229 Comments on “RAPTURE READY? PART II / PRE TRIBULATION / Be Not Deceived / Hugo Talks

  1. obviously it’s a touchy issue
    the Holy Spirit either teaches it to you or He doesn’t
    or maybe it’s a choice, you either decide to believe it or not
    not sure.
    but we are told to encourage one another with it as our blessed hope.
    what hope do non believers have?
    not much.
    better get their jollies in this life bc they are not the sons of God.
    time to get right with God.

  2. I guess, the topic of this article was too sensitive and therefore a cascade of irrelevant comments was activated by actors, seemingly working against each other, in order to divert attention from what is really important.

    • Christ’s saving grace and total sufficiency? That all need Christ? He saved(s) the world.

  3. If the truth of Christianity can be measured by the persecution it attracts then we might consider the same principle when it comes to the timing of the rapture. I find it illuminating that the pre-trib position is the most attacked of all the timings. For a comprehensive summary of the arguments for a pre-trib rapture and the arguments against any other timing consider reading ‘The Misplaced Rapture’ by Richard Snowdon (ISBN 1620207931).

    • For the most accurate accounting of what is to come, try God’s living Word, the only offensive piece of spiritual armor we have. There are many human authors & actors (like Kirk Cameron), some of them persuasive, well educated, rational…but the telephone game of mortals doesn’t measure up to the inspired wisdom of the Most High. For the denominationally inclined (tree of knowledge/gnosticism rather than Tree of Life) among us, try seeking the Spirit of God instead of just gaining knowlege from corporate teachers of the bible. 1 John 2:27. Jesus Himself, the ‘Word,’ will give you spiritual senses for discernment, as our fleshly ones often just get in the way. Revelation 3:17-19. Get into His currency & watch Him change your heart, bless you & reveal His will for your good works. Be ready wearing the white robes He’s designed for you, kicking tables on the way out.

      Appreciate you, Hugo. You’re growing a lot in the Lord & it’s fun to see how your content has shifted in that direction. You did a great job using God’s words to support His intent, not your own. Love to you from the USA!

      • What you say about God’s Word and the Holy Spirit (being the best teachers) is, of course, true. However, where confusion reigns (as it clearly does over the issue of the rapture) then it can be helpful to have mature exposition of the Scriptures. A good example from Scripture is the apostle Paul reiterating to the Thessalonians in his second letter to them that they were not living, as some believed, in the Tribulation. That is to say, they already had his first letter which explained the end time events, but clearly that wasn’t enough. It is interesting to note that the believers of that time were being deliberately deceived by false teachers regarding these end time events; sound familiar? Whilst we should seek God’s Spirit and read His Word to know Him more, there is nothing inherently wrong with using extra-Biblical resources – we just need to be like the Bereans and test everything against the Canon of Scripture. Peace be with you.

    • Christians aren’t persecuted. It’s the world’s most dominant religion, and its adherants have used it to rob, kill and colonise for millenia.

      • You’re joking, right? Unless you are living under a rock you would know that Christians worldwide are being tortured, imprisoned and murdered for their faith. Try starting an open Christian fellowship in Indonesia or China and see how that works out for you. It’s that very persecution that has made it the world’s most dominant faith. As for your accusations of its adherents you are mistaking true Christians who follow in Jesus’ footsteps for those who would use it for their own power and greed. God bless you.

      • go to the Israeli state and tell the antichrist jews about Jesus and see what happens. prison for up to five years – no need to go to china.
        Preaching Jesus to the antichrist Jews in the Israeli state is highly illegal and they bulldoze churches all the time.

      • History Of The Catholic Inquisition-Richard Bennett:

      • Tomas Torquemada was head of the Catholic inquisition in Spain. He tortured and killed many believers. Jewish sources proudly proclaim his Jewish ancestory and his conversion to Catholicism.
        nothing changes much it seems.
        King James Bible book of John 5:16 – And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.
        John 5:18 – Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill (Jesus) him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.
        John 7:1 – After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.

