The false teaching of the body of Christ having to endure the tribulation period
This is an awesome letter my brother in Christ, Tom Gaston Rapturetj@comcast.net, wrote to a foolish woman who continues to spread FALSE doctrine about the church having to endure the tribulation period.
You are in gross error doctrinally lady! The Church is already saved, justified, and sanctified by the blooded of Jesus ( Heb. 10:14; 1Peter 1:18,19; Rom.5:1,2, 5:9; 1Cor.6:11 ), and sealed by the Holy Spirit until Christ comes to get His Church which He purchased ( 2Cor. 1:22; 5:Eph. 1:13, 4:30 ). The Church is NOT under any condemnation whatsoever ( Rom. 8:1).
The Church does NOT need to be exposed to God's judgments because His judgments are reserved for the Wicked ( Job 21:30; Rom. 1:18; 2Thess. 2:10-12; ). The Church is NOT wicked, but righteousbefore God who imputed and gave to each member of the body of Christ His own righteousness when they believed and trusted in His Son Jesus Christ. Therefore every member of the body of Christ is just as righteous as God is in "spirit" before His eyes by having received God's own righteousness at the time of their conversion ( Rom. 3:21-24; 1Cor. 1:30; 2 Cor. 5:21).
The Scriptures are very clear that the Church will never be appointed nor exposed to any of God'swrath whatsoever which is reserved for theunbelieving wicked of this world who will be left behind at the time of the Rapture of the Church ( Rom. 5:9; 1Thess. 1:10, 5:9 ). You don't have "one Scriptural leg" to stand on with your distorted view and lack of understanding of so much doctrine. Not only the doctrine of "salvation by grace through faith in Christ alone ( Eph. 2:8-10), but you are also very screwed up in the study of Biblical Eschatology ( the study of prophecy ). And frankly your understanding of "sound doctrine" as a whole istotally missing from your life!
You are a dangerous person doctrinally to other young christians who are new born babes in THE FAITH which you are grossly misleading!
To the church of God which is at Corinth, to thosewho have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, saints by calling, with all who in every place call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus, that in everything you were enriched in Him, in all speech and all knowledge, even as the testimony concerning Christ was confirmed in you, so that you are not lacking in any gift, awaiting eagerly the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will also confirm you to the end,blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Jesus say in Revelation 3:10........"Because you havekept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth."
You are an "unteachable" person! Please do NOTsend me anymore of your "distorted doctrine" to my email box as it is NOT welcome here. Your examples from Scripture which you used below is totally out of context. You frankly do NOT understand the difference and the separation between God's program for His unredeemed people Israel , from His program for His Church which is already saved and redeemed by the blood of Jesus.
The 70 weeks of Daniel ( Chapter 9 ) were prophesied to and for Israel. They have NOTHINGwhatsoever to do with the church, nor the Church age.........."Seventy weeks have been decreed for "thy people" ( Daniel's people Israel ), and thy holy city ( Jerusalem ). Your reasoning and examples below which you pulled "out of context" from the Old Testement are totally distorted and unscriptural in relationship to the Church and New Testmament doctrine.
2Timothy 2:15........"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You need to do some "serious studying", and take some serious advice from the Apostle Paul who penned the Scripture verse above under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit!
In Christ forever, Tom Gaston

The Lord does not come before tribulation.
Daniel was not saved before the lions den but in it.
Shadrach, Meshack and Abednego were not saved before the fiery furnace but in it.
The church is passing through and shall pass through the tribulation.
The church shall be saved in it not before it like the examples
