The Tribulation Survival Guide

Below is part of my guide of “The Rapture Survival Guide” Part 1. I re-posted this under ‘Tribulation Survival Guide’ to help direct searches to the correct area, as more people know what the Rapture is than the Tribulation.

For the original guide follow through to Part 1.

The Rapture, otherwise known as “the Harpazo” is a Christian religious event in which the believers saved in Jesus Christ and those younger than the accountable age vanish from earth in the “twinkling of an eye” (instantly) meeting Jesus in the air. Those who rejected Jesus and were left behind on earth will be subject to 7 years of the wrath of God, known as the Tribulation. Immediately following this will be Jesus’ second triumphant return with those who were raptured previously, where He will claim His throne in Jerusalem and rule for 1000 years.

Following the removal of God’s people from earth in the Rapture and the standing aside by the ‘restrainer’ (the Holy Spirit) there will be utter chaos in the world as people seek to understand what happened. If you’re one of these people – you have found the answers to all the questions you may have on the subject alongside the Bible. Be warned that there will be a “lie” (2 Thessalonians 2:11) that is so powerful it will fool even the smartest of people. Many Christians believe that this lie will be an alien deception of some sort because it’s the only logic that could explain the disappearance of millions of people from earth in a single moment.

The tribulation covers the period of time in which the antichrist (someone who puts themself in place of God) rises to power and makes an existing covenant with Israel – even more spectacular, allowing them to build the third temple. Mid-way through the covenant he sits on the throne in the third temple of Jerusalem and claims to be god, kicking off the second half of the tribulation. (3.5 years into the covenant)

He will then proceed to slaughter all Jews and newly converted Christians throughout the entire globe and all those who refuse to take his ‘mark’ – The Mark of the Beast on either their right hand or forehead. The bible says his mark “666” will need to be ‘calculated’ and won’t be easily identifiable. (Revelation 13:18)

During this rise and reign of the antichrist God will be pouring out His just judgements on this increasingly sinful world which will cause utter devastation on the planet and ultimately cause the nations of the world to come together to battle God at Armageddon.

All of the terms discussed above are discussed in detail below to help you understand God’s plan for the gentiles (non Jews) and the plan for His nation of Israel in the final chapter of earth. So keep reading and feel free to print, copy, email and disseminate this guide to anyone and everyone seeking truth in these ‘biblical’ times as there are no copyrights on it.

If some of these prophecies such as the rapture have already been fulfilled and you’re seeking answers, please keep reading! If anything, the events in the book of Revelation (and re-iterated below) can be used to verify that the bible is 100% truth and given from a God outside of space and time. This section goes hand in hand with the “RELIGION > Christianity” section found in “The Preparedness Encyclopedia” by Fluidic Ice.

1 Corinthians 15:51-53
Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

One of the verses in the bible referencing the rapture of the church.

What is Salvation?
Salvation is the deliverance from sin. To save means to deliver or protect. Jesus equated being saved with entering the kingdom of God (Matthew 19:24-25).

What are we saved from? We are saved from God’s wrath, that is, His judgment of our sin when we meet Him face to face (Romans 5:9; 1 Thessalonians 5:9). Our sin has separated us from God, and the consequence of this violation of God’s law is death (Romans 6:23). Biblical salvation refers to our deliverance from the consequences of sin and therefore involves the removal of sin which is already paid for by Jesus on the cross.

Who does the saving? Only God can remove sin and deliver us from sin’s penalty (2 Timothy 1:9; Titus 3:5). How does God save? God has rescued us through Jesus’s death on the cross and subsequent resurrection which achieved our salvation (Romans 5:10; Ephesians 1:7). Scripture is clear that salvation is the gracious, undeserved gift of God (Ephesians 2:5, 8) which is ours for the taking through faith in Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12). How do we receive salvation? We are saved by faith. First, we must hear the gospel—the good news of Jesus’ death and resurrection (Ephesians 1:13).

