(HELPFUL INTEL FOR THOSE LEFT BEHIND)
To our beloved family and friends,
and everyone living on earth
during the Tribulation period:
Why did millions of people suddenly vanish from the earth? That was the Rapture event predicted in the Holy Bible. Jesus Christ called up all His true believers (His Church) to join Him in heaven.1 Since you missed the Rapture, you are now living in Tribulation times. So we want to offer you helpful intel—as well as hope, warnings, and advice.
RAPTURE AND TRIBULATION INTEL
The seven-year Tribulation is a time of dreadful disasters as God judges the world, bringing an end to the rebellion of humanity.2
During this period, numerous people will come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.3 These post-Rapture believers will still suffer some of the Tribulation distress and devastation, but they will receive God’s gift of eternal salvation.
The Bible reveals that during the Tribulation period, our righteous God will: (a) pour out His judgments on an unbelieving world, (b) bring Israel back to her Messiah,4 and (c) extend His saving grace to all who choose to believe. Consider this timeline of events:
A SPIRITUAL BATTLE FOR SOULS
There is a battle for the destiny of people’s souls between Satan’s kingdom of darkness and God’s kingdom of light. It began when our original ancestors disobeyed God, causing the human race to “fall” (Genesis 3).11 Then death, sickness, and sin (wrongdoings) entered the world, separating us from holy God.12 We were all doomed, headed for eternal destruction.
However, the Bible gives us amazing Good News!13
According to God’s eternal plan, and out of deep love for us, Jesus Christ took the penalty for the sins of all humanity. He shed His blood on a Roman cross in AD 33. On the third day after His death and burial, Jesus miraculously rose to life.14 Now, even during the Tribulation, He offers everyone His free gift of salvation. If you receive it, your destiny will be heaven, not the real place called hell.15
“This is how God loved the world: He gave His one
and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him
will not perish but have eternal life [in heaven].”16
HOPE, WARNINGS, AND ADVICE
- Gain hope – There’s still time to receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior. (See a suggested prayer below.) But don’t delay,17 for your opportunity may be short due to apocalyptic destructions. If you become a believer, you will experience persecution (such as imprisonment or even execution)18 but no spiritual harm. You will enjoy a relationship with Jesus and the everlasting glories of God’s kingdom.
- Heed biblical warnings – Do not take the “mark of the beast” required to buy or sell in the worldwide economic system (Revelation chapters 10 to 13). Doing so is an act of rebellion against God. It means you worship the Antichrist and Satan, and your fate will be sealed.19 Also, beware of Satan’s lies and deceptions; e.g., counterfeiting God’s miracles.20
- Get informed – Find a Bible and read it, starting with the books of John and Revelation (see footnote 21). The focus of the entire Bible is Jesus Christ—God in human flesh.22 He speaks to us primarily when we read Scripture. The Bible is fully trustworthy and grounded in history. Abundant evidence has proven it to be God’s written Word to humanity.23
JESUS’ EVERLASTING LOVE
Jesus loves you so much that He sacrificed His life for you! When He walked up the hill at Calvary, He had you on His heart. He chose to die on the cross rather than live without you. Are you ready to receive Him and start a relationship with Him? Even now, the Savior says to you:
“I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone
who believes in Me will live, even after dying.”24
You can become a believer right now by praying a heartfelt prayer such as the one below. After you do, find other believers to pray and study the Bible with. Tell people about Jesus. Stand strong in the face of adversity and persecution, and He will reward you richly!25
A SALVATION PRAYER
Dear Jesus, thank You for Your amazing love. I believe You died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead to give me eternal life with You. Please be my personal Lord and Savior and forgive me for my sins. And fill me with the Holy Spirit’s power so I can live for You. Amen.
