The Rapture

Psalm 51:10-17 (KJV)

10) Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
11) Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
12) Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
13) Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
14) Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
15) O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall show forth thy praise.
16) For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.
17) The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

 

Introduction:

This page will cover detailed study of the rapture. We are currently formatting the information we have into a web friendly version but for now give you the Tyndale Bible Dictionary definition of the rapture. More will follow ...


Rapture as defined in the Tyndale Bible Dictionary:


Christian term used to denote the ascension (or lifting up) of Christians at the time of Christ's second coming. This is the noun corresponding to the verb used in 1Th 4:17, where those believers who are still alive at the coming of Christ are described as being “caught up” together with their resurrected fellow Christians to meet him “in the air.” (It may be relevant to note that the verb of 1Th 4:17 is used in 2Co 12:2-3 to denote Paul's mysterious experience of being “caught up” into the third heaven, or paradise.)
Differences of interpretation about the chronology of the rapture at the time of Christ's second coming in relation to other end-time events has led to the emergence of distinct schools of eschatological thought.
