Rapture Or Tribulation

Rapture or Tribulation?

Rapture or Tribulation?

Rapture or Tribulation?

This is the choice that everyone on earth must make while they are here. Will they accept the pardon for sin as provided by God through His Son Jesus Christ and His completed work on the Cross? Or will they choose to remain in the natural unrepentant state and go through the wrath of God during the Tribulation period?

The sad fact is that the Bible says that most people will choose to remain in the natural unrepentant state and lead themselves down the wide path of destruction to Hell. The Bible says that narrow is the gate that leads to salvation and wide is the gate that leads to destruction.

Will you choose the Rapture or will you choose the Tribulation? The choice is yours. Please make the right choice and choose Jesus Christ today.

What is the Rapture?

The rapture is when the Lord Jesus Christ will return from Heaven. Jesus will return in the clouds, with the trumpet call of God, and all true believers will rise to meet him in the air. We will then receive glorious resurrection bodies suitable for eternity and return to Heaven with Him.

On the other hand, those who sit on the fence or who refuse to make a decision for Jesus Christ will find themselves going through the worse seven years on earth the world has ever seen. This period of time is known as the Tribulation period. This is a time of unparalleled destruction and death as God’s wrath is poured out on unrepentant sinners. Another purpose of the Tribulation, besides punishment and judgment, is to bring about the national redemption and regeneration of unbelieving Israel.

What Keeps Us from the Rapture?

Ever since the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, we have been under a terrible curse that has not only effected mankind, it has also effected the total sum of the Creation as well. Sin came into the world when Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the garden. The result of sin is death.

However, God has provided a remedy for our sin problem. And that remedy is the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross. All we have to do in order to be saved is to believe in the One God sent.

“Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.” (John 6:28-29)

Don’t Delay Being Ready for the Rapture

Jesus Christ took upon himself the totality of mankind’s sins on the Cross and paid the sin debt in full. It is a debt that no man could ever pay. In fact, the Bible says that all our good works are like filthy rags. We could never do anything to earn our own salvation. It took the Lord coming down to earth and paying that sin debt for us, so that we could be redeemed.

I strongly encourage those who have delayed in making a decision for Jesus Christ to reconsider and make it today. You will not regret it making Jesus your Lord and Savior. But you will regret not doing so. The truth is that the eternal destiny of billions of people in the world are at stake with how they respond to this critical decision. Once you take your last breath on this earth, your decision is recorded and your fate is sealed.

I would like to call on everyone that has not done so already, to make this important decision today between going up in the rapture or staying behind in the tribulation. Your decision will have eternal consequences.

The Bible says that God does not desire that any perish but that all come to faith in Jesus Christ. We all have Free Will and God will respect that. He will not force you to make a decision that you do not want. We are all in charge of our own eternal destinies.

Please, call on the name of the Lord today, so that you will go up in the rapture when Jesus calls His Church to glory. Please, do not delay and take a chance on being around for the Tribulation period.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” – (John 3:16)

God bless you all.
