  • The rapture is when Jesus returns for a second time and calls his believes home with him. No one knows when this will be, although some may claim to. We may know the "season" but not the "hour". You want to know Jesus before this happens

    "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: 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. Wherefore comfort one another with these words." (1 Thess, 4:16-18).

    Following the rapture and the signing of a treaty with Isreal a 7 year tribulation will begin for those left on earth.

  • ummm I believe the OP is talking about the end times.
    this si what I found on the internet

    "The Second Coming of Christ will occur in stages. First, He will remove all Christians from the Earth, to protect them. This is called "The Rapture." The term comes from the Latin verb raptare, and the Greek word harpizo, both meaning "to be caught up" or "to be snatched up." Jesus will "snatch us" out of harm's way. "
