Products Description

Author: Pastor Ron Poch

The purpose in sharing this book with you is not to rehash information that has already been put into print and readily available. It was not compiled to cause anger or argument although it may.

My desire is to have you take a look at I Thessalonians 4:16-17 in a different perspective and see an aspect that perhaps you previously have not entertained or envisioned. This scripture in I Thessalonians is the premier and primary text that preachers teachers and evangelists use as proof of the rapture. But what if the verses are really saying something else? The book encourages the reader to question his belief system which is healthy. It serves to substantiate in brief form where the "rapture teaching" got its start but this is not my aim or intention.

I have asked in prayer for the Lord to give me "fragments." You remember reading in the Gospels the feeding of the 5000. Do you recall what our Savior told the disciples in John 6:12? He said "Gather up the fragments that remain that nothing be lost." This really is the "fragment" ministry. I asked God to give me the leftovers that no one else wanted. He's been faithful to do that. The first half of the book deals with the "loaves and fishes" that may have been shared with you before. The last half deals with "fragments of truth" that perhaps will help you in the days to come.

Remember these words: SHOUT...TRUMPET...CAUGHT UP! Read on.

"This book is extremely interesting; it is hard to put down. Not only is the subject matter riveting in nature but also written with great intensity. Intense feeling -something that seems perhaps unfashionable in today's society is nonetheless most powerful. It is obvious the theme is no mere rhetorical exercise to Pastor Ron Poch and this carries great weight."
---Norbert Senftleben

"finally someone has delved into the true nature of the rapture. Easy to read and understand this book needs to be in the hands of honest seekers everywhere."
-- Pastor Rick Strawcutter

"The meaning of SHOUT, TRUMPET and CAUGHT UP...I enjoyed the way he takes us through the Word. He reveals the different aspects of each of these words as they apply to the context of the Bible. I agree with the author when he says 'God's people should be living in the here and now.' Most definitely we are called to be overcomers!"
-- Ramon Arias

THE RAPTURE by Richard A Nellis This is my review after reading the book. FIRST TRUST NO ONE WITH YOUR ETERNAL LIFE CHECK EVERYTHING WITH THE SCRIPTURES, IF IT IS NOT IN THE SCRIPTURE IT IS A FALSE TEACHING. One of the meanings of 'Rapture' is ' to transport with excitement' another meaning is 'extreme joy or pleasure'. The author is correct when he says the word 'rapture' is not in the Bible, but then there are not any English words in the Bible. God authored it in Aramaic and Hebrew and it was translated into English and many other languages. The word rapture is a verb used to express another authors opinion of the feeling of joy that would be experienced by the 'catching up' at the coming of the Messiah. Precepts Isaiah 28:9-13 “9 ¶ Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. 10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: 11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. 12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear. 13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.” ( AV) Parables “24 ¶ Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? 28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.” (Matthew 13:24-30 AV) Jesus taught using parables and symbols to protect the word as well as the writer. The symbols used in this parable are explained in Matthew 13:36-43 “36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. 37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. 41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; 42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.” (Matthew 13:36-43 AV) Scripture interprets the scriptures. There are many symbols given in the Bible for use when finding the true meaning of the verses of scripture. To use something other than the meaning which the scripture applies to a scripture is to falsely interpret the scripture. To use one's own opinion of the meaning is to falsely interpret the scripture. God's word is the truth. There can only be one truth, there can be no conflict in the truth. The book of 1 Thessalonians was written by Paul, Silvanus, and Timotheus to the Church of the Thessalonians. It is a recognition of Timotheus, who is being sent back as a replacement for Paul and Silvanus, who are going to stay in Athens. It seems to be an effort to build their faith; to bolster their walk with God (1Th 2:12), to give them information on the coming of the Lord (1Th 2:19), to remind them of what they were taught before (1Th 3:4, 8). It also reviews and expands what they were taught in the past (1Th 4:1-12). From verse 1Th 4:13 on, it seems to be a new teaching for the church of the Thessalonians. In John 5:29 we are told there will be two resurrections, those in Christ and those who are not in Christ. This teaching expands on that by add a provision for the living in Christ who will 'be caught up' when the dead in Christ are resurrected. (Revelation 20:5 But the rest of the dead {those not in Christ} lived not again until the thousand years were finished. …) If you are searching the scriptures as indicated by Acts 17:11, be sure to include 2Pe 3:8 on the day of the Lord, also look for the phrase 'Day of the Lord' which occurs 26 times. I will include one of them to peak your interest: 2Pe 3:9-10 “9 ¶ The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 10 But the "day of the Lord" will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.“ These 26 verses speak of terror, wrath, vengeance, fire, darkness, destruction, anger, judgment, blood, and all manner of nasty things. It almost makes one not want to be there when it occurs. But others look forward to it because it is the advent of our Lord's coming. The 'Day of the Lord' is the day that our Messiah returns to call His People (1Th 4:16-1Th 5:3) to meet Him in the air and destroy all the living who are not called to be with Him. It is the next (first) resurrection (John 5:29) and the second coming (Re 20:1-5). The (second) resurrection (John 5:29) of the damned will be at or about the time of the final coming at the end of the millennium. Luke 20:35-36 “35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: 36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.” Those that are worthy to obtain that world and are dead can only apply to the righteous dead from the next resurrection. Those from the final resurrection are tnhe one spoken of in Ezekiel chapters 37-39. They are better known as the dry bones because they will be resurrected as physical beings NOT spiritual beings. This 'day of the Lord' will be a very busy millennium, God calls it the second coming. But for us it starts with the return of the Messiah (1Th 4:16-1Th 5:3), followed by the destruction of the planet (2Th 1:5-9). It ends with the second resurrection and the return of the Messiah and the New Jerusalem coming down to the earth (Re 21:2). Some other verses that give information on the millennium period. That you might like to look at are: GALATIANS 4:1-7 MALACHI 4:1-6 2Pe 3:7, 10, 12 Ezekiel 37:1-28 Look for the “¶” and read the entire paragraph not just one verse.


This is NOT a review of Pastor Ron Poch's book “I WANT TO BE LEFT BEHIND”. It is a review of the concept of NOT wanting to go with the messiah when he calls. Who would even think about refusing God? No, I have not yet read the book, I read the foreword and I disagree with that. Take a look at 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17, then read on to 1 Thessalonians 5:3. This is still talking about the catching up (Rapture). The believers have risen with Christ and those 'left behind' are caught in the 'sudden destruction and they shall not escape'. John 5:29 tells us that there are two resurrections and Revelation 20: 1-5 shows that the will be 1,000 years, a millennium between them. This is the seventh 1,000 year Day of the Lord (2 Peter 3:8). The phrase 'Day of The Lord' is used 22 times in the KJ Bible, most of these verses speak of terror, wrath, vengeance, fire, darkness, destruction, anger, judgment, blood, burning, and all manner of nasty things. No I don't want to be here at that time. (Read Isaiah 2:12, Isaiah 13:6, Isaiah 34:8, Jeremiah 46:10, Lamentations 2:22, Ezekiel 13:5, Ezekiel 30:3, Joel 1:15, Joel 2:1, 3, 11, Joel 3:14, Amos 5:18, Obadiah 1:15, Zephaniah 1:7, 14, Zephaniah 2:2,3, 2Corinthians 1:14, 1Thessalonians 5:2, and 2Peter 3:10) Everyone should be praying to God and repenting of all their transgressions. I pray Psalms 139, starting with verses 23 and 24 then go to verse 1 to 24. God has reveled many things that I need to repent for.
