This End Times Seminar presents a fair and well balanced approach to the End Times that covers all views and uses the Bible alone as the guidebook and authority throughout each session. Definitely worth a listen! Dee
Session 3 – Four Views of the Rapture
For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. ~1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
Session 3 of an 8-Session End Times Seminar. This session covers Four Views of the Rapture.
The Session begins with a reminder that Jesus wants us to long for His return. I then explain the main passages describing the Rapture.
I share that there is a lot of debate over the timing of the Rapture and that unfortunately this has caused a lot of division among Christians. I emphasize the importance of Christians being able to discuss this issue without divisiveness.
Next, I explain each of the Four Main Views on the Rapture – along with the Scriptures and reasoning used to support each of the four views. I also discuss some of the reasons Christians point out for not supporting particular views.
I spend some time talking about what unites Christians on all four of these Rapture Views – and explain that what divides us on these views is timing – The Timing on the Starting Point of God’s Wrath. I then explain why this is important and what is really at stake on the timing of the Rapture.
I share that since none of the 4 Views can be proven with 100% certainty, it is good to know and understand all 4 Views. This allows people to be prepared for the future should the view they hold to not be correct as events unfold.
I also emphasize that I only want people to believe what the Scriptures alone convince them to believe.
I would like to thank Ted Larson and Pat Smith for their amazing art work.
