I’ll just reply to this last paragraph. You can see some more comments of mine in Post #77.
You said — “Now if all the ‘good’ believers are going to get zapped out of here why would Paul tell what is require to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand???????”
Of course the Bible is written for all believers, in all ages, in all locations, and many of those believers are dead, while many others haven’t been born yet. The Bible is for all.
As a result, there are going to be believers who will be here and alive “at that time” that the Apostle Paul talks about — even with all the believers (and the dead in Christ) being “taken up” at the time Paul speaks of in Thessalonians.
Those believers who will be here, and who can heed Pauls words (at that time) will be the ones who will accept Christ during that time of the Great Tribulation. These are words for them, the ones who are here.
They did not accept Christ at the time of the “big taking up” , but did so later.
Remember, in Revelation we see that there is an angel sent out to give the everlasting Gospel to the entire world, to all peoples, nations, tribes and languages. This will result in many people being saved at that time, not to say anything about the 144,000 from the 12 tribes (listed in Revelation, tribe by tribe), who will be also proclaiming the Word of God at that time, around the world.
Interesting theory, but there is nothing at all in the Bible to indicate the activity of these one hundred and forty four thousand. Any suggestion as to what (if anything) these folks are doing is pure fiction.
Which again goes to show how much of the pre-trib futurist scenario is built on a fictional rendering of the Biblical texts.
Christ said let no man deceive you.... so what is that GREAT deception that was continually warned would occur????? Ever heard of the mark of the 'beast'? Well it is what is in the mind and how that the physical labor is put forth via that right hand for the beast 'system'.
