The Bible Clearly States that 1 Cor. 15:51,52 is not about the Rapture

In 2 Peter 3:10, Peter tells us that at the second coming of Christ, the heavens will be destroyed:

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up

Job 14:12 tells us that the dead will not rise again until the heavens are destroyed:

So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep

1 Cor. 15:51-54 tells us what happens when people rise up from being dead and the resurrection comes:

Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.   For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.  So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.  O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

The pretrib doctrine attempts to tell us contrary to the Word of God that people will rise up from death and that a rapture happens prior to the heavens being destroyed.  That is contrary to the Word.

Jesus tells us that no man knows the day or the hour of when the heavens are destroyed… not a “rapture!”  Matt. 24:35,36:

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.  But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

The pretrib doctrine consistently tells us that no man knows the day or the hour of the rapture.  That is purposeful misrepresentation of the Word of God.  Jesus defines the unknown, and the unknown is when the heavens are destroyed that no man knows the day or the hour.  Peter informs us that this time of the heavens being destroyed is the second coming.

The idea of a multiple return of Christ such as the idea of a pretrib rapture is conjured out of thin air, and the concept does not exist in the Word of God.

  1. This verse pertains to the event after the millennium and right before the white throne judgement. It is clearly stated in Rev. 20:11-12,

    11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the EARTH and the HEAVEN fled away; and there was found no place for them.

    12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

    13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

    14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

    15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

    This could only mean that the Trumpet Judgement happens at the end of the millennium; the millennium could then be the seventh seal; the sixth seal could mean the great tribulation which the bowls judgement and the second advent will happen.

    Here are the key words you need to find out where one single event happens to other major event:

    1. The Angel from the Abyss (Rev. 20, Rev. 9, Rev. 10)
    2. Those who don’t have the Seal of God (144,000 who follows Jesus wherever he goes even up to the end of the millennium)
    3. The time for judging the dead (Rev.11, Rev.20)
    4. The Angel and the Little Scroll as compared to The Scroll and the Lamb
    5. The Two Witnesses prophesying at the end of the millennium (Exodus Part 2 again for Israel)
    6. Ezekiel 38 happens at the end of the Millennium; Remnant Israel living in safety, having no walls, recovered from armageddon)
    7. Ezekiel 39 happens at armageddon; keywords are the great supper prepared by God for the carrion birds.
    8. every island and mountains fled away/removed from its place; found in Rev. 6 and Rev. 16
    9. The Bride raptured between the sixth bowl and the seventh bowl because of Rev. 21 about the one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls judgement who was tasked to introduced to John the Bride maybe because he is the one who witnessed among the other angels the rapture.

    God Bless.
