The fact is, Jesus said; “ IMMEDIATLY 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: 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. 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.” (Matthew 24:29-31) SEE: Our class on Matthew Chapter 24 in www.answersintheword.com for more detailed information. I don’t see how Jesus can make it any clearer then when he said “ IMMEDIATLY AFTER THE TRIBULATION”. In fact Pre -Tribulation Rapture doesn’t fit into the Book of Daniel or the Book of Revelations or Any Prophecy in the Bible! The Pre -Tribulation Doctrine is straight from the Pits of Hell from the Devil himself! Jesus said about the Devil, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. “ (John 8:44). Pre -Tribulation Rapture doctrine started in 1830. Today almost all Churches teach Pre – Tribulation Rapture including the Baptists. This false doctrine was started from the writings of John Darby, and it gained great acceptance by the Bible Cemeteries, OH excuse me I mean Seminaries. It took fire and spread rapidly through out the Christian World because no one wants to go through The Great Tribulation including myself. I wish it were true, but as you can see by Studying the Scriptures that is not true ! “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”(Acts 17:11). Are you “MORE NOBLE” ? Do you search the Scriptures Daily to see if these things are so? There will be a Great Confusion in the Church and cause a Great Falling Away by the people who don’t know the Word. “Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.” (Matthew 22:29). Many will turn to the Anti- Christ who will be saying he is the Messiah and he will have his false Prophet doing miracles and leading people to believe and follow him. The Devil has his counterfeit plan trying to imitate God’s plan like Jesus had John the Baptist to prepare his way before him. “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, that ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 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; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4). Be like the people in Daniel 11:32b-35 “but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days. Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries. And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.” You see Christians need to go through the Great Tribulation. “confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through MUCH TRIBULATION enter into the kingdom of God.” (Acts 14:22). One of God’s purposes for Christians to go through The Great Tribulation is to “try us and purge us and make us white” as it says in Daniel 11:35. “White” in Hebrew means to purify and purge and clean. When your really going thru it you want to get right and desperate with the Lord God. Be strong in the WORD and FAITH so God can use you in these END TIMES. You can find the Truth about everything you need to know to make it thru this life and more from JESUS CHRIST in www.answersintheword.com in fact if you see anything you don’t agree with and you can prove it by the Scriptures, please let us know so we can change it and edit it. We surely do not want to teach anything that is false doctrine and neither should you or support any teaching that is not true. NOTHING SHORT OF RIGHT IS RIGHT ! This is a very important subject, if it weren’t, Jesus would not have taught about it so much! Remember The 6 Trumpets of The Great Tribulation period and The 7 Vials are divided in half by The Rapture which is The 7th Trump. The Rapture is when Jesus Christ takes the Saved to Heaven and resurrects the bodies of the dead Saved. “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 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.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17). “Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 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 15:51-52). “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.”(Galatians 1:8. Beloved it is time to get this right !
Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen
