Prophecies of Revelation

The rapture


Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. John 5:28-29

The "RAPTURE" and the "SECOND COMING" are TWO SEPARATE EVENTS in the Bible!

The "rapture" is the first event which we are expecting at any moment now (referenced in 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18Bible quote(verse 14) For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

(verse 15) For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive [and] remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

(verse 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:

(verse 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.

(verse 18) Wherefore comfort one another with these words.1 Thessalonians 4 verses 14-18
). Jesus will NOT set foot on this earth for the rapture. The "second coming," per just what it says "SECOND COMING," will be the second event and it will occur at the END of the tribulation period when Jesus returns to take all the people who made a commitment to Him during the tribulation period. This is referenced in Revelation.

Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen. "I am the Alpha and the Omega, [the] Beginning and [the] End," says the Lord, "who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty." Revelation 1:7-8

Jesus will step foot on the earth at the Mount of Olives. Armageddon will begin, then when the war ends, the Millenial Reign will begin.

Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. Acts 1:11

People are having such a great time in this lousy world. So many people in love with this world, the things in this world, and they are willing to run over anyone who stands in the way of their dreams so much so that they do not want the Lord to come because they want to stay here with all their fame, fortune, and power, especially in America. I wake up everyday wondering if today will be the day the Lord will come. It is a blessing to be separated from the world church of greed and selfishness because otherwise I might have become as they are, wrapped up in this worthless world instead of looking for and expecting to see Jesus.

The next event on God's prophetic clock is the Rapture, a word that is derived from the Latin word rapturo, meaning, "a snatching away." The Rapture is that dramatic moment when the Lord Jesus Christ comes in clouds of glory to remove from this world all who have died in Christ along with the living from the Day of Pentecost until Christ comes to "snatch" His children upward and home in the twinkling of an eye. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 teaches:
