    Why Pretrib Logic Fails

    What she said is simply not truth. Why is that so difficult to grasp? She disagreed with Paul in 1 Thes. 5. She disagreed with John when He showed us the great crowd, too large to number, in heaven before "the trib" begins.

    Writers! The pretrib rapture is both logical and scriptural! Why fight the truth?

    Corrie Ten Boom was not scriptural in her remarks. She was basing her remarks on her experiences. We must base our doctrine in scripture, not on experience.

    CLEARLY delineated in Revelation with the marriage and supper written in Rev. 19, after the 70th week has ended.

    Why Pretrib Logic Fails

    If you look in Rev 12 (a midpoint chapter) you read this: 17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. A little background: the "woman" or those living in Judea have just seen the abomination and fled into the wilderness, just as Jesus told them to. The dragon tried to get them, but failed, realizing they are supernaturally protected. So He turns to another group. This group is only a remnant. WHY a remnant? Because the main load went out with the pretrib rapture: only a remnant is left on earth. They are indeed, "tribulation saints." Pretrib does not deny there will be tribulation saints: we only deny that THE CHURCH will be tribulation saints. Paul tells us that the rapture will come just before God's wrath - which wrath begins at the 6th seal. The rapture then will come a moment before the 6th seal. "The trib" or 70th week will begin at the 7th seal. This is pretrib: rapture before trib. Case closed.

    The marriage and supper as written in Rev. 19 is VERY MUCH a part of the logic of a pretrib rapture. Posttribbers can't get to the marriage! It is that simple. The marriage and supper will be in heaven before Jesus descends.

    Question: was it Antiochus Epiphanes that makes war with the saints in Dan. 7? (Let's start with this.)

    Why Pretrib Logic Fails

    Does Paul mention the Day of the Lord, just 3 verses past his classic rapture verse of 1 Thes. 4:17? Does Paul tell us that two groups of people get two different results: that those in Christ get "salvation" (raptured) while those living in darkness get "sudden destruction?" Does Paul then tell us God will set no appointments for us with His wrath - hinting very strongly that the "sudden destruction" is the start of God's wrath and probably the start of the Day of the Lord? Is belief that God sets no appointments with His wrath "twisting?" Or is that just plain truth written by Paul? Is 1 Thes. chapter 5 a footnote? I will freely admit that believing the rapture will come before wrath is "feel good." We are to comfort one another with this thought! Is the scriptural word "comfort" so far removed from "feel good" that you have to make fun of it? Finally, why is it illogical to you that God would NOT WISH His own children to suffer from His wrath? He God angry with US - His children - or is He angry with the world that will not repent?

    Just as I expected: no attack on Jerusalem written in Revelation. Daniel 8 is about Greece and Persia: and their conflict, then Greece after Alexander had whipped Darius of Persia. Then about Antiochus.

    The future

    It is very simple: God spoke, and I listened. I heard His voice and His words. First He said I could find "that exact midpoint clearly marked in the book of Revelation." (I had been reading Daniel 9:27 and when my eyes and my mind got to the word "midst" He spoke. After telling me HOW to find that exact midpoint, He said - as an afterthought - that I could find the entire 70th week "clearly marked." When He said that, I got a download of information without words: suddenly I knew why I could find the entire 70th week clearly marked: God used the same marker for the beginning and ending as He used for the midpoint! Now, you can learn from this, or you can write it off: it is up to you. I will add this thought: If there is only 3.5 years or half the week written in Revelation, as many suppose, what Jesus spoke to me would be error. There would not be an "exact midpoint." And there wouldn't be anyone fleeing at that midpoint as 12:6 tells us. Remember, Jesus told them to flee the moment they see the abomination. Daniel tells us that some event would divide the week into two halves. Paul gives us a strong hint: the man of sin will enter the temple and declare he is God. To be truthful, I did not want to study Revelation. My older brother tried to get me interested years before. But when God told me to study Revelation, I obeyed. I read nothing but End times scriptures for 3 years, over and over and over and over. I knew that if I did this, while praying much in the Spirit, I would hear from heaven. Him telling me I could find that exact midpoint was the start. There was much more. I do have a question for you: How can an event divide a week into two halves if there is only a half to divide?

    The future

    Ah! You are right. So sorry.
  12. John may or may not have known what was inside the book: what he did know was that it was very important to find someone worthy to open these seals. The truth is, it WAS very important - for it no one was found, Satan would remain the god of this world forever. Was the gospel going forth a "secret?" Was the devil's attempts to stop the gospel a secret? Was the martyrs a secret? No, none of these things represented by the seals are or were "secrets." Perhaps what was a secret was that known events were tied to seals. If you wish to think of the seals as secrets, it is not a serious thing. If angels had been doing this ongoing search for one worthy - does that not in and of itself denote something very important?

    Just so you know, I was NOT impressed with the Septuagint to English translation. I was just curious how it would read.

    The future

    By the way, just so I am not misunderstood: quoting the bible is a good thing. But quoting two verses together AS IF they were meant to be together (when in reality they are not) is often done in these threads. Quoting scripture and then writing a false premise as to what the verse means also is done frequently. Shall I give an example? Quoting the gathering in Matthew 24 and then quoting 1 Thes. 4:17 beside it - as if they are speaking of the same event - that is a no no.

    The future

    Of course you would imagine I am having a serious problem with God - but that is only because I disagree with you - and of course you are right (in your own mind). I haven't counted, but I have probably met a hundred people on forums that imagine they are right. Whether or not they are will all come out soon enough, for we are at the very end. Just so you can check on my theory, I say the rapture is soon, and will come before the world wide earthquake of the 6th seal start of the Day of the Lord. In other words, I am expecting HIM before anything else in Revelation. What I don't know: it may well be world war 3 will start before the rapture. Time will tell.
