What does the parable of the dragnet teach us about the rapture and the second coming
This same order of events during the SecondComing can be seen in another parable Jesus gives, and Renald Showers explains:Showers: Now, Jesus taught the same order for His second coming again in what's calledthe parable of the dragnet. Let me read to you from Matthew 13:47, quot;Again the kingdomof heaven is like unto a net that was cast into the sea and gathered of every kind, which,when it was full they drew to shore and sat down and gathered the good in the vesselsbut cast the bad away.quot; Now, here Jesus gives the application of that parable to His secondcoming. quot;So shall it be at the end of the age. The angels shall come forth and severthe wicked from among the just.quot; The angels
are going to in essence cut off the wicked,remove them, from among the just, the righteous, quot;and shall cast them into the furnace of fire.There shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.quot; Notice the same order, for His glorious secondcoming immediately after the seven year Tribulation period, His holy angels will remove all theun believers who are alive on the earth at that time from the earth in judgment and putthem into a horrible place of judgment characterized by fire where there will be wailing and gnashingof teeth, but the good fish, representing the believers, are left here to go into theKingdom. He's teaching that the order of things atHis second coming will be just the reverse
of the order at the Rapture. At the Raptureit's all the believers who are removed from the earth and blessing to meet Christ in theair to return with Him to His Father's house in Heaven and it's the unbelievers who willbe left here on the face of the earth. Now, you have identically that same order againfor the second coming after the Tribulation period taught by Jesus in Matthew 24.And that's beginning with verse 37 where Jesus says, quot;But as the days of Noah were, so shallalso the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the Flood,they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage until the day that Noahentered into the ark and knew not until the
Flood came and took them all away, so shallalso the coming of the Son of man be.quot; What Jesus is saying here is this: the order atmy glorious second coming immediately after the seven year Tribulation period will beidentically the same as the order of things in Noah's day in conjunction with the Flood.One of the ways in which the order would be the same is this: the Flood came and tookthem all away. Which group of people did the Flood take away from planet Earthâ€”the believersor the unbelieversé The Flood removed all the unbelievers of Noah's day from the earthin judgment. And the believers in Noah's day, namely, Noah and his family, were left hereon the earth in the ark to go into the next
period of world history after the Flood. Andafter pointing that out, Jesus says, again, at the end of v. ', quot;So shall also the comingof the Son of man be.quot; It'll be the same order of things then as it was in the days of Noahwith the Flood. And then to illustrate that, He goes on in vv. 40 and 41, quot;then in theday that the Son of man comes,quot; after the Tribulation period, quot;then shall two be inthe field, the one shall be taken and the other left. Two women shall be grinding atthe mill, the one shall be taken and the other left.quot; Now the question is, quot;Who is the onetaken from the fieldé and the one taken from the milléquot; If it's the same order of thingsas in Noah's day with the Flood and the Flood
took all the unsaved away and Jesus says it'llbe the same order at His second coming, then it seems to me you're forced to conclude thatthe one who is taken from the field and the one who is taken from the mill are not believerstaken by Rapture but unbelievers who are alive on the earth at Jesus' second coming. Theyare taken by Christ's holy angels from the earth in judgment just as we saw with theparable of the tares and the parable of the dragnet in Matthew Chapter 13, and thereforethe one that's left in the field and the one that's left at the mill is the believer whois left here on the earth, the believer who is alive at the second coming of Christ afterthe Tribulation period left here on the earth
What does 1 Thessalonians 4 teach about the rapture
In connection with the Rapture of the Churchin I Thessalonians 4, he indicates that Christians who are living will be caught up to meet theLord. And this, of course is taught in I Corinthians Chapter 15. In this chapter he is dealingwith the subject of resurrection and he deals with this matter of the Rapture of the Churchand he brings out in verses 51 and following these wonderful truths: quot;Behold I tell youa mystery: we shall not all sleep but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinklingof an eye at the at the last trump; for the trumpet will sound and the dead will be raisedincorruptible and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption,and this mortal must put on immortality.quot;
Now, those of us who are living as Christiansin the world recognize we have some problems. First of all, we have a body that is givento us by our parents and it's a sinful body. It's able to sin. In fact, every Christiansins. It's also a body that grows older, and whether you resist it or not, eventually yougrow older. And finally, it's mortal; that is, it can die.Now, these three things have to be changed. And I believe when the Rapture of the Churchoccurs, instantly we are going to be changed and given bodies patterned after the resurrectionbody of Christ and this will make us suitable for being in the Lord's presence in heaven.You see, we couldn't stand it to be in the
presence of a holy God in our present bodies.We need an entirely different body and that will be given to us at the Rapture of theChurch. So a whole generation of Christians would go to heaven without dying.In the Old Testament you have the illustration of Enoch and Elijah who went to heaven withoutdying, but they're the only exceptions. Everybody else is born, raised, and dies in history.But now here's a whole generation that's going to be changed and this is our wonderful prospect.And so whether we're young Christians or middle age or older, we have this wonderful hopethat if Christ comes any day, that we'll be raptured and our bodies will be instantlychanged.
