A simple question for those who have been sold on the Pre-tribulation Rapture doctrine. Consider this verse:
REV 15:1 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.  And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.  And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.
Here come the 7 vials (Bowls) the final plagues that are directed toward the Kingdom of Antichrist and his followers. This is the “wrath of God”. His wrath is directed at particular people and are a terrible set of judgments. The wrath of God takes place after the Tribulation and can be seen first in Revelation 6:15-17 after the 1260 days and after the sun and moon are darkened which is a sign to the believers that the end of the tribulation has come and the Lord Yeshua is about to appear in the Second coming, the resurrection and to take away the living saints.
Here in Revelation 15 we see the righteous in heaven praising God and singing the song of Moshe. But notice, these saints in Heaven have come out of the Great Tribulation and have gotten victory over the beast Antichrist, the mark of his name. Those who teach Christians that they will never see the Antichrist or the tribulation need to explain how these believers had victory over the Antichrist and the order to take his mark. This happened during the tribulation didn’t it? Yes! How could they have victory over the Antichrist and his system if they were whisked away in a pre-tribulation rapture long before the Tribulation actually started? Impossible!
People who have been fed this false doctrine believe that the very next thing to happen on the prophetic timeline will be the Rapture of the Church. I find this astounding when Yeshua warned us in advance that the Antichrist would come before His (Messiah’s) own return and that we would face hardships, the Great Tribulation and will see the sun and moon darkened before He gathers us to Himself. And here once again we see in Rev 15, those who have had victory over the Antichrist during the tribulation now standing in Heaven. My brothers, the night is far spent, the day is at hand. Rouse yourselves from your slumber and believe God’s word. Divorce yourselves from false teachers and their fairy tale promises.
