Only The Righteousness Can Take Us To Heaven
Passage: 1 Corinthians 15
Rapture simply means the transportation of the saints to heaven. That is, the believers of Jesus Christ will witness his second coming, and they will be transported to heaven. Only those who have confessed their faith in Jesus Christ (whether dead or alive) will be transported to heaven.
The Bible declares:
“Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory” (1 Corinthians 15:50-55).
Unbelievers Will Not Experience The Rapture
The rapture will remain a believer’s hope. The experience will be instantaneous, but permanently gratifying for Christians. People who have confessed their faith in Jesus Christ will escape this present sinful world, and be transported to heaven to enjoy eternal life with God. The scripture affirmed,
“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed” (1 Corinthians 15:52).
However, despite the beautiful experience that rapture will create for God’s saints, unbelievers will not partake in it. People who have refused to confess Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior will be disallowed from heaven!
People who have refused to accept the faith will be cast out. God will cast the unrepentant sinners to hell fire where they shall live in pain and sorrow. Unbelievers will permanently share hell fire with Satan.
A person may not have an opportunity to reverse his unbelieving decision during rapture since the event will be instant. It is, therefore, important that every unbeliever make an immediate decision to confess Jesus Christ as his or her personal Lord and Savior before it is too late.
If you want to inherit heaven, avoid procrastinating, but make an immediate decision to confess
