Step 3. What Post-trib proclaims
Posttribulational Doctrine says:
That Christ cannot come at anytime,
that certain events must take place first.
That the rapture will occur following
The Church is not appointed unto wrath;
the church will not experience God's wrath only tribulation.
That the Holy Spirit will not be
taken out of the world prior to the tribulation.
That people will be saved during the
tribulation, because the Holy Spirit is not taken out of the world.
That the 144,000 elect Jewish witnesses
will be sealed from God's wrath following the tribulation.
That Gods wrath will be poured
out after the tribulation, includes the Vial and Trumpet Judgments.
This timeline shows a few of the key differences between Post-trib
and Pre-trib teachings; notice first that the Rapture (Day of Christ) occurs after the
tribulation, followed by God's wrath. Also, notice that the Day of the Lord occurs at
approximately the same time as the Rapture. It's important to note that, at no time is God
pouring out his wrath during the tribulation. Believers going through the tribulation
never are subject to God's wrath, only tribulation from Satan. All believers in all ages
have experienced tribulation.
Common misconceptions about Post-trib:
- Tribulation equals wrath from God, according to Post-trib teaching
God's wrath follows the rapture of the Church; believers never experience God's wrath only
tribulation from Satan.
- Post-trib teaches the Day of the Lord occurs at the end of the
tribulation, not at the beginning.
