most pre-trib believer seem to satisfy in couple verses from the bible to hold this view. it's logical. but they are oblivious about what bible says about tribulation and second coming as whole message and not just few verses. the rest of bible chapters and letters from apostoles clarify the situation that Lord really does come only after tribulation or revealance of son of perdition. and that christians in book of revelation refuse to take the mark of the beast (which is at time of great tribulations).
but i know pre-trib refuse all these scriptures as any significance to christian rapture, in way or another.
I think this is interesting.... This person says that pre-tribbers use only a couple verses to show that the rapture is pretrib. At the same time...he confuses the rapture with the second coming of our Jesus...They are two separate events! Not one event. If one wants to argue eschatology then one should have his/her facts right?
Not at all David777 There is scripural precedent for being taken out BEFORE the big one....At the end of the great tribulation is not the rapture at all....Its Jesus' second coming.....Two separate events.
I am most definitely Pretrib......Anyone else could look at it this way.....Get ready for the imminent rapture....It's very very close. (I suspect it will occur withing the next couple months since everything lines up now, every prophesy is fulfilled now) If you are ready and are looking for His return you will go....on the other hand, if its midtrib all you have to do is to stay ready...Or post trib.
If you wait to get ready for mid or post trib you may not be ready is it IS Pretrib......Make sense to you?
