When Will the Rapture Happen? Many prophecy teachers teach that…

New to this group, but this is definitely worth being a part of it:

When Will the Rapture Happen? Many prophecy teachers teach that the rapture will take place before the tribulation begins. However, the Bible reveals a much different scenario. We will discuss the post-tribulation rapture on today’s edition of End of the Age!

• Every church should begin organizing small home groups in the event people are unable to attend evening services.

• Every church should prepare the names and all information on the elderly members and especially the members who are widows indeed. The local church must care for those who are unable to care for themselves.

•Every church should have two feeding programs: one for the unchurched and one for those of the household of faith who are in serious need. Each member can provide cans of food when attending church, as this can become part of the feeding and care ministry.

•Every church, if possible, needs a special fund to assist any dedicated members who may hit a crisis and need small amounts of financial assistance. Again, this is for those who have been faithful to God and his kingdom in the past.

  1. It’s close to the end of the world and return of Jesus Christ war in Iran and it’s in Daniel in the Bible and others are going to but in in the buissnes of what’s going on between Iran and United States of America and it’s going to get worse

  2. People should be careful about speaking against the man Trump. Trump has the Holy Ghost and if you should speak ill against the Holy Ghost, it will never be forgiven in this life nor in the life to come, saith the LORD.

  3. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18.
    The disciples of Christ who have already died will be resurrected first, and will be joined by those who are still living in Christ. They will all be raised up together in incorruptible bodies to meet Jesus in the air.

    “For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.” 1 Corinthians 15:52-53.

  4. As we speak, false prophets on TBN and DayStar are deceiving millions of believers. (Mat. 24:11) A popular guest speaker on both networks is a member of an antichrist cult called, Oneness (Jesus only). (2 Pet. 2:1)

    This deceiver, Irwin Baxter, teaches only those baptized in the name of Jesus (false), speak in tongues (false), and somehow believe the Son is the Father (false) will go to heaven. He also teaches the heresy the church will suffer Gods wrath, the Day of the Lord.

    My friends, no one believing in these heresies is abiding in the doctrine of Christ; nor do they have the Father or His Son. (2 John 1:9) The lack of accountability on Christian TV is one of Satan’s greatest tools. False teachers are constantly scolding viewers not to judge. They glibly say David refused to stretch his hand out against the anointed of God. The truth is David refused to physically harm Saul. The context was physical; not spiritual. (1 Sam. 24:1-6)
    And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”

  5. the anti Christ spirit started during the days of Jesus and continued through the Apostles, now they move with sophistication great power. . their aim is to deceive the elect Matthew 24:24. my advice to you my brother is what Paul in Romans 12:2

  6. ourn greatest goal as believers in Christ Jesus is to make it at the great gathering. you are fortunate to be an American, you live in a world not limited in information. study to show yourself approved. paul to Timothy

  7. I’m not in agreement with much of what I hear from the Baxters. According to them we are already in the tribulation. They don’t believe Revelation is chronological.

  8. Why is a Post-Tribulation timing of the resurrection false?

    ‘And to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.’ 1 Thessalonians 1:10

    Supporters of a post-tribulation timing of His coming teach ‘after the ‘tribulation of those days’ represents the 70th week of Daniel. They insist the Son of Man will come back for His elect only after this seven-year period ends.

    This is ironic because it was the pre-tribulation teachers that invented this misleading label. In scripture, the 70th week of Daniel is never called the tribulation period, the great tribulation, nor the day of the Lord. But won’t those believing in a post-tribulation resurrection be prepared to get the victory over the Beast?

    I’ve heard this dangerous reasoning from so many. Why should we settle for another false interpretation? Clearly, His coming will be like the days of Noah. (Luke 17:26-30) Our Jesus exhorts us to look up for our redemption before His wrath is poured out on the wicked. (Luke 21:28, 1 Thes. 1:10) Post Tribbers are teaching the exact opposite. They are actually preparing believers to experience the wrath of the Lamb. (Rev. 6:17; 15:1; 16:17)

    I emphasize again, nowhere in scripture is there a pre, mid, or post-tribulation timing of the resurrection. The only way to understand when believers will be gathered unto Jesus is by studying the words of our Lord (Mat. 24:3-51, Mark 13:3-37, Luke 21:7-38), His prophets (Isa. 13:9-11, Joel 2:30-31) and His apostles (1 Thes. 4:15-17, 2 Thes. 2:1, 1 John 2:28)

  9. Most people reject the concept of a post-tribulation rapture because it implies even Christians will have to go through a time of great trouble. So it’s so much easier to just assume all who believe will be ‘magically’ whisked up to heaven before any of the real suffering starts. That doesn’t make such a theory true, however.

