I keep having this nagging suspicion that all my “preps” are simply God “keeping me busy” until He decides to “roll up the scroll”.

I would think in 456 when the Huns crossed into Northern Italy and were about to overrun all of Europe the Rapture index was much higher

Could somebody please explain this ‘rapture index’ to me? I have a vague notion of what it is, but some clarification would be appreciated.

There is no “rapture” in the BIble.

The second coming of Christ occurs at the END of times.

Don’t kid yourself into believing that YOU will be spared any coming tribulations, simply because you clicked your heels 3 times while saying “there’s no place like home”.....

Besides being saved, how exactly do you “get ready”? Call in sick from work? Put out lawn chairs?

Well, not exactly correct Ezekiel 13:17-23 was told to put into writing about those that teach 'souls' to fly.

“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Matthew 22:37-39

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen. (Matthew 28:18-20)

As it turns out, you are confusing the Scriptures with The Wizard of Oz story.

“Could somebody please explain this ‘rapture index’ to me?”

Sure. The “rapture index” is a web page maintained by a Christian. Let’s break it up into a couple of parts.

1) The Rapture

Whether you believe there is a rapture or not is a matter of your interpretation of the Bible. Some people believe there will be a rapture and others don’t. The pros and cons of this are too complicated to go into here; if you want to see the arguments on both sides (or just understand what the phrase “the rapture” means), just google “rapture bible”.

The author of the web-page believes in the rapture.

There is also among rapture believers about whether it occurs at the beginning, in the middle, or at the end of the 7 year great tribulation described in Revelation.

The author of the web-page believes it occurs at the beginning of the 7 year great tribulation.

2) Timing

The Bible states nobody knows the exact time “end times” (which will include the rapture), but it does say there are signs that will let us know it is imminent—very close. This is what the author of the rapture index web page is attempting to track—the signs given in the Bible that the end times are close.

The author seems to be absolutely opposed to date setting (setting a hard, definite date), so he has avoided that non-Biblical trap. The overall message of the web page seems to be: Jesus could come at any minute, so Christians need to be prepared for his coming.

How valid an exercise this is depends on your overall theology. From a pre-tribulation rapture theology standpoint the author’s end-times theology seems fairly solid.

Of course, if you don’t believe in a pre-tribulation rapture (of the rapture period), then you wouldn’t consider his theology valid, but that’s an entirely different debate (a debate I hope would be carried on somewhere else, and not this thread).

You do that anyway, not because the rapture has been penciled in for next week.
