Beyond Today: The Rapture: Who's Left Behind

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
Imagine a time in the near future when Christians going about their daily business are suddenly and secretly removed from the earth. Is that what your Bible teaches? Is the doctrine of the rapture true? No it’s not! The sales of millions of books and movies have popularized this false idea but it’s not biblical. It comes from a misunderstanding of 1 Thessalonians 4:17 which says, “Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air." A Latin version of the bible misinterpreted "shall be caught up" to a word that means "to seize" or "to abduct". But the rapture is not the intent of the word. So an entire doctrine is based on a poor interpretation. The context of this passage tells us that Christians were grieving over the unexpected deaths of their friends and relatives. The Apostle Paul tells them not to worry. Why? Because when Christ returns, He will bring the dead back to life. He'll resurrect them as well. There is a frightening time of world trouble ahead but with the blast of a trumpet and a shout, Jesus will return to set things right. This is no secret rapture. The entire world will see and hear, so we all need to be ready. Christ is coming to resurrect His loyal, obedient people those who keep the commandments of God. They’ll meet the returning Christ as an escort of honor, and return to earth with Him and fulfill Revelation 20 verse 6 to reign and rule with Christ for 1000 years. Are you loyal and obedient to God and his commands? If not, now is the time to repent and change. Don’t get caught up in the idea of a phony secret rapture. That's a false teaching that should be left behind. For Beyond Today, I'm Steve Myers.
