There is a great deal of controversy about the word “rapture.” Should we say rapture or gathering together when referring to this event?
In Revelation the white wedding garments of believers are mentioned multiple times. Are the wedding garments and rapture timing related?
Many Christians are confused about the Parable of the Wedding Feast. What lessons does this parable teach?
Interest in the great sign of Rev. 12:1 that might occur in September, 2017 has led some to speculate: is Rev. 12:5 a picture of the rapture? And if so will Christians be raptured in a few months?
Did Jesus share a parable on multiple occasions in order to explain the Rapture? Is this “Rapture Parable” his most misunderstood parable?
Pre-Trib. Rapture theorists believe the Elect of Matt. 24 are the Jewish remnant. Pre-Wrath Rapture theorists believe they are Christians. This is not a trivial question. If they are the Jewish remnant, the Pre-Wrath Rapture theory is incorrect. If they are the Church, the Pre-Trib. Rapture theory is incorrect. So who are the elect of Matt. 24?
In Hebraic prophecies, a Jewish grammatical idiom known as the “prophetic perfect” is sometimes used that substitutes a “past tense” for what obviously should be “future tense.” This makes us ask, “When is the Past the future?”
Jesus’s walking on the water was a most unusual miracle; probably his most unusual miracle. Why did he walk on water; what was his purpose? Jesus was tempted by Satan to jump from the pinnacle of the Temple. Jesus considered this similar miracle to be sin. So was Jesus’s walking on water a picture of the Rapture when he will someday walk on clouds? This is a radical new way to look at this miracle. If this was the purpose of the miracle, what can we learn from it?
Jesus has equated the relationship between He and His Church as a marriage. Isn’t it likely that ancient Jewish marriage customs would then reflect the first and second Comings of Jesus? They do.
The Church’s current understanding of the short one verse Parable of the Vultures in the Olivet Discourse (from Matt. 24:28) requires the misapplication of no less than THREE Greek words. This must set some kind of record for a single verse. When the proper application of those words is made, this somewhat grotesque-sounding verse becomes a beautiful picture of the Rapture.
