Preparing yourself for the study of God’s Word

Before we begin, if you are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ (that is— you have trusted in Him for eternal life), it is important to prepare yourself to take-in God’s Word so take a moment to name, cite or acknowledge your sins privately directly to God the Father. This will assure that you are in fellowship with God the Father and the Holy Spirit’s convicting ministry, also called the convincing ministry will then be able to teach you as the Holy Spirit is the real teacher and the pastor’s message is the vehicle the Holy Spirit uses to convince you what you are learning is true or not.

1 John 1:9 says—“If we confess [simply name, cite or acknowledge to God the Father] our sins [known sins], He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins [known sins] and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness [all unknown and forgotten sins].” NKJV (New King James Version)

If you have never personally believed in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior (that is, believed in Him for eternal life), the issue for you is not to name your sins to God; the issue for you is to believe by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life and you will be saved the very second you believe in Him:

John 6:47 says: “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me [Jesus Christ] has everlasting life.” NKJV

Notice again what John 6:47 says, “he who believes in Me [Jesus Christ] has everlasting life.” It doesn’t say, “will have”; it says, “has.” Therefore, the very moment you believe Jesus Christ’s promise of everlasting life, you have it (it’s really just that simple), and it can never be lost or taken away from you (John 10:28-29). Furthermore, the gift of everlasting life (also called eternal life in scripture) is available to every human being; there are absolutely no exceptions.

John 3:14-18 says: “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” NKJV

Let us now bow our hearts and take a moment to prepare for learning God’s Word, if there is any known sin in your life, this is the time to just cite it privately to God the Father with your thoughts directed towards Him. With your head bowed and your eyes closed, you have total privacy in your mind and soul:

Doctrine of the Pivot; Part 25. Will the church go through the tribulation period?

2Ti 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and discipline.
God said to the church at Philadelphia “I will take you out of the hour which is to come upon the world to test those in the world; [Those who are alive in the Tribulation period].
Inasmuch as the Church Has Been Perfected and Delivered from All Judgment (Rom 8:1; John 5:24; 1Jo 4:17), If She Is Subjected to Judgment Again the Promises of God Would Be of None Effect and the Death of Christ Would Be Ineffectual.

Rev 3:10 – John writes that when the tribulation period comes, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, we will not be here.

The Nature of the Church, which is the fact that she is holy, blameless and beyond reproach prevents such a testing.”

Rev 13-18, makes it clear that all who are in the 70th week or the Tribulation period are brought into subjection to the beast and through him to Satan who gives the beast power, unless they become born-again and saved which more than likely will cost them their life.

If the church were in this period she would be subjected to Satan and Christ would either lose His place as head or because of His union with the Church, He would be also subjected to Satan’s authority.

1. First of all, the great Tribulation is punishment for a Christ-rejecting world, and the nation of Israel, who rejected her Messiah, Rev 6:12-17.

2. The nature of the church, and the promises of Christ forbid the church from going thro¬ugh the great Tribulation.

3. There must be an interval or a period of time between the Rapture and the Second Coming.

4. The scripture’s which deal with the great tribulation have particular reference to the Jew, Matt 24:1-31; Mr 13:14; Luk 21:23-36.

The abomination of desolation has to do with Jerusalem and the Temple, Dan 11:31 “And forces from him will arise, desecrate the sanctuary fortress, and do away with the regular sacrifice. And they will set up the abomination of desolation.”

The Sabbath is for the Jews only, Exo 31:16.

Exo 31:16 ‘So the sons of Israel [the sons of who? Israel] shall observe the Sabbath, to celebrate the Sabbath throughout their generations [whose generations?] as a perpetual covenant.’

Exo 31:17 “It [the Sabbath] is a sign between Me and [who?] the sons of Israel [for how long?] forever; for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, but on the seventh day He ceased from labor, and was refreshed.”

Luk 13:6, the fig tree represents the nation of Israel, And He {began} telling this parable: “A certain man had a fig tree which had been planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it, and did not find any.

The Church is never mentioned; Temple implied; abomination of desolation denoted.

5. The Tribulation is mentioned as a gross time of darkness, evil, and sin, where none have faith. Isa 60:2; Jer 13:16; Luk 18:8.

6. Satan persecutes the women in the Tribulation (Israel). The church is not to come under condemnation. Rev 12:1-4; Rom 5:9, 8:1; 1Th 1:10, 5:9; 1Co 15:55-57; 1Th 4:13-18.

7. The Church is not of the world. John 17:14; Php 3:20; 2Ti 2:3-4.
The church is a spirit¬ual extension of Jesus Christ, with promises that are heavenly related. Eph 1:3, 2:6.

8. Christ is preparing a home for His body the Church, and has promised to return and to take His bride back with Him, John 14:3; 1Th 4:13-17.
John 14:3 “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to Myself; that where I am, {there} you may be also.”

9. The Church has been promised deliverance from the wrath to come. Rom 5:9; 1Th 1:10, 5:9; Rev 3:10.

Rom 5:8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.

Rom 5:10 For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

1Th 1:10 we are to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, that is Jesus, who delivers us from the wrath to come.

1Th 3:13 so that He may establish your hearts unblamable in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all His saints.

10. The believer is told to watch, or have an attitude of anticipation for the Lord’s coming.
In 1Co 1:7 await eagerly the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ?

TitT 2:13 looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus;

11. God has always protected His people in unique fashion’s in the face of judgment.
Enoch before the flood; 2Pe 2:6-8. Lot from Sodom and Gomorrah.

12. The instructions by the apostle Paul never include any preparation or warning that the church will encounter the great Tribulation.

13. If the Church goes through the Tribulation then the Jew’s as well as the Gentiles of the Tribulation period would become part of the Church.

14. The church at Thessalonia would not be concerned of any disadvantage of the dead in Christ if those who were alive had to go through the great Tribulation, 1Th 1:4.

15. The message of the church is the message of the Gospel of grace, and peace which was se-cured at the cross by Jesus the Christ. Eph 2:8-10. The message of the great Tribula¬tion is one of God’s judgments. Rev 7:4-8, 12:17, 19:10; Matt 24:14.

16. The iniquity of the anti-Christ cannot be released until the Holy Spirit; the restrainer is removed with the Church. 2Th 2:3-7 (mystery of lawlessness).

17. The church is called to pray for those in authority 1Ti 2:2; if the church was on earth in the great Tribulation why would those who come through the great Tribulation pray for the de-struction of those in authority? Rev 6:10.

18. Christ’s return for His church is unconditional, and He returns to heaven, John 14:1-3.
The great tribulation is conditional, and based upon the abomination of desolation. Matt 24:15-16.

19. Christ returns for His bride in the air and does not touch down upon the earth at the Rapture.
John 14:1-3; at the second coming he comes down to the earth.

20. The bema seat judgment takes place after the Rapture.
This represents the divine production in the Spirit or in the flesh. 1Co 3:12-15.

21. Time is needed for the bema seat, and the marriage of the Lamb, and His pure bride dressed in white, the church.

22. The Rapture is a mystery and secret; the second coming is a world display of power. 1Co 15:51-52.

23. The Rapture comes at a time of false peace and safety.

24. After the Rapture (Rev 4) the day of the Lord begins with the opening of the first seal, Rev 5.

25. The Church is never mentioned from Rev 4-19.

26. The 144,00 Jews from Twelve Tribes; the two prophet’s probably Elijah and Moses and the angel witness the gospel, Rev 11:3.

The hope of the Church is the return of Christ at the Rapture, who will deliver them from the greatest outpouring of judgment in the history of the universe, Tit 2:11, 13; 1Th 1:10, 4:18, 5:11.
