Lee Brainard: Rapture or Apostasy?

May 14, 2022

The rapture of the church is a hotly debated subject in Christian circles these days. The same passages that we believe teach the pretribulation rapture are viewed differently by others. Revelation 3:10 tells us that we can escape the Tribulation and the wrath of God that comes upon the whole world. This verse should be enough to justify the pre-trib rapture, but as you’ve heard today, there’s another controversy that has spring up recently. Some are teaching that the Greek word apostasia should actually be translated as depart or departure instead of a falling away or spiritual apostasy, indicating that this passage proves the rapture.
