SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEOS AND LINKS: I read a lot of debates on the word press blogosphere concerning some hot topics in the Bible. Two debates I see a lot is the Identity of the Antichrist and the Rapture. I will eventually put an article up about the Identity of the Antichrist, but for now I am writing about the reason why I believe in a Pre-Tribulation Rapture. I am putting up links and videos that may shed light on the issue of the Rapture. If you agree with me or not it does not mean that your salvation is dependent on it. Jesus is the way. He is the rock in our lives. Whatever Tribulations may come in our lives, than we can rest assure that our belief in God will always comfort us in those trying times. Dig into prophecy and let the Spirit of truth show you the road of facts. I hope this is great reading for answers you may be looking for about the Rapture.
A MOM LOOKING UP WORDPRESS: There is an ongoing debate about when the rapture of the church will take place. As most of us know, there are three lines of thought concerning the “when”. There is the pre-tribulation rapture, occurring before the tribulation. Others think it will happen at the mid-point of the tribulation. Still others think the church will be present for much of the tribulation, perhaps even making it to “the end” when Jesus returns and sets up His kingdom.
I have found those who believe in the mid-trib and post-trib lines of thought get very….passionate….when discussing it READ MORE http://amomlookingup.wordpress.com/2014/02/04/consider-the-restrainer/comment-page-1/#comment-427
TRUTH FOR FREEDOM WORDPRESS: In eschatology, it is important to remember that almost all Christians agree on these three things: 1) there is coming a time of great tribulation such as the world has never seen, 2) after the Tribulation, Christ will return to establish His kingdom on earth, and, 3) there will be a Rapture—a translation from mortality to immortality—for believers (John 14:1–3; 1 Corinthians 15:51–52; 1 Thessalonians 4:16–17). The question is when does the Rapture occur in relation to the Tribulation and the Second Coming of Christ?
Through the years three main theories have emerged concerning the timing of the Rapture: pretribulationism (the belief that the Rapture will occur before the Tribulation begins), midtribulationism (the belief that the Rapture will occur at the midpoint of the Tribulation), and posttribulationism (the belief that the Rapture will occur at the end of the Tribulation). This article deals specifically with the pretribulational view.
Pretribulationism teaches that the Rapture occurs before the Tribulation starts READ MORE: http://truth4freedom.wordpress.com/2014/01/31/questions-about-the-end-times-what-are-the-strengths-and-weaknesses-of-the-pretribulational-view-of-the-rapture-pretribulationism/
LAMBLION.COM: Frequently I am asked to explain or defend the end-time view of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the Church. For that topic, lots of Bible verses, readings and references rattle around in my skull. I can extract each like a Powerball out of an air machine and present it to the inquiring mind, but never in a linear, comprehensive manner in which I particularly appreciate. And so, this article is my attempt to organize my brain on the Pre-Tribulation Rapture view. You’re welcome to come along on the journey!
Taking It to the Bedrock
My belief that there will be a Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the Church stands on the bedrock of the following foundational tenets:
A) The Bible is the Word of God
The 66-book canon called the Bible is God’s inerrant, infallible message to mankind, explaining His purposes and plans for the ages (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21). No other document can be reliably trusted, nor remotely reach the bar for the requirements of authentication that the Bible attains to so easily READ MORE: http://www.lamblion.com/articles/articles_rapture7.php
