Christians: Will There Be a Rapture?
Christians are divided on whether or not we are correct to believe in a rapture. What do you think?
It is written in scriptures that some time around 30 AD; Jesus said that all of these things shall be fulfilled in "THAT" generation but that no one knows what day or hour they will be finished. That is like when the first Supper Bowl was played (American football) someone may have said that Super bowl XXV will be played in their lifetime but no one knows what day and hour it will be played and no one knows who will be playing in it..
Both statements were true when they were stated ..... Looking back in time, we know when the Supper Bowl was played and who won it.
If we are to believe prophesy, by reading history we know when the Rapture happened.
When the 14th king (Emperor) of the fourth kingdom comes to his end (dies) Michael shall stand up for the children of Daniels people and some will be redeemed from among man and some shall be called from their graves. Daniel 11:45
This happened in 138 AD while the Hebrew Nation was being dispersed through out the rest of the Roman Empire. When the power of the Holy people was being scattered to the four winds. When the sacrifice was taken away to another place, At this time Gods wife, the woman in Rev 12, was carried away into the wilderness. All of the OT prophesy was pertaining to and delivered to to "That Hebrew Nation that ceased to exist around 138 AD.
At that time Gods covenant with Abraham and every amendment added to it was made null and void.
For Christ had made a NEW Covenant and none of the OT prophesy was a part of the New Covenant.
In my opinion there won't be a 'Rapture'. I believed for many years the doctrine of Dispensationalism which teaches this view, but on closer examination of the Scriptures I am now convinced it is incorrect.
The first Hard Core evidense And/or Description of it is written in Daniel 12:1
Children of Daniels people (Hebrews). And again in Revelation where they are described as being from the 12 tribes of Israel. There hasn't been 12 tribes for a lo....
The 12 tribes of Israel in Rev. symbolize the "firstfruits" for God & Christ (14:4), the first of those who come after them in 14:16. Israel has become all those who are “the children of the promise” Rom 9:8, not just Abraham's physical decendant
I'm not a Dispensationalism, but on closer examination of the Scriptures I am now convinced there is a rapture. From my studies I conclude that is what is depicted in Revelation 14 and I explain my conclusions in my hubs, "End Time Rapture & Losers in Revelation" and "The Central Idea in Revelation's Tribulation Chapters" (where the chiastic structure points at it) and "Contrasts of Symbols in Revelation - Two Harvests" (how the harvests, one which is the rapture, fit the literary style to bring this out). I've long questioned if and when the rapture is and now feel, for me, I've gained the clarity on this I have longed for.
Yes, the Rapture will definitely happen very soon.....it's all in the bible. We don't know the hour or the day, only God knows. All of the biblical prophesies have come true.......the only one left is the rapture
Yes, there will be a Rapture....the Bible teaches that it will be at the end of the Tribulation, at the 7th Trumpet, when Jesus returns. (Matthew 24). It also gives us hints as to how it will happen.....as in the day of Noah, and when Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed. Right before the flood started, Noah got into the Ark. Right before God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, Lot was taken out of danger. Those things were given to us as an example of what to expect. Neither Lot or Noah were "raptured to Heaven", but they were taken to a place of safety, right before God's wrath fell upon the earth. So it will be with us.....it implies that we will not be whisked away to Heaven before the Tribulation, but we will be taken to a place of safety while the Tribulation is happening. Look at the Israelites....God's wrath fell upon Egypt with plagues, locusts, etc....but they were not harmed.....so it will be with Christians, I believe, during the Tribulation....we will have to go through it, but we will all be protected until Jesus comes back to gather His saints at the last trumpet...AFTER the Tribulation.
You can count on it there will be a rapture for sure. read revelations if you doubt it?
Yes There will Be a Rapture But It will Not Be Until after The Great White Throne of Judgment.
There is no Pre-Trib Rapture for there has never been such a thing and there is nothing New under This Son or our Sun.
Satan wishes for those to believe yet another lie for when it appears to happen he would have stolen and murdered many would be believers who were ready to repent truthfully.
666 is the sign we are watching for the sixth seal, Vial, and Trump. I have not yet come to known they have been broken, poured, or sounded yet have You? The seventh is not the End of It all only the End of Flesh and Satan's reign as God of this Planet.
There Is a Time for his release and his final attempt at being God of it this planet.
During his time in the lake of fire all flesh that remain alive will still be here and be Instructed by Jesus Himself and the Elect of this world. The Millennium, still no rapture will have occurred.
God is not out there bringing you back here in your flesh. You will never have a flesh body again but will have your true body that you began with whatever that body is it will look much like you. The Events come as a women travaileth one immediately after the other.
No free pass for the so called church for it wont be of age until after the Millennium. Once truth has been taught and all comprehend it as the truth. Satan is then released for a little season. to try and confuse the truth again. After this season we are separated and Tried by GOD The Father.
The Great White Throne can now appear and Judge the World. After This the Marriage takes place and the Rapture is Felt for we that remain will be gathered into the wedding feast. This is the Only Event I can equate to a Great Gathering and That is all a rapture Is. After This the New Heaven and The New Earth are establish By Father. The Rest is all a mystery yet to come. For The story is over a happy ending For GOD's Children and all else will be as it never was. No more Tears!

Is there going to be a Rapture?No, there's not. The "Rapture" refers to a passage in First Thessalonians, chapter 4, which talks about Christians being "caught up" in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Many Christians believe, and the "Left Behind" books promote,...

If only 144,000 will be ruling with Jesus on the Kingdom on earth..how come so many believe that wheIn the Lord's prayer we ask that His kingdom be on Earth as in Heaven. So it means that if there is a Earthly Kingdom..there has to be people living in it..right? So it is logical then that not...

When you read the Book of Revelations, it reads like a good sci-fy story, or mythical mystery novel does. Maybe this is because of the fact that the Book of Revelations is virtually a storyline about a dream, which a man named John once had a long, long, long time ago.Most scholars now agree that...
