When is the Rapture?
Jesus will not come back for his church until the Antichrist is revealed.
by Craig C. White
When is the Rapture? When will Jesus return to gather his church? He won’t come today. But he could come tomorrow. He will come before the Great Tribulation. He will come when the trumpet sounds its last call. He will come after the devil is cast out of heaven. He will come after the Antichrist is revealed on earth! 2 Thessalonians answers this question; When is the Rapture?
2Th 2:1-3 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
When is the Rapture? The day that Christ comes back to earth (the day of Christ) to collect his church (our gathering together unto him) will not happen until Satan is cast out of Heaven (a falling away) when it becomes obvious that he is empowering a specific man on earth (that man of sin be revealed).
To put it very plainly, Jesus will not come back for his church until the Antichrist is revealed. To put it another way, the rapture of the church will not occur until the Antichrist is exposed. Or, the revelation of the Antichrist is the sign of the rapture! I know this comes as a shock to most of you. But it helps to put things into perspective. Like the church members in Thessalonica we can now understand the sign of Jesus’ coming for the rapture. Unlike the church members in Thessalonica we are much closer to that event. I expect to see the Antichrist exposed within the next few years. The world is quickly moving toward an end time scenario. After we see the Antichrist exposed for who he is, with lying wonders and blasphemy; then be on the lookout (Luk 21:28-36) for Jesus to come in the air, to raise the dead and rapture the living! Alleluia!
