 THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF ANY  BIBLE VERSES SHOWING  7 YR PRE TRIBULATION RAPTURE

BIBLE VERSES EVIDENCE:

While JESUS was alive, He prayed to His Father: "I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.  John 17:15 (KJV)

JESUS gave signs of what must happen before His Return:  "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:"  Matt. 24:29 (KJV)

 "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:   Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord." I Thess. 4:16-17 (KJV)

"In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed."  I Corin. 15:52

The "Resurrection" has been erroneously labeled The "Rapture".

Acts 17:10-12

10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.

11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

12 Therefore many of them believed; also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few.
KJV

Luke 21:25-28

25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 

27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
KJV

WHAT IS "CHRISTIAN LOVE".....Also defined as "Agape love"???


FOR FAIR USE AND EDUCATION AND DISCUSSION PURPOSES



We all use the word "love" in all kinds of ways, and this one word gets us into multitudes of trouble because we don't understand what it means.

Define "LOVE"!! And if you tried to define "love" in "25 words or less", you would be fighting a losing battle. (I am not speaking of the "lust" kind of love.)

I've been married, raised children, worked as a professional in the medical field for over 40 years, and have considered myself a "Christian" for a long time. And I've come to the conclusion that the definition of "love" depends upon the one defining it, and who is the object of that definition.

What standard do we use to define "love". And what the heck is "agape love"?? Maybe others can understand it, but I sure don't!

If a person is nice to me, I tend to "like" them. How much I like them tends to be determined by the extent and quality of our relationship. If someone is miserable and unkind to me, I DON'T LIKE THEM! Can I "agape love" them if I don't like them?

I can't answer that because I haven't a clue HOW to "agape love" someone. I love God. Although I go through bad things as well as good things, I truly, and sincerely love God. But that's because I know Who God is and that I am included in His future plans. He will never hurt me or do me harm unless it is for my own good. I trust Him completely!

That, to me, is "agape" love. I know of people who have told me of their sincere "agape love" toward me....and then proceeded to "stab me in the back" at the nearest opportunity. So, I really don't trust "agape love" coming from any human person.

And I believe that TRUTH is a huge factor in showing LOVE. I know that in marriages, lies kill love. Lack of trust kills love. Lack of intimacy kills love. In fact, almost ANYTHING can "kill" love, if we let it.

I think the main reason we love is because we WANT TO. But, that's my own personal experience.

If you know someone lies, and you cannot trust them, then how does "agape love" fit into that mix??

Here's a great article which makes a lot of sense when it comes to "Christian love" and what it means:


http://www.pbministries.org/Theology/cook/christian_love.htm


Piece of link article:

In the beginning this article asked the question, "What is love?" In an attempt to answer this most poignant question, definitions were given about the different types of love that are found in the Scriptures. Then it was shown that truth is that which defines love and not visa versa. Christian love is based on truth; the truth of God’s eternal word. Christian love is not emotional, it not defined by worldly standards, and it is not conditional.

Furthermore, Christian love can be seen in commitment. The commitment of an individual to be obedient to the truth and the commandments of God manifests itself in Christian love. When such commitment takes place, love will be a natural by-product. Yes, we love because we were first loved, but, truth is the absolute by which we are to conduct ourselves. If we love (agape) someone it is because the truth lives in us and not because be expect something in return. For someone to say, "Well he’s not a very loving person," may in itself be very misleading. We must first ask, "What is his commitment to the truth?"

Love is not always something that can be felt; it is sometimes a matter of discernment. Why would a person dedicate his life to the teaching, preaching, protecting, and feeding of the flock if he did not love the flock? We can not allow ourselves to judge another on an emotion. Christian love is a virtue that results in a commitment to the truth.

***********

If someone else has a better definition of "agape love", then I would love to hear it.

Because one becomes a "Christian" does not mean that they automatically LOVE every other Christian. God did not make "cookie cutter" people, let alone Christians. We are ALL VERY DIFFERENT, especially emotionally. I have never been the "honey-dripping-out-of-the-mouth" type of person, and I never will be.

There are those who can carry that kind of behavior with them all the time....and be loved for it. And for some people, those "nice people" are completely annoying. I have friends whose "bite" is far worse than their "bark".....and I adore them because they put on no pretense.

So, I guess the "bottom line" is.....who knows? I think the BEST thing to do is keep one's distance from those who become annoying. And don't begin an argument with someone just to be contrary.
