I think I’ve mentioned a time or two before about getting to know your Bibles. :) I know the Word more than I ever have and I’m so excited to keep learning more and more. God changes me and surprises me with His work again and again. Love it.
I have a question for y’all. Before I ask it you have to remember something. It isn’t about what you think, and it isn’t about what you have been taught, it isn’t about what the pastor always says. I am asking YOU a question, so don’t run off and ask some smartie Bible person for an answer (though I would appreciate smartie Bible people leaving comments!). Think for yourself on this one.
If you are a Christian than you have heard about the ‘signs of the times’ more than ever these days. There are some scary looking things afoot in the world and we need to be ready. My hubby and I have been talking about it (actually, he’s been talking about and I patiently listen :), and I had a question for him. “So, do you know beyond the shadow of a doubt, from Scripture, that we are not going to be here for the Tribulation?”, says I. Hubby paused and said in an unsure voice, “Not really.”
I want to know.
I was always taught from Scripture that we wouldn’t be here. Rapture then Tribulation, that’s the way its supposed to be, right?? I had no idea that there were Christians out there who believed differently. And I don’t know the Scriptures well enough to be able to say for sure one way or another. Sure, there are lots of verses I can use to make what I always thought was true seem like it is actually the right way, but I want to know what the Bible really says… for sure.
So, what say you? I’d like to know what you think. What Scripture(s) do you base it on? I’m opening it up for big time discussion. All comments will be appreciated.
