No one doubts that world events are spiraling out of control. Kingdom against kingdom, earthquakes in diverse places, violence, sexual perversion, drug and alcohol abuse; this list is endless. The Rapture According to the Apostle Paul is a book of hope. It tells readers that by accepting Jesus Christ as Messiah and Lord, they can avoid inclusion in the soon arrival of the tribulation. When Jesus returns for Christians " in the sky," all of His followers will be lifted from the earth bodily, and will be given bodies like Jesus. Those Christians who have died during the past two thousand years will also rise in new eternal bodies, meeting their spirit and soul, which Jesus brings with Him from Heaven when He comes for us.
