This Gospel is a companion volume to the book of Acts, and the language and structure of these two books indicate that both were written by the same person.They are addressed to the same individual, Theophilus, and the second volume refers to the first (Ac 1:1).So we see many Christian churches today, who do not rightly divide their Bibles, are teaching their people that there is no difference between the Rapture and the Second Coming. But we will show you conclusively in this article that, because of the manifold differences between the Rapture of the Church and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, that it is impossible for them to be the same event.2 Timothy (KJV)There is an old adage that says “things that are different are not the same”.Courtney Humphreys and Nishta Mehra definitely think so.Courtney realizes their relationship seems convoluted on paper: "I'm a white, evangelical Christian, married with two young children.And some of it is written to the unbelieving Gentiles.This is why Paul commands Timothy to teach people how to “rightly divide” their Bibles to know which of the three groups God is speaking to at any given time.
We start with this one first because it is the one difference most overlooked in a study of the differences between the Rapture and the Second Coming.
An important Bible verse about understanding interracial marriage is 2 Corinthians : "Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers." That last word, "unbelievers" is of key importance.
A Christian should not marry a non-Christian no matter how kind and good they are. Deuteronomy 7:1-6 tells the Israelites to destroy all the inhabitants of the Canaan land and not to intermarry with them because they would "turn your sons away from following Me, that they may serve other gods." The same key concern of 2 Corinthians is again expressed here.
The Bible is clear that when both parties are believers (equally yoked), interracial marriage is not wrong.
A Christian couple contemplating marriage must prayerfully and carefully consider the impact their marriage will have within their cultural context, their family relationships, future children and the society in which they live.
