I. What about the Pre-Trublation Rapture? (Introduction)
​      When most people speak of the "Rapture,"[1] they are thinking "Pre-tribulation Rapture. (i.e. Jesus  
 before the Great Tribulation
  Jesus is coming back, (Matt.24:3, Acts.1:11, 1Thes.4:13-18, Rev.11:15;
the question is when? Before the tribulation? (Pre-Trib) [1] In the middle of  the tribulation? [1]
(Mid-Trib) or at the end of the tribulation? (Post Trib.)[1]

    A. When will the "Rapture" (
i.e. the Second Coming) take place?

            The apostles doctrine (Acts.2:42) gives the order of events but not the time, because "of that
            day and hour knoweth no man."
(Matt.24:36) This order is revealed in Paul's epistles (i.e. letters) to
            the Thessalonians.
(Gal.1:11-12) "They had undue excitement, and had become shaken in mind
(2Thes.2:1-2) entertaining wrong views as to the nearness of Christ's return."
[2] They thought "that
            the day of Christ [was] at hand!"
(2Thes.2:2, 1Cor.15:51-52, 1Thes.4:13-18)


1.  Paul had to correct their wrong thinking with a second epistle (Letter)
                 Paul wrote, "Let no man deceive you
(Matt.24:4, Gal.1:11-12) by any means: for that day(the Second
(parousia) of the Lord Jesus Christ 2Thes.2:1shall not come except there come "a falling
              away first
, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition. Who opposeth and exalteth
                 himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the
temple of
                 God, shewing himself that he is God." (2Thes.2:4) Paul continues...

            Remember...when I was with you [4] I told you these things?"

                 (The Thessalonians knew this order that the antichrist was to be reveal before Jesus returns, 
                 when they received the first epistle
(1Thes.4:13-18) from Paul) Now the warning in1Thes.5:1-28
                 takes on a different light because the between us (today) and the Second Coming there will be a 
                 falling away and the antichrist will be revealed. (Note: 
2Thes.2:5) Therefore, let us not sleep...but let

                 us watch [25] and be sober [24] (to be of sound mind, i.e. sane, [figuratively] moderate Rom.12:1-2)
[26] in the light (Psa.119:105,130) so that day (when they say peace and safety1Thes.5:1-2)
                 shall not over take you.

 NoteThe grey color is what the Pre-Tribulation. Rapture doctrine teaches


           2. Some see two Second Comings in 2Thes.2:1 They see the "coming of our Lord   
               Jesus Christ" and another "day of Christ."

                  Paul wrote, "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming (parousia) of our Lord Jesus Christ,
                  and by our gathering together unto him...that the day of Christ is at hand
They say that when Paul
                  was referring to "the day of Christ," he was referring to the first of two Second Comings.They say 
                  when the Old Testament Prophets spoke of
"the Day of the Lord(Isa.2:12, Joel.1:15; 2:1, 31 / 
                    Acts.2:20, Joel.3:14, Amos.4:18-20, Obed.1:15, Zeph.1:13-15, Zech.14:1, Mal.4:5)
they were prophesying
                  about "that day"
(2Thes.2:3) spoken of by the apostle. Then it is said that the New Testament writers 
                  only spoke of 
the "Day of Christ(2Thes.2:1, Phil.1:10; 2:16) which makes two Comings.

However the New Testament writers spoke of the second coming as the "day of our Lord Jesus
(1Cor.1:8), the day of Jesus Christ (Phil.1:6), the day of Christ (Phil.1:10; 2:16, 2Thes.2:2)

Does this mean we have four different second comings because of these four different titles? No.
                  The answer for this is foundin the revelation ofthe name that God gave to Peter on the day of
                  Pentecost. "Let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom
                 ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ."
(Acts.2:36) This is why Paul (who was taught by Jesus
Gal.1:11-12) wrote, "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming (parousia) of our Lord Jesus

                a. The first Coming (The Word made flesh)

