More from Jim ✞ In Christ Alone

---------- When is The Rapture, And How Does The Tribulation REALLY Work? ---------- I'm not going to go into great detail in this document, but what I am going to do is dispell the lies of Satan and his angels. As you read this, God's Holy Spirit will be telling you that what I am saying is true, and will continue to do so throughout the rest of this document -- please look for the familiar "burning" in your heart, and rest assured, knowing that it's God's Holy Spirit confirming the truth of my words. Please read this document all the way through before jumping to your own conclusions - it most likely doesn't end like you think it will. ---------- First, let's get some definitions down. Rapture = "Resurrection of The Just" = "First Resurrection". ---------- How many resurrections are there? There are *TWO* resurrections... This is the *FIRST* resurrection: ---------- And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. Revelation 20:4-5 ---------- And this is the *SECOND* resurrection: ---------- And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:11-15 ---------- When is the rapture? The bible clearly states that no one knows the exact day or hour of the rapture. ---------- But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. Matthew 24:36 ---------- While we might not know the exact day or the hour, we still know EXACTLY *WHEN* the rapture occurs. So, when is the rapture?!?!?!!! The rapture is *AT* the SECOND COMING of The Lord Jesus Christ. "But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming." ---------- But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. 1 Corinthians 15:20-23 ---------- When is the second coming of The Lord Jesus Christ? Immediately *AFTER* the Tribulation... ---------- Immediately 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 ---------- I was taught the Pre-Tribulation rapture in my early Christian days - I really believed the arguments that these FAKE "Christians" were making, however upon reading the Bible MYSELF, I was always left feeling confused and violated -- nothing I was reading matched their Pre-Tribulation deception. I then started to struggle with some serious issues about my perception of God's character. I always thought - "It's not in God's character to punish his saints - something's not right..." The Holy Spirit of God has opened my eyes to the truth, please allow me to explain how the Tribulation REALLY works. ---------- ALL saints that are alive at the time of the Tribulation will be exposed TO the Tribulation - there will be no Pre-Tribulation rapture. Thus being said, GOD WILL PRESERVE MANY OF HIS MOST LOYAL SAINTS THROUGHOUT THE TRIBULATION - THEY WILL NOT DIE. ---------- Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Revelation 3:10 ---------- This is *WHY* we must "pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass..." Does it make sense NOW? CLEARLY, THERE ARE MANY SAINTS THAT DO NOT DIE IN THE TRIBULATION - MANY WILL BE ALLOWED TO *ESCAPE* THE MANY HORRORS OF THE TRIBULATION! "...escape all these things that shall come to pass..." SOME WILL ESCAPE THEM *ALL*... Not just *SOME* of these things... *ALL* OF THESE THINGS... ---------- 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. Luke 21:36 ---------- Just as God preserved Noah and seven others throughout the flood, and just as God preserved Lot from the destruction of Sodom, God will preserve His most loyal saints throughout the Tribulation - GOD *IS* GOD -- He is powerful enough to preserve you ANYWHERE -- THERE IS NO NEED FOR HIM TO CATCH YOU UP TO HEAVEN. ---------- At this point, you might be wondering "Well then, how does salvation work during the Tribulation, if death and martyrdom are not a requirement?!" Salvation during the Tribulation will take place exactly as it does now - YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN! Do you see how these fake Christians have confused everyone with how salvation works during the Tribulation? NONE OF THEIR LIES MAKE SENSE!!! It doesn't even make sense to remove the church during the Tribulation - WHO WOULD PREACH THE GOSPEL?!?!!!?? So, who will preach the gospel during the Tribulation? *WE WILL* - THE REMNANT -- THE TRUE CHURCH... And we won't be alone - we will ALSO have the help of the 144,000 Children of Israel, the two witnesses, and the angel which speaks every language on Earth, who will preach the everlasting gospel to every nation. ---------- Look, CLEARLY there will be LIVING SAINTS during the Tribulation that ARE CAUGHT UP ALIVE. "Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air..." ---------- 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.Wherefore comfort one another with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 ---------- Yet again, here is even MORE scripture, explicitly stating that not every saint in the Tribulation will die. "We shall not all sleep..." ---------- Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 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. