The Tribulation Saints Who Missed the Pre-Tribulation Rapture

Pastor Joseph Chambers / Paw Creek Ministries



The rejection and even hatred for the truth of a Pre-Tribulation Rapture has exploded over the church world.


The spirit of apostasy rejects any truth that demands a set apart lifestyle of righteousness. Even the great majority of those that believe in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture have been swayed to think that “Godliness” is not a prerequisite for being part of the Bride. Never in church history until this “Laodicean Age” has sin been coddled and promoted by the very leaders of Christendom. Wake up time could occur any moment when the “left behind” multitude realizes that the Bride of Christ is gone with the Bridegroom.


The Book of Revelation is a literal book and nothing is clearer than the company of Tribulation saints in Revelation Seven. This great multitude will certainly include former heathens, Moslems, and persons of every persuasion but the greatest part will be from the church world of careless church members. Children, young people, and young adults that rejected fundamental truths of purity and separation will be broken-hearted that they missed the Brideship of Christ. The greatest honor on this earth is to be part of the Bride and live in the “New Jerusalem.” The Tribulation saints will not have this honor.


Look at this warning that the church world pays no attention to: “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.” (Revelation 3:15-18) There are no words to make this truth more perfectly evident. Why do the prophesy teachers not warn the lukewarm church world?


No picture in the Book of Revelation is more graphic than this multitude of dying or dead saints, martyred for their faith in Jesus Christ. This vast number is clearly the multitudes that missed the Rapture but repented and became willing sacrifices for Christ. This scene shows up first in Chapters Six almost as soon as the Seven Years of the Great Tribulation begins.


When the Lamb of God had opened the fifth seal, the text tells us what John saw. “I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held…” (Revelation 6:9b)They were physically dead but yet alive. They had been martyred but were now awaiting their resurrection. Their death had been so gruesome that even in this glorious place and clearly beyond the instrument of their death they were pained to remember how they died. John saw and heard as they cried aloud. “And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?” (Revelation 6:10) What a breathtaking Vision.



I know of no place in Scripture where the dead had not forgotten the suffering that preceded their death. But this is the Great Tribulation of which Jesus said, “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” (Saint Matthew 24:21-22) Their death had been horrific. They had been molested, mutilated and finally murdered.


John saw them given “white robes” and told to rest and await as the carnage continued on the earth. These were the first to turn to Jesus Christ and die by the “One World Religious System” and the government powers of the “One World Order”. These already put to death or martyred for their new found surrender could rejoice that death has spared them from the ongoing calamity on earth. John wrote what he saw happen to them. “And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.” (Revelation 6:11)


This drama gives us a picturesque view of the hellish treatment awaiting anyone that misses the Rapture and even thinks to be saved. The cost of discipleship today does not touch the cost of discipleship after the Rapture. The devil will have lost the prize of the “Bride of Christ” he had so determined to destroy. The remnant repenting will be seen as the last vestige of our present effort to warn the world. He will shake his fist at us in heaven while he slaughters our sons and daughters left behind. “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” (Revelation 12:17)


John does not just view their death and the sorrows of such horrible suffering. He sees the triumph also. We move to Chapter Seven and this great multitude that has died is no longer under the altar but caught up to be guest at the wedding supper. They can no longer count on being in the Bride but can be part of the great banquet celebration. They are a multitude from all over the earth. There is no longer a heathen world that has never heard the name of Jesus. Both the lie of Lucifer and the truth of Jesus Christ are known by all the earth’s population.



All nations will know and will be a part of these scenes. “After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.” (Revelation 7:9-10) There will certainly be a great multitude of those that know enough of the Gospel and truth to quickly repent of their unprepared spiritual condition. I believe the vast population of heathens, false religions, and post-Christian churches will now learn the truth and have the privilege for the price of martyrdom for Christ. Do not miss a later scene that John the Revelator saw that we will call “The Guest At the Wedding Supper.”

      From the article:

      “The rejection and even hatred for the truth of a Pre-Tribulation Rapture has exploded over the church world.”

      I wish that were true. The fact is millions of believers have been misled by this doctrine of demons and the sheep are in grave danger because of it.

      If you are a novice Christian, do not fall for the trap of a pre-tribulation rapture. While all hell is literally about to break loose, the trap is thinking you will have an easy way out of it. It is in Satan’s interest to have you fall for this trap. Thinking that Jesus will rapture you out of here before all hell breaks loose will only make you cannon fodder for the Devil and his forces when all hell does break loose. Is the so-called Church ready for martyrdom today? No they are not. They are not ready to stand in their faith against the ravages of the beast. Do not be misled by what someone says the Bible says. Read the Bible for yourself. Read the 24th chapter of Matthew and you’ll see that Jesus comes for the Church after the tribulation period. Read the Book of Revelation and you’ll see that Jesus calls us to a patient and enduring faith during the time of the antichrist. We are entering the time period the Bible warned us about, the time the world of the dead will open its mouth wide for. The body of Christ should be in boot camp bracing and strengthening themselves in the LORD, preparing for all-out war, the war of all wars. But instead, the so-called Church is ill prepared for what will soon envelop the whole world because of this false hope of being raptured out of here before the tribulation period. They are oblivious to the sounds of war in the heavenlies and prepare not for what is about to happen. Because they have not studied the Scriptures, they will be sitting ducks for the enemy to take out. They will fall pitifully short in their destinies, to what God has called them to. And they will not remain firm in their faith until the end, in which case they will lose their salvation. Their blood will be on the heads of these false teachers proclaiming this false hope of a pre-tribulation rapture.

      If you are a novice Christian that has been misled by a false teacher regarding a pre-tribulation rapture, I bid you now to cut out this nonsense of thinking you won’t be here and run, not walk, but run for cover in the shadow of His wings (see Psalm 91) if you expect to endure until the end, whether the end for you is martyrdom or the Second Coming, which occurs at the end of this age at the 7th trumpet.

      For the truth on the rapture, see:

      What a joke. FYI, the ‘end times’ came before 1000-CE, and we are at the end of the ‘thousand years of peace’ (which wasn’t peaceful, either).

      No rapture (a Darby creation that has no bearing on the bible – look up John Nelson Darby, if you want to see the false prophet that gave you ‘Rapture’. If you think you’re getting out of the horrors that are about to come, unscathed, you are sorely mistaken.

      Oh, and there is no Easter or Easter Bunny (actually, that’s a pagan holiday to the goddess Ishtar, goddess of lust and reproduction – who was the goddess of Babylon, who was known by all to be ‘the Whore of Babylon’), and Christ Mass (Christmas) was the over-labeling of the pagan holy day of Yule Tide. Both were arbitrarily made Christian by POPE SIXTUS III (Yes, pope 666 himself) in 365-AD.

      Careful of what you believe and worship – you might just be worshipping the wrong god.

      Well, whether there’s really going to be a Rapture or not, doesn’t concern me. I will die for Christ no problem.. . starve, dehydration or send me to the guillotines, they’ll have to pick the poison, I won’t help them. I give my life for my God, gladly.

      Pretribulation rapture is the lie, there is no such thing but those who believe it may be sucked into following the false messiah, that is how dangerous the doctrine is.

    • Pix

      Rapture = ecstasy, an internal high. Not a literal high of being floated up into the sky, you are being idiotic.
