Do you believe in a Rapture before Judgment Day?

    Do you believe in a Rapture before Judgment Day?

    The Rapture and Judgment Day differs in origin.1Thess 4 v 13-17...refer to JUDGMENT DAY and the 6th and the 7th time span and events of the 7 seals.
    1 Cor 15 v 50-54....also refer to JUDGMENT DAY.
    Matt 24 v 40,41...ONE SHALL BE TAKEN and the other SHALL BE LEFT refer to ONE GOING TO HEAVEN and the other GOING TO HELL...also refer to JUDGMENT DAY
    The title Rapture should not be use ,because it will cause the unaware to be MISLED.It is a made-up title that have cause many to take a wrong turn in seeking and knowing about JUDGMENT DAY.
    Have you FALLEN for a NONE EXISTENT made-up  so-call Rapture?

    No. I don't believe in a "Judgement Day" either.

    jack,
    i don't believe in either the rapture or judgement day.  if god exists and he is a merciful god, how can he doom a whole segment of believers without giving them the opportunity to repent?  on judgement day, how does that god condemn souls to eternity in hell?  eternity is a long time.  what kinds of sins yield a sentence that long?

    In Islamic Belief ... we firmly Believe, in an eventful Period, with distinct Signs of the "Judgment Day's" ... Immanence

    This Period, with many Signs, shall Culminate, in the Second Coming of Jesus, the Christ. Peace be upon him.

    I therefore, understand the Biblical term, Rapture, as meaning, the Period, preceding, but also Including, the Judgment Day.

    What I am confused about is this.

    If only 3 - 5% of the world's population was to be Raptured and have an eternal life but much more than that is of the Christian religion what does that mean.

    Does that mean all the people who said they accepted Christ as their Savior have been betrayed?  I never heard a sermon in which the pastor, as he exhorted the congregation to step forward and proclaim their belief, mention that if they were lucky they might make the A team and be among the 5% to live forever in heaven with God.

    Something smells like fish - pardon the connection to the symbol of Christianity but really, don't Christians know math?

    seriously, it's all a myth and i honestly believe even most religious people understand this.

    Short answer = no
    But it does make you think 'what if?"

    Read a comic book yesterday called "Pride & Prejudice, & Zombies" - where life continues in a new normal.

    I did a Hub on the 'new normal' wehre people use the lobotomized zombies as slaves instead of killing them outright.

    I believe the rapture is a misinterpetation of several bible verses.  When Jesus returns in glory the rightious will meet him in the air,,i,e, be lifted up.  Filled with his spirit and glory.  Then  they will return to earth with him to subdue all kingdoms under his feet.

    The rapture is most often thought of in the sense of being a pre tribulation event.  The tribulation is of a duration of seven years, and starts with the "in place of Christ" signing a seven year peace treaty between Israel and the rest of the entire world - those seven years are to be the worst seven years in human history.  I'd rather be "raptured."

    I believe something or "God(s)" created the Universe and and everything within it.  I don't think we can even comprehend what that looks like and just because a book or a man speaking the word of God says so...doesn't make it so.  IMO, sometimes the unknown is important to remain unknown.  We, as a society don't need to know the reasons how the universe was created, the origin or reemergence of any "God(s), or what happens after we die.  All of that to me is pointless because people should live their lives today respectfully and honestly without leaning on any religion because history has clearly dictated the religion is a top reason why wars have been fought!

    No, the rapture is never actually mentioned in scripture, so I see no reason to believe it

    No, why would I believe in judgment day and rupture? Everyday is a blessing. no one can ever say when this world will end.

    Anyone who has been touched by God, knows that rapture and tribulation is a myth. By knowing God's infinite goodness and love you can know the higher truths that supersedes anything written in the bible or other holy books.

    Many will not accept this beautiful and joyful message because this is too Good to be true. They cannot believe that God is this Good. Some prefer to see a God that is not this good.

    Jesus revealed in many parables that God is too Good for many to accept. In the parable of the Prodigal son and in the workers in vineyard. Jesus showed that the well-behaved son was not happy with his father when his prodigal brother was restored to  full dignity. The workers in the vineyard who got a day's wage as promised were not happy to hear that those who worked only a few hours also got a full day's wage.

    Those who promote this rapture and tribulation are not happy to see others who they feel are not worthy as them to get away without God's punishment. They don't like a God that is not judgmental.  So they promote the fear of God with rapture, tribulation, Judgement day and so forth.

    Hopefully you can see a far more magnificent, wonderful and loving God. Fear not, because you are always dear to Him.
