I really wish that the Pre-Tribulation Rapture wasn’t a Lie. I really do. I wish that we didn’t have to go through three and a half years of extreme persecution. I wish that being a Christian meant that life was a serene experience of clear skies and smooth sailing.
Unfortunately, those of us who wish to live holy and righteous lives in Christ, WILL suffer persecution (2 Tim 3:12). When Paul wrote that to Timothy, he wasn’t thinking of the persecution that you and I have experienced – frowns, disapproval and lost jobs. No, he was referring to the persecution that Christians are experiencing right now in the Arab world – such as with ISIS and Boko Haram.

The persecution that THEY are experiencing is coming for us. We call it The Great Tribulation, but we would understand it better if we called it The Great Persecution. Unfortunately, that name has already been used to describe the horrible events during the time of emperor Diocletian.
Well, one thousand seven hundred and eleven years of practice since then, has allowed Satan to perfect his skill at destroying Christians. And soon, he will have one final chance at destroying the church that Jesus, our Lord and Savior built.
The good thing is that it will only last three and a half years, and there will be great reward for us, when it is all over.
However, we have many brothers and sisters in Christ who believe in a different story. They believe that we will NOT suffer the persecution of the Antichrist, and that belief has caused them to be careless. They aren’t preparing for ANY catastrophe, WHATSOEVER. And, it is because they have put their trust in a lie.
We all have something that we believe to be true, but is a lie. When I stand before the Lord, after this life is over, He will show me all that I got wrong, and will forgive me of those sins. (And yes, believing a lie is a sin.) But, a lie that disarms us and makes us vulnerable to Satanic attack… that goes beyond mere falsehood and straight into vile, filthy and outrageous deceit.
Satan created this lie to put you to sleep, so that he could work unopposed. That plan has been an amazing success, and now Satan is ready to put his vile kingdom into place. The next set of catastrophes that come upon us will be horrifying and will leave hundreds of millions – or, more likely billions – dead.
These catastrophes will set the stage for the arrival of the Antichrist. Satan will bring out his false savior to RESCUE the world from the disasters that HE created. However, these disasters will not be ‘The Tribulation’. They will only be what sets the world up for ‘The Tribulation’.
Unfortunately, I doubt that you will survive these initial catastrophes. You might, but I doubt it. Worse, once these disasters roll over us, you will be powerless in the face of what comes after.
You must not allow this Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie to rob you of the chance that you have right now to prepare spiritually and physically. We have been asleep for far too long. It is time to wake up and prepare for what is coming – so that we can serve the Lord.
Please remember that there is no point…
…if the point isn’t about serving the Lord.
WEEKEND SHOCKCAST: The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie
So, what did we talk about in this week’s series?
In this series about the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie, we talked about the Who, What, Where, When, How and Why of this Lie. We proved that it was a lie by showing the truth about When the Rapture happens. We described What the pretribbers believe and Why it is wrong. We talked about When and Where it came from and Who brought it to us – and How. We went into detail about the harm that it has already caused. We talked about What the tribulation really is, instead of what the pretribbers tell us. And, we had a few movies to end out the series.
So, let’s talk about that.

The Articles That You Will Find in This WEEKEND SHOCKCAST
PART ONE – The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie
I try to always ask God for direction before I write, because I truly want every word that I write to be what He wants you to read. I really do. It scares me that I would lead you astray in ANYTHING. Unfortunately, because I am fallible, you cannot trust my words completely. I really am no better than you are.
I say all that, because I wanted to write something else today. There are such dire threats facing us, that talking about spiritual lies seems like a waste of time. The problem is that you won’t heed my warnings, if you believe spiritual lies. So, here we go again.
Many responses to my article on the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie, were very troubling. It showed a desperate desire to hold onto this lie, even to the point of twisting the Bible, itself. And, I am shocked at the lack of evidence that pre-trib supporters have.
It has taken a week, but I have finally come to realize that the only way that you can support the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie, is to believe that it MUST exist. Only then can you bend the Bible to support your argument.
This is exactly how supporters of evolution have been able to explain their theory as fact. According to them, because God cannot be real, evolution must be true.
As I have looked over the evidence put forward by those who support the pretrib lie, I am amazed at how bad their evidence is. There is just no way that you can come up with such an obvious falsehood without external help.
Well, that external help came in the form of a Chilean Jesuit priest, Manuel Lacunza. And, I find it to be extremely significant that the origin of this pretrib lie was a member of such a devious organization – an organization that played a key role in the creation of the Illuminati, the Gestapo, the CIA, MK-Ultra, and in the corruption of Christianity.
So, let’s talk about the Jesuits and how they created the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie.
I know that it seems like this isn’t really all that significant, and three years ago, I might have agreed with you. But, we have brothers and sisters who are asleep, and you need tools to help wake them up.
Worse, as I dug deeper into this issue, I’ve found that the damage that this Lie has done isn’t limited to our ability to survive the Tribulation. It is corrupting our view of the Bible, and it has ALREADY caused horrifying trauma to Christians in far away places.
Like it or not, this Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie is just another version of the feel-good, prosperity doctrine from someone like Joel Osteen. It’s spiritual heroin, and it’s gotta’ stop.
I spent the day answering comments because I wanted to get a sense of what people believed – and why. And, it appears that some are mixed up about what will happen during the Great Tribulation.
Did you know that what we normally call the Great Tribulation is actually in two distinct parts?
That’s right, the first part is the rule of the Antichrist and his great persecution of Christians. I call it the Great Persecution. And, this is what most people mean when they say Tribulation.
The second part is the Wrath of God, when He destroys the Antichrist and all who follow him.
So, why do proponents of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie argue so vehemently against a post-tribulation Rapture?
Because they don’t want to suffer persecution.
Lord willing, we will get back to our normal fare of debt, death and destruction. So, let’s finalize this series with a movie. In fact, more than one.
I did not know about the Nicolas Cage film until after I started this series, and it makes me sick to think that Hollywood has added its weight to this lie. Hollywood has been a purveyor of lies from the beginning, so it should make you suspicious, whenever you find them involved.
But, there’s another movie that I like better, and it speaks the truth to this issue. And, THAT movie stars Pastor Steven Anderson.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
