The Rapture Doctrine Exposed:

Sir, In your message you are correct about many things. But one thing that I must stake exception to is the Rapture. There will NEVER be a rapture. The Church is not going anywhere. We will be here through it all. I could list scripture after scripture to show you this in the bible. But let's just look at your rapture scripture. One group of verses that does not mention the word rapture at all. 1 Thess. 4:13-18. Most people only say verses 15-17, but if you do that you loose context. Words are important. Wouldn't you agree?? To understand scripture we have to understand what those words mean in the context that they are presented, in dialogue. So context is verses 13-14: "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."

1Th 4:14 "For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him." The "asleep" are the spirits of departed Saints who rest in the Lord upon physical death. But their bodies are "Dead" and lie in the ground awaiting the resurrection of the dead after the Millennial period. Paul was being asked "What happens when you die as a believer?" He then starts his answer in verse 15-16: "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."

1Th 4:16 "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: The Archangel and the Trump are a command to do something. The dead in Christ shall rise first:" OK, so we who are alive shall not prevent those from the grave who have passed on before. Then the "dead" in Christ (Not the asleep) shall rise first. That is because their eternal Spirits have already went to rest with God but their bodies are still in the ground because they are dead. The dead here are those whose bodies have laid in the ground for thousands of years. They are dead so the power of sin has no more power over them. Look at it like this...When you close your eyes, your spirit returns back to God but your body does not. That will not happen until the end after the 1,000 years. (Rev 20 verse 5.) So, what would Jesus rapture?? Your spirit is already with God and your body cannot rise until the resurrection of the dead. So there is no place or time for anyone to fly off into the air. The word "rise" means: to stand up from a horizontal position just like rising from the dead out of a grave. It does NOT mean to float up into the air. Then in verse 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." The words "Caught up" means to be grabbed by great force. As when you would be pulled out of a box in the ground and made to stand upright. The "Clouds" are not the type that float around in the sky and I will show that next. It is the great cloud of witnesses that incorporates the Saints of the Most High. The word "air" is not outer space or heaven. It means the atmosphere that we breathe. The air that surrounds us. That is where the great cloud of witnesses lives. This is also where Christ is right now ready to be revealed at his appearing and where all our Spirts now dwell together already. When he returns, we shall always be in his presence forever. Then in verse 18: "Wherefore comfort one another with these words." Now we see the reason and the purpose for why he spoke the above things. Was to bring comfort to the distraught. You see why we have to read things correctly. One thing that you must understand here is that this coming of the Lord is not a physical one. It is a "Corporate" one. Comprised of the Sons of God (plural). How else could every eye on the earth at the same time see him at his coming?? The "rapture" doctrine was born out of the carnal mind of men who never took the time to study what it all meant. They read it on its surface and said oh well, good enough. But it is a lie and a fantasy. In reality, the meek shall inherit the earth just like Jesus said. That is why he told us to pray like this: "Our Father which art in heaven. Hallowed be thy name... Thy Kingdom come...thy will be done... on earth as it is in heaven." That is the will of the Lord. That we shall inherit the earth and live here in his presence forever. Did not the New Jerusalem come down out of heaven to dwell on earth??? I know these concepts are really foreign to most believers. That is because the Devil sowed deception into the body of Christ where it has grown and grown to the point that everyone believes the lie!! But why would he do that? Because if you really understood what I am saying you would desire to see God and to be changed into his image instead of your own. Wouldn't it be better to be a King and a Priest forever in all his house, rather to be a beggar and a slave?? Or even a servant?? Please, seek truth wherever he may be found, for he said, "I am the way, the truth and the life." God Bless you my Brother. Oh and do not take the vaccine. It is the "Mark of the Beast" and I can prove that.
