    When the rapture comes does believed who died in ocean or the believers in the graves or live believers. I have a friend said the ones who died at sea will go up first. I told him all believers who die will raise first then all alive believers are last in the rapture. Thank you

    The dead will be raised first. It doesn't matter where their bodies are; ocean, fires, murdered and hidden. In Genesis, Abel's blood called out to God. God knows where His children are.

    The BORN AGAIN Living Believers are raised next. The handicapped people will be whole and perfect. If their minds are impaired, they will be made perfect. Let's evangelize everyone and allow God to be the judge. Amen?

    Hello, I'm sure you're familiar with 1 Thessalonians 4:17 and Luke 17:34-37. Since people use the word rapture to describe what those passages say, and since those verses are in the Bible, what do you mean when you say its not in the Bible? Thank you.

    I hope you don't mind our dialogue.


    1st I respect like 99.9% = of your teaching, doctrine, insite & rightly dividing The Truth in your discussions & answering questions. The word "rapture" is not in the WORD of GOD that I have found thus far & it has been a subject of false teachings. Some lead the sheep to believe they will not suffer anything. I think the "great falling away" may even be part of this. 2 Thessalonians 2:3

    I try to stick to the WORD itself. If you read my scriptural references I've included many scriptures about those two referenced scriptures. 1 Thessalonians 4:17, I feel it irresponsible not to included teaching about the subject in as much depth as available to not mislead but rather help each person themselves study to understand & therefore helping them follow GOD & indepth teachings of Jesus CHRIST, our Savior: by developing in themselves a knowledge of Truth & rightly dividing The truth. 2 Timothy 2:15, We do not know how long we will be available to each person we encounter, therefore why not give the WORD as abundantly as we can in each moment?

    1 Thessalonians 4:17, isn't this the same "gathering" that is spoken of in 2 Thessalonians 2:1, being the 2nd letter to the Thessalonians & addressing "not be shaken or troubled" 2 Thessalonians 2:2, then addresses "let no man deceive you by any means" George, Please read 2 Thessalonians 2,

    Luke 17, I think in fairness: George, please read in context : Luke 17:20-37.

    Please also read the scriptures I noted previously.

    Thank you Adam those are also important scriptures I didn't realize I had left those out, until you noted them.

    Peace my Brother Adam.
