The Rapture is NOT in the Bible

Everyone knows the rapture is in the Bible. Or, is it? Despite it being popularized and commercialized by Christian books, movies and even Hollywood, Skye Jethani makes the case that the Rapture is not actually in the Bible - no, not even in Revelation!


Skye looks at the passages often used to support the Rapture, Matthew 24 and 1 Thessalonians 4 and unpacks what they actually reveal about Christ’s return and why it's time for the Rapture to be left behind.

You have just witnessed a man twisting scripture to fit his theology. He didn't even abide by his own point to "read the scripture within it's context."


Here he quotes Matt 24:40-41 to prove those "raptured or taken away" are those taken by God's wrath and those "left behind" are God's people (like Noah).


However, what does Matt. 24:30-31 say about those "taken"?


”“Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect…

Perhaps the gathering is referring to the same thing as the Thessalonians passage. They are not being "taken." Matt 24:40-41 is talking about the people being taken to judgement where as the ones who remain (the ones in Matt 24:30-31) will be those who meet Jesus as he is coming back to earth (as described in 1 Thes 4:17). Just a thought... I am not a theologian!

Wish the terrified little girl, sitting in a pew in a rural Iowa church 60 years ago knew this 😢
