2 Thessalonians 2 v 1:
“Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers,
not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come
from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come. Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way,
for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man
doomed to destruction”
Hebrews 9 v 28:
“So Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second
time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him”
There are many other verses we could also look at, but space does not allow it.
The RAPTURE is an event that brings comfort to the believer in Christ, because it is this event that will
Take him/her to be with Jesus Christ, for eternity.
When will the RAPTURE take place?
The basic answer is “we don’t know”. The Bible does not give a date, and we are told not to look for
one. But we have been given signs that point to this event and the coming of Jesus.
Jesus himself told the disciples of these signs in Matthew chapter 24.
Other signs include The formation of the Nation of Israel again after 2000 years of being scattered
around the world. This event happened in 1948.
Another major event that occurred that points to the nearness of the rapture is that of the 1967 six-day
war, when Israeli troops took back Jerusalem from the Gentiles. The bible tells us that the generation that
witnesses this great event would be alive at the time of the rapture.
Scholars have suggested that a generation spans around 40 years and if this is the time span of the
Generation that Jesus was talking of...........
It cannot be long before the RAPTURE occurs ! ! !
