The Church is set up for compromise and is deceived. We are unprepared for persecution, which has been the norm since the early church days.Church history shows a different story on the "end times" and the timing of "the resurrection" or "rapture". Starting with the students of The Apostle John who wrote Revelation; namely Polpcarp, Ignatius, and Papais, and going all the way through the 1870's; including Martin Luther, Johnathan Edwards, Charles Spurgeon, John Calvin. They all preached that The Church would go through most, if not all of The Tribulation.
I show you over 100 contradiction in The Bible for a Pre-tribulation Rapture. Scripture is very specific on the timiing of Christ's Return and The Raptue. There is no secrete return of Christ for his church, "When Christ who is your life appears, you will appear with Him in glory" (Col. 3:4).
Are you ready for what's ahead? Do you have enough oil in your lamps? Don't forget the parable of the 10 Virgins- they were not surprise, but they went out to meet the Bridegroom. There was no unexpected coming.