Then, we must believe—fully trust the Lord Jesus (Romans 1:16). This involves repentance, a changing of mind about sin and Christ (Acts 3:19), and calling on the name of the Lord (Romans 10:9-10, 13). A definition of salvation would be “The deliverance, by the grace of God, from eternal punishment for sin which is granted to those who accept by faith God’s conditions of repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus.” Salvation is available in Jesus alone (John 14:6; Acts 4:12) and is dependent on God alone for provision, assurance, and security.

Your acceptance or denial of Jesus will affect where you spend eternity, and every soul lives forever it’s just a matter of location. A prerequisite for becoming saved is knowing that God exists and that He created you, the universe and heavens. God wrote the bible to further prove His existence to us alongside the wondrous and spectacular world around us. There are countless incredible facts about the Bible that prove it had to be designed outside of space and time. For a few of these amazing insights read the ‘Evidence for God’ section in ‘Christianity’.

A B Cs to Salvation
The ABCs of Salvation

To Become Saved
Admit that you are a sinner. Any gap between God’s perfect law and our imperfect obedience is called sin, which everyone has committed.

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:23)
“There is none righteous, no, not one;” (Romans 3:10)
“If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (1 John 1:10)
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)

Believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and that God raised Jesus from the dead on the third day, taking the punishment you deserved. Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father but by me.” (John 14:6) Your own good works cannot save you, no matter how good a person you are, and wouldn’t the creator of heaven set the bar for entry?

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
“But God commends his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners. Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

Call upon the name of the Lord and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Through prayer, invite Jesus into your heart to become your personal Lord and Saviour. There is an example prayer below.

“If you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)

“Dear God, I am a sinner and need your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ shed His precious blood and died for my sins. I am willing and ready to change and turn from my sin. I now invite Jesus Christ to come into my heart and life, as my personal Saviour.”

“Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Joel 2:32 / Acts 2:21 / Romans 10:13

You’re Saved!
Once you’ve prayed this prayer, believing it with all your heart, your debt has been paid and you’re now saved by the power of the blood of Jesus! He paid that ultimate price of our sin, sacrificing Himself so that we may live. However it’s easy to say something with your mouth, what takes real effort is living out a life in pursuit of Jesus, walking according to His will for you and leaving your old sinful ways behind.

Below are some more verses related to salvation and justification, as well as some next steps you should take as a new Christian to help cement your faith. If there’s one thing that Satan despises, it’s new Christians. So be prepared to battle against the spiritual forces of wickedness by praying and reading your bible daily as well as putting on your spiritual armour.

● “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
● “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)
● “I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.” (Luke 13:5)
● “Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.” (Galatians 2:16)
● “How that Christ 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 15:3-4)

What to do now
● Talk to God in prayer every day
“And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.” (Matthew 21:22)
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;” (Philippians 4:6)
“But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?” 17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:16-17)

● Be baptized, worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached and the Bible is the final authority on everything.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” (Matthew 28:19)
“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:25)
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16)

● Tell others about Christ
“And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15)
“For if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for necessity is laid upon me; yes, woe is me if I do not preach the gospel!” (1 Corinthians 9:16)
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.” (Romans 1:16)

● Walking with Jesus
If you have received Jesus Christ as your Saviour, as a Christian you should Read your Bible daily to get to know Christ better. Read the Holy Bible (KJV, NKJV, ESV), the guide and tool to kindness and the right path to eternal life. If you encounter questions, resolve them by asking someone at your church or another steadfast Christian to help you with them. “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15)
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” (Psalms 119:105)

● Seek Earnestly
As always if you wish to find answers out for yourself you should search God’s word. If you’re told something, search the scriptures to ensure that is what they say and the wording isn’t twisted. Take caution not to be fooled by what others claim the bible says but do your own research. There will be great apostasy and a falling away from Christianity in the end times. The word of God is living and he can speak to you through his words. So find a bible.
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” (Matthew 7:7-8)

● Godly Armour
You need to equip your spiritual armour. For more information read the Christianity section in ‘The Rapture Survival Guide (TRSG)’.

Next Steps
You should research what the bible has to say on prophecy and the end times. Take a look at the ‘The Rapture’ section in TRSG for more information, but if you have already I recommend watching some of the videos in the ‘Christian Content’ section also within the same document.
