I agree in part with what you say here. However, the rapture is not a false doctrine -- but, the timing is certainly disputed.
Nowhere are Christians told that they will escape tribulation. However, in multiple places we are told that we are not under God's wrath.
My personal belief is that we will escape the seven bowls of God's wrath which come at the end of the Great Tribulation.
… and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead—Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath. 1 Thessalonians 1:10
For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 5:9
Many suffer for the name of Jesus today
Hundreds of Christian Nigerian villagers were just killed for their faith.
People are persecuted and Killed daily for their faith.
God does not say you will be saved of an earthly death
God's wrath ? Can you really read that Literally in light of today's world?
God is not necessarily about saving someone from a worldly death because God knows full well
If you are a believer there is something MORE than just this physical existence anyway.
Many can interpret an act of nature as "God' wrath" but is it really ??
How can we tell the difference?
The early writers of the Bible may have interpreted any act of nature as a wrath from God.
You need to re-read what I wrote.
Natural disasters are not necessarily God's wrath.
Christian persecution is not God's wrath -- indeed it is the wrath of the enemy.God's wrath shows up in a few places in the Old Testament.
It shows up again in the seven bowls of wrath from Revelation.
Suffering and persecution are not, by definition, the wrath of God. Those that experience it will definitely know the difference.
Or the early people's interpreted it as such.
God's wrath may never have been a wrath from God but just interpreted by early minds as a wrath of anger from God.
God is a loving God.
God will ALLOW satan to do things during the Tribulation
but the Love of God does not do these things to humans.
God allows the evil but He does not do it himself
He is too holy
You need to go read Revelation 16.Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, “Go, pour out the seven bowls of God’s wrath on the earth.”
The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and ugly, festering sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.
The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead person, and every living thing in the sea died.
The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters say:
“You are just in these judgments, O Holy One, you who are and who were; for they have shed the blood of your holy people and your prophets, and you have given them blood to drink as they deserve.”
The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was allowed to scorch people with fire. They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him.
The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and its kingdom was plunged into darkness. People gnawed their tongues in agony and cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, but they refused to repent of what they had done.
The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East. Then I saw three impure spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are demonic spirits that perform signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, “It is done!” Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake.