      • @Bob Walker. Yes. Israel can become quite caustic. If you watch other videos from this channel. “Street preaching in Jerusalem, Israel at Jaffa Gate when mob begins to form” Other time’s people are quite receptive. https://youtu.be/tshm9NagJwo?t=4

  4. Since the rapture of the 7th trumpet is applicable to the millennium, I thought I would paste this in below, the writer here highlights a difference between those resurrected at the controversial pre-trib 1st rapture, and those surviving the tribulation, as the Lord returns and declares His Kingdom.

    because when the Lord returns the writer is saying the 2nd rapture is at the end of the millennium.

    That is a question that navigates the minds of many Christians, specially since the idea of an earthly life for the saved during the thousand years reign of Jesus Christ on Earth, is taught in conventional manner by many these days.

    The idea of an earthly presence of Jesus as King is itself disputed by most traditional Christians, attributing this concept a symbolic meaning. That is not the issue of discussion here, but what the Bible says about this period of human life, specially for the saved, if this earthly kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ was literal.


    It is mentioned clearly only in the book of Revelation, chapter 20.

    These verses mention the triumphal return of Jesus Christ as King, to govern the Earth ‘for a thousand years’, in the company of the redeemed. To achieve this, the section also mentions two resurrections. On called the ‘First Resurrection’, where those who died in God’s grace will resurrect transformed into an immortal and glorious state, together with the instant transformation into immortality and glory of those who will be alive at the time of the return of Jesus. (1Corinthians 15:51-53; 1Thessalonians 4:15-17; Revelation 20:4-6).

    There will be also those who did not believed in Jesus but who did not follow the Beast (Antichrist) to the battle against Lord Jesus, who will be kept alive on Earth as a last chance for redemption, proving God to humanity, that each human has time to repent while still is alive.

    (Revelation 16:12-16, 19-21; 20:7-8).


    Since unredeemed humans will be in their natural state, it is understood that they will live normal lives, and die in God’s grace at the end of their cicle, which will be no different to the one now. They will work, trade, reproduce, have families and live normally but in justice under Jesus’s protection. But there will be some who will prove to be not fit for the everlasting kingdom of the Father, and will be discontent with Jesus’s rule, and will either die and be condemned, or will be alive by the end period of this realm, and follow Satan into his last fight against Jesus, to finally suffer defeat and condemnation (Revelation 20:7-9).

    The other lot will be the saved.

    The saved will be conformed by those who had resurrected from death in a glorified state, from the time of Adam until the Parousia of our Lord; and those who will be alive and be glorified in an instant at the same time.


    It has been taught erroneously, that only those who died in the Great Tribulation will reign with Christ, based on the second part of verse 4, where it says:

    “Also, I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.”

    Revelation 20:4

    However, the word καὶ (and), placed before the word τὰς ψυχὰς (the souls), creates a grammatical bridge between the lot of those resurrected to judge, and those who suffered martyrdom under the Beast (Revelation 20:4).

    Having also the clear statement that all saved, martyrs or not, will judge and reign with Jesus (Daniel 7:27; 1Corinthians 6:1-3; 2Timothy 2:12; 1Peter 2:9-10; Revelation 5:9-10; 22:5), we must conclude that all redeemed, from Adam to the last one on Earth, will be resurrected as Kings and Priests, in a glorious, eternal state, to rule and judge with Christ at the time of the Millennium.

    The saved will be all transformed into the glorious condition they will exist for eternity. They will not be natural humans any more. They will have no sexual desire, or need to eat or sleep, or live the life they lived while they were in their natural existence. They will be glorified exalted beings of light, in body and spirit, and thus will remain for eternity (1Thessalonians 4:17). They will rule the Millennial Earth each according to their merit, section and task given; but will not participate of the everyday life of natural humans.


    After the Millennium is completed, Satan will be freed again, and will head the last rebellion of men against God’s perfect sanctity and justice, and they will be defeated. After which the Great Judgement will come.

