Post Trib Rapture verses From Paul?

Q.  In 2 Thes. 1:6 – 10 we read as follows.

6 Since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you, 7 and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, 8 in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, 10 when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed.

This passage seems very clearly to point to a post trib rapture unless I am missing something glaringly obvious. I have asked many ministers and teachers about this passage and have not really had a satisfactory response, so I was wondering if you would like to have a stab at it.

Why Watch For The Rapture?

Q.  Re:  At An Hour When We Don’t Expect Him.   So, if i am not watching for the rapture that you say is imminent and I have repented of my sins and I know that Jesus died for my sins and paid the debt that I owe, I am not going to be raptured because I’m not watching for it. Is that right?  If I am going to be raptured even if I’m not watching for it, than why should I watch for it as you suggest?

What About Believers Who Have No Bodies?

Q. What about believers whose bodies have been cremated and ashes deposited over the oceans or into the air and whatever particles of dust remain were consumed by animals or fish; or those who have been burned in fires and there is no body; or anything else that that would prevent there being a body to bury? I don’t know how to say this because I do not want to be flippant, but it seems there will be some in the Rapture who will not have a body with which to be reunited. Will God call into being a new body with identical traits as the living counterpart had?

Why Am I Giving To Those Without Need?

Q. This isn’t really a question but a thought. Why should I tithe at my church when the pastors there live in million dollar houses and drive a BMW or Mercedes. Yes, I do know this for a fact. So basically my tithe is supporting their expensive mortgages. These same men turn around and tell all of us to be content with what we have and that having a lot of money is basically evil unless we use it for God’s purpose. Yeah, like supporting their BMW payments.

An Hour When We Don’t Expect Him?

Q. Thank you for the tremendous effort you put into your site.  It is a great blessing and a must read every day.  It seems like every where I read just about every one, that is all born again believers, are expecting the rapture very soon, but the Bible says it will happen at a time when it is not expected . The thought that we might have to wait longer for it to occur is sad, can you please comment.

1000 Years Of Peace?

Q. As always, thank you for your ministry.  It is a shining spot in my day.  I just want to clear something up in my mind regarding the 40 year desolation in Egypt.  I thought that the Millennium was to be a time of peace and prosperity until some time towards the end when Satan is to be let loose for a time.  If that is so, then how will Egypt be made desolate for 40 years at the beginning?

Refuting The Claims Of Unbelievers

Q. How do you respond to claims in books written by unbelievers that there’s no historical evidence for the existence of Jesus and that Christianity is just another version of the savior myths that were part of so many ancient societies?

Can We Lose Our Salvation In Extreme Cases?

Q. I recently presented the view of Hebrews 6 that you discussed in one of your articles but someone suggested that Hebrews 6 is for an extreme circumstance where someone completely throws it back in God’s face and says that they don’t believe anymore and wants nothing to do with God. They suggested that in such a circumstance, it was re-crucifying Christ all over again and they would be beyond salvation. I didn’t say anything because I’ve heard of people who became atheist but ultimately came back to God. I was wondering if there was some solid Scripture to back up either claim?

Overpopulation Problems In Eternity?

Q. Do you think that those who make it through the Tribulation and Millennium will enter eternity in their mortal bodies and thus continue to produce children? If so, wouldn’t the earth eventually become overpopulated and thus the need to colonize other planets? I know it sounds wacky, but it has crossed my mind a couple of times.

Chrislam And the Luciferian Doctrine

Q.  My question is on Revelation 8 & 9  where you say that during the tribulation there will be a doctrine called “Luciferian Doctrine”.  Is that the Chrislam we are seeing formed today?
