Misplaced Rapture (1 Corinthians 4:13-17)Dr. Sylvester Williams, June 7, 2015
1 Thessalonians 4:1-18
1 Thessalonians 4:13-17
The rapture is not in the Bible, the word that is used is caught up. A lot of people think that once saved always saved. But that is misplaced rapture. We need to know and understand how and what the rapture is.
Up to 80% of people that are being persecuted are of the Christian Faith and it is not being reported y the news media or any other outlet.
How many of us can make a real commitment to Christ Jesus? How much do you Love God? Do you love God enough to go to different countries and preach and praise God just like you do here? When you say that you are Christian, that means that you are Christ like. He was beaten, his beard was plucked out, he was pierced in the side.
Are you willing to go through all this because you are a Christian? Christ Jesus has done it for you.
If you follow Christ you will live again.... If you are in God's will you don't have to worry about any thing coming in this world. You have to learn to rejoice in your trials and tribulations.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
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. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
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. 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: 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. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
1 Corinthians 12:24-26
For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
1 Corinthians 12:26
And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.
1 Timothy 6:9
But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
1 Thessalonians 5:9
For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.
1 Thessalonians 3:10
Night and day praying exceedingly that we might see your face, and might perfect that which is lacking in your faith?
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
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.
