So he could fool people into believing he was Christ come to rapture them away before the actual second comming. Anything that would confuse scripture or understanding to the timeline is beneficial in its own anyway (to satan).
perhaps if project blue beam is legitimate it would explain how this scam could be pulled off. though that is not necessary for him to be able to pull of this scam.
Not when you consider that the word we call 'church' (ekklesia) is just the Greek version of the word 'assembly,' ('qahal' in the OT: often translated 'multitude', 'congregation', 'assembly', etc...)

The most glaring problem with any theory that doesn't include the rapture of the church is the total absence of it in the tribulation described in revelations.

Does anyone here realize the biblical rapture explains the obvious - death. It is presumptuous that people have come to believe that it is describing an event where believers are all raptured at the same time. Perhaps it is just describing the process of dying for each and every one of us. At this point in time, we are raptured.

This is fundamentally flawed becuase God did not rapture Noah when he sent the flood?
No I think that the rapture is a doctrine of man which is a deception and trick of the satan.
Does it contradict the bible?
