The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Doctrine Is False

"I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil" (Jesus’s prayer John 17:15).

The above prayer of the Lord Jesus could not be clearer and yet some theologians came along in the 1800s and created a false doctrine that is completely opposite of our Lord's prayer in John 17:15. It is the teaching of a pre-tribulation, pre-Antichrist, pre-mark of the Beast rapture of the church to heaven. It sounds nice and is very pleasing to the flesh, but undermines God's purposes for His end-time church. It has created a people who are not prepared to face persecution and the difficult times ahead. It has also robbed a sense of urgency for believers to get themselves ready to give answers to the unsaved during the darkest time in human history. True Christians should want to be here as long as possible in order to win as many to Jesus Christ as possible. This was Paul's conclusion as well when he wrote, The above prayer of the Lord Jesus could not be clearer and yet some theologians came along in the 1800s and created a false doctrine that is completely opposite of our Lord's prayer in John 17:15.

Don't misunderstand what I am saying here. I do believe there will be a rapture or catching away of the true church and I do believe that the rapture and coming of Jesus Christ at Armageddon are two separate events. However, according to what the Apostles Paul & John wrote in the Scriptures, those two events happen on the SAME DAY at the END of the Great Tribulation NOT BEFORE! How do I know this? I know this because this is exactly what Jesus taught in Matthew 24 and John 6. Three times in John 6, the Lord Jesus Christ stated that the resurrection of the righteous will be "...AT THE LAST DAY". He didn't say "the last days" or "before the last days" no... He said, "...THE LAST DAYDon't misunderstand what I am saying here.

"And this is the will of Him that sent Me, that everyone which seeth the Son, and believeth on Him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at THE LAST DAY" (John 6:40). the Apostle Paul wrote that the rapture/resurrection would happen "AT THE LAST TRUMP" and AFTER the Antichrist revealed himself in the rebuilt Jewish Temple (1 Cor. 15:51-53 & 2 Thess. 2).

The idea that "Jesus could at any moment" in a surprise rapture has NEVER been correct teaching. Paul made this clear in 2 Thessalonians 2. Paul stated (by the Holy Ghost) that the coming of Jesus and OUR GATHERING together unto Him WOULD NOT happen until the falling away and the Man of Sin i.e. the Antichris
