Raptured

As they were going along and talking, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire and horses of fire which separated the two of them. And Elijah went up by a whirlwind to heaven. 2 Kings 2:11

When we talk about the “Rapture” doctrine it becomes controversial. Many say the Rapture doctrine is made up or it will never happen, however it has already happened, several times. As its documented in 2 Kings Elijah was “Raptured” to Heaven and never faced death.

The word “Rapture” is the English translation for the Latin word “Rapturo” which simply means “taken up”. Those who argue the word Rapture was never in the Bible, technically are wrong because it was in the Latin translation called the Vulgate.

By faith Enoch was taken up so that he would not see death; AND HE WAS NOT FOUND BECAUSE GOD TOOK HIM UP; for he obtained the witness that before his being taken up he was pleasing to God. Hebrews 11:5

Enoch was another person who was “Raptured” and never faced death. But the conspiracy theorist say Mr. Google says the Rapture was madeup in the 1800’s , wrong again. Its noted in the Book of Genesis that Enoch was “taken up” to Heaven and never faced death

And after He had said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. Acts 1:9

Jesus Christ was “Raptured” or Ascended to Heaven after the 40 days of his Resurrection. Why is it so hard for Christians to believe they will be “Taken Up” into the clouds to meet the Lord?

Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:17

The Apostle Paul taught about a great Rapture that was to come, Christians who have an issue with this doctrine believe it takes away from the death and persecution of current and past Christians, it doesn’t. The Rapture is an event that will kick off the Great Tribulation. It doesn’t mean there currently is no suffer or persecution for Christians.

I think the Rapture is a special event that is going to kick off the greatest Revival the world has never seen. As many , including Orthodox Jews, will come to Christ during the Tribulation and enter his Kingdom forever! Amen!

The Rapture

Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.  1 Thessalonians 4:13-14

Jesus died and rose from the dead, if you are washed in the Blood of The Lamb you will be risen again also. Death has been defeated at the cross. Satan has no power over you unless you submit to him, resist the devil and he will flee from you. Rejoice for you have eternal life thru Jesus Christ!

According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 1 Thessalonians 4:15

The next few scriptures are what we call “The Rapture” when Jesus returns he will resurrect the dead and take his remaining alive followers to heaven. This is the beginning of the “Tribulation” the end of the earth before its restored once again.

For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 1 Thessalonians 4:16

Make no mistake Jesus is coming like a thief in the night. And when he does every eye will see him. And with his command he will resurrect the dead. So mourn no more for your loved ones will be brought back to life for evermore

After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 1 Thessalonians 4:17

The Christians who are still on The Earth will be taken to Heaven and saved from the horrors of the Tribulation. Are you going to be in that group? Are will you be left behind? Make sure your washed by the Blood of Jesus, allow him into your heart and confess he is your Lord and Savior.

 Therefore encourage one another with these words.  1 Thessalonians 4:18

These words are only condemnation for those who reject Jesus, but for Christians these are word to rejoice by. Encourage one another with these word in Jesus Name Amen
