WILL THERE BE A RAPTURE?
As times worsen and we fall headlong toward the end of the age, many rest secure, thinking that when calamity strikes, the Messiah will rapture them off to heaven. Understand why the Messiah is coming again and read what the Bible says about the “rapture.”
The modern, religious use of the word “rapture” means the joyous catching away of the saints into the clouds to meet the Messiah Yahshua* in the air and to go away with Him. This is said to occur at the end time, at the brink of world war and personal affliction.
Shockingly, the word “rapture” is not found in the Bible. It is an English term derived from the Latin rapiemu (“carried off” or “caught up”) which originated from the Greek harpazo (“caught up”) in 1 Thessalonians 4:17. This “catching away” of the saints is tied in with events surrounding the end-time destruction of the wicked. Let’s study the events that are to take place before the supposed “rapture.”
One good rule in studying almost any prophetic subject of the Bible is to begin at the first mentioned passage and proceed to study all Scriptures relating to the subject, paying close attention to every word. Keep in mind, however, that we will understand little unless we are converted and perfectly neutral (that is, not holding any preconceived opinions), willing to let the Word of Yahweh* say what it will and believe what it says.
*The true name of the Messiah, Yahshua, and His Father’s Name, Yahweh, are restored in these pages. Superstitious scribes and misguided Bible translators took out these true names and substituted the titles—God, Lord and Adonai. The Sacred Name is easily proved in good encyclopedias and dictionaries under the heading “Yahweh,” “Jehovah,” “god,” “Lord” or “Tetragrammaton.” You may also request our free booklets, “The Heavenly Father’s Great Name,” and “The Missing J,” which prove these names conclusively from common sources and Scriptures.
No matter what you have believed about a certain doctrine, consider yourself ignorant before the Heavenly Father Yahweh. Pray earnestly to Him that He will give you His Holy Spirit, that you will think as Yahweh thinks. Do exactly as the Word says, for without obedience you can never learn and understand prophecy correctly.
Constant religious debates separate men into endless factions, creeds, and dissensions. We must always strive to love our fellow man as we strive to love Yahweh. When we disagree, let the light of Scripture decide which way we are to travel—hopefully in concert with one another. Obviously though, there are those who wish to believe a manmade doctrine instead of looking honestly and open-mindedly at what is found in Yahweh’s Word.
“Proof” Verses for the Rapture Doctrine
There are several Scriptures commonly used to “prove” the rapture doctrine which, upon closer examination, cannot or should not be used to do so. Let’s examine each of them for Scriptural authenticity before going into an in-depth study of the rapture.
We will start with 1 Corinthians 15:51-54 which is in part a quotation from Hosea 13:14, and says, Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed—in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: ‘Death has been swallowed up in victory.’
You will note in these verses that there is absolutely no mention whatsoever of being “caught up” in the air or otherwise as is commonly taught within the rapture doctrine. It serves as proof verses for the dead being raised and people being “changed,” but there is no mention of a “raising up.”
The second set of verses we will look at, like the above, could easily serve as proof verses for being resurrected but not being “caught up” in the air. Philippians 3:20-21, But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Master, Yahshua the Messiah, who, by the power that enables Him to bring everything under His control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like His glorious body.
The next set of verses is also commonly used to prove being “caught up.” Upon closer examination and harmonizing the Scriptures, it cannot possibly refer to the common concept of a “rapture.”
Matthew 24:40-41, Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left. Just as the flood took people away to judgment, this also references people being taken in judgment. This entire concept is made much clearer in Luke 17 when Yahshua’s disciples asked specifically where will they be taken and Yahshua answered, ‘Where, Master?’ they asked. He replied, ‘Where there is a dead body, there the vultures will gather.’ The dead bodies of those taken away will be food for the birds; in other words, wherever those who are taken away will be taken to, we don’t want to go. It is better to be left behind than to be food for the vultures as Yahshua said. Those who perished in the flood became food for all the scavengers which Noah released from the ark. Just so, the wicked will be slain and left as food for birds when Yahshua the Messiah returns. You can compare the ones left behind to Noah and his family members who survived the flood. ...Yahweh knows how to rescue righteous men from trials… (2 Peter 2:9).
