Left Behind but Not Forgotten-Tribulation Saints
by Gregory Booker 8/07/2013 / Prophecy
The specific tribulation period of the book of Revelation is a time which God reveals His Wrath against sin and unbelief. In the normal course of living in this cursed world suffering and disciplining is a part of this life but it does not represent God's wrath. As one who believes in a pre-tribulation rapture from various scriptural readings, there is one caveat that makes such a timing more profitable to getting people to yield to Jesus and walk into heaven.
When the rapture happens, especially a pre tribulation rapture, it seems quite apparent that all those people in the church and even those not in the church will be aghast, yes stunned, at the reality of such an event. Clearly their position of unbelief would be have been proven wrong. Their tears will flow in the streets and at the altar because the literal word of God will also be manifested before them.
This awakening will provide hope to the those left behind that they can still be found in favor with Jesus. This is God's grace still working before men. Under our present conditions things are generally calm and non intrusive into our lives. As a result, many people are noncommittal and complacent. The wisdom of the Word suggest that as a tribulation saint many will turn to Jesus when under present conditions this simply would not happen, dying of old age in their unbelief. Call it God's grace for it is is greater...still!!
All the allegorizing...spiritualizing...symbolizing and anything else will fall to dust as the literal interpretation of the word of God will rise up from the ashes of Time. The rapture occurring at this time, I believe, will do more to empower faith to those left behind than anything you or I could do through the Church. Some things belong to God and this will be to his glory and to magnify Himself before mankind.
All of a sudden the Book of Revelation is no mystery for it can be read like an instruction guide as the New Jerusalem which is our mansion of many rooms is set to come down. But first a nation called Israel is also left behind and surrounded by a world of unbelief. God will then have some deliverance yet to be performed in honor for all the work He has done through them to facilitate the gospel to the Gentiles. And His Name will be glorified and His Nation will be redeemed and His Church will be honored. All in our Robes of righteousness.
I have other utterances that brings much light in to our hearts in my book "Inspired Writings of a Prophet for Jesus the Christ" released this year under press release link http://www.prweb.com/releases/2012/2/prweb9173531.htm ...
