I firmly hold and believe that pre-trib is both correct and the only accurate biblical position for the rapture. However, I have a hard time coming to terms with believers after the rapture experiencing God’s wrath along with the world. I know they are tribulation saints but am I missing something?
I have seen several Bible verses and also questions answered here that the Lord will reign from Jerusalem in the millennium or that woman and man will sit in the streets of Jerusalem being old in age. I always believed that an earthquake will destroy the temple and its city. Which is correct?
I understand that the Bride of Christ is referred to as Kings and Priests, my question is does that apply to women? It appears to me that that title would apply to men only as the Bible is gender specific. What role do you think women in the Bride of Christ will have? Will they rule also as “Kings” and “Priests?”
In Rev 1:7 it reads, “Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, and they also who pierced Him.” But in Rev 20:11-15 it reads that the unsaved won’t be raised until the end of the Millennium. Assuming that, “…they also who pierced Him,” were unsaved Jews (or Gentiles) at the time of the crucifixion, then how can they see Him when He comes in the clouds at the 2nd coming?
I was just wondering where in the Bible it talks about King David ruling during the Millennium. You mentioned it in another study and that was the first I’d ever heard of it. Also why would the Third Temple be located in Shiloh? Isn’t Jerusalem God’s capitol on Earth? Thanks in advance and God Bless.
You have stated that everyone who is ‘saved’, has accepted Jesus’ marvelous sacrifice and depends entirely on His finished work for salvation, will be taken in the Rapture, and I agree. My question concerns Luke 21:36 where Jesus says ‘to keep awake and pray always that you may be ACCOUNTED WORTHY to escape all these things and to stand in the presence of the Son of Man”. This seems to say that there is something we have to do to be accounted worthy, would you explain this? Also, do you see a connection between this passage and I Thess. 5:23,24 ?
Why did Jesus speak of raising up those who believe in Him on the last day? Doesn’t the rapture come at least 7 years before the last day? Also, is the New Jerusalem populated only by the Church, or will Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob have residence there. It’s difficult to believe they will live on the new earth but have no permanent home in the Eternal City.
I believe that to go in the rapture you must believe there will be one. How can anyone expect to receive something when they don’t believe it exists? The rapture fighters and non believers will get what they believe in. I pray and hope all will come to believe in the catching away of the saints, but I firmly believe you must believe it to receive it. What say you?
