274 - Answering the Rapture Question

December 1, 2014
Many of those who deny the doctrine of the Rapture of the church smugly say the word rapture doesn't even appear in the Bible.  And, to a degree, this is true.  Unless you have a Latin Bible, and then everything changes.  You see, the Greek word translated rapture in Latin is harpazo and means:  "to seize upon, to snatch away, to draw away, to carry off, to catch up, to receive, to pluck out, to rescue, to forcefully take away."

Rapture is the Latin form of harpazo and is found in the Vulgate which was translated by Jerome in the late 4th century and in the 16th century became the official Bible of the Catholic church.

Do you have questions about the coming rapture (harpazo) of the church?  Good.  Then keep listening.

The following is a study on the rapture of the church.

268 - Two Questions, One Life, One Choice

October 26, 2014
The book of Malachi ends with the description of two groups of people that will respond differently when the day of the Lord comes.  One, those who fear the Lord and long for His appearing, will see the "Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings" (Mal. 3:2).  The other group, those who do not know or love the Lord, that Day will be a day of "burning like an oven" (Mal. 4:1).

Question for us is this:  Which group are you in?  And what are you prepared to do about it?

To find the answer to these eternal questions, keep listening.

The following is a study on Malachi 4:1-6.

065 - The View from Inside the Tomb

December 12, 2008
Lazarus was dead and in the tomb for four days before Jesus made His way back to Bethany to raise him from the dead.  Four days!  That's like a really long time!

Did you ever wonder what Lazarus did during those four days? Or maybe what it must have been like to wake up in the tomb, strapped to a gurney, wrapped in rotting grave clothes?  Sounds like the making of a B rated horror film, doesn't it? 

Take a listen with us and let's see Lazarus' view from inside the tomb.

044 - Drapes, Darkness and Dead Guys

February 12, 2008
"Can I get a witness?" shouts the house.
Sure.  How 'bout this...
 
Now from the sixth hour darkness fell upon all the land until the ninth hour. And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth shook and the rocks were split.  The tombs were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the tombs after His resurrection they entered the holy city and appeared to many - Matthew 27:45, 50-53.

Don't get no better than that!
