Episode 75 - A Pastor And A Podcaster Answer Questions Regarding The “Rapture” Of The Church
Join Pastor Phil Baker and BDK for Omega Frequency’s first monthly listener-directed Q&A podcast! This show revolves around 15 questions posed to us by our listeners on the issue of the rapture of the Church and Christ’s second coming. We start by answering “Why are you doing a show on the rapture? The word rapture is not in the Bible!” We then break down the term in light of 1 Thessalonians 4:17 and place it into the context of the events surrounding Jesus’ return. What is our “blessed hope”? Where is the rapture in relation to the seven year tribulation? Is the rapture described in the Book of Revelation, and if so - where? Is the Church on the earth during the tribulation according to Revelation chapters 4-19? Is the concept of dispensationalism Biblical? Do the Churches in Revelation represent different Church ages? What happens at the judgement seat of Christ? Could the alignment of certain stars on Sept. 23, 2017 signal either the rapture or the beginning of the tribulation? What did the Jewish people of Jesus’ day believe about Messianic Biblical prophecy? Does it matter what you believe about the second coming of Jesus as long as you believe in a second coming? Is that viewpoint a wise and safe way to approach our Lord’s return? These are just a few of the questions up for discussion!
