The Rapture Question?

Written by Dene McGriff

Continued from page 1

We need to seerepparttar clear teaching ofrepparttar 143278 Bible on this issue. There is no justification for two raptures. The plain reading ofrepparttar 143279 Bible can only bring one to a single conclusion. There isrepparttar 143280 final trumpet,repparttar 143281 Lord returns inrepparttar 143282 clouds andrepparttar 143283 church meets Him inrepparttar 143284 air. The main argument forrepparttar 143285 pre-trib position is thatrepparttar 143286 church is “not appointed to wrath.” (I Thess. 5:9) They are absolutely correct. The problem is that they don’t understandrepparttar 143287 timing of events in Revelation. They also don’t understand thatrepparttar 143288 church is alwaysrepparttar 143289 object of wrath ofrepparttar 143290 world andrepparttar 143291 “enemy” – although, we agree, neverrepparttar 143292 recipient of God’s wrath.

Their failure to understand this distinction has led them into systematized error. If you look on Google or go to your local “Christian Bookstore”, you will see hundreds of books onrepparttar 143293 pre-trib rapture. What began as a little seed has grown to a huge tree with hundreds of oblique explanations for this false doctrine. The fact that proponents say there are people saved called “tribulation saints” afterrepparttar 143294 church is raptured begsrepparttar 143295 question, why is God allowing them to suffer? What is different between them and me other than timing?

Why is this important?
