hehe ^_^...the rapture is a word that many Christians use to describe the 2nd coming of Jesus...where he'll take us to the "new heaven and new Earth"...um read the book of Revelation for more detail...

lol, this sounds about right:

First, He will remove all Christians from the Earth, to protect them. This is called "The Rapture." The term comes from the Latin verb raptare, and the Greek word harpizo, both meaning "to be caught up" or "to be snatched up." Jesus will "snatch us" out of harm's way.

1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 According to the Lord's own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.

This Age (Y2K) I think Reveals the Revelation. It's because the Signs and Plagues that were stated in the Bible slowly happens. Like Typhoons and Storms that recently visited some Countries.

Being alert is what we have to do. Since the coming of The Lord Jesus Christ is Fast Approaching. They said that, Christ will come down to earth when the His Gospel has been preached to all Nations. So I guess, there are still places in where they still don't know the Great news (The salvation of the world). It might be even in our own Neighborhoods.

But in my case, When that time comes ( i mean the Rapture ) i really like to be one of those persons that God will rise in the Air (Just imagine yourself floating in the atmosphere). Cause i don't want to be persecuted


Just out of curiousity, where in the Bible does it say that during the rapture people will rise in the air?! I was just wondering b/c I was having a conversation about that the other day..

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 this is from the ESV, but depending on the translation people can argue the point that it simply means something else, however the ESV is: "The English Standard Version (ESV) Bible is a new, essentially literal Bible translation that combines word-for-word precision and accuracy..." (ESV.org)
I first was thinking revelation, but upon further investigation of my notes this seems to explain it best found in 1 Thessalonians 4:17 to be specific.

But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. 14 For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. 15 For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, [4] that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.

Hope it helped.

Thank you. =)

They say in the Last Days, either the world will experience a Global Spiritual Awakening or succumb to a One World Order, which involves the "bio-chip". I really hope the former occurs. =/

Then u can argue post-trib, pre-trib, and mid-trib. I don't remember if we discussed this, I believe in Pre-tribulation, but all sides stem from the bible.

http://www.geocities.com/~lasttrumpet/ can help explain the parts, but take it as a grain of salt, decide for yourself what you believe not what you have read or what someone tells you to believe.

Personally, I'd like to see it all happen, but then again I'm sorta selfish like that. However, what will happen is probably something else all together.
Posted 8/13/08

Greetings, I wish to assist in your understanding. What parts do you exactly need clarification? And it's best to seek the word for the answers rather than trusting us for interpretations, we all interpret things differently. But to answer your question about the anti-Christ...

1 John chapter 2

Mark 13:32 (explains when He will come)

Revelation... there is too many to number.

The bible speaks in metaphors, so when u read dragon or serpent you know of whom they speak.

In all honesty your local church or elder would be best to explain topics such as revelation and Romans, they are very hard books to follow and I am afraid most of us don't quite understand the full meaning. Scholars study the bible for century and a lot of them are uncertain of matters such as pre-trib rapture, post trib, and matters that far elude our realm of thought.

Feel free to pm me with any questions I will do my best to help.

actually in the bible, it wasn't really stated [the details of rapture] but scholars who were used by God interpreted and predicted or foretold the things that might happen in the rapture.