                      When God " the Word became flesh and dwelt among us"
(John.1:1-18, Matt.1:17-25) Gabriel told
                      Mary to called Him Jesus.
(Matt.1:21, Luke.1:26-31) At the river Jordan Jesus became the Christ (The
Dan.9:26 / anointed one Matt.3:13-17, John.1:35-41, Matt.11:2; 16:16 Matt.16:20; 24:5) Jesus
then told His disciples (while He was "confirming the covenant"
(Gal.3:16-17, Rom.15:8) "to
                      His own"
(John.1:11) "I have yet many things to say unto you," (about my name)
[17] John.16:10-15
                      but ye cannot bear (receive
[3] them now. (Before the Cross) 

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come,he will guide you into all truth." (The truth about
                     my name

                        This is exactly what happened after Jesus Christ was crucified as our Passover Lamb, (1Cor.5:7-8)
                      He was resurrected
(Acts.2:30) and glorified, (John.7:38-39; 17:5) sending the Holy Spirit on the day
                      of Pentecost.
(Acts.2:1-36) On this day Peter stands up a proclaims, "let all the house of Israel know
                      assuredly, that "God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and
(This is the Family name that the Bride will take - Eph.3:14-15)

               b. The Second Coming of The Lord Jesus Christ

                      At the Second Coming Jesus is returning as THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, as KING of KINGS and 
                      LORD of Lord's.
(Dan.2:31-45, Note.v.44, Rev.11:15; 19:11-21) ONE SECOND COMING. The Prophets
                      and the New Testament writer's all spoke of ONE Day. There is NO record [18]in scripture of a
                      Second Coming before the tribulation.

   3. Note the events that would have to be separated from the  Second Coming if
there was a two stage Second Coming

                 a. The 7th. Trump (the last of 7 trumpet's that sound) 
​                      "And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms
                      of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever
                      and ever.
(Rev,11:15, Rev.19:11-21, Dan.2:44-45)  Note: It is Jesus (Lord / Christ) that is coming. The
                      apostle refers to this trumpet as "the last trump"
[19] (1Cor.15:51-52, 1Thes.4:13-18) It is the last of
(Rev.8:1-2, 6-13; 9:1-21; 10:7; 11:15) Wherever you place the Second Coming you must include
                      the 7th. Trumpet, which includes the blowing of the 6 previous trumpets.

                      If you say that Jesus could return today, you are
                      also saying all the Seals
(Rev.6:1-16; 8:1-4) have been
                      opened, and the first 6 trumpets have blown.

                        (Rev.8:1-13; 11:14-15; 10:7 / Acts.3:19-21)                                              



            (3. Continued)with the events that cannot be separated from the  Second Coming
              if there was a two stage Second Coming

                b. The dead in Christ shall resurrect at the Second Coming

                      There is ONLY ONE resurrectionof the Dead in Christ, at the ONE and ONLY Second Coming
                      Every dead Old Testament saint
[20] (Eph.4:8) and New Testament saint (1Thes.4:13-18) must be in
                      this resurrection. There is no other! (If you place the Second Coming BEFORE the Tribulation, you
                      also MUST include the dead in Christ resurrecting)  
(1) It is "resurrection," never resurrections!

(a) Therefore "in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had 
(Matt 22:28-31, Mark.12:23, Luke.20:33-35) 

(b) Thou "shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be  
                                  recompensed at the resurrection of the just." 
(Luke 14:14-15)

(c) Shall "come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they
                                 that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
[8] (John 5:29, Rev.20:5-15)One      
for the those in Christ (the just or justified by Christ's blood -
Rom.1:17), and
                                 one resurrection for those outside of Christ. (the unjust, without hope -
Acts.24:15; Eph.2:1


                    (d) Martha saith unto him, "I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. 
                                  Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though  
                                  he were dead, yet shall he live:"
(John 11:24-26) 

       (e) So "also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in

                    (2) The Pre-TribulationRapture doctrine REQUIRES the "dead in Christ" to rise before
                         the Tribulation

                            There cannot be any Pre-Tribulation Rapture without the ONE and ONLY resurrection of
                            the dead in Christ. ONLY ONE "gathering" (only one complete collection of the saints)
 ONE and ONLY resurrection takes place before the Tribulation, then there is no other
                            resurrection for the saints that die for their testimony during the 5th. seal and the tribulation
(Rev.13:10; 14:11-13; 18:24)
          3. (Continued)with the events that cannot be separated from the  Second Coming
              if there was a two stage Second Coming


              c.  Then we (Christians / Saints)[22] which are alive and remain shall be caught up
                    together at the ONE and ONLY Second Coming. 
[13] (parousia)

 (1) How will there be any saints "alive and remain" at the end of the Tribulation?

