Jesus is very clear when he says: “I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).
Many people are still posting comments holding on to the belief that they will be taken away or “raptured” to escape the great period of tribulation (Matthew 24:21). They point to the passage of Scripture written by the Apostle Paul, saying:
“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” (1 Thessalonians 4:16–17).
However, this passage of scripture outlines the summary of events AFTER THE GREAT TRIBULATION at the End of the World when Jesus returns on the Last Day for the Day of Judgment (Matthew 25:31–34) (Matthew 25:41, 46).
Jesus explained, said: “Immediately [AFTER THE TRIBULATION] of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. 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. 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” (Matthew 24:29-31).
“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and [EVERY EYE SHALL SEE HIM], and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen” (Revelation 1:7).
