Exposé – Why do TPTB incl. Google debunk the Pre-Trib Rapture?

Some even claim that the ‘Rapture’ cannot be found in the Bible. How then about the word ‘Bible’? Can you find that in your Bible?
However, the Latin Bible translation does use the word ‘Rapturo’. Always good to know, right?

In addition, little children mostly don’t lie  [please use the translation button if needed]:

Does the Rapture of the Church take place before the Great Tribulation?

Does 2 Thessalonians 2 point to ’the departure’ or ’the falling away’, to the Rapture, or apostasy?

Some proof
Believe me, you quickly get used to this old English in the Tyndale Bible:

2 Thessalonians 2, verse 3 (page 452) Departing First in most old English Bibles before the KJV came!

‘Departynge Fyrst’ (the Tyndale Bible by William Tyndale who was murdered)

>>> 2 Thessalonians 2, verse 3 (on page 452): Departing First, translated in most old English Bibles before the KJV Bible came, and the so-called ‘KJV Only movement’ started.

Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy [the departing] comes first, and the man of lawlessness, the son of destruction, shall have been revealed….  2 Thessalonians 2:3

>>> Note that the Greek uses ‘the’, not ‘a’, which is a more pure translation in my opinion.

King James Onlyism insists that the only way to ‘protect’ Christianity ‘from collapsing into rampant subjectivism is to remain singularly faithful to the King James Bible translation’. We now know that’s a cunning lie in order to confuse and divide us Christians!
Sometimes, I compared the King James translation with the original Greek translation, – Derek Prince did it as well – and I (and he) found out that some words were deceiving, and some words were missing, and some words were weakened, and some words had been changed. Why?
However, keep reading the KJV if you have no other Bible in your possession. Just keep this in mind.


Attacks on the Pre-Tribulation Rapture. Why?

When the Rapture takes place the Church of Jesus Christ is removed from this Earth and is never again at the reach of Lucifer/satan!
The devil will lose his ability to touch us ever again; he hates the Rapture, and many people in the ‘church world’ hate the Rapture! Why? Because it’s the hope of the believer. It’s our hope; it’s what we’re looking forward to. It takes us out of here before the wrath of God begins. It takes us out of here before the seven-year tribulation begins. It takes us out of here before the antichrist appears. So there are many reasons why the devil hates the Rapture and is going to do everything he can to deceive and discourage and destroy us. Therefore, many Christians will stay behind, the ‘tribulation saints’.

A silly attack on the Pre-Trib Rapture that has been bouncing around since 1973 is the idea that the concept came from a 15-year-old demon-possessed Scottish girl, who began to have visions in the 1830s about the return of the Lord. Remember, however, the devil, a liar, is able to give ‘his’ people dreams and visions, too.

A frequent attack that is based on misrepresentation is one that claims that those who believe in a Pre-Trib Rapture are ‘escapists’, who have no interest in the world’s problems. Nothing could be further from the truth. And the so-called ‘christian’ website Christian Today (=33(0), 555) says that these Christians are ‘zombie Christians that are merely waiting for heaven….’ Well, you shall know them by their fruits.

Most of these critics, of which many are Freemasons, try to characterize the Pre-Trib doctrine as something satanic in nature, that is designed to destroy people’s faith once the Tribulation begins and ‘there is no Rapture’. I think the exact opposite is true. I believe satan hates the Pre-Trib Rapture with a passion, because it gives Christians great hope…. indeed, our ‘Blessed Hope’!

