“What Triggers The Rapture”Carl Worline (27 Sep 2012)

In this article a Jewish believer in Jesus who has had for 33+ years preached about prophecy gives a very interesting theory on the beginning of the Apocalypse and the Rapture.

He sets very specific times which I think are good probabilities of being correct. Thanks to Carl Worline.

What Triggers The Rapture

Hi Everybody,
I just read an outstanding article on the Anakypto Forum by Neil Lipkin, a messianic Jew end-times prophecy expert (gee, I like this guy already just based on his title), about what triggers the rapture.  He has a really fascinating idea, which he backs up with a lot of solid scripture.  What if the rapture isn’t tied to one of the Jewish feasts?  What if it is tied to the “sudden destruction” instead?  When you stop and think about it, this really makes a lot of sense.  It also ties up some loose ends that didn’t seem to fit too well in prophecy.
Something has always bothered me when I try to picture God finally pulling the trigger that starts the rapture.  Something like 7 people on average die every second on the earth, so there is a constant trickle of souls arriving in heaven all the time.  If God were to pull the trigger there will be someone who will be the last soul to make it into heaven as the Age of Grace slams shut.  There will also be that soul (or souls) that missed it by a split second, as well as many souls who missed it by just a few more seconds.  I would think that it would be pretty tough for God to pull that trigger, knowing that every second He delayed allows more souls to make it to heaven.  On the other hand, if God were to pull out the Restrainer (Holy Spirit), then in a matter of a very short time the free will of evil in men will, most certainly, push the button that will start the war that will bring the “sudden destruction.”  It will not be God who determines the precise instant that the Age of Grace ends, it will be man.  God will come to the rescue by allowing the Groom to snatch away the Bride at the last possible instant.
When you stop and think about it, if the rapture were tied to one of the Jewish feasts, there would be a relatively small window as to when the rapture could occur each year.  If the rapture were tied to the moment the “sudden destruction,” then the day and hour would truly be something that no man could know the day or hour of.  It could also be something that we could truly watch for by knowing the seasons and watching the development of current events in the world.
Here is the article I was talking about.  At the end of the article is a link to an hour long video that talks about what is in the article.  This guy is really impressive to read, and even more impressive to listen to:

  2. I felt moved to give a rather lengthy response and comment because of a trend I see amongst us christians and especially those of us looking for the coming of the Lord Jesus both in the Rapture and the second coming.

    As much as we are all looking forward with excitement at the thought of the Rapture,- and as God is such a good and loving God that He is has given us clues as to when it shall be,we can at best narrow down the times, seasons and days. Be aware that to claim that a human being no matter who it is not even Israel can claim to influence God by their behaviour and make Him move to change His perfect prophecied plan depending on His emotional response to us is to reduce God to our level of humanity with all its shortcomings and just as bad, it makes void Jesus and all He suffered and did to complete God’s plan for all creation. Israel, America and this whole world is simply responding as prophecied to the truths of God’s word. It doesnt change God or His perfect plan.

    God,- thank God for His Grace and Mercy towards our ignorance, already moved and did all He was ever going to do in the person of Jesus Christ. It is finished. The appointed times and events are set and done. Ours is just to study them out to best discover which event occurs when.

    Alot of the current information on christian websites now are looking for ways to escape the coming difficulties through the Rapture.

    Yes it is going to get very difficult and ugly in this world before the Rapture happens. Yet that is nothing compared to the judgements coming in Revelations 7 onwards. The Rapture is NOT going to save us from persecution, economic meltdown, wars no matter where they are, diseases,pestilences, beasts of the field, geophysical events, and all Jesus guaranteed would happen PRETRIBULATION.

    Believe me before I emigrated to the U.K in the deveolping country of Africa that I came from I witnessed horrors of horrors- yet people could still live fairly comfortably outside the political upheaval. It was and is nothing compared to what we know of the coming wrath of God. So I hope we can get more information narrowing down times and less attempts to change God.

    • All these analyses miss one point.Only Jews were involved in the fulfillment of the first 4 Feasts so it makes sense that only jews will be involved in the fulfillment of the Fall Feasts.The Rapture is defined by Paul as a mystery not a definite prophesied day from the O.T. or the Gospels.Trying to fit it into the Fall Feasts will always lead to frustration as I was for about 30 years.One good point of the article was that the spring Feasts were fulfilled in one season it can be expected that the fall Feasts will unfold in a short season of time and will involve the redemption of the Jews, not the Body of Christ.

  3. The lord Himself doesn’t pray for a rapture before tribulation.

    Joh. 17:15
    15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

    Take them out stands towards keep them from.

    Rev. 3:10
    10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

    Also in these lines of Rev. The Lord speaks of keeping from and not taken away.
