Pre-Tribulation Rapture – true or false?

Jesus in the clouds during Rapture

I have been reading more and more about preachers and lay people stating that a Pre-tribulation Rapture is a lie. It is very evident to me that there are a lot of false teachers and wolves in sheep’s clothing trying to convince people Jesus is not coming for them and they will have to go through God’s wrath on earth for those who have no chosen to accept Christ into their hearts. Shame on them! I would not want to be those who have led people astray by their lies and deception when they stand before Christ on Judgment Day! We are living in the age of false prophets more so than ever and it is all because Satan wants to deceive people and keep them from a solid relationship with Christ. Always, always check what others say against God’s Word and always question what you are being told. If it is in the Bible and it is sound teachings – embrace that, but there are many out to deceive you. “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.” 2 Timothy 4:3-4.

How do I know there is going to be a Pre-tribulation Rapture? My Bible has many verses that tell me so. I have over the years questioned the Rapture and the truth of whether Jesus will return for me before the Tribulation, but I am now solid in the belief that He will return for me and the rest of the Church (believers in Christ) before He pours out his wrath on this world that has gone so deep into sin and rebellion against God.

It states in 1 Thessalonians 5:9 – “For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.” If you have accepted Christ into your heart and believe He is who He says he is and repented of your sins – this verse tells us that God hath not appointed you to wrath. The Church has to be removed before the Antichrist can rule – thus all those who believe in Christ will be spared from God’s wrath. DO NOT BE LEFT BEHIND!

* Mark 13:32 – “But of that day and [that] hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.” None of us know what hour God will return for The Church, but His Word tells us He will and gives us signs of what to look for before it happens.

* 1 Thessalonians 5:2 – “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.” A thief in the night – when the Church leaves the earth I am certain many will wonder where people have disappeared to and many may believe UFO’s took us away, but those who thought they were right with God will know and will mourn.

In 1 Thessalonians 1:10 – “And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, [even] Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.” We will meet Jesus in the clouds – rapture means to RISE!

* Luke 21:36 – “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” Is your heart and soul ready for Christ to call you to Him and to save you from the coming wrath of God? Have you been searching and seeking something that will fulfill your life? Christ is the answer – He knows all about you and understands what you have been through – He wants only to help and heal your brokenness!

* Matthew 26:64 – “Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.”

* Matthew 24:27 – “For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”

* Matthew 24:30-41 – “…and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be. “Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one will be left. “Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one will be left.”

* “I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding grain together; one will be taken and the other left.” (Luke 17:34-35)

* Revelation 4:1 – “After this I looked, and, behold, a door [was] opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard [was] as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.”

* Revelation 3:10 – “Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.”

* 1 Corinthians 15:52 – “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed (the Church).”

* Revelation 1:7 – “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they [also] which pierced him: and all kindred’s of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.”

Remember the story of Noah and then of Sodom and Gommorah? These are both times that Luke 17:26-30 talks about – they are both reminders to us that people were given a choice to get on the ark or leave the cities of Sodom and Gommorah, but many did not leave and they went on doing as they had always done, but a flood came and destroyed all on the land except Noah and his family. Again in Sodom and Gommorah many were given the opportunity to leave these cities, but fire and sulfur rained down from heaven because of the rampant sin and turning backs on God was taking place. Two events in the history of this world happened just as the Tribulation will happen. God is calling you to change your heart and mind in regards to HIM – will you ignore his call or will you answer it and turn your life over to Him? Time will soon run out, as it did in both these events and I pray you will change your heart and mind towards God before it is too late.

There will be people who tell you that the Rapture of the Church is not for real, that there is no God or heaven, that you will have to go through the Tribulation – they are lying to you and whatever you do – DO NOT LISTEN – they are false prophets working for Satan to lead you astray and keep you from God! They may mix some Bible verses into the mix and make it sound convincing, but always check what someone says against the Bible – it tells the truth!

Here are three videos by Jack Van Impe about The Rapture and where in the Bible the verses can be found to support that the Rapture is true and will happen and there is a coming day of Tribulation for those left behind!



When did America’s Demise begin?

America was established and patterned after Israel and for many years America was blessed by God. So what happened to our country?

