The Catholics removed this commandments!
The Catholic church is full of statues of Mary, saints, crosses, rosseries, etc.

So what? The reverence (not worship) for Mary is a genuinely old practice in the Catholic tradition, going back to the early Fathers. It's a more genuinely Early Christian idea than "the Rapture".

MrMic >> I have done much research in this area but I’m curious, if we the saints of GOD are to rule and reign with Christ for 1000 years of peace, why does your diagram have the Bride of Christ martyred during that time? (Rev. 20.4)
"Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name.” Matthew 24:9.
"For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will. Unless those days had been cut short, NO LIFE would have been saved; but for the sake of ‘the elect’ those days will be cut short.” Matthew 24:21-22.
“Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, "These who are clothed in the white robes, who are they, and where have they come from?" I said to him, "My lord, you know." And he said to me, "These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. For this reason, they are before the throne of God; and they serve Him day and night in His temple; and He who sits on the throne will spread His tabernacle over them.” Revelation 7:13-15.
MrMic >> Also, it looks like you are trying to combine Daniel’s 70th week with the release of Satan after the 1000 years. Satan has obviously not been chained yet, since the Beast and the False Prophet are to be cast into the Lake of Fire first.
MrMic >> I see that you have Elijah, returning after Satan is chained, who is the other Witness, since there are TWO.
MrMic >> When Jesus said, “No one knows the day or the hour” then how can we know exactly when He will return . . .
MrMic >> How can he (Satan) be sealed in the abyss had it not been opened first (Rev. 9)?
MrMic >> One last thought from Rev.13.10: If anyone is destined for captivity, to captivity he goes; if anyone kills with the sword, with the sword he must be killed. Here is the perseverance and the faith of the saints. Hope for the Rapture, but live like there won’t be one.
Tool >> This thread is interesting...the rapture is driving evangelical movements in the USA , to the detriment of world stability and security.
“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be CAUGHT UP [harpazo #726] together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.” 1Thessalonians 4:16-17.
Toolman >> There is a rush to manipulate events in the middle east, as misinterpreted biblical prophesies and passages incite political support, for an administration with their seperate agenda.
Toolman >> The Rapture is a creation by modern ministries.

If Toolman wants to sit there with Flyer and his comrades simply unwilling to believe God, then please take your place among the unbelievers.
Stand with the atheists proclaiming ‘There is no God!’ to their own shame.
Again, if the scoffers wasting valuable archive space with their unbelief cannot write two sentences of commentary
Ostriches might have large drumsticks, but those with their heads jammed into the sand still have no business writing here.
Sacrifice >> Additionally, there are many examples of rapture (pre & post-trib) discussions during later periods – read the document . . .
