Understanding The Rapture (Part 2)

 Beliefs and Warnings

Below are all the views on the Rapture that I have heard over the years, in all honesty I did not realize that it was so many until I started to list them….This is very disturbing and I am sure that I can’t be the only one who is disturbed by what people are actually starting to believe in….rather than what the bible teaches.

While I know we are not fighting against flesh but against principalities and powers in high places (evil, demonic spirits)….to be listening to them this close to going home to be the Lord is most sorrowing…..

We all stumble and while this subject is NOT a salvation issue….it mayhap strongly needs to be considered a subject of where your faith is placed….I can only hope that at this time your hope and faith rest in the promises of God Almighty…..

Different Scenarios/Beliefs

  1. Unbelief  in the Rapture and the Second Coming, (we just continue on as humans)
  2. Unbelief in the Rapture but has belief in the Second Coming
  3. Belief that both a Rapture and Second Coming has already happened in the past
  4. Belief in a Pre-Tribulation Rapture that happens before the 7 years of Judgement and Wrath and a Second Coming/Second Advent
  5. Belief in a Mid- Tribulation Rapture and Pre-wrath….around the 3 ½ years into the 7 years
  6. Belief in a Post-Tribulation Rapture literally right before the Second Coming of Christ
  7. Belief in a partial Rapture where only the people who are watching and doing good works for God will go and the rest stay behind at the start of 7 years
  8. Belief in 2 Raptures, the first, at the start of the 7 years and the second for the Tribulation Saints at the 3 ½ year mark
  9. Belief in a Pre- Tribulation Rapture but only the Saved people’s children will go in the Rapture instead of all….

And you wonder why people have so many questions and can’t seem to know who is telling the truth?  You wonder why unbelievers don’t trust scriptural prophecies or in Christianity?  You wonder why there are so many different religions and traditions in the world today that are all teaching Christ and Scripture but not teaching Jesus Christ thru His Word?

All because of lack of understanding, belief, and hearing of the Word of God……

Can you not see why this conflicting information and interpretations are causing such frustration, and even hatefulness that are running rampant within the Church?

While I contemplated going into each view as everyone else does……I am being led to do something else…..

You see, the beliefs above speak for themselves and each person knows which one they have faith and belief in; there is also so much information on many other blogs and Youtube I honestly do not feel the need to go into each scenario, instead I felt led to warn you, per scripture, of what is to come IF you do not believe in a Pre-Tribulational Rapture.

Warnings of what is to come……

If there is any one that is unsaved reading this….it is imperative that you receive Jesus as your savior right now; whether it is before the Rapture or after (as this blog will be quickly taken down, however I believe in the power of God and He will always get information to the people who need it.)

Are you willing to bypass this information because you think you can handle what it to come and you are at peace with your belief?

The things that are coming on this world is horrors we have never seen the like in Human history and if you are here for it you will in all probability die and you will be living minute to minute in such terror because you will never know when your last breath will be….whether it will be by people, by nature, by starvation, or by your own heart dying from the stress.

“Men’s heart failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” Luke 21: 26

You may think or make claim I am a doom and gloom person…absolutely not…I am informing you, per the teachings of Jesus Christ, Paul, and the apostles, of a rescue that will come and take us home before all the doom and gloom takes makes…but to not warn people and I mean really warn people about what is about to take place….I would not be doing my service to God.

Every one of God’s people thru out history warned repeatedly of things to come and when some of those things came, people were still caught unaware…..it is why we see watchmen and women all over social media trying to warn and tell people to find Jesus before it’s too late; because there are a lot of people who don’t realize that after the Rapture you may not have but a few moments to find Him before it is too late and you meet your death.

These are only a few of the warnings and the prophecies that are to come….as when I do a blog on the Book of Revelation and the Great Tribulation (if I am still here), I will go into greater detail there.

Dark Days Are Coming

Warning and Prophecy #1

For all of those who do not believe in a Pre-Tribulational Rapture…how you can be at peace right now…..shows you do not comprehend what is going to happen, because if you knew…….you would be so filled with anxiety and fear right now and worry will be growing as you see all these things  in the world starting to play out because……..what is to come really has no human words to give it justice, for it is more than horrendous; more than fearful; more than terror; and far more than just doom and gloom……

“And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life: In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! And at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! For the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.” Deuteronomy 28:66-67

If this is warning to the Jews about the latter days…what makes believers who believe they will be here for such a time so special not to feel this same fear?  To make claim during the Great Tribulation you will be supernaturally protected doesn’t go along with the verses of Scripture that states otherwise for all…

And not one person who is left after the Rapture will be prepared for it…..no, not one person, even the ones who find Jesus as Savior will be prepared for what they will see and experience.

Warning and Prophecy #2

“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” 2 Timothy 3:13

Those of us who believe in a Pre-Tribulational Rapture have a peace of heart…for we know we will be going home soon…but this doesn’t mean our minds are at peace….because we see the truth; we see the false teachings/doctrine, the falling away in the majority of the Body and Bride of Christ…..walking around blind….could we then as servants of Christ really have peace of mind when we see so many not realizing and not believing what is about to happen?

No…..any servant doing what they should would not be at peace right now….because the Holy Spirit within is telling you to get people to Jesus now….not later; NOW….for time is running out, if they have time at all.

If anyone is at peace with any other belief than in a Pre-Trib. Rapture….I strongly urge you to talk to the Holy Spirit….for if you believe you will be here for the worst time in History……how can you be at peace knowing you will be watching your loved ones starving and being tortured so you will conform to government control, and authority in order to get food and medical care….. And soon to be compelled to receive the Mark of the Beast? Your bunkers of food and ammo will not save you; for when I read scripture it warns of terrible times for all those on earth….ALL humans and beasts alike.

