I've always believed that the world would end in great tribulation just as Jesus described in Matthew chapter 24. I just happen to believe that we will go through the tribulation. Some people say we can't go through it because of the scripture that says we have not been appointed to wrath, but history bears out that God has let his church be martyred and has let his children pass through persecution and tribulation. That's why I think the rapture is a bad teaching - because it sets people up to think they must not endure suffering. I don't see how anyone can read the NT and conclude that suffering is NOT for the saints.

Hi Heart.

Where do most people believe will be taken by the RAPTURE? Jupiter, Mars, wormwood or where exactly?

One crazy person said he will be whisked/raptured away on WORMWOOD when it arrives. He really believes it!!

John,
Of those I've met who believe in the pre-tribulation rapture, they believe God is going to suddenly take all true believers out of this world and take them to heaven before his full wrath is unleashed on everyone who remains. I've never heard of anyone who thought they were going to other planets. Wormwood is a negative 'toxic' term (I thought) -- never heard of anyone saying it was a place or a planet.
