Pre-Trib Rapture?

Yesterday, I read Luke 17:22-35 and couldn’t help but think, “Wow, that sounds like Jesus told us the Rapture will be Pre-Trib.”

Various Catholic prophecies describe a pre-Tribulation event known as The Warning and/or The Illumination of Conscience.

The prophets say the sky around the world will become black and that Jesus on a cross will be visible in the sky from everywhere in the world. They also say that, at this time, everyone (above the age of reason) will see his or her soul as God sees it and will also experience for a few minutes where they would go if they were to die in that moment.

In Luke 17:22-25, Jesus seems to speak to this event. “[Jesus] said to his disciples, ‘The time is coming when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it. People will tell you, ‘There he is!’ or ‘Here he is!’ Do not go running off after them. For the Son of Man in his day will be like the lightning, which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other.”

In many of Mary’s messages to us, she has strongly urged us to pray, fast, and repent so we will be ready when the day comes. I can’t help but wonder if the Rapture might occur in conjunction with the Warning (aka, Illumination of Conscience). Like, maybe those of us who have heeded the call to personal holiness and are ready on that day will be taken up to Heaven and spared the trials of the Great Tribulation.

It’s a nice thought, right?! But wishes aren’t horses, as they say. However, in the verses right after Jesus uses the phrase “lights up the sky from one end to the other” to describe his return, He speaks of the Rapture.

Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.

It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.

It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed. On that day no one who is on the housetop, with possessions inside, should go down to get them. Likewise, no one in the field should go back for anything. Remember Lot’s wife! Whoever tries to keep their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life will preserve it. I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding grain together; one will be taken and the other left.”

    Gen. George Washington was a prophet. He was given 3 visions by an angel. 2 have come to pass, but not the Black Clouds prophecy. In that, black clouds of troops come from Asia and North Africa, wiping out the cities and the coasts. The nation is coved by them. Then, like ashes, they’re blown away. In the end, perhaps one out of ten people survive. But, the nation is saved if in runs. The people jubilant, laughing, singing psalms and hymns.
    As best as I can see, this was given to us to show why the Americas not mentioned in the Bible. It’s to take us out of the horrors perpetrated on humanity by the antichrist and his followers. walk in His beauty
