Attempting to obey God and follow Jesus Christ our Lord

What is the Rapture

Definition: Rapture

Transport (a believer) from earth to heaven at the Second Coming of Christ.

16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a rousing cry, with a call from one of the ruling angels, and with God’s shofar; those who died united with the Messiah will be the first to rise; 17 then we who are left still alive will be caught up with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and thus we will always be with the Lord.

Many people simply do not believe in the Rapture as it is taught by many, they assume that the only time we will ascend to be with Christ is on our death and resurrection, and yet the Bible clearly states that some that are alive will rise to meet with Jesus on His return. I agree that this meaning of rapture is relativity new, however whatever you call it, if the Bible says that some of those who go to join Christ in the air are still alive, and you believe in the word of the Bible, you must accept that not all will be dead and need to be resurrected on His return.
