What about all Those Left Behind
After the Rapture?
After The Rapture takes place and all born again, TRUE and faithful Bible Believing Christians have been caught up with Jesus in the clouds (1 The. 4:16-17), a huge crowd of unbelievers, doubters and wicked people remain.
Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; (KJV) . . . While the expectation of Christ's Coming to Rapture TRUE Christians is the "blessed hope" of all TRUE believers, it is a sobering thought for all the people who are "left behind." The ones who are left are described as deceived apostates and unbelievers who have no hope. They will fall prey to the great lie and will perish and be condemned. (2 Thes.2:10-12). This is a SAD picture, but this is God's direct warning to a defiant and unbelieving world of rebellion and disobedience.
When the Antichrist (Rev.13:1) rises to power, he will openly oppose God, exalt himself above God, and even claim to be God. (2 Thes. 2:3-4). The Bible tells us that the Antichrist will receive power from Satan, to do amazing signs and wonders (2 Thes.2:9). He will be assisted by the False Prophet (Rev.13:11), who shall be a fascinating world religious leader (Rev. 19:20), who encourages the worship of the Antichrist as God.
Bible Prophecy tells us that the Antichrist's reign will consist of a one world government. Prophecy of One World Government: (Isa.14:12-14; Dan.2:41-42; Dan.7:7-8, 11, 23-24; Dan.9:27; Dan.11:44-45). Antichrist will be empowered by Satan and shall deceive the whole world and control world-wide government, world religion and the world's economy. No one will be able to buy or sell or even work except those who have the mark of the beast (Rev. 13:17). The people who are left behind (NOT chose to go) at the Rapture will NOT be able to escape this global system set up during the Tribulation.
This mark of the beast is well on its way of prophecy fulfillment! Read our articles.
Those who are left behind at the Rapture will witness the rise of the Antichrist, his false promises of peace, his horrifying persecution of new and repentant people, and his eventual war with God, which will end with the world-wide war at Armageddon (Zec.12:3). Yes, some of these people will finally come to their senses and turn to Christ Jesus during this time, but they will be martyred and executed for their belief.
THE GREAT DECEPTION
Many, probably most of the people who are left behind when the Rapture takes place will be deceived and never come to TRUE faith in Christ.
They will be imprisoned in the global empire ruled by the satanic forces of the Antichrist and the False Prophet. No matter how Antichrist rises to power, we know that he will complete three things: (1.) He will convince the Jews that he is their long- awaited Messiah. (2.) He will convince the false apostate church that is left behind after the Rapture that he is the TRUE Christ. (3.) He will convince everyone that this is actually the beginning of the millennial kingdom (1000 years. Rev.20). BUT . . . it will NOT be the Millennium, where people live together in peace and harmony for a thousand years . . . it shall instead be the Great Tribulation! Millions shall be killed for their turning to Christ Jesus at this time, of which MANY shall be beheaded!
When I think of the wickedness of this world, it makes me SICK!!! I ran across a web site very recently that said that there was a place where you can purchase REAL shrunken heads on EBAY. I figured this had to be wrong! It is NOT wrong!!! I checked it out! I am NOT going to list the many web sites. I hope NO one really wants to buy one!
And worse yet . . . you can buy kits to make shrunken heads from goat skins. Children can buy "kits" to make Imitation Shrunken Heads for Halloween. Would any TRUE Christian parent allow their child to do this?
What is our world coming to? But then Jesus said there would be little faith when He returned!
Luke 18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? (KJV) . . . Just as God did a few years after the death of Christ, when God's elect among the Jews were singled out, and gathered in from them, and were delivered from their persecutors, and saved from temporal ruin and destruction, while the Roman army made chaotic destruction of their enemies; and so too, will He do at the end of the world. (Ps.46:5; Heb.10:37; 2 Pet.3:8-9)
Nevertheless, when the son of man cometh . . . either to destroy Jerusalem, or to judge the world,
Shall he find faith on the earth? . . . either in the land of Judea, the believers being removed from there, and scattered among the Gentiles, and not a man, at least in Jerusalem, could be found that had any faith in Jesus, as the Messiah . . . OR in the world at the last day.
When Christ Jesus returns, it is my humble opinion that He will find very few who have faith in Him. There will be multitudes who have fallen away, because of the power worldly temptations have upon the weakness of mankind. It seems that faith here means the true and suitable effects of faith, growing out of it, as the fruit out of the firmly planted root. This really is a forewarning from the Saviour, which served as an outstanding caution to His apostles that they might watch, and take care that they might stay strong in their faith. See comment on Luke 18:8 at the end of the chapter. http://www.godcannotlie.org/luke_ch18.htm
Our precious Saviour and Lord, Christ Jesus Himself warned against false Christs, false prophets, false Christians and a false Christianity, brought about with deceptive miraculous signs and wonders and a FALSE messiah. He warned us:
Matthew 24:4-5 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. (KJV)
Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. (KJV)
This warning is Christ Jesus’ own prophecy about the end times. We have seen this happen in our time, Jones and the kool-aid massacre, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Jones . . . and the David Koresh massacre, http://murderpedia.org/male.K/k/koresh-tdm-07.htm
But even the most distrustful person has to admit that the world's ideas of truth and reality have changed drastically in just the past 50 years. People no longer are sure about what is true; and our government sure does not help. People fall for lies ever so FAST!
THE CONCERN OF TRUE BIBLE BELIEVING CHRISTIANS
Many TRUE Bible believing Christians are deeply concerned about those who will be left behind to suffer in the Great Tribulation, after the Lord Jesus Christ has called His own to meet Him in the air (the Rapture).
I believe that salvation will be still be offered in the Tribulation period, but it will most likely end up in martyrdom, by people refusing to accept the mark of the beast, and refusing to worship the Antichrist. If and when anyone accepts the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord, in the Great Tribulation period, believing and having faith in the atoning work of Christ Jesus on the cross, their soul shall be saved, just as it is today, but as I said, they would suffer physical death, quite possibly by beheading. Salvation has always been the same . . . ONLY by faith in Christ (John 14:6; Acts 4:12), and it is the only hope for any lost soul . . . either before or after the Rapture.
