Please join me this Sunday morning at Dakota Community Church as we continue our study of 1 Thessalonians. This next passage is one of the most dissected, discussed, debated and denied of the entire Bible.
The focus of all the debate is Paul’s reference to the “catching up” of the church in chapter 4:17; an event that is more popularly known as the rapture. The controversy has much to do with issues that spill over from different passages scattered throughout the Bible; however, a simple reading of the passage in context proves that Paul was not writing this text to provide a comprehensive eschatological overview of end time events.
We will not walk away from this passage having answered all of the questions that we may have concerning the last days, we will identify several essential truths that the passage emphatically teaches!
