    It doesn’t mean after the churches. It means the vision of Jesus where he talks about the churches.

      After these things just means on to the next part of the book. Not after the churches. It just doesn’t say that.

    In addition, the Church is not mentioned again after Chapter 3 until Revelation 22:6. That is “after these things” are fully revealed.

    I look at this way Jesus had said to watch, because thou does not know when thy Lord doth come.
    We all know for a fact that he is coming at the end of the seven year tribulation, so you are already prepared for his coming.
    If you believe that we will meet the Lord in the air, then you have to believe in a catching away, or a rapture.
    If you believe that the catching away is in the middle of the tribulation, then you already know. Three and a half years after the tribulation starts.
    Here again you already know, even though Jesus had said that no body knows but the Father in heaven.
    Now the Pretribbers have no way of knowing concerning the catching away, or the rapture, when their Lord had said to stay alert and WATCH,, because we do not know..
    Because the tribulation will take everyone by surprise, and so will our Lord.

    He said no man knows the day or the hour because no man did. Now he does. There is no scriptural support for pretrib. The disciples asked for signs. Jesus have them 30 verses of signs. Open your eyes people.

    We rise to meet him in the air right????????
    Matthew 24:30-31 KJVS
    [30] And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. [31] And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

    Well many will be rewarded for their faith, according to their works.
    It all depends upon their confession, or confessions.
    To believe in a healing for your body it takes faith in the GREAT I AM..
    I have received healing for my body different times, and I have been rewarded for my faith.
    The pretrib, is all based on faith.
    I do not eat and sleep the pretrib, because I do not know when the tribulation starts.
    I instead I walk by Faith

      I didn’t have the pleasure of reading the unbelief that others have written concerning the Bible.
      And I haven’t had a TV much in our home, and it has been forty years now. So I can’t be accused of watching Jack Van Impe .
      I had a book here from Hal Lindsey that I had found to boring to read.
      It was called the Late Great Planet Earth.
      It was given to me shortly after it came out.
      I only read a few pages of it.

      If you just follow Matthew 24 it shows you where the rapture is. Paul let’s you know also in 1 Thessalonians five that his talking about the second coming in 4 16-18. The rapture is the first part of the second coming.

      A matter of a fact I don’t even agree with some of Jack Van Impe’s teachings.
      For one there will be Christians left here to face the tribulation. Quite a lot of them.
      All because they had taken the Lord for granite.
      They chose not to walk in the light as He is in the light.
      And they weren’t found with their oil lamps trimmed

      First the Christian has to be found worthy enough to escape all the things that will be coming upon the Earth during the tribulation.
      Many Christians think that it is okay to drink alcohol.
      And they also take sin for granted when Christ came to set the captive free..

      Luke 21:34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
      35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
      36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

      And I plan to escape these things. God’s wrath does start till after the midpoint of the tribulation. The first part of the 7 years a the wrath of man and the Antichrist

      Ricky it is very doubtful that many Christians will make it through the tribulation.
      If they don’t receive the mark of the beast, they won’t be able to buy food to eat, and those who do receive the mark will gladly turn the others in for not obeying the law.
      Mostly all Christians will not make it the full seven years.
      There are those that believe that the Lord will place the Christians in a mysterious hide away. Some even have said Petra..
      I wonder where they get their doctrines from..

      So you believe that the Lord will just sit back and let his children die like he had set back for Lot, Noah, the children of Nineveh.
      In other words God sees no need to make away of escape for his children mentioned in Luke 21:36

    • Reply April 1, 2018

      So in other words there is no need to pray to be worthy enough to escape the tribulation.
      I had one gentleman tell me that Luke 21:36 is referring to death in order to be worthy enoug to escape the tribulation.
      In other words, pray for a blessing of cancer to kill your body, or pray that a Semi Tractor Trailer hits you head on so that you may be worthy enough to escape.
      He was adamant that he was right about Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

      You see I would quote all the scriptures but the books that you have been reading that disagrees with the pretrib, has got an explanation for those scriptures even Luke 21:36.
      Some people even go to the extremes and say that Jesus was referring to the Jews only and not the believer in Christ.

      Then what tops it off the Prophesy Club on YouTube say that the Pretribbers will accept the mark of the beast because they are so heart broken. LOL
      Not when you have the Holy Ghost.
      Many denominations know how to get people saved, but they don’t know how to give people the gift of the Holy Ghost ?.
      They tell each new convert that they supposedly received the Holy Spirit upon conversion, which is not scriptural.
      Yes those people that are saved with out the tangible presence of the Holy Ghost ? in their lives, just might crumble and give into the mark of the beast so that they can buy and sell to feed their families
