 THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF ANY  BIBLE VERSES SHOWING  7 YR PRE TRIBULATION RAPTURE

BIBLE VERSES EVIDENCE:

While JESUS was alive, He prayed to His Father: "I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.  John 17:15 (KJV)

JESUS gave signs of what must happen before His Return:  "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:"  Matt. 24:29 (KJV)

 "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:   Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord." I Thess. 4:16-17 (KJV)

"In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed."  I Corin. 15:52

The "Resurrection" has been erroneously labeled The "Rapture". 

  9 For God/JESUS hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by JESUS

KJV

        JESUS IS COMING SOON!

       We are followers of JESUS Only

 Seekers of the truth start here by praying

to the Holy Spirit to reveal the truth to you. 

Acts 17:10-12

10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.

11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

12 Therefore many of them believed; also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few.
KJV

Luke 21:25-28

25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 

27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
KJV

How to Pray with 7 Tips from the Bible‏

How to Pray with 7 Tips from the Bible‏

Seven Laws of Prayer eBook


1. The Law of a Pure Heart.

"Let us draw near ... having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience..." (HEBREWS 10:22). God's first condition is that my heart must be pure. "If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me" (PSALM 66:18). What a statement!

In ISAIAH 1:15, God says: "I will hide mine eyes ... I will not hear". Sin in your heart will close God's ear and cut off all communication with Him. It is useless for me to pray when I am carrying a sin on my conscience which I have not yet acknowledged. I might as well get up from my knees if there is anything in my life which I know is contrary to the will of God.

God said to Joshua: "Get thee up ... Israel hath sinned ... Therefore ... Israel could not stand before their enemies ... neither will I be with you any more, except ye destroy the accursed from among you" (JOSHUA 7:10-12).

The Lord told Joshua to stop praying. Why? Because He does not want to communicate with a soul that remains in sin. Repentance and cleansing from sin are essential for fellowship with God.

2. The Law of a Forgiving Spirit

"And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any..." (MARK 11:25). This is a condition for getting your prayers answered.

I fear that the spirit of unforgiveness is more widespread than one would generally notice. Often you can find it with people who are, outwardly, very sincere, and who take an active part in the work of the Lord; even these people can harbour a spirit of unforgiveness towards somebody else. If we are not prepared to forgive, our prayer will not be acceptable to God. A forgiving spirit is so essential that the Lord made a drastic statement in Mark: "But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive you your trespasses" (MARK 11:26, MATTHEW 6:15). I will not try to explain this mysterious statement of the Lord. However, in the light of it, I search my own heart and watch and pray earnestly that I will never be guilty of this horrible sin, and that I will never be subject to this terrible judgment.

3. The Law of the Right Motive

"Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts" (JAMES 4:3).

I can go to God and ask Him for things which are completely in order: e.g. I can ask Him to use the Gospel for the salvation of souls, to let evangelisation prosper, etc.; but if my motive is my own pleasure, my own wealth or the approval of people, my prayer will not be answered.

When I ask God for success in my ministry, can I ask Him with equal sincerity to give my brother the same or even greater success than what I am praying for myself? Can I rejoice when God pours His Spirit out upon another brother or sister and uses them mightily? Can I rejoice as much as though God had used myself? If I cannot do this, my motive for praying is wrong.

If my prayer is to be victorious prayer, which guarantees an answer, it is not to be inspired by the desire for selfish pleasure or success.

A proper motive is essential in order to receive an answer to our prayer. And there is only one reason to pray which is right - namely: "That God in all things may be glorified" (1 PETER 4:11; 1 CORINTHIANS 10:31). Is this my motive?

4. The Law of Faith

"Let him ask in faith, nothing wavering..." (JAMES 1:6). Weymouth translates this as: "Let him... have no doubts." Faith is indispensable if we want to receive answers to our prayers, for "without faith it is impossible to please him" (HEBREWS 11:6). However, when there is faith, God works miracles.

