Q. I have a few questions I was wondering if you could possibly answer?
1.) does the rapture happen before the anti-Christ appears, or after?
2.) I have asked the Lord to forgive me and my sins, will i be left behind if the rapture happens? do i need to be baptized or go to church in order to be saved from the tribulation?
3.) I’ve heard rumors of military personnel being implanted with microchips with like GPS’s or something like that to help find them if they become POW’s. If I joined the military and got this, would I be damned to hell? Because I thought the mark of the beast means you were swearing loyalty to the anti-Christ?
A. Although no one knows exactly when it will happen, I believe the Rapture will precede the introduction of the anti-Christ.
To be saved from the tribulation you have to admit you’re a sinner, believe that Jesus died for your sins, and ask Him to be your Savior. When you do that, you become part of the Church. Many people like to get baptized afterward because doing so is a public declaration that you’re a believer. Attending a church can be helpful but is not mandatory.
I don’t know if all service personnel are getting chip implants or not. But getting a GPS chip is not the same as taking the mark of the beast. Doing it won’t condemn you to hell.