The final set of verses we will examine prior to digging into the Scriptures is the text most commonly used to “prove” the rapture and that is 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 which reads, For the Master Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of Elohim, and the dead in Messiah will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Master in the air. And so we will be with the Master forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words.
You may know or recall that the apostles taught using the Old Testament; there was no “New” Testament during that era. Therefore, any concept whatsoever that is found in the New Testament must have the support of ample testimony from the Old. Paul would never have introduced a concept that is never even mentioned by Moses or any of the prophets of old! Proponents of the rapture doctrine actually acknowledge this fact and will tell you the rapture has only come into being in the last century or so. Now, if we profess to live by the Holy Bible, how can we just on the surface, believe in a concept that only came to be in the last century? And never verified Scripturally? Yahweh has very explicitly stated, I change not (Malachi 3:16).
We must remember that the study of biblical prophecy and its fulfillment (eschatology) involves a great deal of uncertainty and speculation. However, you cannot make a stand on any “conclusion” unless and until you have Scriptural authority, not only as a bases, but also to verify your points.
Religious Establishment Still Indifferent
To the religious establishment, Yahshua was an imposter, invading their synagogues and teaching strange doctrines. Yahshua came unto His own, and His own received Him not (John 1:11). Yahshua told us to teach His doctrines to the wicked kingdoms of this world. Go into all the world, and preach” the Good News of salvation to every person.
The apostles were obedient to the Messiah's command to spread the Good News of salvation to the extent of being aggressive. They were warned to stop preaching about Yahshua to the people. But, they disobeyed the hierarchy in the Jewish temple, their rulers, elders and scribes at Jerusalem. Instead, they continued preaching even more boldly.
Yet Yahshua exhorts us to watch and pray always, that we may be counted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man. He tells some to make their own escape by fleeing to the mountains during the tribulation. What tribulation? None other than the one revealed in Daniel 7:21-22 and 25-26, I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them until the Ancient of Days came and judgment was given to the saints of the Most High … And he shall speak great words against the Most High and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. Note verse 26, But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion to consume and to destroy it unto the end.
The Bible shows plainly, in Scripture after Scripture, that tribulation and persecution against the true saints of Yahweh will continue through the ages, and will be especially oppressive in the great time of trouble spoken of by the prophet Daniel.
Yahshua the Messiah warned of the same. All of Daniel's visions seem to be about the same events, and all point to the same, final climax; that is, that the persecutions and slaughter of the true saints will continue until the time that Yahshua the Messiah returns, so that every eye will see Him. He will then do two things: He will gather the tares (the wicked) and burn them up. Then He will gather His saints into the air and take them into His glorious 1,000-year Kingdom. See 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 2 Thessalonians 1:3-10 and 2:1-14, and Ezekiel 37:11-14.
I am come in My Father's name and you receive Me not: if another shall come in his own name, him you will receive” (John 5:43). This anti-Messiah will come (you might say) in his own name because he exalts himself above all that is called Elohim. But he will come to his end at the glorious appearing of the Messiah. He will magnify himself even to the Prince of the host of heaven, and by him the daily sacrifice will be taken away (in the coming temple of the Jews) when the abomination of desolation is placed there (Daniel 11:31).
Destruction Cut Short for the Sake of the Saints
Yahshua warned of terrible events to come to this earth: When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso reads, let him understand:) then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains: but pray that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day: for then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be (Matthew 24:15-16, 20-21).
