13 Reasons Why the Rapture Will Not Take Place Today
1. You have not been delivered up to be afflicted.
2. You have not been killed.
3. You are not hated of all nations for Jesus' sake.
Matthew 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
4. The Son of Perdition has not been revealed.
5. The Son of Perdition has not entered the temple.
6. The Temple has not been built, yet.
7. The Son of Perdition has not sat in the temple.
8. The Son of Perdition has not declared himself god.
2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
9. The gospel of the kingdom has not been preached in all the world.
Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
Revelation 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people.
10. The Sun has not been darkened.
11. The Moon has not ceased to give her light.
Joel 2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord come.
12. The Stars have not fallen from the sky.
13. The powers of the heavens have not been shaken.
Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 and then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
Consider 2 Thessalonians 2:2 ... be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
The Day of Christ is not at hand UNTIL these things are fulfilled. SO... do not be deceived by anybody who says... the day of Christ is at hand! It could be today! It could happen before the end of this service. It could happen on your way home!
