Pre-tribulation Rapture, Mid-Tribulation Rapture, and Post Tribulation Rapture are all false teachings. The word “Rapture” is not in the Bible and it is adding to the teachings of Jesus. Rapture is taking away the glory of Jesus as we will not in any way being raptured. We will be resurrected and let’s not lose sight of what is actually written in the Bible and not by empty philosophy which only promotes more questions than Unity in Christ Jesus. Revelation 22:18-21 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book. He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.
Don’t listen to men who have made up stories that promote questions rather than unity. Those who claim to be wise with worldly wisdom using empty words of flattery using their philosophy to win the itching ears of the simple. 2 Peter 2:1-3 But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who brought them- bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth in disrepute. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them and their destruction has not been sleeping.
Listen not to man’s wisdom which is foolishness to God, but rather listen to God’s Wisdom which is far greater. 1 Corinthians 1:19-21 For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.” Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. Here is the Truth in God’s Word as Jesus the Living Word of God spoke regarding the taking of the wicked to be judged and burned when compared to the days of Noah that took them in the flood in Matthew 24: 36-41 “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying, and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until THE FLOOD CAME AND “TOOK” THEM ALL AWAY. THAT IS HOW IT WILL BE AT THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN. TWO MEN WILL BE IN THE FIELD; ONE WILL BE “TAKEN” AND THE OTHER ONE LEFT. TWO WOMEN WILL BE GRINDING WITH A HAND MILL; ONE WILL BE “TAKEN” AND THE OTHER LEFT.
These verses are clearly speaking of the wicked being taken to be judged and condemned by surprise just like in the days of Noah, the wicked were unaware until the flood took them all away because Jesus says that this is what it will be like when He returns. Pretribualtion Rapture theory is partly based on the verses regarding two will be in the field, one will be taken and the other left as the rapture of the Church. But they are only leaning on their own understanding instead of listening to what God says in Bible and with their hearts to know what He is actually saying. When you read this with prayer first for God’s Wisdom and understanding, He is faithful to guide your hearts to See and Know His Truth. The word “Rapture” is not biblical at all. Resurrection is the glory of God in Christ Jesus and we have this promise for those who are sealed for the Day of Redemption in Christ Jesus to be risen from the dead and Jesus will come down with the trumpet call and those who are still alive and are left will meet Jesus in the air for all eternity, and also the dead in Christ will rise first. Pray and read these words in God’s Bible about the Coming of the Lord in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord’s own word, we tell you that WE WHO ARE STILL ALIVE AND “LEFT” TILL THE COMING OF OUR LORD, WILL CERTAINLY NOT PRECEDE THOSE WHO HAVE FALLEN ASLEEP. FOR THE LORD HIMSELF WILL COME DOWN FROM HEAVEN, WITH A LOUD TRUMPET CALL OF GOD, AND THE DEAD IN CHRIST WILL RISE FIRST. AFTER THAT, WE WHO ARE STILL ALIVE AND “LEFT” WILL BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM IN THE CLOUDS TO MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR. AND SO WE WILL BE WITH THE LORD FOREVER. THEREFORE ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER WITH THESE WORDS.
