  1. Amen! Thank you. The enemy has been trying so hard to bind me in fear about this, thinking I need to basically be perfect or "mature". I've struggled with sin like any Christian, but I hate my sin and I just want to be like christ. I believe and long for his return

  2. The church will not be raptured!

    28 And it shall be, if they refuse to take the cup at thine hand to drink, then shalt thou say unto them, Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Ye shall certainly drink.

    29 For, lo, I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by my name, and should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished: for I will call for a sword upon ALL the inhabitants of the earth, saith the Lord of hosts.

    30 Therefore prophesy thou against them all these words, and say unto them, The Lord shall roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy habitation; he shall mightily roar upon his habitation; he shall give a shout, as they that tread the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth. Jer 25:28-30 (KJV)

    15 That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past. Eccl 3:15 (KJV)

    These are the ones to be raptured on the day of Lord; Romans 8:29-30 (KJV)

    These that are born with the Holy Ghost: Judges 13:5 (KJV), Psalms 22:10 (KJV),

    Luke 1:15 (KJV), and Gal 1:15 (KJV)

    These are the elect, the prophets, (the hot);

    1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the STRANGERS scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,

    2 ELECT according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: … 1 Peter 1:1-2 (KJV)

    They are the 144k, the messengers to the adoption; Eph 1:4-5 (KJV)

    The reason for this verse;

    2 Be not forgetful to entertain STRANGERS: for thereby some have entertained ANGELS (messengers) unawares. Heb 13:2 (KJV)

    May God have mercy on his children. Amen

  3. The one taken is bird food. Luke 17:33-37.
    Job 39:27 27 Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?
    28 She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place.
    29 From thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off.
    30 Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she.

    and where the slain are, there is she. Job 39:30B

    For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. Matthew 24:28

    Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together. Luke 17:34-37

    Revelation 14:20.
    Her young ones also suck up blood Job 39:30A.

    Revelation 19:17-21.
    and where the slain are, there is she. Job 39:30B.

    You want to be left behind.

  4. some pastors teach that there will not be a rapture…perry stone did a couple of lessons called 3 groups that will miss the rapture part-1 part-2 part-3 on christians that do not believe in the rapture, christians who do not believe in the rapture will be left behind when jesus comes to rapture the church, a Christian that does not believe in the rapture, that unbelief is a sin and it limits GOD, people who constantly say and i don't believe he's coming and they put it way off, are in danger of not being prepared when jesus comes to rapture the church…the rapture is a reward for faithfulness…

  5. Read chapter 14, continues on about the beast and the mark, and again calls for the endurance of the saints…. Why do they need endurance if they’re not here to endure anything….

  6. Read Revelation 13, just read the whole chapter —- it talks about the beast and spells out what he will do —- which includes warring against the saints….. just a question to people who believe in the rapture —- if the beast is making war against the saints, where are the saints? The beast is here on earth……. The saints would also still have to be here on earth for him to make war with them AND overcome them….. chapter 13 says that’s what will happen…

  7. Still not understanding why everybody is reading into 1 Corinthians 15 that verse 52 has to mean rapture —- the whole chapter talks about the entire resurrection, talks about people who are dead who will also at the same time be raised …. Pretty sure what people think of rapture and full resurrection of all the earth’s dead is not supposed to happen at the same time —- just bad theology.

  8. According to Scripture, God always saves His children through tribulation, not secretly snatching them from trials (i.e. Noah, Joseph, Moses, Esther, Job, Jonah, Christ, the disciples, Protestant Reformers et al.). The righteous and the wicked will both be present on this earth during the final crisis of the mark of the beast and the seal of God (Revelation 7 & 13). In context, when Christ spoke of those "taken and left," those taken are taken away and destroyed, such as those who perished in the flood (Genesis 7). Those who are left are left alive and will inherit eternal life (Matthew 24, Luke 17 et al.).

  9. So here's my two cents.
    I believe concerning the Rapture, something so different that I do not believe its ever been thought of before now.
    I believe that my theory is correct and it is the perfect setup for governments around the world to lock down the globe because of the rapture, but not because people went missing.
    I know for certain that flesh can not enter into heaven, this is scripture. I also know that man is appointed unto death once, this is also scripture. My theory is that our spirits are taken out of our bodies leaving behind our husk, our fallen corrupted bodies. First the dead in Christ will ascend from the grave and then we who are alive and remain will be caught up to meet Jesus in the heavens to get our incorruptible perfect bodies. This theory will leave people on the earth believing that mass death occurred instantaneous across the globe. A fear will arise that biological warfare was just unleashed on a global population leaving governments fearful they were attacked. Use your imagination from there and let it line up with prophecy as to what will happen next. So God is going to allow corrupted living bodies into heaven? No, of course not . Just as he gives the spirits in the grave new bodies, the living will also receive new bodies. Incorruptible bodies. New bodies. Not overhauled bodies, not take the dents out, a new paint job bodies, but new bodies. This means the old is discarded.
    What a perfect deception, meaning that the only ones who will know the rapture occurred is when the Angel of God descends above the earth warning the population not to take the mark of the beast as its written in scripture. Between this time, the Antichrist takes his position causing all to wilfully worship him, why? Because they weren't aware that a rapture occurred. They believe he saved them from either a plague or biological warfare. If people knew it was the rapture, then they would instantly believe on God. They would say, the rapture was real, the Christians were right. They would instantly give their lives over to God and not the Antichrist if they wittnessed bodies ascending into the heavens. That's not going to happen because scripture tells us that those who remain willingly worship the Antichrist. They would only do this if there is no explanation for the instantaneous mass death across the globe and they are looking for answers out of extreme fear and desperation.

