As we saw in part one of this series, contrary to my own
understanding, Pre-Tribulation Rapture theorists believe
that the Great Tribulation will commence at the beginning of
the Last Seven Years. In addition to this, they believe that
the Rapture will occur just prior to this seven-year period.
There are a variety of reasons and Scriptures they use to
support this view. One of the most common verses which I
have heard used to support this belief is the following:

"For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain
salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ," (1 Thessalonians 5:9)

In the previous verse, the word 'wrath' is derived from the
Greek word 'orge', and is variably interpreted in the Bible
as wrath, anger, vengeance or indignation. Depending upon
personal interpretation, 'wrath' can be applied to the wrath
of the Beast against the Lord's Saints, or to the Last Seven
Plagues, also known as the Vials of Wrath, which God shall
pour upon the wicked, or to the final reward of the wicked
in the Lake of Fire. Let us now closely examine each one of
these possibilities in order to discover which one is most
successful in passing the Scriptural test. In the first
case, we know that it doesn't pass the test, because as we
saw in part two of this series, the Saints are going to be
subjected to the wrath of the Beast. As I point out in such
articles as 'The Children Of God And Politics', and in the
series 'The Fruits Of Disobedience', throughout the entire
Old Testament, the Lord protected His children when they
remained obedient to His will, and He punished them through
their enemies when they went astray.

During the coming Great Tribulation, the Lord is apparently
going to lift His protection, and allow the Beast and his
forces to persecute the Saints. This will serve a variety of
purposes; one of which will be to allow the wicked to fill
up their cup of iniquity, so that the Lord can righteously
judge them. It is my understanding that while the Beast is
persecuting the Lord's children, God will also be pouring
out His Wrath upon the Beast's kingdom of darkness. Consider
the following very revelatory verses found in Psalm Eleven:

"...In the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee
as a bird to your mountain? For, lo, the wicked bend their
bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they
may privily shoot at the upright in heart...The LORD trieth
the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence
his soul hateth. Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire
and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the
portion of their cup." (Psalms 11:1-2, 5-6)

These verses are so amazing that it absolutely thrills me!
The Lord is so faithful to reveal new gems to me as I delve
into the wonders of His Word! Notice first of all that these
verses clearly refer to preparation for a war. David says
'the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon
the string'. What war is King David talking about? Notice
also that only a few verses later, we are also told that
when they enter the battle, the Lord will also pour out His
righteous judgments upon them. How are His chastisements
described? David says 'this shall be the portion of their
cup'. What cup is David talking about? Might it be possible
that the king is referring to the Seven Vials, or Cups, of
Wrath found in the Book of Revelation? As I explain in the
upcoming article 'The Seven Trumpets And The Seven Last
Plagues', it appears that the Trumpets and the Vials, also
known as the Seven Last Plagues, are different names for the
very same things. This becomes apparent when we put the
following verses right after each other:

"And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the
four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying
to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four
angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the
four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour,
and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third
part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were
two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of
them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that
sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth,
and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads
of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and
brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed,
by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which
issued out of their mouths. For their power is in their
mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto
serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt."
(Revelation 9:13-19)

"And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great
river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that
the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. And I
saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth
of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of
the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of
devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of
the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the
battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as
a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his
garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he
gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew
tongue Armageddon." (Revelation 16:12-16)

Now remember, in Psalm Eleven, King David described the
wicked drawing back the bow and preparing for battle. In the
previous two sets of verses, we have the sixth angel with
his Trumpet, and the other sixth angel with his Vial of
Wrath. You will immediately notice that both of them are by
the Euphrates River; and as I point out in the series 'The
Seven Heads', I suspect that this may be a reference to the
area of the Euphrates River which comes down from Turkey and
passes through Syria, and not to its length through the
country of Iraq, although that is also a possibility. Notice
also that we are told in the first set of verses that these
angels 'were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month,
and a year'. Likewise, in the second set of verses, we are
told that the Euphrates River is dried up so 'that the way
of the kings of the east might be prepared'. It should be
clear then that all of these verses are talking about the
preparation for the Battle of Armageddon, which King David
apparently envisioned thousands of years ago.

