THE CHURCH AND THE TRIBULATION*
*By Pastor Bob Hanna*

A prominently held view among Christian believers states that the
church, the Body of Christ, will be included in the tribulation - the
time of Jacob's trouble. Our apostle says otherwise. Writing to members
of the body, he declares, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that
day [the day of the Lord] shall not come except there come a falling
away [literally, a departure] first, and that man of Sin be revealed,
the son of perdition; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that
is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sitteth in the
temple of God, shewing himself that he is God" (ll Thessalonians 2:3,4).

Verse seven states, "He who now letteth [hindereth] will let [hinder]
until he be taken out of the way." That which hinders is the church, the
Body of Christ. The rapture will take us out of the way. "And then shall
that Wicked [one] be revealed." This is the great deceiver whose being
revealed begins the tribulation period. Hence the rapture precedes the
tribulation, which means that the church will not go through the
tribulation. Verses nine through twelve graphically describe the
activities of the man of sin during the first half of the tribulation.
By this time we, members of Christ's body, will be in heaven with our
Lord and Savior "Wherefore comfort one another with these words" (I
Thessalonians 4:18).

Some of those who put the church in the tribulation say that we are
present in the first 3.5 years. Others say that we will not be raptured
until after the full seven years. Either way, there is no substantiation
to be found in Scripture. One verification of the fact of the rapture
preceding the tribulation: our apostle nowhere instructs or advises us
re how we would cope with the conditions or how to survive accordingly.

Our apostle repeatedly assures us in this regard. "God commendeth His
love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from
wrath through Him"- (Romans 5:8,9). "For God hath not appointed us to
wrath but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ" (I Thessalonians
5:9).

*The only way to worry about nothing is to pray about everything.*
