The victoria’s secret rapture doctrine teaches that the approaching of Jesus shall be in two separate phases. The primary, a secret rapture of the Church at first of a seven yr tribulation interval adopted by His superb, audible, triumphant return to Earth accompanied by the Church on the finish of the seven years.
It additionally teaches that in this seven-year interval the Antichrist goes to come back into energy, sit in a rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem and declare himself to be God. It says that the warfare of Armageddon is a literal warfare of countries towards literal Israel, which happens close to the tip of the seven years and is ended abruptly by Christ’s return with His Church. It says that literal Israel accepts the Lord because the Messiah and enters with Him as His covenant folks into the 1000-year reign on earth. Those that in the end reject Christ’s rule shall be judged and destroyed on the finish of the Millennium.
Is that this what the Bible actually reveals?
In Matthew 28:20 Jesus mentioned “…and, lo, I’m with you alway, even unto the tip of the world.” Why would He promise to be with the church till the ‘finish of the world’ if He meant to come back seven years earlier than the tip to take them out of the world?
The Bible reveals clearly that God’s church will nonetheless be on earth when Jesus returns. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the useless in Christ shall rise first: Then we that are alive and stay shall be caught up along with them within the clouds, to fulfill the Lord within the air: and so we could ever be with the Lord.”
It reveals that when Jesus returns His angels will collect His folks from the earth. Matthew 24:31 “And he shall ship his angels with an excellent sound of a trumpet, and so they shall collect collectively his elect from the 4 winds, from one finish of heaven to the opposite.” How may they collect the church from the earth if the church had come again with Christ?
Each eye will see Jesus when He returns. This consists of the entire non-believers and the entire believers. Revelation 1:7 “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and each eye shall see him, and so they additionally which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail due to him. Even so, Amen.”
The Bible reveals that His return shall be sudden, and surprising for unbelievers and those that haven’t studied His prophecies. 1 Thessalonians 5:2-3 says “For yourselves know completely that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief within the night time. For once they shall say, Peace and security; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a girl with youngster; and so they shall not escape.” This verse additionally reveals that the unbelievers shall be destroyed when Jesus returns.
When the Lord returns there shall be nothing secret about it. The useless in Christ will rise first, these of us who’ve overcome the time of tribulation and persecution and are nonetheless alive shall be caught as much as meet Him within the sky. The entire unbelievers shall be destroyed and the earth will soften. 2 Peter 3:12 “Searching for and hasting unto the approaching of the day of God, whereby the heavens being on hearth shall be dissolved, and the weather shall soften with fervent warmth?”
We are going to then go together with Him to heaven the place we’ll reign for a thousand years and the books shall be opened and we’ll choose the nations. Revelation 20:4-5 “And I noticed thrones, and so they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I noticed the souls of them that had been beheaded for the witness of Jesus (positively reveals that they had been on earth through the tribulation), and for the phrase of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his picture, neither had acquired his mark upon their foreheads, or of their arms; and so they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. However the remainder of the useless lived not once more till the thousand years had been completed. That is the primary resurrection.”
