think at the rapture there will be 3..."
3 type of christians: the true christians who are watching for
the rapture, the true christians who are NOT watching for the
rapture (either the were misled as to the raptures timing or
what it is or they have been misled into believing the rapture
is decades away), and the false christian the one for whom
church is a social club like the PTA, the Elks, or Boy Scouts.
they don't believe in Christ but have not rejected him either
thus they are lukewarm. these christians go to church and are
good people they go to all the pot luck suppers and tithe and
are friendly enough but have no spiritual depth they are CINO's
(Christian In Name Only).
now I believe the first two groups would go with the first group
receiving the crown for loving his appearing because they were
watching. the second group goes but does not get the reward for
watching. the CINO group will be left behind but has a chance at
salvation they have heard the gospel and hopefully have come in
contact with those in the groups going in the rapture and will
have a change to truly come to Christ and stand with him even
how many are saved, of the CINO's, is up for debate since they
never committed to Christ while the true church was on earth
they may still feel no need to do so even though millions of
christians have disappeared. some will obviously commit as Jesus
speaks in revelation of overcomers in each church (the last 4 of
which are still on earth). the odds are against a large number
of these people coming to Christ as they went there whole lives
up to the rapture without really knowing Christ there probably
aren't going to be many compelled to change and they would be
very susceptible to the AC who would speak christian phases and
even bible verses, even satan can and did quote the bible, so
what little they know might work against them. It would be
better for people to have not heard the word since they would
not have knowledge that could be used against them.
I do however feel there will be a huge number who have never
heard the gospel and in many cases taught to disbelieve it who
will come to Christ and will stay faithful even unto death.
("whoever loses his life for my sake shall gain it"). If I could
tell them something I would say face the blade at your
beheading. Look death square in the face and laugh knowing it
has NO power over you.
The tribulation will be the worst time in human history.
Ironically it will also be the time of the greatest
revival/crusade in human history.
