If you’ve heard the Gospel preached and have not made the decision to follow Christ, then the rapture happens, can you still accept Jesus as your Savior during the Tribulation or is it to late?

First of all, if you have the opportunity to accept Jesus Christ, then you need to take advantage of that opportunity now. If you have that in your heart, or if somebody that you know is being convicted by the Holy Spirit, there’s a gift there, there’s the grace there to receive salvation, then you need to do it. Because God will still accept you after the rapture if you receive Jesus Christ, but the Tribulation that you’ll have to go through will be much greater.

And it will be much more difficult to put your faith in Jesus Christ at that time. Because the opposition and the oppression and the persecution that the world will inflict upon anybody that names the name of Jesus will be much more intense. If you think you’re persecuted now in America, for believing in Jesus and believing the Gospel, you have no idea what it’s going to be like. It’s going to be a hundred times worse when you actually may have to forfeit your life physically for your faith in Jesus Christ after the rapture. So get saved now. Get on the first train. Don’t wait for the second one because it will be much harder to get on that one.

Now that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to be saved at that. However, your heart may harden so much between now and then that you don’t want to accept Jesus Christ at that time and that you put your faith in the Anti-Christ who’s going to deceive many. And many people are going to believe that the Anti-Christ has the answers for them. So tell your friends or your family, or if it’s you, why put yourself in a situation of uncertainty? Better to be certain by receiving Jesus Christ right here right now before the rapture of the Christians takes place in this earth.

What proof is there in the Bible for the rapture?

Well, 1 Thessalonians 4 is referencing the rapture and Enoch being taken up in Genesis represents the rapture, and Noah being caught up with his family and preserved from the destruction that came to the earth is a foreshadowing of the rapture. Those are some of the places that I would direct you to study that subject. And Revelations chapters 1, 2, 3 and 4.
There are many other Scriptures that bring us to the conclusion that there is going to be a rapture. Another one is in 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 or chapter 3 where it talks about the man of lawlessness and how when he that restrains the man of lawlessness is taken away, then the man of lawlessness is going to carry out his power. Well, obviously the man of lawlessness is the antichrist and the only one restraining the antichrist is us, the church, the Christians.

We are the light of the world and the salt of the earth. As long as we remain on this earth, the man of lawlessness cannot fully reveal himself. If you think that the world has problems now, you take the salt out of this earth, you take the light our of this world, this world is going to be an absolute disaster and tragedy continually because the church, the salt and light of the world is not in the earth anymore. Look up those chapters and study them out.

My question is about the 144,000 that is referred to in Revelations. Could you shed a little more light on their purpose?

There are two witnesses in the Book of Revelation. Some say they are Elijah and Moses. These two witnesses come and begin to preach the Gospel, and 144,000 Jewish people are converted to Christianity. Those 144,000 represent the 12 tribes of Israel. Those 144,000 Jews are going to preach the Gospel. They are going to evangelize the world – to Jews and Gentiles alike – until Jesus returns in all of His glory.
