THE RAPTURE WILL NOT BE A 'CALM AND QUIET' EVENT...........
According to Scripture the rapture will occur in conjunction with THE END of God's Gog-Magog War against Israel which is our sign from God that the rapture is near:
"And it will come to pass, AT THE SAME TIME, when Gog comes against the land of Israel, says the Lord God, that My fury will show in My face. For in My jealousy and in THE FIRE OF MY WRATH I have spoken : Surely IN THAT DAY there shall BE A GREAT EARTHQUAKE IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL so that the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep on the earth, AND ALL MEN WHO ARE ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH SHALL SHAKE AT MY PRESENCE."
"There will be SIGNS in the Sun, the Moon, and in the stars, and ON THE EARTH DISTRESS OF NATIONS WITH PERPLEXITY , THE SEA AND THE WAVES ROARING, MEN'S HEARTS FAILING THEM FROM FEAR, and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, FOR THE POWERS OF THE HEAVENS WILL BE SHAKEN. THEN, THEN, THEN they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud WITH POWER AND GREAT GLORY."
Both of the preceding Scriptures are describing the very SAME EVENT which occurs just before the rapture. Does that sound like a 'calm and quiet' event to you ? It doesn't to me ! There will be no mistaking that the rapture is AT THE DOOR WHEN we see the events of God's Gog-Magog War of His Great Tribulation upon Israel. It is 'OUR SIGN' from God that we are to watch for THAT THE RAPTURE IS NEXT.Come Lord Jesus !
