With a child-like faith there are those who would deny the Teaching of "the Rapture", saying, "There's no such word in the Bible". But those of a more mature Faith are well aware that the Bible teaches that at the time of the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, the living Saints will be "Caught Up" to meet their Lord. The Word Rapture means "to be caught up".
It is Written.....
"...For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first; Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord." (1st. Thess. 4:16-17).
Some refer to it as being "caught away"; To others it is being "caught up"; The majority of believers call it "The Rapture". It would be childish indeed to fault a believer for using a particular phrase. The Greek word is 'harpazo': meaning: to eagarly claim for oneself; to eagerly snatch out or away.
We know there is to be a "Catching Away" or "Rapture" of (NOT the nominal Church) but the True Word-Bride of Christ. BUT the question is: HOW and in WHAT manner will it occur? As we continue to update this page we will endeavour to shed more light on this subject. It's an important revelation to the end-time Believers. There is a generation ordained to walk of the earth without seeing death. It is to that generation that God will reveal, in His Word, the Mystery of the Rapture of the Saints.
