No “secret coming” of Jesus
If there was a "secret coming" of Jesus, that would mean His Second Coming would actually be His third coming, which is a lie! No secret rapture for the Church. Jesus Himself said in Matthew 24 that He comes immediately AFTER the tribulation. He also says in Matthew 13 that He will send His angels to gather first the tares for the fire and THEN the wheat (us, Christians) will be gathered into His barn! And again in Matthew 13 He says "two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left."
Nowhere in the Bible is there a mention of a "secret coming" of Jesus our Lord. Nowhere! And all those verses people like to use as 'evidence' of rapture before the tribulation is actually talking about what happens at Jesus' Second Coming. It just makes sense. When I truly got saved in 2011, I too believed we will be raptured out of here before the tribulation because that's what most Christians believed and what most pastors preached, but thank God He gave me a hunger for His word and HIS truth and as I read the Bible, something was not right about this rapture and escaping the tribulation.
This is what I believe and you can believe what you want, but I will no longer remain quiet about the truth. I thank God for leading me into all truth THROUGH HIS WORD!
If this offends anyone, so be it. I would rather offend man than Christ. I am sick of being the hypocrite and keeping quiet while people keep posting these lies. If I will be hated for it, so be it. And I know I am not wrong. I go by what Jesus my Lord said, not man.
And I say this because I care, not to argue, but if you can post your beliefs about the rapture, so can I. As long as it is done in love.
Thanks for reading. God bless you even if you do not agree.
