Lord, What About the Rapture (or Second Coming)

On May 3, 2008, I inquired of the Lord about the rapture (or second coming - what I think of as the rapture). I had been reading about the end times and wanted to better understand what was to come. “Lord, how will the others not know where we have gone – won’t they hear Your shout and the trumpet blast when You call us home to You?

The others will hear a whooshing sound, that is all, for they cannot hear My voice or My trumpet as My children can. (Matthew 24:40–41) In one instant My children will be taken up and the world will be cast into gross darkness. (Jeremiah 13:16) Then shall My wrath fall upon those left behind in terrible ways for they have denied Me, they know not My ways nor My Name. Nay, My children shall not be left behind to suffer My wrath in that time for Jesus bore My wrath for you, but not for wicked unbelievers. 

A great and terrible day is coming in the earth. There shall be great confusion and rioting in that time for those left behind will not know what to believe and will panic. They shall cry to Me but I shall not hear them for I know them not, for they have already made their path and chosen the way they shall live it and My time of grace upon men will have ended.

The Beast shall arise upon the earth and a terrible time will be, such as nothing your mind could ever comprehend for it is truly beyond the comprehension of man to be given over into the hands of Satan himself and not die! But My children shall not see that day for they will be here with Me in Heaven.

The Rapture will indeed happen in the blink of an eye as My Word says, one second two will be working together in a field and the next second one will be gone and no one left on earth will know why. Their minds too shall I darken in those days. The gross darkness you saw in your spirit (a vision I had had in January  during worship of a large dark blanket descending towards earth - really eerie – in my spirit I immediately thought gross darkness) will come and they will have eyes that do not see and ears that do not hear.

They will blindly follow the anti-Christ to their eternal destruction because they have not known Me nor called upon My Name while there was still time.

Author’s Note:  I found this interesting.  When I looked up scriptures containing the phrase “gross darkness,” there is one other reference in the KJV at Isaiah 60:2:  For, behold, the darkness {Strong’s H2822: from the Hebrew word hesek meaning death, misery, destruction, ignorance, sorrow, wickedness or obscurity} shall cover the earth, andgross darkness {Strong’s H6205: from the Hebrew arapel (says it probably derived from the H6201 arap meaning to DROP DOWN)meaning dark, dark cloud, darkness, gross darkness or thick darkness}the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon theeI believe this was the meaning of the vision of the blanket of darkness I saw in my spirit descending upon the earth – as the darkness falls upon the earth, God’s glory is arising and shining ever brighter upon His Bride in this time.


  1. I have never understood the "rapture" reference. (I'd be more than happy for it to occur! just don't understand what is meant by that term, or even where it came from?)
    And surely there are many folk who've never heard of Christ Jesus, and therefore wouldn't know any better? What about infants and small children?
    If they haven't even the power of speech to say His Name, how could they be left to suffer what we've all seen in visions? Yes, me too.
    This seems an iniquitous way to deal with the darkness upon humankind's collective soul; to put in such strict criteria for "ascension" or the rapture, yet I see so many will be excluded purely on ignorance. One thing I've learnt, is that God's Laws are completely opposite to human laws, so I am not too worried about being either "taken" or "left behind". Personally I'd rather "check out" and watch from afar, which is what I think the majority will be doing, rather than having their physical bodies cluttering up the higher vibrationary levels through an ascension process! Not too many of us would be excited about taking these physical bodies with us anyway. So "rapture" simply doesn't make sense to me on so many levels, but perhaps I'm not understanding some key points.

  2. @Kayenne: Yes there is no exact word of Rapture in the Bible but we Christians believed that this event was clearly demonstrated in I Thess. 4:13
    Regarding the innocent young ones, Jesus already made his decision on them. With His statement I believe He is saying they are already mine.
    Luke 18:16 But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.

  4. I believe in the Rapture too but i believe it will be after the tribulation and after the Anti Christ annouces himself as god..there has to be the great falling away..we are seeing that now..then the third temple must be built and the anti-christ must announce himself as god... and the false prophet must do false signs and wonders as to deceive everyone and then the idol the abomination of desolation must threaten that everyone must worship the beast or die and then i believe is when the great tribulation will begin on the earth because Christians and the human race will have to decided whether to keep their allegiance to God or take the mark of the beast where they can neither buy or sell without it and i believe at that point this is during the 7 year peace treaty actually during the mid mark after the 3 1/2 years..Also in matthew 24 there must be many signs on this earth during all this tribulation also before the coming of the Son of Man on the clouds such as what happens with the sun and the moon and the tribulation on Earth all before Jesus Returns...Christians need to have it in their heart settled whom they will live and die should be Jesus till the end.
    Revelations 13:10 also says New Living Translation
    Anyone who is destined for prison will be taken to prison. Anyone destined to die by the sword will die by the sword. This means that God's holy people must endure persecution patiently and remain faithful.
    King James Bible
    He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
