THE RAPTURE AND YOUR CHILDREN
What can we expect when we are raptured?
Revelation 21:3-5 (NIRV) God now makes his home with the people. He will live with them. They will be his people. And God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death.’ (Isaiah 25:8) And there will be no more sadness. There will be no more crying or pain. Things are no longer the way they used to be. He who was sitting on the throne said, “I am making everything new!”
During the Great Tribulation, those raptured:
- Spend time with Jesus.
- Reunite with loved ones.
Philippians 1:21 (NIV) To live is Christ and to die is gain.
Heaven is gain! Heaven is where all the wrongs of the earth are made right by the Lord. God is very strategic to ensure that you lose nothing and gain everything! For instance, no one get a glorified body until we’re all gathered together at the last trumpet. Why? So everyone can pick up where they left off. You can’t physically age without a physical body.
Psalm 87:3, 5-7 (NIV) Glorious things are said of you, city of God . . . Indeed, of Zion [New Jerusalem] it will be said, “This one and that one were born in her, and the Most High himself will establish her.” The Lord will write in the register of the peoples: “This one was born in Zion.” As they make music they will sing, “All my fountains [children] are in you.”
Psalm 144:5, 12-15 (TPT) [Come] down from heaven, Lord . . . Deliver us! Then our homes will be happy. Our sons will grow up as strong, sturdy men and our daughters with graceful beauty . . . Blessed is the people of whom this is true.
2 Peter 3:8 (BSB) Beloved, do not let this one thing escape your notice: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.
The church teaches “age of accountability,” the Bible teaches spiritual coverings.
1 Corinthians 7:14 (AMP) The unbelieving husband is set apart (separated, withdrawn from heathen contamination, and affiliated with the Christian people) by union with his consecrated (set-apart) wife, and the unbelieving wife is set apart and separated through union with her consecrated husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean (unblessed heathen, outside the Christian covenant), but as it is they are prepared for God [pure and clean].
1 Corinthians 7:14 (NEB) The heathen husband now belongs to God through his Christian wife, and the heathen wife through her Christian husband. Otherwise your children would not belong to God, whereas in fact they do.
Acts 2:39 (NIV) The promise is for you and your children . . . .
2 Samuel 12:22–23 (NIV) [David said], “While the child was still alive, I fasted and wept. I thought, ‘Who knows? The Lord may be gracious to me and let the child live.’ But now that he is dead, why should I go on fasting? Can I bring him back again? I will go to him, but he will not return to me.”
2 Timothy 2:13 (TLB) Even when we are weak . . . [God] remains faithful . . . He will always carry out His promises to us.
1 Corinthians 15:29 (LOVETT) As you know, there are those who baptize on behalf of the dead. If there is no such thing as a resurrection of the dead, what’s the point of all those proxy baptisms? Why would people do such a thing unless they believed their dead would one day rise again?
- Passover – Blood on Door – Family was safe!
- Noah – Built an Ark – To the saving of his family!
- Lot – Angels saved his family from coming destruction!
Any experience Satan stole will be repaid 7 fold (Proverbs 6:31). God does not let injustice remain. ALL WRONGS ARE MADE RIGHT! You will watch your children get married. You will watch your children have kids. You will not miss out on any part of their life.
