I just felt the need to share some things that may
clarify some confusion and misconceptions about the
age we are in, the timing of the rapture of the church, the tribulation, and the
catching away of tribulation saints at the end of the
Pre -Trib Rapture of the Church : The Dispensation of the
grace of God by grace through faith of Christ
Primarily only inclusive of doctrine taught by the
Apostle Paul in Romans thru Philemon
Accounts of a catching away in the Prophets nor the
Gospels can realistically be claimed to be connected to this
rapture of The Church, the body of Christ.
Paul even claimed this catching away was a mystery,
hidden..possibly never mentioned before.
1 Cor. 15 :51-57
I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we
shall all be changed,
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.
this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this
mortal [must] put on immortality.
when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption,
and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then
shall be brought to pass the saying that is written,
Death is swallowed up in victory.
death, where [is] thy sting? O grave, where [is] thy
sting of death [is] sin; and the strength of sin [is]
thanks [be] to God, which giveth us the victory through
our Lord Jesus Christ.
Rapture of the Tribulation Saints: Gospel of the Kingdom
of Heaven by faith, works and personal righteousness
bearing fruit meet for repentance.
only inclusive of doctrine taught in The Gospels, and
Hebrews thru Revelation
catching away is pertinent to the tribulation period
only, because the Prophets and The Lord Jesus were
addressing Jews, Proselyte converts and Israelites about
the Kingdom of Heaven.
This event must
occur simultanously with the pouring out of God's wrath at
the end of the great tribulation. From these accounts it
Re. 14 : 14-20
"14 And I
looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud
[one] sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a
golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud
voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy
sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap;
for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the
earth; and the earth was reaped.
another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven,
he also having a sharp sickle.
another angel came out from the altar, which had power
over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the
sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and
gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her
grapes are fully ripe.
the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and
gathered the vine of the earth, and cast [it] into the
great winepress of the wrath of God.
the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood
came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles,
by the space of a thousand [and] six hundred furlongs.
"24 Another parable put he forth unto them,
saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man
which sowed good seed in his field:
while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among
the wheat, and went his way.
when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit,
then appeared the tares also.
the servants of the householder came and said unto him,
Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from
whence then hath it tares?
said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants
said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them
he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root
up also the wheat with them.
both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of
harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together
first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them:
but gather the wheat into my barn.
"36 But of that day and hour knoweth no
[man], no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
as the days of Noe [were], so shall also the coming of
the Son of man be.
as in the days that were before the flood they were
eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage,
until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
knew not until the flood came, and took them all away;
so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and
the other left.
[women shall be] grinding at the mill; the one shall be
taken, and the other left.
therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth
