The Rapture here we go. One Rapture Two Raptures Two and a half Raptures? Premillenna, Post millenna, Midtribulation. Christians can't seem to get
along on this subject so here is another way to look at it.
when the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and when the dead in Christ
shall rise first, and 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
forever be with the Lord.
-1st Thessalonians 4:17
This is our being caught up (Raptured) together to be with Christ in the air at His Coming. In order to avoid typing or repeating that whole verse
every time we refer to this great event, we simplify it by calling this “The Rapture!” So when we use this word Rapture, know that 1st
thessalonians chapter 4:17 is what we are referring to. ..Nothing more should be read into it.
The first obvious question about this belief that the Church must be removed before the Tribulation would be, “Why would God want to take the
believers out of the world before the great tribulation?” The most common responses are,
“because God does not want his believers to go through the horrendous Tribulation of that time”
“He has not appointed the Church to wrath”
“He has said He would keep us from the hour of temptation.”
Let’s be the faithful stewards and try/test these reasons by what the Word of God has to say. Does God say that He won’t let the believers go
through any tribulation, whether Great or Small? The only Biblical answer is, No! It is an absolute fact that God nowhere in scripture says believers
will not go through Great Tribulation. So we’ve established that Biblical fact right from the onset. God never “ever” uses that word tribulation
to either say, imply, indicate, or even allude that we won’t go through it. On the contrary, when we search the scriptures (correct Biblical
hermeneutics), and we examine the places where that word is used, and the event spoken of, we see believers are always there! And if believers are
there, that means that the Church is there. Because they are one and the same. God tells us all through scripture that we “will have tribulation”
in this world and we will have trial in this world, but we will overcome it because we are in Christ who is our strength. The Word declares
“Plainly” that tribulation is in fact normal for the believer, not something that we fear or are expect to be taken out of the world from. Great
Tribulation is simply more of what Christians normally have in the world. It’s the normal expectation. Many Theologians understand this truth about
tribulation and believers, and so they attempt to make an artificial distinction by claiming:
“..Yes, True, but in this time, it will be different tribulation, and so God will be merciful and not let us go through that, for he is not going to
beat up on His bride”.
As faithful Christians, the first obvious question is,
Where is the scriptural support for the claim that God won’t allow His believers to go through Great tribulation?
Moreover, where is scriptural support that this tribulation will be different (other than more or greater)?
There is no scripture where God says, “I will let my Church go through tribulation, but not if I add the word Great to it?” That is a addendum by
those who believe this in doctrine, but not prescribed by the Word. This is nothing more than the rationalizations required to justify believing this
theory. There is not one scripture anywhere in which God tells us that He will not let the Church go through Great Tribulation! And the Word of God
being our authority, we should not presume to say it either.
