Q. I noticed that you said in another article that the dead bodies of believers won’t be brought back to life at the rapture. I don’t understand because both I Thessalonians 4 and I Corinthians 15 say “the dead in Christ shall rise first.”If their bodies won’t be brought back to life how do the dead rise?
Q. How does grace after the Rapture work? The Holy Spirit is removed from the Earth, so what are the conditions of being saved during that time? Do those left behind still simply have to confess and believe that the Lord died for the sins? Or is it something different? Something more?
Q. What happens to those people left behind after the rapture? Who are those who pay with their lives for rejecting the mark of the beast?
Q. I have read your Union and fellowship theory, but am still bothered. When you are in the unchangeable union with God and the Holy spirit is bestowed upon you as he promised, but your fellowship is infrequent (being human) will you still be raptured considering the fact that you are not holy as a result of sin? If yes, people would have the idea that they can sin but would still be raptured. Please explain. I find this disturbing.
Q. I know that believers will live in the Garden of Eden in eternity. Will we do creative things in eternity like art and building things or something we enjoyed from earth or will all of that cease to exist forever with us having no memory or desire of it? I can’t stand the notion of all things being absorbed or losing the ability to be creative. That is a crappy view of eternity and for that reason I don’t have hardly any belief at all. I believe creative endeavors and desires continue.
Q. Will our earthly bodies be changed into glorified bodies, or will our earthly bodies be left here on earth when we are raptured, while we are then given new glorified bodies. This question has an effect on dead believers’ bodies, too. Will their dead earthly bodies be resurrected and changed to glorified bodies, or will the dead bodies just remain on earth while their spirits are given new glorified bodies?
Q. Where are those who died before Christ? Such as David, Moses, or any Jew or gentile ( assuming that they were saved). Are their spirits with the Lord? And will they be reunited with bodies at The Rapture like The Church dead will be? I read that The Rapture is for The Church solely. Yet from my own studies I can’t find out . All I am clear on is that The Church , both the living and the dead, will be raised and caught up.
O LORD, remember David and all the hardships he endured. He swore an oath to the LORD and made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob: “I will not enter my house or go to my bed- I will allow no sleep to my eyes, no slumber to my eyelids, till I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”
My heart is not proud, O LORD, my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. But I have stilled and quieted my soul; like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me. O Israel, put your hope in the LORD both now and forevermore.
Q. Since the devil knows the Bible, does he know what the rapture means and could he be trying to rush it, slow it, or is he not concerned?
