Those Left Behind

THIS WILL HAPPEN!The opening video shows the events that will take place in a period of time that is yet future, and is known as the Tribulation and Great Tribulation, which increase in the effects from Godly judgments. The total tribulation period is a prophetic seven-year period of time when God will use His acts of wrath and judgment to draw unsaved Jews to saving faith in Christ, and to judge sin. As I watched the video, I did not notice any small children in any of the scenes, which is important, because no small children will be “left behind” when the catching up of the saints occurs. A quick study of the times of the tribulation can be found in Matthew 24:3-31. The scenes of the video are closely in sync with scripture. Other words that are used to describe the “catching up” are harpazo, rapio, and rapture, and relate to the removal of born again believers in Christ from the Earth before the Tribulation and Great Tribulation begin. Read on for more info.

The key to understanding the tribulation is that our world will be inhabited only by Jews and gentiles whom have not been born again, which means they will not have a relationship of saving faith in Christ. The born again process is one where people have their flawed spirits made as pure as the Spirit of Christ; it is accomplished by an act of the Holy Spirit, and without it, no one will see the Kingdom of God (John 3:3; 3:8). “Saint” is a word which identifies those whom have been born again. The “born again” body of believers in Christ are the “bride of Christ,” and comprise the true “church of Christ” (not of denominational identity). There were also Old Testament saints, whom were also born again prior to their deaths (John 3:3).

Preceding the tribulation, the “catching up of the saints” will occur. Only those whom have had their spirits born again will be “caught up.” The following three passages of scripture describe the catching up of the saints (i.e., born again believers in Christ; Church; bride of Christ). Each passage addresses only those whom have been born again (John 14:1-6; 1 Corinthians 15:50-54; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). In each passage, Christ returns to Earth from Heaven, but does not stand on the earth while He catches up born again believers in Christ, as well as deceased believers in Christ. The deceased saints will be resurrected from the grave and given perfect resurrection bodies (their minds/souls have been aware of their Godly relationship and presence, from the time of their death, Luke 16:19-24). The saints whom are alive, will be “caught up,” and will also be given perfect resurrection bodies and souls (the soul is the mind); their born again spirits have been dwelling within the Spirit of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit from the time of their new birth (John 14:16,17,20) (1 Thes 5:23…body, soul, spirit). The destination for Christ and His “caught up” and resurrected saints is the third heaven, where they will appear before the Judgment Seat of Christ, for spiritual rewards (2 Corinthians 5:10). This catching up event is only for born again believers in Christ. Just as the saints are the Bride of Christ (1 Cor 1:2, Eph 5:22-33), God is the Husband of Israel (Isa 54:5). When the saints are caught up, and exit their living bodies (2 Cor 5:8), there will be fallen clothes all over the world; the bodies of the caught up saints will have been made into spiritual bodies (1 Cor 15:50-53). There will be nothing of a mortal body to hold up humanly worn garments. From the judgment seat of Christ, the saints will go with Christ to the marriage of the Lamb, where the bride will be arrayed in fine linen, with the linen being the righteous acts of the saints (Rev 19:7-8). While all of the wonderful things that have been happening to the caught up saints of God, the events of the opening video will be taking place on earth until Christ and His bride return to earth for the Battle of Armageddon. Only those whom have been born again will be caught up and taken to the judgment seat of Christ, to be absent from the tribulation; will receive spiritual rewards; will stand next to Christ at the marriage of the Lamb; will return with Christ at His second coming to earth for the Battle of Armageddon. So, whom on earth, can we say will be the ones whom are occupying the earth and being subject to the judgments of God and the persecution of the anti-Christ (the anti-Christ is a tool of God)?

The Left Behind series of books and videos, as written by Dr. Tim LaHaye, achieved its purpose of provoking thought in the minds of more than eighty million purchasers of the Left Behind books. Many more people have viewed the videos.

