Post Tribulation Rapture Outline


*For a more in-depth sermon on the Rapture, go to www.deanodle.org and listen to the message The Pre-Trib Rapture Myth


I. Matthew 24 is chronological outline of the signs of the end of the age and the return of Jesus Christ.

A. We know that Matthew 24 is chronological because Jesus said "these are the beginning of sorrows" and proceeded to use the word "then" (which means after this) several times.

B. The Rapture is not mentioned in Matthew 24 until after the "abomination of desolation stands in the holy place" (which is a direct reference to the Antichrist in the rebuilt Jewish Temple) and AFTER verse 29 which says "immediately AFTER the tribulation of those days..." and talks about the angels gathering together God's elect with the sound of a trumpet from one end of heaven to the other."
