And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you. 5 And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ. 2Thessalonians 3:4-5
As followers of Christ we all are (or should be) looking forward to the day of his Return to this planet. But did you know that, concerning our beliefs about the end-times and the coming of Jesus, there are certain instructions given us that we are commanded to adhere to? And that to disregard those instructions, and to follow instead the contrary notions taught by man, is actually direct disobedience to God?
This is not a trivial matter!
Let me ask you a few questions: How important is it to obey the commands of our Creator? And, more pertinently, how important is compliance to those commands to you personally?
As Bible believing Christians who could deny that the Scriptures express a firm exhortation that we are to not only obey the words of Christ but also those of his Apostles. That the inspired words the Apostles spoke and wrote, right along with the teachings of Jesus, are to be considered the commandments of God and obeyed! We all believe that, right?
But have you ever considered how this might apply to what is currently being preached and taught concerning what we are to believe about the end-times and the Return of Jesus? I have!
And I can absolutely prove from the Scriptures that believing in and teaching a secret invisible coming of Christ for the Church seven years prior to the Second Coming (the pre-trib rapture doctrine) is not only bogus, but is also flat out disobedience to many of God’s commands given through Christ and his Apostles about what we are to believe!
Are you in a ‘pre-trib rebellion’ against God’s Word?
Please allow me to recap and consolidate some of the points I have made over the years which show the way the pre-trib teaching flat-out ignores and contradicts many firmly stated exhortations given us to follow in our efforts to piece together the puzzle of the end-time prophecies.
