oh please....that nonsense sprang up sometime in the 19th or early 20th century....
Terry, you completely misunderstood what I wrote. I DO NOT see a "pre-tribulation" "rapture" anywhere in the Bible. I was saying that the only "rapture" of the Body of Christ is when He comes back at the end. If you re-read what I wrote, perhaps this time you will get it.
I am among those Christians who believe in a pre-wrath rapture (pre or mid trib):
For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, - I Th 5:9
For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: - 2 Th 2:7-8
