    So where do you stand on the Rapture

    (and yes - we know the word Rapture does NOT appear in the Bible - so no need to mention that.)

    There was a time in my life that I was pretty dogmatic about the timing of the rapture, and nothing was going to convince me otherwise. Now that I'm older and have studied it a lot more and can argue pre, mid, and post, I have decided that I am pan-trib. God is in control and it will all Pan out in the end. That said I lean in the direction of a hybrid of mid and post trib but like I said I'm not dogmatic. Pre-trib has the most press, (Thank you Left Behind) but really doesn't have as much Scriptural support when you really look at it.

    I hate that A-Tribism is never mentioned. Almost as if it is assumed everyone believes in a 7 year tribulation period.

    For the record, I believe in a Tribulation period that is running concurrently with the inaugurated kingdom. Just not a 7 year thingie.

    Agreed. I just go with post-trib cause I don't feel like explaining it all the time.

    Absolutely...It annoys me when people just disregard the amil camp and the associated beliefs.

    I agree! Jesus Christ said: John 16:33* These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

    Neither does the word "trinity" but it is clearly taught in the Bible. So is the rapture clearly taught in the Bible (1 Thes. 4:17; 1 Cor. 15:51-52). I am a premillennial post-tribber.

    The "rapture" occurs on the Day of the Lord, when the Lord Jesus returns and eliminates all competing kingdoms. Those who reject Jesus will be destroyed.

    The "rapture" is a picture of God's people rushing to meet the returning King - it has it's roots in ancient practices of a King's subjects rushing out of the city to greet the victorious king as he returns.

    The Bible does not teach a Tim LaHaye-style of believers disappearing and everyone else being "left behind." In Matthew 24, where the "left behind" language has been forcibly ripped from its context, those who are left behind are the righteous, while those who are "taken" are the wicked.

    Although I am certainly not a fan of Tim LaHaye or the Pre-trib rapture, the rapture does refer to the reunion of the LIVING with Christ IN THE AIR before he comes down to earth while he is still in the clouds - 1 Thes. 5:17 and Matthew 24:30.

    Never said we were victims, Rev. You're the one who read that into my statement. I was just trying to point out that, often during eschatology debates and discussions, the talk often goes pretrib premil or posttrib premil. Amil tends to get left out.

    If you think that means I'm playing the "victim" card, then I'd kinda like to know why?

    I quoted you but in truth my statement was made due to all the the whines about it. Not just your post.

    Ok so people don't think about it or may see it differently than you who take it a bit more serious. Interject, present, and make your case for your position rather than complain no one else brought it up. Just because you take it that seriously does not mean others should or will.

    It is a fact that in some sections of the country anyone but a Scofield-pre-trib-rapture ready-dispensationalist is viewed with suspicion. If you question the belief that "he who speaks against Israel speaks against God" you are considered borderline!

    Yes, that's what I said:

    "The 'rapture' is a picture of God's people rushing to meet the returning King - it has it's roots in ancient practices of a King's subjects rushing out of the city to greet the victorious king as he returns."

    Some pre-trib-dispensationalists on this BB question the Salvation of anyone who rejects that doctrine. They just won't say it!