The November 2008 USA elections resulted in a total Democrat federal leadership that took office in January 2009. Barack Obama (United Church Of Christ), became President. Joe Biden (Roman Catholic), became Vice President. Hillary Clinton (United Methodist Church) was appointed to be Secretary of State; John Kerry (Roman Catholic) replaced Hillary Clinton in 2013. Harry Reid (Mormon) became the Senate Majority Leader. Nancy Pelosi (Roman Catholic) became the Speaker Of the House Of Representatives. Each of these individuals, and every elected member of the Democratic Party, have three similarities of ungodly lifestyle, which is evidence that they have not been born again, and do not have the Spirit of God dwelling within their spirits, prompting them to righteous living. Those three common ungodly lifestyle issues are: 1. They all support slaughtering unborn babies in their mothers’ wombs. 2. They all support the homosexual lifestyle, to include same-sex marriage. 3. They all have not shown that they support Israel. There are Democrats who give lip-service to Israel, but no Democrat went to Jerusalem this year when President Trump moved the U.S. Embassy to the Capital of Israel in Jerusalem. No Jewish Democrats went to that celebration; only Republicans embraced Israel in the good news of moving the U.S. Embassy to the real capital of Israel. The results of the 2008 election show that the USA began being led by people that had no saving relationship with Christ as their Lord and Savior.

Ninety-nine percent of Republicans in Congress say that they are Christians. Eighty-one percent of Democrats in Congress say that they are Christians. Most members of the media are Democrat, as well as those of Hollywood and academia. From the legislation that Democrats support, in favor of abortion on demand, and homosexual issues, it indicates that the Democrats whom claim to be Christians are tied to liberal churches, such as those of the liberal National Council of Churches and World Council of Churches.

When the catching up of the saints occurs, and the tribulation begins, every born again believer in Christ, from all of the world, will no longer be in the world; they will be instantly taken to the Presence of God. Chaos will erupt! Aircraft will suddenly be without born again pilots. Born again truck drives will no longer be in the cabs of their trucks. Many cars will be driverless. Cities, states and nations will be without many peace officers! Many ICE agents will be missing (Democrats will love that!). All born again members of the world’s military forces will be gone. There will be no small children to be found, “anywhere!” Unborn again parents will be going “berserk,” as they search endlessly for their children. News agencies of ABC, CBS, NBC, CNBC, MSNBC, and their likes, will be almost totally staffed, as they begin their interviews of “religious leaders,” (many liberal “reverends,” will remain; they will not have been born again). These unsaved members of the media and clergy will try to convince those, that have also been left behind, that intruding aliens, or global warming, are responsible for the millions of people being missing. The media, academia, Hollywood, and the U.S. Congress, will blast out the message that missing children of Christian parents would have eventually become, “enemies of the world,” so, “no great loss.” World governments will be missing key leaders. The U.S. Senate and House of Representatives will be controlled and populated by Democrats; few of them will be caught up. The U.S. Constitution will be abolished. Hillary Clinton may finally be granted her life’s desire…the Democrat populated Congress will appoint her type as President. Supreme Court Justices Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch and newly appointed Kavanaugh, will be missing. Schumer and Pelosi types will quickly confer with the Hillary type, and rush through Senate confirmation, replacement justices whom will agree that unborn children have no protection from being slaughtered in their mothers’ wombs. Homosexuality will become as rampant as in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. The significance of Israel will be all but a fleeting memory in the minds of the liberal media, Hollywood, academia and the halls of a Democrat populated Supreme Court, Congress and Presidency. A Barack Obama type may very well be appointed to be the Secretary-General of the United Nations. Here are the procedures for the appointment of the Secretary-General Of the U.N. Article 97 of the UN Charter provides that, “The Secretary-General shall be appointed by the General Assembly upon the recommendation of the Security Council.” In other words, Article 97 creates a two-stage process: a recommendation by the Security Council followed by a decision by the General Assembly.” http://www.un.org/apps/news/html/sg-appointment-faq.shtml

The focus of the tribulation is “unbelieving Israel;” it has nothing to do with those whom have been born again. Jeremiah 30:7 (606 B.C.) calls that time, “Jacob’s trouble,” with Jacob being Israel. Daniel “9:20, 24-27,” (538 B.C.) discusses, “the seventieth week of Daniel,” which also relates to “unbelieving Israel.” There are many people of the thought that believers in Christ will go through the tribulation, or through its first part. So, I will ask those whom have an infant, or a small child; what will be the purpose for “those of innocence” to suffer from the judgments of God in the tribulation? I will also ask those of whom have a born again, personal, saving, relationship with Christ; what will be the purpose for you to go through “any part” of the tribulation? I’ll make it easy for you; there is no reason! Read on for more info.