  10. Look, that whole ministry is clueless. They have changed their stance so many times. They speak in half truths. Sometimes they are accurate about some things and sometimes they are WAY OFF the mark.

    But on what is going to happen on the overall picture. They are clueless. If you decide to follow them then good luck.

  11. You want to know whats real and whats not anything that does not match up with the bible is false, its pretty simple

  12. Jesus said no one know when he is coming only the father. He also said to he is coming like a thief in the night so be ready.

On that day there will be no job shortages, but who can think of such things at a time as this! The work places will be in utter turmoil. Businesses in absolute chaos!
    Remember, all who look to and love the appearing of Jesus will be gone. All of God’s Saints will have left the planet.
    Planes with no pilots, buses with no drivers, tractor-trailer trucks with no drivers, cars and pickups leaving the road. These driverless vehicles will crash into all manner of things; houses, skyscrapers, all of this will cause explosions.

    AS MY REDEEMER AND AS MY LORD!!”
    “My Lord Jesus, I also ask that you would fill me up with your
    PRECIOUS HOLY SPIRIT and lead my life now for YOUR GLORY! I THANK YOU THAT NOW , I AM SAVED!
    I THANK YOU THAT MY NAME IS WRITTEN DOWN IN THE LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE!”
    ” THANK YOU MY LORD AND MY GOD, JESUS, I AM YOURS!”
    ” I AM A CHILD OF GOD ALMIGHTY THANK YOU, JESUS!”
    AMEN!!

  15. Why the rapture is neither imminent nor pretrib.

    There is a same day connection between the rapture and the eschatological wrath of God which takes place in the day of the Lord. That means that there are preconditions for the rapture of the church. Let me explain.

    First, I want to affirm that the Scriptures are explicit about the fact that God’s elect (all those in Christ) are not going to experience His wrath in the day of the Lord (1Thes 5:9). Also, let me affirm that before the Lord’s wrath is poured out upon the unbelieving world, He will resurrect the dead in Christ, change those believers who remain alive, and AFTER THAT catch us up to be with Himself in the clouds. This catching up is what we call the rapture. It is the fulfillment of Christ’s promise to “come again and receive [us] unto [himself]”(Jn 14:3). There indeed will be a rapture of the church before the wrath of God commences, in the day of the Lord.

    Many are correct in thinking that those who are saved in Christ will be rescued before the wrath of God falls unexpectedly upon the unbelieving. However, many fail to understand all the implications of Christ’s words, especially those recorded in Luke 17:26-30, where Jesus makes three important points.

    Luk 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
    Luk 17:27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
    Luk 17:28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
    Luk 17:29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
    Luk 17:30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

    First, we see that the lost world, who will be going about their business, as usual, will be caught by surprise by the wrath of God at Christ’s revelation. Just as the preaching of the flood was rejected and unexpected by the unbelieving in Noah’s day, so shall the wrath of God in the day of the Lord be unexpected by the unbelieving. Just as many in Lot’s extended family in Sodom did not believe the warning and were caught unawares, along with all the wicked, by the divine destruction of those evil cities, so shall it be at Christ’s coming.

    • The first point that Christ makes is that God’s wrath comes unexpectedly upon the apathetic, unbelieving world.

    The point that Christ makes next is that before God’s eschatological wrath falls, the righteous are rescued. Noah and his family are shut up in the ark safe from the flood and Lot and his two daughters are removed from the area of divine wrath. So shall the righteous be, at the revelation of Christ. We shall be resurrected, changed, and raptured to Him in the clouds before the first stroke of His eschatological wrath falls.

    • The second point is that we will be rescued before He pours out His wrath.

    The final point that Christ brings home is that the very day of our rescue will be the day that His wrath begins to fall. Notice that He said that the unbelieving continued business as usual “until the day” that Noah went into the ark. Again, He said, “the same day” that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone. This is a clear indication that His wrath is connected with our rescue. The very day of our rapture will be the day His wrath begins to fall upon the unbelievers. This beginning of the pouring out of His wrath takes place on the day of Christ’s revelation following the catching up of the saints, all on the very same day.

    • The third point that Christ makes is that the day of our rescue is the day when His wrath begins. That day, is the beginning day of the eschatological period of time known as “the day of the Lord.”

    The REVELATION of Christ in the clouds with the mighty angels is the first act of Christ in the day of the Lord (2Thes 1:6-10; Matt 24:30; 1Cor 1:7; Rev 1:7). Upon that day, unexpectedly to the world, Christ is revealed, we are rescued from persecution, and God begins to persecute (tribulate) those who persecuted us (2Thes 1:6-10).

