A friend of mine recently wrote this thoughtful update on his life 1 and where he is at now that ten years has passed since he moved away and faded from the Witnesses.
She was sent to a concentration camp and endured great hardships, but she survived.
In Corrie Ten Boom wrote the letter shown below to warn Christians about the false teaching of the pre-tribulation rapture. This teaching is very popular in America, even though there is no scriptural basis for it.
Many believers have bought into it because they have heard it taught by their pastor or by other Christian leaders, but we must study the scriptures for ourselves. God has promised to deliver His people from the wrath of God, which will be poured out near the end of the seven-year tribulation period.
However, there is a big difference between the persecution of Christians and the wrath of God. God never promised us that we would be protected from persecution. In fact, He promised us we would be persecuted just as Jesus was also persecuted.
The pre-tribulation rapture is a dangerous teaching because it will cause believers to be confused and even abandon their faith when they see tremendous persecution coming upon them during the tribulation.
Many will fall away at that time, which is also foretold in the Bible. It is called the apostasy. The world is deathly ill. The Great Physician has already signed the death certificate. Yet there is still a great work for Christians to do.

As far as I knew, Betsy and I were the only two representatives of Heaven in that room. Sometimes I get frightened as I read the Bible, and as I look in this world and see all of the tribulation and persecution promised by the Bible coming true.
Now I can tell you, though, if you too are afraid, that I have just read the last pages. Not that the world will survive — but that we shall be overcomers in the midst of a dying world.Unlike most editing & proofreading services, we edit for everything: grammar, spelling, punctuation, idea flow, sentence structure, & more.
