Why You Should Not Believe In the Rapture with Matthew Distefano

When Jesus is talking about being lifted up high, He is talking about the Cross.


In this episode, Pastor Adam Ericksen and Matthew Distefano discuss the rapture – and why you shouldn’t believe in it.

Author and blogger Matthew Distefano joins Adam to discuss the modern Christian heresy of the rapture. No one believed in the rapture until 1830. The concept of the rapture began when a young girl revealed her dream about Jesus which connected to Matthew 24 and was interpreted and promoted by John Nelson Darby.
