Skip to comments.The Three Horrific Demonic Woes of the Day of the Lord
Posted on 03/30/2011 2:17:40 PM PDT by The Ignorant Fisherman
As the day and hour of the world in which we are presently living comes ever closer to the time spoken of old called The Day of the Lord, it is not hard to see the horrific shadows of Divine truths from the Book of Revelation coming ever closer to fruition.
As one begins to read chapters 6-19 of the Book of Revelation, one would have to shudder in absolute fear at the horrific global catastrophes and exponential devastation that will take place, not just on this earth, but also unto its inhabitants. No wonder the Lord Jesus Christ electrified his disciples on the Mount of Olives when he stated: "For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved (delivered)" - Matt. 24:21-22a.
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)!
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 Gods 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).

Where is the evidence of the rapture? I really want to believe that we get the magic carpet out of here but I just don’t see the proof.
Not intended as anything but a sincere effort to understand where this came from.
There is no rapture of any kind written in the Word of God.
Sorry, its a lie. antichrist comes at the 6th trump and Christ Jesus returns at the 7th trump. So simple a child could explain it to you, I.F.
Thanks my friend for your sincere reply. Here is a brief Bible study on this topic.
Oh but it is!
1 Thessalonians 4:16 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:17 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.
"shall be caught up" (Greek harpagésómetha). In Latin, this word is rapere, from which "rapture" is derived. Free of any arcane or mysterious interpretation, it simply means "to be caught up," "snatched" or "seized."
If you had ever read the old Latin Vulgate you would have know that, in fact, it is part of scripture. I think, since sometime in the 4th century the Latin Vulgate was used exclusively.
The same old questions keep going around and around. Thessalonians 4 talks about the same event as Jesus talks about in Matthew 24 (Luke and Mark to) which is clearly at the end of the tribulation period.
Nothing in Thessalonians 4 gives any indication that a) this is a different event (then Matt: 24) or b) that this happens before the tribulation.
You don’t need the Latin Vulgate to see that.

Did I say when the rapture would occur? I was responding to an individual who claimed that rapture is not in the Bible. It clearly is when read in Latin then translated to English. The statement that the rapture is not in the Bible is often made by people who obviously dont know the scriptures very well. When the rapture occurs is a totally different discussion.
I’d just say, and I don’t know that this was your intention, but I don’t think it’s fair to equate not knowing a fact about the Latin Vulgate with not knowing the Scriptures well. The Vulgate is a historically important translation, to be sure, but it is still just one translation. Especially when we’re talking about a theological matter that Protestants seem to be more interested in that Catholics, I wouldn’t expect most people commenting on this to be too familiar with the Vulgate, even if they are well versed in the Scriptures in general.
