16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a rousing cry, with a call from one of the ruling angels, and with God’s shofar; those who died united with the Messiah will be the first to rise; 17 then we who are left still alive will be caught up with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and thus we will always be with the Lord.
Many people simply do not believe in the Rapture as it is taught by many, they assume that the only time we will ascend to be with Christ is on our death and resurrection, and yet the Bible clearly states that some that are alive will rise to meet with Jesus on His return. I agree that this meaning of rapture is relativity new, however whatever you call it, if the Bible says that some of those who go to join Christ in the air are still alive, and you believe in the word of the Bible, you must accept that not all will be dead and need to be resurrected on His return.

I am a firm believer in the Last Days, and I truly believe that they are upon us. The signs are there for us to see and all you have to do is read the Bible and understand. While Jesus said
that no one except the Father, would know the exact time, He also said that there would be signs to watch for. Those signs are here! All you have to see is the major earthquakes, the diverse wars that are increasing, the abusive nature of man that is apparent in the callous disregard of ordinary people to the neighbors plights or those dying on the street.
He gave us these signs in order that we would be able to turn our lives around and choose God, because if you do not choose God, you will not be chosen. We have free will, and even if you think that you are living a life that is Godly and wise, if you haven’t given yourself to Him, you have chosen wrongly. I pray that those reading this will take the time to investigate and make the right choice. In Jesus Holy name I so pray. Thank you Lord, Amen.
The Events That Will Lead Up To The Anti-Christ‘s 666 Global State
When the Rapture of the Church finally takes place – in which Almighty God the Son calls out His body (saints and ambassadors) – it (The Rapture) will be a wondrous sign unto the apostate western world more so than a sign unto the whole world. For all had better be prepared, for Almighty God’s “Day of Wrath” is now at hand (2 Thess. 2:3-12)!
“All these are the beginning of sorrows (birth pangs) Matt. 24:8″.
The official commencement of this horrific seven year period will be the breaking of the 1st seal (i.e., the “Confirming of the Covenant” – Dan. 9:27) by Almighty God’s Lamb (i.e., The Lord Jesus Christ) in Heaven (Rev. 6:1). It is at this precise moment that the man of lawlessness (i.e., the anti-Christ) will be revealed unto the entire world (2 Thess. 2: 3-12; Rev. 6:2). This revealing of the Anti-Christ and the commencement of this seven year tribulation period will begin when this man (i.e., the Anti-Christ) adds his position of great power and authority to a covenant with Israel on the behalf of Israel’s defeated enemies (Ezek. 38:8,11-12, Dan. 9: 27). Israel will sign this covenant from a position of strength, not weakness (Ezek 38: 8). Israel will then have rest and dwell in their land in safety because they have eradicated their border enemies (Ezek. 38:8,11-12, Rev. 11:3-7). This position of power does not mean that Israel’s heart is right with Almighty God, for it will not be (Rev. 11:8). Israel at this time will also have the super natural protection of Almighty God’s two witnesses who possess Almighty God’s Divine authority and are extremely more powerful and than the anti – Christ and his global confederacies (Rev. 11:3-6).
“This revealing of the Anti-Christ and the commencement of this seven year tribulation period will begin when this man (i.e., the Anti-Christ) adds his position of great power and authority to a covenant with Israel on the behalf of Israel’s defeated enemies”
These two lamp stands of Almighty God (Moses and Elijah) will preach salvation in Jesus Messiah, re- institute the temple, its sacrifices and its priesthood. They will preach repentance and testify to ALL that the establishment of the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. These two will then prepare the remnant of believing Jews and a chosen 144,000 Jewish men – from the 12 tribes of Israel – (Matt. 24:14, Rev. 7:4-8, 11:13) for their global ministry unto All of the nations of the earth and their Messiah’s glorious and imminent return and Kingdom. It will be at this time -the first 3 1/2 years of the tribulation period – that the WORLD will seek every and any opportunity to root out and destroy these two Divinely appointed vessels of Almighty God… all to no avail (Mal. 4:4-6, Rev. 7,14:1-4,11:3-8).
