A SCIENTIST SAYS, “EARTH CRACKING UP”, WHAT WILL THE DOMINIONIST OR POSTMILLENIALIST DO? IN TWO DAYS THIS WEEK THERE WERE 39 EARTHQUAKES BEGINNING WITH AN 8.6 IN INDONESIA. This earth does not belong to the Pagans as the Earth Day crowd respresents, it’s the Lords and after He redeems it, we will inherit it for eternity. With that settled let’s get on with the joy of His soon appearing. Let me list for you the Nine Absolutes that prove the Rapture before the Great Tribulation:

1. It Fits Biblical Precedence Of God’s Judgment For The Wicked! David was bold in his proclamation, “I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.” (Psalm 37:25) To suggest that God the Father will deny 6000 years of history and judge the church in the same horrible hour as the wicked doesn’t fit His character. The nature of the tribulation period (the final judgment of man’s rebellion) makes that suggestion even less likely.

When the antediluvian world reached it’s zenith of debauchery and the Father was ready to pour out His wrath, Noah found grace (unmerited favor) in His eyes. Noah’s family was saved while the rest of mankind was completely obliterated. (The law of first mention makes this event a powerful factor.)

Sodom and Gomorrah had descended into the mire of sexual perversion. There is a good possibility that a disease like AIDS was proliferating and God acted to stop the plague. The very geography of the landscape had to be cleansed by fire and destruction. Homosexuality was the prevailing life style. Yet the angel said to Lot, “Haste, thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing until thou be come thither.” (Genesis 19:22)

2. The Church Is To Be Judged Before The Wicked World Is Judged! Rather than positioning the church in the tribulation judgment, the Biblical warning is that judgment begins at the house of God. Privilege is always a factor in determining God’s judgment. He said,“…For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall much be required, and to whom men have committed much of him they will ask the more.” (St. Luke 12:48b)

Apostle Peter, clearly distinguishing himself as a New Testament leader, warned, “For the time has come that judgment must begin at the house of God: (Remember it was the Jewish nation who was first to be judged in the First Testament) and if it first begin at us (the Second Testament believers,) what shall the end be of them that obey not the Gospel of God?” (I Peter 4:17) There is no excuse for anti-Semitism in the Christian church. Our judgment is of a different nature but clearly precedes that of both the Jewish and the God-denying and blaspheming world.

3. The Bride Of Christ Is To Be Presented Unto Himself In An Exclusive Ceremony Separated From All Other End-Time Events! Redemption is much, much more than fire insurance. The root and foundation of God’s love for the world and sending His only begotten Son is a desire to have a family. The family unit is the closest thing on earth to the heart of God; His very nature. The invitation to salvation is an invitation to a marriage feast and establishes a family relationship. Worship in it’s truest sense is a celebration of that family relationship with our spiritual priest; we celebrate His love until we can celebrate His presence.

4. His Absolute Promise To Keep His Faithful Bride From The Hour of Tribulation! The Holy Scripture deals effectively with His assurance that this awful hour is not designed for His chosen. The prophet Isaiah described the final episodes with minute detail: “Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. Come, my people enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be over past. For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth shall no more cover her slain.” (Isaiah 26:19-21)

In the first verse of this quote he identified the Resurrection. Next, he calls for the chosen bride to enter with Him into her chambers, (an appropriate nuptial place as she prepares for her presentation to the Groom,) to be securely hidden away for a short moment until the wrath or rage of God is finished. The third verse of this text pictures the going forth of God’s righteous judgment to finish sin, disclose hidden life styles, and to give an equal response from God’s holiness to man’s evil actions.

5. The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Is The Only Reasonable Explanation Of a Time When Some Are Taken And Some Are Left!

