Hello folks, I pray for all reading this post, that God blesses you and protects you from evil. Amen
The bible can be confusing if you just read a passage and try to make sense of it without first reading the rest of the bible. Some of bible scripture must be compared to scripture found in other places in the bible to make sense. It also helps to study the times and culture of Israel during the times of Christ. Also study the Jewish wedding feasts. They correlate to God’s plan for the church, including the rapture.
For instance in Matthew chapter 24, the Olivet Discourse. When Jesus tells his disciples what the signs of his coming will be. Jesus speaks of what the world will be like during his “second coming”, but also of the “rapture” of the church. Two different events. This is where most Christians are thrown off. This is why it is so vitally important to study all scripture, compare scripture, study with partners and learn from biblical scholars. Ask the Lord to guide you and show you the truth.
