Quotes, if any, From Terry are taken from the above article.
If you have not read parts 1-3 of this series of posts, please do so before you pass on the opportunity to read from God’s own word what is truth concerning the timing of the resurrection and rapture.
In the past Three posts you learned from scripture why you are to be in the Tribulation. You have I’m sure been told that these scriptures do not really mean what they say, but deep down inside you have been pricked in your inner man by them. The disunity that is within the churches teachings concerning the most important doctrines are beginning to diminish before your very eyes. You are now aware of the place in God’s timing when the Rapture is to come. You are watching the falling away of men and women who had taught about the faith. You think, “It’s happening just as Our Lord and others including Paul had told us. Obviously there was disunity that had developed over the centuries on these doctrines; even concerning our salvation men have not agreed upon the truth of the very words of our Lord.”
You Remember what Terry James stated:
“[B]ecause all in this nation will have heard the Gospel. Beyond that stupendous event [the Rapture], some [specifically those who have heard the gospel before the Rapture] will have no chance to be saved from damnation. They will be lost for all eternity.”
You think: “He has said this of men and women left behind after a pre-Trib rapture. But here I am, and I have a choice. I can choose to follow Christ on the narrow road even in Tribulation, or I can choose to take the broad hi-way that my brother is beckoning me to follow.
Last night he said to me: “This is not the Tribulation, Think man, under Nero and under Hitler men like you thought they were in the Tribulation. Don’t be stupid. All this time we thought there would be a Rapture, but there is no Rapture. There is no Tribulation. Jesus will come to His temple in Jerusalem. If you don’t understand this you will soon wind up in one of these re-education camps.”
9 “Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. Matthew 24:9 NASB
Alien ships are now appearing daily in the sky above. You hear that those taken to these camps are being transported by God to some other planet for re-education. Others say that these are the Aliens beings from some other planet in space, and that they are those who placed us here on Earth to begin with. That they are the gods and our creators. These ships appear and disappear just as quickly.
About these you are thinking “We are told that they come from God, or that they are our creators, but I know they are demonic.”
You return one more time to the meeting place.
You say to the teacher: “I am hearing that this is the new age (the millennium). How do we know that it is not?”
The leader opens his bible to Luke 20, and reads:
Jesus said to them, “The sons of this [world and present] age marry and [the women] are given in marriage; 35 but those who are considered worthy to gain that [other world and that future] age and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage; 36 and they cannot die again, because they are [immortal] like the angels (equal to, angel-like). And they are children of God, being participants in the resurrection. Luke 20:34-36 AMP
We know from this teaching of Jesus that there is this age which is the age of mortal mankind, and then comes the next; in ‘this age there is marriage for us who are the future sons of God and only in this age, not the next. We know that this is then not yet the next age. Listen Jesus informed us of this time of tribulation:
Mark 13:17 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! (KJV)
So we know from His teaching us that the Tribulation is part of this present age not the next. We also know from these verses that the resurrection is associated with attaining to the next age and that Jews to whom Jesus was speaking when they are and will be saved are to be one with us as sons of God in the resurrection. One bride, one new man. Jesus was speaking to Jews sent by Jewish leaders in order to trick him, when He stated these truths. And yet these Jews who find Him will be just like us, sons of God, with no marriage.
Jesus warmed us that during this time to beware even of our brother if he should bring you a different message:
Mark 13:12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. (KJV)
Pray for your children and your family that you or they will not be deceived.
Mark 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. (KJV)
A note from the author.
I have written these 4 articles as well as the remainder of this blog, that you might know the scriptural reasons as to why our times are unfolding as scripture has stated. I and others believe that we the body of Christ, will be here during the Tribulation because of what the Bible says on these days. These scriptures are compatible in their teaching us concerning what is coming. I’m not saying that the Tribulation is coming today or tomorrow, but that it is sure to come as God’s word states it. The words that I base this on are not my own but God’s. I do not speculate about these words, but simply in faith believe them. If this is not what God intends then I am wrong, but when I stand before Him I want Him to know that I believed His word, because I believed Him to be the purveyor of truth, and He (the very word of God) I believed to be found more intimately within His written word. And though even the Bible itself could never contain all that He is; still we cannot find His truth anywhere else like we find it there. May God bless you and yours.
