Hi pastor Hughs I did read your blog on the rautrpe and i respectfully disagree with you views on it and if you will allow me i am going to back up my viewfrom the Book THE POPULAR ENCYCLOPEDIA OF BIBLE PROPHECYfrom Rapture on page 309 -316 A Posttribulation Rapture is InconsequentialIf God miraculously preserves the church through the tribulation, why have a Rapture? If it is to avoid the wrath of God at Armegeddon (at the end of the tribulation), then why would God not contune to protect the saints on earth ([sorry] as is postulated by posttribulation) just as he protected Israel (see Exodus 8:22; 9:4,26; 10:23; 11:7) from his wrath poured out Pharaoh and Egypt?Further if the purpose of the rautrpe is for living saints to avoid Armageddon, why also resurrect the saints (who are already immune) at the same time?If the rautrpe took place in connection with our Lord's posttribulation glorious appearing, the subsequent seperation of the sheep and the goats (Matthew 25:31-46) would be redundant. Separation would have taken place in the very act of translation.If all Tribulation-era believers are rautrped and glorifed after the Tribulation and just prior to the inauguration of the millennial kingdom, who then will be left to populate and propagate the Kingdom? The Scriptures indicate that God will judge the living unbelievers at the end of the Tribulation and remove them from earth (see Matthew 13:41-42; 25:41). Yet they also teach that children will be born to believers during the millenium and that these children will be capable of sin (see Isaiah 65:20; Revelation 20:7-10). This would not be possible if all the believers on earth were glorified through a posttribulational rautrpe.A posttribulational rautrpe and the church's supposed immediate return to earth leaves no time for the bema the judgment seat of Christ (1 Corinthians 3:10-15; 2 Corinthians 5:10). for these reasons, a posttribulation rautrpe makes no logical sense. A pretribulation rautrpe, by contrast, does not leave us with these insurmountable difficulties. thank you for your ear I only copied one part of the article for compression sake and I am fine if you disagree with me as I just have a laymen's education in biblical Eschatology my email is always open and I am on facebook as well so you can add me and discuss I am always open to discussing topics
