Msg#1640 The Rapture

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice


The second coming of Christ is in two phases: when he comes FOR his saints in accord with 1Thes 4:16-17 and when he comes WITH his saints in accord with 1Thes 3:18 and of course Revelation 19. The ability to discern the seven year separation between the two is not present in any Roman or Reformed theologian. Both use the ancient allegorical method of Roman Catholic Saint Origen (AD 185-254) to suppose that the Catholic Church has replaced Israel and it is presently living through the tribulation period. Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of those scornful protestants. Keep your delight in the law of the LORD, and it says “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” (1Cor 15:51b-52). The resurrection and life said, “Whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.” This last trump and catching away of believers is portrayed in the NONALLEGORICAL Revelation of Jesus Christ when John “looked, and, behold, a door was open in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter” (Rev 4:1). John was caught away, transported, raptured and did indeed see the things which must be hereafter. Literal things, not allegorical, catholic things. Trust God's Word; he means what he says and he says what he means. The rapture of the church is not some come-lately doctrine of Baptists, it is pure Bible.
