The second area of the Bible that many preachers say proves the pre-tribulation rapture, is Revelation 4:1. This verse sa…

ys the following….
Revelation 4:1 “After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.”

Many preachers point out that since John’s spirit is actually taken up to Heaven, and since his being taken up to heaven occurs before the tribulation, then this means that all believers are going to be raptured up to heaven before the tribulation ever begins. These preachers say that John is symbolic of all believers. These preachers say that John being taken up to heaven is actually the rapture in the end times, and that it occurs before the tribulation.

But Revelation 4:1 is God talking directly to the Apostle John, and no one else. God isn’t talking to you or me or to any other believers or to the church. God is talking only to John and telling him to “come up here”. God is talking only to John, because he wants John to write in the Book of Revelation what both believers and non-believers can expect during the tribulation of the end times. Revelation 4:1 is a conversation between God and John and no one else, and to read into this verse a pre-tribulation rapture theory is totally wrong and extremely misleading.

Then look at the very next verse and see what that says.
Revelation 4:2 “Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne.”

So satan loves the pre tribulation rapture theory and may be the one who originated it and the one who keeps it going. The great deceiver loves to see people in a state of false assurance and false security. And this is for a number of reasons, the main one being that it allows believers not to think about certain critical decisions that they will have to make during the terrible persecutions that take place during the end times. Primarily whether the believer is going to renounce Jesus Christ and pledge allegiance to satan, for if the believer does not do this he will probably experience great pain and death.

People are terrified of this possible situation. They don’t want to even think about the eternal consequences of giving in and allowing satan’s 666 to be placed on them, because if they accept the number of the beast, then they are going to lose God for all of eternity. Likewise, if they refuse Satan’s number then they know that they will be in for some very horrible pain and death. The pre tribulation rapture theory simply allows people to believe; “It doesn’t matter, I won’t be here anyway”. Belief in the pre tribulation rapture theory is an extremely good example of living in a state of false security.

So if they can just convince themselves and believe in the pre tribulation rapture theory, then they feel that they will not have to make those decisions because they would have already been raptured. These will be the same people expecting to be raptured right up to the time satan says “Accept my number or die”. With absolutely no preparation, what do you think most of those people will do?

So the next time you see a minister talking about the pre tribulation rapture, watch as he describes the horrors that are going to fall upon the people of the world. He will describe the terror and the hardships that they will have to go through, the billions that will suffer and die, the plagues that will descend upon them. He will go on like this for quite a while, all the time describing truly horrible conditions. And then suddenly a light bulb will go on, and he will say something like, Oh, but don’t worry, We won’t have to worry about all that because we would have been raptured out of here before all that starts. Can you just see the millions that look their pastors in the face and ask, “Why didn’t you tell us? Why have you lied to us? Why have we been so deceived about the tribulation that we now find ourselves in? Why have you let us become so vulnerable? Why didn’t you prepare us to have the faith that we would need?” Why haven’t you told us the truth? A great many people will be asking a lot of questions of their religious leaders.

I expect that many sincere people will be overwhelmed when the great tribulation begins and they discover they are still on earth. Many will bitterly lament their unprepared state because they were erroneously led to believe they would escape this horrible tribulation. I am afraid that millions will abandon their faith in God because they will be highly disappointed with their church, their leaders, and their prophetic faith. Most will blame God for the unbelievable problems that they suddenly find themselves in, and of course, this will make satan very, very happy.See More
