THE RAPTURE

Scriptural Primer: THE RAPTURE

The Rapture has been a much-debated concept throughout Church history. What is it exactly? When does it happen? Who does it happen to? Why does it happen? Let’s look at the Scriptural evidence for the Rapture in its context and also see why there is a great deal of evidence to support the pre-Tribulation view.

What Do I Earnestly Desire?

We are to die to our old nature, to “the flesh,” and we are to live in Christ.

The Pre-Tribulation Rapture

The Rapture is the “blessed hope” which Paul mentioned in Titus 2:13. The reason I find it important to defend the pre-Tribulation Rapture doctrine is because of the fact that it has a purifying and motivating effect on our lives.

Hope That Patiently Endures

In a day when evil abounds and the hearts of men are failing them for fear, the Christian is drawn all the more to see a hope beyond anything this world or this temporal life can offer.

The Raptured Bride

Looking at the New Testament Jewish wedding ceremony (like the wedding that Jesus participated in at Cana) can help us understand this Scriptural context for the Rapture.

Are You Ready?

One of the clear Biblical warnings about the Rapture is that it is imminent. It can happen at any time without warning. Therefore one must be prepared and ready for the Rapture before it occurs.