Well, first of all as time passed many attributed America’s achievements to human intelligences rather than God’s blessings and instead of thanking God for His blessings, many ignored his Word, rejected His guidelines, and wanted to go their own way and do it without Him. So the downward journey became a pattern for today and is found in Deuteronomy 8:10-20: “”…when you have eaten and are full, and have built beautiful houses and dwell in them… your heart is lifted up and you forget the Lord your God. … you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gained me this wealth.’
“…if you by any means forget the Lord your God, and follow other gods… you shall surely perish. As the nations which the Lord destroys before you, so you shall perish, because you would not be obedient to the voice of the Lord your God.”

We see this happening in America today and at an alarming rate.

By the early 1960’s, atheistic leaders were banning prayer and Bible reading from the halls of our schools, while humanistic leaders persuaded gullible followers that God was not real, just a myth. But many became disillusioned and found it was unfulfilling and instead of seeking Christ, it created a hunger for supernatural power opening the door to trying anything that might allow them to gain spiritual power.

“You have eaten the fruit of deception… you have depended on your own strength.” Hosea 10:13

In the 1990’s the New Age movement came upon the scene and promised unconditional spiritual power for self-centered seekers. It mixed Eastern mysticism, an inflated view of human potential, and a fascination with a mystical force and it invited gullible seekers to be their own god. By the start of the 1990’s it had desensitized America to occult formulas.

“…the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but wanting to have their ears tickled will turn away their ears from the truth, and will turn aside to myths.” 2 Timothy 4:3-4

“In later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons.” 1 Timothy 4:1

Today on the rise is Neo-paganism and multitudes are trading truth for lies and reality for fantasy, and God’s promises for pagan dreams. Disguised as angels, animal spirits, wise guides, or extraterrestrials – demonic spirits are spreading a welcome message and many are falling for it. It all sounded so good, how can it be false? The scriptures tell us why they are false.

“The whole world is under the sway of the evil one.” 1 John 5:19

“…they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools…. Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator….” Romans 1:18-25

Then we have Babylonions paganism where Biblical morality is despised, banned, or forgotten. The masses imagine new gods or enticing new distortions of the true God. The self-focused spirituality means war against Biblical Christianity. Those who chase the rising tide of promiscuity feel nothing but hatred for the old moral guidelines that protected Americans from destruction for almost 2 centuries and is now corrupting America today.

“‘They have also healed the hurt of My people slightly,
Saying, ‘Peace, peace!’ when there is no peace.
Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination?
No! They were not at all ashamed; nor did they know how to blush.
Therefore they shall fall among those who fall;
At the time I punish them…’ says the Lord.” Jeremiah 6:14-15

“The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth…” 2 Thessalonians 2:9

And finally to global dominion. The Old Testament speaks about times of mass rebellion and idoltry and how God withdrew his protection from the land that He loved.
Numbers 14:9; Mic. 1:11; Isaiah 22:8-9; Deut. 8:6-20, 31:17; Ezra 8:22; 1 Cor. 10:1-11

It is a time where the enemy will enslave the foolish and rebellious people and all the presumed “rights” to free speech, private property, and Christian child raising is ebbing away. But the loss of those rights is only the beginning of what is to come. The earth will be ruled by a global tyrant controlled and empowered by Satan – the Anti-Christ.
“The beast… was given power to make war against the saints… All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast — all whose names have not been written in the book of life… [The second beast] forced everyone… to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark…” Revelation 13:7, 16

No one knows when this will happen, but it will and we are given signs to watch for.
“Learn this parable from the fig tree,” said Jesus after telling His disciples about end time events (wars, famines, persecution, false prophets, lawlessness, apostasy, worldwide evangelism…) “When its branch… puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near, at the very doors… Watch therefore…” Matthew 24:32-33, 42

As long as you follow God – He will bless you with peace. Here are some scripture to back that up:

“These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the fulfillment of the ages has come.” 1 Corinthians 10:6-10
“…the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness…. Professing to be wise, they became fools…. Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves….
“God gave them up to vile passions. …
“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased [depraved] mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness.” Romans 1:18-32
“….there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words
“…if God did not spare the angels who sinned… and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly; and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly… then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment….” 2 Peter 2:1-10

I cannot believe that these various forms of spirituality are truly fulfilling and give those who seek them out true peace and a sense of security. God is the only way to true peace, to true fulfillment, and knowledge that you will be with Him in heaven. There are no other ways to God, no other paths that will get you to heaven, only one way – a straight and narrow path, but one of solid security in who holds your future and truly what a heart seeks – God is able to provide more abundantly than any other source out there. It is never too late to turn from these false paths and gods to seek the one and only true God! He is waiting with open arms to embrace you and welcome you – no other God really welcomes you and loves you – only the God of the universe and all creation can give that!

