What Is It? When Is It? Rapture
1 Thessalonians 4:15-18
What is the rapture? When is the rapture? The rapture of the church is one of the most significant future events mentioned in the Bible. Its significance, as well as its uniqueness in Scripture, are good reasons for you to know as much about this Biblical event as possible. Another good reason is found in the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20). Believers are supposed to be learning and teaching the things that Jesus taught His disciples. Jesus not only taught His disciples what the rapture is, but when they could expect it to happen. No man, no angel, nor Jesus himself knows the day or the hour (Matthew 24:36). But, Jesus did teach that there are some specific signs that will reveal a time immediately preceding the rapture. He also sent an angel to a man named John on the Island of Patmos to personally deliver specific instructions about these final days on earth. That conversation resulted in the Book of Revelation! In this message, you will receive a good foundation for your future study and exploration of the apocalyptic event called THE RAPTURE!
