Q & A: How Can I Explain The Rapture?

How Can I Explain The Rapture?
Ask a Bible Teacher
by Jack Kelley

Question: My father is a saved Christian, but he doesn't believe in the Rapture. In fact, his aunt, who is devout and knows the Bible well, explained to him why there isn't one. How can use Scripture to prove to him there is in fact a Rapture. I've pointed out 1 Thess 4, Rev 4, and Isaiah 26:20, but how do I put all of them together to prove it to him?

Answer: The purpose of the Rapture of the Church is to hide us away and protect us from the End Times Judgments. This is stated clearly in 1 Thes. 1:9-10 & 5:9, Rev. 3:10 and Isaiah 26:19-21.

If you read my 3 part series entitled "The 7 Things You Have To Know To Understand End Times Prophecy" you'll find that item 3, "The Length and Purpose of the Great Tribulation" and item 4 "The Purpose of the Rapture" will give you a good general explanation. Here's a link to the series. Items 3 and 4 are in Part 2, but I'm sending you to Part 1 so you can read the whole series. http://www.gracethrufaith.com/ikvot/seven-things-you-have-to-know-to-understand-end-times-prophecy-part-1

Since arguments against the Rapture ar usually based in a misinterpretation of Scripture, the best chance you'll have in persuading him is to explain your great Aunt's views on why there's no rapture to me. Then I can help you refute her argument point by point rather than try to persuade your father with a general presentation.
