There was a time in my life when I did not read the Bible very much. I was seeking Yeshua (Jesus) but in all the wrong places. I only visited different Christian religious events. They were very entertaining to spend my time- but the Bible were in bit part. Preaching and teaching was lousy, very lousy. On the other hand, collecting money was very intensive. After all, there I realized that if I want to know the truth in the Bible, I have to read it. Regularly, often and much. I started with Yeshua`s (Jesus`) words in the 4 gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke & John.
The term "rapture" is used nowhere in the Bible. The Christian false teaching the "rapture before tribulation"- often called "the blessed hope"- is more hoax than hope and it is absolutely not biblical. It is the teaching of a pre-tribulation, pre-Antichrist, pre-mark of the Beast rapture of the Christian Church to heaven. It sounds nice and is very pleasing to the flesh, but undermines God's purposes for His end-time Congregation. It has created a people who are not prepared to face persecution and the difficult times ahead. It has also robbed a sense of urgency for believers to get themselves ready to give answers to the unsaved. True followers of Yeshua (Jesus) should want to be here as long as possible in order to win as many to Yeshua (Jesus) as possible.
