7 Reasons to trust the Pre-trib Rapture

7 Reasons to trust the Pre-trib Rapture 

Published on Jan 11, 2016
There are 4 different views about the timing of the Rapture. But which one makes the most sense biblically? Join Dr. Andy Woods as he goes over all the views and gives 7 reasons why the Pre-tribulation view of the Rapture best fits the biblical evidence. Andy is a Lawyer and a professor of Bible and Theology at the College of Biblical Studies in Houston, Texas, USA. He also the Senior pastor of Sugar Land Bible Church.

  1. 30 minutes and 52 seconds into the video: the POPE is the ANTICHRIST!

    1. Ronald Reagan was (CATHOLIC) PUPPET of the Vatican, and ALL US-presidents are!

  2. +It's Ya Girl, Jesus' Wife Thanks for responding!
    I assume you've watched the video.

    1. The 'great tribulation' is the WRONG term for the 'Time of Jacob's Trouble', because this period will be not about the Body of Christ, but about Jacob=Israel concerning the remnant thereof that will be saved when the Lord JESUS returns:

    Zechariah 13:8-9 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
    8 And in all the land, saith the *Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off, and die: but the third shall be left therein.
    9 And I will bring that third part through the fire, and will fine them as the silver is fined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my *Name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people, and they shall say, The *Lord is my God.

    *God's name is 'I am that I am' and in short 'I am' and the name JESUS means 'I am Salvation'.

    He's the LORD (YHWH) that the remnant will recognize as YESHUA, because they are JEWS and Yeshua is the Hebrew name of JESUS.

    1 Corinthians 15:51 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
    51 Behold, I show you a secret thing, We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

    1 Thessalonians 4:15 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
    15 For this say we unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which live, and are remaining in the coming of the Lord, shall not prevent them which sleep.

    People who refuse to believe in the pre-Time of Jacob's Trouble-rapture also refuse to believe that JESUS the JEW, who happens to be GOD, still loves His OWN people, the JEWS, who are still His CHOSEN people, of which He will rescue one third at His 2nd coming.

    This is due to centuries long Roman Catholic BRAINWASHING due to the Roman Catholic antisemitic replacement theology, which false teaching was unfortunately also incorporated in the Protestant eschatology during and after the reformation.

    The big shocker came when Israel re-emerged as a NATION in the year 1948, but then also the LIES came that this wasn't a miracle, but something that was generated by 'the Zionists'.

    Anti-semites blame all evil on 'the Zionists' , while Zion is another name for JERUSALEM and they have fallen into the TRAP of the EVIL JESUITS, who use certain kinds of high placed Jewish people like Henry Kissinger, George Soros and Shimon Peres, Jewish politicians, writers and people of the media and Jewish bankers, so that many people will think that they are the evil ones instead of the JESUITS themselves.

    You say 'Jesus comes after the great tribulation'
    Again: the right term is 'the Time of Jacob's Trouble' and JESUS will indeed come at the end of this seven year long period, for all the world to see, but because many believers don't understand the difference between Israel's Kingdom Gospel and Our Grace Gospel http://ezekiel38rapture.blogspot.nl/2015/07/israels-kingdom-gospel-and-our-grace.html they apply what is meant for Israel, to themselves.

  3. The Body of Christ (the 'church') isn't mentioned anymore AFTER Revelation 3, because the Body of Christ will be GONE to where JESUS is!

    2 Thessalonians 2:6-7 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
    6 And now ye know what withholdeth, that he might be revealed in his time.
    7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he which now withholdeth, shall let till he be taken out of the way.

    2 Thessalonians 2:6-7 World English Bible (WEB)
    6 Now you know what is restraining him, to the end that he may be revealed in his own season. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness already works. Only there is one who restrains now, until he is taken out of the way.

    'he which now withholdeth' or 'one who restrains now' can ONLY be God-the Lord JESUS Himself through the Holy Spirit within the Body of Christ!

    He is RESTRAINING/WITHHOLDING the devil and the Antichrist, and the Antichrist has been disclosed: the PAPACY.

    Satan is behind all evil THROUGH the Vatican: http://ezekiel38rapture.blogspot.nl/2015/04/the-satanic-power-tree.html

    You said: "Before the man of sin is revealed, there will be a great rebellion against God. That is the restraint being removed."

    This is based on a VERY WRONG 'translation' of 2 Thessalonians 2:3

    2 Thessalonians 2:3 Good News Translation (GNT)
    3 Do not let anyone deceive you in any way. For the Day will not come until the final Rebellion takes place and the Wicked One appears, who is destined to hell.

