(King James Version 1611 to be exact). This Blog's purpose is to save people to the Lord Jesus Christ who is our only chance at heaven and also educate warn and prepare people for the great times of tribulation we have ahead, Please look through our blogs, share.
Read this entire post it could be a blessing. Here is a Link also detailing Jesus teaching the Rapture - Jesus taught the Rapture
I Have been studying the Pre-tribulation rapture theory for a few months now, and i believe i have enough solid references from scripture to prove! There will be a pre-tribulation rapture that all who believe in Christ will be taken before the tribulations take place on earth.
I Will show even Jesus describing the Pre-Tribulation Rapture in the Book Of Luke, if anyone disagrees i am keen to find out the reason why, but lets look at God's word.
Please read this all the way to the end before saying "its not true"
"And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?" - Luke 21:7
Lets see the things that Jesus said would come in the Book of Luke..
"And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.
But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by." - Luke 21:8-9
Many will come in Christ's name claiming to be him, this has happened a lot recently and am sure will happen more obviously in future times, but none-the-less people today claim to be Jesus Christ, google it.
But the time draweth near so stay away from these false teachers, and we shall hear of wars and commotions, but don't be terrified, these things have to happen, BUT THE END IS NOT, so when were hearing of wars and commotions, the end is not.
"Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.
And it shall turn to you for a testimony.
Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:
For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kins folks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.
And ye shall be hated of all menfor my name's sake." - Luke 21:10-17
What other things will happen in these times?
"Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven."
Wars involving all nations and kingdoms, probably WW3, Earthquakes Famines and fearful sights and signs from the heavens, All these things will be going on NEAR the end, but Jesus said "But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you"
So even before all these things start happening, they will lay their hands on us and persecute us! Jesus went on to say...
"delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.
And it shall turn to you for a testimony."
So one day soon we will be delivered up to the synagogues and put into prisons, because we believe in Jesus Christ as our lord, and they will demand we make a testimony, so we will all be imprisoned before all the tribulations come, and while we are in prisons, we will be summoned to these councils to give a testimony that we believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord.
Now the next words Jesus spoke will give us all confidence in these times
"Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:
For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist."
Telling us to settle in our hearts when we are in prison and alone, and not to plan out what we are going to say to these kings when we stand before them! because when we eventually stand before these courts, Jesus will give us the words to reply to these kings, and they will not be able to gainsay or resist, so they will accept our testimonies and return us to our prisons, Jesus goes on to say more now this must be looked at closely as to not come to a wrong conclusion
"And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kins folks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake."
Clearly saying that in these days, for our faith in Jesus, even our own parents won't stand by us, THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO ALL PEOPLE OBVIOUSLY, but a lot of people's parents who don't believe, will throw down the name of Jesus to remain out of prison, and us who don't throw down Jesus name, we will be hated by all men, For Jesus sake, so this world will hate Jesus, and it also states SOME of you shall they cause to be put to death, so this will not be a mass killing, some countries will kill some people, but these men will raise when Christ comes for the rapture. But most will be in prison and not killed when the rapture happens.
Jesus goes on saying...
"But there shall not an hair of your head perish.
In your patience possess ye your souls.
And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.
Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.
For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled." - Luke 21:18-22
But in the end when God judges all, not a hair on your head shall perish, me personally? whether i live until the rapture or am killed before it, couldn't care less, as long as i am involved!! It goes on to say when Jerusalem is surrounded by armies wanting to attack it, which will be happening soon, then you no the desolation times are coming... so the people of the country will flea out and then the aggressors will take over, and enter in, and these will be the days of vengeance, THAT EVERYTHING WILL BE FULFILLED, so when we see these things happening, know the rapture is near, when were in prison and these things are happening, get ready to leave, tribulation times are coming soon, and if you don't want to sit in prison until the Antichrist comes to kill you, then i would suggest preparing for the rapture!!
In this time talks about the people of Jerusalem AKA Israel...
"But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people.
And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled." - Luke 21:23-24
These times will be getting stressful with the world wars, monetary collapse, famines etc, so it tells us woe unto them with child in that day! i imagine because the child will starve because of famines and no money etc, will be turning in to a desolate and horrible world, and in Israel there will be great distress and wrath upon its people, they will fall by the edge of the sword and be led away captive unto all nations, so they will be shipped to other countries to be held in prisons probably, and then all the nations will be inside Israel and in control until the times are fulfilled.
Christ goes on to describe what else will happen...
"And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
Men's hearts 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 21:25-26
So while we are in prison awaiting the return, there will be signs in the sun moon and stars, and the earth will be in entire distress, again the coming monetary collapses, coming famines, and the wars that will arise from these events, the times are so much nearer than you know, and then when all this is happening, Men's hearts start failing them, because an event will be taking place, in which the powers of heaven will be shaken, and every man will have fear, what event was he talking about? he tells us in the next verse...
"And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory." - Luke 21:27
"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh." - Luke 21:28
So when all the things that we have just examined begin happening, and were in jail, being pulled up to witness for our faith, and then all the wars and bad times etc are going on, then it will happen one day, the lord will come in a cloud with power and great glory, and when these things begin to happen, LOOK UP, and LIFT YOUR HEADS for your redemption draweth nigh, basically saying your redemption is happening soon, but i am here to take you from the troubles which are about to come, then after all the things be done will you get redemption, i know i am adding a lot here it will back itself up soon.
So after Jesus declared he would becoming back in a cloud, and asked every man to look up and lift their heads to see him, because there redemption is near, but not yet, it goes on to tell us that Jesus wanted to give a better description of what he was talking about..
