Return To:  Rapture Not In The Bible?
Church of God, New World Ministries

The "Rapture" does not exist anywhere in YOUR Bible!

“Even the newscasters’ voices were terror-filled, as much as they tried to mask it. Every conceivable explanation was proffered, but overshadowing all such discussions and even coverage of the carnage were the principle aspects…. Thousands were dead in plane crashes and car pileups. Emergency crews were trying to clear expressways and runways, all the while grieving over loved ones and coworkers who had disappeared. One report said that so many cabbies had disappeared from the cab corral at O’Hare that volunteers were being brought in to move the cars that had been left running with the former drivers’ clothes still on the seats.” And so begins a gripping tale set in the seven years preceding the return of Jesus. Leroy Jenkins, with the help of his mentor Dr. Timothy Lahaye, has invented an elaborate but fictional plot centering around the prophetic events described in the apocalyptic passages of the Bible, principally the book of Revelation: the Great Tribulation, Armageddon, and the return of Jesus.

Messrs. Jenkins and Lahaye have become multimillionaires by tapping into the fears and expectations of evangelical Christians. They’re the authors of a twelve-volume series entitled Left Behind. The first book, Left Behind: A Novel of the Earth’s Last Days, opens with a description of the mysterious Rapture: 142 million people worldwide simply and suddenly vanish, leaving behind (hence the title) their clothes, their family, their friends, their coworkers. This event triggers the chaos described in the opening paragraph. “In one cataclysmic moment, millions around the globe disappear. Vehicles, suddenly unmanned, careen out of control. People are terror-stricken as loved ones vanish before their eyes. In the midst of global chaos, airline captain Rayford Steele must search for his family, for answers, for truth. As devastating as the disappearances have been, the darkest days may lie ahead!”

Eleven books followed this first installment. They describe seven years of misery, intrigue, and destruction; in short, they describe the Great Tribulation. By page 110 of book 3, American cities have been vaporized by nuclear explosions. “Is That Really In There?” Seriously, have you ever taken the time to look for the word RAPTURE in the Bible? It isn’t in there. You can’t find it. What does the Bible really say about this subject?
