There will be a great persecution of Christians during the final tribulation period, that will only end with the second coming of Yahshua the Savior).
This doctrine is not something that any properly translated scripture has ever alluded to. It is at the end of the Great Tribulation, which is three and a half years, that the gathering of the Elect takes place (Luke 17:26-37).
The gathering unto Yahweh is also when the true second gathering of Israel occurs. This is when his Elect will be transformed, and reign alongside Yahweh on earth for a thousand years (Isa 11:12, 24:23, Jer 23:5, Eze 16:35-59, Zep 3:1-17, Mat 13:41, 24:31, Mark 13:27, Luke 3:17, Rom 15:12, 2 Tim 2:12, Rev 5:10, 20:6).
Can Great Persecution be avoided with a Rapture?
1 Cor 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of Yahweh: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned
It is only through the true Baptism of the Holy Spirit, that Yahweh’s truths can be known. As well His Spirit, allows true believers, to endure great persecution without denying the faith. One of many horrible lies that the false teachers proclaim, is that all who accept Messiah are automatically born-again.
The Holy Spirit that proceeds forth from Yahweh, teaches us all things and prevents us from following the deceptive doctrines of men. Far too many confuse the tingling sensation they experience from an entertaining well orchestrated cinematic like production, at a building called the church, with that of the infilling of the Holy Spirit that dwells within the true members of Yahweh’s Church.
Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of Yahweh dwells in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Messiah, these are not of Him.
If Christians who claim to be born-again truly were, the fraudulent teachers in these so-called churches would be exposed, and their buildings would be vacant. They provide false messages of hope based on incredible deceptions. Because of these false teachings, the members of these churches, do not understand even the most basic teachings on Salvation, or when it occurs.
2 Cor 4:3-4 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Messiah, who is the image of Yahweh, should shine unto them
