TRIBULATION: Why Most American Christians Will Not Understand…until it is too late


I am reblogging this article from another site. Please click on the link at the bottom and read the whole article. I believe every Christian in America, Europe, and other areas the have relative freedom of religion need to read this article.

Let us examine two reasons I believe that American Christians
will probably not fully understand Tribulation until its too late!
1. We have never faced true tribulation!
I don’t think it’s much of a stretch to say that Americans have never experienced true tribulation as a result of their faith in Jesus. That statement may sound a little condescending or as though it is made with a broad stroke at first glance, but is it really either of those? I dare say it is neither. Sadly it is closer to fact than fiction.
According to recent studies, over 100,000 Christians are killed every year for one reason only, because they claim Jesus as Lord! That’s 274 per day or one every 5.25 minutes!
When you run a Google search of  “how many Christians killed in the united states” you get zero results matching that exact search! However, after digging a bit further I found the chart at the following link that documents all known and reported Christians attacked and or killed by Muslims in the United States since 9/11/2001. http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/Pages/ChristianAttacks.htm
Since 9/11/2001 there have been exactly 9 Christians killed in the US for their faith by Muslims. I am well aware that others besides Muslims may have killed a Christian in the U.S. simply because they were a Christian but I cannot find any evidence or statistics to support that assumption. So by using our documented number of 100,000 Christians a year killed for their faith  – that would be 1.2 million Christians killed since 9/11/2001, and only 9 in the US!
What is the worst thing that 99.9% of Christians in the U.S. can claim as persecution or tribulation? Being made fun of, a lost relationship with a friend or family member or maybe, in an extreme case, the loss of a job. So can we reallyunderstand persecution or tribulation?
Jesus tells us to consider ourselves blessed for persecution because of his name!
Blessed are they, which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. (Matthew 5:10, 11 KJV)

  1. Yes, Not everyone will part take in the Rapture only 30% of born again Christians will, which means 70% will not. Who is worthy? I will tell you and prove who is. read my book and you shall know who I am.

    • Every true believer will take part in the rapture/resurrection of the saints. There are many who are only religious, and not saved; this is demonstrated by lack of fruit in their lives (John 15). Others profess to be Christian but never go to church and don’t even try to live like a believer.

      But every single born-again believer will be caught up, on the condition that they endure in their faith to the end. If we consider the parables of Jesus, such as the parable of the wise and foolish virgins (Matthew 25), about half of those who are part of the church will be caught up.

      The main key to understand regarding this article is that the Rapture is not before the coming of Antichrist. The church will and must face this time period. I prove from Scripture that the pretrib theory has absolutely no basis in truth in my book, The Prewrath Rapture: Answering the Critics. I also disprove the partial rapture, which by your brief comment I suspect is your view. I have read dozens of books on pretrib, and in my book I answer every single point they raise to make a rapture before the final seven years, and this includes a partial rapture. I also have read partial rapture materials.