"And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;
When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.
So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.
Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.
Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away." - Luke 21:29-33
Basically saying, when the figs on a fig tree shoot forth, we can tell its summer time, so likewise to that, when the things we've just examined begin happening, you know your rapture is coming and you will be taken away soon, and then Christ assures us that even though we will be taken away, the things written still have to be fulfilled, and heaven and earth will eventually pass away but God's word will never pass away.
"And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares." - Luke 21:34
So in these times, that us Christians should know about, we should not be out getting drunk, and getting caught up with the football basketball, and the cares of this life - IF WE ARE LIKE PEOPLE WHO ACT LIKE THAT, THEN WE WONT BE EXPECTING THE RAPTURE!! - Because quite simply if you see all these things happening, you won't be bothered with sports youl be worrying about being ruptured out of here! so overall its saying here don't get caught up with the world in those times, be aware of the times, and be ready.
"For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth." - Luke 21:35
This day will come sharp and like an ambush, only those being taken in the rapture will be waiting it, the rest and majority of the planet, it will come as a snare, and they will not be expecting it.
"Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man." - Luke 21:36
ULTIMATE PROOF OF PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE FROM JESUS CHRIST -
How to be taken on the Pre-Trib Rapture By Jesus Christ
1. "Watch ye therefore" - Be aware this rapture is going to happen, discern the times and be waiting.
2. "and pray always" - Everyday when you sin, pray and repent, i pray every night and try to pray throughout the day if i sin, i ask gods forgiveness and i repent of the sin and ask him to help me overcome the sin, i believe Jesus teaches here you must pray and ask forgiveness "ALWAYS" just to be sure you will be taken in the rapture.
And if you do these things, Jesus says...
3. "that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass"
Jesus just told you, if you want to escape the real tribulations and the opening of the seals and the trumpets blowing and Gods wrath being poured on the earth, Pray, and Watch.
Jesus in the Book of Luke clearly teaches what it will be like in the day this rapture takes place, So that we can be ready to be taken, and if we obey, and discern the times, and pray always, we will be taken from this earth and avoid the tribulations that this world will face, it will be at this time when Christ raptures us that God will anoint his 2 Holy Witnesses, and they will start Prophesieng for 3 and a half years, and then they will be killed by the Antichrist.
So anyone who says pre-tribulation rapture is not Biblical i would say they are simply ignorant of the facts! God said seek and ye shall find, well a few months ago, i did not believe in this, i thought i would have to struggle and fight the Antichrist and ultimately be killed. But after actually researching it, i have found the pre-trib rapture to be mentioned many times in the bible, and after seeing how clearly Jesus just described it, i think its hard to argue with it.
I really feel like this knowledge is suppressed for a reason, Please get studying this topic further if this is not enough for you to believe in it, just know there is more.
"For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto 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.
Wherefore comfort one another with these words." - 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18
Well here is another great reference to pre-trib rapture, The Lord will descend from heaven, as we heard previously, now we are learning that while we are in prison for our testimonies, the trump will sound, and the dead in Christ shall raise! so if you've been imprisoned and killed for your testimony of Christ, you will be raised at the Rapture, then it tells us after that them which are alive and remain on the earth, currently being persecuted, will be be caught up together in the clouds, notice it says to MEET the Lord Jesus Christ, what a day that rapture will be for those who can discern the times.
The bible even adds at the end, just another confirmation its pre-trib rapture
"Wherefore comfort one another with these words."
Well when I'm in prison waiting for this, i will definitely be comforted with those words!!
And also lets have a look at a comparison Jesus made to this coming of him, and the days of Noah
"But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." - Mathew 24:36-37
Well lets look closely just before we wrap this up, No man knows when the Lord will come for this rapture, but it will be as the days of Noah, it will be the same at the coming of Jesus for the Rapture, the people will be wicked! As Jesus described to us in Luke, we will be in prison rotting for our faith! that's how bad it will be, and what else happened in the days of Noah? God let Noah escape any harm, and then cursed the worlds sin, like Jesus coming for the Rapture, Jesus will take us away to escape harm, and then God will pour his wrath on the Earth.
Bible teaches there will be a Rapture.
CONCLUSION PLEASE READ THIS
How to be taken on the Pre-Trib Rapture By Jesus Christ
"Watch ye therefore" - Be aware this rapture is going to happen, discern the times and be waiting like Noah was aware and was spared.
"and pray always" - Everyday when you sin, pray and repent, i pray every night and try to pray throughout the day if i sin, i ask gods forgiveness and i repent of the sin and ask him to help me overcome the sin, i believe Jesus teaches here you must pray and ask forgiveness "ALWAYS" just to be sure you will be taken in the rapture.
And if you do these things, Jesus says...
"that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass"
I am not 100% on it but i would say if you are not awaiting the rapture or aware of its coming, then you won't be taken, and you will go through the tribulation, but fear not even if that happens, then you will be even more strengthened in your faith and more eager to please the Lord! so when the Antichrist demands you take the mark you will say no with conviction!!
But i ask all people to study this seriously, as it could mean the difference between escaping the Lords wrath like Noah did in the Ark, and suffering in the world like the people who had left Gods word on the back burner.
I am interested on hearing any opinions on the topic and am up for debate about the subject, but i think the scripture tells us as clear as it can, and the arguments that this was a newly discovered theory in the 1800's is not true, its been around since at least the 1st Century AD (source Doc Marquis).
I hope this has helped you and i hope your with me one day soon MEETING the Lord in the air.
