Luke Chapter 21: 20-31 tells us that before
the rapture occurs, WE WILL "see these
things happening". The rapture will not
happen until we do.
"Now when these things begin to happen,
look up and lift up your heads, because your
redemption (rapture) draws near."
"So you also, when you see these things happening,
know that the Kingdom of God (rapture) is near."
The first thing Luke describes for us to
see happening before our rapture is
the beginning of the great tribulation in Israel:
"But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by
armies, then know that its desolation is near. Then
let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.....
For these are the days of vengeance, that all
things which are written may be fulfilled. ........For there
will be great tribulation in the land......."
Therefore, the Church will be right here on earth to
see the beginning of the great tribulation just
before we are raptured. It does not sound like a
pre-tribulation rapture to me!
Come Lord Jesus!
