If we BELIEVE (John 3:16) then we CANNOT BELIEVE in the doctrine of the “rapture”!
To believe in the doctrine of the “rapture” is to NOT BELIEVE the POWER OF GOD is to NOT BELIEVE that JESUS IS RISEN FROM THE DEAD because JESUS has POWER to lay down his life or to die and raise his own body from the dead; and by this POWER also the CHILDREN OF GOD will NEVER SEE DEATH (John 8:51, 10:17–18)..
GOD does NOT have to so call “rapture” his CHIDLREN to protect from the EVIL OF THIS WORLD to ESCAPE the GREAT TRIBULATION because the word of GOD says:
“[THE RIGHTEOUS PERISHETH, AND NO MAN LAYETH IT TO HEART]: and [MERCIFUL MEN ARE TAKEN AWAY], none considering [THAT THE RIGHTEOUS IS TAKEN AWAY FROM THE EVIL TO COME]” (Isaiah 57:1).
Our Lord and Savior JESUS CHRIST expressed to us for the coming Great Tribulation saying: “And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. [BUT THERE SHALL NOT AN HAIR OF YOUR HEAD PERISH. IN YOUR PATIENCE POSSESS YE YOUR SOULS]. [AND WHEN YE SHALL SEE JERUSALEM COMPASSED WITH ARMIES, THEN KNOW THAT THE DESOLATION THEREOF IS NIGH]. 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 21:16-22).
“[AND FEAR NOT THEM WHICH KILL THE BODY, BUT ARE NOT ABLE TO KILL THE SOUL]: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).
“[FEAR NONE OF THOSE THINGS WHICH THOU SHALT SUFFER]: behold, [THE DEVIL SHALL CAST SOME OF YOU INTO PRISON], that ye may be tried; [AND YE SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION TEN DAYS]: be thou [FAITHFUL UNTO DEATH], and [I WILL GIVE THEE A CROWN OF LIFE]” (Revelation 2:10).
”And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away” (Revelation 2:10) (1 Peter 5:4).
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall [NEVER SEE DEATH]” (John 8:51).
“MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE, AND I KNOW THEM, AND THEY FOLLOW ME]: And [I GIVE UNTO THEM ETERNAL LIFE];” ((John 10:27).
“[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).
