    • Four Common Views The Pretribulation Rapture The Partial Rapture The Midtribulation Rapture The Postribulation Rapture The Pre-Wrath Rapture
    • Partial Rapture Viewed Like a continual rapture Great Tribulation Period
    • The Partial Rapture View • Only SOME will be removed. • Only those who are “worthy” are taken. • Others will be raptured throughout the Tribulation. • The Tribulation will “purify” the Christians and they are called “overcomers.”
    • What passages are used? Matt 25:1-13 Based on the parable of the ten virgins
    • What passages are used? Seen as a requirement in order to be raptured 1 Thess 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. Again, a conditional rapture view.
    • What passages are used? • 1 Thessalonians 1:10 • 2 Timothy 4:8 • 1 Corinthians 15:23 • Philippians 3:11 • Hebrews 9:28 • Luke 21:36
    • The Midtribulation Rapture Adherents to this view believe that the church will be raptured at the midpoint of the seven- year Tribulation period.
    • The Midtribulation Rapture • Another view similar to this view is know as the Pre-Wrath Rapture. • This view is only a slightly modified version of the Midtribulation Rapture view.
    • Midtribulation Rapture Viewed Taken out after 3 ½ Years of Trib. Great Tribulation Period
    • What Passages do they use? 2 Tim 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus Their thinking is that the church is shall suffer persecution. promised tribulation and must therefore, go through the first 3 ½ years of that period.
    • What Passages do they use? 1 Cor. 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. no distinction is made between Israel and the church. Corinth, a local church, was told of a coming time believe the They when all the believers would be angel andofChrist trump the “changed.” are the same .
    • The Posttribulation Rapture Its proponents believe that the church will endure Daniel’s 70th week and will be raptured at the end of the Great Tribulation. They believe that the rapture and the second coming of Christ are the same thing.
    • The Posttribulation View • Most posttribulationalists teach that events of the Tribulation are not to be taken literally or futuristically, for the church has always undergone tribulation since its inception and is in the Tribulation now.
    • The Posttribulation View • Others teach that the church will go through the Tribulation but are unclear on the sequence and literalness of the events leading up to Christ’s Coming. • They mix literal and allegorical interpretations of the Scripture.
    • The Post tribulation View Rapture at the end of the Trib. Great Tribulation Period
    • The Pretribulation Rapture • This view is widely held by Christians. • The church will be removed from the earth before the seven-year Tribulation of Daniel’s 70th week (Dan 9:24-27).
    • The Pre tribulation Viewed “To meet the Lord in the air…” Great Tribulation Period
    • What do Pretribulation Rapturists Believe? The Rapture is imminent. • It could occur at any moment. James said, “the coming of the Lord draweth near (is at hand)….behold, the judge standeth before the door” (Jas. 5:8-9).
    • What do Pretribulation Rapturists Believe? The Rapture is imminent. • Paul taught, “that we who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not precede them who are asleep” (1 Thess 4:15).
    • What do Pretribulation Rapturists Believe? The Rapture and the Second Advent are Separate Events. • The rapture is in the air to meet the Lord • The Second Coming is with Christ to come back to the earth.
    • What do Pretribulation Rapturists Believe? • A division of time must exist between the Rapture and the Second Coming. • Believers are in their prepared places (John 14: 1-3). • The Bema Seat Judgment (2 Cor. 5:10). • The Marriage Supper of the Lamb (Rev. 19:7-9).
    • What do Pretribulation Rapturists Believe? The church will NOT experience any form of God’s wrath. • Paul said, “For God hath not appointed us to wrath” (1 Thes 5:9) for Jesus has, “delivered us from the wrath to come” (1 Thes 1:10).
    • What do Pretribulation Rapturists Believe? The church will NOT experience any form of God’s wrath. • To the church, John said God would “keep thee from the hour of temptation (testing), which shall come upon all the world” (Rev 3:10).
    • What do Pretribulation Rapturists Believe? The Church and Israel are NOT identical. • The church and Israel have two separate programs. • This is indicated by Daniel 9: 24-27, a key passage giving an overview of the Tribulation.
    • The Pre tribulation Viewed The coming of the Lord COMING OF THE LORD FOR THE SAINTS COMING OF The The 1.The.4: 16 THE LORD judgment The marriage WITH THE seat of rewards of the SAINTS Christ lamb (2.The.1: 7) R E R V A E P L T A U T R I E O Living (changed) TRIBULATION PERIOD ON EARTH (70th week) N Dead in Christ rise TRIBULATION SAINTS (RAISED) rraise
