Many churches lure believers with a promise of a rapture escape from tribulation. Jesus Christ never promised us an escape from tribulation. He said:”In this world you will have tribulation but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” Jesus said:”I will never leave you and I will never forsake you.” He will be WITH YOU in tribulation IF you stay WITH HIM.
If you want eternal life you have to follow Jesus Christ wherever He takes you. Jesus said that:”He who loves father or mother or brother or sister or even his own life more than Me is not worthy of Me.” Jesus did not promise an escape. He promises us eternal life IF we ENDURE WITH HIM UNTIL THE VERY END.
The disciples died as martyrs and through the ages many believers were killed for their faith in Jesus Christ. Right now people are being killed because they confess to believe in Jesus Christ. These people who believe the rapture escape lie, do they expect to be welcomed into the same company as those who gave everything for Jesus, who died for Jesus?
If you follow Jesus Christ then you follow Him wherever He guides you, even if it costs you your life, because if you turn away from Him, you will not have eternal life. Are you willing to follow Jesus Christ even through the valley of the shadow of death or do you want an easy escape? Because then you will not follow Jesus. You might join a church and believe a false promise but you have never started following Jesus Christ.
May Jesus bless you.
