Unlike Noah and Lot, we won't be kept from the wrath and judgment of God upon the whole world. Curious because Jesus said that's exactly what is going to happen. Luke 17:26-29; Rev 3:10.

I won't be here and I expect you as a fellow-believer to be with me. However, if you insist on sticking around for the slaughter of almost every person in the world, I don't know if anyone can stop you.

“Unlike Noah and Lot, we won’t be kept from the wrath and judgment of God upon the whole world. Curious because Jesus said that’s exactly what is going to happen. Luke 17:26-29; Rev 3:10. “

Luke 17 - the point there is that salvation and destruction there are simultaneous - as it will be at the end. He comes as a thief for those who don’t believe, those who are His are ready.

Rev 3 - This was written to an actual church extant at the time of writing. It is not a promise to all who believe. In fact John tells us in his Gospel that in this world we will have trials. The general idea conveyed throught the Bible is that God preserves His people THROUGH tribulation, not FROM it.
