June 11, 2022 | The Resurrection of the Church: Reflections on the Rapture (Rebroadcast)

This program is a rebroadcast from October 24, 2020.

The Rapture

The Rapture is overlooked or purposely avoided by many today. This might leave you asking, “Is the Rapture really that important? Does the Bible even tell us anything definite about it?” You bet! The Rapture is a huge part of biblical prophecy and one of our greatest hopes as believers, and God’s Word tells us all we need to know as we anticipate its coming. First Thessalonians 4 speaks of the Rapture by describing believers being caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. But the context that prompted Paul to write this might surprise you.

By sharing biblical facts about the body, the Thessalonian believers, and the resurrection, Chris sets the record straight on what Scripture teaches about the Rapture in this week’s program. With pertinent information from Greek culture, he fills in the gaps in our knowledge with much-needed context. Find refreshment in this study of the resurrection of the church—the Rapture.

Chris explains why resurrection matters in this short video:

Maranatha: Our Lord, Come!

Dr. Renald Showers’s study of the Rapture is a treasure trove of biblical wisdom. In it he discusses prophetic topics such as the Day of the Lord, the Time of Jacob’s Trouble, the 70 weeks of Daniel, and so much more. 

An extensively detailed book loved by biblical scholars, Maranatha: Our Lord, Come! answers all your questions about the Rapture, assuring you that we who believe in Him will meet Him in the air as His Word says!


Apples of Gold: No One Will Remember Her

Everyone fears death, but death cannot be avoided. That was the subject of conversation among Zvi and his neighbors when an elderly woman in their neighborhood died. Many were lamenting her passing and how she had no money or children to ensure that her memory would live on. But there was hope for her soul. Hear how Zvi used this opportunity to speak about the Messiah and the secure future he could look forward to because of his belief in Jesus.

  1. ALL prophecy should matter and especially the rapture. It is the blessed hope of the believer in Christ. There is NO doubt that the Bible teaches a pretribulational rapture. An excellent resource, the definitive resource is The Rapture Question by John Walvoord, also a good reference Maranatha, Our Lord Come by FOI’s own Renald Showers.

  2. The pretrib rapture can be found in the gospel of John. He who believes in Me and dies shall live forever and he who remains and believes in Me shall never die. I think this is a quote from the Gospel of John.
