What is the Coming Tribulation All About, Part 20

But also consider this. People who are not ready for an event they have been told about are also “caught off-guard,” which is simply another way of saying that the event comes like a thief in the night. People may be aware of a specific event upcoming. They may know that it is coming, but they allow themselves to become preoccupied with other things and the event they were looking for gets put on the back burner of their mind. They start to focus on other things and lose sight of the importance of maintaining their focus on that one, upcoming, special event.

Theological Problems for Those Who Fail to Grasp Scripture

Folks, as I have said numerous times. It does not matter to me WHEN the Rapture happens. In fact, I might die before it ever occurs. What concerns me is the salvation of those who walk through this life and who do not know Jesus. Our friend has a blog and it appears his entire motivation for that blog has nothing to do with witnessing or evangelizing the lost. His entire blog (as far as I can tell) is to discount the PreTrib Rapture. That’s it. That’s his apparent mission in life, which tells me that he is being disobedient to the Great Commission at the very least.

Time in Which We Live…is it the Tribulation?

Are we in the Tribulation? Not according to my understanding of the Bible, we’re not. If I understand rightly, things are going to get much worse for Israel and the world! Persecution of Christians will also rise. Count on it! But God, in His grace, mercy, and love for all of those who have faith in Him will not give us more than we can handle. He loves us. He cares deeply for us. He knows our weaknesses and our strengths.

What is the Coming Tribulation All About, Part 19

n both cases – the passage from Revelation and the one from Mark, Jesus notes that the people of the house (of Israel) do not know when the master will return and because of that, they should stay awake and prepared. There are many today – mostly in the Preterists and Reformed/Covenant camps who believe that Jesus already returned spiritually in AD 70 when God judged the nation of Israel by causing Roman armies to destroy Jerusalem and the Temple. The problem with this interpretation is that it is simply not Scriptural. Jesus said when He returns, every eye would see Him (Matthew 24), and in Acts 1, the disciples are told (after Jesus is taken up to the clouds physically) that this Jesus would return the very same way, meaning in the clouds and physically.

What is the Coming Tribulation All About, Part 18

This is why books like Revelation are confusing to people. Many do not see the connections from Revelation to Daniel, Ezekiel, or other books of the Bible. We fail to understand that God wrote the entire Bible using roughly 40 human authors over a period of roughly 1,600 to 2,000 years to do it. Yet, it was God who oversaw its writings. It is best to see God’s Word in those terms because it allows us to avoid a great many mistakes.
