The rapture is one of the most hotly debated aspects of the Lord’s Prophetic Word. There are many different views of what it is and when it will happen, and I happen to find this fact to be deeply unsettling. If believers would simply learn to read the Scriptures and let the Lord’s Word testify for itself, there would be little room for debate. Why? Because the Scriptures are actually pretty clear as to when the rapture happens. The only reason there is debate is because too many believers keep trying to force the teachings of men on top of the Lord’s Word (see, ‘the man of lawlessness’). I know that this will be difficult for many, but, if you will try to erase everything you have learned about the rapture and give me a few minutes of your time, I think I can actually prove this to you. Will you do that? Will you give me your sincere, open-minded attention long enough for me to make my case? If so, then I invite you to keep reading. Otherwise, I humbly beg that we part in peace now, lest we cause an unnecessary rift in the Body of Christ.
