The Rapture-Bodies flying into the air
As long as I have been saved I have been told about Jesus coming for me in what is known as the rapture.
It, (as has been explained) will be at some time in the future and all Christians will be removed from off the earth.
There has been countless books, movies even video taped pleas to the unsaved to repent. Hoping they will realize when they see the truth of the rapture (all Christians disappearing) they would then realize the truth and repent.
I dont however, subscribe to that belief any more. I believe God has given me an insight (which obviously seems so simple and obvious) that I never saw before.
We use the verse: 1Co 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
We tell each other in a twinkling of an eye those who are Christians will be raptured. Pilots would disappear and planes will crash as well as trucks and busses and all forms of transportation.
We say that people all over the world will vanish and the world will be amazed.
This just cant be true. Lets look at this verse and those surrounding it again:
1Co 15:48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
(In other words physical bodies for the earth, spiritual for the heavens.)
1Co 15:49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
We now have an earthly body we will get a heavenly one.
1Co 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
Bodies do not and can not enter the Spiritual realm
1Co 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
The key word here is changed
1Co 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
The dead will be raised (already) incorruptible and WE (the living) will be CHANGED.
1Co 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
1Co 15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
So it is my observation of the facts that our bodies will simply fall to the ground as gravity permits and God will in a twinkling, change us.
So, the pilot will fall over, the truck driver will slump in his seat, etc
Also, those who will witness all the dead Christians will probably blame a virus or that God had taken the real evil ones away and the good people are now left.
