Who are the saints?

Are you a saint? I know I am and if you are saved by the blood of Jesus Christ you are too. Over and over again the Bible refers to these saints as those that belong to God, so why do some pick and choose where there sainthood fits in. Let me explain. Some say there is an event coming soon where Jesus will return and Rapture us away before the tribulation here on earth; this event flies in the face of what the Word of God says. Revelation 13 speaks of the beast that causes the whole earth to worship him and causes great tribulation on the earth and kills all that do not worship him. Let’s look specifically at verse 7 it reads “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.” Remember what you said, you’re a saint right? If God is going to Rapture us away before anything bad happens to us and rescue us from the tribulation, why does the Bible warn us to be prepared for something we aren’t even here for? Let’s keep reading on to verse 8 It reads “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” Here we see an exception that all that dwell upon the earth whose names are NOT written in the book of life shall worship the beast, meaning there are those that dwell upon the earth that DO have their names written in the book of life. Why is this exception given at all if those persons who ARE the exception do NOT “dwell upon the earth”? Wouldn’t God just say something like “And those that dwell upon the earth worship the beast”. God is giving us a warning and we MUST be ready for this. The pre-tribulation rapture is false and will not happen and will cause many to lose their faith. “God was wrong” some might say because they believed there pastor over what the Bible tells us.

Lord Jesus, open their eyes.
