In your dispensation, you do not have eternal security like we the Church did. There is no safety net of grace to catch you. Be very aware of that.
“And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.” John 14: 29 (KJV)
Well, we told you it was coming. Perhaps you were a casual reader of this site, but never got really involved, “too many religious nuts” you said. Maybe you had a family member who would plead with you night after night to “get right” with Jesus before His return. “Nah, never happen”, you said, “people been saying that for ever. Nonsense!”. But, it wasn’t nonsense, was it? Turns out the religious nuts were right after all. The Pretribulation Rapture of the Church actually happened. Now we are gone, and you remain. Left behind. I can only imagine the shock – terror – panic – and questions that must be running through your head right now. My heart breaks for you, and that’s why I made this page, to get you through what the Bible calls the time of Jacob’s Trouble, the Great Tribulation, and it’s moments away from starting.
Are you ready for what comes next? Let’s begin at the beginning…
Here’s what just happened.
It was the hope of every Jesus-follower, prior to the Rapture, that one day He would return and “catch away” those who loved and believed in Him. Why did we think this was going to occur? Because the Bible said so, listen:
“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” 1 Thessalonians 4: 16-18 (KJV)
And that’s exactly what just happened, and where we have now gone. Oh, knowing the media as I do, I am sure that there are many attempts to explain it – UFO’s, alien abductions, a harmonic convergence, a government program like Project Blue Beam, FEMA camps, cosmic shift, worm holes, and the list goes on and on. But none of those explanations really satisfy you, do they? I mean, it’s hundreds upon hundreds of millions of people, right? Could any one government, no matter how corrupt, really process that many people in the “blink of an eye”. No, they could not.
You know better than that. In the Book of the Revelation, what happened to John in chapter 4, verses 1 & 2, is what has now happened to all of us who are gone:
“After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.” Revelation 4:1,2 (KJV)
Wild, isn’t it? We all heard the “sound of a trumpet”, and were pulled up in to the clouds to be with the Lord Jesus, Yeshua Ha’Mashiach Himself. That is what has happened, and that is where we are. With Jesus. Take a little moment and let that really, truly, actually, wonderfully sink into your mind. Remember how we always talked about the “blessed hope”? The Rapture was that blessed hope, and here we stand, galaxies apart with a great gulf fixed.
“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;” Titus 2:13 (KJV)
What God has declared will be so, will be so. Amen.
Why you and not me??
Now I know your next question, and you are wondering why, why…why that you got left behind and others did not. “It’s not fair!”, you exclaim. Maybe you were a church goer, maybe you are a “good, moral person” who likes to do good deeds. Maybe you were a Deacon in your church. All these things are good, but unfortunately, not nearly good enough. This is how God sees you, me, all of us humans here on this earth –
“All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.” Isaiah 53: 6 (KJV)
The Bible says that man, of and by himself, can never be and will never be “good enough” to get into the Father’s presence in Heaven. We have all sinned against a just and holy, sinless God. So why, you ask again, if it’s true that all of us are in this condition, did we go up and you stay behind? We are gone now because we put our trust and faith in the the One, the only One who has the true power to forgive sin, and that is Yeshua HaMashiach – Jesus the Messiah – who shed His blood once and for all for the forgiveness of sins.
What can wash away your sin? Nothing, nothing , nothing but the blood of Jesus.
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.” Romans 5: 8-10 (KJV)
And that’s why we are gone and you remain. We were not better than you in any way. You and I had equal sin that needed cleansing and forgiving. But the difference is that we got saved, repented daily, really tried to turn from our sins, and turned to the living Lord whose death and resurrection from the dead paid the sin debt we owed. You were left behind because your debt is still unpaid, but there is good news yet for you. Right now, right in front of the computer screen you are reading this on, you can have the debt for all your sins paid in full. Ready?
You Can Be Saved–Right Now.
