I heard someone say recently, "God's going to take his church out of this world before the tribulation comes..." Oh, really?
"As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the close of the age?” Matthew 24:3
"Then they will deliver you up to triblulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name's sake." Mattew 24:9
"Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. " Matthew 24:34