Allow me to bring a few more important points to your
attention. As I also state in 'The Seven Heads' series, this
mention of 'the kings of the east' could be a reference to
military forces coming from Iraq, Iran, and further points
east as they cross the dried-up Euphrates River on their way
to the hill of Megiddo, or Armageddon, in Israel; however,
during the course of doing research for the aforementioned
series, I discovered that the word translated here as 'east'
is actually derived from the Greek word 'anatolia'. This
just so happens to be the former name of a country currently
known as Turkey! So again, these military forces may in fact
originate in Turkey, and/or Syria, and not in Iraq and Iran.

Finally, notice that in Psalm Eleven, in describing God's
wrath upon those who have prepared for battle, King David
states 'he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an
horrible tempest'. The Apostle John uses similar words when
he says 'and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and
brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed,
by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which
issued out of their mouths'. It doesn't take very much
imagination too see that what John is describing might be
modern day warfare in which tanks are used, and other toys
of destruction. It seems like the Lord will be fighting
fire with fire as the righteous battle against the wicked
Muslim hordes.

But let's backtrack in time for a moment, to before the
Battle of Armageddon actually occurs. Let's return to a
point in time when Jerusalem is first surrounded by hostile
Muslim forces; a time which may be in the very near future;
perhaps only a few months or a few years from now at best.
When this time of persecution known as Jacob's Trouble is
about to begin, did Jesus say that the Rapture will occur in
order to spare His children from such agony? Some of the
Pre-Tribulation Rapture theorists will insist that this is
definitely the case. One verse which they sometimes use in
order to support this view is the following, which I also
shared in part one of this series:

"And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince
which standeth for the children of thy people: and there
shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there
was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy
people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found
written in the book." (Daniel 12:1)

Notice that Daniel writes 'at that time thy people shall be
delivered'. Of course, for we Christians, this Deliverance
can only be referring to the Second Coming of Christ and the
Rapture. That is the only way that any of us are going to be
delivered from this world, assuming of course that we all
are still alive at that time. As we have already seen, the
problem is in our personal understanding of exactly what is
meant by 'that time'. Notice also that this verse does not
say that all of the Jews of Israel are God's Chosen People
as some wayward Bible teachers would have you to believe. I
delve into this topic quite deeply in the article 'Is God A
Racist?'. As far as I know, the only Jews who are going to
be delivered 'at that time', are those who are found written
in the Book of Life; and the only ones who will be found in
the Book of Life, are those who have accepted the Bread of
Life, Jesus Christ Himself; because as He said:

"...I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh
unto the Father, but by me." (John 14:6)

"All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him
that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out."
(John 6:37)

"And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never
perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand."
(John 10:28)

These are the only flesh Jews who will be delivered at that
time; that is, those who have come to the Father through the
Lord Jesus Christ. So the point is, did Jesus say that God
will take His loved ones out of this world so that they can
be spared from the awesome destruction which will be wrought
against the city of Jerusalem? Not by any means. Let me
again remind you of precisely what Jesus did say regarding
this issue:

"And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then
know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them
which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them
which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them
that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these be the
days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be
fulfilled. But woe unto them that are with child, and to
them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great
distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. And they
shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away
captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden
down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be
fulfilled." (Luke 21:20-24)

Notice again that Jesus says 'flee to the mountains'. If you
go back and read those verses from Psalm Eleven, you will
see that King David also started his song by saying 'Flee as
a bird to your mountain'; which he actually did in real life
when he was forced to flee from rebellious King Saul, and
hid in the cave of Adullam. Initially, David chose to flee
to the camp of Saul's enemies, that is, to King Achish of
Gath, the home of Goliath whom David had already slain by
this time; but the Philistine king didn't trust David, so
David then fled to the cave of Adullam:

