The Great Tribulation: You Want to Miss It!

 If any love not the Lord Jesus Christ they are bound under a great curse anathema when our Lord has come when our Lord has come maranatha maranatha [1]

1 Corinthians 16:22

[1] 1 Corinthians 16:22, is a reference to the pre-tribulational resurrection and rapture of those who are “in Christ.”

The Greek word, maranatha, meaning “our Lord has come,” is repeated at the end of this verse: maranatha maranatha. Two things will happen when our Lord shall come…For the Lord himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God, and 1.) the dead in Christ shall rise first (resurrection) then  2.)  we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air (rapture); and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Maranatha, Maranatha…The dead in Christ—Maranatha. And we who are alive and remain—Maranatha.

The anathema, the curse of The Great Affliction will bind those who will be left behind. The Great Tribulation is referred to in The Revelation 7:14, “These are the ones coming out of THE GREAT AFFLICTION.” The Greek is clear on this. The Great Affliction is the anathema that will follow on the heels of maranatha maranatha. The Great Affliction is synonymous with the time Jesus warned of in Matthew 24 (For then shall be great affliction such as was not since the beginning of the Kosmos to this time No nor ever shall be (again)). It is synonymous with the horrific time known as the Time of Jacob’s trouble. It is the curse contained in the flying scroll that Zechariah saw going forth.

When God's great redemption is understood, Bible prophecy is neither complicated nor mysterious

What people are saying

“I have been studying Revelation, and this work has helped me in that study.” –David (GA)

"I have been a Christian for only one year. This study was very easy to understand and has strengthened the foundation of my faith.” –Jason (NJ)

It is not long and drawn out but simple, concise, and understandable. I was impressed with the positive reinforcement that God is a redemptive God who has made Himself known through His Word, and in these last days through His Son, Jesus. I appreciated the emphasis on The Holy Spirit being able to teach. I also like that the author weaves scripture throughout the writing. –Mona (MO)

I love how this all fits together so well! It totally disproves the idea that the Catching Up and the Second Coming are one and the same. –Samantha (USA)
