  3. 3. RAPTURE <ul><li>Have you ever seen how Magnet works ? </li></ul><ul><li>If brought over a mix of sand and other materials; </li></ul><ul><li>the Magnet will snatch away all Iron filings </li></ul><ul><li>(Things only of Magnetic attraction will be caught up) </li></ul><ul><li>Rapture can be compared to this </li></ul><ul><li>At the coming of the Lord to clouds, ( All who belongs to him ) </li></ul><ul><li>Dead in Christ will be risen first </li></ul><ul><li>The living in Christ will be changed ( Together caught up ) </li></ul><ul><li>(Will be caught up together to meet the Lord in the clouds) </li></ul>
  4. 4. RAPTURE <ul><li>1 The. 4:16-17 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: </li></ul><ul><li>and the dead in Christ shall rise first: </li></ul><ul><li>Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: </li></ul><ul><li>and so shall we ever be with the Lord. </li></ul><ul><li>1 Cor.15: 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump:..we shall be changed. </li></ul>
  5. 5. RAPTURE <ul><li>Rapture (of the church) was a mystery . </li></ul><ul><li>Resurrection was not a mystery. (Job.19: 25-27) </li></ul><ul><li>(Was known to the men in other ages past.) </li></ul><ul><li>Living in Christ changed and caught up </li></ul><ul><li>Translation of the saints was a mystery. (1.Cor.15: 51) </li></ul><ul><li>(Was not known to the men in other ages past.) </li></ul><ul><li>Apostle Paul revealed this mystery. </li></ul><ul><li>1 Corinthians 15: 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; </li></ul><ul><li>We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, </li></ul>

Post- tribulation rapture </li></ul><ul><li>Church will pass thru tribulation and then caught up. </li></ul><ul><li>Partial rapture ( As parts but not church as a whole ) </li></ul><ul><li>Is a modern school of thought </li></ul><ul><li>( Of some “modern movement” have no scriptural support ) </li></ul>
