Not like this video portrays it. Nowhere in scripture does it indicate that the church will be “caught away” before the Tribulation. Check out ALL of Matthew 24, where Jesus tells us specifically, after the Tribulation of these days. However, just let me say this.. I am homesick, and my heart cries out, “Come quickly LORD JESUS”.
From the Tribulation Network, comes “The Gideon Chronicles”, a novel about the end times, which, I for one, believe we are beginning to see fast approaching, if not already upon- us as Jesus foretold, “The beginning of sorrows”.
I agree with the words of Corrie Ten Boom, Christians have been taught a false doctrine about the “rapture” that’s going to leave them as unprepared for the difficult days ahead, as those people were in Noah’s day, who didn’t heed the warning to repent.
Christians have been lulled into a false sense of security when it comes to the pre-tribulation rapture. Corrie Ten Boom, the famous death camp survivor who helped Jews during WWII said,
“There are some among us teaching there will be no tribulation, that the Christians will be able to escape all this. These are the false teachers that Jesus was warning us to expect in the latter days. Most of them have little knowledge of what is already going on across the world. I have been in countries where the saints are already suffering terrible persecution.
“In China, the Christians were told, “Don’t worry, before the tribulation comes you will be translated – raptured.” Then came a terrible persecution. Millions of Christians were tortured to death. Later I heard a Bishop from China say, sadly,
“We have failed.
We should have made the people strong for persecution,
rather than telling them Jesus would come first.
Tell the people how to be strong in times of persecution,
how to stand when the tribulation comes,
– to stand and not faint.”
I feel I have a divine mandate to go and tell the people of this world that it is possible to be strong in the Lord Jesus Christ. We are in training for the tribulation, but more than sixty percent of the Body of Christ across the world has already entered into the tribulation. There is no way to escape it.
We are next.”
If you are counting on the rapture to escape, please consider the consequences if you get it wrong and “stay behind”. The Tribulation is about the “wrath of Satan” not the “wrath of God”.
