The Rapture And The Feast of Trumpets

September 20, 2017


The Rapture will come like a thief in the night.  So why are we told that it won’t overtake the church like a thief?

1Th 5:2  For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night.

1Th 5:3  While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape.

1Th 5:4  But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief;

Because Jesus told us the signs that will proceed the Rapture of the Church (Matthew 24).  And Paul clarifies it in II Thessalonians 2:1-4.  And the signs line up with the first six seals of Revelation chapter 6.
