Rapture: Why Do Most Fear? – Rapture Ready article by Lisa Heaton

Please watch the brief introduction video first.

Many, maybe even most professing Jesus followers, fear the rapture, that moment when we will all be caught up in the air to be with Jesus. If you feel fearful, it’s okay to acknowledge that to the Lord. Your honest-with-yourself answer might well lead you to a place of freedom in an area that’s been holding you hostage. The rapture is our glorious hope (Titus 2:13), so if you feel anything other than hope and excitement, please take the time to read Rapture: Why Are You Excited?. I hope someday that you will be counted among those of us who are excited.

While there are possibly dozens of reasons why individuals may fear the rapture, from childhood trauma to denominational lack of teaching or teaching in error, I will narrow the scope of the topic to just a few possibilities: not knowing the promise, not knowing what’s waiting, not knowing Who’s coming.

  1. Wow, your editor is transparent and did exactly what Lord requires of His children….turn it over to Him, ask for wisdom from Him, search His Word, and obey.

    I need to take my own advice, so many times I give it to Him, then take it back. Pray for me, I am struggling with an elderly husband, and I am not seeking the Holy Spirit when I long for the fruits of the Spirit that believers should exhibit.
    My husband was saved at age 75, 4 years ago, got “cov/bioweapon where he was in hospital and they gave him remdesivir i.v. and his mind is not the same. He’s 79, and I’m 68. We’ve been together for 46 years, I was saved at age 51 and for 13 years we were unequally yoked. But God. So he is not spiritually mature and I want to rush him. God forgive me.
    Thank you, Lisa, so much. I can’t tell you how happy I am that I found your website. You really hit home in my life. God speed in your ministry.

    1. Thanks, Denise for taking the time to comment.

      You’re not alone. We all do that, give our troubles to Jesus then take them right back. At least, where your husband is concerned, you see you need help with dealing with some issues. Haha! And you’re not alone there either. I think most of us could agree we need help dealing with these men. 😉 You, contrary to most, know just Who can help you out.

      I’m so sorry you’re both dealing with the fallout of Covid and their failed treatments. You keep seeking Jesus. You keep growing.

      Blessings to you,