Do you notice Matthew 24:39 how it speaks of the wicked with the words THE FLOOD TOOK THEM ALL AWAY and how JESUS SAID THAT’S HOW IT WILL BE AT THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN? Do you also notice how Jesus was saying what happens when He returns for the wicked in verse 40 THE SECOND PART OF THE SENTENCE STATES THAT ONE WILL BE “TAKEN” and the other one “LEFT?” COMPARE VERSE 40 WITH 1 THESSALONIANS 4:16-17 FOR THE LORD HIMSELF WILL COME DOWN FROM HEAVEN WITH THE A LOUD COMMAND, WITH THE VOICE OF THE ARCHANGEL AND WITH THE TRUMPET CALL OF GOD, AND THE DEAD IN CHRIST WILL RISE FIRST. AFTER THAT, “WE WHO ARE STILL ALIVE” AND ARE “LEFT” WILL BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM IN THE CLOUDS TO MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR. AND SO WE WILL BE WITH THE LORD FOREVER. Did you notice the words STILL ALIVE AND ARE LEFT? This is clearly not speaking of the wicked being left but truly only the righteous that are still alive will be left and the wicked will be TAKEN to be judged and condemned because we will be risen to life and the wicked will be risen to die and burn in the second death of torment forever. This will happen at the last day as Jesus says in JOHN 6:39 AND THIS IS THE WILL OF HIM WHO SENT ME, THAT I SHALL LOSE NONE OF ALL HE HAS GIVEN ME, BUT RAISE THEM UP AT THE LAST DAY. Jesus prayed for his disciples not to be taken out of this world but to be protected from evil. PRAY AND LISTEN TO THE WORDS OF JESUS IN JOHN 17:15 MY PRAYER IS NOT THAT YOU TAKE THEM OUT OF THE WORLD BUT THAT YOU PROTECT THEM FROM THE EVIL ONE. REJECT MAN’S PHILOSOPHY AND LISTEN TO JESUS AND TAKE HEART HIS WORDS AS HE SPEAKS OF HIS SECOND COMING WHICH IS BOTH REDEMPTION FOR THE SAVED AND JUDGMENT AND WRATH FOR THE WICKED IN LUKE 21:25-31 “THERE WILL BE SIGNS IN THE SUN, MOON AND STARS. ON THE EARTH, NATIONS WILL BE IN ANGUISH AND PERPLEXITY AT THE ROARING AND TOSSING OF THE SEA. MEN WILL FAINT FROM TERROR, APPREHENSIVE OF WHAT IS COMING ON THE WORLD, FOR THE HEAVENLY BODIES WILL BE SHAKEN. AT THAT TIME THEY WILL SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN A CLOUD WITH POWER AND GREAT GLORY. WHEN THESE THINGS BEGIN TO TAKE PLACE, STAND UP AND LIFT UP YOUR HEADS, BECAUSE “YOUR REDEMPTION IS DRAWING NEAR.” He told them this parable: “LOOK AT THE FIG TREE AND ALL THE TREES. WHEN THEY SPROUT LEAVES, YOU CAN SEE FOR YOURSELVES AND KNOW THAT SUMMER IS NEAR. EVEN SO, WHEN YOU SEE THESE THINGS HAPPENING, “YOU KNOW THAT THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS NEAR.”
2 PETER 3:10-13 BUT THE DAY OF THE LORD WILL COME LIKE A THIEF. THE HEAVENS WILL DISAPPEAR WITH A ROAR; THE ELEMENTS WILL BE DESTROYED BY FIRE, AND THE EARTH AND EVERYTHING IN IT WILL BE LAID BARE. SINCE EVERYTHING WILL BE DESTROYED IN THIS WAY, WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE OUGHT YOU TO BE? YOU OUGHT TO LIVE HOLY AND GODLY LIVES AS YOU LOOK FORWARD TO THE DAY OF GOD AND SPEED ITS COMING. THAT DAY WILL BRING ABOUT THE DESTRUCTION OF THE HEAVENS BY FIRE, AND THE ELEMENTS WILL MELT IN THE HEAT. BUT IN KEEPING WITH HIS PROMISE WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO A NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH, THE HOME OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. These verses are clearly speaking of the Day of the Lord as the same as the Second Coming of Jesus because these same words are spoken of Jesus regarding THE GREAT TRIBULATION AND IMMEDIATELY AFTER WILL BE THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS in MATTHEW 24:3-8, 27-31 AS JESUS WAS SITTING ON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES, THE DISCIPLES CAME TO HIM PRIVATELY. “TELL US,” THEY SAID, “WHEN WILL THIS HAPPEN, AND WHAT WILL BE THE SIGN OF YOUR COMING AND OF THE END OF THE AGE?” JESUS ANSWERED, “WATCH OUT THAT NO ONE DECEIVES YOU. FOR MANY WILL COME IN MY NAME, CLAIMING, ‘I AM THE CHRIST, AND WILL DECEIVE MANY. YOU WILL HEAR OF WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS, BUT SEE TO IT THAT YOU ARE NOT ALARMED. SUCH THINGS MUST HAPPEN, BUT THE END IS STILL TO COME. NATION WILL RISE AGAINST NATION, AND KINGDOM AGAINST KINGDOM. THERE WILL BE FAMINES AND EARTHQUAKES IN VARIOUS PLACES. ALL THESE ARE THE BEGINNING OF BIRTH PAINS. FOR AS LIGHTNING THAT COMES FROM THE EAST IS VISIBLE EVEN IN THE WEST, SO WILL BE THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN. IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE DISTRESS OF THOSE DAYS “THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT; THE STARS WILL FALL FROM THE SKY, AND THE HEAVENLY BODIES WILL BE SHAKEN. AT THAT TIME THE SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN WILL APPEAR IN THE SKY, AND ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH WILL MOURN. THEY WILL SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY, WITH POWER AND GREAT GLORY. AND HE WILL SEND HIS ANGELS TO WITH A LOUD TRUMPET CALL, AND THEY WILL GATHER HIS ELECT FROM THE FOUR WINDS, FROM ONE END OF THE HEAVENS TO THE OTHER.
