"All Must Appear"

Dear Doves,

As explained in my previous message, a separation of Christians on the basis of faithfulness occurs in Christ's presence alone at the judgment seat. Scripture says nothing of a separation of this nature occurring at the time of the rapture.

All Christians will appear in Christ's presence to be judged in this manner before the search for One worthy to break the seals of the seven-sealed scroll (Revelation Chapter 5). Only when these seals begin to be broken, will the judgment of the Tribulation begin (Revelation Chapter 6).

Revelation presents the rapture as both all-inclusive and pre-Tribulational. All Christians will be removed together, at the same time; and this will occur before the Tribulation. This is what Scripture has to say. What man says about it is immaterial for Scripture is the source we have been given for truth.

"For we must ALL appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that EVERYONE may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad." II Cor. 5:10

I recommend anyone with a serious interest in this matter read my previous reference to the Judgment Seat and the above link to the Time of the ENd in which the book of Revelation is discussed with Scripture references. The first four chapters of the book of Revelation pertain to the Church at the time of the end and will answer many questions pertaining to the judgment, the Church and the situation at the beginning of the Tribulation.
