The (7) Rapture Has Never Been This Close Before
“For if (7) we believe that Jesus died and rose (7) again, even so them also which sleep (7) in Jesus will God bring with Him. (6) For this we say unto you (7) by the word of the Lord, that (7) we which are alive and remain unto (7) the coming of the Lord shall not (7) prevent (or precede) them which are asleep. For the Lord (7) Himself shall descend from heaven with a (7) shout, with the voice of the archangel, (7) and with the trump of God: and (7) the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which (7) are alive and remain shall be caught (7) up together with them in the clouds, (7) to meet the Lord in the air: and so (7) shall we ever be with the Lord.” (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17)
“For God hath not (7) appointed us to wrath, but to obtain (7) salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who (7) died for us, that, whether we wake (7) or sleep, we should live together with (7) Him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify (7) one another, even as also ye do.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9-11)
(777777) 6×7. Six (‘6’) is God’s Divine Number denoting ‘Man or Man’kind.’ In this case, God is referring the salvation of man’kind. Seven (‘7’) is God’s Divine Number denoting His ‘Perfect Completion to His Plan or Purpose of a Thing.’ In this case, God is referring to His Plan for Man’kind’s Eternal Salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ. Seven (‘7’) is also God’s Divine Number denoting His ‘TRUTH OR TRUTHFULNESS OF A MATTER.’
The message (7) is as clear as it can possibly (7) be. As clear as this message is, (7) some have trouble understanding it, even today. Paul says that (7) Lord will appear in the air, the (7) dead in Christ will rise, those still (7) living will rise right after, and we (7) will then spend eternity with the Lord. Paul says the (7) purpose of this revelation was to comfort (7) believers facing hard times. What completes the (7) theme is Paul’s exhortation at the end. (77777 + 77777) 10×7.
(7) “Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” (1 Thessalonians 4:18)
49 And as we (7) have borne the image of the earthy, we shall (7) also bear the image of the heavenly. (77)
50 Now this I say, brethren, that (7) flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom (7) of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. (77)
51 Behold, I shew (7) you a mystery; We shall not all (7) sleep, but we shall all be changed, (77)
52 In a (7) moment, in the twinkling of an eye, (7) at the last trump: for the trumpet (7) shall sound, and the dead shall be (7) raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (7777)
53 (7) For this corruptible must put on incorruption, (7) and this mortal must put on immortality. (77)
54 So when (7) this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and (7) this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be (7) brought to pass the saying that is (7) written, Death is swallowed up in victory. (7777)
John 14:2 (7) In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were (7) not so, I would have told you. I (7) go to prepare a place for you. (777)
John 14:3 And if I go and (7) prepare a place for you, I will (7) come again, and receive you unto myself; that where (7) I am, there ye may be also (777)
Revelation 12 And (7) there appeared a great wonder in heaven; (7) a woman clothed with the sun, and (7) the moon under her feet, and upon (7) her head a crown of twelve stars: (7777)
2 (7) And she being with child cried, travailing (7) in birth, and pained to be delivered. (77)
4 And his tail drew the (7) third part of the stars of heaven, (7) and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon (7) stood before the woman which was ready (7) to be delivered, for to devour her (7) child as soon as it was born. (77777)
5 And she (7) brought forth a man child, who was (7) to rule all nations with a rod (7) of iron: and her child was caught (7) up unto God, and to his throne. (7777)
Romans 5:9 Much more then, (7) being now justified by his blood, we (7) shall be saved from wrath through him. (77)
Revelation 3:10 Because thou (7) hast kept the word of my patience, I also will (7) keep thee from the hour of temptation, (7) which shall come upon all the world, to (7) try them that dwell upon the earth. (7777)
Prov. 25:2 (7) It is the glory of God to (7) conceal a matter, but the glory of (7) kings is to search out a matter. (777)

6 And (7) I beheld, and, lo, in the midst (7) of the throne and of the four (7) beasts, and in the midst of the (7) elders, stood a Lamb as it had (7) been slain, having seven horns and seven (7), eyes which are the seven Spirits of (7) God sent forth into all the earth. (7777777) 7×7
7 And he came and took (7) the book out of the right hand (7) of him that sat upon the throne. (77)
8 And when he (7) had taken the book, the four beasts (7) and four and twenty elders fell down (7) before the Lamb, having every one of (7) them harps, and golden vials full of (7) odours, which are the prayers of saints. (77777)
9 (7) And they sung a new song, saying, (7) Thou art worthy to take the book, and (7) to open the seals thereof: for thou (7) wast slain, and hast redeemed us to (7) God by thy blood out of every (7) kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; (777777), 6×7
Note; all the redeemed (past tense) men that make up the Raptured Church, from the ‘Age of Grace.’ These are NOT the ‘Tribulation Saints’ who are martyred, beheaded for their faith by the Beast / Antichrist, during the Great Tribulation on Earth.

