"taken are the wicked that will be destroyed, caught up are the righteous.." Very insightful Mike. The coming of the Lord will be as the days of Noah in a number of ways. One of which will be just as the wicked were destroyed in the flood, they will be destroyed at His coming with fire. Jos 7:15>Zec 14:12 And just as Noah and His family were lifted above the flood, so will the righteous be lifted above the wrath being poured out upon the wicked. Another that will be just as it was in the days of Noah, the wicked will not know what is to come until the fire of His wrath takes them away. Mat 24:39


The John Darby Rapture
  
"The saints that are in the tribulations are those who have been saved during this terrible time." John I know that you do not consider me a Christian, but I am asking you, Christian, how exactly would that be possible when "the son of perdition" stands in the temple of God declaring himself to be God? The deception of that time shows great signs and wonders, so great that if it were possible antichrists would deceive even the very elect. I'm thinking that statement suggest that a lot of people will be deceived during that time, but it also suggest that without the established and enduring saints, no one would be saved.

Again, a correction. This statement should read "Father's wrath is poured out upon those who worshipped the beast, received his mark, advocated a conformity to his deception, and participated in the tribulation [of] His saints." I read my responses over and over again before I send them and still somehow miss little things that completely alter what I am attempting to convey. That is until after they are posted, totally frustrating, yet no ones fault but my own. My apologies.

John asked me "Why don't you think the Great Tribulation is God's Wrath"?

Because John, as I alluded earlier, Father's wrath is pour out upon those who worshipped the beast, received his mark, advocated a conformity to his deception, and participated in the tribulation His saints. When? At His Son's return, in His presence, and the presence of His Angels. Rev. 14:9-11 The start of that wrath is represented in Mat 24:29-31 It is at that time that the wicked shall be destroyed with the brightness of His coming as He takes vengeance on them, 2 Thes 2:8 and the end thereof they "shall be punished with an everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord". 2 Thes 1:8,9

"Sir, see, Rev 6, 9, and 16 that states the Great Tribulation is God's Wrath.." This line was meant tto read "Where, specifically is that stated or implied?"

"Sir, see, Rev 6, 9, and 16 that states the Great Tribulation is God's Wrath.." Where, specifically is that stated of implied? Please point out the verses. Those chapters seem to refer mostly to things that take place after the trib. According to Rev. 14:9 the wrath is poured out upon those who worshipped the beast and received his mark, not by them. They will be tormented "in the presence of the holy angels and the Lamb". The when of this torment is documented in 2 Thes 1:10 Other refs Isa 13:6,9>Jer 46:10>Amo 5:18, the day of the Lord is the day of His return, and "that day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation," Zep 1:15.

The words caught up in 1 Thes 4:17 refers to being preferred and taken, as plucked from our earthly bodies and placed within our eternal bodies, then along with the risen dead who were also clothed with their eternal bodies we will meet (defined encounter, 529 strongs) the Lord in the air (breath) or our resurrected essence. This is documented in the line of that verse that reads and so shall we ever (defined always, evermore, 3842 strongs}, be with the Lord. Witnessing verse 1 Cor. 15:51,52. The Change is this corruptible (image of the Earthly) verse 48 putting on incorruption (image of the heavenly). The word clouds refers to the vast number of angels that will accompany Jesus during His return. Documented in (2 Thes. 1:7,10)

John9346 the "great tribulation isn't God's wrath, it involves a great deception. The second coming of Jesus brings the wrath of God. 2Th 1:7-9. The saints are protected in that they are glorified in Him "in that day." verse 10.

David, something for you to consider. The reign of the elect is on earth, not in heaven, unless of course you are referring to the reign of Jesus on earth during the millennia, as Heaven. In that case you would indeed be correct, for that will be what is referred by Jesus Himself as the kingdom of Heaven.

"Does God need to wait 1800 years to reveal a new doctrine?" No.
Father, as far as I know, has not revealed any doctrine not found in the pages of scripture.

Jesus answered ...there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be...Immediately after the tribulation of those days.... the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven,...And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect... from one end of heaven to the other. Mat. 24:3-31> 2Th 2:1-3 [Jesus came once, He will come again. I know of no intermediate coming]. I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand, And he laid hold on the dragon,... which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years. Rev 20:1,2 This thousand years represents the millennia.


Shaming The Men
  
No man, confident of his own masculinity can be emasculated, or shamed. Any attempt to do so will be seen for what it is, humorous and unfounded, and certainly no cause for offense. Why, or rather how can a family of more than three children be made fun of? The question makes no sense to me. Minding our own business should be easy, if we prefer not to have others in ours.

Jesus Himself was the fulfillment of a promise made concerning Israel. For "Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world." Jesus is the mediator of the new and better covenant made with the house of Israel and the house of Judah. Act 13:23>Act 5:31>Tit 2:11>1Jo 4:14>Heb 12:24>Heb 8:8


Christ In You
  

"Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn: [and] whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. [Jesus] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible,..And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead,.. Neither is there salvation in any other: Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life."


Christ In You
  
Relative to Israel, prophetic of Jesus, "When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt." The fulfillment, "When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son."
When Jacob, a descendant of Abraham, a descendant of Eber, of whom the Hebrew nation was named, was renamed Israel, it was given symbolically, and in the hebrew language the literal meaning of the name, as concerning Jacob, is "to prevail, and have power as a prince", as concerning Jesus, "he will rule as God".


Christ In You
  
"We are not placed into Israel, covenant.." "Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh,...at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us," See Eph 2:11-22
