The Tribulation will happen after the rapture and be a seven-year period in which the Antichrist will rule.
Why do we say that?
The New Testament tells us that all Church Age believers will be raptured before the Tribulation begins. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 5:1-4, 5:9; 2 Thessalonians 1:6-7; 2:1-8; Romans 11:25-26; Revelation 4:1).
In 1 Thessalonians 4 verses 16 to 18 we learn that the dead in Christ will rise first and then those who are alive and remain shall be caught up meaning raptured to be with the Lord.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 16For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18Therefore comfort one another with these words.
Continuing with the theme in chapter 5 verses 2 to 4 we understand that immediately after the day of the Lord which comes as a thief in the night [the rapture] sudden destruction comes upon all the people that are left behind!
Originally I wanted to post another excerpt from our upcoming book “Considering Wisdom”, but then, this morning, I thought that some Exam Questions from the “Digging Deep into the Revelation of Jesus Christ Exam Booklet to the Study Guide” would be a nice challenge for today.
So here are the 10 questions for
Revelation Chapters 11-13
1. During the Great Tribulation Jerusalem will be under the control of
A. The Russian, Chinese, and Iranian military units B. The Jews C. The Gentiles D. All of the above
Posted from the Exam Booklet to the Study Guide “DIGGING DEEP into THE REVELATION of JESUS CHRIST”
We are excited that the Exam Booklet will be going to print next week! It will be a great supplement to the Revelation Study Guide. With this tool we can test our understanding of the Book of Revelation as we go along in our studies.
Following we are posting the 10 test questions for Chapters 8-10:
In Revelation Chapter 6 each of the four horses with a rider represents the antichrist in a preview of chronological events which will take place over the Seven-year Tribulation Period.
In Revelation 6:2 the white horse previews the antichrist’s beginning phase: – entering to conquer, – imitating the Messiah (Rev. 13:1-3, 13-14; 2 Thess. 2:4, 11; Matt. 24:24) and – coming into power at the beginning of the Tribulation.
Today our post is about a book with the title COUNTERFEIT JESUS by R.P. Amos who lives in Oregon City, Oregon. Randy Amos is an itinerant Bible teacher who has blessed us with his messages and books.
It is a book relevant to today’s times and an eye opener to who the Counterfeit is and how he got his foot in the door to deceive many.
introduction Randy states:
book many authoritative statements are made. The authority for these statements
does not come from some man-made council, some creed of a denominational
headquarters, or a majority vote on certain issues. The authority for the many
statements comes from no less a source than the Holy Scriptures (Bible) which
is the Word of the living God.”
