What is rapture? Rapture is that most amazing and spectacular moment when Christ will fetch His church to meet Him on the air and spare it the horrors and extreme sufferings of the seven years of Great Tribulation. The church here is not any physical structure but the people who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior and have lived their lives according to His will. It will not be witnessed by people around the world but will happen in an instance, in a twinkling of the eye. This is not the second coming of Jesus Christ. This is the rapture of His church which is described in the Bible as spotless, without blemish and wrinkle free (referring to the white robe of righteousness of true Christians). This is described by Paul in 1Thessalonians 4: 16-17, "For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever." There will be pandemonium and chaos around the world as people who will be left behind will suddenly realize the truth of the word of God. And a great dread will come upon them from the expectation of the onset of the Great Tribulation. There will be bedlam and great confusion as millions will suddenly vanish in thin air and all the newspapers the morning after will scream with headlines of "Millions Disappear, Vanish Into Thin Air." The people who disregarded the preachings and warnings of well meaning Christians will rue the day that they did not accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior. Their homemade philosophies in life will become as hollow as the emptiness they will feel when they realize that they were left behind.
