Scriptural Proof for Rapture Timing

Where is the Promise of HIS COMING?  for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as [they were] from the beginning of the creation. 2 Peter 3:4

Jesus was asked: What will be the SIGN OF YOUR COMING, AND of THE END OF THE WORLD? Mat 24:3

 


SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS

GREAT TRIBULATION & PERSECUTION

Rev 13:7 It was given to the Anti-Christ] to MAKE WAR WITH THE SAINTS and to OVERCOME THEM: and power was given him over ALL kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

Rev 12:11 And they Overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb, and by the Word of their Testimony; and they LOVED NOT THEIR LIVES TO THE DEATH.

JESUS & APOSTLES SUFFERED FIRST

John 15:20 [Jesus said] Remember the word that I said to you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will ALSO PERSECUTE YOU; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. 21 But all these things will they do to you for My Name’s Sake, because they know not him that sent me.

2Thes 1:4 We ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your Patience and Faith in all your Persecutions and Tribulations that you ENDURE:

2Thes 1:5 A Manifest TOKEN of the righteous Judgment of God, that YOU may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which YOU ALSO SUFFER

Heb 2:18 For in that Christ HIMSELF has suffered being tempted, he is able to succor [help/ASSIST] them that are tempted.

Rom 8:36 As it is written, For your sake we are Killed all the day long; we are accounted as Sheep for the Slaughter.

Rom 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Luke 12:4 And I say to you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.

Luke 12:5 But I will forewarn you whom you will fear: Fear him, which after he has killed has power to cast into hell; yea, I say to you, Fear him.

ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION

Mat 24:15 When you therefore see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso reads, let him understand:)

Mat 24:16 Then let them which are in Judaea FLEE into the mountains:

Isa 26:20 Come, my people, enter into your chambers, and shut your doors about thee: HIDE YOURSELF AS IT WERE FOR A LITTLE MOMENT, UNTIL THE INDIGNATION BE OVERPAST.

Isa 26:21 For, Behold, The LORD Comes OUT OF HIS PLACE TO PUNISH THE INHABITANTS OF THE EARTH for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

SUN & MOON GO DARK RIGHT AFTER TRIBULATION

Mat 24:29 IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION Of Those Days  [the anti-Christ’s reign] Will The Sun Be Darkened, And The Moon Will Not Give Her Light, And The Stars Will Fall From Heaven, And The Powers Of The Heavens Will Be Shaken:

 Act 2:20The SUN SHALL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS, and the Moon into Blood, BEFORE THAT GREAT AND NOTABLE DAY OF THE LORD COME:

Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever shall CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED.

2Pet 3:10 THE DAY OF THE LORD will Come as a THIEF IN THE NIGHT; in the which the HEAVENS WILL PASS AWAY with a GREAT NOISE, and the Elements Will Melt with Fervent Heat, the Earth also and the WORKS that are THEREIN will be BURNED UP.

2Th 1:5 [Which is] a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer:

2Th 1:6 Seeing [it is] a righteous thing with God to Recompense Tribulation to them that trouble you;

2Th 1:7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus will be REVEALED FROM HEAVEN with his Mighty Angels,

2Th 1:8 In FLAMING FIRE taking vengeance on THEM that know NOT God, and that obey NOT the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

 

END OF THE WORLD HARVEST:

“The Gathering” of Wheat & Tares

Mat 13:30 Let BOTH GROW TOGETHER UNTIL THE HARVEST:
and in the TIME of HARVEST I will say to the Reapers,
GATHER together FIRST the TARES, and Bind them in Bundles to BURN them:
but GATHER the WHEAT into MY BARN.

Mat 13:39… THE HARVEST IS THE END OF THE WORLD; and
the REAPERS ARE THE ANGELS.

Mat 13:40 As the TARES are GATHERED and BURNED in the fire;
SO IT WILL BE in the END OF THIS WORLD

Mat 13:49 the ANGELS Will Come Forth, and
SEVER THE WICKED
from AMONG the JUST

Mat 3:12…[God} will thoroughly PURGE HIS FLOOR, and
GATHER HIS WHEAT into the BARN; BUT he will BURN UP the CHAFF with Unquenchable FIRE.

