Testimonies of Pastor Jonathan Lim, Elder Philip Koh, Ang Fui Gan & Jenny Low (Dated 6 June 2021)
Rev George Ong’s Comments:
Please read the 8 testimonies of those who attended the Great Tribulation & Rapture seminar: Pastor Jonathan Lim, Elder Philip Koh, Ang Fui Gan & Jenny Low who have affirmed the truth of Post-tribulation Rapture and confirmed the falsity of Pre-tribulation Rapture.
Please bear in mind that these testimonies were written several years ago and so their appointments, titles and church attending and pastoring are correct only at the point of writing.
Testimony of Pastor Jonathan Lim
The one simple lesson that I have learnt from George is found in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17.
16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
The most logical and natural explanation as George had said is to interpret V16 that Christ will descend all the way to earth (Post-trib).
If the Pre-tribbers teaching that Christ will make a ‘U-turn’ back to heaven is true, then it ought to be clearly and explicitly stated in the text.
But as George had said that since the text is silent, we have no authority to insert our ideas into the text and wildly presume that Christ will make a U-turn back to heaven.
Secondly, why would God write to us so much about suffering and persecution in the Bible?
Yet, it is so easy for us to conveniently embrace the idea of escaping persecution.
For those of us, who keep hanging on to the false hope that we will escape persecution, ever find ourselves caught in the great tribulation, our world will certainly crumble and we will be devastated.
What George had taught us on Post-tribulation does not spring from his own ideas.
As a Pastor who is theologically trained, I know for a fact that every principle of his teaching on the Post-tribulation doctrine is drawn from the word of God.
He had dug deep and thoroughly searched the Bible to discover the Biblical truth of the Post-tribulation.
May I encourage you that you can do the same too to search out the truth and the truth will set you free from false beliefs.

Testimony of Elder Philip Koh
Dear Rev George, thank you for your insightful teaching on the Rapture and the Great Tribulation.
Your thorough analysis of the scriptures pertaining to the end times leaves no doubt that the Post-tribulation view is the correct interpretation of scriptures.
Your teaching has also conclusively refuted the Pre-tribulation doctrine.
Your teaching has helped me to see things much more clearly about the Rapture issue.
Thanks for your passionate encouragement to live for Jesus whatever the cost.
Thank you for being a voice calling out to the church to prepare for the future.

Testimony of Ang Fui Gan
Pastor George Ong has researched, thought through, written and taught a most definitive lesson on Post-tribulation that bears the gold standard – that will stand up to any test.
Using Matthew 24, 1 Thessalonians 4 & 5 and many other passages of scriptures, George definitively worked out the order of events, backed by many scriptural principles and Bible verses linking them.
I am convinced of the authenticity of his study and teaching.

Testimony of Jenny Low
I attended two sessions of Pastor George Ong’s Seminar on ‘Great Tribulation and Rapture’ conducted on the 15th and 29th of August 2015 and I must say it was time well spent and fruitfully invested.
I recall on Day 1 of the Seminar when Pastor George mentioned that learning is the easy part but unlearning is the difficult part.
Yet, we must be prepared to have the humility to unlearn what was wrongfully learnt.
With an open mindset, I attended the seminar.
I did not go to the seminar with the mindset of Pre-tribulation or Post-tribulation.
After the seminar, I have come to the conclusion that the Post-tribulation Rapture is indisputably and explicitly supported by the scriptures.
This is in complete contrast to the Pre-tribulation doctrine which has no explicit verse or passage that supports it.
Since the Post-tribulation doctrine is irrefutably true, to be logical, whether one says it aloud or not, or whether one admits it or not, Pre-tribulation theology has to be false.
The simple reason is that they are direct opposites of each other.
Having attended the seminar, I see the necessity to go beyond the mere reading of the scriptures.
It is important to read it with an open mind and never assume I have already understood something just because someone has interpreted it in a certain way.
Since the Pre-tribulation theology is held by the majority of the churches, it does not mean that the majority is always right.
I agree with Pastor George when he said that the majority may not always be on the side of truth.
He quoted the example of Noah.
One man Noah (who saved his family) was right and the whole world was wrong and they were destroyed.
Hence, I now truly understand why Pastor George is so confident and convicted to proclaim the truth of the Post-tribulation and the falsity of the Pre-tribulation despite the overwhelming odds because his teaching is solidly based on the scriptures.
To Pastor George, I salute you for taking on this very difficult task even though your speaking engagements have dwindled because of the many churches that have been offended.
Despite your financial survival and livelihood which is at stake, you have unwaveringly pursued and persevered in your call.
But God will surely know how to provide for His obedient servants.
