How to unrapture the rapture
How to un-rapture the rapture is a series of lies exposed in a quick format in order that you may un-rapture yourself from this false and dangerous teaching. Each point is quick and concise so you may grasp the bigger picture at a faster pace. This booklet may shock you and offend at first, however, its intent is to “bring you out” of the “clouds” of a great end-time deception. Let’s look at some of these lies in this false doctrine.
1. That Jesus Christ will come back twice. Not true. No matter what terms are searched in the Bible, “the day of the Lord”, “the coming of the Lord”, “that day”, “thy coming”, or any other terms referring to the second coming, the fact is none are plural; all are singular. In fact, Jesus Christ never spoke of coming back twice! Also, the church from the beginning has always, until recently, expected one return of Christ.
2. That Christians will not face tribulation. Not true. Many pre-tribbers like to say that “God is not a wife beater”, suggesting that we will not go through great tribulation. Yet the Bible says “we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God”, and “many shall be purified, and made white, and tried”, and “it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them”. Also, Jesus said “he that endures to the end shall be saved”!
3. That the great tribulation will last fronly seven years. Not true. If you search the N.T. for one verse mentioning a seven year tribulation, the reality is, that you will not find even one! If you search for one verse in the N.T. for the article “the” in front of “great tribulation” you won’t find it either. Although in the Greek, “mega tribulation” is in the N.T., yet you won’t find “the great tribulation” as a distinct and seven year period. It just doesn’t exist.
4. That Daniel’s 70th week has been postponed for over 2000 years. Not true. Daniel’s 70 weeks in chapter nine are broken into three section; 49, 434, and 7, totalling 490. But they don’t have a pause of time in-between them. They have conveniently inserted a gap of time between the 69 and 70th week and stopped the fulfillment of this prophecy. Then they say that the 70th week will resume at the rapture of the church! This has not been the teaching of the church until recently. There is no gap of an undetermined amount of time in Daniel chapter 9.
5. That Antichrist is just one man coming at the end of the world. Not true. The apostle John said, “Even now are there many antichrists”! The book of Daniel chapter 7 shows us that a beast is a government or kingdom and not a single person. There has been an evil ruling power in place for a long time. “The mystery of iniquity doth already work” is the clear teaching of scripture!
6. That the temple will be soon rebuilt and animal sacrifices offered again. Not true. Again, where in the N.T. do we find a clear prediction that the Jerusalem temple will be rebuilt? Certainly Matthew 24 shows us the opposite; a total destruction. Furthermore the book of Hebrews shows us that the sacrificial system (including where these sacrifices would be offered) has been forever done away with because they were merely types and shadows.
7. That the church is missing in the book of Revelation. Not true. The claim is that between Rev. 4 and 19 the church is not mentioned once. Yet the saints are mentioned numerous times in the book of Revelation in these chapters. This view forces them to invent two classes of saints; tribulation saints and church age saints. Conversely, the word repentance is also missing from the gospel of John. But the apostle John uses the word repentance in Revelation. Likewise we also see saints all over the book of Revelation, therefore the church is in there, even though the word ‘church’ is not used. An argument from silence doesn’t prove a pre-trib rapture. Furthermore, in Rev.22:16 John says “I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches”. The entire book is for the church!
8. That the good people will be raptured up to heaven before bad people are judged. Not true. “One will be taken and one left” is about judgment and not escape. The kingdom parables often teach the opposite that judgment comes first to un-believers; not that believers escape tribulation.
9. That the rapture will be a secret event only witnessed by saints. Not true. The Bible says, “Every eye will see him” and “this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven”. We have been warned by Christ that when they people say “he is in the secret chamber” to not believe it. Many false groups believe in a secret coming of Christ since 1830, like J.Ws., Adventists, including pre-tribbers.
10. That the elect are Jewish people and the church is distinct from them. The Bible says, “there is neither Jew nor Gentile” and “who hath made both one”! The teaching that during the tribulation and in eternity, Jews and Gentiles will be separated and distinct, is a lie. This was clearly prophecied in Hosea and other O.T. scriptures that we would be made one new man forever, not temporarily.
11. That the Holy Spirit will be removed from earth at the rapture. Not true. The Bible says “lo, I am with you till the end”. The Book of Revelation shows many saints present on the earth during tribulation. How did they get saved without the convicting power of the Holy Spirit? If the Holy Spirit is removed, would it not be impossible to be saved? The Holy Spirit will not be removed.
