1 Corinthians 15:50-58, says 51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. 54 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” So earnestly and steadfastly desire to be delivered from groaning and the sighing for the redemption of our body in the rapture in Christ. God hears groaning so will save again in the new covenant.
Rapture is expected in Christian eschatology that any day believers will be lifted up to heaven as in 1 Thessalonian 4:16. The dead in Christ and the living will be raptured by Christ and angels, from unbearable tribulation of 7 years. Christ returns with angels from heaven to lift up the elect into heaven. Jesus said ONLY GOD KNOWS EXACT DAY, DATE AND TIME OF RAPTURE so nobody knows exact specific time. JESUS SAYS He does not know exact day or time GOD WILL ASK Him to come to rescue followers from tribulation. So do not get caught up in debates or arguments to prevent faith in Christ to qualify for rapture. 3. Christ said, GOSPEL MUST BE PREACHED all over the world for ALL TO HEAR SO THEY HAVE NO EXCUSE TO SAY THEY NEVER HEARD THEN END WILL COME. Billions of people need to hear the gospel so elect watchmen must pray day and night to compel God to intervene to shorten perilous times to send Jesus quickly to rapture them from evil. 5. The church is the bride of Christ so must be spotless and ready for the Groom Christ to come, so is the church really ready? 6. Jesus said false prophets will try to predict end to mislead, deceive elect not praying, reading, studying Bible or seeking God’s Face. In Matthew 25:13 Watch for you know not the day or the hour when Son of man comes. 7. Jesus warns do not be cynical, complacent, fed up so refuse to get ready or lose faith to miss real rapture due to unbelief, doubt, disappointment, previous experience false alarm so let down before and discouraged. 8. The Bible says life will continue with business as usual when rapture takes place. People are busier than ever buying, selling, given in marriage getting married, celebrating, having fun, leisure, pleasure, mocking, ridiculing God as days of Noah the Son of God will return for rapture. 9. Avoid conflicting theological arguments, contradictions, debates over text interpretation; pre-occupying distractions of believers who should spend quality precious time winning souls for God for rapture. 10. Be ready for coming of Christ like the last day but be prepared for tomorrow. 11. If Christ did not come on anticipated day, still hope and expect Christ in future Continue to look forward to Christ’s return for the rapture. Never allow anyone to tell you to sell assets or property for fixed day or date for the rapture for Bible never said to do so. It is true, Christians sell things to sponsor the gospel or provide for believers in communally in Acts, but it is by own choice and freewill. 12. So, the set time for rapture is known only by God Who will send Christ to rescue, save elect, remnant, when trumpet sounds. Christ will come back to reign and rule the new believers saved after first rapture to go to into heaven.
In an instant, the Lord Almighty will come with thunder, earthquakes, great noise, with wind storms, tempest and flames of a devouring fire. Then the hordes of all the nations that fight against Ariel symbolic name for Jerusalem, that attack her and her fortress and besiege her will be as it is with a dream, with a vision in the night as a hungry person dreams of eating, but awakens hungry still.. so will it be with the hordes of all the nations that fight against Mount Zion in Isaiah 29:5–8.
The believer sheep and unsaved goats will be segregated when Jesus, the Prince of Peace returns to rescue believers to restore life eventually to perfection like the Garden of Eden before sin entered. This is the new earth with Jesus and saints plus the 144000 who preached salvation and save others from all nations and tribes on earth. Together they will rule and reign for 1000 years while the devil is bound for 1000 years.
Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:1-6 received revelations from God in Heavenly Vision of Paradise. Paul’s anointed spiritual gifts from same Spirit of God. In 1 Corinthians 12, 1-11, speaking by the spirit of God that, “Jesus is Lord,” is through Holy Spirit. So, the Gospel has many gifts from God to manifest God in diverse ways for unity and diversity in the Body. This aspects of different forms of service are from same God 6 so different workings are produced in all. 7 Each individual manifestation of God’s Spirit is given to benefit all. 8 Spirit of expression of wisdom; knowledge, 9 faith, gifts of healing 10 mighty deeds; prophecy; discernment of spirits; varieties of tongues language and interpretation of tongues. 11 The One and Same Spirit distributed individually as God pleases. So concerning spiritual gifts, be not ignorant. In the body are many members in one body so believing Christ’s work of rapture is received by faith. So be informed, aware, alert, watchful in prayer and thanksgiving to GOD.
