Is the rapture belief wrong?
- BJLv 71 month agoFavourite answer
No such thing as the rapture.
The belief that faithful Christians will be bodily caught up from the earth, suddenly taken out of the world, to be united with the Lord “in the air.” The word “rapture” is understood by some persons, but not by all, to be the meaning of 1 Thessalonians 4:17.
The word “rapture” does not occur in the inspired Scriptures.
If all faithful Christians will be bodily caught up from the earth, suddenly taken out of the world, how would you explain this scripture?
Psalms 37:29 The righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it.
when you die, all good people go to heaven, then if that is so, where do the righteous that live on earth forever come from if all righteous are in heaven.

The word rapture is not in the Bible.
But rapture can be for the 144,000.

Only partly wrong. It's being taught incorrectly. Two men will be herding sheep on a hillside and one will be taken. Two women will be grinding corn and one will be taken. That much is true.

Of course it's wrong. John Nelson Darby invented it in 1830.Source(s): Greek Orthodox Christian

Yes, it is an invention of Protestantism, never heard of until a couple of hundred years ago. Jesus Christ never heard of it, His Apostles never heard of it, and the original Christian Church, to which Jesus promised the fullness of God's truth, never taught such an idea.

The Rapture is real, and the very next event on God's calendar. It should be a comforting doctrine (rather than a frightening prospect) full of hope; God wants us to “encourage each other with these words” [1 Thessalonians 4:18].
The Rapture will involve an instantaneous transformation of our bodies to fit us for eternity. “We know that when Christ appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is” [1 John 3:2]. It is described primarily in [1 Thessalonians 4:13–18] and [1 Corinthians 15:50–54]. God will resurrect all believers who have died, give them glorified bodies, and take them from the earth, along with all living believers.
After the church age, that is, after the church was removed in the Rapture, there will probably be a great wake-up call for all who missed the Rapture but are still salvable in this period.
So for those who are left behind---many of the so-called Christians, I might add, along with the rest will then be less a match for satan than when he proved himself more than a match for man in the beginning -- "If the footmen are too much for us, won’t the odds be more fearful against us when we contend with horses?" [Jeremiah 12:5].
The Bible explains to us exactly what will happen during the reign of the Antichrist. The Book of Daniel unlocks the Book of Revelation and reveals to us the entire plan during his reign. Among the many abominations that follow, the last three and half years will yield more martyrs for Jesus Christ than all afflictions since the death of Abel put together [Revelation 7:9-14].
These will eventually face the ultimate consequences of being beheaded. [Revelation 20:4]. <Under these circumstances, one can expect that beheadings are preceded by merciless torture (a mere preview of the events during the tribulation) apart from all the natural disasters>
If anything, the Church is close to being raptured. You can still be a part of it...

The rapture is true. It is found in a part of 1 Thessalonians chapter 4, among other places. Taught by Paul the apostle and many times throughout the centuries. It wasn't "invented by Darby in the 1800's". Unbelievers seem obsessed with the rapture, and they must be convicted by its truth because they can't stop bringing it up.

Sort of. The pre-Tribulation Rapture is not supported by the scriptures. When Christ comes to save the last temple site defenders, all the righteous, living and dead, shall be caught up to meet him.
