Jesus hung on a cross for us all and asked his followers to do the same. The Hebrew people went through 10 plagues (God's wrath) to leave Egypt. The 12 disciples went through intense persecution. The early church was persecuted by the Catholics for hundreds of years, but the final church is just gonna get caught up before any trouble?
The 12 disciples/apostles and early church went through the trials and persecutions that Jesus said they would and which many others are experiencing today. However, what they experienced was not the wrath of God, which is your error. you are making them both the same and they are not. God's coming wrath via the seals, trumpets and bowl judgment will be unlike anything that has happened on the earth and will be specifically aimed at those who are willfully practicing the sinful nature and continue to reject Christ. Why would the Lord send those who already believe in Him through His wrath?
I beg you stop spreading lies, think about what happens, if someone who holds this as truth, and it doesn't happen. I will let it go now, it just pains me to no end, when fables are taught as Biblical truths.
I came to these conclusions based on all related scripture and God's nature, that He does not punish the righteous with the wicked, just as He told Abraham. You need to understand the following:
* There is a difference between the gathering of the church vs. the Lord's returns to the earth to end the age.
* The legal precedent that Jesus has already experienced God's wrath, satisfying it completely.
* That there is a difference between the common trials and persecutions vs. God's coming wrath.
Believers are not appointed to suffer God's coming wrath:
Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! - Rom.5:9
They tell how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead—Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath. - I Thessalonian 1:10
But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. - I Thessalonians 5:9
Because you have kept the word of My patient endurance, I also will keep you [out of] the hour of the trial being about to come upon the whole inhabited world, to try those dwelling upon the earth. - Revelation 3:10
Instead of telling me I'm wrong, refute the scriptures that I have listed. Thanks!