    What are some of the implications of these three important truths from Luke 17:26-30?

    1) We are removed from the earth first, before God’s wrath falls.
    2) The lost are caught by surprise by the wrath of God due to their unbelief. They did not heed the warnings.
    3) There is a hard, same day, connection between the rapture and the “day of the Lord” wrath of God.
    4) This “same day” connection between the rapture and the wrath makes all the prophetic signs associated with the day of the Lord also true concerning the rapture.
    5) Since there are many preconditions (Joel 2:10, 31; Matt 24:9-31; Mal 4:5; 2Thes 2:3; etc) which must take place before the day of the Lord can come, the same serve as preconditions for the rapture.
    6) If there are preconditions for the rapture, and there are, then the teaching of an imminent (any moment) rapture is inherently unbiblical and false.
    7) All these things being true, the only reference to the “catching up” gathering of Christ’s own unto Himself, that has explicit language indicating the timing of the rapture in relation to the great tribulation, is Matt 24:31. There we see that it comes AFTER the great tribulation is cut short (vss 22, 29), but before His wrath falls in the day of the Lord.

    The rapture takes place at some unknown point in the second half of the week after the unprecedented persecution of the saints (great tribulation), but before God’s wrath in the day of the Lord falls upon the unbelieving, beast worshiping, earth-dwellers.

    Glory be unto the Lord, Christ Jesus.

  16. There is Only One Future Coming of Christ.

    When considering Christ’s Parousia (His coming) it is important to realize that those who fail to recognize the difference between that period of unprecedented persecution of the elect and ethnic Israel that Jesus called great tribulation and the period of the eschatological wrath of God in the day of the Lord, are forced into dividing Christ’s singular future Parousia, His second, into two future comings. It is true that we will not experience God’s eschatological wrath, but the church will most certainly go through the unprecedented persecution of the great tribulation which precedes the day of the Lord. The Scriptures testify of that which the churches have believed and taught throughout the last 2000 years, the singular future parousia of Christ, His second.

    Believers have always recognized that Jesus would remain with the Father in Heaven until He is sent by Him at the times of the restitution of all things. That is what Peter said.

    Act 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
    Act 3:20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:
    Act 3:21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.

    Paul said that His coming would be His second, at which time He will bring salvation.

    Heb 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear THE SECOND TIME without sin unto salvation.

    There is no mention of a third or fourth parousia in the Scriptures. We are raptured at His second parousia. His first parousia took place ~ 2000 years ago at Christ’s first advent. The Greek word parousia means arrival and continuing presence. It is found 24 times in the NT. It is translated “coming” or “presence”. In 17 of the 24 appearances in the NT it refers to Christ’s arrival and continuing presence. It cannot be overemphasized, that it refers to more than His initial arrival. It involves the whole of Christ’s activity after He is sent by the Father (Gal 4:4; Acts 3:19-21). His first coming was more than His conception. It involved His life, ministry, death, burial, and resurrection. So also, shall His second coming (parousia) involve much more than His initial appearing. It will include all His eschatological activity through the millennium at the least.

    The classic rapture passage is a description of our gathering unto Christ at this parousia, Christ’s second.

    1Th 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the COMING [parousia] of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

    Our gathering unto Christ at the rapture is associated with the Parousia, His second coming.

    2Th 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the COMING [parousia] of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by OUR GATHERING TOGETHER UNTO HIM,

    It is at this coming [parousia] that we are rescued, before the wrath falls, like Noah and Lot were rescued first.

    Mat 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the COMING [parousia] of the Son of man be.
    Mat 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
    Mat 24:39 AND KNEW NOT until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the COMING [parousia] of the Son of man be.

    It is at this coming that Christ will REVEAL Himself in glory with the mighty angels. Notice that His Revelation takes place at His Parousia.

    Luk 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
    Luk 17:27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
    Luk 17:28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
    Luk 17:29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
    Luk 17:30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is REVEALED [apokalupsis].

    Jesus taught that the wrath that He brings at His coming and revelation is unexpected by the unbelieving, Beast worshiping, earth dwellers. He also taught that the righteous (those justified in Him) would be taken to safety before His wrath falls. There is one more important truth that He emphasizes in the Luke 17:26-30 passage. It is the same day connection between our rescue and His wrath falling upon our persecutors.

    It is at this COMING and REVELATION that the persecuted church will rest from persecution and Christ will, in RECOMPENSE, begin to tribulate those who persecuted us.

