Rapture - Meaning

Bible Questions Answered:
“There is no such word as rapture in the bible, and that means, there is no such thing as the rapture!...”
Ken/ Quedlinburg, Germany (Saxony Anhalt)

Bible Answer:

Bible Text:

That is the Truth, there is no such word as “rapture,” in The Word Of God.

Here is where the word rapture is derived.

I Thessalonians 4:13-18 KJV
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him.
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.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

*Caught – Greek: Harpazo (Har-pad'-zo): To seize: Catch (away up), take (by force).
In Latin this is translated as “Rapture.” To Snatch,” or “Seize.”

Hence our use of the word “rapture.”

The Apostle Paul's writing to the Corinthians.

I Corinthians 15:20-23 KJV
20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become The Firstfruits of them that slept.
21 For since by man (Adam) came death, by man (Second Adam- Christ) came also the resurrection of the dead.
22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
23 But every man in his own order: Christ The Firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at His coming.

I Corinthians 15:51-58 KJV
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.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of
The Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in The Lord.

One day soon, will be the great catching away, the rapture of the church of The Lord Jesus Christ.
The most important question today is, do you believe in The Lord Jesus, God's Son. Have you claimed Him as your Savior, repenting, and forsaking sin?
Your sins may be forgiven, and cleansed by The Blood of God's Lamb?

Nehemiah 9:17 KJV
"...but thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness..."

Isaiah 1:18 KJV
Come now, and let us reason together, saith The Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

John 3:16,17,36 KJV
16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.
36 He that believeth on The Son hath everlasting Life: and he that believeth not The Son shall not see Life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
