We look at one of the best illustrations in your King James Bible of the Church Age Pretribulation Rapture, and no, Paul didn’t write it!
One of the best time-wasting arguments you can have with other Christians is on whether or not the Rapture is a pretribulation or post-tribulation one. I say that this is a time waster, and it surely is, because scripture presents both a pre and post-tribulation catching away of the saints, albeit two different groups of saints. But it doesn’t end there. The first rapture in your King James Bible is in Genesis, kicking off the days of Noah, and the last one is at the end of the time of Jacob’s trouble.
“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 (KJB)
On this episode of Rightly Dividing, God has seen fit on more than one occasion to catch away or ‘catch up’ those saints in any dispensation that He, for His own reasons, wanted to have Home with Himself. The first saint to experience this was Enoch, and in an amazing coincidence it happened right before the start of the days of Noah in Genesis 5. Enoch is a type picture of the Church Age saint who never dies, and is caught up before the start of the 7-year Tribulation period. On this episode of Rightly Dividing, we look at all the raptures in the Bible including what in my opinion is the best illustration of the Church Age rapture, and no, Paul didn’t write it!

These programs would not be possible without your generous support. Listen to just a few of the recent comments we have gotten:
- I thanked God for sending to your website in 2015 , IÂ live in the South of France near Nice and let me tell you here there isn’t any Bible Believing church at all, the sad reality of France is that is full of freemasons and muslims.Â You came to me at the time IÂ was going to take my own life because of my job. You’re anointed person and I pray for you, familyÂ andÂ ministry because you’re a blessing to all of us. May God bless you always. I know I’ll meet you in heaven one day. Lots of Love from your sister in Christ, Paula.
- “Hi Geoffrey and staff, Today is my one year anniversary that I got saved on your podcast!Â I am now a KJB only, I threw away my other two versions I had.Â I was shocked to learn of the differences and how the new versions twist the words of God, and dilute the message at best. Thank you for the fabulous bibleÂ education and fire for the Lord.Â I donate on your website throughout the year. Thanks for all that you do.” Donna
- “I have been reading on NTEB for about 5 years and listening as I can to your services.Â If I could list the encouragement, the doctrines, the awareness of what is coming (our blessed hope) but also the last days culture in which I live that you have taught me, this email wouldnâ€t fit in this letter. Because of you, I am a stronger more equipped soldier for Jesus Christ. Thank you sir for you, your ministry in my life. Faithful to the end because He lives in me.â€ Ruthie Dennis
- “My name is Carl N from Mumbai, India. My wife Andrea and I have been ardent listeners of your Bible Study and news update podcasts from the very start of the lockdown last year. In fact we make it a point to share these links with our family and friends… many times getting into trouble, as the truth upsets people. We cannot even begin to tell you how this has changed our lives and walk with the Lord. Thank you so much for what youâ€ve been doing for the Kingdom!! Weâ€ve even switched Bible translations to the KJV. For the last month or so, youâ€ve been speaking about making end times Bible study materials available. This got us really excited, as weâ€re eager to use these for our weekly house church group.” Carl N – Mumbai, India
- “I listen to your podcasts often. Very enlightening and I’ve learned a lot. I’m Catholic and followed the Holy Bible throughout my life however, since listening to your podcasts, I’ve learned much more. I recently sent NTEB a small donation. I’d like to do so again in the future. I’ve also signed up for NTEB chatroom. Anyways, I have a downloaded version of KJB on my computer and I follow your Bible Study with my pdf version KJB. You have offered to send out printed version of KJB if requested. If not too much trouble, when you or your staff get the opportunity please send me a copy.” Kevin W – Frankfurt, Germany
- Just wanted to let you know that your ministry is producing fruit. After listening to the studies and church on NTEB, I was motivated to write witness letters along with NTEB gospel tracks to friends from my hometown who I know are not saved. I sent two of the letters to former Catholic priests of mine….I attached the response from him urging me to read the book “Prove It!.” My wife and I have been placing your gospel tracks in different places we visit. This coming Sunday, I am hosting my first Bible study in my house with some people in our neighborhood. Tomorrow evening I have been given a chance to teach the lesson to our youth church group (our church is very Laodicean), and I am going to talk to the youth on end times. Thank you so much for your ministry and encouraging us to get something done for Jesus while we still can! Thomas BÂ
- â€œThe sole purpose of this email to you is to let you know how much we have been blessed by your amazing ministry/website. â€˜Weâ€ is my wife and I, in our early forties, 3 kids, professing, churchgoing, bible believing Christians in The Netherlands.Â Since two months, I listen to your bible studies on Sunday evening, and since this week also to your prophecy podcast. I listen to them in the archives, because of the 6 hour time difference. The shofar and the blessing at 0:30 into the study never fails to make tears in my eyes. We are praying for you, we are praying for your voice, that it lasts in these incredible busy times for you. Listening to your podcasts, you seem to do it effortlessly, talking, scanning the chatbox for questions, diving into the texts, from Genesis to Revelation and everything in between, I love it when you realize after 1:30h into the study, actually a lot more subjects need to be addressed! Thank you for all your work and effort, you are doing an amazing job. Although it all seems effortlessly, I know it is notâ€¦Our faith is strengthened by your work and we are able to testify in a better way to the people around us!â€ Wouter D. van der Wiel – Netherlands
