The History of the Rapture
The Futuristic system of interpretation was instigated by the Council of Trent (1545–1563) as a response to the Protestant reformation. Jesuit priests, Francisco Ribera and Robert Bellarmine, over several decades, developed the proposition that everything in Revelation from chapters 4-22 was to come to pass sometime in the future, thereby removing all incriminating interpretations against the Papacy. The Historicist method of interpretation had been building for 1500 years with input, argument, and discussion from hundreds of scholars, scientists, and theologians (most of which were Catholic). However, the Counter-Reformation solution proposed by Ribera and Bellarmine was in direct conflict with Peter's clear statement, "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation." 2 Peter 1:20, according to Froom (1948, Vols. 2, 3)
If they did read the entire Chapter they would learn that this event takes place AFTER the last days trials and tribulations.
This is also the theme in the Book of Revelation, the biblical authority on the End Times.
Revelation 20:4-6 mentions a “First Resurrection” and identifies those involved as “blessed and holy.” The second death (the lake of fire, Revelation 20:14) has no power over these individuals. Both of these events take place After the last days trials and tribulations.
NO RAPTURE FOR THE SAINTS THAT WERE BEHEADED:
"And he (the Anti-Christ Government Beast Leader) causes ALL, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to Receive a Mark IN their Right Hand, or IN their Foreheads: Revelation 13:16
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the Souls of them that were Beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and who had NOT worshiped the Beast, neither his image, Neither had received His Mark upon their Foreheads, or IN their Hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years." Revelation 20:4
AGAIN NO RAPTURE FOR THE SAINTS THAT WERE BEHEADED
