A Guide to Those Who Are Left Behind
A GUIDE TO THOSE WHO ARE LEFT TO GO THROUGH THE GREAT TRIBULATION AFTER THE RAPTURE OF ALL BORN AGAIN BELIEVERS
MANY true Christians are deeply concerned about those who will be left to suffer in the “Great Tribulation” after the Lord Jesus Christ has called His own to meet Him in the air. This meeting is referred to as the Rapture.
We do not believe in a second chance, but we do believe that salvation will be offered until death. The opportunity of salvation during the tribulation is merely a continuation of the present opportunity now offered to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour. Faith in the atoning work of Christ is the only hope for a lost humanity, sold under sin, either before or after the rapture.
This message is especially for those who are left in the Great Tribulation (Matthew 24:21), and its object is to bear witness that the Scriptures teach that even yet many will be saved by giving their lives as martyrs (Rev. 7:13,14), and will escape the final doom of the Eternal Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:15).
TO THOSE WHO ARE LEFT
THE GREAT EVENT foretold in the Holy Scriptures (The Bible) and which is believed and taught by the evangelical and true blood-bought body of Christ concerning “the rapture of the Church of the Living God” from this earth to glory HAS TAKEN PLACE. Both the living believers and the dead in Christ (who have been raised from the dead) have been caught up to meet the Lord in the air, in accordance with the following Scriptures: “For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” I Thessalonians 4:15-17
Now that the True Church (all believers and followers of the Lord Jesus Christ) has been taken from the earth, the powers of Satan will have full sway and a terrible, indescribable tribulation will take place during which the inhabitants of the earth (Jew and Gentile) will suffer much.
To live for Christ now, under the reign of the Anti-Christ and confess Him as your Lord and Saviour that you might escape the eternal damnation of hell will cost you your very life. But Salvation is still promised to those who endure to the very end. (Matthew 24:13).
Those who are saved out of the great tribulation are described in Revelations 7:14 as having “washed their robes, and made them white in the Blood of the Lamb.” Your robes are stained with UNBELIEF, WORLDLINESS, PLEASURE-SEEKING, and OTHER SINS. Separate yourself unto God absolutely, and seek cleansing by repenting of your sin and believing in the Blood of Christ which was shed on Calvary for the remission of sin. (John 3:16).
“For whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
Study your Bible earnestly while you have it, and memorize as much as possible before it is taken from you.
The Anti-Christ will be the Great World Dictator, and compel men to bear his Mark, and to worship him and his image.
REFUSE the MARK, and REFUSE TO WORSHIP THE ANTI-CHRIST or his image at any cost. (Rev. 13:15-17). It is far better to suffer for a little while now, and soon to be with Christ, than to escape suffering by yielding to the Beast and suffer the torments of Hell forever. (Rev. 14:9-12).
Be of good courage. Hold fast to the Word of God. Be kind to the Jew. “He that shall ENDURE unto the end, the same shall be saved” Matthew 24:13
This article is written as though the Rapture had taken place and the Lord had called His own out of this world. Perhaps even now as you are reading this message, the Rapture is history, and you are left. Look to Him, Jesus Christ, for strength and the courage to suffer for Him, for He suffered for you even unto death. The Bible bears testimony that during this period you can neither buy nor sell, without the mark of the Beast, and this will bring great suffering and certain death to those who refuse the Mark...
...AND HE THAT RECEIVES THE MARK IS ETERNALLY DAMNED, AND THE WRATH OF THE LIVING GOD ABIDES ON HIM.
“If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus (as Saviour), and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Romans 10:9
Whether the RAPTURE has taken place or is still in the future when you read this message,
REPENT OF YOUR SIN AND ACCEPT CHRIST JESUS NOW as your personal Saviour, by believing that He died and shed His blood for you. Surrender wholly to Him. Diligently watch and pray, and witness for Him until He comes. (Luke 21:34-36). Read John 3:16 and 3:36, and Acts 17:30.
GOD’S ONE WAY TO SAVE SINNERS
“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; which He shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour.” Titus 3:5,6 No other way — John 14:6 No other foundation — I Corinthians 3:11 No other name — Acts 4:12 No other entrance — John 10:1 No other atonement — Hebrews 9:12, 28 No other saving power — Romans 1:16; John 6:44. No other Gospel to be preached — Gal. 1:8,9. “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.” Acts 16:31
