I believe in Pre-Tribulation Rapture. You don’t have to accept that doctrine, I don’t force it upon anyone anyway & it doesn’t bring you to hell or heaven based on that belief. I just read the Bible and believe what it says. What I want you is to prepare for the coming of Jesus Christ, whether it be early pre tribulation or not, that shouldn’t matter, We should always be ready, not just when tribulation starts, because what if God takes your life tomorrow? that would be your judgment day. SO always be ready for the Worst and Best. Amen?
1. There is a difference between Tribulation(distress or suffering resulting from oppression or persecution) and Great Tribulation I believe and that’s where it gets confusing.
I believe we will suffer Tribulation but not GREAT Tribulation and we will be raptured from it.
2. Bible on Rapture:
Matthew 24:36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 40 Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. 42 Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
3. Bible backup on Pre-Tribulation Rapture
Revelation 2:22 Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their[g]deeds.
(This seems here: if they repent, they will NOT face Great Tribulation)
Revelation 3:10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.
(This seems here: if we Persevere, we will NOT face Great Tribulation or the “hour of Trial that comes upon WHOLE World”)
Luke 17:26-30 says it will be like the days of Noah and Lot right?
what happened? then? Noah escaped God’s judgment, Lot escaped judgment, and were safe and sound and were not destroyed by the wrath of God.
why? because they were Righteous. Ofcourse no man is so perfectly clean, but they were serving God and at least keeping themselves holy according to God’s point of view, Washed by the Blood of Jesus Christ as we repent of our evil deeds and turn from them.
***End point***This should in no way keep you away just because of differences in this doctrine of pre tribulation or mid trib. or post trib. It’s just your belief and doesn’t do anything with your salvation.
