The Biblical pattern does not support a pre-tribulation rapture. God does not rescue His people from adversity, He makes a way for them to go through it. This doctrine is a heresy that infilitrated the certain sects of Christianity in the 1800s. It is nothing more than wishful thinkng and escapism.

" God does not rescue His people from adversity, He makes a way for them to go through it."

Then is it your opinion that the church will experience the wrath/judgments of God in the seventh seal, the seven trumpets and seven vials? I do not see where the church is mentioned in Rev. 9-16 or anyone being exempt from God's judment there. In fact it says those experiencing the judgments refuse to repent. Where is the church?
How do you interpret the rider on the white horse opening the first seal and what is His purpose?

To call those who follow a pre-trib system heretics implies that there is one true eschatological system that has been accepted by the church and I doubt that you can find any one system agreed on by all on this forum. You have labelled Harry Ironsides, Donald G. Barnhouse, Dwight Pentecost, John Walvoord and many other giants in the faith as heretics.

Oh, please . . . Do you read
the Bible while you're drinking?
God rescued the Jews

when Moses led them
out of Egypt. God rescued
the whole human race

when Noah's family
was warned and saved from the Flood.
God Saved all humans

(well, optioned us all)
when He sent Jesus to us.
God always rescues

His people. God knows
WITHOUT His help we are LOST.
Saving His people

is a Scripture riff
as far back as Genesis!
God didn't allow

Adam and Eve to
eat from the Tree of Life and
become immortal

in their Cursed bodies,
rather, He "Raptured" them out
for their own safety.

That is the pattern
throughout Scripture -- God always
Saves His own people.
