One Minute After The Pretribulation Rapture Of The Church, The Bible Becomes A Closed Book For Those Left Behind by Geoffrey Grider for Now The End Begins
One minute after the amazing Pretribulation Rapture of the Church takes place, a worldwide famine will instantly transpire. But it’s not a famine of food.
One minute after the Pretribulation Rapture takes place, a worldwide famine will instantly transpire. It won’t be a famine of food, it will be a famine of not being able to have the word of God.
The Bible doctrine of the Pretribulation Rapture is so entrenched in Scripture that it’s not only in the New Testament, it’s also in the Old Testament as well. Enoch, living before both the Flood of Noah and before the Law of Moses is a type of a Christian who never sees death and is translated directly to Heaven in his own private rapture. In Song of Solomon 2:8-10 (KJV), we read the glorious story of the Bride, a type of the Church, being called “up and away” by her Beloved, who is “looking down” through the lattice work from up above.
“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it. In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.” Amos 8:11-13 (KJV)
But one minute after this amazing event takes place, a worldwide famine will instantly transpire. It won’t be a famine of food, it will be a famine of not being able to have the word of God. Those are the verses we quoted at the very top of this article. Go back and read them again, and let it sink it.
Amos is one of my favorite OT prophets, God gives him an amazing set of revelations and visions. Historically, Amos was a peer with Hosea, and he came after Joel. He prophesied judgment on Israel at the hands of the Assyrian army, which absolutely came to pass. But if all Amos has to say was simply an accounting of God judging Israel, it would have limited application for us today. But the prophecy of Amos, like most prophecy, has a double application. It applied to the Israel then, and it will apply to Israel in the time of Jacob’s trouble, after the Rapture of the Church.
