"TAKING 'LIBERTIES' WITH THE 'WORD OF GOD'......"

Dear Doves,

To say that that the Lord Jesus Christ saves us, His Church, from 'TRIBULATION' is NOT consistant with what the Scriptures teach us about 'TRIBULATION'. To say that 'The Church' does NOT have 'TRIBULATION IN THE WORLD' ignores the following 'Word of God' that teaches us otherwise about 'TRIBULATION'. We should never be contrary to or ignore the 'Word of God'!

John 16:33
"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. IN THE WORLD YOU WILL HAVE TRIBULATION;..."

2 Corinthians 1:3-4
"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in ALL OUR TRIBULATION,..."

Romans 12:10-11
"Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, PATIENT IN TRIBULATION,..."

Romans 8:35
"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? SHALL TRIBULATION,..."

Romans 5:3
"And not only that, but we also GLORY IN TRIBULATIONS, knowing that TRIBULATION PRODUCES PERSEVERANCE;..."

Acts 14:22
"...We must THROUGH MANY TRIBULATIONS enter the Kingdom of God."

WHO CAN SAY THAT 'THE CHURCH' DOES NOT 'SUFFER TRIBULATION' IN THIS WORLD?


Here is what Scripture teaches us about the 'WRATH OF GOD':

John 3:36
"He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the WRATH OF GOD abides on him."

Colossians 3:6
"Because of these things the WRATH OF GOD is coming upon the sons of disobedience."

1 Thessalonians 5:9
"For God DID NOT APPOINT US TO WRATH, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,"


According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!
