The Rapture (Part 3) – What it is Not

The previous post attempted to explain what the rapture is. We know the rapture is a catching away of church saints. It helps to have an understanding of what the rapture is not, and the other things people say about the rapture. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with …
