What if you are wrong about a pre-trib rapture?

What if you are wrong about a pre-trib rapture. What if you are wrong about a pre-trib rapture.

It's just that simple. What is the bottom line. What are the real life consequences of getting that wrong?

If the pre-trib belief system, charts and timing of the tribulation teaching being taught are correct, then we wil all be out of here before the really bad stuff begins to happen. But, if not ... then all of us who belong to Jesus Christ are going into a time of persecution and suffering that Jesus himself warned us about and what the Book of Revelation so vividly describes as being the "martyrs" under the Throne who came out of the great tribulation having not loved their life even unto death, having laid their life down in the faith and testimony to Jesus, refusing to worship a man and take his mark."

"Then they will deliver you up to oppression and will kill you. You will be hated by all of the nations for my name’s sake. Then many will stumble, and will deliver up one another, and will hate one another. Many false prophets will arise and will lead many astray. Because iniquity will be multiplied, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end will be saved. This Good News of the Kingdom will be preached in the whole world for a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come." Matt 24-9-14

"If anyone is to be taken captive, to captivity he goes; if anyone is to be slain with the sword, with the sword must he be slain. Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints." Revelation 13:10

"They overcame him because of the Lamb's blood, and because of the word of their testimony. They didn't love their life, even to death." Revelation 12:11

"After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude, which no man could number, out of every nation and of all tribes, peoples, and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, dressed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands. They cried with a loud voice, saying, "Salvation be to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!" All the angels were standing around the throne, the elders, and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before his throne, and worshiped God, saying, "Amen! Blessing, glory, wisdom, thanksgiving, honor, power, and might, be to our God forever and ever! Amen. One of the elders answered, saying to me, "These who are arrayed in white robes, who are they, and from where did they come?" I told him, "My lord, you know." He said to me, "These are those who came out of the great tribulation. They washed their robes, and made them white in the Lamb's blood. Therefore they are before the throne of God, they serve him day and night in his temple. He who sits on the throne will spread his tabernacle over them. They will never be hungry, neither thirsty any more; neither will the sun beat on them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne shepherds them, and leads them to springs of waters of life. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes." Revelation 7:9-17

"I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus, and for the word of God, and such as didn't worship the beast nor his image, and didn't receive the mark on their forehead and on their hand. They lived, and reigned with Christ for a thousand years." Revelation 20:4

The signs and the facts reveal that the "man of sin" with his coming demand to worship him and take his mark is at the door. The great deception with it's mandated injections or be removed from society and his economy is being put in place world wide right now. Those who think they are going to stop this by voting, marching or violence have not read the book of Revelation and believed it is telling us the truth of how this all works out. They will not overcome him by the arm of the flesh.

So, if you are wrong about the timing of when the Son of God's "parousia" will occur you also will be participating in all the above scriptures. The question then becomes ... are you preparing your heart and life for that possibility?

It would be wise for us all to remember the lesson from the parable of the 10 virgins. Jesus warned us to come prepared by bringing enough of what it takes to walk in the light "late into the night". The reference to night symbolizes darkness, darkness symbolizes evil and all things outside the light of God. Our lamps are to be lit that we may see and so not stumble as we walk in the darkness. There is a great darkness coming on the earth we will need to bring plenty of oil for our lamps to endure well into the night.

“Then the Kingdom of Heaven will be like ten virgins, who took their lamps, and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. Those who were foolish, when they took their lamps, took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. Now while the bridegroom delayed, they all slumbered and slept. But at midnight there was a cry, ‘Behold! The bridegroom is coming! Come out to meet him!’ Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. The foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise answered, saying, ‘What if there isn’t enough for us and you? You go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’ While they went away to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was shut. Afterward the other virgins also came, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us.’ But he answered, ‘Most certainly I tell you, I don’t know you.’ Watch therefore, for you don’t know the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming. (Matt 25:1-13)

Read Foxe's Book of Martyrs for a historical account of the continual waves of persecution upon those who passed this faith down to us and how they responded in that faith. There is a pdf version here.

Watch the historical interviews and sermons of Rev Richard Wurmbrand on youtube. His testimony of overcoming persecution is a gift from heaven showing us the path to walk on.

Let us humble ourselves before God.

Let us go to Him every day. Let us fast when we can and pray often every day. Let us read the scriptures and ask Him for faith to understand the signs. Seeking most of all to have a heart and life that is prepared to hear Him, to love Him and to serve Him, no matter how the timeline unfolds, to the very end. Whether that end is through the death of this body or being "caught up" on that day to meet Him in the clouds!

We should listen to Him! Follow Him! Love Him! Obey Him!
