  1. How can the Saints be here for the Tribulation when God said the people of the Trib will run to and fro looking for the Word of God but they couldn't find it? If there were a couple of billion Born Again Christians still left on earth? Surely one of them would tell the people how to be saved.The Trib is the Time of Jacob's (Israel's) Trouble, not the churches trouble.
    There's no reason for the church to be here during the Trib.It's the time Jesus gives Israel another chance to be saved. She rejected her Messiah the first chance and Jesus turned and offered the Gentiles His salvation in this Age of Grace.That is ending at the beginning of the Trib .The Bible says Jesus will hide the Jews during the last half of it. Why doesn't it say Jesus will hide His Bride? He would hide the Jews and leave His Bride on the battlefield to be slaughtered? Never.
    The story of Noah is a pic of the pre Trib Rapture. God closed the door of the ark and kept Noah and his righteous family safe during the Trib. The ark rose up above the earth and stayed there during the destruction below and they didn't come back down to earth until the destruction was over.

  2. as a body of believers, we have been given ordinances done when the church is gathered together.

    we are to participate in communion, we are to wash feet, we are to lay by in store as we have been prospered and we are to baptize new believers.

    Heb 10:25  Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

    how can we observe the ordinances if we sit at home and do not assemble ourselves in a local body of believers?

    if there is false teaching we are to make it known, we will be persecuted for it but that is our lot.

    1Co 11:19  For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.

    we cannot keep the ordinances of the church as individuals sitting at home, to have a part in the ordinances we must take part in a local church.

    Mat 5:13  Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. 

    Mat 5:14  Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 

    Mat 5:15  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 

    Mat 5:16  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

    1Co 16:2  Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come. 

    Mat 28:19  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
    Mat 28:20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

    Mar 16:15  And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
    Mar 16:16  He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

    Act 2:41  Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

    Act 8:12  But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.

    Act 8:36  And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?
    Act 8:37  And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
    Act 8:38  And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.

    Mat 26:26  And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.
    Mat 26:27  And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
    Mat 26:28  For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
    Mat 26:29  But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.

    Mar 14:22  And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body. 

    Mar 14:23  And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it. 

    Mar 14:24  And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many. 

    Mar 14:25  Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.

    Luk 22:14  And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.
    Luk 22:15  And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:
    Luk 22:16  For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.
    Luk 22:17  And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:
    Luk 22:18  For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.
    Luk 22:19  And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.
    Luk 22:20  Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

    Joh 13:1  Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.
    Joh 13:2  And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him; 

    Joh 13:3  Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;
    Joh 13:4  He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.
    Joh 13:5  After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. 

    Joh 13:6  Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? 

    Joh 13:7  Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.
    Joh 13:8  Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.
    Joh 13:9  Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. 

    Joh 13:10  Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.
    Joh 13:11  For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean. 

    Joh 13:12  So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?
    Joh 13:13  Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.
    Joh 13:14  If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.
    Joh 13:15  For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
    Joh 13:16  Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
    Joh 13:17  If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.

    1Co 11:23  For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
    1Co 11:24  And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
    1Co 11:25  After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
    1Co 11:26  For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.
    1Co 11:27  Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
    1Co 11:28  But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
    1Co 11:29  For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
    1Co 11:30  For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