….. while we wait for the blessed hope — the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ….  Titus 2:13

Christians, be on the alert, repent!
Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. If therefore you shall not watch, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come upon you.  Revelation 3:3

>>> Part of Revelation 3, the message to the Church in Philadelphia, is about: ‘false’ Jews, about being steadfast in expecting the Coming of our Lord Jesus, about being removed from the earth during the Rapture, about the 7 years of Tribulation, when satan will tempt many and lure them into the beast system:

Behold, I (Jesus) will make those of the synagogue of satan – those declaring themselves to be Jews, and are not, but they lie – behold, I will cause them that they will come and will worship before thy feet, and they shall know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of My patient endurance [patient waiting for the Coming of Jesus in the Rapture], I also will keep thee OUT OF* [out from and to another place, like in the Rapture] the hour [a certain definite time or season] of THE trial [calamity, temptation, 7-year tribulation], which shall come upon the whole inhabited world [earth], to try [to solicit to sin, to tempt] those dwelling upon the earth. I am coming quickly [does not mean “immediately” or necessarily “in a very short time” but rather “without any delay”]. Hold fast [keep carefully and faithfully] to what thou hast, that no one may take thy crown [as a prize to victors]. The one overcoming [being victorious], I will make him a pillar [of support, a rock] in the temple of My God [God’s dwelling place, God’s sanctuary], and he shall not go out anymore….

Always read it in its whole context, so that you get the true meaning of the living Word of God. God’s Word is meant to be living/alive for those who love and obey His voice, who are His.

*out from and to… It is one of the most under-translated (and therefore mis-translated) Greek propositions – often being confined to the meaning by (or from). Many Bible versions have translated it as FROM which means something different:
Keep from vs Keep out of (I think this is important to know)

to not enter (a place) >>> so KEEP OUT OF means that we are no longer in this place, this earth, after the Rapture!

So, KEEP FROM would only mean that we wouldn’t experience the time of trouble during the 7 years of Tribulation and that we would still be here on earth, you see? Derek Prince explained this important difference once if I remember well.

And what is a ‘pillar’ here?
like in: ‘The Lord Jesus Christ has been my pillar throughout this crisis’. Mocking God and Christian believers, satan loves to use the symbol of pillars as a real copycat!

‘Behold, I tell you a mystery’
Jesus never fully explained the Rapture to His disciples before His crucifixion, although He hinted at it a few times (Matthew 24:36-44; Luke 17:26-36; John 14:1-4). The Rapture was a mystery until God revealed it to Paul many years after Jesus’ death.

The Harpazó is an encouragement, not an admonition!
The details of the Rapture regarding the resurrection and transformation of all dead and living believers in Jesus Christ were first given by Paul to the Church in Thessalonica in about A.D. 51:

15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught away [ἁρπαγησόμεθα] together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.  1 Thessalonians 4:15-18

Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed — in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye at the last trumpet: for the trumpet shall blow, and the dead shall be raised up incorruptible, and we shall be changed [transformed].  1 Corinthians 15:51-52

None of the prophets or authors of the Old Testament knew about the Rapture
It was hidden from them because they have no part in this resurrection. They will only be resurrected when Jesus returns to the earth after the 7-year Tribulation, and establishes His Millennium Kingdom. However, I believe the Rapture is hidden in various prophecies and scripture in the Old Testament.


Old Testament Scripture that could very well point to the Rapture

For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His Tabernacle: in the secret place of His Pavilion shall He hide me, and set me high upon a rock.  Psalm 27:5

>>> Why does the KJV, among others, omit the important word ‘place’?

Gather yourselves, even gather you, O nation not worthy to be loved, before the decree come forth, and ye be as chaff that passes in a day, and before the fierce wrath of the Lord come upon you, and before the day of the Lord’s anger come upon you. Seek ye the Lord all the meek of the earth, which have wrought His judgment: seek righteousness, seek lowliness. It may be ye will be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.  Zephaniah 2:1-3

>>> Not ‘hid’, as the KJV would have us believe, as if it were an action of ourselves rather than the significant action of God Himself!

