Q. I know that all children under the age of accountability will be taken in the rapture, including children still in the womb. After the rapture, will anymore children be born? I am sure for at least a few years people will carry on as normal. Will everyone be barren during the tribulation?
A. In Matt. 24:19 the Lord said the Great tribulation will be a dreadful time for pregnant women and nursing mothers. That tells us there will be children during the Great Tribulation. Remember, the church will be long gone. Most of the people who are left on Earth won’t know the full extent of what’s coming and will be trying to live as normal a life as possible, believing that things will eventually get better. They won’t know the end of the world is upon them.
Jesus said it will be like the days of Noah when people were eating, drinking, marrying and giving in marriage right up until the flood came and took them all away (Matt. 24:38-39). This is how it will be during the time leading up to the 2nd Coming as well.
