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

Very cool! Thanks for sharing the link.
As regards eschatology, put me down as a “who knows who cares”... how it all ends is a mystery to me, and doesn’t in the least affect how I should be living this day and every day for Jesus!
Thanks, Alamo-Girl, but these people are deaf, dumb, and blind.
They refuse to see that their whole way of thinking and believing is a precariously stacked house of cards that will come tumbling down right on top of them.
The phrase “none so blind as those who will not see” is so appropriate here!
Major prayer for spiritual blindness to be lifted is necessary.
God bless you,
P.S. As an aside, my mother told me she witnessed the death of a friend’s mother, who was Roman Catholic, at her deathbed. She said it was a very hard death with much gasping and labored breathing and much fear. She said the fear in the room was palpable. She said right then she knew that the woman had never accepted Jesus as her Savior and was not going to be with Him.
Contrast that to the deaths of believers in Christ who die peacefully. My own grandmother told me a story of when her mother died. She said she and her sister were standing in front of the coffin weeping. Just above the coffin a voice spoke and said, “Don’t grieve for her. She is with Me now.”
And my father’s cousin, Charles, who died of colon cancer had been drifting in and out of consciousness for about three days before his death. My dad and another family member were sitting with him in the hospital room when he suddenly said, “Who is that man?” They looked at each other and there was only the two of them...they saw no other man and told him so. Charles then said, “That’s okay...it is Jesus.” And the next day he died peacefully.
So I say to all you Catholics out there who think you know it all and are saved, then you’d better rethink what you have been told and believed all these years because it is a lie straight from the pits of hell. And Satan won’t be behind you or anywhere else but right on top of you dragging you down with him.
And it serves me no purpose whatsoever to come here and lie to you. If I were lying, I would not even bother at all because frankly some of you are so obnoxious I’d rather not spend eternity with you. But personal feelings aside, I come because I love Christ and I must obey Him. So I say again, open your eyes and get out of this demonic religion called Catholicism and be born again into the true body of Christ, so that when you die your loved ones may also hear, “Do not grieve for them, they are with Me.”
I’m with you there, AG! Good Scriptures, too.