6. Then He Warns Of A Specific Day Coming Unawares Of Which Only Those Watching Shall Escape!

7. The Law Of The Farmer Demands That The Harvest Be Gathered Before The Winter Begins!

8. The Holy Scripture Affirms Emphatically That The Antichrist Cannot Be Revealed Until A Restraining Force Is Removed!

9. Finally; The Lord’s Absolute Promise To Catch Away His Chosen To Meet Him In The Air!

Conclusion! I believe in honoring all men as commanded by the Word. Those who know and serve Jesus Christ are my brothers and sisters. While we fulfill the above in Christian love, I contend that the Rapture must transpire before the tribulation can begin. The gathering storm has shaken the faith of many. The fire of expectancy, of watching and waiting, of looking for His appearing, has gone out of many lives.

Some are looking to build a kingdom here, while others are looking for great tribulations and planning how not to take the mark. I believe that the bride should look for His appearing, occupy His spiritual and invisible kingdom, and expect to be gone when the great “deceiver” is having one final fling. “Look up and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (St. Luke 21:28b)

  1. Hi,

    Please send me materials on the pre-trib rapture and your proofs.
    I am also VERY interested in anything you have pertaining to the
    antediluvian period, especially concerning Noah & the Nephilim.

    Thank you! And God Bless!

  2. Pastor Joseph – magnificent discourse!

    In a few words you have presented the clear evidence for a Pretribulation Rapture and incorporated into it such an uplifting message for all of us who saddened as we are watching our world, church, and civilization fall apart.

    It must have been much the same way Jesus’ followers felt when he was carried off in the night and ultimately condemned and crucified. They must have felt that all the miracles, all the teachings, all the hope for a new kingdom to come was now lost. Added to the despair was the cold reality that they were now hunted men and women.
    What were those conversations they must have had in that locked room were they gathered waiting for the knock on the door?

    And then on that unforgettable Sunday, imagine their joy when they discovered that God had mightily changed their world, and ours, forever?

    This is something all believers have just up ahead!

  3. Good message. Well presented and Scripturally factual.

    The judgment the Church will occur at the time of the Rapture. The judgment will distinguish those in the “Church” who are ready, versus those who are not truly ready. Again Jesus told us to be ready – not waste time stockpiling the goodies of this world and chase down every false wind of doctrine. I believe this is the distinction and the basis for this judgment.

    Still, God knows who are His, and we may be in for a bit of a surprise when we get there as to who made it – and who didn’t. Good day.

  4. Blessed message brother Chambers. Earthquakes are increasing, Volcanos, Tornados, Hail and scorching heat from the Sun. I think each day will grow worse. We must be Ready to Meet the LORD in the Air. It is my prayer that those who are seeking to know the truth of the Rapture, draw close to the LORD and all doubts will soon disappear.

  5. Wanted to add one scripture I was reminded of in my spirit about Judging the Righteous and the Unrighteous. Both are judged, but never together as you said:

    “The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.” Isaiah 57:1


    Dear Joe Chamber,

    Just what do you mean when you say the JUDGEMENT BEGINS AT THE HOUSE OF GOD? Are you taking about a NAZI STYLE HOLOCAUST IN AMERICA BEFORE THE RAPTURE?


    Dear Joe Chambers,

    Just what to you mean when you say the JUDGEMENT MUST FIRST BEGIN AT THE HOUSE (CHURCH) OF GOD? Are you taking about a NAZI STYLE HOLOCAUST COMMING TO AMERICA in which Christians and Jews are MASSACRED BEFORE THE RAPTURE? Are you taking about the NATURAL DISASTERS ESPECIALLY TORNADOES THAT RIPPED THROUGH THE “BIBLE BELT” and destroyed the houses and businesses and churches of the Christians along with the homes of unbelievers? OR THIS ECONOMIC DEPRESSION WHICH PUT A LOT OF CHRISTIANS AND NON-BELIEVERS OUT OF WORK AND CAUSING THEM TO LOSE THEIR HOMES TO FORECLOSURES? Or is it that Christians are afflicted with major illnesses such as cancers, heart disease, kidney disease, lung cancer / emphesema for Christians that smoke? Or is the JUDGEMENT BEGIN AT THE HOUSE OF GOD HAPPENS RIGHT AFTER THE RAPTURE WHERE WE ALL STAND AT THE BEMA JUDGEMENT SEAT OF CHRIST TO GIVE ACCOUNT OF HOW WE LIVED OUT LIVES ON EARTH?

