Good Job Richard you are the closest to what's going to happen. Rebbeca, The New Jerusalem will descend from Heaven & the waters(rivers) that will flow from the throne will give life to the Dead Sea & the Fruit & Leaves that grows on both sides of that River,will be used to heal the Earth from all it's destruction, So come help us!

First the rapture occurs where Jesus takes the church away. Then there are seven years of tribulation where the anti-christ will have full reign. After the anti-christ is revealed and the seven years end, Jesus and the raptured Saints will return to earth. The Battle of Armageddon will then take place. We know who wins. Then Jesus will set up His kingdom here on earth.

Before you try to teach the Bible to others, you should first read the Third Chapter of John and learn what it is to be born again.

The of Battle of Armageddon will be a little bit more prominent than you would be giving it credit for had it already occurred.

Ramon, to answer your question so as not to be accused of dodging it, the Father's house is the church. If the Father's house is the church, which Christ is building by the way, then what do you think the mansions are? Houses somewhere? Know ye not that ye are the temple of the Holy Ghost? What do I make of Revelation 19:7-16? It's the revelation (unveiling) of Christ in His body. What do you think is served at the marriage supper? Lamb. I eat of Him every day.

Lina.#3 According to Revelation 19:7-10, The Marriage Supper of the Lamb occur. Thereby, the Church has alreadly been "Rapture". The event of 1 Thes 4:17 alreadly occurred. How is this possible if we be forever with the Lord in the Air only?

Revelation 19:11-14 states that Jesus will come with His Army from Heaven. Who is the Army? The Army are the saints (cf. 17:14) (The Church). Its logical then to conclude that 1 Thes 4:17 has alreadly occurred. The Marriage Supper alreadly occurred.
---Ramon on 5/19/07


Lina. #4 3) What do you do with Revelation 20:4-6? These Scriptures states the 1,000 years reign of Christ. How is this possible if you say Jesus will never reign on earth with His kingdom?

4) What do you do with Revelation 21:9-27 which states the New Jerusalem coming down from Heaven to resides on the new Earth. How is this possible if we will be with the Lord in the Air forever?

You can't have it both ways Lina. Either you in the Air forever or not.
---Ramon on 5/19/07


Lina #5 You state that God's Kingdom is not a future event, then what do you do with Revelation 21:9-27?

*I knew when I wrote it that it would bother the die-hard rapturists.*

If you believe in 1 Thes 4:17 then you believe the Rapture. Did you know the word "Rapture" is derived from the Latin word "raptu", which means "caught away or caught up."? This Latin word is equivalent to the Greek "harpaze," translated as "caught up" in 1 Thes 4:17.
---Ramon on 5/19/07


Lina.#2 Here are some questions. I know you will dodge the questions. After all, you are a "anti-rupturist".

1) Jesus states that His Father's house have many mansions, and He will go to prepare a place for us (John 14:1-3). Is "The Father's house" in the Air? Is His mansions which is prepare for us in the Air? Is Heaven, where God-resides in the Air?

2) What do you do with Revelation 19:7-16?
---Ramon on 5/19/07


Lina. Please stop twisting and changing God's Word to fit your man-made doctrine.

You have to read Scriptures carefully and know "Grammar". First 1 Thes 4:17 states that we will be caught up in the clouds. Second, we meet the Lord in the Air.The Scripture then states we be with the Lord forever.

IT DOES NOT SAY WE WILL BE WITH THE LORD FOREVER IN THE AIR!
---Ramon on 5/19/07




This is not the battle of Arageddon yet because we have not yet seen the appearence of the antichrist. That must happen first no matter when or if a rapture occurs. Some do not believe in a rapture at all. This belief will not affect salvation. No sense in arguing. Reality is as it is no matter who believes what. In answer to the question, Armageddon hasn't happened. It will happen sometime AFTER we see the antichrist.
---jody on 5/19/07


"Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord IN THE AIR: and SO SHALL WE EVER BE WITH THE LORD."

Caught up in the clouds but meeting the Lord in the air. And so shall we ever be with the Lord where? In the air according to this Scripture. Not worth an argument though. I knew when I wrote it that it would bother the die-hard rapturists.

I don't know about anyone else, but I don't want to come back to this earth once I'm gone. God promised me the New Jerusalem. And this earth will pass away and God will make a new one.
---Rebecca_D on 5/18/07


* Richard, if what you say is true, then how can Thessalonians say that we will ever be with the Lord caught up in the air and Revelation say that we come back to earth with Jesus to set up His kingdom.*

We will certainty be with Christ forever! However, The Rapture occurs prior to the Seven Years Tribulation. Revelation 19:7-10 describes that Marriage Supper of the Lamb; the Church is alreadly in heaven and it is the saints that come with Jesus (Rev 19:14.
---Ramon on 5/18/07


#2 *Either we are ever with Him in the air or we all come back to earth. . . you cannot have both.*

Sorry, but saying that we will be with Lord "ever" does not cancel out anything. Second, 1 Thess.4:17 states that we will be with the Lord forever, not that we will be with the Lord forever in the air. There's a difference.

Third, the Kingdom is certainty in our hearts, but Scriptures makes it clear that Jesus will establish His Kingdom on earth (Rev 20:4-6; Rev 21:9-27).
---Ramon on 5/18/07


#3 Revelation 20:4-6 describes the 1,000 years reign ("The Millennium"). There is nothing in the text to render the conclusion that "a thousand years" is symbolic. This was predicted in the OT (Is 9:6; 65:19-25; Dan 7:13-14; Mic 4:1-8; Zech 14:1-9; cf. Rev 2:25-28).

Revelation 21:9-27 describes the New Jerusalem descending out of heaven from God after the earth and heaven have been destroyed with fire (2 Pet 3:7). Thereby, your conclusion is unsupported within Scriptures.

Linda Thessalonians does not say we will ever be with the Lord in the "AIR." It says, and so we shall ever be with the Lord.
I Thess 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 dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Why will Jesus take away the church? And, why dosen't the devil just give up? He must know God will win in the end...
---sue on 5/18/07


Richard, if what you say is true, then how can Thessalonians say that we will ever be with the Lord caught up in the air and Revelation say that we come back to earth with Jesus to set up His kingdom. Either we are ever with Him in the air or we all come back to earth. Because of that word "ever", you cannot have both taking place. I say to you that the kingdom of God is within you and needs to come out of you, not some time in the future but right now.
