God Has Not Appointed Us to Wrath

Here is a verse of Scripture the “pretrib rapture” liars trumpet ubiquitously today in an effort to sell the world on their deception: “For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him” (I Thessalonians 5:9-10).  Allow me to expose their gross error in interpreting this passage of Scripture.

First of all, notice who wrote these words … IT WAS PAUL!!!  The man I wrote about in last week’s blog who absolutely knew the “gathering together (rapture)” of the saints (including himself!) to meet Christ in the air at his return would NOT occur until the “man of sin (Antichrist) first came onto the world seen and carried out ALL his prophesied evil.  How did Paul know this was true?  Because the disciples had told him what Christ had said the day they asked him, “What shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” (Matthew 24:3) … To which Jesus responded by listing a whole bunch of calamities, the coming of the Antichrist who would bring on Great Tribulation, and then said, “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: And THEN shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven…and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect (believers) from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other” (Matthew 24:29-31).

Let me just be frank about the Apostle Paul, my friend; if you had lived in Paul’s day and walked up to him and said, “Hey Paul, did you know Jesus is going to return and rapture (gather up) his believers from all over the Earth BEFORE the Antichrist’s Great Tribulation period?” … he would have probably looked you in the eye and said, “Are you an idiot?  What demon told you such nonsense?  Jesus Christ is only coming back ONE TIME to gather his elect together, and that’s at the VERY END of this age of sin!”  So what about Paul’s “wrath” verse above?  What did he mean by those words?

The answer is simple: A man of Paul’s conviction surely knew the Scriptures well (Old Testament only at that time!) and therefore he knew the words of the prophet Isaiah concerning the day of the Lord’s return: “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. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible…Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the WRATH of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his FIERCE ANGER” (Isaiah 13:9-13).  Do you see?  Friend, the DAY of the LORD’S WRATH is the DAY OF HIS SECOND COMING!!!  And when is that day?  It is exactly when Jesus Christ said, “immediately AFTER the tribulation of those days”.  Notice Isaiah mentions the sun being darkened, the moon and stars not giving their light, and the heavens shaking?  Jesus was referring to Isaiah’s words when he described the day of his return (read them again in paragraph #2 above) and Paul was too when he spoke about the SAME DAY as the “day of the Lord’s wrath”.

Do you now see the gross error of today’s “pretrib rapture” liars concerning Paul’s “wrath” verse?  They are trying to make you think the Great Tribulation period is the time of God’s Wrath, when it is really only the time “immediately AFTER the tribulation of those days” on the day Jesus Christ returns to gather up (rapture) his elect.  I tell you the truth, when Paul wrote “God hath not appointed us (the believers) to wrath” he was referring to that great day of Christ’s Second Coming when the whole Earth will burn and ALL the beast-marked wicked people will suffer the wrath of God by being destroyed in fire (which will cast their disobedient souls into hell) while the righteous will not suffer God’s wrath because they will be “caught up” into the air to be safe with the Lord forevermore.  Hallelujah.

Come quickly precious Lord Jesus,


Approximately 901 Weeks (Sabbaths) Remaining Till Christ's Return!


  1. You error because you do not know the Word of God.

    (2Th 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;

    The Comforter resides in Christians. The Comforter, or Holy Spirit has to be removed before the man of sain (Anti-Christ) is revealed.

    Christians have the Holy Spirit.

    Only after the Holy Spirit is removed from the Earth can the Antichrist be revealed.

    It goes round and round like a dog chasing it's tail.

    1 can not happen till the other happens, but the revealing cannot happen till the Holy Spirit who resides in Christians has been removed.

    God will not remove the Comforter till all His children are removed.

    That means that a Pre-Tribulation Rapture MUST happen before the End Times can begin.

    God has not appointed His children to wrath.

    The faithful ones, that is the 5 virgins that were NOT foolish mentioned in Revelations will be removed from Earth before judgement can come.

    Look at parralells in God's Word.

    Every Earth shattering event is preceded by God removing those from the trouble. Noah is but one of them. Now, there are appointed times to suffer, but not during the times when unbelievers are being punished.

  2. I could not have said it better. Verse 7 of 2Thess. chapter 2 says that the one who is restraining will do so until He is taken out of the way. Notice the capitalized word "He". Furthermore, Luke 21:36. Read the whole chapter as Jesus expounds about the end of the age and his coming, but I will focus on this verse. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape.....(escape what????) to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man. Thank you Jesus for this blessed hope!!!!
