Matt 24:37-41 Read all,

note vs 37, and 39, "so shall" meaning in the same way...

vs 39 in particular "And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away,
so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."

So the answer is given in vs 39. It is not the believer who is taken away, just as Noah and family were not taken away

'Left Behind' is just that - A STORY!

The Movie does contradicts the Bible.

Impossible to give Scripture for the 'Left Behind' THEORY because it isn't based on Scripture.

Jesus never said I will return again and a half.

NO DRIVE THRU for Salvation.

It's a movie, therefore it will not be 100% correct.

"Man figures a way to get good people into heaven - it took God to find a way to get sinners in.---Andrea on 9/23/07"
I love this statement. "Pro 16:23 - The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips." Amen

I have a hard time thinking of CS Lewis as intrinsically evil, when so many people found God through his book, not a novel, 'Mere Christianity'. His stories are uplifting, do not dwell on the black arts, and certainly do not do what Rowlings does in turning evil (sorcery) into good and attractive for children. The fact that Steveng dislikes CS Lewis should stand as a point in favour of the author.

Did you read the book :" Left Behind and Glad of it?" This so-called "Rapture" is a hoax perpetrated by a scripture where Yeshua warned people not to grab things on that DAY, but to flee into the mountains.Two shall be grinding at the mill, one shall be taken and the other left. What this means is, the one taken into the Kingdom,(the Angels are reaping,) is the true Saint and had prepared herself/himself for His coming. She is not secretly raptured away to watch sinners burn up from Heaven. Read both the Old and the New Testament and prove things for yourself.

I would say it is contradictory to scripture. Here is a list of texts that describe the 2nd coming of Jesus. Judge for yourself. John 14:1-3, Acts 1:9-11, Jude 14, Ps 50:3, Rev 1:7, Matt 24:27, 1 Thess 4:16-17, 1 Cor 15:51-54, Matt 16: 27, Rev 6:14-17, Matt 13:37-43, Isa 25:9, Rev 19:11-16, Rev 19:11-16, Titus 2:13, Rev 22:11-12, 17-20

joseph - yes - like a said the real thing.

you know from whence you came. I never go far from the day He saved me - a blaspheming atheist - He didn't clean me up first - loved me right where I was. I try to do no less.

Man figures a way to get good people into heaven - it took God to find a way to get sinners in.

Christians are turning away from the truth, and believing in fables." Christians today are believing stories, fables, novels instead of the truth. Any form of fiction are fables which include the Left Behind novels, C.S. Lewis novels, etc. These only create more confusion, debates and conspiracies among Christians. Nor to pay attention to myths and endless genealogies, which give rise to mere speculation. We are to discipline ourself for the purpose of godliness, to Love God and love our neighbors.

It just depends of if you believe in post-trib or pre-trib. I never said it was going to happen twice.

Just like the pre-millennium, post-millennium, or A-millennium.

Personally I believe in the pan-melinneum. God has it all figured out and it's all going to pan out in the end. I'm going to be gone anyway so I'm not concerned either way.

Andrea thank you for your compliment, It would be nice if I could take credit.

"Joseph what's your background?"

One lost in the wilderness, yet sustained by grace. One blinded by carnality, yet given sight through the Father's love and enlightenment.

Ann, according to Jesus recorded in Luke, the ones left behind are the ones that died. This occurred already during the fall of Jerusalem. There will be more tribulations, but Jesus prayed for His Father to NOT take us out of this world but instead to protect us from the evil one. John 17:15. Revelation is in code and may be unclear to some. But Jesus was pretty clear.
---lorra8574 on 9/22/07

Denna, that passage by Paul is not about a pretrib rapture but the end of days. We all believe that will occur. But few believe that it is going to occure twice. And no where in the scriptures does it say that this will happen twice.

The ones that are left behind are the ones that didn't accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and the ones who took the mark of the beast. I think the scripture is in Rev. don't remember the chapter or verse, but I know its in there.

Let's see here:

1 Thessalonians 4:17 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 Greek harpazo -- pronounced: har-pad'-zo KJV -- catch (away, up), pluck, pull, take (by force).
---denna7667 on 9/22/07

The coming of the Lord is likened to the days of Noah. When God was finished flooding the earth (which He won't do again), the wicked were taken and the righteous were left. No one but a righteous man, his household, and the animals left. In the work of Christ, the judgment of God upon the world took the wicked (Adam) and left the righteous (Christ) standing on resurrection day. No old man Adam or serpent in God's garden today...and we are God's garden.

Pt.2 and go forth as witnesses against it. Mk.13:9,14 "But take heed to yourselves, for they shall deliver you up to councils, and in the synagogues you shall be beaten: And you shall be brought before rulers and kings for My sake, for a testimony against them.

"Who is really taken away?" The deceived. The taken associate themselves with, receive and offer themselves to the deceiver. Lk.17:34 "I tell you in that 'night' there shall be two men in one bed, the one shall be taken, and the other left." Verse 37. Disciples question "Where, Lord" Jesus' answer "Wheresoever the body (corpse) is, there will the eagles (vultures) be gathered together." "Who is left behind?"

Luke 17:37, follows the identical warning given in Matthew 24, but this time the question is asked - where Lord, where are they taken? "Taken" is a common euphemism for death. Ever heard the phrase, "The Lord took him", when referring to someone who died? During the fall of Jerusalem (which is what most of Matthew 24 is describing), many died, but the Christians escaped by heading Jesus' warning.

Basically, based upon scripture, I definitely want to be left behind. But, of course, that is not all there is.

John 17:15 "I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil."

If Jesus wants us to stay in the world, then why would God refuse such a prayer and rapture us up ahead of our time. Jesus wants God to protect us from evil and strengthen us to ensure.
---lorra8574 on 9/20/07

Matthew 10:22 "And ye shall be hated of all [men] for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved."

So who came up with the silly idea that God would want to rapture us up in a secret rapture? Certainly it did not come from the scriptures.

All of the left Behind Books and any movie story line are total works of fiction and have no valid theological basis. There is no such thing as a Pre or Mid tribulation Rapture. The Post tribulation event has never been referred to as Rapture. People will not go any where, Christ is coming here to establish his new earthly kingdom. Rapture is a mith started by Charles Darby in the 1830s - 40s.
