"...we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith...working through love." [Gal.5:5,6]

"...we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ..." [Titus 2:12,13]

The word "hope" used in the text "the hope of righteousness" and "the blessed hope" are referring to the translation of our bodies from mortality to immortality. This is what the Rapture is going to bring about. So-called Christians who don't believe in the Rapture, deep down, are not hoping to receive immortality when the Lord comes. It's the reason why they have no motivation whatsoever to live "righteously and godly" in this present age, that's coming to an end in a few days! The truth is they don't have a faith that works through deeds of love towards others. These are Christians who have a dead faith that's leading them blindly into the wrath of God. In the Christian World the Rapture is going to separate the wheat from the chaff, the wise from the foolish and the righteous from the wicked. It's going to be a Day when all dissensions about the Rapture will cease forever!
