We won’t go through the Tribulation because God doesn’t subject the saved to Wrath. “For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:9
Jesus talking to the Church of Philadelphia
"Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of trial, which shall come upon all the world, to test those who dwell upon the earth." Rev. 3:8-10
Jesus said this after the apostles asked, when will the end come.
“Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to ESCAPE all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.” LUKE 21:36
This came out of the mouth of JESUS.
And I’m sure you are aware of 1 Thes. 4:16-18
Look back to Noah and Lot’s day. Both Noah and Lot lived in very wicked times. God needed to judge this evil. In Noah’s day the whole earth had become evil, and in Soddom and Gahmorra God could’nt even find ONE good person. In both of these accounts God chose to REMOVE the righteous prior to the judjment of the unbelievers.
Here is what awaits the people who don’t get “caught up” with the Lord in the air.
-The economy will crash…Rev 6:6
-every mountian and Island will be moved…Rev 6:14
-Before the Great Tribulation(3.5 years after the Trib.) Silence will fall in heaven for 30 min. because all will be shocked by the Wrath of God…Rev 8:1
-A third of the trees, and green grass will be burned up…Rev 8:7
-Hail and fire mingled with blood will fall to the earth…Rev 8:7
-A comet or astroid the size of a Mountain will hit a ocean…Rev 8:9
-Water will not be drinkable…Rev8:10-11
-Demons will be released from hell not to kill, but to sting them like a scorpion for 5 months, and their sting will be felt for 5 months…rev 9:3-5
-Men will want to die but God won’t let them…Rev 9:6
-100 lb hailstones will fall from the sky…Rev 16:21
-The sea will turn to blood…Rev 8:7-8, 16:21
-If you want to live you will have to take the Mark of the Beast…Rev 13:17
-The Antichrist will rule…Rev 13:12
-A third of the population will die (That’s about 2 billion people!)…Rev 9:18
the list actually goes on and on…
There will be 2 witnesses that will preach the word of God during all of this. They will preach for 3.5 years, and then be killed by the anti-christ. They will lie dead for 3.5 days, then God will give them life. Next they will be Raptued up to heaven in front of the whole world, at that time everyone will know exactly what happened to all of the other people that dissapeared. Please read this for your self in the Bible (Rev. 11:3-13)
When will this happen?
“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:14
We are close.
What is your take on all of this?
Here’s the new thread, references in the John Hagee thread.
- Do you think the CC is the Whore of Babylon?