    2Th 1:6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to RECOMPENCE tribulation to them that trouble you;
    2Th 1:7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be REVEALED [apokalupsis] from heaven with his mighty angels,
    2Th 1:8 In flaming fire taking VENGEANCE on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
    2Th 1:9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
    2Th 1:10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

    It is this coming that initiates the day of the Lord, the period of God’s eschatological wrath. It is a RECOMPENCE of VENGEANCE upon those who persecuted us who are His elect.

    Isa 34:8 For it is the day of the LORD’S VENGEANCE, and the year of RECOMPENCES for the controversy of Zion.

    Isa 35:4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with VENGEANCE, even God with a RECOMPENCE; he will come and save you.

    It is a response to the cries of the saints that their blood be avenged upon the Beast worshiping, earth-dwellers who persecuted them.

    Rev 6:9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
    Rev 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and AVENGE our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
    Rev 6:11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

    When the final number of those to die as martyrs in the great tribulation is fulfilled, Christ will come speedily and avenge them. But between the many who fall away and those slain as martyrs shall there be Faith on the earth?

    Luk 18:7 And shall not God AVENGE his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
    Luk 18:8 I tell you that he will AVENGE them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

    Jesus said that the violent persecution of the great tribulation will cause “many to be offended” and the false prophets of that day, who use lying signs and wonders, “shall deceive many.” Will any believers remain?

    Mat 24:9 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.
    Mat 24:10 And THEN SHALL MANY BE OFFENDED, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
    Mat 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and SHALL DECEIVE MANY.

    Paul referred to this falling away, saying that it must come before Christ’s Parousia, before His day.

    2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come A FALLING AWAY first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

    Jesus says that the days of that unprecedented persecution and supernatural deception must be shortened (cut short) to save some of the elect alive upon the earth.

    Mat 24:21 For then shall be GREAT TRIBULATION, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
    Mat 24:22 And except THOSE DAYS should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

    It is these who make it through the great tribulation persecution of the elect, that are “ALIVE AND REMAIN” when Christ comes.

    1Th 4:17 Then we which are ALIVE AND REMAIN shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

    It is they of whom Christ said:

    Mat 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same SHALL BE SAVED.

    The salvation in context is the physical deliverance that shall come at Christ’s appearing and revelation. It is that salvation that we are appointed unto in 1Thes 5:9.

    1Th 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
    1Th 5:10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

    The wrath, that we are not appointed unto, is God’s wrath in the day of the Lord. We see this from the context of 1Thes 5:9 as seen in verses 2 and 3. Notice that the sudden (unexpected) destruction comes upon the earth dwellers in the day of the Lord.

    1Th 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
    1Th 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
    1Th 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

    Notice that the wrath of God in the day of the Lord comes unexpectedly upon the unbelieving, Beast worshiping, earth dwellers. But we are told that we are not in darkness that the day should overtake us as a thief. Christ’s arrival will not be unexpected for us because Christ has given us many signs which will precede His coming.

    The sign that immediately precedes Christ’s arrival in the clouds with the mighty angels is that cosmic sign that was said to come before the day of the Lord. It is the darkening of the sun, moon, and stars that is often spoken of in association with the day of His fierce wrath.

    Joel 2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.

    John sees this very sign when the sixth seal is opened. It follows a great earthquake that moves mountains and islands out of their places.

    Rev 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
    Rev 6:13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
    Rev 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

    These are the very events that Jesus says, when we see them, to be encouraged (“lift up your heads”) and look to the sky (“look up”) for our redemption is nigh. He communicated that when these things happen, He will arrive to gather us unto himself at any moment. Notice how Jesus describes the effects of the great earthquake, “the sea and the waves roaring”. Even the fear, perplexity, and distress match John’s description in Rev 6:15-17 and Isaiah’s in Isa 2:19.

    Luk 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
    Luk 21:26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
    Luk 21:27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
    Luk 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

    After the cosmic sign Jesus will be revealed coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Every eye will see Him with the mighty angels.

    Rev 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

    Mat 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
    Mat 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
    Mat 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

    It is following His revelation that Christ raises the dead (1Cor 15:23), changes the survivors of the great tribulation (1Cor 15:51-52), and gathers us to Himself via the angels (1Thes 4:15-17; Matt 24:31). Notice that the cosmic sign comes after the great tribulation (Matt 24:29). The tribulation of those days is the great tribulation referred to by that name in verses 21-22.

    May our gracious Lord open your eyes to these truths.

