 To escape from all these things

Luk 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
This is another verse that has been misunderstood and used as a pretrib verse, it is certainly not pretrib, as it is speaking to those that are in that place of trouble.
Luk_21:36 WatchG69 ye therefore,G3767 and prayG1189 always,G1722 G3956 G2540 thatG2443 ye may be accounted worthyG2661 to escapeG1628 allG3956 these thingsG5023 that shallG3195 come to pass,G1096 andG2532 to standG2476 beforeG1715 theG3588 SonG5207 of man.G444


agrupnéō; agrupnṓ, fut. agrupnḗsō, from the priv. a (G1), without, and húpnos (G5258), sleep. To abstain totally from sleep, to watch, wake, be awake. Spiritually, to be watchful and attentive to spiritual things

Middle voice of G1210; to beg (as binding oneself), that is, petition: - beseech, pray (to), make request. Compare G4441.

From G2596 and G515; to deem entirely deserving: - (ac-) count worthy.

From G1537 and G5343; to flee out: - escape, flee.

It does not say watch and pray that you may be counted worthy to be taken out before these things happen.

JESUS in the Book of Luke has just been talking about the end time events that (will come to be fulfilled) and He says this to those that will be there at that time, we are to not sleep, we must stay awake, be alert, praying in earnest as one that has bound himself, why?? So that we might be deemed deserving to flee out of or escape from out of all of the things that are happening, and when we flee or escape out of those things we will then be standing before the Son of God.
Jesus does not say that He will remove us before any of these things happen, He says when these things happen, then look up for your redemption draweth nigh.
So when these things happen those that are there are to be aware that their Redemption is coming it is drawing near, IT IS A PROMISE FROM JESUS HIMSELF.

Luk 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
So Jesus is speaking about it happening.

TO ESCAPE is made up of two greek words
ekpheúgō; fut. expheúxomai, from ek (G1537), out,
and pheúgō (G5343), to flee. To flee out of a place, used intrans.
To escape out of a place
TO ESCAPE means to flee from a place that you are in, in that case the believers must be in that place of all those things happening to be able to flee from there.
JESUS said He will be coming in the Cloud when He delivers us from the events that we are in, what a promise, He will bring deliverance at the time that He brings Judgement, I certainly want to be in that Deliverance, I want to be in that Resurrection so that I may be standing with Jesus Christ in my New Immortal Body.

Luk 21:27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
Luk 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Here are some other verses that use exactly the same ESCAPE word in Greek.

Act_16:27 AndG1161 theG3588 keeper of the prisonG1200 awaking out of his sleep,G1096 G1853 andG2532 seeingG1492 theG3588 prisonG5438 doorsG2374 open,G455 he drew outG4685 his sword,G3162 and wouldG3195 have killedG337 himself,G1438 supposingG3543 that theG3588 prisonersG1198 had been fled.G1628

The prisoners were in Jail

Act_19:16 AndG2532 theG3588 manG444 inG1722 whomG3739 theG3588 evilG4190 spiritG4151 wasG2258 leapedG2177 onG1909 them,G846 andG2532 overcameG2634 them,G846 and prevailedG2480 againstG2596 them,G846 so thatG5620 they fledG1628 out ofG1537 thatG1565 houseG3624 nakedG1131 andG2532 wounded.G5135

They escaped from the house that they were in

1Th_5:3 ForG1063 whenG3752 they shall say,G3004 PeaceG1515 andG2532 safety;G803 thenG5119 suddenG160 destructionG3639 cometh uponG2186 them,G846 asG5618 travailG5604 upon a woman with child;G2192 G1722 G1064 andG2532 they shall notG3364 escape.G1628

They shall not escape from the destruction they are in.

Heb_2:3 HowG4459 shall weG2249 escape,G1628 if we neglectG272 so greatG5082 salvation;G4991 whichG3748 at the first beganG2983 G746 to be spokenG2980 byG1223 theG3588 Lord,G2962 andG2532 was confirmedG950 untoG1519 usG2248 byG5259 them that heardG191 him;

Let us all trust in Jesus in all areas of our lives, Jesus delivers us many times from the many difficult and hard places that we are in, sometimes it is not the way we want, but He delivers us in a way that brings Glory and Honour to His Name.