    This is the RIGHT translation:

    2 Thessalonians 2:3 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
    3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a departing first, and that that man of sin be disclosed, even the son of perdition.

    This translation is also good:

    2 Thessalonians 2:3 World English Bible (WEB)
    3 Let no one deceive you in any way. For it will not be, unless the departure comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of destruction

    'the departure' or 'a departing' is something completely different than the ABSURD 'translation' "the final Rebellion takes place".

    Also 'a falling away', as in the KJV1611 is WRONG.

    The DEPARTURE/A DEPARTING is the (pre-Time of Jacob's Trouble) RAPTURE.

  4. 4.
    The big CONFUSION is that many call the Time of Jacob's Trouble 'the Great Tribulation'.

    There has always been tribulation for the Body of Christ, but the Time of Jacob's Trouble will be REALLY something different.

    Asserting that this time is not the WRATH of the LAMB=JESUS=GOD is unbiblical:

    Revelation 6:16 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
    16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the presence of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb.

    Conclusion: people who reject the Biblical teaching of the Pre-Time of Jacob's Trouble-rapture/snatching away of the Saints of the Body of Christ don't love the Jewish people.

    Because they don't love the Jewish people, they also don't really love JESUS the JEW!

    It would be the SAME if I would say that I love you, but that I don't love African-American people!

    Then I would DENY where your ROOTS are: Africa!

    JESUS is a JEW and He will ALWAYS be a JEW, hence we're going to the NEW JERUSALEM!

    JESUS wants to feel AT HOME on the NEW EARTH!

    After His second coming He will be KING of the world from the current Jerusalem in HIS COUNTRY, Israel, for a 1000 years.

    After this period and after the Final Judgement a BRAND NEW Earth in a BRAND NEW UNIVERSE-HEAVEN will REPLACE our current earth and universe.

    But the NAME of the Holy city will be the SAME: JERUSALEM.

    That's because JESUS is a JEW, who happens to be God!

    The ENTIRE Bible is JEWISH, yet non-JEWS always try to turn JESUS into a NON-JEW.

    This will NEVER WORK.

    Please ALLOW JESUS to be a JEW.

    Please learn to be GLAD that JESUS is a JEW!

    Please learn that it's a MIRACLE that JESUS the JEW also loved and loves the NON-JEWS!

    He could have said 'I HATE all the non-JEWS and I will EXTERMINATE them!'.

    Saul was such a person before he became the Apostle Paul and he HATED the fact that JEWS believed in this 'deceiver' YESHUA, who also loved the NON-JEWS, and he wanted to exterminate them all.

    But then JESUS CHANGED HIS MIND and He turned him into OUR Apostle Paul.
    This was the START of the MYSTERIOUS Body of Christ, and again, the Body of Christ will be GONE after Revelation 3.

    I pray that JESUS the JEW will open your eyes!

    'Dear Father, I ask you in JESUS' name to open the eyes of La'Teisha, who has listened to teachers who don't love YOUR JEWISH people, amen'.

    Unfortunately, this does not prove the pre-tribulation rapture... It is just delusional to think any of those scriptures point to a pre-trib rapture, tbh.

    1. The great tribulation is not God's wrath.

    2. This references 1 Thessalonians 4.15 which clearly states "we which are alive and remain until the COMING OF THE LORD..." Jesus comes after the great tribulation.

    3. 2 Thessalonians 2.6-7 does not prove the secret rapture. Before the man of sin is revealed, there will be a great rebellion against God. That is the restraint being removed.

    4. 2 Peter 2.5-9 proves that we will be spared from God's wrath, not tribulation.

    The better term is the pre-Jacob's Trouble-rapture, because after the rapture It's about ISRAEL=JACOB again.

    2 Thessalonians 2:3 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
    3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a departing first, and that that man of sin be disclosed, even the son of perdition.

    departing = the RAPTURE

      +Hans S I've re-read our conversation, but I don't understand what you mean to imply here. Are you trying to say that Paul was the first member of the body of Christ? If so, on what grounds do you dismiss Jesus disciples on the day of Pentecost? Or the 3000 others that were converted on that day? As far as I can tell, until Paul and his first missionary journey, the body of Christ was exclusively Jewish.

    3. +msged2007
      The Body of Christ didn't yet exist before the conversion of Paul and 2nd chapter of Acts and Pentecost has nothing to do with the Body of Christ, but with the Kingdom gospel for the Jews.

