Is The Rapture Biblical?
Welcome to The Rapture Rebuttal. On our site you will find several
studies devoted to the rapture doctrine. The purpose of these studies is to
find the answer to one question. Is the Rapture Biblical? For those of you
who don't know, the word rapture is often used to describe our gathering
back to Jesus upon His return. Those who teach the pre-tribulation doctrine,
which is the one we will concern ourselves with, contend that Jesus will
return two times, the first time to gather His saints from the earth and
take them to heaven. According to them, believers will simply
disappear from where they stand, leaving little more than a pile of
clothes and some very confused bystanders behind. After seven years of great
tribulation, Christ will then return again to reign upon the earth for a
one-thousand year period, also known as the millennium. While portions of
these beliefs are Biblically based, much of the rapture theory is at odds
with the Holy Scriptures.
Anytime we begin to test a doctrine, we must let the
Bible be our authority. In doing so, we must view
scripture in context and in relationship to other
scriptures that deal with the same subject. Most often
when the rapture is taught, you will receive two
or three verses, taken completely out of context
and you will be told what you should believe about them.
Our studies will show you these same verses in context
and in comparison to similar verses. We contend if you
view the scriptures in this manner, you can only
come to one conclusion. The Rapture is not Biblical! We
know how popular the rapture is and it is difficult to
comprehend how a fable has come to dominate prophetic
teachings. We shouldn't be too surprised though,
we were told the day would come when sound doctrine
would be rejected in favor of false teachings. We hope
you will view our studies and earnestly consider the
conflict between this doctrine and the Bible.
2 Timothy Chapter 4
(3) For the time will come when they will not endure
sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they
heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
(4) And they shall turn away their ears from the
truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
