Rapture Theory: True or False? Part 1
In part 1 (linked above) I discussed the history of Rapture Theory, provided some scripture, and a brief breakdown of the Book of Revelation. I also linked to one or two of many sources I used in my studies on the topic.
I'm not offering this information to turn anyone away from Christ but to bring people to Christ. As a Christian Pastor is that not my job? It disheartens me to see so many people believing in false doctrines and praying to idols and false Christ's. Many mainstream interpretations of Christian theology is just that, false. And in turn you are following false doctrine and false Christ's. Some newer versions of Christianity are going as far as taking the deity out of Christ.
That being said, here are additional verses of Scripture in reference to the "Rapture". Part 3 will go specifically into Tribulation. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
(If you have not already done so, please review Part 1 first)
1 Samuel 2:8-10 KJV
He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the Lord's, and he hath set the world upon them. He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail. The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the Lord shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed.
2 Chronicles 7:20 KJV
Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for my name, will I cast out of my sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations.
Psalm 1:4-6 KJV
The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
Psalm 9:5 KJV
Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.
Psalm 9:17 KJV
The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
Psalm 11:5-6 KJV
The Lord trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth. Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
Psalm 37:17-20, 38 KJV
For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the Lord upholdeth the righteous. The Lord knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever. They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away. But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.
Psalm 52:2-5 KJV
Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully. Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah. Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue. God shall likewise destroy thee for ever, he shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place, and root thee out of the land of the living. Selah.
Psalm 129:4 KJV
The Lord is righteous: he hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.
Psalm 139:18-19 KJV
If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee. Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.
Proverbs 3:25-26 KJV
Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.
Proverbs 10:3, 25, 27-30 KJV
The Lord will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked. As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more: but the righteous is an everlasting foundation. The fear of the Lord prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened. The hope of the righteous shall be gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish. The way of the Lord is strength to the upright: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity. The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.
Proverbs 11:31 KJV
Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner.
Proverbs 12:3, 28 KJV
A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved. In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway thereof there is no death.
Proverbs 13:9, 15, 20 KJV
The light of the righteous rejoiceth: but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out. Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard. He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
Proverbs 14:11 KJV
The house of the wicked shall be overthrown: but the tabernacle of the upright shall flourish.
Proverbs 21:12, 15, 18, 28 KJV
The righteous man wisely considereth the house of the wicked: but God overthroweth the wicked for their wickedness. It is joy to the just to do judgment: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity. The wicked shall be a ransom for the righteous, and the transgressor for the upright. A false witness shall perish: but the man that heareth speaketh constantly.
Proverbs 24:19-20 KJV
Fret not thyself because of evil men, neither be thou envious at the wicked; For there shall be no reward to the evil man; the candle of the wicked shall be put out.
Ezekiel 7:11 KJV
Violence is risen up into a rod of wickedness: none of them shall remain, nor of their multitude, nor of any of theirs: neither shall there be wailing for them.
Malachi 4:3 KJV
And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts.
Matthew 13:41-42, 49-50 KJV
The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
So, as you can see, it is not the Righteous that are going anywhere. I understand it is a hard concept to swallow. Truth wasn't meant to be easy. Part 3 will go into the reason why it is the wicked, not the righteous, that are to be removed.
