Groups Discussion Sheet for “God Has Spoken” • Hebrews 1:1-2a To Leaders – In these discussion sheets that will be provided for the next three months, feel free to use whatever questions you want.

Reasons to Believe in a Pre-Tribulation Rapture The following is culled from a message titled I Will Keep You, given a few years ago on Revelation 3:10-11. [The exposition of those verses is located at the end of this article] Thirteen Reasons 1 – The Blessed Hope The first reason we believe the Rapture takes place before the Tribulation is because it’s called the Blessed Hope in Titus 2:13. . . . looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, In 1 Thess. 4:18 the Apostle Paul writes this regarding the imminence of the Rapture . . .
