Who are the saints after, the Rapture of the Church?

The dead in Christ have risen. Those who are alive (in Christ) are caught up to meet with Christ in the air. The Church is raptured. The Church is delivered from Great Tribulation. The Church has escaped devastation, Judgment, and the wrath of an angry God. Revelation chapter 5 tells the story.

New Testament saints have joined with Christ (the bridegroom) and the Church (the bride of Christ) are taken up into Heaven. The earth is now taken over and Satan takes authority on the Earth. The Anti-Christ – the man of sin – the son of perdition steps in. The Holy Spirit, the body of Christ the church, and all of its members have gone up. This sanctification through the Spirit is a cutting away or a severing of the Church from an unbelieving world. No longer does the Holy Spirit’s presence hinder or with hold the Anti-Christ from stepping in.

Satan’s Kingdom begins. God’s Judgment and Wrath begins. The seals are opened. The vials are opened. The woes are loosed. Strong delusion within humanity begins. The actual witness of the bride meeting the bridegroom in Heaven has happened. The Jews (an object of God’s plan) rejected their Messiah in the Old Testament. The Jews rejected the Promised Kingdom and their King during the earthly ministry of Christ. Now the Jews have rejected the Raptured Church, the body of Christ visibly. The Church has been taken up. The Church has been sanctified. God’s witness to the Jew (as prophesied) becomes Great Tribulation and Judgment upon Earth like in the days of Noah.

Death, Hell, and fire break loose on the earth for seven years. These events and these occurrences actually happen. This is only a prophetic glimpse of what takes place after the Rapture of the Church. The saints of God are with Christ in Heaven. In marriage, the Bride and Bridegroom have united in the Throneroom.

Over the years many have asked the question about Salvation “after the Rapture of the Church”. One must understand the first four chapters of Revelation deal with Rapture. Revelation chapter five speaks about the Raptured saints in Heaven. Then John goes on to mention how God’s Judgment and wrath are ministered upon the earth after the Church is Raptured. Then Revelation chapter six and seven gives a different picture of the saints of God. These saints are classified as Tribulation Saints. Tribulation Saints are saints of God who have kept faith in Christ to the point of death.

Here is a picture of Tribulation Saints from John’s Revelation.

Rev 7:13-17…And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

These saints are saints of God who turn to Christ during the Great Tribulation…after the Rapture of the Church has already taken place. The Tribulation is primarily recognized as a Jewish Tribulation.

    Better to endure the wrath of humanity than to suffer the wrath of the Almighty. Obedience may come at a cost, but the alternative comes at a consummation. With the former, there is something left. With the latter, it is all consumed.
