WHO is God’s enemy?
Will God’s enemies be raptured?
There are different kinds of enemies of God. An enemy of God is an unsaved person, a person who is spiritually dead as he travels with the crowd on the broad road with the devil to an eternal Hell (Mat.7:13-14). All unsaved people (those who do not believe God (1 John 5:10-13) and accept His only begotten Son, Jesus to save them (John 3:15-18, 36; 8:24), are enemies of God . . . even though they may act religious, and claim to be “Christians.” There are many religious, regular church members who are enemies of God. I think that the apostle Paul refers to the life BEFORE people have faith in Christ and receive forgiveness and salvation from God as being enemies of God. Romans 5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. (KJV)
Psalm 2:1-5 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, 3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. 4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. 5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. (KJV) . . . God laughs at His enemies, He laughs them to scorn. A wise and careful person will always ask: who are the enemies of God? To answer that question correctly, there are four different ways to identify them.
#1. Those Who Oppose the Gospel
All those who oppose the gospel and all the lovers of the world are the enemies of God (1 John 3:15; James 4:4). Those who are comfortable and at ease with the world system and the way it operates are God's enemies.
#2. Those Who Hate the Truth
All those who hate the truth are God's enemies. Some people will prefer to believe lies rather than to believe the truth. IF you prefer lies to the truth, you are an enemy of God. Truth is rare. Lies are commonplace. Man is born a lover of lies and hater of God's Truth. Psalm 58:3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies. (KJV) . . . NO child has to be taught to lie . . . it comes naturally to him. This is the certain result of the Fall. Our first parents preferred the devil's lie . . . to God's Truth, and all of their descendants inherit this deadly virus. (John 8:44-45; 1 John 5:19).
#3. Those Who Are Not Born Again
As far as God is concerned, ALL unbelievers are controlled by the spirit of the power of the air (Eph.2:2), whereas ALL TRUE believers in Christ are controlled by the Spirit of Christ (Rom. 8:9). No matter how nice, how educated, how beautiful or handsome they are . . . IF a person is not spiritually born again into God’s family (John 1:12-13; 3:3-8), they are enemies of God.
#4. Those Who Attack God's TRUE Children
All those who attack God's children are the enemies of God. The apostle Paul BEFORE his conversion attacked the children of God. But while he was on his way to deal severely with the apostles, there was a blinding flash of light and then the voice sounded, "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me...?" Saul was persecuting the body of Christ on earth, and Jesus made it clear to him that it was Him, Jesus the Lord, that he was persecuting.
Any and all those who are fighting the children of God in one way or the other, set themselves up as enemies of God. The Bible says the Lord shall laugh them to scorn. The Lord shall laugh at them. Psalm 37:11-13 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. 12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth. 13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming. (KJV)
So, as I see it, NOT one of God’s enemies will be caught up at the Rapture! But . . . if they are left behind, they still have a chance to avoid the agonizing lake of fire (Rev.20:15). But it will be a very hard row to hoe (Rev.20:4).
