THE POST-TRIBULATION RAPTURE
. . . . . . . and HITLER; (a Parody).
In short, are we doing our homework?
No. We are not.
In China the Pre-Trib Rapture doctrine, (brought in by American missionaries), has departed from the scene. It is now as dead as the Dodo bird. It cannot be found. It was tried over there in the crucible of history. And it was found wanting. Pre-Trib Rapturism ended up being totally discredited in China. And so it shall in America and the West. This will surely happen in times to come, on a day of shouting and of blowing of trumpets.
The Pre-Tribulation Rapture doctrine has disappeared from China. This happened in 1949 with the coming of the Cultural Revolution and under the Red Guard of Mao Tse Tung. See what Corrie Ten Boom has to say about this. Similarly, in Indonesia) where Christians are fully committed to Christ, the Biblical truth of a Post-Tribulation or post Day of Atonement glorification of the saints is respected. The calling to witness under trial is not "negative" to these present day heroes of the faith. Nor do they say, "I sit as a queen, and will see no sorrow". Witness under persecution in a Muslim country is a present day reality for these people. Over there, spiritual warfare is embraced cheerfully with faith, hope, and a burning love for their Messiah.
But what about us, the Western Laodicean Church, the congregation that is camped toward the fleshpots of Sodom and end-time Babylon? Sadly Biblical truth is pushed aside. Our "Post-Modern" or "Emerging Church" leaders, hard pressed to keep up numbers and "keep the religious customer satisfied" studiously neglects end-time Bible prophecy. At best they consider it as "not relevant". At worst they regard it as "negative stuff". One prominent "purpose driven" pastor has said that eschatology and matters of Bible prophecy and the return of Jesus Christ is 'none of our business'.
But our Western Christian and Messianic family are indeed important. In God's scheme of things we are far more important than we have been told. Western Christians are probably going to turn out to be "the people to whom the ends of the earth have come". -1Cor. 10:11.
So, all that being understood, we do need good information after all. Especially if we are to take our places up ahead on the stage at the climax of the holy history or this age. And yet, even at this late hour, we are still not taking the important doctrines of the faith seriously. Nor are we heeding the Apostle Paul's exhortation to "Study to show thyself approved unto God". - 2Tim. 2:15
One might ask,
Does the uncommitted lackadaisical Western Church deserve the truth?
Considering what Jesus said in Matthew 13:11 this is a really good question, isn't it?
Hopefully, for those who read this, the answer is a resounding "yes!!!"
So what to do for this Sleeping Beauty?
Perhaps a parody, a spoof, might help to wake her up?

If that doesn't wake us up then what next?
Is it possible that God will awaken His covenant people with the Teruah?
Like, . . . on Yom Teruah, the Feast of Trumpets?
The very next feast to come into its New Covenant fulfillment;
On the first day of the final 7 years of this age?
