“The ‘Rapture’ – 101”…Blog. [1/?]
*** (1Thessalonians 4:13-to-18) But we do not want you to be ignorant, brothers; about those who have died; so that you may ‘not’ grieve like other people; who have no hope.
(1Thes 4:14) For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again; even so it is through Jesus; that God will bring back with Him; those who have died.
(1Thes 4:15) For this we declare to you; by the word of the Lord; that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord; will by no means; precede those who have died.
(1Thes 4:16) With a shout of command; with the archangel's call; and with the sound of God's trumpet; the Lord Himself will come down from heaven; and the dead in Christ will rise first.
(1Thes 4:17) Then we who are alive and remain; will be caught up in the clouds; together with them; to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.
(1Thes 4:18) So then; encourage one another with these words.
Does the Bible teach a ‘Rapture’ of the Church…? There has been an ongoing debate among those; that call the Blessed Name of Christ Jesus… about this issue. In addition… it has ‘Spawned’… the “False Teaching” that… ‘Some would be Left Behind!’ This is what happens… when those who call themselves Christians… “Do Not Read & Study…= Their Bibles!” Did You know that the word… ‘Rapture’… is “Not in the Bible”…? Perhaps if we look at some of the “Poison Fruit”… about… “SOME Being Left Behind”… we can get to the ‘Root of the Problem’…? Just perhaps “IF”… we can see what the Holy Scriptures says about False Teachings! And then show the “True Teachings”… we will be able to look at the Rapture… with Clear Minds…! What is this really about is: “Eternal Salvation”… based on the “Finished Work of Redemption”… by the Lamb of God = Christ Jesus = our Passover [1Cor 5:7]…!
*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, the days come; says the Lord Jehovah, that I will send a famine in the land; not a famine of bread nor a thirst for water; but of = hearing = the Words of Jehovah [The Holy Word of GOD].
*** (1Thessaloninans 5:21) Prove all things; hold fast to the good.
*** (Acts 17:11) And these were more noble = than those of Thessalonica, = in that they received = the Word = with all readiness of mind = and = searched the Scriptures = “DAILY” = to see if those things were so [or Not].
*** (John 6:37) All that the Father [God] = gives Me [Jesus] = ‘shall’ come to Me; and the one who ‘comes’ to Me; I [Jesus] will in no way cast out.
“NONE = Left Behind – 101”…Blog [1/2]
*** (John 6:44) No one = can come to me = unless the Father [God]; Who sent Me [Jesus] = draws him; and I [Jesus] will ‘raise’ him to life on the last day.
For many years… this “False Teaching”… that ‘Some’ would… “BE LEFT BEHIND”… has plagued the… “IGNORANT!” [Def. Un-Informed]! False Preachers fill their Pulpits with their False Doctrine… which even includes: “One losing their Salvation!” Please answer One Question: “How can a Finite Sinful Human… Gain Eternal Salvation… and then LOSE that Salvation… from a Holy Infinite GOD”…? “IF” you “Cannot…‘Earn’ Salvation by Good Works”… “HOW THEN”… can ‘One Lose IT’… with ‘Bad’ Works”…? IF you “Do NOT Know–BIBLICALLY”… where ‘Your Salvation’ comes from… ‘How’ then can You know… “WHEN or HOW–You lose it”…? That is what Happens… when ‘You’ listen to “False Preaches” and… “NOT Listened to what The Bible Teaches”…!
*** (2Corinthains 11:13) Such people are false apostles; dishonest workers; who are ‘masquerading’ as apostles of Christ.
(2Cor 11:14) And no wonder; since Satan himself ‘masquerades’ as an angel of light.
(2Cor 11:15) So it is not surprising; if his servants also ‘masquerade’ as servants of righteousness. Their doom will match their deeds!
*** (2Peter 2:1-2) Now there were false prophets among the people; just as there also will be false teachers among you; who will secretly introduce destructive heresies; and even deny the Master who bought them; bringing swift destruction on themselves.
(2Pet 2:2) MANY people will follow their immoral ways; and because of them the way of truth; will be maligned.
*** (Jude 1:3-4) Dear friends, although I was eager to write to you about the ‘salvation’ we share; I found it ‘necessary’ to write to you; and ‘urge’ you; to continue your ‘vigorous’ defense of the faith; that was passed down to the saints; once and for all.
(Jude 1:4) For some people; have slipped in among you unnoticed. They were written about long ago; as being deserving of this condemnation; because they are ungodly. They turn the grace of our God into uncontrollable lust; and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.
*** (Luke 18:8) I [Jesus] say to you; that He [God] will avenge them speedily. Yet when the Son of Man comes; shall He find [True] Faith on the earth? [Matthew 24:24]
*** (1John 2:19-20-21) They went ‘out’ from us; but they were ‘not’ of us; for ‘if’ they were of us; they would have ‘continued’ with us. But they ‘went’ out; so that it ‘might’ be revealed; that they were ‘not’ all of us.
(1Jn 2:20) But you have an ‘anointing’ from the Holy One; and you know all things.
(1Jn 2:21) I have not written to you; because you ‘do not’ know the Truth; but ‘because’ you know it; and know that ‘No Lie’ = is of “The TRUTH”.

