#17 is the one that I find the most persuasive: “It is characteristic of divine dealing to deliver believers before a divine judgment is inflicted on the world as illustrated in the deliverance of Noah, Lot, Rahab, etc. (2 Peter 2:5-9).”
The angels had to physically drag Lot from Sodom before God’s judgement on the city could commence. God shut the door to the ark before the first drop of rain fell. The Tribulation is a period of God’s judgement on the World. As Christians, our judgement has already been dealt with, in Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. There is no need for us to endure God’s judgement; there is no need for the Church to be “purified”. Our purification has already been accomplished at Calvary. I believe that God will remove the Church from the World before the Tribulation begins.
I would like to add that, if we believe that God broke His promises to Israel, then there’s really no reason to think He wouldn’t break His promises to us.
