The only thing getting left behind in the rapture is the scriptures

To believe in the rapture (per premillennial doctrine) you have to leave the scriptures behind.

Premillennialism teaches that Jesus’ rapturous return will be “silent”, but the scriptures teach that Jesus’ return will be anything but quiet:

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16 NKJV)

Premillennialism teaches that Jesus’ rapturous return will happen “secretly”, but the scriptures teach that Jesus’ return will take place in a way that removes all doubt:

Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen.” (Revelation 1:7 NKJV)

Premillennialism teaches that Jesus’ rapturous return will bring a “sacrificial system” with it, but the scriptures teach that Jesus’ return will seal the sinner’s fate and the salvation of the redeemed:

And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.” (Hebrews 9:27-28 NKJV)

The idea of a premillennial rapture has sold a lot of books, but one book that is not sold on the doctrine is the Bible.
