Dear Doves,
The wrath of God comes upon the earth after the rapture on the 'Day of the Lord' which is the 'Day of His Wrath' just as it was in the days of Noah and Lot:
Romans 1:18
"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness."
Romans 5:9
"Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him."
1 Thessalonians 1:10
"Wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come."
1 Thessalonians 5:9
"For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ."
Revelation 6:17
"For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?"
His Church is able to stand "before the throne and in front of the Lamb" on the great day of His wrath because that is the day we are raptured "out of the great tribulation" a few days after it begins:
Matthew 24:29
"Immediately after that (shortened) tribulation of those days....."
Mark 13:24
"In those days, after that (shortened) tribulation...."
The Verses cited above are Scriptural justification for the pre-wrath rapture position because we are promised to be saved from wrath, delivered from wrath, and not appointed to wrath. On the other hand, (Revelation 2:10) promises that "you will have tribulation ten days". Where is the Scriptural justification for the pre-tribulation rapture position? There isn't any.
According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!
