Link>>>The Pre tribulation Rapture deception is a false hope that many cling to. Christianity for many has become just another illusion. Salvation is almost effortless, carnality is encouraged and tribulations are shunned.
The Pre tribulation Rapture deception teaches a gathering of God’s Elect before the return of Christ. This is not an option or a possibility, it is a blatant lie.
Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does corruption inherit incorruption. (1 Cor 15:50).
The kingdom of God is wherever Christ is, and He brings this kingdom to us, as opposed to taking us to it.
Luke 22:18 For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.
Those that teach the Pre tribulation Rapture deception , claim that this raptured group is transformed and taken up to heaven, but nothing could be further from the truth.
John 3:13 And no one hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
Nowhere in scripture is it taught that man as a transformed body and spirit is lifted up to Heaven at any time. So obviously the Pre tribulation Rapture deception represents yet another false teaching.
When we are absent from the body, we are present with the Lord (2 Cor 5:8).
1 Cor 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
The timing of when the Elect are changed is obviously at the end of the tribulation period, which has a duration of three and one half years.
Rev 10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets
Rev 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become [the kingdoms] of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
Rev 10:7, refers to Rev 11:15, which is the seventh trumpet. This is also a reference to the last trumpet mentioned in 1Cor 15:52.
The last trump is at the end of The Great Tribulation period on earth, when we shall be changed, and put on incorruption and immortality. The Pre tribulation Rapture deception is a heresy, and is one of many false beliefs adhered to by those who are merely playing church.
Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Our redemption and Salvation are one in the same and are realized upon Christ’s second coming. Where our Lord is, there also is His kingdom. His first coming was to allow for our salvation, and the second will be to bring our salvation.
2 Tim 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the living and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom
The Pre tribulation Rapture deception allows for a certain group to escape the judgment, which is impossible.
1 Thess 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which are dead in Jesus will God bring with him.
The dead in Christ, are the first to put on incorruption and immortality. Contrary to the Pre tribulation Rapture deception teaching, Christ descends from heaven with the elect, He does not take anyone up to Heaven (1 Cor 15:42-53, 1 Thes 4:13-17).
1 Thess 4:16 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
Is it really plausible that Christ would both bring the dead with Him to earth, and then takes those from earth up to heaven? The Pre tribulation Rapture deception story quickly looses credibility in light of the true teachings of Christ Jesus.
Eph 1:10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him.
If we truly were taken to heaven as taught by the Pre tribulation Rapture deception group, Christ would not need to bring anyone to earth.
1 Thess 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the cloud, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
This verse above is the primary one used by those who teach of the Pre tribulation Rapture deception . After the tribulation the Lord returns in a cloud, and all eyes shall see Him (Rev 1:7). There is no secret gathering, Christ only returns once, and it is to be very visible.
Mark 13:24-26 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven (Matt 6:10).
Heb 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
The Words of Truth that Jesus spoke do not allow for the Pre tribulation Rapture deception. This fairy tale is not a part of the Gospel message.
We need to receive His Word in our hearts as well as our minds. As well, it is essential to allow Christ’s Holy Spirit to dwell within us, so as to understand his Word. This indwelling does not automatically happen when we believe in Him.
To claim that all who accept Christ are Born again, is another misguided and deadly deception of the false teachers. To be Born Again, is synonymous with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, and when this gift is received the understanding of the Word of God becomes possible. Once this Holy spirit understanding comes into play, the Pre tribulation Rapture deception is easily recognized as the false teaching of men.
Matt 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
He that endures until the end shall be saved, to teach that Salvation occurs at any other time is also a terribly destructive lie.
1 John 4:13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
The infilling of the Holy Spirit is our….
