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?
Some may think my statements are harsh. They are not. God tells us that when such a man is placed in our midst it is “the LORD your God is testing you to know whether you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.” How many listen to men like Steve Fletcher, but fail to listen and the love God?
All of us talked about how things are going in the world and what the Bible seems to say on the subject. We also took the time to emphasize the fact that Christians need to be doing far more than just waiting and watching. We need to be working. This is something that is not emphasized enough.
In both cases, we see that Noah and Lot were in the world. They had to deal with the trials and tribulations of dealing with evil people. Because of it, both Noah’s and Lot’s worlds were difficult. However, in neither case, was what they experienced representative of God’s wrath. In both cases, when God’s wrath poured out onto the earth, both Noah and Lot (along with their families) were kept safe, away from the destructive forces poured out by God.