Thy dead men shall live: even with my body shall they rise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. Come, my people: enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors after thee: hide thyself for a very little while, until the indignation pass over. For lo, the Lord cometh out of his place, to visit the iniquity of the inhabitants of the earth upon them: and the earth shall disclose her blood, and shall no more hide her slain.  Isaiah 26:19-21

You may also remember that it was Micah who foretold the birthplace of Bethlehem and the purpose of Jesus Christ, found in Micah 5:2. But, Micah also looks far into the future to the Tribulation period, when Israel cries, “Woe is me!” In chapter 7, verse 2a, he writes what appears to be an event just prior to the day of the Lord, involving a ‘disappearance’ that is easily overlooked:

The godly person has perished [disappeared] from the land, and there is no upright person among men. All of them lie in wait for bloodshed; each of them hunts the other with a net.  Micah 7:2

In the future, the faithful, the holy people have perished from or out of the earth, and there is no one upright among the people; all ambush, or set treason, for blood; everyone hunts his brother, or his kinsman, unto the death.

The word ‘perished’ is a root translation of the Hebrew word ‘ovad’, which means ‘to cause to disappear’. There are 15 Hebrew words that are used to translate perish in the Bible and most of them are bloody. However, the word ‘ovad’ simply means ‘to disappear’.

It is very interesting to note that Isaiah uses the same word ‘ovad’ in this passage:
The righteous man perishes [disappears], and no man takes it to heart; and devout men are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.  Isaiah 57:1
https://www.biblegateway.com/verse/en/Isaiah%2057:1  And so on.

Tyndale explains it further: ‘God takes away the good, that he should not see the horrible plagues to come of the wicked idolaters and their vain confidence’.

What makes this all the more notable is the Hebrew word for ‘taken away’ is ‘asaph’, which means to ‘hide in a place of safety’ and is a common agricultural phrase describing storage of crops at final harvest.
Is it all just coincidence?


More New Testament Scripture referring to the Rapture

Hebrews 9:28  Is the word salvation a rescue from the Tribulation in the Rapture? Let’s see what the original Greek tells us…

… so Christ, having been offered once and once for all to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin, but to bring salvation to those who are eagerly and confidently waiting for Him.  Hebrews 9:28

Salvation in Greek is: σωτηρίαν

>>> Cognate: 4991 sōtēría (from 4982 /sṓzō, “to save, rescue”) – salvation, i.e. God’s rescue which delivers believers out of destruction and into His safety.

Behold what love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God, and we are! Because of this, the world knows us not, because it knew Him not. Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not yet been revealed what we will be. We know that when He appears [in the Rapture], we will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is. And everyone having this hope in Him, purifies himself, just as He is pure.  1 John 3:1-3

>>> Please know that the devil doesn’t want God’s Bride to purify herself by making them believe that their Lord will come after about 3,5 years or 7 years, counting from the start of the Tribulation! Without purification, repentance, eagerly awaiting the Lord, etc., we won’t see Him, we won’t be raptured but left behind! Then satan can continue to deceive you!

Repentance not needed?
Most false teachers, false prophets, false christians won’t call you to repentance, nor tell you that you need to walk in a pure manner in order to be able to see the Lord in the Rapture! In that way, they suggest that every Christian will be raptured out of this world before the start of the 7 year Tribulation. These men and women magnify themselves all the time instead of our Lord Jesus Christ, often making Masonic hand gestures, such as the devil’s horn, the triangle, and many more, but no one sees it. I just watched 1 or 2 recent videos of the false teacher J.D. Farag, and it was as clear as day. He also told the public a false gospel, clearly suggesting that you don’t need to turn from your sins, your worldly ways, and repent and have remorse. Just acknowledging was enough! He mocked the salvation work of our Lord Jesus in a very sly manner. I thought, mamma mia! In his eyes is darkness; I even feel an unclean spirit, no Holy Spirit. And millions follow him worldwide, almost adore him. It’s sad.

