In fact, churches all across America have incorporated the pre-tribulation rapture theory into their Statement of Faith Doctrines, and if one should question it, you will be given the cold shoulder. Pastors and congregants have even been forced out of their church denominational positions for daring to speak out against this false unscriptural doctrine.Satan has deceived the masses in Christian American churches, as your megachurch televangelists such as John Hagee and fiction writers such as Jerry Jenkins and Tim Lahaye, Hal Lindsey and many more have made billions of dollars selling this deception to the naive who have bought into this man made deception theology.
The first thing that Jesus told his followers in Matthew'sGospel, Chapter 24 vs. 4 when they asked him "what shall be the sign of thy coming, and the end of the world" was:
"Take heed that no man deceive you."Those who are teaching that you are going to be air lifted and fly away before the antichrist is revealed are deceivers and false teachers. Plain and simple, no ifs, ands or buts. To cut to the chase, the pre-tribulation rapture is never mentioned at all in the scriptures and there is not one single passage that tells any serious Bible reader that the saints of Christ will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air secretly before the tribulation period.
This false teaching constitutes nothing less than replacement theology and changing the Word of God of which there is a stern warning against in Revelation 22:18-19.
To clarify, basically, the gist of the pre-tribulation rapture false doctrine is that Christians will be snatched off the earth in a secret rapture which will occur before the tribulation period. The Book of Revelation is believed by these false teachers promoting this as biblical fact is considered to be a time when God deals with Israel through a wicked one-world leader.
Dispensationalism, which is another false premise which they base their theories on, promotes that God dealt with Israel for sixty nine weeks of years and that the seventieth week known as Daniel's Seventieth Week, is still in the prophetic future. Therefore, it is taught by them that the entire tribulation period, or Daniel's Seventieth Week, is also called "Jacob's Troubles," without any scripture substantiation.
Your pre-tribulation rapture promoters would have you believe that God will deliver them from this time period or Daniel's Seventieth Week, snatch them off to a great wedding party in heaven, taking His Holy Spirit off the earth, and leave Israel to fend for itself without God's Holy Spirit when there is nothing further from the truth. Scripture tells us God's Holy Spirit never leaves the earth. There are several scriptures in the Bible that confirm this but for the purpose of this writing I will use Matthew 28:20 where Jesus himself said "and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen."
Pre-tribulation rapture promoters have invented several dispensations throughout history, thereby introducing a new dispensation in the final seven years and try to convince you that God is only concerned with "natural Israel", and not His church, again without any Biblical substantiation.This is absurb because God's people are always called Christians or saints throughout the Bible and as seen in the Book of Revelation, including the 144,000, or twelve thousand from each of the twelve tribes of Israel.
This feel good theology has become so profound in mainstream Christian evangelical churches that it is now an obsession; and the Christian church for the most part has been deceived with this false teaching in the same manner of any other cultic brainwashing; however, this time, the brainwashing has been done by people in your mainstream evangelical and televangelist's churches, and your internet message boards who have bought into the pre-tribulation rapture lie, and multitudes will be caught off guard and will not be ready to see the tribulation period or Daniel's Seventieth Week that is swiftly coming upon the world and will most likely fall into apostasy with the rest of the mainstream evangelical churches in America who are already deep into apostasy. Jesus himself said in John's Gospel 17:15:
"I pray NOT that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest KEEP THEM FROM THE EVIL."Jesus would be going against His own prayer if a pre-tribulation were true.Paul, the great Jewish Apostle who wrote most of the New Testament, never in all of Scripture promoted or taught a pre-tribulation rapture. He wrote:
We shall be changed at the LAST TRUMP. I Corinth. 15:52.
The last trump is described as the seventh trump in Revelation 10:7 and 11:15-19. Jesus himself places the sign of His coming for his saints on earth immediately after the tribulation of those days in Matthew's Gospel 24:29-31.Paul's words agree with the words of Jesus wherein he also warns when speaking of the Lord coming for his saints:
Let no man deceive you by any means; for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first and that man of sin be revealed, the son of peridition. II Thess. 2:3 The foregoing text of scripture very clearly tells us the antichrist MUST be revealed first, and according to Daniel 9:27, this isn't until the middle of Daniel's Seventieth Week, which means there is no such thing as a pre-tribulation secret rapture.
Again, those promoting a pre-tribulation doctrine are false teachers and deceivers who have fallen away from the truth of God's Word, as the apostasy that Paul warns of is already upon us and time is short. The church has become lukewarm and comfortable and has departed from her first love in favor of seeker friendly, purpose driven, humanistic, wealth and prosperity, New Age, escapism me first teachings.
Jesus himself tells us four times that the Resurrection of the righteous will not happen 'till the LAST DAY in John's Gospel Chapter 6:
1. And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I would lose nothing, BUT SHOULD RAISE IT UP AGAIN AT THE LAST DAY. vs. 39
2. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up AT THE LAST DAY. vs. 40
3. No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him; and I will raise him up AT THE LAST DAY. vs. 44
4. whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life, and I will raise him up AT THE LAST DAY.vs. 54
Paul also writes and agrees with Jesus that the dead in Christ MUST RISE FIRST in I Thess 4:15-17, which we know from the words of Jesus is not until the last day.
"For this we say unto you BY THE WORD OF THE LORD, that we which are alive and remain until THE COMING OF THE LORD shall not prevent them which are asleep.
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."
It can't get much clearer that these words of Jesus and Paul. The Resurrection of the dead in Christ is on the last day and not before the seven year or Daniel's Seventieth Week period. John the Revelator agrees in Revelation 20:4-6 where John tells of the first Resurrection, which is a late event and depicts the tribulation saints who did not take the mark of the beast.
The last day is not until after the tribulation period or Daniel's Seventieth Week and occurs at the Day of the Lord, or Armageddon and the coming of the Lord, when the wrath of God is unleashed on the wicked of this world, at Armageddon, from which the righteous in Christ alive at this time will be delivered from and not before.
