There may be a staged 'rapture' event.

It would be a big event similar to the moon landing and 9/11, all 'live' on television...

staged in an effort to cause many Christians to feel as if they have been 'left-behind'.


The Bible does not describe a mysterious 'rapture'.

The Bible clearly prophesies about resurrections: Ezekiel 37:1-14, Acts 24:15, Philippians 3:11, 2 Timothy 2:18.

Christ demonstrated that the prophecy will take place, by dying and rising again.


And Paul let us know that alive people would also rise to glory among those resurrected.

No television will be needed to see the true event, everyone will see; it is the great return of the captives to Israel;
