Proof 26 For the Pre-tribulation Rapture of the Church

Can you imagine being in a college class, studying for a test, then taking the test and earning a perfect score on it, then the teacher tells you "congratulations on passing the test, now I'm going to re-test you!" What would you say? "Uh, hey I just passed the test." What is a test? A procedure intended to establish the quality, performance, or reliability of something.

So, if you pass a test, it seems slightly ridiculous to be tested on the same thing again right? You pass the test, you move on. We all understand this, yet there are people today who call themselves "christians" who tell you that even though you pass the test laid out before you today, you must be tested again in the tribulation/time of Jacob's trouble. We've already established what a bunch of nonsense pre-wrath/post-trib rapture doctrine is in previous posts but lets destroy their doctrine even further here.

What is the biblical proof that the "testing twice" nonsense that post-tribulation rapture and pre-wrath rapture advocates teach is a doctrine of demons lie from the pit of hell?

The proof that we are tested in this life without "the" tribulation/time of Jacob's trouble:

2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves to see whether you are in ...

Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you
not realize that Christ Jesus is in you--unless, of course, you fail the test?

2 Corinthians 13:6 And I trust that you will discover that we have ...

And I trust that you will discover that we have not failed the test. ... I
hope you will find out that we have not failed the test.

James 1:3 because you know that the testing of your faith develops ...

because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance

Deuteronomy 13:3 you must not listen to the words of that prophet ...

... prophet or dreamer. The LORD your God is testing you to find out whether
you love him with all your heart and with all your soul

Luke 8:13 Those on the rock are the ones who receive the word with ...

... They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away.

There is more proof, but let this suffice for now. We certainly are tested in this life. In this life we do have tribulation, testing and trial without "the" tribulation.....

John 16:33 "I have told you these things, so that in me you may ...

... I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world
you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome

That tribulation ^^^ is the tribulation that generation after generation after generation of our forefathers in the faith have endured and been victorious over if they died "in Christ." These generations of victorious believers are a witness and a proof that 1. they absolutely were tested in this world, 2. were delivered from the "tribulation" that they faced in life up through and including the day they died and 3. they never did, not one of them ever enter into "the" tribulation that is also known as the time of Jacob's trouble.

Generations of true believers have prayed the Lord's prayer, and that prayer has been answered for every single one of them that has died in the faith. Specifically they prayed "And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.'"

That is from the Lord's prayer. What it says specifically in the Greek is lead us not into the

That is, lead us not into the trial, the temptation, the experiment.....see for yourself here:

The teachers of the doctrine of demons (pre-wrath, post-trib) tell you that being led into the trial/temptation/experiment is a good thing! They tell you its something we "need." Yet the Lord's prayer itself, which is the only prayer that Jesus taught us himself tells you to pray that we will NOT be led into peirasmon, not be led into trial/temptation/the experiment. The Lord tells us specifically in Rev 3:10 that those who keep the Word of His patience will be kept from the peirasmou-from the same word peirazó

The idea that students in a classroom today would be tested again after successfully passing a test is ridiculous. It defies all logic and all spiritual sense. The only way being tested after passing the test makes sense is in the minds of demons and their servants.

If we are in the last days, then most of the true church has already died "in Christ" and we who are alive and remain today are a small fraction of overall body. That large majority of believers who died in Christ up through this very day NEVER DID ENTER "the" tribulation and neither will we. If you pray the Lord's prayer every day then every day you are praying to NOT be led into the trial/tempation/experiment that is going to come on this world to TEST them.

Rev 3:10 specifically tells us that we who remain and are patient will be kept from this trial. Luke 21:36 orders us to pray that we will escape ALL of whats about to happen just as all those who died in Christ up through today already have done. Every believer who has died in Christ up through this day have "escaped all" that is about to happen, and so will we if we are found worthy.

The proof is overwhelming. Double testing is a ridiculous lie from the pit of hell and the minds of demons. It also happens to be the doctrine of the pre-wrath/post-tribulation rapture teachers. That doctrine of demons has been thoroughly debunked and disproved in detail here in the other 20+ posts along the right side of this blog, and by other brothers scattered throughout the world. The Lord himself taught us to pray to be kept from trial in the Lords prayer. Rev 3:10 clearly states that the patient believers will be kept from the trial. Luke 21:36 clearly orders us to pray the same thing, that we may escape whats coming and whats coming is a trial and a test for those who have not passed it yet.

All the believers in Christ who have died in Christ passed the testing and trial and tribulations of their days. Those same testings and trials and tribulations are the ones we face today during these days of eating and drinking and planting and building and marrying and giving in marriage. These trials and testings and tribulations of ours will continue right up until the day that we enter our "ark" and then the flood will come just as it did in Noah's day. That flood will be "the" tribulation and it will test the hearts of men who were not ready in the days before the flood. Read Genesis 6, Matt 24, Mark 13 and Luke 17 for the details.

Matt 6:9After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11Give us this day our daily bread.

12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13And lead us not into peirasmon ( an experiment, a trial, a temptation)

, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen

The Lord taught us how to pray, He even gave us the exact words to use when we pray yet many are the teachers out there who are trying to change the Words from our Lord's mouth. Pray that you may be counted worthy to escape all of whats about to happen. Pray that you may be kept from the trial and temptation that is coming upon the entire world to test them. Keep the Word of the Lord's patience. Keep the faith.

Todays proof for the pre-tribulation rapture of the church is that the vast majority of the church who has already died in Christ were tested ONCE, not twice to gain entrance to the kingdom. They didnt need the trials/testings/tribulations of this life PLUS the 70th week of Daniel to enter the kingdom. They escaped all. They were kept from "the" hour of testing. We who are alive and remain today are part of this same church. We are being tested and tried and have the same tribulations to overcome that they did. We too will be kept from the hell on earth tribulation which will be the darkest days this world has ever seen. As you believe (Matt 8:13), so you receive so be very careful what you let men talk you out of....

These are the words the Lord has impressed upon this writer's spirit today. Keep the faith, grace and peace.