These are the same events Daniel predicted nearly 2,600 years ago. He also said it would be such as never was since there was a nation. Both were for the end time, and both spoke of a resurrection to follow. The time of trouble will be so bad at the end of this age that the destruction will have to be cut short; otherwise, no one would be left alive on the face of the whole earth (Matthew 24:22). Yahweh will have to intervene because of the elect, the righteous ones, who will be on the earth at that time. There will also be some wicked and false prophets. He says to the elect, Then, if any man shall say unto you, ‘Lo, here is the Messiah, or there,’ believe it not. For there shall arise false messiahs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect (Verses 23-24). This includes the “man of sin” in the temple in Jerusalem.
Notice that the “very elect” are still on earth, not raptured to safety during tribulation, while the man of sin reigns. Why does Yahshua tell us not to be fooled by these false messiahs? How will we know they are imposters? We will know because there will be no secret about it when the true Messiah comes to gather His people. For as lightning comes out of the east, and shines even unto the west, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be (Matthew 24:27). Yahshua has not made His second appearance. He was simply explaining to them the manner in which He would come.
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: 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. And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other (Matthew 24:29-31).
General Tribulation Is Coming
No resurrection or catching up of the saints is mentioned, except for the two witnesses, before this resurrection. Mark 13:24 tells the same story. He plainly wrote, But in those days, after the tribulation, the sun shall be darkened. All sorts of tribulation precedes the time when Yahshua will gather His saints to set up His Kingdom on earth. Luke says almost the same thing in chapter 21.
Revelation 1:7 says, Behold He comes with clouds, and every eye shall see Him; and they also which pierced Him, and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. There is absolutely nothing invisible, secret or complicated about that. It is merely a matter of acceptance or non-acceptance.
Why do you not understand my speech? Is it because you cannot hear My word? (John 8:43) And because I tell you the truth, you believe Me not. He that is of Yahweh hears Yahweh's words. You, therefore, hear them not, because you are not of Yahweh (verses 45 and 47).
Will you accept the plain words of Scripture? These are Yahweh’s words, not this writer’s or any other man’s. If you will not believe, then you are not countering anyone but Yahweh, because they are indeed His Words.
Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the Good News which I preached unto you, which also you have received, and wherein you stand; by which also you are saved, if you keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless you have believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received; that Messiah died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:1-4).
This is the Good News in a brief, simple form. There is no promise of life or “catching up of the saints” in Scripture until the wrath of Yahweh passes (see Isaiah. 25:4-9). Your dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, you that dwell in dust: for your dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. Come, My people, enter into your chambers, and shut your doors about you: hide yourself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, Yahweh comes out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain (Isaiah 26:19-21). Please do not be dull of hearing but read with understanding. Clearly some will escape the indignation because they are protected on earth—not in heaven—while Yahweh pours out His indignation on the wicked. Some of the saints will still be living on earth and will sing and glorify Yahweh. This is Scripturally evident!
Read the whole prophecy in Isaiah 24. Notice particularly Verses 5-6 and 14-16, They shall lift up their voice and sing for the majesty of Yahweh. They shall cry aloud from the sea. Wherefore glorify you Yahweh in the fires? Even the Name of Yahweh, Eloah of Israel, in the isles of the seas.
Typical Martyrdom Will Occur
We know from history of the great persecutions in the Middle Ages that martyrdom will occur. Read Foxes Book of Martyrs and others on the subject. Also read Daniel 11:33, which says, And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity and by spoil, many days.
Many saints were burned at the stake and others had limbs cut off, yet they died rejoicing. Are you ready to face such an experience? They loved not their lives unto death (Revelation 12:11). Does that frighten you? If so, you are not fully dressed to meet Yahshua—our husband— when He comes.
Love not the world, neither the things of the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passes away, and the lust thereof: but he that does the will of Elohim abides forever (1 John 2:15-17).
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for My sake and the Glad Tidings, the same shall save it. For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? (Mark 8:35-37).
This is more proof that we join Yahshua when He returns. But that's not all. He brings all before Him to His throne. There He will judge all, rewarding everyone according to their own works.
