One of the most controversial issues within Christendom is the
question, Will the church have to go through the seven-year
Tribulation period, which is yet to come?
The Tribulation will witness the rise of a world dictator who will
have the authority and power to demand that everyone in the world take
his mark and worship him as God. Those who do not will be executed.
Those who hold to a pre-tribulation view understand the Scriptures to
mean all Christians will be taken up out of the world at the Rapture
just before the Tribulation begins. Those who hold to a post-
tribulation view believe the Scriptures teach that Christians will go
through the Tribulation and will be persecuted and killed like
everyone else. It is obvious that both views cannot be right.
The Church and the Tribulation in Genesis;
The Pre-Tribulational Rapture in the Book of Daniel;
The Tribulation Prophesied in the Four Gospels;
The Tribulation Prophesied in Acts;
The Tribulation Prophesied in the Pauline Epistles;
The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Prophesied in the General Epistles;
The Tribulation Prophesied in the Book of Revelation;
The Church After the Rapture;
The Post-Tribulational World
Noah Hutchings, Bob Glaze, Larry
Spargimino, Kenneth Hill, David Schnittger, and Douglas Stauffer, have
considered separate but relative sections of both the Old and New
Testaments to discover if the church will experience this coming time
of famine, death, and sorrow.
