In Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, he talks about the physical resurrection of the body— “[For] Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles. Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time” (1 Corinthians 15:3-8, NKJV). Paul’s evidence lay in the accounts of more than five-hundred credible witnesses.
Yeshua’s disciples came to him one day and asked: “What will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” (Matthew 24:3). Yeshua then began to tell His disciples about all the difficult things that would happen at the end of the age, especially to the nation of Israel—deception, wars, famines, pestilences, earthquakes and more. Then He said, “All these are the beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:8), but the end would not come immediately.
The following is a pre-tribulation apologetics response to commonly asked questions about the general timing of the rapture of the church. A very Hebrew response being a discussion framed around questions. Is the rapture pre-tribulation, middle, or post-tribulation? That is the fundamental question this white paper seeks to answer. It is framed in response to these common questions and attempts to explain through validation with scripture. It is, of course, challenging to piece together old and new testament prophesies, mainly since they are not spoken in chronological order. Time is a necessity for human construct. But God having created time is outside of its limited boundaries.
