Jacob Prasch now asserts that the tribulation is not a seven year period after all..  Astonishing!

The End Times Explained ( clearing up confusion ) Jacob Prasch

This is a startling turn-around considering Prasch’s previous messages in which he vociferously teaches the seven year tribulation myth. He has included the phrase Seven Year Tribulation”, in the titles of at least two of his previous messages and has made the assertion in another. This is demonstrably the kind of inconsistency and deliberate confusion we are dealing with where Prasch is concerned:

The Restrainer and Seven Year Tribulation: 
The Great Restrainer and Seven Year Tribulation:
The First 3 1/2 Years of Tribulation:

Prasch: “You can’t prove the great tribulation is the full seven years.. They (the pre-trib camp) have no basis to say that the great tribulation is the full seven years – presupposition, and tribulation equals wrath. ‘Therefore because we are not appointed to wrath we won’t be here because wrath equals tribulation and tribulation is the full seven years.’ Prove it!” (35:00).

The biblical passage in question refers to “tribulation” three times: Matthew 24:92129.
Having differentiated between wrath (orge), and tribulation (thlipsis), Prasch points out that the 70th week of Daniel i.e. the final seven year period of history, is broken down into three periods:
The beginning of sorrows, the great tribulation and the Day of the Lord. 
The wrath is of course applicable to the Day of the Lord, not the tribulation.

In Matthew 24:9 “tribulation” follows “birth pains”, coinciding with betrayal amongst brothers, at, or just after, the mid-point of the “week”. (2 Thessalonians 2:3Revelation 12:17). Noticeably the tribulation is absent during the “beginning of sorrows” (birth pains), which are defined as wars, famines, pestilences and earthquakes:

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. THEN shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. (Matthew 24:7-8).

I thoroughly demolished Prasch’s teaching on the seven year tribulation in July 2017:

So much for clearing up confusion! Having taught so vigorously that the tribulation is a seven year period of time, I wonder that Prasch’s followers are not now thoroughly confused!


  1. Jacob Prasch doesn’t read my material Ryan.. he says doesn’t read “blogs”, he thinks he is above such things. I do not think he simplifies eschatology at all, in fact he has distorted the rapture out of all proportion. I agree with you completely about his manners. Thank you for your comment. God bless you.

  2. Hi – appreciate your articles. I have read a number of Jacob’s books, and have found them extremely enlightening, despite some (seemingly obvious) errors. My issue with JP is not with him attempting to make sense of the most problematic subject known to man (end-times events), it is simply the unfortunate way he responds to other believers pointing out issues with his teachings. If Jacob reads any of your articles (and even if he is reading this comment), then please brother, “in quietness and confidence shall be your strength”, not “in bitterness and castigating…”. Love the man despite these things however as I have learned an incredible amount from his teachings.