      Because you don't make a distinction between the Kingdom gospel for the Jews and the gospel of grace for both Jew and gentile you also don't see the prophetic necessity of the pre-Jacob's Trouble-rapture.

      "Jesus Christ said in Matthew 24:14, "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then the end shall come." Jesus Christ is saying that the gospel of the kingdom will be preached around the world prior to His second coming. He is not saying that the gospel of grace will be preached around the world prior to the rapture. There is a huge difference. Of course we should spread the gospel of grace as much as we can, but that is not what Jesus Christ was prophesying in Matthew 24. He is referring to the gospel of the kingdom being preached during the tribulation. It will be preached by the two witnesses (Revelation 11:3-12) and the 144,000 (Revelation 7:1-8 and 14:1-5), after we Christians have been caught up in the rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). Yet so many well meaning preachers will say, "We have got to spread the gospel so Jesus can come back". Man does not control when our Lord Jesus Christ returns. It is true that we are supposed to spread the gospel, but there is absolutely nothing but a trumpet blast standing between us and our Lord Jesus Christ. The rapture has no prerequisite."

      +Hans S I am sorry sir, but you are sadly mistaken. The body of Christ began way back with our Lord first calling His disciples. The 12 were the original members, and Judas defected, and then the body of Christ expanded to include the Gentiles as well. Read Galatians chapters 1, 2, and 3, as well as Ephesians chapters 2 and 3. ALL of them; the disciples, Paul, the Jewish as well as the Gentile believing congregations scattered all over the Mediterranean then, and now all over the world, are all members of the same one body of Christ. Ephesians 3 is clear; there is one body, and it consists of both Jews and Gentiles. The Jews that exist now are saved under the same one plan of salvation as everyone else on the planet. God does not show partiality (Romans 2)

    4. +msged2007
      A CATHOLIC wouldn't have said it better than you.
      Your theology is as Roman Catholic as can be!

      Only JESUS Himself can convince Catholics that they're wrong and you didn't even read the article.
      Peter received a foretaste of what was to come and that also the gentiles would belong to the Body of Christ, but it wouldn't be Peter who would initiate the Body of Christ but of course JESUS Himself through the SUDDEN conversion of Saul into Paul.
      For the first time the MYSTERY (the SECRET), the Body of Christ is being mentioned, and not by Peter or the other Apostles, but by the SPECIAL Apostle Paul.

      I challenge you to read this article: The Church (the Body of Christ) http://doctrine.org/the-church-the-body-of-christ/


      12:15 AM

      +Hans S The body of Christ began when our Lord Jesus told Peter that "and upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of Hell will not prevail against it." And who made that proclamation? Peter did. The church that exists today began on the day of Pentecost, and the very first members were the disciples.

      As a matter of fact, why then did the Lord send Peter, a Jew, to Cornelius, a Gentile, to give to him what Peter himself received? Can a Gentile be saved under your "Jewish gospel?" Because this one surely was, as it was Peter that led him to the Lord, not Paul. And Philip witnessed to non-Jews (Samaritans and the Ethiopian, Acts 8) BEFORE Paul was even converted, so the Gentile church was already in existence when Paul was converted.

      Your doctrine has caused you to misread the scriptures. You had better go and look again..

    5. +msged2007
      Typical Roman Catholic replacement theology arguments.
      I've never said you are a Catholic, but you don't see how Catholic your way of thinking is.

      That's the problem with Protestantism: it never completely shrugged off the influences of the Roman Catholic church.

      I call Protestants pseudo-Catholics.

      Please read the article: http://doctrine.org/the-church-the-body-of-christ/


      12:42 AM

      +Hans S 1) I am a Christian, not a Catholic.

      2) What passage are you using to refer to the mystery? Please quote the reference.

      And 3) Ephesians 3 plainly shows that there is only 1 group of "God's people" which consists of both Jews and Gentiles, not 2 separate groups with 2 separate plans of salvation. All Jewish believers and all Gentile believers are to be reconciled to God in one body, not two. Your doctrine is in error. Just go read Ephesians 2 and 3; it is as plain as day.

    6. The Body of Christ was revealed after the SUDDEN conversion of Saul into the Apostle Paul.
      The Holy Spirit was already poured out but JESUS used Paul to reveal what had happened and how to see this event in its right context, rightly dividing the word of truth:
      2 Timothy 2:15 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

      15 Study to show thyself approved unto God a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, dividing the word of truth aright.

    Could be, but it's about timing the rapture: pre-trib, mid-trib or post-trib.

    There's only one rapture: the pre-trib.
