THE RAPTURE WATCH
16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
1 Corinthians 15:52 (KJV)
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 (NIV)
16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lordforever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.
The Last Trump
*The last trump referred to here is the last trump- trumpet call BEFORE the 7 Year Tribulation. The trumpet sound referred to in 1 Corinthians above is the trumpet call of the Church-all those who have received Jesus Christ as their savior- according to Romans 10:9-10 to be Raptured up into the Air with the Lord escaping the Tribulation period. Is it really just a coincidence- that our President's name is "Trump"? Is God trying to tell us something- clues- of the coming Rapture prophesied over 2,000 years ago?
The Church with God (After the Rapture)
The Church (the Christians- all those saved) will descend from the Clouds following the Heavenly Warrior- Jesus Christ's 2nd Return at the end of the 7 Year Tribulation to His land- His people- the Jews- who will by that time have received Him as their Savior.
Hell on Earth and the Antichrist
Unfortunately 2/3 of the Jews will perish during this 7 year Tribulation period- many will be saved- many will accept Jesus Christ as their savior once the Antichrist desecrates the Temple, claims himself as God, and commands everyone to take the Mark of the Beast. Anyone who does take that mark of the beast will lose their eternal salvation and burn in hell for eternity. Anyone who doesn't - will be persecuted and won't be able to buy or sell anything.
The Great Tribulation
It will be hell on earth- when the Antichrist sits at the throne of the 3rd Temple and declares himself God, desecrating the temple- the real God- the Heavenly Warrior- will pour out his wrath- the Great Tribulation- 2/3 of the world's population who are left here on earth will die through war, famine, pestilence and disease.
Will happen- before all of that takes place. Right now- is a window of opportunity- to escape the coming Tribulation. Right now- the Jews and unbelievers- still have a chance to get saved and get Raptured up before the Tribulation.
All of the biblical signs indicate the Rapture- is imminent- although- nobody knows-not even the Angels in Heaven of the exact date and time of the Rapture-but we do know the season- and we are in that season- right now- it could happen at any moment- once that happens- anyone left unsaved- will be- in- the Tribulation.
Jesus Christ's 2nd Return (At the End of the 7 Year Tribulation
One thing is for certain- after the Rapture- at the end of that 7 Year Tribulation period- Jesus Christ- the King of all kings and Lord of all Lords- will return to Jerusalem- to Reign for 1000 years- with the Saints and His Church- all those saved- the Millennium.
Read this quick guide on the Rapture- and gain a better understanding of this EPIC event that will happen soon- and could happen at any moment.
The Feast of Trumpets- the 7 Trumpet Judgments
These happen at the END of the 7 Year Tribulation beginning with Revelation 8:6 in the Book of Revelation of the Holy Bible. The 7th Trumpet signals the King of all kings Return, Jesus Christ's return to His people- the Jews -in Jerusalem. The Jews will have received Jesus Christ as their savior by this time- they will have already witnessed the Antichrist as the false God. The Lord is returning with the Church to His chosen Land and His chosen people-the Jews- in Jerusalem. These 7 Trumpet Judgments will also signal judgment- God's wrath- on everyone who opposed His people- the Jews- everyone who rejected His offering of eternal salvation- including the massive armies gathered together against Israel. Two Billion people will die in the Tribulation period as a result of wars, famine, plagues, and God's wrath at Armageddon.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 NASB
16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.
