Many Christians today struggle with the idea of the Rapture of the Church. Is it a true doctrine? Or is it just a false hope presented by the church?
While the word "rapture" does not appear in the KJV bible, the term that it represents does. It is, in fact used nurmerous times and was an important teaching of the early church. The original Greek word "harpazo" was translated in the Latin Vulgate bible as "rapiemur". It is from this Latin word where we get the term rapture. This word is translated in English as "caught up" as seen in 1Thes 4:17.
Strong's 726. arpazw harpazo
to seize:--catch (away, up), pluck, pull, take (by force).

history a result of decisions made 2,680 years ago? Have ancient
prophets accurately foretold the future? The evidence that the planet
is a powder keg and the world’s leaders are about to light
the fuse is undeniable. What will happen next?

Redemption; the other to Judgment.

Hello Pastor John,
I am responding after my 2nd reading of The Manasseh Effect.
I am no scholar by any means, but I do appreciate factual, historical,
and Biblical writting. That is just another reason I enjoy Calvary
Chapel Tri-City. Not only is my time there a break for me, but the
material I have received have proven extremely valuable for my efforts
of trying to bring glory to our Savior. I want to thank you and
also tell you that this work, The Manasseh Effect, could
well be, next to the Bible, one of the best tools in anyones arsenal.
I am going to start teaching this in conjunction with Bible studies,
mens' fellowship, any pulpit time I am blessed with in my home church
(Calvary Chapel Boulder City, Nevada), and in the Rescue Mission
here in Las Vegas. When you come out with the finished product [which
is now available], please let me know and I will talk to the Calvary
Chapel's here in Las Vegas, if you would like, about carrying The
Manasseh Effect is their bookstores. God bless you, Shauna, the
boys, and family all.
Again, thank you.
Jim M., Las Vegas, Nevada
