Greetings Brethren,


Peace be unto you. The Rapture is a question often clouded by those that have looked elsewhere for answers. Thus many come claiming other resources as makers of Biblical fact. Meanwhile the ungodly writers of Biblical fiction commit blasphemy at will.


Peace and Love, Carl Patton writing for the FreedomJournal 17 November 2005 in the year of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.






A study of the Biblical implications of “The Rapture” is one of the many questions found in scripture that cannot be answered with simple and short answers. Therefore our first concern is to define and note where in the Bible we find the word Rapture. So what is Paul saying?


Also what is the so-called secret Rapture proposed by J. N. Darby. There is also a need to determine what the Bible says about Armageddon, Tribulation and Apostasy. These are some of the most important points to explore as we seek to determine if all of these components are a part of the 2nd coming of Christ.


Meanwhile Bible scholars as they explore the Truth of The Rapture other important Biblical Truths are also seen. This is the great joy of reading and studying scripture. When other questions are raised and answered this is one of the greatest instances of growth in the Word. 


For example what does the Roman Empire/Catholic Church play in our quest to find what the scriptures reveal about The Rapture? What of the prophecy of Daniel and the impact of the Book of Revelation?
