Does The Bible Teach Rapture?
Is The Rapture A False Doctrine?
1 Thessalonians 4:15-17
15For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17Then 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.
Rapture isn't in the Bible, "Rapture" is from the Latin word raptus, meaning "caught up" from the action word rapere,which means" to transport from one place to another". Greek original is harpazo, which means a violent Snatching Away.