    I remember reading in one of your earlier articles how earthquakes rage out of control at a faster and faster pace, and stronger and stronger. Areas that have not had earthquakes will get them too. If the Chattahoochee fault line in Georgia between Cobb County and Fulton count near the Chattahoochee river RATTLES UP LIKE SAN FRANCISCO OF 1906, IT WOULD SURELY KNOCK ATLANTA’S NY STYLE SKY-SCRAPERS TO THE GROUND. AND THOSE RICKETY HIGH-RAISED ROAD BRIDGES AT INTERCHANGES SUCH AS SPAGETTI-JUNCTION AND OTHER HIGH-RAISED INTERCHANGE BRIDGES (UP TO 100FT IN HEIGHT) WOULD ALL BE KNOCKED DOWN.

    You also memtioned that the SUN COULD DARKEN AND THE MOON TURN RED just before the rapture. I remember seeing Lunar eclipses before. To the eye the moon looks black or brown. But to the amplified cameras the moon looks SCARLET RED. When I saw that picture, it made the moon look like a piece of FRUIT. I thought it looked like an APPLE. My mother thought it looked like a NECTARINE. The bible taLks about the moon looking BLOOD (SCARLET) RED. The That will not be an eclipse wher only amplified cameras can see red in the moon. IN REVELATION THE MOON WILL BE VISIBLY SCARLET RED. If the Moon LOOKS LIKE AN APPLE OR A NECTARINE, then you will know the Rapture is very close. Even if you could shrink the SCARLET MOON down to the size of an APPLE, YOU COULD NOT EAT IT BECAUSE IT IS MADE OF ROCK AND WOULD SURELY BUST YOUR TEETH, sending you to the dentist. IF THE MOON LOOKS LIKE AN APPLE OR A NECTARINE, YOU KNOW THE END IS NEAR. Pretty soon even the big earthquakes are comming to your area. A few month ago Washington DC got a mid-level earthquake and that damaged the roof of the Washington Monument. Also the NEEDLE TOPS WERE KNOCKED OF THE TOP OF STEEPLE OF THE NATIONAL CATHEDRAL.

  8. Why would Yahweh waste His time in marking the 144000 seeing their going to be rapture out before the Great Tribulation. For the Jews are made up of 2 tribes. The Church is made up of the 10 lost tribes of Israel that became gentiles pagan worshipers. Still keeping their pagan celebration of easter and christmas. Many times Jesus said I come for the lost sheep of Israel. You people need to get some real teachings from; page with many links,,

  9. Lawrence Prabhakar Williams

    What an strong reassurance of a message of our coming Redemption; this Biblical-centric message is of pivotal importance and what a reaffirmation Pastor that you had given in the Conclusion

    “….Some are looking to build a kingdom here, while others are looking for great tribulations and planning how not to take the mark. I believe that the bride should look for His appearing, occupy His spiritual and invisible kingdom, and expect to be gone when the great “deceiver” is having one final fling. “Look up and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (St. Luke 21:28b)….”

    What a way to complete the essay, God Bless Pastor, Please continue this most invaluable work of heralding the Soon Coming of our Lord even as we echo the same to our numerous friends and kin

    Maranatha !

  10. Brother Joseph, From the day The Body of Christ was born, right up to, (I would say 50 to 100 years ago) those Saint’s down through the centuries are worthy to escape the tribulation, the countless millions who were tortured and killed for The Lord Jesus Christ Name, Saint’s worthy of the rapture.