The word “rapture,” is derived from the Greek word, “Harpazo,” and the Latin word, “Rapio.”

The origin of the word “Rapture”:

“Rapture” derives from the first person plural passive of the latin “rapio/rapere” (drag off, snatch, seize, carry off) which is “Rapiemur” in the Latin Vulgate translation. [The english word ‘rape’ also derives from rapio/rapere, so you can see how even rapiemur is not equivalent to ‘rapture’].

This latin word rapiemur is used in the Latin Vulgate translation in I Thess 4:17, which is itself translated from the greek “arpagēsometha”, the second future passive indicative of “harpazo”, which means to catch/sieze/carry away/snatch/obtain by robbery. A good way to picture this word is to imagine a king force ably taking his spoils of war.

To miss the rapture is to be “left behind,” to endure the judgments of God and the persecution of the anti-Christ (who will be a tool of God).

As we have seen, the only ones whom will be caught up from the earth will be born again believers in Christ. There are only two types of people; those whom have been born again, and those whom have not been born again. No one whom has not been born again will be caught up to receive spiritual gifts, join Christ at the marriage of the Lamb, and return to earth with Christ for the Battle of Armageddon. Therefore, the only ones on earth during the tribulation will be those whom had not been born again. Read on for more info.

Anyone whom has been born again, has the Spirit of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwelling within their spirit, as well as the spirit of everyone else whom has been born again (John 14:16,17,20). While the Holy Spirit dwells within each person’s born again spirit, the Holy Spirit is teaching them the things of God, and is prompting them to righteous living (John 14:26; 14:26-27; 15:26-27; 16:7-11). Until we have been given a resurrection soul (which occurs when we are caught up), we will not be perfect in all of our thoughts and actions. All of us make mistakes. But, a person who exhibits an ungodly lifestyle is one whom does not have the Spirit of God dwelling within their spirit.

A description of the great tribulation is provided by the following scripture.

Matthew 24:21 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

21 For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will.

Note. MacArthur Study Bible. 24:21 great tribulation. The words “has not been” and “nor ever shall be”—along with the description that follows—identify this as the yet-future time in which God’s wrath shall be poured out upon the earth.

The condition of the world during the time of Noah was so sinful that God intervened.

Genesis 6:11-13 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

11 Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth.

13 Then God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence because of them; and behold, I am about to destroy them with the earth.

The effects of the return of Christ to the earth for the Battle of Armageddon will be greater than the effects that accompanied the world-wide flood of Noah’s time. God gives his creation time to repent; when repentance does not occur, God deals swiftly and severely with sin. Such will be the response of God when He pours out His judgments on our sinful world during the Tribulation (2 Peter 3:8, 66 A.D.).

During the time of the tribulation, and the great tribulation, all judgments upon the earth, and on those whom will dwell on the earth, will come from God. Those judgments will be poured out in the forms of Seal Judgments, Trumpet Judgments and Bowl Judgments (Per Ryrie Study Bible notes, as follow:)

The Seven Seal Judgments. (Revelation 6:1-8:6) 1. Antichrist. 2. War. 3. Famine. 4. Death. 5. Martyrs prayers. 6. Great earthquakes. 7. Announcement of Trumpet Judgments. (Christ will break the seals that pour out these judgments. Rev 6:1).

The Seven Trumpet Judgments. (Revelation 8:7-9:21) 1. A third of vegetation burned. 2. A third of the sea judged. 3. A third of fresh water judged. 4. A third of luminaries darkened. 5. Increased demonic activity. 6. A third of mankind killed. 7. Announcement of Bowl Judgments.(Christ will break the seal that pours out these judgments. Rev 8:1).

