Good morning! Today, let’s tackle the belief in some churches that share that Jesus will come back for the Rapture of the Church after the Tribulation. If He were to do this, Jesus would have to rapture all the saints and kill all the ungodly. Who, then, would be left to populate the earth during the millennium? It makes no sense at all.

The only belief that fits this viewpoint of the timing of the Rapture is when it occurs before the Tribulation. Then, during the Tribulation, souls will come to salvation through the work of the two witnesses and the 144,000. Those who do not die for their faith and remain until Christ’s return to earth will be the ones left to populate the earth.

Those who make it through the tribulation go into the millennium while those who took the mark of the beast are cast into hell.

Rev 19:20  And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Does this excite you, reader? It surely does me! But to the one who is not saved, it is a different story. Friend, it is no coincidence that God has placed you here for such a time as this so that you may be saved.
