Light in darkness

I don't believe in a pretrib, post-trib or amillenium. Let me try to nut shell it and for me this is nut shelling it, LOLSorry for labeling you, but I find it fascinating that you are Pre-trib and Amill! How very odd. You are indeed peculiar to hold to both views at the same time. To me the two views are in conflict with one another and are not compatible, so I find it unheard of to be able to hold to two such conflicting views. All Pre-Tribbers that I have met in my life time were either historical premill or the most common and traditional would be Dispensational premill. I honestly find that to be fascinating and interesting I might add that someone holds to pretrib and Amillennialism. Either way makes no difference to me because all in due time, things will happen in ways we never thought. At least that is what I am learning as end times prophecy along with the NWO are progressing, so it should be interesting in its own proper time the revealing of events taking place and unfolding at the right time of course. This will be the what ends the end conflict lol. I know I would love a rapture before your guys’s version of the GT that I don’t ascribe to.
Wouldn’t you say it’s better to be safe than sorry? I know God can protect people from anything and everything as he did with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego?
God protected them on the earth, they never left, neither did Noah and his family, nor did Lot, not even Moses! He even says that in
15My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. 17Sanctify them byd the truth; your word is truth. 18As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. 19For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.
I truly believe that the GT is for Christians to go thru the refining process. I believe we are in the early stages of it now and my mind is absolutely made up about it and it is very unlikely of changing anytime soon. As in the days of Noah and Soddom and Gomorrah. I refuse to be in denial of where we are at now regarding a timeline. Like I said, it sure would be nice for us to escape everything. None of Jesus’ apostles were that lucky. I won’t complain if it does happen, however, it’s just not consistent with scripture. One final judgement, Satan is destroyed once and for all, a new heaven and a new earth is created, death was defeated and we finally get to live with Jesus and be with him for eternity. A life free from sin, pain, and no more tears.
From what I have seen with my own two eyes leads me to believe that it is extremely selfish and self centered to think that the west is some great and special people to escape to heaven while so many unfortunate souls, even now as we speak are being slaughtered like you would not believe because all the fake news is controlled. Go to bestgore.com if you can tolerate seeing people being killed in the most horrific ways possible. Why you ask would I visit such a site? Curiousity of course. I indeed traumatized myself so I was told and I also desensitized myself to the most brutally, ruthlessly without mercy people are being beheaded, beaten to death, stoned to death, burned alive, being tied to the trunk of a vehicle and drving with people trailing behind, stabbings, shootings, you name it, it is happening and most don’t know what is happening in some other places of the world which would make the conflict between Israells and the arabs look like childs play.
But unfortunately the only way to see the brutalities taking place across the world is by those who commit these heinous acts, record them and upload them to the internet. I don’t actually recommend anyone going to that site, but in order to try and make a vaild point as to why I don’t subscribe to Pre-trib theology. That is why.
The word Rapture is not found in scripture as scripture calls it being caught up at the last trump, meaning the seventh trumpet of God, 1 Corinthians 15:51-58; 1Thessalonians 4:13-18, is explained in these verses if you read them for what they say. Rev 14:6-20 is the precursor for the catching up of the saints that makes up the true body of Christ. This is separating the wheat from the tares or in other words saints from sinners as sinners being those who have taken the mark of the beast in Rev 13. Christ is sending the angels to separate the wheat from the tares to protect His own in safety from the seven vial judgments that will take place, Rev 15:1-8; 16:1-21.
After mystery Babylon is revealed and then destroyed, Rev Chapters 17, 18, heaven rejoices her destruction as the beast and false prophet are cast into the lake of fire. It is not until we read in Rev 19 of Christ second coming as we, His Bride, have prepared ourselves, those in the grave and we that are still alive, to be caught up together to the clouds and given our new glorified bodies as we are arrayed in fine linen, clean and white then meet Christ in the air, 1Thessalonians 4:13-18. We are then joined to our Groom (Jesus) for the marriage supper (union) of the Lamb and His Bride. Fine linen means we are now arrayed in Gods righteousness.
Rev Chapters 19, 20 we the saints of God then come down to earth with Him as Jesus plants His feet on the Mount of Olives, Zechariah 14:4, to fight the final battle as He smites the nations and now rules over them. Jesus then binds Satan for a time (I don’t believe in a literal 1000 years, but only being symbolic in numbering) as then he will be loosed for awhile to try and attack the saints of God that are encamped in Gods protection. Jesus will then cast Satan into the lake of fire with the beast and the false prophet that has caused a great falling away, 2Thessalonians 2:3. Then comes Gods final judgment on those who have rejected Christ and they are then cast into the lake of fire for their names were not found written in the Lambs Book of Life, Rev Chapter 20. Heaven and earth are restored and the New Jerusalem is ushered down and we are with the Lord for eternity.
