The following is a short excerpt that summarizes the content.
------------------------- Those Left Behind
You have been warned in other articles on
this website that you should completely turn over your life to Jesus now and let
Him bring holiness and righteousness into your life so you won't have to go
through any of the Tribulation. If you ignore these warnings or don't give
it your best effort, you will not be taken to heaven by Jesus in the First
Fruits rapture just before the start of the Tribulation. You will instead
be left behind for refining purposes. This is not a punishment from God,
but instead mandatory discipline and training for positions of leadership in the
millennium kingdom of Christ. This article will show you what will
happen to you during the first 3 1/2 years of the Tribulation. It will
also show you what you must do to please God during this time of extreme
If you watch TV or read the newspapers you have probably
noticed that violence has seemed to increase greatly the last 10-15 years.
Pornography on the Internet has also increased, becoming a multi-million dollar
industry. Murders, robberies, assaults, sexual predators and child
molesters seem to make the news almost nightly and corporations are bending the
rules to make a bigger profit. When will it all end?
won't. The increase of sin is one of the major reasons that God will send
the Tribulation upon mankind. This will be a time of testing to wake up
the world that all mankind needs to look up to God and recognize and honor

Tribulation. However, most of mankind is not looking to
Back to the
First Fruits rapture. Although the percentage of Christians taken to heaven by
the First Fruits rapture will be a small percentage of the total number of
believers in the world, this count could still be in the millions (There are
about two billion Christians in the world today).
Antichrist will have a slick answer as to what happened to the millions of
Christians that simply disappear. Whatever the answer, most people will
believe it. All will be deceived except the Main Harvest Christians that
are left behind to be tested by God. Because they will have been
warned just before the Tribulation starts that only the most faithful
Christians will be raptured to heaven those left behind will know by God's Holy
Spirit that things are going to get very difficult for them.
know at the start of the Tribulation that they will need to pray and look to
almighty God for help during this period of testing. They will know that
the Antichrist will persecute, torture and kill a great many of them. See
And when he had opened the
fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word
of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice,
saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our
blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one
of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little
season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be
killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
If you are imprisoned or
are about to be tortured or to be put to death during the Tribulation, you must
solely rely upon God for His help.
