GOD PROMISES TO SHOW US THE "SIGNS" TO WATCH FOR "BEFORE" THE RAPTURE........
The following Scriptures tell us that "BEFORE" the rapture, and the Day of the Lord, God will show us the "SIGNS" that the rapture IS NOW IMMINENT with the coming Day of the Lord:
"And I will show WONDERS in the heaven above, and SIGNS in the earth beneath. THE SUN shall be turned into darkness, and THE MOON into blood BEFORE that great and notable Day of the Lord COMES."
Notice God said, "BEFORE" the coming Day of the Lord. Therefore these "signs" are for us to watch for the immimently coming rapture.
The following Scripture speaks of THE FULFILLMENT of God's Word of Him showing us "SIGNS BEFORE" the rapture when it is integrated with Acts 2:19-20 :
Revelation 6:12-14 & 17
"And I beheld that when He had opened the Sixth Seal there was a GREAT EARTHQUAKE ( "SIGNS in the earth beneath" ), and THE SUN became black as sackcloth ( "THE SUN shall be turned into darkness" ) , and THE MOON became as blood ( "and THE MOON into blood" ) . And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth ....and HEAVEN DEPARTED AS A SCROLL when it is rolled together.......For the great Day of His Wrath IS COME, and who shall be able to stand?
Only the Body of Christ Church "shall be able to stand."
God has promised us that BEFORE the rapture , and the Day of the Lord comes which is the Great Tribulation judgment upon the whole world AFTER THE RAPTURE , He will show us "SIGNS" in the sky and on the earth telling us that our rapture is NOW IMMINENT. When the sky rolls up like a scroll that will be our "OPEN DOOR " of departure through which the resurrected / raptured Body of Christ Church will ascend to meet the LORD IN THE AIR according to :
"I know thy works, Behold ( see ), I HAVE SET BEFORE THEE AN OPEN DOOR, and no man can shut it for thou has a little strength, and has kept My Word, and has not denied My name. "
SO, THERE YOU HAVE IT:
The resurrection / rapture is an event of the SIXTH SEAL that occurs AFTER we see the "SIGNS" which God has promised to show us BEFORE the resurrection / rapture happens. The event of the resurrection / rapture is then followed by the SEVENTH SEAL events which is the Great Tribulation judgment upon the WHOLE WORLD after the resurrection / rapture occurs. The following is the chronological order of the SIXTH SEAL "SIGNS" that God has promised to show us BEFORE our resurrection / rapture :
(1) "a great earthquake"
(2) "the sun became black as sackcloth"
(3) "the moon became as blood"
(4) "the stars fell unto the earth"
(5) "the heaven departed as a scroll"
When we see the LAST SIGN which is "heaven depart as a scroll" we will be on our way to meet the Lord in the air!
According to Your Holy Word, come Lord Jesus !
