This sequel to The End Times Passover [Why Christians Will Suffer Great Tribulation] biblically proves why Gods true disciples will experience great tribulation, and will have to remain on earth awaiting the return of Jesus Christ.
Most evangelical Christians believe in The Rapture, they just dont know if its going to be a Pre-Tribulation Rapture, or a Mid or Post Tribulation Rapture. Regardless, many evangelicals believe the Rapture is right around the corner. They believe that Armageddon is knocking at the door. The crisis and battles for territorial rights in the Middle East, the outbreak of Holy Wars and terrorism throughout the world, have most evangelicals convinced the end is near! But, they arent worried because their hopes lie in The Rapture; a unique event where they believe Jesus Christ will return to earth and snatch them secretly up to heaven while all hell breaks loose on earth!
But, what would happen if there wasnt going to be a Rapture? What would happen if all of those stories they have been hearing and reading about not being Left Behind were nothing but sheer lies? Would that concern them? Are they prepared to experience great tribulation?

There is a double-barreled assault these days on the 182-year-old, British-invented end time doctrine labeled the "pretribulation rapture" (or, briefly, the "rapture"), a view that has been obsessively promoted by some leading evangelical writers including John Walvoord, Hal Lindsey, Jerry Falwell, and Tim LaHaye. The first barrel, as you may have already guessed, focuses on the relatively short (and rather strange) history of this novel interpretation. The other barrel deals with the theology behind it - whether it is truly Biblical or whether it rests on ideas that are unBiblical or extra-Biblical. Standing head and shoulders above many other books adopting the theological approach is a fascinating book authored by scholarly prophecy writer Joe Ortiz that has an intriguing title: "Why Christians Will Suffer 'Great Tribulation.' " Hardly a superficial work, this Ortiz production examines the Greek foundation of the New Testament and convincingly reveals the actual meaning of words and phrases over which there has been much disagreement in the past. The "Why" in his book title is fully explained as much as the "Will" is firmly established. If you desire a book that isn't a rewrite of a rewrite of a rewrite - what readers have observed endlessly in pretribulation marketing (I almost said "trafficking") - Joe Ortiz' new and refreshingly different book is waiting for you to pick it up.
