continued from last week.....
This prayer Jesus prayed to His Father proves He did not believe or teach a rapture at any time.COR. 15:52 "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible and we shall be changed."
Today, this scripture is deceiving more people that any other by preachers who seldom explain it is only those that are raised from the dead who will be changed. Our Flesh and blood bodies will never be changed or used again. They will see corruption and return to the earth from whence they came.
1COR. 15:50 "Now this I say brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God: neither doth corruption inherit incorruption."
It is fact that our flesh and blood bodies will see corruption and stink after death. They will never be permitted in God's Heaven and we know Jesus is in heaven at the right hand of God; therefore we can never be gathered unto Him while in these flesh and blood bodies. It is our souls and spirits to be changed. Our Bible tells us God will give our souls a body that pleases Him after the resurrection. The life we are living now will govern the eternal body God will give our souls. Some may not be proud of theirs.
REV. 6:9 "And when He had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the alter the souls of them that were slain for the Word of God, and for the testimony which they held."
I am of the opinion there are millions and millions of souls under the alter of God who can communicate with God. Souls cannot be physically seen, they may be no larger than a dot, but God knows each one and they can loudly communicate with Him; and only seem to be interested in what is going on back in the earth...REV. 6:10 is a companion verse to REV. 6:9; proving they can communicate with each other.
