There are many among us holding on to beliefs and doctrines that JESUS is coming to “rapture” them before the Great Period of Tribulation.
Our Lord JESUS very clearly explained to his disciples that he is COMING AFTER the Great Tribulation at the END OF THE WORLD.
“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and [WHAT SHALL BE THE SIGN OF THY COMING, AND OF THE END OF THE WORLD]?” (Matthew 24:3).
“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. [FOR MANY SHALL COME IN MY NAME, SAYING, I AM CHRIST; AND SHALL DECEIVE MANY]” (Matthew 24:4-5).
“[THEN IF ANY MAN SHALL SAY UNTO YOU, LO, HERE IS CHRIST, OR THERE; BELIEVE IT NOT]. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall [SHEW GREAT SIGNS AND WONDERS]; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not” (Matthew 24:23-26).
“When [YE SHALL SEE] the [ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION], spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then [LET THEM THAT BE IN JUDÆA FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS]” (Mark 13:14).
“And when [YE SHALL SEE JERUSALEM COMPASSED WITH ARMIES], then know that the [DESOLATION THEREOF IS NIGH]” (Luke 21:20).
“Then [LET THEM WHICH ARE IN JUDÆA FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS]; and [LET THEM WHICH ARE IN THE MIDST OF IT DEPART OUT]; and [LET NOT THEM THAT ARE IN THE COUNTRIES ENTER THEREINTO]. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled” (Luke 21:21-22).
“[FOR THEN SHALL BE GREAT TRIBULATION], such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. [AND EXCEPT THOSE DAYS SHOULD BE SHORTENED, THERE SHOULD NO FLESH BE SAVED: BUT FOR THE ELECT’S SAKE THOSE DAYS SHALL BE SHORTENED]” (Matthew 24:15-16, 21-22).
“[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” (Matthew 24:29-30).
“[FEAR NOT, LITTLE FLOCK]; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).
“I am with you alway, [EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).
