    Yes, and it is accelerating.

    The falling away can also refer to general faith in which people are turning away from even acknowledging any God whatsoever, no matter their religious background, and embracing agnosticism/atheism.



    Revelation 22:17a The Spirit and Bride are now saying, "Come!" The ones who hear are now saying, "Come!" The ones who thirst are now saying, "Come!" so come LORD Jesus !

    the only thing left to take the place of the hole in their heart is their own personal intellect and ego

    So does this mean the rapture has to happen around a new moon? So every month there are only two days the rapture could happen, if they pass we have to wait another month?

    Hebrews 12:3-4
    For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin.

    Uh, Devin, this is a pre-Trib board.

We believe in a literal 7 year Tribulation period, after the instantaneous Rapture of all regenerated believers in unison, during which God finishes His discipline of Israel, protects Israel, and finalizes His judgments on the unbelieving world. Salvation will remain open to people trusting in Jesus for salvation up to the Second Coming.
    No suggestions of living righteously enough for the rapture, or salvation unattainable after the Rapture is allowed.
    All discussions on these topics must follow suit. Jesus said we won't know the day nor hour of His return and always be ready keeping watch.

    John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

    Hey Buzzard, is it alright if we make a thread to discuss the timing of the rapture in a friendly brothers-in-Christ manner? Sorry, but I cant see it being pre-trib (maybe you guys can convince me). The verses on the rapture like in Thessalonians dont say it is pre-trib, so I don't understand how they can be used as proof for pre-trib. There's also some practical concerns, like airplanes are going to crash. all traffic will crash, killing people cause of the beamed up drivers. medics doing surgery will disappear, leaving their patient to die? the Bible doesn't speak of this, so I don't see how it is believable.

    The most direct verse is Revelation 3:10 -
    Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
    The faithful church is kept from the tribulation.

    Yes Rature Dave hit the spot.
    post Trib Dude, why do you think God would not keep us from the Hour of Temptation if we have kept is word?

    We don't discuss other rapture positions here, per the rules

    wow, a cliffnote on the rapture, in detail, i must get my printer working. Its there, plain as day, the twinkling of an eye is about seven years long. Jesus only returns once not twice. the pretribulation rapture[since GOD is eternal] and the return of the Christ to end the tribulation is one event.

    the twinkling of an eye is the split second moment of the rapture

    Jesus returns in the sky once, touches down on the ground once

    hi, hope i'm not far into darkness,and yes there is no scripture to back me up, but i can not help but feel that since there is no time in eternity that at the moment of the rapture,while we meet Jesus in the air, seven years has just passed on earth.
