Protestant Church of America                                Tribulation and the End Times   Tribulation: The rapture occurs on the seventh (last) trump and ends the mystery of God. Meaning we will see the Lord return in the sky on the last tribulation. He will send his angels to gather us from around the world and join him in the sky, just before he sends fire to destroy the non-repentant doers of evil and their mighty armies. He has told us that we will know the season of when this will come and we are to be watchful or we will be caught unprepared; like a thief in the night; like the virgins with no oil for their lamps.     Gods people have always had to endure hardships, so don't think that we wont have to endure hardships as well. He has warned us with that verse and told us to prepare for these hardships. Just as he told Joseph to prepare for the drought in Egypt and stock pile food and necessities; and just as He told Noah to build an ark and fill it with supplies. We must do the same and more; or we will be caught like a thief in the night. Prepare now, Prepare, Prepare, Prepare!  If you don't need it your children will. You are better off to have something and never need it; than to need something and not have it. Prepare now during the pre-tribulation period.                                             Get ready your shelter and supplies. Isaiah 26  20.  Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.  21.  For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity  End of tribulations, this is also the time for the resurrection. 1 Corinthians 15- (this would be the seventh trump in Revelations ) 52.  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. This would be the seventh trump in Revelations. Matthew 24  29.  Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:  30.  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 1 Thessalonians 4-   16.  For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:  17.  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 2 Thessalonians 1  7.  And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,  8.  In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.                                                     Here is our resurrection! Mark 13  13.  And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.  23.  But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.  24.  But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,  25.  And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.  26.  And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.  27.  And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven. Revelation 8  2.  And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. Revelation 10- (the second coming- the last trump mentioned in 1 Corinthians 15 v 52 & 1 Thessalonians 4 v 16)  7.  But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished. Revelation 16  17.  And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.  John 16 33.  These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.    Get ready now, for in the end times a great army will be coming to destroy us, but they will not succeed. The mystery of God will be revealed on the seventh trump (last trump). The dead in Christ shall rise. Jesus shall send his Angels to gather his us and meet him in the heavens. He will then send fire down and destroy all the unrepentant. Defeating all of the so called great armies and awful leaders of the world. After this all will be called and resurrected to the Great and Righteous Judgment Day of the Lord.   Get ready; we have a lot to do. Do not trust man, media, political parties or any of mans organizations. Trust in the Lord thy God, the Great I Am, the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.   The Word of God has told us in Isaiah 26 to enter into our chambers while trouble passes and in Luke 22 Jesus has told us that we must have a sword. Now combine this with the Christian basics listed on the next page and we will be ready:    Then you will be part of the remnant and you should prepare to live through the tribulation. Keep your lamps full of oil and don't be caught like a thief in the night. Get ready now, because the time draws nearer every day. The Word of God tells us to have a room that we can enter into as if it were for a short time (as if means that its not short, preparation makes it seem short) , while the trouble passes by. Jesus told us to sell our robe and buy a sword if we didn't have one. Get ready.      I pray you will awake and resist evils that are forced upon us, before greater Tribulation is dropped upon us as well. Don't be caught like a thief in the night, keep your lamps oiled and trimmed, have your sword and have a room that you can enter into as if it were a short time. Most of all repent!                      Repent now and be baptized!