Remember: There is not TWO Second Comings! - REVIEW: I.A.2) THE ONLY Second Coming 
                            will be after the 7 Seals have been opened. 
(Rev.5-9; 8:1-4)  After the 3 Woes. (Rev.8:13) 
                            After the 7 Trumpets has been blown.
(Rev.8:1-13; 9:1-21)  After the revealing of the antichrist
                            and all the events surrounding him 
[7] (Rev.11:1-15; 13:1-18; 14:9-12; 15:1-8; 16:1-16; 17:3; 18:1-
                              24; 19:11-20)

The answer is found in the identification of the Rev.12 woman because she is
                            the ONLY
 event that is preserved and protected from the antichrist.

                    (2) The identification of this Rev.12 Woman? (See
                            There are two woman in the Book of Revelation. The first woman 
(Rev.12:1-2) that John
                            saw was "a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her
                            feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in
                            birth, and pained to be delivered." The second woman
 (Rev.17:1-3) that John saw was "The
                            great whore that sitteth...upon a scarlet coloured beast, (antichrist) full of names of blasphemy."

                              (a)  The Rev.12 and 17 woman a both future women
                                  When John saw both of these Women he was seeing "things which must be hereafter."
                                  (i.e. future to John
Rev.4:1) This means, everything before the time that John wrote the
                                  Book of Revelation (approx. 96 AD).
 (Note: This eliminates the man child being Jesus [11] 
and the Woman being the Nation of Israel) [12]

     (b)  A woman always speaks of a Church (true or false)

                                  Christ is the Bridegroom. 
(Matt.9:15, Luke.5:33-35, Rev.19:7-8) The Church is the Bride 
(Eph.21-33) There is also another woman in the Book of Revelation (Rev.17:1-18) This is 
                                  the apostate Church / false / counterfeit Bride. Just "like" the true Bride of Christ. 

                         (c) This future Rev.12 woman is a Godly Woman

                                  Because she is clothed with the Sun, standing on the Moon and  a crown
                                  stars upon her head. All Godly symbols.
[12] Plus the dragon (Satan, Devil,
                                  Old Serpent
Rev.12:9) wants to destroy her and her child. (Rev.12:1-2, 14,
The other Woman (Rev.17) is clearly given over to the
                                  antichrist (the beast) 
(Rev.17:1- because God has sent "them strong
                                  delusion, that they should believe a lie"
(2Thes.8-11) She is clearly
                                  ungodly. S
he is a counterfeit, ungodly woman / Church / Bride. 

                         (d) This future Godly woman / Church is married 

                                  This conclusion is drawn because she is with child.
[21] (Rev.12:1-2)
and the ONLY future, married Godly woman is the Bride of Christ.
                                  Note how
 the serpent has tried to destroy the seed (Gen.3:15) of
                                  the woman,
(Gen.4:1-8) with Moses (Exod.1:1-22) and Jesus (Matt.
 and now he will try again to and destroy the seed of the
Rev.12 Woman in the Book of Revelation. (Rom.16:20, Rev.12:1-17;
 The great dragon (old serpent, the Devil and Satan Rev.12:9)
                                  knows that "the seed" will make war  in heaven,
(Rev.12:7-10) result-
                                  ing in heaven being cleansed, him being cast down to the earth and 
                                  his head being bruised. 
(Gen.3:15, Rev.13:1-3) Now Lucifer / Satan
                                  (dragon, old serpent,
Devil) has lost his position and access before
                                  God and knows he does but a short time.
(42 months Rev.13:5) after
                                  which Jesus returns and destroys him.
(Rev.19:11-2, 2Thes.2:8-9)
This gives us the PURPOSE OF THE BRIDE.
 (Much more to come. PHASE 12)

