Can you biblically support your stand on the Pre-Trib Rapture?

“For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ” (Philippians 3:20).

“...waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” (1st Corinthians 1:7b).

“ turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come” (1st Thessalonians 1:9b-10).

“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:13).

“So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation” (Hebrews 9:28).

“ yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord...” (Luke 12:36).

The word “wait” implies waiting for Jesus. Scripture does not instruct us to wait for the Antichrist, the beginning of the Great Tribulation, the time of pre-wrath or the Battle of Armageddon. The Lord plainly said that He would come at a time “...when ye think not.” These few words expose the Mid-Trib, Pre-Wrath and Post-Tribulation positions as false teachings in a very simple manner.
