The Imminent Rapture

The views expressed here are solely of the author who shall be held accountable. Therefore I tremble, yet I am confident to move forward to proclaim the whole counsel of God.

Behold, I show you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. (1Cor. 15:51-58)

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus, will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 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. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. (1Thess. 4:13-18)

What in these passages point to certain things needing to be fulfilled before the rapture?

A Mill ? Post Mill? Pre Mill?

There are a variety of views and within this variety there are yet more varieties. What is your view? I will declare my view as a Futuristic Pre Mill. Perhaps you have questions about that too. I will respond as best as I can in a spirit of Christian love and respect for you.

Millennialism: Your Future Depends On It

Are you like the old man who, going to the ballpark only once a year, roots for both teams because he can’t afford to loose?

When faced with Millennialism, this old man may answer, “I don’t know much about it, but I’m all for it!” This is called pro-millennialism.

What about the church lady who says, “I don’t care about that stuff it will all pan out in the end.” This is called pan-millennialism.

These two views are becoming ever increasing in popularity, but in my view these are the two laziest views to have. Nearly one third of the Bible is the prophetic Word. The way we view the prophetic Word has a profound impact on the way we view the rest of the Word.

Would these be sound answers when it came to finances?

What about planning a family?

Planting a church?

Organizing a business?

If you are pro-millennial, you say, “I’m all for it.” Or if you are pan-millennial, you say, “It will all pan out in the end.” If the Lord has challenged you a bit, I urge you; don’t get all upset at my harsh sounding words, instead come back as we look at this defining issue.