Take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be oppressed with surfeiting and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and lest that day come on you at unawares, for as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. But keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.  Luke 21:34-36

For they themselves tell of us how we were received among you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead – Jesus, the One delivering us from the coming wrath. 1 Thessalonians 1:9-10

…. for God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ…  1 Thessalonians 5:9

And now, little children, remain in Him, so that when He appears [in the clouds in the Rapture] we may have boldness and not be ashamed of Him at His coming [not His Second Coming when all the world will see Him on the Mount of Olives, at the end of the 7-year Tribulation].  1 John 2:28

But of that day and hour, knows no man, no, not the angels of Heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark and knew not until the flood came and took them all away, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken and the other left. Watch therefore, for you know not what hour your Lord will come. But know this: that if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched and would not have suffered his house to be broken into. Therefore be you also ready, for in such an hour as you think not, the Son of Man comes.  Matthew 24:36-44  ‘The lesson of the Fig Tree’, a new paragraph, so a new subject, not talking about the Second Coming of the Lord!

>>> After verse 35 in the same chapter, His disciples must have asked Jesus, ‘What is the beginning of all these things that shall come to pass in the last days?’ or ‘When will all these things start?’, I can kind of imagine.

Let not your heart be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I am coming again and will receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. And [to the place] where I am going, you know the way.  John 14:1-4

The One testifying these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!

And so on and so on!

One of the commonest words of greeting used by the early Christians was ‘Maranatha!’, not ‘Merry Christmas!’ It is an Aramaic word which means: ‘The Lord is coming!’ Yes, the early believers lived with the jubilant expectation of the Return of their Lord. Hallelujah!


‘The governments know a Pre-Tribulation Rapture is coming!’

Are the Illuminati better informed about the timing of the Rapture?
Why do they boast or flaunt the following in a song, do you think?

“… Jesus Can’t Save You, Life Starts When The Church Ends”, which means:

“… Jesus cannot save you [which is a blasphemy against Jesus], life [for us, TPTB], starts when the Church [the Bride of Jesus Christ on earth, the Church age] ends [in the Rapture].”

Google is full of anti-PreTrib Rapture propaganda
Type in, for example, ‘satan hates the rapture’ and you’ll notice how they oppress and oppose this event, or ridicule it, or simply leave it out of the search results. Moreover, the first search results are mostly the websites, run by Freemasons.

I personally believe in the pretribulational and premillennial Return of Christ. This viewpoint has been held by most of the evangelical scholars and Bible teachers. And then the world goes through the Great Tribulation under the rule of the antichrist. This seven-year period is ‘the day of God’s wrath’. At its end, Christ will return with His angels to the earth to establish His millennial Kingdom here.

It is written in John 3:36 that he/she who believes in the Lord Jesus Christ has everlasting life, but he/she who does not believe in Jesus Christ will not see life but shall be under the wrath of God.

From Revelation, Chapter 6 to Chapter 18, we notice that when our Lord opens the seals it would be a time of unprecedented time of peril and suffering for the people of the earth. It will be a time of judgment for all those who refuse to trust, even after the testimony of two witnesses of Chapter 11 of the book of Revelation besides the preaching of the everlasting gospel by the angel appointed for the purpose by the Lord as we read in Revelation 14:6. But we notice in the book of Revelation that the people living during this time do not repent. The Holy Spirit repeatedly says that the people did not repent, and neither would they leave worshipping idols and demons. So a just judgment is coming on those who would knowingly remain adamant.
As we understand from the Scriptures, the Lord took away Enoch before the flood came, but preserved Noah and his family.
Furthermore, we notice that Lot was forcibly removed before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.

Even though the church will suffer tribulation, it is never instructed to prepare for The Tribulation, which will be the intense outpouring of God’s wrath, known as The Time of Jacob’s Trouble. There is no mention of the Church during the Tribulation in the book of Revelation.

Christians are holding back the forces of evil on this planet through their fasting, and prayers, and other activities, opposing unfair laws like abortion, euthanasia, teaching gender fluidity to our young, etc. Christians are also actively helping the less fortunate in our society such as the poor.

Once Christians (along with the Holy Spirit dwelling within them) have been removed in the Rapture, then there will be nothing holding back the forces of evil on earth.