Luke 17:41 Two women will be grinding at the mill; the one will be taken and the other left.,

Luke 17:42 Watch therefore: for you know not what hour your Lord doth come

Isa 26:21 For, Behold, The LORD Comes OUT OF HIS PLACE to PUNISH THE INHABITANTS OF THE EARTH for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

2Tim 4:1 … the Lord Jesus Christ, who JUDGE THE LIVING AND THE DEAD AT HIS APPEARING and his KINGDOM (Kingdom delivered up at the 7th Trumpet- see below)

2Thes 2:8 And THEN will that WICKED be revealed, whom the Lord will CONSUME with the spirit of his mouth, and will DESTROY with the BRIGHTNESS of HIS COMING:

Psalm 50:3 Our God will COME, and Will NOT KEEP SILENCE: a FIRE WILL DEVOUR BEFORE HIM, and it will be very tempestuous round about him.

Psalm 50:4 He will Call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may JUDGE HIS PEOPLE.

Psalm 50:5 GATHER MY SAINTS TOGETHER TO ME; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.

 

SALVATION & DESTRUCTION COMES SAME DAY

Luke 17:26 As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be also IN THE DAYS OF THE SON OF MAN. 27 … THE DAY that Noah Entered into the ark, and THE FLOOD CAME, AND DESTROYED THEM ALL.

Luke 17:30 Even thus will it be IN THE DAY when the Son of man is REVEALED.


Luke 17:29 the SAME DAY that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and DESTROYED THEM ALL.

Mat 24:35 HEAVEN AND EARTH WILL PASS AWAY, but my words shall not pass away.

36 But of THAT DAY AND HOUR KNOWS NO MAN, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

37 as the days of Noah [were], so shall also the COMING OF THE SON OF MAN BE.

39 They knew not UNTIL THE FLOOD CAME, and took them all away; so shall also the COMING OF THE SON OF MAN BE.

 

DEAD RAISED ON THE LAST DAY

John 6:39 And this is the Father’s will which has sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but SHOULD RAISE IT UP AGAIN AT THE LAST DAY.

John 6:40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which SEES the Son, and believes on him, may have everlasting life: and I WILL RAISE HIM UP AT THE LAST DAY.

John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up AT THE LAST DAY.

John 6:54 Whosoever eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, has eternal life; and I will raise him up AT THE LAST DAY.

JESUS & ANGELS REAP HARVEST

Luke 17:24 For as the LIGHTNING, that lightens out of the one [part] under heaven, shines unto the other [part] under heaven; so will also the SON OF MAN BE IN HIS DAY.

Rev 14:14 Behold a WHITE CLOUD, and UPON the CLOUD [one] sat like to the SON OF MAN, and in his hand a SHARP SICKLE.

Rev 14:15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to HIM that SAT ON THE CLOUD, Thrust in your sickle, and reap: for the time is come for you to REAP; for the HARVEST of the EARTH is ripe.

Rev 14:16 And HE THAT SAT ON THE CLOUD THRUST IN HIS SICKLE ON THE EARTH; and the EARTH was REAPED.


DEAD RAISED AT LAST TRUMPET

Mat 24:31 And he will SEND HIS ANGELS WITH A GREAT SOUND OF A TRUMPET, AND THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER HIS ELECT from the four winds, from One End of Heaven to the Other.

Eph 1:10 That in the dispensation of the Fullness of Times He Might GATHER TOGETHER IN ONE ALL THINGS IN CHRIST, BOTH WHICH ARE IN HEAVEN, AND WHICH ARE ON EARTH; [even] in him:

Rev 10:7 In the Days of the Voice of the Seventh Angel, when he shall Begin to Sound [trumpet], the MYSTERY of God should be FINISHED, as he has declared to his servants the prophets.

1Co 15:51 Behold, I SHOW you a MYSTERY; We will not all sleep [die], but we will all be CHANGED,

1Cor 15:52 In a moment, in the Twinkling of an Eye, AT the LAST TRUMP: for the TRUMPET WILL SOUND, and the DEAD WILL BE RAISED incorruptible, and WE will be CHANGED.

