THE RAPTURE QUESTION
Well I won't be around to teach them Liz, Ill be in heaven with King Jesus watching prophecy be fulfilled.
LIZ how do you explain this passage in REV 3:10. CHRIST KEEPS US FROM THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION (THE TRIBULATION PERIOD) NOT THROUGH, WERE DOES THIS FIT IN YOUR END OF TRIBULATION SCRIPTURE.
10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THIS SCRIPTURE. JESUS JUDGES TWO GROUPS OF PEOPLE HERE, AT HIS APPEARING IN THE CLOUDS BEFORE THE 7 YR TREATY AND AT HIS KINGDOM WHEN HE RETURNS TO EARTH BODILY AT THE END OF THE 7 YR TREATY.
2 TIMOTHY 4:2-4
1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
IN THIS VERSE WHEN ALL THE SIGNS ARE BEGINNING TO HAPPEN NOT WHEN THEY ARE FULFILLED THE RAPTURE OCCURS.
28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH TO HEAVEN. MEETING CHRIST IN THE CLOUDS!
1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
1 THESSALONIANS 4:13-18
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
1 CORINTHIANS 15:51-55
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