As high watch times come and go, weary saints sometimes ask, “How much longer, Lord? Why not now?” The convergence of signs gets our hopes up; this must surely be the season (and it surely is). But still we wait with the assurance that at some point, the Lord will reward our patience (2 Timothy 4:8). It feels like the Tribulation is so close we can almost reach out and touch it. Some speculate that it has already begun because they see so many of the conditions described in Revelation 6:1-8. These, however, are mere precursors to a time that will be far, far worse than anything we currently see. They are the Lord’s way of warning people of what lies ahead.
At times like these, the words of Scripture bring the most comfort to me and I suspect they do the same for you. We endure because the words on the pages of our Bibles ring out with the good news that Jesus will take us home to glory before the start of the Tribulation. Let me explain why I’m so confident of this hope.
The Rapture Is A Biblical Event
The Rapture is biblical event. The late Dr. Ed Hindson, former professor at Liberty University, Bible scholar, and author put it this way: If you disagree on the timing of the rapture, please don’t tell people, ‘There’s never going to be a rapture.’ No, there must be a rapture or the Bible is not true. There must be a time when the archangel shouts, when the trumpet sounds, and the dead in Christ are raised and the living are caught up (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). We may differ on the timing of the rapture but not the fact of the rapture.
We also find references to this same event in John 14:2-3, 1 Corinthians 15:50-55, Philippians 3:20-21, Romans 8:23-25, Titus 2:11-14, John 3:2-3, and Colossians 3:4. Putting these passage together, we have a chain of events that describe Jesus’ appearing during which time He raises the “dead in Christ,” catches believers that are alive to meet Him in the air, and gives all His saints immortal resurrection bodies. If the words of Scripture mean what the author intended, there must be a time when Jesus comes for His Church as described by both Jesus and the apostles. However, this alone doesn’t tell us the timing of the Rapture in respect to the Tribulation. For that, we must dig deeper.
The Rapture Is A Unique Event
When we compare Bible passages that describe the Rapture with those of the Second Coming, we recognize that they cannot be the same event. Our “blessed hope” is a unique event that must happen at a time before Jesus’ return to earth at the end of the Tribulation. The many differences tell us they must be separate events. I list a few of those below. At Jesus’ appearing, He raises the “dead in Christ” first (1 Thessalonians 4:16). When Jesus returns, the resurrection of the Tribulation saints occurs after several other events (Revelation 19:17-20:4); it likely happens several days later. The timing of the resurrection alone makes the Rapture unique.
The participants in the resurrection are also different. At the Second Coming, Jesus only raises a specific group of believers, but with the Rapture He raises all the “dead in Christ” before catching us up in the air with glorified bodies. In addition, the two events must be separated by a period of time in order for believers to enter the Millennium in their natural bodies. A sizeable gap in time must exist after the Rapture for those left behind to come to faith in Jesus and survive until He returns.
In Philippians 3:20–21, Paul wrote: “For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.” The Greek word for “await” in verse 20 points to an “intense anticipation” or an “excited expectation” of a future event. Luke used the same Greek word for “await” in Acts 17:16 to describe Paul’s restless “waiting” in Athens for Silas and Timothy to rejoin him. After the apostle’s distressing experiences in Philippi, Thessalonica, and Berea, we know he intently watched and longed for a reunion with his fellow laborers. This is the same passionate yearning of the soul with which the apostle characterizes the waiting of the Philippians for the Lord’s appearing. Such an eager anticipation of the Rapture only makes sense if it can happen at any moment.
