The Bible predicts many end time events. One of them is referred to as
the "Rapture". This is when Jesus Christ will return (not to the
earth) but to gather his saints to meet him in the air that they might
forever be with him. The word Rapture is not a Bible word but one that is used to describe what happens when Jesus returns for his saints.
Consider what it says in 1 Thessalonions 4:13-18
(13) But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. (14) For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. (15) For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. (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. (18) Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
This event is still in the future but will happen suddenly and without warning. We are told of two things that will happen first.
As one event has happened and the "birth pains" of the other are increasing, the Rapture can happen any time now. Following the Rapture, there will be several other events that will happen.1. Restoration of Israel as a nation (which happened in 1948)Isaiah 11:11-12; Ezekiel 36:242. Prophetic Signs That We Are Near The End (the beginning of birth pains)(Matthew 24 - wars, famine, earthquakes...)
- Seven-Year Period of Daniel (fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy)
- Great Tribulation (persecution for Christians plus various judgements)
- Day Of The Lord (judgements on the earth)
- Second Coming (Christ will return in great power with the armies of heaven)
- Millennium (1,000 year reign of peace on earth)
- Great White Throne Judgment (you do not want to be part of this!)
