The rapture doctrine is based on a couple of flimsy (at best) Bible verses, and yet those who push it completely ignore the crystal clear Bible verses that 100 percent PROVE the rapture theory to be false. And not only is this a false teaching, those who believe in it cannot even agree on WHEN it is going to happen - pre-trib, mid-trib or post-trib. There is just complete confusion regarding this doctrine. And yet the Bible is so clear ... there is NO rapture. The word doesn't even exist in the Bible. So let me give you some Bible verses that expose this false doctrine.
Matthew 13:24-30 ...'Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; [NO] lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together FIRST the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.'
Oh how I love the true Word of God. It's sharper than any two edged sword! Praise the Lord! So what does this rapture theory teach? It teaches that Jesus will suddenly rapture away the church BEFORE the end of the world and BEFORE the lost (tares) are gathered, and then the world will CONTINUE another 7 years, during which there will be great tribulation. So the rapture doctrine teaches that Christ will take the saved FIRST. But what does the above Bible verses confirm? They confirm that the wheat (church) and the tares (lost) grow TOGETHER UNTIL THE HARVEST, and then the LOST are taken FIRST. And when is the harvest?
