I fully believe that this coming seven-year period is a time when God will pour out His wrath onto this world. I explained this in Part 1. As another proof of this, please note that Revelation 5 depicts a scene in heaven where a seven-sealed scroll is introduced. This scroll appears to be something special and at first, it looks like no one is found worthy to open it. John the apostle, who witnesses this scene, breaks down into tears because all seemed hopeless.
What is frustrating is that these reasons have been more than adequately responded to by others. Because the word “Rapture” is not used in the Bible does not mean it is not a true doctrine. You won’t find the word “Trinity” either, but does that mean that God is not three in one?
The Tribulation is another area of controversy. Is there an area of Scripture that is not controversial, we might ask? The Tribulation is described as a period of time – seven years – in which God pours out His wrath onto this world and humanity. He does this for two reasons: 1) to purify Israel and gather to Himself the final Remnant of Jews, and 2) to judge the people of the world for how they have continued to reject Him as God and for how they have treated Israel, the apple of His eye.