HERE ARE VERSES ABOUT THE DAY OF THE LORD WHICH IS THE SAME AS THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS WHICH IS DREADFUL FOR THE WICKED AND BLESSINGS FOR THE RIGHTEOUS, ELECT, AND ADOPTED CHILDREN OF GOD IN JOEL 3:13-16, 20 SWING THE SICKLE, FOR THE HARVEST (MATTHEW 13:39 B THE HARVEST IS THE END OF THIS AGE, AND THE HARVESTERS ARE THE ANGELS.) IS RIPE. COME, TRAMPLE THE GRAPES, FOR THE WINEPRESS IS FULL AND THE VATS OVERFLOW- SO GREAT IS THEIR WICKEDNESS!” MULTITUDES, MULTITUDES IN THE VALLEY OF DECISION! FOR THE DAY OF THE LORD IS NEAR IN THE VALLEY OF DECISION. THE SUN AND MOON WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE STARS WILL NO LONGER SHINE, THE LORD WILL ROAR FROM ZION AND THUNDER FROM JERUSALEM; THE EARTH AND THE SKY WILL TREMBLE. BUT THE LORD WILL BE A REFUGE FOR HIS PEOPLE, A STRONGHOLD FOR THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL. JUDAH WILL BE INHABITED FOREVER AND JERUSALEM THROUGH ALL THE GENERATIONS. Proverbs 10:30 The righteous will never be uprooted, but the wicked will not remain in the land.
Psalm 37:10 A little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look for them, they will not be found. This passage in Psalm 37 speaks of the wicked being taken out not to be found. Here is the glory of God speaking of death and resurrection like Jesus in Romans 6:4 -5 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection. These verses are speaking of God’s glory in the death and resurrection of Christ Jesus and His glory also in us when He raises us like Jesus. “Rapture” is not the glory of God and we need to take very serious the Word of God and not add anything nor take away any part of the prophecy of this Book, which is God’s Word and not for our own opinion, or to listen to man’s opinion. God teaches the heart, we fellowship together for spiritual edification, and encouragement. Let’s not take the Lord’s Grace for granted and add things that we like or someone else likes, nor should we take away what we don’t like in God’s Word for Truth. Remember to Listen to the Holy Spirit of God which is Truth and embrace correction and rebuke. HEAR JESUS as He speaks to the church of Philadelphia regarding how The Great Tribulation is the hour of trial that will come upon the whole world to test them who are alive on the earth in Revelation 3:10 Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth.
These words are clearly speaking of a trial to test the people on the earth and is not the Wrath of God. The Wrath of God is when he judges and condemns the wicked to eternal fiery furnace. You can either choose to listen to the Words of Jesus in His Book and the Holy Spirit that teaches your heart, or you can choose to listen to people which are falsely speaking and teaching in the Name of Jesus to be condemned. These words I have shared in scripture are God’s Words and not mine. If you choose to disagree, then you are rejecting God’s Truth. Listen to God’s Word regarding what His Wrath is in Romans 1:18 For the Wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and all unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. Revelation 20:15 If anyone’s name was not found in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. Hebrews 9:27-28 Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him. MATTHEW 25:41 “THEN HE WILL SAY TO THOSE ON HIS LEFT, ‘DEPART FROM ME, YOU ARE CURSED, INTO THE ETERNAL FIRE PREPARED FOR THE DEVIL AND HIS ANGELS. ROMANS 2:1-8 YOU, THEREFORE, HAVE NO EXCUSE, YOU WHO PASS JUDGMENT ON SOMEONE ELSE, FOR AT WHATEVER POINT YOU JUDGE THE OTHER, YOU ARE CONDEMNING YOURSELF BECAUSE YOU YOURSELF PASS JUDGMENT DO THE SAME THINGS. NOW WE KNOW THAT GOD’S JUDGMENT AGAINST THOSE WHO DO SUCH THINGS IS BASED ON TRUTH. SO WHEN YOU, A MERE MAN, PASS JUDGMENT ON THEM AND YET DO THE SAME THINGS, DO YOU THINK YOU WILL ESCAPE GOD’S JUDGMENT? OR DO YOU SHOW CONTEMPT FOR THE RICHES OF HIS KINDNESS, TOLERANCE, AND PATIENCE, NOT REALIZING THAT GOD’S KINDNESS LEADS YOU TOWARD REPENTANCE? BUT BECAUSE OF YOUR STUBBORNNESS AND YOUR UNREPENTANT HEART, YOU ARE STORING UP WRATH AGAINST YOURSELF FOR THE DAY OF GOD’S WRATH, WHEN HIS RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENT WILL BE REVEALED. GOD “WILL GIVE TO EACH PERSON ACCORDING TO WHAT HE HAS DONE.” TO THOSE WHO BY PERSISTENCE IN DOING GOOD SEEK GLORY, HONOR AND IMMORTALITY, HE WILL GIVE ETERNAL LIFE. BUT FOR THOSE WHO ARE SELF SEEKING AND WHO REJECT THE TRUTH AND FOLLOW EVIL, THERE WILL BE WRATH AND ANGER.
2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you- unless of course, you fail the test?
