The Weight of Fear and Wishful Thinking

The PreTrib Rapture doctrine has not only the full power of Hell behind it but the immense weight of fear and wishful thinking…

Some of you believe in a pretrib rapture. if so, what do you do with this scripture?

But in those days AFTER that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars of heaven will fall, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory Then He will send His angels, and gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest part of the earth to the farthest part of heaven.

(Mark 13:24-27)

In Matthew 24, the Disciples asked Jesus “What will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” It was in that context (context is everything) that Jesus answered:

“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”

(Matthew 24:9-14)

Who is the “you” of whom He speaks? Those who see the signs of His coming and the end of the age!

Writing:

“NOW CONCERNING the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and OUR BEING GATHERED TO HIM:” Paul says, “DON’T LET ANYONE DECEIVE YOU in any way. FOR THAT DAY WILL NOT COME UNLESS the apostasy comes first and THE MAN OF LAWLESSNESS IS REVEALED, the son of destruction.”

2 Thessalonians 2

“That day” is the day we are gathered to Jesus!!!

The PreTrib Rapture doctrine has not only the full power of Hell behind it but the immense weight of fear and wishful thinking…

The PreTrib Rapture doctrine has not only the full power of Hell behind it but the immense weight of fear and wishful thinking… No one wants to go through the Tribulation. We do not like to suffer, and we do not want to die… When Hell dropped that heresy on the Church, it had a winner. Whether Scripture supports it or not, the shear weight of fear coupled with wishful thinking will force the eisegesis… Masters of theology took it upon themselves to twist and warp the Scripture until it agreed to relieve their fears and fulfill their innermost desires…

Think about it…

And the Rapture is on…

Tribulation is a promise of God, straight from the lips of Jesus Christ!!

In Matthew 24, the Disciples asked Jesus “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” In that context, speaking of the signs of His coming and of the end of the age… The day in which we live, Jesus answered them, “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake.

Tribulation is a promise of God, straight from the lips of Jesus Christ!

Find me one Scripture, any Scripture that says that the rapture will be pretrib. Pretribbers list a hundred or more Scriptures together (not one of which says that the Rapture is pretrib) and tell us that, if we could read between the lines, we would understand that, although God never actually said that the Rapture happens before the Tribulation, that is only an oversight and He really meant to…

Yes, I saw the movie… The Rapture must happen before any American Christians have to suffer!!!

Wishful Thinking Does Not Make Good Doctrine…

The PreTrib Rapture is the biggest, and quite likely the deadliest Hoax ever to be foisted on the Church of Jesus Christ… Those who have believed it, are not watching because there is, in their minds, nothing to watch for… We are going to be out of here before any of that stuff the Bible takes so much trouble to warn us about happens anyway! If we aren’t going to be here, why watch?

This has opened the Pretribbers to deception, delusion and the fires of Hell…

2 Thessalonians 2:1 NOW CONCERNING the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and OUR BEING GATHERED TO HIM: We ask you, brothers, 2 not to be easily upset in mind or troubled, either by a spirit or by a message or by a letter as if from us, alleging that the Day of the Lord has come. 3 DON’T LET ANYONE DECEIVE YOU in any way. FOR THAT DAY WILL NOT COME UNLESS the apostasy comes first and THE MAN OF LAWLESSNESS IS REVEALED, the son of destruction. 4 He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he sits in God’s sanctuary, publicizing that he himself is God.


NOW CONCERNING… OUR BEING GATHERED TO HIM… DON’T LET ANYONE DECEIVE YOU… FOR THAT DAY WILL NOT COME UNLESS… THE MAN OF LAWLESSNESS IS REVEALED, the son of destruction. 4 He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he sits in God’s sanctuary, publicizing that he himself is God.


…Are you deceived?

…Are you a deceiver?
