Make no mistake, the PreTribulation Rapture is in scripture #CCOT
The "Pretribulation Rapture" is in Scripture folks!
1Corinthians 15:23-24........"But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming ( The resurrection / Rapture of the Church ), then comes "the end", when He hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when ( after ) He has abolished all rule and all authority and power ( Begins with the opening of the "first seal" judgment and continues on throughout the whole seven year tribulation period, at which time at the conclusion of this seven year period of destroying all rule and all authority and power ( Matt. 24:29,30 ), Christ will then return to the earth and hand over the kingdom to God the Father ).
There is your "biblical order" of prophetic events folks! And you don't have to be an intellectual, nor a bible scholar, and neither a genius in order to understand and see that the Church is NOT going to be here for THE END which begins AFTER the resurrection / Rapture of the Church takes place ( those who are Christ's at His coming ). Christ is the first fruits of the resurrection, then the Church is resurrected and caught up, and THEN ( and only then ) COMES THE END!
It's that simple and that basic folks! And yet it appears that many "mid-tribbers" and "post-tribbers" who embrace their distorted views have never read this Scripture passage ( among many other important passages of Scriptures by the way ) with any intelligence whatsoever!
This important passage of Scripture ( among many other passages ) shows clearly that God's prophetic program for His church is that she will be resurrected and Raptured to heaven "prior to" the tribulation period starting! And if anyone wants to "argue" with God and His passage of Scripture which I have quoted above, and of which is clear and precise as to the "order" of God's resurrection program, then all I can say is that they are "willfully and blatantly ignorant", and that they are not interested in the "truth", but rather they are only interested in distorting the Scriptures!
( First )......Christ's resurrection, the first fruits from the dead.
( Then second )......The resurrection / Rapture of the Church at His coming.
( Then third )......Then comes the end / the tribulation period at which time God will be destroying all rule and authority and power in the earth. He then returns at the end of this period and hands over the kingdom to God the Father.
God only has to say and reveal something "once" in order for it to be true! And so the real question for those who believe otherwise is this....."Why won't you believe God and His word?"
Why are so many "resisting and arguing against "God's clear word" on this subject matter?"
