The Rapture

Well, if I don’t post another blog after 6:00 pm Eastern time today, or is it Pacific time, you will know that I have been kidnapped [raptured] by God.

I used to be a staunch defender of the pre-tribulation rapture position. But then I came to my senses!

I have one statement articulating what I do not believe – I do not believe that Jesus is returning for a worn out hag that is looking for a knight in shining armor riding on a white stallion to rescue her from that dastardly devil.

Here are some of the things I firmly believe in ~

I believe Jesus is coming back to earth to a glorious Bride who is attacking the gates of hell.

I believe the Proverbs 31 woman is a description of the Bride Jesus is returning to!

I believe Jesus will remain in heaven until all of His enemies have been made a footstool for His feet!

I believe Jesus will remain in heaven until the restoration of all things!

I believe Jesus will remain in heaven until He has completed what He has begun in His people!

I believe Jesus will remain in heaven until Ephesians 4:11-16 has been fulfilled!

I believe Jesus will return to earth to a faith filled Body that is in proportion to its Head!

This is what I believe!

So, if I am wrong then it really won’t matter will it? Because when He does come I am going to meet Him face to face and I will not need to blog anymore.

For HIS Glory!

  1. I have done by best to study the topic of the rapture. For years now, I have struggled mightily between the belief of pre-trib versus post-trib. Some persons think that it does not matter; however, I think that it does. Revelation says that those who read and understand it are blessed. I want that in my life. Is there any thing that you could recommend to read and study–books and/or specific scriptures?

    • Jesus said to pray “On earth as it is in heaven”. We expect to hear “well done my good and faithful servant” when we see Him. I cannot reconcile those statements with a “come get me out of here because it is tough” mentality. I love Psalm 37! I have meditated on it a lot in the last few years. It is interesting all the references to the wicked being removed and the righteous inheriting the earth. Also, where is heaven? I think it is a dimension not a location. We are surrounded [ampitheatered] by a great cloud of witnesses. Jesus said heaven was within reach.
