What Is The Rapture?
The Rapture is an end-times event where Jesus returns to gather up all His children. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 says “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.”
When Will The Rapture Occur?
No one but God the Father knows when the Rapture will occur but we believe the Rapture is near and it is right at the door. The rapture will be instantaneous, in "the twinkling of an eye" (1 Corinthians 15:51-52). All believers will suddenly, without warning, disappear from the earth. Scripture nowhere encourages us to try to determine the date of Jesus' return. Rather, we are to “keep watch, because we do not know on which day our Lord will come” (Matthew 24:42). We are to “be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when we do not expect Him” (Matthew 24:44).
Who Will Be Included In The Rapture?
Everyone who has accepted Jesus as their Savior and Lord (believers) and have endured until the end (walked in the ways of God) and children under the age of reasoning.
Who Will Not Be Included In The Rapture?
Anyone who has not accepted Jesus as their Savior and Lord (non-believers).
Are You Ready?
Are you a believer who will be included in the Rapture or are you a non-believer who will be left behind to face the Great Tribulation?
If you have not accepted Jesus as your Savior and Lord, we encourage you not to wait. Why take a chance, be left behind, and suffer the consequences. To learn how to get ready, please read our “Most Important Question” Page at http://www.primelifeministries.org.
