If I could see a
physical picture representation of the Rapture in the Bible it might
have to be the parting of the Red Sea. I know many studies have been
written about Pentecost and the giving of the law. I think this is
also true. Remember Paul talked about a 3rd heaven. The first
departure from Egypt was via the Red Sea. Passover was the initial
leaving, but the Israelites were still within Pharoh's reach. The sky
has been likened to the sea. They are both physical bodies or barriers
to passge. Parting the sky, would lead to a translation or rapture
event. This would take us out of Egypt and Pharoh's reach for good.
The Bible does not record what day the parting of the Red Sea took
place. However, Jewish tradition is that the parting of the Red Sea
took place on the 7th day of Passover. This makes sense since this is
the day God rested and completed things. This would be the day that
the Israelites could truly be free from slavery.
Here is a link w/ more information:
This year, based on this calendar, it will occur on Monday, April
25th. However, if you base it on the full moon observance for Passover
(the 17th of April), the 7th day of Passover would be Saturday
(sabbath) or fall onto Easter Sunday.
One clue that it was the 7th day is that God said "The LORD will fight for you, you only need to be still."
