This is usually not something I wouldn't normally watch but I did today.
It is very riveting!

If the Second Coming does happen in 2015, we would have to be raptured like now. The last lunar eclipse in the tetrad is Sept 28, 2015. So, the Rapture would have to take place in under 2 months for Jesus to come back in 2015. I believe Isaiah 17 and Psalm 83 takes place before the Rapture and 7 yr trib. The Antichrist also has to make his appearance to confirm the covenant of Daniel 9:27 which starts the last 7 years. It doesn't look like there will be enough time for these events to take before Jesus can come back by Sept 28th 2015 at the last blood moon.
I've had the same thoughts, as I'm sure many have. From MY (admittedly limited) understanding, Isaiah 17 and Ps 83 don't NEED to happen before the trib and certainly not before the rapture. They could happen after each or both. Now, for the AC . . . I lean more strongly that he can't rear his ugly face until we're gone because of 2 Thessalonians 2, which COULD happen quickly -- a world leader coming into power pretty quickly and enforcing a peace treaty. Could still happen with the two months we have left. Yikes . . . hope I don't get in trouble here.

Jesus said "all these things," the events of the end, would be seen by the generation that was around when the fig tree (assumed to be the restoration of Israel) blossomed in 1948. At least, that's the way many prophecy buffs interpret it.
Many also believe a generation is 40 years, but there are others who say it could be 70 years.
If 70 years is the max for a generation, doesn't the rapture have to happen by 2011? (Subtracting seven years from 2018). Or have people misread and/or misinterpreted the scripture?
What thinkest thou?
If a generation is 70 yrs, I don't believe that Jesus would wait the entire 70 yrs to come back. He said that generation wouldn't die. So, I believe He comes back well within the generation.

Hey - that's not very nice...
Even I sometimes get nervous when I consider the actual thought of the Rapture happening this very minute and I usually look with great anticipation for the Lord's return and know in my heart that in the blink of an eye all nerves will be settled.
It wasn't meant to be mean, just to the point. :hat
To me (I'm super logical) why participate in a forum called 'Rapture Ready' if you are scared to consider the posiblity it is close. And yes I agree it is normal to be nervous. I'm just saying if watching Hadley is too much, how do you handle all these threads?

Assuming we're correct in our understanding of what a generation is. If it is indeed 70 years, which sounds like the most widely accepted, then 2018 would be the absolute latest for His return.
I hope it's sooner, though. :)

I feel uneasy about setting a "deadline" for Christ's Second Coming or the Rapture; God has His own timetable and will come when He wills it.
I thought that date setting was a no-no here.
Like I've said before, no one know the hour or day.
Honestly I get tired of reading this over and over.

Date setting is a no-no! I think most of us truly understand that only God knows the hour but we, being "of the flesh" and desiring to be with our Lord and Savior, can't help but get "caught up" in every possible mention of our Lord Jesus imminent return! The mods will close the thread if they determine the postings are in violation of the rules. Until then, let's just bask in the joy and excitement we feel when others share their views on this topic.:preach
