More and more people are beginning to realize that the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Theory has no scriptural basis. This is wonderful to hear, for those of us who love the Bible and are horrified by those who twist it. Even better, people are producing books and videos explaining why they have left the pretrib view.
I stumbled over one such video this week, and it encouraged me to dig deeper. My digging uncovered a few more resources for you to look at.
Unfortunately, whenever I do this, I come under Satanic attack. And, this week was no exception.
I really wish that the Pre-Tribulation Rapture wasn’t a Lie. I really do. I wish that we didn’t have to go through three and a half years of extreme persecution. I wish that being a Christian meant that life was a serene experience of clear skies and smooth sailing.
Unfortunately, those of us who wish to live holy and righteous lives in Christ, WILL suffer persecution (2 Tim 3:12). When Paul wrote that to Timothy, he wasn’t thinking of the persecution that you and I have experienced – frowns, disapproval and lost jobs. No, he was referring to the persecution that Christians are experiencing right now in the Arab world – such as with ISIS and Boko Haram.
I did not know about the Nicolas Cage film until after I started this series, and it makes me sick to think that Hollywood has added its weight to this lie. Hollywood has been a purveyor of lies from the beginning, so it should make you suspicious, whenever you find them involved.
But, there’s another movie that I like better, and it speaks the truth to this issue. And, THAT movie stars Pastor Steven Anderson.
