2006 Brett Peterson Rapture Overview Slide 2 2006 Brett Peterson A few considerations - 2Pe 1:20 But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation This means that the Bible will interpret any symbolism and key phrases will be consistent (expositional consistency). Interpret scripture with scripture. Do not hold to tradition or theory without Biblical support. Lets get into the Word and see what God has revealed about the Last Days and the Rapture of the Church Slide 3 2006 Brett Peterson First, What is the Rapture? Slide 4 2006 Brett Peterson What is the Rapture? The Rapture: 1 Cor. 15:50 I declare to you, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. 51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed- - Slide 5 2006 Brett Peterson How will we be changed? 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. Slide 6 2006 Brett Peterson How will we be changed? 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. Rom 8:23 And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body. Slide 7 2006 Brett Peterson We will be changed in an instant, however the whole event of the Rapture may take longer He will come in the clouds There will be an announcement of His coming and a trumpet call The dead in Christ will rise first Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up(changed in an instant) Then we will be gathered together to meet the Lord in the air! 2Th 2:1 Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, Mat 24:31 "And He will send forth His angels with A GREAT TRUMPET and THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other. Mat 24:32 "Now learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near; Mat 24:33 so, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door. Mat 24:34 "Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. Slide 8 2006 Brett Peterson 1 Thess. 4:15 According to the Lord's own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 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. The main support for the Rapture is this verse Slide 9 2006 Brett Peterson 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together (gathered together) with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage each other with these words. Slide 10 2006 Brett Peterson 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 Therefore encourage each other with these words. Strong's 726. arpazw harpazo to seize:--catch (away, up), pluck, pull, take (by force), gathered. In Latin this is RAPIO. It is from rapio that we get the word Rapture.In Latin this is RAPIO. It is from rapio that we get the word Rapture. Thus, "Rapture" has the literal meaning of being caught up, gathered, or snatched away.Thus, "Rapture" has the literal meaning of being caught up, gathered, or snatched away. Slide 11 2006 Brett Peterson The Rapture is the most glorious event that will ever occur in history. It is when the Church (both those who have died and those who are alive, will be taken to be with Jesus Christ. This is the first resurrection. This is the glorious appearing of Jesus Christ to the world! When does this event occur? Slide 12 2006 Brett Peterson First, what do most Biblical scholars agree upon Whether pre-trib, post-trib, or pre-wrath, most pre- millennial scholars agree on the following timeline of events 2nd Coming of Christ Slide 13 2006 Brett Peterson The 70 th week 2nd Coming of Christ Abomination Pact Armageddon 1 Seals 1-7 Wrath 23 4 567 7 s Judgments s Slide 14 2006 Brett Peterson Seals one through five occur during the first half of the 70 th week of Daniel. The seven year period is divided into two halves separated by the abomination. The first half is anti-christ rule over Israel and most of the world. Slide 15 2006 Brett Peterson The second half is Gods judgment and wrath and Israel protected in the wilderness. Rev 12:6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she *had a place prepared by God, so that there she would be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days. Rev 12:14 But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she *was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. Note that the anti-christ has no power during the second half of the 70 th week, and God does not deal with Israel until after the abomination. Slide 16 2006 Brett Peterson The 1st 5 Seals are Broken, The Four Horsemen are Released All of this takes place in the first half of the 70 th week of Daniel. 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th White Horseman Red Horseman Black Horseman Pale Horseman Martyrs Mt. 24:5 Rev. 6:1-2 Ten nations give Anti- Christ powers. Anti-Christ makes his 7 year covenant with Israel. 70th week begins. Rev. 13 Rev. 11 Israel Rebuilds their temple Rev. 11:2-6 Two witnesses prophesy for 3.5 years.Likely Enoch and Elijah. (Mal. 4:5) or Moses and Elijah, both of whom were reported in Jewish tradition as having been taken up to God without dying. The LORDs secret burial of Moses (Deut 34:6) led to the tradition that he had not died but ascended; Elijahs being taken up is described in 2 Kings 2:1-12. Matt. 11:13-15;17:11&12 John 1:21 (John was not Elijah re-incarnated!) The two witnesses prophecy this entire time until the 6th seal is broken. Mt. 24:6-7a Rev. 6:3-4 3 of the 10 nations refuse to give Anti-Christ power, he comes against them with a sword and uproots them. Anti-Christ conquers. Rev. 13 Mt. 24:7b Rev. 6:5-6 Famine - This may lead to the implementation of the mark of the beast. Rev. 13:15-18 Mt. 24:7c-10 Rev. 6:7-8 Death by sword, hunger, & beasts of the earth. Rev. 13:15 This will be when those who refuse to receive the mark will starve and be killed by the anti-christ. Rev. 13:7-10 Lk. 21:16 Matt. 24:9-13 Rev. 6:9-11 Martyrs asking when the earth will be judged.

This is the first half of the 70 th week of Daniel! Then the sixth seal is brokenRevelation Chapter 6. The last half of the 70 th week of Daniel Gods wrath will be unleashed on this planet, and no one will have control. Rev 6:15 Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders (this includes the antichrist)and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; Rev 6:16 and they *said to the mountains and to the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; Rev 6:17 for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?"

Dan 7:24 'As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings. Daniel 7:25 'He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time. (this must be the first half of the 70 th week!) Slide 20 2006 Brett Peterson The antichrist will only have power for 3 and years! This is the first half of the 70 th week of Daniel!
