Revised: 11-11-2013The rapture is a commonly taught doctrine by the churches of today. This doctrine wrongly teaches believers they will be removed from the earth by Christ in either a, Pre-Tribulation rapture, Mid-Tribulation rapture or Post-Tribulation rapture. This belief is leading many Christians right into the arms of Satan who appears at the sixth trumpet claiming to be Christ.

This false idea the church will be “raptured” before the Tribulation has not been taught throughout the history of man. Not until the 1830s when a troubled young lady named Margaret McDonald claimed to have a vision from God showing her the Saints would be removed from the earth before the Tribulation. She admitted the vision seemed evil and dark, yet the preachers of the time took the idea and it quickly spread the world around. We will discover in this study of God’s Word the rapture is another tradition of man which makes void the Word of God.
