LEFT BEHIND

BIBLICAL RAPTURE

Welcome back ... Glad you chose to take this spiritual journey with me.

Make sure you check the biblical rapture scriptures that are being shared in this study in your Bible as to confirm the TRUTH.

Many Christians are under the impression that ALL believers will be taken up to Heaven in what is known as the rapture BEFORE the Great Tribulation.

Now this is a beautiful ideology.

The problem is ...

The Bible says something completely different.

Now, do NOT get me wrong ...

There IS a rapture and there are MANY believers who will be in this rapture.

Since the central focus of this particular biblical rapture study is on those who are going to be left behind, you can find the answers to any questions that you have about the rapture at:

BE SURE TO RETURN AFTER YOU CHECK OUT THE BIBLICAL RAPTURE STUDY

If you have read the Biblical Rapture study you are now aware that the Bible reveals that there are in fact two raptures and that even though you may be a believer, you may still be left behind when one rapture occurs or even after the second rapture. Another important fact to know is that when you become a Christian, that doesn't mean that you will automatically be taken to Heaven in the rapture.

We don't get to choose if we are in this rapture or not ...

ONLY ... God is the judge of that.

So ... Again I want to stress that this Biblical Rapture study is NOT saying you will not be in the rapture.

This study is simply sharing that which the Bible reveals and that is that NOT ALL Christians will be in a rapture.

Consider it like this ... Most purchase life insurance for the body. They pay premiums on something that may never occur. Consider this preparation as your eternal life insurance policy for the soul where you PREPARE ... For the just in case.

If not for you ...

For those who will be ... LEFT BEHIND.

There are some interesting things that you might want to know about those who will be in this rapture, just in case you are not one of them. First of all, if you're a Christian ... If you believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died for your sins, was resurrected, and you accept Him as your Savior, but you are not taken in a rapture, that doesn't mean that you're doomed or that God does not love you. 

GOD FORBID !!!

It could simply mean that God has a different plan or calling for you. It doesn't necessarily mean that you will be put through fire either ... That all depends on GOD'S WILL. But, just maybe God will choose to leave you here on earth during and/or after the End Times for other reasons, which you'll discover in this study.

So sit back, relax and enjoy the new found wisdom that is about to be revealed to you FROM THE BIBLE. Now, in case you did not catch this or decided not to check out the rapture study, I want to share a TRUTH with you about those who are taken up in a rapture ...  

Many of you may have seen the movie series entitled "Left Behind" which depicts the author's interpretation of what things may be like during the End Times. While it offers many interesting situations to consider, there are many things presented in films that are not biblically sound. Its always important that you confirm things in scripture.

Then ... Interpretation is the most important aspect of seeking TRUTH and without discernment from the Holy Spirit ... You can be deceived.

In the "Left Behind" series, when the rapture occurs, those who are left behind discover the clothing of those caught up in the rapture neatly folded wherever they happened to be when the rapture occurred. This suggests that their PHYSICAL flesh was carried away naked to Heaven.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm ... Is this Scripturally sound?

Let us take a look and see if scripture is in harmony with this.

When Jesus was describing the rapture to His disciples in the Olivet Discourse, He said:

Luke 17:35-37
Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the
other left. And they answered and said unto Him, Where, Lord? And He said unto them ...
Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.

But, there is another scripture in the book of Matthew describing the same rapture event which uses a different word in the place of the word "body" ...

Matthew 24:28
For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

This clearly suggests that there will be carcasses (dead bodies) left on earth, of the people who are taken up to Heaven when the rapture occurs.

This reveals that the theory shared in the movie series "Left Behind" which suggests that when the rapture occurs that the Christians who are taken, will have their clothing neatly folded and their flesh will be taken to Heaven as being ... Incorrect.

Let us look at what the Bible says will occur to Christians when they pass from this realm to the next ...

Our BODY returns to dust:

Genesis 3:19
For dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

Our SPIRIT returns to God:

Ecclesiastes 12:7
Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

When the righteous dies, their SOUL goes to ABRAHAMíS BOSOM:

Luke 16:22
And it came to pass that the beggar died and was carried by the angels into Abraham's Bosom.

IF one does the math on all scripture that has just been shared,

It is OBVIOUS that at the rapture ...

THE BODY STAYS BEHIND

Obviously it isn't the flesh that is taken to Heaven, but rather our soul is that which is taken.

The mortal bodies are gone and those who are in the rapture receive an immortal body.

1 Corinthians 15:51-54
Behold, I shew 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. 

HERE IS WISDOM

It is important to understand that the flesh does not rise to Heaven because the people (and in particular, antichrist) that are here on earth will have to explain to those on earth what has just occurred when the rapture happens. IF there are missing physical bodies, they would have to suggest one thing, and if there are dead bodies, they would have to suggest another.

If there are dead bodies as we discovered is what will occur, they would probably be able to blame a plague or some natural disaster because there will be many OTHER events occurring at this time on earth which they could use to explain away the dead bodies as not to admit that it was the rapture as to deceive those on earth who do not know the TRUTH.

At the rapture, the chosen souls meet the Lord in the air and go straight to Heaven
as discussed in the rapture study.

I'd like to take you back to Prepare 4 End Times study now, and ask you to check out pages 3 and 4. 

When you return, we'll continue with page 3 of this Left behind study and find out what happens ...

To those LEFT BEHIND.
