#1 - If you love the LORD and are washed in His Precious Blood, then we are Eternal Brethren in Christ and i am looking forward to seeing you in Heaven.What translation are you using because I got something different.
Ease up on the self-accusations.
We don't precede those that have those who have fallen asleep.
That seems simple enough. The dead in Christ rise first. That is the barley harvest.
When Jesus returns He will bring those that rose first with Him. Simple enough, When He returns for the Church, which is the wheat harvest, He will bring the dead in Christ with Him. The alive Church will be caught up to meet the dead in Christ in the air.
This is pretty simple stuff. I'm not sure why you are confused.
#2 - FALSE STATEMENT = "When Jesus returns He will bring those that rose first with Him"
Now, you can either PROVE yourself as speaking the Truth on this subject or PROVE me to be ignorant and in error.
The ONLY Way to PROVE the Truth is thru the TRUTH = "It is written"
NOTICE = i am not now, and have never accused you before the Brethren or our LORD and SAVIOR Jesus Christ.
But i do pray for your blessing in understanding.
What i am doing is exposing the falsehood of 'pre-trib rapture.
'Pre-trib rapture' never came out of the Mouth of God.
