Caught Up Study



Caught up to what? Or is it to seize or snatch away or to be snatched away?
If it is to seize it has a totally different meaning to what most tell you, to seize is impliying us taking part in our salvation.


This is a study on 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 and other related verses.

I have used Scriptures and Strongs Concordance from http://biblehub.com

When the son of man comes He will come with the clouds of heaven. He will come in the Fathers Glory. He will come in Great Glory. I have taken verses that relate, Jesus uses the same word as ‘caught up’
harpazó: to seize, catch up, snatch away in Matthew 11:12 for seizing the Kingdom of God, He was describing John the Baptist’s ministry and His own and no doubt those that believe their message. This word harpazo is the foundation for the rapture doctrine, if you relate it to Matthew 11:12 it is more likely a word that describes a great move of God which can only be compared to the days of John the Baptist and of the Son of Man, to make harpazo mean anything but a great revival on earth, is saying something that is just not there. The regeneration which is the renewal or restoration of all things is what is promised, it must be what it is talking about. Lets not give up on God to fulfill His promises.
Air is not heaven, so to interpret air as going back to where Jesus came from, well it just doesn’t say it.
A key to understanding scripture is you cannot go beyond what is written, and this rule is also for Paul. Paul didn’t have authority to change God’s word, maybe Paul hasn’t changed Gods word, maybe it is man’s interpretation that has changed God’s word.

1 Thessalonians 4:16 says the Lord descends from heaven, but it doesn’t say we go back to heaven, it says air, this saying air is highly likely a type of being seated in heavenly places. The will of God is for heaven to be on earth, 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 is no prove that God’s will has changed.

1 Thessalonians 4:16
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:
