Does the Bible really teach that we should be waiting for the beginning of the Great Tribulation? Is there any evidence in the Scriptures that caution us to prepare for the coming of the Antichrist?
Using the Bible as his source, you will find the answers to these and many other questions regarding the Rapture of the Church. The Great Mystery of the Rapture is an exhaustive, comprehensive examination of the words and verses supporting what will be an unprecedented occurrence. The author cites scriptural references that in no uncertain terms point to an event specifically designed for those who believe. An event which we should be expecting and looking for with great anticipation.
While the Bible does not specifically identify the exact time that this event will take place, we are repeatedly admonished to wait in joyful hope for the coming of our Savior. The Great Mystery of the Rapture is laid out in a biblical word study format. Each word or verse relating to the Rapture of the Church is dissected in such a way as to greater prove that the doctrine is in fact taught in the Scriptures.
Words and terms that may have seemed irrelevant or unimportant are brought to life in this biblically sound work of Christian apologetics. We've all read 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 and 1 Corinthians 15:51-54 hundreds of times, but have we glossed over the important words and phrases instead of examining their depth?
Find out why the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven. First Corinthians 15:52 speaks about the "last trump of God" but when was the "first trump of God?" What is the "mystery" that Paul is talking about? What is the difference between the "trump of God" and the "last trump of God" What eschatological view fits with the whole of Scripture?
Independently, these terms may seem insignificant; however, collectively, these words speak volumes. The Great Mystery of the Rapture is a labor of love designed to edify those in the Church of Jesus Christ who anxiously await the return of the Lord. At the same time, it is a scholarly work that will convince even the skeptic.
