#13- Rapture and Tribulation~ BIBLE DOCTRINE 10-6-12

Today we'll say a few things to do with the catching up of the True Church and the seven year Tribulation.

As we think on all the chaotic happenings in the world today, we can't help but realize that they are surely signs of the last days that the Bible describes.


Most country's the world over are having financial problems, some or worse than others, our nation today is the biggest debtor nation in the world, our governmental officials are borrowing millions of dollars hourly and then give it too other countries, their printing money around the clock, more people are on food stamps today that ever have been, manufacturing plants are closing here and going overseas to avoid sky high taxes, this present administration is leading our nation to becoming a socialist nation, wanting to take from the rich and give it too the poor, this is not right, we see the mad man of Iran getting closer too having a nuclear bomb, thinking sending it on Gods chosen people Israel, you would think that after centuries of trying too destroy Israel that they would finally see that God will never allow that to happen, all that have come against His people in the past have went down in defeat and that is the coarse for all Israel's enemies today.

Listen; the world is setting the stage for the Antichrist, he will come on the scene just after the rapture of the True Church and he will be welcomed with open arms as he will have the solution, "or so it will seem" to all these problems.


* He will have a way with words that will be convincing to the earth dwellers, not the True Church; she is with the Lord Jesus.

>>Psalm 55: 21 The words of his mouth were smoother than butter,--


His coming on the scene just after the Rapture of the True Church will not be an accident, let me remind us that what we know as the Tribulation, God refers too as Jacobs trouble, Israel's trouble, not the Church's trouble.

>>Jeremiah 30:7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he {Israel- Jacob} shall be saved out of it.


The Church is caught out of the world in the 4th chapter of the Revelation and is not mentioned again until she returns with Christ in the 19th chapter, and the reason is, the church is not on earth during the tribulation.


There will be a false peace for the first 3 ½ years of the tribulation, Israel will feel secure with the Antichrist promise of protection. And keep in mind, he will not be called the Antichrist, he will be some kind of renowned military man, a political man, he's going too be received with opened arms so to speak, the world is today ready for some one like this as things are getting worse each passing day.

>> Daniel 9: 27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, --

THE MANY is to do with the Islamic country's and the Jews, both are included, -- with many for one week, for seven years.

The ONE WEEK is 7 years, IN THE MIDST OF THE WEEK, means at the 3 1/2 year mark.

He will allow the Jews to worship as they please for 3 ½ years, but then he'll stop them from offering sacrifices; he'll demand that they worship him as God.


Let me say, that for the Antichrist to "confirm the covenant" there must be already in place and agreement in order for him to confirm it.


>> 1 Thessalonians 5: 3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.


Most of us men folks understand little about the mothers too be having labor pains, however, it's really a no brainier to understand that when she truly is about to give her baby birth there is nothing that can stop it, there is no escaping what's about too happen.

This same truth applies in Israel's case, when they are in unwalled villages thinking now at last they are going to have peace and safety the unthinkable happens, it's now 3 ½ years into the seven and now this man of Satan shows his true colors.


>> 2 Thessalonians 2: 1- 12 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, ** 2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, ** as that the day of Christ is at hand.
