Rapture is Biblical

Rapture is Biblical. Rapture is from God. It is part of God’s plan of saving humanity.

There is always an event which marks the end of one dispensation and the start of another dispensation. See the dispensations.

As the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ marked the end of the dispensation of the law and the start of the dispensation of grace so is the rapture. Rapture marks the end of the dispensation of grace and the start of the great tribulation.

Some deny rapture; they deny the caught up of the church.

Rapture is Biblical

Rapture is not a word used in the Bible.

The Bible was first written in Latin and the Latin word used for rapture is ‘rapturo’. The Bible was then translated to Greek and the word used is ‘harpazo’ meaning ‘to seize upon by force’ or ‘to snatch up’. Finally the Bible was translated into English and the word used for rapture is ‘caught up’.

See Bible translation

Therefore the word rapture comes from the word ‘rapturo’, ‘harpazo’ meaning to seize upon by force, to snatch upon by force or caught up.

‘Rapturo’, ‘harpazo’, ‘caught up’, or ‘snatch up’ is in the Bible (See the word used in the Bible version you’re using).

1Thess 4:16-17: 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. 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.

Almost all words in our English Bible are translations from Hebrew, Latin and Greek expressions, and are, therefore, not in the Bible in the form we know them. ‘God’ is a proper and meaningful translation of certain words in the original languages, and ‘Jesus’ is a good translation for us of His name (Yeshua, ‘Joshua’, ‘The Lord Saves’ in Hebrew). In the same way, the English word ‘rapture’ which means ‘to be caught up’ is an excellent translation for the Latin ‘rapturo’, Greek ‘harpazo’.

Since the Bible does not use the word rapture, it does not mean that rapture is untrue; not Biblical. Rapture is Biblical.

Rapture was revealed to me and how it will happen, see vision of rapture to me, and so many times Jesus comes to tell me that He is coming now to catch up (rapture) the church.

Rapture is only for those in Christ.

1 Thess 4:16-17 …and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air.

How do you be in Christ?

1.     Believe and confess Jesus Christ

Rom 10:9: That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thine heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.

2.     Walk in Christ (in righteousness)

There is nothing like ‘once saved always saved’. People fall away from Grace; they get out of Christ.

Gal 5:4: Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; you have fallen from grace.

And people turn away from Jesus Christ.

Gal 1:6 I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel

And not all who start a race finish it and receive a prize.

1Cor 9:24: Know you not that they which run in a race run all, but one receives the prize? So run, that you may obtain.

Unrighteousness leads to damnation.

2 Thess 2:12: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Rom 1:18: For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness

Rom 1:29-32: Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful; who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

1Cor 6:9-10: Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Run away from evil.

1Thess 5:22: Abstain from all appearance of evil.

Rapture is Biblical, real, coming and only for those in Christ.