Warning and Prophecy #3

You will see such evil manifest quickly and rapidly; As in the days of Noah and Lot….

“And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” Genesis 6:5

“For the day is near, even the day of the LORD is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen.” Ezekiel 30:3

Only when the saved believers are out of the way will ALL wickedness and evilness in the hearts of men be let loose and be revealed as all the goodness will be gone ….but God will still be calling for people to hear Him and accept Him in order to be saved from Hellfire.

Warning and Prophecy #4

*For all those who expect to be here or want to be on this earth during the Great Tribulation and are only looking for the Second Coming and the Rapture (at that time)…Did you realize that there is a warning from God Himself?

“Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? The day of the LORD is darkness, and not light. As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him. Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? Even very dark, and no brightness in it?” Amos 5:18-19

While it’s true Amos was warning Israel…do you think this does not pertain to anyone who desires the Day of the Lord?  God knew there would be people in the Church that would fall away to false teachings and start to believe and actually look for Jesus’ Second Coming and the Tribulation period instead of Looking for Christ before…..(For all that who do not believe in a Pre-Trib Rapture are looking for the Antichrist (Satan) first and Jesus Christ second.)

I also want to make a point here….if this is a warning to not desire the Day of the Lord….does it not have an implication there is another day to desire?

Warning and Prophecy #5

“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my names’ sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.” Matthew 24 9-10

Do you honestly think this will only happen to the Jewish people?  No, it will happen to all who are caught who claim Jesus as their Savior during the Tribulation.  (There will be some who make it thru to the end, but only God knows who that will be and the majority of them will be the Jews who flee from Judaea)

Warning and Prophecy #6

“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.” Matthew 24 21-22

The Church elect are already gone in a Pre-Trib Rapture at this point so the elect here is Israel….yet this verse makes it plain that but for them….no flesh would be saved….including those who are believers during this time frame….but because God is blessing Israel others get the blessing too….

Warning and Prophecy #7

“And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.  The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.” Joel 2:30-31

We are already in the throes of seeing these things…earthquakes are happening in rapid succession all around the world, even in places that are typically not seen….we are seeing volcanoes going off almost every week sometimes days in a row….we are seeing wildfires all over the world with the droughts….and we are seeing wars and rumors of wars…..death is in the news every night…….all of these are just the beginning of what is to come.

Warning and Prophecy #8

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;” 1 Timothy 4:1

“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2 Timothy 4:2-4

We were warned over and over, to stay in scripture and listen to what the Lord says and not to follow seducing spirits who whisper things not of Scripture….we are seeing this running rampant every single day, more people are falling away from things they use to believe because fear, confusion, and pride came in….Scripture cannot contradict the Holy Spirit and vice versa…..Listen, Hear, See…

Warning and Prophecy #9

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” 2 Timothy 3: 1-5

*All forms of wickedness……If you can’t protect your children and loved ones today in this society from schools, laws, internet, social media, movies, and brainwashing….what makes you think you can possibly protect them during the coming perilous times?*

So the question YOU must answer is:  Are you looking for Christ or for Satan? For Mercy or for Self-Glory? For Love or for Wrath? For your Savior or your Martyrdom? For your Rescue or for your Pride? For your Crown of Righteousness or for your Shame?

 “Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall grant me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:8

“That the trial of your faith being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:” 1 Peter 1:7

“Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.” Revelation 3:11

Do not let others lead you astray from the truth….and do not willingly throw you crown at the false teachings/doctrines…for it is the LORD’s crown you are throwing away……..

Does your belief of any scenario really matter?

Honestly….it depends….it does matters to me and other believers of the same because we want people to understand how much Jesus loves us and that we are teaching the truth and we want you to receive the Crown of Righteousness along with us…..(for shouldn’t we love our neighbor and family enough to try to help them receive rewards and gifts from God?)  It does matter to me to see others being led away from the truth and seeing others leading people into more false teachings and doctrines……..

…….But it is always your choice as I, thru Scripture, have given you the truth and information for you to make the choice….and while I shouldn’t matter….God should and your belief does matter to Him.

“That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 1:5-8

In the end….your belief in any of these scenarios depends on what you want to believe matters…….however, it needs to be stressed that you must understand that what we believe, teach, preach, minister, and witness to here on this earth to all, will have to be answered for to God when we receive our rewards…..

You either believe in the promise or you don’t and, regarding this issue….we will soon know the truth because the time is at hand and we are in the beginning of sorrows and if you are truly saved you will be taken in the Rapture whether you believe in it or not, and whether you want to go or not.

My Plea to You

For all those who do not believe in a Pre-Tribulational Rapture I plead with you……..

If you are wrong…….you aren’t able to claim to have had faith in His word, His faith, His love, His mercy, or His fairness, …..you cannot claim you are looking for Him….you instead expect Him to protect you for all the things you do for Him……You cannot even make claim that you misunderstand Him for you have ample warnings….and most of all you cannot claim that you listen to Him.

Don’t be the latter….please….I want you to have as many crowns as possible so that you will not feel ashamed when you are called forward to place your works before Jesus.  I tell you all this because I love you and Jesus Loves you…..Have faith in that Love….have faith in His promises…..Have peace to know you will not have to go thru Hell on this earth because you belong to Him…..

Don’t be one that has fallen away from His Word….

“Now we beseech you brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be no soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, not by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand…..Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that mane of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” 2 Thessalonians 2: 1-3
