What to do if You Miss The Rapture - Author Ronald Nelson

Good evening and welcome to tonight's message. I'll start out right up front by saying this is a very controversial topic that I'm going to talk about, but I believe what I'm going to teach here is truth.

With that being said, the title of tonight's message is; "What to do if you Miss the Rapture."

Now, I know a lot of you don't believe in the Rapture and I'll say right up front, believing in the Rapture has no bearing on your salvation, so that's no the issues here. I do believe there's going to be a Rapture and there's going to be a lot of people left behind, so this message is for those of you that have not received Jesus Christ, and think you're going to get to Heaven by good works or whatever it may be. So when the Rapture happens, keep this message at your fingertips, because it could come in handy at that time. So, like I said, tonight's message I've titled, "What to do if you Miss the Rapture."

The Bible Meditation comes from 1 Thessalonians, 4: 17; "Then we which are alive and remain, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall ever be with the Lord."

Let me just say right up front, when it says "caught up" to meet the Lord in the air, caught up is the English version of harpazo, which I believe is the Greek or Latin word, for Rapture. Those of you to say Rapture is not in the Bible, it does not say Rapture as we would understand it so when it says "caught up" that does refer to the word, Rapture .

So, The Encouraging Word like I said, this is one topic that has been debated and argued for years. I personally, as many of you know, hold to a literal view to the Pre-Tribulation Rapture for what I believe are obvious reasons. However, many will take the Rapture verses of the Bible and either explain them away or they won't talk about them at all. I have studied every wind of doctrine about The Rapture and after looking at all arguments, the only obvious answer to me is, The Pre-Trib Rapture. Now, with that being said and the fact that many will still disagree with my Eschatological view of the Pre-Trib Rapture, I'm going to educate you on what to do after the Rapture of the church if you are still here, If you don't believe it, that's fine, when it happens, you will say, "oh my gosh, they were right" Then you need listen to this message again and you'll know what to do. You can still be saved. Here is something for you to think about. If you don't believe in the Rapture and you are right, fine, then there's nothing for you to worry about, but if I am right, which I believe I am, then you will want to keep this post where you can find it for future reference.

We read in 1 Corinthians, 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."

In my opinion, this is definitely a Rapture verse. Like I said, either this verse will be explained to mean something totally different, or they won't read it at all. So, when the Rapture happens, it will hit the world with such a force it will be sudden destruction as it says in the following Bible verse;

1 Thessalonians, 5: 3; "For when they say, "Peace and Safety," then sudden destruction cometh upon them as travail upon a woman with child and they shall not Escape."

"The word "they" in this verse are those that will be left behind after the Rapture of the church. At that point, there will be no escape from what is about to come upon the world. When this happens, it will be so intense that it will bring about what the Bible refers to as "The Antichrist." He will come on the scene with all the answers to why this happened. He will win the respect of the world with all his lying signs and wonders and he will appear as a man of peace.

Here is what 2 Thessalonians, 2: 8-10; says about this world leader, "And then the Lawless one (who is the Antichrist) will be revealed (and that's after the Rapture) whom the Lord will consume with the breath of his mouth and destroy with the brightness of his coming, (which will be right after the seven years of tribulation are up) the coming of the Lawless one is according to the working of Satan with all power, signs and lying wonders and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they (the unbelievers) did not receive the love of the truth that they might be saved).

I personally believe that this man is already roaming around somewhere in the world. He knows his time has not yet come, but he knows it is near. He knows that the restraining force (which is the holy spirit that indwells all born again Believers) has to be removed before he can come to power. We can clearly see how the world will react to someone that will appear to have all the answers, because as we see with the world in general, people will believe anything that they are told, when in fact they are actually being lied to.

We read this very interesting verse in 2 Thessalonians, 2: 7-8; "The Mystery of lawlessness is already at work, only he who now restrains (which is the born-again Believers that indwell the holy spirit) will do so until he is taken out of the way (that's the Rapture) and then the Lawless one (The Antichrist) will be revealed whom the Lord will consume with the breath of his mouth and destroy with the brightness of his coming."

The Antichrist will not be revealed until the Body of Christ is removed. Now, here's what will happen when this one world leader takes on the role of leading the world into a one world order. He will appear to be a very sophisticated man with all the answers. He will most likely have a very believable lie to explain why the Christians have been taken away. Let me give you a scenario that could take place. He could say the following, "These Christian people have been taken out of the world to suffer because they were in the way from us becoming a one-world system. Now that the Christians are gone we can move forward with our agenda to bring everyone into a perfect Utopia for all to enjoy, and if that is what he says, (and again that's only speculation,) that is a lie and I hope you don't fall for it. I'm just making you aware of this so you know, whatever he says will be a lie, but it will sound very appealing and he will make the Christians appear to be the bad ones. But, just wait! At some point during the tribulation, you will be required to receive some kind of Mark to show your allegiance to this man of sin. You will be required to take his Mark or suffer persecution. If you refuse the Mark, you will not be able to buy, sell or trade anything.

We read this in Revelation, 13: 17; "And no one may buy or sell except one who has the Mark, or the name of the Beast, or the number of his name. So, under no circumstances should you take this Mark.

And here's where it gets scary. You will be required to receive some kind of chip embedded under your skin and then you receive the Mark of the Antichrist which will be the proof that you need to show that you did indeed receive the chip. If you receive this Mark, your eternal fate will have been sealed, there will be no turning back. With all the deception going on in our world today, anybody who is watching what is going on, should be able to see this coming in the near future, and it will be as soon as the church has been moved.

