The Belief in the Post-Tribulation Theory

If you're a post-tribulationist then you cannot believe in that precious doctrine that tells us that Jesus can come at any moment. That we are to watch, be ready, looking for that Blessed Hope. These verses mean nothing to you because you believe that certain events have to take place first. There are a lot of people who never thought about it in this way, but it's true. Stop and think. This group of people, believing in this theory of post-tribulation, will have missed all the events that happen in Heaven such as: the crowning of rewards, that event in Revelation 11: 15, where Nathan Meyer says, "Jesus is crowned King of kings, and Lord of lords." Those of you who believe in this theory will miss the wedding in Heaven when we are wedded to Christ. You would miss the Marriage Supper of the Lamb because you would still be on earth at this point. As soon as the marriage supper is over we return with Jesus in the Revelation/Second Coming. (See Rev. 19: 11 - 21, Zech. 14: 1 - 9.). So as I said in the last paragraph of the previous topic ("The Belief in the Mid-Tribulation Theory"), any one who believes in the Post-Tribulation Theory cannot believe in the doctrine of The Imminent Return of Christ because they're going to be looking for the 7 seals, 7 trumpet judgments, the 7 vials, and The War Against Jerusalem to happen first. Then and only then can the people join Jesus in the Revelation/Second Coming. If you hold to this theory then you cannot believe in the Rapture because the Rapture happens first and this theory would leave no room for it to take place. The Bible tells us that no man knows the day or the hour (Matt. 24: 36). The Believers are to know the times and the seasons (signs, etc...), but not the day or hour, and not the year either. (Here are some Scriptures dealing with the Rapture. Rev. 4: 1, 22: 12, John 11: 25 - 26, 14: 1 - 3, 4 - 6, I Cor. 15: 51 - 54, I Thes. 4: 13 - 15, 16 - 17, 18, I Thes. 1: 10, 5: 6, Matt. 24: 42 - 44, 25: 1 - 13, II Tim. 4: 8, I Pet. 5: 4, Titus 2: 13, II Thes. 2: 1 - 2, II Thes. 3: 5, and I Cor. 1: 7.).
