PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: "The Rapture Before the Tribulation?" (Part 4) from Dr. Tim LaHaye

The first reason why I believe the rapture will occur before the Tribulation is because the Lord Himself Promised to Deliver Us.

A clear promise guaranteeing the church's rapture before the Tribulation is found in Revelation 3:10: "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation [the hour of trial], which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth." Though this promise appears in a letter written to the church at Philadelphia, we can be certain it refers to members of the universal church throughout the ages:

1. the passage refers to a future event
2. the church of Philadelphia has long since been destroyed and disbanded
3. this was a letter to all the churches
4. this promise will not be fulfilled until a time of trial that comes upon the whole world -- not just the church at Philadelphia.

In addition, the word "from" in Revelation 3:10 literally means "out of," which is how it is rendered many other times in the Bible. God is saying, "I will keep you out of the wrath to come."
