The Rapture Sign of 2017

Here is a very interesting article, scripturally accurate about the possibility of the Rapture of Jesus’ followers this year. I have bookmarked it and will consider the article for further review. I have also ordered the book “The Witness of the Stars” by E.W. Bullinger. I know that the Rapture is always being predicted, but this article looks like a valid argument!

Any thoughts?

  1. I do agree with you. I posted this as a debate item. Although again the writer says that the convergence will happen on a specific date, she does not state that that specific date is the event, but the season (to be fair to the writer). The bottom line is this is a non-essential. We will wait for the Lord and let Him do what is His Will! God Bless!

  2. May God bless you too! We will see the final judgment!

  3. Sorry, for misspellings… my autocorrect was set to german. :/ in any case may God Bless you.

  4. That is exacly my point. In the Rapture, we that we are still alive will be jointing Christ up in the Clouds. (we will be going up) after the tribulation Jesus will come down from the clouds to end it all and establish his millenial reign.
    Two different ocurences to pass in the future. Sign of times is for us to know that the time is near as you point out. But the Bible states no one but the father knows the time.

    The lady whose theory is canard as you suggested, says she is not giving a date; but sept 23rd, 2017 sounds like it … if you ask me that sounds like a date. My blog, as I decided long ago was going to be in spanish, however if you have google translate, try to find one that is entitled ( more or less ) End of time dates troughout history… many “respected” churches became anathema by trying to establish and contradict the Bible. And some like “family Radio” scammed many into selling their houses because the time was “set”.

    We have to differenciate form the rapture and the second coming as they are not the same and they definitely are separated in time.
    The rapture is for the Church to be hopeful that they wont suffer the tribulation and the horrible day of the Lord. Signs as earthquakes, famine, pandemics, hunger, wars, rumors of wars and terror definitely point to the end of times.
    The most decidely sign is it will become like the Noah times, Men only and continuosly striving to be bad. we are near, not there yet.
    So Rapture, anytime. The Day of the Lord after the rapture, when Israel says peace and security.
    So Zodiac signs, math, “meteors”, Not what the bible said would be signs for the end.

    Have a great Day. May God Bless you.

  5. True, however Christ will be coming down from the clouds.

  6. I agree with you that most of this is hooey. Upon further discussions with fellow Christians it appears to be simply a canard. The one part I slightly disagree with you is the “time and hour” scripture. The season is not mentioned. We as Christians can see that we are in a dire time with chaos happening all over the world. So we must see the return of Christ will be soon.
    God Bless!

  7. PS We are to see the “sign of times” not anything that is in the sky.

  8. Scripturally accurate?
    First:
    What about Jesus Expressedly telling the DIsciples
    Matt. 16:3 And in the morning, ‘It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and threatening.’You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret lthe signs of the times.
    In which He instructs this about HIS SECOND COMING not the Rapture whatsoever.

    Second: The rapture, as stated by Our Lord, will be “surprising” People wont even know when this will be:
    Matt. 24:36   “But concerning that day and hour gno one knows, not even the angels of heaven, hnor the Son,* ibut the Father only. 37 jFor as were the days of Noah, kso will be the coming of the Son of Man. 38 jFor as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, lmarrying and giving in marriage, until mthe day when Noah entered the ark, 39 and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, kso will be the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left. 41 nTwo women will be grinding oat the mill; one will be taken and one left. 42 Therefore, pstay awake, for you do not know on what day qyour Lord is coming. 43 rBut know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night sthe thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 Therefore you also must be tready, for uthe Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
    -> Maybe the Lord didn’t know quite well what he was talking about.
    -OR-
    1Th. 5:1   Now concerning wthe times and the seasons, brothers,* xyou have no need to have anything written to you. 2 For you yourselves are fully aware that ythe day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3 While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then zsudden destruction will come upon them aas labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 4 But you bare not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief.

    The Day of the Lord is the second coming, not the rapture, before this the rapture is mentioned… but its not the rapture itself.

    Third:

    Zodiac Signs?
    The Lord in the Old testament condemned the Worship of the constellations (Made up by the greeks! who says leo cannot be a goat if u follow the dots differently?)

    2Kings 23:5 And he deposed the priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to make offerings in the high places at the cities of Judah and around Jerusalem; those also who burned incense to Baal, to the sun and the moon and the constellations gand all the host of the heavens.

    Constellation word is: Zodiac signs
    GK H4655 | S H4208   מַזָּל   mazzāl   1x
    n.[f.]pl. [cf. 4666]. constellation (possibly of the zodiac signs).
    ☞  NIV | ESV | HCSB | NRSV | JPS | NKJV | KJV

    I dont know if the whole post was in fact sarcasm. But I have read really good posts here. Beacon apologetics, means a Light in defense of the bible’s true message. If it is not sarcasm. i would really like you to reconsider the text and what it says.

    May God Bless you all.
