    Too bad we don't have a pre-1800 test to compare it with.

    Good Poll! Looks like everyone so far is pretty much in agreement.

    1 Thesalonians 5:1-9; Rom. 5:9; Rev. 3:10). The Great Tribulation is expressly called the day of God's wrath.
    Today the Lord is withholding His anger; He is seated upon a throne of grace, but the day
    approaches when He will take the seat of judgment. Then "the day of his wrath" will be upon
    all the world (Ps. 110:5; Is. 13:6-13; Rev. 6:16-17). It is true that in every century, the
    churches have been subjected to persecution, but this is quite different from the Great
    Tribulation. The general persecutions of the saints are caused by the wrath of wicked men and
    the devil, whereas the seven-year Tribulation is a period especially pertaining to God's wrath
    (Rev. 6:16-17; 14:10). Some feel that the church will not be saved out from the time of
    great wrath, but will be saved through this wrath. This cannot be true, since the Bible clearly
    reveals that those who are on earth during the Great Tribulation will not be delivered from wrath
    but will be overcome (Rev. 13:7). The Scriptures that promise church-age believers deliverance
    from wrath must refer to salvation out from the very presence of the wrath. Concerning the Great
    Tribulation, we are told that "as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the
    whole earth" (Lk. 21:35). Therefore, church-age believers must either be physically removed
    from the earth, or they will be involved in the day of wrath. God promises removal.
    "... I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try
    them that dwell upon the earth" (Rev. 3:10).

    Does a partial, pre-tribulation translation of only the obedient, watching, and faithful saints count as "pre-tribulation rapture of the Church"? Until I know the answer to that, I can't answer this poll!

    Assuming you BELIEVE this interpretation (we call it "baptist bride", a very small sect of pre-trib, pre-mil) would you start a new thread on this. Find out how many believe all or part of this very unique perspective.

    BTW, I would think that even a partial rapture that is PRE-trib = pre-trib.