- “Wanted to send you encouragement and thank you for all you are doing!! Iâ€ve been reading from this website for about 5 years and I’ve been on this at least 10 times a day. Itâ€s the most honest prophecy website in history. And you have ministered to me greatly. This lockdown has been amazing as God gets us unto himself and smooths out the paths for us. I was reading devotional from Kenneth Copeland and during that time you had really hit That ministries hard. I was not Word Faith but I was feeding off his teaching. During this time I have removed Kenneth Copeland I wanted to thank you for your exposure of his ministry. Holy Spirit is truly the leader of all truths. The bible study on Bill Gates was tremendous. And I had the same check in my spirit as you did. Heâ€s the guy that gonna lead this one world revolution Amazing times we live in. I’m super excited and living in total victory and peace. Once again thank you for the time you put in your reward in heaven will truly be great. Looking forward to this coming week. My prayer tonight is this â€¦Father send Your Son!! DG
- “Thank you oh so much for sound teaching. I am so thankful and blessed for clicking on your channel. I have been on your Facebook page since 2011 and never subscribed to you-tube channel until today. I loved the live recording of singing, what a delight to hear the joy of the Lord in the voices of the congregation. So wonderful to hear the part about Luke 12:36, that has made my eyebrows furrow when I read and therefore I have always steadfast to not leaning on my own understanding. May God continue to bless you, your family friends and loved ones. All Glory be to Jesus, my Saviour Redeemer and King, Amen.” Susan Anderson
- “Loved this teaching! Presented in a clear contextual manner that was easy to follow along. You connected the dots for me that had previously brought so much confusion, namely the 4th seal covenant, the 5th seal tribulation saints, and the 6th seal 2nd Coming of Christ AFTER the wedding of the Body/Bride of Christ IN HEAVEN. Wow, after 41 years since my being born again by the Holy Spirit in to the Body of Christ, I finally have the answers to end the confusion. What joy and peace has flooded my heart! Thank you for this encouraging teaching of the Word.” SB
- “I am from Sri Lanka and listen to the radio Bible study every week.” Nihal Perera
Nothing thrills my soul like teaching the word of God, it is what the Lord called me to do 29 years ago, and Now The End Begins is the vehicle in which I am able to do it. How exciting it is to be able to teach the Bible to tens of thousands of people per year. Like I told you with the first post of 2020, I have dedicated myself now full-time to NTEB, and it is only through your generous support that such a thing is possible.

- “Jesus. I am now 64 years old and never in all the years Iâ€ve been a Christian was I able to grow in the Lord as much as I have in the last past year. All because of our blessed brotherâ€s work Geoffrey Grider who as the bravery of standing fast forward without fear of claiming the truth of God by the power of his love in Jesus Christ. May God bless you abundantly to the end my dear brother… ROMANS: 8: 36,37,38” Mireille Anderson
- “I met you at the car dealership earlier this year. We spoke briefly, then you handed me a card and told me to check out the website. You left. A few minutes later, you returned to tell me not to forget to look up the website. I told you…â€ I already did. I already subscribed.â€ In that short time we spoke, I experienced from you…a total stranger…peace, joy, kindness, gentleness, compassion, and love. I am convinced that God sent you to share the Good News that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. For that, and for the work you are doing for the Kingdom of God, I say…Thank you and God Bless You.” Sonia Merced
- “I really enjoy the emails and Bible studies! I havenâ€t found a church and enjoy your services very much! Be blessed brother!” Marcia Mann
- “You and your organization are on the front lines in the Battle For Truth…. current events, end times, and trying to awaken a sleeping laodicean Church. Thank you brother for fighting for us and all your teaching and insight God bless…” Daniel Cartrette
- â€œIâ€m a KJB believer. Weâ€re so close to being â€œcaught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord. I have many lost family who donâ€t want the truth, including my husband & son. Iâ€ve been banned from seeing my grandsons since I comforted the 4 1/2 year old with sharing Jesus loving the little children & telling him about the one who created him last he stayed overnight March 3rd. He was so excited to hear about Jesus! His dad (my son) was angry that I told him & wants me to apologize. I never will do so. If my own family wonâ€t hear, I know thereâ€s others searching for the truth. My heart grieves for all the lost who will spend eternity in hell if they reject the Lord Jesus Christ, the expectant hope of the world. He is not willing that any should perish. God bless your ministry, Geoffrey! (I continue to pass out your tracts & youâ€re on my prayer list!)â€ LouAnn Benham
- â€œLove the Sunday night bible study. I want to support someone who has the passion for the lost like Geoffrey does and rightly divides the word of God. God bless you.â€ Teresa Carey
- â€œI give because not many news outlets are brave enough or Godly enough to tell these stories from a Christianâ€s point of view. I see stories here that will not be seen anywhere else.â€ William Grayshaw
