The Rapture of the Church
Since I was 14 years old the Lord has been teaching me about the Rapture of the Church. I've always felt that it was a subject that the Lord would use me to teach the church. My very first sermon was about the end times. To me this subject is a great puzzle that we piece together one part at a time to get a clear and focused understanding of it. So many have lost their way because of something someone has said about a verse misrepresenting it.
There are answers to your questions about verses you don't understand. I hope this study guide along with the recorded audio messages help you put these pieces together. While this is for anybody wishing to study the Rapture of the Church, when I was putting this together I had in mind all of the pastors and Bible college students who need this study to help their congregations. I've done the research for you so you can spend your time in one resource and not have to purchase all the books I have acquired in my library.
My recent audio series took 13 months to preach and at least another 24 months to put into the form you're reading right now. We hope it blesses you and helps you defend what you believe. This is my study and not someone else's rewritten.
Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
- 1 John 3:2-3 (KJV)
