If Luke 21:35, 36 is what you base your rapture theory on then you have no grounds to stand on. Jesus went to the garden and prayed the same payer three times, if it be possible let this cup pass not My will but thin will be done. Do you think that Jesus was so unworthy that He should not escape? You see Jesus was worthy of escape He was sinless, but the so called church today is not worthy of escape, and this RAPTURE THEORY that she has adopted proves it.
This RAPTURE THEORY, what it really boils down to is that the church is saying
I AM BETTER THAN JESUS WAS, I DON’T HAVE TO SUFFER FOR HIS NAME SAKE. This along makes the church unworthy of escape. HE SAID PRAY THAT YOU MAY BE ACCOUNTED WORTHY OF ESCAPE, HE DID NOT SAT THAT YOU WOULD ESCAPE:
Ecclesiastes 12 9And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs. 10The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth. 11The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd. 12And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. 13Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 14For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
(It would be better if we let GOD be the father of our words and not ourselves.)
2 Timothy 2: 15Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 16But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. 17And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; 18Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some. 15Study to show thyself approved unto God, not rightly adding to or taking away from the word of truth, but rightly dividing the word of truth.
When the man of sin setup in the temple of GOD proclaiming to be GOD and proclaiming peace and safety, some that are looking for an escape (Pre tribulation rapture) will recognizes him and say the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some, like Hymenaeus and Philetus did in 2Timothy 2:17, 18 In other words a falling away.. Are you going to be one of these people like Hymenaeus and Philetus or maybe like the ones below? Read on
First off I would like you to give me scripture and verse where it says that we are going to Heaven. (Can you do this without adding words to the bible or twisting the word of GOD?)
Psalm 37 11But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
Matthew 5 5Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
To many people are reading between the lines and adding to scripture and taking away from scripture and making it to say what they wont it to say just so they can justify the sin they are in.
Second: I would like you to give me scripture and verse where it says the word rapture. (Can you do this without adding words to the bible or twisting the word of GOD?)
Deuteronomy 4 2Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.
The Bible says in Revelation 22 7Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. 8And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which showed me these things. 9Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. Revelation 22 18For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
Third: the LORD said in Matthew 24 4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no men deceive you. 5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
People are reading web pages and thinking that all they have to do is kick back and wait on the Pre tribulation rapture. Many come in the name of Jesus preaching that He is the Christ and are deceiving many.
What if JUST what if the church does have to go through tribulation? Does that mean that the ones that are waiting on the pre tribulation rapture will run to the man on sin as their god? Could this be the falling away that Paul was talking about in
2 Thessalonians 2 1Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
When the man of sin comes and setup in the temple of God proclaiming to be GOD and proclaiming peace and safety, most of those that are looking for an escape (Pre tribulation rapture) will see him and thank he is their GOD they have been waiting on, Because he is here before the tribulation starts, not realizing he is here to kick the great tribulation off and surly run to him as their god. In other words a falling away.
We need to get back to the word of GOD and read it for just what it says like it says to in Isaiah 28 9Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. 10For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
Matthew 7 13Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
The abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, is the man of sin setting in the temple of GOD proclaiming to be GOD and proclaiming peace and safety
Matthew 24: 24For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. It is not possible, to deceive the very elect.
Matthew 24: 29Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
6: And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. TIME FRAME, HE IS BEING RESTRAINED BY A TIME FRAME.
7: For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. The time frame is past.
8: And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: When the time comes for him to be revealed then it will happen.
The only logical thing to restrain the man of sin the son of perdition; is a TIME FRAME. Verse 7 is interesting as it says that the restrainer will be taken out of the way. This means he will be reviled in his time.
Verse 9 starts off saying Even him whose coming. I believe it to be talking about the LORD’S return is after the working of Satan.
9: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10: And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11: And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: I believe this Rapture theory is a strong delusion from GOD that caused you to believe in the lie.
12: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
