Heed Jesus NOT the Rapture Doctrines
The rapture as the Christian church has taught it is the snatching up of God’s people out of the world, out of tribulation before the return of Christ. Actually, theologians teach the rapture in 3 different mindsets or trains of thought, which are “pre-trib” meaning that Christians will be raptured or taken up to heaven before any tribulation, “mid-trib”, which they think that you might be raptured in the middle of tribulation, or “Post-trib” raptured at the end of tribulation. Whatever a church believes or whatever you believe it doesn’t really matter because what Jesus is going to do is according to HIS plan and He is NOT going to waver or change His plan (do to anyone’s opinions). I want to read to you what Jesus did say about His return and the gathering together of His elect. This is found in Matthew chapter 24:29-35 “Immediately AFTER the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. THEN the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will GATHER TOGETHER HIS ELECT from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” If you have read the beginning of Matthew chapter 24 you know Jesus was speaking of all the trials and tribulations that would take place on earth, false prophets arising, pestilences in many places, famine, death, ALL those things that will take place on earth. According to Jesus NO ONE escapes those things, whether you are a godly Christian or worldly, EVERYONE has to go through trial and tribulation, and from the beginning of time until now the last hour people have to go through trials and tribulations and they have to OVERCOME in order to inherit ETERNAL LIFE. The church teaches that no problem will come to it, she thinks that she sits as a god or a queen and that nothing can touch her, she thinks that she can do no wrong, and the church things that she will be raptured before any real tribulation comes upon her. That is NOT what Jesus taught. BUT this self-righteous complex was foretold would be the attitude of the church in the future. I want to read to you what is recorder about the church system, the harlot system in Revelation chapter 18, I’m starting in verse 7, it says; “IN the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, “I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.” The church and the theologians say; “We will not see sorrow because we will be raptured, God will snatch us up by His Son, and we will never have to face trials and tribulations…” That is NOT true, listen to what is written in Revelation, verse 8 “Therefore her plagues will come in one day- death and mourning and famine. And she will be UTTERLY BURNED with FIRE, for strong is the LORD GOD who judges her.” It is NOT just fate that comes to the church, it is GOD HIMSELF who judges the wicked harlot church system because the Christians in church are deceiving the world, telling the whole world that you don’t really have to repent. The Christians in the church say and they deceive the whole world saying that they are saved by God’s grace so they can continue to SIN, they LIE to people. If you read verse 20 it says; “Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!” It is the LORD’S doing, and when we see the smoke of her burning (Rev 18:9) WE have to give glory to the LORD JESUS because HE is the one who brings His judgments upon the wicked. Are you part of the wicked church system that God will judge and bring His torment to? Or will you keep yourself separate from the church, the harlot system that sits as queen and thinks NO trial or tribulation will come to her? Will you keep yourself separate that you may endure through trial and tribulation and fight to the very end for the Lord Jesus, or will you fall into the deceptions of the church and then fall into the judgment that comes upon the great harlot? Keep yourself separate, follow Jesus and endure with HIM to the end and don’t listen to the liars who are in church, the theologians, the pastors, all those false doctrines that give you a FALSE hope and FALSE security. Rather listen to the words of Jesus, you must OVERCOME and you must ENDURE through great trials and tribulations. May the grace of Jesus be with you.
