The word “rapture” is not a word of God, and is not in the Authorized King James Version of the Holy Bible.
At the apex of time, the first man, Adam and woman, Eve did not believe EVERY word of God.
“The LORD God commanded the man, saying, of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” (Genesis 2:16–17).
“And the serpent said unto the woman, ‘Ye shall not surely die’” (Genesis 3:4).
Here is the deception: the “crooked serpent” (Job 26:10), the devil, aka Satan stated correctly to Eve, “Yea, hath God said, ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” However, the statement “Ye shall not surely die” was not what God told Adam. These words were a lie! The words of God are truth!
We must believe EVERY word of God because they are pure and forever (Proverbs 30:5) (Matthew 24:35).
Jesus, the only begotten Son of God says: “It is written, that man shall not live by bread alone, but by [EVERY] word of God” (Luke 4:4).
The word “rapture” is an idle word. Just do a search on any search engine, and there will be numerous results on this word which is wrought with confusion! There is no confusion in the word God:
“The LORD gave the word: great was the company of those that published it” (Psalm 68:11). “The LORD God hath spoken, who can but prophesy?” (Amos 3:8). “For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little” (Isaiah 28:10).
Jesus warns, saying: “But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the Day of Judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned” (Matthew 12:36-37).
“He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the Last Day” (John 12:48).
