Jan 26, 2014 Gary Stearman explains the Rapture
I agree with Mr. Stearman’s interpretation of the Rapture occurring before the Tribulations. This means that all who believe that the Tribulations have already begun are not correct. This fact can be argued with many scriptures apart from the Rapture.
The Rapture itself can be argued from the point of view that Jesus will protect the righteous from the coming Tribulations in the same manner that Noah and Lot with their families were protected. The seven year Tribulation would bring the same destructive force to earth as the flood or the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.
The Lord said that if He would tarry no flesh would survive.
