    Hi!

    I'd like to read different opinions on when the rapture will occur. I always believed it would happen before the tribulation. What do you think?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    The dispensationalist view is the rapture will happen before the tribulation...

    "After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, "Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this." Immediately I was in the Spirit, and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne" Revelation 4:1-2 (NKJV)

    This is the Rapture, when all of the believers on earth will be caught up with Christ in the air, and we will receive our glorified bodies! The tribulation starts in chapter 5, when Jesus opens the scrolls in verse 6-7. He opens the seals in chapter 6, and the antichrist is the first seal.

    Since the Rapture is occuring in chapter 4, then John saw Jesus taking the scroll from the hand of God in verse 5, it is only logical to believe that the church will not be on earth for the tribluation period.

    I do welcome anyone to correct me if I'm not right, I'm not an expert on this or anything, so if anyone knows something I don't, please tell me! I'm here to learn just like everyone else!

    Thanks for the replies.
    Of course I believe we should be ready at any time to encounter our Savior in the air! But I don't think is wrong to ask when the rapture will occur.
    Anyway, like hogiad said, I'm just here to learn.
    hogiad, do you think the prophecies in Revelations
    will happen in chronological order as John saw the visions? I think so.

    Hello Z,
    Welcome to the Forum!
    I'm Pre- trib as you can tell by my posts.

    Now let me ask you a question. Who let you steal my eagle??
    Someone made a switch here. I used to have the one you have, but then they changed the forum, and now I'm stuck with this imitation one. I was looking for some lightning, but couldn't find none, so I took the eagle. I like yours better..>>rollinTHUNDER

    hogiad, I'm with you...I also love my job but heaven still seems more attractive. :)

    rolling thunder, thanks for the welcome. You know what? I can't view my eagle!! What does it look like? All I see is an icon for a picture.
    Can you tell me what do I do to see it? I am so computer illiterate! :(

    I believe in a pre-tribulation rapture also as it is the only model that seems to fit events in scripture best.

    God Bless