12. That those who don’t teach pre-trib rapture are by default teaching replacement theology. Not true. The fact is, it is pre-tribbers who teach replacement theology. They replace the church which is comprised of Jew and Gentile with national un-repentant Israel. The “Israel of God” and “one is a Jew inwardly” is ignored.
13. That the pre-trib rapture has been taught from the beginning of the church. Not true. It was not until 1830 that the pre-trib rapture doctrine surfaced. The first few century saints wrote nothing of a secret rapture of the church. Post reformation Jesuits have introduced this teaching to divert attention from the antichrist system that has been exposed for a long time; that wicked whore of Babylon, the Roman Harlot. Research Ribera, Bellarmine, and Lacunza; three well known Jesuits and their teachings on end-times and you will be shocked at their diversion tactics to remove the spot light from the already revealed anti-christ system.
14. That the rapture doctrine is not a salvation issue and therefore is unimportant. Not true. If the antichrist system has been identified a long time ago and many saints have already been martyred for exposing it, then it is an important doctrine indeed. If God wanted to show us who we would be battling against, would He not reveal it to us? (“that man of sin be revealed”)? This must be important!
15. That people will still be able to get saved after the rapture happens. Not true. People are expecting to leave their favourite end time teaching materials behind for loved ones in the hopes that they will be saved after a pre-trib rapture. This boils down to second chance theology! If the rapture happens the way they expect, then you would still have seven years to get right with God and repent. Obviously this is false; “no man knows the day nor the hour”, and “I come like a thief in the night”!
16. That at the pre-trib rapture the saints will partake of the marriage supper of the Lamb in heaven. Not true. The word “to meet” the Lord in the air means that after we meet him in the clouds we escort Jesus back to earth for the final judgment, not to heaven for the marriage supper. The same word is used in Acts 28:15 where the Roman believers met Paul to escort him to Rome, not back to Jerusalem.
17. That the unconverted Jews are still considered the elect of God. “Ye are of your father the Devil” and “they say they are Jews , and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan” are assessments of those unconverted Jews whom Paul claimed that for “the gospel sake are they our enemies”. Then the next verse says they must repent. Natural unconverted Jews are not any better than any other race that have not repented and put their trust in Jesus. Jews only become elect when saved through Jesus Christ.
18. That O.T. promises to Israel must be fulfilled unconditionally and literally in the N.T. Not true. Many promises were fulfilled spiritually. These promises had conditions attached and were dependant on faithfulness to God. God is not obligated to keep any promises if man breaks the conditions attached to those promises. Read Numbers 14 for the breach of promise.
19. That the Bible is broken up into seven dispensations. Not true. The word dispensation, although found in the epistle to the Ephesians doesn’t warrant the breaking up of the Bible into seven dispensations. The clear teaching of the Bible is only two covenants, the Old and the New, and not seven dispensations.
20. That the rapture is imminent and is the next prophetic event to happen. Not true. The Apostle Paul warned that the “that day of the Lord shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed”, implying certain events would happen before the day. The Apostle Peter was told that he would die before the Lord came back. Honestly, pre-tribbers don’t even believe in the imminent return. One of their authors wrote “88 reasons why Jesus will come back in 1988” and as such, they sound much more like Jehovah’s Witnesses and Millerites who failed in their date setting schemes many times over.
In summary, once you begin to realize that the secret pre-trib rapture’s origin is late in history (1830), and that this involves Jesus Christ coming back not once but twice, and that the church made up of Jews and Gentiles was really never meant to be according to this doctrine, but was merely plan B, then you begin to see the major issues this teaching leads to. For example, the emphasis becomes a political kingdom, a return to Judaism, sacrifices, rebuilt earthly temple, etc. Furthermore, an extreme literal interpretation forces many Bible doctrines to be doubled, such as two returns of Christ (secret rapture and second coming), two resurrections (one for the saints and one for the lost), two elect people (the Jews and the Church), two temples (a spiritual and an earthly), two anti-christ systems (the Beast and False Prophet), two modes of salvation (faith for the church and commandments for the Jews). Will you believe in two returns of Christ, that the church was never the plan of God, that the kingdom will go back to Old Testament Judaism? Do you really believe the church is exempt from tribulation? Will you believe the teaching that just surfaced for the first time in 1830? Do you really believe the Holy Spirit will be removed from this earth?
Once you know the truth it will set you free.
