I'm Post-Trib all the way, a couple of things that we have to consider one, the martyred saints during the dark ages better known as the Inquisitions. In all honesty I can't picture strolling past heavens gates telling those saints that our generation was blessed and they were cannon fodder and then let the chips fall where they lay. One text that suggests that we will suffer suffer at the hands of man not God.
Philippians 1: 28 And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God.
29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;
30 Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.
The early church right up to the present day has been tortured slaughtered by the thousands, millions. I know who is behind the brutality but here is neither the time
or the place. The early church had their Caesars they had an audience that couldn't
quite get their fill of the horrors that happened in the Colosseum in Rome. If you haven't heard it yet man is evil from his youth, todays horrendous car pile up the more the merrier
as an example. Back to that Colosseum they had at their disposal various wild life, Lions Tigers Gorillas and Bears waiting to rip them to shreads. Step back and view the carnage there they were Ward, June, Walley and the Beaver out for a Friday nights showing of the trouble starters it twas those Christians.
Before you say it can't happen here, waltz into a country where this brutality is practiced to this day.
