Hi Doves,
The scriptures appear to indicate the Rapture will occur at Pentecost [ 29th of Tammuz].
Consider the following:
The Lord said,
"But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me..." (Acts 1:8)
The Apostles received power to boldly declare to the world the resurrection of Jesus Christ!
This is why Peter said,
"This Jesus God has raised up, of which we are witnesses." (Acts 2:32)
Also after healing the lame man, Peter told the gathering crowd,
"...But you denied the Holy One and the Just, asked for a murderer to be granted to you, and killed the Prince of life, whom God raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses. (Acts 3:14,15)
Today, we can, with confidence, also witness to the world, of the resurrection of Jesus Christ!
This is because speaking in tongues are the utterances given by the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit can't give these utterances if He isn't continually being poured out be Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ wouldn't be able to pour out the Holy Spirit unless He had been exalted first, to the right hand of God.
Jesus Christ couldn't  be exalted to the right hand of the Father, unless He was first resurrected!
"Therefore being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you now see and hear." (Acts 2:33)
All over the World men and women are speaking in tongues!
We can see it, we can hear it.
Many have spoken in languages confirmed by those who speak those languages as their mother tongue!
If the Apostles received power to bear witness of the Lord's resurrection at Pentecost, could it be that the resurrection/translation of the saints itself will also occur at Pentecost?
We will no for sure in a few days!
It's important we understand that the power of the Holy Spirit is resurrection/translation power.
We receive this power whenever we pray in tongues, confess the Word, sing praises, and most importantly do good deeds for others.
These are the things we do to deposit resurrecting/translating power into our flesh and bones daily.
We are not passive bystanders, in this process!
For the Lord can only raise up into heaven those who have been drawing down, into their flesh and bones, His power in the first place!
Do remain blessed,
