"WE WILL "SEE THESE THINGS HAPPENING" BEFORE THE RAPTURE WILL OCCUR......."

Dear Doves,
 
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.
 
Luke 21:28
"Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption (rapture) draws near."
Luke 21:31
"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:
 
Luke 21:20
"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!
