Why do the dead rise first?

Why do the dead rise first at the rapture?

The first thing that will happen at the rapture is the dead will rise first. Yet many Christians don't even have a clue of why that is.
Did you know that there is something Paul does not want us as Christians to be uninformed about those asleep in Christ? Why is it that  after the dead  rise first, we that are alive will remain? The mystery in I Cor. 15:51 is,that not all will be asleep. Paul states we all that are alive will be the ones that are changed ' in the twinkling of an eye'. Verse 52 says the dead are raised to imperishable and we the living will be changed. Notice God raises the dead but changes the living. These are two different words with different meanings. The word "raised" here does not means to disappear and vanish, but it means the opposite. It means to rise up, cause to appear and bring before the public. This same word is used in Matt. 27:52-53 "and the graves were opened and many bodies of the saints which slept rose and came out of the graves after His resurrection, and went into the Holy City, and appeared unto many." (KJV)
This book depicts that very thing. What would it really be like to see our deceased love ones raised to imperishable and walk among us today?

A few passages?? I only have room for 460 chaarcters. Can't retype the whole Bible for you. Seems like you DENY the Bible what the Lord says. You need to grow up .the CHURCH has NOTHING to do with JEWISH Feast Days!!! That's why NO Rabbis, or Jewish leaders were CHOSEN by Christ to start buiding HIS Church. The Lord will come for us when we LEAST expect Him. You cant's expect Him on a day when the MAJORITY of the people that REJECTED Him do NOT Accept Him.

Therefore keep watch beucsae you do NOT know on what DAY your your Lord will come .So you must be READY beucsae the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do NOT expect Him. Matthew 24:42-44; I will come like a thief and you will NOT know at what time I will come to you. Revelation 3:3; Behold, I come as a thief Rev. 16:15 A thief comes quickly, quietly, suddenly .no WARNING. READY means do NOT be living in sin; otherwise you'll MISS the Rapture ..

I find it interesting when you teach what the Bible says in respsnoe to false doctrine they rail on you, and accuse you slanderously. If people examined the words they spoke in comparssion to the instructions Jesus gave us; they would be humbled. Istead they exalt themselves and refuse correction, reproof and instruction. Proverbs chapter 1:2-7 is very clear! The true believer will read this and be convicted, and repent. The imposter will continue to rail and spue things contrary to scripture.

are the most confused pesron on these comment forum. You claim to be of the Church of Philadelphia, but she is the bride and not a coward waiting for rapture. Meet her in Revelation 11, does she look like you? Just in case you foolishly think Rev 11 speaks of Elijah and Moses, you better understand the meaning of candlesticks in Rev 11: 4 compared to Rev 1: 20. The candlestick is the Church/Bride dummy! and she is not you.

Only the false prophets of the antiChrist come up with these whaekcd out timelines. Why because they are deceivers and being deceived. If there were in fact a method of precise prediction it could not be using man's' calendering ; Babylonian, Gregorian , Mayan, et al. No, you need to understand the Scripture is perfect and Yahuweh has revealed the understanding of these things through Uriel to Enoch, Michael and Daniel. Enoch's testament in particular has been carefully scrubbed and removed from the State sponsored religious canon of writings because the 501(c)3 system is the satanic counterfeit like Talmudic Judaism , they are of their father the devil , when they speak a lie it is their father's lie and they certainly do not want the elect to find out that they are in fact the evil ones , so they do all in their power to bury the truth and distort it at any cost .. No man can serve two masters.

This flowchart is ulrttey wrong. I have done many of these things, however I know that Jesus will not leave me behind because I have put my faith in Him and asked me to forgive me of my sins. The fact that being on my period and I would be left behind is purely ridiculous, as being unclean on your period was Old Testament and is now obsolete. God can forgive you of your sins nobody is perfect and without Him sending His son to die for us, we would all be left behind and sent to Hell, to be separated from Him forever. I pray that people would see the truth of the Gospel, not these lies that have been created.

Ditto, my cats are more loving than most of the ploepe I know, and aside from committing the sin of hairball upchucking on the bed in the middle of the night once, they're practically perfect.But it's all a moot point for me anyway I'm a gay wiccan (witch) so I'm definitely not going anywhere. I just hope this means traffic will be lighter on the way to work Monday morning.And please don't pray for me. If you do that, then you're asking your god to fundamentally change who I am, which goes against both my nature and my wishes, and in my religion we call that sort of energy black magic.Have a nice rapture.

Thanks for bringing up the thing that has alwyas bugged me the most, having been raised in a fundamentalist christian household, and now, a 62 year old lesbian mother of two perfectly wonderful daughters: I do not think Jesus had any intention of being worshiped, in fact would be appalled at the whole idea of the modern christian church who bows down to him as a god. Jesus likely came to us as a great spiritual teacher, attempting to show us, mostly via metaphors, how to find our own power and majesty through our personal connections with god.

that everyone who belveies in him and asks forgiveness for their sins will live forever. That is the reason Christianity has been so popular for so long. One does NOT have to be a good person in any way whatsoever, you just have to tell god you're sorry, and tell jesus you're a believer. Bingo, Rapture! Despite the bible quotes Adam posted, the bottom line from JC is, Believe, Repent, go to the Rapture. Why do you think there are so many more Christians than Jews????.
