Rapture of the Church

Jesus says He will raise us up again AT THE LAST DAY at the LAST trump (1 Corinthians 15:52) in all of these following verses: John 6:39, 40, 44, 54. In case someone missed it or didn’t understand, Jesus repeated Himself FOUR TIMES. Our first resurrection was when we died to the old man and put on the new (Romans 6:6), so even the LIVING physical vessels will be “raised AGAIN” on the last day. God is a God of the living (Mark 12:27, Luke 20:38) — His children do not die.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 tells us that on the last day, the dead in Christ will rise first, then the righteous living will ascend to meet them and Jesus in the clouds.

But Most Importantly…

A pre-tribulation rapture goes directly against the teachings of Jesus Christ Himself. The false pre-trib doctrine does not teach what the bible actually says. Jesus must remain on His throne in heaven at the right hand of God the Father up until His Second Coming.

The son of perdition appeared in 476 AD (see this article) and the falling away is complete — Jesus could literally return at any moment, just as He said: “Like a thief.” So many are deceived and blinded to this truth.

I want to refer you to a very thorough article written by Brother Vijay Hubert of the Bangalore Church in India which discounts the pre-trib rapture using scripture:

Secret Rapture, with Love from the Vatican

For Further Understanding

It’s impossible to see why the church will not be escape artists without first understanding the spiritual kingdom you are now a part of. Please see this article: The Kingdom of God is Here.

We ARE Israel and our new agape hearts are New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:1-4). See this article: God’s Chosen People.

What will further muddy your understanding is believing the false doctrine of a future “Millennial Reign” for an “Israel” that is based on DNA/genetics. No flesh will glory in the Lord’s presence – 1 Corinthians 1:29. Please read these articles: Part 1 and Part 2.

In Closing

God wants His children to know His Truths so we can be spiritually prepared for every minute of every day while we are here on this sinful earth… and we are in a critical time. When God’s children hear His Truths, they will know it. Pray for wisdom and understanding given by the Holy Spirit which is our gift from God our Father.
