The earthquakes keep coming non-stop.

Today is day 1 of Rosh Hashanah.  Keep your eyes open, be watching.

Luke 21:34“Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. 35For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 36Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”

1 Thess 5:1Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, 2for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

A key question I have for anyone who questions when the rapture will take place is why the Lord chose to put that word "all" in there.  It is terribly vexing for those who tell us there is no escape from what is coming.  Notice the Lord puts this statement at the end of Luke 21.  What did the Lord explain to us in Luke 21?  The entire tribulation period?  Yea.  And after explaining all of it what did He say?  Pray that you may be counted worthy to escape ALL of it.  I didn't put the words in there HE did.  I dd not put that statement at the end, HE did.  I am amazed at how many people fail to take the Lord at His Word.

We all go through trials and tribulations in this life but not THE tribulation.  The tribulation/time of JACOB's trouble is a time that millions and millions and millions of Christians who have died in Christ will NEVER go through because they died before it happened.  And yet somehow, we the end time Church are destined for it?  Come on now, please help me understand how the majority of the Church who has died in Christ did not have to endure "the" tribulation, but we do?  Show me in the Bible where the end time Church has to prove we are "worthy" but all those who have died in Christ before us did not.  The argument is nonsense.
