"Another Jesus, another spirit, another gospel" 2 Cor. 11:4 --- Another Rapture?
13 Biblical Facts
Pre-tribulation Rapture is False
The Counterfeit Rapture
ONE: RAPTURE TIMING
Pretribbers cite John 14:1-3, 1 Cor. 15:51-58, 1Thess 4:13-18, as validation of a Pre-Tribulation Rapture.
These passages do declare a rapture event however none of these passages convey a specific time when the rapture will occur in relation to the Tribulation and therefore cannot be used to validate a Pre-Tribulation rapture. To put forth these passages as a biblical basis for the Pre-tribulation Rapture is misleading and deceptive.
Three main passages that Pretribulationists use to justify their position:
"Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe in Me as well. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." John 14:2-3
"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord." 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
"Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." 1 Corinthians 15:51-52
The above passages do not convey the rapture's timing in relation to the wrath of God nor the commencement of the tribulation but only that there will be a rapture of the Church.