  10. I love the Lord♥️
    I am not Pure
    I am not Righteous
    I am a Sinner BUT Only GOD knows If he is going to rapture me!
    NO ONE and i mean NO ONE on this earth is living a pure and sinless life!!!
    But, We are trying I promise you we are trying.
    When we fall we get back up
    When we fail we get back up
    All we can do is keep getting back up
    Ask GOD for strength the Holy Spirit is powerful
    Ask as many times a day as necessary for forgiveness, Fight the good fight my brothers and sisters!!!
    Pray that we our found worthy for the Rapture ✝️

  11. ALL BORNA AGAIN Christians Will be RAPTURED. The fake christians who live like the world and do not live for JESUS will NOT be Raptured. IT IS Not about a Mature Christians or not. You can be a new Christian with a lot of Sin in your life Still, BUT IF YOUR HEART and MIND are SET on JESUS then you are RAPTURED even though you are a new or IMMATURE Christians SO the answer IS Wrong again because Pastors are Equivocators and always trying to make excuses for Christians NOT LIVING FOR JESUS. There are no EXCUSES for a HOLY GOD. As I said before you can still have sin in your life if YOUR HEART AND MIND are SET ON JESUS and You have not been convicted of the sins YET. But many do not care. They know better but follow the world instead of JESUS. GOD and JESUS are HOLY and No SIN is allowed and We have all Sinned and Fall short of the GLORY of GOD but those of us who have committed our Hearts Minds and LIVES to JESUS the sin Remainders are covered by the GRACE of JESUS. JESUS is not trying to trick anyone but there are many who are not living for JESUS anymore and have been told Once Saved always saved no matter their sinful life. IF you believe that. I think you will be left behind to Purify and Change your heart.JESUS will Decide and those left Behind do not really believe it is a real thing until it happens to them so we will all see when we see JESUS. I Trust you are there but there are no excuses for living in sin perpetually.

  12. ALL born again will be going in the rapture because the Holy Spirit will not leave us and it (the Restrainer) must be removed for the anti-Christ to be revealed. And many other reasons. Anything else is WORKS salvation…heresy.

  13. There is no pretrib rapture Jn 6,39,40,44,54 Jesus said All the Father gives me I’ll raise up on the last day and All that eat my flesh and drink my blood ill raise up on the last day. These men are pushing a lie. Paul said at the last day at the last trumpet Rev 11,15 Rev 10,7 the last trumpet 1cor 15,51,52 1Thess 4,13-17 Matt 24,29-31 2 Tim 4,1 the pretrib rapture is a lie and no lie is of Jesus.

  14. FOR ME, … my easy enough understanding is, at any time Christ will come for the rapture of, firstly, those that are already dead in Christ, and HIS CHURCH, AND THEN HIS SAINTS (THE REMAINING CHRISTIANS STILL ALIVE ON EARTH, at the time of Christ's coming "at the rapture only", … This is NOT the same as the time of Christ's coming with wrath and judgement AFTER the Tribulation period. So what I simply believe is this … **and IT IS SCRIPTURAL ABOUT THE RAPTURE** **1 Thessalonians 4:15–17** … So, the rapture comes first FOR THE RIGHTEOUS AND HIS CHURCH, so THEY avoid suffering the next 7 years of the horrible events that will befall this Earth by God, for these awful events (that I personally parallel to the plagues God put on Egypt to let HIS people go, … to the times of the Tribulation that will also endure plagues by God) … to turn from the Evil Beast, before the ultimate final days of the Armageddon , eg: God's angels that will be ordered to destroy 1/3 of all life on earth, including animals on land and sea. Many plagues will occur on Earth so as to get MORE saved to turn FROM THE BEAST (666), and Those "Tribulation Saints" who will die beheaded BECAUSE they refuse to obey Satan (the Beast), will be beheaded in the name of Christ, and Christ will have a very special place in eternity for those who will endure much for the purpose of HOLDING TO THEIR FAITH. So WHO will be Raptured, will be HIS previous already DEAD and buried flock, plus his still currently alive flock that will be alive to be WITH CHRIST, AND HIS CHURCH IN THE CLOUDS at the time of Rapture. It does say the dead in Christ shall rise first, and then those that remain still alive will then also, within a twinkle of an eye, will be Raptured to be with Christ, and this will outline exactly when the next 7 year AWFUL TRIBULATION PERIOD events will immediately follow. Blessings Terry

  15. No Christian Left behind. Those left were never Christian in anything more than name. No pre-trib rapture. Read Revelation chapter nine carefully. Gods mark will be on the elect’s forehead so they will not be harmed. Still here!

  16. 1 Thessalonians 5:9. Have you ever noticed that God's wrath is contrasted with salvation, not location?
    I realize how difficult it is between all of the "Amens" and "Hallelujahs" to pay attention but once you do, it's like, wait a minute…

  17. Do you still believe there is going to be a rapture? Proof it to me. Or are you believing a dream by a Scottish Girl in about 1820 promoted by Darby and Scofield? Wake up.

  18. Luke 17:30-37 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back. Remember Lot's wife. Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it. I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.

  19. Today we are only saved by BELIEVING The Gospel of Jesus Christ,1 st Corinthians Chapter 15 verse 1-4.Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins,was buried,and rose again on the third day.Jesus Christ Shed Blood is what saves you when you believe this plan of salvation with your heart.

  20. Greg, you have helped me through so much, but you are so wrong when it comes to your pre-trib rapture. Christ comes once. Once. Christians will go through the tribulation, but don’t worry, these things must happen for the end to come.