In the Gospel of Mark our Lord gave an amazing promise to the praying soul: "...whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe...he shall have whatsoever he saith" (MARK 11:23). How many of us have prayed that the mountains which block the spreading of the Gospel should be removed! Yet, how few of us have seen these mountains being cast into the sea? Why? Because of our unbelief.

5. Pray According to the Will of God

"If we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us" (1 JOHN 5:14). Everything depends on this. First we have to find out God's will, and we have to pray according to this will. Without knowing God's will it is impossible to have faith that moves mountains.

Paul's prayer for the Colossians was that they "might be filled with the knowledge of his will" (COLOSSIANS 1:9). This requires an intimate knowledge of God Himself. How do we get to know the desires of our friends? By talking to them, and by being with them often. How do we get to know God's will? By five-minute-prayers? No! It is by waiting, waiting, and waiting on God. We cannot get to know the will of God within five minutes, perhaps not even in five hours, and possibly not even in five days. It is a matter of waiting before God daily, and learning His will for that day.

6. Praying in the Name of Jesus

Jesus said: "If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it" (JOHN 14:14). What a promise!

But what does it mean, to ask in the Name of Jesus? Something much deeper than some people think. It is not a matter of quoting a formula. This cannot achieve a result. A formula can be on our lips, but have no meaning whatsoever.

But what is its meaning then?

An employee goes to the bank to draw money on behalf of his employer by presenting a cheque with the employer's name on it. He receives 1000 dollars. Why? Because the bank clerk knew the employee? No! The employee could not receive the money just by his own efforts; however, if he asks for it in the name of his employer, he will receive the full amount which is written on the cheque.

To ask in the Name of Jesus means to ask for things Jesus would like. God will never say no to this: He cannot, because He loves His Son; and when we pray in the Name of Jesus our prayer must be answered, even if it means removing a mountain.

7. Praying in the Holy Spirit

"Praying in the Holy Ghost" (JUDE 20) is the secret of every victorious prayer. It is impossible to ask in faith if we are not controlled and inspired by the Holy Ghost. The Holy Spirit is the only one who can give faith; He is the only one who knows what Jesus wants, the only one who can reveal the will of God.

How can we pray in the Holy Ghost? The secret can be found in GALATIANS 5:25: "If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit." Before we can pray in the Holy Spirit, we must learn to walk in the Spirit; i.e. to live in unbroken fellowship with God, every day and every hour of the day, in fact "moment by moment".

Only then, once we have learnt to do that, will we always be able to pray with a pure heart, with a forgiving spirit, with the right motive, with unreserved faith, according to the will of God, and in the Name of Jesus. Then, and only then, can we receive answers to our prayers. Then "it shall happen". Then we will be able to challenge every mountain in the Name of the Lord Jesus.

Provided that we walk in the Spirit, nothing will be impossible to us.

Lord, teach us to pray

About forgiving others, Found this on CNN site, What bitterness does to your body.


Feeling bitter interferes with the body's hormonal and immune systems, according to Carsten Wrosch, an associate professor of psychology at Concordia University in Montreal and an author of a chapter in the new book. Studies have shown that bitter, angry people have higher blood pressure and heart rate and are more likely to die of heart disease and other illnesses.


Physiologically, when we feel negatively towards someone, our bodies instinctively prepare to fight that person, which leads to changes such as an increase in blood pressure. "We run hot as our inflammatory system responds to dangers and threats," says Raison, clinical director of the Mind-Body Program at Emory.
Feeling this way in the short term might not be dangerous -- it might even be helpful to fight off an enemy -- but the problem with bitterness is that it goes on and on. When our bodies are constantly primed to fight someone, the increase in blood pressure and in chemicals such as C-reactive protein eventually take a toll on the heart and other parts of the body.
"The data that negative mental states cause heart problems is just stupendous," Raison says. "The data is just as established as smoking, and the size of the effect is the same."

The bible says that , If you forgive, your heavenly Father will also forgive. We must forgive, as we hope to be forgiven.

Re: How to Pray with 7 Tips from the Bible‏

When I saw this one, I said to myself, "This is definitely a "church goer" (OR one who listens to those who do) because what this says about prayer is NOTHING like is told to us by God in the Bible. But, I have heard similar "fair speeches" in lots of church buildings and spouted by "Pastors".

