WHEN IS THE RESURRECTION?

Some years ago I was doing some cleaning in the house and had Christian tv on in the background and the preacher said. “The rapture and the resurrection are the same event” Which really perked up my ears but thought “we all know that.” The dead in Christ shall rise first….. Then it occurred to me that instead of searching for when the rapture is, that we should search for when the resurrection is and then we would KNOW when the rapture is because they are the same event.
I really began to think about this matter as the Lord had quickened it to me and here are my findings in the Word of God. (there is more scripture as well not listed here)
And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
1 Thessalonians 4:15-17
15 For 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.
16 For 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:
17 Then 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.
One of the definitions of “remain” in the greek means “to survive” G4035 Strongs
2 Thessalonians 2
2 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, (resurrection/rapture)
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. (imminent resurrection/rapture)
3 Let no man deceive you ( !!!! ) by any means: for that day (resurrection/rapture) shall not come, except there come a falling away first, (apostasy from the truth)and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Words in ( ) are from me.
So Paul was advising them to not think the resurrection/rapture was “at hand or imminent” but to know that two things had to happen first. A Falling away from the faith and the revealing of the Antichrist. He even said it was a deception to believe otherwise.
There are more scriptures about Jesus saying the resurrection/rapture was after the tribulation. (Matthew 24) and (Mark 13). I will just share a few more.
1 CORINTHIANS 15
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
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. (Again note the resurrection of the dead.)
This is my FEAR dear brother. That the believers who don’t see the pretribulation rapture
Happen FIRST and go into tribulation will fall away from the faith and be ripe for Antichrist. They will also readily take the mark so their families don’t starve because they thought they would be “out of here” before the trouble starts and have not prepared. They will fall away from the faith.
Search for when the resurrection is and you will know when the rapture is. Believe the Word of God.
Oh one last thing. This is my approach to the Bible and I have said it many times, “It doesn’t matter what you think and it doesn’t matter what I think. It only matters what God thinks” Let us be bereans.
REPENT NOW ! STOP SINNING NOW ! PREPARE NOW ! PLAGUE, WAR, FAMINE AND PERSECUTION ARE COMING. YOU WILL SUFFER IF YOU DO NOT PREPARE.
YOUR CHILDREN WILL SUFFER. BELIEVE THE WORD OF GOD !! DRAW CLOSE TO JESUS NOW! THE KING IS COMING !
