"Don't Give Up on the Pre-Tribulation Rapture"

In my series of posts I am doing on "Standing in the Gap", I have been laying the groundwork necessary to understand why the Pre-Tribulation Rapture is solid Biblical theologically.  The critics of the Pre-Trib Rapture are Satanically inspired.  I will explain all of that as soon I complete the "Standing in the Gap" series.  There a few more posts on "Standing in the Gap"
No doctrine is attack so vehemently, so aggressively, so mindlessly, and so vile as is the Pre-Trib Rapture.  These critics are Dominionists (kingdom now people), SDA's, JW's, Mormons, Catholics, Covenant/Reformed Protestant churches.  They always begin their attack by saying Margaret MacDonald, Darby, Scofield, are the cause of this, citing this is an 19th century teaching.  That is a blatant lie.  The early church believed in the Pre-Trib Rapture for three hundred years before Catholicism needed to get the church focused off the RCC because Revelation sounded too close to Rome.  Their style is to attack the messenger first because the message (in this case a Pre-Trib Rapture can't be so easily dismissed. 
Those constantly attacking this site and its host are not serious Bible students when they take out of context and "cherry-pick" passages for which they do not even understand the Greek or Hebrew nuances.  I have shredded Steven "Mark" Wohlberg's effort to place the Rapture at the middle of the 70th week of Daniel.  They function from a position of ignorance.  The so-called "Spiritualist of the Lord" recently, as a week or two ago, called the date for the Rapture.  This comes in spite of the fact that the Bible makes it perfectly clear that none of us knows the day nor the hour.  As I stated previously, they must have heard from upon High or they are full of hot air coming in off the Pacific Ocean.  They sure can pontificate about things with such finality.
But, as I stated, do not give up on the Pre-Tribulation Rapture!
Lot's of Hope coming.
