BIBLE MOMENTS

 

‘Left behind’ – that’s how some describe ‘the rapture’; but, the Bible knows nothing of it!

 

1) The word ‘rapture’ is nowhere found in the Bible. It is part of the larger teaching of premillennialism, the doctrine that Jesus is coming to establish an earthly kingdom. But, Jesus did NOT come to establish an earthly kingdom (Mk 9:1, Lu 17:20-21, Jn 18:36).

 

2) The Bible teaches that when Jesus returns, the righteous will “meet the Lord in the air” (1 Th 4:16-17) – that great resurrection of both the just and the unjust (Jn 5:28-29)!

 

The rapture may be sensational, but it’s not true!
