The Secret Rapture, Left Behind Theory, EXPOSED!
Any prominent Christian name prior to the 1800s didn't believe in the rapture, for it wasunheard of. This applies to Luther, Calvin, Wesley, Tyndale, Latimer, etc. etc. We willsee what did happen after
the 1800’s followed by my addendum?
Today there is a strong movement regarding the rapture of the Church that actuallybegan
with Hal Lindsey’s book;
The Late Great Planet Earth in 1970. Soon after, werefollowed by others in the Left Behind Theory regarding this secret rapture such as: TimLaHaye, John Walvoord, Thomas Ice, Jack Van Impe, Grant Jeffrey, John Hagee,Chuck Smith, or any other popular preachers, teachers and authors of the Left BehindTheory.It never applied to Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Wesley, William Tyndale, HughLatimer, etc. etc.The 1599 Geneva Bible was a veritable milestone in our spiritual heritage: it wasthe first study Bible; the first to assign chapter and verse numbers; the first to be printedin a portable and affordable edition. And it was the 1599 Geneva Bible that the Pilgrimsread as they arrived in the New World in 1620, deriving principles from its pages thathelped lay the foundation-stones of liberty in the western hemisphere.The Geneva Bible had notes of John Calvin, Luther, Zwingli, and the ProtestantReformation leaders. Many of these men were Calvinist. This was the Bible thatPocahontas read when she got saved. It has been over four hundred years since thisedition of the Geneva Bible was first printed. Now you can own a piece of this history ofGod's Word.
There is no mention of a “secret rapture?”
Many books today are written about this “secret rapture?” Be careful with these modern
footnotes found today from these Study Bibles. These footnotes are not inspired byGod. These footnotes may be deceiving? Be caution and careful on what you read.
Those denominations who do not believe in “The Secret Rapture” and “Left Behind
Theory are mentioned: Seventh Day Adventist, The Churches of God, Methodist andothers, but is strongly held especially among the Calvinist Baptist, Southern Baptist andthe Independent Baptist Churches.
