The Church Papers

One of the frequent questions asked about the end times is:
"Will the church go through the great tribulation?"

I am not going to deal at length with that question now, but we have seen in many passages of Scripture,
and especially in the seven letters to the churches of Revelation, several reasons to say,
"No, the true church of Jesus Christ will not go through the great tribulation."

Those who truly know the Lord and who are alive when this period comes,
will be caught up to be with him before the tribulation begins.

Yet all the church today is not necessarily included in that promise.
All of Christendom is not the true church, in other words.

The Man in Charge of the Universe

"The teaching of the New Testament is that now, at this very moment, there is a Man in heaven appearing in the presence of God for us. He is as certainly a man as was Adam or Moses or Paul; he is a man glorified, but his glorification did not de-humanize him. Today he is a real man, of the race of mankind, bearing our lineaments and dimensions, a visible and audible man, whom any other man would recognize instantly as one of us.

"But more than this, he is the heir of all things, Lord of all lords, head of the church, firstborn of the new creation. He is the way to God, the life of the believer, the hope of Israel, and the high priest of every true worshiper. He holds the keys of death and hell, and stands as advocate and surety for everyone who believes on him in truth. Salvation comes not by accepting the finished work, or deciding for Christ; it comes by believing on the Lord Jesus Christ, the whole, living, victorious Lord who, as God and man, fought our fight and won it, accepted our debt as his own and paid it, took our sins and died under them, and rose again to set us free. This is the true Christ; nothing less will do." (A.W. Tozer)
