Our Savior HIMSELF, said we would endure tribulation in this world;
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33
If you believe in the rapture, my hope is with you for sure. However, I think you should examine scripture (from Genesis to Revelation) for yourself, and see if that line of thinking truly lines up with what our Messiah taught.
- Prior to 1830 AD, this was unheard of doctrine - taught by no church
- A man named John Nelson Darby invented this doctrine around 1830 AD, based on essentially one passage in scripture; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, and also his interpretation of the "missing" church from the later chapters in the book of Revelation.
- I believe that the Rapture is a great deception, designed to get the eyes of believers off the signs of the times.
