It was a doctrine that was popularized at the end of the 19th century. The belief that there would be a pre-Tribulation rapture.

The ‘Rapture’ myth continued being supported by various evangelists and theologians throughout generations of believers.

It has become such an accepted belief here in Wellington, Kansas and other places that few question it.

Scripture says that at the time of the Lord’s return, “every eye shall see Him.” (Rev. 1:7)

Well, if that is true, then how can everyone see him (assuming this verse refers to those remaining on Earth) if all of the believers have been raptured? That makes no sense.

The logical belief here would be that “every eye shall see Him” because no one has been raptured before the Tribulation. That the rapture (which is not a Biblical term, by the way) would actually happen, during the days of Antichrist, after the destruction of the world as we know it. Doesn’t this make more sense?

According to Scripture, the rapture – the ‘snatching away’ – will occur when the last trumpet sounds, the seventh trumpet. (1 Cor. 15:51-52)

Why, if many knew they would be raptured before the Tribulation and rise of the Antichrist, wouldn’t they hasten to get saved, just so they didn’t have to go through it? Would it really be that easy?

Granted, this is an area of Scripture that can’t be proven until it actually happens. But this writer is firmly committed and believes she will have to suffer through the years ahead…until the last trumpet sounds. As will all of mankind.

Regardless of what you may believe, wouldn’t it be wise for you to begin getting ready for what is to come?

Just in case, it would be a good idea to brush up on your survival skills and begin preparing for the worst. Stocking up on nonperishable food items, flashlights, batteries, solar radios, and everything else you might need to get through the worst time that mankind will ever have to endure until the Lord’s return.

Better safe than sorry would be a wise motto to hold onto until that day comes.

And believe me. That day is just around the corner.

“Behold, I shew you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” (1 Corinthians 15:51-52 KJV)
