A few days ago, the Lamb And Lion Ministries aired a cable television program in which they debated the issue of the pre- and the post-tribulation rapture. One of them claimed that the rapture of the saints of God will occur after the earth's tribulation, and that the saints would be hidden during the tribulation. Another claimed that the rapture of the saints will occur prior to the earth's tribulation, so as to protect them from the plagues that ravish the earth.
The truth is that the rapture occurs prior to the final days of the earth's tribulation, and shortly after the return of Jesus, the Messiah. In fact, the rapture already has occurred, the earth currently is in the final stages of the tribulation, and the saints of God are indeed protected because, for example, they have been rendered immune to the Coronavirus.
The most troubling aspect of their discussion is their presumption that the rapture entailed the saints' departure from the earth, and their subsequent return at a later point in time, after the tribulation has ended. If you view these television programs that speak of a departure from the earth, you have an obligation to advise them that the indwelling Holy Spirit Of God already has been poured out onto the earth, on all people of all faiths, that billions of people have become sealed and already have been raptured into the millennial kingdom of God, and that the tribulation is in full swing.
You also should tell them that although your spirit has been raptured, your body remains on the earth, and you will continue to be on the earth during Christ's millennial reign. Most importantly, ask them to please stop speaking of the soon return of Jesus, the Messiah and Christ, because as you know, he returned in April 2017. If they are not one of those who saw him coming on the clouds of heaven in April 2017, tell them that he soon will be fully revealed. They will not see him until they say, "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord." Matthew 23:39.
