Is The Rapture Mentioned In The Bible?
Is The Rapture Mentioned Clearly In The Bible?
Someone just typed to me that the church rapture is not mentioned in the bible anywhere!!!! I am sorry people, that is NOT true!!!
The rapture of the church is mentioned by JESUS himself in John 6:39 - 6:40 - 6:44 & John 6:54 --- Please study them carefully!!!
The rapture of the church is also mentioned by Martha in John 11:24
Now here is their mistake!! The word rapture itself is not in the bible.... But JESUS, Martha & Paul use other words to explain what we call the rapture in our generation!
JESUS says he will RAISE US UP 4 different times in John chapter 6 ----- That raising us up is what we call the rapture in our generation...
Here are the four scriptures for you. The underlined parts in bold are the rapture -->>
John 6:39 - 39 And this is the will of God, that I should not lose even one of all those he has given me, but that I should raise them up at the last day.
John 6:40 – 40 For it is my Father’s will that all who see his Son and believe in him should have eternal life. I will raise them up at the last day.”
John 6:44 – 44 For no one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them to me, and at the last day I will raise them up.
John 6:54 – 54 But anyone who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise that person at the last day.
There are the four scriptures for you to where JESUS is speaking about raising us up, which in our day, in this generation we call the rapture of the church.
Paul says that we will all be - CAUGHT UP in the air ------ That caught up in the air is what we call the rapture for our generation!
Here is Paul speaking in the bible -->>
1st Thessalonians 4:17 – 17 Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever.
Now there is Paul speaking of the rapture of the church. Yes he does call it being caught up in the clouds, which is what we call our modern day rapture!
Martha tells us in John 11:23-24 that JESUS will raise us up at the last day.... There is Martha using the word raise us up for the rapture!
Here is Martha speaking in the bible →
John 11:23 - Jesus told her, “Your brother will rise again.”
24 “Yes,” Martha said, “he will rise when everyone else rises, at the last day.”
There is Martha using the word – Rise again, or rise to explain the church being caught up in the air with JESUS..... In our modern time we call this – Rapture!
So to make it clear, the English word rapture is not mentioned in the New Testament to explain our rapture, this is correct!!!
Yet JESUS, Martha & Paul all use other words to explain to us when the rapture of the church will happen!
The word rapture is just a English word to explain to people about JESUS raising us up, lifting us up into the sky supernaturally!!!
So although the word - rapture - is not in the new testament, the meanings of how we use the word ARE IN the bible!!!
They are spoken of by JESUS, Martha & Paul, and possibly others too that I am not aware of yet!!! So yes there is a rapture of the church!
So if you are searching for the exact word - rapture .... In the bible, you will not find it!!!!
But you will see JESUS talking about - RAISING US UP ---- many different times in the bible!! That raising us up is our modern rapture!
You will also see Paul talking about this I think multiple times too when he says - we will be CAUGHT UP IN THE AIR!!!
Now come on people, please let us use common sense. When Paul says we will be caught up in the air, obviously this is the rapture!!
So just because the actual word Rapture - Is not in the bible, this does not mean the meaning of the rapture is not talked about constantly
I have NOT done a detailed study on this, but here are 6 locations for you to study where the bible talks about us being raptured up -->>
John 6:39 - John 6:40 - John 6:44 - John 6:54 - John 11:23-24 - 1st Thes 4:17
Praise GOD, have fun studying, have fun learning more hidden truths, have fun UN covering more of the hidden mysteries of GOD!!!!
Now people, if you want to find out when the rapture of the church happens..... Read those 6 scriptures I just gave you slowly!!!!
JESUS, Martha & Paul tell us EXACTLY when the rapture of the church will take place!! Read those 6 scriptures very slowly & B super blessed
Here is a little hint for you -->> Paul tells us that the rapture & the resurrection happen at the same time!!!!
All you gotta do is find out when the resurrection of the church takes place & you will know exactly when the rapture takes place too!!!
JESUS, Paul & Martha are using different words to explain the exact same thing... We call it a - Rapture in our generation!
Even Martha knew there was a rapture, now that is fascinating!!!
How did Martha learn there is a rapture? Did JESUS teach her? Did she study this in the Old Testament? Very fascinating here!!!
Here are 6 scriptures that not only tell us there is a rapture, but WHEN it will take place ->
John 6:39- 6:40 - 6:44 - 6:54 – 11:23-24 and
1st Thessalonians 4:17
In all 6 scriptures the rapture is clearly mentioned, and WHEN IT WILL HAPPEN is clearly mentioned too!!!!
You will also notice that ALL 6 scriptures AGREE with each other on WHEN the rapture will take place...... O praise GOD!!!
So NOW we do NOT have to argue anymore about this. GOD tells us when the rapture will take place in all 6 scriptures and they agreeeeeeee!!!
Here are the 6 scriptures one last time before I go eat lunch -->> John 6:39 - 6:40 - 6:44 - 6:54 - 11:23-24 & 1st Thessalonians 4:17
All 6 scriptures agree that yes there is a rapture, and WHEN the rapture of the church takes place!!!! Read them and be blessed.
So when JESUS, Paul & Martha tell us WHEN the rapture will take place, let us NOT argue anymore please!! Let us trust the bible instead.
Let us trust the bible when it tells us when the rapture will take place so we can stop our petty arguing, our prideful debates!!
O FATHER in heaven, I submit to your bible the best I can today!!!
If your having trouble with any of those 6 scriptures, please contact me right away, praise GOD let us decipher them together!!!
But all 6 scriptures perfectly AGREE with one another!!!
Now we might call - FOOD - a hamburger, pizza, chicken or an apple, but they are all food right people?????
We might call our job working at McDonald, or making pizza's or fixing cars, but they are all jobs!!!
Now the bible has JESUS saying he will raise us up, Martha says he will raise us up, Paul says we will be - Caught up! They are the rapture!
Those are a few different terminologies to explain what we call our modern day rapture! I pray you understand this people.....
Yes be at peace, there is a real rapture of the church, and it is not too far away praise GOD!!!
One last time - These 6 scriptures mention the rapture and WHEN it happens -> John 6:39,40,44,54 - 11:23-24 & 1st Thes 4:17 ---
Praise GOD for you, for you are holy, righteous and much loved if you are in JESUS whom GOD loves!!!!
Did you notice people Martha tells us exactly when the rapture happens??? & JESUS did NOT correct her.... Yes it is true!!!!
Did you notice people when Martha tells us when the rapture will happen agrees perfectly with what JESUS says in John chapter 6?
Yup, they all agree because GOD wrote the bible AND GOD is not schizophrenic!!!
Now read and study those 6 scriptures, find out when the rapture of the church happens & start sharing these truths with other people!!!
Help others to learn the rapture truths, bless others, share these truths with others so we can take down the confusion, the lies of satan!
I forgot people - Mathew chapter 24:30 - Is also clearly the rapture!!!! So you can also use Mathew chapter 24:30 to continue your rapture study!!