When the Son of Man shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the throne...before Him shall be gathered all nations: and He shall separate them one from another (Matthew 25:31-32).
For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of Yahweh: and if it first begins at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the Good News of Yahweh? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the wicked and the sinner appear? (1 Peter 4:17-18)
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment...to them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation (Hebrews 9:27-28).
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which Yahshua, the righteous Judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing (2 Timothy 4:7-8).
And one of the elders answered...‘These are they which came out of the great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.’ Therefore are they before the throne of Yahweh, and serve Him day and night in His temple and Yahweh shall wipe away all tears from their eyes (Revelation 7:13-17).
When do these events take place? For as in Adam all die, even so in Messiah shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Messiah the firstfruits; afterward they that are Messiah's at His coming. Then comes the end...The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death (1 Corinthians 15:21-26).
So shall it be at the end of this world; the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing, and gnashing of teeth (Matthew 13:49-50).
...I will say to the reapers, ‘Gather together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into My barn’ (Matthew 13:30).
Kingdom to Come to Earth
Let's calculate from the figures given us in the Book of Daniel. The sanctuary is to be trodden under foot 2,300 days and then cleansed. The angel Gabriel said to Daniel, Understand O son of man; for at the time of the end shall be the vision, (Daniel 8:17). The king of fierce countenance (Verse 23) will magnify himself and ultimately stand up against the Prince of princes, after destroying the mighty and holy people (Verse 24). He continues for a time, times, and a half (about three and one-half years). And when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished. The “things” which shall be finished include everything mentioned heretofore and even to the end of Chapter 12. The statement, When he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people… involves an extension of time beyond the time, times, and a half time to the end of 1,290 days.
Then he comes to his end. Following is a waiting period of 45 days to the resurrection (Daniel 12:11-13). This agrees with Revelation 19:11-21 and 20:1-5. This is the first resurrection. And it shall be said in that day, ‘Lo, this is our Eloah; we have waited for Him, and He will save us: this is Yahweh; we have waited for Him, we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation,’ (Isaiah 25:8-9).
Do you see the resurrection of the righteous and the marriage supper of the Lamb taking place for all people right here on earth? Compare Revelation 19:7-9, And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship Yahweh in the holy mount at Jerusalem, (Isaiah 27:13).
Behold, I show you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall be changed, 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 (1 Corinthians 15:51-52).
And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect (Matthew 24:31).
But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. 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 (Mark 13:24-27).
In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world (John 16:33).
When the Son of Man shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory: and before Him shall be gathered all nations: and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides His sheep from the goats (Matthew 25:31-32).
Before this, He is not called King; but He will be King and Judge over all the earth, sitting on the throne of Yahweh; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the Name of Yahweh, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart. Read Jeremiah 3:14-18. He does not lift the nations up into the air and hold them there while He judges them. Many true worshipers will suffer with the rest of mankind when calamity befalls our world in the end time, according to Scripture. That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto. For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass... (1 Thessalonians 3:3-4).
And Yahweh make you to increase and abound in love one toward another and toward all men, even as we do toward you: to the end He may establish your hearts unblameable in holiness before Yahweh, even our Father, at the coming of our Master, Yahshua the Messiah, with all His saints (1 Thessalonians 3:12-13).
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that you sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Yahshua died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Yahshua will He bring with Him. For this we say unto you by the Word of Yahweh, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Savior shall not precede them which are asleep. For the Master Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of Yahweh: and the dead in Messiah shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Savior in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Master … (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
We are bound to thank Yahweh always for you … for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure: which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of Yahweh, that you may be counted worthy of the Kingdom of Yahweh, for which you also suffer … when the Savior Yahshua shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not Yahweh, and that obey not the message of our Master Yahshua Messiah: who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Master, and from the glory of His power; when He shall come to be glorified in His saints, and to be admired in them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day (2 Thessalonians 1:3-10).
