Thoughts On The Christian Rapture

Posted by soldierservant on November 13, 2007

The rapture is really a confusing issue.I do lean towards the pretrib
rapture,not just because I have been taught that all my life,but because
it makes the most sense.God’s word says that the righteous are not
appointed unto wrath.I believe that the fallen christians will be left
behind.I forget the text now but Jesus said to make sure to be counted
worthy to escape those things to come.In other words those who live
right for God He will take them out of this mess.The antichrist cannot
take over till the true christians are gone.Remember Jesus said that he
gives us power over all the power of the enemy.Jesus also said that we
are the salt of the earth.Why did he call us salt?Because salt
preserves.If the true christians go through the GREAT TRIBULATION then
we are preserving nothing because this world at that time will be a
literal hell.Of course there will be christians in the Great Tribulation
due to either the lukewarm (powerless) or new converts to the faith that
have not bowed or taken the mark.I have heard from several sources about
there being two raptures.I know I have sent you some links in the past.
Perry Stone is good at explaining the end times.He says that the rapture
is the firstfruits.I know there are others that say the opposite about
the tares being gathered first,but that really doesn’t make sense
because Revelation is clear that the wicked will be here towards the
very end of the Great Tribulation when Jesus comes back to slay the
wicked kings and their armies in the battle of Armageddon,so the wicked
will not be taken from this world before christians.Now just because
there may be phonies that try to use this doesn’t deny the validity of
it.They will always take God’s word out of context for their own selfish
agendas.That is how the enemy makes convincing lies by using
halftruths.The only thing that we as christians should be doing to
encourage the rapture is to to reach as many souls as we can and to
continue to walk blameless before Him.We can’t bring about His promise
by starting wars.This is pure nonsense and heresy.This is contrary to
His will.Jesus said that he has come to save the lost,not destroy
them.Christians need to be more indignant towards spirital lies than
mere carnal treachery.I always hear soldiers in this war say that they
love this country so much that they are willing to do anything for
it.This is proof of idolatry.There is no mention about love for
God.Besides even if they truely cared so much about our country then why
are they not opposed to the treacherous scumbags like Bush that are
destroying this country?This country will be destroyed from within,not
from without. They are all liars and hypocrites and will get what they
deserve. Of course we hear all those who defend this scam of a war say
that we must fight treachery and evil wherever it exists.Well besides
our own country everywhere else is run by tyrants and dictators.Iraq is
nothing more special than the evil of Russia.In fact they are the power
behind these terrorists.All these fools are so easily distracted by this
BAIT & SWITCH technique.It seems we will lose just out of pure
stupidity.Just like James Madison said that if tyranny or oppression
ever comes to this nation it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign
enemy.We are our own enemy.This is not to deny the terrorist threat
because it is real,but it is only a symptom of a deeper problem.Just
look at the moral decay of the family structure.The church has had their
part in this too.So many crimes against children are coming from
stepfathers.This is proof that God is not for all this remarriage.There
is so much blasphemy in the church.They spit on the vows to God such as
marriage and treat it like dirt.Even religious leaders divorce their
spouse and say that God told them to in order to marry someone else.Such
a message is not from God,but their father,the devil.This is not just
sin against man but sin against God.To just casually break a vow made to
Him is proof of rebellion against God and His principles.This rampant
blasphemy is conducted by the likes of those on TBN.Also,the whole
public education system is ungodly and corrupting all the youth.Not just
from all the lies they teach but from peer pressure that always leads to
sin as well as bullies.Also all the increase of violence and drugs.I
think they should shut down all the public schools because that is the
biggest waste of taxpayer money ever.They spend endlessly on education
but get nowhere.Who are these idiots that think they know more than God
that they can refuse to teach His word?God’s word is the beginning of
wisdom.It is no wonder that the children come out of school stupid
because they are denied God’s word.What do you expect?We are reaping
what we have sown. God has and always will be the only solution.I am
positive and optimistic in the things of God.I am negative and
pessimistic in anything else aside from God.So positive and negative is
not a mental state but whether or not you choose to obey God determines
which you are.There is hope for those who choose God and only doom for
those who don’t.Those who truly follow God will have His interests at
heart.They will not make excuses for sin,such as the rampant
abortion.They will not ignore blasphemy from within the church.They will
not follow after ungodly leaders as many that claim the faith do.By
their fruits we will now them.It is only the straight and narrow and
much of the church is the broad path that leads to destruction.People
need to flee any church that is not teaching the truth of God’s word or
else they will partake in their judgment.
