|This is just a short snippet on this subject, I have a longer article under the "Rapture of the church" tab. Also you can listen to the mp3's above which were recently aired on "Echoes of the Spirit" radio heard on WACE 730am. Both are important in reference to this subject.
Could the Rapture occur in 2012? Of course it could and I would even go so far as saying it's likely, but no one now or ever, will be able to predict the day or hour, because it would make Jesus a liar. Jesus said even he did not know the day or hour but only his father does. Harold Camping(a previous prognosticator of the Rapture occurring in 1994),was wrong three times now and should be discounted as a false prophet.
It is not a problem with looking at the end time signs and saying this could be the year. In fact it is the duty of a real Christian to be on guard and ready at all times, by looking for the many signs that Jesus left us. Now Jesus could Rapture his ready followers the day before Harold Camping says or the day after, but it's not going to happen on "Harold's day" as much as he may want to believe it. In fact Harold Campings false prophecy is prophecy fulfilled as Jesus said in Luke 21:8 "many will come in my name saying the the time has come", but Jesus then said don't follow them!
Now Jesus did not say don't look for the signs of my soon return and or don't talk about them, in fact he said when you see the signs to "look up". There is a difference between claiming to know "the day," and the general time frame. So it is obvious that Jesus was speaking of the date setters specifically.
Can we know the season or the year or general time frame? Yes I think so, in fact I think we are required to do so. The signs are certainly lined up right now and the fact that the enemies of God and the Jews right now are going to attempt to force Israel to give up Jerusalem soon, is one last piece of the puzzle, because we see in scripture that God won't let this happen without unleashing major wrath on the world, such as described at the 6th seal. Could Jesus come before this? Of course and in fact there is a better chance of that, then Jesus coming on any day that any man sets.
It should be very obvious to anyone who reads the scripture, is that the 6th seal of Revelation has not been broken yet. If this is not clear to you just look at Revelation 6:12-17 and 7th chapter and you can see for yourself that the sixth seal is described as a massive worldwide earthquake along with stars falling to earth. You would know if this had happened already. Also simultaneously with it's breaking, the sky will recede as a scroll so everyone will see Jesus coming in the air and everyone on earth will be crying out(mourning), because of the massive destruction that will ensue. They also cry out and proclaim for themselves the great day of God's wrath has arrived. This will be the start of the last great seven year tribulation.
If you want to be even more perfect and literal on the Rapture, come to the realization that we are living in between the 5th and 6th seals already and you will find it is still a pre-tribulation Rapture, but it's not where most pre-tribbers think it's going to happen, which they say is before the 1st seal. Just study the 5th seal alone and you will see it can't be a future event, instead it's long since been broken.
Also the same lull in time in between Daniels 69th & 70th week, matches perfectly with the Revelatory lull in time we are in between now which is in between the 5th and 6th seal, because Revelation completes all previous end-time prophesy.
Now with the enemies of the Jews and God, trying to force them into giving up half of Jerusalem and give it to the Palestinians, we can see the first phase of Jesus soon return is even that much closer. Since we see no evidence in the entire book of Revelation that the Jews will voluntarily give up half the city, we know this will not happen in Sept. 2011. Instead what is more likely to happen, is that the enemies of God and Israel, will force God to intervene with a wrath the world has not heretofore seen. This will likely make the Rapture and the breaking of the sixth seal a sooner than later occurrence.
So the Pretribulation-Pre Wrath 6th Rapture and seal is about to occur and be broken any day now, but will be precluded by the "last trumpet" of 1 Corinthians 15:52 and 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18. Some have incorrectly identified this last trumpet as being something that occurs after the 7th angel trumpet of Revelation 11:15, but that can't be confused with the one of a kind, and unique 'Jesus trumpet' that must be blown at the 6th seal or seconds before the 6th seal is broken.
AN EARTH-SHATTERING CALAMITY IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN. IT IS GOING TO BE SO FRIGHTENING, WE ARE ALL GOING TO TREMBLE. EVEN THE GODLIEST AMONG US.
This is a partial quote by David Wilkerson, founder of Teen Challenge and N.Y.C. Times Square church, from a March 23,2009 newsletter. He continued:
"For ten years I have been warning about a thousand fires coming to New York City. It will engulf the whole megaplex, including areas of New Jersey and Connecticut. Major cities all across America will experience riots and blazing fires ? such as we saw in Watts, Los Angeles, years ago. There will be riots and fires in cities worldwide"......
David Wilkerson, who was recently killed in an auto accident, was one of the few respected modern day prophets who had a track record of following the word and his prophesies were always based in scripture. This newer prophesy of Dave's is not describing a nuclear attack, though it may sound that way, and the main reason is, it is worldwide. He isn't saying this either, but some will conclude this because much of the time we seem eager to credit things that man can do instead of what God himself is going to do directly. But much of this prophesy, which is just a few years old now, is already coming true right before our eyes with the worldwide rioting. It now even reached America. The discontent of the people is starting to be heard all over, but this is only the beginning. There are other fires coming to earth as well, not just from riots, but from the hand of God directly in the form of falling stars, as prophesied in Revelation.
