Rapture or Tribulation?
By Chris Schang
Rapture or Tribulation. This is essentially the choice every on earth must make. Do they accept the pardon for sin as provided by Jesus Christ and his completed work on the Cross? Or do they choose to remain in the natural unrepentant state and go through the wrath of God during the Tribulation period? The fact is and the Bible confirms that most people will choose to remain in the unrepentant state and lead themselves down the wide path of destruction. The Bible says that narrow is the gate that leads to salvation and wide is he gate that leads to destruction, Rapture or Tribulation, the choice is yours.
Folks, ever since the fall of man in the Garden or Eden we have been under a terrible curse that has not only effected mankind but it has effected the total sum or Creation as well. God has provided a remedy for out predicament. And that remedy is the shed blood of Jesus Chris on the Cross. All we have to do in order to saved is to believe in God's Messiah as our Lord and Savior. That he took upon himself the totality of mankind's sins on the Cross and paid that sin debt in full. I strongly encourage those who has delayed making a decision for Jesus to reconsider and make a decision today. The eternal destiny of billions of people are at stake.
The rapture is when the Lord Jesus Chris will return from Heaven. He will come in the air, with the trumpet call of God, and will call all believers to him to receive glorious resurrection bodies suitable for eternity. On the other hand, those who sit on the fence or refuse to make a decision for Christ will find themselves going through the worst seven years on earth in the time known as the Tribulation period. This is a time of unparalleled destruction and death as God's wrath is poured out on unsuspecting unbelievers. The purpose of the Tribulation besides punishment and judgment is to bring about the nation redemption and regeneration of Israel.
I would like to call on everyone to make that fateful decision between rapture or tribulation. It is one that will have eternal consequences for those who make a decision either way. The Bible says that God does not desire that any perish but come to faith in Jesus Christ.
