    1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 THE RAPTURE 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 5:2 second coming

    "For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night." If you have ever known a thief, or got to know how they think and work; you'd better understand the way the Lord uses this for a comparison. But in addition to the way the thief works, which is important to know about the Day of the LORD; the fact that He has had His eye on them and planning well ahead.

    Thank you Ray for your intelligent post; very good! It is because of the very common fantasy MIS-teaching about the Rapture being seven years before the Tribulation, that many are completely scandalized by the idea of actually having to suffer on account of their faith in Jesus. Their Pastors and Teachers have caused this, and will be held accountable for all who might be lost because of it.

    Ray: We are in The Tribulation. It started a few Thousand years ago.--In The World Ye shall have Tribulation---. John 16:33 /--- We Glory in Tribulations---Romans 5:3. Tribulation is for The Saved. Wrath is for The Lost. No one knows when The Rapture happens. If We are here when The Wrath comes We will be Protected by The Blood. We Shall be Saved from Wrath through Him. Romans 5:9. Keep looking Up
  • Ray321
