Jesus gives His followers a marvelous promise:
“I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” (John 14:2-3)
Of all Bible doctrines, there is none so heavily debated as “The Rapture.” 1 Thessalonians 4 speaks about this event, but is the Bible saying that dead bodies are going to suddenly rip out of burial places all over the world? If so, what about the bodies that have been cremated or decomposed? Did God mean for this Scripture to be understood metaphorically? If it’s literal, will it happen in my lifetime? And what does it mean for my family and me?
In this 3-week series, we explore the Bible’s teachings on end times – the Tribulation, the Second Coming, and the Millennium – and find the answers to your questions.
