Many books have been written concerning the rapture and it is a billiondollar business. Is the rapture theory Biblical? or is it a mystical HarryPotter like fairy tale? both Harry Potter books and the rapture books can betrace back to the occult.The rapture books have little to do with the Second Advent of Christ. Theyare more about politics than theology, more about man’s involvement inworld affairs than God’s involvement, more about fiction than Bible truth.Books by Tim Lahaye, John Hagee, Pat Robinson, Jack van Impe, BennieHinn, Jerry Jenkins, Thomas Ice, Ed Hinson, Hal Lindsey, Ken Copeland,Ken Hagin, Rex Humbard, Grant Jefferies, John Walvoord, Rod Parsley,Dave Hunt, Clarence Larkin, Mark Hitchcock, and most of the Armageddonand Last days events books, are used to promote an anti-reformation, anti-protestant and Anti-Christ doctrine.What is the difference between the Rapture and the Second coming?The Second coming of Christ is often confused with the Rapture… Theword rapture does not appear in the Bible but some people have often usedthe Greek word harpazo – caught up for the rapture
Harpazo – caught up and second coming is the same event. Let merepeat…SAME EVENT
1Thess.4:16 For the Lord himself shall descendfrom heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with thetrump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first, 17 Then we which arealive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, tomeet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord

The Bible is clear.. When Jesus returns… He will return the same way as Heleft.
Act 1: 9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, hewas taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.Vs.10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up,behold, two men stood by them in white apparel:Vs.11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up intoheaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall socome in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven
Jesus was taken or caught up in a cloud… The Greek word for caught up inActs 1:11 isanalambanO, - one being taken up.Is there a conspiracy to keep the truth about the blessed hope hidden? Isthe rapture Biblical? The Second Coming of Christ is mention or alluded to
