The Rapture of the Church

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4: 16-18

 We who are in Christ, both those who have passed and those still living will be taken (or “caught up” which in Latin is “rapturo”, in Greek “harpazo” meaning to snatch or take away) from the earth to be with Jesus forever. This is the rapture of the church where the spirits of the dead will be united with their glorified, immortal bodies and we who are alive will also be swept up to Jesus in the same way.

This is the end of the church age, all those who abide in the word of God will be taken from the world. The salt and light are removed. The pain and suffering experienced to date will pale in comparison to what is coming. Also, know that right now there are no unfulfilled bible prophesies that need to occur before the rapture of the church. This can happen at any time . . . please be ready!
