Wonderful Truth of the Very Near Rapture (Catching Up of All Believers)!! Those Who Died in Christ ===1 THESS. 4:13-18 NASB
13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus. 15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Thenwe who are...
Why be left behind on rapture day??? God Removes His People before His Judgement falls on evil sin lovers!!
God Removes His People before His Judgement falls on evil sin lovers!!
God removed Righteous Noah and his family and shut them up in the ark for their protection before the great flood that destroyed all evil sin loving people.
God removed Righteous Lot and his family from Sodom before God destroyed Sodom.
Jesus will rapture (catchup) all righteous in Christ believers before the judgment of the great tribulation!!! PTL. Will you meet Jesus in the clouds as your Lord and Savior or as your final Judge?? You get to choose!!!
Sword started a thread about the common ground of things that we all can agree upon.
Which has got me thinking about the things that we don’t seem to agree upon!
If we are honest with each other and ourselves, many things that we “hold as to what we each believe , or don’t believe…is nothing more than our personal opinion of how we choose to interpret scripture.
( but many people seem to have a real problem with believing or agreeing, that they mostly have is "opinions”)
We see discussions on here about rapture…which doesn’t really matter much, because it will happen , or not happen no matter what we choose to believe strongly upon!!
We see discussions between Catholic and Protestants …again, it doesn’t really...
Do you know that those who add works to the Gospel of grace are under a curse? I am not talking about the traits of the children of God which are a result of the Holy Spirit within them. I am talking about salvation.
There were believing Jews (they believed that Jesus was their Messiah and King) that followed after Paul teaching that Paul’s convert must be circumcised and keep the law of Moses.
5 But some of the sect of the Pharisees who believed rose up, saying, "It is necessary to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses."
This is obviously the message that James is teaching when he said faith without works is dead (see James 2:1-26 and Acts 21:20).
20 And when they heard it,...
In the 4 gospels Jesus told Peter to feed His Sheep and Lambs. These were the Jews who were His people.
Today, under grace, the children of God are not His Sheep or Lambs. We are "the body of Christ" and sons of God. As sons we are heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ.
15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out,"Abba, Father."
16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,
17 and if children, then heirs — heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.
14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and...
Rapture is not in the Bible... But caught up is!
And caught up is not to return!
We will be caught up with Christ in the air...
We will return with Christ after tribulation to reign with him 1,000 years.
If we are not raptured away pre-trib... How are we going to return with Christ to reign with him 1,000 years???
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven...
It seems that there are several people who hold a belief that Christ has stopped existing as a flesh and spirit being. Here is the thread to discuss it.
Shall I mention global warming? Is it real, is it happening? or is it not real?
I have been leaning towards the "real" answer lately, while their may still be freak weather events with cold snaps that only last for a day or 2, nearly every month i check the temperature averages, they are above average, for regular snow, the snow line seems to be going up, and the last time there was 3 metres of snow in Aussie alpine resorts was decades ago, we are seeing winter starting later, temps getting warmer in June, a pretty slow start to ski season, it only really started snowing regularly in the later half of July, to add to it, Mt Donna Buang have only recorded a few days of snow this season, their record is 17 weeks of snow cover on ground,...
While it will NEVER be correct that one kind of animal can spontaneously change itself into another kind of animal, and somehow ALWAYS be able to find a mate to propagate, the rest of what they call evolution is merely what God put in place so that the earth and all in it could keep going, even after the fall, which He knew was coming . Read in Genesis how God BLESSED them ( blessed means 'Empowered to prosper/grow/increase'. We make everything too hard. there shouldn't be a divide between science and God, science after all, is just our evidence of how God did/does things. Men must not make the mistake that they somehow created math or science in general, all they did was uncover what was already there. Blessings all around !............Pia
