Israel and the Last Days

The rapture of the Church has been a hotly debated topic for a long time. One would claim the rapture would occur before the tribulation, another would say in the middle, and still another at the end of the tribulation.

What Happens at the Rapture?

Excerpted with permission of WestBowPress.

 

The rapture of the Church has been a hotly debated topic for a long time. One would claim the rapture would occur before the tribulation, another would say in the middle, and still another at the end of the tribulation. The question is, where does the rapture of the church fit when the tribulation spoken of in Daniel has already come and gone? With the fulfillment of the seventy weeks of Daniel, there cannot be a seven-year great tribulation. Actually, what I am about to share with you is the first thing God revealed to me about the end times nearly ten years ago. This revelation is what started me looking in depth at the end times. After God showed this to me, I knew there was more to learn. First, we must understand what the rapture is.

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the Scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.

After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed. Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?” (1 Cor. 15:1–12 KJV).