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:50-57 ---------- I believe that the Pre-Tribulation rapture deception is a doctrine of devils, designed to lull Christians into a state of complacency, which encourages them to live unholy lives, in which they do not stop sinning - lives in which they do NOT participate in the great commission or abide in The Lord Jesus Christ. And there is another purpose even more nefarious than the first... I believe that the Pre-Tribulation deception causes Christians to believe that they will not be here during the Tribulation - this causes them to not have to worry about taking the mark of the beast, which will *GREATLY INCREASE* THEIR CHANCES OF TAKING THE MARK DURING THE TRIBULATION!!! *ALL* CHRISTIANS MUST AVOID TAKING THE MARK OF THE BEAST, BECAUSE *ALL* CHRISTIANS WILL BE GOING THROUGH THE TRIBULATION - TO THINK ANYTHING ELSE IS LITERALLY INVITING DAMNATION!!!* *DO NOT TAKE THE MARK - DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING PUT ON OR IN YOUR RIGHT HAND OR FOREHEAD -- HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR FOREHEAD OR YOUR RIGHT HAND!!!* Conversely, if it's *NOT* associated with your *FOREHEAD* or your *RIGHT HAND* - IT *CAN'T BE* THE MARK OF THE BEAST. ---------- And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. Revelation 13:16-18 ---------- Now that you know the truth, you might be wondering just exactly what's going to happen to these FAKE and LIKELY DEMON POSSESSED "Christians" that have taught this dangerous Satanic Pre-Tribulation filth: Since they have ADDED things to the Book of Revelation (a third resurrection), ALL OF THE PLAGUES OF THE REVELATION TO JOHN WILL BE ADDED ONTO THEM. ---------- For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. Revelation 22:18-19 ---------- So how does one become "worthy" to escape the plagues of the Tribulation? YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN, YOU MUST STOP SINNING, YOU MUST OBEY THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AND ABIDE IN HIM - YOU MUST BE HOLY AND LIVE A HOLY LIFE. And obviously, DO NOT TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST. If any of the above things wax worse, then you risk martyrdom, death, or death followed by damnation in the Lake of Fire! Please take heed of my words - BILLIONS UPON BILLIONS OF PEOPLE ARE ABOUT TO DIE AND GO TO HELL; AND BEFORE THEY GO TO HELL, THEY WILL DIE HORRIBLY BLOODY AND VIOLENT SCREAMING DEATHS!!! Do you want to be one of them?! If not, you had best get things in order IMMEDIATELY - THERE IS NO TIME TO SPARE. ---------- Most people calling themselves "Christians" are FAKE Christians - The Holy Spirit of God does not live inside them -- the Bible even warns us about them in the following scripture; ALL OF THESE MOCKERS WILL GO TO THE LAKE OF FIRE -- ANYONE THAT DISAGREES WITH ME IS *NOT* BORN AGAIN -- UNLESS THEY REPENT AND BECOME BORN AGAIN, THEY WILL ALL BE DESTROYED! NONE OF THESE FAKE CHRISTIANS WILL BE CAUGHT UP IN THE RAPTURE - NOT A SINGLE ONE... "...having not the Spirit." ---------- How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. Jude 1:18-19 ---------- Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded. Proverbs 13:13 ---------- And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? Luke 6:46 ---------- And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; Hebrews 5:9 ---------- Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 7:21 ---------- Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. 1 Timothy 5:20 ---------- Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins. Isaiah 58:1 ---------- But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 1 Corinthians 2:15 ---------- Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins. James 5:19-20 ---------- For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:17 ---------- Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame. 1 Corinthians 15:34 ---------- Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 2 Timothy 2:19 ---------- Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die. Ezekiel 18:4 ---------- Born again Christians DO NOT SIN!!! "...whosoever is born of God sinneth not..." If you're still sinning, then it's extremely likely that you're *NOT* actually born again. ---------- We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. 1 John 5:18 ---------- Please try to remember this - anyone that's *NOT* born again goes to Hell by default; repent, and become born again before it's too late!!! ---------- Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. John 3:3 ---------- Stop sinning, or go to the Lake of Fire... ----------
