“The first great resurrection of the Church will occur at the time of the rapture. All those who have placed their trust in Jesus Christ during the Church Age, and have died before Jesus returns, will be resurrected at the rapture. The Church Age began on the Day of Pentecost and will end when Christ returns to take believers back to heaven with Him (John 14:1-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17). The Apostle Paul explained that not all Christians will die, but all will be changed, i.e., given resurrection-type bodies (1 Corinthians 15:50-58), some without having to die! Christians who are alive, and those who have already died, will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air and be with Him always!”(Gotquestions.org)
If you are reading this post, I am going to highly assume you are alive. (LOL) We will begin right here, right now, today, at this very moment, and at this very second. Wow, I sound like that guy from the 90’s who did all those info commercials. (Miss this guy btw)
Based on the popular belief, those who die in Christ will go to Heaven. So let’s use me for example. I die and go up to Heaven. Yaaaaaaaaaaay! Yaaaaaaay!
But wait, there is more!!!
So, here I am hanging with Frankie Sinatra and Jesus, then all of a sudden I am sucked back down to reconnect with my old body to only then go back up to strip off that same body to now put on a new body that apparently I never had or what? What’s going on here? Then btw, this all takes place in a twinkling of an eye. So I am back talking to Frankie Sinatra and Jesus. Oh, and I go back down with Jesus after the so called “7 year great tribulation,” to then physically live on earth for 1,000 years unto the next creation.
Imagine you died one minute before Christ returns to earth. You die, go up to Heaven, shoot back down to reconnect with your old body, go back up to strip off that body to put on a new body, and then return back to earth after Armageddon. How you doin?
