The Rapture Question

What is your view on the rapture? Is it Pre tribulation, middle tribulation or post tribulation rapture? and why?

This issue has been debated for the longest and the reason it is still being hotly debated is because Jesus said that no one really knows when Jesus would come. What I am sure of is that Jesus is coming.

The Bible says we dont know the times and dates only the Father knows.

Matthew 24:36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son,[f] but only the Father. 37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.

   42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

People are so concerned about being left behind some even asking is it pre, mid or post. What God commands us is to be ready when He comes. Don’t get so caught up in being left behind, rather ask yourself, am I being left out on what God is doing in the earth today to advance His kingdom.

Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