                         (e) This future (Married) woman / Church is
clothed with the Sun
                            The Sun - The source of all life / light. In Joseph's dream the sun
                                  was compared to the Father (Jacob)
 (Gen.1:14-18, Psa.19:1-5, Rom.1:20, Gen.37:9,
                                    Rev.21:23, Psa.84:11, Josh.10:13, Matt.17:1-5, Exod.34:29-35 / 2Cor.3:7-18)
The Bride for the
(1Cor.15:45) Adam (Eve Gen.2:18-) was clothed with a covering that God gave. (Gen.2:18-
                                    25; 3:7, Heb.4:13) 
The last Adam (1Cor.15:45, Rom.5:14)  wife / Bride, will be a "glorious" (Glory
                                  filled) Church. 

                              (f)  The Moon under her feet / Atonement foundation
                            The Moon reflects the Sun
(Gen.1:14-18, Psa.19:1-5, Rom.1:20, 1Cor.3:11)
 The Moon reflects
                                  the Sun, (the lesser light
(Phil.2:4-8) She is standing (being supported / foundation on the
                                  Moon) To be continued.........

(g) Crown of 12 Stars upon her head / 12 Last day apostles

                                  Crown - Conquer 
(Gen.1:14-18, Psa.19:1-5, Rom.1:20) To be continued.........

                                  12 Stars -To be continued.........

pon her head -
 To be continued.........

                            Note: This Rev.12 Woman is the married Bride of the Lord Jesus Christ that had taken place
                                 at the opening of the 7th. Seal. This brings about the fulness of the promise that God made to 
                                 Adam and Eve.
(Gen.3:15) God said, "I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and
                                 between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

​     B. NowPaul's warning is urgent! (1Thes.5:1-9) especially to us today!

            This is because between our present time and the Second Coming
(parousia) is the falling away and the
            man of sin being revealed.
[15] (Note: 1Thes.2:5 REVIEW: PHASE 10)

           1. Let no man deceive you by any means (2Thes,2:3, Matt.24:4-5,11)

                 Let no man decieve you. This is the first thing that Jesus said when the disciples asked about His
                 Second Coming.
(Matt.24:4-5,11) John says, the spirit of antichristis already (1st. Century AD) in this
. He writes that "even now (1st. Century AD) there are many antichrists 
(1John.2:18-20; 4:1-4) 
                 but there is still "the" antichrist a man
[23] (Rev.13:17) to still to come. (2Thes.2:7-8)
2. That "that day" should not overtake you as a thief

                 Paul says, (Gal.1:11-12) "we are not in darkness, that that day (when they say, Peace and safety
1Thes.5:3) should overtake you as a thief. (because we will be in the Ark / Bride / Rev.12 Woman)
                 You are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

                 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but
let us watch and be sober.

                 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ if you don't
                 sleep, and if you are watching, and if you are sober. if you are in the  Ark!

            3. Because there is trouble ahead of the Church

                 The trouble ahead is the Seals (Rev.6:1-17; 8:1) and the first four trumpets. (Rev.8:1-13 See chart above)    
                 This warning 
(1Thes.5:19) followed (1Thes.4:13-18) which told them about the Second Coming but the 
                 Thessalonians had forgotten Paul's warning. 

            4. Be like Noah (Matt.24:36-37, Heb.11:7)

a. By "faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet
  b. Moved with fear, prepared[9] an ark to the saving of his house" (Heb.11:7) 

                 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in
                 the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober,
                 putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not 
                 appointed us to wrath, (because those that are "alive and remain" will be safe in the Ark / the Rev.12 
                 Woman from the destruction) ("Comfort one another" 

                   The Pre-Tribulation doctrine teaches we miss all this. This doctrine is teaching that the building
                  of the Ark
(according to them) will happen in the "twinkling of an eye" (Automatic)

                 The Pre-Trib hangs on the the two separate days. There Day of Christ and the Day of the Lord.​
