RAPTURE BIBLE STUDY
provides this Rapture Bible study trek for truth from Rapture Bible verses such as Rapture timing as well as Rapture prophecy. We'll look into that and all aspects of the End Times revealing truth and bringing forth understanding and peace as you prepare for the End Times.
Welcome to our Christianity Oasis End Times Bible study program. This is our absolutely awesome, very popular and guest favorite Rapture Bible study journey into various Rapture Bible verses found throughout the Bible seeking proof of the Rapture timing as Rapture prophecy foretells of it and what this Rapture Bible promise has to do with Christians today. The extremely exciting and breathtaking message within this Rapture Bible study voyage searching for the Rapture timing truth will bring a smile to your lips and heart and shine a LIGHT upon your Christian walk path.
Let us begin, shall we? Many are very eager to point out that the word "Rapture" is not even in the KJV Bible and they are correct. However, there is abundant amount of Scripture proving that there is an upcoming event where Christians are taken to Heaven. The truth is ... The word Rapture is simply the word that Christians use to identify this event which is the carrying away of Christians to Heaven, during the End Times. In this Rapture Bible study on the Rapture prophecy we will learn that this Rapture Bible event is a very delicate subject to many Christians as there are many interpretations out there as to the Rapture and in particular, the Rapture timing. Many believe that the Rapture will occur BEFORE Tribulation, others believe that the Rapture will occur DURING Tribulation and still others believe that the Rapture will occur AFTER Tribulation. These various theories and the Christians' disagreement with one another on said theories have actually caused debates and even divided Christian friendships.
I realize that interpretation, pride and prejudice have divided the TRUE Church into many different "denominations" but, that was not what Jesus intended. That is Satan's plan of "dividing the house" not an example of God's Grace and Love between fellow Christians. Most of the divisions are based upon interpretation of the Bible. Other divisions stemmed from the pride of individuals wanting control, dating way back. Do not misunderstand me, there are many false Religions, false doctrines and misinterpretations of the Bible that one should beware of and to find out what beliefs are is wise, for we are taught to "Prove all things."
However, we should be able to search for the truth without dividing the Body of Christ.
We must choose to remember that we all come from diff backgrounds and may have varying beliefs and different interpretations of
specific Scriptures, but we all share one p common bond which should have us overcome these lil differences and that is our love for and belief in Jesus Christ, which makes us brothers and sisters in HIS family.
With that being said ... If you elect to partake of this Rapture Bible study focusing on the Rapture timing with an open mind and heart, with no preset ideas and using only God's Word as a foundation, you will find truth and the truth will either hurt or set you free depending on the mind and heart of the recipient. I know that you may have a certain belief, from reading or at least hearing about most Rapture Bible verses yourself, so I seek not to prove anyone wrong, but rather to let the Bible reveal what the truth is. I know that most Christians are devoted to their cause and can become quite stubborn if they deem the situation requires ... However, I also know there is a soul searcher within each of us and above all things we want to know God's truth as to share it, no matter what the truth is.
What is the Christian Rapture, when is the Christian Rapture, who will be in the Christian Rapture and why is there a Christian Rapture?
As I said before, the Rapture TIMING seems to be a major question which we will look into in this study, but there is another aspect of the Rapture that we will look into as well. It is the question of WHO WILL BE in this Rapture Bible event and WHO WILL NOT BE .. And why.
Let's get on with the Rapture Bible study on the many Rapture Bible verses now, shall we?
Most Christians believe that there is one rapture and that it will occur at one
time. There are many debates as to the timing of this ONE event and each shows
strong evidence in Scripture, that the Rapture is at this time or that time, to prove their
So ... Who is right?
What is the truth?
I mean ... They both have STRONG evidence using the same Bible.
What IF ...
THERE ARE TWO RAPTURES?
This is not as strange as it sounds as the Bible is filled with events which man believed was one event which are later to be found to be two separate events. Let us take a journey to discover the Rapture timing
FIELD TRIP INTO THE RAPTURE BIBLE VERSES
TWO COMINGS OF THE LORD
The first coming (visit) from our Lord was Him representing the Lamb to die
for our sins as to
Fulfill the Scriptures
and Jesus will return again as
the Lion when He defeats Antichrist and brings in eternal peace.
Ponder on this ...
When the prophecies in the Bible
of Jesus coming to earth were read by the religious leaders, they never
considered that there could be TWO arrivals of their Messiah. One to
save them from their sins by way of
and another return later which we will discuss more in detail.
They thought there was but
one, where the Messiah would come and break the chains and bring peace on
earth. They blinded themselves so much because of their limited preset
ideas that they crucified Jesus and most Israelites still deny the TRUTH to
this very day.
Now, with hindsight which provides
us with 20/20 spiritual insight, we can see by reading ALL of the
prophecy Scriptures with no preset ideas that there was not one coming
of Jesus, but rather two and it now makes perfect sense.
So, we await the return of Jesus.
The point is that the religious leaders failed to understand that their belief
limited God's plan in their own mind and heart. They could not see that
it could be something else, because they were blinded by pride. If they
had only required that all Scripture be in harmony, they would not have
missed the signs. Let us not be so blinded by our limited understanding as to follow the
God is God and we ... Ain't.
In our Rapture Bible study on Rapture prophecy from Rapture Bible verses, let us now ponder on this TRUTH ...There are even TWO deaths and TWO Resurrections ...
