will not and cannot be removed from this earth. Heaven is a place for Spirit beings and ‘rapture
to heaven’ believers, of whatever timing; know this, so their answer to that
is: we are ‘changed’ and made immortal at the moment of rapture. This ignores
the plain scripture of Revelation 20:11-15, of how it is only at the Great
White Throne Judgement, that immortality is conferred to those whose names are
found in the Book of Life. The ‘change at the twinkle of an eye‘, in
Corinthians 15, is a prophecy about what happens at the GWT, AFTER the
Re the word ‘escape‘ in Luke 21:36. This is rendered as ‘pass safely through‘ in the Revised English Bible.
Although ‘escape’ is one way of translating the Greek word there, it conflicts with the context of the immediately preceding verse 35, that says what will happen; ‘will come upon everyone the whole world over’. The REB correctly renders Luke 21:34-36. Certainly, verse 36 does not even hint of a rapture to heaven; that has to be imposed onto the text.
Re Revelation 3:10. Being ‘kept from‘, doesn’t mean taken away from. The 3 men in the fiery furnace weren’t taken out of it, they were protected in it. Noah went thru the Flood, people today face persecution; it’s simply illogical to even think that suddenly God will allow His people to ‘escape, away from’, trials and testing, let alone take them all up to heaven before Judgement!
The other aspect of a ‘rapture to heaven’, is what does God really want of His people? We have the Great Commission. Matthew 28:19 When did, or when will, God rescind that?
So what will the
Lord do for His faithful people?
Most will know that I point out how the Lord’s holy people, that is: every faithful Christian, will be gathered into all of the holy Land, Psalm 107, Ezekiel 34:11-16, where they will be the people God always wanted in His Land, being His witnesses, Isaiah 43:10, John 15:27 and His Light to the nations. Isaiah 49:8, Matthew 5:14-15
I have plenty of Biblical proofs of this. It is what will happen, any other belief is deception. :