    The unredeemed will resurrect in what is called the ‘Second Resurrection’, to be judged by Lord Jesus and his Royal Priests, together with the Angels.

    Then this chapter of Creation will have been completed.

    (Revelation 20:10-15)

    • Great bit of research there Graham. Thank you for sharing.

      Very interesting 🤔

      • Revelation chapter 12 verse 5 seems to describe a pre-tribulation to mid-tribulation taking up of a certain group of Christians but definitely not all.

      • The reason pre tribbers see this lie is cause they believe the antichrists are Israel, the woman. Well they are wrong as the church in Christ is the woman, the bride. Galatians 3:29 “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” Abraham Grandfather of Jacob Israel. WHAT IS AN ANTICHRIST? Glad you asked
        1 John 2:22 – Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. (ALL Jews deny Jesus and that makes them antichrist, if they believed in Jesus then they would be CHRISTIANS. IF you do not believe me call any Synagogue and ask them if Jesus is the Messiah.)
        1 John 2:23 – Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
        If Jews do not accept Jesus as messiah, then who is their messiah? SATAN?
        1 Corinthians 16:22 – If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema (CURSED) Maranatha.

        Jesus in bible book Revelation 2:9 – I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. and….
        Jesus in Revelation 3:9 “Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.”

  5. Lol, you all make me laugh with your ‘rapture’ stories… why don’t you use your heads?
    Ig you say your ultimate authority is the bible, then why do you distort it?
    Nowhere in the bible says that Jesus will come to earth to pick up some special sols before the Second Coming.
    Real ‘rapture’ will be on the day Jesus will come back to judge the entire world; then, all those still alive in that day, if saved after judgement, they’ll will join all other souls who have been saved since the beginning of time.
    Hasn’t Jesus said that His kingdom is not from this earth? So why some people think Jesus is going to establish a kingdom on earth for 1000 years?
    Those who believe in a pre-tribulation rapture are satanically deceived!!! One day, these deceived souls unfortunately will have the shock of their lives, when they realize that yes… they’ll have to face tribulations like everybody else.
    This rapture gibberish was fabricated by protestant John Nelson Darby in the 18th century… another protestant fabricating stuff in the name of christianity.

  6. There is a battle going on between the kingdom of heaven and the kingdoms of the earth (kingdom of darkness). ‘Thy will be done ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN’. The war is won, but it is an issue of battles in the meantime, for the purpose of saving or stealing souls. The bible tells us that we are ambassadors of Christ on earth, pleading with people to be reconciled to GOD.
    Historically speaking, before a nation or kingdom declares war on another, it removes its ambassadors from the kingdom.
    Just a thought.

  7. Can Someone explain how Jesus comes with the saints.Surely we must have gone previously to then come back with him.

    • 9 And when he had opened the fifth seal

      The 5th seal is the commencement of Tribulation, so those that die in PEFECTION are the ones under the alter who’s number is completed during tribulation.

      If we examine Revelation 6:9-11 we see there are ALREADY righteous dead in Heaven, but they are told to WAIT until their number is made up. So who and the righteous dead under the alter waiting for? They are waiting for those that will be slain DURING TRIBULATION, those that refuse to worship the antichrist and are killed for it.

      9 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:
      10 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?
      11 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 fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
      Revelation 6:9-11

      Why are they killed during Tribulation?

      9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
      10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
      Revelation 2, 9-10

    • Hi Lucy.

      Jesus comes with the saints who have already died gone before us to heaven. That’s the host the Bible talks about at the Second Coming. We who are alive and remain at the Day of the Lord are caught up into the air to meet Him and them.

      This may not happen for quite some time since the man of sin has not yet been revealed.

  8. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
    4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

    So the man of chaos will oppose and exalt himself above ALL that is CALLED God, OR that is worshipped. As we know the evil people in power on this Earth still continue a system of rule from the Babylonians, nimrod, easter and tammuz. So for the anti-Christ to come to power the current system of Babylonia must be removed.

    5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
    6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
    7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
    8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

    So the anti-Christ will only be revealed once a man is removed out of the way, so who is the man? I suggest this man is the contractual embodiment of the Babylonian system.

