Welcome to the RAPTURE PAGES
A Berean Study of the Endtimes

What does the BIBLE really say about the timing of the


 And when these things begin to come to pass, then LOOK UP,
and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

 
 
The RAPTURE of the church is that time when a trumpet will sound, and our Lord Jesus (Yeshua in Hebrew) will descend from heaven with a shout, and we believers who are alive at the time will rise to meet our Lord in the air, our mortal bodies being changed into glorified immortal bodies. This is a literal future event. No "virtual" reality needed here.

Believers have long argued about when the rapture would occur. Most agree that "no one knows the day or hour" but considering that over one third of the Holy scriptures are prophetic in nature, few people have really dug in to find the truth for themselves. Most will agree with their pastor, or with some famous theologian who has written extensively or spoken persuasively on the subject, but do we dare delegate that task (and when we don't study for ourselves, isn't that exactly what we are doing) when being wrong means leading our loved ones headlong into the "great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever shall" totally UNPREPARED???

Let me pause for a moment and say that if you have not yet trusted the Messiah to pay the penalty for your sins and save you from an eternity of pain and despair, then when the Lord comes for His own, you won't be going anywhere. You will be left down here to go through the day of the Lord's wrath, and then it's off to... well, you know where, but your fate is not fixed in stone... not yet.  The GOOD NEWS is that TODAY the Lord is offering you the FREE GIFT of SALVATION. Like any other gift, though, it will do you no good unless you accept it. Follow the link right now to learn how to receive it.

If you have already received the Lord, then you already have your "ticket to heaven" (so to speak), but when do we leave? Maybe you think that we are out of here before the "seven year tribulation" begins (Pre-Tribber), or perhaps you are one of those who just isn't really concerned about it because you think everything will pan-out in the end (a.k.a. Pan-Tribber :-). You are the very brothers and sisters I would beg to read my Letter of Warning. Do not delay! The safety of your family may very well depend on it.