But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years
were finished. This is the
FIRST resurrection. Blessed and holy is
he that hath part in the
resurrection: on such the SECOND death hath no power,
but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign
with him a thousand years.
This is the Resurrection of the JUST:
And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee:
for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the
THEN AFTER THE 1000 YEARS OF
when the thousand years are expired,
Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to
deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth,
Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of
whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of
the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the
beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and
devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the
lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet
are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
Then comes the Great White Throne Judgment where the rest of the dead are resurrected (Second Resurrection) and those not found written in the Book of Life will experience
a second death ... Which is eternal.
And I saw
aGREATwhite throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the
earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for
them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and
the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the
book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which
were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea
gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up
the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man
according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the
lake of fire. This is the SECOND
death. And whosoever was not
found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
There are also TWO Covenants (Old Covenant and New
As you can see ... God is a God of
Let us further explore the
of there being TWO RAPTURES together in this Rapture Bible study on the Rapture timing ...
In the Book of Revelation, there are symbols used
to indicate time periods. We will be looking into these time periods.
There are the Seals, Trumpets and Vials ... There are seven of each one.
Now, as we search Rapture Bible verses about the Rapture timing, let us look at the time period known as the Seals ...
Immediately after the 6th Seal
, there is an event
that occurs which we will look into on this page. In the book of
Chapter 7, we find 144,000 people being sealed with the
seal of God.
And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were
sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand
of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben
were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve
thousand. Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe
of Nephthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were
sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve
thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe
of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Zabulon were
sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve
thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
receive a mark of protection cuz they are STAYING ON EARTH.
This seal will protect them from the events that
will be occurring on Earth.
These 144,000 are God's first fruit, or best
of the crop of the Israelites.
Even these are left on Earth during some
of the End Times events, but are protected.
According to other Scripture ... These 144,000 people are all virgin,
Jewish, Christian males.
And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on
the mount Sion, and with Him an
hundred forty and four thousand,
having His Father's name written in
their foreheads. And I heard a voice
from Heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great
thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And
they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four
beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred
and forty and four thousand,
were redeemed from the earth. These
are they which were not defiled with
they are virgins.
These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth. These were
redeemed from among men, being the
firstfruits unto God
and to the Lamb.
in their mouth was found no guile:
for they are without fault before the throne of God.
Immediately after the 144,000 receive their seal
of protection (Revelation 7:4-8) a large number of
of all races, will suddenly show up in Heaven.
When asked by
John who these people were, an Angel said
that these people are Christians which
were taken out of the Great Tribulation
that was occurring on Earth.
After this I beheld, and, lo,
a great multitude, which no man
could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues,
stood before the throne, and before the Lamb,
clothed with white robes,
and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation
to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. And all the
Angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four
beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God.
Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and
honor, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
And one of the
elders answered, saying unto me,
What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came
And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me,
they which came out of Great Tribulation, and have washed their robes,
and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before
the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His Temple: and He
that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no
more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor
any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed
them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall
wipe away all tears from their eyes.
In the Olivet Discourse, Which is Jesus
predicting the End Times, it spoke of
this Great Tribulation, so we are given the Rapture timing of
these Christians going to Heaven.
For then shall be great tribulation, such
as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever
shall be ...
AFTER these events are shared of, it then goes to the 7th
This tells us that
of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues
will be made white in the Blood of