"And David arose, and fled that day for fear of Saul, and
went to Achish the king of Gath. And the servants of Achish
said unto him, Is not this David the king of the land? did
they not sing one to another of him in dances, saying, Saul
hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands? And
David laid up these words in his heart, and was sore afraid
of Achish the king of Gath. And he changed his behaviour
before them, and feigned himself mad in their hands, and
scrabbled on the doors of the gate, and let his spittle fall
down upon his beard. Then said Achish unto his servants, Lo,
ye see the man is mad: wherefore then have ye brought him to
me? Have I need of mad men, that ye have brought this fellow
to play the mad man in my presence? shall this fellow come
into my house? David therefore departed thence, and escaped
to the cave Adullam: and when his brethren and all his
father's house heard it, they went down thither to him."
(1 Samuel 21:10-22:1)

As we saw in part two, the Lord's words are a direct warning
to the Jews who will be living in the city of Jerusalem in
the near future when all of these events begin to occur. If
the Rapture occurs before this terrible time of suffering
begins, why then does our Lord tell the Jews to flee as
quickly as they can with just the clothes on their backs?
For me personally, the answer is quite obvious. The Rapture
simply does not occur at this time; it happens later. Those
Jews who are wise, and who truly understand the Word of the
Lord, will do exactly as Jesus tells them to do; they will
flee as a bird to the mountains in order to escape the Wrath
of an angry God who will severely punish the rest of their
countrymen who have not accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord
and Saviour; and the Jewish unbelievers will clearly be in
the majority. It will be a very great slaughter; not only of
the unbelieving Jews, but also of the many Palestinians who
now reside in Jordan, and of the other Arab forces. Consider
these descriptive verses written by the Prophet Isaiah which
appear to have Endtime implications:

"And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every
high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the
great slaughter, when the towers fall. Moreover the light of
the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of
the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in
the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people,
and healeth the stroke of their wound. Behold, the name of
the LORD cometh from far, burning with his anger, and the
burden thereof is heavy: his lips are full of indignation,
and his tongue as a devouring fire: And his breath, as an
overflowing stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to
sift the nations with the sieve of vanity: and there shall
be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.
Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity
is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a
pipe to come into the mountain of the LORD, to the mighty
One of Israel. And the LORD shall cause his glorious voice
to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his arm,
with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a
devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and
hailstones. For through the voice of the LORD shall the
Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod."
(Isaiah 30:25-31)

"Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let
the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all
things that come forth of it. For the indignation of the
LORD is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their
armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered
them to the slaughter. Their slain also shall be cast out,
and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the
mountains shall be melted with their blood. And all the host
of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be
rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall
down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a
falling fig from the fig tree. For my sword shall be bathed
in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon
the people of my curse, to judgment. The sword of the LORD
is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, and with
the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of
rams: for the LORD hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great
slaughter in the land of Idumea." (Isaiah 34:1-6)

Just as the Prophet Jeremiah warned the children of Israel
to return to the Lord so long ago, just prior to the final
Babylonian invasion, because they will not accept Eternal
Life through the Son of God, the Lord Himself will once
again chastise the Jews by the hand of their Muslim enemies,
who will bring them suffering and death. It will simply be a
repetition of history upon a rebellious people who have
still not learned their lesson:

"And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith the LORD;
Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of
death. He that abideth in this city shall die by the sword,
and by the famine, and by the pestilence: but he that goeth
out, and falleth to the Chaldeans that besiege you, he shall
live, and his life shall be unto him for a prey. For I have
set my face against this city for evil, and not for good,
saith the LORD: it shall be given into the hand of the king
of Babylon, and he shall burn it with fire."
(Jeremiah 21:8-10)

