This is a reply to Geoffrey Grider of NOW THE END BEGINS MINISTRY
Why are you so mixed up. Jesus said , When the Holy Spirit comes ,He will guide you into all truth. The rapture is not the second coming. Your suggestion that the rapture comes be fore the tribulation is erroneous . Satan is a deceiver and the father of lies, he has used many church leaders to deceive many people. Jesus prophesied that this would be one of the endtime signs.You completely dismiss Rev 20v4 which show that those who are martyred by the beast because they did not take the mark, lived and reign with Jesus. Apostasy is already here , which lead to not believing the truth. God do not have anything or anyone to send a strong delusion. Satan is doing it through the false churches now. When the antichrist appear he would not have to do much to capture those unbelievers. Rev 13v
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. Who are those person who would prefer martyrdom to worshiping the beast image. I want an answer.
Rev14v 1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads. 2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: 3 And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. 4 These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. Here is another of his goofs. He claim that these 144000 will be preaching during the great tribulation. Where did he get that , nothing in those verses speak about them doing any preaching to anybody The only activity mention here is that they sing a new song.