up in Heaven in between the 6th

RAPTURE BIBLE VERSES PROPHECY
Now here is an event which we can use as a marker of timing ...
6th Seal speaks of the sun and moon getting dark and the stars falling
Let us look at the Olivet Discourse (Jesus
speaking of the End Times) to see if
there is mention of this event and see if Christians are being taken
from Earth to Heaven.
Immediately after the tribulation of
those days shall the sun be
darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall
from Heaven, and the powers of the Heavens shall be shaken: And then
shall appear the sign of the Son of man in Heaven: and then shall all the
tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the
clouds of Heaven with power and great glory. And He shall send His Angels
with a great sound of a trumpet, and
they shall gather together His elect
from the four winds, from one end of Heaven to the other.
It speaks of the
sun and moon turning dark and the stars falling, so we will look from
Verse 30 on ... It says that there was a sign in the Heavens and that
mankind would mourn and see Jesus coming in the clouds, which is very
similar to the 6th Seal ...
And the kings of the earth, and the
great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men,
and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in
the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on
us, and hide us from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne, and from
the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of His wrath is come; and who
shall be able to stand?
Immediately after this, we see in the Olivet
Discourse that Jesus has His Angels gather His elect (Christians) from
the four corners of the Earth.
shall send His Angels with a great sound of a
trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect
from the four winds, from one end of Heaven to the
We see in our Rapture Bible study on the very informative and concerning Rapture Bible verses that it goes on to say that two will be in the field and that one will be taken and the other LEFT BEHIND.
This event is known as ... RAPTURE.
It is when God gathers many of those who chose
to believe in Jesus and takes them to Heaven.
So, this particular "Rapture"
place between the 6th and 7th Seal.
This does NOT include EVERY Christian though, as
you will see.
For many people on Earth will be undecided or
double-minded, as far as their belief in Jesus, and there those who are not
selected to go to Heaven at this time (For whatever reason God chooses) will encounter an even more
frightening chain of events.

RAPTURE BIBLE PROPHECY CLUES
Now, let us look at the time period known as the
Remember ... The
Trumpets occur AFTER the Seals.
Immediately after the 6th Trumpet, (Between the
6th and 7th Trumpet) we come to
another strange event, just like the first "Rapture" that occurs in between
the 6th and 7th Seal.
(KEEP IN MIND THAT BOTH EVENTS OCCURRED BETWEEN THE 6th AND 7th.)
We are now at
Revelation, Chapter 10. This chapter
talks of an Angel, with a book in his hand, that came from Heaven. His
message is that there is no longer any time left.
And sware by
him that liveth for ever and ever, who created
heaven, and the things that therein are, and the
earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea,
and the things which are therein, that there should
be time no longer:
He says that
in the days of the 7th Trumpet
when it shall begin to sound, this
of God shall be finished.
But in the days of the voice of the seventh Angel,
when he shall begin to sound, the
of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
The trick is to find out what the "mystery" is.
Here it is ...
Behold, I shew you a
mystery; We shall not all sleep,
but we shall all be changed.
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the
Trumpet shall sound,
and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we
shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on
incorruption, and this mortal must put on
immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put
on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on
immortality, then shall be brought to pass the
saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in
It says that the
mystery is that we shall not all die, but shall be
changed at the
sounding of the 7th Trumpet.
Those that choose to believe in Jesus will change from
mortal to immortal.
another Scripture which confirms this ...
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also
which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him. 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. 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.
that the Lord shall descend from Heaven with the
Trumpet of God.
Those who are alive, will be "caught up" and meet the Lord in the AIR
But, what of these
dead souls being raised who meet up with these Raptured souls?

|What about these souls who died or will die as Christians?
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.

Him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on

RAPTURE BIBLE STUDY PUZZLE PIECES
Here is another lil tidbit to ponder on:
RAPTURE TIMING IS BECOMING CLEAR
RAPTURE BIBLE VERSES EMIT HOPE
And at that
time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for
the children of thy people: and
there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there
was a nation even to that same time:
and at that time thy people
shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the
And many of them that
sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake,
some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting
These Rapture Bible verses not only confirm
that many souls who are destined for everlasting life are NOT in Heaven as of
yet and shall be awakened from their rest to meet up with those who are Raptured ...
These verses also give us the timing of the Resurrection of those who sleep as
well as the timing of a Rapture as these meet in the air.
therefore shall see the abomination of desolation,
spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy
place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let
them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let
him which is on the housetop not come down to take
any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is
in the field return back to take his clothes. And
woe unto them that are with child, and to them that
give suck in those days! But pray ye that your
flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath
For then shall be great tribulation, such as
was not since the beginning of the world to this
time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days
should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved:
but for the elect's sake those days shall be
These two statements in both Daniel and Matthew confirm the timing:
there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was
a nation even to that same time ...
Another tidbit of evidence in our Rapture Bible study on the Rapture timing, Rapture prophecy and the Rapture Bible verses:
For then shall be great tribulation, such as
was not since the beginning of the world to this
time, no, nor ever shall be.
The Bible clearly indicates that when a Christian dies ... They take on a new incorruptible form and rise to Heaven
at the Last Trumpet.
Behold, I shew you a mystery;
We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in
the twinkling of an eye, at the
last trump: for the trumpet
shall sound, and the dead shall
be raised incorruptible,
and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on
incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this
corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have
put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is
written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
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.
THIS IS THE
SECOND RAPTURE WE HAVE DISCOVERED.
So, we have people showing up in Heaven in between
the 6th and 7th Seal ... AND people going up to Heaven in between the 6th and 7th
Hmmmmmmm, strange how they BOTH
happen between 6th and 7th, huh?