  17. • Every church should begin organizing small home groups in the event people are unable to attend evening services.

    • Every church should prepare the names and all information on the elderly members and especially the members who are widows indeed. The local church must care for those who are unable to care for themselves.

    •Every church should have two feeding programs: one for the unchurched and one for those of the household of faith who are in serious need. Each member can provide cans of food when attending church, as this can become part of the feeding and care ministry.

    •Every church, if possible, needs a special fund to assist any dedicated members who may hit a crisis and need small amounts of financial assistance. Again, this is for those who have been faithful to God and his kingdom in the past.

  18. It’s close to the end of the world and return of Jesus Christ war in Iran and it’s in Daniel in the Bible and others are going to but in in the buissnes of what’s going on between Iran and United States of America and it’s going to get worse The push for post Trib Rapture is growing. Post-Trib Rapture is well supported by the Bible and we see growing evidence in the world around us every day

    For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18.
    The disciples of Christ who have already died will be resurrected first, and will be joined by those who are still living in Christ. They will all be raised up together in incorruptible bodies to meet Jesus in the air.

    “For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.” 1 Corinthians 15:52-53.

    the anti Christ spirit started during the days of Jesus and continued through the Apostles, now they move with sophistication great power. . their aim is to deceive the elect Matthew 24:24. my advice to you my brother is what Paul in Romans 12:2

    ourn greatest goal as believers in Christ Jesus is to make it at the great gathering. you are fortunate to be an American, you live in a world not limited in information. study to show yourself approved. paul to Timothy

  19. Why is a Post-Tribulation timing of the resurrection false?

    ‘And to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.’ 1 Thessalonians 1:10

    Supporters of a post-tribulation timing of His coming teach ‘after the ‘tribulation of those days’ represents the 70th week of Daniel. They insist the Son of Man will come back for His elect only after this seven-year period ends.

    This is ironic because it was the pre-tribulation teachers that invented this misleading label. In scripture, the 70th week of Daniel is never called the tribulation period, the great tribulation, nor the day of the Lord. But won’t those believing in a post-tribulation resurrection be prepared to get the victory over the Beast?

    I’ve heard this dangerous reasoning from so many. Why should we settle for another false interpretation? Clearly, His coming will be like the days of Noah. (Luke 17:26-30) Our Jesus exhorts us to look up for our redemption before His wrath is poured out on the wicked. (Luke 21:28, 1 Thes. 1:10) Post Tribbers are teaching the exact opposite. They are actually preparing believers to experience the wrath of the Lamb. (Rev. 6:17; 15:1; 16:17)

    I emphasize again, nowhere in scripture is there a pre, mid, or post-tribulation timing of the resurrection. The only way to understand when believers will be gathered unto Jesus is by studying the words of our Lord (Mat. 24:3-51, Mark 13:3-37, Luke 21:7-38), His prophets (Isa. 13:9-11, Joel 2:30-31) and His apostles (1 Thes. 4:15-17, 2 Thes. 2:1, 1 John 2:28)

  20. While it is hard to settle on the three major reasons for my belief in the pre-trib rapture, I think one of the greatest supports of the pre-trib view is the preponderance of evidence when everything is considered. While I believe there are some key evidences as I will illustrate below, its the overall impact of the many evidences that add to my conviction of the pre-trib view. Perhaps this in itself is one reason, but I’ll suggest three more.

    (1) The time of the tribulation is a time of the outpouring of wrath on the world. I believe there is plenty of biblical evidence that the church is not appointed to wrath but promised deliverance. Closely associated with this is the important distinction between the church and Israel. As a time of wrath, it encompasses Daniel’s 70th week when God deals with Israel in the Day of the Lord to purge out the rebels and bring the rest to Christ. In other words, the nature of the tribulation as a time of wrath and the nature of the church as a body of God’s people not appointed to wrath or this kind of divine judgment (Rom. 5:9; 81; 1 Thess. 1:9-10; 5:9). The Day of the Lord is a time that begins with wrath and the church we have been promised the church cannot be overtaken by this great day.

    (2) I also believe that the return of the Lord has always been imminent. The pretribulational interpretation is the only view which holds to the coming of the Lord for the church as actually imminent. If the rapture occurs at the end of the tribulation, then that could not be the case. Though a detailed development of pre-tribulationism had not been set forth as with other doctrines, I do believe it can also be shown that the early church believed in the imminency of the Lord’s return.

    (3) The many contrasts that can be seen between the coming of the Lord for the church and His second coming to earth. The Bema or Judgment Seat of Christ necessitates an interval of time like the seven-years of the Tribulation.
