimes used by both mid and post proponents.
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
- 1 Corinthians 15:52 (KJV)
