AN OVERVIEW OF THE RAPTURE CONTROVERSY AND WHY TWO RAPTURES MUST BE TRUE. (EXCERPT & UPDATE FROM MY BANNED BOOK, "THE ANSWER- TWO RAPTURES", Copyright © 1986 All Rights Reserved.
When it comes to The Subject of "The Rapture", there are three views or mind sets that Christians have. I call these the "Three Blind Mice" as all three views are flawed and false, The "Blind Leading The Blind".
ONE: PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE
BASED UPON 1 THES:4:16
Obviously this is the most popular view as it guarantees A Rapture BEFORE The Tribulation starts if you simply accept JESUS as your savior and have a born-again experience. Those who believe this false view already see themselves Raptured into Heaven, even if they are actively practicing sin such drunkenness, hating others, refusing to forgive others, or addicted to any number of sins from Pornography to Child Abuse.
This twisted view is the "Bible Candy" of the lukewarm, the hypocrites and the self-righteousness, the lying delight of Baptist, Evangelical and Pentecostal Theology. It is also the basis of every best selling Christian Book (on Prophecy) from Hal Lindsay, To John Haggee and Jack Van Impe."
TWO: MID-TRIBULATION VIEWThis view is the favorite of The Fearmongers and The Doomsayers. It says that The "Rapture" happens DURING The Tribulation So All Christians Will Be Cast Into The Great Tribulation, There Is No Escape!
The fruit of this false view is fear, doubt, worry and chaos, the exact state that the devil wants you to suffer in, unless of course you accept his "delusion" of Guaranteed Rapture" for all christians, no matter how sinful, backslidden or hatefilled you are.
THREE: POST TRIBULATION VIEW
This view falsely teaches The "Rapture" happens at The End of The Tribulation (of seven years), moments before JESUS returns at His Second Coming.
This view also fills Christians with fear, worry, confusion and doubt as many verses in The Bible seem to indicate that Christians can escape The Coming Apocaylpse, The Tribulation.All three of the above views pervert, violate and twist the very nature of God. As God is Holy and Righteous, there are two things that He cannot do
GOD CANNOT REWARD EVIL.
GOD CANNOT PUNISH GOODNESS.
To say "All Christians will be raptured, (no matter how much they evil they do) says that "God rewards evil".
To say,"No matter how faithful some Christians are
in following The Gospel, no matter how much a believer
suffers for The Gospel, they will be cast into the
Great Tribulation" says that "God repays goodness with Judgment."
So round and round The Rapture goes and where
it stops the blinded don't know. But I do and so can you! =========== END =============

*When I wrote "THE ANSWER - TWO RAPTURES" (1982-1986) The "LEFT BEHIND" book series and movie by Tim La Haye did not exist. Sadly the flawed Theology presented in "Left Behind" has helped to lead millions of Christians astray. Those who follow The Message of Tim La Haye will find themselves "Left Behind" when The First Rapture happens, for the worthy believers who "Kept God's Word." (Rev:3:10).
Being "born from above" (born again) does not guarantee us a "Rapture into Heaven" before the tribulation starts. (this is the lie, the delusion, that the devil wants you to believe so he can corrupt and pervert your walk with God). Being "born again" is our first step in becoming "accounted worthy" for Heaven and The First of Two Rapture Events.
In The Gospel, JESUS said, "What I show
You in secret, shout from the rooftops.
Back in May 1982, The Lord showed me The Truth of The Rapture, The Key that unlocks The Sealed & Shut Prophecy (Dan:12:4) and the Echo of my humble shout has been resonating across The Internet for the last nine years.
REWARDER OF GOODNESS
There are TWO RAPTURES to come and not one. JESUS will Reward & Rapture His True followers, His Faithful Remnant, (The "worthy" Church of Philadelphia) BEFORE The Tribulation Starts.
The First Rapture (Rapture of the Worthy) is found in The Gospel, In Matt:24:40, & Lu:21:34-36 and in Revelation 3:10, Rev:4:4 and Rev:5:9.
PUNISHMENT OF EVIL
GOD will cast all sinning Christians, The Lukewarm, The Backslidden, The Lovers of Church Lies and The Cowardly into The Great Tribulation! This "Judgment" is their last chance to repent and follow JESUS for real, during this darkest time in human history when Antichrist rules the world.
The Second Rapture is found in 1 Thes:4:16, 1 Cor:15:52 and Rev:14:14.
THE CHOICE IS ALL OURS
Those who truly Follow JESUS and live The Gospel will ESCAPE in The First Rapture.
Those who play games with God, His Gospel and sin will be cast into the Tribulation as their Last Chance to follow JESUS with "all of their hearts, souls, minds and strengths" and probably be starved, raped and beheaded for their faith.
If you want to be "accounted worthy" to ESCAPE The Coming Tribulation, then do what JESUS said. Follow His Words in Red, and we will be taken in The First Rapture, just as He said.
"Watch therefore, and pray
always that you will be
"Accounted worthy" to ESCAPE
all of these things that shall
come to pass and stand before
The Son of Man."
FORGIVENESS IS A GIFT EARNED BY JESUS DEATH UPON THE CROSS.
BEING "ACCOUNTED WORTHY" IS WHAT WE EARN, BY FOLLOWING JESUS AND MAKING WORTHY CHOICES, PLACING GOD ABOVE ALL (Mt:10:37-38).
