First the Rapture and then the Great Tribulations

First the Rapture and then the Great Tribulations
Bible Study by Herbert H. Ogletree

Knowing that the Rapture first, and then that the Great Tribulations shall soon follow. Which is right before us and is now almost upon us, we should be very concern knowing that we are now facing the Rapture in which we also know that no one will be able to see Christ, but only the one that is at that very time being raptured. But their companion shall see or know nothing that is going on, but only their partner that was with them had now disappeared.

Then after the Great Tribulations then shall follow the end of time, then and only then shall everyone be able to see the Glory of our Christ coming from within the sky, knowing that this is truly the end of time. We should now take the advantage of this for we know that our time is now running short and our Salvation is now only can be right around the corner of today.

For we can now only look and call upon Christ that has now already gone on into Heaven, we can always be in touch with Christ with our Heavenly message into man’s Salvation. For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins.

Knowing that we should have compassion upon the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that Christ himself also had compassed. With infirmity knowing that we should also take avenge of this now by knowing that the Great Tribulation is not fore off and is now looking down upon us. And after this is when our whole world shall be destroyed and our earth shall be no more.

But first we are now facing the Rapture to come soon as we find in the Book of Saint Luke

17:30- Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

17:31- In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.

17:32- Remember Lot's wife.

17:33- Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

17:34- I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.

17:35- Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

17:36- Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

17:37- And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.

Then shall be the Great Tribulation be upon us as we find in in the Books of the Bible as in Saint Matthew 24:19- And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

24:20- But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day:

24:21- For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

24:22- And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

24:23- Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

24:24- For there shall arise false Christ’s, and false prophets, and shall shrew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

24:25- Behold, I have told you before.

24:26 -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.

24:27- For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

24:28- For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

24:29- 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:

24:30- 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.

24:31- 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.

24:32- Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

24:33- So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

24:34- Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

24:35- Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
Hi Herbert,

You obviously support the pre-trib rapture theory. I on the other hand support the post-trib rapture theory although I do lean from time to time back to the pre-trib theory. There are very good scriptures to back up both theories, actually all three if one includes the mid-trib theory. In essence we do not really know when the rapture will take place but we should be ready for it at any moment. As one famous theologian wrote - be prepared for the worst and if the best happens then praise God but we still are not removed from our responsibility to evangelise until our very last breath is taken.
