The Rapture and the Truth

The Rapture and the TruthThe Rapture: Context, Exegesis, Eisegesis and the Truth

The Rapture – Christians are exhorted to read and interpret biblical passages in their proper context and to avoid eisegetical interpretations of Scripture in favour of exegetical ones. Of course, all these tools are essential for an accurate understanding of many difficult passages in Scripture.

As a matter of interest, most of the present day false teachings and outright heresies are the results of context manipulation and eisegesis falsities. Nonetheless, blaming your misinterpretation of Scripture on your misunderstanding of the assumed complexities in Scripture will never exempt you from God’s righteous judgments. No one will ever be in a position to say “I misunderstood the context of such and such a passage and therefore you may not judge me.” Pay attention to what Brother Peter said,

Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. (2 Peter 3:14-16).
