(2.) We aim at God's glory, when we are content that God's will should take place, though it may cross ours. Lord, I am content to be a loser, if thou be a gainer; to have less health, if I have more grace, and thou more glory. Let it be food or bitter medicine if thou gives it me. Lord, I desire that which may be most for thy glory. Our blessed Saviour said, "not as I will, but as thou wilt." Matt. 26:39. If God might have more glory by his sufferings, he was content to suffer. John 12:28, "Father, glorify thy name."
The pre-tribulation position advocates that the rapture will occur before the beginning of a seven-year tribulation period, while the second coming will occur at the end of it. Pre-tribulationists often describe the rapture as Jesus coming for the church and the second coming as Jesus coming with the church. Pre-tribulation educators and preachers include Jimmy Swaggart , J. Dwight Pentecost , Tim LaHaye , J. Vernon McGee , Perry Stone, Chuck Smith , Hal Lindsey , Jack Van Impe , Chuck Missler , Grant Jeffrey , Thomas Ice , David Jeremiah , John F. MacArthur , and John Hagee .  While many pre-tribulationists are also dispensationalists, not all pre-tribulationists are dispensationalists.