Why the Savior Will Return
There is only one “coming” mentioned here, but for two purposes: first to punish the wicked, and second, to receive His saints. But of the times and seasons, brethren, you have no need that I write unto you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of Yahweh so comes as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, ‘Peace and safety;’ then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation. For Yahweh has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Master Yahshua the Messiah (1 Thessalonians 5:1-4, 8-9).
The Apostle Paul continues the same subject in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12. Both messages are explanations of the day of Yahweh—day of Messiah. Both basically teach one event to accomplish two purposes: to sever the wicked from the just and then to burn them up.
Study also Malachi 4; Joel 3:9-18; Zechariah 14:1-9; Isaiah 24, 25:5-9, 26:12-21, and Chapters 65-66. These teach the Good News of the Kingdom of Yahweh. First, destruction, then the peaceful Kingdom of Yahweh on earth. In 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3, Paul forewarns us against being deceived. The faithful, in various Scriptures, are promised persecution and tribulation. Provided here are plain references to a few of these statements. There are many more, too numerous even to mention.
Which is a manifest token (or sign of approval) of the righteous judgment of Yahweh, that you may be counted worthy of the Kingdom of Yahweh, for which you also suffer (2 Thessalonians 1:5).
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for My sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you (Matthew 5:10-12).
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Savior Yahshua the Messiah, and by our gathering together unto Him... (2 Thessalonians 2:1). In other places in the King James, it is called “the day of Yahweh” or “day of Messiah.”
That you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, that the day of Messiah is at hand (2 Thessalonians 2:2). In other words, we should not get excited or troubled, either by a supernatural being, a word (maybe a prophecy) or letter, possibly stating that the Messiah is due to come immediately. We are not to be alarmed by these or any other means because His appearance will not take place until a great rebellion and backsliding occurs among the so-called Christian world. This will then pave the way for general unbelief in a Supreme Being, except for the “man of sin” who comes claiming to be the Almighty.
Let no man deceive you by any means, for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition (Verse 3).
Anyone teaching a pretribulation rapture of the saints is a deceiver (Verses 2-3), and is teaching contrary to all other Scriptures on the subject shown in this booklet.
You may have been taught that the “man of sin” cannot come until the Body of Messiah is “raptured” out of the way, but the Apostle Paul says that the “man of sin” and the time of backsliding must come first! There is no such thing as a secret rapture. Yahshua will make His appearance to the whole world—at the sound of a great trumpet and voice of the archangel at the last trumpet. And every eye shall see Him, and all families of the earth shall wail because of Him; even so, Amen (Revelation 1:7).
That wicked man of sin, son of perdition, will be destroyed about that time. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. It will be swallowed up in victory, in the resurrection. And Yahweh shall wipe away all tears from our eyes (Revelation 7:17 and Isaiah 25:8).
Compare a new translation, with the sacred Names inserted: And now, what about the coming again of our Master, Yahshua Messiah, and our being gathered together to meet Him? If you hear of people having visions and special messages from Yahweh … do not believe them … For that day will not come until two things happen: first, there will be a time of great rebellion against Yahweh, and then the man of rebellion will come—the son of hell ... He will go in and sit as a mighty one in the temple of Yahweh, claiming that he himself is Elohim … but he himself will not come until the one who is holding him back steps out of the way. Then this wicked one will appear, whom the Savior Yahshua will burn up with the breath of His mouth and destroy with His presence. When He returns, this man of sin will come as Satan's tool, full of satanic power, and will trick everyone with strange demonstrations, and will do great miracles. He will completely fool those who are on their way to hell.
The doctrine of the pretribulation rapture does away with preparing spiritually for the calamity to come on this earth. How shocked many will be when they find themselves not wafting off to heaven, but facing catastrophe as prophesied! Prepare for that future time by study, prayer, and obedience. Protection is promised on earth—not in heaven—for those who choose to be faithful.
Hopefully, this booklet has helped you to discover how you can find peace of mind and safety in Yahweh and His beloved Son!
