PROPHECY QUESTION 60
My question is, If the Lord comes and I’m still here on earth does this mean that I will be getting the wrath of God on earth or will my family and I be safe from all the wrath he does?
After the Lord comes and you are still on earth it means that you are not saved and will endure the judgments that fall upon mankind during that time.
The biggest event in modern history will not be Iran dropping a nuclear bombs on Israel, but the disappearing of millions of born again Christians from the earth. All those who are saved will go up with Him, even the dead in Christ will arise and go. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)
That the Lord will comes is mentioned all through the Bible. His coming will be in two stages: First, He will down near the earth and rapture all His people from the grave and earth up into the air. Then after a short period of judgment on a wicked world He will come right down to earth and destroy the wicked nations and set up a kingdom on this earth where righteousness rules.
The first stage of His coming is for the church; His second for Israel. His coming for the church is not preceded by signs. It can happen at any time. His people are “waiting” for Him (1 Thessalonians 1:10) not watching for signs. Israel was told to watch for signs of His coming (Matthew 25:13) These signs for His coming to Israel are many today. After 2600 years she is back in the land and a nation again . Before He come to them He is coming for the church. Are you ready? You might ask what shall I do to be ready? The Bible is very clear that you must repent or you will perish (Luke 13:3) Repentance is a change of mind or purpose to sinning against God. Once you have had that change you must put your trust 100% is the Saviour and His sacrifice for you and your sins. (John 3:16) Do not wait until it is too late? Do it now!
