    That prove the rapture or ellude to the rapture.

    If you just want Bible verses about the rature, Isuggest you find a book about eschatology. Otherwise, unless you're a preterist, you can't prove something that hasn't happened yet.

    Revelation 11 The two witnesses:

    And after three days and a half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
    And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies beheld them.

    Let me clarifying my previous post.

    From your question, I was under the impression that you wanted verses that proved that the rapture had already occured. I suggested an eschatology book, not to be evasive, but because there are so many verses regarding the rapture and you will need some direction from scholars on the topic regarding them.

    Revelation 11 refers to the 2 witnesses....not the rapture of all Christians.

    just for the purpose of my understanding. Who do you think the 2 witnesses are. (not trying to debate, just wondering what you thought)

    ephod, I've tried to make this work as well, say, for the Jews and Christians to be the two witnesses of the Living God.  However, how do you explain 11:3 where it says, they shall be clothed in sackcloth.  This is part of what narrows it down to two individuals.  I can't see the whole Church going out in their underwear and prophesying.  ;)  Of course, I guess if God asked me to do it, I would.  :)

    I agree with most of what Ephod is saying (great explanation BTW) but I believe that the two witnesses are those two churches (or groups of christians) in the beginning of Revelation, who were not reprimended by God, and given warning.

    Because in Rev 11 we are told that the two witnesses are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

    Rev 1 tells us the seven candlesticks are the seven churches but only TWO of the churches (Smyrna and Philadelphia) are given promise and reward.

    These two groups of christians, will be led by the holy spirit to speak at the given time, to the entire world; notice that John is given the little book in Chapter 10, and told he must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations and tongues and kings.

    While this is happening, they are clothed in sackcloth (which Ephod already stated as mourning), as they rally the world to repentance.

    But, they are overcome by the beast and killed. For three and a half days, (so similiar to the crucification of Jesus, isn't it) and not buried, while the world celebrates. But guess what, they are resurrected. Raptured. Given life. And the world SEES THIS. And fear spreads like (wildfire) through every man because they KNOW, that the time of the Lord is come.

    1 Corinthians 15:51 - We will not all die, but we will all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

    1 Thessalonians 4:17 - For this we declare to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will by no means precede those who have died. For the Lord himself, with a cry of command, with the archangel¬ís call and with the sound of God¬ís trumpet, will descend from heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up in the clouds together with them to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will be with the Lord forever.

    These verses speak to what Christians traditionally called the "rapture".
