    I never heard that one before, yea what's the reasoning behind it.

    I thought it was going to be last weekend so I nearly took a stroke. I was going in to every store like I'd never get another chance. I loaded up on fishing poles, potatoes and powdered milk. Potatoes are easy to grow and store for 6 months in the basement. I can feed the cats on sunfish from the lake. My girls are obligate carnivores, they'll eat everything, there's good calcium in them bones.

    I think that the deadline will be the first couple of days in June, between now and then. If the censer is cast down we may still have a small amount of time to buy supplies, maybe a few days, so don't delay.

    I don't think so....I personally dont believe the rapture is gonna catch his people by surprise...but an announcement will be made prior to the rapture ...God always announce his comings to his people in some manner

    The Lord has not revealed the dating .... so no one can know

    When He does intervene to call His ecclesia home there will be no warning or signs

    Make certain that you are ready .... it could happen before this day is over

    [Matthew 25:1-13]

    Some will be [Revelation 3:10]

    Many will not be [Revelation 3:9-15]

    I find it hard to believe Jesus is gonna rapture the church with no warning...it is not like God to not announce the event....

    Example....Moses when he was leading the people to mt Sinai ....the people were told God would reveal himself to them....they were given special instructions in preparation for the meeting between God and man...for 3 days they must wash Thierry clothes and not have intercourse. ..the must not touch the mountain....nor gaze on the Lord....then the Lord appeared on the mountain and spoke 10 words. ....just as God prepared the people then ...he will prepare us to meet him...in the future...

    It says in the last days God will pour out his spirit ...it is his spirit that will prepare us ...imo

    "I find it hard to believe Jesus is gonna rapture the church with no warning"


    Why would He have to warn you?

    Are you not ready?

    A thief gives no warning .... and when He leaves make certain that you are going to be with Him .... He has already given you the promise

    .... He should not have to warn you

    Last minute prep is not a good idea [Matthew 25:1-13]

    well what if I get behind a semi...and I disappear...the truck then heads for a group of nuns....:)....I don't believe it's gonna go down that way homie....

    ...How do you make yourself ready for such an event such as the rapture?..that's my point ......do you know something I don't?...if so....give me the preparation instructions ...

    Jesus does not come 'like a thief' when the rapture happens ....a thief comes to kill steal and destroy...Jesus comes as a thief during his second coming....but not during the rapture....two different events my friend....two different harvest days ....


    Yes....but the instructions and preparations not so much..

    Why not?...do you being Lord over your house prepare your household before a tornado comes if you hear on the news that a tornado warning has been issued?.....Texas weather analogy:)

    EXACTLY..

    Matt 25 is referring to the second coming....the rapture is before the second coming...