The Seven Bowl Judgments. (Revelation 15:1 – 16:21) 1. Malignant sores. 2. Sea turned to blood.3. Fresh waters to blood. 4. Men scorched. 5. Darkness over the kingdom of the beast. 6. Invasion from the east. 7. Greatest earthquake and widespread destruction. (The voice of God orders the angels to pour out these judgments. Rev 16:1).

Earth Dwellers will be those whom will be left behind. Those, of whom have been born again, do not need to be tested further; when they were born again, there remained no more testing for them to determine their relationship with Christ. The earth dwellers will remain defiant to God, but will be tested to determine if they have come to saving faith in Christ as their Lord and Savior. There is no reason for little babies, or anyone else whom has been born again, to undergo the judgments of God.

Revelation 3:10 New King James Version (NKJV)

10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.

Revelation 6:10 New King James Version (NKJV)

10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?”

Revelation 8:13 New King James Version (NKJV)

13 And I looked, and I heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!”

Revelation 11:10 New King James Version (NKJV)

10 And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.

Revelation 13:8 New King James Version (NKJV)

8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Revelation 13:14 New King James Version (NKJV)

14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.

Revelation 17:8 New King James Version (NKJV)

8 The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

After the second coming of Christ at the Battle of Armageddon, those whom have been born again during the tribulation will go into the millennium. Those whom have not been born again will die and will be raised at the end of the millennium, where they will appear before the Great White Throne Judgment, and will be thrown into the lake of fire, which burns forever. Those whom have been born again, will go from the millennium to the eternal state of the new heaven, new earth and new Jerusalem where they will dwell forever with God and the Lamb, where the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple (Rev 21:22).

Hillary Clinton says “The unborn have no rights”

Here is the key to eternal life: “You must be born again (John 3:3).

  1. Thanks for this well written word of warning and sound advice.
    Very interesting post, I read recently a blog that said NO ONE who rejected the gospel prior to the rapture can get saved during the Tribulation because God will send a strong delusion on the heels of the rapture of the Church (2 Thessalonians 2:11,12) this disturbed me.
    Why would God send a strong delusion if He is unwilling that any should perish but come to a saving knowledge of the truth?
    I’m intrigued by your position on this! Thanks!

    1. Thanks for your like of my post, “Those Left Behind,” you are very kind. In affirmation of your position on those coming to faith in Christ during the tribulation, Matthew 25:31-36 discusses those gentiles whom ministered to Jews during the tribulation, and were given entry by Christ into the millennium. Those Jews may have been of the 144,000, and others, such as those of Matthew 24:40-41. They are Jews of the tribulation who were either “taken to judgment,” or left to enter the millennium. Those whom are taken to judgment will immediately die, and will be resurrected to be present at the great white throne judgment (Rev 20:11-15, from where they will be cast into the lake of fire, which burns forever (Rev 20:10). God’s punishment is 2 Thes 2:11,12, as well as Rom 1:18-25. Still, 2 Pet 3:8-9; 2 Tim 2:3-4 are truth of His desire for all to come to saving faith in Christ, Jeremiah 30:7 tells of the tribulation, and Jews being saved. The purpose of the tribulation is to draw unsaved Jews to Christ, and to judge sin. I will give you more info. I am afraid of losing this which I have typed.

    2. Ezekiel 36:1-8 tells of God cleansing the land of Israel of sin, which will be of all sin. “In one day,” Zech 3:9, ” will be the day that Christ and His saints return for the battle of armageddon, when the earth is purged of all sin. Those of Matt 24:36-41 will have been born again, but will not have been given resurrection bodies. They will be able to bear children during the millennium, of which many will not come to saving faith in Christ, and will join Satan for the battle of Gog and Magog, Rev 20:7-8, so sin will appear, at the end of the millennium but will be extinguished. We will be given, new heaven, new earth, new Jerusalem Rev 21:1-2, where we will be eternally with God/the Lamb Rev 21:22.