    ‘In the seventeenth–century, the Roman Catholic Church succeeded in forming a schism within the Church of the East. Joseph I (1681–1696), who served as the Metropolitan of Amid (modern-day Diyarbakır, Turkey) was won over by Rome and led the Catholic off-shoot of the Church of the East. His successor, Joseph II (1696–1713), was officially bestowed with the symbolic but unmeaning title Patriarch of Babylon. Although this patriarchate was established in the city of Diyarbakır, it was eventually moved to the city of Mosul and finally to Baghdad where it remains to this day. The title Patriarch of Babylon or Patriarch of Babylon of the Chaldeans remained in popular usage until the name Babylon was officially abandoned in August, 2021’

    Iraqi Catholic patriarch elevated to cardinal by Pope Francis

    ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Pope Francis announced in his weekly address that Patriarch Louis Raphael I Sako, the Chaldean Catholic Patriarch of Babylon in Iraq, was among 14 new churchmen to be elevated to cardinal status, a group which will one day name his successor.
    ht tps://www.rudaw.net/english/world/20052018

    ‘Under Caesar’s Sword’

    ‘Patriarch Louis Raphael Sako is the current Chaldean Catholic Patriarch of Babylon, the head of the Chaldean Catholic Church. Ordained a priest on June 1, 1974, he undertook the pastoral service at the Cathedral of Mosul until 1979. Sent to Rome, he attended the Pontifical Oriental Institute, where he received his Ph.D. in Eastern Patristics. He later received a second Ph.D. in History from the University of Paris. Upon returning to Mosul in 1986, he was appointed parish priest of the Parish of Perpetual Help. From 1997 to 2002, he held the office of Rector of the Patriarchal Seminary in Baghdad. He then returned to Mosul, where he took over pastoral care of the Parish of Perpetual Help until the election as Archbishop of Kirkuk on September 27, 2003.

    As archbishop, he has promoted religious tolerance and cooperation along with other religious leaders in Kirkuk. Patriarch Sako has published several articles and books on the Fathers of the Church.’

    AUGUST 05, 2022
    ‘Announcement of Patriarch Sako’s Resignation Causes Concern’

    ‘The announced intention of the Chaldean Patriarch Louis Raphael Sako to present his resignation to the Pope on the day of his 75th birthday is causing a stir. The rule that bishops must resign based on age does not apply to patriarchs of the Eastern Churches.’
    ht tps://fsspx.news/en/news-events/news/announcement-patriarch-sako%E2%80%99s-resignation-causes-concern-75550

    Born July 4th 1948

    Current age: 25/09/22
    74 years 2 months 21 days

    July 4th 2023
    75 years 0 months 0 days

    So why July 4th? well that is know in satanic circles as ‘The Resurrection of Lucifer’ the day when the Sun comes back towards the Earth. So we have the Patriarch of Babylon relinquishing his title on that particular day which also happens to be the day referred to as ‘Resurrection of Lucifer’ the closing of the church of Babylon, ending, contractually that time on Earth?

    UPDATE July 3rd 2023

    So further to this research something interesting has occurred

    ‘President Abdul Latif Rashid’s July 3 decision to rescind a 2013 decree recognizing Sako as the head of the Chaldean Church “in Iraq and the world” and “responsible for the assets of the Church.”

    Note contractual end in Iraq AND THE WORLD.

    ‘Sako suggested that his decision to leave the Iraqi capital would pave the way for what he called the completion of the “game” played by al-Kildani to seize control of the Church’s assets and install his relatives in management positions.’

    “Completion of the game”.

  9. I agree that the pre-tribulation is a dispensationalist hoax.

    Look up the documentary “AFTER The Tribulation” on Youtube. It explains the series of events very clearly.

  10. Let me blow your mind Hugo
    Look at the name of the nation.. Israel I bet you have never seen this break it into syllables Is-Ra-EL? It’s a Question is Ra EL? Ahmen Ra was his name.
