People believe in a ‘rapture to heaven’, pre, mid, post, anytime; which shows up the lack of Biblical support and the inability of rapture believers to agree on any aspect of that theory.
Where does this idea come from? It isn’t stated anywhere in the Bible and those who promote it must use inferences and assumptions to make verses fit their belief.
But when Jesus Himself tells us that such an idea is impossible, then we know it is just a fable, a false theory, like Paul says; will be prevalent in the latter days. 2 Timothy 4:3-4
John 3:13 No one has gone up to heaven, except the One who came down from there…
John 7:33-34…I am going away to Him who sent Me and where I go, you cannot come.
John 8:21-23 Again He said: Where I go, you cannot come. You belong to this world below, I to the world above….
John 17:15 I do not pray that You take My people out of this world, but to keep them from the evil one.
Revelation 5:10 You have made them priests for our God and they shall reign on earth.
Evidence enough that people never go to heaven. Only their souls, after death, go back to the One who made them, where they await the Great White Throne Judgement at the end of the Millennium. Revelation 20:11-15
The whole theory of a rapture to
heaven contradicts what we are told that the Lord will do for His people;
protection during the terrible times ahead. And for those who do stand firm in
their faith, who call upon His Name when disaster strikes, there is the promise
of tremendous blessings, spiritual and physical to every faithful Christian.