Here's what we read in Daniel, 8: 25; And this is speaking of the Antichrist, "Through his cunning, he shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule and he shall exalt himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity, he shall even rise against The Prince of Princes, but he shall be broken without human means."

And that is by the hand of God. Now, if you refuse to believe this truth, and you are right, life goes on as usual, but if I am right and you refuse the truth of the Bible, then you can expect to go through a time like no other in the history of the world.

Matthew, 24: 21; tells us this, "For then there will be Great Tribulation such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no nor ever shall be."

Let's take the Holocaust as probably the worst event in human history. Six million Jews were killed during this time for no other reason than just being Jewish. The same mindset will be in place, only every Christian will be put to death for no other reason than believing in Jesus Christ. We already see this happening in many parts of the world, but as horrible as the Holocaust was, "The Tribulation' will make this seem like a walk in the park. I'm not even going to get into the evil that is going to take place. just to say this. you don't want to be here!

I recently saw a video on YouTube that really portrayed what it could be like after the Rapture of church and I would suggest that everybody watched this video. It is good, it'll wake you up. It could actually save your soul from eternity in hell.

I would highly suggest you watch this video. It's an hour and a half long. It's in a movie, format. It's very interesting and I truly believe that this is very good scenario of what it could be like, or what it's going to be like. This video lines up with what the Bible teaches almost exactly. This event is going to happen, so please do not let anybody else tell you any different. I wrote this message mainly for those that will not receive Jesus Christ before the Great Tribulation. When you wake up one day and you hear that millions of people have mysteriously vanished from the face of the Earth, follow the instructions that are on this post at any cost, even at the cost of losing your life. It is better to lose your life here on Earth, than to suffer the Wrath of God and be put into torment for all eternity.

But the good news is this, if you choose to accept Jesus Christ before the Rapture happens, you can escape all these things as we read in the following verse,

Luke, 21: 36; "Watch therefore and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass and to stand before the son of man."

Just like I just said before, there is an escape clause, but if you choose to ignore this message, know this, there is still a chance to be saved. The Bible does say that many will come to believe on Jesus Christ during The Tribulation and be saved during, but it will most likely cost you your life. So, you can actually come to the Lord now and escape these things or you can come to Jesus Christ during The Tribulation where you will definitely be put to death for your witness. So that's the choice that have to make. If you don't believe all this, you'll have to wait till the time comes. But fear not, the minute that you are put to death by whatever means it may be, know this, you will be immediately with Jesus Christ in heaven and that will be forever. But here's my concern, if you are not willing to live for Christ now, what makes you think that you will be willing to die for him during "The Tribulation?"

So my advice for you today is this, receive Jesus Christ today and take advantage of the escape clause that was put in place when Jesus Christ took it upon himself to pay for your sins, all you have to do is believe that he did, indeed pay for your sins. In exchange, He gave you His righteousness. What a wonderful exchange. Accept Jesus Christ today and become Born-Again into the Holy Spirit and wait anxiously for the day the Lord takes us home. One more thing before I end this message.

Something for you to think about, the church (The Born Again Believers) are also referred to as the Chastened Bride of Christ. Those of us who have received Jesus as our Lord and Savior are not going to suffer the Wrath of The Tribulation as we read in,

2 Thessalonians, 5: 9; "For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ."

That is talking about the Born-Again Believers. We are betrothed to Jesus Christ and to put it in terms that most will understand, we are engaged to Jesus Christ. Now let me ask you a question, would you put your fiancé through tribulation and beat the heck out of her before you married her? I hardly think so, so why would Jesus allow his Chastened Bride to be put through the Horrors that lie ahead during the tribulation? All throughout the Bible, God has never punished the righteous with the wicked, so why would He start now.

A little trust in the Word of God and a little bit of Common Sense would serve us well. So, you can believe what you are taught in certain sects of Christianity and suffer the wrath of God, or you can believe what the Bible teaches and be saved from the horrors that lie ahead for those that refused to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Most of you will not accept this message as truth and that is the main reason why I wrote it. So when millions of people mysteriously disappear from the face of the Earth and The Tribulation begins, you can refer back to this message and read what I wrote, Hopefully you will choose eternity with Jesus Christ rather than suffer the wrath of God forever. Like I said, if I'm wrong and none of this comes to fruition, then all will be fine and you can go on living with whatever lifestyle you choose. But in the end, unbelievers will be judged for every sin that they ever committed, unless you received the gift of Grace from Jesus Christ. If you receive the gift of Grace, all your sins will have been washed away and you will stand before Jesus Christ white as snow at the Bema Seat of Christ, where you will receive rewards for all the good things that you did once you became Born- Again. We all have a choice to make and nobody can make it for you. So, what will you choose, life eternal with Christ or death forever in the "Lake of Burning Fire." Like I said at the beginning of this message, you will want to keep this message handy and if you throw it away and discard it, that's fine, but when all this comes to fruition, and I believe it is going to, and I believe it could be soon, you will wish you kept it. There are those that I love that are going to be left behind because they don't believe, so please keep this message and when it happens, read this message and believe it because it is truth, and do not let this one world leader deceive you into believing anything else. So, die for your faith during the tribulation, or believe in Christ now and escape the horrors of what lies ahead. If you accept the truth of Jesus Christ during the tribulation, you will most likely be martyred for your belief, but again, what a price to pay. You leave this world in an instant, and you will be with Jesus Christ, so with all that being said, I just pray that you make the right choice before all this happens, or at least you look into it and then, hopefully you will make the right choice, so, with all these things being said, God bless you in all you do and take care!
