An Introduction to The Pre-Trib Rapture

In these studies I won't stoop to finger pointing and name calling, or look to the writings of men over the centuries for justification. I will do what most seem to forget, or avoid, when supporting one view or another of the Rapture, I will look to the Word of God. And plenty of it.

The popular view is that "true" Christians will be "raptured" away at any moment and leave their "luke-warm" brothers and sisters to fend for themselves during the reign of the Antichrist. This view of the Rapture often holds that the Holy Spirit will be "removed" from the earth yet people will still be getting saved. That God has two sets of Chosen People. That the terms "saints", "remnant", and "overcomers" throughout Revelation are not referring to Christians at all but to Jews; and the warnings in Matthew 24 are for Jews only as well. Somehow we will meet The Lord in the air, but He hasn't yet returned. The list goes on and on. There are many contradictions and problems with the Pre-Tribulation view of the rapture, I will address as many as possible throughout this study.

It is understandable that Christians might expect to escape the worst time ever experienced on the face of the earth, but the reality is that Christians have always suffered for their faith. Look to Sudan, China, Egypt, India, and other countries to see violent oppression, murder and outright hatred for Christians to this day. Look at the thousands of Christians persecuted by Nero in 70AD, look at the tens of thousands who were murdered and tortured during the various Inquistions, look at the Apostles, look at our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!

So are we to believe that in a culture and era so morally degraded and numb to truth - yet so arrogant - that we somehow deserve to be swept away in a rapture prior to any suffering, refinement, and testing of our faith?! Come on folks, if you are sleeping it is time to wake out of your slumber! There is plenty of Scriptual evidence that shows we will go through the Great Tribulation or die trying. But if God be for us then who can be against us? (Romans 8:31). Nothing can seperate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus, surely not death or tribulation.

Romans 8:35-39
  1. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
  2. As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
  3. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
  4. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
  5. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The first study in this series, while not specifically focused on the Rapture, addresses the issue of whether or not there is a distinction between Israel and the Church throughout Scripture. It is in three parts. Part I is titled Finding The Church in the Old Testament. Part II, Who is Israel? A Brief Biblical History of Israel. And Part III, The Lost Tribes of Israel, Scattered Among the Nations.

so, born-again believers can be raptured any day, or after we see the abomination that causes desolation in the 3rd temple?

The truth about the Rapture based on scripture

by A Christ Follower - 10/07/14 8:21 AM
I was first given this revelation about three years ago while stuying the word that the whole pre trib thing was false. Clearly in Matthew 24: Jesus left the temple and was walking away when his disciples came up to him to call his attention to its buildings. 2 "Do... more...

Dave, you should try reading The Bible for real, because it says nothing about the age of the earth. It only provides evidence showing that man has existed 6016 years on earth, which may be much older than 6016 years. And who knows, you may discover that you... more...

This date "December Thirty First Two Thousand Sixteen"
=(666+216+2016) seems to also show design similar to the Last day of 2014 and First day of 2015, that have The Flood year encoded(explained further down this thread)

I fully agree with this article. Please everyone don't fall for this Dispensational doctrine of Pre-Tribulation Rapture. The T.V.

His number is Six Hundred Sixty Six = [1590+666+216]

1318+666=[1984] + six.six.six=[1974]


by Drayton Scott Bonyun 1590 - 2/11/14 10:34 PM
The 450 And 666 Code=1590
Eleven Sixteen Code=1116

One Thousand One Hundred Sixteen=450+1590 or 2040*

"Meteor's Are Going To Strike Earth = 2040*

One One One Six = 924[Daniel 9:24 Bible Verse 22013*]

2040 minus 924 = 1116


by DSB 1590 - 2/11/14 10:43 PM
1116 as a number=450+666

In words it =450+1590DSB

In the only other form of words,
one one one six it =924

924 is 450+474

Connecting 474 with my name 1590,
produces the age im at, at the completion of 2013/Jan.1/14

Ivan Panin's N.T. Translation says in Rev.13:18 , "Here Is THE Wisdom, Who Hath Understanding" = [888+1590]

"Let Him Count The Number Of The Beast" = [69+2013]

Eleven Sixteen Code=1116 / The 450 And 666 Code =[1590]

1116 can be written 2 ways:

one thousand one hundred sixteen=[2040]or[450+1590]



[924] + 1116 = [2040]

This whole thing began for me with The 666 in the number set, and finding a year that matched Enochs Rapture year 987, 1995 is "The Only Number"

"1590 This Is A Message From GOD"= [987+1995]

"Message From GOD"= [666+216]