    These last fifty years or so, there are hardly any christian’s today who could be identified with those Saint’s of yesteryear. The Body of Christ today is almost unrecodnizable to those Saint’s.

    There are more carnal christian’s in church today than you can possibly imagine, the corrupt bibles that are in use, the teaching courses that are anti to Christ taught in churches. Pastors that are the servants of satan in our pulpits, demonic music played every sunday, now we are allowing the filth of the world to marry in church. The list goes on and on.

    How in the world, how in God’s name can we possibly identify ourselves today with those Saint’s of the past? What is so awful about the condition of the church today, is, we have allowed it to take place. (Ichabod is written over the church doors, “The Glory Has Departed”)

    All of us, I mean, All of us, need to Repent, before The Lord Jesus Christ says usto us all, I have some what against thee, thou hast hast left thy first love. Thou art neither hot nor cold but lukewarm I will spue thee out of my mouth.

    Do not let the emotion of calling yourself a christian and going to church influnce you into believing you will be taken in the Rapture. “God is not going to be mocked”

  11. Amen, Pastor Chambers! We love and pray for you. Keep sharing the truth of the blessed hope!!!

  12. Melvin is correct. We need to be careful not to make the ‘rapture’ our ‘golden calf’
    as if the Kingdom is all about escaping suffering. It’s almost the opposite.. and whether the rapture is a man-made notion or not ,, the righteous will STILL not be forsaken. At least a third of the earth’s inhabitants will survive God’s wrath to usher in the Sabbath Millennium. These people will live long lives, being taught God’s ways – not man’s religions, for 1,000 years.
    Those who dwell inside New Jerusalem during that time are only the ones who do not love their life more.. the saints .. martyrs who have been sacrificed down through the ages as firstfruits.
    – both the desciples and the ancient prophets will occupy the Holy City as Supreme Court Judges for a thousand year restoration period.
    This generation should not be focused on escape of suffering or saving their skin.
    Peter’s last words before being crucified: “I have long awaited this happy day”

  13. The 144,000 (jewish converts) aren’t marked until after the rapture Melvin. Study your Bible.
    Thanks for another truthful message Pastor !

  14. The bible says that the wrath of God will come after the sixth seal and this is sometime past the mid point of the last seven. Everything leading up to that point doesn’t seem to be God’s terrible wrath on mankind but a revolt of people towards God and His people. What if the God comes and takes His church in the rapture just before He unleashes His wrath on those left behind? I believe this is worthy of consideration so we can prepare our self’s if this is the case. Don’t you? I figure it is better to hope for the best and prepare for the worst especially when the timing of the rapture isn’t as cut and dry as you may think. Just my thoughts. I don’t understand why people are so set against having an open mind to the raptures timing. It almost seems like a pride issue to me but maybe I’m wrong as it’s just the impression I get.
    I would appreciate your comments on this subject.
    God’s peace, Tim

  15. Note to Melvin:

    Please read Alan Franklin’s excellent post regarding the tribes of Israel and the fact that a remnant of them other than Judah and Benjamin did survive just as he said. In fact, genetic testing is now going on to rediscover the descendants of Aaron from the tribe of Levi in an effort to reconstitute the priesthood and Levite helpers for a rebuilt temple.

    Consider, too, that the Hebrews are descended from Noah’s son Shem. His two other sons produced Gentiles, as did the descendants of Abraham’s son Ishmael (Arabs, who have an Egyptian link through Hagar, Ishmael’s mother) and those of Jacob’s brother Esau (Edomites or Idumeans). Abraham’s nephew Lot was the ancestor of the Moabites. There may be more of which I am unaware, but you get the idea I hope.

    The 144,000 are truly Hebrews composed of the descendants of Jacob’s sons. The original tribes, though dispersed, are still with us today.

  16. Brother Joseph, I need your analysis of “Pretrib Rapture Secrets” which I found on Google. Lord bless you all. Mariah
