Concepts such as a worldwide tribulation and a rapture of the church are premillennial inventions based on gross misinterpretations of scripture.
The Fallacy of the religious doctrine that the "First Resurrection" spoken of in Revelations has already taken place.
Religious doctrines such as the first resurrection has already happened is based on the rejection and omission of many Scriptures.
Even the great apostle Paul's own Word's expose this religious doctrine as false.
Phil. 3:10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead
. (Which has not yet happened for him even though he was stoned.)
12 Not as though I had already attained
, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend
that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended
: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before
14 I press toward the mark
for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
The Preaching that the resurrection is already past is not new.
2 Tim. 2:18 Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already
; and overthrow the faith of some.
19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
People who have been snared by this religious tradition believe they do not have to "Endure to the end" as Paul and Stephen did, because they are already resurrected and gifted with eternal life. They don't have to put on the Armor of God to resist satan because in their religion satan is already bound.
This week is the rejected Feast of Tabernacles which is a Feast of the Christ that He Created for us to remind us that His People dwell on this earth in a temporary dwelling. That we wait for the second coming of Christ. And not only us, but those who died in Faith also rest in Hope that God will raise them from the dead upon His return and gift them with the Body He gave to the Lord's Christ when He raised Him from the dead.
And that these will reign with Him on earth for a time before the Last Great Day, the eighth day of the Feast when the end of time comes.
Jesus observed this Holy Feast of His and quoted Isaiah.
John 7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast
, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
Is. 55:1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me
, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
4 Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.
5 Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the LORD thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.
6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found
, (While we are still alive) call ye upon him while he is near:
7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD
, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Blessed be the Lord's Christ and His Father and my Father, His God and my God.
Ps. 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
116 Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope. (first resurrection)
117 Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe: and I will have respect unto thy statutes continually.
123 Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the word of thy righteousness.
124 Deal with thy servant according unto thy mercy, and teach me thy statutes.
125 I am thy servant; give me understanding, that I may know thy testimonies.
126 It is time for thee, LORD, to work: for they have made void thy law.
127 Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.
132 Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name.
133 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.
134 Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep thy precepts.
170 Let my supplication come before thee: deliver me according to thy word.
171 My lips shall utter praise, when thou hast taught me thy statutes.
172 My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy commandments are righteousness.
173 Let thine hand help me; for I have chosen thy precepts.
174 I have longed for thy salvation, O LORD; and thy law is my delight.
175 Let my soul live, and it shall praise thee; and let thy judgments help me.
176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments.
