1 Thessalonians 4:15-17
For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 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 which 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.
The word rapture is a latin term, therefore is not found in our English Bibles - yet the english phrase “caught up together” means the exact same thing. Oh, what do you know - the rapture is found in my Bible.
Most worldly religious people on earth, in the world's largest religion(s), do not agree with Scripture. Their made up ideas of rapture were derived or gotten or repeated from someplace other than Scripture. i.e. for those worldly people, or for those in error, "caught up together" as Scripture says is not the same at all as their mistaken thoughts and doctrines and all the dogmas associated with their thoughts.
Jeff, can you start a new topic on the term Rapture so we can properly discuss it. Thank you.
