MORNINGTIME 3510by Benjamin Munsell on June 14, 2020
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, AT THE LAST TRUMP: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1 Corinthians 15:52. BEHOLD, He cometh with clouds; and EVERY EYE SHALL SEE HIM, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen. Revelation 1:7. Conclusion: At the last trump, every eye shall see Him. I LOVE THE RETURN OF CHRIST. I love all the Scriptures that speak of Christ coming back for His People, His Bride, The Church. ALL those verses are True and Amen. (Now, here comes the heresy). BUT I HATE THE RAPTURE. It's a concept totally based on the FEAR OF THE FUTURE and that Christ is coming back 2 MORE TIMES. The first, to snatched up the Christians and take them to Heaven because the coming WRATH OF GOD is against every man, woman and child on the face of the earth, and then a second time to get the rest of the Christians who didn't get snatched up the first time. My Bible says He's coming back ONE TIME to get His Bride, The Church. Their bible says He's coming 2 MORE TIMES, and the first doesn't count BECAUSE HIS FEET DON'T TOUCH THE GROUND!!! If you take away ALL FEAR OF THE FUTURE, ALL FEAR OF IMPENDING DOOM, ALL FEAR OF DEATH AND DESTRUCTION, so that Believers see the Future Great Tribulation as an event, as the Wrath of the Lord against the UNBELIEVING people of the world, and as a time when the Mighty Right Arm of The Lord will take care of ALL HIS PEOPLE, as He has done throughout ALL the Bible, then with NO FEAR, the "Rapture theology" falls flat on its face. If I have no fear of the future, and Trust that the Lord will use me however He wants in His Great Plan, AND that He will call me Home at any moment of His choosing, (just like He's been doing for the last 6000 years), then it seems as though there is no NEED of The Rapture. Preaching Christ, Edifying Christ, and Exalting Christ before a dead and dying world, is how we will, Be Blessed.
