THE COMING RAPTURE

IS THE RAPTURE COMING

Christianity Oasis provides you with this deLIGHTful journey into the coming Rapture to discover the truth of, when is the Rapture coming? We will look into the Rapture and all aspects of the Christian walk,including the End Times. Don't be scared. Be Prepared.





THE COMING RAPTURE JOURNEY
WHEN IS THE RAPTURE COMING

Welcome to our Christianity Oasis Daily Bread study program. This is our thought provoking and extremely essential ... The Coming Rapture trek for truth concerning the very popular question of, when is the Rapture coming? We will take an extensive look into the coming Rapture Scriptures to find out the answer to






To start this study from the beginning, Click Here

In the Olivet Discourse, Which is Jesus predicting the End Times, it spoke of this Great Tribulation, so we are given the timing of these Christians going to Heaven, which many call ... Rapture.

Matthew 24:21
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 things, it goes to the 7th seal.

This tells us that this group of Christians who are taken from the Earth, are taken in between the 6th and 7th Seal.

The 6th Seal speaks of the sun and moon getting dark and the stars falling ...

Let us look at the Olivet Discourse to see if there is mention of this event and see if Christians are being taken from Earth to Heaven.

Matthew 24:29-31
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 ...

Revelation 6:15-17
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?

Prepare for the coming Rapture Truth ... 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.

Matthew 24:31
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 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 the coming RAPTURE.

It is when God gathers many of those that chose to believe in Jesus and takes them to Heaven.

So, the FIRST "Rapture" ... Takes place between the 6th and 7th Seal.

When is the Rapture coming? Which one? The first coming Rapture 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 those who are not selected to go to Heaven at this time, will encounter an even more frightening chain of events.

SECOND RAPTURE


THE COMING RAPTURE WARNING
WHEN IS THE RAPTURE COMING TO GET CHRISTIANS

Now, let us look at the time period known as the Trumpets ...

Immediately after the 6th Trumpet, we come to another strange event, just like the first "Rapture" that occurs in between the 6th and 7th Seal.

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.

Revelation 10:6
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 "mystery" of God shall be finished.

Revelation 10:7
But in the days of the voice of the seventh Angel, when he shall begin to sound, the
mystery 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 ...

1 Corinthians 15:51-54
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.

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.

Here is another Scripture which confirms this ...

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
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.

It says 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?


THE COMING RAPTURE PROMISE
WHEN IS THE RAPTURE COMING FOR THE DEAD

What about these souls that died or will die as Christians?


John 5:28-29
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.

1 Thessalonians 4:14-18
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. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

John 6:40
And this is the will of Him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on Him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.





Here is another lil tidbit about the coming Rapture to ponder upon:

Daniel 12:1-2
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 book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

The Coming Rapture is not for everyone ... These verses not only confirm that many souls who are destined for everlasting life are NOT in Heaven as of yet and shall awake 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.

Matthew 24:15-22
When ye 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 Judea 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 day:
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 shortened.

These two statements in both Daniel and Matthew confirm the coming Rapture timing:

And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time. For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

One more tidbit concerning the coming Rapture evidence:

The Bible clearly indicates that when a Christian dies, they take on a new incorruptible form and rise to Heaven AT THE LAST TRUMPET !!!
.

1 Corinthians 15:51-54
When is the Rapture coming mystery ... 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.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
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


THE COMING RAPTURE PART TWO
WHEN IS THE RAPTURE COMING THE SECOND TIME

Wow ... So, it appears that we have people going up to Heaven in between the 6th and 7th Seal AND in between the 6th and 7th Trumpet. This means that there are two Raptures. Now, in between the 6th and 7th Trumpet ... Check out what is happening in Heaven to those who were just Raptured:

Revelation 15:1-3
And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven Angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. (VIALS) And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and
them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God
. And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.

These are Christianssinging the song of MOSES ...

In other words ... They are JEWISH Christians.

That means the people taken up in the second Rapture were Jewish, which makes perfect sense.

See in the first rapture, they were GENTILES ...

Revelation 7:9-15
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 honour, 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 they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are 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.

There are two Raptures ... One Rapture coming for Gentile Christians and One Rapture coming for the Jewish Christians.

These two coming Raptures are 3.5 years apart.

The End Times is seven years and Antichrist is only in the last 3.5 years.

The Jewish people had TWICE the time to follow God AND/OR accept Jesus. (Both old and New Covenants)

The time of the Gentiles was only during the NEW COVENANT.

The Gentiles did not make the choice to deny Jesus at His death, as the Old Covenant was only applicable to Jewish people. The Jewish people did deny and kill the Messiah so THEY will have to endure the Antichrist. NOT the believing Gentile Christians.

Something else to ponder on ... The 7th Trumpet pretty much ends the End Times, except for Vials which are only punishment for Antichrist and his followers, which according to the Word and discernmentlasts30 days.

Read this in CONTEXT. During the End Times ...

Daniel 12:10-12
Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried
; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. (1260 days is how long Antichrist reigns terror) Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

There is an extra 30 days AFTER Antichrist reigns terror that the abomination of desolation still stands but Antichrist is no longer reigning as the Kingdoms of the world became the Lord's at the end of the 7th Trumpet as it is written...

Revelation 11:15
And the seventh Angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying,
The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ
; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

Therefore ... The next thing after the 7th Trumpet is the 7 Vials so they last 30 days.

then comes Armageddon ...


THE COMING RAPTURE CONCLUSION
WHEN IS THE RAPTURE COMING SUMMARY

As you can imagine, the Great Tribulation will cause MUCH damage and disease, so these Christian people in hiding (who will repopulate the earth during the Millennium) are told not to come out for an additional 45 days after the 30 days after the 1260 days = 1335 days

Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

Then comes the Millennium ...

BE PREPARED

The Coming Rapture Scripture that we have looked at sharing with us the answer to the question, when is the Rapture coming clearly states ... Nobody knows the exact day, but it IS certain that the coming Rapture could occur at any time.

Matthew 25:13
Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