Unexplained events…could this be signs?

Is God sending a warning to the world that He is not pleased that people are turning their back on Him and they are only thinking of themselves? It is not just happening in America, but all over the world. Some believe in God, but do not truly have a relationship with him. Some are allowing false prophets to direct their paths and leading them away from God. It speaks of this in Matthew 24:24 – “For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.”
“There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.” – Proverbs 14:12
A great turning away will happen in the end times as stated in the Bible – read 2 Timothy 3-17.

This video shows the strange and unusual occurrences that have been taking place all over the world and it does make you stop and think – who is trying to tell us something? I truly believe these are warning signs from God to repent and turn back to Him before he comes like a thief in the night and takes the church home.

Some of what you will see…strange loud sounds in the atmosphere, strange clouds in the sky, unusual colors in the sky, the ocean freezing over in Europe, Beirut River turns blood red, birds falling dead for 2 years in a row in January, massive amounts of herring wash ashore dead, dolphins and turtles are found dead along the banks of oceans and lakes, birds dropping from the sky, large whale appears on a beach with no explanation as to what caused its death, unusual weather in locations that do not typically see snow, more deadly earthquakes, unusual lights or objects floating in the skies overhead, solar flares or tornadoes off the surface of the sun, strange animal behavior, super pods of dolphins, large number of beached dolphins, phenomenal flooding, winter tornadoes, large out of control forest fires, tsunamies, strange halo’s around the sun, dust storms not seen for years, trains carrying large tankers and other military vehicles – large quantities of them in some states in the US, and so much more.

Hosea 4:2-3 –
“2 There is only cursing,[a] lying and murder,
stealing and adultery;
they break all bounds,
and bloodshed follows bloodshed.
3 Because of this the land dries up,
and all who live in it waste away;
the beasts of the field, the birds in the sky
and the fish in the sea are swept away.”

This website gives the signs to look for as the End of Time nears and Christ returns for his Church. Bible prophecy to watch for…it is all happening today! We are living in those times because they are all happening.

Here is the video I speak about above: Strange occurrences around the world in the last couple of years…

I close with this Bible verse and pray for those seeking answers. May God bless you!

“If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14

Are you ready?

The Isaiah 9:10 Judgement…

I watched a DVD called The Isaiah 9:10 Judgement created by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, who leads the largest Messianic Jewish Temple in the USA. He has written a book called “The Harbinger: The Ancient Mystery That Holds the Secret of America’s Future,” which I have not read yet, but hope to soon.

This video made the hair on the back of my neck stand up – the verse Isaiah 9:10 speaks of the judgement of Israel and this man noticed that while he was studying this verse, the attack on America happened on September 11, 2001. He began to note that there was a correlation with what happened and signs he saw around the area of the attack in New York City to what happened to the Israelites back in ancient times and then as time passed he began to put the pieces of the puzzle together and learned that this was God giving America a warning to turn back to God, as he gave the same warning in ancient times to Israel. Rabbi Cahn states, America is following in the same footsteps and making the same mistakes as Israel did and this country is not heeding the warning God is giving to this great nation and its leaders. He walks you through the events that happened on 9/11 and then about the events that happen from that point on and the signs he witnessed, what people said and how it correlates with the 9:10 verse in Isaiah. I was amazed at what this man had to say and how eerily it correlates with what the verse says.

God is warning this great nation of ours to turn back to Him and change and America is not heeding that warning. If you have a chance to watch this amazing DVD – do not hesitate to grab a copy of it – it is a truly eye-opening documentary. I have included in this posting a video of Rabbi Cahn talking with Pat Robertson on the 700 Club and he explains in detail what his book is about, but the DVD delves more into the events and signs that have happened so far and speaks of a final warning that is yet to come. We are living in the era when the final warning will come to be.
