Three mainstream rapture views

Post by Sonshine on Sun May 24, 2009 1:08 am

A. Pre-Tribulational Rapturism
This is by far, the most common viewpoint in America today. It's roots can be traced back to the Plymouth Brethren in 1830, although it did not really become prevalent in America until the early 1900's. Pre-trib teaches this:
The final 7 year period of the world is called the tribulation.
The last 3.5 years are called the Great Tribulation.
The entire 7 year period is considered the wrath of God or the Day of the Lord.
Since the church is not destined for God's wrath, then the church is raptured prior to the 7 year period.
The rapture is considered to be an "any moment" event.

B. Mid-Tribulation Rapturism
This view is even more recent than pre-trib, becoming popular in 1941. This view believes:
The final 7 year period of the world is called the tribulation.
The last 3.5 years are called the Great Tribulation.
The last 3.5 years are considered the wrath of God or the Day of the Lord.
Since the church is not destined for God's wrath, then the church is raptured at the mid-way point.

C. Post-Tribulation Rapturism
Post-trib was by far the most popular opinion during the time of the reformation, but cannot be traced to a specific starting point. There are alot of variations on this view but in its classic sense post-tribbers believe:
The church must endure the entire 7 year period, to be raptured at the end of the tribulation.
God will protect his children through His wrath.
I've tried to explain these views as simply as I could. While there are variations of each of these views, as a whole this is basically what each believes. Each of these uses scripture to support and build its case, but each has its particular problems.

I'll stop here for now to give everyone a chance to either agree or disagree with the views that are posted.

O.K. I'll step forward first. I'm most definitely a pre-trib believer. Ido how ever disagree with one of the things your definition says. the entire 7 yrs. is considered the wrath of God "BUT" The Day of the Lord is Armageddon. Once again this is my view.

Alot of people refer to it as the Battle of Armageddon but the Bible says the Great day of our Lord. The armies of the world are gathered together for the final showdown if you will....The Lion of the tribe of Juda arrives on the scene with his army of Raptured Saints that left back in ch.4 of Rev. This brings the end of the age and ushers in the begining of the 1000 yr. reign.
