The GREAT EVENT foretold in the Holy Scriptures (the Bible) and which is believed and taught by the evangelical and true blood-bought body of Christ concerning “the rapture of the Church of the living God” from this earth to glory HAS TAKEN PLACE. Both the living believers and the dead in Christ (who have been raised from the dead) have been caught up to meet the Lord in the air, in accordance with the following Scriptures:
“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”
(I Thessalonians 4:15-17)
Now, after the rapture, the true Church (all believers and followers of the Lord Jesus Christ) has been taken from the earth, the powers of Satan will have full sway, and a terrible, indescribable tribulation will take place during which the inhabitants of the earth (Jew and Gentile) will suffer much.
To live for Christ now, under the reign of the antichrist, and to confess Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, that you may escape the eternal damnation of hell, will cost you your very life. But salvation is still promised to those who endure to the very end (Matt. 24:13)
Those who are saved out of the great tribulation are described in Rev. 7:14 as having “washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” Your robes are stained with UNBELIEF, WORLDLINESS, PLEASURE SEEKING, and OTHER SINS. Separate yourself unto God absolutely, and seek cleansing by believing in the blood of Christ which was shed on Calvary for the remission of sin (John 3:16)
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Rom. 10:13)
Study your Bible earnestly while you have it, and memorize as much as possible before it is taken from you.
The antichrist will be the great world dictator; he will compel men to wear his mark, and worship him and his image.
