"Bruce Warner "Two Ways the Church Enters Heaven...""
Bruce, you wrote:
of Christ' also known as the 'firstfruits' of His Church are the 'dead
in Christ' who rise first, and then the 'living in Christ' who are
gathered up together with them to meet the Lord in the air...The
'balance' of the Church enters into the "Great Tribulation" on earth to
gain sanctification (ie. they wash their robes) before entering
I think it is an interesting supposition but I
just wonder why if this were so Apostle Paul would have put himself in
the "we which are alive and remain" group and not in the "dead in
Christ" group? He certainly considered himself to be dead in Christ
when he said I am crucified with Christ nevertheless I live...
Just looking at it from all angles.
