|Proof Showing When the Rapture Happens.
It Could Be Sooner Than You Think.
The rapture is probably one of the most controversial topics in the Bible. Some don’t believe it will
happen and those that do are divided as to when. This should not be because the Bible is very
clear that a rapture will happen and even shows us when it will. In fact, Jesus spoke a lot about the
rapture as did Paul. But to understand it, we have to look at ALL the scriptures that deal with the
resurrection and rapture and not just a few of them. A detailed study is on my website under Jesus
– Resurrection/Rapture and After We Die so I will only summarize here.
Before we go any further, we need to clarify one misconception that has misled many believers.
The Bible clearly teaches that no one goes to heaven until the resurrection. You may be shocked
to hear this because we have been taught that believers go to heaven immediately or shortly after
death. It sounds good at funerals to think that our loved ones are in heaven, but the Bible does not
teach that. There are many scriptures that confirm this, but let me show you the smoking gun one
“For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own turn, Christ, the
firstfruits, then when he comes those who belong to him.” 1 Corinthians 15:22-23
Paul is speaking about the resurrection. And what he says is that because we came from Adam, we
will all die, but because we believe in Christ, we will all receive eternal life. But when? When
Jesus comes. And when is Jesus coming? At the resurrection. So this scripture is perfectly clear
that no one goes to heaven until the resurrection.
Here’s one more. “Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves
will hear his voice and come out; those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who
have done what is evil will rise to be condemned.” John 5:28-29
Jesus is speaking about the resurrection. And where are those who will be resurrected? In their
graves, they are not in heaven or in hell.
Now think about it logically. If all believers go to heaven upon death, then at the resurrection, who
gets resurrected? It doesn’t make sense does it. Neither does scripture confirm it. In fact then you
get these weird doctrines that believers go to heaven at death, but they don’t get a body until the
resurrection. How foolish. As if God can’t give them a body but makes them wait until the
resurrection. Or that believers go to heaven, but just before the resurrection, they go back into
their graves. Does anyone have a scripture to back this foolish doctrine up? I strongly suggest
you check out the studies on my website and see all the scriptures that confirm what I am telling
you here and then decide for yourself what you want to believe.
So, let’s go on. The two scriptures that talk about the rapture are 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 and 1
Corinthians 15:51-52. However they speak also about the resurrection. Therefore, it’s not possible
to speak of one without speaking of the other because they happen as one event. The resurrection
is for dead believers, and the rapture is for alive believers. The dead rise first, and then those that
remain and are alive are caught up (raptured) with them to meet the Lord in the air. So the proper
term is resurrection/rapture. If you still don’t believe this, then I suggest you check out the
scriptures on my website and decide for yourself. But, let’s go on.
Because the Bible clearly teaches that no one goes to heaven until the resurrection/rapture, then in
Revelation 7:9+ when John sees a multitude that no one could count from every nation, language,
tribe and people standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb, one thing becomes very
obvious. The resurrection/rapture must have happened. Otherwise they would not yet be there.
And because God wants us to know this, the angel goes to John and asks him “Hey John, where did
these people come from?” And John says “I don’t know”. So he tells him. They came out of great
tribulation. Notice he says “came out” he doesn’t say they were killed or that they died, they came
out. What does that mean? It means they were resurrected and raptured because there is no other
possible explanation for how they could have gotten there.
So we can see that the resurrection/rapture happens after the opening of the 6th seal, which is
when the Tribulation starts. How do we know that? Read Rev 6:17, it tells us. “For the great day
of their wrath has come…” This is the Day of the Lord, the Day of God’s Wrath, the start of the
Tribulation. And this is when the resurrection/rapture happens. At the end of the Tribulation,
Jesus comes back WITH his saints to set up his kingdom on earth, but that’s another story. We
need those 7 years in heaven to learn how we are going to re-build the earth when we come back.
Because the world is on the brink of a financial collapse, we can see that we are at the 3rd
horseman. So we are very close to start of the Tribulation. The seals are opened before the
Tribulation because the Tribulation is a 7 year period, and some of the events of the seals take
more than 7 years to come to fulfillment, this is why the seals are opened before the Tribulation
begins. For example, our monetary crisis took years of poor money management to come to this
point, and it may take a few more years before it takes a days wages to buy a loaf of bread.
Therefore, it is not necessary for one seal to come to fulfillment before the next seal is opened.
They can overlap each other. So, if ISIS is the 4th horseman, then we are good to go. The
Tribulation can happen. But when? And this brings us to God’s Calendar.
God is very precise and never misses an appointment. As the plan for salvation was set out in the
Garden of Eden, the plan for redemption was set out through Moses in the desert. In Leviticus 23
God set out 7 feasts (or divine appointments) that Israel was to keep. Jesus already fulfilled 4 of
those 7 feasts. Next up is the Feast of Trumpets. Eventhough it happens every year, Jesus can
only fulfill this feast once every 7 years. And that brings us to the second part of God’s Calendar.
In Leviticus 25, God established the 7 year cycles for the Jews. It’s main purpose was to regulate
the economy so that no one would get too rich or too poor because every 7 years loans were
cancelled. And if someone lost their property, every 50 years everyone got their property back.
They were also to give the land a rest every 7th year. Regardless of whether the Jews still
observe it or not, this 7 year cycle pattern is still in effect. Because the Tribulation is also a 7 year
period, it cannot interrept another 7 year cycle, so it too can only start on a certain day once every 7
years and that day is the first day of the next 7 year cycle. The next two times that the Tribulation
can start and that Jesus can fulfill the Feast of Trumpets is either this September 13 from 11am EST
to Sept 15 at 11am EST or else it cannot happen for another 7 years.
So the question is this: Is the Tribulation, the resurrection/rapture, and the Feast of Trumpets
fulfillment going to happen on Sept 13 of this year, or can we wait another 7 years. The way the
world is going at warp speed, I don’t think we can survive another 7 years without God’s
intervention. So I believe it’s time to get right with God and start looking up, there could be only a
few days left before he comes.
