THE SECOND COMING
The signs are extremely convincing that the 2nd Coming of Jesus Christ is very near at hand. His purpose in returning as the super-powerful King of Kings is to bring real peace to the earth and to rule the whole earth according to God's will for the final 1000 years.
Unfortunately, we know that Jesus's return is preceded by a horrific 7-year period on the earth called the Tribulation. This period will see the emergence of the ultimate evil world dictator, a man known as the Antichrist (666). He will rise to power and reign over the whole world during the 7 years. During this time, God's Wrath will be poured out on the earth and billions of people will die. The Antichrist and his army will be defeated quickly by the super-powerful Jesus at his Coming at the Battle of Armageddon.
The Bible describes a specific instantaneous event known as the Rapture, where Jesus returns nearby to the earth and extracts from the earth all those people who are true Christian believers, to be with him forever. This event occurs sometime within or near the timeframe of the Tribulation and the 2nd Coming.
When generally does the Rapture occur:
(a) before the Tribulation (Pre-Trib)?
(b) during the Tribulation (Pre-Wrath)?
(c) at the 2nd Coming (Post-Trib)?
The answer to this question is important to Christians, since a Pre-Trib Rapture means that Christians will escape the earth prior to the horrific Tribulation and not have to endure the reign of the abominable Antichrist.
The purpose of this website is to discover if a Pre-Trib Rapture is the most probable answer to this question.

KEY BIBLE VERSES ABOUT THE RAPTURE
1Th 4:16-18 "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words."
1Cor 15:52-53 "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality."
