Now, untold numbers of people are holding on to the false doctrine of the “rapture” believing that they will escape the Day of Judgment being so called “raptured” to heaven before the great period of tribulation.
DO NOT BE DECIEVED!
“[FOR WE MUST ALL APPEAR BEFORE THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST]; that [EVERY ONE] may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10).
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but [AFTER THIS THE JUDGMENT]” (Hebrews 9:27).
Jesus explains the events of the DAY OF JUDGMENT, saying:
“When the Son of man [SHALL COME] in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory; and [BEFORE HIM SHALL BE GATHERED ALL NATIONS]: and [HE SHALL SEPARATE THEM ONE FROM ANOTHER], as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats; and [HE SHALL SET THE SHEEP ON HIS RIGHT HAND, BUT THE GOATS ON THE LEFT].
Then shall [THE KING SAY UNTO THEM ON HIS RIGHT HAND], ‘[COME, YE BLESSED OF MY FATHER, INHERIT THE KINGDOM PREPARED FOR YOU FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD]’” (Matthew 25:31–34).
“Then shall [HE SAY ALSO UNTO THEM ON THE LEFT HAND, DEPART FROM ME, YE CURSED, INTO EVERLASTING FIRE], prepared for the Devil and his angels. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal” (Matthew 25:41, 46).
Do you have FAITH?
Our Lord Jesus warned when he asks: “Nevertheless when the Son of man [COMETH, SHALL HE FIND FAITH] on the earth? (Luke 18:8).
“[MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE], and I know them, and they [FOLLOW ME]. And [I GIVE UNTO THEM ETERNAL LIFE]; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand” (John 10:27-28).
The Apostle Paul warned, said: “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the [FAITH]; [PROVE YOUR OWN SELVES]. Know ye not your own selves, [HOW THAT JESUS CHRIST IS IN YOU]?” (2 Corinthians 13:5).
“For ye are all the children of God by [FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS]” (Galatians 3:24).