Why did the Thessalonian saints grieve for members of their church that had died (1 Thessalonians 4:13)? If it had been a matter of doubting their resurrection with immortal bodies, the response of Paul would have been similar to that in 1 Corinthians 15 where he addressed that topic. Instead, the apostle emphasized the prominence of the “dead in Christ” in the Rapture. The Thessalonians grieved because they believed their loved ones would miss out on Jesus’ appearing. Not only was there a sense of imminency regarding meeting Jesus in the air, but they believed it could happen during their lifetime and felt despondent for those they thought would miss it.
In 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3, Paul wrote that the “sudden destruction” of the “day of the Lord” would come as a surprise to people; it will arrive when many are saying “There is peace and security.”
The “Day of the Lord” is an Old Testament term for a time when God pours out His wrath on the entire world. About 45 years after the apostle wrote to the Thessalonians, the Apostle John wrote the book of Revelation in which he described the judgments of this time in greater detail (see chapters 6-18). Since we know that this day will begin as a surprise, when in the series of seal, trumpet, and bowl judgments is that most likely to happen? For it to come without any warning, it must start before the seals bring death to nearly two billion people. And that’s exactly what the Lord promises us through the words of the Apostle Paul in 1 Thessalonians 5:9-10: “For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.” The “wrath” is that of the “Day of the Lord,” which includes the entire Tribulation. The Rapture must happen before the start of the Tribulation.
Jesus made this remarkable promise to the church at Philadelphia:
Revelation 3:10 KJV – (6) “Because thou hast kept the word (7) of my patience, I also will keep (7) thee from the hour of temptation, which (7) shall come upon all the world, to (7) try them that dwell upon the earth.” (7777)
Let’s explore Jesus’ promise to see how it relates to our hope of placing the Rapture before the start of the Tribulation. What is the “hour of trial?” We first see that it impacts the “whole world,” which identifies it as something far different than what would impact the local church at Philadelphia. “The period of distress that John describes in Revelation 6–18 fits especially well with the coming “hour of trial” that Jesus refers to in Revelation 3:10.”
Next, we notice that this “hour of trial” is specifically for “those who dwell on the earth.” Looking at how John uses this expression later in Revelation, we see that the description either refers to either people impacted by the Tribulation or to those refusing to repent of their sins during that time (Rev. 6:10; 8:13; 11:10; 13:8–12, 14; 14:6; 17:8). Jesus confirms His promise to keep us out of this time with His words in Revelation 3:11a, “I am coming soon.” (The Greek word for “soon” more accurately denotes an event that takes place “quickly” such as the Rapture.)
The Church’s Absence
Evidence of the Church’s absence during the Tribulation is seen in the fact that John never mentions it during his eyewitness account of the judgments that hit the earth (Revelation, chapters 6-18). Why would a book addressed specifically to seven churches not mention them in its description of the Lord’s wrath on the earth if they were meant to endure it? Perhaps even more significant is the presence of other witnesses during this time. If the Church is still present on the earth with the task of proclaiming the Gospel, why does God place two witnesses in Jerusalem (Revelation 11:1–13)?
In Revelation 14:6–7, John writes about an angel who will share the good news of salvation during the time of the Tribulation. If the Church was still present on the earth, why is this necessary?The 144,000 Jews whom God will “seal” or protect as the world experiences God’s wrath (Revelation 7:1–8) will act as evangelists. Besides the fact that this is now the task of the church, this setting apart would contradict what we read about it in the New Testament.
In Colossians 3:11, Paul wrote about the Body of Christ: “Where (7) there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision (7) nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: (7) but Christ is all, and in all.” (777)
In the current church age, it’s impossible to have a group of Jewish men that are distinct from the Church. This can only happen after Jesus removes us from the earth.