The main point I wish to stress is that not being appointed
to wrath has nothing to do with escaping the wrath of the
Beast. All of the verses I shared in part two emphasize the
fact that some of the Lord's children will still be here
during the Great Tribulation; and that one of the primary
purposes of this persecution will be to purge and to purify
the Saints; that is, to make us truly worthy of the glories
to be revealed. As the Apostle Paul wrote in his Epistle to
the Corinthians:

"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard,
neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which
God hath prepared for them that love him."
(1 Corinthians 2:9)

While it is quite possible that one hundred and forty-four
thousand Jewish Christians will be sealed during the Great
Tribulation, the fact remains that this number represents
under two and a half per cent of Israel's current Jewish
population of about six million; so many people are still
going to suffer and die during the reign of the Beast;
particularly in the state of Israel. In fact, at this time,
I am not convinced that being marked with the seal of God
necessarily means that the Lord's children will fully escape
the wrath of the Beast. Even in our current day, we read of
Christian missionaries, and our native Christian brethren in
foreign lands, such as Egypt and the Sudan, being persecuted
and killed because of their faith in Jesus Christ; so as I
pointed out in part two, while receiving the seal of God may
offer protection to some of the Saints, it primarily serves
as a mark of ownership, whether we live or die in the Lord.
If the seal of God offers full protection from persecution
and death, then we would not find the following verses in
the sixth chapter of the Book of Revelation, right after the
description of the woman in the wilderness:

"And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the
altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God,
and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a
loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost
thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on
the earth? "And white robes were given unto every one of
them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet
for a little season, until their fellowservants also and
their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should
be fulfilled." (Revelation 6:9-11)

Thus, it seems that as a possible final test of their love
for the Lord and lost souls, some of those who are alive at
the time of the Great Tribulation, will be called to lay
down their lives. Whether or not we American Christians will
be the object of the Beast's persecution depends upon the
extent of his power and influence. I cannot answer that at
this time as I honestly do not know. Again, it depends upon
the proper interpretation of such phrases as 'all nations',
'all the world' and 'all'. Perhaps the Beast will indeed
have power over the entire Earth as some people envision the
New World Order, or One World Government as it is also
called, or maybe it will be a more localized event limited
to the Middle East. As we saw in part two, one thing of
which we can be sure, is that Jesus Himself said, 'The
servant is not greater than his Lord'. Please consider the
following verses as well:

"And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let
him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow
me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but
whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall
save it." (Luke 9:23-24)

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his
life for his friends." (John 15:13)

"For the love of Christ constraineth us..."
(2 Corinthians 5:14a)

"Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We
ought to obey God rather than men." (Acts 5:29)

So again, perhaps some of the Lord's children, whether they
be Gentile Christians, or Jewish Christians, will be so
motivated by the love of God in the days and years ahead,
that despite heavy persecution, ridicule and the threat of
punishment or death, they will be willing to lay down their
lives in order to continue preaching the Gospel and winning
others to Christ. Let us hope and pray that none of us will
cower in fear like Peter and The Eleven who fled from the
Lord the night of His betrayal, and then hid themselves in
the upper room for fear of the Jewish Elders:

"Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the
week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were
assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the
midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you."
(John 20:19)

Whatever happens in the future, one fact remains; Jesus and
His First Disciples did not escape persecution and death; so
what makes some Endtime Christians think that they are any
better? Could it be that modern organized religion has
become such a religion of convenience and comfort, that many
have adopted the erroneous attitude that any possibility of
pain and suffering should be rejected as being unscriptural?
What makes them think that they are so worthy to comfortably
float off to Heaven to sit on some billowy cloud and play a
harp for Eternity? Sad to say, this is the erroneous image
of Heaven that some deluded Christians seem to have. In the
Old Testament and the New, our brethren had to pay a price
for their beliefs. Some of us will undoubtedly have to pay
the price for ours as well, as some already have. Jesus paid
the price for our Salvation, but we are the ones who must
work to obtain the rewards; for we will not all shine with
the same glory:

"There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial:
but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the
terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and
another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars:
for one star differeth from another star in glory."
(1 Corinthians 15:40-41)