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” Romans 10: 9-10 (KJV)
Pray and ask the Lord, “Lord Jesus, be merciful to me a sinner, and save me. I now, with a repentant heart, receive you as my personal Saviour”. Remember that salvation is not a prayer so much as it is a transaction. You have sins that need to be paid for, and Jesus offers you that payment. Give Him your sins, and receive His free gift of salvation.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” Romans 10:13 (KJV)
If you meant it, if you were sincere, if you now know your desperate need for a Saviour and have called upon Him to pay your sin debt, according to the Scripture, then the Bible declares that your sin debt is now paid in full. Just remember that repentance is always the starting point. If you were doing things and living in a way that the Bible forbids, turn from those sins and be cleansed in His shed blood.
Word Of Warning: There is a verse that says because people rejected the truth of the gospel when it was offered them, that God would “send them a strong delusion” that they might “believe a lie.”
“And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 (KJV)
Since we are no longer here, we have no idea how to advise you other than to say this. God is very merciful to all those who call upon Him. David in Psalm 51 received forgiveness when he did not deserve it because he threw himself on God’s mercy.
We would advise you to do the same thing.

Now you know what has happened to us, here is what you can expect to happen on earth during the next 7 years…and it’s not going to be pretty, so be prepared. But if you just received payment for your sins, you can take comfort that no matter how bad things get, your eternal destiny is now secure.
Living for the Lord, Dying for the Truth
“Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.” Jeremiah 30:7 (KJV)
As you have probably figured out by now, the coming time of Jacob’s trouble is not going to be a picnic. In fact, as you can see it’s going to be quite nasty. Before the Rapture, it was pretty easy for bible believers to meet, read and discuss the Bible. But under the rule of Antichrist, it will be outlawed. The fate of a lot of believers during this time you now find yourself in will end in beheading for refusal to take the Mark of the Beast.
“And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. “ Revelation 6: 9-11 (KJV)
Do NOT take the Mark of the Beast
The Antichrist is going to make life very tough for you, and at some point during this time, he will introduce a “mark” that everyone will be required to take if you want to continue buying or selling anything. While we were here on earth, we had many lively debates as to exactly what form that mark would take, but you are about to see that for yourself. The bible says that it will be associated with worship of the Antichrist, and will control all buying and selling. If you refuse to take this mark, as all Jesus followers will, the price you will pay will be death.
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Revelation 13: 16-18 (KJV)
Under NO circumstances, for ANY reason should you accept this mark. For if you do you will be consigned to the fires of Hell for all eternity. If not taking the mark means you can’t buy food, then find some other way to acquire it. If not taking the mark means spending the rest of the time of the Tribulation on the run as a fugitive, then so be it. This mark is the symbol of allegiance with the Devil himself, and EVERY one that accepts will share his fate in Hell. Click here for some more info on the Mark of the Beast.
The Judgements of God are about to be poured out on all the earth
The reason why the Christian Church was removed was because the time of Jacob’s trouble has to do primarily with the nation of Israel and God’s chosen people, the Jews. That’s why it is called the time of JACOB’S trouble. The Bible never called it the Great Tribulation. It is to be their final time of refinement and reclamation. But it also will affect the entire world. This time will not begin because of a nuclear attack or anything that man could bring about. This time starts when Jesus Christ Himself opens the little book:
“And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.” Revelation 5:4,5 (KJV)
You will know that the time of Jacob’s trouble has begun when you see the seals being opened, they will look like this:
“And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine. And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.” Revelation 6:1-8 (KJV)
Study the Bible every day, many times per day. PRAY to God, who gives wisdom liberally. Share the Gospel that the Lord gives to you with as many as you can. Make sure no one you know, saved or unsaved, takes the Mark of the Beast. They will be doomed forever to Hell if they do. No exceptions. In your dispensation, you do not have eternal security like we the Church did. There is no safety net of grace to catch you. Be very aware of that. Doctrinally, your main books will be Matthew, Mark, Luke, Hebrews, and James. Heed this warning, it was written for you:
“For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.” Hebrews 6:4-6 (KJV)
You will be part of the Tribulation Saints, and have a very hard but short road ahead of you. We are watching you from the balcony now, and just know that we are praying for you always during this time of Jacob’s trouble. This verse speaks of us, the redeemed in Heaven, cheering you on during this time. May the Holy Spirit lead you and guide you all the Home.
We will be waiting for you to arrive.
“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1,2 (KJV)
