Why do the dead rise first at the rapture?
"The dead in Christ shall rise first" and it's the first thing that will happen at the rapture. Yet many Christians don't even have a clue of why that is.
Did you know that there is something Paul does not want us as Christians to be uninformed about those asleep in Christ? Why is it that after the dead rise first, we that are alive will remain? The mystery in I Cor. 15:51 is,that not all will be asleep. Paul states we all that are alive will be the ones that are changed ' in the twinkling of an eye'. Verse 52 says the dead are raised to imperishable and we the living will be changed. Notice God raises the dead but changes the living. These are two different words with different meanings. The word "raised" here does not means to disappear and vanish, but it means the opposite. It means to rise up, cause to appear and bring before the public. This same word is used in Matt. 27:52-53 "and the graves were opened and many bodies of the saints which slept rose and came out of the graves after His resurrection, and went into the Holy City, and appeared unto many." (KJV)
This book depicts that very thing. What would it really be like to see our deceased love ones raised to imperishable and walk among us today? Get your copy of The Dead Rise First: Rapture Countdown and find out! http://www.thedeadrisefirst.com
