Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.
1 CORINTHIANS 15:51-53
In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, l would have told you! I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if l go and prepare a place for you, l will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where l am! (John.14:2-3).
1. WHY WILL THE RAPTURE TAKE PLACE?
2. WHO WILL BE RAPTURE?
1. The Bible made us discovered events surrounding the “RAPTURE” regarding timing and other issues!
Today’s message will show us the reasons, the qualification as well as fallacies surrounding the “RAPTURE”!
Paul’s final argument about the body’s resurrection: GOD’S redeemed people must have newly organized, imperishable bodies to live with Him! Flesh and blood stand for perishable, corrupt, weak, sinful human beings (Luke.24:36-49; 1Corinthians. 15:50).
2. It is true that many of the passages in the New Testament concerning the 2nd coming of the LORD JESUS CHRIST, our Savior, are difficult to deal with. But it is not true that this means that we as Christians can dismiss the doctrine of the LORD JESUS CHRIST second coming!
And things about the resurrection body that were not understood but are now revealed in the book of (Romans.11:25; Corinthians. 2:7; 4:1; 13:2;14:2; 15:51; Ephesians. 3:3-6; Colossians. 1:25-27).
GOD’S purpose to sum up all things in CHRIST JESUS, our Savior (Ephesians. 1:9).
And especially to include both Jews and Gentiles in the New Testament Church as written in the book of (Ephesians. 3:3-6).
GOD’S merciful plan to include the Gentiles in His great Salvation plan should humble them, not fill them with arrogance (1Corinthians.15:25, 51).
Lastly, let us be sober in watchfulness! And always fellowshipping together!
And keeping the unity of the faith in the bond of peace (1Thessalonians.5:6; Hebrews.10:26; Ephesians. 4:3).
I pray that with our spiritual faith! We shall be partaker of the LORD JESUS CHRIST RAPTURES in JESUS CHRIST name our Savior, Amen! Shalom!