This idea of being faithful unto death is also emphasized in
the following two verses; one from the book of Daniel, and
the other from the message to the Church at Smyrna in the
Book of Revelation. As I will explain in a moment, being a
faithful witness of the Lord's love and Salvation is not the
only reason for which many people will undergo persecution:

"Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the
wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall
understand; but the wise shall understand." (Daniel 12:10)

"Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold,
the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be
tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou
faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life."
(Revelation 2:10)

Notice that the reason why some of the Disciples at Smyrna
were going to be cast into prison and suffer tribulation,
was so that they might be tried; that is, so that their
faith might be tested. In order to obtain their Crown, they
had to remain firm unto death and not deny their faith in
the Lord. It is for these reasons that I strongly feel that
those who embrace the Pre-Tribulation Rapture theory are in
error. If they honestly believe that they are ready to meet
their Maker, they are really deceiving themselves. We are
all imperfect, and full of all kinds of bad habits, pride
and self-righteousness attitudes. The Lord needs to purge us
of such things before we will truly merit the full glories
of the Kingdom to come. He must get rid of the dross in our
lives so that we will be as pure gold. Please consider these
verses:

"But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me,
I shall come forth as gold." (Job 23:10)

"And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will
refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold
is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them:
I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is
my God." (Zechariah 13:9)

"My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers
temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith
worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work,
that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing."
(James 1:2-4)

"That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than
of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might
be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing
of Jesus Christ:" (1 Peter 1:7)

"Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial
which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened
unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of
Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed,
ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. If ye be reproached
for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of
glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil
spoken of, but on your part he is glorified."
(1 Peter 4:12-14)

"I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that
thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be
clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear;
and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see."
(Revelation 3:18)

In that set of verses from the Epistle of James, the word
'temptations' is derived from the Greek word 'peirasmos',
pronounced pi-ras-mos', which means a trial or proving of
one's faith. It is almost identical in meaning to the word
'trial' found in the previous verses from Peter's first
Epistle. In those verses, the word 'trial' is derived from
the Greek 'purosis', pronounced poo'-ro-sis, which my Greek
lexicon defines as follows:

----- Begin Quote -----

1) a burning
1a) the burning by which metals are roasted and reduced
1b) by a figure drawn from a refiners fire
1b1) calamities or trials that test the character

----- End Of Quote -----

Thus, similar to the Apostle Paul, both James and Peter are
basically saying that as Christians, we must endure hardness
as good soldiers of Jesus Christ; and be willing to undergo
tests of our faith through physical persecution if the Lord
so chooses; and choose He might, for as Jesus and Peter also
stated:

"Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute
you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely,
for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is
your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets
which were before you." (Matthew 5:11-12)

"Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words
in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall
the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of
his Father with the holy angels." (Mark 8:38)

"Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be
ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. For the
time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God:
and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them
that obey not the gospel of God?" (1 Peter 4:16-17)

Having now fully examined the possibility that not being
appointed to wrath might mean escaping the wrath of the
Beast and the False Prophet during the Great Tribulation
through a Pre-Tribulation Rapture, I believe we can safely
conclude that this is simply not the case. In light of the
preponderance of Scriptures that I have provided thus far,
it seems clear that the Lord's children will still be here
during the time known as Jacob's Trouble.

In part four of this series, we will continue our study by
examining the next possibility; and that is that not being
appointed to wrath might be a reference, not to the wrath of
the satanic Beast, but rather to the actual Wrath of God
Himself, also known as the Seven Vials of Wrath, or the Last
Seven Plagues. We will be taking a look into the past at a
few examples such as the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah,
the plagues in Egypt, and Noah's Flood. In addition, we will
also discuss the great multitude which John saw in the Book
of Revelation, the possibility of a Mid-Tribulation Rapture,
and what Jesus may have really meant when He said that the
days would be shortened. I trust that you are finding this
series interesting, and that you will join me in part four.