We must base our belief in the Rapture on the words of Scripture; this is the apostolic faith that we have in our hands, our Bibles. I refer to church history below only to point out a couple errors that the scoffers repeatedly make in attacking the Rapture. First, please know that Bible teachers during the past two centuries didn’t create a new doctrine, but simply applied the word “Rapture” to an event thoroughly described on the pages of the New Testament. In the words of Ed Hindson, “. . .there must be a rapture or the Bible is not true. There must be a time when the archangel shouts, when the trumpet sounds, and the dead in Christ are raised and the living are caught up (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).”
Second, contrary to what the scoffers claim, many writers in the early centuries of the church believed that Jesus would come for His saints before a time of extended tribulation on the earth. In AD 180, esteemed early church theologian, Irenaeus wrote the following in Against Heresies, Book 5, Chapter 29: And therefore, when in the end the Church shall be suddenly caught up from this, it is said, “There shall be Tribulation such as has not been since the beginning, neither shall be.”
Irenaeus used the same Greek word for “caught up,” harpazo, that Paul used in 1 Thessalonians 4:17 for the Lord catching up living believers to meet Him in the air. Irenaeus placed this event ahead of the time of “tribulation” that Jesus referred to in Matthew 24:21. In my book, The Triumph of the Redeemed-An eternal Perspective that Calms Our Fears in Perilous Times. I cite several other references from early church history demonstrating a belief in what we today refer to as the Rapture.
The biblical basis for the pre-Tribulation Rapture is rock-solid because it’s based on the words of the New Testament. We know Jesus is coming for us before the start of the seven-year Tribulation. It’s difficult to wait amid personal pain, the wickedness all around us, and our awareness that a much, much better day awaits us once the trumpet sounds. Jesus could come for us today, but it’s also true we might need to wait while the world grows darker and more foreboding for us.
Two times, Paul refers to our groaning ahead of the receipt of our immortal bodies (Romans 8:23-25; 2 Corinthians 5:4-5). It’s rather doubtful that the apostle was referring to complaining. The Greek word depicts a sighing because of grief and can even denote a quick inward prayer in the midst of discomfort. Jesus is coming for us soon and it can happen at any moment. In the meantime, we look up knowing that the completion of our redemption is ever so close. In the meantime, perhaps a little sanctified groaning is appropriate as we compare our current circumstances to the overwhelming joy that awaits us when Jesus appears.
The good news is that we have a sure hope of immortal bodies and meeting our Savior in the air and it will happen suddenly, perhaps in the near future.

The Book (7) of Daniel and The Book of Revelation. ‘Bookends’ (7) Regarding Prophecy of the ‘End-Times’, Tribulation. Revelation 10:7 But in the (7) days of the voice of the seventh (7) angel, when he shall begin to sound, (7) the mystery of God should be finished, as he (7) hath declared to his servants the prophets. ‘10’ is the biblical number for ‘completeness on earth’. ‘7’ is the biblical number for (7) divine completeness to God’s plan or purpose.
Ten ‘10’ Denotes God’s divine ‘COMPLETENESS’ as to things on EARTH. In Revelation 10, he is opening up the ancient scrolls and ‘little book’ of prophecy that Daniel was told to ‘SEAL UP’ and not write of what was spoken. He was prophetically being told additional things that would transpire or occur ‘in the end of days’ and during the 7 year tribulation.
Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the ‘time of the end’: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the ‘time of the end’.
‘Time of the End’:
Revelation ‘10’ And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
2 And he had in his hand a ‘little book open’: (NWN; Daniels ‘little book’ is now being opened by God’s Great Angel of Prophecy) and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven ‘7’ thunders uttered their voices.
(NWN; I ‘discern’ that these are seven ‘7’ other great prophecy angels who are ‘confirming’ that NOW IS THE TIME to OPEN DANIEL’S ‘END TIME’ Book of Future Prophecy.’)
4 And when the seven ‘7’ thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven ‘7’ thunders uttered, and write them not.
5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, ‘7’ that there should be time no longer:
(NWN; The Great Prophecy Angel is proclaiming the ‘LAST DAYS or END TIMES’ have come, in no uncertain terms, and that NOW IS THE TIME to reveal prophecy related TO the Last Days or End Times and Tribulation.)
