"To: Deb"

 
When one reads Revelation, and all the other prophecies of the Tribulation, who in their right mind WOULD NOT want to ESCAPE what will be occurring on earth  ??
 
For years, actually centuries, people have been tried to discourage the belief in the pretribulational rapture by attempting to instill guilt upon those Christians who believe in such a delivery, by shaming them with the "you only want to escape" tactic.
 
I guess they skipped over this verse in the Bible, by Jesus Himself:
 
 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.
 
Pray that we escape ? !  Yes, that is exactly what He tells us to do !
 
Of course Jesus is looking for a heart that desires Him in purity, but that doesn't mean one's brain and common sense can't work too, nor that one should feel a sense of guilt in looking for that Blessed Hope.   ESCAPE,  YES !  Come Lord Jesus !