Romans 16:18..."For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches DECEIVE the heart of the simple."

I didn't say that...GOD DID! He was speaking of people spouting doctrines which are contrary to what the Bible really says. READ YOUR BIBLE TO LEARN WHAT IT REALLY SAYS.

If there were a NEW Christian who had just come to be a believer, and they were wondering how to pray, THIS WOULD SCARE THEM OUT OF THEIR WITS!!

Can ANYBODY pray with such expected PERFECTION?? Answer: NOBODY!

As for only "saved" people praying so that God hears, then HOW ON EARTH DID THEY GET SAVED IN THE FIRST PLACE? When I was unsaved, I called to God, and He answered me. That is God listening to EVERYONE.

How about Matthew 28:20...."and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world."

God is not in some faraway place "up there"....He says that He is ALWAYS with us, and he sees and hears everything we do and say. He knows every hair on our heads...Matthew 10:30 (and this probably includes those men with "hair plugs" as well, and those who WISH they had hair).

There is NOTHING that God doesn't know about us already. Prayer is NOT A RITUAL FOR THE RIGHTEOUS....it is ANYONE wanting to talk to God!! Anywhere, anytime...if you even THINK about Him, He hears you!

I "pray" almost all day...every day. God is "in my heart", and I sometimes "think" thoughts to Him, and I KNOW that He hears me. I could give many instances when He actually SHOWS ME that He has heard what I was thinking....but they are so wonderfully personal to me.

He has opened up the "SPIRITUAL" aspects of the Bible to me (I Cor.15:46). This was wonderful!! And I have wanted an outlet to tell others, but I was turned away from doing this by those "Christians" who did't want to hear these truths. They are "blinded" by their own "religion" (denomination), and didn't want to hear anything else.

Then, God sent Steven and his website into my life. Know why hearing the TRUTH is uncomfortable? Because it measures up to God's standards, and it causes distress for those who don't, yet, understand it.

And God says, in Romans 8:28..."And we know that ALL THINGS work together for good TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD, and to them who are the called ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE."

HOW CAN YOU KNOW HIS PURPOSE....OR HIS "WILL" IF YOU DON'T STUDY THE BIBLE FOR YOURSELF. It teaches us "how to pray" as well, and this would be known if people READ IT!!

Good article in the link below. This took me a lot longer to find than usual because most people don't have a clue on "how to pray"...they listen to what is spouted in churches....and regurgitate it in flowery speeches that sound great, but mean very little to those who need to talk to God NOW without meeting "7" criteria before they are heard.


http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Believer%27s%20Corner/miracle_of_prayer.htm



JESUS CHRIST TOLD US A "PATTERN" FOR HOW WE SHOULD PRAY, AND THERE IS NOTHING COMPLICATED IN IT.

[I even use the NIV version here for those who "don't understand" the way God speaks in the KJV...plain, up-to-date English, and easily understood by everybody]


Matthew 6:9-13

New International Version
(NIV)

9 "This, then, is how you should pray:

"'Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,[a]
but deliver us from the evil one.'


My Bible ends with "For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever. Amen."

Footnotes:

Matthew 6:13 The Greek for temptation can also mean testing.
Matthew 6:13 Or from evil; some late manuscripts one, / for yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

*********************

Of course, in the previous verses Jesus explains how NOT to be a hypocrite when you pray. Do it privately, by yourself, and don't brag about what a great "prayer warrior" (which term is not even in the Bible) you are. And don't keep saying the same pattern of speech over, and over...that is memorization and NOT prayer. God knows exactly what you need BEFORE you even ask for it. But God loves to hear you communicate with him, anyway...prayer is telling God that you are thinking of Him and depending on Him to hear your every word.

II Corinthians 11:3.."But I fear; lest by any means, as the SERPENT BEGUILDED EVE through his subtilty, so your minds should be CORRUPTED from the SIMPLICITY that is in Christ."

This is a great example of WHY God put that verse in the Bible!
