Pretrib Rapture, Abraham And Lot

The Pretrib Rapture

The Pretrib Rapture And Sodom And Gomorrah

Pretrib Rapture, Abraham and Lot gives us another perspective. The Pretrib, Midtrib and Posttrib Rapture debate is going to rage on until Yehoshua (Jesus) returns. But let’s take a look at the subjuct once again.

This article isn’t a teaching about the Rapture. It’s more of a different perspective of the two best Pretrib Rapture Scriptures.

The following two passages came from the Messiah. On the surface they are clear as day. Those that Kept The Word Of Jesus’ Patience and those that Pray to be worthy to escape the Tribulation are going to be taken to Heaven in the Pretrib Rapture.

Believers that Keep The Word Of Jesus’ Patience will be kept from the hour of Temptation, like Abraham. They will watch the Judgment from a distance, on Earth. I tend to think they will not be taken in a Pretrib Rapture. They will have to stand for the Name of Jesus, through the Great Tribulation.

Revelation 3:10  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Believers who head for the big cities and follow Lot’s lead, and become a part of the city while remaining Righteous and just may be Saved like Lot was, by the skin of their teeth. They will have to be drug out of the cities kicking and screeamng like Lot. They will be lucky if they barely remain one step ahead of the Judgment. I tend to think they will not be taken in a Pretrib Rapture. They will have to stand for the Name of Jesus, through the Great Tribulation.

The Pretrib Rapture Has Scriptural Support, But So Does The Posttrib Rapture.

Luke 21:36  Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Now we need to consider Abraham, Lot, Lot’s wife and two daughters. In many cases the actions we take determine if we find ourselves subject to Tribulation and Judgment.

Genesis 13:5 ¶And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and tents.  6 And the land was not able to bear them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell together.  7 And there was a strife between the herdmen of Abram’s cattle and the herdmen of Lot’s cattle: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelled then in the land.  8 And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren.

Genesis 13:9 Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left. 10 And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar. 11 Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other.

The Pribtrib Rapture Is Comforting, But So Is Fighting The Good Fight.

Most of us are familiar with this topic. Abraham had to confront Lot because their employees were arguing. So Abraham let Lot pick where he and his herds would go. Abraham went the other way. Blessed are the Peacemakers. HaShem (The LORD God) had simply Blessed Abraham and Lot to the point there wasn’t enough room for both herds.

Where Lot may have messed up was to move his herds toward Sodom and Gomorrah. Somewhere along the way Lot left being a herdsman and took up residence in Sodom.

Genesis 13:12 Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.

Yes, Lot was delivered from the Judgment Sodom and Gomorrah suffered. But his choice to stay in Sodom after Abraham rescued him insured he would spend the rest of his life in Great Tribulation.

There is another aspect to why Lot stayed in Sodom. Like Job’s trials Lot may have been guided to Sodom by HaShem. HaShem doesn’t Judge people without offering them plenty of opportunities to Repent. Lot and his family was a witness against Sodom and Gomorrah. Sodom and Gomorrah ran out of time for Repentance.
Job and Lot may have done nothing wrong. HaShem used them in ways that we may never understand on this side of Heaven.

II Peter 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an example unto those that after should live ungodly;  7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:  8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)

Peter told us Lot was Just and Righteous.

The Pretrib Rapture is A Crutch?

Genesis 19:26 ¶But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.  27 ¶And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before theLord:  28 And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.

Sodom and Gomorrah are (completely) destroyed. Lot and two daughters were FOUND, “ worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass”. But Lot wasn’t kept from the hour of Temptation.

Abraham stood and watched from a distance the smoke from Sodom and Gomorrah rise, and because he, “kept the word of HaShem’s patience, Hashem kept Him from the hour of temptation, which came upon Sodom and Gomorrah”.

I’m in the middle of Lansing Michigan. I have the signs of Judgment surrounding me. Believers in the Appalachian Mountains and remote country areas are more likely to avoid Great Tribulation and Judgment like us in the large cities. Those in the cities are like Lot. Those Believers in remote areas might go unnoticed most of the Great Tribulation period.

Revelation 3:10  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Believers that Keep The Word Of Jesus’ Patience will be kept from the hour of Temptation, like Abraham. They will watch the Judgment from a distance, on Earth. I tend to think they will not be taken in a Pretrib Rapture.

Lot was at the edge of Judgment, barely one step ahead of it.

Luke 21:36  Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Believers who head for the big cities and follow Lot’s lead, and become a part of the city while remaining Righteous and just may be Saved like Lot was, by the skin of their teeth. They will have to be drug out of the cities kicking and screaming like Lot. They will be lucky if they barely remain one step ahead of the Judgment. I tend to think they will not be taken in a Pretrib Rapture.
With Covid-19 Passports required around the Earth and RFID Chips ready for our Hands and Foreheads I think it’s time to conclude 666 and the Mark of the Beast is upon us. New York and California are taking part in the mandatory Covid-19 Passports, so it can happen in America.
