Rapture And Wrath Don’t Mix

When God pours out his wrath on His enemies, He always places His own people out of harm’s way. He has never yet failed to protect His own from His own wrath. Even in Paradise, He protected His own who were in Abraham’s bosom at that time, from those who were not His own, by placing a great gulf between them that could not be crossed.

God will not unleash His fury against the very people who call out to Him for mercy, by the very blood of His only begotten Son. It is not going to happen. If that were true, one could only say of God that, “He speaks with forked tongue.” He isn’t going to give us mercy in one hand and then beat the stuffing out of us with the other.

As far as I’m concerned with this subject we call the Rapture, I’ll see you on the way up to be with Jesus, before the Tribulation starts.

Full Commentary: Standing For God

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 ... But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. ❤
