Now when the greatest test of our faith as Christians is at our door steps....The "Well Trained" Christian, believes they will dodge Gods judgement (and chooses to close their mind to the possibility, that they may be tested by God during the tribulation.
Well trained Christians KNOW that Jesus faced God's judgment on their behalf. That is why the Scriptures say Christians are not appointed to wrath.
I have noticed that some "Christians" seem to feel that they need to suffer further, obviously they don't understand the sufficiency of the cross.
It is worthy to note that while Corbley and I aren't suffering physical persecution at this time, Christians through the ages and now worldwide are suffering for their faith.
God's purpose for the tribulation is to restore Israel (Jer. 30:3, 10) and judge the Gentiles (Jer. 30:11)....Isa 13:9 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
I can't see the church involved in this because she has been declared righteous in Christ Jesus
