The Rapture

It Is Written, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18, for the Lord himself will descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of an Archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with  them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.
Many people do not believe in the rapture, because the word rapture is not in the Bible. The words caught up are used instead. 2 Corinthians 12:4, speaking of Paul, he was caught up into paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.
The Bible tells of Noah and his family escaping the flood, Lot and his family escaping Sodom. God rescued His people. Even the Hebrews living in Egypt during the time of Moses, were untouched by the plagues.
God rescues His people one way or another. Many people today consider the idea of the rapture, as escapism and nonsense. Seems like a lack of trust in God.
Many scholars today agree that the rapture will happen. They do however disagree as to when, whether it is before tribulation, during tribulation, or at the end of tribulation.
If you are a believer in Jesus as your personal Savior, you will be okay no matter when the rapture occurs. Read the Word and see for yourself. God bless you and your family. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
