This is DAY NINE of the daily devotional.
I am releasing a 50 day daily devotional about the end-times as revealed in Scripture. Along with the text, I will be providing a video where I cover the text of the day, and @verbal-d will be providing an audio version of it. That way, whether you want to read, watch, or listen, you'll be able to enjoy this study as you wish.
The plan is to release this devotional over the next 50 consecutive days, but life may "get in the way." We will do our best, but please be patient with me if I fall behind.

DAY 9 - PROMISES
There are two main verses that pretribulationists will cite as proof texts to support their belief that true believers will be raptured from the earth prior to “The Tribulation.”
“For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,” (1 Thessalonians 5:9)
“Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.” (Revelation 3:10)
These promises are specific enough for us to draw some conclusions.
Point #1: The Bible does promise believers exemption from God’s wrath.
Point #2: The “Seventieth Week of Daniel” is not a period of God’s end-time wrath.
Point #3: “The Tribulation” is a man-made idea with no Scriptural basis and contradicts what the Bible actually reveals.
Point #4: “The Tribulation” is a false concept.
Point #5: Believers will not be exposed to God’s wrath, including the “Day of the Lord.”
Point #6: Believers are not promised that they will be removed from earth prior to the “Seventieth Week of Daniel.”
If anyone is really interested, I did post the entire volume through an alt account over a year ago. I did so as an experiment to see how hard it would be for a new user to get noticed on steemit, so I didn't let anyone now that I was doing it. You can click here to a post that has links to the entire 50 days of this devotional if you really want to read ahead. That information has always been available there since I first posted it. It is not the purpose of this series to just copy all of my previous work, but instead to transform it into some new outlets by releasing it in an audio and video format, to broaden the reach that this work has.
Again, though I will certainly never claim to know it all, I do believe that many are being lead astray by some popular beliefs. I hope that this project will be able to help many others understand the end-times more accurately. Thanks!
