Is It True.
Some people do not believe that the Rapture will take place before Armageddon because the word Rapture has not been seen in the Bible. What people need to understand however, is that the bible has been translated from a few different languages. The word Rapture comes from a Latin word " Rapturo" which, is a translation from a greek word, which means " Caught". For many years people have predicted when Armageddon will come, but none of them have been correct. Even Jesus did not know know when the end of times would take place. Only God knows.
However, there are many amazing passages in the bible that do tell us the Rapture will take place.
2 Thessalonians 2:17 For the mystery of the lawlessness is already is already at work, he who restrains to do so until, will be taken out of the way. This means that people who love God and have thanked Him for the Crucifixion of Jesus will be taken off the earth before Armageddon.
Corinthians 15:51-52 Behold I show you a mystery we shall not be asleep, but we shall all be changed in a moment in a twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet the dead shall be raised and we shall be changed. This also means the Rapture is true, because why just describe the living? In Revelation, 20:12 We are told that the dead had been taken from the sea. So, the earth cannot keep anything away from God.
1 Thessalonians 16-17 For the Lord Himself will descend from Heaven with a shout with the voice of the Archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we always be with the Lord.
There are books in the Old Testament and the New Testament that prophets tell us about the Rapture. So while some people do not believe in the Rapture simply because the word does not appear in the bible, It must be true, because it have been told to us over and over.
