The Pre-Trib Rapture Of The Church
Written by Robert Reynolds on March 2, 2019
believe LITERALLY in the pre-trib rapture of the church, and
pre-mil return of Christ to planet earth.
Christ’s Second Coming is in two parts:
first part of the Second Coming is the pre-tribulation “Rapture”
of the universal church, which is His body and bride, before God’s
wrath is poured out during the Great Tribulation, known as Daniel’s
70th Week and the Time of Jacob’s Trouble, in which God will be
primarily dealing with the nation of Israel again.
second part of the Second Coming is
Christ’s visible, literal, personal return after the Tribulation to
set up His visible, literal one thousand year reign on the earth..
John 5v25, 14v1-3; 1 Corinthians 15v50-53; Philippians 3v20; 1
Thessalonians 4v13-18; 2 Thessalonians 1v7-10; Revelation 1v7, 3v10,
reasons why the Church–the body of Christ will NOT go through the
7 year tribulation period.
1-The tribulation period is the time of Jacob’s ( Israel’s
trouble–NOT the church’s–Jeremiah 30v7 AKJB; Alas! for that day is
great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s
trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.
2-There are 2 gospels preached in the tribulation–the gospel of
the kingdom–Matthew 24v14 AKJB; And this gospel of the kingdom shall
be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then
shall the end come.– & the everlasting gospel– Revelation 14v6
AKJB; And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the
everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and
to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
gospel for the church age ( the age in which we live) is the
gospel of the grace of God ( Christ’s death for our sins, burial, &
resurrection–1 Corinthians 15v 3-4 AKJB )–Acts 20v24 AKJB; But none
of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so
that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I
have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace
3-A person can lose salvation during the tribulation–Matthew
AKJB; But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be
the church age the born-again believer is eternally
secure–Romans 8v38-39 AKJB; 38 For I am persuaded, that neither
death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor
things present, nor things to come, 39 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.
4-The sabbath is being kept during the tribulation–Matthew
AKJB; But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on
the sabbath day: —-the church is never told to keep the sabbath.
BIBLE SAYS……….THE SABBATH IS A SIGN BETWEEN GOD AND THE
NATION OF ISRAEL (THE JEWS)………NOT CHRIST AND THE CHURCH
31v16(Authorized King James Bible) Wherefore the children of
Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout
their generations, for a perpetual covenant.
31v17(Authorized King James Bible) It is a sign between me
and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made
heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.
20v20(Authorized King James Bible) And hallow my sabbaths;
and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I
am the LORD your God.
Corinthians 1v22(Authorized King James Bible) For the Jews require
a sign, …
5-The tribulation is a time of God’s wrath– Revelation 6v17
For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to
stand?—John 3v36 AKJB;”…but the wrath of God abideth on
him”.—the church will never face God’s wrath– Romans 5v9 AKJB;
Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved
from wrath through him.– 1 Thessalonians1v10 AKJB; …….even
Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.– 1 Thessalonians
5v9AKJB; For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain
salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
6-The Church is told to look for The Lord Jesus
Thessalonians1:10 AKJB; …And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom
he raised from the dead, even Jesus, — Philippians 3:20 AKJB; For
our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the
Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:–the church is NEVER told to look for
There it is –6 reasons why the Church –the body of Christ will NOT
go through the 7 year tribulation period
