Rapture, Tribulation & Resurrection
We believe Jesus, the Lord Himself, will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive [and] remain shall be caught up (raptured) together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
We believe God’s wrath is to come upon all people who dwell on the earth, who are the sons of disobedience (rejecters of Jesus Christ).
† Luke 21:36 “Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
† John 3:18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
† John 8:24 “Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am [He], you will die in your sins.”
We believe Jesus is the resurrection and the life. Anyone in Christ will live, though he may die physically.
† John 5:28-29 “Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth–those who have done good (trusted in Jesus), to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil (rejected Jesus), to theresurrection of condemnation.”
† John 11:25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.”
