The Rapture – Part 2

Follow with me in this series entitled: The Rapture, to see if indeed the common evangelical teaching; that Christ will secretly rapture His Church, is a true or false teaching. Is Christ coming again with a Secret Rapture, and if He is then what type of Bride is Christ coming back for?

The famous “Go-to” text  for the secret rapture believers and teachers is 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 and probably Revelation 7 and 20. Nevertheless, if one allows Scripture to speak for Scripture (Sola-Scriptura) then you will quickly find out that there is nothing in all of Scripture that supports the Secret Rapture. In fact, if anything, Scripture supports the idea that when Jesus Christ does come again, He is coming audibly and visibly; not making a silent U-turn with His people, but rather will be coming with the announcement of His Arch Angels as 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 indeed speaks of. However, when He does return, He will be coming to pass judgement on the reprobate and the unregenerate.  “Is His Bride genuinely ready” would be the more pertinent question for the Christian believer to be asking? “Let us rejoice and celebrate and give Him the glory. For the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His bride has made herself ready.” (Revelation 19:7)

The Rapture – Part 1

The Rapture – Part 1.

Follow with me in this series entitled: The Rapture, to see if indeed the common evangelical teaching; that Christ will secretly rapture His Church, is a true or false teaching. Is Christ coming again with a Secret Rapture, and if He is then what type of Bride is Christ coming back for? Taking in to consideration all the shenanigans that are taking place in churches today where the church is involved in internal entertainment and egotistic emotionalism rather than the preaching of God’s word to bring change in the hearts of people, my question is: Is this the type of bride Jesus Christ is really coming back for? Churches all over the world are involved in secularism; humanism; emotionalism; false worship – which by the way is really a worship of themselves and other gods rather than God – and all other kinds of perverted things that bring disrepute and disdain to the very name of God! This seems to be the most common practices within most churches of today and yet Christians are persuaded with a deep conviction that this is indeed the way church is meant to be. No longer do most Christians believe that we … Are to go into all the world preaching the Gospel – the good and unadulterated news of Christ Jesus – making disciples of all nations… But rather for them to go into the church playground and make fools of themselves and in turn nauseating the very nations that they are meant to bring change upon through the word of God and through their right Christian living! So let me ask you again; is this genuinely the type of bride that Christ had in mind and is indeed coming back for? My answer to this of course is an unequivocal NO!