 1Thes 4:15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that WE WHICH ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN until the COMING of the Lord WILL NOT PRECEDE* THOSE which are Asleep [DEAD][prevent G5348=go before, precede, anticipate]

1Thes 4:16 For the LORD HIMSELF WILL DESCEND FROM HEAVEN WITH A SHOUT, with the VOICE of the archangel, and with the TRUMP of God: and the DEAD IN CHRIST WILL RISE FIRST: [resurrection]

1Thes 4:17 THEN WE which are ALIVE [and] REMAIN will be CAUGHT UP TOGETHER with THEM in the CLOUDS, to MEET the Lord in the AIR: and so will we EVER BE WITH the Lord. [“rapture”]

1Cor 15:23 Every man in his own order: Christ the first fruits; afterward they that are Christ’s AT HIS COMING.

Rev 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the THOUSAND YEARS WERE FINISHED. THIS [IS] THE FIRST RESURRECTION.

JESUS TAKES BACK CHURCH, POWER & KINGDOM AT 7TH TRUMPET

Rev 11:15 And the SEVENTH ANGEL SOUNDED [the Trumpet]; and there were GREAT VOICES in heaven, saying, The KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD ARE BECOME THE KINGDOMS OF OUR LORD, and of his Christ; and HE will reign forever and ever.

1Co 15:24 THEN COMES THE END, WHEN he shall have DELIVERED UP THE KINGDOM TO GOD, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

Rev 11:17 Saying, We give you thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which is, and was, and are to come; because YOU HAVE TAKEN TO YOU YOUR GREAT POWER AND HAVE REIGNED.

Rev 11:18 And the NATIONS were Angry your WRATH IS COME, and the time of the dead, that they should be JUDGED and that You should GIVE REWARD to your SERVANTS THE PROPHETS, and to the SAINTS, AND them that fear your name, small and great; and should DESTROY THEM which DESTROY THE EARTH.

Rev 11:19 The TEMPLE OF GOD WAS OPENED IN HEAVEN, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there was LIGHTNING, and VOICES, and THUNDERING, and an EARTHQUAKE, and GREAT HAIL.

Luke 21:34 TAKE HEED to YOURSELVES, lest …THAT DAY come UPON YOU UNAWARES.

LORD’S WRATH

Zephaniah 1:18 Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD’S wrath; but the whole land will be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he will make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

Rev 19:15 And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he TREADS THE WINE PRESS OF THE FIERCENESS AND WRATH OF ALMIGHTY GOD.

2Pe 3:7 BUT THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH, WHICH ARE NOW, BY THE SAME WORD ARE KEPT IN STORE, RESERVED UNTO FIRE AGAINST THE DAY OF JUDGMENT AND PERDITION OF UNGODLY MEN.

2Pe 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that ONE DAY [IS] WITH THE LORD AS A THOUSAND YEARS, AND A THOUSAND YEARS AS ONE DAY.

2Pe 3:10 But the DAY OF THE LORD WILL COME AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT; in the which the HEAVENS SHALL PASS AWAY with a GREAT NOISE, AND THE ELEMENTS SHALL MELT WITH FERVENT HEAT, THE EARTH ALSO AND THE WORKS THAT ARE THEREIN SHALL BE BURNED UP.

2Pe 3:12 Looking FOR and hasting unto THE COMING OF THE DAY OF GOD, WHEREIN THE HEAVENS BEING ON FIRE SHALL BE DISSOLVED, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat

THOUSAND YEAR REIGN

Rev 20:4 And [John] saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and JUDGEMENT was given to THEM: and [I saw] the SOULS of them that were BEHEADED for the Witness of Jesus, AND for the WORD of God, AND which had NOT Worshiped the Beast, Neither His Image, neither had received [his] mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and THEY LIVED AND REIGNED WITH CHRIST A THOUSAND YEARS.

Rev 20:6 KJV – Blessed and holy [is] he that hath part in the FIRST RESURRECTION: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall REIGN WITH HIM A THOUSAND YEARS.


Rev 2:25 That which you have [already] HOLD FAST till I come.

Rev 2:26 And he that OVERCOMES, and keeps my works to the end, to him will I GIVE POWER OVER THE NATIONS:

Rev 2:27 And he RULE THEM WITH A ROD OF IRON; as the vessels of a potter they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.

 


Dan 7:13 [Daniel] saw in the night visions, and, behold, [one] like the Son of man CAME WITH THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

Dan 7:14 And there was given [Jesus] dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion [is] an EVERLASTING DOMINION, WHICH WILL NOT PASS AWAY, AND HIS KINGDOM [THAT] WHICH WILL NOT BE DESTROYED
