Question? What is a Partial Rapture a youtube preacher made it sound so convincing, what is your take on it?
This is a FALSE TEACHING that some believe that ONLY the “Faithful” christians will be taken at the Rapture while the “Unfaithful” christians will have to suffer through the seven year tribulation.
The PROBLEM with this is that Scripture DOES NOT support this ERRONEOUS interpretation.
TAKE NOTE of what 1 Corinthians 15:5 says…
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed.
Take Notice of the “Key Word”… ALL, This INCLUDES every christian whether Faithful Unfaithful. Disobedient, Immature, or otherwise.
Every christian WILL BE RAPTURED as V52 and 1 Thessalonians 4:16, & 17 states…
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
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 dead in Christ shall rise first: (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.
Proponents of the “Partial Rapture” theology TRY IN VAIN to claim that the Parable of the Ten Virgins in Mathew Chp. 25 teaches a SO CALLED Partial Rapture.
The Parable of the Ten Virgins is about 5 Virgins who’s lamps had oil (referring to having the Holy Spirit – SAVED) These ARE Believers, and the other 5 Virgins who had NO OIL in their lamps (no Holy Spirit – LOST) these ARE Unsaved people, The Key Verse is V12 where Jesus says…
Matthew 25:12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
The lesson here for us is to BE READY and a person DOES THAT by Trusting in Christ ALONE as the ONLY PAYMENT for their sins, BECAUSE Jesus Christ is coming again SOON and ONLY THOSE who have trusted Christ as their personal saviour WILL be taken and those that HAVE NOT will be Left Behind to suffer through the Seven Year Tribulation..
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.
The moment that you do YOU HAVE (at that second and forever) Everlasting Life which WILL NEVER be taken away no matter what.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
