The Rapture of the Church

Spirit-Lifting Thoughts for Today_150 x 150_jpg“For you know perfectly that the day of the Lord comes as a thief in the night.” “For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet 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. Wherefore, comfort one another with these words.” – 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; 5:2

The events described by the apostle Paul in these verses is the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and the Rapture of the Church.

When Jesus died on the cross, rose again, and ascended into heaven to be with God the Father, He told His disciples that, one day, He would return again. Therefore, we believe His promise and eagerly await His second coming, the rapture of His Bride (the faithful in His church), and the establishment of His millennial kingdom on the earth.

The word RAPTURE comes from the Greek word harpazo, which translates into a “catching away” of believers. The moment Jesus returns everyone will know; every eye will see Him coming in the sky. Some will be glad to see Him, while others will be afraid for their time of judgment has come. His mighty voice will shout from the heavens and the angels will blow their great trumpets.

The dead in Christ will be resurrected from their graves first, and then those of us who are still alive and remain will be instantly be given immortal bodies to fly up to meet the Lord in the air, which is the atmosphere between heaven and earth. Halleluyah!

Because no one knows the day or the hours of Jesus’ return, we need to be ready at all times by watching and living sanctified lives. Those who don’t have a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, or have not prepared their lamps with oil (like the five foolish virgins*) , will be left behind to experience the Great Tribulation, wrath of God He is sending upon the wicked of this earth.

If the Lord Jesus comes back today, will you be ready? If not, repent of your sinful ways and invite Jesus to become your Savior and Lord of your life. Amen.

The Rapture in an Atomic Second

Todays_Scripture_VerseTODAY’S SCRIPTURE VERSE: The Rapture in an Atomic Second

In describing the “catching away of believers” upon the return of Jesus Christ to the earth (the Rapture of the Church), the apostle Paul says it will happen in a split-second, in the twinkling of an eye. He uses the Greek word, Atomos, where we get Atom, or Atomic.

How fast is an atomic second?

   Imagine the passing of a regular second from a conventional clock. A regular second can even be calculated to one-tenth of a second, one one-hundreth of a second, and one one-thousands of a second.

   An atomic second is even faster. An atomic clock is a scientific time standard that regulates the oscillations of an atom particle – specifically the Cesium 133 isotope within an atom. So an atomic second is the interval of time taken to complete nine billion plus oscillations of the cesium 133 atom exposed to a suitable excitation. If you can image that, that’s how fast our bodies will be transformed into glorious bodies at the return of Jesus at the Rapture of the Church.

   For further study of the Rapture of the Church, order my teaching message entitled, “The Rapture in an Atomic Second.”

“Behold, I tell you a mystery — a hidden truth: We shall not all die, but some of us will be changed and transforrmed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet of God will sound, and the dead in Christ will be raised and receive incurruptible bodies to live forever.” – 1 Corinthians 15:51-52 .

Today’s Scripture Verse

The Rapture in an Atomic Second

What is an atomic second?

With the development of the atomic clock in the early 1960s, it was decided to use atomic time as the basis of the definition of the second, rather than the revolution of the Earth around the Sun.

Following several years of work, scientists determined the relationship between the hyperfine transition frequency of the caesium atom to be more accurate than the ephemeris second.

“Behold, I tell you a mystery — a hidden truth: We shall not all die, but some of us will be changed and transforrmed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet of God will sound, and the dead in Christ will be raised and receive incurruptible bodies to live forever.” – 1 Corinthians 15:51-52

In this Scripture, the aspostle Paul describes the catching away of believers upon the return of Jesus Christ to the earth. It is commonly known as “The Rapture of the Church”. However, the word Rapture never appears in the Bible. It was derived from the Greek word, Harpadzo, which means “a catching or snatching away.” Regardless of what term you prefer to use, it will be a glorious event that all Christian are looking forward to.
