    GOD OFFERS THE FREE GIFT OF SALVATION TO ALL WHO WILL TRUST IN JESUS! Who would reject such a free gift?? Romans 1:16 - "For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
    For you have been saved by (God's) grace through faith (in Christ);
    and this did not come from you - it is God's gift.
    Nor did it come from what you have done, lest anyone should boast.

    Ephesians 2:8-9

    Those who think that they are already saved by the predetermined arbitrary choice of the god that they believe in.

    What about the untold trillions who never heard the gospel?

    God says NO man has an excuse to not know God is very real. Romans 1:18-25
    8 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

    19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

    20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

    21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

    22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

    23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

    25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    This speaks of the damnation of all, not their salvation.

    Don't waste my time=this scripture is not hard to understand Romans 1:20-21 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

    21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

    It says nothing about salvation, only damnation.

    Nice to see you have abandon the believe that only those actively looking for Jesus's return will be saved.

    Poor reading comprehension??? I posted that Hebrews 9:28 says Jesus will return for (rapture) those that are looking for Him. There will be many saved believers that reject the rapture and be saved but left behind. Their choice!

    And it can be understood to mean all Christians, not just those trying to work out when he will return.

    Jesus says we are to know when His return is nesr==Luke 21:28 28When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near."

    Born-again believers receive a new immortal body as Jesus has. What material it is made of we are not told but it will be very real and physical. At the marriage supper of the Lamb, we will eat and drink=just for fun!!!

    This leaves only saints in glorified bodies for the "millennium" for Satan to deceive and use to attack each other when loosed.

    And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.

    20There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.

    21And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.

    22They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.

    23They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them. Isdaiah 65:19-24

    24And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. 25The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.

    Paul says the rapture comes after the resurrection and Jesus says in the resurrection they are as the angels and don't marry. So your theory does not fit the facts.
