A civil war is taking place among Christian concerning the Rapture. Mid-Tribulation and Post-Tribers like to call Pre-Tribers liars, deceivers and lazy laymen. Let’s get one thing straight, The Rapture is not required as a saving grace for salvation. I am a believer of the Pre-tribulation Rapture, but if it doesn’t happen I will still do what is required of my faith and my trust in God to prepare for what will happen to me. A lot of these Post-Tribers and Mid-tribers believe that the Antichrist is Obama or that the Antichrist will be Islamic. The bible never mentions the Antichrist being Islamic, but you don’t see me offering 10000 dollars just to prove my point. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that the Antichrist will be Islamic. In fact the Islamic Antichrist lie is borderline twisting of scripture and Joel Richardson is a proponent of this deceptive thinking. The video that I will post below shows Good Fight ministries offering 10,000 dollars to prove that the Pre-tribulation Rapture is never mentioned in any verse. They might want to reconsider that offer. The title of the movie is called Left Behind or Led Astray implying we are leading people astray with the Pre-Trib theory. This is how some proponents of those who do not believe in the Pre-Tribualtion Rapture approach those that do, by making believers in Christ look like fools and deceivers of the faith
If we slowly and carefully study scripture we can come to a conclusion that the Church will not be here on Earth when the Tribulation happens or even before the Day of the Lord. Let’s go to some verses that may prove the Church will be raptured before those two events happen. Luke 21: 36: Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. If you read the whole passage of Luke you come across 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. We also read Men’s hearts are failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth. This is the Day of the Lord and it’s not a pretty picture, but Luke 21:36 talks about being accounted worthy to escape all these things. WHAT!!! Why would Jesus utter those words? The text is basically saying that the believers in Christ can escape all these things.
We shall go to another verse that may help us understand that we can escape all these things on the day of the Lord’s anger and wrath. Zephaniah 2:3-4 Before the decree bring forth (seven year peace treaty of the Antichrist), before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the Lord come upon you, before the day of the Lord’s anger come upon you. Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord’s anger. The Zephaniah Passage talks about seeking the Lord so that You will be hid in the day of the Lords anger. This is before the Day of the Lord and the7 year peace treaty by the Antichrist with Israel. The Church will be raptured before the Day of the Lord and way before the Tribulation period. We the believers are not appointed unto wrath. Deal with that fact!
One of the better video on defending Pre tribulations. Please watch and ask yourself if this guy is telling you the truth or just being lazy.
Isaiah 26:20-21 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. 21 For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain. What chambers is God talking about that the doors will be shut until the indignation overpast? The indignation is the wrath of God and the Day of the Lord. No one is forcing you to believe in the Pre-Trib Rapture. I will not go door to door to defend it. What I will defend is my belief in Christ and His salvation concerning what he endured at the cross. The Pre-Trib is a hope that we will not be here before the Day of the Lord and the 7 year Tribulation. It is not something that makes me rely on salvation. Investigate it for yourself and if you come to a conclusion that you do not believe in the Pre-Trib than that is your opinion. Don’t let The tone of their arguments that are full of pride mingled with detest against all those who are not in agreement with them motivate you to do the same. Will you stop believing in Jesus and ultimately an eternity with the Almighty because of the difference in the Rapture? No you will not! When and if and the Rapture happens than I hope that whatever I did on this Earth counted for something to further God’ Kingdom. The Pre-Tribulation Rapture is a blessed hope that we will not be here when wrath and judgment come upon this Earth. Trust in God and the eternal Salvation that Jesus provides for you. That is your true rapture ticket to live for eternity with him.
