INTRODUCTION

The devil has two modes of attack against the church of God: as a serpent, he is a deceiver, and as a dragon, he is a persecutor. His first method is almost invariably deception, because if he can deceive a man into teaching lies, he can get him condemned:

(Jeremiah 48:10) "Cursed is he who does the work of the LORD deceitfully,"
(James 3:1) "My brothers, do not be many teachers, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation."
(Revelation 21:8) "and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."

Not only this, but the devil can also condemn all those who follow false teaching, because they are led into error:

(Isaiah 9:16) "For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and those who are led by them are destroyed."
(Matthew 15:14) "And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch."

Concerning the second coming of Jesus and the post-tribulation rapture, the devil has been very subtle, and deceived many into believing one of two very serious error: the pre-tribulation rapture or the mid-tribulation rapture. Jesus once told a parable about ten virgins who waited for the bridegroom to come (Matthew 25:1-13). Five were wise and were prepared for his coming, but five were foolish and did not have enough oil in their lamps (v8). When the bridegroom came, the wise went in with him to the marriage, but the foolish were shut out (v10). This is a parable about Jesus’ second coming, warning us to be prepared, and if the devil can ensure that we are not prepared, then he can get us shut out when Jesus comes, just like the foolish virgins. In order to do this, he has deceived people into believing in a pre-tribulation rapture of the church. Many believe that they will not have to go through any tribulation, and so have not prepared themselves for it, and like the foolish virgins, they will not have time to prepare if they realize their mistake too late. Even in this parable, the bridegroom did not collect some virgins one time and then others at a later date, they were either taken in at his only coming, or they were shut out. With this one deception the devil will get many of those who believe it rejected when Jesus comes, and I urge anyone who believes in a pre-tribulation rapture to prayerfully meditate on this study, and allow God to show you the truth of it. This study has one main aim, to prove from the scripture that the rapture will not come before the tribulation, but will occur on the last day of this pre-millennial age, when Jesus returns for his church, and destroys the Beast and his army who fight against Jerusalem (Zechariah 14:12; Revelation 19:19-21).
This bible study gives you plenty of scriptural proof for the post-tribulation rapture of the church.
In view of these facts, I invite anyone who reads this study, who would like to contribute any constructive comments, either to enhance, or to correct, or to contribute in any way that will help others, and bring this study closer to the complete truth, to contact me.