7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh ‘7’ angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
(NWN; Seven ‘7’ denotes God’s divine completion to his plan or purpose for this ‘7th’ prophecy angel to commence and complete prophecy related to the Last Days and End Times. Think of the Great Prophecy Angel as a ‘General’ and the ‘7th’ prophecy angel as a Major or Colonel or someone of rank who has been given authority to physically ‘begin something or start something.’)
8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open (NWN; notice that the ‘little book’ is OPEN) in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.
(NWN; the prophecy angel(s) are HANDING the little book to physically alive men on the earth. In essence, they are handing or ‘transferring’ the ‘little book of prophecy’ to physical men ALIVE on the EARTH during the ‘End Times’ or ‘Last Days.’ God conveys prophecy to Angels who in turn are ‘messengers’ of God’s prophecy to mortal men alive. Angels, throughout the past 6,000 years have been ‘messengers’ for God to mankind.)
9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
(NWN; this is a ‘discernment’ on my part. ‘Take it and eat it’ is a spiritual ‘consumption’ of understanding the End Times and God’s related prophecies to go along with ‘signs of the times.’ It takes ‘7’ knowledge, wisdom, obedience, humility, persistence, prayer and the Holy Spirit’ to work prophecy in man’kind. This is a great and wonderful thing, just like a ‘7’ course meal. However, once the prophecies are apparent ‘consumed and understood’ they will be prone to make one sick to the stomach because of what they foretell. Just like eating a ’7’ course meal will likely make you feel like you could explode. God’s UNFILTERD WRATH poured on evil man’kind who refuse Him, and refuse His Son Jesus Christ and His eternal offer of salvation. Seeing prophecy happen and unfold is a wonderful and miraculous thing. Understanding the implications of seeing prophecy unfold, leaves one’s stomach bitter and sour because of the ‘gastrointestinal storm’ that is coming. Pass-the-antacid-pills, please.)
10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
(NWN; the prophecy angel was prophesying what would happen to anyone who attempted to reveal what was in the ‘little book.’ This verse ‘confirms’ that what was prophesied, did in fact occur and was experienced by those given the task of being Watchmen. This also ‘suggests’ that some men are ‘willingly’ allowing themselves to be Watchmen because they consciously love prophecy (God’s Word) and are completely open and receptive to it.)
11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
(NWN; since this is verse ‘11’ it suggests a WARNING(S). The purpose of prophecy is to inform, proclaim and WARN. It suggests that the Watchmen who proclaim the Word of God, will have their ‘7’ words, letters, videos, blogs, sermons, articles and books proclaim God’s WILL to those during the End Times / Last Days and Tribulation period. God has ALWAYS used Holy Angels and physical men (Moses, Elijah, Daniel, Enoch, and others) to speak on behalf of God. He will do this also through the Tribulation via; 1. Prophecy revealed to mankind via his ‘little book’ to Watchmen, 2. The ‘two witnesses’, ‘lampstands’ or candles who proclaims God’s light to the world for the first 3.5 years of the tribulation, 3. The various Angel warnings given to men to NOT TAKE THE MARK of the BEAST and lastly, 4. The 144,000 Jewish Evangelists who have the ‘seal of God’ in their foreheads (and NOT the mark of the Beast) who proclaim Jesus Christ’s offer of Salvation ONE LAST TIME, before the 7 year tribulation ends.)
But how can (7) they call on him (Jesus Christ) to save (7) them unless they believe in Him (Jesus Christ)? (7) And how can they believe in Him (7) (Jesus Christ) if they have never heard about (7) Him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they hear (7) about Him (Jesus Christ) unless someone tells them?” Romans 10:14 (777777)

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:
The ABCs (7) of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)
A. (7) Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask (7) God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.
. . . “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).
. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).

(7) Put your trust in Him as your (7) only hope of salvation. Become a son (7) or daughter of God by receiving Christ. (7777777) 7×7
. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
C. Call upon His name, Confess (7) with your heart and with your lips (7) that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.
. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).
. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).
. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).
. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).
. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).
. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).
