When speaking or teaching about the End Times event known as the pre-tribulation Rapture in the world today causes a mixture of reactions from those people that hear this message. Some people get all bent out of shape because they will point out that there is no such word as !Rapture! in the "oly #ible while others will argue that there is no such teaching of the Rapture at all taught in The "oly #ible. Still other people will claim that all of these events have already taken place in $% &' after the fall of (erusalem at the hands of the Roman Empire.The "oly #ible )T"E W*R' *+ ,*' does indeed teach of a sudden event in which The *R' (ES/S 0"R1ST himself descends from heaven to gather together both the dead in 0hrist )saints who have already died and those who are alive and remain )born-again believers in (esus 0hrist !The 0hurch2#ride of 0hrist! by catching them up into the clouds to meet the *R' in the air and to be with the *R' forever.

+or the ord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout with the voice of the archangel and with the trump of ,od5 and the dead in 0hrist shall rise first5
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the ord in the air5 and so shall we ever be with the ord.
