Was Jesus Hinting At The Rapture?

Q.  I have been doing a study in the Gospel of John and when I came across John 11:21-26 my curiosity was piqued.  Are Jesus’ words to Martha in verses 25-26 hinting at the Rapture?

“Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.”

What Do They Look Like?

Q. I`ve learned more from your website about the endtimes than all my 60 years of SS combined.   I`ve learned about our residence (new Jerusalem) after the rapture.  But not much is said about where we  immediately go when we die and are we just invisible spirits w/o bodies. I think you have said Jesus is the only one in heaven with a glorified body so far. Does John 14 and Rev. 21 describe heaven before the rapture as well as after?

Jesus And The Rapture

Q.  I recently came across your site and I truly appreciate your gift of interpreting Gods Word.  It has helped me, more specifically on understanding the Rapture and events leading up to the Rapture.  My question is that is John 5:25-29 referencing the Rapture?  I did a quick search of your site but found nothing identifying these verses.  I look forward to your response.

What Does If Mean? Follow Up

Q.  1 Cor. 15:2 says,  “By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.”  This is a different “if” than the one you explained in your article “What Does If Mean?”  The “if” used here is primary article of conditionality.  Can you explain the “conditionality” of this “if”?

Raptured With The Dead Or Later?

Q.  I recently read an article that stated that the rapture of “we who are alive and remain” would not occur immediately after the dead in Christ are resurrected, but instead we would be raptured 40 days after the dead in Christ come out of their graves. The article stated that the example for this is from Christ’s resurrection at the same time that believers came out of the tombs.  He ascended and took them with him 40 days later and that is the model for the rapture of the church. What is your opinion?  Is it possible we will be on earth for 40 days after the dead in Christ are resurrected?
