The Rapture


You've probably heard the term 'The Rapture' used at some point in your life, whether it was by a friend, on Tv show, or in church. It likely conjures up images of people who were 'good' or 'model humans' their whole lives floating up into heaven. This is the secular definition of the rapture which is far from the biblical one, although a few factors are the same. The definition from the bible is as follows:


"The Rapture, otherwise known as "the Harpazo" is a Christian religious event in which the believers saved in Jesus Christ and those younger than the accountable age vanish instantly from earth in the "twinkling of an eye" to meet Jesus in the air, to then be taken to heaven." Of course, this definition leaves out the absolute horror that is to follow on the earth in the time known as the 'tribulation'. This is the point in which God himself intervenes sending massive earthquakes, meteors, plagues and famine upon the planet in an attempt to bring His people - Israel, back to Him.


The big question is whether you simply dismiss it as ancient folk tales, or whether you believe it has even the slightest chance of coming true. If you're even the slightest part inquisitive into why millions of people believe in this 'preposterous' event then you've come to the right place.


With the world on the brink of utter chaos and insanity, the rapture has never been closer! Honestly, everything you see happening around you is the foreshadowing of the events detailed in revelation. Or perhaps it's already happened but you're questioning whether it was the rapture or something else. If so - jump straight into the "Part 7 - Left Behind" section below.


These are the links to every part of my blogged rapture series. If you prefer to download it all in one go and read it in a convenient PDF format, then download it at my 'The Rapture Survival Guide (TRSG)' page.
