Pretrib Rapture: God Severed The Land Of Goshen For The Sake Of Israelites, He Would Sever The Faithful Christians From His Wrath


Amos 3:6-7 KJV
"Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the Lord hath not done it ? [7] Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets."

So many Christians have fallen asleep for so long a time. They are in spiritual slumber. Today, God has forewarned us through His servants many a times, but many has failed to yield to and do something about the warning. 

In the Bible, whenever God wants to pour out His wrath upon the disobedient children or upon the world He always give out strong warning through His faithful servants. God does not punish the rebellious children with the obedient children. In time of God's wrath, He does draw a line of demarcation between the righteous and the unrighteous. 

In the time of Sodom and Gomorrha, God was determined to destroy her. Despite the nephew of Abraham was there, who happens to be the only righteous in the land. God confided in Abraham what He was about to do, and Abraham because of his nephew, lots, pleaded for the Lord to spear the nation and not to destroy the righteous with the wicked. But see what God told Abraham. 

Genesis 18:23-26 KJV
"And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked? [24] Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein? [25] That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right? [26] And the Lord said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes."

God showed that He can never destroy the righteous with the wicked. Lots in the land of Sodom and Gomorrha was the only righteous and the grace upon Lots was extended upon his entire house hold. We could see that Abraham pleaded for fifty righteous to ten righteous for God to spear Sodom from destruction, but unfortunately not even 10 righteous people was found and the Bible says, the Lord walked away from Abraham to execute His judgment upon Sodom and Gomorrha. 

Genesis 18:32-33 KJV
"And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten's sake. [33] And the Lord went his way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place."
Unfortunately, there was no one righteous except for Lots. Now, when God was about to destroy Sodom, He sent His angels to warn Lots and as well for Lots to pass the message to his family for them to escape, which he did and at the end, the wife of Lots was lost (destroyed) and his in-laws and some of his daughters too. Only Lots and two of his virgin daughters were saved. 

Genesis 19:1-3,12-15,17,22-26 KJV
"And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground; [2] And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant's house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night. [3] And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat. [12] And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place: [13] For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the Lord ; and the Lord hath sent us to destroy it. [14] And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law. [15] And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city. [17] And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed. [22] Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar. [23] The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar. [24] Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven; [25] And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. [26] But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt."

It is so fearful reading this passage of the Bible of what God is capable of doing. God knows does not favour you when you are a sinner even though you are a pastor, prophet, evangelist or whatever. He will met out His judgment upon all sinners not minding your position in the church or in the Lord. 

Ezekiel 18:24 KJV
"But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die."

Before God will pour out His wath upon any nation or even the world, He will first warn his children and take them out. He can't allow His wrath to fall upon His faithful children or servants. 

See the children of Israel for instance, in the land of Egypt. God was so angry with pharaoh and the Egyptians for suffering his children. Not only that, the nation of Egypt doesn't even know the true God and were not ready to acknowledge and succumb to the true God. God then demonstrated His power of judgment to prove His supremacy over the god of the Egyptians and others, but pharaoh and Egyptians were hardened. But before God started, He separated His true children and shielded them from His wrath. 

Exodus 8:22-23 KJV
"And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth. [23] And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be."

That was it! God shielded His true children from His wrath upon the land of Egypt. It shall be so also in the day of God's wrath when He would pour it out upon the world for their evil and all sorts of wickedness in the world. But before then, the rapture would take place. God will sever His true and faithful servants or children from the coming wrath of God. 

I know many Christians are in doubt about this, but it must surely be. The pretrib rapture is a consolation to all the believers in Christ Jesus who have been faithful to their calling. Thus, they have been keeping to God's word and are righteousness looking up to the coming of Jesus Christ not minding the persecutions, temptations, trials, and circumstances coming their way. 

Hebrews 9:28 KJV
"So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation."

Jesus will appear to the righteous Christians alone and will take them away from the face of the earth in a form whereby would trigger disaster all over the world. We have heard of those who have been seeing such revelation in dreams and visions over time without number. Do you think it's just infringement of their own imagination?

Remember the ten Virgins, five were foolish and other five were wise. The wise ones prepare themselves for the coming of Jesus but the foolish ones that also claim to be Christians were lacklustre, taking everything about their Christianity with a pinch of salt. The foolish were unserious, arrogant, and were compromising their faith until the time elapses and were left behind. 

Matthew 25:1-13 KJV
"Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. [2] And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. [3] They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: [4] But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. [5] While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. [6] And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. [7] Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. [8] And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. [9] But the wise answered, saying, Not so ; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. [10] And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. [11] Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. [12] But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. [13] Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh."

However, many Christians don't believe in the pretrib rapture. They think God would allow the faithful Christians to remain under the rule of the antichrist, that is not possible. We are not the children of darkness, we are of the light, which is Jesus Christ. Heaven and hell has no relationship. When God allows Satan to rule, He would first remove His children before the time. 



The rule of the antichrist is one of the ways God would allow the world to be dealt with. Satan, does not like anything good and he would rule the world with an iron hand without mercy. Therefore it is God's will upon the children of disobedience and those compromising and backsliding Christians. 

Exodus 10:21-23 KJV
"And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt. [22] And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days: [23] They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the CHILDREN OF ISRAEL HAD LIGHT IN THEIR DWELLINGS."

1 Thessalonians 5:4-9 KJV
"But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. [5] Ye are all THE CHILDREN OF LIGHT, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. [6] Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. [7] For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. [8] But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. [9] For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,"

If you really want to escape the coming God's wrath upon humanity, prepare now. Give your life to Jesus, repent of your sins and walk in righteousness of Christ Jesus, then you are sure of making the pretrib rapture.