*** (John 7:38-39) The one who believes in Me [Jesus]; as the Scripture has said; will have rivers of living water; flowing from his heart."
(John 7:39) Now He [Jesus]; said this about the [Holy] Spirit; Whom those who were believing in Him; were to receive. For the [Holy] Spirit was not yet present; because Jesus had ‘not’ yet been glorified.
*** (Hebrews 5:8-9) Son though He [Jesus] was; He ‘learned’ obedience; through His sufferings
(Heb 5:9) and, once made perfect; He became the author of ‘eternal’ salvation; for all; who ‘obey’ Him,
*** (Romans 8:9) You, however; are ‘not’ of the flesh; but under the control of the Spirit; since God's [Holy] Spirit lives in you. And if “Anyone” = ‘does not’ have the Spirit of Christ; he does = ‘NOT’ = belong to Him.

*** (1Jn 5:6) This is He who came through water and blood; Jesus Christ; not by water only; but by the water and blood. And the Spirit is He who bears witness; because the Spirit is the Truth.
*** (John 16:13-14-15) Yet when the [Holy] Spirit of Truth comes; He will guide you into all Truth. For He will not speak on his own accord; but will speak whatever He hears; and will declare to you the things that are to come.
(John 16:14) He will glorify Me; for He will take what is Mine; and declare it to you.
(John 16:15) All that the Father [God] has is Mine. That is why I [Jesus] said, “He will take what is Mine; and declare it to you.”
*** (1Corinthians 2:10) But God has revealed those things to us by His [Holy] Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything; even the deep things of God.
(1Cor 2:11) Is there anyone who can understand his own thoughts; except by his own inner spirit? In the same way, no one can know the thoughts of God; except God's [Holy] Spirit.
(1Cor 2:12) Now, we have ‘not’ received the spirit of the world; but the [Holy] Spirit; Who comes from God; so that we can ‘understand’ the things; that were ‘freely’ given to us by God.
(1Cor 2:13) We don't speak about these things in words taught us by human wisdom; but in words taught by the [Holy] Spirit; as we ‘explain’ spiritual things’ to ‘spiritual’ people.
(1Cor 2:14) A person who isn't spiritual; doesn't accept the things of God's Spirit; for they are nonsense to him. He can't understand them; ‘because’ they are spiritually evaluated.
*** (2Corinthains 1:20-21-22) For All the promises of God in Him are yes; and in Him Amen; to the glory of God by us.
(2Cor 1:21) But He ‘confirming’ us; and ‘anointing’ us with you; in Christ is God.
(2Cor 1:22) And He has ‘sealed’ us; and having given the ‘earnest’ of the [Holy] Spirit in our hearts.
*** (Romans 8:14-to-17) For as many as are led by the [Holy] Spirit of God; they are the sons of God.
(Rom 8:15) For you have ‘not’ received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but you have ‘received’ the [Holy] Spirit of adoption; by which we cry, Abba, Father!
(Rom 8:16) The [Holy] Spirit Himself bears witness with our [human] spirit; that we are the children of God.
(Rom 8:17) And if we are children; then we are heirs; heirs of God; and joint-heirs with Christ; so that ‘if’ we suffer with Him; we may also be glorified together.
*** (Titus 3:5) ‘not’ by works of righteousness which we have done; but ‘according’ to His mercy He saved us; through the washing of regeneration; and renewal of the Holy Spirit,
*** (John 15:3) Now you are clean through the Word; which I [Jesus] have spoken to you.
*** (Ephesians 2:8-9-10) For by such grace you have been saved through faith. This ‘does not’ come from you; it is the ‘gift’ of God
(Eph 2:9) and ‘not’ the result of works; lest anyone boast.
(Eph 2:10) For we are his masterpiece; created in Christ Jesus for good works; that God prepared long ago; to be our way of life.
*** (Romans 11:6) But if this is by grace; then it is no longer on the basis of works. Otherwise, grace would no longer; be grace.
*** (Romans 4:4) Now to someone who works; wages ‘are not’ considered a gift; but an obligation.
(Rom 4:5) However, to someone who ‘does not’ work; but simply ‘believes’ in the One [Christ]; Who justifies the ungodly; his faith is ‘credited’ as righteousness.
*** (Hebrews 12:6-to-9) For the Lord ‘disciplines’ the one He loves; and He ‘punishes’ every son he accepts.
(Heb 12:7) What you ‘endure’ is for the sake of discipline. God is ‘treating’ you as sons. Is there a son whom his father does not discipline? [None]
(Heb 12:8) Now if you are ‘without’ any discipline; in which all [say they are] sons share; then you are illegitimate [Bastard]; and ‘not’ His sons.
(Heb 12:9) Furthermore, we had earthly fathers who used to discipline us, and we respected them for it. We should even more ‘submit’ to the Father of our spirits and live, shouldn't we?
*** (1Corinthains 11:30) That's why so ‘many’ of you are WEAK; and SICK; and a considerable ‘number’ are DYING.
(1Cor 11:31) But if we judged ourselves correctly; we would not be judged [by God].
(1Cor 11:32) Now, while we are being judged by the Lord; we are being ‘disciplined’ lest we be condemned; along with the world.
